Client Reviews

Huge shout out to our wonderful and dedicated realtor, Lisa Hinkson. We had a leak issue on our new house with the crazy amount of rain we are having. This girl climbed up into the attic with me (in a dress!) to see if she could help. She even offered to stop and get supplies for us. We appreciate your indefatigable work ethic, kindness and professionalism. You are not only our realtor but a friend. Thank you for being here for us, and always with that beautiful smile! -Harper L. Mar, North Escondido, CA

Lisa Hinkson is the best realtor I have ever met, hands down! She is easy to work with, straight forward, down to earth and just the friendliest hard working gal in the business. I’ve dealt with many realtors over the years and there are some who are too pushy, and some who make you feel like they are desperate to make a sale, this turns me off in the worst way. Lisa works overtime to make sure you get the best deal period. Her five star personality and experience shines through from the moment you talk with her. Call Lisa Hinkson and see for yourself. You won’t regret it.-Linda and Frank Latouf, Oceanside, CA

Wow! What can I say. Lisa really came through for us in an incredibly tough buyer’s market. She never gave up even though we wanted to throw in the towel multiple times on finding a house. When the moon and stars lined up for us on that perfect home, Lisa really went to bat for us and was an incredible advocate! Lisa was always positive and kept us moving forward and for that I am extremely grateful! Thank you Lisa for your perseverance in helping us buy our dream home! -Linnea Maria, San Diego, CA

Lisa is wonderful! As a first time home buyer, I was not very familiar with the home buying process. The first thing that Lisa suggested was meeting together to discuss all my questions and help me become familiar with the specifics of the Purchase Agreement. This prepared me to be ready for crunch time when we placed an offer. She was patient and flexible with my 8 month search and gave us her opinion on what would suite me the best without pushing to make a sale. Her advice on how low or high to offer were spot on…and together with her lender Anila, they were the reason our offer was accepted and I ended up with the home I wanted. After the sale, she continued to be proactive in following up with any issues. She pointed out when things were not right and did not stop working until all the problems were resolved. I would use Lisa again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to purchase a home. -Jarrod Wimpee, San Diego, CA

We’ve worked with Lisa on multiple occasions! We ABSOLUTELY LOVE HER! She is amazing with first time home buyers all the way up to the big leagues. We always felt important and never like just a number! She goes above and beyond to make sure you get exactly what you’re looking for and gives her honest opinion. We will always work with her for any future properties we purchase in the future! She even ordered pizza for us the day we moved into our new home! So incredibly thoughtful! We love you Lisa! -Gotz Family

Lisa was outstanding in helping me get home sold and used Lisa to purchase new home. Very knowledgeable and always keeping me updated every step of the way. Top-notch experience was awesome from start to finish. Lisa was great helpful and kept me notified all the way through it. Would recommend to anyone. -Neal Sessa, Vista, CA (Sold Listing) Oceanside, CA (Bought another Home)

I have known Miss Hinkson for almost 10 years. She has represented me for more than 30 real estate transactions in which we had successful results. Her work ethic and integrity are the two most characteristics that set her aside from other individuals whom I have worked with in the past. I will continue to work with her and I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need of Real Estate. -Adel Afkarian

Lisa put together a creative and competitive offer to help us secure a home that had multiple bids, without going over our budget! She was incredibly timely and responsive to make sure we hit important deadlines with our lender and other third parties. As first time home buyers, we’re so lucky we had Lisa to help guide us through this process. -Tyler and Kelly Sterk, Carlsbad, CA

We worked with Lisa and could not have been happier! I had my heart set on a particular neighborhood in Solana Beach. After being outbid on another property, we were able to buy our home before it came on the market, due to the team going the extra mile by writing letters to everyone in the development and finding us a seller. We are beyond thrilled and would highly recommend!!
-Lyssa Schmitt, Solana Beach, CA

Lisa is simply a remarkable realtor. She has a fantastic view of the San Diego market. Lisa is a top-notch negotiator. She knew when to increase an offer, hold steady, or low-ball. Lisa is also extremely patient – she worked with us on north of 10 offers over eighteen months before we finally closed on a home in this crazy house market. I highly recommend her! -Rajeev Maria, N. Escondido, CA

She is very communicative, responsive, diligent and organized, which made the home buying process a lot smoother than I anticipated.

