Dear Don,

As owners of many homes, my husband and I have had enough experience to know “the drill” when selling and buying a home. We could not have been happier working with you in our most recent sale of our home and purchase of another home. We always knew what was going on either through your weekly phone calls (sometimes more than that) and our communication with your office staff. We always felt like you were on top of things for us and for everyone involved. When we stumbled on some problems due to errors caused by realtors on the other side of the transactions, you were right there to help them fix things even though it wasn’t always your responsibility. This is a sign of a truly committed professional and we are most appreciative of your efforts in this regard.

Selling and buying another home is not a process one likes to engage in frequently but you made it less of a burden and a relatively easy transition. In addition to making sure all the paperwork was in order, you also made our lives easier by helping out with some basic things that we needed like giving us moving boxes, changing the locks on our new house and sending us out on a celebratory dinner. Traditional thank you baskets are always nice but your thank you gifts were much more practical and useful and just what we needed!

We have already told everyone we know that if they need to buy or sell a home, they MUST call you! Even though I don’t plan on moving again anytime in the near future, when and if the time does arrive I will wholeheartedly call you and enlist your excellent services again. Thank you for not only being good at selling and buying homes, but for being a wonderful, friendly and supportive person to work with. We wish you all the best success in 2004!

With Best Regards,

Melissa and David Stolow, Santa luz

Don, Again, you and your staff have come through for me in stellar fashion. This is our third transaction together and every time 1 am impressed at your professionalism and commitment to your client. You shouldn’t be selling real estate; you should be teaching others how to do it correctly. In the last couple of years, I did a couple of transactions and didn’t use you and, to tell you the truth, I regret not using your services. The comparison between other, so-called ‘professionals’ and you is like night and day.

Again, you went to bat for me on a price and commission reduction to your possible detriment. As such, I enclose a check to make up for your loss of commission. I’ve also included the lost commission from the other realtors as I feel you earned it more than they did.

I have to congratulate Eddie and the rest of your staff for how they handled this. Everybody seemed enthusiastic and committed to getting the job done right and on time. The systems you have in place and the checks and balances virtually ensure a trouble-free deal. Well done! I’ve included a little extra in your check. Please send these kind folks off to a nice dinner on me.

I have dealt with realtors my whole life as my father sold real estate. I have bought and sold several houses and have helped other people in their transactions. I have worked with countless realtors while looking for property, dropping in for open houses, and actual hands-on transactions. I have yet to earn: anybody with the style, politeness, thoroughness, professionalism and care that you bring to the industry.

You want a reference? You can have anybody, anytime, call me and I’ll be happy to let them know they could be doing a lot worse than engaging your team.

Best regards and a hearty ‘Thank You’.

Don and his team did a terrific job on the sale of our home. In my opinion, he sets the standard for integrity, transparency and responsiveness.

We had our house listed by another agent for many months, and although it sold twice, it fell apart twice. When we decided to change agents, I interviewed others, all very experienced and with top reputations. I wanted to hire an agent who not only was effective, but was committed to straight talk and prompt response. Don was willing to invest 2 hours of unrushed time talking to me about his approach, strategies and values. He was also willing to take the risk of losing the listing if he could not sell the property within a reasonable period of time.

I was impressed.

Don got the house sold, at almost our top asking price, in two weeks. What was more important was that he got the deal closed, with difficult buyers and a difficult buyers’ agent. The buyers having failed to get a lowball price (thanks, Don) tried to get it all back with aggressive actions during the inspection process (our house is high-end, very tricked out and in great condition). Don counseled us through that icky process, keeping our blood pressure down, our wallets still in our pockets, and to a successful completion of that part of the deal.

Then the buyers’ loan took two extra weeks, and this caused lots of complications with their very difficult agent. Don got our carrying costs covered, and to a smooth, if delayed closing.

Through the whole process, Don and Gerri (and Tim) communicated with us promptly, confidently and importantly to us, kindly. He gave us real advice, not just choices, without attempting to strong arm any particular decision along the way. His knowledge of the inner workings of the process gave us confidence and kept us patient when we were losing patience.

Don’s TC and team handled all paperwork, and external process accurately and quickly. They took care of all details that they could, making an otherwise difficult process easier.

Thanks to Don, Gerri and the whole team. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I could not believe the price Don and Gerri got us for our house and how quickly the offers came in. They created a big buzz about our property before we actually put it on the market, and it worked wonderfully. They expertly advised us on what items we should improve and how much to spend to get the maximum return. We got a huge return on our investment (way over market values in that area). They helped us choose the best buyer so we were confident the sale would go through. They kept us constantly updated on the entire process, and even helped it close earlier than the already short escrow of 30 days. We will never use a different realtor, and will recommend them to everyone we know. They truly cared about the whole transaction working in our best interest. Can’t say enough about how happy we were with the entire process from start to finish. I’ve never written a review for anything, but I had to share our experience!

This review is long over due! Don and Gerri helped my family and I sell our home in a Chula Vista and purchase another, during the holidays, too!

Don was able to sell our house in just a few weeks. We thought during the holidays it was going to be tough to sell but not with Don’s services.  We had offers in the first couple of days!  Don worked with my transfer department (government move) and helped clarify things on both ends.  Don and his team are very knowledgeable and patient. They calmed my fears and kept me sane during a very stressful time.  If you’ve ever worked with your employer’s transfer department, overwhelming can’t describe the process.  It truly helps to have a realtor you can trust.

While we were in escrow, we were in search for another house a few hours away.  Don was able to assist us even then.  He referred another realtor who was an expert in the area but quite honestly, we were spoiled with Don and requested his services.  He facilitated our purchase in a new development and with his team’s help, got us in the house within 21 days!

We are truly grateful for Don.  He is a genuine individual who cares for his client’s and their needs. He never put pressure on us nor made us feel we were bothersome with all of our MANY questions.If you are looking for a down to earth and honest realtor…please look no further.  Don Pelletier is the realtor you want.  He’s the realtor you need.  We found our realtor in him and will not go to anyone else!

Individuals such as Don are hard to come by these days. Professional. Smart. Creative. Strong work ethic. Respectful. Skilled negotiator. Commited to providing the highest level of service before, during and after the sale. Genuine and down to earth. I could go on and on! We used Don to sell our home years ago and he negotiated a much higher price than we originally listed the house for. He even took time to vet a realtor out of state for my elderly mom to sell her home. He then made himself available to offer advice and checked back with me countless times through her challenging sale. We will definitely use Don to sell our home next time and would highly recommend him. Thank you so much Don!

I had to liquidate several properties in San Diego. The issues were complicated and I do not reside in California. As trustee for an estate, I scheduled several interviews with real estate agents in the San Diego area who were recommended to me. Don Pelletier came to the interview extremely well prepared. He had already worked up comps, researched the neighborhoods, and had an excellent presentation and familiarity with the area. He won the interview process, hands down. We never looked back. Don worked closely with me and I came to value his advice. Through his hard work, we reached satisfactory sales of all properties in a very respectable time frame. I have sold many properties in many states over the years. I never worked with any real estate agent better qualified than Don. If you want a hardworking, knowledgeable, and helpful real estate agent, Don Pelletier is your man. I recommend him highly and without reservation.

A friend referred Don to us, after we listed our home with a realtor who was a neighbor/friend and we were having no luck selling after 6 long months. My husband, upset and frustrated, interviewed several agents along with Don, all from very prestigious firms in San Diego. Don stood out, not just because my husband thought he could sell the property, but because he felt Don was a person of integrity, which is important to us. Don kept every promise he made to us. His team, which includes his wife Gerri and his nephew Tim, are all incredibly professional, friendly and responsive. They help Don to run his real estate business like no other we have seen. My husband is a busy attorney in a large nationwide firm with over 600 attorney’s, it is difficult to impress him with either efficiency or intellect and Don did both. Unfortunately, both skills were needed on our real estate transaction and we both feel if it were not for Don’s expertise, many things could have gone wrong. Don has over 30 years in his field, working with all kinds of real estate transactions on all sides from mid-range to luxury properties. Don was able to achieve very close to our asking price within 2 weeks of listing our property. However a very difficult and unresponsive buyer’s realtor and problems with the lending process put us many days over the original escrow close, and I feared the deal would have to be canceled. My husband and I have bought and sold properties before and we have never had a deal this difficult. However, Don persevered. He has an amazingly even temperament and was able to work through all of the problems, mostly to our advantage. Don and his wife Gerri are a wealth of knowledge when it comes to contractors, painters, heating and air people etc. Everyone that the Pelletier’s introduced us to were reasonably priced, efficient and professional. I think they know everyone in San Diego after being in the real estate world as long as Don has been. We only regret that we did not hire Don sooner. This was truly a wild ride, we are so happy Don and Gerri Pelletier and their fantastic team were our drivers! Save yourself some time and headache and hire Don first!

