Justin's List of Recommended Contractors in San Diego

The buying process may be over when you move into your new San Diego home, but the work of owning a home never stops!

Throughout the life of your home, you’re likely to need the help of a whole variety of professional contractors, from plumbers to landscapers to roofers. Just like you need a buyer’s agent you can trust, you need contractors you can trust, too!

As a service to my past clients, I’ve put together a list of some of the best San Diego contractors

Please keep in mind that everyone has different tastes and opinions. I cannot vouch 100% for the work of any of these contractors for legal reasons (gotta love how litigious California is!), but each of these are contractors/businesses with whom either my clients or I have had good experiences.

Please let me know if YOU have a contractor to ADD to (or remove from) the list.

I always recommend that you interview 3 to 4 contractors for any job you’re doing at your home. You’ll learn a lot by taking the extra time, and you’ll have a much better chance of choosing a contractor with whom you’ll be the most happy!

How to Introduce me (Justin) to a Friend Who is Planning to Buying a Home

Most people start out their home search by researching homes and neighborhoods online AND going to open houses. This is a great time to introduce your friends to me.

Just like when you and I first met, I typically offer to meet with ANY potential home buyer for a free Buyer Strategy Session. 

I do my best to take amazing care of your co-workers, family, and friends, and I truly appreciate any introductions you make for me. Thank you!
