Hedda was the BEST. She was there for us every step of the way and answered all of our questions very throughly. She sold our house in just a few days and got us the amount we wanted. We were very pleased and couldn’t have asked for a better experience through this stressful time. We would recommend Hedda to everyone we know. Thank you for everything Hedda!!

Although 5 stars across the board may appear as a generic rating, I gladly and sincerely give Hedda those marks. I have worked with Hedda as both a buyer and a seller, and she is my first choice as a real estate agent for both. Hedda has also been an agent for my mother as well. Top notch in the rating criteria above, the intangibles that Hedda brings to the table are the confidence that she earns from her clients, to know that she is looking out for their best interests, all guided by her knowledge and experience. Not to mention she is extremely patient and understanding. On top of all that, she’s a great person to get along with, making what could be stressful transactions very pleasant. Talk to her, and give her an opportunity. You will see what I mean. My name is Allen Lee, and I approve this message :-p

I recently had the opportunity to work with an amazing real estate agent and individual, Hedda Parashos. She guided me through every step of the process and helped me buy my first home. She was patient, flexible, and extremely responsive. I never felt pressured to make a decision and she always gave me honest up-front answers. She is so easy to work with and immediately makes home-buying a comfortable and great experience. I would STRONGLY recommend her to everyone looking to buy or sell a home. She will do everything she can to make the process smooth and even recommend great mortgage brokers. For a first time home owner, I knew very little about what to ask and what to look for when going through the purchase process but Hedda and her team guided me through it and made sure I was completely taken care of. I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor!

We had an Amazing experience. We had this home listed with another agent for a lower listing price for six months with very little activity. In just a short period of time, Hedda and her team had several offers at our higher list price. Hedda and her team are go-getters who are responsive and professional. Without a doubt – they are experts in their field.

Hedda Parashos was very helpful during every step of the process, which can be complicated in our neighborhood of San Diego. We wouldn’t have been able to get our new home without her.

Hedda was exceptional to work with. She was always available to take my call. She took us to view home after home. She wrote countless offers on our behalf and truly made the difference we needed to get our offer accepted in a very competitive market. It was a pleasure to work with her and the entire Palisade Reality team. Thank you so much, we love our home!

Response from Hedda Parashos, Palisade Realty Inc. on 11/16/2015

Wow! Thank you for the review Danielle! It feels like forever ago and now you are a wife and a mother. I’m glad you are doing so well and that you are still in love with your place.

Hedda is a magnificent real estate agent! She really worked hard for me, always with patience and with a smile. Hedda understood what I was looking for. She knows her business like nobody else. She found my dream house and put the deal together perfectly. I would never use a different real estate agent than Hedda.

Although I didn’t buy a home from Hedda my challenge to her was vast! We had to locate and contact a local homeowner to rent their house for a publicity stunt for an upcoming movie (Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension). Not only did Hedda succeed in connecting us with the homeowners she also played a pivotal role in the entire production. She wrote our real estate agent actresses script, along with recruiting some of our visitors to the home! I sure know who I am a buying a house from if I ever move to Southern California : )

Hedda is awesome realtor. Overlooked my condo as it was being built when I was out to sea. Handled all paper work and very knowledgeable about the VA loan. She understands the market and the ins and out in purchasing new developments. At closing she got me a nice bottle of Moet and a cool picture of me with the closing sign. She went as far as getting me an interview on the local news about the perks of buying homes using the VA loan. I will be contacting her when I am ready to sell my home next year. Andrew

If you want a real pro to help you with selling your home then Hedda is the way to go. She and her assistant, Marisa, made the process seamless and worry free. After putting our house on the market we had an offer within hours and closed three weeks later. We got top dollar for our house and all the credit for that goes to Hedda. She saw the value in our home and knew how to market it. Also, she and Marisa answered all our texts and calls within minutes. They will keep you informed and work hard for you. I cannot thank them enough for the excellent work they did for us.

☆☆☆☆☆

What a breath of fresh air. Hedda Parashos gave us a service like never before. Her best quality is the ability to listen and integrate quickly our needs. Hedda understands the market very well, and is able to support a purchase every step of the way. We were extremely happy with how the process went, the outstanding communication and the responsiveness. Anyone looking for a home should speak with Hedda first.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda has not only helped me buy my home in the summer of 2012, but now, she’s helped me sell it, too. There isn’t enough good, wonderful, or thoughtful things I can say about how much of a pleasure working with Hedda is–but let me just put it in these simple terms, I call her my Fairy Godmother. For real. She is honest, diligent, smart, capable, caring and dedicated to each of her clients, wether she is helping you to buy the home of your dreams, or sell it and move on to greener pastures. I’ve been very lucky to have such a wonderful person as my agent–and I urge you to to do the same. Hedda won’t let you down, ever.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda was a joy to work with. She has your best interests at heart, and she works tirelessly for you. Hedda gets results by being courteous and cooperative. She is so great. We all really enjoyed working with her, and it was because of her that we got the house we wanted.