We have been so blessed to have Don and his awesome team help us sell our home. Don’s experience, wisdom, and sense of humor brought an anchor of calm and stability to the stressful and fluid situation of selling our home in San Diego and then buying and moving to another state. Let’s face it, no matter how hard you try, buying or selling a home gets emotional. It was a juggling act for us, and Don was there guiding us along the whole way. Every aspect of this stressful and bumpy transition that Don and his team touched was calmed and smoothed and made to work like clockwork. We think Don understands that more choices and options presented in an understandable way empowers his clients, and with this empowerment you become part of the Don Pelletier Group Team. This was certainly true for us. This was our 3rd home transaction, and so we thought we sort of knew what we were doing. However, the wisdom and experience Don shared with us opened our eyes and raised the bar of our understanding in many aspects of residential real estate. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of everything Don has to offer, you will not regret it.

In mid August,  2016, we were faced with the problems of selling our home, purchasing a new one , and being able to leave on  our long-planned vacation on Oct 3rd.  Don had sold us our home 15 yrs before so I gave him a call and proceeded to put the house in “show” condition. When Don arrived, he assured us it could be done. Unbelievably, the Pelletier Group with its wide network of connections, their attention to detail,  and their dedication to our needs accomplished it. We have since realized what an incredible  resource they are. They have had an answer to all our questions and have put us in touch with a general contractor to oversee our renovations.  We could not be more satisfied with their services and would recommend them, without hesitation, to anyone.

When I told my wife I had called Don, she asked “Who?? Not the guy from the bench!”.

We were in the middle of buying a second home while selling our first home at the same time. We started by selecting a more…discounted real estate group. “What’s the worst that could happen?” We asked ourselves. Well the answer was quite a lot… Things went off the rails fast. Thousands of dollars and countless hours wasted. Potential legal action (an empty threat, but nerve wracking nevertheless!).

We keep seeing Don signs by our home, so I decided to call him. Don stopped by our home and gave us soundly advice. So we immediately hired him and fired the other agent.

Don worked with us and he rescued us. And I mean that literally. We were due with our second baby in a few short weeks and I had no idea where we would be living. A new house? Our current house? An apartment? What would our finances look like? I am afraid I was skeptical until I saw Don’s magic at work.

He started on the sale of our home right away. Within two weeks we had a buyer at asking price and with several contingencies in place to give us peace of mind and extra time in the home after the sale if we needed it.

At the same time he introduced us to a fantastic new lender, Chris, and got us a fresh start on a new house. This house required some competition, but Don and company walked us through it very nicely. We felt the normal jitters but ultimately at ease.

Both the sale and the purchase seemed to be finalizing in relative sync – this was important as it involved transferring VA Loan benefits. And despite using VA the purchase closed “on-time” if not earlier. We were actually ready before the sellers were prepared to move out their last items. 100% facilitated by Don and his team. Smooth as a hot knife through butter.

To complete the story, the baby decided to show a little early, but he was just fine, and we were able to move into the new home about two weeks later.

Call Don, you will not regret it.

I am an old man (73) and have had a dozen real estate agents in my life.  Don is the most responsive, competent, and enjoyable with whom to work that I have ever had.  I’m not exaggerating and here’s why:  I’ve lived in the home I have now for 38 years.  Don was not my agent when I bought it and he as never acted as my agent in a single transaction. Translated that means Don has never even made a penny from me.  So why am I raving about him?  Over the past decade plus I have wanted to know things about my property and its value.  Don has spent an estimated 2 hours of his time each time I get an impulse to know something about my home. He has done that about 20 times in the period since I first asked him.  That means Don has given me about 40 hours (2*20) of his time to a man that doesn’t have a contract with him and the possibility of Don making a commission is still way in the future, maybe never if I live in this home the rest of my life.  That said, if I ever do list my home for sale, you know who my real estate agent will be! Good ole’ Don who allows me to bug him for data without nothing in it for himself. Don has consistently demonstrated the kind of ‘character’ that has earned my respect and loyalty for life !

I was moving from across the country and Don (and his great team) made buying a house incredibly easy.   Don knows the entire San Diego area and can give pros and cons of all the San Diego communities.  This was especially helpful as I had not spent much time in the area. He also has excellent contacts for any type of home renovations or remodeling that one would need.  All the contacts were professional and helpful. Even after purchasing a home, Don continues to share his knowledge in everything from the current real estate market to gardening tips. Don came highly recommended from a friend who has had purchased and sold several houses with him.  I would now like to pass along my highest recommendation.

I am a probate attorney in Carlsbad, California, and my practice focuses exclusively on estate, probate and trust administration matters. I have known Don Pelletier for over five years related to my practice, and I have worked with him on nearly one dozen matters, ranging from valuation of property to sales of property involved in complex litigation.

I can say, without qualification, that common through all these matters is Mr. Pelletier’s professionalism, attention to detail, courtesy and through knowledge of the subject matter, so much so, that I have difficulty rationalizing the use of any other real estate broker.

I count my professional relationship with Mr. Pelletier to be one of my greatest assets in my trust and estate administration practice.

When I purchased my new home in 1973 a young realtor placed a flyer on my front porch and continued to do so on a monthly basis.. After several years I got to know the realtor ((Don Pelletier) very well and even though I wasn’t interested in selling my house, I found Don extremely helpful in maintaining my house, both inside and outside, so that it had excellent street appearance. Over this period of time Don always presented himself as a true gentleman and I appreciated his many helpful tips to keep my house in excellent shape.  Recently, our two boys informed my wife and I that it was time to downsize and leave the maintenance of a large house to someone younger. At that point we made the difficult decision to sell our home. The long experience my family had with Don and observing his excellent sell record it was very easy to select the Don Pelletier Group to sell our home. All during the selling process , the Pelletier Group was extremely efficient in keeping me and my wife thoroughly informed during ever step of the procedure.  The house sold very quickly with just a “coming soon” sign in the yard and well above the asking price. I will highly recommend The Don Pelletier Group to my friends that may be thinking  about selling their home.

Thank you Don/Gerri for selling my home! I did not think my home would sell easy but Don/Gerri surprised me, getting an offer locked in within 4 days of listing and a super easy 30 day escrow whilst guiding me through the whole process. All of the advice received had me and my families best interest in mind,I am insanely appreciative of the level of service i received.

Don and his associates, especially his wife Gerri, did a great job in leading us through the purchase of our condo in West Mission Valley. The location of the listing and most of the negotiations were done with us 3,000 miles away in NH! Don had to educate us to the very different San Diego market and counseled us through the purchase process. He really earned his strips after the inspection identified issues that could have doomed the sale. However, he went to bat for us and negotiated a fair price for us that considered the repairs we would need to make. His team, lead by Gerri, were on top of every detail including the signing of documents electronically which they made easy. We were fortunate that Don and his team came highly recommended by family members who had worked with him for years and spoke so highly of him that we were ready for disappointment. This was not to be and we are so very appreciative of our experience with Don and his team and now consider them to be family.

When it became time to sell my mother in law’s home in San Diego several years ago, I started looking for realtors in the area. One day I saw a picture of a nice looking gentlemen on a bus bench with the statement ” I know San Diego Real estate” Please call. So I did. Met with Don Pelletier and Gerri, and listed the home with them. Don helped us get the home ready to sell and proceeded to sell it in three weeks at Twenty Seven Thousand over our asking price. Last Year I needed to sell my home in Valley Center, so there was no doubt that I would be using Don again. He did some research on local market and we came up with an asking price. Put home on Market on Monday and received two full cash offers by Friday of same week. Opened Escrow for two thousand dollars over asking price. Don kept us informed every step of the way, and even sent me a thank your gift. I have since moved to Northern Nevada and Don hooked me up with a local realtor up here. Got a great house at a great price in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. If I ever need another realtor, Don is my man.

The Pelletier Group/Don and Gerri helped me sell my home in Murrieta, CA. They did an amazing job!! They were a wealth of knowledge from the inner-workings of selling homes to the community in which my son and I currently reside. They told me of the process from start to finish and it happened that way exactly. The outcome was more than what I had hoped. I could go on and on… What I appreciated the most is that these guys held my hand through the entire process which allowed me to relax and trust them completely.

