Coming to Coronado:
When my wife and I first moved here in 1999, we were blown away by Coronado's beauty, charm and the small-town community that enabled local islanders to connect with each other in a way that just isn't possible with bigger cities. It still amazes me that when I walk to the beach, downtown shops or even the grocery store, I'll bump into at least two to three people that I know (and that's a good thing!). Two kids later, we can both agree that moving to Coronado and raising our family here has been a fantastic decision. Whether you are coming over the bridge for the first time or the millionth time, you can't help but take a deep breath, let down your shoulders and smile. Paradise found.
Investing in Coronado:
We bought our first home here in 1999 and I started thinking about the idea of building a website to showcase Coronado for locals, visitors and most of all, provide an online community where everyone could participate and contribute to the website. I built the first version in 2002. The response was overwhelming and eCoronado.com was born. Paradise shared.
