I have loved 333 Coast Boulevard from the time that I watched them being built in 1986.  As a new rookie agent with Merrill Lynch Realty on Prospect, I was given the honor of representing several Merrill Lynch upper management and financial consultants.  One of the financial consultants was interested in purchasing something "new" in La Jolla and I showed him 333 Coast.   He ended up purchasing an ocean view front unit and enjoyed living there until he was transferred to Florida.  These contemporary units, although now over 20 years old, still are nicely maintained and in many ways ahead of the other condominium projects in La Jolla with their architectural style and sophistication.  333 Coast in La Jolla features 24 contemporary style two-bedroom units across the street from a beautifu...

I love to take a morning walk along the beach at La Jolla Shores.  Early mornings are my favorite because over the years I have seen the same people walking and we greet each other... a comforting and familiar ritual.  Many of my "friends" bring their dogs for walks along the beach, which you are allowed to do until 9 am.  Although there is a leash requirement, many of the pet owners go down the beach and past the Scripps Pier to let their dogs roam freely chasing the seabirds and frolicking in the surf.  Have you ever seen a dog smiling?  Here you will see that and the sheer pleasure they are experiencing while running freely along the sand... you can't help but smile along with them.  My favorite spot to stop and welcome the morning is under the La Jolla Scripps Pier.  I like to stand...

As we head into Fall, 2008.....the most important factor noted in the high end and central coastal housing market is our rising inventory levels.What I have noticed lately is that the coastal market activity for homes has slowed in the past few months, but the rest of the market throughout San Diego has seen increased sales due to the amount of bank owned foreclosed homes and condos selling in those neighborhoods.Here are current active and pending numbers for La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe:La Jolla, 92037: 243 Actively listed homes and 23 currently in escrowDel Mar 92014: 131 Actively listed homes and just 13 in escrowRancho Santa Fe 92067: 271 Actively listed homes but just 22 in escrowSo yes, the coastal area and high end market is slowing down some, but prices are not necessa...
