2nd Home or Vacation Home

Looking for a getaway to escape the stress of everyday life?

Living at the beach is a lifestyle change that is a healthy choice. With the stresses of work and the sense of urgency exuding from everything we do, peace and tranquility are here. You definitely get the sense you have left the work at the office when you escape to a vacation home. You can relax and enjoy a slower pace of life as you watch the sunset cascade into the horizon while you cradle a glass of wine between your fingertips.

Whether you are looking for a

All of these can fall into the category of a vacation home.

Do you plan to entertain while you vacation? If so, then a home with suitable parking must be considered. Do you intend to bring your pets on vacation? If so, perhaps a home with a yard is needed. Would you like to earn rental income on this property a few months of the year? These are questions that I can help you address.

You need a local real estate expert.

I was born in Newport Beach, grew up in an oceanfront home in Corona del Mar, and moved to Laguna Beach where I graduated from Laguna Beach High School. My passion in real estate drove me to earn a B.S. in real estate finance from USC. I understand the coastal home market and you need a coastal specialist. Do you enjoy walking on the tide pools or riding the waves as a surfer? Not all beaches are the same. For example, Woods Cove beach in Laguna is not a beach for surfers; however, it is a quaint and romantic setting for a sunset picnic on the beach. I know the differences between the various beaches from Newport Beach to San Clemente.

Here is what one of my past clients, Mark Shea, said about my services:

As my wife and I had been waiting to move into a certain neighborhood, we needed someone to get an early jump on any activity…Gilda carefully listened to our needs as well as our wants as we waited for the right opportunity,.  We were fortunate enough to find our dream home on one of the best streets in the neighborhood. The purchase and related escrow were stress-free as Gilda guided us through the process.

If you are looking to purchase over the next 12 months, you want a customized search saving you time. Anybody can search for homes and you can even search for homes on my website, but if you want to cut through all of the inventory and clutter, I can help you by hand selecting homes to suit your specific needs.

Here is the next step. Call me at (949) 683-7232, email me at GDuhs@ColdwellBanker.com or fill out the info below and I will contact you.

I look forward to personally speaking with you.

P.S. Because of my reputation in the area, I have a number of motivated sellers that do not have their homes openly listed on the market. I can share these sellers and homes with you after our initial conversation.
