Anonymous U. sold a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

My wife and I had Jay Becker as our agent to sell our Sorrento Valley Condo in the Sorrento Ridge development in Feb. 2017. I really can't speak highly enough about job that he did. Our condo ended up selling for the highest amount in our entire development and we really couldn't have been happier. At our first meeting with Jay, it was immediately apparent that he was highly competent and great at what he does. Every aspect of selling our home was seamless and easy with Jay guiding us through the process. He was always available to answer questions and guidance. He really did go the extra mile by doing things that other agents I have worked with in the past did not. The effort he took into staging the property appropriately and thoroughly marketing the property really made a huge difference. He was incredibly sharp and professional throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Jay if you are looking for an agent to buy or sell a home, I can assure that you will not be disappointed. Matt Bober

Kristin B. bought a previous house in Solana Beach, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Jay Becker with Lux-Re-Homes has been nothing but an absolute professional with us throughout our entire journey of purchasing a house. He went out of his way to assist us in finding a place to rent when I arrived out here 2 years ago and came through on his promise to help us with our home purchase. As an active duty member it is important for me to find someone that is flexible and able to change with my schedule. That is Jay. No matter your price range, he has experience through all income levels. A hard worker that is 100% committed to his client. I would refer him anyone in the future without question.

Tony F. bought a previous house in Rancho Santa Fe, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

"Jay has been our agent now for over 2yrs and over that time has worked tirelessly on securing the best properties for us as a family. On hand, at times 24hrs a day!!! We cannot speak highly enough or recommend him more strongly. He has negotiated and talked us through the rental and buying process, scheduled appointments at a moments notice, accompanied us on countless viewings, always prepared to go that extra mile. On our eventual purchase Jay really stepped up to the mark, ensuring that we not only got the best price but that every detail in the contract had been meticulously studied and confirmed, ensuring that there were no hidden surprises on completion. Thanks again for spending the time to really understand, what we as your clients required from a home. Tony, Johanna and family."

mark h. bought a previous house in Solana Beach, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Jay and his team did a fantastic job of locating the oceanfront condo we were looking for. He spent lots of time with us educating us on the communities and also paying attention to our particular desires to help focus on the best choice for us. When we made our choice he negotiated through a very complicated bankruptcy & HOA lien situation saving us a six figure amount. His proactive work with our bank lender, the escrow company, and the HOA was the difference between closing and losing the deal altogether.

Jacqueline C. bought a previous house in La Costa, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Jay helped us to find our first home in La Costa. As first time homebuyers, we were in uncharted waters. Jay helped us navigate the unfamiliar territory, acting as our realtor, psychologist, teacher, cheerleader, and coach. He went above and beyond to help us achieve our home buying goal and was honest, friendly, and communicative throughout the whole process. We've been in our home for 2 years, we LOVE our home, and it has greatly appreciated in value in the meantime. We couldn't be happier! We would definitely choose Jay to be our realtor in the future and would recommend his expertise to all of our friends.

Mark H. bought a previous house in Solana Beach, Ca., CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Jay did an incredible job for us. First was helping us understand the S California market as we were coming from another state. He took us all up and down the coast and took the time to learn about us personally to recommend the best properties for our lifestyle. Ultimately he negotiated a significantly better than asking price for our chosen property and worked tirelessly right through the closing.

Toni B. sold a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Wow, what can we say about Jay... Jay served as our real estate agent when we bought our first home and when we sold our first home. He negotiated the price both times in order to get us the best deal possible - allowing us to buy under the asking price and sell highly over the asking price. Business aside, Jay is a great person. He is so kind and honest, and he was upfront with us from the start. He kept us up-to-date on the progress of each step, and he was always available for our questions. Jay and his team were extremely professional, and they went above and beyond for us. We would highly recommend Jay for all your real estate needs in the San Diego area.

Mohammad R. bought a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

It was such a nice coincidence to meet Jay and have him not only as our agent but also as an honest friend who put our interests and benefits as his first priority. In this nasty real estate market of California, which is a seller’s market not buyer’s, Jay did his best to protect our interests and respect our wishes as buyers. He is very responsive and caring that sometimes you forget he is your agent. You would think he is a good friend who is helping you go through this hard dilemma of your life. We really appreciate all his hard work and efforts and wish him the best in his career. May all houses in San Diego be sold under his watch as he deserves it. We will be glad to refer any of our friends who will be interested in purchasing a property in future to Jay.

steven g. bought a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Jay was extremely professional and direct when it came to buying our first house. We have worked with agents in the past but no one came come close to the utmost respect and precision Mr. Becker had for my family and purchase of our property. The only reason we payed more is because we offered more on our own accord and Jay did all of the legwork ensuring we could live in the house of our dreams.

