Five Star Award Given To Top Agents
I was recently awarded the Prestigious 5 Star Award which is given to fewer than 7% of agents in San Diego. To receive this award a former client has to nominate an agent. The criteria includes; outstanding service, ethics, integrity,market knowledge and professional standards. It is an honor that a former clients have given me the highest evaluations in these areas. Unfortunately we are not told who the clients are that are interviewed. An independent agency contacts people after a sale sending an information request. I want to thank my clients for being so thoughtful in taking the time to recognize my service to them. I am committed to maintaining the high standards I have always set and adhered to in conducting my real estate business.
My hope is that 2013 can be a less stressful year for buyers who are trying to purchase a home and get financing and for sellers in getting their homes sold! So far we are seeing the market in a much more positive light than we have experienced in the past few years!
I have specialized in North San Diego County representing both buyers and sellers. I live in Santaluz (92127) a gated golf course community. I enjoy selling in Rancho Bernardo, Poway, Escondido, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar and Carmel Valley. I know the market well and include new construction when working with buyers negotiating thousands in upgrades and incentives for my buyers! I love the newer communities of Del Sur,4S Ranch and The Crosby!
If you need some real estate consultation in 2013 please let me know how I can help!

San Diego Board of Realtors Has Statistics for February 2012
The general comments and discussion among agent in the past 2 months has been “we are busy and inventory is limited.” Naturally if you have had your home for sale for some time and you hear someone say “inventory is limited” you wonder why you don’t have multiple offers. In general the basic rules always apply; If a home is in a popular neighborhoods, presents well and is priced with the market based on closed sales you should be seeing offers. Personally what I am experiencing is relocation buyers coming for good jobs with major employers in San Diego and people who are making offers and deciding to purchase rather than lease. The statistics will play themselves over the next few months. I do not see any radical jumps in pricing but I see many more pending sales in all prices ranges which is a positive sign for recovery.
The Housing Market Reports
I found an interesting article on DSNews about how reports are made about market trends. As agents we find many times the sites such as Trulia do not have accurate information. In addition some local papers provide inaccurate statistics. We recently sat down with a title rep who reviewed all the coastal sales and told us how several coastal zip codes are misrepresented in reporting. that is why it is always best to look at a particular neighborhood and prepare closed sales and trends for that particular specific area.

Pacific Carpet and Tile Cleaning
The LOGO these business owners use is “Best Cleaning on Earth.” I have used them for my personal residence and also have referred them to clients. They get outstanding results. My carpet looks like new after they are done. They are professional in every sense of the word. I found them on the Yelp site and after reading positive reviews gave them a call. Glad I did!
Keep It Green Pacific Carpet and Tile Cleaning uses a product that is soap free, odor free, all natural, colorless, non-allergenic, non-toxic and no VOCs according to their advertising.
They are offering free family room cleaning with 3 room minimum. If you have other cleaning needs they will offer you a discount if you call them for The Pagnotta Team Incentive 760-908-6795 or go to their website; www.PacificSteamClean.com
Modern Image Landscape
It is so important to have good curb appeal. This starts with having your yard looking its best. You may need to add some color with some fresh flowers at the entry to greet buyers and your lawns in their best condition. I have personally used Modern Image Landscape on several occasions to landscape my entire yard including building a pool. The quality of workmanship is fabulous. Chris O’Quinn is wonderful to work with; professional, polite and he communicates openly and frequently. He is offering 1 free month of landscape maintenance with a six month contract. To read more go to http://www.modernimagelandscape.com/ or call 619-247-3628. Jus mention The Pagnotta Team to get the white glove treatment!
Stage To Success
Many times people think of staging as decorating. Many times it is “un-decorating.” That said it takes a decorator/designer to see what needs to be done. Staging allows buyers to see space and imagine their lifestyle to be complimented by your home. Once your home is listed we will provide you with a complimentary staging service! If in the meantime you need help please call Catherine Smith at 858-442-1889 and let her work her magic!

Selecting Specific School Districts When Purchasing a Home
One of the most important criteria buyers give us when deciding what community or neighborhood they want is to research school districts. Once they have determined some of the top districts and then the top schools in the district they want to know what specific streets and neighborhoods are within the school boundaries. We always ask our clients to confirm the areas by calling the specific school district regional office. Most of the school websites have maps you can use also. This can become confusing and frustrating.
I was recently introduced to a new site; www.education.com. I did give this site a test drive with my address. The school selections were correct. I would still tell people to speak with a school representative as boundaries are subject to change. I know for a fact the high school in my area is suppose to be changed next year. Now I do not know if they will make the kids who are now attending their current school change or if they have any choices. All of these issues are cause for concern. When I had school age children we were committed to the Poway Unified School District. Within the district I wanted the kids to stay in their schools so they would not have to change clubs, activities or have to make new friends. Unfortunately as neighborhoods such as Del Sur, 4S Ranch and Santaluz grow they add more children to the district and there has to be an evaluation of the class sizes and whether the schools can accommodate the growth.

Santaluz Club Offers Outstanding Facilities For Members
We are always talking about how much we enjoy the Santaluz Club. So many times clients ask us to compare the area clubs. The membership director at Santaluz provided us with the following comparison chart. As always we encourage people to take a tour of the club they are considering joining. In addition it is really best to schedule a day of golf and the use of other club facilities. Santaluz does a great job teaming up guests with members so they can get a first hand report card of the facilities. Besides being a beautiful club, Santaluz is just so friendly and welcoming. If you have questions lets us know or if you want a formal tour we can help!
