Jeannie and Kelly’s Testimonials

“Jeannies experience combined with her talented staff made the selling of my condo easier than I expected. One thing I appreciated was how she kept me informed of what was or was not happening. She took me step by step through the process explaining each procedure making sure I understood what to expect. I highly recommend Jeannie to represent you when you want to sell to buy your home.” – P.W.

“I had a small house that was difficult to sell – over the years it had been on the market 4 different times with no luck. Jeannie sold it in almost no time. Buying or selling a house can be a very emotionally difficult transaction. Her remarkable integrity, warmth and honesty were so reassuring that everything ran smoothly to a mutually agreeable closing.” – L.V.

“Jeannie is truly a professional. She lets you make the choices and walks you through the process. She always works with the client, never forcing no matter how many properties that are looked at. In the closing she is on top of “everything”. She is the person I will go go to for any real estate transaction.” – S.A.

“I found Jeannie to be extremely knowledgeable and accommodating with the sale of my La Jolla condo. I was very pleased with the outstanding service she and her staff provided. My questions and concerns were addressed completely and quickly. She sold my place in six days and guided me through the process from A to Z. Thank you, Jeannie!” – N.T.

“We have worked with many real estate agents through the years, and can say without hesitation that Jeannie Gleeson is tops in her field. Jeannie and her support team helped us to accomplish a very difficult short sale purchase that allowed us to relocate to a wonderful property in La Jolla. The professionalism, expertise, tenacity, and dedication that Jeannie provided leading up to and during the purchase are unsurpassed. Jeannie’s continuing support after the business transaction was completed keeps reminding us how fortunate we are to have had Jeannie as our agent and to continue to have Jeannie as our friend.” – N.F. & J.G.

“Jeannie thank you for your help on selling our condo at Seahaus although my purchase of the condo did not work out the way I had hoped, it could have been much worse without your efforts to attain top dollar for our unit.

I will certainly recommend you to others and would not hesitate to give you a referral if ever asked to do so again, a big thank you to you and your staff!! Congratulations on a job very well done!!” – E.G.

“We have just relocated to San Diego, and Jeannie Gleeson is our relocation realtor. It has been such a pleasure working with Jeannie and her team – Todd and Elizabeth. In our opinion, Jeannie and her team are definitely the best realtor in San Diego, and one of the most highly awarded realtor nationwide. They have also been the best relocation help for us. Jeannie and Todd are extremely knowledgeable about the business and they know the heartbeat of the real estate market very well, but most importantly they are the most genuine, kind and professional people. Jeannie took a genuine interest in our welfare and made sure that we found our ideal home and settled well into San Diego. Elizabeth, the assistant, has also been a great help to us in all the administrative and escrow related work.

Relocating to a new country is never easy, but Jeannie is always willing to reach out to help, she has made our relocation chapter a wonderful one, and she continued to be a dear friend to us.

We are now happily settled into our new home in La Jolla and we cannot thank your team enough for your professional service and genuine effort in helping us found our home and relocate to San Diego.” – S.A. Relocation

“Jeannie was my realtor, but she has become my dearest friend. She not only took the time to help us find the perfect home, but she continued to help us after we were settled in our home. That is who Jeannie is – she will be there for you at all times. My husband made a comment a few weeks ago when we were out at a friends place that it was because of Jeannie that a number of us there had homes & were good friends. She connects people!” – C.W.

“The more you exchange with me professionally, the more impressed I am with your business acumen.” – T.A.

“She and her assistant were excellent. We made an offer on a short-sell property and it was a nightmare with paperwork and uncertain procedures. Jeannie and her assistant Elizabeth went out of their way to make sure things were done. They were professional and very knowledgeable. It was a joy to work with them.” – E.L.

“I could write an epic ode on how much Jeannie and Kelly Gleeson made our dream of home ownership come true, but there’s only so much space in a Yelp review. I’ll start with this, this dream team of realtors will hold you hand, open doors, work at all hours, and do everything they can and more to find you your perfect home. When my husband and I first thought we should prepare for home ownership, Kelly opened her Rolodex and recommended us to a great lender who made us feel knowledgeable and safe. When it came time to start looking, we found our home immediately and Jeannie and Kelly stayed up writing our offer until midnight. Once we were in escrow, they recommended the best home inspectors, explained all the documents we were signing, answered all our questions, and didn’t judge me for being a bit OCD and a very Type A person. They even helped us close escrow a day sooner so we could be in our home before we had to leave our apartment. Our first night in our home, Ella Fitzgerald’s version of “At Last” came on and we danced among our boxes and thought, none of this would have been possible without the dream team that we had along the way.” – Adriana L.

“Excellent realtor team who are honest, friendly, well versed in the San Diego and North County markets, and who take the time to really get to know the client. In addition, they have provided me some post-sale support on a few issues, which speaks to their commitment to client satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better team to work with to buy my home.” -Hatem A.

“Jeannie, you were the guidance and wisdom that was needed just at the time I needed it to sell my home. After our conversations, I put my trust in your experience and your personality, and before my home was even listed, you had it sold. I don’t know if anyone else could have made such a perfect deal for both myself and the buyer. You truly made a profound difference in my life.” -J.B.

