Ocean Beach

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.  This page discusses Ocean Beach homes for sale and may very well lead you to finding one that works for you.


Ocean Beach is located on the Pacific side of Point Loma, west of downtown. Known as an old-fashioned SoCal beach town, OB was started in 1887 as Mussel Beach. Beach living requires tolerance—tolerance for the tourists in the summer, the inflated housing prices year-round, and the damp air that can settle in for weeks at a time. Those complications of beach life are quickly forgotten as soon as the sun peeks through the clouds.

Many free spirits have called OB home—the village was an enclave for hippies and flower children during the 1960s and 70s. They stayed on, bought houses and raised their children here. Although OB is a haven for surfers, beach lovers and classic VW vans, OB residents can be visionary – three of them actually started Comic Con, or another went on to become a billionaire using new ideas in technology.

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.

I absolutely loved working with Dan while purchasing my first home in Kensington. Overall he is an extremely honest and reliable individual with strong ethics, traits much needed in the business. If you are new to buying a home (as I was) you will not need someone to find the home for you. Zillow, Trulia, Google, etc will serve the search process with ease.

It is really once you are in the position to make an offer than a realtor becomes indispensable. You need someone to guide you through the complex process, negotiate, and make sure the contract is written in a way that protects you. I cannot stress this enough. During our offer the contract was initially written (unbenounced to me) in quite unfavorable terms to me, which he pushed to get changed. Additionally he was forceful during the inspection process and I ended up getting quite a lot of money to pay for repairs that were needed (it's a 1931 home). I also bought the home for cheaper than the listed price.

Overall, it was great working with Dan, I would work again with him, and I would refer him to anyone who asked.
