I contacted Don to help me find my first home in a very hot market. The competition was fierce but Don made sure that we were often the first to view homes as soon as they hit the market and often times even before they were listed. Every home we saw he critiqued for me and told me things to look out for. I came away from the experience with tons of new knowledge, a great deal in a top neighborhood and a new friend. You can trust Don and he will make sure you get a good deal. I can't recommend him enough.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Oceanside, CA.

I highly recommend Don. He went above and beyond and was exactly what we needed. Don is very knowledgable and was great to work with. I now look at him as a friend, not just our realtor.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Carlsbad, CA.

I recently bought a townhome in Carlsbad near the La Costa resort. This was my first purchase. Don was recommended to me by a former roommate and I was very happy with him overall.

I found Don to have an excellent understanding of the North County real estate market. He had good information and commentary on every development and every area in Carlsbad and Oceanside.

Don was very interested in making sure I got a place that I liked and I would enjoy living in rather than just trying to make a quick sale. There were multiple properties where Don pointed out possible issues (e.g. questionable neighbors, road noise, bad location) that I would not have necessarily noticed or given significant consideration to. Don was a partner in helping me find the perfect place.

I am also very impressed at Don’s ability to find good deals in tight markets. Don specifically recommended I look that the property I ended up buying because he thought it was a very good deal. Before putting in my offer, I did a very extensive analysis on the property to make sure it was a good deal (I am a financial analyst by trade). His advice was spot on- my townhome had the lowest price per square foot by a significant margin as compared to anything in the immediate area. Don was able to find it and point it out to me.

Don was also very helpful during the escrow process. He was always a phone call away to provide any advice. He made sure my place was perfectly move in ready and even helped me power wash my garage floor after move in! Overall, he was a great resource for a first time home buyer and I would recommend him to anyone.

Bought a home in 2014 in Rancho Carlsbad Trailer Park, Carlsbad, CA 92010.

Don helped me find my lovely home...I was new to the neighborhood and he went over and above to help me. He did not hesitate to take me out to see homes no the weekends, responded to my calls and emails immediately. I can't say enough about Don Rushworth and his kindness and expertise.

Bought a home in 2002 in Rancho Calevero Mobile Home Park, Oceanside, CA 92056.

Don helped my wife and I buy two houses in Oceanside. Don has been an exceptional person and agent to work with. We both really appreciate his knowledge and expertise. He has always been a trusted source and helped guide us through the process. His knowledge of the home buying market is superb. We highly recommend DON as your agent.

Bought a home in 2009 in Rancho Calevero Mobile Home Park, Oceanside, CA 92056.

Don was recommended to me by my sister who he has helped to purchase multiple properties. I had just started working with another "Top Producer" agent as their business card said at the time and was not getting a good feeling regarding the relationship, so I gave Don a call and he was so helpful I could not imagine having gone though the process without him.

This was in 2008/2009 and in the early stages of the short sale watershed. My wife and I did massive amounts of research, but it was still so confusing. It seemed the banks, the lenders, and just about everybody else we spoke to were utterly dumbfounded as to what was REALLY going on, and had at most, maybe half of their information correct. Don with his wealth of experience in both real estate and lending helped us to maneuver the entire home buying process with relative ease. We were not an easy sale either, we were very selective and seemed to find problems with every property Don showed us. Never once did he seem to grow tired of us and our "pickiness."

After several months (and many free lunches) we finally found the (short sale) home we wanted. We ended up not getting the house and decided to take a break from aggressive home searching. We we're exhausted, I could only imagine how Don must have felt dealing with a pair like us, but no, not a drop of frustration in the man's demeanor, he honestly seemed to be enjoying all of it. I swear he became a real estate agent just to make new friends. And that he certainly did by the end of it.

It was about 9 months later when an identical model home on the same street became available for short sale. The listing was posted on a weekday at 9am, we we found out by 10am, I left work to meet my wife and Don at the property and by noon we had a formal offer submitted. Turns out there were a total of 9 bids by the end of that same day and even though ours was not even the highest, we got it! Everything happened so fast and we didn't have time to go every minute detail (our decision) we just put our complete faith in Don and he didn't disappoint. I can say with complete honesty that we would not be in this home we love, without Don's invaluable assistance.

Bought a Single Family home in 2002 for approximately $425K in Carlsbad, CA.

Best negotiator around! Don got us our new home in high-demand neighborhood during the height of the market for $30k less than the asking price. My husband and I were truly impressed.

Sold a home in 2014 in Farr, Carlsbad, CA 92008.

Don is an excellent agent because of his ability to see what up grades were the most beneficial and cost effective to the sale our home. He also was instrumental in the ar-rangement of the furniture and décor, adding to the enhancement of the interior. In dealing with the buying agent and clients he was able to bring forth maximum price for us. In my opinion not only does he understand the real estate but is up to date in local, national and international banking markets which I believe gives him an advantage in this current market.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Carlsbad, CA.

Donald Rushworth is a trustworthy, hardworking individual. My experience with him was very satisfying. He took his time explaining the different parts and problems I would need to know for the house I was interested in and used his own personal time to show me around the neighborhood and help me do some home improvement work. I am very happy with the house that I've bought and I would definitely recommended him to my friends and coworkers.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Vista, CA.

Donald Rushworth is the greatest! After dealing with and eventually leaving other realtors because of poor communication it was a breath of fresh air to work with Don. He listened to what we where looking for and found us the perfect house with in the budget that we set. He fought for us during the negotiation process, getting us a termite fumigation as well as a brand new central heater and air conditioner, which we really appreciate now that it is heating up.

Don made us feel like part of his family, checking in to make sure we were doing ok and as first time home buyers that made us feel at ease with the whole situation. He patiently walk us through all the documents boiling down the legalese into easy to understand language and made sure we understood every step that was happening.

Mr Rushworth still contacts us to this day to chat and catch up. You can tell he genuinely cares about the people he is working hard for and I am proud to call him both my realtor and my friend.

You will not find a better realtor than Donal Rushworth.
