I wasn’t quite ready to sell my primary residence when I first met Helen Spear but was deeply impressed with her professionalism and the depth of her real estate experience here in San Diego. When the time for me to relocate arrived, she and her broker partner, Traci Stevens, stepped up impressively to brief me on a marketing plan that ended up working smoothly and quickly with results that notably exceeded my expectations. During the process it seemed as though I must be their only client, even though that was far from being true, and communication could not have been more efficient and effective. So, what will likely be my last real estate transaction was the best one ever for me, from both a financial perspective and the overall quality of the experience that Helen Spear and Traci Stevens designed and flawlessly operationalized.

Helen Spear did a truly excellent job for my best friend moving to La Jolla from the East Coast. Helen was able to navigate an incredibly competitive market on behalf of my friend. She responded immediately, attended a last-minute open house right away, and was always available whenever necessary. In addition, her entire team provided a concierge-type of service to attend to move-in matters before my friend could arrive. I recommend Helen Spear Group without hesitation. They are valuable professionals.

Helen Spear deserves a 10-star review! I found Helen through my best friend who lives in Pacific Beach and had seen Helen’s volume of for sale signs around her area. Although I hadn’t met Helen in person yet and was buying a property sight unseen from the East Coast, she managed to secure the house against 19 other cash offers. I recommend Helen with great enthusiasm!

We have worked with several agents the past few years. Helen is the best. She was always on top of every aspect of the process and always available by phone or text. She anticipated possible issues, brought them to our attention, and worked tirelessly on our behalf to secure the best outcome. Helen and her staff made the whole process as easy as it could be.

From the very first moment of our interview with Helen, we were impressed with how well prepared, knowledgeable, and responsive she was to our needs and interests. She is a true professional who attended to every minute detail of our home sale. She sold our home in one month for well over our asking price. It all happened so quickly!

Helen was very thorough and professional in marketing our home in North Pacific Beach. She did an excellent job keeping us fully informed concerning feedback from other agents and potential buyers. She also respectfully listened to our comments and suggestions and answered all of our questions throughout the selling process. Helen’s knowledge of the real estate market and years of experience were very valuable in getting our home sold at a great price.

If you have a home to sell (or if you want to buy) you can do no better than Helen Spear for your agent. Helen is professional, very responsive, and an excellent negotiator. Not only did she sell our property, she also helped us to buy a replacement home as well. Since our sale property was a vacation rental, Helen had to be very flexible in working around our tenants so as to minimize any lost rental income. On the purchase, we were very impressed with her creativity in crafting an offer with terms that assured we would get the property we wanted in an extremely competitive environment that included offers from 6 other potential buyers. We can highly recommend Helen and her team and hope to work with her again on any future real estate transactions.

Helen was excellent during our home search. We worked with her and Trevor Pike, and they were both incredibly patient and helpful. They truly feel like friends and our home-buying experience was completely painless — they helped navigate us through the whole experience seamlessly. I’d highly recommend to anyone, and if we ever buy or sell in the future I’d reach out to Helen first!

I can’t say enough about Helen and her team. We gave Helen a year to find our dream home, and she did it in a matter of days at an amazing price. Her market knowledge allowed us to analyze, negotiate, and move quickly on the deal. She worked into the night and over the weekend to make sure we got it under contract within 72 hours from our initial viewing. She valued our time and made sure the communication was clear, prompt, and to the point. There wasn’t a question she couldn’t answer during the process and she truly has her clients’ best interest at heart. We are so excited and can’t wait to see what other deals we can put together!

Helen was a pleasure to work with. Made the deal happen off market, professionally, quickly, and assisted in all aspects of the deal from lease-back to escrow to underwriting, keeping everyone on task and communicating strategically and courteously. Look forward to working with her again.

Helen was fantastic throughout the whole process. I would recommend her to anyone. She brought me the opportunity, helped me secure the property, and managed the process along the way. Complete 5+ star review.
J. Wade — Pacific Beach, CA
Helen is an incredibly hardworking, professional real-estate agent. We worked with her on both the buying and selling side and I would strongly recommend her for both transactions. On the selling side, Helen did a tremendous amount of preparation, which was obvious as soon as we hit the market. We sold our house for more than the asking price and received multiple offers on the first day. I give credit to Helen’s intense preparation and professional approach to selling. On the buying side, Helen managed to find us multiple homes in our price range in a very competitive market. Some of the homes were not even on the market yet so it took a lot of the stress off our family in making a rapid decision. We ended up selecting a home that was in a highly competitive bid process and we got the home. Again, I credit Helen’s knowledge of real estate to make sure that our offer was competitive and attractive to the sellers.
J. Streske — Pacific Beach, CA
I cannot praise Helen Spear and her team enough! She is professional, knowledgeable, and so kind. She took extra time to walk us through each step of the selling and buying process, and was always available to answer any questions we had. She sold our home at $20K over asking in 3 days! She also negotiated a great price and terms on an incredible new home for us. She consistently went above and beyond for us, from providing us electricians and landscapers, to simply checking in. This has been easier than I ever imagined. Even in a global pandemic, she has provided seamless, consistent service at 0% stress to us. Do yourself a favor and go with Helen and her team.
