Real Estate News: Realtor Karen Hickman named Five Star real-estate agent … again


Karen Hickman of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties La Jolla office has again earned San Diego’s “Five Star Best” in customer satisfaction for 2014. The award is a response to the results of an independent survey that polls more than 30,000 recent homebuyers in the San Diego area on their experience during purchases.

“There are few things in our business as important as client satisfaction, and being recognized as excelling in that area is an honor,” Hickman said. “In our industry, we help people find homes to build their dreams, and knowing that people trust me to help them along that path is one of the reasons I love my career so much.”

In addition, Karen has ranked No. 2 for Most Homes Sold by an Individual Agent in the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties La Jolla office through the third quarter of 2014.

“Karen’s knowledge of local real estate is matched only by her devotion to her clients,” said Nicki Marcellino, regional vice president at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties’ La Jolla office. “In our business, you rise and fall based on how you treat the people you work for, and Karen’s rapport with her clients is definitely demonstrated by her recent Five Star Best award.”

With more than 25 years in the local real-estate industry, Hickman is known for her superior customer service and strategic marketing skills.

A Certified Relocation Specialist as well as a Fine Homes Specialist, she centers her business on providing outstanding customer service and is often overheard saying, “It’s my pleasure to serve you.”

She is consistently ranked as a top producer and award-winner year after year in the No. 1 top-producing Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices office in the nation.
