A complex process made easy by London! Found our new home within a week!
Not sure if it was just coincidence or good fortune, but coming from London, UK, we were referred to London Fields via our relocation agents to help us find a new home in the San Diego area. Not knowing how the whole system worked for buying a house here, London asked all the right questions to provide us with a short list of properties that helped us to quickly identify the area and type of house we wanted to live in (and could afford). We felt secure and confident as we were so well looked after by London, who always acted with our best interests at heart, was honest and transparent, full of timely, honest advice and knew the area like the back of his hand. He gave us enough information to make well informed decisions, gave us the pros and cons of each approach we could take to help guide rather than push us. He negotiated with respect and integrity with the seller's realtor and as a result, we have found our first home in the US within a week at the price we wanted and love it. We couldn't have done it without London! Johanne and Nick
London fields was an awesome Realtor agent and was super cool. He was thorough in his searches and personalized them based on the buyers likes. London was never pushy or self serving. He understood the service of US VETERANS and was appreciative of our service and that showed in his work. I highly recommend London Fields. Cory USMC
My wife and I were introduced to London through the SIRVA relocation program and from start to finish he displayed a masterful command of both local knowledge and negotiation skills.
He really pulled a rabbit out of a hat when finding us a house in our price range in a competitive market where we knew we wanted to buy. London went above and beyond to find us our home...without it even going on the open market! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy in North County!
London is a skilled realtor with the ability to listen closely and produce absolute magic when it comes to finding his client the perfect property. On the sell side: I've never seen a realtor work so hard to get his client top market prices while keeping concessions to a minimum. I highly recommend him, and plan to use him again in the future.
My wife and I had a great experience working with London on our first home purchase. He is knowledgeable, professional and goes above and beyond to get the job done. I highly recommend London to anybody looking to buy or sell a home.
He was very efficient at finding out my needs for the move, my time frame, and helped me tremendously to move through the process as quickly as possible and to get the best price possible. Shawn from Carlsbad
We found London after having had a frustrating process with another agent and having lost out on 2 homes in multiple bid situations. Wow, what a difference! London immediately took action to find us the perfect home. It was evident that it was important to him that we were completely happy, and not just that he was getting a sale. His knowledge and expertise made buying our house such a positive experience from start to finish. I simply cannot say enough good things about him - I've already recommended him to 3 friends and will continue to do so! If and when we do sell in the future, I'll be calling London again! Ingrid from Carlsbad
I first reached out to London while sitting on a balcony overlooking the Caribbean, when my sister did an online search and located the house I was looking for. After texting London and arranging to see the property upon my return, I sensed that he was the type of realtor I could easily work with - he was knowledgeable, logical, reasonable, and built a framework strategy for the property I hoped to purchase. What I most appreciated was his perspective of 'finding the right buyer for the right property', which helped me to work with him in making an offer, competing with other offers, and closing the deal.
Not only did we purchase the home I was looking for, but we used London to simultaneously sell our home. He clearly knows what he is doing and, after listing our home, we received multiple offers within the week. Working with London to select 'the right buyer' for our home, by reviewing each offer on its own merit and selecting the one that would get to the finish line, was very important to me. We were able to sell our home and close escrow exactly on time, with very little stress.
I have bought and sold a few homes in my life, with mixed results. After using London from both the buyer and seller perspective, I would most certainly recommend London as a realtor. I cannot think of anything that I wish could have been handled differently. Kathleen and Family
London is by far the best agent I have worked with in Carlsbad and So Cal. After two decades of buying, selling and renting homes, London's knowledge, attitude and professionalism stands WELL above all others. I look forward to having London as my agent again in the near future! Do not hesitate, he truly is the best!
