Why Work With Us?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
When we were living in California and decided to sell our condo, you took care of every detail. You were communicative, thoughtful and proactive. We were so impressed with your expertise and professionalism. Thank you!
We can't thank you enough for helping to make this happen for us. What a gift you've been for us!!
I caught your listing of 16 Alveston in the New York Times and wanted to compliment you for the really terrific marketing. I can't remember ever seeing such a thoughtful, well-designed, complete and engaging online presentation of a property in my 26 years in our profession. I own a boutique brokerage in downtown San Diego with 30 agents and staff. With your permission, I am going to pass a link to your listing on to each of my people as a fine example of a serious marketing effort. If it weren't so sublime, it would be, well, SURREAL. (Love that in your branding, btw!) Please pass my comments on to your seller. I hope they know what a great job you're doing on their behalf.

Trisha, We appreciate all of your help, your patience, your warmth and your humor in selling us a home. We have loved working with you and want you to know that you are a very special person. Please stay in touch - visit our home. We'll let you know when we are ready to buy another one!

We were floored by the tremendous marketing effort you executed, including a custom website for our home.

Dear Trisha and Jay, This is a much belated thank you for your great job in selling our house on Moss Hill this summer. Your understanding of the market, the neighborhood, and especially the anxieties of the homeowner in giving up a house one loves while simultaneously preparing to move across the country were welcome indeed. You made the whole experience so much less stressful.
In more than thirty years of buying and selling six homes we have worked with a fair number of real estate agents. We have never had more pleasant, more effective and well organized representation than we have had from the team of Trisha Solio, Kathy Power and Jay Balaban. Your service exceeded our expectations. The Surrealtors went far beyond the service of any other real estate agent we've encountered. They smoothed our way through the various steps of the process, hand delivered documents, kept the buyers and attorneys on track, kept us advised of developments every step of the way and were unfailingly calm, cordial and prepared during every step of a fairly complicated process.

The Surrealtors deserve an unqualified A++! I would recommend them to anyone who plans to buy or sell a house. Doing business with them was entirely pleasurable.

Dear Jay and Trisha - Thank you for the wonderful job you both did. We feel lucky to have worked with you. It was a much better experience than we were accustomed to from our first real estate experience. We also enjoyed getting to know both of you on a personal level. We miss talking to you on a regular basis. You were right, we found a house we're totally satisfied with. We absolutely love our new house and we appreciate your sincere guidance. We'd like to have you both over soon. We'll be in touch. Thanks again

Buying real estate is not a science. Sure, there are endless forms to sign, deadlines to meet, and prices to negotiate, but in the end it is a purely emotional decision. You're buying a home, somewhere you will raise a family and entertain friends. Trisha and Jay take care of the science while nurturing the emotional side of the process. In our case, they didn't let the frustration of dealing with a less than professional listing agent interfere with the love we had for our dream home. They handled numerous phone calls, faxed documents, and e-mails, often at a moment's notice. They are professional, experienced, and well organized, and not only could we not have done it without them, we no doubt will never buy or sell a home without them again.
