About your REALTOR®, Lee Schoenbart
Since moving from Philadelphia in 1973, I've pretty much been a life-long Californian (40+ years). I moved to West Hollywood before it was a city, then to Laguna Beach, La Jolla and San Diego. There were various stints living in the Bay Area preceding and following my brother's death on Thanksgiving Day 1995.
A writer, editor and publicist all my adult life, I left my assistant metro and community news editorships at The San Diego Union-Tribune to pursue my "dream career" in real estate in 2005.
When my partner and I purchased our home in 2000, I remembered that I wanted excellent service and consideration with an astute eye for detail… and that's what you'll get from me, whether you are buying or selling a home.
Here's what some of my real estate clients have said about our working together:
"It was a pleasure to work with Lee, he brought a thoughtful, intelligent energy to the process." - Terry A. and Rachelle A.
"I want to thank you for the outstanding professionalism you exhibited in handling the sale of our aunt's house." - Jim. K.
"I am writing to acknowledge the excellent service my family received in two separate, but concurrent, transactions - both expertly handled by Lee." - Robert E.
"We found Lee to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only client. We never felt neglected or unimportant." - Alfred L. and Kurt K.
Before coming to Prudential California Realty (re-branded as Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties), I worked as the managing editor for numerous business and entertainment industry publications including the monthly Comstock's: The Business of California's Capital Region and the quarterly Comstock's: The Business of Northern Nevada, as well as San Diego's North County Entertainer and Del Mar Times. I was also the publisher of a series of entertainment publications in the Bay Area: San Francisco Hot Ticket!, Guide Magazine San Francisco and San Francisco Style Monthly.
The last time I returned from the Bay Area in 1999, I became managing editor of content for Solution Media's Internet music company SpinRecords.com followed by the Del Mar Times editorship and a season as the Del Mar Fair's nighttime media information officer.
Under my former nom de plume, "Jeff Wilson," I created a market niche for my self-syndicated column, Hot Wax Music Report, covering industry trends and authoring exclusive celebrity interviews from 1976-1996. During this time, I worked on a number of publicity-related projects with Motown, Megatone and Moby Dick Records, and was a member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Science (NARAS), producers of the annual Grammy Awardsä program.
I also contributed to the national best-sellers "Dreamgirl: My Life As A Supreme" by Mary Wilson, and J. Randy Taraborrelli's unauthorized biographies of Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, respectively, "Call Her Miss Ross" and "Michael Jackson: The Magic and the Madness."
My pledge is to bring that same energy, integrity and attention to detail of 30-plus years in the publishing and entertainment industries to your real estate needs. Through Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, and all of the resources we have at our disposal, I will apply my knowledge and expertise to help you.
I know that referrals from you, your family and friends are the sincerest form of flattery, and I would appreciate it if you shared my name and number with anyone who might benefit from my services as their REALTOR®.
