Client Testimonials

"From the very first meeting, we could tell that Lisa is professional, organized, experienced, upbeat and very talented in the field. I think if you're looking for a real estate agent, you should meet with her: just like us, after one meeting, you'll know she's the best agent around."   -Kathleen

"It is beyond impressive the amount of hard work, research, networking, and knowledge she puts into working with every client. I cannot recommend Lisa enough. She will consult with you every step of the way and always makes sure the process is done right and with every detail taken care of."   -Brandon

"The three things that I most appreciated about her during our condo hunt were her timely responses, her guidance backed by years of experience, and her sense of humor…she is an especially good guide when it comes to putting offers together, which can be quite nerve-wracking in a competitive market."   -Brenda

"My husband and I have always been so impressed by her knowledge, attention to detail, personal interaction, and overall ability to meet our needs---no matter how large or small. She is a true gem!!! We feel like we not only found a great real estate agent, but a friend as well."   -Michelle

"Lisa Ashkins is by far THE best Broker-realtor I have ever had the pleasure to work with on our condo sale in San Diego. When she uses the phrase "above and beyond" it is more than a catchy phrase but for Lisa it is a full- fledged 110% commitment to serve her clients with exceptional customer service, responsiveness, care, advocacy and collaboration. Seriously, for anyone reading this recommendation I can say after 40 years of property ownership she is among the very best…"   -Larry

"It was such a pleasure working with Lisa, and the most important thing about Lisa is her integrity and that she has her clients' backs!... Lisa is upbeat, makes herself available to you when you need her (evenings, weekends, etc), and gives great advice (offers, counter-offers, prioritizing fixes from the inspection, etc). She listens to what you want and what your concerns are. We always felt she had our interests in heart, never felt she was pushing us for her own agenda, and had great recommendations for any type of vendors you needed. She feels every joy and concern and disappointment WITH you. I would work with Lisa again in a heartbeat."  -Jennifer

"Lisa Ashkins is a real go-getter and someone you definitely want in your corner. She is extremely knowledgeable, energetic, hilarious, and wants nothing more than to make you happy. I couldn't suggest anyone better for buying/selling your next home."  -Meggie

"From the very first meeting, we could tell that Lisa is professional, organized, experienced, upbeat and very talented in the field…I think if you're looking for a real estate agent, you should meet with her: just like us, after one meeting, you'll know she's the best agent around."  -Tania

"We are so grateful we had Lisa as our Realtor to both sell our house and find our new dream home. She did so much to help the process go as smoothly as possible, like finding the best people to do inspections, making sure all deadlines were met, and all the other stuff involved in the process that a person would not be able to navigate without help. Lisa was always there to answer questions and help us feel comfortable with the process. She is also incredibly trustworthy and ethical."  -Katherine

"We knew exactly what we wanted. We gave Lisa our parameters and she found a number of outstanding homes to visit. Somehow, during our visits, she was able to recognize what WE REALLY WANTED and she added a home to our list to view and we bought it! It's not exactly what we asked for but, more importantly, it's the perfect home for us. That's what a realtor should do and we are grateful that Lisa is our realtor!" -Chris 

"Lisa is an Awesome agent. We had a difficult property with many challenges and she persevered to make the sale happen. Since we don't live in San Diego, we especially appreciated her taking care of the property…” -Charlie and Laura 

"Lisa Ashkins is FABULOUS!! If you are looking for a realtor who will provide you with 100% of her knowledge and professionalism, Lisa is the one!! She is constantly working for you. Willing to be honest with you (when you need some honest feedback)!! Purchasing a home is stressful, Lisa helps to reduce some of your stress to make the adventure more manageable. We cannot thank Lisa enough for helping us get the new home we had always wanted." -Sarah 

"Lisa helped us immensely with our first foray into home buying. She was patient with all the questions we had and all the hold ups that came up during the process and never made us feel like we were being rushed through anything. She was also great about bringing us to places that were fresh on the market, often making it so we were the first ones to get a look at the property (which is how we ended up in the place we did). She also spent time fighting on our behalf when difficulties arose with our lender which was huge in helping us secure our loan. Overall she was fantastic to work with and I would easily work with her again or recommend her to others, she is a great resource to have on your side." -Alex

Representing Buyers and Sellers throughout San Diego County 


My family and I moved to San Diego from Oregon in 1967, so I consider myself a “near native”. Over the years, I have lived in many wonderful San Diego communities including Clairemont, Kensington, Fashion Hills, Mission Valley, Tierrasanta, Otay Ranch, and Downtown. In recent years I returned to North Park and remodeled an historic home.

After graduating with honors from San Diego State University with a major in Social Work, I embarked on a career in the affordable housing industry and spent 14 years with the San Diego Housing Commission. During my tenure with the Commission, I led in the development and delivery of innovative and award-winning programs that supported increased quality of life, economic self-sufficiency and homeownership for many San Diego families.

My education and experience spans interior design, marketing, a Masters in Organizational Leadership and completing the rigorous process of becoming a licensed Real Estate Broker. I believe my professional experience working in the arena of affordable housing and later as a consultant and business owner, provided me with the right mix of research, marketing, sales, problem solving, time management, communication, negotiation, and customer service skills necessary to ensure successful real estate transactions.

Whether it's finding a new place to call home, selling your existing home with the greatest of ease, expanding your investment property portfolio, or getting the best loan, I am here to expertly guide the process and ensure superior service and attention from beginning to end.
