Bennion Deville Homes Carlsbad welcomes REALTOR Linda James
REALTOR Linda James joins the Carlsbad office of Bennion Deville Homes.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Linda James to the Carlsbad office, located at 300 Carlsbad Village Drive, Suite 217. Linda earned her real estate license in 2015 and enjoys working with clients throughout San Diego County, serving needs from North County San Diego down to the UTC area.

The daughter of a real estate professional, Linda first earned her real estate license in her 20s before moving into the financial sector. This early exposure to the industry, as well as the knowledge and skills gained working in the financial sector, make her an asset to her clients. “I help guide my clients down the right path by answering their questions related to the complete real estate transaction process, purchase or sale, and how it connects with their larger financial picture,” Linda says. “Real estate is a natural fit for me because it’s a segment of what I work on in financial planning and management. I believe in finding the client the right home that not only meets their needs, but also compliments their lifestyle.”

Working in the financial services industry has sharpened her knack for providing exceptional client service. It helps that people are drawn to Linda’s friendly, approachable demeanor. “You have to be able to quickly understand your client – and how you can help them achieve their goals. From there, you gauge the best roadmap, researching and providing the best information possible to allowing the  client to make an informed decision, they are able to weigh the options so they ultimately make the best choice for their situation,” Linda adds.

Linda is addicted to the euphoria of helping others through real estate. “It is so fulfilling to successfully complete a transaction. Beyond my role in guiding clients through that process, I enjoy helping them find answers to any other questions they may have. My goal is to be ‘their person, a one-stop resource. I genuinely care about each client and what’s the best option for them in pursuing their goals. My mission is to help them get there, and complete the process,” she continues.

Spring-boarding off her desire to help others professionally, Linda is passionate about lending a hand to those in need in her community on her personal time. “I enjoy volunteering for worthy causes and have always been involved with organizations I believe in.” Her volunteer time is split between a few different causes, including the Parkinson’s Association, Girl Scouts, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, and the Junior League of San Diego.

Linda joins Bennion Deville Homes after the brokerage was recommended to her by fellow real estate professional Wendy Matthews. “I enjoy how flexible and friendly everyone is in our office. There is such a welcoming atmosphere, it made it easy to join and latch onto that positive vibe and culture,” Linda concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Joe Wogoman, “Linda’s wealth of experience in real estate and finance, coupled with her ability to naturally connect with others, makes her a welcome addition to our growing Carlsbad family.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Randy Heyl

February 18, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 7:45 am
REALTOR Randy Heyl joins Bennion Deville Homes Rancho Mirage.
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Randy Heyl to the Rancho Mirage office.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Randy Heyl to the Rancho Mirage office, located at 71-691 Highway 111. Randy works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the communities of Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, and Palm Springs.

After visiting the Greater Palm Springs Area for 18 years from Los Angeles, the allure of the Southern California desert was too strong to resist. In 2014 Randy made it his home full time home after falling in love with the unique Mid-Century Modern architecture, outdoor lifestyle, and higher standard of living. “I love our community because it offers so much to its residents in terms of quality of life,” Randy says. “The hiking is incredible, it’s a haven for golfers, the spas are exceptional, and shopping is bountiful. There is a calming, relaxing quality that quiets the soul. My goal is to help my clients find the perfect setting so they can have the full desert lifestyle experience, the same reason I made this area my permanent home years ago.”

Prior to earning his real estate license, Randy made his mark in high-end retail management, where for over 25 years he trained and mentored sales staff for some of the most notable brands in the world, including Neiman Marcus, Hugo Boss, John Varvatos, and Ralph Lauren. Over this span, he perfected the craft of delivering client service with class, sophistication, and a little fun along the way. “You have to ask a client the right questions up front to get to the bottom of what it is they truly need. Communication is critical to any situation, but especially in real estate since this is one of the largest purchases anyone will make in their life. I need to make sure that I have the full scope of expectations so I am guiding my client down the proper path and can offer my expertise in the right fashion. My hope is to make the process easy for them while infusing my light, humorous approach to service.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect fit for Randy because of the company’s polished office presence and agent support programs. “Bennion Deville Homes has a professional presentation with its esteemed brand and marketing materials, as well as the design of each office location. In addition, they offer the full support from a well-organized, highly trained staff. This is a company I am proud to work for and represent,” Randy concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Don Rossignol, “Randy’s strong client-service background, passion for the local community and its unique architecture, and familiarity with the lifestyle offered by each neighborhood makes him a nice addition to our Rancho Mirage team. We look forward to working with Randy and wish him a prosperous year.”

Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas Welcomes Andrea Lynn Duncan

February 11, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 6:43 am
REALTOR Andrea Lynn Duncan joins the Bennion Deville Home Encinitas office.
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Andrea Lynn Duncan to the Encinitas office.

Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR® Andrea Lynn Duncan to the Encinitas office, located at 258 North El Camino Real, Suite C. Andrea earned her real estate license in 2011, and was in the industry for several years prior, giving her a strong foundation of knowledge and know-how to help buyers and sellers throughout Southern California, including Orange, North San Diego, and Riverside counties.

Before earning her real estate sales license, Andrea worked for a real estate investment company where her duties included scouting locations to build new communities and picking finishes for homes. This exposure to the industry resonated with her, and fueled her passion for the business. “Real estate is so much fun,” she says. “Architecture and design are my two favorite aspects of the business, and I love sharing that passion with my clients. The way people feel when they get their keys and the relationship we develop through the process is truly special.”

As a veteran of the industry, Andrea understands how to grow and nourish meaningful client relationships. As a result, the last thing she describes herself as is “salesy” and prides herself on keeping her promises to clients. “You have to be open with your communication and completely up front about expectations to get off on the right foot. I also want to make sure that my clients and I ‘click’ in a real way. That connection is vital to the success of our partnership because real estate is so personal and intimate. We need to have an unbreakable bond of trust between us and be as open as possible.”

In addition to her love of design and her relationship-oriented style, clients enjoy Andrea’s fierce negotiation tactics and deep understanding of the latest market trends. “The key to success is having strong knowledge of the market and understanding how to use it to your advantage. You can leverage information to the benefit of your situation in negotiations, but also need to arm your clients with the most up-to-date, relevant details so they can make an informed decision. You have to stay focused and disciplined when it comes to keeping tabs on the latest information,” she adds.

When she isn’t guiding her clients toward a satisfactory real estate resolution, Andrea volunteers her time for a variety of causes, including fundraisers and food drives for animals and seniors. “It is important to maintain a philanthropic relationship with the community and give back whenever possible. I feel a greater sense of accomplishment and value by helping others, and knowing that my actions are making a positive impact in someone else’s life is a major reward.”

Andrea joins Bennion Deville Homes because of the brokerage’s brand and positioning within the market place. “Brand matters to consumers. Bennion Deville Homes offers an excellent platform, including unique programs such as the LUXE Collection for high end homes, and a fresh approach to the business that stands out from the crowd. I want to provide the best for my sellers, and they give me the tools and training to accomplish that feat. We have the feel of a boutique agency, but enjoy the benefits of a vast regional and international network, which suits my clients and my business perfectly,” Andrea concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Chris Moore, “Andrea’s immense real estate background, compassion for her clients, and hunger to learn make her a huge addition to our team. On behalf of everyone in our Encinitas family, welcome Andrea.”

Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas Welcomes Alison Lechleiter

January 29, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 11:19 am
REALTOR Alison Lechleiter joins the Encinitas office of Bennion Deville Homes.
Bennion Deville Homes Encinitas welcomes REALTOR Alison Lechleiter.

Bennion Deville Homes proudly welcomes REALTOR® Alison Lechleiter to the Encinitas office, located at 258 North El Camino Real, Suite C. Alison uses her background as a teacher to educate her clients throughout San Diego County while accomplishing their real estate goals.

Real estate has always been of keen interest to Alison. “HGTV is on 24/7 in my house,” she laughs. “I love everything about homes and enjoy sharing that passion with my clients. From interior design and furniture selection to architecture and landscaping, the thought that goes into a home has always appealed to me and I relish the opportunity to use my love of real estate to improve my clients’ lives.”

Prior to earning her real estate license, Alison taught High School History for twelve years. Her pedagogical background comes in handy when working with clients because she can give them an educational experience while making the grade with their real estate dreams. “You really have to connect with students as a teacher, and the same principle applies to client relationships. Asking the right questions, digging a little deeper, and understanding what people really want and need allow me to produce top-notch results.”

After moving to San Diego in 2004, Alison and her husband, who was born and raised in Encinitas, purchased and renovated a home on their own. That experience and challenge fueled her passion for real estate, and gave her invaluable experience that she shares with her clients. Having lived and worked throughout San Diego County, including Downtown, Golden Hill, La Mesa, Del Mar, and Carlsbad, Alison is also well-versed in the different lifestyles each community affords its residents. “Having the personal experience of fully updating a home and the anecdotal understanding of what it’s like to live in a variety of neighborhoods allows me to better help my clients. Once I know my client’s desired lifestyle, I can guide them in a suitable direction and be confident they will love the outcome.”

