Highly likely to recommend

"I met Jeannie at an open house and based on her knowledge, professionalism, and honesty I immediately asked her to help me buy a home. Working under very difficult circumstances (I was often out of town and needed to purchase a home quickly), Jeannie made sure the entire process (negotiations through to closing) ran smoothly. Since settling into my new home I often ask Jeannie for referrals (contractors, gardeners) and am never disappointed in her choices. I give Jeannie a five-star recommendation without hesitation!


Jeannie helped us find our second home in San Diego. I don't think there is anyone else in the real estate market who knows the San Diego inventory as well as Jeannie. We saw 30 properties in 3 days and are thrilled with our purchase. Jeannie's knowledge helped guide us to the right building in the right neighborhood for us. Buying our condo could not have been a more positive experience.

My sister recommended Jeannie to me, a top ranked, but now retired Coldwell Banker Agent. We needed to sell the property that my mother-in-law had occupied for 70+ year--and we had to do it remotely given that we live 600 miles away from it. Jeannie gave us excellent advice and found us a buyer within a couple days. She then took on a messy situation with a combative tenant on that property who was unwilling to vacate. Jeannie was beyond professional in every regard, patient, kind, absolutely straightforward, and unfailingly firm without ever a confrontational retort despite numerous situations that would have caused a lesser mortal to "lose it." My respect for her borders on awe, and we have become lifetime-- though geographically distant--friends. You can't go wrong hiring Jeannie Thompson to represent you in any real estate transaction.


I was fortunate to have selected Jeannie Thompson to represent me in my first purchase of a San Diego house. As an out of town buyer who was able to be physically in San Diego for only a few days, I relied on her to be very active in the decision making process as well as guiding the transaction to a successful conclusion. She was very insightful in helping formulate questions and concerns and then interfaced effectively with the listing broker to provide me with thorough and complete answers. In addition to her professionalism, she was genuinely a pleasure to work with and made the whole experience a memorable one.

Jeannie Thompson provides superb service to our family under difficult and trying conditions, In the first place all actions, negotiating, and processes were done "at distance" where both my brother and I were located in two separate locations over 500 miles from San Diego. The communications problems could have been enormous, however, Jeannie exhibited exceptional skills in all aspects of the sale. Outstanding coordination. Outstanding finesse. Outstanding insights and anticipation... all of which resulted in win-win for client and customer.

Jeannie Thompson guided me through the selling process of long-term family home in La Jolla. She used every marketing vehicle to expose the house to the market, jumped in to overcome every hurdle through the final sales process of home inspections, termite work and escrow closing. I was an out of town seller and Jeannie acted upon my behalf to find qualified and honest companies to complete the work required by the home inspection, and assisted with logistics of the move out. I feel she was there at every crossroads to guide the sale through to conclusion in a highly professional manner with extreme attention to detail and a can do attitude. A seller would be extremely fortunate to have Jeannie Thompson as their agent.


Jeannie was excellent. She found our dream home after going through our needs and also nice-to-have's. She was always available and provided complete answers to all our questions. She was fun to go look at houses with. She was knowledgeable to attend inspections with. She was sweet to give us as much time as we needed. We consider her our friend now who attends our family dinners, who bakes us cookies, who we laugh with... She is a wonderful real estate professional. My husband and I recommend her highly.
