She was a member of the Chula Vista Dolphinettes

You may know PSAR REALTOR® member Yvonne Cromer as one of the newest members of PSAR’s board of directors beginning in 2018. In last month’s election, PSAR members selected the 2018 PSAR Board of Directors, including Yvonne, to serve during the 2018 calendar year beginning Jan 1, 2018. It will be her first time to serve on the PSAR board. Yvonne also was involved with the South County Charity Committee in organizing PSAR’s recent inaugural PSAR REALTOR® Games.
 
But did you know that Yvonne was a synchronized swimmer from ages 6 to 16? The Chula Vista native was a member of the Chula Vista's Dolphinettes, a competitive swim club that ended operations several years ago. At one time, the Dolphinettes were San Diego’s oldest swim program. They were prominent in the 1940s after Esther Williams, the sequined star of the seas, enthusiastically swam her way through water ballet sequences in memorable movies such as “Neptune's Daughter,” and “Million Dollar Mermaid.” Decades later, synchronized swimming premiered at the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles.
 
Yvonne attended an elementary school Southwestern Satellite that held classes at Southwestern College. Her father is a retired Chula Vista police officer. Yvonne attended swim practices at the Loma Verde Aquatic Center on Loma Lane and the Parkway Aquatic Center on Park Way, both still operated by the City of Chula Vista. “We would practice from 5 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and up to six hours on Saturdays,” Yvonne said. “It required a lot of dedication and our team did well at the competitions.”
 
While attending Hilltop High School, Yvonne was a member of the swim team and competed in backstroke and relay races. She also worked as a lifeguard at the Handlery Swim and Tennis Club that was part of the Handlery Hotel San Diego in Mission Valley. She also taught swimming at The Diving Locker in Pacific Beach.
 
After graduating from Hilltop (class of 1991), Yvonne attended the University of Utah. During Christmas break, she met her future husband Robert at a Christmas party held at a local hotel. “In order to impress me, Robert stole a three-foot-high reindeer decoration from the hotel lobby,” said Yvonne. “I guess he wanted to make some points. The reindeer later ended up in a friend’s front yard.”
 
Yvonne and Robert were married in 1997. On Aug. 9, they will celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. They celebrated their first wedding anniversary and closed escrow on their first home while Robert was riding on a roller coaster riding marathon contest sponsored by a radio station (their REALTOR® at the time was PSAR member Pat Russiano).
 
For the first five years of their marriage, Yvonne was a stay at home mom. Then she got her real estate license and became a loan officer. She joined Robert in real estate sales in 2004. “His business was growing and he needed help,” said Yvonne. “We’ve been working together ever since.” They recently joined Coldwell Banker West.
 
While working with a previous real estate company, Yvonne directed an agent educational training program known as “McMillin U.” The program helped new licensees get a foothold in the business.
 
“I felt like I was the 'Mom' to all of these agents,” said Yvonne. “It was a source of pride knowing I was helping to shape their development and see all of my students find success.” Yvonne led the twice-weekly sessions and was available 24/7 for one-on-one questions and coaching opportunities.
 
Yvonne’s course covered such topics as intro to the business, learning the lingo, expectations as a professional, contracts, risk management and how to market one’s agent business. It was essentially a crash course in owning a small business and how to jump start on a career in real estate. “I helped them figure out what they were comfortable with and how we could explore that to develop their business,” said Yvonne. “The goal was to tap into their strengths so they could flourish in this industry.”
 
Yvonne and Robert, who reside in Eastlake, are raising two girls. Haley, 19, is attending the University of California Davis. She is majoring in Spanish and global studies. Her goal is to become a professor at a prestigious college and teach the language and culture that is true to her heart. Haley is on pace to finish her undergraduate work in three years and graduate in June 2018.
 
Hannah, 16, is attending Olympian High School in Chula Vista. She plays club soccer for the Rebels at the Elite level. Her team recently won the National Cup and the California Regional League. The team is currently ranked 26th nationally and first in Southern California in the Girls Age 16-and-under division.
 
“Now that Hannah has her driver’s license, I will have a more time to devote to PSAR and I’m looking forward to joining the board,” Yvonne said. “PSAR is an outstanding Association. The level of customer service provided by the staff is above and beyond. Our members are friendly, helpful and supportive. It will be an honor for me to serve.”

