As many of you know two years ago Gary and I became investors in Keller Williams Realty, San Diego Central. We are really pleased with the growth of the market center and thoroughly enjoy visiting our San Diego office. 14 months ago we teamed up with our business partner, at the San Diego office, Joe Lerner, to list a one-of-a-kind property. 711 A Avenue, on the island of Coronado, was not like any other house on the island. If you have ever visited Coronado, you know that the average home there is about 2500 sq. ft. and sits on a 3000 sq. ft lot which, by the way, sells for $2.5 million. 711 A Avenue is a 9 bedroom, 13 bathroom, and 14,000 sq. ft masterpiece, built at the turn of the century. Once more it sits on a nearly two-acre lot just a few blocks from the world famous, Del Coronado Hotel. Originally drafted by noted architects, William Hebbard and Irving Gill in 1898, the commission was to be a vacation getaway for a wealthy Standard Oil executive. The work eventually was completed in 1929 and, by then, it had become the Southern California retirement home of the former surgeon general of New York. Purchased again at auction in 1950, 711 A Avenue became the home to a family of stalwart ‘islanders’, dedicated to the small-town community, of Coronado. The manor since has been the site of countless historical tours, social functions, and picturesque garden weddings. If you would like to see 711 A Avenue click here for a tour of the property.

Here is where it gets good: In just 14 months I am pleased to announce that the Colorado Dream House Team and the Lerner Realty Group have sold the mansion for $13.3 million. In an amazing twist of events, the buyer is a well-known Denver businessman.

I just wanted to take an opportunity to acknowledge the great work of all involved and once again I am proud to say we have some of the best marketing strategies in all of the real estate market. This is another example of how the Colorado Dream House Team’s marketing can sell a home in any state, at any price range.