☆☆☆☆☆

She was very helpful during every step of the process, which can be complicated in our neighborhood of San Diego. We wouldn’t have been able to get our new home without her.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda Nailed it. She and Mike were both very helpful and got me through my first home purchase! Pretty stoked. She was particularly responsive and helped me navigate the murkey waters of trying to buy a first home as a small business owner.

Long story short, If I had to do it all again (or when?) I wouldn’t bat an eyelash at getting her on board for the process. Five star high five Hedda – keep it up!

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is simply the best. As a mortgage lender, I have closed multiple purchase transactions with Hedda. She is assertive, knowledgeable, diligent and a negotiating ninja. She is always available to answer questions and unlike most real estate agents, she is not “too busy” to take your phone call or call you back. No deal is too big or too small. She is extremely professional yet friendly. I would highly recommend Hedda to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is engaging, energetic, helpful, patient, creative, knowledgeable, and full of resources! She worked hard to help us find the right home even if it means having to refer us to a different agent. She answers our questions quickly and in detail so we can make a sound decision. She is also very creative in finding a solution to a problem. Hedda provides facts and her professional opinion but at the same time, allowing us to come to our own final decision. She seems very passionate about her job. Anyone would be lucky to have her as an agent.

☆☆☆☆☆

We are writing to express our pleasure with real estate agent Hedda Parashos! Hedda represented us in our recent purchase of a single-family home.

Hedda guided us through the entire process from loan prequalification, to searching for houses, to making the offer and closing the deal. We credit Hedda with a smooth, stress-free home-buying experience! Hedda is savvy, personable and knows the market inside and out. We never could have gotten our dream home without her! Truly pleased with her expertise, Mrs. Parashos we highly recommend thee!

☆☆☆☆☆

Words cannot explain how AMAZING Hedda is. From the moment we decided to start looking at homes, she was quick to call and answer questions and setup homes that met our criteria. She was always on time and proactive in finding us homes she though fit our needs/wants. From day one she was so welcoming and made us feel comfortable to ask her any and every question we had. She has amazing partners which allowed us to get multiple quotes and make the best decision with absolutely no pressure. As soon as we made the decision to put an offer in on a home, Hedda was quick at work to make sure we got the best for our buck. Although we had to make a few negotiations, Hedda was never pushy and always did and recommended what was in our best interest. As our agent she stayed in close contact every step of the way, allowing us to text, call and email as we needed. Her expertise, knowledge and personality make her more than just another realtor. Overall, we would highly recommend Hedda! She even went above and beyond to show our baby boys love (and being a mommy this means a lot). Again, from her first call to handing over the keys she has been nothing short of AMAZING and has made our home buying experience exceptional!

☆☆☆☆☆

When I saw Hedda’s name and contact info on a listing, I called her regarding a particular property for rent. She expressed to me that although, the unit I was inquiring about was not one of her accounts, she gave me the name of Erick Salgado to call and assist me further. I understood that she was in a meeting with one of her clients. She did not just end the conversation, but said that Erick in her office should be able to further assist me. Even though I was not interested in purchasing, but renting a specific property, verifying if the real estate agent’s credibility, and if the owners names were accurate, Erick was able to ease my mind with the extensive search he made, based on the info I gave him. Realizing that there is so many SCAM artists out there with false advertisements, I didn’t want to be another person and/or senior citizen as one of their victims losing my money on a rental property that may not have been legitimate. I did not want to be another one of their victims making a deposit to a SCAMMER. Thank you Hedda and thanks to Erick I was able to complete my money transaction with ease of mind.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is a diligent and knowledgeable real estate professional we would highly recommend. I am a commercial real estate broker licensed in other states and found working with Hedda a pleasure while looking for our personal residence in San Diego. Being in the business, my husband and I have high expectations but they were exceeded by Hedda in her customer service, working knowledge of the contracts and California real estate. She is hard working, intelligent, thorough and ethical. When you meet her you will agree.