PSAR Executive Committee: Their backgrounds may surprise you.

posted Jul 14, 2017, 4:28 PM by Joyce Evans   [ updated Jul 14, 2017, 4:30 PM ]

In last month’s election, PSAR members selected the 2018 PSAR Board of Directors. These dedicated PSAR members will serve during the 2018 calendar year beginning Jan 1, 2018. Four REALTOR® members will serve as the Board’s Executive Committee. They include Jan Farley as 2018 president, Robert Calloway as president-elect, Sam Calvano as secretary-treasurer and Sarah Heck as immediate past president.
 
But did you know some little-known, interesting facts about the four Executive Committee members?
 
Jan Farley grew up in Escondido and graduated from Orange Glen High School at age 17 (class of 1972). After high school, she attended Palomar Community College. At age 19, she earned her real estate sales license. “My dad was a general contractor and a REALTOR®, and he insisted on me and my three brothers getting our real estate license,” said Jan. Jan’s father, Jack Mahan, built hundreds of custom and tract homes in the North County during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. In 1984, Jan and her husband Bruce moved to San Francisco and opened a mortgage brokerage they ran until 1998. “I loved living in the wine country, in Sausalito and Sonoma,” said Jan. “For four years, we lived next to a Ravenswood Winery and became wine connoisseurs. Red Zinfandel is my favorite.” In 1998, they returned to San Diego and lived in Jamul. Jan has opened several real estate offices before launching founding her current company, San Terra Properties, in March 2014. “I’ve helped train several of my grandchildren with their real estate careers,” said Jan.
 
Robert Calloway was the first president of the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals (VAREP), San Diego chapter. He founded the chapter in July 2013. He served for 26 years in the U.S. Navy, from June 1985 to June 2011, retiring as a Senior Chief Navy Counselor. The native of Atlanta joined the Navy at age 19. “Growing up, I spent a lot of time on my grandfather’s farm outside of Atlanta,” said Robert. “I remember assisting him with slaughtering of a hog at age 6. That was a frightening experience.” His Naval career included 13 deployments on six different ships. One of his most memorable experiences was watching his ship sink an abandoned Italian destroyer. “We towed his ship to an area near the international boundary with Libya,” recalled Robert. “Our purpose was to show our military might to Muammar Gadaffi. It was very exciting to watch the ship blow up. Muammar stayed pretty quiet after that.”
 
Sam Calvano’s success over the past three decades in the lending field is legendary. In 1987, he was Home Savings’ top lending officer in the nation among more than 400 loan officers in the U.S. That year, he closed a record 486 transactions representing $77 million. He remained number one in San Diego County for seven years, from 1987 until he left Home Savings in 1993. He worked with American Savings and Washington Mutual before founding his own company, Sam Calvano Home Loans, in 2000. But, in the early 1980s, when real estate was slow, Sam worked as a bartender at a popular nightclub on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. He poured drinks for politicians, movie stars, recording artists, corporate moguls and baseball players. “This place was the hottest joint on the strip,” said Sam. “The bar was always filled, sometimes four or five people deep. The small parking lot was jammed, end-to-end with expensive cars. The head valet was amazing for his ability to park Ferraris so close together, and then maneuver one of them out of the lot at 2 o’clock in the morning.”
 
Sarah Heck has successfully negotiated more than 800 short-sale transactions in her career. Her knowledge was helpful when she consulted with state senators and provided statistical data which was instrumental in helping pass SB 458, a new law that stopped lenders from being able to pursue a deficiency balance after a short sale. Sarah grew up in a small town in Northern California called Grass Valley. “We were always outside playing, climbing trees, riding bikes, and exploring,” said Sarah. “We weren’t afraid of anything.  We would cliff dive at the Yuba River, white water raft down the American River and spend the summers hiking through the Tahoe National Forrest.” When she was a young teenager, Sarah and her family spent nearly two years traveling throughout New Zealand, Australia, and Europe. “We were creating new memories and sharing new adventures,” said Sarah. “I learned more traveling than I could have ever learned from a text book.” At just 17 years old, Sarah moved from Northern California to San Diego to attend San Diego State University, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in communications.
 
To Jan, Robert, Sam, and Sarah, we are grateful for your service to PSAR. No duty is more urgent than that of returning thanks. Your selfless dedication to PSAR and our industry is an inspiration to us all. We are extremely thankful and fortunate to have you as part of the 2018 leadership team. It’s only with your example of leadership and commitment can we rise to meet the challenges in our profession. We recognize your extraordinary sacrifices that expand both promise and possibility. We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for all that you do.

