Sellers Story ... Why We Love 3015 Mission Village Dr

After my wife and I got married in 2014, we were eager to get a nice home in a safe area to call our own. A home is a great investment but we also wanted a place where we could start a family. With a dog already on-board, something with a yard was a must. As a law enforcement family, we were acutely aware of what parts of town interested us the most. Fortunately, 3015 Mission Village hit the market at the perfect time. Serra Mesa was at the top of our list for neighborhoods. It’s centrally located within San Diego, being approximately 15 minutes from downtown, beaches, and any other area you might want to visit. 3015 Mission Village was modestly priced, had room for renovations which we enjoyed doing, and was expertly designed making the most of the modest footprint. Even the dog was happy, having a great backyard with a large covered patio and mountain view over the fence to the east.

Once we moved in, we got straight to the renovations. We immediately installed new custom noise-cancelling windows, blinds, and a fence. The busy street that is Mission Village practically disappeared overnight into a calm and peacefully living space. We completely remodeled the backyard landscape, including the addition of a sprinkler system, to give us a zen-like area we now call our “California Room”. We remodeled the kitchen, painted the entire house (inside and out), and replaced all the outlets, light switches, and light fixtures. The house started to become our own. In the Spring of 2016, we added a state-of-the-art HVAC heating and cooling system that specializes in energy efficiency. Our energy bills are now, consistently, among the lowest in the neighborhood. These changes to the home made our biggest addition a much easier one to handle. My wife and I welcomed our daughter into the world on May 18th. Through our renovations, we made a beautiful home to raise her in with few things to worry about. We even added new appliances such as a washer, dryer, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and water heater to make things just a touch easier and more efficient.
Due to work relocation, we sadly must leave the home we made our own to take our daughter and dog to the Midwest. This home has been great to our family and I truly hope someone comes along who will treat it, and our great neighbors, with the same care and dignity that we showed it. 3015 Mission Village will always hold a special place in our hearts as the place where our family started and we’ll never forget that.

1110 Loma Ave, Coronado - Home for the Holidays

December has always been an exciting month for our family on Loma Ave. Our family connection to Jingle Bells (Mom being the great granddaughter of James Lord Pierpont, author of Jingle Bells) always generates that little extra spark of excitement and magic for us around the holiday season. 

Mom would certainly never boast about our family connection to Jingle Bells, but her joyous and infectious smile, and her yearly, Jingle Bells themed holiday decorations hinted she's at least a little proud of her place in the family tree. 

Each December, jingle bells hang on the front door, announcing the arrival and departure of all visitors with a happy jangle. We even had a door chime that played Jingle Bells until the well used winding mechanism finally expired.

Coronado and San Diego Offer Holiday Frolic

The City of Coronado kicks off the holiday spirit boost in early December, dressing each and every Orange Avenue pine tree in a coat of colorful lights. Follow Orange Avenue along this sparkling, seasonal path and walk or bike to The Old Ferry Landing to enjoy the festive city skyline, often doubled in reflection on the glassy waters of San Diego Bay.  On the way, be sure to stop by Cafe 1134 or Starbucks to pick up your favorite holiday hot toddy. 

Within days of the tree lighting tradition, pedestrians take charge of a Orange Avenue to stroll amongst holiday parade goers and in to quaint and cozy shops during merchant's open house.  Young and old are thrilled to see Santa arrive by fire engine to oversee lighting of the "big tree", the tallest holiday tree you'll likely ever see! 

These are just a few examples of holiday activities our family has had the good fortune to enjoy while living on Loma Avenue.  A multitude of musical, theatrical and artistic events await you, just outside your front door. This small but strong community has provided cross-cultural experiences to expand our minds, excite our imaginations and grow our hearts. 

We love this home and our wish is to
partner with a special buyer who appreciates this opportunity to own a beautiful, master-crafted house in an absolutely ideal beachside location.  We hope you love this home too, so bring your aesthetic vision, your sense of adventure and your good walking shoes. Stroll the neighborhood, take a walk on the beach of this seaside town we call "our little slice of heaven".  It's your turn to build your own precious traditions and enduring memories within these walls.

Another Successful Story

Jared met Tim about 8 years ago. Jared was a single guy looking for a starter home. An extensive search yielded the perfect place for Jared.  After a few years, Jared met his wife and … as the story goes, started their family.  They quickly discovered they needed more space, more bedrooms, more bathrooms, and a yard.  It was time to move to a larger home. So, he listed his home with Tim.  With an aggressive marketing strategy, Tim sold it within 2 weeks. Then, the search for their new home began.  Tim found their perfect home with all the items on their checklist – checked.  Even had a few bonuses – their favorite was the location - directly across the street from a park.  A place where the kids and their friends can run and play!  Here is what Jared has to say…

“Tim has helped me purchase two homes and sell another. He is honest, caring, knowledgeable, experienced, flexible, and loyal. He puts your interests first and always looks out for you. I would recommend him to my family and closest friends if they were purchasing a home. He is without a doubt a stand up man and an amazing realtor!”

Thank YOU Jared.
