Jefi Moultrie
Thrive Real Estate
About Jefi

My name is Jefi Moultrie, your San Diego Real Estate Specialist and I love San Diego! The people and the climate make it a most wonderful place to be. I have lived, worked and invested locally since the early nineties and moved here permanently from Seattle in 1998. Real estate is my passion. Having been raised in the industry, my career choice as a Real Estate Agent was obvious. After a successful career as a buyer for Nordstrom, I made the transition to real estate in 2001 and have never looked back. I have worked in the capacity of salesperson, sales and motivational trainer and team leader. When a lot of agents were leaving the business in 2005 and 2006, I was figuring out innovative ways to help my clients in their real estate ventures. I have three children, Jordi, Eli and Meredith and a wonderful, very supportive husband Cody. The kids range in age from 15 to 21 years old and attended schools locally here in La Mesa. We are a passionate, creative, tight-knit family that love to laugh, travel, and play sports. I absolutely adore all of them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a top real estate agent do?

Read more
What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Descanso?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Descanso?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Descanso, CA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Descanso?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more
What is the average real estate agent commission for agents in Descanso?
While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents in Descanso work for 6% of the home price.
Why should I use HomeLight to find a Descanso real estate agent?
HomeLight analyzes all real estate agent in Descanso to bring you custom, unbiased, data-driven recommendations. We use actual home sales transaction data to compare Descanso real estate agent and will only introduce you to the top performing agents.
