If you’re class president, then get ready to plan the reunions.

You may know Camille Bruno as a member of the PSAR Grievance Committee. The Committee reviews complaints against members to determine if the complaint warrants arbitration or a grievance hearing. The Committee can dismiss the complaint or move it forward for a hearing.
“It’s an important Committee for our Association,” said Camille. “When a complaint is received, we ask a lot of questions about the alleged violation to determine if a hearing is warranted.”
But, did you know that Camille is an original resident of Chula Vista’s Eastlake community and has lived in all three Eastlake homeowner associations?
“EastLake is a wonderful area for families,” said Camille, a San Diego native who has lived in Eastlake area since 1987. “We raised our own family here. All three of our children, Bianca, Dominic and Bella, have attended Eastlake schools. I know the area very well.”
Camille grew up in San Diego. She graduated from Madison High School in Clairemont (class of 1981). Camille, known then as Camille Beach, served as class president for all four years in high school (9th to 12th grade). “I ran for reelection three times and won, that sums-up my career in politics,” said Camille. “As class president, now I was stuck planning the past three class reunions, the 10-year, 20-year and 30-year reunions.”
Prior to the start of her real estate sales career, Camille worked for 10 years with Campbell Soup Co. as the San Diego representative serving all local major grocery stores. She started selling real estate in January 2000.
Camille previously was on the PSAR board of directors for six years during the mid-2000s, serving both as secretary and treasurer. “It was a stressful time for our Association,” she said. “At the time, there was a lot of drama with a lot of dramatic people on the board. But, now, I’m impressed with how smooth the Association is operating.”
In January, Camille and her husband Tony celebrated their 27-year wedding anniversary. Tony works as an information technology consultant. “People think I’m Italian, but I’m not,” said Camille. “My husband is Italian and I cook Italian, but I’m Irish.”
Camille is very proud of her three grown children. Bianca is a reporter with Courthouse News Service in San Diego. She has appeared on the “KPBS Roundtable” show discussing the Donald Trump University story. Dominic works in banking in Newport Beach. Bella is in her third year at San Diego State University.
“My kids have grown up in real estate,” said Camille. “Years ago, I handled a lot of REO properties and I told my kids to never use your house as an ATM machine. They didn’t know what I was saying back then. But, when Dominic got his job with First Republic Bank, he said to me, `Now I understand what you told us about never use your house as an ATM machine.’”
Camille enjoys her real estate career and her involvement with PSAR. “It’s a demanding job and it takes a lot of patience and understanding,” said Camille. “But, PSAR helps us make the job easier. The staff is very helpful and supportive of the members.”
