The Appleby family arrived in La Jolla in 1971, where Scott Appleby and Kerry Appleby Payne, the dynamic brother-sister duo, were raised. Scott graduated from La Jolla High School and earned a BS in Geological Science from Dartmouth College. Kerry graduated from The Bishop’s School in La Jolla and earned a BS in Education from USC in Los Angeles. Appleby Family Real Estate opened its doors in 1984 and is proud to be celebrating a 30 year family tradition of trusted real estate service. They specialize in San Diego luxury real estate and Mary Appleby, Scott and Kerry’s mother, began the family business…..thus, the motto of “It Takes A Family”. Founded on professional and personal real estate services, Scott and Kerry continue to earn the trust and respect of their valued clients, as well as fellow Brokers and RE Agents. Leaders in the high end luxury market, the Applebys take great pride in their creative marketing, strong negotiating skills and extensive market knowledge. Building long term relationships with their clients is their desire and selling real estate in America’s Finest City is their passion. The Applebys spent their school years and early post college years in La Jolla, before moving up the coast to Del Mar and finally settling in Rancho Santa Fe with their families. Having both owned property in all three luxury neighborhoods, they are truly qualified to call themselves “real estate specialists” in La Jolla, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe. Scott and Kerry are proud to be affiliated with Willis Allen Real Estate, which celebrates 100 years of real estate excellence in San Diego. Founded in 1914, the company headquarters are in La Jolla with retail offices in Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, La Jolla, Point Loma, Downtown San Diego and Coronado.
