More About Me


Between us we have been licensed over 20+ years

Katy has experience as a mortgage loan officer, so she knows what to look for whether our client is the buyer or the seller.

Katy has been a San Diego County Resident for more than 40 years, and is familiar with all of San Diego County. This is helpful to clients in deciding whether a neighborhood is right for them to buy in, or how to market the best aspects of their neighborhood in order to sell.

John lived in Orange County for most of his life but has been in San Diego County for 10 years. He has many friends in Los Angeles and Orange County who are moving to San Diego. This gives us a whole new group of clients to market our San Diego listings to. If we have a client moving to Orange County we are confident that we can help our clients find the right neighborhood there as well.

Volunteering and giving back has always been important to us. Katy has been a member of the Board of Directors for the EGCA; a Scholarship Committee Member for the AGC and EGCA; and served on the Carlsbad Youth Baseball Board of Directors. Over the years many youth have benefitted from our services with scholarships and sports equipment. Especially nice was at EGCA we gave 4 year college scholarships.

John has been a member of SOS; SIMA; and the Surfrider Foundation. Together we have been members of the California Surf Museum and support the local museums and many ocean related activities and groups. We also both love food and so know and support all of the great local restaurants.

Katy’s children grew up here in North San Diego County and were active in a variety of youth sports and continue to be active in sports today. Golf? Pickelball? Waterpolo? Soccer? Baseball? We can point you in the right direction for kids or adults.

John’s children grew up in Orange County and were active in the performing arts and children’s groups. Looking for a museum to visit or take the kids to? We have that information too!

We both love California and all it has to offer from the beach to our beautiful mountains and deserts. John has traveled the world extensively and brings a fresh open perspective to all that we do.

We love people and houses and consider the process for buyers much like match making, even with our investor clients. Katy enjoys negotiation and contract management. This combined with good communication and persistence delivers a smooth transaction for all of our clients.
