Modern Architecture



In 1992, I stepped into a real estate office and it was history! It was an interesting time for real estate as our interest rates were about 9% and we had listing books -yes books. Nowadays, we have sites like Zillow, where I have been blessed to be recognized as a 5-Star agent.


My great reviews speak to my desire to help people, through my gifts such as patience, marketing and negotiations. I love helping a first time home-buyer or a struggling seller transition into a better situation. I use every tool that I can in order to fulfill my fiduciary to my clients and you will never question who I am representing.


I joke that I live a simple life now… real estate, my family, including being a proud uncle to two crazy pre-teens and healthy outdoor San Diego living, which includes a bit of cooking. I’ve learned to make a killer hummus and Pad-thai. To the say that the kitchen has become my favorite room in the house is an understatement.


We all have our favorite places in our homes. If you are a buyer, I look forward to helping you purchase as there is no better feeling than to say “I own my home!” If you are a seller, my only job is to get you top-dollar through my unique BOLD marketing featuring Virtual and E-marketing accommodating social distancing. Additionally, my association with Harcourts Pinnacle allows me to offer my buyers and sellers the best in Traditional and Auction Real Estate.

Feel free to reach out any time for a no-obligation consultation. I look forward to being of service when the time is right! -Horacio 

Clients Say It Best.gif


“Horacio has proven himself a man of integrity.  He staged my homes, prepared complex paperwork, marketed the properties and brought in record breaking profits at that time.”


I just want to say Thank you to Horacio for a wonderful experience I had with him selling my condo last year! He is the man of his word ! Even though I have several friends that are Real Estate Agents  but I used his service and I am a very happy client of his! And, next time I am going to use his service  when I am ready to buy for sure!


Thanks for your impressive and magnificent help. We know we're a little different than most people so we're very happy it all worked out so well. You were awesome. Most sincere thanks!


"Horacio is one of the best. He brings honesty and great customer service to real estate. He really cares about his clients. Call Horacio Ron Hernandez in San Diego! (And no, he didn't pay me to post this, he really does rock! 😊)​"



"I just wanted to say how much we appreciate your help!!!!"


"My dad and sister found Horacio to be pleasant and professional at all times. I'm grateful for the patience he exhibited while working with my family. He helped my sister and I sell my dad's house. Even though I live in another state I was kept abreast of what was going on from listing to  closing. Horacio was a pleasure to work with, no doubt he's great at what he does."


"Although there is so much bad happening in our world right now, good things can still happen! Richard and I are now homeowners! This happened so fast. But it was meant to be! We had just gone to see this home earlier this month, and sooner than we knew it, things began working in our favor. And despite the daily changes in our world that also happened so quickly, I kept positive and put my trust and faith in God that this home would be ours! I want to thank my wonderful friend, Horacio, who helped us every step of the way in finding this home and through this process! Thank you my friend! You will be blessed!"

"If this site would allow it I would give Horacio and his team an infinite number of stars! We struggled to sell our condo with our previous agent who was lazy and didn't want to do his job properly. After a few months we got lucky to meet Horacio at one of the open houses in Poway. He told us what  could be the reason why our place was not selling, and we decided to change our agent. We are so happy we did!

Horacio really knows his job, he came prepared to the first consultation with a folder full of useful information, and he gave very useful advice on the home search. Horacio is extremely professional, you can tell he has many years of experience. But what's most important, he advocates for his clients, and is a strong negotiator.

He walked us through an extremely difficult transaction, where the first buyer of our condo backed out last minute, and we were completely devastated. Horacio was able to get a 45 day extension from the owner of our new house, and he worked really hard to sell our condo within the time frame. He found a new buyer for the condo, and saved our deposit on a house! It was very stressful but thanks to Horacio we sold the condo, saved our money, and we are in our new house now!

We highly recommend Horacio to anybody wanting a professional and caring agent!"