Absolutely the best realtor we have ever worked with. My wife and I have sold houses in five states and the three we bought/sold with Don and his team were the easiest. Others talk about being customer focused, but talk is cheap. Don was there from the beginning to the end of the sale and beyond. In fact we are still in touch 10 years after we moved away from California. If not for my relocation, Don would be the first number I would call if I were selling or buying a property.
Our first transaction (sale) was a challenging one and Don got it done fast and for our asking price. The second (purchase) was also a challenge. The sellers were difficult to deal with but Don and his team were able to navigate this difficult situation and we got our dream house.
Sadly, after three years, my job was relocated and once again, Don came through. Our house sold in record time and at top dollar. That profit has come in handy in retirement.
We will always be grateful to Don for all of his help and can’t recommend him strongly enough. He is easy to work with, cares about his clients and will get you top dollar.

When I decided to start looking for my new home I was wondering if I really needed the services of a real estate agent or if I could just do it all by myself. After all, in these days, the Internet give everybody access to loads of information about the housing market. A friend of mine told me ‘There’s a lot more to a house purchase than an address and a price! Give a call to Don Pelletier.’ Luckily for me I did follow my friend’s advice and several months later I am a very happy homeowner. Don made this possible for me thanks to the many years of experience, the knowledge, the broad view of the market and the impressive care for his customer.

I just closed escrow on what was one of the smoothest transactions I have participated in thus far. Don and his wife Gerri were excellent to work with on this purchase in Rancho Penasquitos. They were not only great to me as a buyer, they always had their seller’s best interests at heart and made sure this was as stress free as possible on her since she was going through a lot already. They do a ton of transactions but they still have a way of making you feel like you are their only client by always responding to emails timely and they almost always answered their phones. I am sure I will be doing business with them again and would gladly recommend my friends and family their way.

I cannot begin to thank you enough for the outstanding efforts you put forth in selling the homes in the probate estates assigned to me. Both had to be sales from hell, however, you were able to solicit buyers and close escrow despite what seemed to me to be never ending problems. Your weekly status reports and frequent telephone calls kept me up to date on your marketing progress was greatly appreciated. Further, I am convinced that your recommendations on improving the marketability of one of the homes was the key factor in its sale. Best of all, I appreciated your friendly and courteous attitude, your patient demeanor, and your professionalism. For these reasons I intend to refer my customers to your office. I am thoroughly satisfied with your service and will not hesitate to refer my clients and friends to you.

When my mother recently passed away, we were left with two houses which we needed to sell. Being a real estate Broker myself I was quite concerned as to who my family would select to represent us in the sale of both homes. They left the decision to me. I knew exactly the right questions to ask when interviewing other Brokers, as well as the necessary attributes required to get the job done correctly and in a timely manner. Selecting the very best agent possible was extremely important due to the slow real estate market. Several people told us that you had the best reputation of any agent in the area, so I had high expectations. However, after working with you, I can honestly say that the quality of service you and Gerri provide far exceeded my expectations. You kept me updated regularly with frequent phone calls, letters and faxes. As problems arose in the transaction, as they inevitably do, you brought them to my attention and offered effective solutions. I especially appreciate the way you looked out for our best interest at all times, as well as the compassion and understanding you showed to my family and I during difficult times. Homeowners in the area are indeed fortunate to have an agent of your caliber to handle their real estate transactions. You and Gerri are without peers! Your follow up, communications, attention to detail and concern for your clients is admirable. And, as if this wasn’t enough, you sold both houses in less than 30 days!

Nine months ago, we were told by a real estate attorney that our chance of a short sale were practically non-existent. But friends of our recommended Don Pelletier, whom their family had been using for their real estate needs for years. So we called him up and asked him to see what he could do, and to our great satisfaction, the Don Pelletier Group successfully completed a short sale of our home!

Don had quickly gotten several offers on the home, so even though the sale took 9 months to complete nearly all that time was waiting on the bank. At one point we had lost the buyer because of this waiting period, but Don got another offer within days and without hiccup transitioned the new offer and still made the sale happen.

Don and his group were always available to answer our questions and serve as our liaison with the bank. Maybe the most impressive part of this relationship was that it was all done long distance via email, fax, and telephone communication. I think had we gone with a different agent we wouldn’t have been so lucky. But Don’s experience in short sales, his hard work and persistence is what made the sale happen. He gave us great advice and guidance through the whole process and I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

We were referred to Don from a trusted professional and since we were first time home owners, we had a lot of questions and uncertainty about the housing market and the process of purchasing a condo.  Don did a great job of explaining to us how the process worked, his opinion on the current condition of the housing market and what types of opportunities there were for us as first time homeowners.  Don was very patient with us as we went through the process of identifying what type of condo, location and a price we were both comfortable with.  After seeing many homes over the course of 6 months Don stuck with us and finally found the right one for us!  First, Don did a market analysis to ensure we were making the right offer and not overpaying.  After receiving the market analysis and getting guidance from Don, we decided to pull the trigger and make an offer.  Don and his team quickly swooped into action and had an offer out to the seller within 24 hours – and the seller accepted!  Don and his team really showed their value once the offer was accepted by walking us through the escrow process every step of the way.  They did a great job of moving things along quickly as our goal was to close as fast as possible.  I am happy to say the condo we purchased appraised for $20,000 more than we paid for it!  In our opinion, this validates Don’s experience and negotiating skills as a business professional and realtor.  All in all, Don and his team did a great job in explaining the process to us, making the transaction smooth and getting us into the condo we wanted for the price range we were comfortable with.

Thanks Don & Team!!

We’re finally all moved in and everything put away in its correct place. Thank you very much for you and your team’s hard work and “behind the scenes” efforts. I’m still amazed that we went from looking at the condo online in early February to having the keys in May, on a short sale no less! Everybody I’ve told the story to is amazed and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about your team. In fact, I have your office information as a v-card in my iPhone contacts so it’s easy to pass along to my friends and family, although you’re anything but unknown in San Diego.

Thank you again for all of your hard work and always calling to check in, even if it was just seeing if I had any questions. I appreciate how smoothly the process went and how digital technology such as DocuSign was integrated to streamline as possible.

Don recently assisted me with a new home purchase. I am a primatologist in a very busy private practice, and Don was indispensible in helping my girlfriend and I in our new home search.  He understood last minute cancellations, calls after hours, and helping us to get everything we wanted from our new home.  He was also instrumental in helping us find exactly what we were looking for, coordinating the escrow process, and ensuring that once we had taken possession, all of our needs were met in terms of repairs, cleaning, and other necessities.

In addition, Don was an incredibly personable and friendly individual who always took the time to put a personal touch on the neighborhoods we visited.  He went out of his way to show us places that he thought we’d find interesting, pointing out local history and making the city come alive in a way we wouldn’t otherwise have known about.  I doubt that there are many more people who know more than he does about the areas we visited, and we visited several.

I cannot stress enough how valuable a resource Don was for us, and in particular how I believe that he is an incredible asset to any physician or family with a physician.  I have already recommended him to my two new incoming partners, and will do so with anyone I know who is relocating without any hesitation.

We were thinking about selling our San Diego home in 2001 when we moved to Sf Louis, so we did some research and called several Real Estate offices to ask who listed and sold the most homes in our area. You came highly recommended by Re/Max and stood head and shoulders above the best of the best of the other Realtors we interviewed. In fact, Cary says you are the single best Realtor and businessman she’s ever met, and her father and brother are Realtors!

We’re glad you kept in contact with us during the ensuing three years while we rented the house out. For financial reasons we suddenly had to sell the house F AS T, and it had to close quickly while we were living halfway across the country. We knew if anyone could do it, you could.

Here’s how fast you worked:
On Aug 4 we called you.
On Aug 5 we signed the listing contract with you.
On Aug 6 you had the house on the market in the MLS.
On Aug 12 we had the house under contract.
On Sep’14 we closed and walked away with our profit a mere 41 days after we first contacted you.

Here’s what you did for us:
• You helped us determine an aggressive listing price that would also sell quickly.
• You coordinated with our tenant to show the property for us.
• You made sure up front that the buyer was pre-screened and qualified to afford the
house so the contract wouldn’t fall through.
• Your team coordinated everything including items we probably should have done.
• Your team professionally and competently handled all the negotiating and the buyer’s
concerns so we didn’t have to worry.
• You even offered us ideas on how to invest our profit in back into real estate.
• You made us feel like family. Our only regret is not taking a family picture with you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you! We would absolutely recommend you to anyone considering selling a home in San Diego. We wish we knew more people there to whom we could refer you. Keep up the great work.

