Cannot believe that buying and selling real estate could feel so effortless... and rewarding. As a seller, Bern made sure that we were able to achieve our asking price (and then some extra). He set the stage perfectly for showing, paired with expert marketing, photos, and the use of new age technology to attract multiple buyers. He also walked us through the pros and cons of each offer we received to help us get the most out of our property. As a buyer, he helped us see dozens of properties without any issues, went around our schedule flexibly, and discussed the details thoroughly about each property we were considering. Then, as we made the offer, he acted as the perfect intermediary by being the go-between for us and had the difficult conversations on our behalf. We couldn't have asked for a better partner during the buying/selling process. Bern actually cared more about our interests and our happiness over any commission he may have earned. I couldn't imagine having a better experience. Thanks, Bern!

Bern was such a big help to us on our move from the East coast. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area and helped us to narrow down a location to look for our new home in San Diego. He was very patient, taking us around to many different areas/homes and answering all of our numerous questions. Bern is also familiar with East coast real estate and was able to guide us on some of the differences on what we would find in CA. Since we landed on a new construction home, Bern also helped us find temporary housing in the school district we needed to be in while we waited for our home to be built. During the entire process, he stayed in touch to make sure everything was going smoothly. Not only is Bern a great realtor but also a great guy - friendly, professional and a great resource for information. We highly recommend him to anyone needing the best realtor!" - Sharla L.

Just closed yesterday on a condo sale with Bern and I cannot say enough about his skills, his service and willingness to do what it takes to get the maximum value from a home sale. I interviewed several agents and stumbled upon Bern on Yelp. What I liked about Bern as that he's down to earth and comfortable to deal with and clearly skilled at the modern art of marketing a property. The greatest part of my sale was that Bern recommended a sales price substantially higher than the other agents I talked to and then even more amazing, we got that price. Most agents look at just "closed" transactions but he poked around and found a pending unit not yet closed, pending at a much higher price than other comps and used that "comp" to justify a record price for similar units in the project. Bern is truly full service. He supplied awesome vendors to do needed rehab on the place at great prices pre-listing and literally drove to my office 4 or 5 times to pick up paperwork or facilitate signing docs, etc that truly made this thing a breeze. I had total confidence in letting him handle it and when a decision would arise he would explain both sides but would support any call I made. Always a text away, I now personally know why Bern gets the glowing reviews that he does. I highly recommend him for any sale or purchase. Go Bern!" - Rich C.

My wife and I recently moved to the San Diego area in order to be closer to our kids, and grandkids, and after more than ten months of searching with four different agents, we went to Bern. We knew that Bern was special when we went to interview him, and unlike other agents who had asked us to sign an exclusivity contract for 6 months or longer, Bern told us that if any time we were not happy with his services we were welcome to "fire" him! After working only a few days with Bern, I realized that he is very methodical and always learning about the pulse of the real estate in different geographical areas and times. He has the rare quality of being very patient and at the same time being extremely knowledgeable and detailed oriented. Bern is also very low-key and likable. These qualities made him very effective during the negotiations to purchase our "dream home". There were four other offers, but because of his amiable relationship with both the seller and his realtor, they ended up choosing our offer! If you are looking to buy or sell your home, do yourself a favor and hire Bern, he the BEST! " - Guillermo P.

About Bern

I pride myself on not being your typical real estate agent. I have the unique ability to use the skills I gained working in the entertainment industry to help buy or sell your next property, while providing you with access to a portfolio of new thinking. I don’t just understand the rapidly changing realtor climate. I embrace these new trends; marketing new listings with captivating photos and video, reaching a younger, tech-savvy client and collaborating with the next generation of buyers and sellers

I also believe that a big part of my job is to know what is going on in my community. The job of a Real Estate agent has evolved over the years as everyone has access to new listings. We no longer just show houses, we need to be experts on the communities that we live and work in. People want to know what it's like to live in the community and that's why I created a community Facebook page which highlights local businesses and happenings in the area that we all call home.
