- Gary listed and sold my home
My whole family is happy to have found Gary Kent. Gary along with his staff have proven invaluable to buying and selling homes over the last 20 years. He is a consummate professional and I felt very comfortable that he would be able to handle any issues that can arise when selling a property. Thank you Gary for all of your wisdom and advice!

Where do I start? Gary Kent and his team are rock stars. They bring a certain calmness to a transaction that I can't say the same about other agents. Real Estate transactions can be stressful but I have never felt that way when buying or selling with Gary. I know that each transaction is going to go as smoothly as it can and when issues do arise, Gary is great at working toward a resolution with his clients. His years of experience and market knowledge really pays off and he is a great resource for any real estate needs!

Gary Kent and his team is as professional as it gets. Selling a home can be quite stressful endeavor , however Gary and his staff made it smooth as possible. I was kept informed on the process frequently and any questions I had were answered quickly. His many years of experience and honesty places him well above many other agents out there. I would whole heartily recommend The Gary Kent Team to anyone who is selling a home or condo. I consider myself fortunate to have had him as my agent.

Would highly recommend Mr. Kent and team for your next real estate transaction, be it selling or buying. The Kent team recently helped in the selling of my parents heavy fixer upper, and we had an offer within a couple of days. This fast turn around told me that they knew the local seller market, and that I had selected the right agency to represent us. Having not bought nor sold a house for quite some time, they answered all my questions with the utmost professionalism and courtesy, even the most mundane. Thanks again to the Gary Kent team

The market analysis, marketing, and professionalism was exceptional. We felt that our best interests were always their first priority. We would highly recommend the Gary Kent Team. Patricia S

Gary and his team were great to work with to sell my house. As I had moved out of San Diego for a new job, their professionalism and diligence with seeing through the details of my sale while I was buried in the process of starting life in a new town was essential. They were good at communicating the important details of the process without getting me too bogged down in nitty gritty things during my transition. I'm pleased with the sale price and the outcome, and would certainly recommend Gary and his excellent team.

Never did I think selling a home would be so easy. Gary Kent and his team have all the right facilities to make home selling faster and simpler. Everyone I dealt with was dedicated and friendly which made this home selling experience very pleasant.

THE BEST EXPERIENCE! I put my duplex rental property on the market with Gary Kent on June 17, 2016 and left for Oregon to buy a new property. Within 4 days the Gary Kent Team had 7 offers and a bidding war. Although I was in another state, Gary and Trina expertly handled everything, even when my email account wouldn't work in Oregon and I had to use another provider or when I was in the Cascades out of cell phone range. The GK Team never faltered. Escrow just closed with a sale price $29K over asking. Gary and Trina worked diligently to ensure everything went smoothly. There were no mistakes or delays on their part and they calmed me through the mistakes and delays by the other participants. I recommend Gary Kent to anyone looking to buy or sell. You will be in the BEST hands with him and his team. They are very professional and I never felt I was being pushed to do something I wasn't comfortable with. Amazing group of people at the Gary Kent Team.Show More

Gary Kent and his team are amazing! We used Gary to sell our condo in San Diego while we were in Portland, OR and we couldn't have done it without them! He helped us find a great handyman for the fixes we needed, and Kate from his team stopped by to check on the progress since we couldn't do that ourselves. She was fabulous! Once it was on the market, we got a full price offer in 1 day! The team was great during escrow too. Trina helped keep the escrow process moving and we closed exactly one month from when we put it on the market. Through the entire process, Gary and everybody on his team responded immediately to any questions we had and everything went incredibly smoothly.
I'm a Retired U.S. Marine, an attorney and Real Estate Investor. Gary has sold 3 homes in San Diego for me. I have searched the area and couldn't find a better Real Estate Team-from ease of contracts, to marketing, to selling and finally closing. All highly professional and very seamless. I loved the way in which he hired special photographers to capture the real feeling of our custom P.B. ocean view home. And the creative advertising not only in USA but overseas. Gary is very smart but also very personable. His team is well organized for active marketing and very competent.- Giolinh O.

