Sherri & Kevin Murray
We’ve known Tim and Kristine for about 4 years. We became friends through our membership at the Santaluz Club where Tim and I frequently golfed together.
When the new community of Auberge began construction, we knew we wanted to sell our home in Santaluz and purchase a home in Auberge, and there was no one else we would’ve used than Tim and Kristine Skoglin.
Our sale and subsequent purchase couldn’t have been more smooth. Tim found a buyer for our Santaluz home without even listing it on the MLS. The process was smooth, professional and every on of our questions was answered promptly and with great care and concern that we understood the transaction completely.
Tim and Kristine’s guidance were crucial in our ability to secure our ideal home in the very competitive buying environment at Auberge. I don’t think we would have been able to secure our home without their knowledge and working relationships.
We are incredibly grateful and lucky to have them as our Realtors and as our friends.

When it was time to move we knew we wanted to come to Del Sur because of the schools. We knew Tim had sold a number of homes in the area we were living in and he also knew about the area we wanted to move into.
Tim and Kristine were so great with both the selling of previous home, as well as our new home purchase. They helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. They were professional from start to finish and we were pleased with their knowledge and follow through.
We didn’t quite understand how many people had worked with Tim and Kristine until we attended their 20th Anniversary Client Appreciation Party where we saw and met many of our neighbors living in Del Sur that they had helped as well. They continue to keep in touch with us and we are truly grateful for their work and friendship. We would certainly recommend Skoglin Real Estate to others.

As first-time homeowners, the Skoglins’ helped us navigate an intensely competitive market to land our dream home in Del Sur. We greatly appreciated their measured demeanor and ability to keep us informed at every step of the process.
We always felt like we were a priority with Skoglin Real Estate. They were flexible with timing, often taking us to showings in the evenings and fielding our many calls and emails late at night to accommodate our busy work schedules. Tim always provided measured advice based off of his 22-plus years of experience to ensure we always made measured offers on homes that would only increase in value on years to come – a tricky thing to do given the low inventory and many other motivated buyers in the area.
While the escrow process threw a few bumps in our path (through no fault of the Skoglins’), Tim and Kristine’s attention to detail and professionalism helped us close the deal on time. We’d highly encourage any buyer or seller to work with Skoglin Real Estate. Their experience, thoughtfulness, and work ethic is truly unparalleled.
Dian & Geno Powell
What a pleasure working with Kristine! She was always so professional and so very, very helpful…no question was too small.
Her knowledge regarding the contingencies on the property gave us peace of mind.
Kristine was right there for us every step of the way…one couldn’t go wrong with her as their agent.
Joe & Debbie Dennison
We have known Tim and Kristine personally for over 15 years and have been fortunate to work with them for our real estate needs. Their knowledge base of the area, diligence, and attention to detail made our transactions worry free.
Tim and Kristine never left a question unanswered, and always responded promptly. The best part is they are just a pleasure to work with, always being upbeat and friendly. They were always available and ready to assist us!
I have referred Tim and Kristine to several of my friends and clients and always get a big THANK YOU back from them. If you want someone that will be honest with you, and work until the job is done, I highly recommend giving them a call!
Judy & John Mort
Tim and Kristine Skoglin represented us in the sale of our house in 4S Ranch. They did a fabulous job of getting the price we were asking, which was top dollar!
They also represented us and assisted us in purchasing a home in the new community that we’re moving to.
I highly recommend them to sell your home. They are knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and go way beyond what a normal agent would do for you to sell your home.
Rebecca & Andrew Freeman
When we decided to sell our home, we contacted Tim and Kristine because of their reputation for really knowing our neighborhood. We’re extremely happy that we worked with them for our home sale.
They kept in constant communication with us throughout the process and worked with us to make key decisions along the way. At each step, they let us know both what could possibly happen and what was most likely to happen so there were no surprises.
The entire process, from beginning to end, could not have gone smoother. Tim and Kristine have our highest recommendation for anyone thinking of buying or selling in San Diego!
As a businessman, I expect the business aspects of purchasing a home to be handled in a professional and competent manner. Tim, Kristine and staff provided such services for the recent purchase of my home. Tim was recommended by a long time mutual acquaintance.
