San Diego Home Info by Gretchen Pagnotta
E.W. Scripps and his mentor, his beloved half-sister, Ellen Browning Scripps, came to California in 1890 and purchased 400 acres of what is today Scripps Ranch for $5,000.
Further developed in 1976, Scripps Ranch is an oasis among the desert-like sagebrush. Home styles are diverse and range from adult living on Miramar Reservoir/Lake to large single-family homes set around green belts and parks.
Scripps Ranch’s residents enjoy spending their time at the Scripps Ranch Library located across from the Miramar Reservoir/Lake; taking advantage of the 4 mile in and out loop around the lake for rollerblading, walking, running or cycling plus utilizing the boat launch for those that wish to paddle around the lake water to admire the surrounding hillside landscape and ducks.
Scripps Ranch is cherished and acclaimed for its family lifestyle, strong sense of community and awesome civic pride.
Scripps Ranch is located east of Interstate 15, North of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, and South of Poway, CA., about 25 min. north of downtown San Diego.

“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!”
Pete & Kally D.
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. My personal knowledge and successful real estate background is a perfect match for families relocating to the San Diego North County area. If you are looking for a home in the Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Scripps Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, 4S Ranch, Carmel Valley, Del Sur, Santaluz communities let me share with you my personal inside knowledge of these fantastic communities. We can explore both the new construction and the resale homes. I look forward to working with you. You can contact me at [email protected] or give me a call at (619) 846-3114.
Thinking of Selling Your San Diego Home?
If you are considering selling your San Diego home this spring we have some incentives for you. To get the most money and the fastest market time your property needs to be clean, the yard maintained and your home staged for sales success! We have a great team that can help you. Once they are done we will do the rest with our Global Marketing Internet Marketing Program and all our professional gallery photography!
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!
We are Top San Diego agents and would be happy to provide you with a current opinion of value on your home or condo. We work in the coastal and inland communities of Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Santaluz, Del Sur, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Vista, San Marcos, Carlsbad and Scripps Ranch.
Refinance Your Home
I just refinanced my home which I purchased last September. It was beneficial for me to grab a lower interest rate which will pay for itself immediately since there were so few fees involved. Interest rates are at a record low so if you have been considering a purchase or a refinance now is the time to contact a reliable lender and see if you and your home qualifies. It saved me $250 a month in payment..that is a considerable amount that can go into my retirement savings. For people saving for college for their children that is $3000 a year which puts a small dent into the total cost. Boy, glad those days are behind me.
Huge Values in Luxury Home Market in North San Diego
The values in the home market especially in luxury homes are at such attractive levels if you ever thought of “moving up” top a luxury home now is the time. Luxury homes are selling below replacement costs and the selection is incredible! Seasonally this is also approaching the very best time for a buyer to purchase. The market slows down in the fall months with people busy with back to school activities, the holidays and just not in the “I want to buy a home mood.” The homes that have been on the market all summer will have price reductions as sellers become disenchanted with showings and lack of offers. What a great time to negotiate for a home!
Lowest Interest Rates Since 1970!
According to a recent Wall Street Journal Article the interest rates for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages are in free fall, averaging just 4.44% on Aug. 12, according to Freddie Mac. Not only was that down from 5.07% in January, it was the lowest since Freddie began keeping records in 1970. So what are you waiting for? For the rest of the article go to: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703723504575425734198113348.html?mod=WSJ_RealEstate_LeftTopNews.
San Diego First Time Buyers Have Great Opportunities
Although the credits for first time home buyers are not available the drop in prices can more than make up for any credits. Sellers are willing to help with closing costs and again the values are no longer at the very bottom but are still very attractive. San Diego is a very desirable city to call home and we will see a recovery. You will be glad you jumped in and did not ignore an opportunity.
Where the Best Home Values are in San Diego
Where are some of the great values…??? Luxury homes in Santaluz, Rancho Santa Fe,Del Mar and Encinitas…are at unbelievable prices. There are homes that have been built to accommodate large families with actually living quarters for 2 families. This is ideal for working couples who want live in Mom and dad help or for people who have extended visits from family members. You can get acerage, pools, tennis courts, work shops, horse property, views, golf, gated…you can have it all at truely unbelievable prices.

The prices of downtown condos are very enticing…remember the lines a few years ago?
