Coastal Premier Properties Welcomes Lauren Anderson

Coastal Premier Properties is happy to welcome Lauren Anderson! Lauren will be working out of our La Costa office.

Lauren Anderson Welcome

Lauren Anderson is a San Diego native and was born and raised in North County. Her family has deep roots in the community and moved from the East Coast in the early 1900’s settling outside of Fallbrook. North County has been Lauren’s home for the majority of her life minus a year she lived in Vail, Colorado. She aided in the opening of a new restaurant and took lead with the training and hiring of new staff. After the restaurant was up and running she had to move back because she believes there is no where better to live than San Diego. She has a passion for this community and love sharing all it has to offer.

Lauren attained her Bachelors Degree in Business Finance at California State University San Marcos in 2006. Her degree gave her a wealth of knowledge in finance and expanded her knowledge of critical thinking and negotiations. Lauren feels that it sets her ahead of other agents who may not have experience understanding financial documents and negotiations.

Post college she spent the early part of her career working as a credit analyst for a leasing company and then worked in international accounting and domestic commissions. The recession of 2009 changed the course of her career to restaurant management and training. In 2015 she was looking for her next step and found Real Estate was exactly what she was looking for. Lauren blends her knowledge in finance and her extensive background in customer service to meet her clients needs, how to listen, and how to tailor ideas and insights so everyone gets what they need. Buying or selling a house can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be. Lauren believes you should love where you live and enjoy the process of finding it, and she is there to help with both.

Why It Could Be Beneficial to Invest in San Diego Real Estate

San Diego is world renowned for it’s beautiful coastal wild life, historical and modern cities, and of course its sunny, beach culture. There is no doubt that San Diego attracts tourists and visitors from all around the world to experience the San Diego lifestyle. Both locals and outsiders can both agree that San Diego is a beautiful place with an overabundance of exciting activities and new adventures to embark on, but one also has to wonder if San Diego is also a good place to invest in property or to own a home?

Currently, the overall US housing market is thriving and many individuals are looking to invest in property all over the country, but of course there are some specific location that would be better than others to invest in property. Experts conclude that San Diego housing prices will continue to increase, and even if there is an unexpected decline, it will still be above the rate of inflation. In the NAR Quarterly Report released in February, 2016 it was that San Diego ranked 5th in the most expensive housing markets in the United States where the median sales price was up 5.9% at $486,000. However like many other cities, economists predict that San Diego’s surge up in home prices will start to slow as some estimate that it is close to peaking.

In terms of rent prices, San Diego was ranked number 10 in American cities where rent was growing the fastest. There is a high level of competitiveness among renters in San Diego since the rent-ability is only around 5% in latest statistics, however this can mean great news for property investors and landowners. If the property you are investing in is decent condition in a fairly nice location, you will receive many applications and options to rent out your house or apartment. With this level of competition and demand, owning a property and renting it out is an effective and smart way to have another solid source of income and increase cash flow.

San Diego is also one of the few places in the US where out-of-town investors are encouraged and willing to invest and buy property. Due to San Diego’s low crime rates, comfortable climate, and a bustling economy in the tourism, technological, and medical fields, non-San Diegans have goods reasons to safely invest in property with minimal risk. Finally, the cultural and ethnic diversity in San Diego makes its a very warm and welcoming city; on top of which, San Diego is also renowned place to live for it’s top rated schools, efficient public transportation, and is environmentally aware and friendly. There is no question that San Diego is a great and amazing city and owning or investing in a property here would only be beneficial and positive!

Where to See July 4th Fireworks in San Diego

4th of July in San Diego

When it comes to Independence Day, San Diego goes big. So big, in fact, that the city is home to one of the largest firework displays on the West Coast (if not the largest). It’s a time-honored tradition that never fails to deliver a good time. So where can you go to catch the show?

Luckily, T+L has you covered. From a rooftop speakeasy in the Historic Gaslamp Quarter to a cruise around San Diego Bay to the terrace of one of the city’s most celebrated hotels, read on for the best tricks, tips, and spots to make the most of your holiday this year.

Downtown

There are only three words to describe July Fourth in downtown San Diego: Big Bay Boom. Starting at 9 p.m. and launched from barges located around the bay, not only is this the largest fireworks show in town, but the display is so big and so loud, it can be seen and heard from pretty much any part of downtown.

