Team reviews

Betsy was a fantastic realtor. I was a first time home buyer with limited knowledge of the process. She was very helpful in explaining the process and providing great feedback/reviews on the several properties we viewed.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.625M in Encinitas, CA.

Betsy and team were amazing from start to finish. I had a phone chat with her as a first contact (she was a referral from a friend) and Betsy lined up 12 viewings the following weekend. Aside from getting us in and all the logistics, one of the biggest services Betsy provided was 'reading between the lines' on all the comments we made during the viewings. She very quickly understood what we were really looking for, and helped us understand it too by always challenging us to prioritize the houses we saw and constantly think about what's important and what isn't. Although we anticipated the house search to take months, we ended up putting an offer down on a house we loved, and the offer was accepted! There was a competing offer for more money, but the sellers chose us due to a couple of minor but very strategic concessions Betsy urged us to make in the offer. Those turned out to be exactly what the sellers were looking for and that's why we beat out a higher offer. Another incredibly important service Betsy offered us was an incredibly detailed knowledge of how much things cost to fix or renovate. Being trained as an engineer and having been in the business for a very long time, Betsy's seen it all and has been spot on with all her estimates. It's like having a contractor and realtor all in one, which is really helpful when looking at homes that aren't completely turn-key. We really ended up with our dream home in a dream location, and none of it would have been even remotely possible with Betsy! And if all that weren't enough, Betsy's team was incredible to work with during escrow, and helped us close a very short escrow on time, which was no small feat! Couldn't recommend anyone more!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $250K in Lakeside, CA.

Betsy helped us sell a distressed property in Lakeside that was part of a trust that I administered. It was a difficult task for me, however Betsy was a champ at getting us through the process to a successful conclusion. There were many challenges along the way and Betsy stuck with us in helping us get this done. Betsy was very knowledgable about the area and was able to get me a good price for the property. She has great contacts that she worked with to help us get the property ready to sell. Bravo Zulu Betsy

Bought a home in 2014 in Solana Beach, CA 92075.

My husband and I have bought a good amount of homes and Betsey is one of our top most knowledgeable brokers. She knew what she was doing and how to get the deal done. She truly worked for our best interest and made it very easy and stress free during escrow. I would highly recommend her to our friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.2M in Cardiff By The Sea, CA.

Betsy is by far is one of the best agents my wife and I have worked with here in San Diego. When it comes to understanding specific real estate markets in San Diego to having total comprehension of the purchase agreements that both the Seller and Buyer sign to walking us through each step of the home buying experience from writing the offer to working with our loan officer to complete our loan application, Betsy knew it all and made it very easy for us to help us purchase our first home. If you are out there looking for an agent to work with, stop no further and go with Betsy. You will be completely satisfied. She is not only extremely professional, but her knowledge base in the home buying experience will make you glad you had went with her. We cannot thank Betsy enough for everything she has done for my wife, daughter and I in the purchase of our first home. We look forward to working with Betsy again when it comes time for us to purchase or sell our next home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Solana Beach, CA.

Betsy helped get my rental property ready for sale and sold it very quickly with multiple offers. Betsy helped find a 1013 exchange property, assisted in the financing and purchase of a multiple rental unit that has worked out very well. I could not recommend anyone any higher as to her professional skills and real estate expertise. A very satisfied client.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $775K in University City, San Diego, CA.

She helped us buy and negotiate a flipped home in San Diego. We bought our first home with her as a foreclosure and it was a great deal and made money on our "sweat equity."

Sold a home in 2011 in Neffsville, East Hempfield Township, PA 17601.

Betsy helped me sell my home out-of-state! We rented a home here in San Diego county to be closer to family. She found and interviewed 3 real estate agents and helped us choose one. Then she helped us review the market analysis and get the home painted and staged for sale. When offers came in, Betsy helped us review them and counter so we got the best price. It was great to have someone local helping us through this sale.
