My Setting Yourself Apart - A Niche Contest Entry  hosted by Evelyn Johnston    Riches in The NichesSince moving to San Diego, CA I was able to reinvent my business and actually specialize in 3 very distinct groups.         UCSD Campus in La Jolla, CA 1. Parents of Students at UCSD, USD and SDSUI help them pay for their kids tuition by selling them buy & hold rental properties to house their 2nd and 3rd year student children so they can live off campus and put the $1,300+ monthly dorm fees (UCSD) towards equity and have their kids friends pay down the mortgage for them!I sell at least 3 of these per year. I discovered this niche, because I live at the East-end of the UCSD campus and started selling these by default of where I live. I also know where students prefer to live so they are ...

 I love having Sundays off, as one of my favorite things to do is go day hiking. I don't always go to locally famous trails or big picturesque locations; in fact some times I just head out my front door and see where my "urban trails" lead me. Today, they lead me to the UCSD Challenge Course.  I never knew about his trail and "boot camp" style course, but I'd always caught a glimpse of it from my campus hikes. Today I decide to venture off the path and onto the trail and wow, look what I discovered, all while never leaving UCSD's expansive campus! From these unassuming stairs, you end end up here...

My title says La Jolla, CA but in fact all of San Diego County feels that way; the supporters do.I drive by this memorial almost daily, it peeks at me from it's perch, high above Highway 5 ... In La Jolla, CA there stands a cross, a memorial to our military atop Mount Soledad with views like none other in San Diego County. You can see Downtown and beyond to Mexico to the South, Carlsbad to The North, all of the big blue Pacific and La Jolla to the West and we can pratically see Arizona to the East!                              Downtown San Diego & Tijuana Hills                Scripps Pier, La Jolla through Carlsbad, CA The memorial while seems to predominantly, but not exclusively, pay tribute to our WWII veterans; it actually pays tribute to all our American soldiers from the Revolutio...

In order to be a real estate brand, you have to understand what a brand is, what it means to the public and especially your clientele. When I think of the brands I trust, my go to choices - so to speak, I've learned a lot about creating my own brand through reflection upon why I palce so much value & trust in those I choose to align myself and my business with. Three of non-Real Estate brands I trust and admire are: Virgin America and the entire Virgin brand represents quality, cutting edge services and products. Richard Branson is a brand genius; he actively creates his brand as a walking, talking stunt pulling marketing machine. His #1 strategy; creating Wow! Every day, he expects his employees to create it for Virgin customers and re-invent it often to attract future Virgin customers...

Location?   72 Blue Heron Way  This charming blue cottage with beautiful yard and brick pathway has amazing views of UTC/La Jolla.You won't be able to find it on a map, GPS or Google Maps, but you may find it on a UCSD Campus Map!You see, this little cottage enjoys such spectacular views because it's (appropriately) perched 7 stories high on the roof of the UCSD Engineering Building! The Fallen Star @UCSDThe story goes, that the artist, Do Ho Suh, an emigrant from Seoul, Korea crerated this piece out of his own sense of displacement from his home in South Korea, after immigrating over to the United States.This is one of 18 commissioned and permanent sculptures than can be seen on the UCSD campusand is...

Ini Mini Miny Mo: How To Hire A Realtor ® in San Diego, CAWe are not all the same. We have varied skills, training and experience and personalities need to match-chemistry needs to be there.You Realtor can end up being a great relationship in your life, like the family doctor; you may not always need us, but isn't nice to know that we're there when you do? And we know you and how best to serve you too!First and foremost, this advice may possibly work in other parts of CA and the US & Canada too! I also emphasize hiring a Realtor®. There are as many sales agents and licensee's that do not belong to the National Association of Realtors®, as do belong to NAR; only a member can be called a Realtor®. To me it matters because of the Realtor Code Of Ethics; they represent that I plan to be com...