We started by efficiently sorting through a number of different areas in order to meet my requirements. Appointments and timelines were established and maintained during the entire process. Once we found the right place, I found Tim to be a rational and experienced negotiator who is sincere about making the right deal for his client, and not just any deal. Inspectors and contractors recommended by the Skoglins provided reliable and timely support throughout the transition process.
Equally important, the assistance provided by the Skoglin team to help me settle into my new home didn’t stop after the close of escrow. The performance of Skoglin Real Estate exceeded my expectations, and I would not hesitate use them again.
Marie & Gary Gorgie
Thank you for providing the background on "how" we found ourselves, where we are at today, in this close of escrow process (not quite home owners).
Marie & I could not imagine having stronger leaders in this industry to guide and support us through this entire home buying process, while treating every aspect of our emotions with the utmost sensitivity, care and respect.
You are consummate professionals in every sense, and our mere words alone cannot express our sincere appreciation for having gone through this process with both of you at the helm.Thank you both so much for all that you do!!
Angelica & Jaime Mellina
We have worked with Tim and Kristine every time we needed to sale or buy a home. They have always delivered the best possible service.
Tim is a great listener. You will have no need to tell him much. He has excellent skills to figure out exactly what your needs and desires are.
In our last transaction, he helped us obtain exactly what we were dreaming for, even sacrificing his own interests to keep us happy.
Currently, we are enjoying our new beautiful house in the best neighborhood of San Diego, and willing to work with Tim and Kristine again whenever we decide to make our next move.
We know they will be there for us in each step of the process. We can always count on them for any questions or needs, even after the transaction is completed. Thank you, Tim and Kristine!
Luci & Donald Lander
I have worked with Tim and Kristine at Skoglin real estate on two separate occasions in the last five years. On both occasions they handled both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new residence.
Each time the process was not only smooth and efficient but enjoyable too . Their expertise and experience on the transaction side was invaluable – they foresaw any potential issues and were able to manage the process so that all deadlines were met well within their timelines.
And their knowledge of the Stonecrest neighborhood was a unique advantage and was critical in helping us purchase our homes in this wonderful community.
At the end of day they, they are also good , honest, hardworking people above reproach. It has been a pleasure working with this professional and personable team and I look forward to working with them in the future .
I was dreading the process of finding a home to purchase in San Diego and was unsure of exactly what I was looking for. Tim and Kristine Skoglin (Skoglin Real Estate) were referred to me by my credit union and I found working with them to be a very pleasant experience.
Tim and Kristine were extremely patient with me as I changed my desired neighborhood, price range and home configurations (size, stories, etc.). No matter the change they tirelessly worked to find me a house that I can be totally comfortable in and that they knew was suitable for me.
Once I was in escrow they stayed on top of everything and made sure the process was smooth and timely. They also provided me with some excellent referrals.
All in all I highly recommend Tim and Kristine for all realty needs and plan to use them in the future when the need arises.
Ray Cunningham & Monica Ducksworth
We love our new home. When we began our home search, we had specific requirements which added up to a tall order for the Skoglin team.
We had to be in the Del Norte High School boundary to avoid having our daughter change schools. We desired an open floor plan and a view from the property to give us a sense of space and a pool to keep the dogs busy. To top it off, we needed to be able to afford the place.
Tim and Kristine showed us many places until we found the perfect one in 4S Ranch. We saw it the day it was listed and immediately had our hearts set on this spot but we were sure a ton of other folks who looked at the property the same day felt the same way.
Tim did a skilful job in evaluating the market and came up with a number that won the house the next day. We were thrilled! Unfortunately, the owners later tried to find ways to back out of the deal as we approached the closing. We thought that we had lost the property but Tim was able to marshal the right strategy and resources to ensure that the transaction closed and we were in our new home in a matter of weeks.
I recently completed my third real estate transaction with Skoglin Real Estate and, once again, I have been very pleased with their service. They have represented me on both sides of real estate deals – as both a buyer and a seller. They are experts in the Master Community of Stonecrest in San Diego. They know the properties and their values better than anyone else in the industry and I trust them completely when it comes to how to market a home, what to offer and/or what price to set, and how to respond to offers and counter offers. Tim set a range for my last sale that was higher than I had hoped for and I was able to sell at the top of that range, which was the highest sales price ever for my neighborhood.
