30 Year Veteran & Local REALTOR Dusty Brazil has lived all over North County San Diego

When I was 10 years old, I moved to Poway from Riverside. This was when I had a total metamorphosis as a person and child. Now that the beach was just 30 minutes away, my life had changed forever, LIVING IN NORTH COUNTY! Wow, how North County San Diego has changed. Population has grown, big time. What used to take 10 minutes now takes 30. These days I pretty much tell people that it takes 30 minutes to go anywhere in North County, unless you know it as well as I do!

My story very unique.. I was born in Hawaii, grew up in Fiji. No, just kidding, I  was born in Buena Park, moved to Riverside when I was 2 1/2. Living in Riverside was awesome. I had the real deal childhood growing up. I had an older brother, Kiley, and we were best buddies all the way up til we moved to Poway. We rode dirt bikes, played war, played soccer, swam in our swimming pool, you name it, we were BFF’s.  After moving to Poway, he kind of went Rap Music and I went Punk. Hey played basketball, Nintendo,…. I skateboarded.. and then skated some more. THEN I GOT THE SURF BUG. That was when I discovered THE  REAL NORTH COUNTY SAN DIEGO! Cardiff By The Sea, Encinitas, Oceanside, Carlsbad, Del Mar,  Solana Beach, La Jolla. Those were all the spots me and my surf buddies would prowl after school, before school and weekends. I remember when I was in 8th, 9th , 10th grade when my mom would take us to Scripps Pier because the 52 freeway had just opened up and it was hands down the closest beach..  with a lifeguard! ( it really didn’t though).


Love Living in North San Diego, California

As the years passed by, I ended up taking roots in Solana Beach. I think I surfed Pill Box 5 years straight in a row. That is kind of how this thing about living in North County works, you find your groove and don’t really veer from it much at all. Am I wrong? Anyhow, during high school years and into college Solana Beach was the spot. Little did I know that one day I would end up being a REALTOR in these areas. Heck, only if I knew then what I know now, I would have been the #1 agent in North County? How you ask? Simple, I would have started my online marketing efforts back in the .com boom… half of Rancho Bernardo, Carlsbad, and Encinitas, especially Carmel Valley didn’t even really exist back in these days.

There is no doubt about it, the pace has definitely picked up, and it’s a bit more of a rat race these days, to get around at least. It seems like yesterday, I remember taking Arteisian Road,  which is now home to some of North San Diego’s most high-end Luxury Real Estate, i.e.:Del Sur Real Estate San Diego, 4S Ranch, Bing Crosby Golf Community Real Estate, Santaluz Real Estate, and a ton of other developments far and wide. Anyhow, like I was saying, when you have lived in North County as long as I have, you develop a love and passion for LIVING IN NORTH COUNTY San Diego.

Local to North San Diego Over 30 Years and Counting

After I graduated Poway High in 1993, I went to Mira Costa Community college. Guess where? Yep. Cardiff by the Sea, of course! These were the best days. Working at the Cardiff Chart House and other cool local spots, to get by, living near the beach. I lived all over the place during this time, Cardiff By The Sea Homes, Leucadia Homes, Encinitas Homes, Solana Beach Homes: in homes for rent, back when you could get a house in Leucadia for 1500 bucks a month for a 3/2 home. GONE ARE THE DAYS OF LIVING IN NORTH COUNTY ON A STUDENTS INCOME. Property values in North County San Diego have gone way up, in some places, double, if not tripled since these golden years: THE 90’s. ( Tear Drop) Again, only if I knew then what I know now. I’m sure I would have put all money into real estate, and gotten my dad, brother, cousins and uncles in on it too!

In 1998 I graduated CSUSM ( Cal State San Marcos) and got a B.A. in SPANISH. Then went on to get my teaching credential and ended up teaching 3 years of High School Spanish. THEN I GOT INTO REAL ESTATE. Thus, my the birth of my North County San Diego Real Estate Blog.