“We had a great experience working with Jeannie to sell my mom’s property. She’s very professional and knowledgeable. We worked with another broker prior to Jeannie, and ended up listing it for 6 months and not selling it (we don’t live in California, which makes the selling process more difficult). However, we sold the property within a couple of weeks after working with Jeannie. And she made the process a lot easier for us. Highly recommend her!” -kimydeng

Nicole’s Testimonials

“Nicole came highly recommended. And she proved extremely helpful from day one. She was very patient with us, took time to understand our needs, didn’t tire of showing us around, and then moved quickly to negotiate the best terms to complete the purchase. She was always a step ahead. She thought of every detail and advised us about all aspects of buying a house. She is simply the best.” – S & J Adamo

“Nicole was attentive to our every need. She went above and beyond to provide excellent service and expertise. There was an issue with an inspection item and she brought in an a knowledgeable expert quickly to access the problem. She negotiated the best deal for us at the best terms.” – CP East

“Nicole DeWaele helped us purchase a home in Del Mar, CA in 2010. Her work with us was, in a word, exceptional. We currently reside in the Midwest, and in January 2010, decided to start looking for vacation homes around north San Diego county. Our initial thought was that we would look at real estate over the coming year and perhaps find something we liked to use as a vacation home that we could eventually relocate to. A friend of ours recommended the Gellens team for our real estate needs. I contacted Marty Gellens and sent her a list of our desires in a home. She was unavailable for the weekend that we were flying into town, so she assigned Nicole to help us put together a list of properties and take us on a tour of neighborhoods and showings. We are so very glad that we looked at homes with Nicole! Part way through the day of showings, after listening carefully to all of our comments and really hearing what we liked and disliked about each home, Nicole suggested that we look at a home that was not on our preplanned list. Her intuition on what we would love, after only knowing us a few hours, was spot on. We walked onto the property and fell in love. We didn’t want to leave. We had a million questions and Nicole knew all the answers—she made us feel so comfortable and informed, we quickly made an offer in a tough seller’s market. The closing was far from smooth sailing. The title company made a huge mistake, the escrow agent was miserable. If it hadn’t been for Nicole’s constant attention and help, we may well have walked away from the deal. Even after the closing, Nicole continued to help in ways that are on no real estate agent’s list of responsibilities. From putting us in contact with all the service providers for the home, to bringing in packages we shipped, to making sure we were properly greeted when we arrived for our first vacation to the house, she did not overlook a single detail. Our parents are now looking for a home in San Diego County, and of course, they are working with Nicole. They could not be more pleased! They fully agree with us that she is head and shoulders above any real estate agent we have ever used in the past. Whenever we hear of anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in Southern California, we will make sure they call Nicole first!” – D Grinshpun & J Singer

“Working with Nicole DeWaele Frieman made the process of selling our home as stress-free as it could possibly be. We were impressed every step of the way with Nicole’s outstanding attention to detail, knowledge, and commitment to making this transition the smoothest possible. From the outset, she provided optimistic yet realistic counsel for how to approach the sale of our condo. The amount of market research she conducted prior to us even signing a listing agreement was impressive. This was our first experience selling a home, but I don’t think I’d be mistaken in saying she went above and beyond in helping us present the ideal listing. It quickly became evident how advantageous it was for us to draw on that research: Within a day of officially listing, just hours after our first open house, we had an offer within 5% of our asking. Nicole was an expert negotiator in the countering process, and her vigilance paid off for us, both in reaching a final purchase agreement and also after we opened escrow, during the buyers’ inspections and appraisal. She kept up with other sales in our area and continued to work to secure backup offers. She made sure the buyers had an accurate representation of the home, even going over to make instructional videos for them! You can’t beat that peace of mind that your agent is looking out for the interests of everyone involved in the transaction, especially when you’ve already moved to a different city as we had done. I can’t imagine having had any better proxy representing us. She continued to push for us through the close of escrow, including following up with loan officers on the buyers’ behalf when they hit delays. Nicole gave 100% to seeing this deal through to a happy end. She was completely on top of all the paperwork, all the disclosures and inspections, all aspects of staging and preparing the condo for the new owners, even overseeing a fumigation scheduled by the HOA. She even forwarded any mail that the post office didn’t catch! I cannot imagine what more she could have done for us – but I’m pretty sure if I’d thought of something, she would have taken care of it with her characteristic smile and finesse. The bottom line: Nicole was stellar, and you would be making your own experience infinitely better by using her as your agent.” – M & J Susskind

“Nicole is an excellent realtor and we couldn’t have been happier with the whole first time buyer experience. She kept us calm and made the whole process extremely easy to go through. She was always putting us first though I knew she was busy with several other clients. We truly appreciated her dedication and responsiveness. I’d highly recommend Nicole to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.” – T Klingebiel

“Nicole was very professional in handling the complex process of finding the right house for my family. She organized multiple showings and was instrumental in analyzing the pros and cons. she masterfully handled the negotiations and closing.” – A & S Grinshpun
