Bought a home in 2014.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Kara on the purchase of my first property, a condo in North Pacific Beach. After seeing a “coming soon” sign in the area I was looking, within a day, Kara got me in to view the place before anyone else, and also created the game plan for exactly how I was going to get the property. She was even able to convince the listing agent and the seller to reduce the listing price based on the market comps. The seller did create the hurdle of wanting the list the property, and not for another 2 weeks, but Kara was on top of the whole process and got my offer accepted within 36 hours of the property being listed. There are clearly a lot of real estate agents out there, and Kara can certainly get done the tough deals with the best of them, but I would mostly choose Kara because of her honesty. She doesn't have her own goals in mind, and won’t push you in a direction you don’t want to go. She honestly has your needs and future at the forefront of every decision, and wants you to find a property that you will love. So for her keen ability to get deals done, and honesty to keep the home buying process very personal, I would highly recommend Kara.

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA 92109
Kara and I have had the pleasure of working together on quite a few transactions here in San Diego. She's a highly successful Realtor based out of Pacific Beach, but services the entire county, and she'll even go elsewhere too!

As a business partner of hers, I get to see how she works with clients on a regular basis. She's extremely knowledgeable, super responsive, and is a fantastic negotiator. I work with LOTS of Realtors in San Diego, and there's no question that Kara's service, knowledge and experience is far above and beyond what most Realtors in San Diego posses.

I would not hesitate to hire Kara as your Real Estate professional.

Bought a home in 2014.
We very fortunate to run across Kara in our seach for an investment property in Pacific Beach, she truly knows the market and has many "beach" connections which is invaluable when you are focusing in that area. Our criteria was very specific and a bit of a challenge as we had looked for about half a year with another realtor (to no avail) before getting in contact with Kara. She spent a great deal of time doing extensive off-market searches and finally managed to negotiate a deal for us to purchase a multi-family complex. She represented both us and the seller which presented some challenges but she handled everything with great skill and composure. She is very good at keeping you informed and answering all your questions - which I had a lot of. You can't go wrong if you have Kara on your side (or, as in our case, on both sides).

Bought a home in 2013.
I rarely write reviews on sites, however, I am making an exception in this case because of the excellent service that Kara provided me in buying my home. First, let me frame up the number of things that Kara had to contend with in my transaction: 1 – I was a first time homebuyer. 2 – I was relocating from the East Coast (Charlotte, NC, center of the city/skyscrapers) to the West Coast (San Diego, CA, beach/coastal area). 3 – Related to #2, I had limited ability to fly back and forth to view properties given my schedule, and 4 – A lender was involved (i.e. it was not an all cash deal, which always complicates things). As time went on, it became clear that Kara was supremely knowledgeable about the area, which is important because 1-2 blocks in Pacific Beach can make a huge difference in the environment you will be living in. Also, Kara’s advice during the entire process was superior to anyone else (i.e. family, friends, etc.). I say that because, if you are involved in a transaction similar to mine, the best advice that I can give you is to prioritize Kara’s opinion over all others, as, in hindsight, I could have saved time early on in the process by doing so. Furthermore, and this is particularly important if you have limited ability to see properties, Kara has great taste and knows what is possible within the price range that you are working with. I quickly discovered this when I had viewed a few places that she had given me opinions on. My confidence in her taste was important because I placed the initial offer on the actual place that I ultimately bought without my seeing it in person (trusting Kara’s opinion). Finally, she was able to negotiate to get me an awesome place across the street from the beach in the price range that I was looking for, so she will be able to fight for the price that you want. I highly recommend Kara, and am willing to give a verbal recommendation as well to any of her potential clients (get in touch with her and she can provide my info).

We found Kara to be a true real estate professional. Her knowledge of our local area/market is outstanding. She was able to quickly figure out what we were looking for and then found numerous properties for us to look at. She was always available and quickly responded to our questions/concerns right through closing. We highly recommend Kara to anyone buying or selling property in the San Diego area. We would definitely use Kara again!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Mission Bay Park, San Diego, CA.
We met Kara while she was selling our neighbors condo in Feb. 2013. We were wanting to sell our unit too, but were not encouraged by the housing market. Kara kept in contact and informed us of the housing market trend going upwards. We finally listed our condo on July 21st. We received an all cash offer (at our bottom line price) on Aug. 9th and closed escrow on Aug. 21st. It doesn't get any better than that. We can't even imagine going through this sale without Kara. Kara demonstrated complete knowledge of the market trends, is very experienced, honest, has a strong work ethic, works hard for her clients and she is genuine, positive and charming. On a scale of 1-10 we would rate her a 20!!!

Kara was wonderful. I was 3,000 miles away, so I really needed a professional on my side at the location. In my case there were quite a few issues with the property and Kara easily and quickly handled all of them. I recommend her highly! She is great.
