“If you are serious about selling or buying a home, you need professionals to guide you through the process because homes are investments, and investments are all about the bottom-line. My husband and I have lived in the Ocean Beach/Point Loma area for nearly 30 years, but it was time for a change and we recently started looking for a new dream home in a different area of San Diego County. If you haven’t dabbled in real estate lately, you may have forgotten what an emotional roller coaster selling your home can be. Fortunately, we hired Layne and Rachel Harrison. They helped us sell our Ocean Beach home (over list price) and guided us through the purchase (below list price) of our dream home in the community of Mt. Helix. What a ride! Ours was a complex listing and purchase due to a contingency sell. Suffice to say, Layne and Rachel had our best interests at each step, helping us understand the demands of selling our property, getting us the help we needed at every turn (great marketing, painters, electricians, inspectors, movers, cleaners) and making sure that we were being taken care of every step of the way (escrow was a breeze) as we moved into our new home. We highly recommend Layne and Rachel for anyone wanting a first class, realty power-team that will protect your interests and get you the best deal. They know real estate! Layne and Rachel — the very best.” - Robert and Gail B.

“Layne and Rachel have been absolutely amazing throughout the entire process of selling our current home and buying our new one. There were so many moving pieces, however they made it all so easy by guiding us every step of the way. We highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a house in the San Diego coastal regions.” - Adam M.

“Layne and Rachel are the best! They guided us through the process of buying and selling our home simultaneously (both escrows closed the same day) without issue! We are extremely happy with all the help they have provided. Not only in buying and selling, but also in ideas for improvements and care of the new home. They made the process as painless as possible. We highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy and/or sell in San Diego.” - Aaron R.

“You won't find a better realtor in San Diego. Layne and Rachel went far above and beyond in helping us sell our home. From marketing, to staging, to all the little things you don't think of (but they do), they made the process completely seamless during what is usually a stressful and hectic time. They were professional, genuine, and tactical during the entire transaction. The result exceeded my expectations (especially the price we got for our home!) I will absolutely use them again and I sincerely hope you do too.” - Jesse S.
