What makes a top equestrian realtor? Is it knowledge of the real estate business in both the commercial and equestrian fields? Or having the marketing tools needed to run a successful business? Carol Shuttleworth from California Equestrian Properties takes all of these vital tools and adds her own flair to it. Not only does she have both the knowledge and marketing capabilities, but she has a lengthy background with horses and a passion for these animals.
Being a devoted rider since 1996, Carol has been immersed in all things equestrian. She has acquired experience and an understanding of the sport that is only gained by being a part of the horse world. Carol has also owned an equestrian property for sixteen years and has the hands on experience needed to be successful in the equestrian real estate business.
Ken and Carol Shuttleworth are a husband and wife team that have been in the real estate business together for over thirty years, with the former having been in this profession since 1970. Ken specializes in commercial real estate and has just recently partnered with Carol in equestrian realty. In these thirty years of professionalism, the Shuttleworth team has sold hundreds of properties all over the San Diego County. Avid equestrians and trainers who live in the San Diego area may consider Ken and Carol to be a blessing in the horse community. Carol in particular has had countless experiences in all fields of equestrianism. She is a founder and president of a local equestrian organization called the Twin Oaks Valley Equestrian association (TOVEA), which advocates for the equestrian and rural lifestyles in the San Marcos area and its surrounding communities.
She knows the ins and outs of a “good” property and ensures that her clients will have the best possible experience that she can provide. One who is looking to buy a horse property may find the whole process a bit daunting. There are so many factors to consider when contemplating the purchase of an equestrian facility. The buyer must regard the size and acreage of the property, zoning restrictions, various required permits, the location of water and electricity supply, etc. It seems like a lot to think about, but when one has a seasoned professional working on their side, the whole process goes about much more smoothly. The California Equestrian Properties team acknowledges the difficulty of being a buyer and quotes:
“As hard as it to find a suitable horse property, it is even harder to find someone who understands the equestrian’s needs. We here at California Equestrian Properties take pride in helping our clients find the best possible property and making the experience as enjoyable as possible.”
A unique factor that sets California Equestrian Properties apart from the average realty group is that they take a more personal approach while coming to the table with extensive knowledge of and experience with both the business and sport. It can be guaranteed that buyers will be partnered with a reliable team who has well rounded knowledge in both the equestrian and commercial real estate business. Anyone with a real estate license can claim to be an equestrian specialist. However, those at California Equestrian Properties can live up to their slogan of “We are Passionate about the Equestrian Lifestyle” and prove it. Being a horse owner, rider, and equestrian association president, Carol is passionate about horses and the equestrian lifestyle, and can surely set the bar for equestrian real estate agents in the San Diego area.
