How long have you been associated with real estate in La Jolla?
Barbara Leinenweber has been working with La Jolla real estate for the past decade, personally buying and selling homes since 1983. She works at Coldwell Banker brokerage, a business she says is team oriented and “helps promote tools and global reach to sell properties in La Jolla.” Barbara is well-equipped with a marketing degree from SDSU, countless connections from living in the La Jolla area and maintaining an active membership with REBA.
How has real estate changed?
“It’s changed a lot,” Leinenweber said. Having started work when the economy was strong and having worked through the crash in ’08, Leinenweber says that finally the real estate industry is “coming back stronger than ever.” It was a buyer’s market before, when prices were low, but now it’s a sellers market; prices are up, homes sell quickly and there is a need for more inventory.
