Eric Polansky is an excellent agent that has been around the business for quite a while. His general real estate knowledge and attention detail took the stress off me while searching for my new house. He is an honest person and wants the best for his clients. Eric is very accessible and was there to answer questions along every step of the way. It was a pleasure working with Eric during the process and would recommend his services to others looking for that dream home. - Brian Mcgloughlin, Carls September 2016
Art took alot of his personal time out of his life to find us a home and he did not stop until we found it. I have and will continue to recommend Art because of his honesty and most important his professionalism that he showed to us as our real estate agent. - Luis Esquivel San Diego September 2016
Kathy Higgins helped me with my first home purchase in 2010 and with the subsequent sale of that home in 2016. The purchase involved several months of searching before selecting the right place, and Kathy patiently and wisely guided me through that process. She then oversaw all of the details of the home sale, as I relocated across the country almost immediately after the house was put on the market. Kathy's expertise, patience, and diligence are truly impressive, and I am grateful for everything she did to make both the purchase and sale experiences smooth and successful. - Jamie Schorling, Baton R September 2016
Renata was great to work with. She was friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond what was expected. She worked very hard to make sure I got what I was paying for in the condo! - Fiona, San Diego September 2016
I highly recommend Cathy Burciaga. She took a very "lived in" house and helped transform it into a palace. She took things step by step and helped us get the house to a pristine level with very little expense. Even though I overwhelmed myself as a single mom working full time with five kids, she always said not to worry. We took things one step at a time. When I needed to talk to her she was ALWAYS available and made a very seemingly daunting task a piece of cake. Thank you Cathy! - Karen Ruffin, Ramona, Ca September 2016
We used Steve Hirsch to purchase a property several years ago. At the time, there was a low inventory of condos in our desired area to consider. Steve helped convince us to broaden our search area, and we have been very happy with the condo and area that we purchased ever since. Steve was very good at listening to our "wants" in a home and did not waste a lot of our time taking us to places that did not meet our requirements. - L Lantz, San Diego, Ca. April 2016
The experience was great we definitely worked together as a team to get this one done. We both had the same goal in mind and worked together step by step to get there. I hope to do more transactions with Pat in the future. - Vince Caviglia Pacific B March 2016
Leigh Ord is a great broker who always makes sure that her clients get the best deal possible and that their interests are protected during the contracting period.
Leigh is very personable and the best interest of her clients is top of her priority list.
The whole staff at Century 21 1st Choice Reality is very supportive and on top of things. - Silke Thode, Castaic December 2015
We have known and used Century 21 1st Choice for 20 years and respect their expertise. Our sale was handled in a very professional manner and we are pleased with the results. - Mike And Judy Formico, E November 2015
Ernie sold our previous condo. Even though we had to take it off the market for a short while due to contractor mistakes Ernie was professional and patient and resumed his great customer service as soon as we were ready to sell again. Presentation of both condos was impeccable. Ernie is trustworthy, he does what he says, patient and kind.
Property got several offers in just a few days. It was a fast transaction with a good buyer. We got more than we were expecting and that was a key factor.
Ernie is awesome. Due to the quick sale many people have asked about him. - J&m Taylor - Hemet Ca May 2015
Helpful and kind and easy to work with.
Helpful and showed concern for seller and buyer. - F J Rohr Murrieta, Ca May 2015
Shelly walked me through each step of the process of purchasing my second home in Del Mar with great patience, professionalism and ethics. She paid extraordinary attention to detail, making sure nothing fell through the cracks and no stone was left unturned. Other professionals involved in my real estate transaction commented that Shelly went far above and beyond what was expected or required of her.
Shelly is a consummate professional in every regard. She provided continues information and updates regarding the progress of my real estate purchase. She kept in close contact with all other professionals involved in the transaction. She was easy to reach and always returned calls or emails in a timely fashion. She addressed any concerns or questions I had with patience and a high level of knowledge and understanding. Purchasing my second home was a highly positive experience because I had such a talented, conscientious and tenacious ally in my corner. I highly recommend Shelly Schreiber to anyone considering purchasing or selling a home. - Dr. Kara Kornher, Del Ma April 2015
Having only lived in San Diego for a year, finding a realtor who was not only knowledgeable about the area but helped me to feel comfortable with purchasing my first home was crucial. Cynthia made me feel comfortable after meeting her for the very first time. She took her time on Thanksgiving weekend to meet with my family and I and listened to us and answered all my questions. Cynthia always communicated in a timely response and was very reliable at all times. Cynthia has been professional and realistic while being a wonderful advocate for me. I felt very comfortable calling her at any time and asking questions, to which she always answered thoroughly and advocated on my behalf. I have already referred Cynthia to many family and friends, especially co-workers. If you are looking for someone with great energy, knowledgeable, professional, a great advocate, understanding, etc., Cynthia is your person!!! - Candace, La Mesa March 2015
Eric worked very hard to sell our house. He went out of his way to resolve problems. We appreciate all the work he did. - Dennis Moreen, Altadena, September 2016
Kathy Higgins is an excellent real estate agent. She is very knowledgeable in her field. She is very honest. She is on top on of things from step 1 and thru out the whole process. She takes the sell of your home personally. She makes sure that you are getting everything you should from the sale. When you are buying she checks out everything to makes sure there are no hidden surprises. She really cares about her clients. She deals with other agents very well. She is prompt on everything. She doesn't miss phone calls or emails. I would not use anyone else - Valorie Truderung September 2016
Renata is the primary reason we chose Century 21 - she has been our agent numerous times and is always professional, knowledgeable, careful with legal detail, negotiates with flair and in my opinion, is an A+ Agent. - M Kathleen Guerrero March 2016
We've worked with Cathy Burciaga on four home purchases and three home sales. She is excellent to work with and will do whatever it takes to make the customer happy. Cathy is both professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely be working with her again in the future. - Kevin & Melody, Fallbroo September 2015
What can I say about a man who sold my home in three days? Steve is the best realtor I've ever worked with. He is a super pro, savvy about the market, intelligent about buyers and sellers, always thinking proactively and just plain fun to work with. He photographed our home, put together a well written flier and placed our home on the MLS. The Century 21 sign had barely been placed into our front yard when the home got immediate attention. We had an offer (well within our range) within three days of "going public". We countered (even higher) and the home sold. Once sold the entire process of inspections, escrow, title company paperwork, etc. went as quickly and smoothly as the sale.
My wife and I cannot be more happy and will be using Steve to buy our next home!

Pat Krebs, Michelle James and Vicky Campbell stepped in at a difficult situation and did an excellent job. Not being in the area, made everything difficult, but the house was sold for the asking price quickly and without too many issues. When a problem occurred near the closing, they resolved the issue and the closing went on as scheduled. - Rod Mackinnon February 2016
I would use Gary every time.
Every detail was taken care of and communicated on time. - John Gemmill October 2015
