Cathy Brown

cathyCathy is incredibly driven and active in the community. Through SoCal, she has been directly involved in more that 450 transactions over the course of three years. Cathy serves on the board of the Coronado Real Estate Association (CREA) and this year was elected to the California Association of Realtors board of directors. She may be best known as President of the Coronado Promenade Concerts, where each week this past summer she has introduced all the crowd pleasing bands. Moreover, she and her board raised the money necessary to pay those bands, and to upgrade the infrastructure including a new sound system for the popular concert series.

Back in her homeland of Cape Cod, Cathy was co-host of the “Cathy and Don Show” a drive-time talk show airing over WXTK, a 50,000 watt radio station on the edge of Boston. She may never have settled in Coronado if not for Family Feud. She and her two sisters, mother and a cousin were the big winners on the TV show, and Cathy used her share of the $10,000 prize money to treat herself to a fitness weekend in Santa Barbra. That’s where she met Coronado resident Nancy Lenhart, owner of New Directions & Lifestyles, a health and fitness company. In short, Cathy moved west and has resided in California ever since.

Jack Rosenthal

THD_5045Jack Rosenthal acquired his real estate license shortly after graduating from high school in the early 70’s.  The analysis and sale of income producing real estate grew to become his core business. In the early 80’s he created and taught the first real estate investment property class offered through the San Diego Community College system.

His passion for surfing and coastal property investments found him dividing his time between San Diego and Sydney for much of his working career.  In Sydney he worked in banking and financial markets. His weekly commentaries on Bloomberg News in Sydney were a broadly referenced view of the volatile events in global currency and interest rate markets.

Since returning full time to San Diego in 2008, Jack has been working with clients, assessing, selling and buying residential investment properties. In an era when money market accounts pay one half of one percent, his clients have again discovered the wonder of positive cash flow rental property. The scarcity of new rental properties in San Diego is acute.  Jack firmly believes that quality, well-located residential rentals will continue to outperform other asset classes.
