Nothing less than extraordinary”

Philip and Mary Beth are nothing less than extraordinary. They consistently put our interests ahead of making a sale. Any apprehension or nervousness we had was addressed and talked through. They made sure we were educated about every step in the process. They both introduced ideas about other properties that we hadn't even considered. Mary Beth is very creative, thoughtful, persistent and will definitely find the home you are looking for. You are in a true partnership when you are working with Philip and Mary Beth.

“Will go above & beyond to guide you”

What can I say about MB and Philip...They are AMAZING!. In late 2015 I was looking to sell my home and buy land.... The first people I called were MB and Philip. OMG MB knew exactly what I was looking for before it came out of my mouth! The expertise, vast knowledge of San Diego County, fantastic personalities, incredible marketing skills combined with the sweetest people you will ever meet sums up this killer agent duo!!!! They will go above and beyond to guide you, help you, hand-hold you through the extensive process of buying and selling. Hands down, you want to have MB and Philip as your agents, in your court!

Incredible enthusiasm, drive & attention to detail

My husband and I were lucky enough that we chose MaryBeth's team when we were buying our home. What immediately stood out for us was the incredible enthusiasm, drive and attention to detail. That last bit is so important because you want a realtor with the willingness to LISTEN to your must-haves and needs. We wanted to see properties that not just fit our budget, but had the amenities and space we needed so that our new home would work for our family. 

With their help, that was never a problem. They were always in touch with us so we were never left wondering if they were actively looking for properties or if we would look at another house that day. MaryBeth expertly explained in detail the process of buying a home and what CA-specific things like Mello-Roos meant etc. She also helped us navigate the various North County San Diego neighborhoods and guided us through the pros and cons of each location in terms of travel for work, and also made us think long-term about school systems.

Lastly both were so patient in explaining the escrow process, in going over all the forms, in helping us fight for a better sale price through her suggested counter-offers. The process was smoother than we ever thought it could be. 

But that is not all! It's the little touches, like walking into our home for the first time and finding in our (clean!) refrigerator, champagne and a variety of elegant and delicious appetizers. We toasted our new home and chatted away and felt so taken care of and valued. It felt like we had known Mary Beth & Philip for years!

You can't go wrong with MaryBeth and Philip as professional, devoted, and SHARP-MINDED realtors. They will do right by you, I promise!

"Warm and personal touch”

Dear Philip and Mary Beth,

I just last night opened the envelope that contained your letter and the settlement sheet for our condo that you helped us purchase. I cannot adequately convey how much I appreciate your thoughtfulness to send that to us anticipating we will need them.

I met with my accountant two weeks ago in preparation for this year's tax return and he mentioned I would need that information. I was dreading spending time one weekend shuffling through masses of paper to look for this one sheet. You gave me a significant gift in sending that to us -- the gift of time. Time, these days, is our most precious commodity.  

Bev and I are continually impressed with your thoughtfulness. We love the warm and personal touch as well.  You've earned our business for life!  Of course, we will send referrals your way if we ever have an opportunity to do that.

"Resulted in a full ask sale"

After months of searching for representation to sell my home in San Diego and being very disappointed with the lack of customer service and competency, I was blessed to meet Mary Beth and Phillip. Not only did they immediately commit several hours of their time on a weekend to clearly understand my property objectives, they expertly advised and helped formulate a plan which resulted in a full ask sale. I would highly recommend they become your real estate experts! — Robert O. Bell, Client