“We really enjoyed working with Horacio during our home search.  He was extremely detail-oriented, very well prepared, respected our time, knew tons about bay area real estate, and was great working with other agents, lenders and insurance companies to make things happen for us and get us the best deal possible.  


He was patient and fun to be around during the time we were searching, and we always felt comfortable with him. More importantly, Horacio is all about integrity. He doesn’t push, he’s very open and honest and helped advise us on houses that looked like better long term bets.  He really is in this for the long term, to build strong relationships and find the right home for his customers… versus trying to grab a quick sale and move. I’d highly recommend him to anyone searching for a home. We absolutely love our new home, and wouldn’t have gotten it without Horacio there to make it happen.”​


"Thanks Horacio! Appreciate everything you’ve done. Thank You!" 


"Horacio is knowledgeable, patient and a great negotiator!​​"


"Horacio was wonderful to work with! He is very skillful and professional, and a very positive person, who kept us well informed throughout the process. We couldn’t be happier with our experience with him!"



“I wanted to write this letter much sooner, however as you know, preparing to move into a new house can be very hectic! Thanks to Horacio Hernandez, my incredible real estate agent, I have now realized my dream of owning my first house in the Bay Area! I first began working with Horacio earlier this year when he sold my condo for me. He did an incredible job! Horacio is the epitome of professionalism and integrity. When he sold my condo, i didn't think it was possible to be more impressed -I was wrong!"



"Thank you so very much for your hard work!  Nobody could do what you accomplished!"


“Absolutely fantastic and above expectations service!  We’re looking forward to working with you again. Thanks!”



“You have been 100% committed to us all through our home search and purchase.  We truly appreciate your patience with our particular needs and your outstanding advice throughout the contract negotiations and close of the sale.  Your warmth and professionalism have made this entire experience a positive one on our behalf.”



“Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put on helping us get our first house.  We are all very happy.”



“Horacio… you are definitely got what it takes.  Thanks for the opportunity to sell your listing!”



“My mom and I would like to thank Horacio Ron Hernandez to thank and recommend Horacio Ron Hernandez to anyone needing to buy, or in our case, selling a home.


My mom moved into my home in Arkansas, so it meant extra work, extra phone calls to keep us up on the status of the sale -and a lot of talking to reassure my mom that all was well.


Horacio also helped us get extra help with painters and carpet-layers we needed after my mom and I moved here with me.  


Lastly after we got into “escrow,” Horacio kept us well informed, and helped with all the paperwork needed to close the sale, along with problems he ironed out in a very short time so that escrow could close in short order!


Again, thanks Horacio and best always from us!!!!”​



“We had the pleasure of working with Horacio Hernandez to find our first home.  As first time home buyers the task of finding a home looked like a very daunting task, however, Horacio was very good at explaining the whole process.


In addition, Horacio was able to immediately understand the style of house we wanted and what we're looking for in a neighborhood. As a result, the time we spent with him visiting homes was very productive, and he was able to take us to areas that really fit our needs but which we had not thought of before (including the area where we actually found our home.)


Horacio Hernandez is professional, courteous, extremely dependable and very efficient.  He gives a lot of great advice and insight, but is not pushy in any way, which makes it a pleasure to work with him.  When we are in of real estate advice in the future, he will be the one what we call.”​



“It was an absolute pleasure having you represent us in the buying of our mountain cabin.  When I look back on your services, Horacio, I cannot imagine anyone doing a better job!

You are very professional, an excellent listener, your knowledge expressed was concise and easy to understand.  Your personality is very soothing in tense situations; and at this point I would like to personally apologize for at times being abrupt and aggressive.  


Your sense of humor through it all is so appreciated Horacio… thank you for the laughter too!  Your perverseness inspired me, as I watched you drive up twice (over 400 miles round trip) to be of service to my family and I.  This is truly a tribute to your mantra Horacio; but to tell you the truth, the thing that most moved me, is when you brought your Mom up with you (which translates to 8 full hours with her, round-trip)!  I don’t think a Mother could have asked more for her son than to have time spent with him like you did… Horacio… you are the best!