Most Sincerely,
John and Cary Woodall

All too often firms such as yours receive complaint letters:from attorneys. This is the opposite. I couldn’t be more pleased with the service I received from your agents Don Pelletier and Gerri Sekora.

I probably don’t have to tell you how difficult the real estate market is in San Diego. That is especially true when it comes to condominiums in an area known as Mission Valley. Nevertheless, I listed such a condominium for sale with Don and Gerri. It is in a rather old but nice project, but nevertheless I knew it would be a tough sell.

This listing was handled with 100% professionalism. I received constant updates from Don and Gerri, and could readily see they have a computerized system for staying on top of everything. Both were creative and aggressive in marketing the condo. They succeeded in doing so in a very short time, and the 21 day escrow went without a hitch.

Perhaps the best part of working with Don and Gerri was the way I was kept informed. I never
had to wonder what was happening, what was needed, or where things stood. They took care
of all the details, and I have no doubt that their professional and aggressive approach to
marketing and selling this property was more than I could have expected from other realtors.
I’ve worked with many in the past, but I’ve never seen team work like this.

So, my hat is off to you and your organization and especially to Don Pelletier and Gerri Sekora
for their fine work. You can bet I’ll turn to you in the future for my real estate needs.

Sincerely,

I just closed escrow on what was one of the smoothest transactions I have participated in thus far. Don and his wife Gerri were excellent to work with on this purchase in Rancho Penasquitos. They were not only great to me as a buyer, they always had their seller’s best interests at heart and made sure this was as stress free as possible on her since she was going through a lot already. They do a ton of transactions but they still have a way of making you feel like you are their only client by always responding to emails timely and they almost always answered their phones. I am sure I will be doing business with them again and would gladly recommend my friends and family their way.

We have used Don to sell and buy several homes over the past 20 years, so it was obvious that we would call him again to sell our home in Rancho Bernardo. Just like every other move Don was incredible!! We have come to trust everything that he recommends to do for selling our home or buying another. This move ended up being our most difficult since we were leaving San Diego and moving to Texas. In addition to all many things that had to be decided we also had a ton of emotional moments wrapped around those decisions. Don guided us in choosing the correct price for our home….and after receiving 7 offers we were able to sell the home for much more! Don is absolutely the best for marketing and selling any home. It seemed that whenever we were struggling to get things packed or hauled away from our old home and busy with decisions and paperwork on our new one, Don would call or just show up to lend a hand or bring a sandwich and a cold drink. We highly recommend Don!!

I was in the process of selling my property ‘for sale by owner’. It had been on the market for approximately 8 weeks. I had not received any offers at a price that was acceptable to me. Don Pelletier contacted me several times, providing advice along the way while expressing interest in representing me in the sale. I decided to list the property with Don. I was getting ready to leave the country for an extended period of time. Don reassured me that that would not be a problem. The property had been sitting vacant for a while and, as a result, needed a good cleaning. Don took it upon himself to clean it so that it would show better when buyers were viewing the property. Fourteen days after I listed the property Don produced an offer from a buyer that was at a price point that I was happy with. From the time we entered escrow it was just 26 days until escrow closed. Additionally, Don had his team hold off from sending me nearly all of the required escrow documents so that I could enjoy my time away. Upon my return I signed everything and the escrow closed smoothly a few days later! Don stayed in frequent contact with me, and provided regular updates. He negotiated well on my behalf and I always felt that he had my best interest at heart. The process was quick, easy and seamless-from start to finish! If you are considering selling your property I can highly recommend Don Pelletier.

I used Don and Gerri in the course of the past two months on both a selling and a buying transaction. I called Don remembering him from “the old neighborhood.” The first sale was a real testing ground for them – we hit a lot of negative energy from the buyers and agent, but Don and Gerri sailed through with flying colors. Don and Gerri were in regular contact – always completely accessible. It was my first time using DocuSign, and they helped me to hit the ground running with that. Don and Gerri did spectacular comp analysis, helping me to price my sale and my purchase with market knowledge. (This expertise alone is worth their commissions!). They had good references for lenders and inspectors, and between us, we closed the first escrow in 30 days and the second in 21 days. And I am not an easy client – I had specific expectations, and high standards, and they never disappointed. I highly recommend Don, Gerri and the team.

Approximately six months ago my mother decided to sell her horne and it was agreed that we try to sell it ourselves without the assistance of a Realtor. Several weeks’ after we put the For Sale sign in the yard. Don Pelletier called to ask if he could assist us in selling the property.

We told him we wanted to try to sell it ourselves. During the six months it was “For Sale by Owner” Don offered some suggestions and did a free market analysis for us. The property didn’t sell in spite of the fact that we received almost daily inquiries and showed the house to several dozen interested people.

At the end of six months, we decided we had given it our best effort without success so decided to hire a professional. At least six realtors had contacted us and offered their assistance but Don.Pelletier was our choice.

His enthusiasm, perseverance, dedication to his profession and ability to communicate with us were our reasons for chopsing him.Our confidence in him was certainly well placed. 0ur house was sold three weeks after turning it over to Don Pelletier.

Serge reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

We are writing this letter to you because we would like to let you know how pleased we were with the way that Don Pelletier handled the sale of our home. We had seen Don sell many homes in our neighborhood over the past several years, so we knew what a great track record Don had. Also, we had only heard good things from his past clients. So when we thought about putting our house on the market this spring, we knew exactly who we wanted to handle the sale of our house. We firmly believe that Don Pelletier, and the aggressive marketing exposure is what found a buyer for our home in just twenty-one days! This is quite a feat considering the current real estate market!

Don worked very hard in handling the sale of our home, and even helped us find our dream home. He was always attentive to our questions concerning both transactions, and if any problems arose he would try to solve them immediately. Either he or his wonderful personal assistant Gerri, would always keep us informed of the latest developments concerning our sale. Also, Don was always available to talk to which made things go a lot more smoothly for us.

Another thing that pleased us was Don’s amazing ability to correctly give us a market analysis which ended up exactly what we received. for our house. Don predicted our profit to the penny! This we later found out was done with his constantly reviewing of past and current home sales in comparable neighborhoods and square footage. In other words, Don really did his homework!

Another thing that impressed us about Don was his ability to cut through the FHA red-tape process. Don confidently assured us that things would be alright, and fortunately they were. We realized this, because we learned that Don only dealt with high quality professional escrow officers, loan officers and other individuals who were committed to having Don’s real estate transactions go through as expeditiously as possible. We firmly believe that if anyone else but Don had been handling our difficult transactions, we would not be in our new home today.

After having Don as our relator, we are positive that he will be the only agent to handle our future real estate transactions. Also, we will enthusiastically recommend both Don Pelletier to all our friends!

P.S. Don has even kept in close contact with us to make sure that things are going well with our new home. He even helped expedite a home buyers claim for us.

Dear Sir or Madame:

I and my company have ‘personally known and utilized the real estate services of Don Pelletier for more than eight (8) years and am honored to write this letter of recommendation.

My company is a paralegal firm specializing in trust management, fiduciary matters and probate. We work with numerous attorneys throughout the San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles counties. Over the years we have been instrumental in the sale/purchase of many properties. It has also been our misfortune to employ real estate agents who are not familiar with the idiosyncracies of the sale of real property pursuant to the California Probate Code.

Eight (8) years ago when we first had the pleasure of working with Don on a probate sale we assumed that he was just another agent who didn’t know and didn’t care about the particulars of a probate sale. Thankfully we were wrong. Don proved himself to be knowledgeable,bright and aggressive in the sale of property. He knew the aspects of a sale under the jurisdiction 6f the probate court. Furthermore where others would sit back and count their commissions and argue over escrow instructions, Don aggressively pursued the sale to obtain an overbidder and increase the net to the estate.

Additionally, it has been our pleasure doing business with Don Pelletier because he pays attention to the sale until after escrow closes thereby resolving most of the problems, if any, before we are even aware that they exist. His diligence allows us to spend time on other matters rather than having to continuously oversee his work.

We have recommended Don to numeroUs of our attorney clients and have never heard anything but praise for his work. Accordingly, due to Don’s hard work and diligence when dealing with our clients
he has enhanced our practice.

Additionally, I have used Don for the purchase of my own residence and discovered from ~ different prospective that what my clients and friends had been saying was true … Don is fantastic!

