Tina Balch

Tina is a wonderful person to work with, her knowledge surpasses all. She is such a kind hearted person who treats you like family. Her phone is always open and she never ignores your call or email. I have already recommended her to my family and friends, and will continue to do so, as soon as my husband and I are in the position to purchase again, we will for sure call Tina. She also has a wonderful team that helps her, and they all know how to ease you through the process. Listing your home as a shortsale is not a pleasant experience, but Tina and her crew, made it so much easier and less stressful. I’m hoping I never have to go through it again, but if I do, I know Tina will be there for me. She is someone you can trust, and she will be honest and not give you the run around.

It was great working with Tina! She knew what we wanted and how to negotiate to get it. I would definitely recommend anyone to work with Tina and her staff.

Being first time homeowners, we were very inexperienced about everything. From our very first meeting Tina was very helpful and explained the different types of homes for sale for example, foreclosures, short sale, and the regular seller. As time passed she was very patient and helpful in answering all my questions. She not only was a great agent she became someone I talked to on a daily basis regarding various things, schools in the area, shopping centers, etc. She made me feel comfortable in asking questions and never made me feel intimidated or ignorant. Tina was very knowledgeable about all the areas we visited and was very quick to call or follow up with the seller’s agents. She also made appointments very quickly and did not waste anytime when I wanted to see a residence. She also gave us many choices and never let our hopes down. She always knew how to keep us going even after the 4 months of searching. She became familiar with what my family needed and what we were looking for. Her skills in pricing and comparison helped us very much when trying to decide how much our offer should be. Finally, with the help of Tina we are now new first time homeowners! I would recommend her to anyone who is trying to buy a home she’s friendly, knowledgeable, and very professional.

With hopes of purchasing our first home, Tina Balch and her Team really pulled through for us from start to finish!! She was very knowledgable about all aspects of “Reality” and answered all of our questions and concerns thoroughly. In search for the perfect home, Tina and her team were able to meet all deadlines with great confidence and assurance. Working with Tina and her team was truly a pleasure. From start to finish they are there for their client every step of the way. We would definitely recommend her and her team to anybody who is searching for that perfect home!

Tina was very committed and professional. She continued working diligently to make the sale happen and always kept a positive attitude even with these difficult times. I would highly recommend her and would use her again on my next transaction.

Thank you Tina

Tina is an extraordinary hard-working, dedicated, & honest person. Her knowledge, objectivity and diligence in helping us to find a property that fit our needs and likes was superlative.

In addition, Tina is an absolutely terrific person. She is smart, funny, and very, very caring. In all, she is positively remarkable and we fully believe that it was very much due to Tina that we were able to find and purchase the home that fulfilled our expectations, budget, and dreams.

A little over 2 years ago, I worked with Tina Balch and her team on a shortsale of my condo, that was a smooth and pleasant process, now that my husband and I are back in a good financial state, we contacted Team Balch again to help us find a house to buy. Tina was wonderful, she spent countless days and nights showing us numerous houses and sent me listings on a daily bases, when we finally decided on the one we liked, Team Balch went into action. We are now once again New Homeowners. Tina and her team are an amazing group of ladies who put their hearts and souls into everything they do. God Bless you Team Balch, You will all be forever my go to gals when we want to purchase another home. I highly recommend Tina Balch for doing a Shortsale or purchasing a home. Wish I could have used more than 5 stars.

Tina is a fantastic realtor; responsive and genuine, I was impressed with her from the first moment we spoke on the phone. Tina’s demeanors reminds me of a good consultant, giving you the information you need, when you need it. She guided us thru a very stressful time, professionalism..perfected.

5 user3685454

Tina was recommended to me by a friend as a “short sale bulldog” haha she definitely lived up to her name. My husband and I met with her and knew right away that it was a great fit she understood the area and what we were looking for. She doesn’t waste your time with showing you houses that do not fit your needs which I liked. She is always available and fast to respond to emails or texts. This was our first time buying a home which was a short sale and she did an amazing job explaining the process and helped with having all documents signed online so my hand didn’t hurt. We found our dream home, moved in and a month later got pregnant with our first son =) I without a doubt would recommend her to anyone I know and have. She is an outstanding realtor and a lifetime friend.

One word, two syllables: AWESOME… That’s right; that’s Tina Balch! Tina was referred to me by a friend who helped her find her dream home. The first time I met Tina, it was very impressive… She was very professional and I liked when she gave that homebuying 101; it was very helpful especially for a first time homebuyer like me. I was a happy client: From the e-signing, barney-style question and answer, home inspection, and most especially on the day I pick up the key…

I am truly happy and blessed for Tina… I didn’t just gained an agent, but a friend for life! Much mahalo, my dear!!!

Tina Balch is my realtor for life! She’s one of the best out there! Believe me, I know! I should know because my husband and I were able to not only buy a home but also sold one through her help. We were able to avoid a short sale because of her good marketing skills and strategies. She is aggressive in selling your home and also aggressive in finding you the right home at the right price that fits your budget and needs. She’s on top of everything! Tina and her Team Balch are indeed “The Team That Friends Trust and Recommend”. Since they leave their clients with good experience, they keep getting recommended… and that speaks highly of them! Not only are they professionals who make things happen but more importantly, like good friends, they really genuinely look out for your best interest!

