Top 10 Pizza Places in North County (San Diego)

by Michelle Harvey on 01/29/17

I decided to head over to Yelp and do a search for “pizza”. My husband and I have many discussions figuring out where to eat and usually consult Yelp on a regular basis. Because our son loves pizza sooo much, we tend to eat a lot of pizza so I was curious to know what pizza places were the local favorites. I searched in 10 different cities, on Yelp, in North County to see where the top rated pizza place for each city was located. I can’t personally vouch for these selections as they were selected by the reviewers on Yelp, but I am excited to try all of them out! What are some of your personal favorites? How do they compare to Yelp's rankings?

CSUSM College of Business Speed Networking Tradeshow

by Michelle Harvey on 05/28/11

About a month ago I was asked to be a speaker (along with other esteemed alumni) at the College of Business Speed Networking Tradeshow at CSUSM. I was given my own table where students would sit down and talk to us about our professions, career paths and overall advice. After a set amount of time passed the students would move to the next table and I would speak with a new set of students, kinda like speed dating (at least that is how they explained it to us)!

I thouroughly enjoyed the event and loved meeting and speaking with the soon to be graduating students! It has been over 9 years since I was a business student and it was very exciting to be on the other side of the desk, so to speak.;)

Congratulations to the class of 2011!


Giving my clients a pat on the back

by Michelle Harvey on 05/15/11

As I sit here watching the rain (yes, rain!) out my office window I have been thinking about all the great organizations my company has been able to donate to over the years. These donations have been made possible by my great clients and donating is truly one of my favorite things to do when a deal closes.

The idea started when I decided to give back each time I sold a home. Life flies by and I realized I was always saying I should do something but always forgetting to just do it. By donating each time I sold a home it was a conscious reminder to give a little something back. It is always interesting to see where my client's intereste lie. Sometimes the company is chosen once, but I usually donate several times to the same company which is wonderful.

Here are just some of the companies off the top of my head that have been able to benefit from all of my awesome home sellers and buyers! In no particular order: Children's Miracle Network, Rady Children's Hospital, CSUSM scholarships, American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen, Hospice of North San Diego County, The Make a Wish Foundation, The Ronald McDonald House, The American Red Cross and the Helen Woodward Animal Center.

A big thank you to my clients!