If you have any questions relative to Don Pelletier’s expertise with regard to the sale of real property, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Very truly yours,

CALLAHAN, RYAN, O’ROURKE & COMPANY

Dear Don and Geri,

Barbara and I would like to thank you both for doing a wonderful job selling our house in
less than one month at 4543 Beverly Glen Drive in Oceanside. To think that we had it listed: with another agent for over 15 months without even receiving one offer is still unbelievable and aggravating. We also appreciated your patience and conscientiousness handling our daily phone calls and the arrangements you made with various contractors’ for repairs to the-roof and bathroom. Needless to say, when Barbara and I decide to sell our home on Leathers St., we will
definitely be listing it with you.

Frances reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Dear Don:

I can’t thank you enough for all the time and patience you and your staff showed me during, what I considered the biggest move of my life.

Your expertise and layman’s explanation of the contract terms before and after the sale of my home, the courtesies extended while showing my home, and answers to my numerous questions helped eliminate all fears and stress of moving.

You and your staffwere there for me no matter what the time of day or night. With what could have been a very long and tiresome ordeal, my home was sold within the time limit I required to re-locate. When the market dropped, your advice to bring the sale price of my home within the prospective price range fully benefited all. Your courtesies did not end at time of losing.

Your office put me in touch with “The Moving Coach” which set up and confirmed my required needs of transport. Reminding me of what needed to be done to organize the necessary steps of moving, right down to supplying phone numbers, boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. Your checklist covered many things I would have either forgotten to do or never would have thought of until it was too late.

Your professionalism, kindness and expert approach made this stressful task manageable. Such concern is refreshing and should become more widespread within your industry. Please pass my appreciation on to your staff. Continued good luck to you and yours.

Sincerely,
Frances Ferreira

 

Lee reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

For many years, I have heard numerous positive comments about Don Pelletier from my neighbors and others who had worked with him when they sold their homes. I had lived in my house for years. So, when it came time to sell, I naturally called Don.

Finally, I got to sei’first hand that what everyone had told me was true! Don and his team provided excellent advice and service from start to finish! They were there every step of the way to handle the details. Any complications or problems were taken care of smoothly and efficiently. My phone calls were returned promptly, they even provided me with moving boxes!

My experience in selling my home, and in working with Don and his team of professionals could hardly have been more positive. I can recommend him highly. If you are considering selling your home, Don Pelletier is the Realtor to call.

Jerry reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

This is just a short note to let you how much we appreciated your help in selling our home at 2981 Aber St.

During the negotiations, your understanding of the current market conditions and your willingness to sacrifice were instrumental in crafting a deal that both buyers and sellers could accept. Once we were in escrow, your help in negotiating a rent-back lease and coordinating some ,of the required repair work helped the.escrow process flow smoothly. No escrow ever runs without problems but your attention to detail prevented these bumps, in the road from becoming mountains .that can kill a deal and ensured that our escrow did close as scheduled.

In closing, thank you for the great job that you did for
us.

Dear Don and Gerri,

We would like to take a moment to thank you and your team for such a great job in finding our home. As first-time homeowners, you walked us through the entire process smoothly and efficiently always tending to our best interest.

From day one, through our entire search, you “got the feel of what we wanted” and only called and showed us the homes that were exactly in our interest. We never felt pressured, and as a result, we found the best deal in our most desired area. We were extremely happy with the whole process.

Your administrative staff and financing partner were very efficient. They basically held our hand through the entire process. We felt this was
important in making such a large financial commitment. We are happy to have followed your recommendations.

If ever needed, feel free to have any prospects give us a call with any concerns they may have. (276-7976)

To Whom It May Concern:

We used Don Pelletier to sell our house in Clairemont and help us buy a house in University City.

Don was very helpful and able to figure out exactly what we needed from him. He was always prompt in returning my sometimes frantic calls and able to walk us step by step through the hectic process of finding the “right” house while selling our beloved- but-now-too-small home.

After all was said and done, it occurred to us that to be a good Real Estate Agent one must be
part psychiatrist, mind-reader, lawyer, and accountant as well as a real estate agent. Don and his team were very good at all these things and we recommend “them highly.

To Whom It May Concern,

It’s a pleasure for me to tell you about the outstanding job Don Pellitir did selling my house.

I had my house listed with another real
estate agent, and in two months, there had not even been one offer. I switched to Don, and the house was sold within two weeks! I had heard
that Don was the number one real estate agent in San Diego, and he more than lived up to his reputation.

Don has outstanding contacts, energy and work ethics. He’s also friendly and nice to work with. From the moment you list your house with him, his business is geared to go “all out” and give one hundred percent on your behalf.

I bought a hOUSe for my brother in 1990, just before housing prices fell. Which my brother was no longer able to live in the house, I rented it, but was losing money every month. I was in a bad financial situation, and desperately needed to sell the house, but I was afraid I’d only get a pittance of what I’d paid for it.

 

Patsy A reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Don got me a better price than I expected, and most important, it all happened so fast. I am so relieved to be out from under the pressure, and I

Vita reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Escrow has recently closed on a house of mine, that was not easy to sell. The escrow was extremely difficult due to problems encountered with the three buyers as well as their agent.

Through-out this long, arduous process, Don Pelletier and his associate, Gerri Sekora, were absolutely the nicest, most professional peOple I have ever encountered; Don made excellent suggestions on how to improve the sellability of the house tru a few low cost improvements.

Don and Gerri returned each and everyone of my numerous telephone calls, day and night, and despite the fact that at times I was frustrated and irate at the slowness of the buyers agent, Don was always gracious and without fail, he made suggestions and consistantly came up with solutions, including writing letters, to speed the escrow process along. GErri, on many occasions came to my home to bring papers to sign, and because I am handicapped, she’. even offered to p i ck up some items at the store for me, WOW! now that is service.

Don also kept the expenses chargeable to us as sellers, down to a bare minimum. He said he would treat this sale of the house as if it were his own, and he did. He was also kind enough to rescind the sales coordinator fee, that a guy!! and he even arranged for a courier to hand deliver my check and final escrow papers on a Friday night.

I have dealt with many real estate agents in the past, and I have NEVER been treated so professionally and with such caring and kindness that Don Pelletler exhibited. I”own three other .properties, and when the tlme comes to sell them, guess who I an going to call? – DON PELLETIER. I am fortunate indeed
to have an agent of such high caliber. He is the best!!!!!

Sincerely,

Ellen reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Don Pelletier represented me in the purchase of a new home. Not only was Don quick to put me in touch with a financial loan officer, but also held “my hand” throughout the entire purchasing process.

I provided Don with a list of my housing requirements as well as the price range
I would consider. In less than a month not only did I find a home within 2 blocks of my specified prime street location, but the house far exceeded my expectations.

In many instances, Don and his very capable, professional staff went the “extra
mile” required in order to expedite the process and ensure the timely close of my escrow (less than 30 days): I was provided daily updates of new listings, appointments were promptly scheduled, and my offer made immediately.

Don often took the time to ensure my understanding of the purchasing process
(I was a first time buyer) and on numerous occasions gave the support and confidence that enabled me to feel good about taking such a giant step.

I believe it is important to point out that although my purchase was through FHA
financing which requires property inspection and re-inspections, my escrow closed in under 30 ‘days which is normally unheard of. in FHA involved escrows. This largely was due to the hard work of Don and his staff ensuring that the FHA inspectors received what-they needed. in atirnly manner: Additionally, Carol in Don’s office, somehow managed to convince the FHA inspector to return the following day to re-inspect a minor repair to the property instead of having to go through the formal request process again which would have caused escrow to extend another 5-15 days.

I highly recommend Don Pelletier to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He provided that extra personal service that is so important to buyers and sellers when making this biq decision.. Phone ‘calls’ are promptly returned, new information is quickly made available, appointments quickly set up, and when an agreement is reached he remains involved to ensure all the terms of that agreement are met. Even after the completion of the transaction he and his staff have continued to stay in touch to check if things are going smoothly and have
continued to provide guidance when questions relating to my home have arose.

In the future, I will not hesitate ito contact Don to assist with any and all of my
housing needs.

To whom it may concern

Last summer, after living in my home for 22 years, I put my home on the market. This was not a spur of the moment decision and I gave a great deal of consideration not only to the process but also to the selection of a Realtor. I met Don many years ago as he was canvassing the neighborhood. I remember being impressed at the time with his energy and sincere nature. Over the years his flyers along with many others appeared on my doorstep. When I decided to sell, Don came to mind and was one of three people I interviewed. He promised me a strong personal focus in selling my home – and he never once fell short of that promise.

