I wanted to send you a letter thanking you and Stella for selling our townhouse in Mission Valley. After seeing how run down the place had become, I was not expecting to get much more than what we had paid for it four years ago. Your ability to set the listing price at the correct level, and your ability to negotiate that price even more, allowed us to sell the townhouse for over $15,000 more than what we paid for it.: Also, thank you for making it clear to the buyers agent that we wanted a quick close. It would have been even less than the 31 days if the buyers agent had not delayed informing you of the repairs the buyer requested.Nancy and I also appreciated the-numerous times Stella-came.to our house to drop off paperwork, pick up paperwork and pick up keys. She also handled the renters very well. She as very good at handling what couldhave become an explosive situation between the renters and myself. Elite Escrow also did a great job informing me of the progress of the sale. Karen Viens was available most of the time, and when she was not she had very good assistants that answered any questions I had.Thanks again for a great job. I will definitely recommend you to friends who areinterested in buying or selling real estate.- Greg N.
Thank you so much for all the help and support you and your team afforded us in selling our home. We feel it was your professional advice, expertise, and vast experience in real estate sales that helped us get the price we wanted for our home.We arc more than pleased. We very much appreciated the fact that you and your staff were there every stepof the way. You kept us informed and gave us great confidence and encouragement with your latest status phone calls.Thanks, also, for being there with us during our move. The packing boxes and gift basket sure were a tremendous help.We wish you and your associates the greatest success in the future. As for us, were looking forward to the next chapter in our lives in Prescott, AZ.- DuWayne and Amy
We are writing to express our sincere appreciation for your efforts to sell our home at 13783 Torrey Del Mar Drive in San Diego this past summer. In the past 20 years, we have sold four different homes and worked with a wide variety of realtors. While living in Scripps Ranch, we had become good friends with a number of realtors in the area. As a result, we were not entirely unfamiliar with the process of working with a realtor. However, we do not believe that we ever really understood what a realtor can and should do for his or her client until we met you. In our opinion, the scope and quality of your service was truly outstanding. We attribute our success in selling our home at a price that exceeded our expectations largely to your marketing strategy and the efforts of your exceptional staff. Without these resources at our disposal, we are convinced that the process would have taken much longer with a less than satisfactory outcome.We also wish to thank you for your efforts to help us through the last few weeks of the process. We realize that even under the best of circumstances selling a home can be stressful. As you know, attempting to negotiate with our buyer to rent back an additional week was difficult to say the least. With everything else going on in our lives, we were unprepared for their demands and reluctance to accede to our requests. However, your cool demeanor and willingness to work with both parties helped to resolve a situation that could have easily resulted in litigation of some form.We have and will continue to serve as a source of referrals for your services to other homeowners interested in buying or selling a home. You have a genuine understanding of the market and of clients and their needs. You exemplify the highest standards of a realtor and the real estate business.- Terry and Larry
I would like to highly recommend Don Pelletier and his group for buying or selling your home. Don is very personable and is truly interested in what your needs are concerning buying/selling your home. He makes the purchase and selling process a very pleasurable event. All the paperwork and footwork involved are completely taken care of while your only concern is to look for that new dream house. Don worked closely with us every step of the way while we looked for our new home, and at the same time selling the house that we were living in.Many issues arose during this process, and numerous questions had to be answered, as is with every purchase of any new home. But Don streamlined the whole process. He and his associate, Jocelyn, worked with us on every issue that arose and kept us informed constantly about any other problems that may need our attention. Each and every step of the way Don gave expert advice on how to proceed during the process, but ultimately he let the choice be ours. We found Dons advice to be the best there is.We purchased two homes through Don during the years and will never go anywhere else. We had an experience in the past with another realtor that left us wanting for Dons expert service. There is no comparison when it comes to buying a home; Don Pelletier is the best, period!- Ralph and Shira
TO ANY PROSPECTIVE HOMEBUYER,The first thing I would recommend for you is to start your process with a professional such as Don Pelletier. This gentleman will take you through the process as if you were his only client. in fact I thought all the way to the closing that I was his only client. I found out that he usually has up to 15 other clients at various positions in the buying process. Point is, Don and his team are available and courteous all of the time. He even has time to give needed encouragement during the precarious times of the process. This sale has been a delight~ Somehow I feel that I have helped Don gain new insight from working with me as well as I have certainly garnered new updated real-estate knowledge from him. This experience has been positive and productive and I feel you may benefit from his friendly and sincere approach to selling homes.- Dan M.
