The Coronado Real Estate Association, an organization with 180 members, recently named Scott Aurich of Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty and Caroline Haines of Coldwell Banker West Realty their Co-Realtors of the Year for 2019. The plaque reads, ‘In recognition of your cooperation, ethics, integrity, community service and service to this association and the entire real estate industry.’

Haines, who also won the award in 2013 and 2015, was pleasantly surprised by the honor, and said what winning again in 2019 with Aurich as the co-winner meant to her. “To be voted an award by your peers is the biggest compliment anybody could have. I love what I do, so it’s not hard. I will say to be acknowledged makes you feel very good and it’s recognition that you worked hard. I do the best I can every day. Winning this with Scott has put a whole different perspective on the award. He’s been the No. 1 producer in Coronado and supported CREA so much. He shows up and comes to almost every Wednesday meeting, which shows there is worth to the meeting because he does come. That’s what I love about Scott. He is very thorough and responsive, and he answers his phone. It’s a compliment that I won the award with him. The way he does sell real estate, there is no chip on his shoulder, no ego involved, and we have established a very nice, respectful relationship with one another.”

Willis Allen Real Estate, the 100-year old San Diego-based family owned brokerage, today announced that Realtor Zach Todaro has been named Coronado Realtor of the Year. The award is voted on by the members of the Coronado Real Estate Association and recognizes cooperation, ethics, integrity, community service and service to the association and the entire real estate industry. Todaro received the award at an installation luncheon for the 2015 board and officers.

“My family first arrived to Coronado in 1918, and it has been a long road to get to this point,” says Todaro. “Real estate has always been essential to the prosperity of my family, so to receive recognition in the community I grew up in is very rewarding.”

Todaro has served on the Coronado Real Estate Association Board since 2011 and is currently serving his second consecutive term as president. He says it is important for people to understand the enormous apparatus operating behind the scenes of the real estate industry that ensures accurate data reporting, ethics enforcement, lobbying on behalf of home ownership, charity and education.

Time is running out for you to enter the Coronado Real Estate Association’s (CREA) Village Entrance Design Competition, as applications are due between 6 to 7 p.m., Thursday, September 25, 2014. The turn-in location is the Willis Allen Real Estate office located at 875 Orange Avenue in Coronado.

The design contest is a project headed by CREA President Zach Todaro, who works with Willis Allen Real Estate and CREA Vice President Caroline Haines of Lee Mather Realty. The concept for the design contest originated with Haines. The Village Entrance Design Contest will consist of three divisions, with the winners in each category including students, amateurs and professionals, receiving $500 each from CREA.

Another important person contributing time to the design contest is Coronado City Councilmember Richard Bailey, who along with Councilmember Mike Woiwode comprises a city sub-committee to interact with the community to help improve the overall design of the city’s entrance. Specifically the area includes the Coronado portion of the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge, which many residents believe needs an aesthetic overhaul.

Of the strong belief that the entrance to the city of Coronado from the San Diego-Coronado Bay Bridge needs an overhaul, the Coronado Real Estate Association (CREA) has decided to run a design contest to move the process along. Recently I met with CREA President Zach Todaro and Vice President Caroline Haines, who in their real line of work are competing real estate agents. Todaro represents Willis Allen Real Estate, while Haines works for the Lee Mather Company. But they are now cooperating to help beautify the city.

Our meeting was unique in the respect that both Haines and Todaro are fourth generation Coronadoans. Todaro can trace his roots in the city back to 1918, while Haines and her family came to Coronado in a unique way one year earlier. “My great grandfather was in a late night poker game in 1917 and the wager was $5,000,” Haines said of her family’s folklore. “The other man involved in the wager put the deed to his home, located at 965 Alameda Blvd. into the pot. My great grandfather won and moved the family out here from East Orange, New Jersey. The home is still there. As a family, we have always wanted to know what the winning hand was.”
