Selling homes is what I have done for a living since 1989. I am self supportive and the sole owner of Preferred Properties. This is not a part time job or a hobby. This is a business and I treat it that way.

Carmel by the Sea

Engaging! Carmel-by-the Sea is a one square mile village reminiscent of a small European town. You will find small cottages built in the early 1900’s alongside newly built homes. The city has embraced keeping Carmel’s authenticity. We have no sidewalks or streetlights in the residential areas. The most unique feature is homes do not have traditional addresses. They are identified by the location. Hence, a house would be identified as on Carmelo, 3SW of 13th. (Physically on Carmelo Street, the count up 3 houses on the southwest side of the street) Since this can be confusing many homeowners name their home. So walking through town you might see placards such as The Rose Cottage, Fables, Lemon Drop, Curtain Call, Sea Urchin or Tinkerbelle in front of the house. Yes, people walk here and say hello as they pass others on the street. This is what makes it such a uniquely friendly place to live.