As a result of my professional involvement in complicated legal transactions, I have had the privilege to become well acquainted with Mr. Don Pelletier. Mr Pelletier was not only of tremendous assistance to me, I also found him to be through, well prepared and extremely pleasant to work with in situations which required immediate attention. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Pelletier and can do so with confidence that he will continue to maintain the fine qualities that I observed.- Bruce B.
Too good to be true .. That is the only way to describe Don Pelletierand his wonderful team. Call it wishing on alucky star or the work of Angels, but it wasonly by chance that my husband and I metBecca and were instantly headed off on awhirlwind real estate transaction with The DonPelletier Group.I wasnt even sure if I wanted to sell my homeand purchase another, but with Dons goodadvice and his genuine concern for my familythat only comes from being a father himself, itsoon became clear that it was the best thing todo for our familys future.Not being one to trust so easily, I found myselfcuriously comfortable in the knowledge that Donand his team were genuinely interested inhelping us along the sometimes overwhelmingpath of buying and selling a home in such a shortamount of time.My daily contact with Becca, Jocelyn and Staceywas delightful and fun. They were more like oldfriends who had come along for the ride tosupport a sister, instead of my realtorssupport staff. Had it not been for theirprofessionalism, proficiency and organization, Ipromise you, I would not have made it through.How can I thank you for everything that you havedone for us? You made it all too easy. Iappreciate all of the little gifts that would show upon our doorstep a good book, movie tickets,and a moving day basket. Youve sent uscookies, a housewarming plant, and gentlereminders throughout the process that showedus that you really cared about us and were neverfar away Nobody does it like you!How can I thank you for your supreme customerservice that no other realtor would think toprovide? Boxes to pack, a carbon monoxidedetector, well-timed reminders for us to securehomeowners insurance and change over ourutilities. Now, even months after thetransaction, Im reminded of your generosity andgoodness again as I received a copy of ourclosing statement for tax purposes.Its all these little things that make yourcompany the best that San Diego has tooffer.To anyone requiring a referral, I can simply tellyou that I find Don to be honest, sincere, andgenuinely kind. Please know that along withthese highly sought after virtues, he is veryknowledgeable and quite an expert in his field.His staff is a family that works well together toprovide their clients with superior service. Theyare a reflection of a great leader, and thecohesiveness of this team illustrates that they allshare the same ideas and commitment towardsa common goal of excellence.Don once wrote to me, It is my goal to haveyou as a client for life. To Don and hisawesome team, I would like to respond with anoverwhelming Congratulations youvereached your goal.I offer my highest recommendations for The DonPelletier Group- Christine R.
We want to sincerely thank you and your team for your efforts in support ofthe recentsale of our home in 4S Ranch. Your experience, professionalism and commitmentthroughout the process instilled us with complete confidence in your team, provided uswith the freedom we needed to focus on other aspects of our relocation, and ultimatelyled to a very successful outcome.We spent a considerable amount of time considering our options when we decided to sellthe house. We interviewed several agents and also researched options to sell the houseon our own. When we first met you impressed us with your obvious mastery of themarketplace, depth of experience and the polish of your professionalism. But mostly wewere impressed with your honesty and ability to listen. Your answers to our questionsand concerns were thoughtful, patient and genuine. It was no contest. We knew we youwere the one we wanted to represent us in the sale of our home.We were never disappointed with our decision. Not only did you continue to provide thewisest counsel and highest level of service throughout and even after the transaction, youalso gave us the opportunity to work with your team of stars who made every aspect ofthe process manageable despite our restrictive timeline and busy schedules. Withoutthem we would not have been able to turn a necessary focus to the many other details ofour relocation.You exceeded every target we had established. We sold our home faster than we thoughtpossible (in approximately a week), received more from the sale than we had forecasted(the highest price ever for our model), and closed escrow in perfect time (havingnavigated us through several tense moments). None of this would have been possiblewithout the assistance of you and your hardworking team. Thank you. We extend ourhighest recommendation to anyone considering your services.- John C.
