ANNE HERRIN - Your San Diego Realtor!



We have been clients of Anne Herrin for several years. During those years she has helped in numerous ways, always with a smile, to find or sell a home for us. She never gives up! Anne is an incredible agent and her knowledge of the market trends has served us well. We feel so lucky to have Anne as our agent. Each time we would come to San Diego she would be prepared to show us every home which might fit our needs. When we were in Gig Harbor, Washington, she would provide us with accurate online information and telephone support. She was there to answer any question we had. Anne is a true professional with the most charming and warm personality. Long days of house hunting were fun. She kept track of how our Gig Harbor home sale was moving along. She kept track of the home purchase of our San Diego condo seller. She was amazing! Did we mention we had no car available and were camping at Camperland in Pacific Beach. Anne picked us up every day in her adorable electric car and was prepared to show us many types of homes. We finally found, thanks to Anne’s perseverance, the perfectly priced, large, view condo. We LOVE it! She kept close tabs on every step of the sale. Her untiring energy, professional knowledge and positive attitude makes her a true asset.

Anne is an exceptional agent! After bad experiences with two other agents who were either unethical, lazy or not very knowledgeable, I was fortunate enough to meet Anne at an open house she held one day in June 2016, about 6 months after my house search had begun. I was impressed with her candor and openness, so asked if she might help me find a home in Pt. Loma or PB that I love, meets my criteria AND I can afford (a very tall order in those neighborhoods given my income). Over the next 6 months, Anne must have shown me at least 25-30 houses. I walked away from escrow twice after significant issues were revealed during inspections; and I lost one property because the unscrupulous listing agent later admitted he set up a deal with the sellers that netted them more if he represented both them and the buyer. During all of that, Anne always had my back and went way above and beyond my expectations to put a deal together so that I could buy a home I loved. Even during vacations with her family in Hawaii and Costa Rica, she was in touch with me by phone or e-mail almost every day. She is not only tireless and diligent about every aspect of her work, but always on time for appointments, 100% honest and fun to be with. She found the house I now own the morning it was first listed and as a result, I was the first to see it and have an opportunity to submit an offer. Escrow on this house probably set a record for the number of problems that arose – in this case, caused by either the seller or the owner of the house she was buying concurrently. Anne patiently and tirelessly worked to keep escrow from unraveling and on track for closing. Thanks to her, it finally came together and the sale closed. I cannot recommend Anne enough! If I ever sell my new home and buy another, I would not consider using anyone but her as my agent.

We met Anne years ago through a Trulia request. We couldn’t have found a better Realtor suited for our needs as first time home buyers. She was incredibly patient, knowledgeable and guided us seamlessly throughout the entire process. She was always happy to meet with us to discuss any questions we had, would set up a showing quickly and was always available to us anytime via email, text or phone. Anne provided us with incredible assistance before, during and after our purchase with any issues that arose – even answering questions related to our closing while on vacation or helping us figure out how to initiate our first home warranty service request long after our purchase. We highly recommend Anne for your realty needs. You won’t be disappointed.

We met Anne through my mother’s house search. Turns out my mom didn’t end up buying a house, my husband and I did! Anne was so fun, accommodating, professional and great to work with. Being first time home buyers, she was very patient with us and made the whole process seem easier than we would have expected. We love the house Anne helped us get into, but in a way we miss the house hunting with her! We highly recommend Anne Herrin for any real estate needs.

We recommend Anne as your future Realtor because of how hard working, flexible, knowledgeable, and familiar she is with all parts of San Diego. We honestly felt comfortable every step of the way and she gave amazing advice. We are first time home buyers and have been in our home for four months. We love our home! No buyers remorse!! At first we were hesitant because home inventory was low and prices were rising. We wanted to live in a very specific area of Clairemont. Working with Anne was most pleasing, she made buying our home surprisingly seamless. We strongly recommend Anne, she will be there for you at the drop of a hat. She knows real estate, listens, and most importantly knows how to close. You wont regret it one bit. We have tons of Realtor friends and family…we went with Anne because of how hard working she is and honest.

Anne did an exceptional job helping us sell our Point Loma house. Anne’s professionalism and ability to deal with all of the challenges that came up made this sale happen. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable of the market conditions. If not for her good advice and attention to the necessary details, there is no doubt our house would not have sold so quickly. Thank you Anne!

