"I was a first-time home buyer eyeing a new construction, single-family home, and could not have done it without Danielle. Almost immediately after I contacted Danielle and informed her of my interest in the home, she pulled up comps in the neighborhood and set up a private viewing of the home. She encouraged me to visit the comps to fully gauge what was available, which helped to confirm my confidence in my choice. This process turned out not to be so easy as we had to deal with obstacle after obstacle (which resulted in a 9-month escrow all due to the fault of the seller), as well as the seller’s inept agent, yet somehow Danielle remained extremely patient, professional, and respectful to all parties the entire time (even when I felt like exploding). Unlike the seller’s agent, Danielle kept easily-retrievable records of important documents and meeting notes and was always prepared for each meeting with the seller and contractors. Given her years and years of experience, Danielle was also able to offer creative suggestions based on homes from previous transactions every time I wanted to make modifications to what would be my future home. In addition, Danielle is very well connected in the world of real estate and was able to refer me to lenders her previous clients have been pleased with, and even a great real estate attorney when one was necessary. Throughout the entire experience, I had confidence that my interests were effectively communicated to the seller, which resulted in a steal of a purchase price based on Danielle’s skillful and strategic negotiating abilities. Anyone would be very fortunate to have Danielle on their team! "
"In 2014 we were residing in a Chicago suburb when we decided to move to San Diego. We researched online several San Diego real estate agents that were located in our preferred area, Carmel Valley. We ultimately selected Lisa Harden due to her impressive real estate sales experience and track record in San Diego County as well as her office location in Carmel Valley. Purchasing a house 2,000 miles from our home presented many logistical challenges. During the next year, we visited San Diego several times and Lisa escorted us to many existing houses in a very low inventory Carmel Valley market. In addition, she assisted us in registering in two Pardee Homes developments’ priority list to purchase a new house. Due to her efforts during that year we were able to purchase our dream home in Watermark. As we were not familiar with the California real estate purchase process, she guided us from the signing of our home’s purchase agreement to the close of escrow. We strongly recommend Lisa to anyone searching for a real estate agent. She is an excellent professional who is knowledgeable, diligent, hardworking, patient and kind."
"I moved from the Ventura area of California on September 9, 2017. Danielle made sure I had a beautiful one bedroom/one bath in Solana Beach to come to and stay while she helped me look for a permanent place! So, actually she started working for me before I even moved here, she wanted me comfortable and safe and I am so thankful for that! Now, in the following 2 months after I moved here, we started our research on finding me a new place! Danielle was a superwoman and was always looking for places that she knew that I’d find attractive as well as necessary for my needs. I could never explain the important role she played in my happiness, well-being, safety and finding my perfect home! Danielle Wright is one amazing person! She’ll always be a part of my life and one of the best, hardworking people I have had the privilege to work with and come to know! Choosing Danielle will be, without question, the best decision you will ever make for you and your family’s future!"
"We presented Lisa and Danielle with a challenging property and their performance exceeded our expectations. The property had served as a rental for 16 years and was in need of repair and updating. Lisa gave us specific recommendations on the work that should and should not be done in order to maximize our net return and connected us with a general contractor who screened, retained, and supervised the subcontractors who performed the work. The work was completed on time and the cost was very reasonable. The house was professionally staged and photographed, with Lisa and Danielle keeping us apprised of all developments. The house sold quickly, with multiple offers, at the top of our expected range of values. The entire process was seamless and managed with the utmost professionalism by both Lisa and Danielle. We cannot recommend them highly enough."
"We have had 2 transactions this year, both with Danielle Wright and Lisa Harden representing us. We bought a house and sold a house. So we feel it is pretty amazing to be able to say that these transactions were the easiest and best we have ever completed. From beginning to end Danielle and Lisa represented our interests, showed us their up-to-date understanding of the market, left no questions unanswered and executed a follow through with every detail or glitch that arose throughout the bidding process and our entire escrow. They are knowledgeable, reasonable and were always there for us. Their skills led to a smooth closing on each house. Their expertise and willingness to partner with their clients to achieve their goals are remarkable. We feel very fortunate to have connected with Danielle Wright and Lisa Harden."
"Lisa and Danielle came very highly recommended to us from a friend. Through their diligence and perseverance, they found the exact home we were looking for. They even negotiated so that we paid 15k less than we were willing to pay. From the open of escrow to the on-time close of escrow they literally made this home purchase seamless. Prior to finding this home we literally looked for one year in what was a very tight market. Lisa and Danielle receive an absolute five-star rating and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase their next dream home just like Lisa and Danielle helped us find ours. Sincerely, Newly Married Couple."
"I have moved many times as well as buying property for income/rental and across all those experiences I would say Lisa Harden is the most competent, professional and responsive real estate agent I have worked with. Insights, guidance, and great negotiation ability highlighted our second of two different home purchase experiences with her. We could not have felt better about the process in terms of the trust and comfort we had in her which was extra important as we were out of state/east coast base for the entire process. We plan to work with her again soon and recommend their team highly."
"I have been using Lisa and Danielle as my realtors for 18 years. They have bought and sold several houses for me in the San Diego area. I am amazed at the complete service and availability every time we have a transaction. I completely trust their opinion of the market and suggested negotiating guidance during the selling and buying process. You will definitely feel like they are working for you and will make the potentially overwhelming real estate process less stressful. I have used them to handle my rental property which has also been a breeze thanks to Lisa and Danielle."
