Team reviews

Richard Elias sold our home in three days and we received top dollar in our market place! He is very knowledgeable and showed us everything as we went along. He is a fantastic negotiater! We felt very comfortable with Richard throughout the whole process. He kept us informed from the beginning through the end. He became more than an agent to us. Trust is something we all expect but not always get, but with Richard we got what we all expected, "Trust"! I highly recommend Richard Elias and his very professional team of experts in any and all of your real estate needs. The Schlusberg 's

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in El Cajon, CA.

The sale of our condo was processed in a very professional and speedy manner. Calls were returned promptly, a couple of items that could have delayed the sale were resolved by Dawn and the individuals involved with the escrow. Thank you again for processing the sale so quickly. Pat Bjorstrom.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Carmel Valley, San Diego, CA.

Richard and his team did an excellent job in helping us sell our home in Carmel Valley. Some of the potential buyers we encountered had some misunderstandings of the process and Richard and his team did a great job taking the time to explain items to the other side. Richard ultimately hooked us up with the right fit for our deal and it went very smoothly!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Northwest, Chula Vista, CA.

Richard impressed us as competent and informed from our first meeting. My wife and I were confident in his ability to broker our sale after he clearly outlined the strategy to market our home. Polite and professional, Richard walked us through the entire process allowing our input to shape the sale to our satisfaction. The realtor and associates also were a huge part of the stress-less experience. Thanks guys!

Sold a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Santee, CA.

Richard Elias and his team are amazing! We previously had a great experience with Richard, when he helped us buy our first home back in 2010. With a job offer out of state, we were ready to sell, and came right back to Richard again. He was very thorough in the process, providing detailed information about other homes in our area, while determining our asking price. Since we had to relocate quickly, Richard and his team did an excellent job staying in close communication while we were out of state, helping the sale process to go as smoothly as possible. He gave knowledgeable advice when reviewing the offers we received, guided us through the counter-offer process, and ultimately to a successful sale. Thank you, Richard!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Southwest, Chula Vista, CA.

Finding the words to express our feelings of appreciation for what Richard Elias has done for us are extremely difficult to find. After making the decision to sell our home we contacted Richard and he and his Associate Dawn Lee Schlieder came over to discuss our options with us. He has so much knowledge and came prepared with information regarding our home, recent sells in our area, fair market value just to name a few. He is so personable and easy to talk with. He honestly cared about US and what was best for us. Choosing Richard and his team was the smartest decision we could have made. Only a few days after meeting with Richard and Dawn our house was on the market. Everything was explained to us thoroughly. We were constantly updated with any developments via emails or calls. Our home sold in less than 2 months and it was a painless process. I would highly recommend Richard Elias and his team whether buying or selling a home. They are the BEST!!!!!

Sold a home in 2014 in Bostonia, El Cajon, CA 92021.

Hiring Richard Elias was the best decision my wife and I made! After a bad experience with other agents, Richard came in and worked hard to sell our home. He had a great marketing plan, used all the tools available via the Internet, communicated with us daily, and has a top-notch team working for him. Richard Elias is simply the BEST!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Linda Vista, San Diego, CA.

I can only say one thing about Mr. Elias...he is a "Real Estate Angel from God!" Not only did he out perform the competition but he over delivered by selling the home within ten days of market time! He also went above and beyond with the transaction keeping both sides at peace because our transaction almost went to the south! Thanks to the professionalism, knowledge, and savvy that Richard Elias brought to the table the deal closed on time and Both parties to the transaction were happy! Thank you Richard!:)

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $975K in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.

Richard was very creative in his use of special effects and new ideas in promoting the property. He was attentive to my personal desires on how to obtain a reasonable selling price. Although I feel that I should have sold the property for a higher price, the real estate market was soft and he tried everything in his repertoire to sell the house. I toiled with the idea of waiting until next year to obtain a better price, feeling that the market would be better, but in the end chose to sell the house and go on with life.
