“Thank you so much for your efforts representing me on this sale! The last minute thought to call Kelly for a second opinion before almost listing with another broker was the best decision I made. I could not imagine working with anyone else on this sale. I also have you to thank for a final price that is $50k higher than I was prepared to present to the tenant before your involvement. Your team far exceed my expectations throughout the entire sale process. From our initial call through closing, you made this entire process effortless. I was blown away by your communication, professionalism, efficiency, knowledge, enthusiasm and warmth along every step of the way. It is easy to see why you are the top realtors in the area and I could not think any more highly of your team. Thanks again for everything, you are the dream team!" -John M.

About Lisa

After graduating from UCSD, Lisa spent 12 years in the corporate world. She wanted to take her business development and client service skills in an entrepreneurial direction in 2006 when she began her Real Estate career. Lisa’s attention to detail and keen negotiation skills allowed her to excel very quickly. Lisa prides herself on truly listening and understanding her clients’ needs in order to most effectively service and represent them. Sometimes this means actually finding houses for her clients that they did not find on their own or introducing them to neighborhoods they had not considered. This is very rare when most clients find properties online. This ability comes from building relationships and understanding her clients, needs, wishes and requirements then applying those to her devoted study of the local market and inventory. Lisa has sold real estate in the coastal corridor between Del Mar and Oceanside with a particular emphasis on the Cardiff/ Encinitas marketplace representing both buyers and sellers. The majority of Lisa’s clients are repeat and referrals, so she goes where they go including Rancho Santa Fe, La Jolla, Downtown San Diego, Point Loma, La Costa, San Marcos, Scripps Ranch & Carmel Valley.

Kelly Howard met Lisa in 2008 on a transaction where he was the listing agent for an architecturally unique home and Lisa represented the buyer. They began to work as a team in 2009 combining their talents, commitment to clients and passion for real estate. Lisa resides in Encinitas where she has been since 1985 and realizes it is her great fortune to live and work in paradise and to assist her valued clients with decisions that affect the very heart of their lives….their homes.

In 14 + years working together, Lisa & Kelly have successfully navigated many complex transactions including bluff front, architecturally significant, new construction, vacant land, duplexes, those requiring  geotechnical analysis, probate, along with innumerable traditional single family home sales. They are skilled in guiding clients through the tricky timing of selling and buying when the sale is contingent for the purchase. They have countless resources, trades and vendors to make the process as seamless as possible for their clients.

Lisa is privileged to work with each and every client, bringing her expertise, attention to detail, keen negotiation strategies and enthusiasm to each transaction and interaction.  She feels blessed to live and work in paradise.
