"As an off-site owner of a downtown condo, it was important for us to look for someone who not only had an in-depth understanding of the urban downtown real estate market, but also someone we could trust and have confidence in. Jerry came prepared on our first meeting and had a strategy and timeline to market the property since we had a tenant at the time. It was also an advantage that he lived in the condo building and was familiar with its history, staff, amenities, financials, policies, and rules. Once the unit was vacated, he had the unit cleaned, beautifully staged with the furnishings we had, and professionally photographed for release on MLS. All this while we had already relocated to another state. The unit sold within a week. Jerry’s professionalism, calm demeanor, and attention to detail was appreciated during the process, He replied promptly to emails and updated us on next steps. We are fortunate to have met Jerry and happy that he was on our side.." - Rowena

"As an out of town seller of a rental property, Jerry managed all the details I couldn't be on site to handle, including cleaning, staging, repairs, inspection period details and more. Less than 3 months from listing agreement to close of escrow, and I came away with $15K over appraised value after all expenses. I couldn't have achieved this result without Jerry's expertise." - Andrew

"We were buyers from out of town, and interested in buying a second home in San Diego. I met Jerry at an open house in the summer of 2015. We began talking about our wants and needs for this property. Jerry was helpful in helping us focus on the specific neighborhoods and product type that we wanted, and was further helpful in steering us away from product, and neighborhood that were undesirable (unbeknownst to us as we did not have that local knowledge). After a 6 month search, we put an offer in on a property and are now owners of that condo. The closing was very smooth."
