Testimonials


Here is what some of our past clients have to say.


This letter is to express my gratitude over the services I have received from Steve Carlson of Coldwell Banker. I was very fortunate to have been connected with Steve after previously receiving services from two other real state agents with disappointing results. Mr. Carlson was able to prioritize the items that I found to be highest on my list in looking for a Condo. I felt pressured by the other real estate agents to go beyond my financial means and Mr. Carlson was able to find listing that was affordable and included the features I was looking for.

After looking long and hard at numerous listing we came across this condo that had all of my requirements and more, and also was reasonable in price. Mr. Carlson worked many long nights to ensure that my bid was complete and submitted as soon as possible. There were four other people interested in the condo and with his hard work and experience my bid was accepted. Once the condo went into escrow he continued worked hard to ensure that the process went smoothly and that it was stress free as possible. Whenever I became nervous or unsure of the process, he assured me that everything would work out and followed up on any questions/ concerns I had. I highly appreciated his perseverance and dedication in this process.

Mr. Carlson was able to make a dream come true for me. This is my first experience with Coldwell Banker and I consider myself a lifetime member of your company. Mr. Carlson in the process has become a friend and I will continue to use his services in future real estate services. I truly believe that I would not be in the place I am today if it hadn’t been for his hard work and experience in the industry. Thank you for your hard work and perseverance in making this dream come true.

Sincerely,
Anne

Steve and the entire team at Caldwell Banker in San Diego made buying a condo one of the easiest things we have ever done. He was efficient, effective and immediately had a great sense of what we were looking for in a new place. His knowledge of the current market was aligned to our needs allowing us to look at a variety of properties that matched our specifications in a self imposed limited amount of time. In addition, Steve graciously changed his schedule to accommodate ours, stayed in communication with us on a regular basis, and helped to ensure a quick close on the property. Steve's professional, candid, and enthusiastic character, as well as his attention to detail, made working with him a distinct pleasure; we would recommend him to anyone considering a home purchase in San Diego. Although we had planned on using local financing, the Caldwell Banker Team worked with us giving us a great deal on financing and again worked together to meet our deadlines and make the whole purchase process enjoyable.

Ginny is the consummate broker in every respect. I have worked with her as her Escrow Officer and she was delightful and extremely efficient. She was also my personal broker on a property I sold and I can only say the same. She was thoughtful, realistic, helpful in every aspect of the transaction while in escrow and while the property was on the market. I cannot say enough good and positive about her.

Sharon I. R.

Since our company just relocated to San Diego, there has been so much to so. It seemed almost impossible for me to pay any attention to getting my own place, but thanks to you, it all happened quickly and without a hitch. The selling broker told me I should know my bid was the same as another bid they received and the only reason they picked me was because I was with Ginny and we know she’ll make it happen. Thanks for breaking the tie! And I know you’re working on a lot of different transactions. Thanks for making me feel like your “special case.”

Ginny Ollis was our real estate broker on both of the homes we purchased in San Diego. She is a wonderful person to work with and a great resource for everything having to do with real estate. We highly recommend her.

Ginny guided me on two rental-property acquisitions with professionalism and superb communication skills. Both transactions would likely have been derailed without her experienced hand and the respect she has earned from the real-estate community. Also, her husband Tom makes a mean lentil soup. Delicious bonus!

My family was in the real estate profession in the 92103 for over 100 yrs and only once did they hire another realtor to represent their interests. That realtor was Ginny Ollis, and the result she accomplished was remarkable and most likely record breaking for the type of sale. Since then, Ginny has become a cherished friend who exemplifies high standards in all areas of her life. I am blessed and proud that she is a part of the community and my life.