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect choice for Alison because of the company’s warm culture and forward-thinking structure. “You can tell Bennion Deville Homes understands what clients need in today’s market. The office structure is perfect for agents, including the support of a full-time Managing Broker, and the environment is so welcoming. I found a home here,” she concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Chris Moore, “Alison has strong personal experience in real estate and an intense focus on helping her clients accomplish the best solution possible. With a background in education, she can offer clients a unique level of service. We wish her a successful 2017 and beyond, and are excited to welcome her to our growing Encinitas family.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Rex John

January 21, 2017

REALTOR Rex John has joined the Rancho Mirage office of Bennion Deville Homes
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Rex John to the Rancho Mirage office.

Bennion Deville Homes is proud to welcome REALTOR® Rex John to the Rancho Mirage office, located at 71691 Highway 111. Rex works with buyers and sellers throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in the Rancho Mirage communities of Magnesia Falls Cove, Sunrise Country Club, and Thunderbird Country Club.

Real estate has always been of keen interest to Rex, whose father was a building contractor and introduced him to construction. This early exposure to properties and how they can transform a person’s life made a large impression on Rex, who took an interest in investing in, remodeling, and renovating tired spaces prior to earning his real estate license. “I have a personal passion for homes, and enjoy leveraging that passion to the benefit of my clients,” Rex says. In addition to his love affair with real estate, Rex enjoys working with people and helping them improve their lifestyle through real estate. “The feeling of helping others find the perfect place for them is the greatest reward and a wonderful feeling.”

Prior to entering the real estate industry professionally, Rex built a longstanding public relations firm on the backbone of hard work and exceptional client service. Those same principles carry him forward as a real estate professional, simply with a twist. “Previously, I was focused on helping my clients develop the best strategies to enhance their images. Today, I am focused on helping my clients find the perfect house and turning it into a home. Although my work may be different in name, my personal ethos is the same: Treat people the way I like to be treated, which includes being truthful and candid.” Rex’s commitment to professionalism and emphasis on open communication and ethics builds a strong bond of trust with his clients.

Drawing from his vast personal real estate experience, Rex intimately understands the pivotal role he plays for his clients in creating a smooth experience, framework that was set by other professionals he worked with as an investor. “As a real estate agent, you need to be efficient and proficient to create an enjoyable transaction for your clients. The agents I worked with personally were an inspiration because I saw firsthand the difference they made in my overall impression of the process. I strive to leave the same lofty mark upon my clients with each transaction and make what can be a complicated endeavor as simple as possible.”

As a compassionate resident of the local community, Rex understands the importance of giving back and has served a variety of causes in a multitude of capacities. “I give back to help others in the community, and I am happy to play the role. We have to make sure that everything is working as it should, so I like to contribute any way I can to help the greater good.”

Rex made the decision to join Bennion Deville Homes because of the brokerage’s size and the caliber of what it means to be a Bennion Deville Homes agent. “I have high standards, so I was determined to work for the best. Bennion Deville Homes has the lion’s share of the market, and for good reason. They only hire and work with the best, and I am honored to join their family of real estate professionals,” Rex concludes.

Adds Managing Broker Don Rossignol, “Rex is an excellent addition to our growing team because of his approachable style and business acumen, including marketing, negotiations, and ethics. I am excited to welcome him on behalf of our family and wish him the best of luck.”

Bennion Deville Homes Welcomes Thomas Eitzinger

January 14, 2017
Posted by: Bennion Deville News at 6:50 am
REALTOR Thomas Eitzinger joins Bennion Deville Homes Palm Springs Main
Bennion Deville Homes welcomes REALTOR Thomas Eitzinger to the Palm Springs Main office.

Bennion Deville Homes is proud to welcome REALTOR® Thomas Eitzinger to the Palm Springs Main office, located at 850 N. Palm Canyon Drive. After working for many years as a Transaction Coordinator and Creative Director for NDC Homes, spearheaded by Bennion Deville Homes REALTOR® Neil Curry, Thomas earned his license and proudly serves clients throughout the Coachella Valley, specializing in Palm Springs. A native of Salzburg, Austria, Thomas moved to the Coachella Valley in 2007 and is fluent in English, German, Italian, and French. He hopes to use his multilinguistic talents and global mindset to expand the international appeal of living in the Greater Palm Springs area, especially for his fellow Mid-Century Modern enthusiasts around the world.