If you want to be in the thick of the action, your best bet is to heed Horace Greeley’s advice and “head west.” You can’t go wrong in Pacific Beach, Mission Beach, Harbor Island, and Shelter Island—all great locations to see the fireworks. Get there early and post up at the beach with all your essentials. These areas tend to fill up fast and it will be more rewarding if you come prepared with beach blankets and beverages in tow.

As in years past, a free shuttle service will be available to and from Harbor Island and Shelter Island. Mission Bay is a perennially popular party spot, made all the more fun if you have access to a boat.

Speaking of boats, harbor cruises are a really fun and exciting way to spend the holiday. Check out Hornblower Cruise Line’s special 4th of July Fireworks Dinner Cruise. Included with the price of admission is a dinner buffet and some killer views of beautiful downtown San Diego.

If you’re hoping to stick around the city, The Nolen’s rooftop bar and lounge in the heart of the historic Gaslamp Quarter is your best bet. Likewise, the views from Mister A’s rooftop will go un-paralleled, as will the experience of dining at one of the city’s most distinguished locales.

For those looking to mix in a bit of history on this already historic occasion, Old Town will be hosting a free, old-fashioned Fourth of July celebration where guests can relive the excitement of an 1800s Independence Day party. The all-day event starts at 10 a.m. and includes activities and games for all ages. Guests are encouraged to participate in the parade around the plaza reminiscent of the July 4 parades of early San Diego with music, animals, banners, and people in historical costumes.

La Jolla Shores

Working your way up the coast, La Valencia Hotel—also known as La Jolla’s Pink Lady—will come alive with music and entertainment for this year’s Fourth. Perched above the cliffs of La Jolla Cove, this timeless hotel offers extraordinary views of the Pacific Ocean and overlooking Ellen Browning Scripps Park guests and diners can enjoy drinks on the terrace of the hotel which affords both the views and a sense of respite from the crowds below.

Del Mar

If you’re looking to celebrate in style, guests of the Fairmont Grand Del Mar will be able to partake in their own private fireworks show. As in previous years, the party will take place on the resort’s Aria Lawn and feature a sunset barbecue buffet including all-American favorites, live music, and some of the best fireworks in town. Non-resort guests can enjoy a Fourth of July brunch from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., or dinner from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at Amaya.

For more information about where or how you can celebrate this fourth of July, check out SanDiego.org.

Coastal Premier Properties Welcomes Guadalupe Belandres

Coastal Premier Properties is happy to welcome Guadalupe Belandres! Guadalupe will be working out of our San Marcos office.

CPP_WelcomeAgentGuadalupe

About Guadalupe:

For much of my adult life, my husband’s employer has moved us to different parts of the country and the world. While it’s been hard to be away from family and friends, it has been a wonderful experience living in and learning from different cultures.  We lived for a time in Nassau, Bahamas where I worked at the US Embassy for the US Navy as the Executive Assistant to the Navy Commander.  We coordinated the US military activities that took place on the islands of the Bahamas, which included humanitarian projects, special operations, and RR (rest and recreations visits) from navy ships coming from deployments.  I assisted military personnel with accommodations, and coordinated events (retirement parties, receptions, high level military visits). We loved living there and enjoyed seeing the beautiful crystal waters everyday as we drove the kids to school and work.

We also spent some time in Tempe, Arizona where I attended graduate school at Arizona State University and received my masters in Higher and Post-secondary Education. I also worked as a Program Advisor for a college preparatory program for underrepresented groups.  I loved working with the students and parents, and inspiring students to do their best as well as teaching parents how to best support their children through the university process as many of them had never attended college.

I also worked for the US Consulate General in Vancouver, British Columbia as the community liaison coordinator.  My job was to assist US government employees and their families with a smooth transition to their new post which included providing assistance with finding housing, choosing schools, medical info, and vent planning, among other things, I was their first point of contact.  For many of these families, it was their first time away from home or away from the U.S. so I made sure they received the information they needed and that I was available to them for any questions or concerns before and during their tour in Canada.

Recently, my family moved one last time to North County San Diego, making Vista our new home.  For the first time in many years we are near our two grown children and we couldn’t be happier!  We look forward to spending time as a family again.

I have aligned myself with Coastal Premier Properties because I resonated with their core values of putting clients first and working collaboratively with other agents inside and outside the company to achieve the best possible outcome for everyone.

I have chosen a career in real estate because it marries some of the best things from my previous work experiences. I absolutely love helping people through a transition period in their lives. It is important to me to ensure that people get the help they need. When people are happy, I feel satisfied that I have done my job to the best of my abilities.
