Rebecca-Philpott-smWindermere Homes & Estates and Bonnie Maloney are thrilled to have such a qualified agent as Rebecca Philpott join the team. The Bonney Maloney Real Estate Team, based out of the Windermere Escondido office, has been helping San Diegan’s buy and sell properties since 2004.

Rebecca brings a true passion for architecture, design and finance to the team. After completing her degree, Rebecca went on to develop hundreds of properties, 389 in Hemet alone. Developing and decorating model homes became a normal routine for the busy designer, working home after home, continually adding to her already extensive portfolio.

With business growing at such a rapid pace, Rebecca inevitably found herself learning about loans throughout the process. As a fundamental piece of all transactions, loans became somewhat of a specialty for the busy developer. While business grew, Rebecca soon discovered a field that embodied everything that she had already been working toward – real estate.

For over 10 years, Rebecca not only sold homes, but was also able to help her clients with obtaining a loan for the listings she sold. This key aspect allowed the shining agent to stand out amongst a sea of competitors, as she could not only develop and design the home of your dreams, but could assist you from A-Z in the process.

“I am so thrilled to have Rebecca join our team. Her sales, finance and design experience offers so much to our portfolio of services. From staging to pricing, Rebecca adds unique value when selling and buying homes in the San Diego and Riverside Counties,” says Maloney of her newest agent.

Rebecca’s sales spread throughout Southern California, from North County to the Tri-City areas of San Diego, finally bringing her to Windermere Homes & Estates. Coupled up with Bonnie Maloney’s infamous team of seasoned agents, Rebecca can help clients from start to finish, guiding them through the buying and selling process with ease. Come see Rebecca Philpott and her team over at Windermere’s newest office, located at 316 W Mission Avenue, San Diego.

Is Vista the new emerging area for luxury homes?

quails_trail_rd_891_11_23146_mlsSan Diego – July 11, 2016 – When you think about Vista housing, your first thought might not be million dollar estates.  Think again because there are some gorgeous, custom, luxury, homes and estates in Vista that appeal to the most discriminating buyer.

And it’s in demand.

In fact, the highest priced home in Vista (area codes 92081, 92083, 92084) this year sold for was for $1,400,000.00 by Gini De Armas of Windermere Homes & Estates. The average DOM (days on market) for a home listed in Vista above $1 million dollars is 92 days. Gini, through her connection, was able to find a buyer for the home within a week and the home closed escrow 30 days later. It was never even “on the market”, making this transaction hassle-free for both the buyer and the seller.

“It’s not every day that you get an agent who is ready to bring so much knowledge to the table and has so many connections within the industry. Gini is a constant leader in the real estate market, she goes above and beyond to meet her client’s expectations and it is truly a great honor to have such top-level talent working with us,” Brian Gooding, co-owner.

This luxury 4,245 sq/ft Vista home with 5+ bedrooms is located in the gated community of Quails Ranch, a special niche community with about 35+ homes total. This home boasts luscious landscape, gorgeous views, fruit trees, elaborate outdoor entertainment living area with pool, fire pits, courtyards and fountains. Additional elaborate features of this executive home include a newly built luxury 400+ sq/ft home office, a state-of-the-art sound room, wine cellar, game room and enclosed RV parking.
