We purchased a home in Lakeshore Gardens in December of 2006. We moved here to provide for our daughter, Erica Davis, a home near to her recovery resources and for her sports.
We have been involved in Real Estate in California since 1975 when we purchased and subdivided 55 acres of land near Red Bluff California. We currently own two Real Estate offices, one in Lodi California and the other here in Lakeshore Gardens – Carlsbad California.
Steve is a Corporate Real Estate officer and a California Department of Real Estate licensed Broker. Carol is a state licensed real estate agent. Both of us are REALTORs.
We are members of the National Association of Realtors, the California Association of Realtors, and the North San Diego County Association of Realtors. We are always making ourselves available for continuing education to further advance our skills in serving our buyers and sellers.
Experience and Background
Carol and Steve began their Real Estate career in Northern California – Red Bluff in Tehama County. Our first purchase was 55 acres of rolling, oak covered hills west of town. We subdivided the land into 4 parcels, selling three and building a 31 X 80 foot house on the remaining parcel. Three more subdivisions in the area and two children later we moved to Pleasant Hill in Conta Costa county near the East Bay.
There we purchased the oldest house in the county – built in 1867. While remodeling the home we found square nails. It had a view of Mount Diablo and the surrounding valley. Our third child was born in Concord.
We then moved to Lodi in San Joaquin county to be near both of our parents. We purchased several homes and opened a Realty World office and hired over 10 Realtors to work with us. We personally bought and sold many homes and developed a Real Estate Investment Club for landlords.
December 31, 2005 our daughter Erica was paralyzed in Lodi and spent almost 2 months in 2006 in hospitals and 10 months in physical therapy. After 3 one week trips to Carlsbad for specific Spinal Cord therapy we decided to move to Carlsbad and have loved living near the beach in a very comfortable climate! Erica has thrived in the San Diego area – participating in over 18 different sports, climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa, ocean jet ski racing, and now wheelchair dancing. See her profile at http://www.HelpEricaWalk.com Also see the trailer to Erica’s climb at http://ThroughTheRoofMovie.com
Of all the places in the United States we believe that the San Diego county coastal areas are the most wonderful places to live. Although we sell throughout the county we specialize in the coastal areas of Carlsbad, Leucadia, and Encinatis.
How We Serve You
Finding your dream home or selling your home has become a legal challenge. As a buyer you want to know everything about the property you are purchasing. As a seller you want the buyer to make an informed decision with all the available disclosures and reports necessary.
Carol is a tremendous Realtor who specializes in helping buyers find the right home for their lifestyle and budget. Carol has a phenomenal grasp of the homes that are available and the features of each home. Carol will show you as many homes as you need to view to make a comfortable decision. With Carol’s skill in showing homes, your search will become very refined so that you do not make a career out of looking at homes for sale!
Steve handles the writing of the offer, the negotiations, and collecting and reviewing with you all the disclosures and reports that are necessary and important for your home buying decision. Steve has the skill and knowledge from years of experience as both a Realtor and Financial Planner to make sure that you know what you are buying.
As a Seller you want Steve on your side to make sure that every disclosure, report, and inspection is being done and made available for your buyer. 98% of all lawsuits in Real Estate are from dissatisfied buyers – people who did not have all the facts they needed to make an intelligent decision in their purchase. Steve makes sure that the people who buy your home are fully aware of all the facts about your home.
Marketing your home For Sale is also Steve’s responsibility. From posting your home For Sale on many websites, to your home’s own website, to quality flyers at your home for drive-by home hunters to take with them – we do it right. Over 80% of buyers look to the internet first – and we do a complete write up so that the buyer and the agents can get a total picture of your home and all the features.
Our fees are the same as most Realtors but our service is unsurpassed!
