Real Estate Agent - eXp Realty of California, Inc. - CA DRE #01490977
The Southern California Relocation Dude, originally from Boston (I relocated here in 2005), shares what he knows about Carlsbad and other North San Diego County communities. Whether you are interested in specific Carlsbad neighborhoods (or other communities), things to do (e.g., shopping, touristy stuff, recreation, dining), or local housing market conditions, you'll find it here. Search for Carlsbad homes for sale (and other nearby coastal areas, too), learn about new neighborhoods, and get the scoop on what YOU should know about buying and selling a home in Carlsbad or nearby. Let's talk about how I can help you in your journey! And if you are planning a relocation to or from my area in Greater San Diego, you'll find lots of tips about relocation, whether you are buying or selling. And if you have friends or family elsewhere in the country I can help them, too, by finding the right Realtor in my vast network of highly qualified Realtors. Just let me know that I can assist them in finding the right Realtor to help buy and/or sell a home. You can either pass along my information, or share theirs with me and I will do the rest.
