Just around the corner from our home lies the community of Lake San Marcos. Only laying claim to slightly over 1.8 square miles, Lake San Marcos consist of a high number of high density multi-family structures in the form of condos, townhomes and villas. Predominantly single family homes enjoy the lakeside placement, whereas the condos are landside. Many are placed along the shores of Lake San Marcos, which is a .1 square mile irregularly shaped man-made lake. Recently, a new condo complex of Seaglass is under construction and is nearly completed by D.R. Horton with condos starting in the low $300s and peaking at over $400, 000. On our last visit there, nearly all the homes were under contract, however, if you are interested, let us know and we would be pleased to represent you and che...

For people who are into golf and other sports, Lake San Marcos in the city of San Marcos, California is a great option. It takes pride in its public executive golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools and even paddle tennis courts. Lake San Marcos is a community that has a wide variety of housing opportunities (1273 condominiums and 915 single family homes), and the community is surrounded by a 40-acre man-made lake. First purchased by the Clemson and Wells families way back in 1927, Lake San Marcos and was slowly developed starting in 1946 until it has become what it is today. The Frazar Brothers, who purchased the area in the 1960s, were the ones who have greatly contributed to the improvement of the entire land. In fact, it was their idea to restructure the property by reshaping th...

Chris O, a fellow Linkedin group member, challenged us to give advice for a newbie business owner.  Okay, so I took the challenge.  Off the top of my head, here's the 3 most important tips that have been successful for me.  Every new entrepreneur can listen & learn: 1) You must have a good contact database and FOLLOW UP consistently. As a business owner, your #1 job is to develop and build key business relationships. 2) You must use a calendaring system and be very organized about updating it every day. Sync it with your cell phone & set up automatic alerts to pop up. I schedule business meetings & events every day (refer to #1 above), and live and die by my calendar. 3) Remember that everything is negotiable. Never accept the first offer that's presented to you. And don't be afraid to ...

Lake San Marcos, California was created by a developer/builder back in 1962 --- the builders name Gordon Frazar,  his vision was to do one last project before that would be his swan song. His aim was to get 'em talking. So his decided to build a community around a pond down the street from a county garbage dump. He had a ton on skeptic's from the builders in San Diego to those up in Los Angeles. Lake San Marcos was the first master planned lakeside community in the United States back in the early sixty's. It was one of the first to market condominiums. It was the first in Southern California if not the country to install underground utilities and cable television lines for its residents. Coming up on July 5, 2012 Lake San Marcos, will celebrate its golden anniversary. The center piece o...
