Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.6M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
When it came to selling our house, we learned that whom you choose as your agent really does matter. Our previous agent fumbled seven written offers on our house. Then we hired Gregg Whitney. He is a take-charge guy. He got the job done promptly. He was especially good--and especially tough--in negotiations with the buyers' representative. I highly recommend him as a seller's agent.

I have worked with Gregg and his staff, office manager Mary in particular, on several real estate transactions. That statement says a great deal, since if I had not been well impressed with the performance of his organization the first time, I would never have gone back to them for subsequent needs. On my latest transaction, selling a personal residence, everything was accomplished in an efficient and effective manner. Although there were processing anomalies encountered, Gregg and Mary handled them seamlessly and successfully obtained close of escrow in record time.
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $775K in La Mesa, CA.
I cannot say enough great things about Gregg Whitney. He has guided us through two real estate transactions...the most recent one our house in La Mesa that he sold and closed in 14 days! He is a knowledgeable and highly experienced realtor who has extensive contacts with lenders, other realtors, title companies, etc. which proves to be very helpful. He and his team are extremely organized and they will work their magic at all levels to ensure that every aspect in the sale runs smoothly. He is also a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Gregg Whitney!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.35M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
Greg Whitney and his team are a pleasure to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable and work very efficiently. Our purchase was a complex short sale and Greg proved to be an expert and closed the deal.

Thank you Jeff! It is always a pleasure to work with you

I have never written a review for a service or product but felt compelled to endorse Gregg. He, along with Mary, truly provided us with exemplary service with regards to both our purchase of a property in La Jolla, and selling of our previous house in Mount Helix.
I am very critical of most real estate professionals (being politically correct); however, Gregg does not fit the mold by any means. He is a pleasure to work with, immediately responsive, a strong and creative negotiator, understands the market and has excellent business acumen – Everything you would expect from any agent. What sets him apart (other than being good), is he truly went the beyond just the deal and did whatever was needed during or after our close to facilitate our move. In our case this has included a number of items, but primarily related to remodeling and scheduling repairs during the purchase process.
Currently we are doing a large remodel of new house. In meeting with our general contractor, he asked “Why is your real estate agent involved still at this point? My response and knowing what he was asking indirectly: “He is truly one of a kind. He is a good guy. Our deal is closed, but he is still helping us, and with absolutely no financial interest”.
There is value and added value working with Gregg. I strongly recommend engaging him for any real estate transaction.
Furthermore, I read all of the other reviews he received on Zillow, noting he only received 5-star ratings. Normally seeing something like this I would question their validity; however, I believe each was honest and reflective of our experience with Gregg,
If I can provide any additional information, please reach out to Gregg’s office for my contact information.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $1.2M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
While every real estate agent does essentially the same thing--help you buy|sell a property--the critical differentiating factor is HOW they do it. From this perspective, Gregg and his team are at best you will find. From identifying the right properties to overcoming significant hurdles in the process, he has the expertise and drive to make it happen in the best way possible. And I added a challenge myself, being from the Midwest while looking for the best property in the La Jolla/San Diego area. Even after the sale, when other brokers shift their focus onto new business generation, Gregg and his team continued to deliver service and support. Get ready to have your expectations exceeded.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.025M in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
We used Gregg and his team when we decided to move to La Jolla, after being in Seattle for over 20 years. We knew a little about the area, but we know almost nothing about the La Jolla housing market, schools, and neighborhoods. Attempting a transition this big, while still maintaining a work life and balance for our kids, was daunting. Gregg worked seamlessly with us and navigated us through the process while 1500 miles away. I would say that we are not "easy to please" and had a pretty tough list of criteria that was difficult to source. He not only found us our new home, but was stellar through the negotiating process. He was available, constantly on site when we could not be, and relentless is managing every detail. All of this would have easily warranted a 5 star rating, but I would give him 6 stars if I could. Because, after our home closed, Gregg did not just shake our hand and walk away. Gregg and his team continued to be involved and supportive until we could finally put our feet up in our new home. I would recommend Gregg to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property. A true professional.
Gregg has been absolutely fantastic. I highly recommend contacting him if you have any questions about real estate in the San Diego, CA area. He took the time to show us multiple properties that highlighted the range of options available in our target price zone. Very professional, with no pressure to settle for anything less than the best value available.

I would highly recommend Gregg and his excellent staff and plan on using for all of my future real estate needs. Gregg represented me for the sale of my house a few months ago and I think he did an outstanding job. He negotiated an excellent price on my behalf and he and he and his staff made the entire process go very smoothly. I basically had to do nothing except sign some paperwork. I couldn't have been happier.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $925K in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
Gregg Whitney listed and ultimately sold my property in Birdrock. I was handling the sale remotely from my new home out-of-state so needed an agent that was willing to handle everything from coordinating with landscapers / contractors, logistics with tenant moving out, and overseeing all elements of having the house prepared for sale. Gregg and his excellent team did this flawlessly from the big picture matters to details like receipts for the donation of furniture no longer needed.
As it relates to knowledge of the la jolla market, negotiating with buyers, and handling the sale of the property, Gregg exceeded all my expectations and was a pleasure to work with. I would give Gregg the highest recommendation possible for someone seeking a listing agent for their La Jolla property.
