Dustine Gallagher

DustineI first visited California on a family vacation when I was 12. I loved it and never forgot it. Ten years later I packed my bags, drove alone across the country and headed for my new home in San Diego.

I built my new life here and while interning at the Public Defenders office I witnessed many displaced people. People without a place to live. It was a moment of realization that everyone deserves a safe space, a safe place…a home. This understanding became the catalyst for my transition into real estate.

A strong commitment to home is part of the foundation to a strong community. It is a challenge and a privilege to help every client find or sell a home. Many times over the years I have witnessed how one’s life begins to flourish when one connects to a place. Positive energy starts flowing and life becomes fun & exciting!
My other interests include yoga, which I believe helps create a balanced life, weight lifting, which keeps me strong, the sun and water sports, boating and my rescued fur babies!
