Ratings & Reviews

Betty just helped my husband and I buy our new home in Leucadia! We moved from Los Angeles 2.5 years ago and have been looking on and off ever since. We thought with the recessionary economy and post sub-prime crisis, we would score a deal and have tons of options but it was just the opposite. The lack of inventory and holding prices were super frustrating, but Betty stuck it out with us and encouraged us to keep looking by finding property after property. We were super picky clients too! We wanted to be within a certain distance from the highway, wanted a decent size lot, needed an accessory unit for my mother-in-law and had a strict budget. She showed us upwards of 25 properties in the area and really went to bat for us when we made our offers. She was persistent and firm with the selling agents, walked us through every step of the escrow phase and really went above and beyond our expectations during the due diligence to make sure that we covered all potential risks. Our ability to buy the house hinged on having the accessory unit and with this particular property, we were going to have to build it. So not only did she make sure the house was sound to buy, she also helped us make sure that we were going to be able to add the granny flat by contacting the city permit office, contractors, County Health Dept, roofers, electricians, plumbers, etc. And to top it off, she does a ton of volunteer work in the community. How she finds the time is really beyond me. But bottom line is Betty Steele clearly cares for her clients in ways that I doubt most real estate agents do. She's a long-time resident of north county, highly-respected in the community, and will go to lengths to help you find your dream home.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Encinitas, CA.

I will continue to recommend Betty to all of my friends and family in the San Diego county area, as her overwhelming about of knowledge and experience in the local realty market has dwarfed every other realtor I have spoken to. We have had nothing but fantastic experiences and stellar, personalized serviced from her and her entire staff. They are on call 24/ 7 and always anticipate our needs and exceed our expectations.

We have bought two houses with Betty's help and are in the process of selling our first and we couldn't be happier with our experience for each property. Great person and amazing realtor.

Sold a home in 2013 in Cardiff by the Sea, Encinitas, CA 92007.

I've had a number of transactions with Betty both buying and selling. She is extremely professional and highly knowledgeable in her field. Having many years of experience and expertise, she will meet and exceed your expectations whether you are listing a home or selling one. There are so many times she goes above and beyond the average agent & I have quite a few examples. Once I was buying a home that was missing closet doors (as well as a few other things) and I went to Home Depot. I ran into Betty and asked her what was she up to there. She said actually she was there pricing different door options for me. (In case I wanted something other than a standard door, which I did!) instead of just crediting me the money in escrow for the missing doors, she had seller buy & place them before the close of escrow. Another time when I sold, she had all the comparables/current market trend information for me. She got me the best price for my home and sold it in less than a week (and this was in 2007 after the market crashed). As you can see, I really can't speak highly enough of Betty Steele & I recommend her greatly.  More Less
