I helped Nic and Tigger relocate to and buy a townhome in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego. Read the complete review of their San Diego purchase experience in the post below...
I helped Ken and Cindy buy an investment property in La Mesa. They were open to a few areas in San Diego and La Mesa, and we found them the perfect place, a duplex with a nice yard and two great tenants just a few blocks from downtown La Mesa. The problem that Ken and Cindy encountered during their transaction was an unexpected loan-denial from their lender, who they had already worked with to obtain loans in the past. Ken and Cindy still wanted to buy the home, and the denial was in everyone else's eyes an underwriting/loan officer communication error. I referred them to a local loan officer who several of my clients have used and have been happy with. He was able to get Ken and Cindy their loan without any funny business. We also had to ask the seller for extra time, but everything ended up working out wonderfully. See below the letter that Ken and Cindy sent me after their purchase was complete...

Read the full article below for a San Diego exclusive buyer broker's thoughts on buying homes with a dark history.
I helped Justin and his wife buy their first home in the Mira Mesa area. In their price range, the market was very competitive at the time with many buyers literally fighting over properties. They were diligent, and so was I, and somehow we were able to find them a home that they love! See below the letter Justin sent me after their purchase was complete...
I helped Andrea and Philip buy a home in a competitive North Park / South Park real estate marketplace. At one point, I helped them cancel a transaction (due to foundation issues found during the property inspection) and get their deposit check back. Andrea and Philip hold a special place in my heart because we wrote and submitted their winning offer the same day my baby girl was born (and don't worry, I was at the hospital with my wife for the whole delivery)! Here is the letter they sent me after their purchase was complete...
