Bought a home in 2013.
I found Betsy on Zillow by a lucky chance. I was searching for an investment property, and came across a home that was listed by Betsy on Zillow. A simple phone call about the status of that property turned into an hour-long conversation. Betsy is a book of information about how to look for the right investment based on your goals. In my years of dealing with many real estate brokers, I have not come across anyone with the same caliber of knowledge about the different real estate markets in San Diego Country. Betsy's real estate insight and passion puts her into a class of her own.

I am not the type that will trust someone easily. But Betsy's manner, honesty and expertise during our initial phone call and the first face-to-face meeting won my confidence and trust in her ability to help us find what we need. Within a short 1.5 months, she helped us find and purchase a perfect investment property that wouldn't be possible without her expertise. My lucky call to Betsy was the best thing that I ever did. She'll be the one I call first for our next real estate transaction!

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.
We looked for a home for almost 2 years and went through a whole host of agents and brokers. Suffice to say, we lost several deals at different stages of the process due to inexperience and incompetence. The experience was completely different when we met Betsy Heller. She is extremely well versed in real estate and understands all the nuances needed to eventually close escrow. She walked us through the entire process with patience and diligence. I knew I was working with the right person when Betsy began performing the duties of the selling agent in order to help us close the deal. She also knows a variety of other qualified professionals, such as contractors, inspectors, roofers etc... This was immensely helpful after we moved into our new home. She is still the first person I call when I need a trustworthy referral. We were lucky enough to work with Betsy on a second transaction when we sold our condo. This property was very difficult to sell due litigation between the HOA and the builder. She was confident she would sell it by the end of the year and in true form she delivered. I highly recommend Betsy Heller without reservation. She is a great real estate professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Carlsbad, CA.
I presented Betsey with a very very short timeframe in which to find me home in move in ready condition with very specific requirements. Betsey helped me reach that goal and has a very valuable group of expert mortgage professionals to help you obtain the best rates possible.

Bought a home in 2013.
Betsy has a quantitative mind, which she uses to her client's advantage in analyzing the investment potential of real property. The choice of homes and neighborhoods are overwhelming, but she discussed the potential and drawbacks of each one we brought up. This helped us to narrow the search to a reasonable size.

She is also a seasoned negotiator, which provides peace of mind in getting through a transaction successfully. Our deal was complicated by many issues having to do with the seller and many of the ancillary service providers involved in closing a house purchase. Betsy helped us get the best deal and service terms possible in light of the challenges we faced.

Betsy is flexible and can attenuate her style to suit her clients' needs. If you want to break out the spreadsheets she can do that. If you want to talk about house aesthetics she can do that too. We asked for both. If you have Betsy as your real estate broker, you are in good hands. She is a gem.

Showed home in 2013.
I am a first time home buyer and going through all the frustrations that come along with it. I wasn't getting anywhere with my first agent and was referred to Betsy through a work friend. After meeting her and talking with her, I knew why I was going around in circles! Betsy takes the time to explain the complexities of real estate but also takes the time to listen to what you want in a home. She gives you different options and really strives to help you find the place to call your own.

I am so excited to be working with her. Let the adventures begin!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $800K in Encinitas, CA.
Betsy was our agent for our recent dream home purchase in Encinitas. Her ability to negotiate, and represent us, through thick and thin, was stellar. We would have never completed this home purchase without her skill and expertise. We would recommend her to anyone, and would use her again without question. One of the best things about Betsy is her ability to answer questions, and make the extra effort with grace and style. Don't think twice - call her!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Escondido, CA.
Betsy was more than a realtor to us when we were trying to find a large single family home with a big backyard and no HOA, she was a friend and trusted advisor. It was easy to find her using Zillow, and we were so grateful to be put in touch with someone whose opionion we value and respect. The icing on the cake was when Betsy negotiated the price of our home down by $20K in the final hour...thanks you Betsy!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.
I am so happy that I worked with Betsy Heller as a real estate agent! As a first time homebuyer I was very worried, and had hundreds of questions. Betsy was able to answer them and also took the care and time to really made sure that I understood what I was getting into.

She not only has great insight into the market, but also has really understands the importance of drawing up really good contracts and implementing them. In my case, we had an issue with the selling agent, and she was able to deal with that situation with great professionalism. Betsy is not afraid to give you her real opinion on a property, she is not there just to pressure you. She also really considers your long-term plans and big picture of this purchase, as it is a really important decision to make!

I would absolutely, highly recommend Betsy Heller as a real estate professional.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Ridgeview-Webster, San Diego, CA.
Betsy is an awesome real estate agent. She is really knowledgable and is very helpful. It took my boyfriend and I almost 9 months to finally found a home and the entire time Betsy was really patient. I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Scripps Ranch, San Diego, CA.
I was so excited!! We've got it!!! Betsy uses her magic again and got us a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo with washer/dryer in unit at Scripps that you can walk to Trader Joe's! This our 2nd property with her help and as usual, she's always got it! Our goal is to get properties with our comfort payment levels, live in and/or rent them out as investment. When market goes up, we can either cash it out or trade it for more profitable investment. It's a slow process, but yet, the most steady and safest if you have a mentor to help you and guide you. Well, guess what, that mentor is Betsy.

With tough market like this, some people can't even find a house within a year! Yet, the price is going up! So we were really nervous about if we can even get a place! We have been only looking since mid-Dec 2012, which is only 1.5 month! We did placed many offers and usually get bid down by someone who has cash, and paid more than us. This time, the asking price is $228K, and Betsy was able to persuade them to sell it to us for $255K, and with a payment plan that works for us! Which you know that, for sure someone has put a better offer out, even with cash. It wouldn't a suprise that someone beat us.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that it's not easy to find someone amazing like that. Anyone works with her is just a bless!

If you really considering about buying a home, or even just want to understand more or learn more. I would highly recommend you to meet up with Betsy, ask for her expertise and help. You will be really glad that you met her and you would recommend her to your friends, just like me. She is always on top of her industry and she is always honest about her business. There is NO way we could get a place without her help!
