Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Lakeside, CA.
Working with Eugenia Garcia, Jeff Carlson, & Kevin Wunderly, was such a pleasure. I felt like family, always being taken care of. Eugenia & Kevin working to sell our home & help us get our new home. Then Jeff, handling Inspections, Escrow, Etc. What a team. Eugenia and her team explained everything step by step, making the transactions go very smoothly. There were no loose ends, they get the job done, extremely well. You can feel rest assured that they are getting you the best deal available. Eugenia, Jeff, & Kevin will always be considered good friends. I would recommend Eugenia Garcia & Associates to everyone I know.

Eugenia and Jeff are very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable. They provided me with sound advice and followed up promptly on all my emails and phone calls. They did a nice job negotiating and guiding me to towards the right offer for my property.

Can't say enough good things about Eugenia! I completely lucked out when a friend of a friend recommended her. I was relocating from overseas to San Diego and had zero knowledge of the local market. Eugenia answered all my questions (the same day and usually within the hour), prioritized what I wanted in a new home (Good walk score, gym, reasonable HOA fees, etc), and set up a constantly updating list of properties I could view before the move to get a good idea of my price point and potential square footage.
Eugenia and her team worked with my schedule and showed me every property possible, starting the day after I arrived. When it came time, the digital signature forms made placing bids very easy and she took time to explain every "legalese" detail so I felt comfortable before signing.
Once the bid was accepted, Eugenia's husband Jeff took over and arranged the inspection, made sure all the timelines were met, and quickly handled a post-appraisal price negotiation which saved me $5,000.00! Jeff was a big help too in recommending good, local contractors so I could make needed repairs immediately after closing.
The home buying process could've easily been a nightmare, but I felt confident with Eugenia and Jeff looking after me and would gladly recommend them to friends, family, and strangers looking to buy a home in the San Diego area.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in North Park, San Diego, CA.
Eugenia and Jeff were a masterful duo. Eugenia is a great negotiator and gave us excellent advice throughout the sales process. She directed a huge amount of traffic to our listing and the process worked out just as she had said it would. Jeff then took on the closing process with an attention to detail that steered us through a complex simultaneous sale-and-purchase, on time and without any major difficulties.
Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $900K in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
Eugenia was one of the best agent's I have experienced. She is very customer oriented and friendly. She listened to the features my wife wanted for our new home. Her partner Jeff was terrific helping us with all the details once we had a deal in process. Jeff was great helping us find quality tradesmen to deal with issues we identified in the disclosure process. Overall this was a terrific buying experience and I would highly recommend this excellent team.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Bay Ho, San Diego, CA.
We loved working with Eugenia on the purchase of our first home. She was extremely knowledgeable, very responsive, and helped us strategize our offers and neighborhoods. This being a seller's market, we were often dealing with multiple-offer situations and others coming in above asking price. We just closed on a lovely home in Bay Ho (paid asking price), and we are overjoyed! I would highly recommend Eugenia and Jeff, and plan on telling all my friends and family how great our experience was.
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $850K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.
Eugenia and her husband Jeff are true professionals. My wife and I have bought and sold homes across the country many times over the years and worked with and know as friends many realtors. I can honestly say I have never worked with a more knowledgeable and hard working team. Eugenia worked with us over many months, not only showing us homes and areas in San Diego, but also helping us with advice on selling our home back in the mid-west. Every home hunting trip was scheduled perfectly to ensure we could see the right number of homes that fit us without wasting our time. Once we found the right place Eugenia handled the negotiation like a pro and we reached agreement quickly. From there Jeff helped us through the rest of the process and did an excellent job keeping things moving to ensure we closed on time. This would certainly be enough reason to work with this great team, but then you throw in that they are such nice people and so easy to work with, it makes them unbeatable!

I honestly do not know how to begin to explain how wonderful Eugenia and her husband, Jeff are. My husband Dave and I met Eugenia and instantly took a liking to her. She wanted to find us our perfect home and she did! Eugenia was always so patient with us as we took our time finding the right home. She was so kind and did not make us feel the pressure of having to buy a house right away. She took us to see a lot of houses and always worked around our crazy work schedule, which we really appreciated. Then when it came time to buy the actual home she went in and fought hard for us and got us a great deal! During this whole time her husband Jeff was working directly with Dave and I. He was giving us timelines in means to have all the money in Escrow on time, put us in contact with an insurance company, while also, making sure our mortgage sounded like a good option. Seriously above and beyond! These two are the most efficient, wonderful team. I have always heard that buying a home, especially your first one, can be a headache because you don’t know all the in’s and out’s. Eugenia and Jeff literally held our hand through the whole process, we couldn’t have done it without them!! They put us in touch with a painter, an electrician, a contractor, a gardener, and a cleaner. All important people to know when owning a house and instead of having to go online and read a bunch of reviews in hopes that these people might be trustworthy Eugenia and Jeff took all that off our minds and personally introduced us to them. When I say above and beyond I really do mean it. Even though we just bought the house I know if we ever need them for anything farther down the road they would always be there to help. On top of all this they are both some of the nicest people I have met in San Diego. I can defiantly say when we are looking to sell or buy our next home we will be calling these two!

I cannot say enough about Eugenia's ability to make selling a house as painless as possible. She provided information about available options (and likely outcomes) throughout the process; on two occasions her knowledge and ability resulted in the sale continuing when it might have stalled. Her judgment was excellent and even with a short anticipated escrow period (30 days), we closed 3 days early.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Talmadge, San Diego, CA.
Working with Eugenia was a great experience. My wife and I weren't quite sure what we were looking for, and Eugenia set up an automatic search that provided us with a continuous stream of listings in areas that we would not have been exposed to otherwise. It broadened our search parameters and ultimately led us to select a house in area that we hadn't considered initially. We couldn't be happier with the neighborhood. Eugenia was extremely knowledgeable and extraordinarily patient with the ups and downs and highs and lows of our search. We are grateful that she stuck with us and saw our search through to the end. We always felt that we were her first priority.
