Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Vista, CA.
If you are lucky enough to have Ernie as your agent, you can relax and enjoy the ride. He is familiar with the North San Diego County area and showed us homes in all the different cities in which we showed an interest and some that we had not considered. He pointed out the good and problems in all the homes we visited and made himself available whenever we had questions or concerns. After we entered escrow, he took care of many details that would normally have required our presence but, because we were from out of town, he took care of things, met repairmen, saved us endless trips back and forth. I can honestly say, Ernie "had our backs" and looked out for our interests. His advice was never pushy, always well thought out and he explained all the legal ins and outs of the purchase process so that we could understand. Any exchange with Ernie was a positive experience. We look forward to recommending him to anyone and everyone we know who is in the market for a new home in the beautiful North San Diego County area. Selecting Ernie MacManus as your agent will be one of the best decisions you can make if you are thinking of relocating.

Ernie is highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and Patient. He took the time to explain every step in detail since I was a first time home buyer. He was always responsive and clear in his communication. He went above and beyond his duties and I will definitely refer him to friends and family !
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Encinitas, CA.
We sold our home and purchased another with the help of Ernie MacManus. This man is an expert at his job; not only did he make us feel at home during the whole process, he went out of his way to be extremely responsive to our every need, whether it was a phone call, research, negotiations, didn't matter. Ernie will make your purchase/sale easy and fun, and at no time will you wonder what is next, what you should do, or if you're forgetting anything because he's got your back. We're so excited to have met this man and done the biggest transaction of our life with him in the drivers seat.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Oceanside, CA.
Ernie was the absolute greatest!! We were first time home buyers and didn't quite know what to expect for the entire process.
We loved that Ernie wasn't afraid to point out the positive AND the negative aspects of each house we saw. He knew a lot about what to look for in regards to poor construction and possible maintenance issues. We really felt like he had a genuine interest in finding the perfect home for us.
Once Ernie did find us our dream home, he was able to build a rapport with the selling agent, which we believe really helped us get the house at the right price!
Buying a home can be a very stressful time, but with Ernie on our team it made the process so much easier from start to finish. Thanks Ernie
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Encinitas, CA.
Ernie has been the real estate agent for my family for the past couple years and I have never met someone so honest, reliable, and knowledgable. He not only knows exactly what he's talking about, but he also provides good insight and honest opinion. He's not looking for a quick sale and to close a property, he really takes time to be sure the house bought by the buyer will be the home they will love. I would and have recommended Ernie to many of my friends and I will continue to do so as I feel he is the best man for the job.
Ernie did an amazing job selling our house. He was very efficient in making sure we had everything in line before the listing date. We had four offers in only a few days on the market and Ernie was great at negotiating to get us a great selling price. We sold for much higher than I could ever have anticipated.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Carlsbad, CA.
Very professional. Answered all my questions promptly. Was very responsive to all my needs. House was sold professionally and right on time. I felt comfortable with his efforts and attending to all my needs.
I tend to get overwhelmed by tasks that need a detail oriented mind, like home-buying for example. I needed someone who could guide me at every step of the way and also check on me constantly. Ernie did an excellent job in these two areas. Ernie was very prompt at guiding me through the procedure. Ernie followed up with me promptly and gave me all the help I needed in each stage of home buying. I highly recommend Ernie to anyone, whether a first time home-buyer or an experienced one.
Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $575K in Carlsbad, CA.
My husband and i have bought 5 homes in the last 9 years and using Ernie this last time made all the rest look amateur. He was on point in every way, responsive, and consultative. We enthusiastically recommend him to anyone who really wants the service necessary in the highly competitive SoCal market. We plan to use The Macmanus Group again in the near future and feel fortunate that we will have Ernie's support from day 1 of the process.

From our first meeting to the sale of our home through the purchase of our new home, Ernie exceeded our expectations in every way. When we first met with Ernie, we were not even sure we were going to put our house on the market. Ernie came to us prepared with tons of research and insight that helped make our decision easy without making us feel pressured to rush into anything. He was extremely patient as we looked at house after house and numerous neighborhoods trying to figure our what was right for us. Throughout the sale of our home and search for our new one, Ernie was incredibly responsive and so helpful! He was so easy to work with and even more important we felt that he really cared about our best interests. We were able to sell our home, find a new home that met all our needs in a great neighborhood, and achieve all our goals that we initially set. We would highly recommend Ernie and have no doubt that we will be working with him again someday. We could not have asked for a better experience overall!
