Team reviews

Karen is very knowledgeable, has immense experience in the market and is a true professional. Karen first did an intake interview with us to help us figure out what we are looking for and what is a deal breaker for us. After that, she only shared with us postings that fit that description. After each house we saw, she asked what we did like and what we didn't about it. If there was something specific we didn't like, she made sure no other house we visited would have that feature. That is true professionalism, her listening to her customers and doing all that work to make sure our preferences were always the main priority. We have received amazing legal advice from Karen too. She was always in our corner, telling us the truth about the good and the bad she saw with each property. Hearing these things from a professional was so helpful for us. Karen is an amazing negotiator and her diplomacy is unmatched. She has saved us a lot of money on our home and a lot of work we would have otherwise had to do ourselves. Her keen eye for details and her passion to fight for her customers has truly saved us thousands of dollars. I would whole heartedly recommend Karen to anyone who wants to find their ideal home fast and with true support and guidance from a professional with decades of experience in the market !

Sold a home in 2014 in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA 92117.

We were under educated and worried we didn't know enough about selling. But with such great recommendations from neighbor's who had trusted Karen Hickman with the sell of their homes, we decided to see what she knew. Karen gave us HONEST and EXPERIENCED advise that turned into great ideas to sell our home. We listen to her ideas on how to properly show the highlights of our home. Boy did it work! We got what we wanted in a fast sell and had no hesitation in signing with Karen to assist in buying our new home. With the same listening skills and passion for her work, we were in our home and happy we listened to reviews. You have a Pro at your fingers tips. Thanks Karen!  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Bay Ho, San Diego, CA.

Karen is fantastic as a selling and a buying agent. She was the selling agent Seven years ago when we bought our condo and she was so impressive with her follow up on our property over th years until we sold, there was no other agent we even bothered to consider. We just sold our condo with her at the helm of negotiations an bought our dream house with a faster than lightning close that Karen piloted with negotiations skills that most agents would only give a family member. Call her. Know your best interests are at the forefront of this exceptional professional.  More Less
