Rande and his wife, Erin Rousey-Turner are residents of Del Mar. They are very active in the community where Rande’s two boys attend school. Rande was instrumental in starting The Miracle League of San Diego, providing children with special needs the opportunity to play baseball in an organized league in Del Mar, CA. He currently is a board member of United Cerebral Palsy – San Diego.   

Rande is a member of National Association of Realtors, California Association of Realtors, San Diego Association of Realtors and Real Estate Brokerage Association of La Jolla (REBA) and has consistently been one of the top 10 producing realtors in the North San Diego Coastal luxury real estate market.


Erin grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, and received her Bachelor of Arts-Journalism/Graphic Design at The University of Georgia.  Before moving to Southern California in 2006, she was a managing partner in a commercial real estate company, sole proprietor of O’Connor Design, an interior design studio and owner of British Colonial Imports, a furniture design and import business with manufacturing in India and China.

After receiving her MBA from San Diego State University in 2011, Erin decided to join Rande full-time in the real estate business.  She currently handles all of the marketing and day-to-day operations of the company as well as assists with client needs.

Erin has a passion for animals and spends her free time rescuing dogs from high kill shelters in San Bernardino and Riverside counties.  She and Rande have two pups, Abbe, a wheaten terrier, and Koa, a dog she rescued from the shelter but that she just couldn’t adopt out (we call that a rescue failure).  She owns and competes her horse, “My Kingdom” in three day equestrian events and jumper shows.
