      • Ilana listed and sold my home

          Ilana Huff helped my family and i sell our home and find our dream house. She was so professional and knowledgable in the area. We were referred by a friend to use Ilana because she was the local agent. She came with her team and staged our home and held our hands through every step. We want to encourage everyone to at least talk to Ilana before thinking of going anywhere else. I will always refer The Huff team! Thank you Ilana Huff!

        • Ilana helped me buy a home

            Ilana knows her market and area better than anyone . Best agent ever !!!

          • Ilana helped me buy a home

              We were so happy with Ilana and her deeply committed effort to helping us find the perfect home. Her love for her clients was only matched by her expertise. We were so thankful for her.

            • Ilana helped me buy a home

                There is no one like Ilana in terms of professionalism and caring for her clients. She was completely attentive to our needs, available at every step, and treated us as family. She advocated for us in the closing process and helped us make wise decisions. We could not have asked for a better experience.

              • Ilana listed and sold my home

                  We are very happy with the service and help we got from Ilana. She helped us purchase two houses and if we ever purchase another one we plan to use her again. She gives good advice and is available to answer any questions.

                • Ilana listed and sold my home

                    Ilana Huff is absolutely the best real estate agent I've ever had the pleasure to work with. If you're looking for a friendly agent who is professional, easy to work with, understands your needs, and tough at the negotiating table, Ilana is the one. I bought the 4th house of my life with Ilana's help. It was truly a challenging experience, but well worth it. After looking at several homes in the San Marcos, Vista, Escondido, Carlsbad, and Oceanside areas I kept going back to the same home. The home was owned by an investment company who was only in it for $$. We made several offers, but kept getting rejected (just asking way above market value). After research, Ilana told me what the house was worth and thought we should give it time (only on the market a few weeks). Maybe they would come to their senses and reduce the price. Meanwhile she suggested we keep looking, so we did and made offers on several other homes (not strong offers, but my choice). After a couple of months the original house I was really interested in reduced their price by $10K. I laughed, because it seemed like a lame reduction. Ilana encouraged me to "Go for it", maybe their willing to negotiate now and sure enough they finally accepted my offer at what Ilana said it was worth all along. I really enjoyed viewing homes with Ilana, she understands the market, gets offers out quickly, and provides the assistance you need throughout the escrow process. In the end she really new what I wanted and encouraged me to do what I needed to do to get the right house at the right time. The rest of the staff at the Huff team were also very professional and helpful. Great Real Estate company

                  • Ilana listed and sold my home

                      Ilana exceeded my expectations, and she made the selling process absolutely seamless. Her knowledge of the market helped us determine the best list price for our home, and we received a full price offer within a week. I would not hesitate to use her again in the future!

                    • Ilana helped me buy a home

                        Never met a realtor as kind and honest as Ilana. There’s no one else I would consider using to buy or sell a home.

                      • Ilana and Rebecca knocked it out of the ballpark! They sold our old home the first open house weekend for above asking price and found us an amazing house down in Coronado for way under the asking price! They went above and beyond to find us a house outside of their area of expertise searching for off market properties that fit our needs/budget. I know without a doubt, we wouldnt be in our dream house if it wasnt for them. Trust me, you dont want anyone other than Ilana negotiating a house for you! THANK YOU!

                        - Sold our Home!
                      • Ilana was the listing agent when I bought my home on Dolphin Ct. I was so impressed with her knowledge of the area that I called on her when I decided to relocate to Carlsbad. Ilana was amazing! She zeroed in on what I should do to get the most for my home, connected me with a fantastic lending broker, and negotiated for a fantastic deal on my new home. She then sold my home so fast I could hardly keep up;-). Needless to say, I am very happy with Ilana and her team. And, as an added bonus, I feel as if Ive made a lifelong friend in the process.

                        - Helped us buy!
                      • Ilana comes highly recommended and it is very clear why. We had 100% trust in Ilana and her team. She sold our condo in Carmel Valley faster than we could have imagined. She is an expert and made the selling process pleasant. If we ever sell/buy another residence in the future, we will be using her. Shes absolutely the best, hands down.

