Where I'm from - San Diego
About me - Growing up, I spent childhood summers staying in vacation rentals along the coast of San Diego, which is where I created some of my earliest and favorite memories with friends and family. Since then, my experience in other businesses with elements of real estate and hospitality provided the foundation to create and build Bluewater Vacation Homes. Bluewater was founded with the intention to never be a "Me-Too" vacation rental agency, but instead, be the "Go-To" vacation rental agency for both the owners of top-quality vacation homes and guests who expect more than what a typical agency can provide. I love that Bluewater gives me the opportunity to see friends and families connect or re-connect and create their own lifelong memories.
Why I love San Diego - What's not to love? Of course, you can’t beat the weather, but the options for fun and adventure are endless: beautiful coastlines, mountains, deserts, amusement parks, beaches, bays, breweries, museums, state parks, boating, fishing, surfing, horse racing, sports, etc. It's all here!
How I contribute to the Bluewater experience - My role in the company is to keep a tight focus on our responsibility to provide our guests with clean, well-maintained and well-appointed homes, where our guests can relax, recharge, while getting away from life's pressures. When we do these things well, we serve our homeowner-partners' best interests at the same time.
Why makes Bluewater different? - I would sum it up by saying we're really good at being proactive rather than reactive, and that is very hard to do in this business.

About me - I'm a lover of food, family' friends, and San Diego. Being from Northern California, I'm also a big SF Giants fan.
Why I love San Diego - It's a big city with a small town feel. The food, the beach, the people and the weather can’t be beat. Also catching a baseball game is much cheaper at Petco than at ATT park.
How I contribute to the Bluewater experience - Having been with the company almost since the beginning, I've been able to see every aspect of it. I really enjoy travelling myself, so helping people plan their vacation is just as exciting for me as it is for the guests.
Why makes Bluewater different? - We really care about our guests and owners. Whether it's an annual trip or a once in a lifetime vacation, we want to make sure every guest has a memorable experience.
