Broker Pam Moss has 40 years of experience in the real estate business. What sets her apart from other brokers and agents is her extensive training in a wide variety of services related to real estate. She started out taking courses in title insurance at Boston University and then quickly rose in that industry to be national sales manager at a major national title company.
Her responsibilities included training new sales representatives, opening new escrow locations and establishing the marketing meetings for Orange County Association of Real Estate Investment Brokers and the Southern California Real Estate Exchange Meetings.
Moss explained the differences between a Realtor®, agent and broker. A Realtor® is a member of the National Association of Realtors®. Beyond that, the difference is the amount of education one has. An agent, she said, has the equivalent of an associate’s degree while a broker’s education is equal to a least a master’s degree.
Her education continued with MAI Appraisal Institute certification along with certifications in investment, exchange and probate services. Moss went on to establish an independent real estate brokerage in Orange County.
Her resume includes teaching continuing education for real estate brokers and accountants, certified commercial investment brokers – investment analysis courses as well as ethics at Orange Coast College. She also served on the Professional Standards and Grievance Committee as a judge in Newport Beach, hearing complaints for 20 years.
Furthermore, her experiences in working with land searches, water rights, deeds, documents and appraisals enable her to determine each property’s unique attributes that are important to its value and to whoever buys and sells it.
Moss comes from a real estate family that specialized in agriculture for two generations, so when she moved to Bonsall in 2005 she incorporated her love of equestrian sports with her real estate knowledge. She owned her own horse ranch with several horses at that time.
She has since moved to Fallbrook but still has one horse. From her own experience, she knows the requirements for an equestrian property and where to find one while serving the needs of the equestrian buyer or investor.
Her knowledge also gives her an advantage in dealing with property issues like road maintenance, private roads, easements, encroachments, septic systems, water rights and county zoning requirements all of which are common to the Fallbrook/Bonsall area.
Moss also serves clients in Escondido, Rancho Santa Fe, San Diego, Valley Center, and Vista. Representing clients in the acquisition and sale of both homes and investments, she always makes the client and their needs number one.
She still enjoys her work too. “I’m lucky to make a good living and help people at the same time,” Moss said.
