Testimonials

“Karen has been our local expert for the past 10 years, helping us with a purchase, a sale and management of two
investment properties. When it came time for us to move here from Illinois, Karen made the long distance transaction
a complete breeze with her in-depth knowledge of the area and California real estate process. It is without
hesitation I recommend Karen Hickman as the go-to real estate professional in San Diego.”
-Kim Neapole, 2 purchases & sales

“In the past four years I have worked with Karen on three real estate transactions. I trust her implicitly and she
is an expert at what she does. I know that every transaction will be handled perfectly because she actually cares
about her work and hard work never scares her. I guarantee success to anyone who works with Karen!”

“I am writing a recommendation for Karen, but more importantly than anything I write is the fact that I have used her to purchase 2 houses and have referred her to several friends....that says enough! Her energy and passion for what she does is contagious! She listens to us, understands what our likes and dislikes are, and ultimately saved us a lot of time in the process and helped us find the perfect home! Every time we would go with Karen to look at places, we had fun!!! She made a stressful experience a lot more enjoyable. And, probably most important...especially since my wife and I are anal accountants...she has a tremendous amount of patience! I would recommend her in a heartbeat!”

I know that every transaction will be handled perfectly because she actually cares about her work and hard work never scares her. I guarantee success to anyone who works with Karen. I have worked with other realtors before and Karen surpasses all by a mile in her service, her expertise, her professionalism and her work ethic. I never hesitate to refer people to Karen as I know there is no one else who will do a better job than her. I look forward to working with her again on another project soon. When I know I can work with the best, there is no other choice."
