Bought a Condo home in 2011 in Marina, San Diego, CA.
By chance I found Bruce Barnes on the internet. I am glad I did. I am now looking for a home in the Hillcrest or Mission Hills area. He has never rushed me into thinking I have to buy this minute. I want this buy to be my last buy and I want it to be right. Bruce has taught me to be selective in the homes I see. Bruce is very knowledgeable about real estate and I have come to trust his judgement. He really comes across as not just wanting a commission. And speaking of commissions, when I do close on my Purchase Bruce is giving me part of his commission as a credit through escrow. That is a welcome gift. I feel very comfortable knowing Bruce has years of experience.
Sold a Condo home in 2011 in La Jolla, La Jolla, CA.
My wife and I were referred to Bruce Barnes about 3 months ago by a good friend. We have been looking for a home in several areas of San Diego City, but mainly on the coast. I found out later that Bruce is a native of San Diego, a long time Broker and it is evident he is comfortable in almost any area. Bruce has kept us well informed on daily basis of homes coming on the market that meet our requirements. He is very knowledgeable about real estate and the process. It has been a while since we have purchased a home and things have really changed. There is a lot more to know and a lot more to avoid. To our surprise Bruce also offers up to 1% of the purchase price back to us. This amount is from his commission.
As a newbie to the home buying experience, Bruce was tremendously helpful in guiding me through the process. He was always available for me and focused on finding me a house I loved rather than making a quick commission. When it comes to writing offers, his advise can help you write an offer that gets noticed which is a huge advantage when there are multiple people bidding on your dream house. And he gives his customers up to 1% cash back at closing! I can't say enough good things about him.
