Team reviews

I was looking for a realtor with true expertise, and Kurt Wannebo met all of the requirements. We started with an interview in my home and he explained the processes and procedures that I would encounter. After signing the agreement, Kurt began to fulfill all of his promises. He helped me by recommending correction of several issues with respect to my home. He also assigned an extremely competent real estate agent, Nicole. He executed a sales strategy which resulted in multiple bids, and as a result, I got the full appraised value for my home. In addition, he handled several critical issues with respect to the buyers which resulted in my saving approximately $15,000.00. In my opinion, he is the most competent broker I have ever worked with and I would recommend him to anyone. Gail White

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.425M in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

When we decided to sell our Carmel Valley home earlier this year, we called Kurt Wannebo. Kurt's professionalism, integrity, industry expertise, and market knowledge immediately set him apart from all other real estate brokers. We chose SDREI to represent us because Kurt, and his team, sell more homes annually in San Diego than any other agents. Their consistent track record of selling hundreds of homes each year was very convincing. Kurt, Tom Wilson (who served as our buying agent for our new property), John LaMatrey (who represented the buyers) and Felicia Jerbasi did an outstanding job guiding and advising us throughout the transactions. They were proactive, extremely responsive, and deliberate in their approach. They created an effective marketing plan, pricing strategy, coordinated staging of the property, conducted a mega open house, private showings and successfully sold our house on a timely basis for top dollar. Real estate transactions can become extremely complicated. The client centric team at SDREAI simplified the process enormously. We cannot give a higher recommendation than to retain SDREAI for your next real estate sale or purchase. Dr. & Mrs. Elliott Shapiro

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $925K in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

We would like to share our most productive and delightful experience of working with Kurt, personally, and his team, specifically Felicia and Tom! This team successfully and masterfully led us all the way thru a very elaborate and uneasy project - selling our home in Carmel Valley followed by purchasing a smaller home in the same area. An exquisite professionalism, detailed understanding of the market, obvious emphasis on understanding and meeting our demands were primary but not the only characteristics of the team that we have observed in action and the key success factors. We want to specifically praise the professional skills, courtesy and amazing patience of Tom Wilson who helped us to find and actually purchase our new dream home. We recognize that we were difficult clients! We started our house hunting with very naive and unrealistic expectations, we kept changing our mind on a weekly basis, went thru multiple showings until we found what we really wanted. Tom's attitude, professional guidance, polite education and, when it came to action, the ability to act swiftly and decisively were just incredible and a true blessing for us! We strongly recommend this team - you won't regret the choice!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $650K in Bonsall, CA.
Primary point of contact: Tom Wilson

My wife and I had Tom Wilson assisting us in our home search. He did an excellent job helping us not only find the perfect home but made the process easy. Tom will find you a great house and then make it happen. He has the negotiation skills you want in a realtor. He is also surrounded by an excellent team and they are all there to help with the smooth transition into a new home. His recommendation to talk to Nick Richardson about financing made the process that much easier. Nick was able to meet with us once and get all of the paperwork done correctly the first time. Great job team!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.15M in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

I recently hired Kurt to represent me for the transaction of selling my Carmel Valley home. I hired him based off him listing two other homes on my street over the past year that not only sold quickly but came with a great referral from the sellers. I was impressed with his thorough assessment of my property and the subsequent team of contractors he referred to prepare my home for sale. The pre-sale experience Kurt provided allowed me to invest in a few areas that helped maximize the value of my sale price. Kurt also invested time and expense to get my home market ready and provided professional marketing materials that stood out to myself and potential buyers. Kurt is business minded with a personal touch. During key points in the sales process his reputation in the community helped tie ends together quickly. Even after the transaction was complete, there is an assurance of accountabiliy should any ongoing needs arise. I would refer him to anyone in the north county coastal area looking for sales representation.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $325K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.
Primary point of contact: John La Mattery

It has been only a very good experience that we have contacted John to represent us in purchasing the condo. John is a very confident real estate broker and the transaction went very smoothly. The condo seller was a little bit difficult thus John's real estate skills were absolutely needed and essential. I highly recommend using his services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $1.275M in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

Selling a house is a stressful process, especially when the house has been on the market with no offers. I connected with Kurt Wannebo and Nicole Furlong because they sold my best friend and neighbor’s house in 2014. They are by far the best in Carmel Valley. Kurt and Nicole are the definition of awesome! These two are everything and more than I could ask for. They are professional, efficient, and most importantly knowledgeable. I can’t say enough good things about them and how truly appreciative of them I am. In addition to their expertise in the Carmel Valley region and real estate business, Kurt is a smart negotiator, an attribute that has been refined through the number of transactions he’s been a part of on both the buying and selling end. His advice during this negotiation phase was invaluable and after we talked, he always made me feel better about whatever decision I was about to make. Nicole is exceptional. She understands her clients. She also managed to help me to buy my new home at the price I wanted. She was there every step of the process from finding a lender and a home inspector, to repair man and cleaning crew. Nicole was extremely responsive to my questions. I never had to wait more than 30 minutes for a return phone call or an email even when she was out of country on personal leave. There were many times I thought I wouldn’t be able to get my dream home and move in on time, but Nicole pulled it through. I highly recommend San Diego Real Estate and Investments to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in San Diego, CA.
Primary point of contact: Nicholas Iannitti

Nicholas Iannitti was our agent. He was very thorough during our first meeting and all through the process. He is highly knowledgeable and very honest. Once the offer was approved, we didn't have to do much, he took care of everything!! Another great quality in him is his patience. He wouldn't push you to finalize until you are 100% satisfied. Overall, we were very happy with his service and would definitely reach out to him for our next real estate transactions. I would also highly recommend him to everyone that I know or meet that is looking to buy or sell a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $175K in College West, San Diego, CA.
Primary point of contact: Nicolas Iannitti

I gave Nicholas Iannitti a nearly impossible task of getting me, a first time homebuyer, completely moved in to a condo in less than 60 days. And he knocked it out of the park!!! The team at SDREAI was always quick to respond and great at keeping the ball rolling. Nicholas had great recommendations on home inspectors, electricians, and even helped me find the right mortgage provider. I personally appreciated his no nonsense approach to real estate, I was able to speak freely with him as he was with me. I believe that was what got me moved in within those 60 days. I would recommend SDREAI to anyone for their customer service and resources! Less

Bought a home in 2015 in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA 92126.
Primary point of contact: Daniel Lecuna

I have worked with Daniel Lecuna and the rest of the Kurt's team since 2012. Since then we completed three short sales - I bought a condo, a townhouse and most recently as house in Mira Mesa. Daniel knows all the ins and outs of dealing with short sale process, and have saved at least two transactions from going off rails. He always stays on top of things no matter how complicated they get. After going through this process with him three times, trust me, it gets hairy at times. Nevertheless he manages to close the gaps and use his extensive resources to find a solution to everything. If you are buying you don't pay agent fees, so may as well go with the best. I'm 100% confident in Daniel's ability to get things done and will absolutely work with him again as soon as the opportunity presents itself.