Wow! Gary Kent and his Team are simply amazing. He recently sold my condo in San Diego and I couldn't be happier. He handled everything - from dealing with my tenant, making sure everything with the HOA was taken care of, to negotiating with the new buyer. Not to mention he kept me updated every step of the way. Gary and his team are true professionals- I can't say enough good things about how easy and seamless he made this, especially since I live on the other side of the country! You ROCK Gary & Trina!- Vicky C.
We worked with Gary, Nikki, John, and Trina on two transactions recently with excellent results. The team represented us in the purchase of a hard-to-find single level 4/2 home in a great North Clairemont neighborhood with a canyon view. This was their exclusive listing and we saw firsthand how they provided high touch service to the selling client, who was elderly and needed lots of assistance through the process. Nikki, in particular, was amazing. Months after we closed, she was still completely responsive about any tiny follow-up item that came along. The entire team truly treats you as if you are a client for life, not for a transaction.This type of attitude made it a no-brainer when we planned to sell another property in San Diego a few months after closing on the purchase. After a week of following Gary's advice on preparing the property for sale, Gary listed it, it went to multiple offers on the first day and we closed escrow on an above list price 30 days later without a hitch. This is a tight-knit, dedicated team that knows their stuff and will never leave you hanging. Very happy we found them!- A. K.
I had an opportunity to do some work with the Gary Kent Team. In particular, Trina Miller, the project lead, responded quickly to my emails and questions, and then followed through on payment as promised. I would be happy to work with them again anytime. Thanks, Trina and GKT!- Brant L.
Gary is hands down the most knowledgeable, upfront realtor we've ever worked with, and we still haven't definitely decided to sell our house yet! His weekly subscription emails are incredibly informative; in addition, he communicates promptly and follows up. He is a true professional who genuinely cares about his clients. When we strayed out of his area of expertise, he very quickly referred us to a colleague. I don't think you could possibly go wrong with Gary and his team working for you.- Dennis D.
I called Gary Kent to provide me with a value assessment of my mother's home, and I found his no-nonsense approach to be very authentic and trustworthy. Gary was always conscientious about returning phone calls and replying to emails, and in the end, his value assessment was 100% accurate. His knowledge about the real estate market is unsurpassed. Gary Kent really knows Clairemont and the surrounding communities, and he is a true professional. Thank you, Gary!- Alice L.
When my husband and I decided it was time to move I knew we would need a team because we were buying & selling at the same time. From our first meeting with Gary we knew we had chosen the right one, which was one less thing to worry about in this process. Gary paired us with Marco Bailly to handle our new home search, John Crawford to photograph our condo for sale, Robert Geiler for the financing, and Trina Miller to coordinate us all. I cannot BELIEVE how quickly and smoothly everything went! The photography made our condo look like it belonged in House Beautiful and it sold in one day at full asking price. Oops, does that mean we could have gotten more? No, because we had immediately found what we wanted to buy and if we had asked over what the appraisal was (our exact asking price), our buyer would have had problems with his financing. Because it was priced right and we were pre-approved for our next mortgage loan it all went like clockwork. Ok, there was an unexpected 1 week delay on our buyers' end but Trina & Marco handled my questions and fears with compassionate professionalism. Gary Kent had been recommended by several people I know and trust and now I would do the same.- Lauren B.