Jill and Frank Polese


Anne Herrin is by far the finest Realtor I’ve ever worked with, knowledgeable, thorough, and as dedicated to her clients as she is to Loma Portal historic homes. She provided care and concern in the selling of my Loma Portal home, which sold in five days, due to her excellent preparation and accurate pricing. Anne is the definition of real estate excellence. 

Linda Blair


Anne couldn’t have been more helpful in my search for my forever home! She really listened to what I wanted in a home and helped me find the perfect match in liberty Station. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Her knowledge of the real estate market and especially the available properties in Point Loma was great.

Joan Thompson


Anne is the best agent I have ever worked with. She is very knowledgeable about Point Loma and all the surrounding areas. She always worked with my crazy schedule and she never got frustrated when I wanted to see more homes. We saw over 65 homes. She always gave her honest opinion and was patient when I needed to stop looking at properties because the timing wasn’t right. She never pushed me and ended up becoming a friend!

Katherine Lynch


We recently both sold and purchased homes in Point Loma.  These transactions went quickly and smoothly due to the efforts of our outstanding local agent, Anne Herrin.  During our purchase, having an agent familiar with the local market quickly directed us to the appropriate properties and allowed us to understand pricing in this market.  The directions of our agent, Anne Herrin, greatly assisted us in securing funding for our new loan and in presenting a competitive offer to the seller.  Without Anne’s efforts and presentation to the seller and seller’s agent, the purchase would not have occurred.  Secondly, while representing us during the sale of our home, Anne Herrin, marketed the property with a strategy that resulted in a rapid sale.  The immediate open houses showings, appropriate pricing, and effective photo brochures created large and early foot traffic and several offers.

Working with Anne Herrin was a pleasure.  She listened to our ideas patiently, answered our many questions and helped us sell our home in Point Loma at the price point we desired.  Anne is knowledgeable about real estate and specifically our market, is very efficient, and also communicates well which is an absolute critical trait.  To top it off, Anne is a very warm person, who always comes with a smile.

My husband and I were looking for a home but we couldn’t afford most of San Diego’s home prices even in the beginning of this recession. After some searching for a Realtor who was patient and knew we were looking for foreclosures, Anne gladly took us on and was so dedicated to educating herself about foreclosures when she specialized in much higher-end homes. She is the best Realtor and found us the perfect home to start our family. I’m quite surprised she hasn’t won best Realtor of San Diego yet. She will always be our Realtor, as she always has our best interest in mind. She is genuine and listens to what you really want. All Realtors should be like Anne! She is the best ever! From a picky home buyer with a low budget

I highly recommend Anne as a real estate agent for transactions in and around San Diego, and Point Loma in particular. I first met Anne a few years ago when inquiring about a home in Point Loma. After a brief conversation, I immediately recognized she was different than other real estate agents I had worked with. She provided extremely professional, pertinent, unbiased, helpful, and honest information. Quite frankly, I had never experienced such high quality service before. As a result, I have relied on her assistance and expertise for all my real estate inquiries and transactions since. I continue to be impressed and satisfied with the service she provides. In short, Anne adds significant value to transactions through her professional expertise as well as her personalized attention. Despite an increasingly digital real estate market where buyers and sellers can perform many real estate transactions ‘online’, I still always choose to work with Anne because she adds a dimension of personal and professional value well beyond anything the internet provides. For these reasons, I highly recommend Anne and am confident that she will contribute valuable assistance to any real estate transaction.

The home buying process for me took almost 2 years and Anne was amazing every step of the way. She was so patient with me and it made me feel very comfortable through the ups and downs. No matter the time or day, she was always there to answer questions and give advice whenever I asked. She went  above and beyond for me to help make sure I was getting the best deal possible. Anne’s knowledge and expertise made me feel very confident knowing I purchased the perfect home. I would HIGHLY recommend Anne to anyone looking for Real Estate needs. Thanks Anne!

Anne helped myself and my wife find and purchase a home in San Diego, closing last month.  We think she did a very good job, and we were pleased by her efforts and diligence.  She was responsive, conscientious, professional, and committed through a long search process including a few transactions that fell through.  We would use her services again, and refer her to others.



