We all have people in this world who we admire and look up to.  In my case, I want to applaud the successful and talented Gerri-Lynn Fives.

 

Over the weekend, this admirable woman was recognized for her hard work and successful business as a realtor.  Gerri-Lynn has won Realtor of the Year, given by the San Diego Association of Realtors (aka SDAR).  She should be damn proud, just as I am.  


These sorts of award should not be taken lightly (not that anyone is) but I want to be sure that everyone knows the greatness of this woman.  It is clear that Gerri-Lynn has put her stamp on the city of San Diego and has her award to prove it.  You go girl! And Congratulations! :)

Coronado dunes are special because they spell out Coronado.  But that’s not the only reason why the dunes are rare.  They have several functions.

 

The beach dunes can be great for a challenging jog.  I would go barefoot unless you have multiple pairs of running shoes - one in which you can designate for running on the beach.  Because I don’t know about you but having sand in my shoes drives me mad.  Work out those calves and shape those strong legs all while obtaining a natural tan.  

 

OR, if you are like me, and love the feeling of being solo, then use the dunes for that sole purpose.  Going to the beach is great in itself but the feeling that you’re on a deserted island can be even better.  Uh, yes, a deserted island that...

Coronado is home to the United States Navy Seals - and also their training camp.  Every three months a new group begins the intense, exhausting, exhilirating training course.  The toughest of men endure this epic challenge...and I don’t mean actual strength. The biggest challenge is having the mental capacity (aka courage) to survive the course.  You must be in a focused and strong mindset in order to accomplish this feat.

 

Day in and day out, the trainees are pushed to the limit, some tasks include: obstacle courses, skydiving and swimming.  Sure, that seems pretty straight forward and manageable.  No, wrong! They aren’t your typical swim courses or jogs along the beach.  The young Seal pups [in training] are expected to jump from helicopters...

The San Diego airport is known as Lindbergh Field and is located just across the bay from Coronado.  The close proximity of the airport gives easy access between Lindbergh Field and Coronado. And also allows you to watch the planes fly over downtown as they float in for landing.  

 

Lindbergh Field is named after the late Charles Lindbergh.  He is known for flying the “Spirit of St. Louis” and being the first person to ever fly from New York to Paris.  This historical event happened in the year 1927.  But before he ever made his transcontinental flight, it all started here in San Diego.  

 

Charles Lindbergh’s aviation career was born in 1927 when he became a U.S. air mail pilot. Years later, he and his family located to San Diego where...

Located at the north west end of Coronado lies Sunset Park.  It is one of the busiest parks in the Crown City - constantly filled with athletes, picnickers and children running around.  The playground is tucked away in the corner of the park, bringing distance and protection from a stray ball or frisbee.

 

Sunset Park is heaven on earth if you want to spend the whole day outside.  The beach is right across the street as well as Dog Beach.  There are bathrooms, drinking fountains and there is plenty of space to make your own playing field.  You can pretty much participate in any sort of outdoor sport except for one: flying kites. Visit Sunset park and you'll understand why.    


Spend all day at the park taking breaks for dips in the ocean. After the...

For a day of sporty leisure, head on over to Coronado.  Whether you arrive by car or ferry, you can easily rent bikes from one of the several rental shops on the island - Holland's Bicycles, Bikes & Beyond or Wheel Fun Rentals.

 

If your arrival point is the Ferry Landing, you can start your circumnavigation here.  Grab rentals from Bikes & Beyond and head out.  If your navigation starts in the southern direction, you will find yourself riding along a path, right next to the bay.  As you cruise on, downtown San Diego sparkles across the bay and sailboats float on by.  The path will bring you by Tidelands Park and heads under the bridge.  As you ride under the massive structure, the Coronado Golf Course pops up just on the other side.  Continuing...

Driving over the Coronado bridge will give you a 360 view of San Diego and a spectacular lookout point at sunset. But that only lasts a few seconds. Plus, it is challenging to drive and look at the scenery at the same time. So instead, plan ahead and get to Coronado early enough to see the sun descend. Winter is the best time to watch a sunset from the Crown City because it sets over the water.

 

The Crown City has several locations to offer for sunset gazers.  If you feel like treating yourself to a fancy somewhat pricey drink then head over to The Hotel Del Coronado.  Not to worry, they have beer too.  The Del has a huge deck built right on the edge of the beach - the patio includes comfy couches and fire pits.  It's no doubt a luxurious way to watch the sun set.

Electronic Marketing a Benefit to Buyers and Sellers for Coronado Real Estate

 
CORONADO, CALIFORNIA: June 6, 2012 - “The value that Internet marketing provides for our clients can’t be understated,” noted Gerri-Lynn Fives, when asked to explain how she came to represent the buyer of 28 Admiralty Cross twice in the past four years. Fives is a broker associate with Prudential’s Coronado office who maintains a number of informative websites aimed at targeting potential buyers of Coronado real estate.
 
In both instances the buyers of 28 Admiralty Cross, a unique waterfront home with a spacious private dock, originated from the Internet. “Finding the right buyer for such a distinctive property is never easy,” says Fives, “but I’m...

Coronado Beach Number One Beach 2012 | Coronado Real Estate | Gerri-Lynn Fives

 
Coronado Beach in San Diego tops this year's list of best beaches, compiled annually by "Dr. Beach" Stephen Leatherman.

 

According to Stephen Leatherman, aka “Dr. Beach,” there are approximately 650 major public recreational beaches in the United States. Only one, though, can be No. 1. What strand of sand earns that designation? This year, the honor goes to Coronado Beach near San Diego, which tops Leatherman’s 2012 annual list of the Top 10 Beaches in the country. Released on Friday, the full list includes:

  1. Coronado Beach, Coronado, Calif.
  2. Kahanamoku Beach, Oahu, Hawaii
  3. Main Beach, East Hampton, N.Y.
  4. St. George Island State Park, St. George Island, Fla.
  5. Hamoa Beach, Maui, Hawaii
  6. Coast Guard Beach, Eastham, Mass.

At a recent Women’s Council of REALTORS® luncheon I attended, Leslie Appleton Young, Chief Economist for the California Association of REALTORS®, reported that according to Pew Research Center’s “Home Sweet Home. Still. Five Years After the Bubble Burst” 8 in 10 Americans agree buying a home is the best long-term investment a person can make. Rent or Buy is the question of the day.  “…renters are hardly immune to the allure of homeownership, even in the face of the five-year decline in prices.  Asked if they rent out of choice or because they cannot afford to buy a home, just 24 % say they rent out of choice.  According to Pew Research Center, “17% of the current renters would like to continue to rent and 81% would buy a house at some point.”

According to CAR’s Chief Economist,...
