Del Sur Community New Listing
Run, don’t walk to this charming Sentinel home in popular Del Sur. Sited on a hilltop lot with panoramic views of the hillsides you will have to remind yourself that you are in California and not the hills of Tuscany! Ocean breezes are yours along with watching the balloons from Del Mar passing in the afternoons. I am told that Del Sur is about 9 miles to the coast as the crow flies. This particular home was a model built by John Laing Luxury homes. Unfortunately this builder went under right at the start of this project. Davidson homes took over and built a few Sentinels and now Bridgefield homes plans to build some. None of the other Sentinels have the upgrades and location this home has! If you want the best this is it!
15688 Beltaire Lane is Loaded With Upgrades
The list is so long but includes travertine flooring in living areas, gorgeous granite counters in the kitchen and utility room, top of the line appliances including Thermador stainless 6 burner range top, convention/bake oven, micro, warming drawer, and 2 built in refrigerators again in gorgeous stainless. The stainless apron or farmhouse sink is my favorite. The cabinets are richly stained and the kitchen and master bathroom cabinets have wood drawer framework. The lighting fixtures were carefully chosen with many extra overhead canned lights. All the window coverings are custom and neutral so they will blend with any decor. The baths all have custom tile and or stone finishes. Multiple french doors lead to exterior patios. A gorgeous spa is located right outside the master suite on the ground floor. Did I mention views, views views! Enjoy the virtual tour by clicking on the link below:
Sentinels Are Extremely Popular
The Sentinels were first built in Santaluz. They were immediately popular and continue to be in high demand. There is nothing like them! They are clustered in a “pod” with cobblestone courtyard entry. They all have lovely patios that extend the living space. They are a perfect “turn key go” home where yard maintenance is at a minimum yet privacy and living style are at maximized. There is so much architectural interest with arch ways, stonework and multiple windows and french doors. Living in Santaluz I do specialize in both Santaluz and the Del Sur communities. The myriad of social activities and is endless. What I really like about Del Sur are the multiple parks and solar heated pools. A new park/pool is being built in walking distance to this home!

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!

“When we decided to look for a house in San Diego, we wanted to work with a realtor who would understand our particular concerns as we looked for a home on the west coast while still living on the east coast. We are so glad we found Gretchen!
Gretchen did an excellent job in understanding our needs and asked good questions around what we wanted in a home and community. Gretchen also carried out a number of pre-visits to look at potential homes even before we arrived in San Diego, knowing that we only had a limited time to view homes. When we finally arrived in San Diego, Gretchen came to our first meeting prepared with useful information and a spreadsheet of potential new homes outlining the pro and cons.
Gretchen showed a lot of patience while we figured out where we wanted to live. We never felt pressured. We did find our dream home in Rancho Santa Fe and Gretchen’s insights and knowledge were an extremely helpful part of the decision making process. We would definitely work with Gretchen again!”

It could include the proximity to local biking and hiking trails. I work with my clients to help them define what communities would work best for them.

Del Sur in 92127 is a Great Community
I just sold my second Presidio home by Standard Pacific. A Navy MD purchased the largest model on a view lot and is now having fun selecting all the finishing upgrades! This is an exceptional builder. The homes are detailed beautifully and full of value. The floor plans offer large kitchens and family rooms and the Del Sur rooms in patio areas integrate indoor spaces I love this community! It is coastal close ; 9 miles as the crow flies and due to this inland location enjoys perfect sunshine in the mornings! There are 6 parks open an multiple solar heated swimming pools. The Poway Schools are outstanding with the Del Sur Elementary School being #1 in the district. The tree lined streets and varying styles and color palettes of the himes make this duch an appealing community to call home.
The reason I selected the following home is because it has a fabulous floorplan with 4 spacious bedrooms and because it is what we call “standing inventory”. This home is an exceptional value and is loaded with upgrades at a phenomenal price! It also is located on a great lot. Let us show you this home and any others in Del Sur! This is the community you will fall in love with and want to call home!

Del Sur Elementary, one of Poway Unified School District Schools, is successfully providing individualized learning opportunities to their kindergarten students utilizing laptops. I was interested in learning more about how they used the laptops with the students and found this video to be really informative. Transforming Education
The way they use the laptops for math and storytelling is amazing. The students are learning to write stories and they have even written their own blogs.
The innovative way they are bringing individualized education to their Kindergarten class aligns up with the PUSD’s Strategic Vision. “
“Serving as the gateway to our students’ future, we will open, not restrict, the range of opportunities and choices and prepare them for success as they pursue their interest and passions upon graduation. “

They say some of the best and honest reviews of a business come from those who intereact with it every day. The same line of thinking can apply to a school review. The students at Del Sur Elementary room 137 shared their thoughts about their school in a post on
Del Sur Living
A top marketing team would have a challenge writing better descriptions of the Del Sur Elementary School. The students’ pride in their school, teachers and principal came through in their descriptions.
Excerpt from the article include the following:
Olivia B. “The Del Sur school is in a safe community. We have ways to keep ourselves healthy. We have a running club where
we run around a track, and each lap is a quarter mile. We have an art teacher and a music teacher who come on Wednesdays. We have fundraisers to raise money for our school. We have parent volunteers who help our classes. We have a wonderful principal, who does principal’s reading challenges, and that is with AR quiz points. We have learning websites, such as Lexia and Compass Learning.
We are a great school.”
Bede M. “Del Sur is a school is full of community and respect. We have wonderful art teachers, music teachers and many volunteers. We also have Compass Learning, Edmodo, Lexia and many more terrific learning websites. Our school loves reading. We have principal reading challenges and are in the midst of one right now. We have a great principal who encourages us to respect the world and learn. We also have computers galore. We have a computer lab, and little laptops in kindergarten classes and out in the hallways. I think Del Sur Elementary is a great school.”
Alex H. “People should know that Del Sur has over 500 students. They can also learn that we have principal’s reading challenge and running club. We care about everything and everyone in the world!!!!!!! We have a library in the classroom. We have another BIG library, too. We also have field day in June. We also have laptops. Our school is an indoor school. Indoor schools are usually in Indiana.”

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.
