Windermere Homes & Estates Welcomes Faye Hines to its Escondido Branch

A native of San Diego County, Team Leader Faye Hines began her real estate career after college by working in the title insurance and escrow industry in Los Angeles County  She transitioned to selling real estate in 1976 at a small firm in Escondido.  Only three years later, Faye and her business partner opened ERA Property Movers, Inc., which they owned and operated for 22 years.  Under that partnership’s leadership the agency became one of the most successful in North San Diego County.  Today, after more than 40 years in the industry, Faye is a highly respected mainstay in San Diego real estate.  She has consistently been the recipient of numerous leadership, sales, and excellence awards.  Faye is known for her fast knowledge and exceptional client relationships that last long after the transaction is complete, qualities which she has instilled into every member of The Hines Team.


Outside of real estate, Faye loves to travel and serve.  She combines these two passions through annual mission trips to the Central Plateau region of Haiti where she works to empower and improve the lives of the Haitian people.  Faye is extremely close with her two children, their spouses, and the six grandchildren, who often travel to California to spend time with their energetic, fun-loving “Grandy”.  It doesn’t take long to recognize Faye’s warmth and wisdom, which is why so many of her clients become lifelong friends, returning time and time again to the Hines Team for all their real estate needs.


“I am personally thrilled to have Faye and her team join our company this year!” exclaims Rich Johnson, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates. “As we grow and expand each year, it gives me great pride to have a team like Faye’s join us. With their outstanding reputation in the Escondido market, it is a huge compliment to have her decide to join us here at Windermere.”
