Raquel Fernandez | Coronado, CA Shores Realtor (coronadoshoresrealtor.com)
Raquel Fernandez has a diverse background which defines and complements her real estate career. She is reliable, dependable and committed to act in her clients’ best interest. She listens to fully understand her clients’ wants and needs, always putting their fundamental interests first. “I truly enjoy what I do. There is no greater joy than knowing that I can make people’s dreams come true, whether they are buying their dream vacation home on the beach, or their next property for their real estate portfolio.”
She was born and raised in Spain where she earned a computer programming degree and later worked in the sales and trading division of a local prominent bank. Shortly after her arrival in the US in 1996, she worked for Delta Airlines as a customer service manager for elite members and as a software field instructor.
“There were some moments where things went crazy and we feared everything was going to fall apart. But Raquel climbed into the mess and fought for us…keeping in contact with everyone involved (and even their supervisors when necessary) to keep things moving through the process. I’m certain that because of Raquel’s extraordinary efforts we finally closed on our new home. The new housing regulations have gotten very complicated and if you are buying or selling a house in this market you’ll need someone who won’t just sit back and hope everything will work out. You’ll need Raquel Fernandez.”
“Raquel is one in a million when it comes to being a people person and meeting her customer’s needs. She has helped a number of clients that I work with in settling into their first homes. She goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to taking care of the seller and the buyer (whichever side she happens to be on at the time.) I have dozens of friends and family members that are realtors, which in and of itself makes it harder to decide who to refer business to. What make it easiest for me is that Raquel is genuinely concerned with her clients best interest and not the bottom line dollar of what she will take away from it.”
“We were first time buyers and buying from out of state so we had tons of questions about the process and she did a great job of explaining everything and maintaining communication every step of the way. Raquel has so much knowledge and worked so hard for us we were shocked how smoothly the whole process went. She was on top of everything, there were no issues on our side at all. Seriously, Raquel is wonderful. We can not explain how impressed we are with Raquel’s services. If you are looking for knowledge, work ethic, communication, attention to detail, and all with a smile on top of that Raquel is where to find it.”
“To sum it all up, Raquel is knowledgeable, fast, efficient, detailed, kind, and genuinely wants buyers and sellers to have the home they need to buy or sell. Selling a home is typically a stressful process, but with Raquel, she does all the hard work for you to make selling a home as stress-free as possible. She did all the work for us, and that made selling our condo super easy. She went above and beyond! I would recommend Raquel to anyone.”
“She stays on top of everything. She will work hard for you to help you find or sell your home. She has so much wisdom with the market. She is so respectful to both the buyer and the seller. You will feel like you are working with a friend because she’s so caring but you will get nothing but professionalism.”
“The most outstanding thing Raquel did for me was to visit an open house on my behalf, video record it, and send it to me since I couldn’t be present. Because the rental market in SD is so competitive and properties don’t sit very long, she made a recommendation on my behalf to the property management company which ultimately led to my family getting the property we wanted. We’ll definitely utilize her services in the future!”
Raquel began her career in real estate in 2003 as a mortgage loan processor and supervisor at Optimus Lending, a company that she co-founded in Long Beach, Ca. She was a founding member and active participant of Las Palmas LLC, which completed a condo conversion project in downtown Long Beach, and also developed land in Big Bear. In 2006 Raquel was hired by IndyMac Bank as a Customer Account Executive managing high producing brokerages and bank partners.
“Working for IndyMac gave me an industry insight that is invaluable, as well as, the realization that the market is constantly changing and we must evolve with it. I adjust fast to the trends and stay connected to the community to ensure that my clients are well served.”
Raquel became a realtor after relocating to San Diego with her family in 2011 and she went on to becoming the South Bay real estate expert guest speaker for ESPN 1700 radio talk show, and KCBQ, The Real Estate Radio Network. She was the top agent in San Diego County in 2018 for list price accuracy and second for fastest sales.
“With 17 years of experience in real estate, I am dedicated and committed to providing a first class experience to every client I work with. I enjoy every aspect of my job and I take pride in knowing that I am a well-rounded Realtor.” In February of 2019 Raquel joined Coronado Shores Co. as the only Spanish Speaker real estate agent in the office.
Coronado Shores Co. is widely known on the island as the go-to real estate office. The firm broke ground and built the Coronado Shores project in 1970 which encompasses 1,467 luxurious beach-front condos; it was also the official real estate office that negotiated every sale. The firm now maintains great market share of the condo sales and it manages over 400 hundred vacation rental units, which is by far the property management company with the biggest market share of vacation homes in the Shores. Coronado Shores Co. realtors have deeply-rooted relationships with the owners, tenants and the community which in turn benefits all of their clients.
“I am honored to join a company with such legacy in Coronado and I am blessed to be surrounded by professionals in the industry which makes my team the one you want by your side when buying and selling real estate.”