Since day one that I work with Hedda, I was really please about her personality,professionalism and dedication to her job. Hedda will guide you all the way through finish line and will tell you if there was an issue about the process. So I strongly recommend Hedda Parashos on anyone that is looking forward to buy a house or property.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda helped me buy my first investment property, and I couldn’t have been happier with her service. I do not live in the San Diego area, so I needed to find an agent that I trusted to give me pertinent information in a timely manner. Hedda worked tirelessly to make sure I was comfortable with the property we eventually chose, and handled the transaction perfectly. She is extremely professional, has high integrity, a great work ethic and genuinely wants you to get what is best for your particular situation. I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is a true professional with a passion for finding the right house for the right person/family. She was knowledgeable, fun, friendly and always made herself available to show us properties we were interested in. She also sold a home for us and did a great job with the negotiating and working with the buyers. I highly recommend Hedda and would use her again to buy or sell my home.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is the rare, excellent broker you’ll be glad you chose. I used her as my buyer’s agent to find a house in the San Diego area. She worked with me relentlessly over a several-month period. We must have looked at 200 homes on paper or internet and walked through 20 or so. Her integrity is above question. She worked diligently to wade through the closing details. There was never any problem at any stage of the process. I found my dream house with beautiful gardens, patio and a wonderful pool, set among pine and palm trees in a San Diego suburb. Thanks, Hedda.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda assisted my husband and I in selling our home in Bonita, CA . She was extremely knowledgeable, professional and hard working. She not only represented us with the upmost of ethics, she marketed our home great, held open houses and negotiated the final details of the transaction, which at times were very difficult, with professionalism and ease. Hands down I would recommend her and her company to anyone who is looking to buy or sell in the San Diego area. You will not be disappointed.

☆☆☆☆☆

A friend of ours recommended Hedda to us after they sold there Condo and bought a beautiful home in San Diego. From the first minute we spoke on the phone we knew she was going to be a big help. She was friendly and kind and told us the truth from day one. She helped us to sell our Condo and buy a bigger home as well. I recommend her to all my friends and she recentley helped a co worker of mine get into a home of his dreams. I’ve had other relators and none of them compare to how she handled business. True professsional who gets the job done.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is professinal, going for results in a friendly manner.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is absolutely amazing. She has represented me on 3 separate transactions and each time I was more impressed than the time before.

I think she has a far better than average ability to get offers accepted. Her negotiation skill is top notch, diplomatic, and has always been able to get the terms to where I need them.

No matter what happens, she puts my interests first. I would never worry about getting anything but her very best A game. She answers her phone every time I call and is able to thoroughly address my questions and concerns. She never seems too busy for me.

This is a real review from an actual past client. If you want to ask me direct questions about Hedda or hear additional glowing comments, please feel free to call me. (I’m easy to find online). – Zachary Love, San Diego

Without a doubt – they are experts in their field.

☆☆☆☆☆

I had a great experience with Hedda selling my home. She made the process smooth and I would recommended to friends.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda and her assistant Marisa were amazing in helping us buy our home. From start to finish they were patient as we weeded through numerous properties to find “the one”… and believe me, we looked at a LOT of homes. Hedda always reassured me that we would find the perfect home and that everything would work out. She worked tirelessly to help make it happen, and was always very responsive, even when she was obviously swamped with clients and flooded with 2-3 emails from me daily with listings I wanted to check out. Hedda was also constantly up-front and honest with me and my husband, and was a strong ally in negotiations and ensuring she got us the best bang for our buck. I’d work with Hedda again in a heartbeat and wholeheartedly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. When it comes time to sell mine (hopefully not for several years!), I’ll be giving Hedda a call.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda and her staff were tremendous. We sold our home and bought a new one and Hedda helped us through the entire process, which definitely isn’t an easy one. I was always able to get a hold of someone immediately to help answer any questions and their thorough knowledge of the business insured that everything went smoothly. Without question, if you want to make sure that you have an agent that will look out for your best interest and be there every step of the way, then Hedda is the perfect agent to work with. I would recommend her to anyone without reservation.

