Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Otay Ranch, Chula Vista, CA.
We contacted Jorge Verdugo from City Consulting group about a year ago in February 2014 when we first visited the Chula Vista area considering moving here at some point. We immediatelly had a good feeling about him and liked the houses he showed us. When we finally were ready to purchase a home in January 2015, we again turned to Jorge. He remembered us and our preferences and started showing us homes that matched our search. He gave us advice about the area, explained HOAs and Mello Roos, and soon we found a house we really liked. Jorge and his team, particularly Mayra, guided us through the paperwork, promptly responded to all doubts and questions we had and we were able to close Escrow without any setbacks or problems. It all went amazingly smoothly and easily, thanks to the capable people at City Consulting Group. Even now, after we moved into our house, whenever a questions comes up I don't hesitate to turn to Jorge or Mayra and I always receive a solution quickly.
We are thankful and consider ourselves lucky that we found a company that has such high quality standards!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Eastlake Greens, Chula Vista, CA.
Don’t let their age fool you!! Although City Consulting Group is a young team, they are truly a team of experts – from their savvy marketing and promotion web-based strategies to their professional photography to their knack at negotiating to helping you prepare your home for sale to tax issues one must consider – and the list goes on and on. Throughout the entire process, it was truly a delight to work with the real estate agents from City Consulting Group, especially Jorge Castellon, my favorite realtor estate agent for life! The weekly marketing results and all of legal documents pertaining to the sale of my home where set up so that I could electronically read in the comfort of my home, at my own time and sign electronically. As a new mom, with a new born, I value this convenience tremendously!!! My real estate agent, facilitated the process of prepping my house by pointing me to contractors that upgraded my home making it so beautiful while conducting quality craftsmanship – no mickey mouse jobs, all within my budget. After accepting an offer, my real estate agent, negotiated an additional $10k!!! Because I felt that my real estate agent was looking out for me and making it happen even with a fluctuating market, I felt in good hands and will definitely trust the City Consulting Group to handle the sale of my second property and have them find my dream home that will suit the needs of my new growing family.
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Marina, San Diego, CA.
Jorge and his team helped my family sell our downtown condo. We don't think we could find anyone better. They knew exactly how the market was and made plan based on our needs. We are very happy with their service and would definitely come back in the future.
Bought a home in 2014 in Midway District, San Diego, CA 92101.
After meeting Jorge C, I could tell right away that he was very knowledgeable in regards to the Downtown San Diego Real Estate market. The first thing we did was sit down in his office and take a look at what was available online. That was when I was able to meet the other realtors and customer service people in his office who were very nice and professional.
I told him what my needs were and he listened and gave me his best recommendations for what condos and buildings would be best for me. One of the things that I learned was that certain buildings do not qualify for VA loans. So that saved us a lot of time because we eliminated all the non-VA buildings right away and were able to focus on the condos I could actually buy. At first he referred me a loan officer who actually didn't work out for me. So he recommended me to another loan guy who I hit it off with.
Jorge was happy to show me around to the different condo buildings so that I could become familiar with the area and get a good feel for the market. I was surprised because other realtors who I have worked with in the past seemed to always be in a hurry to close a sale.
After looking at about 15-20 places we were able to find a great place which I love right in the heart of the East Village. The process was easy because everybody at City Consulting Group is a PRO! If you are looking for a realtor, I would definitely recommend City Consulting Group!
Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $2.325M in Marina, San Diego, CA.
“As the San Diego Development Manager of Pinnacle International, our company’s CEO & President, who resides in Vancouver, asked me to find him new representation for his downtown San Diego condo that had been sitting on the market for over a year. City Consulting Group was highly recommended by an associate of mine, and on our first meeting, Jorge Verdugo gave us his detailed perspective on why it had not sold. My employer was very impressed with Jorge’s knowledge and experience and felt confident listing with his team. After making the recommended improvements to the unit that Jorge thought would add value and new appeal, City Consulting Group pushed forward an aggressive marketing campaign. The property received widespread exposure and in just 6 weeks we received an offer $200,000 higher than the offer we received with the previous listing agent. I highly recommend City Consulting Group for maximizing the value of any downtown San Diego condo.”

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in La Mesa, CA.
Jorge and the City Consulting Group team helped me buy my first home earlier this year. Even though my credit was not the greatest, they were able to guide me through the process and get me a great home at a good price. I was really happy with the service that everybody at "CCG" provided. They were always available and very responsive. The transaction coordinator Mayra was very helpful when it came to the paperwork and all of the things needed to complete the purchase. I would strongly recommend City Consulting Group for anybody looking for a professional and knowledgeable company to help them buy or sell a home.
Found a tenant for a Townhouse home in East Village, San Diego, CA.
City Consulting Group helped me in finding a tenant for my loft in downtown. They were very professional, responsive and caring ! Their service was honest and real. As I look for selling my place in a few years, I will certainly use their services.
Kea and Jorge provided options with advertising my place, and selecting the tenant; they were proactive and kept me informed at all times. KUDOS
Bought a home in 2014 in Midway District, San Diego, CA 92101.
I just purchased a unit at the Alta in San Diego after looking at properties for three years. I am also an experience real estate owner/investor in Seattle.
Jorge was terrific! His honesty and forthrightness was especially appreciated in analyzing my potential purchase. He lives in the Alta, and that was particularly helpful since that building was my first choice in downtown San Diego.