Paula from Carlsbad
London was a thorough thoughtful person in all phases of sale ,as well as very professional .London knows how to make your home as valuable as it is to you which I thought was one of his best assets,you are in good hands with him. Tom
London Fields provided excellent customer support as our agent. He prepared a fantastic sales brochure with professional photography. The flyers were appealing to potential buyers. We appreciated his market strategy of accompanying every prospective buyer and their agent at each showing. Thereby the prospective buyers were made aware of the home amenities including energy saving features and 360 degree video security system. Also, he emphasized the beautiful landscaping and area benefits including schools, shopping, and restaurants. We highly recommend his services as a listing agent. Ron and Maria
London helped my husband & I purchase a home in 2009 and sell a home in 2016. In both cases, we found London to be easy to work with as well as extremely competent & trustworthy. Both buying and selling, he demonstrated his knowledge of the market, the area, and the process. He listened to our needs and was attuned to our situation & priorities. In 2009, we found our home after working with London only a few days. And in 2016, we received a solid offer on our home after only 4 days on the market. He guided us through start to finish, even helping us handle details & paperwork from out of state when necessary. I highly recommend London for any real estate need in the San Diego area. Happy Texas Family
My own experience with Mr. Fields was quite extraordinary. My situation was difficult but I did not have to deal with any of it--Mr. Fields took care of everything--much of what he did had nothing to do with his work in selling the house; apart from his commission he received no compensation except my eternal gratitude and my wish to recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate agent. I should stress that I have dealt with Mr. Fields twice. In each case his real estate acuity in setting a good sale price and in advising about what physical things could be done to encourage a prompt sale were outstanding. With Mr. Fields you just don't worry about anything. In many cases he even makes small physical repairs and enhancements himself. There seems to be nothing he can't do. His integrity is unquestionable. He is just the absolute best! Elizabeth Doty
London has helped us with previous home purchases so we did not hesitate to use him for selling our house. He was able to sell our house for infinitely more than we had ever hoped and made the process so easy. I have purchased and sold homes on my own while my husband was deployed and London was so helpful in both instances. I would recommend him a thousand times over when buying or selling a house. You truly will be missing out if you aren't working with him. He's great at what he does and you will benefit by using him, 100%. And he is very accommodating if you have a dog! :) Sam and Vince
London was professional, easy to work with, and I especially liked his easy going style. I never felt pressured, yet he had great insight and helped us get a VERY good price for the house. My brother is also using him to sell his property. I would highly recommend London to any of my friends and family. Kathy from Encinitas
London was recommended to me by a good friend and has been a great partner in finding my new home! He listens very well to what I'm interested in but makes very helpful suggestions on homes I'd have missed on my own. He has been very patient and supportive during my home search. Amber from Carlsbad
We chose London Fields as our realtor because of his genuine enthusiasm for our home and the neighborhood of La Costa Valley. He understood the many benefits of the neighborhood, and effectively got the word out to prospective buyers, even landing our house on the cover of The View real estate magazine. He was very much in our corner, assertively handling challenges while providing know-how, connections and support along the way. Bottom line: London was great to work with and sold our house quickly and for more than list price. Laurel and Family in La Costa
London did a great job helping us buy our home. He is professional and we'll versed in the business. He did not push us out of our price range and he let us know everything he could about each place. He sold our condo for the asking price in 10 days(cash). We have been in new our home for almost 2 years now and it has appreciated 100k. We would call if again if we ever wanted to sell. Matt and Cara
We had a great experience with London. He helped us find a house in the couple of days that I was in town looking. He found a place for us close to work and in a safe neighborhood. He worked within our budget and with his knowledge of the other agent was able to put in an offer well below the asking price. Amanda and Brian from Oceanside
5 STAR. We have purchased 10 houses in our lifetime, and London is by far the BEST agent we have ever used. He listens, will advise you but never push you, and is extremely knowledgeable about the North County area. I would recommend him and will definitely use him again. Karen from La Costa
This was my first time buying a home and while it was very exciting it was also very overwhelming. I didn't have any idea of what to expect or what to ask for. London was able to assist me with anything I needed and was able to break down the information very simply as this was a new process for me. I had so many questions and London was so patient with me whenever I needed him to answer something for me he was very prompt and made sure I was comprehending what he was saying. He kept me updated throughout the escrow and was always very open and welcoming when I would come by the office. Even after the sale he followed up with me to see how I liked my new home and if I needed anything.
Thank you so much London
We were lucky to have London by our side as we make the big move from the midwest to north county. London took the time to really understand what we valued and led us on a journey to find the perfect home for us. We were impressed with his detailed knowledge of the area including schools, parks, shopping, and history of the various areas. Once we were ready to make an offer London was tremendously helpful negotiating with the seller and was instrumental in helping us getting the deal done. After our offer was accepted we headed back to the midwest to prepare for the move. London did all the little things to put us at ease from 2000 miles away... including taking the time to attend our inspection! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a home in coastal north county. Marc from Carlsbad
London helped us sell our place back in 2007 and then helped us buy when we came back to the area in 2011. Both times, London was an efficient, no-nonsense professional whose advice to us was grounded in his diligent research and knowledge of the local real estate market. When we worked with London to sell our house, we appreciated the fact that there were no gimmicks with him, just honest straight-talk about what was realistic in terms of sale price, time on the market, etc. When London helped us buy our current house, he was a model of efficiency in terms of translating what we wanted (and could afford) into an effective home search. I've recommended London to anyone who's ever been looking for an agent and I'm happy to do so again here. Work with London---you'll be glad you did. Dan and Family
Highly recommend London. London brought a calm and confidence to a process my wife and I inherently found to be quite stressful. Deep market knowledge, pro-active, professional, responsive, respected, are all characteristics we could use to describe him. We listed and had our home under contract within 2 weeks at list, and we really owe that all to his guidance and marketing/negotiating skills. London was there for us throughout the process, even meeting up with contractors in our absence, through to closing.
