What is being a Realtor all about?  I was thinking about that today after having the pleasure of handing my buyer the keys to his new home.

So many plans for the future, and they all fit neatly into this beautiful home.  A warm, almost glowing kitchen where many dinners will be prepared and shared with friends and family.  A fireplace where comfort with a great book can be found on a chilly winter evening.   An office, so you can catch up on work without a commute to the office.  A studio, where you can explore the artist in you, whether it be the painter, the musician or the writer.

Outside, a park-like yard, perhaps the scene of  a future picnic table full of covered dishes and burgers from the BBQ and a crowd to enjoy them.  Maybe a tree swing, the kind that children always remember and smile.

The garage, where projects start and sometimes finish, precious relics of life are stored in cardboard boxes, and sometimes even where a car or two reside.

How many people can say their job is to help people make their dreams come true?  This is what being a Realtor is all about for me.

See you in the neighborhood,

Have You Visited Queen Califia’s Magic Circle Garden?

One thing I find surprising is that many people do not know about the great things about living in Escondido, so today I am going to talk about one of my personal favorites.  Tucked away in Kit Carson Park is Queen Califia’s Magical Circle Garden by the acclaimed artist NIKI DE SAINT PHALLE’S.   It is just one piece of Escondido’s considerable Public Art Program which makes it a special place to live or visit.

You will find this magical, joyful place in the park, just behind the 17th hole of the Frisbee Golf course.  Imagine fanciful colors, and mirrors all working together to create a maze of imaginative creatures.  There is also a treasure waiting to be discovered at the heart of the maze. So I will say no more least I spoil the surprise of discovery for you.  This is such a fanciful place no one can leave here without a song in their heart and a smile on their face.

The park also offers beautifully shaded picnic tables, play ground areas for the younger  kids, and as noted before an awesome Frisbee golf course for the big kids.  It is a great place to spend a lazy Southern California day.  It’s  location is 3333 Bear Valley Pkwy, Escondido, CA 92025.

The thing that got me thinking about this was the fact that I just listed a beautiful home in Escondido.  If you are here to enjoy the Kit Carson Park and decide that Escondido looks like a great place to live you should give me a call.   I can help you with that.

See you in the neighborhood,