What an awesome realtor!

Tina was recommended to me by an old classmate and she delivered! She walked me through the sale of my parents’ home from start to finish and stuck by me, even after I ran into legal issues that prevented me from selling the home the first time around. Once I took care of the title issues, Tina was there to support me once again, and we had an offer in lesss than a week!

Tina was very familiar with the area, provided me with a list of comps and helped to price our home just right!

I live in another city, and one might think that this would be an issue, but it wasn’t! Tina constantly communicated with me via phone, text, and e-mail. She even made it convenient for me to sign all of my documents on line! In addition, she provided me with numerous resources including names and numbers for terminte companies, handymen for repairs, and even real estate attorneys to help with unforeseen title issues.

The stress and grief of losing my mother and having to sell my childhood home was lessened by Tina’s hard work. She went above and beyond my expectations and made the entire process as easy as pie. I would recommend Tina to anyone who desires first class service delivered with a smile and a warm heart. What a blessing to me and my family!

I bought my first house this November. As a first timer im clueless with all the process and steps of buying a house, Tina and her team assisted me from the beginning till we closed it and until now im still free to ask her questions. We have the biggest bump/hump throughout the process but she was very calm and thought how to resolved it right away. I highly recommend her and her team if you’re planning on getting your dream house.

We’ve been to 2 realtors when me and my husband we’re looking for a house. Until a friend of mine recommended Tina to us, there is a lot of difference from the previous realtors. Tina is very accomodating and professional, friendly and most of all God Loving person, that’s why we highly recommend Tina to our friends who needs help in buying a house.

5 oldbluehat75

After a round of interviews with local realtors, I decided to move forward with Tina based primarily on three things: her unbelievable Marketing plan, her knowledge and experience, and the general feeling that she would be excellent to work with. I told her when we started that I was going to be very specific about how we blended her proven marketing plan with my personal thoughts to stand out in the given market in our neighborhood. She listened, she agreed and disagreed, but most of all, she communicated and was always honest and respectful. That’s EXACTLY what I wanted, and EXACTLY what I got. Once the process began, it was absolutely FLAWLESS. Her promises were kept, the timeline adhered to, and our house hit the market with MAJOR momentum out of the gates. Her communication couldn’t have been better. When I called, she answered. When I had a question, she had an answer. I felt as if I was her ONLY client, and obviously that’s not the case…but that’s truly how I felt. Our work together ultimately ended up selling our house within a week at 20k over asking price and setting a new record in our neighborhood! Honestly, things could not have gone better and one of the best parts is, we had fun doing it! Tina is a wonderful agent and has a strong team behind her. The ONLY downside is that we’re now 3000 miles away, but I KNOW Tina will be a good friend for a long, long time. I’d Highly recommend her to handle your realty transaction and experience all she has to offer. Thanks as always Tina!!! We made it happen well!

Tina is very professional and knowledgeable realtor…. my wife and I are first time home buyer we have been planning to buy but always get discourage when we look at all the things that needed to be done before even making an offer or looking at a house. Tina and her team made it so easy for us she found the house that fits our family and budget she never forced us into a house but made us feel that we are in control of the whole process… Tina was a blessing for us we did not just found a realtor but gained a true friend. I highly recomend Tina and her team for all your home buying needs and assistance.

Was interested in a specific house in Sorrento Valley – she responded in a very quick, professional, and delightful manner. Gave me the details about the property and some info about the neighborhood. Didn’t get a chance to work with her for too long, but I suspect it would be a treat!

5 itay23

My husband and I decided to buy a condo in San Diego even though we live in Northern California. Tina and her team are very knowledgeable, helpful, and easy to work with. We had several “bumps” along the way but Tina was able to skillfully deliver what she had promised. She is very confident with her skills and it was reflected through a successful purchase. I would definitely recommend Tina and her team, it was a pleasure to work with people who really cared and had the best positive attitude. Go Team Balch!

I believe it was God’s will that led Tina to walk up to my apartment door one morning to hand me an invitation to her home buyers’ seminar at the local library that coming weekend. The weekend came, and even though I was tired as I had just gotten off of a graveyard shift, my curiosity about the home-buying process was so big that I went. Now that I look back to it, I realize that it was one of the best learning experiences I’ve had in my life. Before I met Tina, my knowledge of real estate was just a little more than zero. Now, not only has my knowledge grown tremendously, but I’ve also been living in a home that I’m proud to call my own. Thanks to Tina and the rest of her team! I purchased my very first home a couple of months ago, and I am glad to say that the process was so much easier than I had expected. Tina was always fast and responsive, and I truly felt that she was working towards my best interest. We were able to close the deal much quicker than promised, and buy the property for less than its appraised value! Despite her busy schedule, Tina is always approachable and will answer all of my questions in a prompt manner. She is also very open to sharing her knowledge with other people, especially young professionals like myself, to help them become aware of the opportunities available to achieve financial growth. She still continues to host seminars for first-time home buyers up to this day. I would definitely recommend Tina to anyone as she is not only a great realtor but also a great person. I am truly grateful to have worked with her!