I and my company have personally known and utilized the real estate services of Don Pelletier for more than eight (8) years and am honored to write this letter of recommendation.My company is a paralegal firm specializing in trust management, fiduciary matters and probate. We work with numerous attorneys throughout the San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties. Over the years we have been instrumental in the sale/purchase of many properties. It has also been our misfortune to employ real estate agents who are not familiar with the idiosyncracies of the sale of real property pursuant to the California Probate Code.Eight (8) years ago when we first had the pleasure of working with Don on a probate sale we assumed that he was just another agent who didnt know and didnt care about the particulars of a probate sale. Thankfully we were wrong. Don proved himself to be knowledgeable,bright and aggressive in the sale of property. He knew the aspects of a sale under the jurisdiction 6f the probate court. Furthermore where others would sit back and count their commissions and argue over escrow instructions, Don aggressively pursued the sale to obtain an overbidder and increase the net to the estate.Additionally, it has been our pleasure doing business with Don Pelletier because he pays attention to the sale until after escrow closes thereby resolving most of the problems, if any, before we are even aware that they exist. His diligence allows us to spend time on other matters rather than having to continuously oversee his work.We have recommended Don to numeroUs of our attorney clients and have never heard anything but praise for his work. Accordingly, due to Dons hard work and diligence when dealing with our clientshe has enhanced our practice.Additionally, I have used Don for the purchase of my own residence and discovered from ~ different prospective that what my clients and friends had been saying was true Don is fantastic!If you have any questions relative to Don Pelletiers expertise with regard to the sale of real property, please do not hesitate to contact me.- Callahan
On behalf of Greg and myself I would like to send our sincere thanks to you. Living in Hawaii and trying to sell a house in San Diego is not possible without help from someone. I cant tell you how impressed we were with your attention to detail, your outstanding customer service and hard work towards a successful sale. I guess the amazing part is I know we were not your most profitable customer! I wish we were still in San Diego to be able to utilize your services again. If we have any Navy friends transferring to San Diego you can be sure we will recommend you to them. If we can ever be a contact for recommendation for please contact us. We wish you and your staff all the success in the ever changing real estate world. An additional thanks to Gerri for her outstanding support on your behalf. Again we are extremely grateful for your tremendous work and your tremendous time and effort devoted to us. If you are ever in Hawaii, please stop and visit. Aloha!.- Colleen T.
Don Pelletier recently sold our home in the community of Savenna in Santa Fe Valley. During the time in which our home was on the market, there were many competing homes for sale in the area. Don sold our home while many others remained on the market. Throughout the process Don and his team provided excellent service and advice. If you are considering selling your home, we recommend you call Don Pelletier.- Bob and Bethany
We want to express our thanks to you and Geri for assistance in selling our horne and purchasing a new one. As you recall, we were quite hesitant to begin real estate transactions. Old real estate dealings had left us scared, saddened and financially strapped. You not only gave us expert advice, devoted personal attention and excellent service, but you calmed our fears as well.As we sit here in our beautiful new horne, we are reminded of all you gave to get us here. You did a wonderful job marketing our house. You called us weekly to give updates on every aspect of the sale and purchase. (We miss those calls!) You even had paperwork delivered to our door for our convenience. We are confident that your service is the highest quality available!There is no question in our minds that everyone should use you, Don, for any real estate deal. We also feel that anyone not using you could be making a serious mistake! Any real estate moveswe do in the future we will contact you immediately! Please feel free to use our names as super satisfied clients when you are dealing with prospective buyers or sellers. We also want you to know that we will refer you to all our friends and family.- Bruce and Margaret
My wife and I had the great pleasure of working with Don Pelletier and his staff whileselling our home in San Diego in the fall of2005. We are sticklers for quality service,and Don and his employees delivered in every possible way.Among the notable achievements of Don and his group: We were out of the country for most of the time that the house was on the marketand bids were taken. Don and his staff were incredibly accommodating andprofessional in dealing with us, though it could not have been easy. Don helped us successfully navigate several tricky issues in the sale, includingunexpected clauses from bidders and the buyers repair requests. Stacey, from Dans staff, went to great lengths to help us while we were out oftown, even going out of her way to get a house key to a family friend that wasgoing to use our home for a weekend while we were out of town.Don has reduced the complexities of selling a home to a systematic, repeatable processthat makes his business incredibly efficient and puts him in the perfect position to dealwith any wrinkles that arise during the sale.If you sell your home without any surprises at all, then maybe you dont need him and histeam, but when the inevitable surprise pops up, youll be incredibly thankful to have himon your side.I recommend him and his business without reservation and without qualification.- John G.