                        - Sold!
                      • Ilana and her team were a pleasure to work with during our recent home sale in San Marcos. She came highly recommended by one of our friends and we could quickly see her professionalism in the way she worked with us to plan our sale. What we particularly loved about Ilana was how she clearly articulated her sales strategy - both online as well as in social media. This was well supported by her involvement in helping stage our house. She and her team did an outstanding job in presenting the house very well to highlight its special characters to potential buyers. She also did the ground work to help price our house appropriately to attract the best interest without selling us short. Our home sold within the first couple of days of listing and above our asking price and the highest price for its floor plan. This is a testament of the marketing efforts of Ilana and her team. Her attention to detail and negotiation skills followed through with periodic updates and making sure that our closing went as smoothly as possible. Without doubt, Ilana and her team made our experience as least stressful. We would very strongly recommend Ilana's services - and have no doubt that she and her team are as good as they get!

                      • We purchased a home last year in Sagewood, San Marcos and Ilana and her team made the whole process super easy. Ilana is a through professional and always a step ahead. She is very knowledgable and guided us through the whole process. Huge thanks to the Huff team !!

                        - Helped buy!
                      • We recently purchased our home in the Cambria neighborhood. Ilana and her team came highly recommended to us from a family friend. We were so lucky to find her! From day one, Ilana has been so great to work with. She is very personable and always available to answer any questions we had. Ilana and her team went above and beyond to find us our dream home, at the same time of staying within our budget. We will definitely be recommending Ilana to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you Ilana and the rest of the Huff Team!!

                        - Helped buy!
                      • Ilana Huff sold our home and we are so happy she was our agent. She was recommended to me by a neighbor when were thinking of placing our home on the market. Her expertise, knowledge, and experience helped us prepare our home prior to listing. With full-time jobs and young children, we didn't want to be stressed with the timing and process. We received more than one offer and the home sold above asking. Thank you, Ilana and the Huff Team for your personal touch and flexibility. We could not have asked for a better experience selling our home :)

                      • I can't say enough great things about Ilana Huff as our agent! She was so helpful during the entire home buying process and I would highly reccomend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you for all your hard work Ilana. You are a fantastic agent from start to finish & I am proud to call you my friend as well! The DeStefani family

                        - Found us an off market property in San Elijo Hills. She is an area specialist.
                      • If I texted/called Ilana, she would get back to me within minutes! She always had our best interest in mind and knew exactly what we needed! AND she got us a smokin' deal on a house in San Elijo Hills which is unheard of!! Beyond that, she has helped us every step of the way from choosing painting and carpet people to getting a bunch of windows replaced (that were under warrantee) before we even move in. I can't say enough about her. She is one of the kindest people I've been lucky to come across in any business capacity. We are incredibly blessed to have had her as our realtor! Signed, The Cherry Family

                        - Helped us buy our dream home with multiple offers while we were out of state.
                      • I would highly recommend Ilana Huff and the entire Huff Team - they are professional, warm, knowledgeable and highly experienced. They are organized and helped relieve stress from the beginning to the end and took care of every aspect of the sale of my home. I felt like I was a top-priority even though I know they are busy representing hundreds of clients. They are truly an AMAZING group

                        - Sold Home in Carlsbad CA.
                      • Ilana and her team are truly the best. Ilana was there when we purchased our first home and did an amazing job. She even helped us find a renter for that home. When we were ready to sell we already knew who to trust to have a smooth sale. Ilana knew the right price to sell the home at and was spot on. We had the house in escrow within the first week and any unexpected bumps along the way her and her team took care of immediately. If you're looking for a home in the San Marcos/San Elijo Hills area, there's no one better out there. Thanks for everything Huff Team!

                        - Buy and Sell
                      • I recently worked with Huff Team for my real estate requirements and I went through Ilana at the Huff team. She went above and beyond for me and my family. Ilana and her team was always there for me answering questions and helping every step of the way. Ilana is very professional and has a ton of knowledge regarding her job. She worked with us like a family member and helped us to make appropriate decision through out the process I would recommend anyone go through Ilana if they need a intelligent woman by your side who will be there every step of the way . Best decision I ever made. Thank you so much Ilana.

                      • Ilanas commitment and personal care for her clients and knowledge of the local real estate market is unmatched. Went above and beyond and sent personal letters to the neighborhood we wanted to purchase in and it paid off! Honest and ethical. Highly recommended!

