“When thinking of a making the biggest financial decision of your life, you'll want someone you can trust, learn what you want and be able to make the process as seamless as possible. That's what Stella and Vanessa from Reef Point did for me and my fiancé. They listened to what we wanted and were patient until we found exactly what we were searching for, after multiple offers that were not accepted we pushed through and found a perfect house. We also worked with their recommended lender who ensured we closed in about 21 days.
If you are looking for someone who understands the military and is professional, efficient and gets the job done the way you want it; use Reef Point”
“I recently purchased my first home after receiving military orders to Whidbey Island, WA. Although not in his area, I called John Reeves of Reef Point Realty to help me through the process. Within the same I day I contacted him, John provided me with not only an outstanding local realtor for the area I was moving to, but also a lender who got me the best possible financing I could hope for! John is a first class people person who genuinely cares about helping others get through what can be a very stressful process. Through his amazing military-friendly network I was able to make my homebuying experience a true pleasure. He and Reef Point are a company you can trust, which is a hard thing to come by these days. I can't recommend Reef Point Realty enough. Thanks John! “
“We used John Reeves and his stellar team at Reef Point for the listing of our previous home & purchase of the new one, and plan to continue working with Reef Point on different investments in real estate. In a very stressful scenario, the team at Reef Point guided us through the transactions with grace and confidence... John and his team were available to walk us through the tough questions, they fiercely negotiated amazing deals on both transactions, and most impressive to me - they continue to reach out years later, & ‘check in’ on us, which is nice - it shows they care. It’s no wonder to me they’re #1 in San Diego Real Estate - their ‘treat you like family’ mentality is the real deal, and after close to 19 years in the real estate space, I continue to be impressed and delighted with the smarts, consistent service & love that John Reeves & Reef Point use as the recipe to service their clients at the highest level... well done guys!!”
“Our experiences with John Reeves and the Reef Point team have been nothing short of excellent. John, a Marine veteran, couples exceptional client service with a deep knowledge of the real estate market, negotiation, sales, and marketing. He "gets it" in an industry where many do not. As a fellow vet that's had the privilege of moving 4 times in the past 10 years, I've had a wide range of real estate experiences - and none come close to comparing.
John was instrumental in developing a customized plan to help us sell our home, resulting in a list price far higher than we originally expected...and then selling it for above list after only two days on the market with multiple no-contingency escalating offers. I won't divulge John's methods, but this was a multi-stage strategy of which John was 100% the author. It was genius, and it sold our home for a record price in record time.
Similarly, John was a tireless advocate for our interests when negotiating the purchase of our second home. Not only was he with us every step of the way during the purchase, but he worked tirelessly with us to ensure that the seller met all of their obligations.
To put it kindly - my wife and I are not easy clients. We are demanding, and have high expectations of anyone we work with. With that being said, I highly recommend John and the Reef Point team without reservation. He combines the tenacity of a prize-fighter with the instincts of a savvy businessman. While we don't have any plans to leave anytime soon, when we do, there is no doubt that we will rely on The Reef Point Team again - and there is no doubt that John will get us the price we deserve. “
“I cannot speak highly enough about the Reef Point Real Estate Team. We literally listed our home on the MLS on July 26th, 2018, had ONE open house weekend, received 6 offers, after a few counters accepted an offer, had a 19 day escrow, and closed escrow on August 21st. 2018. We started and finished in literally 27 days. Our funds were received the following day. This is unheard of. Most escrows are 30 days and our whole process was done in 27 days. Trust their process. They all know what they're doing. I'd like to thank the entire team; not just Reef Point. The whole team includes Annie, Thomas, and Nicole at Prominent Escrow, Jacob at Cross Country Mortgage, then of course Rebecca, Yvonne, and John at Reef Point. They all work together so smoothly. The process was effortless. We can't thank you all enough. I highly recommend all of them. You won't be disappointed. “
“John Reeves and his entire team at Reef Point are consummate professionals and leaders in all aspects of San Diego Real Estate. From the beginning to the end, every interaction was timely, professional, and provided value to our goal of selling our house! John personally came to our home and spent the afternoon explaining the services his team could provide for us and answered all of our questions as first time home sellers. We worked primarily with Aja and Yvonne, both of whom provided top notch service and were always available to answer questions and keep the process moving. My wife and I never felt pushed to do or accept anything we were not comfortable with as they facilitated a very smooth transaction. Jason, their risk manager, was also extremely helpful, making himself available night and day to answer questions and ensure we had the appropriate information to fill out the stack of online documents throughout the process. You can stop your research here, this is the team that will gladly address your Real Estate needs. Thanks John and Reef Point team!”