☆☆☆☆☆

I consider myself fairly knowledgeable on the subject as my extended family buys and sells real estate often. I soon realized Hedda knew all the aspects of the business very well. I was away on work for months at a time, my wife was 6-8 months pregnant, and needed a place for my family soon. Hedda was so good at what she did, that she was the only one I would allow to sell the place a couple years later. My wife and I needed more room for another child on the way. She reads her clients and sold us a house that we needed for the circumstance. I really miss that place but our new place is great and has more room. Cant thank you enough Hedda! and wouldn’t want to do business with any one else, ever.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda was awesome! This whole experience was new for me, with a lot of different ins and outs that i didnt have a clue about, but she helped me navigate it all with such professionalism and expertise that it almost seemed too easy at times. Hands down a great realtor, and someone i would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda helped us find a real gem and negotiated a substantial reduction based on inspection findings. She was so good to work with, we then hired her to sell our existing home. We got a price that was unprecedented in the area. Hedda is one of those rare finds, completely available, excellently versed, and involved in making your goals happen. Many brokers just want the deal. Hedda actually does represent you, and will hang in with you until the right thing happens. I consider her a friend. She earned it.

☆☆☆☆☆

The most honest, caring, and down to earth real estate agent San Diego/Chula Vista has to offer!!

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda helped me purchase my first condo on my own about 4.5 years ago and it was such a great experience! Hedda is so knowledgeable about areas all over the county and has impeccable intuition. After trying to find the right place for so long, I felt like I was being too picky but Hedda understood exactly what I was looking for and never gave up on the search until we found the perfect place for me. She NEVER made me feel like a burden after I would call her countless times with questions and we actually had fun together running around looking at different properties. Hedda has great negotiation skills and made sure that I was comfortable with the entire purchase and not feel like I was in over my head. Once we were able to find the place for me the entire purchasing process went so smoothly because Hedda took care of everything for me. I would HIGHLY recommend Hedda as an agent to anyone looking to buy or sell any property!

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda is the best Real Estate agent I have had the privilege of knowing. From the moment I started working with her she cared about her clients. She is very honest , and trustworthy. I would recommend Hedda to my closest friend’s and family. Her responsiveness and willingness to learn has proven she is the best choice for all types of Real Estate Transactions. Choose Hedda, she will not let you down!

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda was outstanding. The market was so competitive we didn’t think we would be able to find anything. Hedda previewed properties, responded quickly, worked with our lender, and got us our dream vacation home.

☆☆☆☆☆

Hedda Parashos has to be the absolute best agent in San Diego! My husband and I are so fortunate we got to work with her when buying our home. I don’t know how she did it, but she got all of our offers accepted, which made the process so much easier! This market is very competitive, but Hedda’s professionalism made her a joy to work with! She never gave up, even when our first escrow fell through, and she was always quick to respond to our inquiries, day or night! The customer services Hedda provides her clients is bar none. I would and have recommended Hedda to other buyers in and around San Diego. Thanks for everything Hedda! – Kristen and Nick

This was our second realtor, while we searched for our first home. I am in the Navy so finding the right home was a bit challenging on my pay. So the first realtor got the boot because of a complete lack of care. Hedda really came through for us finding us a marvellous and spacious home near my work in the price range we were looking at. The other realtors don’t actually listen to there clients the just push the numbers and we very much appreciated the hard work and kindness put forth by Hedda and her assistant Patty.

We are first time home buyers and we were totally in the dark with respect to the buying process and the market conditions. After spending time with another agent, we decided that it was time to seek someone else. We found Hedda!!!

We did not know that such a hard working and knowledgable agent could exist. Hedda Parashos made us feel so taken care of and she went above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Communicative, prompt, and very knowledgable, Hedda had our interests at the top of her list. Bottom line, she found my fiance and I our first dream home. We could not ask for anything more!

If you need an agent, see Hedda Parashos!

I just closed on my first home with Hedda and her company, Palisade Realty. Everything about my experience with Hedda was and is extremely positive! When Hedda responded to my very first question about a listing literally 10 minutes after I sent the email, I was already extremely impressed. Then, to go out of her way to call me the very next day and explain the entire process and answer further questions was also excellent. I deeply appreciated all the time, hard work, and diligence which she, and her associates provided throughout the buying process. Although this is my first purchase, after seeing all of the paperwork and parties involved, it amazed me that they were able to show me a few places and work the deal until close, literally a month later. I also want to note her professional but easygoing attitude during our meetings and phone conversations. Those two things combined made me feel extremely comfortable working with her and it was extremely easy to trust her & her team’s recommendations. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Hedda. She will be responsive, professional, and aggressive with handling your purchase or sale! Thanks Hedda!

She is great!!! VERY HELPFUL! and so informed. I am a first timer and I had no clue, she listen to me and give me a starting point.

