Real Estate Services

I am committed to assisting our Senior Citizens located in the San Diego area. I provide assistance in helping them make the often emotional and difficult transition of "rightsizing" or making the move out of their family home into assisted living accommodations.

Media Fettinger is a Realtor in San Diego whose extensive volunteer work with senior organizations such as Meals on Wheels, the Braille Institute, and San Diego County's Aging & Independence Services Department has lent to her deep understanding of the challenges seniors face. She is committed to being a knowledgeable resource to seniors during the chaotic home selling process (CalBRE #01930055).

Transitioning into senior living should not be difficult or stressful. The Senior Home Purchase Program solves these issues by specializing in a simplified turn-key service, purchasing homes in “as is” condition at an agreed price, validated by an independent, certified appraisal.