“Rebecca was amazing to work with. She really listened and understood my situation and needs.I honestly did not think home ownership was possible. She guided me in every step of the way from finding the right lender and staying persistent in finding the perfect home for my son and I. She was a tough negotiator, getting and offer accepted $4000 under list price and a seller credit of $6,000. I am now a proud first time home owner investing in my future and no longer throwing away rent. I'm grateful to Rebecca. I highly recommend Rebecca and her team. She gets the job done and I am so happy!”
“Raul is seriously one of kind. From the moment we sat down with him after having a not so well experience with another agent, Raul blew us away. He was always available at any time of the day.. he sat down to meet with us at 9 pm for the first time due to our hectic work schedules. I feel like I bombarded him with questions the entire process but he always walked us through everything and made us feel extremely comfortable to ask what was on our mind. He made the home buying process a breeze and I couldn't be any more grateful! Not only do you hire an amazing agent, but at the end you have an amazing friend for life. Thank you Raul for everything! “
“Before going with Raul, my husband and I met two other realtors. Without a doubt, we went with the right one. Raul told us early on that this was his passion, not just his job. At every point, Raul showed us how he meant this. During our process, Raul always put our needs first and was transparent with us. He was easy to communicate with, extremely detail oriented, thoughtful, and attentive with us. Whenever we faced a roadblock on our road to home ownership, Raul made sure to check in with how we were feeling--he was not just focused on helping us buy a home. Both my husband and I highly recommend Raul Lopez. An individual like him is hard to find. “
“What can I say, Jesse and Vanessa were a dream to work with. I'm a hard person to please because I have high expectations of what I want and how I want it done, that didn't stop Jesse or Vanessa from getting me my dream home! yes there was up and downs during this whole process but they always pulled through no matter what and I would recommend them to anyone”
“It's always a pleasure working with Bill Morton. Over the last 10 years he has helped us purchase 2 homes and sell 1. This year he helped us sell 1 and he made it the most stress free experience ever. He answered our questions anytime day or night, even on during a holiday weekend. He was able to sell our home within days and got us more than what we were asking for. Without hesitation I would recommend working with Bill and his team at Reef Point. We can't thank him enough for his help and experience in the buying and selling of homes. “
“Sarah Carlson and the Reef Point Real Estate Team did a fantastic job in purchasing our new home!! From the beginning Sarah made sure we stayed on track with the process. This was my first time buying a home with my mate/boyfriend and we had a lot of questions and concerns. Sarah and her team kept us informed and updated every step of the way. Sarah really knows her stuff and she is a dynamic woman who is able to take care of her kids and still manage to get the job done. If anyone is looking for a great real estate team Reef Point is definitely who you should have help you through this process. Thank you so much for making the next chapter in our lives the happiest in becoming new home owners. “
“I have been working with Shelly Wilson to find a home here in Carmel Valley. While I still have not found the perfect home as of yet I just wanted to say Shelly is a pleasure to work with. She is highly knowledgeable of the market areas she works in and has one of the best communication styles I've seen. Her follow through is second to none. She always goes the extra mile, not just stopping at the sometimes obvious answer, to provide opportunities to her clients they may not have imagined. Her patience in working with me through this process is highly appreciated. I would highly recommend Shelly and the John Reeves Team to anyone looking for a top notch real estate professional to work with.”
“I was introduced to John Reeves and his team a little while back when we decided to look into buying our first home for our family. I must say that this team was extremely knowledgeable and patient. I believe we looked at close to 30 houses before finding an off market property that ended up being perfect. John Reeves and his team helped make the process extremely smooth from initial offer to inspections and repair negotiations. When was all said and done I am more that happy with the service I received. I would recommend anyone looking to buy or sell their home consider the John Reeves team.”
“My husband and I are first time home buyers. I can't tell you how many open houses we had been to and how many agents tried to work with us. I never felt comfortable with any of them. This was such a big life investment for my husband and myself, we wanted to be with someone that we knew had our best interest at heart. We wanted someone with integrity, who conducted business honestly, not hiding any important information just to push a sale through. As soon as I met Michael(Mickey) Moreau, I felt completely comfortable. He was knowledgable, forthright, and extremely positive. He had all of the qualities we were looking for and was also a joy to be around in helping us navigate this inherently stressful process. Michael gave us guidance and insight, steering us clear of bad neighborhoods to ensure the home not only met our criteria as a starter home for our family, but also as a long term rental investment. He made the process as easy for us as possible, doing his work thoroughly and coordinating with our busy schedule. I cannot recommend Michael enough!”