London has been our realtor for 9 years. He helped us purchase our first home in 2006 and has been our 1st call regarding ANYTHING real estate related ever since! He listens intently to everything you say and will research tirelessly to find multiple listings that will fit the criteria of the home you are searching for. He acts lightening fast returning your calls days, nights or weekends. His personal standards are very high and he will go to great lengths to make sure your documents are filled out and delivered immediately ensuring your offer gets in ASAP. He is a wealth of information and will answer any question you have, he will guide you with the best of his ability and he will fight for you to get everything you want and more in your purchase or sale. Since the purchase of our home in 2007, he sold my sister her home, my best friends home and condo and is currently working with my sister on ANOTHER real estate sale and purchase. It is wonderful when people ask me if I know a good realtor to be able to give them London Fields name as their future realtor as I know they are in the best hands possible. Gapp Family
I met London off of a referral. We talked and went over my needs and decided it would work out to work with each other. He was very helpful and would respond quickly with text or email. I never had a problem getting a hold of him or a answer from him. This was not my first home buying process and he understood this. Montoya Family
First impression was his Friendliness, Professionalism, then after working with him he was very Attentive, and Returned calls fast. Very Involved in the process, I look forward to working with him Again. David
London was by far the best agent I ever worked with. He was my agent in three transactions, two purchases and one sale. Not only did he endlessly take me to properties with a smile, but he walked me through the process and even made a short sale I had to do tolerable and not unpleasant at all.
One thing I will never forget is when I asked London how tall he was - (six feet exactly he said) if he wouldn't mind laying along a wall in a prospective home purchase of mine in order to determine if a bureau would fit. He graciously agreed. Just an all around nice guy. Linda
We feel very fortunate that we found London Fields when our house needed to be sold. My husband had just died and I had undergone knee surgery which was disabling. I was not in an ideal emotional or physical condition to concentrate on any of the factors involved in a house sale.
I was impressed when I first met with London. He was upbeat, but immediately seemed to understand the ramifications of my particular concerns and worries. His knowlege of our neighborhood was heartening. After he examined he house, he was detailed in what needed to be done to improve it's desirability to prospective buyers.
As I was not physically able to do much of anything, he found workmen to make any necessary changes and he found good workmen at a decent price.
Thoughout the entire process, London responded immediately to any concerns or questions I had. He stopped by every day to check on the house.
Once he started showing the house, he did everything he could to make the prospective buyers' schedules compatible with mine.
He sold the house in much less time than I had imagined and he sold it for more money than originally anticipated.
I recommend London Fields to anyone who has a house to sell (or buy). He is the most professional and effective realtor I have encountered.
My family was relocating for the 2nd time in 3 years to a very different marketplace, North County San Diego. As you can well imagine, we researched the area ourselves very diligently as we have a daughter that was going to be a Junior in High School. We had several options, all with tradeoffs to be decided upon. Meeting London was a god send for us, he took the time to listen to our needs and desires. He also took an interest in where we were coming from, which was critical for our finding a great home in the area. London did a great job educating us on all of the areas visiting homes, schools, neighborhoods allowing us to understand the differences. This was not about the transaction but the education required to make a good decision for our family. Thanks London, we will always appreciate your making our relocation experience to this area very positive and providing us the information to make a great decision!

To start, my dad was a real estate agent and when it was time for us to buy a new home (& dad was no longer an agent), I asked him for direction. He said there was one man he would trust and that was London. I was sold on that reference alone, but London earned our trust very quickly. After selling 3 properties and buying 1 with London, we are completely satisfied with him as our agent. To sell our townhome, he told us exactly what to do and we worked together to find the right competitive list price. Our home was listed on Friday, we had three at-or-over-list offers by Sunday night, and sold it on Monday. When looking for our new home, I was concerned that we were wasting his time. "You won't know the right house until you see enough of the wrong houses," was his encouragement to keep looking. Of course, when we needed a little prodding, he gave that to, by asking us to provide reasons for our decisions, which helped us see what we really liked, disliked, and wanted from a new home. He was a fantastic help. We won't be moving again for decades, but London is an immediate referral for anyone we know that's looking to buy or sell a home.
