Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.3M in Poway, CA.
My wife and I worked with Cynthia Elizondo during our relocation from the Washington, D.C. area. Of course, we were clueless on San Diego real estate and were very concerned about schools for our teenage daughter. Cynthia address all our concerns, narrowed our search to meet our needs and found the perfect house for us. Additionally, she skillfully assisted with the negotiations and supported the purchase of our home in every way possible. Cynthia is nothing short of AMAZING. Call her for your next real estate transaction.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.225M in Black Mountain Ranch, San Diego, CA.
Karen is very professional and easy to work with. She was very responsive to phone calls, texts, and e-mails. She knows the Poway area very very well. Highly recommended. Not only did she help sell our house, but also helped us in finding a new house (to be built) and also helped us find a house to rent in the interval.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.45M in Black Mountain Ranch, San Diego, CA.
Karen is not only a seasoned realtor, but she is one of the nicest people we have ever known. She is extremely knowledgeable of the local market, and uses all of the latest internet tools to maximize your exposure. She is a good listener, striving to understand your personal situation and goals, then translates that into an action plan that quickly leads to a successful conclusion. She is responsive, thorough, and is on top of all the latest trends, forms and processes, and a great negotiator on both the sell end and the buy. Karen helped us fulfill our goal to sell our home and successfully find and buy our new home in less than 6 weeks, greatly exceeding our expectations. Highly recommended.

Sold a home in 2012.
Head and shoulders above the rest! Karen Pado is the best realtor I have ever worked with, (following 6 prior moves). She was attentive and listened to what our selling and buying needs were. She gave helpful advice for work to be done while preparing our home to sell and marketed the home successfully while it was on the market. Karen was very adept at working with buyers agents to balance scheduling buyer showings that worked within our routines minimizing inconvenience. During the negotiation and escrow she made herself available and worked hard to facilitate the process. In terms of buying a new home Karen understood what we were looking for and did not waste our time showing us homes that did not meet our criteria. She stayed on top of what was available and got us in to see the home we purchased quickly after it went on the market. Once again she made the entire negotiation and escrow process a breeze. Karen is a pleasure to work with and genuinely cares about her clients. In summary, I highly recommend Karen to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in the North County of San Diego.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in San Marcos, CA.
My husband just started his new job out here in San Diego and we fell in love with the area so we decided to start looking for homes to make this our new permanent residence. We came across Karen Pado online (sorry I cannot remember the site) and contacted her right away in hopes we can find something around the area. I was so surprised how understanding (and patient) she was with us throughout this whole process. Thankfully we stumbled across this beautiful town-home and I fell in love. Karen was on the ball worked her magic and asked all the right questions which lead to us getting a counter offer and then eventually escrow. We officially closed April 25th 2013 and we couldn't be happier. We had learned a lot from Karen through this whole experience and I know if it weren't for her dedication and know-how we wouldn't have gotten this far. I highly recommend Karen Pado if you are looking for a hardworking, determined, intelligent Realtor to represent you. I know that years down the line that we will not hesitate to contact her again when it comes time to sell and buy another home. She made our dreams a reality for our growing family. Thank you Karen!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $375K in Poway, CA.
Karen Pado is, in a word, amazing. When my husband learned that his job was being relocated to Massachusetts, we followed my coworker's glowing recommendation and listed our home for sale with Karen. From day one, she was the consummate professional. She really knew the market, and knew what price she would be able to get for our home. Her marketing plan was excellent. She was very easy to talk to, and I trusted her completely. And to this day I have no doubt that we would have sold right away, if we had followed her suggestions!

Unfortunately, we had to list our home for a higher amount, because of what we still owed on our mortgage. And as housing prices continued to slip, we ended up in a situation where we had to pursue a short sale.

