The Southern California Relocation Dude, originally from Boston (I relocated here in 2005), shares what he knows about Carlsbad and other North San Diego County communities. Whether you are interested in specific Carlsbad neighborhoods (or other communities), things to do (e.g., shopping, touristy stuff, recreation, dining), or local housing market conditions, you'll find it here. Search for Carlsbad homes for sale (and other nearby coastal areas, too), learn about new neighborhoods, and get the scoop on what YOU should know about buying and selling a home in Carlsbad or nearby. Let me know how I can help you! And if you are planning a relocation to or from my area, you'll find lots of tips about relocation, whether you are a buyer or a seller. And if you have friends or family elsewhere in the country I can help them, too, by finding the right Realtor in my vast network. Just let me know how I can help them either buy or sell.
