Above and beyond service. The attention to detail, follow up and support throughout has been outstanding. With three transactions happening at once - both Mary Beth and Philip have been there making sure the work flow process and been has smooth as possible. SO glad we choose Mary Beth and Philip to list/sell our primary home and assist with purchasing our condo in San Diego and home in Sacramento.
Previous review from Gail & David A.
My husband's work has us relocating from San Diego to Sacramento and Mary Beth not only led the sale of our existing family home, she also helped us find and purchase a new smaller property so we can still call San Diego home. While looking for real estate up north in Sacramento, Mary Beth took the lead to partner with the agent up north so that all three properties closed within the same timeframe for low stress. Mary Beth exemplifies how relocations should be for families! We are so fortunate to have had her leading this project, she did it with style, class, patience, persistence and a great sense of humor! She definitely is the "know" in San Diego! Relocations is her finesse!

As first time home buyers, we wanted to have an agent that would look out for our wants and needs and Mary Beth & Philip did just that. They were 100% honest with us throughout the entire process and they fought to get us exactly what we wanted. Mary Beth & Philip were also extremely sweet and caring, always making sure we were as comfortable as we can be. Their knowledge in reality was also pivotal in helping us understand the choices we had to make. Mary Beth & Philip are the perfect realtors for anyone!
When my husband and I decided to move to San Diego from Denver, we knew it would be difficult to manage all of the aspects of a long-distance move that included the sale of our condo and the purchase of a home. We could afford only a modest dwelling, and we did not know what part of San Diego County would suit us best. My husband, Alan contacted MaryBeth and Philip over the Internet, and things became much easier from then on. They recommended a trustworthy and highly competent real estate broker in Denver, who made it a piece of cake to get a great price for our condo. They then took me around to look at condos and homes in various parts of the county. We ended up in a beautiful new home in a friendly, well-kept neighborhood. Throughout the buying process MaryBeth and Philip were responsive to our every request, and imparted knowledge of San Diego that was requisite to our choosing the right home. Alan and I give a wholehearted recommendation to these two warm human beings who are always willing and eager to help past and present clients, and who regularly keep in touch with their clients, never taking anyone's business or relationship for granted.
We first met Mary Beth and Philip at a local winery over a year ago. At that point in time, we weren't necessarily looking to purchase a home. We chatted for a couple of hours and exchanged contact info. They told us that they were there to help if we decided to start looking for a home in the future. There was no pressure. We felt like they were more interested in getting to know us as friends rather than befriending us for business. We kept in touch for about a year and finally decided we were ready to start looking for a home. Throughout the entire process, Mary Beth and Philip were professional, thoughtful, understanding, patient, responsive, and trustworthy. They are genuinely nice people who truly care about their clients - all of whom become their friends. Mary Beth and Philip work quickly and efficiently. They understand the market in San Diego County and do their very best to counsel you throughout the process, making it as stress-free as possible. Both Mary Beth and Philip are willing to work around the clock to ensure that paperwork is completed, offers are sent, and timelines are met. There were times we submitted offers as late as 11pm and as early as 6am. They never stop working for their clients. I'm sure they would've responded at 3am if we needed them. With the help of Mary Beth, Philip, and their colleagues, we were able to close in 27 days. Everyone worked extremely hard to make this happen and we are beyond grateful. We've made lifelong friends in Mary Beth and Philip and we hope they feel the same way about us. They have our highest recommendation. Alaina and Regina

We couldn't have asked for better real estate agents than Mary Beth and Phillip. They were always available to answer our questions. They guided us through the process of buying a home with ease. If they don't know the answer to a question, I guarantee they know an expert who does. After 4 or 5 failed offers with another agent, a friend recommended our new friends at Ascent Real Estate. I'm fairly certain our first and only offer with Mary Beth and Phillip was accepted because of their exceptional efforts on our behalf. They are great agents and great friends!
