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!

Inventory is Down From Last Year

Get Ready to Pitche, Ditch and Donate
Lyn Santina, with Clutter Transformations, The SCC and myself decided Santaluz needed to spring clean. Have you been waiting to get rid of clothes you and your family no longer wear, fit or even like. How about electronics that are not working or have been replaced..get rid of all the STUFF! There are so many garages filled to the brim..wouldn’t it be nice to pull your car in and have the mental freedom of pitching all that stuff that has not been unpacked in 5 years! Since Alan and I move every few years I am a really good pitcher and ditcher. I also am a firm believer that those size 8 pants will never grace this body despite all the pilates classes and Ambers private sessions I take. So take advantage of this opportunity to shred documents, pitch electronics and household items. Click on the flyer below…and open the closets, garage and house this weekend and start sorting for this event. It is Saturday March 30, 9-123 and the Design Review Office, 14885 Caminto Del Sur. Shredding is limited to a few Banker’s Boxes and a $5.00 donation/box. Goodwill Industries of San Diego is graciously helping with this event. As a resident of Santaluz and active real estate agent here I wanted to support our community with this event!
12060 Pastoral Road Just Listed
If you are looking for a great investment or a retirement home run, don’t walk to this great property. What I enjoy the most from this home is all the natural light. It also has a great floor plan with wide open rooms and easy access to the back yard. Located in Seven Oaks, a senior (must be 55years+) neighborhood residents enjoy the Seven Oaks Community Club and the support of great neighbors! Buyers can be younger than 55 years of age. Many people are securing their retirement home at today’s low prices and leasing them out to people that meet the age requirement. The fees are low, there is no Mello Roos and these homes can be updated easily and with minimum expense. I already have 2 offers so this one will not last. Open today 1-4!

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!

“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!”

I always enjoy hearing from my clients how I helped them in their home search and relocation to the San Diego Area. My successful San Diego relocation process ensures my clients find a great home in a community that fits their own lifestyle and needs. I start out with taking a full assessment of my client’s lifestyle. We discuss everything from hobbies, entertaining, lifestyle, new job, current and future home style needs.
I help them explore the new opportunities the San Diego’s climate offers. This may be the new idea of having more outdoor living spaces. 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. I take in to account the location of their future employer, their school needs and their housing desires and budget. I enjoy matching my client’s needs to the homes available in the community.
Let me be your guide. As a resident of the San Diego area for over 27 years and raising my sons in North Poway I have a full understanding of what this beautiful city has to offer new residents. Working together I can introduce you to your new neighborhood and the amenities that meet your family needs.
