  • Pina helped me buy a home

      Pina is truly one of a kind! She is not only brilliant at her job but she is the most fun, most caring, and sincere professional. She was a breath of fresh air to work with and I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. She has 5 star reviews for a reason because she is truly a class act and worth every star.

    • Pina listed and sold my home

        I highly recommend Pina! From the beginning to end she was an expert, she went over the top to make sure I was informed and familiar with the entire process. Pina made sure to communicate everything throughout the sale and was very quick to respond to all my questions. We sold at my full asking price which others thought was a long shot. I couldn’t have found a better person to work with!

      • Pina listed and sold my home

          We entrusted Pina Shaw to be both our buyer’s and seller’s agent and she exceeded our expectations. She and her associates did their due diligence during the entire process from beginning to end. Pina is personable and professional. She really knows her stuff! Communication was of the utmost importance to us and we always felt she was being honest and she was available to answer our questions at a moment’s notice. I would highly recommend Pina as your agent whether you’re selling or buying a home or both, as in our case. She was able to sell our home within 5 days on the market and we were in our new home within 1 month! If you are motivate to sell or need to buy a home fast, she is your agent without a doubt!

        • Pina listed and sold my home

            Due to health issues, I needed to sell my house of 28 years as soon as possible and move to be near my son. A good friend of mine, in both the real estate and appraisal business, recommended Pina to me to get the job done. He was so right. From the day I met Pina and discussed the selling of my house, I felt in good hands. Due to health issues, I asked that she not put the house on the market until I had vacated, knowing full well the impediment that placed on her marketing, and my need for a relatively quick sale. Pina assured me that she understood, and not to worry about a thing, "I've got this!" Did she ever! Within 4 days of my leaving she called me with a reasonable offer from a buyer willing to buy under no conditions, as is, and wanting a fast closing. Pina made the nearly impossible happen, and she solved every potential issue that came up, while keeping me 'in the loop' every step of the process. If you are looking for a true professional, straight talker and a realtor who "gets things done", look no more. Just call Pina, tell her what you need and want, and have the confidence that she will take it from there and get the job done with a minimum of stress.

          • Pina listed and sold my home

              I had a few choices when it came to selling my father’s house after he passed. I cannot express how glad and grateful I chose Ms Shaw. She had an instinct and vast knowledge that in a way forecasted the best way to sell the property. Aside from that Pina has a dedication to her profession that is largely lost in this day and age. Lastly she was very attentive to the process and had a personable easy manner that made the whole experience run smoothly. Top notch.

            • Pina listed and sold my home

                Lovely woman to work with. Good follow up with agents viewing my house . She helped with pricing and I got full price . Closing was smooth and no major issues at all . I would use her again.

              • Pina is the best. We had been looking for a home for over a year and thinking we didn't need a Realator but learned quickly there is a lot to making sure you get a fair price and that the property is a solid one. Pina is honest, available when you need her and knowledgable. She got us a great deal and saved us thousands of dollars. We will definitely use her to sell our old home. Thank you Pina. You've become a true friend! And thank you for taking on the escrow company when they tried to slip in extra fees. You got us a nice refund!

A quick, painless transaction thanks to Pina, I highly recommend her

                - stevern02
              • My experience working with Pina was simple and straight forward. She was flexible and accommodating throughout the process and quickly responded to all communications. My situation was particularly unique in that I, the buyer, retained her services after learning that the owner of the home I was renting would be selling the property. Pina was instrumental in brokering a deal between the owner and I, even when in doing so, the house ultimately was sold to me quite a bit under market. While I was at first leery of not using my own agent i.e., someone separate from that of the sellers, her client service acumen ultimately won me over.

On many occasions, Pina went out of her way to help us, and the customer service was second to none. We consider Pina a family friend now and we absolutely had an amazing experience working with her. I would, hands down, recommend Pina to anyone looking for a home. She is the best realtor in the San Diego area.

                - zuser20150718203644375

              • If youre looking for a realtor who is personable and competent without high pressure, someone you can trust, turn to for advice, and rely on, then you definitely want to meet Pina Shaw and have her represent your real estate interests. Pina is an excellent communicator with deep personal integrity who listens to her clients and responds to concerns with straightforward honesty. She has a great network of professionals you can also trust. Personally no part of the process is too big or too small for her. . .and she does take it personally. Pina is the one to choose if you want someone who is aggressive but not pushy, is careful of the smallest details and willing to go beyond the call of duty. She is compassionate and fun, and great at relieving the stress of selling a home with her reassurance and concern

              • What a blessing it was to meet Pina Shaw! My husband and I were buying our first home - which is such a scary and nerve wracking time. She was mindful of our budget, to a fault, lol! While driving me around (several times too!) while my husband was at work, she wouldn't even take me inside to see the ones not on her list - ones that she knew we couldn't afford. Who does that? Pina Shaw does....her integrity and dedication to her profession is so impressive. She patiently answered ALL our questions, sometimes over and over too ! She always answered her mobile phone , or called us right back - even after hours and on the weekends, when all those crazy thoughts, worries, and silly questions tend to come up. We ended up finding our dream home close to our daughter's school in Vista, and lived there happily ever after for many years. I'm proud to say, after 10+ years, I can still call her my friend! You will not be sorry to have Pina Shaw help you find the perfect home - that will not only fit your wants and needs, but your budget! Call will be so happy you did too!

              • Pina is/was amazing. We had an experience with another realtor last summer and put in countless offers- always losing out. The first time we met Pina we hit it off and she always went the extra mile to help us. Pina met us after work, after the kids went to sleep, before work, etc. She called and emailed and wanted to make sure we understood what we were signing and our rights and what we needed to understand the paperwork. We couldnt have had a better experience. She even gave gifts to our children when we finally received the keys. All in all an amazing person and a great realtor

                - user4749542
              • Pina's services came to us through a colleague's (at the time) recommendation of whose opinion I highly respect after we had located the house we were looking to purchase. Pina was very knowledgeable of all aspects of negotiation and transaction. Because we purchased our new home in a quick close circumstance, we had to carry two mortgages until we found a buyer for our previous home. Pina diligently worked and made that happen quickly. Important to the tedious details of home purchasing, selling and moving, Pina is an excellent project manager which helps things go as smoothly as possibly. She was quick to recommend and provide solutions for the unforeseen things that come up and need attention during the process. I will continue to recommend Pina to friends for real estate professional services. In addition her excellent knowledge and talent, she is pleasant and fun

              • I highly recommend contacting Pina Shaw when you are ready to buy or sell your home. She is a highly regarded professional, extremely responsive and well-versed in handling even the most challenging of situations, and people! In the critical period following the offer, Pina was at her finest. Able to draw from her well-developed list of contacts, she quickly helped me prioritize and resolve a wide variety of buyer contingencies. She acted as a true partner in the sale of my home and worked hard to successfully achieve my desired end goal. I would not hesitate to contact her again for my next sale or purchase! Susan O
