If you are ever selling your property and are lucky enough to get Helen, you'll definitely know what I mean! She will exceed all your expectations, both professionally and personally.She doesn't give 100%, she gives 5,000%. Her efficiency accompanied by her uncommon courtesy is a rare combination in today's world. Helen's motto appears to be "thoughtful consideration of others."As Booker T. Washington said: "Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way." That's Helen!For her sincere guidance and warmth, I am forever grateful.

Helen, I never give testimonials but I've broken my rule because I had to let you know that we deeply appreciate your experience and motivation in helping us buy our new home.

Who would have thought we would be in our first home less than 45 days after we made the offer?It was comforting to know that you were always available to answer questions and find the time to meet with us during our hectic schedules. For us the process was seamless and easy while you did all the hard work.You and your team made the VA Loan seem like an easy process, even through all the red tape. We highly recommend you and your staff to all families, military and civilian, who inquire about "good" real estate firms. We know that you'll help them as you helped us.Your smiling face and thoughtful words have helped us through even the most stressful times; which we have heard was much less stressful than most others feel when buying a new home. It has been a true pleasure on this side of the home buying experience.Thank you very much for all your help.It's nice to know that we can count on you again for any future real estate needs.

What a refreshing experience it was to have Helen Dalziel carry me through my recent home buying quest!

I am now happily situated in my new home and consider it my paradise.I met Helen at a condo she was showing . I listened to her as she talked to a group of potential home buyers and noticed how genuine and caring she was. I knew then that I wanted her as my agent.Even though I was not a 'big time' customer, she took me on and tenderly helped me in every aspect of purchasing a home. In the midst of her gentle ways, her professionalism was key with efficiency and integrity marking her every action. I was especially impressed with how she was a stickler to details and how she followed through on them. I felt that she went way beyond the normal duties of a Realtor and I am truly grateful.I will definitely recommend her to friends and family.

Helen Dalziel assisted us with the sale of our home in Carlsbad, and we wanted to take a moment to acknowledge her efforts and hard work, and also express our appreciation.

Here are our top ten reasons why we love 'Magic Helen':1. Even though we knew she had multiple listings, we were always made to feel as if we were her only clients, and her top priority.2. Her work behind the scenes is nothing short of miraculous - she just magically makes things happen, and it always appears effortless.3. She is completely and cheerfully accessible, round the clock, even for the smallest of reasons.4. Follow-through on issues and questions was swift and impeccable.5. Her scope and breadth of knowledge was impressive - she immediately earned our trust and continued to delight us all through the transaction.6. She always listened to our input, however trivial and took our requests to heart.7. Helen is always cheerful and optimistic; she kept us encouraged even as the market was slowing down.8. Her knowledge of the area is extensive and thorough, which surely makes a big impact on buyers.9. She presents facts and makes recommendations in a low-pressure manner, which greatly helps the decision making process.10. And, most importantly...even when buyers were becoming scarce, she found us a buyer that would love our home as much as we did.So, a big thank you to Helen! We are so very pleased with the outcome of our listing and would not hesitate to list with her again.

Aubrey and Claudia Kuepper

It is my great pleasure to offer this testimony for Helen Dalziel:My first contact with Helen was in a phone conversation.

Surprisingly, there was a quality in her voice and manner that immediately instilled a sense of trust. Even in that first conversation, she consistently placed my needs and interests above her own. This rare characteristic, in conjunction with her Scottish accent, won my interest to set up an appointment with her.Upon first meeting her, I quickly intuited that Helen had the amazing capacity to balance and sustain a very personal and highly professional orientation. Her friendliness goes without saying as does her willingness to stand strong during difficult periods when disappointments were ever abound. I do believe that the quality of the buying experience itself begins the history of what makes a house a home.Needless to say, she is quite a character, a most enjoyable one at that! To her I owe a great deal of thanks for making the most difficult task of purchasing a home a memorable, meaningful and pleasant one. What a team player she is in all capacities. It is my great pleasure to put this piece together so others too may share the "Helen experience." 

Dr. Gordon Caras

Entering such a quick and busy market was pretty overwhelming but working with Helen made the whole process a lot easier.

She was incredibly patient with our decision making process and understanding of any concerns we had. Although she had other clients, it always felt like we were her only ones; she would even show us places last minute so we always knew we weren't missing out. After standing by us for over a year, we were finally able to find a great house that had a lot of 'potential' and easily became the perfect home to raise our family in.  Thank you, Helen!

Alex & Christine Rucker

My husband and I have known Helen Dalziel for some time now, since we purchased our first home.