Vicki R. bought a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

We moved to San Diego from out of state and Jay was instrumental in making the entire process go smoothly. He was well-prepared for our house-hunting visit and virtually tireless as we looked at many properties. He was pleasant to work with and it added an extra measure of security having him as our contact while we were still on the East coast.

Hi Amy, hope yourself and Mark are enjoying the new property along with "Bacon" your tame docile Mastiff. It was amazing how all of the hard work looking fell into place and that you found the perfect location for your needs. Happy to help, and it was an enjoable experience for me, and I hope you felt the same. Best of luck with your fellowship. Best Regards - Jay

Keith A. bought a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

With the help of Jay, I bought an awesome house in Pacific Beach. In fact, i pretty much owe it all to Jay Becker since he handled everything for me. Jay kept with me even though it took a couple months to find the right place. Once we did, he asked me what i wanted to offer, then showed me his real experience in the market when we ended up going in at a large amount under what i thought the seller would go for. He ended up saving me thousands just through a little bit of hardball and experience in both the market and the area. One more thing, he definitely makes the customer feel involved and aware of whats going on. Their website is really user friendly you should check it out http://www.own-sd.com. And even when i didn't have time to check the site, Jay sent me emails of the listings so i could check them on my phone and usually attached a bit of history on the house as well. Jay will definitely take care of you if your looking for a good home or investment. Five stars!

Hi Keith. It is certianly a pleasure working with clients that have strong insight as to what they are looking for. I feel that your purchase will prove to be a valueable investment for the years to come. You cannot beat 'beach-close' and the upgrades you completed had also added to value. Say hello to your folks, as it was a pleasure meeting them and earning their trust.

Richard F. bought a previous house in San Diego, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

A great experience! I purchased a condo in Downtown San Diego with the help of Jay at http://LUX-RE-HOMES.com. It was the best experience with a realtor that I have had to date out of many purchases. Jay had an expert grasp of the market. Jay negotiated outstanding terms for me as the buyer, and guided the purchase through to a swift conclusion. As you readers are probably aware, there are dozens of details and many issues that arise in the purchase of a unit, yet the process was very smooth. This was a busy time for me both personally and professionally, and I was new to the area, so Jay's focus was important to me and effective for me. Highly recommended to manage your purchase.

mark h. bought a previous house in Solana Beach, CA with Sotheby's Int'l Realty Jay Becker and would recommend them to other home sellers.

Our experience is was outstanding! Jay is without a doubt the best of the best. In our case we were looking for an oceanfront 2nd home, 7 figure price, and so we also needed expert guidance in understanding the San Diego market. Jay was generous with his time in taking us through all the primary areas of interest explaining the benefits of certain communities. All the while he was paying attention to our comments and getting to know what was important to us. Frankly, he had no way of knowing if we would really commit to a deal at the end of the day but he was always available and more than willing to spend time on long phone calls working with us. He refined our personal webpage on his site so that it focused on the properties of interest and we could save favorites for further discussion. Jay went to work on one we liked and it was a very complex bank owed situation with liens & assessments in the background. He truly got inside the heads of those on the sellers end. Although we knew of a much higher accepted offer that fell out during escrow, Jay was savy enough sense they might now be willing to negotiate. In the end they accepted at 6 figures under the prior deal which is no small feat for highly sought after oceanfront property. He closed the deal on this 7 figure property that was exactly what we wanted in a great community. I have never seen such a complicated escrow but Jay put an outstanding person, Christina, from his staff on the case. She was amazing and I think she may have been working full time just on this because she was always moving the process forward when the escrow company seemed incapable of getting things settled. If Jay had not had the foresight to understand where this was going, I sincerely believe the deal would have been lost or even in a best case scenario would have been another month in closing. Oh, and by the way, he advised me against using the sellers preferred escrow company to save closing fees and he was right about that too ! He also brought an excellent bank loan officer, Don Brown, VP BofA, to the deal that quickly facilitated our loan and was also critical in moving escrow forward at critical stages. I could say a lot more but I'll close in saying that even though the deal is done, Jay has continued follow up calls asking if there is ANYTHING further he can do to help us and has also personally come over to see that we are getting settled in to our beautiful new residence. I am happy to recommend Jay Becker or talk to anyone about how great he is to work with personally and professionally.

I recently purchased a house in North Pacific Beach with the help of Jay and I couldn't be happier! Jay's experience, market knowledge, persistence, and diligence are what meant the most to me. Jay really cares! He listens! He wants to make his clients happy and treated my home purchase as if it was his own. I would recommend Jay's services to any close friend or family member without hesitation. Jay allowed me to focus on my career during the 9 week span from our first market tour to closing. Jay never stopped working in an effort to find the perfect home at the perfect price. I can't emphasize how much I appreciate Jay's patience, understanding, and diligence. Thanks again, Jay!