Hedda is a hard working and passionate realtor. She is great at understanding the finer details of VA loan and you can tell she really loves her job. Highly recommend!

I set a goal to buy a house before the year was over. I knew the right agent would make the difference. From the first time I communicated with Hedda, I knew, she was the agent for my family. Hedda is honest, hardworking, dedicated, and extremely customer focused. Hedda listens and I know from my experience, she finds people the homes that they want, not just the homes she can sell. We gave Hedda the impossible task of finding us a home, in our price range, with clear expectations of size and style, in a 10 mile square radius, with a school in mind….and, while that is quite hopeful and nearly unrealistic, I am writing from that dream home now! Hedda made it happen! I highly recommend her.

Hedda works hard to meet and exceed your needs and help manage all of your challenges that come your way when selling a home. She doesn’t stop until the deal is done!

Hedda Parashos is a diligent and knowledgeable real estate professional we would highly recommend. I am a commercial real estate broker licensed in other states and found working with Hedda a pleasure while looking for our personal residence. Being in the business, my husband and I have high expectations but they were exceeded by Hedda in her customer service, working knowledge of the contracts and California real estate. She is hardworking, intelligent, thorough and ethical. When you meet her, you will agree.

I consider myself extremely lucky to have found Hedda on Trulia. About 2 months ago I started the search for my first home with a little online research, tight budget, and a short timeline. Despite my budget I had kind of a long wish list. Thankfully, Hedda knew how to help. Each time she showed me a new listing, she thoughtfully listened to my feedback and took that and my budget into consideration. About a month into the search, Hedda found me the perfect downtown condo and less than a month after that the condo was mine! My first home buying experience was extremely smooth and memorable because of Hedda. She is a true professional who is knowledgeable, caring, and trustworthy.

Tom and Hedda Parashos have represented me in several real estate transactions. I was very pleased with their performance and personal attention. I have referred them to my family and friends with confidence.

Robert Aguilar, President West Coast Drywall


Tom Parashos represented me in the purchase of an industrial property to serve as our new office headquarters. He found exactly what I was looking and the transaction went very smooth.

LaithHaisha, President Jido&Junair, Inc.


Tom Parashos represented me in a transaction involving the purchase of a commercial property that now serves as our corporate headquarters. The deal involved environmental phase I and II testing and some complex financing issues arose during escrow. Tom’s work ethic and dedication were instrumental in closing the deal. He kept me fully informed throughout the transaction which allowed me to make intelligent financial decisions along the way. Tom was very available for consultation and promptly returned all calls. I would recommend Tom to anyone that is looking for high quality professional customer service.

David A. Pulvers, President, All County Fire, Inc.

Jerome A. Legerton


I had been trying to sell my home for over a year and had gone through two different agents that could not locate any qualified buyers during this time. I then hired Tom Parashos of Palisade Realty to sell my house. He was able to find a qualified buyer in a few months and closed the deal. Tom was professional in dealing with me and everyone involved in the transaction. His customer service was great and I look forward to hiring him again to represent me in my next deal.

Just wanted to thank you for helping us purchase our condo. Hard to believe I bought it over the internet without seeing it! I have bought 4 other homes and this was the smoothest transaction! I will definitely call Cheryl Hampton for any of our future needs! Thanks so much again.

Mark and Leslie Adami


My husband and I purchased our first home with Cheryl Hampton and cannot say enough good things. The experience was made difficult by circumstances out of our and Cheryl’s control and without her help, we probably would have given up. The level of professionalism, dedication, and follow through Cheryl exhibited was immeasurable. We had been struggling for over a year trying to purchase a home through another agent with no success. As time passed us by, we were very afraid that we would miss the opportunity that the decline in house prices was giving us. Stress began to mount as we watched house after house slip through our fingers. Then, we met Cheryl Hampton. Within the first month of her being our agent we had hope again as well as an accepted offer on a home we really liked. Throughout the entire process Cheryl treated us like family and made our scary first time experience feel safe and secure. I would highly recommend Cheryl to anyone even considering a real estate purchase. Thanks so much Cheryl!!!!!! Our dreams have finally come true thanks to you.

Stephanie and Lee Staggs


For anyone in San Diego looking for an experienced, dedicated, hard working, and easy-to-work-with real estate agent, please consider Cheryl Hampton. She is wonderful to work with!

Lori O’Connor


Thanks so much for helping us find our new home. I know that it took alot. You went out of your way with everything. Thanks again…..You ARE the Best!!!