Karen was right with us every step of the way, rolling with the punches and sharing her invaluable insight. The "short" sale process ended up taking about seven months from start to finish, and it involved dealing with one lender, in particular, that seemed intent on killing the deal from day one. Karen and I talked on an almost daily basis this entire time, exchanging information and discussing our next steps. It was such a stressful experience, and one that might have led other realtors to drop their clients. Honestly, if something could have gone wrong, it did (through no fault of Karen's)! But Karen was determined to see it through, and for that I am so thankful! At one point, I was certain that the whole thing was going to fall through, but we ended up closing on June 8, 2012. Hallelujah!

Simply put... if you are looking for a realtor, Karen Pado can't be beat. She's smart, assertive, knows the ins and outs of real estate, stays on top of things, and is on your side from start to finish. I couldn't have asked for a better agent, and can't recommend her enough. Thank you, Karen!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $450K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.
My wife and I recently decided to sell our home and move to a new location. While we were nervous about selling a home in the current market, we were very comfortable with Karen’s marketing plan and recommended sales price. She also provided detailed market analysis of the area in where we were interested in purchasing as well as the area where we were selling. We sold our house below average market time, within estimated sales price, and were able to move into our dream house all within our planned budget. Karen Pado’s dedication and commitment to her customers is remarkable. Karen Pado is also very personable, knowledgeable, and extremely professional. My wife and I always felt that she had our best interest as priority at all times. She was always available to answer questions, address concerns, and handled problems in an expedient and efficient manner. From our previous experiences in Real Estate, I can say that Karen is by far a top notch Agent. Trust is an important factor in Agent selection when selling and/or purchasing a home, especially in the current Real Estate market situation. My wife and I always felt that Karen was honest, realistic, and ethical. Karen has earned out trust whole heartily. This is the second purchase in which my wife and I chose Karen Pado as our agent. We feel like she is a part of the family now and she will always be our selection from now on to represent us in any future Real Estate transactions. I give Karen Pado an outstanding recommendation for anyone in the market to purchase or sell Real Estate.

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2011 in Poway, CA.
Karen Pado is pure and simply in a class of her own in the world of real estate. Over the last year we were in the humbling position of putting our home on the market, even though we did not want to sell. Due to the loss of a stable income and financial hardship, we were left with no other choice. Karen Pado was there for us throughout this process. She guided us every step of the way. Her job was to sell our home, even tho we were kicking and screaming about it. When our money-making situation changed, and our home hadn't sold, Karen supported our persistent efforts to get a very unlikely home loan modification, while at the same time, keeping watch for a buyer. The clock continued to move forward in our unforgiving economy and deadlines were in constant motion. Karen delicately kept us informed with current updates, cautioning us as we continued with the grueling tasks of attaining a loan modification. Ultimately that is what happened...we were one of the rare, but fortunate ones to have a bank agree to it. When that "Divine Intervention" took place, Karen was faced with the reality of having put a year of hard work into selling our home for naught. At the same time, she was congratulating us on our success. We challenge anyone who thinks they could have handled our difficult situation in a better way. Through the years, I have seen Karen's unwavering dedication to her clients. We would go back to Karen in a heart beat, if ever we should want to sell. Over the past couple of weeks, we have had several daily calls from local relators looking to entise us to interview them as "the relator who will finally sell our home," now that it is off the market. No thank you...we found our past and future relator, and her name is Karen Pado. We invite anyone in the area seeking a relator to give her a call...she will represent and not disappoint. We gauranteee that you will meet a highly skilled business woman of integrity, honesty, and confidence, as she helps you sell or purchase real estate. And when all is said and done, you will also find a warm and endearing friend.

Vicky is exactly what everyone is looking for in a Real Estate Agent...knowledgeable, prompt, reliable, honest, organized, and thorough. She constantly keeps in touch, providing nothing but the best service. We had very high standards when choosing an agent and we were so happy with her. She really listens to what you are looking for and is there for the entire process. We chose her to help us purchase our new home and to also sell our current house. The night before our current house went on the market, she was helping me stage and didn't leave until everything was finished. She is so dedicated to her work and really ensures her clients are happy. There are a lot of agents out there.....not many like Vicky. I promise, you will not be disappointed if you choose her.
