It is no coincidence that Vicki Podwell is a six-time recipient of the 5 Star Professional Award, as voted by her peers, clients, and San Diego Magazine. Her consistency in receiving this recognition is noteworthy, considering the accolade is received by less than 4% of licensed real estate agents in the county. Vicki has become a coveted real estate agent for some of the most highly respected brokerages in San Diego County because of a unique and specific fusion of her professional values: anunequivocal love for and familiarity of Southern California housing, a foundation built on open communication, and a selling style that is consistently efficient.
Vicki is a Southern California native. Not only has she worked locally in the real estate industry for many years, but she has also raised a family of three children here. This has given her an insider understanding of the San Diego school systems, youth sports organizations, public centers, and neighborhood intricacies that can’t be found online. Vicki truly understands the diversity of the population that makes San Diego County a cultural melting pot. Her experience enables her to relate to her clients and to confidently recommend homes and specificities that will best fit their needs.
Communication paves a foundation for all relationships, personal and professional. Before Vicki became involved in real estate, she co-owned and operated a restaurant. This introduced her to understanding the importance of great customer relations, teaching her that the only way to help a consumer is to fully understand their desires. Her client-pleasing demeanor transferred directly into the real estate realm. Vicki’s sensitivity to client preferences enables her to see the needs of her buyers and to offer homes in which their goals and plans can come to fruition. Vicki makes herself plentifully available via email, text, and phone, allowing communication to flow at the clients’ convenience. Her interpersonal skills are reflected in her impressive client reviews, many of them referencing that Vicki has truly become a life-long friend.
Vicki runs her business in a consistent manner that results in overall satisfaction of her clients. She has a team of highly skilled professionals working at every step of a home sale or purchase. From her professional photographers, and stagers, to her precise contractors, Vicki’s group creates perfection. Not only is Vicki recognized countywide, she also holds national certifications including Military Relocation Professional (through which Vicki works with current and former military service members to find personalized housing solutions), and a certification from Graduate Realtor Institute (awarded upon successful completion of rigorous educational programs). It is not surprising that Vicki’s business continues to grow predominantly through client referrals.
