Anne is an exceptional agent! After bad experiences with two other agents who were either unethical, lazy or not very knowledgeable, I was fortunate enough to meet Anne at an open house she held one day in June 2016, about 6 months after my house search had begun. I was impressed with her candor and openness, so asked if she might help me find a home in Pt. Loma or PB that I love, meets my criteria and I can afford (a very tall order in those neighborhoods given my income). Over the next 6 months, Anne must have shown me at least 25-30 houses. I walked away from escrow twice after significant issues were revealed during inspections, and I lost one property because the unscrupulous listing agent later admitted he set up a deal with the sellers that netted them more if he represented both them and the buyer. During all of that, Anne always had my back and went way above and beyond my expectations to put a deal together so that I could buy a home I loved. Even during vacations with her family in Hawaii and Costa Rica, she was in touch with me by phone or e-mail almost every day. She is not only tireless and diligent about every aspect of her work, but always on time for appointments, 100% honest and fun to be with. She found the house I now own the morning it was first listed and as a result, I was the first to see it and have an opportunity to submit an offer. Escrow on this house probably set a record for the number of problems that arose - in this case, caused by either the seller or the owner of the house she was buying concurrently. Anne patiently and tirelessly worked to keep escrow from unraveling and on track for closing. Thanks to her, it finally came together and the sale closed. I cannot recommend Anne enough! If I ever sell my new home and buy another, I would not consider using anyone but her as my agent.
I first met Anne at a showing for one of her properties in Linda Vista and she was extremely knowledgeable about the Point Loma area where I live. When I inquired about rental/investment properties she was able to provide a great deal of honesty and information on her personal foray into the business side of things. After setting me up on an email "drip" of duplexes, we were off and running. Within 1 week we went looking through properties and single-family homes. Within 2 weeks we were putting in an offer. Escrow closed 4 weeks later. She worked tirelessly to get all the proper documentation in order, through her attention to detail, I even secured my property when the other buyer (who had bid higher) put the offer on the wrong contract. She went above and beyond the usual role of a real estate agent including helping to get rid of the seller's personal property and really working after hours on my schedule to get things signed and delivered. She even worked on July 4th to make sure we would not lose out on our property. We worked with her again on the sale of our home in Point Loma and she was spot on once again. She worked tirelessly to show the house (it seemed like every other day!) and was thinking about us having 2 young kids at the time. She was open and honest about potential buyers and was always up front about pricing and what we needed to do sell the house (we were involved in a time-sensitive contingency offer on another house). I really can't say enough good words about her efficiency and dedication and will always look to her for future real estate matters.
Late this spring our family learned it would need to purchase a condominium in San Diego before my granddaughter starts high school in late August. Neither my son’s family nor my wife nor I was familiar with San Diego, much less its real estate market. The first weekend in May my son and I flew to SD and met for the first time with Anne. She virtually gave us her whole weekend showing us the neighborhoods, a variety of properties and hearing what our needs/goals were. We left SD knowing a bit more about the housing market and that we had, in fact, met a wonderful, committed and knowledgeable realtor. Within only a few days Anne sent us video clips of a property that had just come on the market and was in the area near the school my granddaughter would be attending. It was time for us to again fly down to SD to visit the property and, if reasonable, write an offer. My daughter-in-law and I flew down for the day, were met at the airport by Anne and visited the property. We wrote an offer and left our deposit at the title company. Anne drove us back to the airport. Anne guided us through the most complicated escrow I had ever experienced (and I am a retired real estate broker). Despite needing to change lenders and overcome unexpected obstacles, Anne tirelessly got us through escrow and we now own the desired property. Throughout, Anne was warm, friendly, available and patient with us. She kept lenders, listing agents and title officers on track as she guided all of us to close this escrow. Thank you, Anne.
I was fortunate to have been introduced to Anne seven years ago when my wife and I were looking for a new home. At the time we were not entirely sure what we were looking for, beyond more room for our growing family and staying in the Ocean Beach/Point Loma area. Anne kept us up to date on new properties and was incredibly patient with us as buyers. Showing us numerous properties until we eventually found our dream home in a dream location, a couple of blocks to the beach and close to Sunset View Elementary School. After which she coordinated and guided us through the offer and counter process at a time when I was overseas for work and my wife was traveling summer vacation with our sons. I will always greatly appreciate how well Anne navigated and helped make the process as smooth as possible. When it came time to sell our rental property in Ocean Beach, it was only natural to call Anne as her easy-going and detail-oriented personality had been such a good fit for us in the past. Anne did a wonderful job of helping us prepare and sell our rental. She also was tremendous about coordinating with our tenants throughout the process. I would highly recommend Anne for her attention to detail, knowledge of the process and genuine good personality. She knows when to advise and when to push. She was a great asset guiding us through both buying and selling.
I listed my house in Point Loma with Anne and was very pleased with the results. I live overseas and the house had been rented for 10 years and was very run down. A real mess. I needed to evict the tenant and then get in to renovate before putting the house on the market. A lot of work with a short amount of time due to living overseas. Anne stepped in and arranged a painter, a floor finisher and a cleanup crew from her extensive list of resources. All of these people performed exceptionally well at a very competitive price. This is something I could not have done on my own. I returned home and Anne continued negotiating with the market while keeping me advised of our progress and discussing ongoing strategy. We ended up in a difficult and prolonged Escrow due to our purchaser's unique circumstances and I called on Anne to provide expertise on how best to complete the sale. During this time Anne and her husband went above and beyond the call of duty by actually going over and cutting my lawn as the house was vacant for this extended period. I have owned and sold many homes over time. I have developed a number of properties as well so I know the process and I would not hesitate to recommend Anne to anyone looking for a competent, professional and results-oriented representative.