San Diego is 10th Hottest Housing Market!

posted Jul 7, 2017, 4:28 PM by Joyce Evans   [ updated Jul 7, 2017, 4:34 PM ]

The local real estate market remains one of the 10 hottest markets in the nation, although there appears to be no end in sight for the inventory shortage, according to reports from various industry sources. The market will likely remain very challenging for would-be buyers throughout the summer.
 
According to www.Realtor.com, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) official website, San Diego was the 10th “hottest” real estate market in June with the typical home taking just 37 days to sell. San Diego was one of the five California markets on the list. The Vallejo-Fairfield area in northern California led the list. Nationally there were 11 percent fewer homes on the market in June than during the same month last year, marking 24 consecutive months of year-over-year inventory declines, according to NAR. Nationwide, a typical home was on the market 60 days. In 80 percent of markets there are fewer homes for sale currently than this time last year, NAR said.
 
Meanwhile, the San Diego County median home price hit $530,000 in May, according to real estate tracker CoreLogic. The new higher number represents an 8.2 percent increase in a year. For all of Southern California, the median home price in May was up 7.1 percent year-over-year, bringing the median to $492,000. The largest increase was in San Bernardino County, at 8.8 percent, to a median price of $310,000. It was followed by San Diego County with the 8.2 percent increase; Riverside County with a 7.9 percent increase for a median of $356,000; Ventura County with a 7.1 percent increase for a median of $553,750; Los Angeles County with a 6.8 percent increase for a median of $560,500; and Orange County with a 6.7 percent increase for a median of $695,000.
 
High demand from home buyers and a limited supply of homes for sale are the main ingredients in the recipe for rising home prices, according to Zillow. Three factors are driving demand, including millennials are aging into home ownership, the labor market is booming and wages are growing.from home buyers and a limited supply of homes for sale are the main ingredients in the recipe for rising home prices, according to Zillow. Three factors are driving demand, including millennials are aging into home ownership, the labor market is booming and wages are growing.
 
Indeed, some economists are wondering about a possible housing bubble since home prices are rising faster than inflation. Since demand is exceeding supply and financing is available, there seems to be nothing right now to prevent prices from continuing their upward trend.
 
According to the latest Market Pulse Survey from the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.), market conditions remained positive, but some REALTOR® expectations are beginning to decline. While fewer properties sold above asking price, the market remained competitive as multiple offers inched up in May from April.
 
C.A.R. said the share of homes selling above asking price was down from 38 percent a year ago to 35 percent in May 2017, while the share of properties selling below asking price was unchanged at 34 percent. The remaining 31 percent sold at asking price, up from 27 percent in May 2016.
 
Also, C.A.R. said 70 percent of properties sold in May received multiple offers, up from 68 percent in May 2016. The share of properties receiving three or more offers in May was 44 percent, compared to 46 percent a year ago.
 
C.A.R. also said a lack of available inventory continued to be at the top of the list of concerns for REALTORS®, with 41 percent indicating it as their biggest concern. Declining housing affordability and high interest rates concerned 23 percent of REALTORS®, while inflated home prices-housing bubble was cited by 21 percent of REALTORS®. The economy, lending and financing, and policy and regulations rounded out REALTORS®’ remaining biggest concerns.high interest rates concerned 23 percent of REALTORS®, while inflated home prices-housing bubble was cited by 21 percent of REALTORS®. The economy, lending and financing, and policy and regulations rounded out REALTORS®’ remaining biggest concerns.
 
Finally, some analysts believe the economy is growing due to improved local labor conditions, rising prices of local stocks and stronger measures of U.S. consumer confidence due to President Trump’s business-friendly policies. Survey company Gallup said consumer spending in the U.S. rose was $103 a day in June, the best performance for the month since 2008. The daily spending in May was $104. Gallup said Americans' reported daily spending has averaged $100 or more since February -- the longest stretch of triple-digit spending averages since 2008. Spending in July is likely to hold at its current level, because in most years over the past decade, Gallup has recorded figures for July that were within $3 of June's average. The June results were based on more than 15,000 interviews conducted as part of Gallup daily tracking throughout the month. Gallup asks Americans each night to report how much they spent the previous day, excluding spending on normal household bills and major purchases, such as a home or car. The measure gives an indication of discretionary spending.

