Best Agent Ever

Jeff Kane is an excellent real estate agent. He went above and beyond at every opportunity. Our situation was a delicate one. My mom decided to sell her large home after my dad passed away. In addition to the emotional component of selling a home she shared with my dad, my mom did not have any experience with contracts, inspections, e-mail, etc. Jeff was incredibly patient and always had her best interest at heart. He invested countless hours holding open houses, finding contractors for repair work, meeting with contractors, reviewing documents with my mom and many, many, many other tasks too numerous to list in this short review . Jeff fought to sell my mom’s home for top dollar in a difficult market. Jeff’s associate Nick was also very helpful and accessible. We will use Jeff for all future real estate needs.

Relocated to San Diego

I recently relocated to San Diego from Los Angeles after accepting a new job. I was interested in purchasing a home; however, my knowledge of the San Diego real estate market was limited. I inquired with some of my colleagues and they suggested that I contact Jeff Kane at the Coldwell Banker office in Del Mar. After meeting with Jeff, he immediately began familiarizing me with the local market. He compiled a detailed analysis of the market and made it very easy for me to understand the landscape. As a result of their thorough analysis, I was able to make some very informed decisions before making such a significant investment. In addition to being very experienced in the San Diego real estate market, I also found Jeff to be highly competent, knowledgeable and a caring professional. I immediately felt very comfortable with him during our very first meeting and soon knew that I was in good hands. I was very impressed with his genuine interest in getting to know me on a personal level as opposed to simply trying to make a sale. He was very thorough in understanding my needs and criteria, and as a result, were able to assist me in finding a beautiful home in Carmel Valley that continues to appreciate in value. Finding a home in a new area can be a highly stressful and trying process; however, Jeff helped to make it an enjoyable one. Not only was I successful in finding a beautiful home, I also was able to establish a new friendship with Jeff that continues to this day. Michael Phillips

Thanks a Million!!

 This was my first home buying experience and I didn’t have a concrete idea of what I was looking for, neither did I know much about the whole process of purchasing a house. Jeff made me feel more confident even in our very first meeting. He patiently walked me through the process and assured me that I would have their full support to the end. Almost a week after our first meeting,  I started looking at properties. Little by little I started getting a sense of what I was looking for and where. Despite knowing that the real estate market was essentially a Seller’s market”, I never felt any pressure  to make a hasty decision. On the contrary, during the whole process, from start to finish (close of escrow) I felt that Jeff was there for me. He returned my calls, texts, and email even on Sundays and made sure I remained optimistic. It finally paid off and I found the house I had been looking for all along. I checked out the property from outside one day before the open house and let Jeff know that I liked it very much. So when I met  at the open house,  the offer was ready to go! To cut a long story short, I ended buying the exact same property in spite of the fact that there were several other competing offers. Later on the listing agent said that one of the reasons they accepted my offer was my agents easy going attitude and personality and I completely agree with him. Thanks to Jeff’s hard work, patience, persistence, and experience I own a beautiful house in my favorite neighborhood in San Diego. I don’t want to make this too long so no one bothers reading it, but I couldn’t have asked for better people to work with. I am very happy with how this journey came to an end and I wouldn’t hesitate to introduce family/fiends to him. Thanks again and best of luck to you.

Thanks again for your help!

Dear Jeff,
My wife and I would like to sincerely thank you for all your real estate advice. During the past five years you have helped us purchase four commercial and residential properties in the Lomas Santa Fe area and Rancho Santa Fe.  Due to your excellent advice and direction we have saved a great deal of money that allowed us to fully pay for our son's college tuition.
My wife recently reminded me that during our negotiations you called us daily to update us on the progress of our transaction. As President of Lomas Santa Fe, you could have easily had one of your employees call us, but you always did that yourself. That has always impressed us. Your care about your clients is a trait not often found today in many real estate professionals.
We sincerely thank you for your help and we will always recommend you to all our friends.
Sincerely,
John and Anita Walker
Rancho Santa Fe

Thank you so much!

