Have you ever driven through a community and felt like you belonged there? That’s what happened to me 12 years ago when I first drove through Eastlake. Eastlake, in the Eastern portion of Chula Vista, has been one of the most popular neighborhoodsfor new home purchases in San Diego County for the past 15 years (as voted by readers of the San Diego Union-Tribune)…especially for families with kids!Eastlake has everything you could ask for in a community.
Being a Chula Vista (Eastlake) Realtor is a 24-hour a day, 7 day a week job. But it's not just a job for me…it's my career and what I love to do. There is no better feeling than helping a buyer find their dream house in a neighborhood they love or a seller selling their home for top dollar.
I know what it takes to be a great Realtor. I work as hard as I can for each client I have. When I am with a client, that client is the focus of my attention. I do not take incoming calls or text other clients--100% of my attention is on the task at hand with the clients I am with.
There are several things I do for my buyers that make me one of the top agents in Chula Vista. Firstly, I answer my phone 7 days a week. If I am with aclient I will let the call go to voice mail, but after I’m finished with my appt. I will return all of my calls right away. I know this seems simple, but you would be amazed at how many Realtors never call their clients or potential clients back. Most real estate agents don't even answer their phone. How can a Realtor provide great customer service if they can’t be reached?
Secondly, buying or selling a house can be a long process. I dedicate as much time as it takes to help my clients find a home or sell their house. I do notstop until the job is done. Whether it takes 60 days or 6 months for escrow to close, I put the time in to make sure the transaction goes as smoothly and stress-free as it can for my clients. I want them to be completely satisfied with the transaction and recommend me to friends and family and hopefully use my services again!
In order to truly help a buyer or seller it is necessary to know the community or city you're working in. One of thearea's I specialize in is, you guessed, Chula Vista and Eastlake (which is a subdivision/community of Chula Vista). Chula Vista is the 2nd largest city in San Diego County and is located about 15 miles south of Downtown San Diego. Chula Vista has 5 zip codes—91910, 91911, 91913, 91914 and 91915.
The zip code 91910 is located west of the 805 Freeway. (A small portion of 91910 does stretch east of the 805 and includes communities such as Rancho Del Rey.) Most homes in 91910 were built in the 1950's and 1960's. The average sales price for the past six months for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 1800 sq. ft. detached single-family house was $522,000. The average sales price for the past six months for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1200 sq. ft.condo was $320,000.
Zip code 91911 is located in the southwest area of Chula Vista and iswhere you will find the least expensive homes in this area. The average sales price over the past six months for a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1600 sq. ft. detached single-family house was $322,000. The average sales price for a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1200 sq. ft. condo over the past six months was $312,000.
91913 is the main zip code for Otay Ranch. It is located just south of Telegraph Canyon Road and Otay Lakes Road. The average sales price over the past six months for a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, 2100 sq. ft. detached single family house was $387,000.The average sales price for a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 1300 sq. ft. condo over the past six months was $225,000.
91914 is home to Rolling Hill Ranch and San Miguel Ranch (as well as a portion of Eastlake Woods). One of the main attractions of Rolling Hills Ranch is that it is a portion of the community where there is no Mello-Roos. Because the east side of Chula Vista is relatively new, most of the area's have Home Owners Association fees and Mello-Roos, which can last 15-25 years and can range from $100 to $500 a month. The price range for homes in 91914 is from $250,000 to a few million dollars. The average sales price over the past six months for a 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 3100 sq. ft. detached single-family house was $569,000. The average sales price for a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 1350 sq. ft. condo over the past six months was $221,900.
The 91915 zip code is one of my favorite zip codes in all of Chula Vista. It includes Eastlake Trails, Eastlake Green, Eastlake Vistas and parts of Otay Ranch. Homes in Eastlake Trails and Eastlake Greens range in price from $244,000 to $764,000. The average sales price over the past six months for a 4 bedroom, 4 bath, 3100 sq. ft.detached single-family house was $569,000.The average sales price for a 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 1300 sq. ft. condo over the past six months was $225,000.
No matter where you are looking for or buying a house, Chula Vista, Eastlake, Bonita, Mission Valley or Coronado--the most important thing you can do as a buyer or seller is choosing the right Real Estate Agent!
