Viewing Christmas Lights, a Family Tradition in San Diego County

One of our family’s favorite festivities during the holiday season is to bundle up, hop in the car and take a drive to enjoy the Christmas lights in the neighborhood.  Of course, it usually is not snowing , and it does not require much bundling up to keep warm.  These days it pays to have a plan rather than just driving around so here is a great list of Christmas Light put together each year by San Diego Family Magazine.  The list is organized by each area of the county, ex: North County, East County etc. and then broken down by city, ex: San Marcos, El Cajon etc.  To plan your Christmas Light outing click here to view the list.

See you in the neighborhood,

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,
