  • Adams Ave Unplugged 2015

    Apr 20, 15 • CarMama • Neighborhood Information1 CommentRead More »

    For those of you who are live music lovers, I’ve got the perfect weekend activity for you! According the the Adams Ave Businesses website, “Adams Avenue Unplugged takes place the weekend of April 25 and 26, along a two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue, from University Heights on the West through Normal Heights, and into parts of Kensington to the East. The event will feature 150 live musical performances staged inside restaurants, bars, coffee houses and galleries lining the neighborhood and on four community stages evenly spread out throughout the district. Being able to pair the Avenue’s unique dining and drinking establishments, each with their own special ambiances and selections, with free musical performances, makes Adams Avenue the place to be on the last weekend of April. The AABA hopes to treat musical aficionados and foodies to the rich neighborhood culture. Music is scheduled from 12pm to 10pm on Saturday, April 25, and 12pm to 7pm on Sunday, April 26. Some artists will be playing multiple sets allowing attendees more opportunity to catch their favorite performers. Adams Avenue Unplugged is free and open to the general public. The free trolley service will be provided on Adams Avenue during the festival to subsidize the walking required to traverse the expansive event footprint. Parking is limited to residential neighborhood streets and can get quite congested. MTS bus routes 2 & 11 will service

  • Urban Renaissance in Downtown San Diego

    Mar 24, 15 • CarMama • Home Buyers, Neighborhood InformationNo CommentsRead More »

    If you’ve been in downtown San Diego in the past few months, you may have noticed a lot of construction projects underway. Downtown boosters are calling it an urban renaissance.  I’ve recently discovered the coffee shop/restaurant Halcyon and Stella Public House. If you can look past the construction next door – and see into the future when it will be a new city park, you get to enjoy outdoor dining in an area that is on the come up; but not quite there yet. But trust me…it will be. The Pinnacle Project includes a mixed use apartment building with approximately 950 apartments, commercial space, and the new city park. KPBS did a great story about this: https://youtu.be/dmKhzY7Pbjo Of course, while some benefit from this revitalization, others do not. There is a homeless population that continuously gets pushed out of areas, and current residents who are paying a premium to live in a area with additional services such as extra trash pick up. As the debate continues on how far to go with the changes downtown, I can think of a couple clients of mine that bought condos downtown and are embracing the improvements. Other neighborhoods, just east of downtown, like Sherman Heights, could also start to feel the benefits of downtown’s improvements. Having fun places to go just a walk away improves the lives of many residents just up the hill

  • Spring Walkabout in South Park This Saturday

    Mar 16, 15 • CarMama • Neighborhood InformationNo CommentsRead More »

    It’s that time of year again! The annual Spring Walkabout is this weekend. Saturday, March 21st, from 6pm-10pm. The neighborhood of South Park has been doing quarterly “walkabouts” for a couple of years now and it’s really grown into something special. What started out as a few local businesses keeping their doors open later than usual has morphed into an all-out affair. Free transportation via trolleys take you around the hood so you can wear those cute shoes you’ve been meaning to show off without killing your feet! The trolley arrives every 15 minutes at the following stops: Stop 1  30th & Juniper St. Stop 2   West side of 30th between Hawthorne & Grape St. Stop 3  Beech & Dale St. Stop 4  Grape Square (Grape & Fern St.) Be sure to check out South Park’s newest spot, the South Park Brewing Company. Amazing fish tacos and great beer makes this new spot a must. Check out my previous blog post about by clicking here. And remember, you can alway contact me for your South Park real estate needs!

Every day she wondered if she was going to be able to put this plan to action, and wanted to start by becoming a homeowner. One day, she decided to reach out to someone who could help, which landed Kyrsty in a Free HomeBuyer Class w/ David Hughson to come up with the plan.  Because of that, she determined that it was possible and quickly scheduled a "Huddle Up" with Jesse Ibanez to discover what the optimal home would look like, and why.  She knew it would be tough, but among other things she wanted to get a detached home in an up-and-coming neighborhood. Because of that, she got pre-approved w/ Dave and we got the show on the road!  Which just happened to have coincided with one of the most aggressive real estate markets in history, with thousands of buyers flocking to the quickly ascending prices while the interest rates remained historically low.    —> CLICK ON IMAGE TO
