Managing Editor Deanna Murphy talks with real estate pros including Bree Bornstein, Delorine Jackson, Garret Milligan, and Linda Sansone to get their take on what's happening now in this luxury micro-market, and to peer into the crystal ball to try to predict what's to come. Gone — at least for now — are low interest rates and crazy demand that led to multiple offers way over asking prices, Murphy reports. e market has stabilized somewhat, a "new normal" after years of frenzy. Even though inventory is low, experts say home buyers aren't snapping up overvalued properties, and bidding wars seem to be a thing of the past. But the experts also say there will always be demand because our area is such a desirable place in which to live, and lots of affluent buyers don't have to worry about rising interest rates, as they can pay cash. For our cover story, Murphy also profiles siblings Laura Barry and Jason Barry, two top real estate agents based in Rancho Santa Fe, who, with brother Sean Barry, are continuing the Barry Estates dynasty founded by their late parents, Catherine and Daniel Barry, who moved to the Ranch in the 1970s looking for a good school for their kids. ey later struck real estate gold, launching a successful business that is reaching even greater heights thanks to the commitment of their children. To mark Women's History Month in March, contributing editor Bill Abrams traces the history of women who have served our country ever since the Revolutionary War. ranchandcoast.com 26 MARCH 2023 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
