Ratings & Reviews

I recommend Lance very highly. My wife and I were looking for our dream home for over 2 years. Before Lance, we tried 2 other agents and never found a house we wanted. With Lance assisting us, we found several houses we liked. We made offers on 2 homes that didn't work out. Lance was very patient and provided invaluable information and advice during the bid and counter process. When we found our beautiful historic home in Point Loma, Lance provided tons of information to help us develop our initial offer. After the seller's counter, Lance led us through the negotiation, inspections and escrow. Lance has many great local contacts for every trade, many of whom we still use today. We are extremely pleased with our new home and I am sure it would not have happened without Lance

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $500K in Lakeside, CA.

My wife and I worked with Lance for more than 6 months to find the perfect house. He was open to going with us to look at houses nearly every weekend in wide ranging areas of San Diego from Point Loma to Ramona. He was always very responsive and well prepared.

He gave excellent advice about house prices sharing what he thought were good and not-so-good prices and the reasons why. I really appreciated his honesty which in some cases was not in his own best interest (e.g. he would get a higher commission if a house sold for more but he would still advise us to offer less because he felt the asking price was too high).

After we purchased the house Lance was still available to answer any questions we had. We wanted to rent our old house and he provided lots of great advice in this area as well, even coming over to our old house to help us identify what needed to be fixed up to help rent the place. He truly went beyond what was expected!

I would recommend Lance to anyone who is looking to buy a house. His low pressure, friendly, professional approach more than you could hope for.

Bought a home in 2011.

Lance was very professional with seasoned skills. He negotiated a better price than expected and followed the sale to the end with any minor details that came up. He also had great recommendations for contractors to help us fix up the house.

Sold a Condo home in 2010 for approximately $500K in Little Italy, San Diego, CA.

I used Lance to buy a new home and sell my existing home. Lance was very patient and never pushed while having a great knowledge of San Diego and the real estate market. Lance is not out to make a commission, but is really out for you to find the home of your dreams.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 for approximately $875K in University City, San Diego, CA.

My wife and I were shopping 2 1/2 years and with zero success. We started working with Lance and were both very impressed by his knowledge of the market as well as the valuation knowledge for homes in our area. For example, in our case we were extending our search along the north and east side of the city. Then Lance took our top 5 homes and broke them down in total costs vs benefits examining every factor ie. HOA, Property and Mello Roos taxes, distance, shopping. We found our dream home and when it came time to update the home to make it ours Lance's engineering background kicked in and he advised us on the best painter and people for the job at the best price along with the best places to get materials. We highly recommend Lance to anyone looking to buy or sell property. Thanks for all of your help Lance.