REALTOR® Games: competition and fun for a good cause.

posted Jun 30, 2017, 3:19 PM by Joyce Evans   [ updated Jun 30, 2017, 3:21 PM ]

The first-ever PSAR REALTOR® Games, organized by PSAR’s South County Charity Committee, was a roaring success. About 200 people attended the inaugural event held June 23 at Scobee Park, 2390 Boswell Road in Chula Vista’s EastLake community. Charity Committee members said that about $7,500 was raised for three charities, including Unity 4 Orphans, South Bay Community Services and HomeAid San Diego.Services and HomeAid San Diego.
 
The REALTOR® Games featured teams of PSAR members competing in mental and physical challenges. The competition included such agility activities as sack race, free-throw contest, balloon catch and cornhole, as well as mental games, including spelling bee, board puzzle and Realtor Feud, a game resembling TV’s “Family Feud.” Another competition consisted of “Jenga,” a game of skill featuring players taking turns removing one wooden block at a time from a tower constructed of several dozen blocks (the name Jenga is derived from a Swahili word meaning “build”). Entry fee was $250 per team. Contestants received a 2017 Realtor Games event t-shirt featuring sponsor names. About 50 spectators supported the event with a donation of $20 per person, which earned them a taco plate, beverage and raffle ticket.
 
Robert Cromer, 2016 Charity Committee chair, served as the event’s lead organizer. “My favorite memory was arriving at 7 a.m. with Tony Santiago, and as we both were setting up, I said, `I'm excited, this is going to be good,’” said Robert. “There was so much time, creativity and attention to detail put into this event by the Charity Committee. It was a wonderful feeling to know it was all going to come to fruition and that we were going to raise a substantial amount of money for three extraordinary charities and indirectly touch the lives of their recipients through our donations.”
 
“I was happy to be a part of it,” said Santiago. “It was a fun and memorable day. I was pleased that all the feedback from the players, sponsors and spectators were all positive. I can't wait till next year.”

Kim Peterson, 2017 Charity Committee co-chair, said, “My favorite memory was the teamwork. The teams had so much fun working together competing against the other teams. There was a lot of participation and great sponsorships. This year was a great kick off. It will only grow bigger and better in the coming years. I believe this will be an event that you will not want to miss!” 
 
Angie West, 2017 Charity Committee co-chair, said, “The Realtor Games was such a great event. It built up such camaraderie and brought out such fun competition amongst the teams. I laughed all day watching the fun among the teams as they tried to beat each other. All in all, it was a great fun day that supported such a worthy cause. I’m looking forward to doing it again next year.”
 
Rhonda Beathard said, “It was a successful undertaking by any measure. The REALTOR® Games had all the essentials elements, including great causes, fantastic participation, fun games and a beautiful national anthem by Amy Scruggs. I can’t wait for next year.”
 
“If you weren't there you missed out on a great event,” said Jan Wilcox. “I had a fun time participating. The turnout was great, everyone who participated had wonderful team spirit and ultimately a good time was had by all. Thank you again to Robert Cromer and all the work he put into making this event so much fun. I know next year we will have more teams wanting to participate and keep the momentum going.”  
 
“My favorite memory, other than the fun time we all experienced, was that the last team I encouraged to join from our office, Coldwell Banker West, and they won the grand final,” said Merrie Espina. “The event was a huge success. Team players and volunteers did a wonderful job to support community charities. Our hard work and willingness to help made a difference. PSAR does a lot of things to raise funds to give back to the community and all members should participate as a chance to network with other people in the industry as well. As a volunteer, you provide a valuable community service, build teamwork and camaraderie. It is also a chance to be knowledgeable of resources that are helpful in our career.”
 
The South County Charity Committee consists of a wonderful group of caring PSAR members who are willing to share PSAR resources and talent within the community through outreach and service. Their goal is to provide the necessary support to make a positive charitable impact within the communities served by PSAR members. The volunteers serving on the PSAR Charity Committee evaluate and review requests from nonprofits in the community. Then, they select worthy charitable causes to support.
 
In addition to the REALTOR® Games, the South County Charity Committee organizes PSAR’s annual “Zombie 5k Run-Walk” held in October at Rohr Park in Bonita. Participants wear costumes at the fundraiser that last year benefited AJ’s Kids’ annual holiday toy drive for Rady Children’s Hospital (organized by radio personality A.J. Machado of KEGY-FM Energy 103.7) and South Bay Community Services’ transitional housing program for former foster youth and homeless youth while they finish school or complete job training.  Also, the Charity Committee organizes PSAR’s annual “Casino Night at Viejas,” a bus trip to Viejas Casino in Alpine that includes raffle tickets and discounts on the dinner buffet at the casino and Viejas Outlet Center stores.

