As most San Diegans already know, this city is a diverse assortment of small villages. Even though San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US, with all the advantages of a major urban area, it has managed to retain its small-town spirit. The energetic feeling of community is strong in San Diego’s varied neighborhoods that have developed their own unique characteristics. There are more than 100 separate, identifiable neighborhoods. Time to choose yours.


Coronado is a spit of land directly west of Downtown San Diego and can be reached by ferry, by the graceful arching Coronado Bridge, or via the “Silver Strand,” a narrow spit of land that connects Coronado with Imperial Beach to the south.

In many ways, Coronado is a small town with a big history. The North Island Naval Station occupies the northern part of the Coronado Peninsula and from here Charles Lindbergh began the first leg of his cross-Atlantic journey. On the beach, is the historic Hotel Del Coronado, where countless celebrities, sports icons and politicians from all over the world have stayed and enjoyed the weather and the beaches for over a century.

Coronado has more retired military officers than any other location in the country among its residents. It is not just military brass who have discovered the charm of the “island.” It is an ideal place to raise a family—good schools, low crime, and beautiful beaches are among its attributes. Coronado is Spanish for “the crowned one”, and thus it is nicknamed The Crown City.

The downtown village of Coronado looks like a movie set. One-of-a-kind shops, theaters, and restaurants line Orange Avenue, the main boulevard through town.

In addition to the city center, there are several residential communities along the “Silver Strand” to the south. Some properties have boat docks and marinas leading to the bay.

Dan Dennison has been my agent throughout the entire process of the search for my first home.

Having witnessed many friends and family members go through this process throughout the years, I knew I needed a trustworthy and patient agent.

My very first search for a home was certainly an enjoyable and smooth process because of Dan. He is knowledgeable (with decades of experience in Real Estate across multiple states in the country), professional (has an MBA in addition to his experience in the field), friendly (has two friendly dogs as well!), and patient (took his time explaining and answering any questions I had).

From day one, Dan was honest, professional, and easy to work with. He takes great care in listening to the client and identifying their wishes in the home search. He carefully explains things in a logical and easy-to-understand manner for a first-time buyer like myself.

In addition, Dan has been an excellent resource and as well as a friend when it came to other important items related to the search, such as identifying and navigating through the lending process, learning about what an HOA covers, locating a trustworthy insurance company, home warranties, and discussions with the listing agents and sellers about questions.

Dan Dennison is an agent who will go above and beyond to provide the highest quality of service to you, holding the clients' interest at heart.

I absolutely loved working with Dan while purchasing my first home in Kensington. Overall he is an extremely honest and reliable individual with strong ethics, traits much needed in the business. If you are new to buying a home (as I was) you will not need someone to find the home for you. Zillow, Trulia, Google, etc will serve the search process with ease.

It is really once you are in the position to make an offer than a realtor becomes indispensable. You need someone to guide you through the complex process, negotiate, and make sure the contract is written in a way that protects you. I cannot stress this enough. During our offer the contract was initially written (unbenounced to me) in quite unfavorable terms to me, which he pushed to get changed. Additionally he was forceful during the inspection process and I ended up getting quite a lot of money to pay for repairs that were needed (it's a 1931 home). I also bought the home for cheaper than the listed price.

Overall, it was great working with Dan, I would work again with him, and I would refer him to anyone who asked.