We would like to thank you for making our recent home buying experience a pleasantand successful one!As first time home buyers, we visited numerous real estate web sites to gather information but we were still a bit anxious about where to start. After visiting your home page and reviewing your profile, we decided to contact you in the hope that you might be able to help us. To say that you helped us is an understatement. From your initial response to our .first e-mail to the closing of escrow and beyond, your service far exceeded our every expectation.Of everything that went right, we especially appreciate that you were patient and responsive. Regardless of whether we had a simple question or a request to view a property, we consistently received a timely call back.In addition, we cant say how reassuring it was that you were calling and keeping us up todate, even when we didnt have any questions! Your comments and suggestions wereright on target and guided us through the entire process.Please convey our thoughts and appreciation to your assistant, Deanna, and to Amanda atAvalon Mortgage. You have put together an excellent team and we highly recommendyour services to anyone who is planning to buy or sell a home.Best wishes for your continued success!- Eddy and Reina
I want to tell you how much I appreciate your and your teams efforts in selling mymothers house. Throughout the whole process I was kept informed. I especiallyappreciated the frequent phone calls to let me know where we were in the process.Jocelyn Pectol was especially helpful and considerate. She has such a positive attitudeand is always upbeat.I have sold a number of properties and this was by far the most positive experience of thegroup.I will gladly recommend you in the future to family and friends.- Beryle M.
I wanted to take a moment to formally thank you and your staff for your superb service regarding the recent selling of my home. Having worked with other agents in the past, I was pleased to discover\ that there are in fact professionals working in the real estate business. From the beginning to the end of our transaction, I found your service to be exceptional: phone calls were returned timely, appointments were kept, the mounds of paperwork were completed accurately and within required deadlines. In short, I would again use your services whenever Im faced with real estate matters in the future and would recommend you and your staff to others without reservation.Thanks again for all your support, both professionally and personally.- Linda M.
Just a quick note to express our sincere gratitude for the services that you and your team provided in the sale of our property. The quality of the service that we received was nothing short of outstanding thanks to you, Jocelyn Pectol, and the rest of the Don Pelletier team. As someone who has been through a number of property transactions myself, from both a buyers and a sellers perspective, I would rate you and your team right up at the top.- Michael O.
I still cannot get over what a great person you are! Thanks so much for all your attention, your hard work, your super savoir faireLI received a survey the other day asking about your services, I could not resist in expressing mygratefulness nor my deep appreciation of how you were an ongoing success as my realtor. I wrote you should be a professor teaching others how to be realtors. I think I will talk about your ways for a long time. My only regret is that I dont know many people out there in San Diego but please know that whomever I do know will and have heard about you from me.Thanks so much for the book and the surprise between the pages another magic touch of yours:)!Please accept my wishes to you, your family and your team (Areta especially!!!) for a healthy, peaceful, loving Easter and may all the days after be also filled with happiness and the much success you deserve.Bye and Thank you all very much.- Angela C.
I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of the work that you did for me in selling the property on Haidas Ave. This has been an extremely difficult year for me since my father passed away. Being in a different state was hard, too. I appreciate your patience and help in getting things rolling as far as getting the house transferred from my fathers name to mine, and then getting it on the market to be sold.I thank you, too, for being sensitive to my feelings, as this house meant a lot to me, since I grew up in it from the time I was 3 years old, until adulthood. It was a hard decision for me to sell in the first place, but I feel that you helped make the transition much smoother for me. You returned all of my long-distance calls promptly, and answered my questions, some of them which were probably dumb, in terms that I could understand.Please know that I could not have done this without you, and that when my friends, the Peppers visit me, I will have them over for a nice dinner, and thank them for referring me to you. If you are ever in Colorado, please dont hesitate to call, as I feel as if I know you, even though we never met face to face.Thank you again for all of your help.- Mary M.
Having heard the numerous horror stories that many homebuyers have relayed to me about their home buying experience, I had some real concerns about buying my first home. I am happy to say that our experience was directly opposite of everything I had heard! Don Pelletier and his team made the home buying process a great experience.Our questions were always answered, calls were returned promptly, and we were kept completely informed every step of the way. Thank you for creating a flawless 10 experience for us. We will certainly recommend you to our family and friends.- Jesse F.
