Coastal Premier Properties is pleased to welcome Stephanie Long! Stephanie will be working out of our 4S Ranch office.

Welcome Steph

Bio:

I’ve had the privilege of moving around and meeting new people from a young age.  I’ve lived all over the southern and northwestern states.  I finally married the love of my life and settled in beautiful San Diego, my most favorite place on Earth.  I have lived in San Diego for over 15 years and call this breathtaking place, home.

My husband and I instilled in our daughters an appreciation of family, community and nature.  We’ve also taught them that they can achieve any goal through hard work & determination. I want my daughters to be strong and know the importance of compassion.  Together my husband & I provide a quality family life.  This love & guidance has shaped my believe structure to set goals, work hard, be fair, honest, give back to the community, and live life to the fullest.

I am passionate about providing professional client satisfaction & have a desire to serve my clients best interests. “To give real service, you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” – Douglas Adams

I’m excited for this opportunity to be a REALTOR® working with Coastal Premier Properties.

Importance of a Home Inspection

banner-1

As a buyer, you are entitled to know exactly what you are getting. Don’t take anything for granted, not even what you see or what the seller or listing agent tell you. A professional home inspection is something you MUST do, whether you are buying an existing home or a new one. deal-breakers-home-inspection-1 An inspection is an opportunity to have an expert look closely at the property you are considering purchasing and getting both an oral and written opinion as to its condition.

Beforehand, make sure the report will be done by a professional organization, such as a local trade organization or a national trade organization such as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspection). Not only should you never skip an inspection, but also you should be present with the inspector during the inspection. This gives you a chance to ask questions about the property and get answers that are not biased. In addition, the oral comments are typically more revealing and detailed than what you will find on the written report. Once the inspection is complete, review the inspection report carefully.

Image result for home inspectionYou have to demand an inspection when you present your offer. It must be written in as a contingency. If you do not approve the inspection report, then do not buy the home. Most real estate contracts automatically provide an inspection contingency.

Restaurant of the Moment: Eureka!

San Diego, CA 92122

Image result for eureka restaurant

If you’re looking for that classic American meal of burgers and fries with a higher level of quality and atmosphere, Eureka! is perfect for you!

The atmosphere of the restaurant is ambient and dimly lit, with soft house music playing in the background giving the setting a more relaxing and luxurious vibe. The menu consists of mainly gourmet burgers and other Americanized finger foods such as hot wings, quesadillas, and fries. But all cooked and prepared at a higher standard than your average diner or fast-food chain. Although the prices might be slighter higher than other burger joints, you can easily recognize the quality of the ingredients and freshness of the meal. The burgers can range from classic American burgers to special meats such as bison burgers, turkey burgers, and even vegetarian burgers. They also offer a range of sides including fries (regular, garlic or cajun), onion rings, and even mac and cheese slaw.  Eureka! is a great restaurant for date night, an outing with friends, a business lunch, or family gatherings!

 

Recipe: Salted-Butter Apple Galette with Maple Whipped Cream

salted-butter-apple-galette-with-maple-whipped-cream1

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup (½ stick) salted butter
  • ½ vanilla bean, split lengthwise
  • All-purpose flour (for dusting)
  • 1 pound baking apples (such as Pink Lady; about 2 large), scrubbed, sliced ⅛” thick
  • 3 tablespoons dark muscovado or dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

Directions

  1. Place a rack in middle of oven and preheat to 375°. Place butter in a small saucepan and scrape in vanilla seeds; add pod. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until butter foams, then browns (be careful not to burn), 5–8 minutes. Remove pan from heat and remove pod.

  2. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface into a rough 14×10” rectangle about ⅛” thick (alternatively, roll out into a 12” round). Transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Arrange apples on top, overlapping and leaving a 1½” border. Brush apples with brown butter and sprinkle with muscovado sugar. Lift edges of dough over apples, tucking and overlapping as needed to keep rectangular shape.

  3. Beat egg with 1 tsp. water in a small bowl and brush crust with egg wash. Sprinkle with granulated sugar and bake, rotating once, until apples are soft and juicy and crust is golden brown, 40–50 minutes. Let cool slightly on baking sheet before slicing.

  4. Beat cream in a medium bowl to medium-soft peaks. Fold in maple syrup and serve alongside galette.

    DO AHEAD: Galette can be baked 2 days ahead. Store tightly wrapped at room temperature. Reheat slightly before serving.

Design Trends: Granite Composite Sinks

Granite composite sinks are incredibly durable and stain resistant while also providing a sleek and modern environment to any kitchen.  If you’re considering a granite composite sink, they are heavier than stainless steel sinks, so you may want to consider adding structural support to accommodate for the extra weight. Take a look below at a few granite composite sinks for inspiration!

Black granite composite sink with Kohler Oil Rubbed Bronze faucet and drain...so dreamy

The MR Direct TruGranite sink comes in many different shades, all of which have the same exciting features; not the least of which is its TruGranite composition. A balance of 80% quartzite and 20% acrylic, makes for a very dense, nearly impervious substance with a smooth non-porous finish that provides the sink with anti-bacterial properties. It is nearly impossible to scratch or stain because of its density, and it can withstand extreme temperatures - a dropped knife will not scratch, acidic...
