"Ehab is a wonderful realtor. He helped my partner and I purchase our first home and I was extremely green to the home buying process. I never felt like I was asking the wrong question or couldn't ask 17 follow-up questions to help feel comfortable along the way to homeownership. Ehab is well connected and savvy as it pertains to the various nuances within the home buying process. He knows all the right people to connect you with to help the process before and after. Very early on Ehab was aware of what areas and styles my partner and I responded to and he quickly curated our home viewing outings to ensure we were not wasting time on homes that would not work for us. In this market, that is so important considering how competitive and quick the process goes. Ehab is a 5 star realtor!" - Nick L, Oceanside

"Ehab Ismail assisted my family in selling our San Diego home. We interviewed 3 different realtors and decided on Ehab. What initially impressed us was that he conducted a research analysis of the real estate market in San Diego and more specifically our small community. He also laid out a page by page detailed marketing strategy. Ehab advertised himself as providing concierge level service. The other 2 realtors lacked the preparation and marketing plan that Ehab provided us. He was selected for these 3 reasons but on top of that, Ehab is a man who exudes professionalism, trust, honesty, and absolute commitment to his clients in handling the biggest financial transaction most of us will ever make. When Ehab told us he offered concierge level service he was not kidding. He provided a stager to help us prepare our home and recommended conducting a pre-home inspection. The staging of our home transformed it! The pre-home inspection allowed us to categorically target what to fix and what not to within a specified budget which Ehab meticulously tracked for us. He worked with us, literally. He helped me spread mulch, paint, and even swung a sledge hammer to tear down a brick wall! Ehab invited members of our neighborhood for a sunset open house. When potential buyers came over they got to meet 20 plus future neighbors while touring our home. Within 3 days of the house going on the market we were in a bidding war with 3 potential buyers. Ehab’s knowledge of real estate, his masterful marketing strategies, and his confident but humble personality guided our family to securing the best possible price for our home and exceeded our schedule for moving out of state. I can confidently say a 5 star review of Ehab does not do him justice." -David B, Birdland

"Ehab was truly a God-send for us. He was able to get our house sold a few days before Thanksgiving just in time for our cross country move. He was very patient, worked diligently and was very detail oriented. Ehab was such a pleasure to work. He is now a wonderful family friend." - Jasmine & Kris N., Rancho Bernardo

"Ehab was a pleasure to work with! My husband and I were first time homebuyers when our mortgage broker put us in contact with him. From the very first interaction, we knew Ehab was going to make the process of buying a house easy! Touring and buying a home during COVID was a bit tricky and very competitive, but Ehab was great in guiding us through the process. Ehab was very easy to communicate with and would set up viewings on very short notice. When it came time to put an offer on our home, Ehab helped us negotiate with the seller and even got our below-asking offer accepted. We would 100% recommend working with Ehab!" - Mark C, Hillcrest

"Our journey with Ehab began 18 months before we found our home. Ehab was patient setting up many home tours over the almost 80 weeks we searched. Ehab’s consultative approach and knowledge of this (some times) stressful process put our minds at ease from the beginning of our search to our final walk thru. His network of people ranged from financing all the way to plumbers and we were confident that he negotiated us the best deal possible! In the end, there are thousands of realtors out there.... but we can truly say that spending so much time with Ehab during this process, we grew to be very close friends and we still see each other as often as we can. He is a kind and genuine person that understands this is the biggest purchase of one's life." - Jude & Kenzie V, La Mesa

"A friend recommended we use Ehab, and we cannot say enough wonderful things about him. From the first conversation we had, he immediately eased our stress and assured us he would help us find the perfect house for us. He listened to our needs, wants, and found exactly what we were looking for in a home. He went to showings, recorded the home or Zoomed us in, and provided his expertise and knowledge about the areas, schools, and additional amenities for each property. Ehab is one of the kindest people you will meet, and his laugh is so contagious! He truly cares for his clients and works 110% to ensure you are well taken care of and you find the home that works for you. He is hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with in all our years of buying and selling homes. Thank you for ALL you did for us Ehab! Thank you for helping us start an amazing new chapter in San Diego! :)" - Cindy Williams, Chula Vista

"Ehab Ismail is a professional realtor, kind, diligent, and conscientious. We enjoyed working with him during a three-month home search, and we found him readily available to show us properties. He is knowledgeable of the market, was patient and flexible with us, quick to adjust his focus as we adjusted ours. He listened carefully to our long-term goals and helped us guide our search accordingly. An excellent communicator and a trustworthy advocate, Ehab is principled and honest. He establishes a strong working relationship with listing agents, and at every step in our purchase represented our best interest. He arranged contractors to supply quotes and expert opinions about some of the conditions of the house. After escrow closed, he provided references for contracts and other services that we needed." - Greg & Cherie A, Point Loma

"Picking the right realtor can be a challenge, but after meeting Ehab and having several conversations, we knew he was the ideal realtor for us. He is knowledgeable about the market, professional, attention to detail, and most importantly a great communicator. From engagement through escrow, Ehab managed the process flawlessly, alleviating all stress from our end. He went above and beyond to manage inspections and detail all repairs and facilitated any action items. Buying or selling a home is always stressful, but having an experienced realtor like Ehab guide us every step of the way was paramount to the successful purchase of our home. We would definitely use his services again!" - Minnie H, Pacific Beach

"Ehab is quite possibly everything I could have imagined from the perfect real estate agent. He 100% had our interests in mind and took the time to learn what was important to us. He took us to see some places to help us really get a feel for what we valued in a future house. Then he took us to multiple neighborhoods in the San Diego area to familiarize us with different neighborhoods. He mapped out our work commutes and did so much research that we felt like we already knew about the houses he was taking us to before we even got there. He found us our dream home that had everything we were looking for in a great neighborhood and way under budget. We wouldn't be living in our forever home if it wasn't for Ehab. He has my utmost trust and you should trust him to help you find your new home." - Scott W, Lemon Grove

"Ehab is an incredible realtor. He is professional, knowledgeable, and works tirelessly to help his clients. Throughout our home-buying experience he was responsive and thoughtful, and took the the time to go over every detail to make sure we were comfortable. Ehab also has a fantastic sense of humor, which makes spending time with him an absolute blast. I don't believe we would have gotten our dream home without him. I appreciate all his efforts for us and would encourage any and everyone to work with him. You'll be glad you did!" - Christa P, Mira Mesa

"My husband and I have bought and sold property in 3 different states over the last 30 years and Ehab by far is the best of the best! We would give him 10 stars! He knows the market and works endlessly to achieve the sale in a short period of time for maximum results. You want the best? Call Ehab!!!" - Tim & Cheri B., Rancho Bernardo
