Here you’ll find some of the most coveted luxury properties in California, including oceanfront homes with stunning views of the coastline and estate homes with direct beach access. It’s not unusual for these homes to have balconies, outdoor pools, and tropical landscaping.

Girard Avenue and Prospect Street are filled with excellent restaurants, upscale boutiques, familiar chain stores, and hip galleries.

Living in Encinitas brings you close to rugged, breathtaking shores and the lush greenery of Black Mountain Open Space Park. The renowned luxury communities of Old Encinitas, New Encinitas, Cardiff-by-the-Sea, Leucadia, and Olivenhain can be found here. Each has its own flavor and a fine selection of prime coastal property.

Oceanfront homes with open floor plans and panoramic views are typical, and there’s a variety of architectural styles to choose from.

The Pacific Coast Highway, the main drag, is lined with surf shops, food stands, yoga studios, and other local businesses. Swami’s Beach, a famed surfing spot, attracts surfers and beach lovers from all over the world.

Del Mar, or “The Sea” in Spanish, lies on a choice stretch on the Pacific Coast. Bluffs, sandy beaches, rocky coves, and rolling hills form the dramatic landscape. The mild weather is conducive to a wide range of outdoor activities including swimming, golfing, and camping.

Luxury homes in gated and non-gated enclaves typically have vaulted ceilings, natural wood cabinetry, bamboo flooring, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls.

Oversized lots and a low population density allow many residents to keep horses. The Del Mar Racetrack showcases some of the finest thoroughbreds during racing season, attracting droves of horse enthusiasts.

Known as one of the most desirable places to live in San Diego, Carmel Valley has an array of luxury homes that command views of the ocean, valley, mountains, and designer golf courses. Beamed ceilings, wood burning fireplaces, and outdoor pools are common features.

Without his help, I wouldn’t have been able to sell my property for more than my asking price. Professional, considerate, and very experienced, Robert helped me prep my home, marketed the heck out of it, and was amazing at the negotiation table. If you’re selling your home in San Diego, talk to Robert..

Valuable Knowledge

I read reviews all the time and have never felt compelled to write one…till now. Why now you might ask? Because a great and phenomenal thing happened regarding my real estate experience. Had a nice condo I needed to sell. Did some research, yes and read some reviews and Mr. R.C. Welles’ name came up more than a few times. So I contacted Mr. Welles and we discussed several things. Great discussion, super advice, and I knowing we were in good hands! Wow, later I found out I was in great hands! We had an offer immediately, but the wise Mr. Welles advised he believed based on his knowledge of the market and conversations with others that interest was there and to wait a day or so before making a decision on the offer. As you suspected, multiple offers came in with more than a few exceeding my asking price! Mr. Welles was absolutely invaluable during this time with wise advice and priceless friendship. Kept me informed throughout this period, talked to me like a long-time friend. How can you not choose someone like this with such kindness, knowledge, skill and experience? Listen, make an informed choice, read reviews like this, then choose the best, Mr. R.C. Welles, your Real Estate Expert and one of my friends. Let this serve as my introduction and tell him I sent you! Mark.

Everybody please read this!

Last March, a whole year ago now, my sister and I were looking for a small piece of land where we could retire and have our horses and a vegetable garden. We met Robert Wells where he was holding an open house in Pine Valley. The property he was holding an open house was interesting but not just what we wanted. So, Robert set us up to see a few more properties that were for sale after we told him what we were looking for. Within a week he found us a beautiful 5 acre property with a wonderful well, good soil and riding trails everywhere around us. There were a couple problems that came up during the escrow period due to the seller not wanting to perform with a septic inspection but Robert took care of it and we closed escrow on time. Best of all, we have remained best friends with Robert and, another benefit for us, he is an excellent cook...we have benefited from that fact a few times. Robert makes the best version of Madam Wu's pungent ribs I have ever tasted and he serves it up with his own Caesar salad...yummm. All in all, Robert has helped us tremendously, he is a great guy and he knows his business. Thank you Robert, Jane R..

Here is a good story with a great ending

My family and I can offer nothing less than the highest praise for the swift and effective way in which Robert Welles handled the sale of our townhouse. He was gracious and professional at every step of the process, managed to line up multiple attractive offers, and -- most striking of all -- ultimately helped us negotiate a price that was significantly higher than the neighbors ever thought possible. "RC" Welles is a champ. -Chandler S..

RC Welles is a Champ

Mr. Welles, I just want to thank you for your help in purchasing my property. You were always available to answer my questions, if you were busy you at least responded that you'd get back to me very soon. You maintained excellent communication during the entire process. When I was informed of needed repairs during inspections you helped me strategize in order to minimize the costs of repairs that were ultimately paid by the seller. After the close of escrow we discovered the seller misrepresented what was included in the property and you assisted in obtaining an additional ,500 as compensation for the sellers omission. I would highly recommend you to any of my friends or acquaintances to help in their real estate purchases. Again thank you for your professionalism, excellent communication and responsiveness. Sincerely, George Bishop.
