I was raised spending summer months and holidays in the outdoors of Montana. On weekends, when possible, we would adventure out to areas of exceptional landscape. When I came to Carmel the first time, I fell in love with it and never left. It never occurred to me that there could be such beauty in one area. It was 1979 and a friend told me she thought I would be captivated, I certainly was. I had been selling Real Estate in Southern California and feeling misplaced; here I was at home.
Real Estate on the Monterey Peninsula is different than other markets. You buy here because of a life style choice. It is a choice that begins with an appreciation for one of the most beautiful areas in the world. When you walk the streets of Carmel you want to stay, or when you hike the Big Sur Coast you know this is where you belong. Carmel Valley is home to those who believe "they are already in heaven because they live in Carmel Valley." Ask any question about the charms of Monterey, the small town atmosphere of Pacific Grove, the privacy of Pebble Beach, the quaintness of Carmel, the dramatic beauty of Carmel Highlands or the exceptional Big Sur Coast and I will gladly take you into these areas and help you understand their differences.
