SAN DIEGO, CA – Walter Johnson and Leeann Iacino, founders of Walter Johnson Yachts and Luxury Coastal Lifestyle, announce a new affiliation with San Diego-based real estate firm Pacific Real Estate Center. The partnership will follow their innovative business model, combining a progressive yacht brokerage with a luxury real estate brokerage.
Erin Nelson of Pacific Real Estate Center brings extensive real estate experience in the Point Loma and San Diego Harbor areas, as well as knowledge of yachts and boating. Having grown up in Ocean Beach Point Loma, she is as local as one can get and has a deep understanding of the many micro communities that make up that coastal region. And as an active member of the San Diego Yacht Club and Kona Kai Club, she lives and breathes the coastal lifestyle.
“When I learned about the business model of Walter Johnson Yachts and Luxury Coastal Lifestyle, it felt like a perfect fit with my background. I’m excited about our partnership and look forward to a prosperous future, “ says Erin.
Nelson, along with Walter Johnson Yachts’ salesman, Chris Winnard, will head up the San Diego team. Winnard, a lifelong yachtsman, has spent much of his life in San Diego, racking up multiple national titles and competing in several world championships. He was even awarded Yachtsman of the Year in 2002 by the San Diego Association of Yacht Clubs. He is currently an active member of the Mission Bay Yacht Club and works with the board to promote events and bring more people into the boating family.
This partnership allows Walter Johnson Yachts and Luxury Coastal Lifestyle to expand their reach from Santa Barbara to San Diego, serving all Southern California harbors.
“We are excited about our partnership with Erin Nelson of Pacific Real Estate Center and our expansion to the San Diego area. Erin’s heritage in the San Diego Harbor community, plus her knowledge of yachts are a perfect match for us,” says Leeann Iacino and Walter Johnson.
Walter Johnson Yachts and Luxury Coastal Lifestyle offer a full suite of boat brokerage services and concierge global luxury real estate services. They are also the first boat brokerage to offer finder fees to Realtors who refer boat sales and to boat sales associates who offer real estate referrals.
As modern day innovators in luxury coastal living, Walter Johnson Yachts and Luxury Coastal Lifestyle merge a progressive yacht brokerage with a global real estate brokerage blending two dynamic forces under one exclusive brokerage. Their connections to high caliber buyers and affiliations with international real estate resources give their clients unlimited access to both yacht and real estate sales.
