Paso Robles Named Top Traveling Destination

Paso Robles

Paso Robles Named Top Destination

Orbitz recently named 17 amazing places to travel to all over the world in 2017, and Paso Robles is fourth on the list! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I feel that lists like these stand as great reminders of what a beautiful paradise we live in. Everything we could ever want is right at our fingertips. This is what makes the Central Coast a wonderful place to visit, but it’s an even more wonderful place to live!

Here are some of the reasons that Orbitz included Paso Robles on their list:

  • The wineries from Los Angeles to San Francisco include more than 400 in number, and they aren’t as overpriced and overcrowded as the Napa Valley area.
  • Paso Robles is home to some of the oldest, and some of the best, wineries in the state, without being commercialized like other popular wine regions.
  • Paso is also home to some legendary wineries, such as JUSTIN Winery and Eberle, tucked into the Paso Robles hillsides among the rest

Aside from wine, Paso Robles has it all. This includes:

  • A walkable downtown full of local businesses, a beautiful park and a slew of small-town activities throughout the year
  • Close proximity to nature, including Lake Nacimiento, ocean beaches, mountain trails, bike paths and more
  • Close proximity to all of the other Central Coast towns and cities, making it easy to enjoy all that the region has to offer as a visitor or resident
  • Luxury accommodations for visitors, such as the Hotel Cheval and Allegretto Vineyard Resort, which make great overnight or weekend getaways for locals as well
  • Farm-to-fork movement found at local restaurants, such as Thomas Hill Organics and Artisan, and growing, so that you can enjoy the freshest of ingredients grown at local farms

As you can see, there are dozens of reasons to fall in love with the Paso Robles region! What do you love most about this area? Leave a comment and share with the rest of us!

While the spotlight is shown on Paso Robles in this Orbitz article, it’s really a shout out to the Central Coast region as a whole. Each of the towns and communities I work in throughout the SLO County and Monterey County area has its own perks, features and attractions.

If you need help choosing the one that best suits you and your needs, contact me! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I can steer you in the right direction, offer you relocation assistance, and help you buy the Central Coast home of your dreams, which also fits your needs and budget.

Don’t just visit Paso Robles and the Central Coast region. Make it your permanent home or vacation home destination! Contact me at any time to learn more, ask questions or get started on your home-buying goals.

Benefits to Living on Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Living on Lake Nacimiento, CA

Have you always dreamed of living on a lake? Lake Nacimiento is your perfect chance! As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I have many waterfront listings currently available, and I can fill you in on all of the wonderful perks you can enjoy by living on or near a lake.

One obvious perk is the amazing views you get to enjoy from your home year-round. Look outside and see the calm water and beautiful surroundings. Now that the lake is 56 percent full after all the recent rain we’ve received, the view is even better!

Here are a few more obvious perks to living on or near Lake Nacimiento:

  • You get to enjoy ample privacy. Homes around Lake Nacimiento aren’t as smashed together as most common neighborhoods and communities in the country. You typically get to enjoy more land, more space, and more privacy from your neighbors. This means less noise from people, traffic and other sources.
  • You can relax. Many Americans find it hard to relax, even at home. The to-do list is never-ending. However, when you live on or near Lake Nacimiento, living in this tranquil setting helps you to relax. Start your morning on the back porch, watching the sunrise. Or end your day with a sunset stroll. When your body aches, take a dip in the water.
  • You’ve got endless entertainment options. You barely have to walk outside of your home to find an endless list of entertainment options waiting for you. Go swimming, boating, fishing, or get courageous with popular watersports that take place on the lake. You could also unplug and go camping, even if it’s in your own backyard!
  • You can live a healthy lifestyle. If you have a goal to be healthier this year, it’s easy to accomplish this goal with lake living. Because of all the entertainment and activities at your doorstep, it’s easy to be more active than you might otherwise be. Plus, if you’re more relaxed, you’ll feel healthier, too.
  • You’ve got a community behind you. You can enjoy privacy inside your home, but within the community you live in, you can make friends and find a great support system! The communities I work in often host community events to help everyone get to know one another.

When you are ready to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, contact me! As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am dedicated to helping Central Coast homebuyers find the home of their dreams on our beautiful, tranquil lake. Contact me for relocation assistance, with any questions you have, or to get started on the home-buying process!

BlendFest on the Coast

BlendFest on the Coast this weekend

If you love blended wines, you’ll love BlendFest on the Coast, which is the only wine festival dedicated to blended wines. It encompasses Paso Robles wines and takes place at the Cambria Pines Lodge in Cambria, CA along Highway 1. As your Central Coast real estate agent, allow me to fill you in on more of the details!

