Pam is a consummate professional and was a pleasure to work with. She goes the extra mile for her clients and she was available to us whenever we needed her, throughout the buying and selling process. Extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Justine Fiore

We were so fortunate to meet Pam at an open house down the street where she was representing our neighbor's home sale. She demonstrated a warm, welcoming attitude and great knowledge of the market in the area! We sought out her help to sell our home a month later after we saw the tremendous precision and enthusiasm that went into selling our neighbor's home for top dollar within a couple of days! It was the best decision we could have made! Pam is extremely organized, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about selling your home for the price you would like and under the best conditions for your family! Her warm and friendly spirit is balanced by a well researched and calculated understanding of the market, the perfect mix for a realtor! Pam is someone you can trust to wholeheartedly seek out buyers for your home and negotiate fairly in your best interest! Once we had an offer on our home, Pam made a tremendous effort to insure that the documentation, repairs, and closing went off without a hitch! She made it so easy on us, and we are extremely grateful for the amazing customer service she provided, way above and beyond what is typically expected!! We were so fortunate to have easily closed on the sale of our house due to the persistent and dedicated work that Pam put into making every aspect of the process seamless!

Pam is simply a joy to work with. She is that rare breed that brings superb professionalism, grace and expert guidance to the entire process. This was our tenth real estate transaction, and we would work with Pam again without hesitation!

When we met Pam, we knew that we were going to wait about a year to acquaint ourselves with the area before we were ready to make the purchase. During that entire year, Pam was always available for questions, home tours (even if simply to gather information), etc. When it came time to shift into active "buyer" mode, Pam was simply exceptional. She worked very closely with us and our mortgage broker to help put together a strategic offer that won us our dream home.

We highly recommend her to anyone!

Pam was helpful and dillegent and was always there to walk me thru every step of the sale. From the begining to explaing and answering all my questions about the process to list the house, negotiating a price and referring all the people I needed to get the house ready. She's got great referrel's for all our needs from handymen, painters, etc. Escrow was a breeze and she's fantastic at being about to help out and overcome any obstactle they may come your way. She's the best!

Dan Yuter

Pam was great and I would definitely recommend her to others and use her services again myself! Pam was calm, hard-working, detail oriented, and very resourceful when it came to negotiations and having contacts in the real estate field. Pam is very ethical and conscientious. She is an excellent real estate agent!

Mike Still

Pam O'Donnell is an excellent realtor. She was thorough and knowledgeable throughout our entire transaction, and went above and beyond our expectations as a realtor. If you are looking for a professional, caring, and honest real estate agent, look no further than Pam. We would use her again without hesitation.

Jeff & Debbie Colton

Pam was great to work with. She was recommended by a friend for the area we were currently renting in. We were *set* on that area but she encouraged us to look around and we ultimately bought somewhere else.

We put 5 offers on different homes and felt very discouraged but she was always positive and provided more options.

The home we purchased had 7 offers on it and then the home owner/their realtor went back to everyone with *best and final.* We got it and it happened because Pam was on top of it ... day or night ... making sure we were informed and helping create a strategic gameplan.

"We recently had the opportunity to have Pam O'Donnell represent us in the sale of our home. Since the house was vacant, she was able to take care of every detail for us from cleaning & staging to hiring handymen. She even added extra touches that were great. Pam's ability to anticipate events was so helpful and we received multiple offers within days. Pam's communication and follow-through during the transaction was impressive, making it a pleasure to work with her. We really appreciate her attention to detail, honesty and professionalism. We would confidently recommend Pam to neighbors, family and friends in the future."

We have bought and sold a number of houses and the level of excellence we received when working with Pam O'Donnell was fantastic.

Pam listened to what we wanted and used her intuition and experience to show us homes that fit our taste. Pam was very proactive in her facilitation of the purchase of our new home. Her insights into the process of negotiations with the seller helped us to get our home at a fair price. Additionally after the home inspection she was able to get all items and more addressed. It was clear Pam was working for us and looking out for our needs through the entire process.

Pam answered our questions promptly, addressed our concerns and never pressured us. Her enthusiasm through the entire purchase of our home was infectious. Thank you Pam for everything!

We were really pleased to work with you and feel that you took care of every aspect in the best possible way AND with the confidence, grace, and balanced sense of timing that really made the process a breeze. It was clear that your market knowledge and in-depth perspective on the Encinitas/Carlsbad community allowed you to position our home in the best possible light. Further, when multiple offers came in, your expertise was apparent in the evaluation, negotiation, and ultimate decision. Your guidance and focus on ensuring the sale process moved efficiently was much appreciated - especially since I was already in the Bay Area for my new position. Thanks again, Pam. We've already recommended you to friends and, hopefully, we'll have an opportunity to work with you again!

"We can't say enough about Pam as a fantastic real estate agent in the Encinitas/North County area. We've bought and sold a number of homes in San Diego, but the experience of working with Pam was by far the best. And this was during a very difficult time in the market when prices were dropping and nothing was happening. Pam not only managed to find the best deal for us, she somehow managed to do it with her infectious enthusiasm, positive attitude, and remarkable attention to detail. We weren't even in town for most of the process, and still Pam managed to keep us informed of every development, keep our house in great shape, find contractors to fix things, and keep the house showing. Her persistence, experience, and unmatched knowledge of the area, the schools, the difference between subdivisions, and competitive homes on the market were clearly key to positioning and selling our house in a very difficult time. We wholeheartedly recommend Pam to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area, and we know we'll be friends with her for years to come.

"Property shopping is no simple task, but having an exceptional realtor to
guide you through the difficult decision making process can be the
difference between considering and purchasing your next home. As first time
home buyers, we needed an experienced realtor, and Pam O'Donnell was that
and so much more! If you are seeking a "go-getter" of an agent, look no
further. Pam's professionalism paired with her knowledge of the area and
constant consideration of her client's needs are just a few characteristics
that make her highly recommendable. With Pam's unparalleled assistance and
team of experts, we were successful in closing escrow in less than 30 days!
Proof that actions can speak louder than words, so if you invite Pam to help
you find your next home, we are confident you too will gain a positive
experience and trusted realtor!"

Pam O'Donnell

Pam was very diligent and patient in assisting us purchase our dream home. We wanted a pool, a view, outdoor living space, 5 bedrooms, good schools, and move-in ready; and we wanted all this within a budget. Thank you, Pam, for showing us so many homes, being a good listener, and being a good representative of us in negotiations. We love our home!
