Working with Lisa made my first-time home-buying experience smooth, stress-free and fun! She not only brought exceptional customer service to the experience but the way in which she translated her expertise into easily understandable bites of information made the process so much easier to enjoy. I greatly value her time, positive attitude and professionalism. She went above and beyond when the usual few hiccups arose in the process to make sure that I was comfortable, satisfied and was always in the know. I also appreciate how she readily made herself available during what I am sure is an already busy schedule and during a global pandemic. I would wholeheartedly recommend working with Lisa if you have the chance. Thanks for everything!

Stacy, I felt like I lived several lifetimes with you during this journey, even though collectively it probably was about 3.5 months in totality! The ups and downs were sometimes excruciating and exciting at the same time, and it was the metaphorical roller coaster, but through it all you were right there as my ride companion. I am forever grateful that you accepted taking me on as a long distance client, and devoting many of your off hours to respond to my queries, reassure me, and close the loops on time sensitive matters. My intuition from our first meeting was definitely one of trustworthiness, and I am so very gratified for allowing that intuition to guide the way. Thank you for being so available, caring, supportive, and kind during our time together, and essentially helping me secure a dream I had established back in summer of 2003 when I moved away from San Diego. I am overjoyed …

Thank you for being so available, caring, supportive, and kind during our time together, and essentially helping me secure a dream I had established back in summer of 2003 when I moved away from San Diego. I am overjoyed to be a San Diegan again, in one form or another, and you can rest assured that it couldn't have happened the way it did without you. In your profession I'm sure that's what makes executing your craft special, as I know I'm not the first person you've helped secure a dream, yet each time you help someone fulfill their dreams, it probably leaves you feeling warm inside, and to that end, I hope that this experience provided much of those similar feelings. The experience overall felt more like working with a friend than an agent, and that personal touch is what all of us consumers feel separates standard of care from excellence, so thank you for your excellence. All was appreciated.

I'm super happy with the sale of my home. Lisa was very patient thought-out the whole process. I know my property was not the easiest with foundation issues and overall condition. I appreciated all her advice and sound strategy along the way. I really feel like she took my concerns into consideration and everything she suggested was in my best interest, which was refreshing compared past experience with other agents.

Stacy was great at allowing us to explore a variety of different home models and price ranges. She was very attentive to our needs and really took the time to listen to what we wanted.

Michael W.

We are very impressed with Lisa Padilla and her team. Lisa brought us multiple buyers, walked us through competing offers, eased our fears of the VA process and got it sold for $15,000 above our listed price, all this in just 41 days on the market, including escrow. Outstanding! We've nothing but great things to say about her expertise and professionalism. Thank you Lisa.

Determined, hardworking, and protective. Those are just three of the adjectives (many more come to mind) that describes our realtor, Stacy Fuerte. We started working with Stacy approximately in early 2019 to help us look for our new home. Stacy took the time to get a list of wishlist items we wanted to get in a new home. She established a rapport with us and we soon felt very comfortable in having her lead the way. Over the next few months, she toured many homes with us and was always able to set up home tours on our schedule (even when she was out of town for a week she made sure we were well taken care of with another agent for showings). When we put in a bid for a home, it was after having an earnest discussion with her about what it would take to win a bid in the East Chula Vista area, which sees many homes reach the market and get sold in a matter of a couple of weeks.

Determined, hardworking, and protective. Those are just three of the adjectives (many more come to mind) that describes our realtor, Stacy Fuerte. We started working with Stacy approximately in early 2019 to help us look for our new home. Stacy took the time to get a list of wishlist items we wanted to get in a new home. She established a rapport with us and we soon felt very comfortable in having her lead the way. Over the next few months, she toured many homes with us and was always able to set up home tours on our schedule (even when she was out of town for a week she made sure we were well taken care of with another agent for showings). When we put in a bid for a home, it was after having an earnest discussion with her about what it would take to win a bid in the East Chula Vista area, which sees many homes reach the market and get sold in a matter of a couple of weeks. Although we ultimately lost in a multiple counter offer for that home, Stacy's numerous pep talks kept us going to keep looking for our home. We eventually came across a home that suited virtually all of our needs, however, it was above our desired budget number. When we lost the other home bid and looked at a few more properties, it occurred to me to circle back to the home that fit our needs (aka Tristan). Stacy was WAY AHEAD of me on that one, as she revealed to me that she had been in periodic contact with the Tristan seller's agent to keep us in the loop about the offers on that home. At some point, there was an opening for us to make a bid, and Stacy was determined to make this transaction happen! She negotiated a fair amount with the seller's agent and we finally agreed on a price, and we got the house! Stacy's knowledge of the market trends in the East Chula Vista area was invaluable and helped us determine what it would take to win a bid in the area. Her incredible kindness to my wife and I won't soon be forgotten. We consider Stacy a "family friend" as well as an incredible realtor. Thank you again for helping us get to the finish line for our Forever Home, Stacy!

Lisa did an exceptional job throughout the transaction. She returned texts and phone calls promptly. Her expertise helped make the sale. From the first meeting where she made on-target suggestions to make the house ready through the negotiation of the terms of the sale. I highly recommend Lisa. Great experience. Her support staff were wonderful too.

Rachel

Lisa is amazing! She was so thorough, professional, patient, and took the time to explain each process as we progressed through escrow. She’s prompt in her replies to our emails, texts, or calls; and she was able to troubleshoot a few things for us during the process. She is truly a rockstar!

Brian

Stacy was awesome to work with! This was our first home buying experience. During the home search process and viewings, she was very helpful. She's very easy going and pointed things out in houses to look out for. Never felt pressured to make decisions. We loved that. We went to a new development and the sales people there are very pushy, but Stacy got in there and didn't let them pressure us or bother us. We were able to look at the model homes without being hassled by sales people. During the escrow, she was great. She made sure we were aware of everything going on. Making sure nothing slipped thru the cracks or was delayed. The buying process was very smooth. I would definitely recommend Stacy to anyone looking to buy a home

She was very professional. Half way through our process she had to leave on a family vacation and she left me me in very capable hands of another agent, Tamara. Once back she got in touch. She responded to phone or text messages.

Stacy was great to work with. She showed me multiple properties and offered her experienced knowledge of San Diego real estate to help me find the right fit for me. With Stacy's solid knowledge of the market and her great communication, I was able to find the perfect property for me in San Diego while only there for a 7 day vacation. She was also great during the closing process and made the deal go through smoothly. And now I am the owner of my dream condo and looking forward to a new life in San Diego. Thank you Stacy!

As a first time homeowner Stacy made my husband and I feel confident in purchasing a home. Not only was she great as our realtor but honestly she’s a great person who we now consider a friend.