“If you are a first time home buyer like me, Reef Point is definitely the way to go. Allison Norgaard helped me find a perfect home on just the 2nd day of house hunting.
Reef Point is very time efficient as well. I was able to close on my home in 27 days. What really speeds up the progress for me is being able to sign most documents electronically from my phone.
Throughout the whole process I never had an issue with communication with anyone from Reef Point or their recommended Mortgage lender Cross Country. If I ever had a question they were always quick to address it.
“There are few times in life when excellent service stands out. Sarah Carlson and The John Reeves Team are that experience for me and my family. Whether it is listing a home, selling a home, or handling referrals to my friends and family, I have found this team offers the best care and service. When someone is selling a home, you want them to treat you like family. You want them to manage your assets the way they would for family. These are your people. Caring, compassionate, and professional. They go up to bat for their clients every time. Thank you Sarah Carlson and The John Reeves team for always putting your clients #1!!! “
“We saw, heard and met John Reeves of Reef Point Realty at a First-Time Homebuyer Seminar co-hosted by Reef Point. Whilst we had owned a house in the UK before emigrating to the US, this was our first experience with buying a property out here. The presentation from John was great enthusiastic and came across genuine. John was happy to chat to me for a few minutes afterwards and answer my questions. We met Farah Egli from Reef Point at the same evening event and set up a meeting to visit with her. We were a little nervous going into the meeting as we weren't quite sure what to expect (and had our own pre-conceived notions of realtors). However Farah made us feel welcome and comfortable and gave us an informative, useful presentation herself of the current San Diego market and she is clearly an experienced, knowledgable realtor. We enjoyed working with Farah on our home buying journey... she was very patient with us and gave us lots of great advice on properties we viewed. Once we had found the right house, Farah (also shout out to Lindsey Isenberg in the office as well) was all over the detail and the process of it and kept us well informed and helped us every step of the way to a successful close of escrow. We are sure she did lots of work behind the scenes on our behalf to make this as pain free as possible. She met us at our new home to hand over the keys and gave us a beautiful gift. We would recommend John Reeves, Reef Point Realtor and especially Farah Egli!”
“It was an outstanding experience overall. As a first time buyer, they provided us the best team in my opinion. Natalie our senior loan officer who worked hard with the underwriter was very persistent and had to deal with my attitude at some point, showed her professionalism all the way. Jacob, the very calm and positive attitude loan officer was transparent with all the numbers. Jennifer our agent, acted as the mediator most the time were excellent in answering all our questions directly. Vanessa were also great in keeping us updated all the time. Thanks Scott and John for providing us the best team. “
“Reef Point Real Estate was a pleasure to work with. I went to their veteran loan seminar, and we were off to the races. In their seminar, they boasted a 19 day escrow close, and 19 days later, I had keys in my hand. My realtor from Reef Point Real Estate was Natalie Frantz, and she was very professional. Natalie walked me through every detail, and she constantly communicated with me. Natalie is also a veteran, and her knowledge of the VA loan process was amazing. I felt at ease knowing that I had a trustworthy veteran working in my favor. Interestingly, when I mentioned Reef Point to a few veteran colleagues, those colleagues also had good things to say about Reef Point. Natalie absolutely gave my home purchase a personal touch, and I highly recommend you seek her out! “
“Laura and James Miramontes When we first started to look for a home we had gone to the different realtor, who we did 4 different offers and they couldn't seem to get it done. So, we put our search on hold. Then about a year or so passed and we started seeing post on Facebook for Greg Kaczmarske and Reef Point Real Estate, we would just pass them by at first. Then we had a flood in our rental we decided it was time to go. We headed up to Ballast Point thinking that we were going to keep and open mind and "Hey" if it didn't work out then at least we got a free dinner (not gonna lie). Well to our surprise, not only did they listen to what our concerns were and help but we are in escrow for our first home. Laura and James Miramontes who were there to help have been absolutely fabulous, they listened again to what we had to say and then went out and found us the perfect home, they really went above and beyond to find it and then deliver it! Thank you, James and Laura you are the best. We couldn't have asked for better realtors. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Joe, Rachel, Josie, and Maddie.”
“John Reeves and his team is a professional group that will help you with all of your real estate needs. I referred a client to them to purchase a house moving from Toronto, Canada and not only they gave him a 5 tar service but the also helped him save $33,000 in the hot seller market there. You want a team that has systems and leading edge technology when representing you in a real estate transaction. They care about their clients and get results. If your looking to buy or sell a home you need to use John Reeves and the Reef Point Real Estate Team!”
