Lowdown on the Loews

People from all around the world want to settle in San Diego and the Loew family is no exception. After spending some time living in Oslo, Norway, in 2001 they heeded the suggestions of many in working their way toward Carmel Valley. Meadows Del Mar called Adam and Terri’s names. “After almost a year of investigating,” Terri explained, “we purchased the lot, and quickly began the process of our plans and building our dream home.”

Terri began her career at Thompson Hysell Engineers designing subdivisions. After five years she went on to operate her used car lot, Diablo Valley Auto Brokers, in Danville, CA. “I enjoyed the flexibility that allowed me to follow my true passion,” Terri shared, “riding and showing my Paint and Pinto-bred horses in the all-around events.” She was working in a sales position with UNUM Life Insurance in San Francisco when Adam enrolled her in 24 Hour Nautilus (predecessor to 24 Hour Fitness). About a year later, they had their first date.

Adam’s career has morphed from a focus on the “physical” fitness of the community to a view to its “fiscal” fitness. His executive career at 24 Hour Fitness brought them here from Europe, where he held many positions over 15 years, gravitating from vice president of sales and marketing (Europe) to vice president of operations for the Southwest Division and finally vice president of new club openings (USA). He left 24 Hour Fitness in 2008 to educate himself on the many facets of real estate. He is currently co-chair of the Luxury Committee on the Associate Leadership Council at Keller Williams Carmel Valley/Del Mar, helping lead the office of over 340 KW associates.

Twelve-year-old Taylor plays recreational soccer for the CVMS Sharks and enjoys showing her APHA/PtHA horse Lonsum Zipper. She has been riding and showing since she was three and this past summer showed at the Pinto World Championships in Tulsa, OK. She received one world championship, three reserve world championships, and four top fives. Ten-year-old Reagan is in fifth grade at Sage Canyon and also has an APHA/PtHA horse called Sunny’s Chocolate Zip. Reagan’s true passion is softball, and she plays for the North Shore Girls Softball League. She made an All Star team her first year out and hopes to play for SDSU one day.

Carmel Valley is the center of involvement for the family, where they enjoy sports, horses, volunteer work, and the outdoors. The Loews love calling Carmel Valley home, finding comfort in their neighborhood that allows them to pursue their varied interests and share them with the community.
