Client Testimonials:
"Karen was extremely friendly, helpful and professional with our recent house purchase. We had several constraints that forced us into looking for an extended period of time across a wide area in greater San Diego, and Karen worked diligently with us as we visited a large number of houses for sale. Karen and the other agents were also very knowledgeable and helpful on how to win a bidding process in this competitive market, eventually giving us valuable input on buying a house and doing some remodeling work to make that house into our home."

"The review of the Worlds Best Realtor: Karen was our realtor on our first home buy and we could not be happier. Genuine, caring, and knowledgeable-we knew we had the right person by our side! My husband and I had no idea how the process worked and what we wanted was loosely defined. Karen was so helpful in having us really discuss our wants and needs, was diligent in making sure we had houses to see and was so helpful in helping us make decisions we needed prior to submitting offers. It didn't take long for us to get an offer accepted! Her patience with us during this process and her helpfulness in answering questions was so appreciated. She was on top of everything from start to finish! If ever we need to sell or buy again, we will be going to Karen at Ocean Living Realty first. Thanks Karen! "

"Karen Bombaci was our realtor in the purchase of a property in San Diego (Ocean Beach) CA., which closed escrow in January, 2017. Karen was helpful with her extensive knowledge of the San Diego real estate market. She was responsive by email and text during the house search, and was always readily available for home tours. In our opinion, Karen is an ethical and trustworthy realtor who works very hard on behalf of her client's best interests."