“If you want to find your dream home, look no further than Samantha Leach at Reef Point Real Estate. She was so supportive and understanding during the whole house buying process and made sure we were comfortable with each decision every step of the way. She treated us like family and we couldn't be happier with the home we found. Thanks to Samantha, the dream of owning our home was made a reality! “
“Nikole Ferrari and Shane Stokes are what makes Reef Point Real Estate THE team you need. TRUST ME! At our first meeting, Nikole gave us a crash course in home buying and explained everything that comes with it, we had lots of questions and thankfully, she had all the answers! A few days after we found our dream home my husband went out to sea. My anxiety shot thru the roof at the thought of having to make such a huge transaction by myself. I spoke to Shane and told him i was close to a breakdown and ready to back out and wait until my husband was back, Shane calmed me and promised he would take on whatever part of this process I could not handle, and he did. He totally kept his promise. Once we put in the offer, Nikole has was tremendous help with all the inspectors, was a fierce negotiator with really smart and strategic suggestions. Nikole gave us peace of mind knowing that she was really firmly fighting for us to get what we wanted with our deal. Nikole demonstrates passion about her work and a drive to make her clients happy. She is very diligent, resourceful, and highly experienced with all details of the process. She really listened to our needs and requirements, she took time to really understand our family and its needs and was always ready with answers and feedback specific to us. She was incredibly fun and easy to work with. She's friendly, funny, professional, and smart. She made the process for our first primary home transparent and smooth. Long story short, I would highly recommend (and constantly do) working with Reef Point. Nikole and Shane absolutely went above and beyond in helping us with the purchase of our first home! Your hearing this from me, the person who has backed out of a home purchase TWICE before because of stress and anxiety. ME, the new happy and proud home owner thanks all to Nikole and Shane.”
“Farah is a delight to work with. She understood our timelines and concerns and worked on our behalf while negotiating with the sellers. We bought it at a higher than listed price but we are completely satisfied with her guidance. It was a smooth process and we closed as per the timeline without any issues. As a first time home buyer, I had no surprises and closed as planned with ease. Highly recommend her and the Reef Point team.”
“Tania was near a miracle worker in our search for a home. We were looking for a unicorn of a house and she worked tirelessly to find one for us and showed us many options. We are incredibly happy with the house we picked. Not only did she walk us through every step of the process as first time home buyers but she negotiated everything we wanted to get out of the house with the sellers. We are thrilled with Tania and can't wait to give her more of our business in the future! “
“My wife and I are first time buyers and we were eventually going to buy a home but were in no rush to do so. Once we went to the Reef Point VA loan seminar at the Stone brewery in Liberty Station that all changed. After one month and gathering all our information Tricia, our realtor, John, our loan officer, and the rest of the Reef Point Realty team had us looking for places that best suited us and that were in our price range. Tricia was very attentive to what we wanted but also helped and gave us feedback on what would help us in the future for renting or selling. John and the rest of the team constantly engaged with us on what needed to be completed and answered any questions that we had, even ones we may have asked over and over again. We ended up closing on our home in three weeks, right before the Christmas holiday. I know that this was due the genuine care and great work ethic of the Reef Point Realty team, and we're very thankful for that. If you're ever interested just give them a call or go to one of the VA Loan seminar's at the Stone Brewery. Free beer, free food and free VA home loan advice, it is as good as it sounds! “
“I am in the military and received unexpected orders where I had to move my family of five in a very short period of time. It was a potentially stressful situation where we had to make an important family decision that could impact our future. My wife and I weren't from the area, and didn't quite understand the real estate market. My wife wanted to rent, and I wanted to buy, but we both were unsure of what the right answer was. So we decided to contact John Reeves at Reef Point Real Estate, which turned out to be our best decision. He made us feel comfortable about the decision we were about to make by completely analyzing our options without putting pressure on us to make a decision we weren't ready to make. The team at Reef Point worked with my family on our own terms, allowing us to make the right decision that would set up our family for success. We ended up buying a house and we couldn't be happier with the home-buying process that Reef Point created, enabling us to make the right investment for our future. I would recommend Reef Point to not only Military members, but to anyone who wants to work with a team who truly cares about you. “
“If you want the BEST then go with Reef Point Real Estate! Don't we all want the best especially when it comes to purchasing a home? After doing a ton of research on finding an agent in San Diego, I came upon John Reeves. From the initial contact to the end of purchasing my home Reef Point Real Estate deserves to be called the BEST TEAM in San Diego. John and his team made me feel at ease with my home buying experience. I was blown away at John and his teams knowledge of the market. They listened to my needs and wants and at the end found me the perfect home for my family. At every showing I was provided with a market analysis of the area and the rent ability of the homes we were seeing. If you are looking for an honest and ethical agent choose John Reeves and his team! “
“I'm a first-time Active Duty military home buyer and I feel lucky to have run into this real estate company. I had very little idea of what I was doing but Stacia and the Reef Point team held my hand through the entire process. They helped me find, buy, and close within 20 days; I didn't think the home buying experience could be so easy. I now highly recommend them to all my fellow shipmates.”