Absolutely the best realtor we have ever worked with. My wife and I have sold houses in five states and the three we bought/sold with Don and his team were the easiest. Others talk about being customer focused, but talk is cheap. Don was there from the beginning to the end of the sale and beyond. In fact we are still in touch 10 years after we moved away from California. If not for my relocation, Don would be the first number I would call if I were selling or buying a property.Our first transaction (sale) was a challenging one and Don got it done fast and for our asking price. The second (purchase) was also a challenge. The sellers were difficult to deal with but Don and his team were able to navigate this difficult situation and we got our dream house.Sadly, after three years, my job was relocated and once again, Don came through. Our house sold in record time and at top dollar. That profit has come in handy in retirement.We will always be grateful to Don for all of his help and cant recommend him strongly enough. He is easy to work with, cares about his clients and will get you top dollar.- Dave S.
On behalf of my family and myself I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you and your staff for the quick sale of my brothers property. Your knowledge and insight into the ever changing market conditions were key to this timely sale.Your professional and caring manner throughout this process was much appreciated. Given the circumstances that brought me to you, the patience and understanding you extended to me was much needed and beyond my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for their real estate needs.Thank you again Don, it was a pleasure to work with you.- Laurie W.
The purpose of this -letter is to provide a strong recommendation for Mr. Don Pelletier. He provided me with superior service during the purchase of my first home in 1996. I was so impressed with high level of personal service that I asked him to handle the sale -of our home when we recently had to relocate out of state.Mr. Pelletiers professionalism and knowledge of the San Diego market was a critical factor in selecting him as our realtor. We have referred several friends to him and they were pleased with his services.- Scott O.
This letter is a long overdue Thank You!!! First of all: We love our new home. We are settled comfortably in Bay Park, enjoying nightly fireworks shows from Sea World, and the cool ocean breezes. Sometimes, in the midst of all the excitement and stress of buying and selling homes, I am sure even the most enthusiastic people wonder if it is worth it. Two weeks after moving into our new home, unpacking most of the boxes, and finally feeling a little settled, we can assure you, it was well worth it..You and your team made that hectic time in our lives 200i0 easier. We know you dealt with a lot of details we were never bothered about, and we Sincerely appreciate that! We felt confident that you had our best interests at heart during all the negotiations. We have recommended you to our friends, and will continue to do so, because of the confidence you instill, and the attention to detail you provided in the purchase of our new home and the selling of our old home.Finally, we also wanted to give you a big THANK YOU for your gift certificate to Ruths Chris Steak House. We dont seem to have the time to dine out as much as we once did (house projects and Elizabeth keep us happily busy), but when we celebrated our anniversary last month, we decided to go the Ruths Chris. We were completely amazed at how wonderful the food was a restaurant that lives up to its fabulous reputation!You are exceptional in your business dealings, and we wish you continued success!- Randy and Lori
Jeff and I wanted to officially thank you for all you have done for us in selling the above referenced property.As you are aware, this was not a decision we came to lightly. Knowing that we were going to take a loss on the property was difficult, however, following through with that decision and remaining unemotional (or at least attempting to!) throughout the transaction was even more difficult. However, once we resigned ourselves to selling, we knew you were the team to help us sell it.Throughout the sales and negotiation process, you remained true to your reputation. You were indeed with us every step of the way, from negotiating with the property manager and tenants to making the necessary repairs for a quick sale to acting as the liaison with escrow and the sellers. You provided us with sound advice and counsel, advocated on our behalf and kept us informed every step of the way.Both of us felt that you truly had our best interest in mind, a quality which we have never found in our numerous dealings with real estate agents. More frequently you find agents who are looking for a quick sale and commission, regardless of the impact on the seller. We did not find this to be the case and are quite grateful for it!We never could have survived this ordeal had the two of you not been our agents. Although we are still smarting from the financial aspect of the transaction, we cant thank you enough for being sensitive to our dilemma and minimizing our pain (both financially and emotionally) where possible.If future clients ever request references, please add our names to your list of satisfied clients.- Paula T.
Dave and I want, you both to know how much we appreciated all that you have done with the sale of our house, the time you have dedicated to make it happen is truly remarkable, to say the least. You negotiated well in our behalf and acquired a respectable price that enabled us to be the proud owners of the home we have always wanted. Time was of the essence and had you not given us your quality time, this could not have happened in the time that it did.Thank you for your patience throughout and thank you for being there when we needed expert advice and guidance. Thank you for always returning our calls, no matter what time or what day it was.We want you to know that you have made us very, very happy and we will be very proud to recommend you and we will consider it an honor if you will add our names to your reference list.- Dave B.