Helen truly is a real estate agent who defines the word, 'excellence'. More than that she has become a friend to rely on in times of need, and has exemplified the word commitment to her profession and her responsibilities.We had been stationed in Guam during the recent sale of our home, and as you can imagine any other person may have been stressed about having to leave the sale entirely in someone else's hands. Not us! Because we know and trust Helen's judgment and her meticulous nature, we enjoyed our lives there while Helen worked her magic. She manages to not only master the practice of real estate but adds the personal touch of human kindness that can be lacking in so many others. Her keen attention to detail was a huge help to us in out transactions and her tenacity ensured the job was done in a timely manner.My family is grateful to come across a jewel such as Helen. She truly is an outstanding agent and if we end up in California again, she will be our first and only choice to do business with.

Helen was a pleasure to work with.

 She exceeds her professionalism when it came to representing us in the sale of our home. She is quick to complete necessary tasks and goes beyond the call of duty. (Our pups consider her family now!)Helen has set a very high bar that no Realtor has met yet in our new location out of state.We are blessed to have known her and would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Dave and Karon Lowenstein

We would strongly recommend Helen Dalziel to anyone who is serious about buying or selling real estate.

She is a constant professional. She keeps you well informed during the entire process of selling or buying a home. Unlike other Realtors, Helen does not simply list your home for sale on the MLS and then wait for someone to call. She develops a complete marketing plan using multiple avenues to present your home to potential buyers.As real estate investors, we have used a lot of real estate agents in San Diego and in other states. We have not found anyone who is better than Helen Dalziel. As we continue to buy and sell real estate in our local market, we will always use Helen as our agent.

In the chaos of moving, Helen provides an organized, supportive relief.

 We used her to buy and sell our Carlsbad home and couldn't have been more delighted with both transactions.   We struggle to find enough kind things to say about Helen and hope that someday we move back if for no other reason than to get to work with her again.

Dr . Tricia Eck and Dr. Mike Leingang

When we retained the services of Helen Dalziel, we knew she was pleasant and personable.

We were delighted to discover that she was the consummate professional in all her interactions with us, showing remarkable diligence in finding us suitable properties to view.She was always candid with us and her integrity was without question. We always felt that she was more interested in finding us a home we would be comfortable and happy in than in making a 'quick sale'. Helen was astoundingly diligent, prompt, and well organized in every aspect of our offer presentation, negotiations and consummation of the transaction as a whole.Her assistance and counsel did a great deal to ease our anxieties as new buyers. She was a well prepared advocate for us, taking firm positions with the other agent, but always diplomatic in addressing our concerns, even when other agents were not.We feel that Helen's representation and efforts on our behalf went well beyond what one would expect from a professional agent. We will recommend her highly to any potential buyer or seller who appreciates real estate savvy, diligence, and integrity. Helen knows her stuff!

Helen Dalziel was an absolute pleasure to work with when we were both buying and selling our houses.

Helen clearly understands how to create the right customer experience with her clients -- she understands what part of the process the client should lead, and which part the Realtor should lead. When it came to the search for our new house, Helen showed infinite patience in helping us find the needle in the haystack - our perfect house.  She allowed us to 'lead' the process in identifying the attributes of our 'perfect' -- she never pushed to close a deal. In fact, she was often the one encouraging us to take our time and that we would know when the right one came along. Conversely, when it came to the transaction process - she took the lead and managed every detail.During our search for our new home, what we came to really appreciate was how Helen was able to take our comments and consistently distill that feedback into a more refined search, and actually helped us figure out what we were really looking for. Helen was always well prepared and organized for each meeting -- she was always one step ahead, every detail ticked and tied.  Through every step of the process she was exceptionally communicative. And above all - we could always rely on Helen to guide us in her expertise with the utmost integrity.This was by far our best real estate transaction experience -- thank you Helen Dalziel!Very satisfied customers,

I have never met Helen Dalziel in person, but had the best Realtor experience ever!

Helen sold my home in Carlsbad while I lived in San Francisco.  I couldn't have put my home in better hands.From beginning to end, Helen was thoroughly professional, trustworthy, and had a keen sense for the market.  She got my house ready for sale. Procured painters, staged it and even planted flowers! Most importantly, she was realistic with me on the pricing of my home. Then carefully watched the market and adjusted the price upwards when the conditions were right.In the end, I received two same-day cash offers, went into a bidding war, and got over asking price.  I couldn't have asked for more.Thankfully, Helen was referred to me by a trustworthy friend who sold two houses with her. Being so far away, I feel so fortunate to have had Helen on my side.
