About Monique Motley

My family moved to San Diego from Long Beach when I was only three years old, so I consider myself a San Diego native. Growing up in Scripps Ranch with four sisters was very eventful! At the time Scripps Ranch was ripe for development and as a family we often spent our weekends touring model homes. I’ve loved viewing homes since I was a young child, and I simply adore connecting people, so when I was exploring a career change Real Estate seemed like a great fit for me.

After graduating Scripps Ranch High School where I was part of a championship basketball team, I was offered a full scholarship to CSULA. Shortly after I ended up back in San Diego, playing basketball for San Diego Mesa College while earning my Associates Degree. Upon receiving my AA and choosing to hang up my high tops, I decided to move to San Fransisco and pursue my dreams of working in hospitality. I worked with acclaimed chefs, five star five diamond hotels, master sommeliers, catering companies and hot restaurants.

Forever homesick, my sister was pregnant with her first child and the first Motley Grandchild and asked me to be her godmother. That was my motivation to move back to San Diego for good in 2001.

In 2004 I sought out my Esthetician license. After working and assisting in the opening of a premier downtown spa, I opened my own skincare shop in the neighborhood of South Park. I built my business from scratch and gained the respect and trust of upwards of 200 clients over the years. I was and still am passionate about organic skincare, herbal supplements and internal skincare health. In 2012 I received a Certified Clinical Master Herbalist certificate from The Natural Healing Institute in Encinitas, CA. To this day I still use my knowledge and skills in that arena. It comes especially handy when you have a child to practice on! After selling my skincare business in 2015 I pursued a full time career in Real Estate.

I’ve lived in many great San Diego communities besides my childhood homes in Scripps Ranch including Golden Hill, South Park, University Heights, Mission Valley, and North Park. Last year my husband and I bought a wonderful home on a half acre in North Encanto that we adore.

After years of experience I have an extensive team of professionals to assist you in whatever you may need. I work with local lenders to get you the best rate possible whether you are a first time home buyer, a seasoned investor or you need to refinance and have a lengthy list of vendors to assist you after your purchase or to prepare your home to sell.

Through my exuberance for Real Estate and my meticulous eye for detail, I have developed a large clientele of delighted homeowners and sellers. But more than that, I have made wonderful friends of them all, and have built lasting relationships with all of them, and I’d like to do the same for you!