Anne is very hardworking and showed us homes on any day of the week and at any time. She was extremely knowledgeable about Point Loma and all the different neighborhoods. She was very knowledgeable about the different types of homes in terms of features and benefits and also things that one needs to be aware of as a buyer that may be a problem. Anne is honest and trustworthy , she is 100% accountable for anything that is her responsibility in the closing process. In summary she is the perfect real estate agent anyone could ask for and we were lucky to have worked with her.

Rob Malave


Anne did a superlative job in helping us buy one house and sell another. The purchase was the culmination of many, many months of assisting us look for a new home, and involved an emotional home seller with a sought-after property. Anne’s professionalism, and professional reputation with the seller’s agent, made this deal happen. With our sale, Anne faced a challenging market, but her expertise allowed us to price our house fairly and it sold relatively quickly. Anne is a consummate professional, full of good advice and with an attention to both the larger picture and the necessary details.

Robin Traylor


We want to thank Anne so much for her patience in helping us find our new home. She made sure we were qualified and then in order for us to be ready, when just the right home came along, she encouraged us to be organized. We refinanced our fist home, when the interest rates were low, in order to have the down payment ready. This made everything go smoothly at a time when bidding wars had started to make it difficult to buy homes. I look forward to working with Anne again.

Monica Fuentes


Working with Anne was very comfortable even when things on the other side became difficult. Anne always came back with answers and often solutions. In the end we got the property we wanted and are now on our way to making it our home for years to come. I would highly recommend using Anne for any of your real estate needs .

After my father passed away, my mother was looking to sell her house that she had lived in for 50 years.  As you can imagine, this was a very emotional event in all of our lives.  We knew that we had to find a real estate agent with the right mix of patience, market knowledge, compassion and integrity.  Anne Herrin possessed all of these qualities, which made the sales process much easier for everyone, especially my mother.  I cannot tell you how much we appreciate everything that Anne did for my mom and we were able to conclude the sales process in a very expeditious and efficient manner.  Additionally, we received a very fair price and my mother is now able to live comfortably for the rest of her life. If you are looking for an agent that possess integrity, knowledge, compassion and the ability to “Get The Job Done,” I would highly recommend considering Anne Herrin as your agent.  There is nobody better.

Bruce Ives – A Very Satisfied Client


Anne has been our Realtor in San Diego for the last two years. I cannot say enough on her behalf. She is professional, kind, attentive to details and oh so patient. She has shown us between 30-50 homes (because we are indecisive about what we want). We come in from Colorado and contact her last minute and she has been there for us completely every time….,at least 10 times. As I said, she takes care of every detail and I would add that she has gone the extra mile in all situations. My husband and I would highly recommend her to any and all, as we have total confidence in her ability and performance.

I first met Anne at a showing for one of her properties in Linda Vista and she was extremely knowledgeable about the Point Loma area where I live. When I inquired about rental/investment properties she was able to provide a great deal of honesty and information on her personal foray into the business side of things. After setting me up on an email “drip” of duplexes, we were off and running. Within 1 week we went looking through properties and single family homes. Within 2 weeks we were putting in an offer. Escrow closed 4 weeks later. She worked tirelessly to get all the proper documentation in order, through her attention to detail, I even secured my property when the other buyer (who had bid higher) put the offer on the wrong contract. She went above and beyond the usual role of a real estate agent including helping to get rid of the seller’s personal property and really working after hours on my schedule to get things signed and delivered. She even worked on July 4th to make sure we would not lose out on our property. We worked with her again on the sale of our home in Point Loma and she was spot on once again. She worked tirelessly to show the house (it seemed like every other day!) and was thoughtful about us having 2 young kids at the time. She was open and honest about potential buyers and was always up front about pricing and what we needed to do sell the house (we were involved in a time sensitive contingency offer on another house). I really can’t say enough good words about her efficiency and dedication and will always look to her for future real estate matters.

When it comes to describing Anne Herrin and her ability as a Realtor, a litany of words beginning in “P” come to mind, “professional, punctual, passionate, persistent, pleasant, personable and positive.” My wife Dana and I made the decision to move out of state and had the desire to list and sell our home within a narrow time frame. We interviewed several candidates and selected Anne as our agent. From that moment forward there was no looking back. Anne quickly shifted into high gear getting the selling process underway. We were photographed, listed, marketed and our property entered escrow in a mere 13 days at a price we found acceptable. We can sum up the entire experience with Anne with two additional “P” words and those are “PLEASED & PROVEN”.

