I have now been a customer of Gracinda Maier for four real estate transactions including the
purchase of one property and the sale of three properties. In all of these transactions, I have
been highly pleased by the results, the process, her performance, and her professionalism.

During the recent sale of our home, we were thrilled that you successfully marketed and sold the property during the most difficult real estate (and stock market) downturn in decades. Not only
were you able to sell our home while many competing listings did not sell, you also managed to
negotiate the very best sales price possible. Soon after the sale, you again worked your magic
when you found our next dream home. This time on the buying side the transaction, you
negotiated a great price, using your contacts, determination and skill to allow our bid to rise to the
top during an unusually difficult multiple offer situation.

Gracinda’s confidence and calm nature were apparent when we first met her and became even more evident as the pressures of negotiation began. We were sad to hear that we were bidding against another potential buyer, but she made all the difference. In addition to keeping us informed up-to-the minute, she seemed to work tirelessly to make sure that our offer was appropriate and timely. When we were thinking of giving up and offering on a less desirable house, she went out of her way to make sure that the negotiations proceeded so that we ended up with the home that we really wanted. She seemed to always know when to push and when to give.

Gracinda puts her client’s first. She communicated with us on a daily basis with feedback from showings, providing information on new listings and current sales activity in our neighborhood. Her advice on staging to bring out the best qualities of our home brought us a higher selling price than comparable properties in our neighborhood. We couldn’t be happier with the high level of service Gracinda provided.

Gracinda is persistent, detailed oriented, tireless and proactive, all of which helped greatly in this challenging task. She was also very helpful in providing critical information, referrals and advice. Her depth of knowledge about the market, the laws, the strategies and “closing the deal” was also valuable. She was willing to “go the extra mile” to make sure all aspects directly and indirectly related to selling a house were addressed.
Gracinda assisted us in finding a buyer at our price and within the time frame we had hoped for. Closing proceeded very smoothly, in large part due to Gracinda’s skill in dealing with the buyer’s broker.
In our interaction with Gracinda, she has consistently demonstrated exceptional professionalism, attention to detail and dedication to satisfying her client’s objectives. On a personal level, she is a warm, caring person that makes others feel immediately comfortable in her presence. These personal qualities, combined with her experience in the North County real estate market and emphasis on client service, makes her an exceptional realtor.

We feel ever so fortunate to have been in the hands of a true real estate professional while relocating to San Diego and want to thank you for the many hours you dedicated to finding us the ideal home. Whether you were working with us in person or for us in our absence, to know that you were there looking out for our best interests at all times was enormously comforting and reassuring. From our introductory long distance telephone calls, to our initial trip to San Diego from Connecticut, to the next visit actively searching for, and finding, our new home, the daunting task of moving cross country was made much easier thanks to your ongoing help and sage advice.
Joel and Cathy
Your market knowledge and experience really helped us narrow down which neighborhood we wanted to live and we couldn’t be any happier. Thanks for being extremely patient over the past seven months while we toured numerous neighborhoods and homes. Your recommendations were extremely helpful as we were going through our initial decision process. After we decided to move to North County, your years of experience in this market really came into play. Your knowledge of the neighborhoods, home construction, and attention to our other needs (inspectors and insurance providers), was so valuable and helped guide us in making the right decisions.

Over the years we have bought and sold many, many properties and have dealt with many, many realtors and realtor associates. Spencer was a realtor for many years. Between us we think we are pretty good at assessing whether someone is a real professional in real estate or merely someone who sells real estate. We decided that Gracinda was a real professional who is committed to assisting her clients in finding just what they are looking for, making sure they get a good deal, and making sure as well that all the details of the negotiations and final transaction are handled as they should be.
Her knowledge of the marketplace, of us, and of how to negotiate the final deal all played a part in our getting exactly what we wanted
