“I have worked with Karen for years and have found her to be incredibly capable, resourceful, conscientious, trustworthy, professional, and caring. She has been a lifesaver and I can’t recommend her highly enough!” Heidi K.
Partner, Agricultural Company in the Dairy Industry

“On a recent 2-week vacation Karen looked after my house and yard. There was a break in down the street while I was gone. It gave me peace of mind to know someone was monitoring my home while I was away. Karen sent me updates and was extra vigilant after hearing about my neighbor’s break in. Thanks for the great support, Karen.”Christine S.
Creative Director for Fortune 500, San Diego, CA

“As Group Sales Manager of a popular convention destination venue in San Francisco, hosting over 400 groups each year, I treasure Karen’s efficiency, attitude, and attention to detail in group planning. She has a solid understanding of her clients’ needs as well as her suppliers, and I really wish I could clone her!”Mary Beth Kavanaugh,
Steve Silver's Beach Blanket Babylon, San Francisco, CA

“On my last trip to San Diego, I relied on Karen to choose special upscale restaurants for us to dine at, as well as a location that easily accommodated kids. Karen’s choices were beyond perfect – ranging from La Jolla, to downtown San Diego and Encinitas. They fit our group’s atmosphere requirements, were a hit with our clients, and she didn’t even have to ask what specifically I was looking for. I am glad I have Karen to look out for my VIP clients.”Susan B.
Business Consultant, Los Angeles, CA

“When we wanted an upscale ski in/ski out vacation, inclusive of private instruction, Karen knew the exact resources to send us to. Next summer, we are planning a similar golf vacation, including private golf lessons and a different green every day. We look forward to working with Karen again.”Liz H.
