" Isabel was a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable, thorough, trustworthy and professional. She was able to negotiate a complicated sales process coordinating with a difficult, non-responsive property management company, the developers and a sales force that was new. I would highly recommend her services in your search for a property. " - kwal
" Isabel tuned in quickly to our likes and dislikes. This made the possible properties ones we would consider and saved us time in the process. Her knowledge of the neighborhoods was extremely helpful. Her ability to explain the process at all steps kept us fully aware of what to expect. All seeking a new home should hope for someone with Isabel's expertise to assist. " - humblyabode
" Isabel provided terrific service when my husband and I were looking for a place in the Carlsbad/Oceanside area. We needed a place to live several weeks out of the month while we opened a business and she worked with us until we found the perfect location. She even continued to look after we had decided to `settle` for a place that really didn't meet all our needs. The final location we selected was initially out of our budget but she felt we needed to see it before we made our final decision and we fell in love with it. She negotiated the price for us so that it was in budget and we couldn't be happier. She was always pleasant and remains a friend to us. " - kespinosa
" Isabel is attentive to detail and shows great patience when I change my mind. Not only a good real estate agent, but I feel as if she is now a friend. Thank you, Isabel " - Donna Benesch
" Isabel was a terrific resource for me when I was helping a friend find a new home. The situation required we act quickly and Isabel jumped into action the day I called and I was looking at places that afternoon. A week later the purchase process began. She was professional, informed and resourceful in her ideas for ways to help me! I can't say enough good things about her, it was a great experience! Highly recommend Isabel to find your next home!