Before embarking upon a career in real estate, Thomas made waves in the fashion industry as a Senior Design Director for esteemed designer brands, including Helmut Lang and Prada. His skilled design work and creative eye blended perfectly with his role at NDC Homes, where he mastered the ins and outs of the real estate transaction process while developing sharp marketing materials and clever graphic design. “Earning my real estate license was a natural progression in my career,” Thomas says. “I wanted to become a bigger part of the sales process. I love interacting with clients and applying my creative skills and industry knowledge to help them accomplish their real estate goals.”

Having a background as a Transaction Coordinator is a huge benefit to Thomas and his clients because he is intimately familiar with the contracts required to successfully complete a real estate deal. “I can provide my clients insight on the paperwork and help them get the best deal possible. Being keenly aware of what the documents say is a critical component as the contract is a legal form. This understanding allows me to guide clients through the process and deliver a smooth experience from start to finish,” Thomas adds.

In addition to mastering the art of contracts and negotiations, Thomas has an exceptional artistic vision for living spaces, having helped with home staging at NDC Homes. Whether working with home buyers or sellers, his skillset helps his clients. “I can give my listing clients tips to declutter and organize a space, and, if needed, stage the room to appeal to homebuyers. For my homebuyer clients, I show them the potential in a home by helping them visualize what it can be and offer ideas to make that vision a reality,” he continues.

Thomas is excited to continue his career with Bennion Deville Homes as a sales team member of NDC Homes. “I experienced the quality of service Bennion Deville Homes offers its agents firsthand while working with Neil. We have the biggest market share in Palm Springs and the best support around,” he concludes.

Adds Managing Broker David Cantwell, “Thomas is on the fast track to success by continuing his real estate career at Bennion Deville Homes. His background in marketing and transaction support amounts to an excellent leg up on the competition, and I know with the combination of our support services and his partnership with Neil Curry and NDC Homes he will have a wealth of resources at his fingertips. We are excited to see him advance in his career and wish him the best of luck moving forward.”

As an entrepreneur, James has embarked upon many interesting and unique business ventures ranging from being President of a multi-million dollar corporation that owned the world’s largest collection of Hollywood studio props and costumes to owning and operating nearly a dozen smaller businesses, among them a travel agency, a dating service and a retail emporium, where as customers shopped for everything from clothing and CDs to cards and gifts, James would walk a tightrope or perform a trapeze act high above his patrons’ heads.  His unparalleled, creative, diverse business background and pedigree has afforded him that perfect blend of professional knowledge, proficiency, efficiency, and an acute business acumen that allows him to seamlessly guide his clients from start to successful close of any transaction.

Beyond his ability to serve clients in traditional transactions, James has a remarkable eye for investments, stemming from his personal experiences as a chronic house-flipper. “For me, investing in real estate is a highly creative process that ultimately comes down to value. I have invested in and sold every type of property imaginable, ranging from traditional, single-family homes and beach houses to penthouse lofts, multi-family residential units and condos. I enjoy the art of finding investors the perfect home, condo, or investment property that gets them the biggest bang for their hard-earned buck.”

Personally, James is the true definition of a “Renaissance Man.” He has backpacked through 144 countries across 6 continents, travelled to 20 of the 21 “Wonders of the World,” earned his pilot’s license so he could fly his high-performance plane, captained his own yacht, and raised 3 monkeys. He is also a well-rounded musician who plays a variety of instruments, and has both composed and written two musicals. His time in the spotlight also includes a variety of dancing credentials, including being a former FAME and Chippendale’s dancer, and winning Star Search and Dance Fever. James was also a collegiate gymnast and cheerleader at both Arizona State University and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, a black belt in both Judo and Karate and former Judo instructor, and is an Emmy Awardâ winner for one of his HBO films that he wrote, directed, and produced. James has been featured in periodicals ranging from TIME and Newsweek to The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and a guest on every major network, including Oprah, The View, Howard Stern, Fox & Friends, Anderson Cooper, and more.

Bennion Deville Homes is the perfect place for James because he wants to work with the best. “Bennion Deville Homes’ affiliation with Luxury Portfolio Internationalâ and status as the #1 listing and sales brokerage in the Coachella Valley is of enormous appeal to me. We have the network and size to ensure that all listings attract as many qualified buyers as possible, and the support needed within each office to let us focus on what we do best – list and sell properties for our clients so they may enjoy the sublime Southern California lifestyle,” James concludes.

Adds Managing Broker David Cantwell, “James has an impressive list of professional and personal accomplishments, all of which give him a leg up in serving his clients. We are excited to welcome him to our Palm Springs Main office family and see a bright future in our partnership.”
