All of us at Coronado Island Realty are constantly striving to excel by combining our passion with business.

We appreciate our clients trusting us with their biggest asset. Here are some reviews from our clients:

Dave and Kate Gillingham at Coronado Island Realty are the team you want on your side if you are buying or selling real estate.  Since 2009, my wife and I have sold a condo, bought a house, and recently purchased a vacation property with their help.  Kate is organized, attentive, tech-savvy, thorough, and really coached us through every step of the way.  Dave is a master at negotiations, will 'tell it how it is', is pragmatic, and truly knows real-estate transactions in depth.  He and Kate recently helped us negotiate a very difficult purchase offer on a property that had four different partial owners living in different states with one of the partial owners not even having a means to contact the others.  The purchase successfully closed and we are greatly enjoying the rare property we purchased.  Each time we have worked with the Gillinghams, the level of responsiveness, professionalism, and attention they provided made us feel like we were their only clients (which I know we are not).  Most important of all, they are good, family-oriented people who we have gotten to know well over the years and trust tremendously.  We would absolutely recommend them for any real estate needs.

I successfully bought my first home!!! So, I'm a first time home buyer with little to no knowledge of the processes and what to look for.  Luckily, I had Kate Gillingham with Coronado Island Realty in my corner.  She was extremely attentive to my everchanging vision of what I was looking for in a home.  Even after we found my home and made an initial offer, Kate was still working in my best interests and successfully negotiated a price reduction during escrow!  She was very organized and professional and walked me through each step of the process.  After the purchase was made Kate continued to follow up with me in case there was anything else I needed or questions I had.  I would HIGHLY recommend Kate Gillingham and the Coronado Island Realty team to everyone, friends and family included.

Thank you Kate!! I love my home!!!

Kate Gillingham is a top flight realtor. We’ve dealt with many realtors over many years, but Kate’s unparalleled attention to detail, service and professionalism is a standout. It was a pleasure to work with her.

This is an AWESOME company to help you find the perfect house for your needs and within your budget! Kate was so helpful and “dumbed” the whole process down for us, took care of all the details, and made the purchase so easy for us (we were first time buyers so the whole thing was a bit overwhelming!). We still love our house and neighborhood and would highly recommend buying your next house through Coronado Island Realty! You won’t be disappointed! DO IT!

I just bought my first house and had a lot of help from Coronado Island Realty. Buying a home seems like it should be an easy transaction but it is hundreds of pages of paperwork with lots of different agencies. Kate’s experience was evident by the knowledge she had of the whole process and the ease with which the sellers agent’s hiccups were dealt with. I will be giving them a call for my next purchase.

My husband and I had a terrific experience with Coronado Island Realtywhen looking for our house. They bent over backwards to accommodate all our requests, and we’re so thankful to have used them because now we’re living in our dream house! Kaitlyn helped us out and was so knowledgeable about the entire process. She did a fantastic job of making sure that both my husband and I were well educated and comfortable along every step of the way. I highly recommend Coronado Island Realty!

Kate, A huge thank you for such a smooth, successful escrow of 44th Street. It’s always a bonus to work with such a professional Realtor! I look forward to our next escrow together! My best to you!