Don is extremely professional and very knowledgeable when it comes to Real estate. Very kind and caring person. Ive had the pleasure of working with Don for several years and he has helped many of my clients. I highly recommend Don! Thank you for everything!!- Nick K.
Please accept our gratitude for the hard work and efforts that you and your office undertook to sell our home and to purchase our new home. And, please forgive us for the delay in expressing our appreciation. As you can imagine, we have been unpacking and getting accustomed to our new home, which can be a lot of work.We certainly appreciate the professionalism that you displayed throughout, both the buying and selling process. From prior experience, we know that buying and selling a home can be a very stressful time, but with your help, we managed to get through the entire ordeal without much worry or hassle. For this, we certainly appreciate you always keeping us completely informed at each step of the transaction, your willingness to give up your time on the weekends, your determination to protect our interests, and for your knowledgeable guidance. Without your valuable advice, we would not been able to make informed and intelligent decisions. In the future, we would absolutely recommend your first-rate services to our friends, family, and co-workers. It is not everyday that we have an opportunity to work with sharp and capable people, and we want our friends and family to feel a sense of comfort in working with someone like you, especially in potentially stressful real estate matters.It truly has been our pleasure to have worked with you, and we are glad that we have become friends in the process. Please also convey our gratitude to both Heather and Eddie. We hope all is well with both you and your family. Again, thank you for all that you have done for us.- David and Shirley
Thank you for your help in finding us a new home again! We appreciate your continued support and loyalty in our home-buying efforts over the last 12 years. This is the third home we have found through you and your attention to detail and service is sincerely appreciated.Thanks for everything!- Molly B.
I bought one of my first residential properties over 20 years ago and Don Pelletier was the agent. I was impressed then, by Dons professional attitude and thoroughness in getting all the details taken care of for a smooth transaction. It was great to reconnect with Don in recent years and to buy and sell more properties through him and his team. I could go on and on about how great it is to deal with a true professional who gets the job done with integrity, treating everyone fairly and overcoming any and all obstacles. As an investor who has been involved in hundreds real estate transactions for over 28 years, I have worked with the entire range of real estate agents, from neophyte beginners, where I had to do most of their work, to the most professional power agent teams that make investing a pleasure. Don Pelletier and his team rank at the very top of their profession. If anyone reading this review has any questions, you are welcome to call me at XEquity, Inc. in San Diego.- John H.
I have worked with Don and his team for over 18 years. I was fortunate enough to have worked with Don on my own personal sale and everything went smoothly from contract to closing. In addition Don always works with extreme professionalism and current knowledge of the market. It is quite evident that Don and his team hold customer service in the highest regard. I personally recommend Don and his team if youre looking for a fantastic real estate experience. All the best- Vince M.
I am writing to thank you and express my pleasure in working together with you. You have represented me in not only the sale of my home in Rancho Santa Fe, but in the original purchase back in 2009. I credit your hard work and determination to keeping the process smooth and stress-free during both the buying and selling experience.I especially appreciate your guidance and coaching on making the right choices from staging my home all the way to what was a difficult close, due to matters beyond your control. You are personable and know the market inside and out. With your extensive knowledge and many years of experience, I never felt uneasy about the many steps of selling my home. I could never have sold my home without you. In fact, the buyer appreciated working with you during this transaction and requested your contact information to be able to utilize your expertise in the future as well as refer you to other friends and family.I look forward, with confidence, to recommend and refer you to my family, friends and neighbors in the future.- Lana L.
Thank you so much for your assistance on the sale of the Mira Mesa property. I think the property was only listed for two weeks before it was sold. My appreciation and regards go out to you.I would highly recommend you and your staff to any parties interested in real estate transactions. The paperwork was handled by your firm in a quick courteous manner.Again, thank you for a job well done.- Sheelegh H.