I am a recent widow who needed to downsize my living space in Clairemont. I never sold nor purchased a home before. Gary Kent was admired by my late husband. Bob always said if I were to sell, that I should contact Gary. I did just that, in an effort to honor my husband. It was THE BEST decision I have made. My home was in a state of disrepair, yet with Gary's amazing network of professionals, it sold before it was listed!! Gary Kent was the answer to my prayers.Not only did he sell my home, he paired me with Nikki Mayer. Nikki is a dream. She listened to my wants and I am happily in my new home now! All of my offbeat questions were handled with the patience and knowledge of Trina Miller. This is an incredible team that flows and interacts with care and ease. I cannot say enough good things about the Gary Kent Team! I URGE YOU TO CONTACT GARY KENT! It will be the best decision you will make. All was completed in 30 days! Incredible!- Tracy B.
Gary Kent helped us sell a house a few years back so he was our first call when we were ready to buy a new home. Gary put us in touch with his associate Nikki and I couldn't be more grateful. Even though my husband and I had already decided which neighborhood and were very familiar with it, we searched for a solid 2 months and saw a lot of homes (let's be honest...we are picky.) Nikki always made herself available for showings and phone calls to answer all our questions. Even though I am sure she had other clients she always made us feel like we were her top priority. Also, we learned after the fact that our new home had received several offers and I have no doubt that it was the team's reputation and Nikki's excellent negotiation skills that convinced the sellers to select our offer. Everyone on the Gary Kent Team, including Trina Miller, the transaction manager, was professional, knowledgeable and made sure we were updated every step of the way. We absolutely love our new home and will always be grateful to Nikki and the Gary Kent Team.- Lin E.
The Gary Kent Team is extremely professional and I am very pleased with their professionalism. I had nothing but the best experience and will definitely refer Gary Kent to my family & friends!- Melissa E.
I have successfully completed several real estate transactions with the Gary Kent Team. There is always a moment in every deal that has complications. Gary's experience and expertise helped overcome the complications and move the transactions to a positive conclusion.- Kristen C.
I had the pleasure of working with Gary and his team. I have bought and sold a number of properties over the past couple decades, and I can assure you Gary and his team are top notch. The whole process was smooth and easy, as Gary and his team handled everything but my signatures. From the photos to the promptness of taking care of things, it was easy. The result is evidence of their expertise, as Gary advised me to ask more than I initially thought I could get for the duplex, and he even got more than the asking price and closed without a hiccup due to his diligence on qualifying the buyers and negotiating well those things that needed negotiation. This is a top tier real estate team that I would highly recommend, and would use again in a heartbeat with complete confidence in their capabilities and professionalism. Great job Gary Kent Team! Thank you so much!- Miff L.
Gary and his team of Rachel, and Trina were excellent to work with. This being my Fathers' property in San Diego and me being in North Carolina I felt that I would have many difficulties throughout this process. However, to my delight and surprise, it was the easiest thing in probate that I have had to deal with. If you are looking for a realtor Gary is your guy, if you are going through probate do not listen to the countless phone calls or letters from others in the area.- Michael C.
From beginning to end Gary's team handled my real estate sale with professionalism. I have always enjoyed Gary's love of community. Gary's Team has even hosted Customer Appreciation BBQ's at Mission Bay where my family enjoyed the festivities and great food. I would use the Gary Kent Team to list and sell my home without hesitation. We closed our deal fast, without incident and couldn't be more pleased.- Mark H.
Gary has developed the best team for Real Estate in the San Diego area.With his team approach and experience, you will get the service needed when buying or selling real estate in the San Diego area. I have referred business to him and the follow through is great. 5 Star Service.- Sidney K.
My husband and I contacted Gary to sell our home and we were not disappointed. From the moment we reached out to him, we received responsive and professional communication. This same communication continued throughout the entire process of selling our home. He is incredibly knowledgeable in the short sale process and the negotiating strategies needed. Gary is very easy to work with making the whole process a lot less stressful than I had expected.We had a great experience working with Gary and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family. We will undoubtedly be using him for our future real estate needs!- Lisa S.
Gary Kent and his team are truly the best real estate team in San Diego. Everyone on his team is professional and knowledgeable, combine that with Gary's many years in the business and you have an amazing team. While Gary's primary focus is on helping people sell their homes, his team of agents is focused on helping people find their dream home. His office staff is impressive and works with you every step of the way from marketing your home to helping you in the final stages of closing escrow.- Trina M.
Want PROVEN results? The Gary Kent Team is a name you can rely on.As an active duty military member, my limited time and resources are few and far between. Gary has been my realtor since 2002. His knowledgeable team is phenomenal. I would not trust anyone else to manage my real estate needs -- PERIOD.RESULTS -- this is what you can expect from the Gary Kent Team!- Margaret S.