“This experience purchasing a home was very smooth and easy. I found Reef Point Real Estate through monthly seminar promotion on Facebook. I decided to attend the event. During the event I was just blown away about the possibilities of being a home owner. At the end of the event I was paired up with Tricia(best agent ever)! She was completely 100% honest with me and what I could afford. Also, she didn't even pressure me, into getting a sale right away. That's something I appreciated the most since this is my first home I am buying. When I was ready to buy, she was right there with a great open line of communication. It didn't take long to find a perfect home for me and my family. She got it right on the first try. Very unheard off, once my offer was made and accepted, she followed up all the way to closing! I am extremely pleased with Tricia and Reef Point. When I get another house I'm going through them! “
“Jesse was amazing from start to finish! We weren't necessarily looking to move but saw a house we were interested in and decided to give Jesse a call. He provided us with detailed info about the house and neighborhood and also took us to look at others in the area. We fell in love with a different house and at Jesse's suggestion got our house on the market. His team was incredible!! We had several contacts helping us with each part of the process almost immediately! His associate Kinga helped us "stage" the house with great suggestions on how to present our house in the best possible way. Jesse held an open house for us about 4 days later and we had a full price offer the next day! Jesse was able to negotiate with the agent of the house we wanted to buy and also with the agent for our buyers through several twists and turns. There were stressful moments but we always knew he had our backs and was doing everything he could for our best interests while helping us feel calm about it all. We moved into our new house only 7 weeks after seeing it! This was our first time selling a house to buy another and it couldn't have been a better experience. The team work from Jesse's real estate office to the escrow companies to the mortgage broker (love Casey at West Coast Funding!) made for an extremely positive transition.”
“Raul is the quintessential real estate agent. He showed me close to 20 homes before I found "the one" and never once pushed me to buy something that didn't fit my goals. In fact, two days before closing told me we could walk away from a home and he would be more than happy to stick with me if I wasn't comfortable. To me, that was just further proof that Raul was in it for the love of the job -- not the check. The most important thing to me with Raul is that he gained my trust. Making a process that could be painful smooth as butter. He is someone you can place your faith in, sit back, and know for a fact that he will find your home. Could not have asked for a better real estate agent! “
“Reef Point Realty delivered. My wife and I have a growing family of 5 and we wanted to make serious moves towards independence (and some equity too). We stumbled upon a a free seminar from Reef Point Realty and met Raul Lopez. Raul was very professional and maintained great communication throughout the whole process. From late nights, to early mornings - Raul never failed to get us answers and/or explain all of the legal jargon in this process. Raul's tireless effort definitely embodies the dedication and patience to which Reef Point operates. Raul went the extra mile to ensure that my wife and I (as 1st Time HBs) were educated on the entire process, double/triple/quadruple checking to make sure we were comfortable with every move. My wife and I are proud to say that we not only found a great realtor in Raul but also a great friend. Thank you Raul (and Reef Point) for making the 'impossible', POSSIBLE.”
“Was looking for a Condo in Pacific Beach area, with a very limited timeframe. Was connected with Nikole Ferrari of Reef Point Real Estate. She was awesome, she quickly found several condos that met our needs. We looked for about two weeks before finding the right one. She was very professional and thorough in getting us through the process. We closed yesterday and received the keys today. Thank you very much Nikole! “
“Tricia was amazing! My husband and I went to a VA seminar about 4 months ago and they opened our eyes to so many opportunities we weren't taking advantage of. So our thoughts of possibly buying a house lead to aggressively purchasing a home. We got so lucky we got Tricia to be our relator. She was professional, personable and knowledgeable! She knew her stuff and knew what to ask for and when. This was very helpful to us as we were first time home buyers. As we looked for homes with Tricia she grabbed all the needs and wants we were asking for. With in a month of looking she found our place. We've now been in our home for about a month and are so happy! Thank you Tricia and the Reef Point Team for opening our eyes and finding us our first family home! “
“Stacia O'Shea and team at Reef Point Realty are absolutely TOP NOTCH. I can't think of any other team that works as well together. From staging, to photos, to Web presence, to getting people interested (even BEFORE the open house!), to helping us thru the selling process, they were there for every question or situation. We have used them TWICE and both times were a TREMENDOUS success! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! If you don't use them you probably will loose money! “
