Windermere Homes & Estates
K Sorenson and Jamie Melim represent clients all over the county but specialize in the I-15 corridor and the neighborhoods within the Poway Unified School District. With more than 40 years of combined real estate experience as a team, and as local Poway residents themselves, this mother-daughter duo are always on top of market trends and take pride in their tenacious work ethic. “We are honest, innovative, and driven to stay at the top of our industry,” said Jamie. They began working together 15 years ago and have been recognized as Platinum Award winners annually for their outstanding sales volume. Their unique strengths combine to give their clients a strategic advantage. K stated, “When you’re working with us, you’ll soon realize that we always put our clients first, and we are available to our clients at every step of the way as much as they need us. Not to mention you’re getting two full time, award-winning REALTORS® working on your behalf every day, all day.”
“You’re getting two full time, award-winning REALTORS® working on your behalf every day, all day.”
In today’s market, K and Jamie believe that it’s critical for a REALTOR® to be an expert contract negotiator with a proven track record of sales successes, plus have the ability to be creative and forward-thinking with regard to marketing. They believe that each home they represent is unique and needs to be marketed differently in order to achieve the best results. Jamie believes, “In this business, who you hire matters tremendously, and not all REALTORS® are alike.” She continued, “We work tirelessly because we love this business, and selling real estate is something we happen to be really good at. Yes, we are competitive and the recognition part that comes with our successes to date is nice, but we love the people we represent and their families even more. Their happiness is what truly matters.”
“K and Jamie were fantastic. Why? Simple – they listened to us and discerned what was most important to us. In addition, selling a house can be pretty stressful. K and Jamie relieved me of all the stress of the selling process because they were very professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. I usually sent emails in the evening, often fairly late, and was often surprised to get immediate responses. Finally, this wasn’t my first rodeo; it was my fifth and my best experience so far. If I ever need a REALTOR® in the Poway area again, I’ll only need to make one call: to K and Jamie.” – V. Whidden

Halcyon Real Estate Services
“Your Expert Agent in the Poway Unified School District!”
In 1993, Cynthia Elizondo earned her M.B.A. in International Business. She has used the knowledge she gained to start several successful entrepreneurial endeavors, but her true passion has always lain with real estate. So, when she was presented with the opportunity to follow that dream, she jumped at the chance and never looked back.
Cynthia began working with Halcyon Real Estate Services so that she could help others achieve their dreams of buying and selling their first home, investment property, or simply take the next step on their journey in real estate.
A certified negotiation expert, Cynthia knows exactly what it takes to make a successful deal. When representing buyers, Cynthia takes the time to learn exactly what they are looking for in a home, as well as what price they are comfortable with, in order to match them with their ideal property. When representing sellers, she thinks outside the box to negotiate deals with potential buyers, creating a win-win situation for both parties.
Cynthia’s expertise especially lies with the residential areas that make up the Poway Unified School District. Growing up in Northern California, Cynthia ultimately found her dream home here in North County, where she raised two children who attended PUSD schools for over 15 years. Utilizing her familiarity with the school district and all it has to offer, Cynthia is able to provide her clients with an extensive knowledge of various schools. Ultimately, she can help clients find a home within the boundaries of the school best suited for them and their children.
Following her belief that volunteerism makes for a strong community, Cynthia serves on the board of directors for the Poway Senior Center and the Poway Chamber of Commerce, and volunteers with Soroptimist International of Poway and Poway Real Estate Professionals. As a devout Catholic, Cynthia is also an active member of St. Gabriel Catholic Church, where her husband serves as a deacon.
In addition to English, Cynthia is also fluent in Spanish and French. And if you speak the language of wine, she is always happy to regale you with stories of being raised in the Napa Valley.
“Cynthia was fantastic in helping us find our dream home. We moved from out of state and she made sure we knew everything about our new community. She worked with us for over 6 months and was very responsive with all of our requests. After we made an offer on a home, she worked with the selling agent, our lender, inspectors, and the title company to make sure the transaction was as smooth as possible. Cynthia is by far the best agent I’ve worked with.” – Client who bought a home in Poway

Kindred Real Estate
As broker/owner of Kindred Real Estate, David Rudd puts his passion and diligence to work for his clients. “Selling and buying real estate is complex,” said David. “My goal is to make the process entirely stress-free while making sure we sell your home for top dollar in the fastest amount of time.”
That’s possible through his exceptional marketing. “Our full-time MBA director of marketing is a genius at making sure your home looks great and is seen everywhere,” explained David. He offers free staging to almost all his listings, and spends most of his substantial marketing budget on promoting listings instead of promoting himself. His in-depth market knowledge and negotiating skill led him to close over 75 transactions in 2015.
“I formally founded Kindred less than five years ago, and we now outperform 99 percent of San Diego agents,” shared David. He is the official real estate voice for the Padres radio network, and has his own weekly radio program called The David Rudd Real Estate Show. “I regularly have entrepreneurs come on to showcase their products,” David said. “I am always in awe of what my clients are working on – amazing people accomplish amazing things!”
He keeps in touch with many of his amazing clients. “Ninety-nine percent of my clients become family,” said David. “We regularly win awards and are thankful for every one. But the awards mean very little in comparison to the families we have helped.”
“The reviews don’t lie, and we were so pleased with the whole process. From the very beginning, David was attentive, knowledgeable, and prompt. Our home was staged and we had multiple offers in the first week.”
