As most San Diegans already know, this city is a diverse assortment of small villages. Even though San Diego is the 8th largest city in the US, with all the advantages of a major urban area, it has managed to retain its small-town spirit. The energetic feeling of community is strong in San Diego’s varied neighborhoods that have developed their own unique characteristics. There are more than 100 separate, identifiable neighborhoods. Time to choose yours.


The Hillcrest area is best known for its tolerance and lifestyle diversity. All are welcome: young, old, straight, LBGT, singles, and couples call Hillcrest home. It is a lively, active neighborhood known for trendy restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars and unique boutiques, Hillcrest is bordered by Mission Hills on the west, Bankers Hill and Balboa Park on the south and Mission Valley on the north. Two of the best hospitals in the county are located here, so many healthcare professionals call Hillcrest home.

Hillcrest residents appreciate the proximity to downtown and Balboa Park. Often described as the hippest commercial district, the large, gay, politically active population has been crucial in revitalizing the area. Hillcrest has many neighborhood activities, including a fabulous farmers market on Sundays with fruits and veggies, of course, but also crafts, cooking, and arts; an annual Gay-Pride parade, City Fest—a celebration with local bands, beer gardens, children’s area, and much more.

Dan Dennison has been my agent throughout the entire process of the search for my first home.

Having witnessed many friends and family members go through this process throughout the years, I knew I needed a trustworthy and patient agent.

My very first search for a home was certainly an enjoyable and smooth process because of Dan. He is knowledgeable (with decades of experience in Real Estate across multiple states in the country), professional (has an MBA in addition to his experience in the field), friendly (has two friendly dogs as well!), and patient (took his time explaining and answering any questions I had).

From day one, Dan was honest, professional, and easy to work with. He takes great care in listening to the client and identifying their wishes in the home search. He carefully explains things in a logical and easy-to-understand manner for a first-time buyer like myself.

In addition, Dan has been an excellent resource and as well as a friend when it came to other important items related to the search, such as identifying and navigating through the lending process, learning about what an HOA covers, locating a trustworthy insurance company, home warranties, and discussions with the listing agents and sellers about questions.

Dan Dennison is an agent who will go above and beyond to provide the highest quality of service to you, holding the clients' interest at heart.