We have been clients of Anne Herrin for several years. During those years she has helped in numerous ways, always with a smile, to find or sell a home for us. She never gives up! Anne is an incredible agent and her knowledge of the market trends has served us well. We feel so lucky to have Anne as our agent. Each time we would come to San Diego she would be prepared to show us every home which might fit our needs. When we were in Gig Harbor, Washington, she would provide us with accurate online information and telephone support. She was there to answer any questions we had. Anne is a true professional with the most charming and warm personality. Long days of house hunting were fun. She kept track of how our Gig Harbor home sale was moving along. She kept track of the home purchase of our San Diego condo seller. She was amazing! Did we mention we had no car available and were camping at Camperland in Pacific Beach? Anne picked us up every day in her adorable electric car and was prepared to show us many types of homes. We finally found, thanks to Anne's perseverance, the perfectly priced, large, view condo. We love it! She kept close tabs on every step of the sale. Her untiring energy, professional knowledge, and positive attitude make her a true asset.
I highly recommend Anne as a real estate agent for transactions in and around San Diego, and Point Loma in particular. I first met Anne a few years ago when inquiring about a home in Point Loma. After a brief conversation, I immediately recognized she was different than other real estate agents I had worked with. She provided extremely professional, pertinent, unbiased, helpful, and honest information. Quite frankly, I had never experienced such high-quality service before. As a result, I have relied on her assistance and expertise for all my real estate inquiries and transactions since. I continue to be impressed and satisfied with the service she provides. In short, Anne adds significant value to transactions through her professional expertise as well as her personalized attention. Despite an increasingly digital real estate market where buyers and sellers can perform many real estate transactions ‘online’, I still always choose to work with Anne because she adds a dimension of personal and professional value well beyond anything the internet provides. For these reasons, I highly recommend Anne and am confident that she will contribute valuable assistance to any real estate transaction.
After my father passed away, my mother was looking to sell the house that she had lived in for 50 years. As you can imagine, this was a very emotional event in all of our lives. We knew that we had to find a real estate agent with the right mix of patience, market knowledge, compassion, and integrity. Anne Herrin possessed all of these qualities, which made the sales process much easier for everyone, especially my mother. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate everything that Anne did for my mom and we were able to conclude the sales process in a very expeditious and efficient manner. Additionally, we received a very fair price and my mother is now able to live comfortably for the rest of her life. If you are looking for an agent that possesses integrity, knowledge, compassion and the ability to “Get The Job Done,” I would highly recommend considering Anne Herrin as your agent. There is nobody better.

We recently both sold and purchased homes in Point Loma. These transactions went quickly and smoothly due to the efforts of our outstanding local agent, Anne Herrin. During our purchase, having an agent familiar with the local market quickly directed us to the appropriate properties and allowed us to understand pricing in this market. The directions of our agent, Anne Herrin, greatly assisted us in securing funding for our new loan and in presenting a competitive offer to the seller. Without Anne's efforts and presented to the seller and seller's agent, the purchase would not have occurred. Secondly, while representing us during the sale of our home, Anne Herrin, marketed the property with a strategy that resulted in a rapid sale. The immediate open house showings, appropriate pricing, and effective photo brochures created large and early foot traffic and several offers.

We recommend Anne as your future Realtor because of how hard-working, flexible, knowledgeable, and familiar she is with all parts of San Diego. We honestly felt comfortable every step of the way and she gives amazing advice. We are first time home buyers and have been in our home for four months. We love our home! No buyer’s remorse!! At first, we were hesitant because home inventory was low and prices were rising. We wanted to live in a very specific area of Clairemont. Working with Anne was most pleasing, she made buying our home surprisingly seamless. We strongly recommend Anne, she will be there for you at the drop of a hat. She knows real estate, listens, and most importantly knows how to close. You won’t regret it one bit. We have tons of Realtor friends and family...we went with Anne because of how hardworking she is and honest.

My mission is to help everyone find their place in the world.
