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.
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!
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!
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.

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
One word: amazing. By far the best real estate experience I have ever had. Many things could have gone wrong with my purchase, but MBK and Philip definitely ironed out everything to make it the most painless transactions I've ever experienced. I will definitely use this team again if and when I decide to purchase in the SD area!!
We couldn't have asked for better real estate agents than Mary Beth and Phillip. They were always available to answer our questions. They guided us through the process of buying a home with ease. If they don't know the answer to a question, I guarantee they know an expert who does. After 4 or 5 failed offers with another agent, a friend recommended our new friends at Ascent Real Estate. I'm fairly certain our first and only offer with Mary Beth and Phillip was accepted because of their exceptional efforts on our behalf. They are great agents and great friends!
We first met Mary Beth and Philip at a local winery over a year ago. At that point in time, we weren't necessarily looking to purchase a home. We chatted for a couple of hours and exchanged contact info. They told us that they were there to help if we decided to start looking for a home in the future. There was no pressure. We felt like they were more interested in getting to know us as friends rather than befriending us for business.
We kept in touch for about a year and finally decided we were ready to start looking for a home. Throughout the entire process, Mary Beth and Philip were professional, thoughtful, understanding, patient, responsive, and trustworthy. They are genuinely nice people who truly care about their clients - all of whom become their friends. Mary Beth and Philip work quickly and efficiently. They understand the market in San Diego County and do their very best to counsel you throughout the process, making it as stress-free as possible. Both Mary Beth and Philip are willing to work around the clock to ensure that paperwork is completed, offers are sent, and timelines are met. There were times we submitted offers as late as 11pm and as early as 6am. They never stop working for their clients. I'm sure they would've responded at 3am if we needed them. With the help of Mary Beth, Philip, and their colleagues, we were able to close in 27 days. Everyone worked extremely hard to make this happen and we are beyond grateful.
We believe we've made lifelong friends in Mary Beth and Philip and we hope they feel the same way about us. They have our highest recommendation.