Tech Helpline News - 10 Things You Probably Didn't Know Google Could Do For You

10 Things You Probably Didn't Know Google Could Do for You

 

It’s not often that a company provides a service so popular that it becomes a verb, but you probably have heard the phrase “Just Google it” many times. Doing a search using Google has become part of most people’s daily routine: 4.4 billion worldwide searches every single day.

 

But did you know that Google is much more than just a search engine? It is also a highly complex math calculator, a real-time currency converter, a sophisticated multi-lingual translator, a digital dictation machine and more. In fact, Google has so many hidden talents built into its search bar, these five may be only scratching the surface of what Google search can do for you effective. 

Here are 5 things that you can do with Google search shortcuts that you may not know about, but may save you an enormous amount of time. 

Image search with an image 
We all know how powerful Google is for searching images, but did you know you can give Google an image and it can search for the same or similar images? When you click on the image search option in Google, you will notice a small camera icon will appear. Click on the camera icon and Google will ask for a URL to the image you want to find like images, or it will let you upload an image from your computer to find similar images. The origin of the images found and other details also will be provided.

Step 1:




Step 2:




Math machine
Google knows math. You can do basic arithmetic right inside the search bar, including adding, subtracting, dividing or multiplying: such as “2 * 3 * 7.” But you can also do exponential equations, such as entering  “4^10” or “4**10”, and percentages, such as “15% of 93.45.” Now here's the scary part: you can also do Advance Math in the search bar if you know the shortcuts, including Trigonometry. You can find out more here. Or if you want to see a quick online calculator, then just search on Google.com “Google Calculator.” 

Convert currency
Google knows money. How many Euros for 1 US dollar? Write “1 USD to Euro” and Google gives you the day’s rate of .89. “2 CAD to USD,” and you just converted 2 Canadian dollars to US at 1.48. “2 CAD to Pesos,” and you learn the 2 Canadian dollars equals 27.63 Mexican Pesos. Google tracks and can help you convert over 180 different currencies.

Translation tool
Google knows more than 100 languages. If you enter “translate help to Spanish” in the search bar, the Google translator appears, as does the Spanish word “ayuda.” The versatility and power of the Google translator is nearly breathtaking, considering it’s free. There’s even an app for that: Google Translate is available for Android and iOS and the app version can even translate 37 languages via a photo. Take a picture of the sign that says “Alto” and the app shows “Stop.”

Convert measurements and units 
Google loves to help you convert things: Miles to kilometers, days to seconds, watts to amps, liters to gallons, bits to bytes, dozens to gross, and acres to square feet. All you have to do is simply write the brief calculation you are trying to figure out in the search bar and Google will do the heavy lifting. For example, write “0.5 acres to sq ft” and Google will bring up its Area Calculator and display the answer as 21,780 square feet.

5 Quick Tips: instant timer, track a flight, get a stock quote, check the weather or movie times 
Google is quick and flexible. If you need to time something – say, how long you it takes you to input a new listing on the MLS, just for fun: enter the word “timer” and a 5-minute countdown timer will appear. Or click on the tab at the top and you have the stopwatch option. Picking a client up at the airport? Check the flight just using the abbreviation of the airlines and the flight number: AA 1024 – gives you the status of American Airlines Los Angeles to Miami. How is your company’s stock doing? Just type “quote: RMAX” or whatever your firm’s stock symbols are for its most recent price. What’s the weather like for your Open House today? Just type “weather Orlando” or “weather,” and the zip code and your latest report appears. What movie is playing next at your local theaters to send your sellers to and get them out of the house for a showing? Type “showtimes,” and your zip code or city name and a list of current films with showtimes and at which theater instantly comes up. 
 


Google has a galaxy of search shortcuts, tips and tricks and it just keeps getting more and more powerful all the time. It’s become so easy to look something up, that scientists have already demonstrated that the Internet is changing what we remember: we are more likely to recall where the facts are – because we can easily Google them – as opposed to recalling the facts themselves. You know how I know this?  I Google’d it. 

If you have a favorite Google search shortcut, tip or trick you’d like us to share with readers in the future, send it to us via Facebook message.
