Beran Group of First Team Real Estate Represents Buyer and Seller of $6.5 Million Oceanside Vacation Rental

1638551858OCEANSIDE, CA – Closing sale at $6,500,000, the Beran Group represented both the home buyer and seller of 1213 S Pacific St in Oceanside, a luxurious oceanfront vacation rental property. An integral part of the local community specializing in the coastal Oceanside and Carlsbad real estate markets for over 40 years, the Beran Group includes top-producer John Beran, Sharon Whittlesey, and Lindsay Himmel. Closing over $73 million dollars in volume year to date, the team utilized their signature high-touch, personalized approach to coordinate every aspect of the sale, seamlessly changing ownership without disrupting the lucrative rental business.


“We had the pleasure of working with the original owner of this unique home, which allowed us to extract detailed information about the construction, finishes, and history of this property, and share that story with potential buyers,” explains Lindsay Himmel. “We noticed that once buyers were able to get a thorough understanding of the extra details and considerations the owner made when building the property, they understood the true value and desirability of this property over others.”

Actively used by the previous owner as a vacation rental, the Beran Group diligently coordinated all showings, inspections, and walk throughs around the tight schedule of the rental guest turnover. “That can make it tricky to try to sell a property, when you cannot just show a home or get in at any time. But one of us was available during these specific window timeframes in order to get people through the property and ensure that the home was left in pristine condition for the guests that would be checking in within the next couple hours,” says Lindsay.

“It was important to this buyer to keep the income stream going even after closing so we ensured that it was a smooth transition for the buyer to take over future reservations and receive deposits through escrow, as well as transfer the online reservation booking pages.”


A one-of-a-kind oceanfront estate featuring five levels, six bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms, an elevator and outdoor entertaining spaces, the property also includes private beach with ocean access. Showcasing stunning white-water views from almost every bedroom, the uniquely built home has a versatile floorplan and oversized rooftop terrace. Perfectly situated on Pacific St, with easy access to the Oceanside pier, trendy eateries, coffee shops, and craft breweries, the vacation home encapsulates the coastal town’s iconic charm.

Well-known by many residents within the tightknit community, the Beran Group works like a family business and often represents both the buyers and sellers on the same property transaction. “The beauty of being a team is that we can ensure that both buyer and seller have their own point person and receive the representation they need,” describes Lindsay. “And because we’ve done so many sales along Pacific Street, we often see our past and current clients pulling into their driveways or walking their dogs as we work the area going from appointments. It’s one of the best parts of our business, that we are part of the community, and the community knows us!”


Specializing in North County San Diego for decades, the Beran Group’s proven results in the market are second to none. “Many people have taken an interest and see the value in owning a slice of paradise, but there are only so many beach close homes,” explains Lindsay. “We see lots of upward potential for Oceanside, and we’re excited to continue serving our community.”
