We met Felicia and Stacy through a friend and are so glad we did. Selling our parents' one-bedroom condo was an emotional decision. Felicia and Stacy were consistently professional, pleasant to work with and sensitive to our position, helping us move forward even when it was tough. Their instincts about the market were spot-on, requiring almost no staging and setting an aggressive price. In the end, the condo sold the first day it was on the market with a full priced, all-cash offer. Felicia and Stacy know the Coronado Shores better than anyone and we highly recommend them.

Our plan-retire in Coronado. We also had a challenge. Sell our house in Utah, sell our one bedroom in Coronado and find a two bedroom in the Shores for our last move. The house sold in one day over price. We were in Coronado to look for the perfect place. Joe called Coronado Shores and we met Felicia Bell and Stacy Begin. They found a lovely condo with a few problems in La Princesa for us. With Felicia and Stacy's professionalism, creative negotiations, and determination to work out the hurtles toward a sale, they made it "work for us". And we are so grateful it did.
Thanks Felicia and Stacy for your example of mastery.

We came across Felicia and Stacy as we were looking to buy our beach home in Coronado. Our interactions with them have been top notch, from showing us the properties during the times that worked best for us, to being a great partner team during the purchase negotiations as well as helping us to successfully navigate a competitive market. They are thorough, very responsive and they know their market extremely well. If you want the best home and deal, the choice for us became clear to hire the best in Coronado.

We were faced with a property sale that included the complexities and critical timing of a 1031 exchange, our friends recalled that we had once mentioned interest in having place in Coronado. The lifestyle and ambience of the island so suits our recreational interests, so we considered buying if a suitable property became available. The Shore Life Luxury Team of Felicia & Stacy came so highly recommended by close friends and, believe me, there was no exaggeration when I say we immediately felt very comfortable, confident and connected with Felicia & Stacy from the moment we met. Their utmost integrity, astute counsel and strong, experienced and professional work ethic shone through as they handled every aspect of our sale.......from finding a property, reviewing and approving all inspections, working with the seller on cost for repairs on inspection items and coordinating with our 1031 exchange. From excellent and timely communication and prompt attention to every aspect and detail, we are proof that clients can love the process. Many thanks for finding us the perfect property. We will definitely be singing your praises and recommending you to friends and family at every opportunity.

Felicia Bell and her daughter and partner, Stacy Bell Begin, are truly the best! Don worked with Felicia on the Coronado Shores Landscape Committee for over 15 years and admired her enthusiasm, attention to details, independence of thinking, and love of Coronado Shores. When it came time for us to move from Coronado to a retirement community in Chula Vista, and to put our condo on the market, we did not hesitate for a moment in deciding who to contact to be our agent for this transaction. Felicia and Stacy did not let us down. They explained the process to us very thoroughly, advised us on what to expect, and guided us through the process smoothly and with confidence, and attended to all the details needed to prepare our condo for marketing. We felt that we were in good hands, just as we knew that we would be. The paperwork involved was far more extensive than we remembered facing when we bought our unit in 2001; not because of any inherent complexities, but simply because matters overall had simply gotten more legally and financially complex during the intervening years. Felicia and Stacy led us through the process so smoothly that we simply did what was needed and did not worry about anything. We knew it would work out well for us in the end, and it did. So, we recommend Felicia and Stacy in the highest possible way to anyone who has a property at Coronado Shores, or elsewhere in Coronado, that they wish to market.

We recently purchased a condo unit at the Shores as part of a 1031 exchange for an investment. We could not have been more pleased with the service we received from the Bell Team; they showed us every available unit that was currently on the market including a few that were about to hit the market. They also were able to show us all the units that had sold and had intimate knowledge of each sold and for sale unit to guide our offer and pricing. Felicia & Stacy listened to what we were searching for and we were able to quickly narrow down the list of available and soon to be on the market units and view our top 3 choices and found the absolutely perfect unit on that first tour. The Bell team gave us good counsel on the offer, secured that perfect unit for us, and managed every aspect of the transaction flawlessly including providing much-needed guidance and help along the way. We would not consider using anyone else for another real estate transaction in Coronado – The O’Brien’s – Portland, Oregon

We recently bought one condo at the Coronado Shores and sold another one, engaging Felicia and Stacy on both transactions. Both transactions occurred flawlessly. Their industry knowledge, as well as their knowledge of the local market, is incredible. This knowledge especially manifested itself in the sale of the one condo. We were selling it furnished, and their eye and taste in how to show it best as a furnished condo was nothing short of remarkable. As an indication of the depth of their knowledge of the local market, they had 2 legitimate buyers lined up even before it formally went on the market. We had a Purchase Agreement done in less than a week.
We used the Bell team on 2 other transactions at The Shores prior to the 2 mentioned above, and both of those went equally as flawlessly. There is no one else we will consider if we are buying or selling at The Shores in the future!

Felicia and Stacy very competently handled the sale of our condo at the Shores in August of this year. They guided us through the process of preparing the condo for the sale. We had several delicate issues come up during the negotiations but with their expert advice and counsel, we were able to quickly resolve them. The sale went through very smoothly and to our entire satisfaction. We had purchased this condo in 2007 through Felicia. She had also handled that particularly complicated transaction very smoothly and to our full satisfaction. We highly recommend Felicia and Stacy to help you if you are considering buying or selling any real estate in the San Diego Area.

Felicia and Stacy are the Dynamic Duo of the Coronado Shores, working with them was definitely a 10 out of 10. Highly recommended!

We purchased our home in the shores with the assistance of Felecia and Stacy. They are true professionals in every aspect of their work. They listened to our needs and concerns and were always attentive to them. They did not try and sell us something we didn’t want. They were attentive to all our questions and needs. They were always available when we needed them. We enjoyed working with them and becoming friends. They are meticulous in their work and their knowledge and business savvy is the best we’ve ever dealt with. It was a true pleasure working with them. We would give them 10 stars if we could.