Don explained the importance of pricing the house correctly at the onset. I took his advice and my home sold in 5 days. In preparing the house for sale and in the sale process there were many frustrations. Don prepared me for each stage and worked through all the difficulties for me. He offered to assist me in purchasing my new home – my mistake was not taking advantage of the offer!

He kept me very well informed throughout the process, and every member of his team was just as courteous. Let me also add at this time, I am not easily impressed. I am a perfectionist and have high standards. I have worked in healthcare for nearly 30 years where quality service is critical. If you are looking for a Realtor who will give you efficient, professional service – caring about your welfare -look no further. Ifl would have utilized Don’s services for the transaction of buying my new home I am certain I would have saved myself a great deal of frustration and $$$. I have always believed that quality is important for success – Don Pelletier is proof!

I am writing to thank you and express my pleasure in working together with you. You have represented me in not only the sale of my home in Rancho Santa Fe, but in the original purchase back in 2009. I credit your hard work and determination to keeping the process smooth and stress-free during both the buying and selling experience.

I especially appreciate your guidance and coaching on making the right choices from staging my home all the way to what was a difficult close, due to matters beyond your control. You are personable and know the market inside and out. With your extensive knowledge and many years of experience, I never felt uneasy about the many steps of selling my home. I could never have sold my home without you. In fact, the buyer appreciated working with you during this transaction and requested your contact information to be able to utilize your expertise in the future as well as refer you to other friends and family.

I look forward, with confidence, to recommend and refer you to my family, friends and neighbors in the future.

My 91 yr. old father decided to sell his condo after moving to a place that accommodates his needs better. He asked me, his daughter, to help facilitate the sale. His choice for realtor was the same gentleman he used more than 17 yrs. ago when he sold our family home and who helped him also purchase his this condo, Don Pelletier. Even after the many years that had transpired, Mr. Pelletier remembered my dad and mom, and though his realty business now handles many exclusive homes, he didn’t hesitate to offer to help my dad sell his 1 bedroom, 1 bath condo. Not only did Don Pelletier’s office keep in contact with me sending
information, but at least weekly or more frequently, Don himself kept my dad and I up to date by phone and email on the property, advising my dad on the best ways to sell to meet his needs/wishes. I am happy to say because of Don’s advice, experience, and sincere care for his customers, and tremendous work ethic, my Dad’s condo sold quickly. Choosing Don Pelletier to sell my dad’s
property once again proved to be a very wise decision.

Without reservation, due to the tremendous professionalism, dedication, personalized attention, and ethics not always found in today’s society, I highly recommend selecting Don Pelletier to represent anyone selling or buying a home. You can be sure when my family needs a realtor in the future, we’ll choose Don Pelletier.

I have had the privilege of knowing Don Pelletier since the early 1980’s when he first started his career in real estate. Over these past years he has helped me sell two properties and purchase two others, up to and including selling my home in Tierrasanta that sold in four days getting 98% of my asking price this past September!

Don’s team reflects his high standard of excellence and professionalism that is so lacking in today’s business world. The selling process was smooth and almost problem free. As with any business transaction there is always some challenges, and Don’s team kept me well informed and Don was very attentive to what was transpiring and kept in contact with me at all times. I have personally referred Don to my friends and business associates and each one who have utilized his services have nothing but glowing praise for Don and his team.

We asked Don to help us sell the house we inherited from our folks. The place was in a sorry state of disrepair. Don appraised the property for us in “as is” condition and advised us of what we could expect the value to be if we made various repairs, clean up and improvements. He offered us referrals and cost estimates for the various options so that we could make well informed decisions. He made himself freely available to answer our questions and offer advice. He worked closely with us, taking into account our personal requirements. Don is well connected with investors. After giving the green light to offer the house for sale, Don initiated a bidding war which within hours ended up bringing in substantially more than we reckoned the value to be. After our accepting the most
generous offer, Don stayed with us to help us through the escrow and we closed and had cash in our hands within 2 weeks. I’ve bought and sold a number of houses and have never been more satisfied with the service, professionalism and personal attention than Don offered us. I wouldn’t hesitate to use him again or to recommend him highly.

Don,

I want to let you know what a pleasure it was working with you selling my mother’s house last month. As you know, last year I sold her mobile home in Carlsbad. The difference in the quality of service was like night and day. You were always prompt in appointments, phone calls and emails.

You were able to provide referrals for clean-up, gardening and contracting services. All the providers did an excellent job and were fair in their prices. You kept my brother and I advised at all
times on the progress of the listing, potential buyers and finally, the escrow process. You explained everything in a manner I could
understand and were patient when I needed further explanation. You provided your opinion, when asked, as to what we could do about fixing up the property and did not even say “I told you so” when we went against your advice and it worked out as you said it would.

I know from my last experience that it is not always anything close to how you made this work. Your professionalism and empathy made selling her house much easier on me and my family.

To Future Clients of Don Pelletier, Pelletier Homes, Keller Williams Realty,

It is with pleasure and gratitude that I submit this letter of reference for Don Pelletier as a real estate agent. My wife and I had the fortunate opportunity of utilizing Don’s services to locate a home in North Coastal San Diego County recently. His professional approach, vast knowledge of the real estate market, and expertise in purchasing a home was outstanding.

It was with much trepidation and high hopes that we entered the home purchasing experience. We had recently sold a home in which we lived for 38 years in Inland North San Diego County thus entering the real estate market with little insight to home buying in a market in a totally different locale. Thanks to Don’s wonderful and skillful assistance, we are now happy home owners in a house and location that fits our desires and dreams at this point in our lives.

We had set very high expectations and criteria for the home we wanted and Don was excellent in matching those standards with the current market inventory. He displayed a great amount of patience in helping us with our search. Don applied his years of knowledge about the market inventory, evaluating homes within our means, and insight regarding various locations and neighborhoods. His
team used an organized and comprehensive approach to help our search be successful. In addition, Don was exceptionally accessible
for questions, last minute property viewings, and guidance through each step of the process. His skil l in negotiating through various offers and finally a somewhat complicated final agreement was particularly valued.

Don Pelletier is well known and respected throughout the real estate profession. Invariably in every property that we visited or other agent with whom we came into contact, knew Don and spoke highly of him. Don took a very personal interest in our search needs and served us well. It is without hesitation and with our strongest of endorsements that we recommend Don Pelletier to you as your
real estate agent.

Please feel free to contact us regarding his services, we would be happy and pleased to share our fine experience with Don’s help
and expertise.

The first thing I would recommend for you is to start your process with a professional such as Don Pelletier. This gentleman will take you through the process as if you were his only client. in fact I thought all the way to the closing that I was his only client. I found out that he usually has up to 15 other clients at various positions in the buying process. Point is, Don and his team are available and courteous all of the time.

We wanted to take the time to thank you for the great job you did in selling our property!

As you know, I am a real estate agent myself, but because of your outstanding track record in this market we decided to list with you. Our tenants had just moved out ‘and we needed to sell the property quickly. We were more than happy when you brought us an offer in less than 30 days for OVER the listing price! Your negotiating skills are phenomenal! We had our money in hand within 60 days of the date we signed the listing.

Both you and Gerri handled every detail of our transaction with efficiency and professionalism. The weekly updates kept us well informed on the progress of our escrow, and Gerri was always available to answer any questions we had.

You provided extraordinary service and I would recommend you highly to anyone who is in need of a top notch Realtor!

Sincerely,
Bob & Mary Jane Steen

 

Margary G reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Approximately six months ago my mother decided to sell her home and it was agreed that we try to sell it ourselves without the assistance of a Realtor. Several weeks’ after we put the For Sale sign in the yard. Don Pelletier called to ask if he could assist us in selling the property. We told him we wanted to try to sell it ourselves. During the six months it was “For Sale by Owner” Don offered some suggestions and did a free market analysis for us. The property
didn’t sell in spite of the fact that we received almost daily inquiries and showed the house to several dozen interested people.

At the end of six months, we decided we had given it our best effort without success so decided to hire a professional. At least six realtors had contacted us and offered their assistance but Don. Pelletier was our choice. His enthusiasm, perseverance, dedication to his profession and ability to communicate with us were our reasons for choosing him. Our confidence in him was certainly well placed. Our house was sold three weeks after turning it over to Don Pelletier.

Sincerely,
Margary M. Grant

Dear Don:

I wanted to take a moment to formally thank you and your staff for your superb service regarding the recent selling of my home. Having worked with other agents in the past, I was pleased to discover\ that there are in fact professionals working in the real estate business. From the beginning to the end of our transaction, I found your service to be exceptional: phone calls were returned timely, appointments were kept, the mounds of paperwork were completed accurately and within required deadlines. In short, I would again use your services whenever I’m faced with real estate matters in the future and would recommend you and your staff to others without reservation.

