Ratings & Reviews

Ian was fantastic! Selling a home comes with its many challenges and stressors, to say the least! Within one week of placing our home on the market, we received multiple offers and were in escrow at above asking price!! He truly helped to ease the transition to our family's next chapter and I couldn't be happier with our choice to work with him!! He is professional, knowledgeable, and on top of his game! I highly recommend him if you are ready to list your home! Thank you, Ian! ~Rick & Loretta Beaman

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA.

Ian Sells has assisted me numerous times when it come to real estate. Ian has not only assisted me in finding great deals, he's also provided me great advice. I'm not an expert when it comes to real estate and I always have a lot of questions, so having someone like Ian to answer my questions is always extremely helpful. I purchased two homes with Ian's assistance as well as sold those two same homes. When I look to purchase more property I will 100% ask Ian once again for guidance.

Sold a Single Family home in 2006 in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.

We have worked with Ian on several transactions. From our personal residence to investment opportunities he has always come to us with great ideas. He cares more about the long term relationship vs a short term transaction. We have personally referred him to several friends and family members and he has treated them with respect and provided a great experience. I highly recommend Ian for your next real estate venture.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.

Let's just say this man looked with me for a home for more than a year. Home after home over and over again. Never got tired, always available! All the paperwork I was able to sign online. And my closing cost was very low too. Highly recommended!!!

Ian is exactly what you want in a realtor. Highly knowledgeable and returned calls, texts, or emails quickly. He is always there for you.

From beginning to the very end Ian was a professional and a pleasure to work with. He has my highest possible recommendation

Sold a home in 2013.

Ian is an amazing agent! I had always heard horror stories about doing a short sale and the length of time they take...not with Ian. He worked with the bank, my property manager and myself, we were able to get my condo approved for a short sale, placed on the market and closed under 45 days. If you are looking for an honest agent that keeps you well informed, you have found your guy!

Sold a home in 2012 in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA 92127.

Ian sold my house and navigated the transaction exceptionally. The house went into escrow quickly after getting six varied offers in less than two weeks: two low-ball, a full-price cash, and three above-asking. Ian was able to realistically price the house based on market conditions to generate multiple offers and buyer competition. In retrospect, careful pricing was important to getting a favorable outcome, i.e. a relatively quick sale for top dollar. You'll find Ian a straight shooter, a hard worker that is looking to build a long-term relationship, and someone that recognizes that he's got to bring value to the table. Whereas some other agents will over-promise just to please you and gain your business, Ian won't do that which ultimately is a greater service to his clients. He's about substance, getting stuff done, yet Ian also has the polish to negotiate effectively. Highly recommended and will use for future real-estate deals.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Escondido, CA.

About three months ago I was just getting out of the military and making my transition back to civilian life. I was looking to buy a home and came across Ian Sells. From the moment I met him I felt very comfortable and he helped my find what is now a wonderful home in a great neighborhood. Ian answered all questions thoroughly and honestly. He fought to get us a great deal and spent countless hours showing us homes in the Escondido area. We appreciate everything Ian has done and we would highly recommend him to be your realtor for your next dream home. Ian has a way of making you feel safe and for first time home buyers and veterans he can direct you into making the best decision on a home for your family.

Bought a home in 2011.

Ian was simply the best. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I feel like I literally got everything I wanted in terms of the transaction and the whole process was a breeze.

He never rushes you, he genuinely tries to make sure that all your requirements are understood and considered in recommended houses. He is very personable and experienced. He even followed up with us after our condo purchase to ensure that we were happy. Without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