You can count on me to share with you any potential clients what you have done for my family and I… God bless you Horacio and Merry Christmas to you and your family!”


“Horacio picked up very quickly on my properties and preferences and tailored his efforts to meet my needs.  


Horacio was always willing to go above and beyond to ensure that I found the right home for me”



“I am so grateful my friend Steve recommended you to assist me in finding a home as I feel I could not have found a more pleasant, helpful, and responsive agent to work with.  As you know, I have a few friends who are high-profile realtors that I had always planned on working with when the time came to purchase a home again. However, with Steve’s referral, I initially thought I would follow up on his lead by giving you a one-day shot in going out with you that first time to see what was out there on the market.  After our first journey in looking at several properties, I didn't even consider working with anyone else.


You were so quick to have an understanding of the type of property I was looking for and efficiently guided me to those that would meet my particular requirements.  I would not have found this townhouse had you not so diligently kept me abreast of the properties that were just coming on the market. And I know that your expeditious submitting of our offer is what brought us to getting this desired property.  The price, location, and size of our new home are perfect for our needs!”


You clearly know your business well and I am certain professional and pleasant customer service skills will continue to bring you great success in your career.  I will be sure to refer you to anyone I meet who is looking to find a home to purchase as I am fully confident you will take great care of them in making what can be a stressful experience into a pleasant and easy one.”



“Thanks for a job well done with our escrow. You are truly a pleasure to work with.  I'm proud to be associated with you in the Coldwell Banker family. I look forward to our next one soon.”



“I can’t thank Horacio Hernandez and Coldwell Banker enough!  I was so very well taken care of.


I am going through a divorce and trying to find a new home for my son and I was stressed.  


Horacio Hernandez was recommended to me by Steven Lopez who works at Coldwell Banker in the East Bay.  


Horacio was so wonderful.  He was very kind to me and my son, Thomas.  He is very soft spoken and patient. He really eased my anxiety in buying my first home as a single mother and single homeowner.  He really looked out for my interests and treated the sellers of my new home very well too.


Horacio always kept me informed of everything that was going on and what the next step would be.  He is a wonderful person to work with.

I am very grateful to Horacio and Coldwell Banker!”



"Thank you so much for all you have done to help me purchase my first home.  I cannot tell you how impressed I am by your willingness to go completely out of your way and put the extra effort into looking for a place for me.  It would not have been possible for me to purchase specifically the type of home I wanted, if you had elicited interest from the homeowners in the complex.  

It was a great experience to work with you.  You were attentive to my needs and patient with my many questions.  You never placed any pressure on me to make quick decisions or to increase my budget.  You were always diligent about keeping me informed. I appreciate your professionalism and your honesty in our interactions. As a first-time home-buyer, I felt completely comfortable working with you.  You are very up-to-date and knowledgeable in your field, and I felt that I could trust your judgement without reservation. Your experienced recommendations in writing the offer and in bargaining allowed the deal to go through quickly without as much stress as there would have been otherwise.

In short, I will definitely call you again when I am ready to sell, and I have no hesitation in recommending you to my family and friends.  Thank you again for your hard work, and for your very positive real estate experience.”


“Thanks for your help.  I enjoyed working with you.  Appreciate your resources in the area and thanks for referring me to them when I needed them.

WIll send you referrals down the road.  Stay in touch. Would like to include you in my network.”


“Thank you for being such a great realtor Horacio.  You provided the service that I thought only existed in the “old school days!”  Your efforts to take time in previewing houses prior to showing them before us is a rare quality touch.  We are so happy to have found such a wonderful, cute home with the help of you. It was truly meant to be and we’ll think of you when our friends need a recommendation or when we’ll make a move as we grow out of our first home.  Thanks so much for all your help and we really appreciate all you’ve done!”