Just a little note to say, thank you! The quick sale of our property, we believe was due to the planning and efficiency of your organization. We (Flo and I) especially want to thank Gerri who was always attentive to our needs. The weekly updates on Fridays relieved a lot of the anxieties we had about selling our property. In our book, you and your organization are without peers.When you select the best, you cant go wrong.- Ray and Flo
Don recently assisted our son in buying his first piece of real estate. Don patiently explained all the terms and processes involved with buying property. His follow up was excellent and advice invaluable. Don has developed many contacts in the industry who were able to perform their services in a quick and efficient manner. Our family has used Don to buy or sell at least 5 pieces of property in the last 25 years. He has a proven track record of ethics and fairness. He is a wealth of knowledge and exhibits strong integrity in his transactions. We would not hesitate to recommend Don to assist in any real estate t transaction. He is a true professional and a good friend.- T.N.
I want to let you know what a pleasure it was working with you selling my mothers house last month. As you know, last year I sold her mobile home in Carlsbad. The difference in the quality of service was like night and day. You were always prompt in appointments, phone calls and emails.You were able to provide referrals for clean-up, gardening and contracting services. All the providers did an excellent job and were fair in their prices. You kept my brother and I advised at alltimes on the progress of the listing, potential buyers and finally, the escrow process. You explained everything in a manner I couldunderstand and were patient when I needed further explanation. You provided your opinion, when asked, as to what we could do about fixing up the property and did not even say I told you so when we went against your advice and it worked out as you said it would.I know from my last experience that it is not always anything close to how you made this work.

I am writing to thank you and express my pleasure in working together with you. You have represented me in not only the sale of my home in Rancho Santa Fe, but in the original purchase back in 2009.I credit your hard work and determination to keeping the process smooth and stress-free during both the buying and selling experience.I especially appreciate your guidance and coaching on making the right choices from staging my home all the way to what was a difficult close, due to matters beyond your control.You are personable and know the market inside and out. With your extensive knowledge and many years of experience, I never felt uneasy about the many steps of selling my home. I could never have sold my home without you. In fact, the buyer appreciated working with you during this transaction and requested your contact information to be able to utilize your expertise in the future as well as refer you to other friends and family.I look forward, with confidence, to recommend and refer you to my family, friends and neighbors in the future.- Lana L.
Approximately six months ago my mother decided to sell her home and it was agreed that we try to sell it ourselves without the assistance of a Realtor. Several weeks after we put the For Sale sign in the yard. Don Pelletier called to ask if he could assist us in selling the property. We told him we wanted to try to sell it ourselves. During the six months it was For Sale by Owner Don offered some suggestions and did a free market analysis for us. The propertydidnt sell in spite of the fact that we received almost daily inquiries and showed the house to several dozen interested people.At the end of six months, we decided we had given it our best effort without success so decided to hire a professional. At least six realtors had contacted us and offered their assistance but Don. Pelletier was our choice. His enthusiasm, perseverance, dedication to his profession and ability to communicate with us were our reasons for choosing him. Our confidence in him was certainly well placed. Our house was sold three weeks after turning it over to Don Pelletier.- Margaret G.
Unforeseen events in our lives caused us to have to sell our brand new home. Don stayed with us during a very difficult period. He watched over and maintained our property when we needed to be out of town for extended periods of time. He couldnt have been more reassuring and patient and went way beyond the call of duty with the services he provided. Hire Don. You wont be sorry.- Linda M.
Don just completed another real estate transaction for our family. Don represents his clients in a way that takes the headaches out of selling your property. We trust him to help us determine accurate market value, which ensures that the property doesnt just sit there with a for sale sign. Don irons out the bumps that always come up during a sale. Years of experience make the difference!- Steve C.
We want to thank you so much for selling our house. You were so understanding, always available, knowledgeable and produced the results promised. You know that we came after an unpleasant experience with previous realtor. Needless to say, we were skeptical and cautious. Within a very short period of time, you turned an almost desperate situation into a most positive one. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone for their complete realty needs. Were more then happy to be used as a reference if ever you need one. Your professionalism and network of professionals within your work circle is commendable.- Tony and Pat
I would like to recap how enjoyable it was working with you on my home sale. Your market knowledge allowed us to price the home well above my expectations and your preparation prior to listing allowed it to be presented in a very professional manner; yielding a sale in two days at the top of the range!Additionally, you kept me informed on a daily basis through the close of escrow and always returned my calls promptly.- Jim F.
