A Family Business

Hi! This is my first post on I’ll be helping with the family business by applying my degree in writing to provide informative posts and helpful content to assist your home search.


Tam and Charlie Gilbert at San Onofre State Beach.

Sold: 9 Taywood Court, Laguna Niguel, CA 92629

The buyers of 9 Taywood Court are the kind of people that show there is good in this world! They are so nice and I was elated to help make their dream of owning a second home by the ocean in Southern California a reality.

Located in a quiet cul de sac in the coveted Beacon Hill neighborhood, this upgraded 2 bed, 2 bath condo features a gourmet kitchen with custom wood cabinets,  stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops and travertine stone floors. The tall ceilings in both the living room and upstairs bedrooms give this home an open and airy feeling.  The tennis courts, swimming pools, playground amenities and short 5 minute drive to the beach make this an ideal home away from home- a perfect place to bring the entire family together to create new memories.


Sold: 174 Jaripol Circle, Rancho Mission Viejo, CA 92694

Home sweet home in Sage At Esencia in Rancho Mission Viejo!

Last month we closed on our own personal condo in Rancho Mission Viejo; one of South Orange County’s newest master plan communities located within the rolling hillsides neighboring San Juan Capistrano ( near Ortega Highway and Antonio Parkway).  If you haven’t heard about it, I don’t blame you- especially if your home search criteria centers around beach cities.  However, the design of these energy efficient homes, coupled with amazing amenities ( The Hilltop Club, dog park, music venue, community farm, hiking trails etc. . .)  and the 2018 completion of a brand new K-8 school, may entice you to broaden your home search.  Read more about Rancho Mission Viejo here.

We’re beach lovers who have found home in The Ranch lifestyle and we’re already impressed by its value and market appreciation.

We have fresh insight into the community at Rancho Mission Viejo! Let us show you our neighborhood!



SOLD: 32831 Samuel Cr, Dana Point 92629

SOLD!  Another happy client made this prime listing in the Dana Hills neighborhood home sweet home.  It was love at first sight for my client who instantly saw the value in this beautiful turnkey, corner lot home.  We didn’t waste a minute in securing this home, and successfully took it off the market within 3 short days after listing.

The desirability of this home made it a hot ticket.  Talk about a great location!  This home boasts close proximity to easy shopping on Golden Lantern and Lantern Village, while being a short 5 minute drive to the beach.  The neighborhood is quiet and the back yard is truly a tranquil oasis with a beautifully finished pool and hot-tub, lush tropical landscaping, and built-in grill and fridge for outdoor entertaining.

The sale of this home is a testament that homes like this don’t last long on the market!  Detached, single-family homes, with NO HOA fees in Dana Point do still exist! Contact me for a customized home search.