“We would like to thank Horacio Hernandez for his effort in the sale of property at 818 N. Delaware, San Mateo.  Horacio had the sales material ready to go on our first meeting. He marketed it in a fashion that had excellent offers within just a couple of days.

When the offers were accepted.  He followed through with constant communications, letting us know everything that was transpiring.  He also demonstrated excellent patience as we moved through the process.

Horacio made this sales experience very easy and pleasurable and we highly recommend him to anyone who has property to sell.”  



“I wanted to write and tell you how much I appreciate your trust and patience in the search of my new home.  


In contrast to some other people who would have passed me in the long search, you kept a positive attitude with the process.  And you were very patient with me. That is double appreciated. Once I committed to the process, you made the rest happen.


I will keep your name and address handy and will refer anyone I see that needs some real estate help to you at the drop of a hat.


I’m so happy to be in my new home and you've been a great help to me.  Thanks again.”


“My family owes Horacio a great debt of gratitude.  We first came to Horacio asking for his help in selling my widowed mother’s home.  She spoke very little English and never had to deal with any of the finances while my father was around.  Despite her fragile state, she warmed right up to Horacio, who made her feel very comfortable (as if she were dealing with a family member).  The home needed a lot of TLC and because of this we (my family and I) felt that it could take months to sell. We were discouraged and felt bad because my mother was ready to move right away.

Fortunately for us, my father had met someone who he spoke very highly of.  He said that when he was ready to sell, he would call a fellow that he had met by the name of Horacio Ron Hernandez.  Little did I know that I would be calling Horacio about a year and half later based on my father’s opinion of him. My father was a great judge of character and he was very right about this gentleman.  

Horacio was optimistic from the very beginning.  He had no doubt that the house would sell. He encouraged us and raised our spirits.  Not only was he confident that we’d sell the home quickly, but he also laid out a clear and concise plan to accomplish this goal.  We thought it sounded too good to be true, but were pleasantly surprised when an offer was presented within one week of the house being listed.  Despite many setbacks (all due to the buyer’s lender), the house was sold and transferred ownership in less than one month. I’m confident that this wouldn't have happened if it weren’t for Horacio.  My wife and I are Mortgage Brokers and we can honestly say that we’ve never worked with an agent as good as Horacio. He possesses traits that we should all strive for. He’s kind, generous, genuine, professional, and possesses a wealth of knowledge about how to be an outstanding agent.  My family thanks you very, very much Horacio!”


“Horacio was given a unique set of conditions that seemed nearly impossible at times to satisfy all of them.  He not only, never quit, he always had a very positive attitude that it would be done. He succeeded with a near “perfect” fit for all involved.  Thank you!



“Even though we've only been in the house for a day, it's already been such a wonderful experience. Thank you for all your hard work and for keeping us on track with this purchase. Seeing our kids having fun running around in the yard has made it all worthwhile.


I just bought my first house and Horacio represented me. I am so grateful for his expertise, patience and interpersonal skills.


The listing agent made everything very complicated. The listing agent appeared to do everything possible to sabotage the contract. Horacio understood how to finesse the  listing agent, how to soothe my anxiety as a first time buyer and Horacio helped navigate the complicated world of real estate. Because of Horacio, I was able to purchase a home for an amazing price.


His determination, integrity and commitment to his client is astounding. Horacio demonstrates business, communication and psychological skills that should be taught to all realtors and brokers. I am forever grateful that Horacio represented me and got me started on my real estate journey. I will not hesitate to utilize his services and knowledge when I am able to leverage into another property.”


“Horacio worked with me for over a year in order to find the right home.  I highly recommend him. He was very patient and worked diligently to find me the right home at the right price.”


“There can be no better communicator than Horacio. I had several real estate matters going on and one was very complicated.  I ended up with everything I needed and more because he can manage time, pace himself and keep up with innovative methods. Horacio can listen to various views, validate each  person and facilitate a pleasant outcome for his client.”
