Putting Down Roots in 92024

In 2009, Rob and Renata (Renny) Bloom were looking to move away from downtown San Diego in search of a more family-oriented community. They settled on the Village Creek neighborhood of Encinitas…and just in time. Soon after the move, their first child was born, a son named Marco. This past May, the family welcomed their second child, a little girl named Marcela. With their family having doubled in size since their days living downtown, Rob and Renny are confident they made the right decision in choosing 92024 as their home, and are enjoying every minute of the beachy, family-friendly community.

t.f.-9771Rob, a commercial real estate broker and vice president at Duhs Commercial, grew up in Laguna Beach. He attended college at the University of San Diego and later completed his MBA at San Diego State University. Renny, who is a litigation attorney for Gordon & Rees, LLP, has dual citizenship in the United States and Mexico, but was raised in North County San Diego from the age of 10. She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara for her undergraduate degree and then University of San Diego School of Law where she received her Juris Doctorate and graduated in the top 10% of her class.

Clearly education is important to the Bloom family – a reason, they explained, they chose to live in 92024. “We chose to live [in Encinitas] because the public schools are excellent,” said Renny. They also liked the area for its family-friendly vibe. “We love that there is a greenbelt, park and pool directly across the street from our house for Marco (and one day Marcela) to play in and explore,” offered Renny. As an added benefit, the Bloom house is close to both sets of grandparents. “Renny’s mom, Sue, lives in Carlsbad and Rob’s parents live in Orange County,” explained the Blooms. “Marco goes to the Encinitas Public Library for story time (and to catch a glimpse of the trains) every Monday with his grandma Sue.”[pullquote align=”right”]“We chose to live [in Encinitas] because the public schools are excellent.”


Other local spots the family likes to frequent are the San Diego Botanic Gardens, Moonlight Beach and Swami’s Beach. “We like to put Marco in the BOB stroller and go running at Swami’s Beach on the weekends,” noted Renny. The family is excited to now have baby Marcela join them during their beach visits and on their many other outings around town.