The sooner you buy your tickets, the better, as tickets for the Winemaker Dinner on Friday night have already sold out. However, there are still tickets for the BlendFest Grand Tasting on Saturday, which is the main event! Choose to attend from 1 to 3 p.m. or from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

At the Grand Tasting, you can enjoy 90 unique wines from 32 Paso Robles wineries in a beautiful setting. Tickets for the afternoon session cost $45 and include wine and cheese. Tickets for the sunset session cost $65 and include wine, cheese and an array of gourmet bites from The Pairing Knife.

Participating wineries include Adelaida Vineyards & Winery, Alta Colina Vineyard & Winery, Ancient Peaks Winery, August Ridge Vineyards, Caliza Winery, Cass Winery, Chateau Margene, Grey Wolf Cellars, Graveyard Vineyards, Halter Ranch Vineyards, Harmony Cellars, Hearst Ranch Winey and so many more. You can view the entire list on the BlendFest winery list.

On Sunday, you can enjoy a Blending Seminar & Lunch, beginning at 10 a.m. These will take place at Cavalier Oceanfront Resort in San Simeon, CA. First, you’ll blend Bordeaux varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Winemakers from the Paso Robles Cab Collective will help you out with this, and then will judge the blends. Winners will be awarded. Then, you can enjoy your blended wine creation while enjoying lunch from Higgies World BBQ!

Also on Sunday, you can enjoy Wine Art at 2:30 p.m. You will learn how to paint the Piedras Blancas Light Station, and while you paint, you can enjoy Paso wines and listen to a brief talk on the history of the Light Station. All supplies are included. Tickets cost $40.

If this sounds like a fun weekend to you, buy tickets soon, before any more of these events sell out! BlendFest on the Coast is just one of many winery events that take place on the Central Coast throughout the year. It is a great chance to get to know the different wines available in Paso Robles Wine Country, especially if you’re new to the area! It’s also a great way to meet other wine enthusiasts who live in the area.

Declutter Your Central Coast Home in One Month

Central Coast Real Estate

Decluttering tips for Central Coast homeowners

If you plan to sell your Central Coast home this year, it is essential that you begin decluttering now. Once you do, it’ll be much easier to clean, organize and stage your home to sell. Plus, studies show that decluttering your living space can lead to a happier, healthier life!

As your Central Coast real estate agent, allow me to fill you in on how you can clean out the clutter of your entire home in only one month’s time. Southern Living shared a day-by-day schedule to help you plan and organize. Here’s a summarized version of their steps.

Week One

  • Fill at least one trash bag with junk from anywhere in the house. If you end up filling more than one, great! Choose to toss, recycle or donate, depending on what’s in the bag.
  • Find 5-7 things that don’t have a designated place, and find one for them.
  • Pick any surface counter in the home and clean off all of the clutter.
  • Decide which ‘hot spots’ in your home need the most decluttering work, and then write down deadlines for each one.

Week Two

  • Conquer the bedrooms. Take everything out of drawers and under the bed, getting rid of anything you haven’t used, read, worn, etc. in the past year. Have a bin for anything you want to keep but not in the bedrooms.
  • Now focus on bedroom surfaces. Limit yourself to only five things displayed on each surface.
  • Conquer the closets. Start at the bottom and work your way up. Find a place for everything.
  • Conquer the kitchen. Tackle the Tupperware cabinet, and toss anything that doesn’t have a matching lid or bottom. Remove appliances you never use, and pots and pans that collect dust.
  • Go through your refrigerator and pantry and get rid of any expired food and spices or condiments you never use. Donate cookbooks you never read.

Week Three

  • Conquer the home office. Start with stacked papers, then declutter the rest of your desk surface, and then empty out your drawers.
  • Conquer the bathrooms. Do all of them together, so you realize how much soap, shampoo, lotion, etc. you have stored up. Clean out drawers, cabinets and surface areas, and find a place for everything you keep.
  • Conquer the living room. Put back items that have wandered from their homes, find homes for items that don’t have one, remove anything you have too much of and store smart.

Week Four

  • Conquer the laundry room.
  • Conquer the basement, attic and garage.
  • Sort through mail and unsubscribe to anything you never look at.

The rules are straightforward for each room. Get rid of anything you don’t use. Find a designated place for everything else. Keep everything in its designated places in an organized way.

For more detailed tips, check out the Southern Living Guide. When you are ready to sell your Central Coast home, contact me! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I am here and ready to help you conquer the home-selling process this year.