Purchasing a house contingency to selling your existing property is not easy but with Tina’s expertise we were able to survive both. You can call Tina anytime of the day for concerns and she will get back to you right away with feedback. She is highly recommended.

Tina and her team partnered with McLeod & Assoc. out of Walnut, Ca to provide a comprehensive and thorough search of Southern California buyers. They had prepared a beautiful professional video complete with a drone camera with birds-eye shots of the property. (It really made the sale, when we talked to the buyer) On top of that, their open house (luau) brought in realtors from all over the county. The buyer ultimately came from LA at full price which was $50 more per square ft than any previously sold comp over the last 3 years.

My husband and I are a military family who moved to San Diego in 2011. We decided in 2012 that we wanted to buy a house and was referred to Tina through a family member. We ended up buying a brand new condo in Chula Vista and Tina was amazing at helping us with everything. She was there for every process while the home was getting built and even came to the design center to help us design our first home! 2 and a half years later, my husband got new orders and we had to move to Virginia. We knew without a doubt we had to get Tina to sell our house. Our home went pending within one week of listing! Amazing! She even helped us find a realtor in Virginia! She always kept us updated on everything and the whole buying and selling process was flawless. She’s very prompt, professional and always looks out for her clients best interest. 100% would recommend her to anyone.

Tina is very motivated real estate agent and love what she does for a living. I am very impressed how she took ownership of my property and market it until it gets sold. From day one she started an open house and that same day, we received multiple offers. We closed in a very short amount of time and our property were sold higher than my initial asking price. I highly recommend Tina whether you’re buying or selling property. You will not get disappointed.

Mrs. Balch was very professional in every step of the home sales experience. She was able to overcome some unforeseen hurdles to make the deal happen. She was creative in her solutions and keep us informed at all times… Very likely the deal would not have happened without her calm expertise… Very Good !!!

5 ap415er

I would definitely recommend Tina Balch as your future agent when it comes to finding the home you will be happy with! She is very quick to respond and she is always on top of her game. Thank you again Tina!!! You are awesome!!!!!!

5 zuser20160601235144144

Tina is very professional and helps ease all your home-buying jitters! She is highly knowledgeable not only on properties but also the loan process, as she was in that business once as well. We are happy that chose her and have been recommending her ever since!

5 jenny0818

I would highly recommend Tina Balch and her team to everyone who wants/ planning to buy a house! Tina Balch is very knowledgeable, very professional, patience and always make time to answers to any questions you asked. We were very happy and satisfied w/ Tina Balch and her Team!

She was great. She brought us to a few houses, took plenty of pictures of the houses, and had them uploaded and sent to us by the evening. She is very knowledgeable about Mira mesa. She made the process go very smoothly.

5 chrisjohnrabonza8

Working with Mrs. Tina Balch exceeded any of our expectations. As a first time homebuyer, we were not familiar with the terminology or the best process people to involve. Right away Tina was incredibly helpful and took time to sit down with us to determine what would be a good fit for us. We had a great experience working with her. I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of buying our dream home. Pam and I would like to thank you and your team for all your help in buying our first home. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent and a family friend. Thank you again Ate! God bless always. #GoTeamBalch #highlyrecommend

This review is coming a bit late, due to work timeline issues. I was very thoroughly impressed working with Tina on the purchase of my first condo in Mira Mesa. I didn’t know where to turn and found her through Zillow. She was the first agent to respond and her response times are record fast! Tina really knows her stuff when it comes to the area I wanted to be and what to expect in the home buying process. She helped walk me through the whole process and gave realistic expectations as a first time home buyer. She never once made me feel dumb, or pressured me into anything I felt uncomfortable with, and her patience is that of a saint. Even when things looked like the sale might not be able to go through due to unexpected financial set backs (FHA loan requirements) Tina went above and beyond to help me secure my new home. I am incredibly grateful that Tina came into my life, and I look forward to her expertise when I am ready to sell my condo and buy my forever home!

I can’t speak highly enough of my experience with Tina Balch and the rest of her team – Joy, Loida and Judy. I have known Tina for years as a realtor and a friend. There’s is no other realtor I can trust but her. She helped me buy my condo on 2005. Short sale the condo on 2012 and recently bought our home on 6/30/2017. The purchasing and selling of the properties went well and smoothly because she made sure we are notified of every single detail we need to know. She possess high quality of customer service and explicit knowledge with what she does. And if I were to sell and buy again, I can only trust Team Balch! Thank you Tina, Joy, Judy and Loida for all your assistance!

If you want an all star to sell your property look no further than Tina. I had multiple offers the day my property went on the market. We closed escrow in 25 days as well. She held my hand throughout the whole process and I was truly happy with everything she did for me. You will not find a better agent than Tina. Please consider her if you are looking to sell your property. You will not be disappointed.