We wanted to take the time to thank you for the great job you did in selling our property!As you know, I am a real estate agent myself, but because of your outstanding track record in this market we decided to list with you. Our tenants had just moved out and we needed to sell the property quickly. We were more than happy when you brought us an offer in less than 30 days for OVER the listing price! Your negotiating skills are phenomenal! We had our money in hand within 60 days of the date we signed the listing.Both you and Gerri handled every detail of our transaction with efficiency and professionalism. The weekly updates kept us well informed on the progress of our escrow, and Gerri was always available to answer any questions we had.You provided extraordinary service and I would recommend you highly to anyone who is in need of a top notch Realtor!- Bob and Mary
I wanted to take this opportunity to formally thank you and your staff again for the outstanding job you did in selling our home last year. We could not have asked for better service or better results. The home sold within two weeks of listing and it sold for our asking price; it was a sellers dream for us.You and your staff handled the transaction professionally at every step, from listing through closing. Most importantly, we had complete trust and confidence in your ability to get the job done with the best possible results for us, so we had no worries during the process. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone seeking a real estate professional.Keep up the good work and good luck to you and your family in the future.- Dave and Patti
Terry and I would like to thank you for a job well done with respect to the sale of our home.As you know, our home was previously listed for sale with another real estate office. It was on the market for six full months, during the Spring and Summer, and it did not sell.Even though the market was very slow, through your sound advice and effective marketing efforts you managed to sell our home in the first 30 DAYS!You kept in close communication, updating us regularly throughout the transaction. All details were handled in an efficient and professional manner. We wish we had listed our home with you from the start!- Terry and Betty
We would like to take this opportunity to voice our appreciation for the services you and your group provided in our most recent real estate transactions. Loree and I have been continually impressed from the time we first called you to start things moving. Your guidance throughout really helped us not only to understand the steps of the process as they were happening, but also what to anticipate as the transactions progressed. Your knowledge of the market, and innovative solutions to keep the transactions alive were always wonders to behold.Most of all we would like to thank your assistant Stella Matalon for her tireless pursuit of closing the deal. During the course of the process there were many things that presented themselves as obstacles in the path toward the final goal. At no time was her loyalty to our wants and needs questioned. At all times she made us feel as though we were the only priority in her hectic schedule. She was always professional and prompt in all her actions. To be sure, you dont have to be told that you are lucky to have her on your side.With your motto of By Referral Only, you can rest assured that we will always give your name as both a quality Realtor and most of all a quality person.- Stella M.
I just closed escrow on what was one of the smoothest transactions I have participated in thus far. Don and his wife Gerri were excellent to work with on this purchase in Rancho Penasquitos. They were not only great to me as a buyer, they always had their sellers best interests at heart and made sure this was as stress free as possible on her since she was going through a lot already. They do a ton of transactions but they still have a way of making you feel like you are their only client by always responding to emails timely and they almost always answered their phones. I am sure I will be doing business with them again and would gladly recommend my friends and family their way.- Marcel B.
I just wanted to say thank you for your tireless efforts regarding the sale of my home. The market hasnt been the greatest this year, but you managed to get my home sold anyway!I appreciate the fact that you kept me well informed throughout the marketing and escrow period. You called me at least every week from the outset, answered my questions, and took care ofthe numerous details and obstacles that arose along the way.I would enthusiastically recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.- Steve R.
Recently I bought a house with the help of Don Pelletiers team they are very professional, prompt and very helpful. Being a first time buyer, they were very patient with me and really did their best in every aspect for my interest. They also gave very good references for finance, house insurance, etc. Overall, am very satisfied with their service provided to me and I highly recommend for anyone.- Khriesa T.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for all your efforts in the purchase of myhome. Asa first-time home buyer, I had countless questions and anxieties, all of which werehandled by you with tireless patience. You both made me feel like I was your most importantclient, even though it is obvious you are incredibly busy.The property I purchased was aggressively sought after and had been on the multiple listing service for less than 24 hours before three competitive offers were made, including mine. The sellers and their agent later told me that the most important factor in my offer being accepted was the fact that Don Pelletier was my agent after the close of escrow, I was told specifically that there had indeed been higher offers but that your reputation and persistence convinced the seller to accept my offer instead. You worked day and night to push my offer through, and I know you are the sole reason why I now have my house.I am simply thrilled with my new home. Our relationship did not end at the closing, as bothyou and Stella have been very helpful in referrals to contractors, handymen, painters, and cleaning services. I have already recommended you to several friends and will continue to do so very enthusiastically I cannot describe how wonderful it was to work with both of you and howecstatic I am in my new house.- Julie D.