London is an incredible Realtor. He knows his stuff! I was assigned to him as part of my husband's relocation and he was integral to guiding us on which area to buy based on our criteria. He is a killer negotiator and was able to navigate a tricky and overly emotional seller and seller's agent. He is well connected in the area and was able to make recommendations on house painters, flooring, electrician and even helped get estimates while my family and I were still out of state. He goes above and beyond for his clients and is truly passionate about what he does.
We feel so lucky to have found London! We were new to the area and his knowledge, expertise, professionalism and great negotiating skills helped us find the perfect house for our family. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell! Kelly
My wife and I relocated from the East Coast in April and worked with London. We couldn't be happier with the service we received, his work ethic and his diligence and professionalism he exhibited throughout the negotiation process.
He offered a lot of good advice and ensured we made a sound purchase decision versus just try to make a sale. We highly recommend him. Bradley Family
Hiring London was the best decision we ever made. We had a very fragile and stressful financial situation therefore needed to sell fast. He brought a photographer who took stunning pictures of our home and went above and beyond to make sure it was ready to show then held multiple open houses. He took care of every last detail keeping us well informed and holding our hands the whole way thru. London was able to find a buyer and help us close within 30 days. We are eternally grateful! Sandy
We used London to purchase our first house 5 years ago, and recently used him to sell the same house (for a nice profit!). We could not have asked for a better experience either time! From staging tips and photographs to pricing strategy and negotiations we could always count on London for honest, practical advice. He was always available to answer questions or address concerns, no matter how small. I have recommended him to several other friends who have been quite happy with his service and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him again. Our only regret is that we can't use him again for our next purchase on the East coast! Ryan and Amanda
London was great! My sale went smooth and easy. He always responded fast and answered any questions I had. He is professional and has LOTS of experience! I would recommend London to everyone, and will also use him for my next house sale. Olsen Family
London was excellent in helping us find a new home in Carlsbad. We were not from the area and he educated us in each area within North County. He listened to our needs/wants and delivered. His showings were high quality and on point to our wants. He did not waist our time. I will use London for any future real estate transactions. Scott H.
My husband and I recently purchased our first home and were lucky to have London as our realtor. Without Londons contacts and business acumen we would have never been able to get this amazing home. We highly recommend him and look forward to using him again for our next home!
London helped get me and my wife into a house using the VA Home Loan on a very short timeline. We moved from Florida and only had about 7 days to find a house and then about a month to close on the place before we needed to be moving in. Without London, we never could have done this. Compared to other realtors that I have interacted with, London is head and shoulders above the crowd. He is honest, proactive, straight forward, punctual, and reliable. Not only was he very familiar with the local area and general real estate, but he also knew all of the ins and outs of the VA Loan process. He was also able to negotiate with the seller to get our offer accepted over others based on his outstanding reputation in the local community.
London did a great job handling the purchase of my new home. He was knowledgeable about the area, catered to my budget and showed me an extensive number of listing prior to the final purchase. His patience and understanding of my expectations positively impacted the successful purchase of my current home.
London was absolutely critical in my wife and I being able to purchase a home. London was able to work with me over the phone and via email the entire time (I was away on military orders). He was able to find the perfect house for my wife and I, negotiate a deal below our budget and work with our mortgage handlers and our VA loan. In short; London got us the first house we bid on, for under budget, with a 100% VA loan, while I was out of state, and then still managed to get another $3 grand off during the closing. I could not have been more pleased and would strongly recommend.
As a longtime resident of CA, I literally do not have enough good things to say about London Fields. I have bought & sold several homes in the Carlsbad CA area, and London's professionalism and knowledge of the market was always above board and top notch. Every sale was within a couple, to a few months. I also found the homes I wanted to purchase almost immediately. He is, quite simply, the most attentive and intelligent agent you will meet in So Cal. Do not hesitate to call him!
London was recommended to us by a family member and I cannot be happier that we went with their recommendation. Every time we reached out to London he was extremely helpful no matter how many questions we asked . He is very knowledgeable and I trusted everything he told us. London will always be our realtor and we will recommend him to others. Jesus and Family