                        - Helped buy an off market home.
                      • I highly recommend Ilana Huff and team whether buying or selling a home. She is knowledgeable, caring, friendly, patient, understanding, works well with other agents and is an excellent negotiator. She communicated frequently and guided me throughout the selling and buying process until close of escrow. She and her team held open house on both Saturday and Sunday throughout the selling of my home and followed up with potential buyers. I'll definitely call on Ilana when I sell my current home and will continue to refer friends and family to her

                        - Helped buy Dream Home
                      • Ilana did an extraordinary job in selling our house. We were given every positive opportunity from her insight into the real estate market that we were able to sell above our original top dollar asking price. She quickly organized all details and calmly let us feel rest assured that we were in good hands. Ilana Huff is spot on with all concerns of seller and buyer. She treated us like family, showing she truly cares about her clients. Her knowledge to details, her friendliness and genuine care for her clients is obvious from start to finish. We feel fortunate to have had the experience working with Ilana Huff. She is a wonderful pleasure to work with when selling or buying a home!

                        - Sold Our Home
                      • Ilana Huff and her team are simply amazing! They are the go-to experts for San Elijo Hills. Being in the military, we've moved often and have purchased a home at every duty station. Ilana is the best agent we've worked with by far! We met with the other two local SEH companies before listing our house and ultimately decided to go with Ilana. I'm so glad we did! With new orders to move, we needed to sell quick and Ilana moved lightning fast. Before we even hit the market, we had offers--thanks to Ilana's connections in the community and large pool of buyers. After a couple days on the market, we accepted an offer OVER asking price and closed three weeks later. It's Ilana's professionalism and kindness that made the entire experience so smooth and enjoyable. She's the sweetest realtor ever and absolutely the best! Ilana worked tirelessly for us and will do the same for you. We couldn't have asked for a better selling experience!

                        - Helped with our Military move!
                      • I met Ilana years ago and fell in love with her personality- I decided then that if I ever wanted to sell that it would be with her- and she did not dissapoint! She sold my house and found me the perfect condo and Ill admit, I did not make it easy on her! But she never gave up and found my gem before it ever even went on the market! No joke, my condo is one of maybe 15 that have an ocean view like mine. She is the BEST in SEHs!

                        - Bought and Sold Home in San Elijo Hills
                      • I am very thankful for the neighbors that recommended Ilana Huff with The Huff Team. They said she was a woman of integrity and very kind. She presented to us very honestly what we needed to do to ready our home for the market. She offered many services to assist us along the way. Her team of photographers were all very considerate of our home and worked very quickly with wonderful results. She presented several buyers to us and we were able to close a deal without even having to list our home. She was available with quick responses to our every need. While transactions of this magnitude can be very stressful for both the buyer and seller, she did a great job of bringing both parties together and making it so very easy!! It's not often that there's a "group hug" with the buyers and sellers! :)

                        - Helped Sell our Home and made the transition seemless
                      • We have used Ilana in the purchase and sale of our 1st townhouse in SEH and the purchase of our home in SEH. She is truly the best real estate agent we've ever worked with and will always use her in the future!! Thank you for everything you've done for us!??

                        - Sold Townhome in San Elijo Hills and Helped us buy our next home in San Elijo Hills
                      • If you are looking for a perfect real estate agent, then STOP. Ill save you some trouble because I have already found her. Ilana Huff is the best of the best. Her sense of the market is uncanny and because of this, she was able to price our home right and then sell it well over our asking price the highest in our neighborhoodever! She was even able to negotiate rent back for us until she found us our next home, which she did in record time and within our budget impressive given the limited inventory! Ilana is dedicated to her craft and her marketing is sophisticated and savvy. She has a keen eye and staged our home beautifully, generating interest before it was even listed. Ilana is patient, professional, and is an expert in her field. She guided us through the many offers we received and helped us make an informed decision in accepting the right one she sold our house in just 4 days! The entire process of selling our home and buying a new one was EASY. She handled all the details for us and kept us in the loop every step of the way. If you choose Ilana as your agent, you will not be disappointed; I recommend her 100% without hesitation. We were truly lucky to have her