They represented me for two home sales. In both cases, their advice on how to “stage” my home (always using my own furniture and fixtures) helped me to showcase each home in its best light resulting in offers at the first Open House for each. They also kept me from spending money I didn’t need to spend to get my houses ready. What stands out to me in the sales process is that through conversations with prospective buyers, Tim looks to identify which buyers would be right for the particular house he is selling. He doesn’t “hard sell” to get an offer; he looks to get the right offer to avoid a buyer who changes their mind halfway through the escrow process. He also works hard to pre-qualify buyers who make an offer to, again, try to ensure a successful escrow.
Tim and Kristine go the extra mile to help their clients in any way they can. For example, I was in escrow and needed to get my house tented for termites ASAP. I was going to be out of town on business so they contacted my pest control company for me and arranged for the tenting to take place while I was gone. This was a huge help to me and was very much appreciated.
They are extremely professional in all their interactions and pretty unflappable when issues arise during the process. They are both wonderful to work with. I received numerous offers on my last sale and, based on my observations of the agents representing the various buyers, they were always more experienced and knowledgeable than the other party.
Tim and Kristine work very hard for their clients and they have certainly earned their commissions in all my transactions. I can’t recommend them highly enough for both buyers and sellers.
When I wanted to sell my home in 2017 it was the first time I had done so on my own. I was concerned that I wouldn’t know how to select a broker much less how to judge if he was the right one. But after meeting with Tim for the first time all of my concerns went away. It was easy to see his conscientiousness and integrity.
Those traits never wavered throughout the sale process. I always knew that both Tim and Kristine had my best interests at heart and were always available to address any question I might have. I always felt that they “had my back ”and kept me informed and on track with any new developments. They didn’t waste any time or effort in getting the sale started and due to that my home sold during the first open house. Tim knew how important it was to me to have a longer escrow and was able to make that happen.
They made me feel that I was their only client and were there all the time. Tim was also the broker for the people buying my home and selling theirs and conducted everything with the utmost professionalism.
I can heartily recommend them without reservation. They are knowledgeable, professional, and honest in an industry where some individuals are not. I will always be grateful that I chose them and equally grateful to them for all they accomplished for me.
Tammy & Rudy Ezquerro
We are forever grateful to Tim & Kristine for helping us sell and buy our homes!
We began working with Tim in 2003. Our experience was nothing short of exceptional. Our home was sold in a matter of days and he negotiated our next purchase to make the move into our future home seamless. Not only that, he corrected a situation that the owner could not.
In 2017 we began looking to sell our home to downsize. Tim & Kristine worked tirelessly to show our home to buyers, while also opening doors for us to see prospective homes. We had a neighborhood in mind, but they widened our geography and kept our emotions in check. Not aneasy task for impatient buyers!
Finally we realized the house of our dreams! In the exact neighborhood we wanted! Tim & Kristine never rested. They invested themselves personally. They understood what we wanted and made it happen. We couldn’t have asked for anything different!
Andrew & Payal Scott
We moved to San Diego from the suburbs of Chicago, and we were surprised by the housing costs in San Diego. Needless to say, we were hesitant to invest in a house here, but after about two years of renting, we decided it was time. Our credit union recommended Skoglin Real Estate to us and we were grateful for the recommendation.
Tim and Kristine were amazing to work with. They understood our concerns about the cost, our desire to minimize commute times and other specific features that we wanted in the house. Tim and Kristine were very accommodating and worked with our schedules over several months to find the house that fit our needs. They also have a large network of trusted inspectors and contractors that they recommend, which reduced our stress after we bought our home.
Thank you so much Tim and Kristine!
Patrick & Niki Moore
When faced with a life change in our family which made it necessary to sell our house there was no question in our minds as to who would be the Best people to do that, the Skoglin Real Estate team.
We were provided with recommendations from friends and professionals and admittedly we did talk to a few but we still came back to our first choice. Having been an original new home buyer in our neighborhood and living there for 18+ years we were aware of home sales experiences. Time again and again the Skoglin team performed above the competition. We walked the home with Tim and Kristine taking note of their recommendations as to what buyers were looking for. They had recommendations as to what would make the process timely and easy to accomplish, knowing what to expect in advance reduced the anxiety of selling what we thought would be our forever home. Based on their recommendations, we received top dollar for the sale of our home. To add to the experience they helped us find a family that was just as excited to live there as well.
We would highly recommend this team of knowledgeable, professional, helpful and friendly people who go above and beyond what typical agents would do for you to sell your home.
