About Lisa Ashkins

My family and I moved to San Diego from Oregon in 1967, so I consider myself a “near native'. Over the years, I have lived in many wonderful San Diego communities including Clairemont, Kensington, Fashion Hills, Mission Valley, Tierrasanta, Otay Ranch, and Downtown. In recent years I returned to North Park and remodeled an historic home.

After graduating with honors from San Diego State University with a major in Social Work, I embarked on a career in the affordable housing industry and spent 14 years with the San Diego Housing Commission. During my tenure with the Commission, I led in the development and delivery of innovative and award-winning programs that supported increased quality of life, economic self-sufficiency and homeownership for many San Diego families.

My education and experience spans interior design, marketing, a Masters in Organizational Leadership and completing the rigorous process of becoming a licensed Real Estate Broker. I believe my professional experience working in the arena of affordable housing and later as a consultant and business owner, provided me with the right mix of research, marketing, sales, problem solving, time management, communication, negotiation, and customer service skills necessary to ensure successful real estate transactions.

Whether it's finding a new place to call home, selling your existing home with the greatest of ease, expanding your investment property portfolio, or getting the best loan, I am here to expertly guide the process and ensure superior service and attention from beginning to end.