Thanks again for all your support, both professionally and personally.

Sincerely,

Dear Don,

Just a little note to say, thank you! The quick sale of our property, we believe was due to the planning and efficiency of your organization. We (Flo and I) especially want to thank Gerri who was always attentive to our needs. The weekly updates on Fridays relieved a lot of the anxieties we had about selling our property. In our book, you and your organization are without peers.

When you select the best, you can’t go wrong.

David Y reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Dear Don:

Please accept our gratitude for the hard work and efforts that you and your office undertook to sell our home and to purchase our new home. And, please forgive us for the delay in expressing our appreciation. As you can imagine, we have been unpacking and getting accustomed to our new home, which can be a lot of work.

We certainly appreciate the professionalism that you displayed throughout, both the buying and selling process. From prior experience, we know that buying and selling a home can be a very stressful time, but with your help, we managed to get through the entire ordeal without much worry or hassle. For this, we certainly appreciate you always keeping us completely informed at each step of the transaction, your willingness to give up your time on the weekends, your determination to protect our interests, and for your knowledgeable guidance. Without your valuable advice, we would not been able to make informed and intelligent decisions. In the future, we would absolutely recommend your first-rate services to our friends, family, and co-workers. It is not everyday that we have an opportunity to work with sharp and capable people, and we want our friends and family to feel a sense of comfort in working with someone like you, especially in potentially stressful real estate matters.

It truly has been our pleasure to have worked with you, and we are glad that we have become friends in the process. Please also convey our gratitude to both Heather and Eddie. We hope all is well with both you and your family. Again, thank you for all that you have done for us.

Very truly yours,

Don and Geri,

Jeff and I wanted to “officially” thank you for all you have done for us in selling the above referenced property.

As you are aware, this was not a decision we came to lightly. Knowing that we were going to take a loss on the property was difficult, however, following through with that decision and remaining unemotional (or at least attempting to!) throughout the transaction was even more difficult. However, once we resigned ourselves to selling, we knew you were the team to help us sell it.

Throughout the sales and negotiation process, you remained true to your reputation. You were indeed with us every step of the way, from negotiating with the property manager and tenants to making the necessary repairs for a quick sale to acting as the liaison with escrow and the sellers. You provided us with sound advice and counsel, advocated on our behalf and kept us informed every step of the way.

Both of us felt that you truly had our best interest in mind, a quality which we have never found in our numerous dealings with real estate agents. More frequently you find agents who are looking for a quick sale and commission, regardless of the impact on the seller. We did not find this to be the case and are quite grateful for it!

We never could have survived this ordeal had the two of you not been our agents. Although we are still smarting from the financial aspect of the transaction, we can’t thank you enough for being sensitive to our dilemma and minimizing our pain (both financially and emotionally) where possible.

If future clients ever request references, please add our names to your list of satisfied clients.

Sincerely,
Paula Thompson

Dear Don:

This letter is a long overdue Thank You!!! First of all: We love our new home. We are settled comfortably in Bay Park, enjoying nightly fireworks shows from Sea World, and the cool ocean breezes. Sometimes, in the midst of all the excitement and stress of buying and selling homes, I am sure even the most enthusiastic people wonder if it is worth it. Two weeks after moving into our new home, unpacking most of the boxes, and finally feeling a little settled, we can assure you, it was well worth it.
.
You and your team made that hectic time in our lives 200’i’0 easier. We know you dealt with a lot of details we were never bothered about, and we Sincerely appreciate that! We felt confident that you had our best interests at heart during all the negotiations. We have recommended you to our friends, and will continue to do so, because of the confidence you instill, and the attention to detail you provided in the purchase of our new home and the selling of our old home.

Finally, we also wanted to give you a big THANK YOU for your gift certificate to Ruth’s Chris Steak House. We don’t seem to have the time to dine out as much as we once did (house projects and Elizabeth keep us happily busy), but when we celebrated our anniversary last month, we decided to go the Ruth’s Chris. We were completely amazed at how wonderful the food was – a restaurant that lives up to its fabulous reputation!
You are exceptional in your business dealings, and we wish you continued success!

Sincerely,

Randy & Lori Morse

To Whom it May Concern:

The purpose of this -letter is to provide a strong recommendation for Mr. Don Pelletier. He provided me with superior service during the purchase of my first home in 1996. I was so impressed with high level of personal service that I asked him to handle the sale -of our home when we recently had to relocate out of state.

Mr. Pelletier’s professionalism and knowledge of the San Diego market was a critical factor in selecting him as our realtor. We have referred several friends to him and they were pleased with his services.

Dear Don,

Having heard the numerous horror stories that many homebuyers have relayed to me about their home buying experience, I had some real concerns about buying my first home. I am happy to say that our experience was directly opposite of everything I had heard! Don Pelletier and his team made the home buying process a great experience.

Our questions were always answered, calls were returned promptly, and we were kept completely informed every step of the way. Thank you for creating a flawless “10” experience for us. We will certainly recommend you to our family and friends.

Mary M reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Dear Don:

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of the work that you did for me in selling the property on Haidas Ave. This has been an extremely difficult year for me since my father passed away. Being in a different state was hard, too. I appreciate your patience and help in getting things rolling as far as getting the house transferred from my father’s name to mine, and then getting it on the market to be sold.

I thank you, too, for being sensitive to my feelings, as this house meant a lot to me, since I grew up in it from the time I was 3 years old, until adulthood. It was a hard decision for me to sell in the first place, but I feel that you helped make the transition much smoother for me. You returned all of my long-distance calls promptly, and answered my questions, some of them which were probably dumb, in terms that I could understand.

Please know that I could not have done this without you, and that when my friends, the Pepper’s visit me, I will have them over for a nice dinner, and thank them for referring me to you. If you are ever in Colorado, please don’t hesitate to call, as I feel as if I know you, even though we never met face to face.

Thank you again for all of your help.

appreciated the frequent phone calls to let me know where we were in the process.

Jocelyn Pectol was especially helpful and considerate. She has such a positive attitude

I will gladly recommend you in the future to family and friends.

John C reviewed Don Pelletier Realtor San Diego

Dear Don,

We want to sincerely thank you and your team for your efforts in support ofthe recent
sale of our home in 4S Ranch. Your experience, professionalism and commitment
throughout the process instilled us with complete confidence in your team, provided us
with the freedom we needed to focus on other aspects of our relocation, and ultimately
led to a very successful outcome.

We spent a considerable amount of time considering our options when we decided to sell
the house. We interviewed several agents and also researched options to sell the house
on our own. When we first met you impressed us with your obvious mastery of the
marketplace, depth of experience and the polish of your professionalism. But mostly we
were impressed with your honesty and ability to listen. Your answers to our questions
and concerns were thoughtful, patient and genuine. It was no contest. We knew we you
were the one we wanted to represent us in the sale of our home.

We were never disappointed with our decision. Not only did you continue to provide the
wisest counsel and highest level of service throughout and even after the transaction, you
also gave us the opportunity to work with your team of stars who made every aspect of
the process manageable despite our restrictive timeline and busy schedules. Without
them we would not have been able to turn a necessary focus to the many other details of
our relocation.

You exceeded every target we had established. We sold our home faster than we thought
possible (in approximately a week), received more from the sale than we had forecasted
(the highest price ever for our model), and closed escrow in perfect time (having
navigated us through several tense moments). None of this would have been possible
without the assistance of you and your hardworking team. Thank you. We extend our
highest recommendation to anyone considering your services.

With great appreciation,

John Donovan and Minsun Chang

To Whom It May Concern:

My wife and I had the great pleasure of working with Don Pelletier and his staff while
selling our home in San Diego in the fall of2005. We are sticklers for quality service,
and Don and his employees delivered in every possible way.

Among the notable achievements of Don and his group:
• We were out of the country for most of the time that the house was on the market
and bids were taken. Don and his staff were incredibly accommodating and
professional in dealing with us, though it could not have been easy.
• Don helped us successfully navigate several tricky issues in the sale, including
unexpected clauses from bidders and the buyer’s repair requests.
• Stacey, from Dan’s staff, went to great lengths to help us while we were out of
town, even going out of her way to get a house key to a family friend that was
going to use our home for a weekend while we were out of town.

Don has reduced the complexities of selling a home to a systematic, repeatable process
that makes his business incredibly efficient and puts him in the perfect position to deal
with any wrinkles that arise during the sale.