Rob and Dana Godek


Anne is a super agent. She is a delight – always helpful, always on your side protecting your interests; and in the end she is organized and she finishes up with a neat folder with copies of everything.  She really is the best.

Late this spring our family learned it would need to purchase a condominium in San Diego before my granddaughter starts high school in late August. Neither my son’s family nor my wife or I were familiar with San Diego, much less its real estate market. The first weekend in May my son and I flew to SD and met for first time with Anne. She virtually gave us her whole weekend showing us the neighborhoods, a variety of properties and hearing what our needs/goals were.  We left SD knowing a bit more about the housing market and that we had, in fact, met a wonderful, committed and knowledgeable realtor. Within only a few days Anne sent us video clips of a property that had just come on the market and was in the area near the school my granddaughter would be attending. It was time for us to again fly down to SD to visit the property and, if reasonable, write an offer. My daughter-in-law and I flew down for the day, were met at the airport by Anne and visited the property. We wrote an offer and left our deposit at the title company. Anne drove us back to the airport. Anne guided us through the most complicated escrow I had ever experienced (and I am a retired real estate broker).  Despite needing to change lenders and overcome unexpected obstacles, Anne tirelessly got us through escrow and we now own the desired property. Throughout, Anne was warm, friendly, available and patient with us. She kept lenders, listing agents and title officers on track as she guided all of us to closing this escrow. Thank you Anne

I was fortunate to have been introduced to Anne seven years ago when my wife and I were looking for a new home. At the time we were not entirely sure what we were looking for, beyond more room for our growing family and staying in the Ocean Beach/Point Loma area. Anne kept us up to date on new properties and was incredibly patient with us as buyers. Showing us numerous properties until we eventually found our dream home in a dream location, a couple of blocks to the beach and close to Sunset View Elementary School. After which she coordinated and guided us through the offer and counter process at a time when I was overseas for work and my wife was traveling summer vacation with our sons. I will always greatly appreciate how well Anne navigated and helped make the process as smooth as possible. When it came time to sell our rental property in Ocean Beach, it was only natural to call Anne as her easy going and detail oriented personality had been such a good fit for us in the past. Anne did a wonderful job of helping us prepare and sell our rental. She also was tremendous about coordinating with our tenant throughout the process. I would highly recommend Anne for her attention to detail, knowledge of the process and genuine good personality. She knows when to advise and when to push. She was a great asset guiding us through both buying and selling.

My sister and I want to express our heartfelt appreciation for all of Anne’s helpfulness, efficiency and cooperation in selling both my mother’s homes after her death. It was a stressful time and Anne made the process as easy as it could be. We both want to thank her for all her hard work, excellent service, frequent communication and dependability. She went above and beyond and we would certainly recommend her services to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a home.

Rachel Thomas


My wife and I were connected to Anne through a mutual friend. After speaking with a number of other local real estate agents then talking with Anne, it was clear from the beginning that Anne needed to be our partner in the search for a home. From the get-go, it was clear that Anne’s friendliness, integrity, first-hand knowledge of the market, and strong work ethic would be a winning package. After weeks of in-depth research and multiple visits to more than a dozen properties, we found a unit in Point Loma that worked very nicely for our plans. Throughout the offer and purchase process, Anne’s advocacy, seeming tirelessness and positive attitude were exceedingly helpful.  If the opportunity to recommend Anne to others appears, we will do so without hesitation. It has been an absolute pleasure working with her.

Lawrence and Miyoko Smalheiser


Anne Herrin is an extremely professional, very knowledgeable and personable agent. Her ethical standards are very high. In the sale of our home her knowledge of the market enabled us to choose a price point that resulted in multiple offers in a short period of time. Several offers were significantly above the asking price and our home ultimately sold for cash at a significant premium. We, unreservedly, recommend Anne as a very competent and thoroughly knowledgeable realtor.

Lynn Render


After meeting with several realtors we selected Anne to represent our home and wow were we happy we did. Anne provided fabulous service, producing professional quality circulars and hosting several open house events that provided the traction to get our house sold. We had the house under contract  in 5 days. The escrow process was very difficult and Anne worked to ensure that the buyers were comfortable, walking them and us through the sticking points. Anne even had her husband drop in and provide his expertise on some of the contingencies. In the end we all were satisfied and exited the process whole and happy . What more could you ask for?! If you’re looking for a realtor you will find none better than Anne Herrin