I very highly recommend Lisa to anyone that wants to have the best experience possible with their home! -Cecille Reyes, Vista, CA

Lisa has advised us on real estate investments as well as acting as our agent on the purchase and sale of 5 homes. She works diligently to find advantageous investment opportunities. Her sense of style and eye for design have proven as invaluable in the purchase of each new home as her marketing savvy has been during the sales process. -J.Campbell

Lisa is absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. She really cares about her clients as well as the community and neighborhood she lives in. Her intelligence, professionalism, and experience helped us find the perfect home in an otherwise difficult market. I highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy a home! -Melissa Taylor, Carlsbad, CA

I was a first-time home buyer and had the great pleasure of working with Lisa. She is a consummate professional, extremely responsive and will work with you on getting the home that you want. We’ve had multiple offers not work out, and contracts we’ve backed out of but she was always ready to reset and move forward. Her positivity, understanding, and patience is exactly what we needed in our first home-buying experience and I am immensely thankful to have been able to have her on my side throughout this entire process. We were eventually able to buy a condo and could not be more happy! If you are in the market to buy a home, I cannot recommend Lisa enough. She is truly amazing. Thank you Lisa! -Hongray Leung, San Diego, CA

We didn’t know Lisa beforehand and met her only by chance while looking to buy a condominium in San Diego area under a tight schedule. Lisa turned out to be instrumental in helping us implementing our real estate project in a record time. Great personality, very knowledgeable, extremely responsive and helpful in any possible way. Great advice also and overall a great experience. Thank you Lisa! -cfreyrs, East Village, San Diego, CA

I had several agents that I had met at previous open houses and quite a few friends who were realtors but didn’t feel comfortable with any of them. I finally met Lisa when we got connected through a Zillow call. I’m so glad I did. Lisa is so experienced. I think she told me she had been working in real estate for more than 20 years and it shows. My family and I are so happy we connected with her. She has always been extremely professional. We felt she always was looking out for us. We recommend her to anyone who is actively looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Lisa. We will be recommending you to all of our family and friends. And when we are ready to sell, you will be the person we call. -Jeff S, Encinitas, CA

She was so helpful. I’m a first-time buyer and over all she explained everything and was constantly updating me with new information. I’m thankful for Christian, the showing agent, as well. He was always there showing me houses. Giving me tips and asking the other realtor questions about the property. Overall her and her team are great and I definitely recommend. -Vicente Morales, Lake Elsinore, CA

Lisa was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process. She would email new and updated listings daily. She was always available to answer any questions whether that were by phone, text, or email. Hope she’s as helpful to you as she was to me. Thanks again Lisa. -Nick B.

Lisa is very knowledgeable about the market, after I told her what I was looking for she immediately started sending me current listing, I only had to view 5 homes when I found the one I wanted, she started the process right away and she put together a great offer which won me the home I wanted, this home was only listed 1 day before I viewed it and the offer was made, There were multiple offers on this home, but she knew what it would take to get this home for me. Lisa is very professional and listens to what you want and will get the right home for you.
-Denise B.

Lisa Hinkson was wonderful to work with…we had a small amount of time regarding the sale of our home. She worked quickly and efficiently to meet our needs. Lisa is a true professional who is an expert in her field…and always has a smile on her face! Thanks! -Jennifer Dewitt

Thanks a million to you Lisa, I was looking to purchase a home for me and my family, Lisa sent me listings every day and sometimes multiple times per day, I only had to view 5 homes when I found the perfect home. This home was only on the market 1 day and I knew it was the one for me. Due to Lisa’s expertise and knowledge, she was able to put together the perfect offer which won me the home, Please note: there were multiple offers along with mine and this was the day after the home was listed, she knew what offer would be the best offer to get me this home…. Again, Thank you Lisa!

Lisa was fantastic in helping us find exactly what we wanted. She worked tirelessly to help us research homes and narrow the field. She is extremely responsive and very professional. She is friendly, honest and trustworthy and will tell you “like it is” pointing out the good potential problems. We viewed close to 50 homes and she saved us a lot of time and helped us avoid mistakes. We recommend her highly.

