Debbie Docherty and Amie Peterson Sell Spacious, Oceanfront Sunset Beach Home for $5.7 Million

First Team Real EstateSUNSET BEACH, CA – Experienced mother and daughter real estate team, Debbie Docherty and Amie Peterson of First Team Real Estate, represented the seller of 16566 S Pacific Avenue closing sale for $5.7 million in late October. Located on the sand in Sunset Beach, fellow First Team agent Joel Spencer brought the buyer for the property, a long-time client of over 35 years. 

Working with their sellers over the course of many months to prepare the home for the market, Debbie and Amie coordinated every detail of the sale from print advertising and digital marketing to its optimized presentation and staging. “For this property, we coordinated with a professional stager to showcase the unique features of the home and create an inviting space that would appeal to all potential buyers, while maximizing the incredible location and panoramic views,” explains Amie. “The buyers, their agent Joel, and our sellers were all a delight to work with, and the entire transaction was smooth and seamless.”

The five-bedroom corner lot property provides privacy with only one neighbor and features panoramic ocean, city lights, and harbor views from a rooftop deck, as well as water views from all levels. The spacious home also includes a main floor bedroom and full bathroom, rear wood deck with grass area, multiple fireplaces and balconies, high ceilings, and fresh interior and exterior paint. 

“My longtime clients have purchased multiple Sunset Beach waterfront homes with me, but they fell in love with this one in particular because of the spacious, corner beachfront location and plan to use it as their new primary residence,” says Joel. “They are fantastic to work with, and I am currently selling their custom home in Fountain Valley as well, listed for $2.48 million.”

With limited inventory continually driving up home values over the last year, Southern California’s housing market offers particularly advantageous opportunities for homeowners who are ready to sell and invest in their dream home closer to the coast. 

“Home values have increased, especially in the luxury coastal Orange County market, and they will likely continue to do so,” describes Amie. “Sunset Beach is the only area of Huntington Beach with single family-homes on the sand, so purchasing in this community is a great investment!”
