My position as an Associate Broker for Windermere Homes and Estates and The Post Group Real Estate is the continuation of a career path that began in the building industry, as a laborer, working up to assistant superintendent. I then earned my license to sell/finance real estate, working in retail lending, and as a wholesale mortgage account executive. In 1997 I decided to focus exclusively on home sales with Prudential California Real Estate, where I joined The Hadley Home Team, a consistent top 1% nationwide team in units sold. We were recruited by Real Living Real Estate and then Carrington Real Estate Services. In January of 2018, Carrington was acquired by Windermere Homes and Estates. I’m excited and energized to join this dynamic real estate company.
In 1994, I moved my family to North San Diego County, my main area of focus. As a native of America’s Finest City, however, I have a wide knowledge of all of San Diego. This, along with my construction and finance experience, gives me a unique skill set most realtors don’t have. I can speak knowledgeably with home inspectors as well as buyers qualifying for loans.
2017 was the most challenging yet rewarding year of my life. I took time off to care for my ailing father, Harry, in my home, managing his care until his passing last Fall. Though difficult, this brought with it a fresh perspective; I’m thankful for the precious time I was able to have with him.
Having been a member of a successful sales team, I decided to form my own in 2017. The Post Group Real Estate is made up of myself, buyer’s agent, Kristen Wheelock, and transaction coordinator, Pat Payne. The relationships I have with trusted lenders, skilled escrow officers, painters, handymen, and home stagers form a complete team that can meet the needs of any client.
If you are in need of Real Estate services or simply need a top-notch referral please don’t hesitate to contact me.
A longtime educator, Kristen embarked upon her second career in 2017. Choosing the real estate profession seemed a natural extension of her calling to serve others. Whether that means teaching high school English, helping family and friends, or finding the perfect home for her client, Kristen is a giver; of her time, knowledge, talents, and so much more.
Having been raised in Southern California, Kristen has an in-depth knowledge of neighborhoods and trends from the inside out, both in San Diego and Southern Orange County. Added to this, is her ability to multitask, developed from years in the classroom. When she takes on a project, Kristen immerses herself in it completely, both looking at the big picture and handling the details until the desired results are achieved.
A graduate of San Diego State University with a B.A in English, Kristen’s educational background has proven to be extremely valuable in the real estate field as well. Her teaching experience has equipped her with the communication skills needed to deal with a wide variety of situations. She has been a real estate investor herself since 1986, having bought and sold over 20 properties. During the course of many of these transactions, Kristen often felt a disconnect between herself and the agent involved, resulting in the unnecessary stress and frustration that comes from a lack of communication. She frequently felt shortchanged by the answers and guidance she was given, often feeling like she needed to pry the relevant information out of the agents involved. As an agent now herself, Kristen has a keen sensitivity to her clients’ need for information and meets that need with clear, timely communication.
Kristen has joined forces with Windermere Homes & Estates, and with Post Group Real Estate, a team in the Windermere family, giving her access to over 50 years of direct experience to draw on from her supporting team alone.
Raising three successful, college-educated children has been her proudest, most meaningful work; now Kristen is ready to work for you, or anyone you know who could benefit from her experience, communication, and caring commitment.
In her free time Kristen enjoys serving at church, golf and tennis, live music, travel, and many other interests.
