Greetings and salutations!
Coast Home Watch of La Jolla, CA, has earned Accredited Member status in the NHWA for the fifth consecutive year.
Owner Mary Ellen Kinnaman’s family has been in the San Diego area since 1906. She has
worked in the real estate community since 1986.
In 2011, a client who owns many homes throughout the country came to Mary Ellen with a request to operate a Home Watch company. Until that time, she had no awareness of the Home Watch industry, even though she had sold homes to many absentee homeowners. Occasionally she would check those clients’ homes as a courtesy, and she was intrigued by the concept of operating a full-service Home Watch business, with a systematic program to check homes for absentee homeowners. Mary Ellen spent about a year researching what was involved in a full-time operation of a Home Watch business, checking to verify whether there was a service already in place within the San Diego community and questioning select Realtor associates as to the viability of offering a Home Watch service. She was very impressed with the enthusiasm of those Realtors, which she attributes to her long-time relationships with the real estate community as an ethical Realtor, whom her associates can trust to handle the tasks involved to monitor the homes of their absentee clients and the knowledge that will not interrupt the real estate relationships with their clients.
Mary Ellen is a member of La Jolla Parks and Beaches Committee; Children’s Pool Beautification Committee; REBA-La Jolla Brokers Association; San Diego Board of Realtors; San Diego Native Plant Society; and the Portuguese Water Dog Club of America.
Coast Home Watch serves LaJolla, Pacific Beach, Point Loma, Ocean Beach, San Diego, Del Mar, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Cardiff By the Sea, Carlsbad, and Rancho Santa Fe. You can reach Mary Ellen at (858) 254-3602 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Learn more at www.CoastHomeWatch.com.
Congratulations, Mary Ellen!
As always, I wish you
