What Does Democracy Look Like In Your Neighborhood?

Real Estate Agent with Compass DRE# 01878185

November 3, 2020, will live in my memory forever because this was the day that the presidential election was decided. Whether your candidate won or not democracy was alive and well not only in my Hillcrest neighborhood, but in all of America.

 As I sat in my Hillcrest home, I heard car horns blaring in the distance.  I ran outside my condo and saw democracy in action! I saw a mixture of young and old, gay and straight, affluent and working class, native-born and immigrants, all of humanity celebrating democracy together. At that moment, I felt pride and a renewed sense of patriotism for this “American experiment in democracy,” and I realized that democracy is still alive. 

Hillcrest, a century-old neighborhood,  is located about three miles north of downtown San Diego, California.  The community is known as the heart of the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer plus) community with its numerous intimate cafés (such as the amazing Bread & Cie), coffee shops, specialty boutiques (The Village Hat Shop), coupled with a vibrant, eclectic populace. It’s thought of as a refuge for the misunderstood, the dispossessed, those longing to live their authentic lives. That's why so many call Hillcrest home.  

In addition to the support, Hillcrest offers its diverse inhabitants, its nearby world-famous attractions (such as the San Diego Zoo, pet- friendly Balboa Park, and its many museums), and its easy access to the Freeway and downtown San Diego.  

I’ve lived in Hillcrest for over a decade, and I love it.  If you're considering making this embodiment of American democracy your home, give me a call at 619-890-4885