Needing to sell my deceased parents' home in the Soledad Mountain area, choosing Gary Kent was a given. He has been a presence and a highly regarded agent in that neighborhood for years. He had also become acquainted with my parents over the years, and I know that he would have been their choice. A true gentleman, professional, knowledgeable, and always available; answering my questions and keeping me updated. Gary found a buyer for the home before it was listed. His advice is sage and I followed it. His team is pleasant, helpful, and also knowledgeable and always available. They walked me through things and arranged for services that needed to be done. I highly recommend Gary Kent to anyone wishing to sell or purchase a home. It was a pleasure and a success.- Kathleen S.
Honestly, the Gary Kent team is one of the longest and most solid groups of realtors I've ever encountered. Personally, I've known Gary for 25+ years. He sold my parents home. Sold me my first home and then sold that one. The entire team is easygoing honest and of the HIGHEST integrity. I wouldn't even consider buying or selling without talking to the Gary Kent Keller Williams team first!!!- Nikki F.
I was very happy with the work of Gary and his team. Gary knew that I was looking for a house in Bay Park with a view. He not only found me a house, but he then listed and sold my old house in three days!! Trina and Rachael were the best as we worked through all the details of the sale and purchase.- Ron B.
Gary Kent has built a business that is made up of great professionals, his 25 years plus experience in San Diego real estate was a great asset to me as I moved to the San Diego area. He was knowledgeable, accountable, and timely with of my requests. I highly recommend him.- Ralph O.
I've known Gary for a long time. His work ethic is 2nd to none. Back that up with a team of professionals and the choice becomes obvious. When it's time to move, trust your biggest investment to the man who's everywhere. You will be impressed with Gary's knowledge and professionalism. It's too bad All State Insurance coined the expression, "You're In Good Hands With" because it describes the treatment Gary and his team provide.- Alan K.
Gary sold my condo and home. He and his team are very professional, knowledgeable, and have an incredibly efficient process. Both properties sold quickly and at a fair market price.- Kim H.
My family and I have utilized Gary Kent and his wonderful staff for over 7 years. We have sold and bought our homes through them and the best part was knowing you could really trust them to deliver and keep your best interest as their focus. Definitely the best real estate team in town!- J T.
Gary and his team are reliable, trustworthy and efficient. From the simplest question, to a painless home purchase, they've got every angle covered. I've both purchased and sold homes with Gary. His team always acted in my best interest, and patiently moved me through the process.- Carrie M.
The Gary Kent Team sold my home in a week, and with 4 offers at that. His team kept me informed at each turn and all went as planed. If I sell a home again Gary Kent will sell it for me. All I can say is thank you to Gary and his Team.- Kyle P.
I have worked with Gary Kent and his team for a number of years and they are committed to excellence.- Alix K.
My wife and I had an excellent experience with the Gary Kent team. We received great recommendations for things that needed to be done before going on the market as well as ongoing information and advice throughout the process. In addition to Gary, team members Kate Bernd, Marketing Manager and Trina Miller, Transaction Manager, were most helpful in making the whole experience pleasant and expeditious. The house went on the market on March 29 and we closed the sale (at asking price) on May 2, 2018. We Highly recommend the Gary Kent Team.- James R.
My wife and I recently worked with Gary and his team to sell our home. The Gary Kent Team was amazing to work with. They made sure the process was smooth and eliminated the stress that comes with selling a home. We highly recommend Gary and his team and we will be working with them to purchase our new home.- Jason R.
I know I was a difficult client but Gary and all of his team did everything they could to make me happy and handle the sale of my mother's condo as easy as possible. True professionals! All of my calls were answered and all of my concerns addressed- Carol P.
They did a great job for our family. Trina was so great words cannot explain how helpful and supportive she was for us. Would recommend these people to anyone.- Michael M.
When I decided to sell my rental property, I contacted Gary Kent. Gary, right from the start, was reassuring and professional. I was quite comfortable and impressed. The whole process was like clockwork. He and his team kept us informed at all times. When we had a question, we just called and got complete answers. I live out of state and was put at ease with Gary's complete service. I truly can't say enough about the Gary Kent Team. My thanks and best wishes go out to you all.- Ron K.