My husband contacted Jeff in March 2013. We were on a time constraint and a budget. The
market was highly competitive, and to make things even more complicated, I was on deployment.
Jeff spent almost every weekend and many week nights with my husband and
kids showing homes while trying to keep me in the loop via email. During that time Jeff probably put more miles on his car and used more gas then his commission returned. Jeff was always supportive and thorough. He consistently went over and above to make sure that our offer was considered and always treated us like we were his top priority. His dedication and commitment to finding the best possible home for us made us feel comfortable in a time when ease of mind was not easily achieved! We ended up finding not just a house, but a home. A home within our budget and in the school district we wanted. It doesn’t stop there. Jeff has kept in contact to make sure that the move in went well and that we are happy with our home.

Jeff's professionalism, persistence and honest, genuine good nature made us feel like we
were working with a friend and not just a realtor.
 
Thank you for everything!

Great rental advice - Thanks!

We recently moved to our new home in Del Mar and decided to rent out our old home also located in Del Mar. When we needed to find a high quality tenant for our home, Jeff Kane provided top notch expert advice and quickly found us an outstanding tenant. We were completely pleased with Jeff's professionalism, honesty and the outstanding results he achieved.  We would very highly recommend Jeff without any hesitation.

Outstanding Job !

Jeff Kane was of great assistance to my husband and myself this last year.  In addition to helping us find our dream home he managed to sell three of our other properties in a down market. 
He was always available and creative in his marketing.  His experience and skills made the difference in turning offers into sales. We would highly recommend Jeff to anyone interested in purchasing or selling their home.

Feeling Like I Stole Home!

I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your overwhelming support and assistance in helping me purchase my first home.  In addition to all the time you took helping me through the home buying  process, which included long weekends and more than several weekdays looking at houses usually given to you by myself with very short notice, there was a great mental support that kept me looking past the frustrating moments. 
The process took a bit longer than I expected, but no matter what, there was a continued support, encouragement and willingness to always go the extra mile.  I never felt pressured to act too quickly.  Through my home buying experience the market was very unpredictable and changed rapidly.  In the end I got exactly what I was looking for, and your constant evaluation and knowledge of the market paid off.  Having someone like yourself that understood this, and was always keeping me up to date was very rewarding and a constant reminder that you looked out for my interests.  I would definitely recommend you to anyone I know that is looking for a home.  Thanks again!

A great job! Thanks!!

"I had a problem. It was November and I need two apartment buildings that I have owned for more than 20 years sold before December 31st or face major tax increases. I asked several friends who the best broker in San Diego was to sell my units and both recommended Jeff Kane. When I interviewed Jeff, he said that he had a marketing plan to make it happen, and he did!

Along with getting my asking price, his attention to detail and always being there, I couldn't ask for a better agent. He sold my properties within one month and with absolutely no problems. He is a true professional. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is seriously interested in selling their property and selling it fast. Thank you, Jeff.

Bought and Sold Two Homes

As a first time home seller and buyer I had many questions and concerns. I count myself as extremely fortunate in my choice of Jeff Kane as my Realtor.

Jeff guided me through the process of selling and buying providing me with an education and positive results in both transactions.

Jeff's listening skills, intuitive understanding of my needs, industry knowledge, diligence in research and negotiating skills are stellar. I would proudly work with him again and recommend him to anyone seeking the services he provides so very well.

Amazing Job

I've known Jeff Kane since 1973 as we graduated from San Diego State University in 1974. Jeff has always been a great friend and trusted advisor on professional matters in regards to real estate and project and property management. In 2003, I briefly managed some apartment units (22) that Jeff owned in Fallbrook,CA and I was working in his behalf to oversee the maintenance and operation of the tenants and the areas and facilities as an on-site manager. We had a great working relationship and as a team we made the apartment complex better and had happy tenants. Jeff is a genuine and efficient manager of properties under his care and has numerous personal and professional qualities that have made him successful. I consider Jeff one of my best friends and know that he is a man of integrity and honesty and I would highly recommend him to others in business and sales opportunities.

Fantastic Job! Thanks

Jeff was an outstanding realtor for my husband and I, who are both very picky people. Most would say my husband and I are "Type A" people, and honestly, when it comes to something like buying a house, we amp those qualities up even more. But Jeff handled our process with such care and concern, and was incredibly responsive - even at 10:00 at night when we had to call him "with yet another question."

Not sure when Jeff ever sleeps; he would work on our case until 10:00pm and we would have emails again from him in the morning at 6:00am. But he is outstanding, and I couldn't recommend him more. If you choose him, you will know your bright new home is in excellent hands.