"I found Danielle Wright through a friend's recommendation. She helped us sell our home fast and for top dollar! Since we had not purchased our next home we rented for a bit. During this time Danielle was right by us the entire time helping us find us forever home. She understood this needed to be a special place and fulfill the items on our wish list. She was patient, reliable, kind and very good at showing us options to think outside the box. She found us our forever home and negotiated a great deal for us. I will always recommend her and you will too. Thank you, Danielle!"
"Lisa and Danielle were so amazing for our home sale, that I was delighted to work with them again for a home purchase a few years later. They are true real estate professionals who know the market and are a huge help to both buyers and sellers. I so appreciated their guidance, knowledge, and responsiveness. Even when the market was really challenging, they never gave up and helped me find and buy the right home. Lisa and Danielle were a pleasure and made everything easier. Thanks for the great service and tenacity!"
"Masterful is a perfect word to describe this team. Lisa helped us a few times on real estate deals that were not straightforward. She is prepared, insightful, chock full of resourceful experience, and has the tact and respect in the industry to maneuver in ways that helped us find our dream home at the price we wanted. We will only use her expertise when buying or selling in the Carlsbad area and have been so very lucky to have such a wonderful person to represent us and get the deals done!"
"Lisa Harden has been my agent for over 20 years. She has been on both the buying and selling side of over 25 transactions during this time. This would include a personal residence, rentals, 1031 exchanges and even assisting to locate a qualified agent to help my daughter purchase her first home in VA. She is very professional and knowledgeable in regard to market conditions, financing and how to help guide a transaction to a successful close. You won’t find a better agent than Lisa Harden."
"We were first-time buyers and not really sure where or how to start. Lisa Harden was recommended by a friend and made the process seamless. Her knowledge, professionalism, kindness, and patience from beginning to end was priceless. Throughout the years, we have continued to reach out to Lisa for guidance and advice and she's always quick to respond and aware of current market information. We appreciate Lisa and will go nowhere else when selling or buying property."
"My wife and I met Danielle at an open house and we were immediately impressed with her knowledge of the schools and neighborhoods in Carmel Valley. She responded to our calls and viewing requests promptly, showed us many different homes and advised us on the best way to get our offer accepted in a highly competitive market. We can’t thank her enough for helping us buy our home. We would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who needs help buying or selling a home."
"Danielle (and Lisa) helped us buy the perfect home soon after relocating from Seattle. She was always available and Lisa stepped in seamlessly the one weekend she was away for her daughter's graduation. A most important part of a realtor relationship for me is listening, being flexible, and ensuring there is no pressure no matter the situation. Danielle was excellent and made us very confident and comfortable in some stressful situations with the seller."
"From the moment we listed our home for sale until the day it officially sold, Lisa and Danielle, exceeded our expectations. They are professional, honest, responsive and extremely knowledgeable about the San Diego real estate market. With their help, we received multiple offers and sold our home in less than a week. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you both! "
"We worked with Lisa on both local rental property and the purchase of our home. In both instances, we felt like she represented our interests at all times and negotiated on our behalf to make sure the terms of each transaction were reasonable and not unfavorable to us. Her expertise in the area definitely helped us feel comfortable with the selection of properties that we made."
"Lisa and Danielle went above and beyond when they sold our house in Carmel Valley last year. They were very knowledgeable, professional and detail-oriented. They were also great communicators and kept us informed throughout the sale process which we really appreciated. They definitely made our move less stressful and we appreciate everything that their team did to help us."
"We were lucky enough to meet Danielle at an open house and realized we needed her help to find our house. She is an experienced negotiator and listened to what we were looking for in a house and therefore made the process much more efficient. She is also personable and patient (we were first time home buyers) and offers opinions. I would not hesitate to recommend it!"
"Lisa was a dream to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable about the Carmel Valley area and her firsthand experience with the community helped us find a home that was perfect for us. Once we found our home I was impressed with how she handled the negotiations and contingencies. She was professional, organized, and easy to work with."
"Lisa was extremely helpful when searching for both a rental and then a home to purchase. She's been in Carmel Valley/Del Mar for years and knows the area like the back of her hand. Lisa also listened to our needs and showed us homes that met our needs. I also referred a friend to Lisa who now owns the perfect home for her and family!"
"We have had multiple transactions with Lisa and Danielle. They are both very professional and dependable. They always look for your benefit, provide very detailed information about the property and the market and don't rush you to make a decision. They are great during the whole process including escrow and after you close."
"Lisa Harden and Danielle Wright have been my realtors for over 15 years and have sold/ listed several properties for me. They are true professionals and are experts in the knowledge of real estate and negotiations. They were delightful to work with and made the sometimes daunting experience easy and seamless."
"We are very grateful to Danielle's thoughtful and thorough guidance in not only the home buying "process", but in helping us relocate. It was an arduous experience but Danielle was so caring and helpful she made several aspects a pleasant experience in finding our new home."
"We highly recommend Danielle and her team! She helped us with the very intense cross country move and found us a great house and negotiated a great price for us."