We would like to give our sincerest thanks to Gary Kent and his phenomenal team (with a special shout-out to his superstar transaction coordinator Trina Miller) for recently helping us with the sale of a rental property in North Park. We contacted Gary many years ago when we were having problems with our tenant who had stopped paying rent and responding to our attempts to reach him. At the time we were self-managing the property from out-of-state (not recommended) and trying to figure out how to handle this stressful situation from afar. Gary took the time to speak with us regarding all the options we had for the property and never once tried to persuade us to list it for sale. It was clearly apparent throughout these conversations that he truly had our best interest at heart. After carefully considering all our options we ultimately decided to keep the property and evict the tenant. Gary was kind enough to help us locate a professional management company and legal advisers to assist us with this objective. After that experience, we decided that if and when we did sell the property at a later date, Gary would be our go-to agent. Fast forward to the end of 2017 and we were once again between tenants. We agreed that now would be the time to sell the property since the value had finally recovered from the 2006-2007 real estate downturn, so we contacted Gary to list the home. From the first point of contact he and his team were responsive, always showed up on time for scheduled appointments, gave us invaluable advice along the way and made the sales process as smooth as possible. The property was successfully sold within a matter of weeks and we are pleased with the final outcome. For anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the San Diego area, we highly recommend that you contact the Gary Kent Team to assist with your transaction.- Kevin & Mary Ann D.
Gary and his team did a great job for us. Our home had multiple offers in the first week and closed escrow quickly with a cash offer over the asking price. We could not have asked for a better outcome.- Elaine W.
Gary Kent is a fixture in our neighborhood. Long before I was even considering selling or purchasing a home, Gary Kent had been a friendly presence in the community. His team was wonderful, providing a wealth of information, advice, and assistance during my recent purchase of a home. I would absolutely work with Gary Kent and his team again.- Mary Jane S.
The following is an UNSOLICITED TESTIMONIAL. Thank you Gary Kent for expertly handling the recent sale of my Condo in Villa Marbella, San Diego.You have definitely earned my business, and there will be more listing in the future.From my personal experience with you, I appreciated most:1- your flexibility in all matters.2- your reachability: I was always able to hear back from you, even quite late in SD local time.Very important for an absentee Seller like me posted in the South China Seas.3- your openness to my suggestions (Ad with Military Housing & Flyers on Bulletin boards).Re: Trina, thank you for your diligence, and your efforts to make things easier for me with DocuSign paperwork.Re: Victoria, thank you for supervising partial re-hab of the unit and adding a feminine touch with towels in the bathroom, which I hope you were able to retrieve...- John A.
It was our sincere pleasure to work with Gary and his team. He listed my mom's home on Soledad Mtn and secured a buyer within 3 days. The whole experience was exceptional. Trina and Victoria as well as Gary provided superior customer service.- Greg S.
Gary and his team are great! He helped us get our older PB home ready for sale and got us the best sales price with multiple offers. Gary is also honest and will always put the needs of his client first!- Thomas N.
We contracted with Gary to sell a small house in Crown Point. His personal service was outstanding. He got us multiple over asking price offers within days. Gary's staff worked with us to set up the timing on the escrow so we could complete a complicated move out of the house. Gary called and emailed every time there was an important development. He usually called himself, rather than having his staff do it. (Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with having staff call, and Gary staff was very nice and professional.) During the whole process, I don't believe I had any questions that Gary did not anticipate ahead of time and address with me in advance. When I did have questions, Gary would get back to me literally within minutes. I never once felt like I did not know what was happening in the process. Anyone in the real estate market in La Jolla, Pacific Beach, and the surrounding areas should use Gary. They won't be sorry.- Bill S.
Awesome would be an understatement for the Gary Kent Team. Paul and the rest of the team were professional and quite skillful in convincing a seller who had a couple of deals fall apart to accept our contingent offer. Thanks to them we will be enjoying the upcoming holidays in our very spacious Santee home. Thank you!- Steven M.
Gary's team did a great job getting our house sold that he originally helped us buy 14 years ago. Both times were very painless.- Matt T.
Selling our house couldn't have been easier with Gary Kent and his very capable team. We started the process while living in Italy. Our house in San Diego was being rented but the tenants were moving out. We felt it was the right time to put the house up for sale. We interviewed two agents and decided to put our trust in Gary. Gary and his team handled everything for us. We have another house -- if we were ever to sell that house, Gary will be the first one we call.- Bridget L.
For many years my Mom always said when it was time to sell her home she wanted Gary Kent to list the house. We are very pleased with the outcome of the sale of my mother's property in Bay Park. Gary Kent got a full price offer for the home and we had the closing in 45 days.Gary and his team provided excellent communication in all aspects of the sale and made the selling process easy and painless. The ease of signing documents with online DocuSign was simple.- Leita E.
I have known Gary Kent for over 30 years and my family has always held him in high regard. Gary and Team Kent recently handled the sale of my parent's house in San Diego. We were under time pressure and they were up to the challenge.Gary and his staff provided excellent communication and made the selling process bearable during a very difficult family situation. I am grateful for their professionalism and will definitely refer Gary Kent to anyone buying or selling a house!- Ray M.