If you sell your home without any surprises at all, then maybe you don’t need him and his
team, but when the inevitable surprise pops up, you’ll be incredibly thankful to have him
on your side.

I recommend him and his business without reservation and without qualification.

Sincerely,
John Girard

To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to highly recommend Don Pelletier and his group for buying or selling your home. Don is very personable and is truly interested in what your needs are concerning buying/selling your home. He makes the purchase and selling process a very pleasurable event. All the paperwork and footwork involved are completely taken care of while your only concern is to look for that new dream house. Don worked closely with us every step of the way while we looked for our new home, and at the same time selling the house that we were living in.

Many issues arose during this process, and numerous questions had to be answered, as is with every purchase of any new home. But Don streamlined the whole process. He and his associate, Jocelyn, worked with us on every issue that arose and kept us informed constantly about any other problems that may need our attention. Each and every step of the way Don gave expert advice on how to proceed during the process, but ultimately he let the choice be ours. We found Don’s advice to be the best there is.

We purchased two homes through Don during the years and will never go anywhere else. We had an experience in the past with another realtor that left us wanting for Don’s expert service. There is no comparison when it comes to buying a home; Don Pelletier is the best, period!

Sincerely,

Dear Don,

We would like to thank you for making our recent home buying experience a pleasant
and successful one!

As first time home buyers, we visited numerous real estate web sites to gather information but we were still a bit anxious about where to start. After visiting your home page and reviewing your profile, we decided to contact you in the hope that you might be able to help us. To say that you helped us is an understatement. From your initial response to our .
first e-mail to the closing of escrow and beyond, your service far exceeded our every expectation.

Of everything that went right, we especially appreciate that you were patient and responsive. Regardless of whether we had a simple question or a request to view a property, we consistently received a timely call back.

In addition, we can’t say how reassuring it was that you were calling and keeping us up to
date, even when we didn’t have any questions! Your comments and suggestions were
right on target and guided us through the entire process.

Please convey our thoughts and appreciation to your assistant, Deanna, and to Amanda at

Dear Don,

We want to express our thanks to you and Geri for assistance in selling our horne and purchasing a new one. As you recall, we were quite hesitant to begin real estate transactions. Old real estate dealings had left us scared, saddened and financially strapped. You not only gave us expert advice, devoted personal attention and excellent service, but you calmed our fears as well.

As we sit here in our beautiful new horne, we are reminded of all you gave to get us here. You did a wonderful job marketing our house. You called us weekly to give updates on every aspect of the sale and purchase. (We miss those calls!) You even had paperwork delivered to our door for our convenience. We are confident that your service is the highest quality available!

There is no question in our minds that everyone should use you, Don, for any real estate deal. We also feel that anyone not using you could be making a serious mistake! Any real estate moves
we do in the future we will contact you immediately! Please feel free to use our names as super satisfied clients when you are dealing with prospective buyers or sellers. We also want you to know that we will refer you to all our friends and family.

Too good to be true ….. “

That is the only way to describe Don Pelletier
and his wonderful team. Call it “wishing on a
lucky star” or the “work of Angels”, but it was
only by chance that my husband and I met
Becca and were instantly headed off on a
whirlwind real estate transaction with The Don
Pelletier Group.

I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to sell my home
and purchase another, but with Don’s good
advice and his genuine concern for my family
that only comes from being a father himself, it
soon became clear that it was the best thing to
do for our family’s future.

Not being one to trust so easily, I found myself
curiously comfortable in the knowledge that Don
and his team were genuinely interested in
helping us along the sometimes overwhelming
path of buying and selling a home in such a short
amount of time.

My daily contact with Becca, Jocelyn and Stacey
was delightful and fun. They were more like old
friends who had come along for the ride to
support a “sister”, instead of “my realtor’s
support staff’. Had it not been for their
professionalism, proficiency and organization, I
promise you, I would not have made it through.

How can I thank you for everything that you have
done for us? You made it all too easy. I
appreciate all of the little gifts that would show up
on our doorstep – a good book, movie tickets,
and a moving day basket. You’ve sent us
cookies, a housewarming plant, and gentle
reminders throughout the process that showed
us that you really cared about us and were never
far away – Nobody does it like you!

How can I thank you for your supreme customer
service that no other realtor would think to
provide? Boxes to pack, a carbon monoxide
detector, well-timed reminders for us to secure
homeowner’s insurance and change over our
utilities. Now, even month’s after the
transaction, I’m reminded of your generosity and
goodness again as I received a copy of our
closing statement for tax purposes.

“It’s all these little things that make your
company the best that San Diego has to
offer.”

To anyone requiring a referral, I can simply tell
you that I find Don to be honest, sincere, and
genuinely kind. Please know that along with
these highly sought after virtues, he is very
knowledgeable and quite an expert in his field.

His staff is a family that works well together to
provide their clients with superior service. They
are a reflection of a great leader, and the
cohesiveness of this team illustrates that they all
share the same ideas and commitment towards
a common goal of excellence.

Don once wrote to me, “It is my goal to have
you as a client for life.” To Don and his
awesome team, I would like to respond with an
overwhelming “Congratulations – you’ve
reached your goal.”

I offer my highest recommendations for The Don
Pelletier Group

Dear Don:

We are writing to express our sincere appreciation for your efforts to sell our home at 13783 Torrey Del Mar Drive in San Diego this past summer. In the past 20 years, we have sold four different homes and worked with a wide variety of realtors. While living in Scripps Ranch, we had become good friends with a number of realtors in the area. As a result, we were not entirely unfamiliar with the process of working with a realtor. However, we do not believe that we ever really understood what a realtor can and should do for his or her client until we met you. In our opinion, the scope and quality of your service was truly outstanding. We attribute our success in selling our home at a price that exceeded our expectations largely to your marketing strategy and the efforts of your exceptional staff. Without these resources at our disposal, we are convinced that the process would have taken much longer with a less than satisfactory outcome.

We also wish to thank you for your efforts to help us through the last few weeks of the process. We realize that even under the best of circumstances selling a home can be stressful. As you know, attempting to negotiate with our buyer to rent back an additional week was difficult to say the least. With everything else going on in our lives, we were unprepared for their demands and reluctance to accede to our requests. However, your cool demeanor and willingness to work with both parties helped to resolve a situation that could have easily resulted in litigation of some form.

We have and will continue to serve as a source of referrals for your services to other homeowners interested in buying or selling a home. You have a genuine understanding of the market and of clients and their needs. You exemplify the highest standards of a realtor and the real estate business.

Warmest regards,

Dear Don:

I wanted to send you a letter thanking you and Stella for selling our townhouse in Mission Valley. After seeing how run down the place had become, I was not expecting to get much more than what we had paid for it four years ago. Your ability to set the listing price at the correct level, ‘and your ability to negotiate that price even more, allowed us to sell the townhouse for over $15,000 more than what we paid for it.: Also, thank you for making it clear to the buyer’s agent that we wanted a quick close. It would have been even less than the 31 days if the buyer’s agent had not delayed informing you of the repairs the buyer requested.

Nancy and I also appreciated the-numerous times Stella-came.to our house to drop off paperwork, pick up paperwork and pick up keys. She also handled the renters very well. She as very good at handling what couldhave become an explosive situation between the renters and myself. Elite Escrow also did a great job informing me of the progress of the sale. Karen Viens was available most of the time, and when she was not she had very good assistants that answered any questions I had.

Thanks again for a great job. I will definitely recommend you to friends who are
interested in buying or selling real estate.

Dear Don and Stella,

I want to take this opportunity to thank you again for all your efforts in the purchase of my
home. Asa first-time home buyer, I had countless questions and anxieties, all of which were
handled by you with tireless patience. You both made me feel like I was your most important
client, even though it is obvious you are incredibly busy.

The property I purchased was aggressively sought after and had been on the multiple listing service for less than 24 hours before three competitive offers were made, including mine. The sellers and their agent later told me that the most important factor in my offer being accepted was the fact that Don Pelletier was my agent after the close of escrow, I was told specifically that there had indeed been higher offers but that your reputation and persistence convinced the seller to accept my offer instead. You worked day and night to push my offer through, and I know you are the sole reason why I now have my house.

I am simply thrilled with my new home. Our relationship did not end at the closing, as both
you and Stella have been very helpful in referrals to contractors, handymen, painters, and cleaning services. I have already recommended you to several friends and will continue to do so very enthusiastically I cannot describe how wonderful it was to work with both of you’ and how ecstatic I am in my new house.

Thank you,