I can’t say enough positive things about working with Lisa. Beyond being extremely knowledgeable and professional, Lisa made sure that everything that needed to be done was done to insure our confidence in purchasing a home out-of-state. Home inspection, walk-thru, contractor bids, she did it all. We could not have made the purchase without her. I would recommend Lisa a million times over. She is fabulous!

Lisa has a genuine interest in providing the best representation for her client while bringing a wealth of industry knowledge. You will immediately have confidence in Lisa because of her enthusiasm and commitment in creating a stress free experience. The only concern you should have with Lisa is knowing where you are going to live next because she will sell your home in a very timely manner while preserving equity and profit. Lisa sold my home in 10 days, but what was more impressive – those 10 days included the Christmas Holiday!

Lisa is very professional, but is also warm and personal. She showed me homes and areas of town that I had not previously considered. This actually helped me to focus on what I really wanted in a new home. Lisa spent a lot of time with me and always made me feel like she was looking out for my best interest. She was very responsive, even while she was out of town during the holidays. After I purchased my home, Lisa was a great resource for various services, locksmith, painter, etc. I definitely recommend her. Thank you Lisa!

Lisa found me a fantastic house with all the requirements I was looking for in a very short period of time. She was very responsive to my requests , available, and inquisitive to my desires for a home. One thing that really stood out while working with her was her knowledge of distances and time to travel, not just based on a map, but real-life application. She showed me homes in an area I would of never considered because it was to far from my son’s school. Lisa knew I loved this house and my only hang up was the location. So with stopwatch in hand, she timed the distance to travel, and to my surprise it was only 12 minutes. If it wasn’t for her local knowledge I may of missed out on a great home! The integrity she displays in friendship is the exact same she displays as a Real Estate agent. She has one set of standards and they are of the highest caliber. With Lisa Hinkson as your real estate agent I guarantee your home buying or selling experience will be extremely enjoyable, stress free and rewarding.

Lisa helped us with the purchase of our lot in Estancia. The negotiations went back and forth and Lisa was there at every turn. Lisa is the most responsive real estate professional we have used. Our transaction took place over the holidays and Lisa still responded within minutes to every call. So pleased with Lisa, her expertise and ability to get the deal across the finish line was terrific. Thanks Lisa !

Extremely helpful in my research in finding the exact property to build on. We will always use Lisa. She is thorough and really respects my time and listens to what we want. She keeps coming up with options and knows the market.

Lisa was the best to work with and extremely knowledgeable in the home buying process. She went out of her way to assist and made herself available when ever necessary. Couldn’t have asked for more!
9/29/2014 – karadbrady

Lisa has handled seven transactions for me. Some were for residential investment properties and some were for personal homes. She is very much on top of the investment market and understands what makes a profitable deal, but she was always very sensitive to my needs for my personal home as well. And she’s nice.
9/27/2014 – harlen8

Lisa Hinkson is the hardest working agent I have ever met. Over the several years since I met her, I have bought 2 houses with her and counting. I have recommended her so many times, I can’t even count and I always get positive feedback. It may be a few years before I need to buy again, but when I do, she will be the one I contact. HIGHLY RECOMMEND her to anyone looking to buy or sell!!

Lisa was very good in helping us to buy a new home in 2004. We are still in our home and are very happy with it. She is very professional and the sale went through very smoothly. We highly recommend her.
9/23/2014 – farlingcl

Over the years, we have used Lisa Hinkson for various purchases and sales of real estate. She has always been very professional and thorough and caring. We noted, this past purchase about a year ago after years of experience, Lisa was even more reliable and responsible than ever. Would recommend her to anyone.
9/22/2014 – joanneandralph

Lisa helped my wife and buy and sell a home. Unfortunately, in our case we were only in the home for one year. Due to a death in the family, we made a difficult decision to move to the east coast. On short notice, Lisa listed and showed the home. She not only received our asking price, but above it. In addition, she helped my father sell a home in Mesa. A consummate professional, Lisa helped to ease a stressful process. She also helped find contractors to help prep the house for sale. I would recommend Lisa to anyone looking to buy a home.

When it comes to your real estate needs Lisa is one of the best. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend her if your considering buying or selling! -Robert Edwards
