My name is Tina Balch. I'm originally from the Philippines, and I came to the United States in 1997. I graduated from college in 1994, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing; however, I followed a different calling in pharmaceutical sales. In 2001, I bumped into a good friend who introduced me to, and encouraged me to enter the world of real estate. The beginning of my career in real estate eventually led to the end of my stint in pharmaceutical, in 2002.

I started part-time as a loan officer, and I discovered that I enjoyed it, a lot. In my wildest dream, I never would have imagined I would become a Realtor. I believe things happen for a very good reason, and I'm thankful that God had a much better plan for me. I studied nursing because I wanted to help people. And, helping people is the reason I love real estate. Not only is it gratifying to know that I'm helping my clients with their specific needs, I'm also honored that my clients have placed their trust in me, when making a major decision in their lives. There is no greater compliment, than when I receive a referral from a client, who has become a friend.

My business is thriving because of the referrals that continue to come my way from family and
friends.

On the fun side, I love spending time with my kids, Katrina (10), and Titus (8). My kids occupy most of my time, and I love every minute of it. They have so much energy, and it's all I can do to keep up. It's just easy to go with the flow –  Ice Skate, Bowling, Barnes and Noble, and frequent flyer to Edward Cinema. And for myself, if I could, I would dive every other day. If that weren't enough,I also dream of having a recording studio, so I can record a Christian song, and I would love to travel around the world.

My other passions are, Gawad Kalinga; We Are One Filipino; Convoy of Hope; and, the Community Bible Church.

My husband, Tress, and I own Happy Sushi restaurant as well as Catering & Events Company, located on Mira Mesa Blvd. If you're craving great sushi and delish local Hawaiian food, drop in to enjoy amazing food and friendly service.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Skyline, San Diego, CA.
      What an awesome realtor!

      Tina was recommended to me by an old classmate and she delivered! She walked me through the sale of my parents' home from start to finish and stuck by me, even after I ran into legal issues that prevented me from selling the home the first time around. Once I took care of the title issues, Tina was there to support me once again, and we had an offer in lesss than a week!

      Tina was very familiar with the area, provided me with a list of comps and helped to price our home just right!

      I live in another city, and one might think that this would be an issue, but it wasn't! Tina constantly communicated with me via phone, text, and e-mail. She even made it convenient for me to sign all of my documents on line! In addition, she provided me with numerous resources including names and numbers for terminte companies, handymen for repairs, and even real estate attorneys to help with unforeseen title issues.

      The stress and grief of losing my mother and having to sell my childhood home was lessened by Tina's hard work. She went above and beyond my expectations and made the entire process as easy as pie. I would recommend Tina to anyone who desires first class service delivered with a smile and a warm heart. What a blessing to me and my family!

      Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista, CA.
      Tina Balch is my realtor for life! She’s one of the best out there! Believe me, I know! I should know because my husband and I were able to not only buy a home but also sold one through her help. We were able to avoid a short sale because of her good marketing skills and strategies. She is aggressive in selling your home and also aggressive in finding you the right home at the right price that fits your budget and needs. She’s on top of everything! Tina and her Team Balch are indeed “The Team That Friends Trust and Recommend”. Since they leave their clients with good experience, they keep getting recommended... and that speaks highly of them! Not only are they professionals who make things happen but more importantly, like good friends, they really genuinely look out for your best interest!  MoreLess

      Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $475K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.
      One word, two syllables: AWESOME... That's right; that's Tina Balch! Tina was referred to me by a friend who helped her find her dream home. The first time I met Tina, it was very impressive... She was very professional and I liked when she gave that homebuying 101; it was very helpful especially for a first time homebuyer like me. I was a happy client: From the e-signing, barney-style question and answer, home inspection, and most especially on the day I pick up the key...

      I am truly happy and blessed for Tina... I didn't just gained an agent, but a friend for life! Much mahalo, my dear!!!
