Meet Edward Philbrick

Today we’d like to introduce you to Edward Philbrick.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I have two decades of San Diego real estate experience. I’m committed to helping your family find a safe, solid community home and help you invest for the future. My goal is to earn a five-star review by providing an exceptional experience. I’m not the biggest team in town, but I personally handle your sale or purchase from beginning to end.

I am the publisher/owner of San Elijo Life, an award-winning local community blog for San Elijo Hills. I also have 20 years of online marketing and media experience. I graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in Marketing. I have lived in San Elijo Hills in San Marcos for 16 years with my wife and daughter. We enjoy surfing, cycling, hiking, volleyball and building our community.

Cycling Achievements:
Multiple top-ten finisher USA Cycling National Championships road and track.
California State Champion Junior, Senior, and Masters.
3 time USA Olympic Training Center attendee – USA Cycling

Covering North County San Diego from “The Hills to The Coast” Contact me today!

Has it been a smooth road?
I originally grew up racing bicycles at a national class level in the US and France. I found that working in the cycling industry swamped my passion for riding and I moved to San Diego to get a marketing degree and work in real estate. I left cycling behind and enjoyed surfing and volleyball. I have recently returned to gravel cycling completing the 2019 Belgian Waffle Ride, Filthy 50 and enjoying cycling again.

Not a smooth road: steady work since 2006 starting San Elijo Life and transition into becoming a Realtor. Learning curve and blending community website with the source for local real estate and news and events is a challenge. Now, people think of me as a realtor 1st not the former President of the San Elijo Hills Community Association or online marketing.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Earning your business with a high level of service and extensive local knowledge. I utilize my online marketing skills to expose your home to a wide market. I personally help get your home ready for the market. No handoff to team members I personally handle your home purchase or sale from beginning to end. I fly the drone, take photos to do your online marketing. I specialize in North County San Diego with a hyper-local passion for San Elijo Hills and San Marcos

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
San Marcos is almost built out and now it’s a great time for small businesses to come in renew the older areas and faded zones with new vibrant businesses. It could not be a better time with North City and The San Marcos Creek district all the local breweries and new restaurants coming alive in San Marcos. San Marcos is now home to a couple of great cycling events that are pulling in visitors from all around the country, the Belgian Waffle Ride (BWR), the most unique cycling event in the country, is now in its ninth year of existence and the new Sagan Fondo Gran Roadie-Oh! feature European cycling star Peter Sagan, The San Marcos Chamber of commerce is working hard on events like Taste of San Marcos and the San Marcos Farmers Market at Lake San Marcos. I have seen a transformation of business in San Marcos in my 16 years living here.
