What People are Saying

"Dear Brett: Thank you so much for helping us acquire a wonderful home in La Jolla for my daughter, Tiffany. You made the transaction as painless as possible, helped us get it at a great price, and she loves it. You and Pacific Sotheby's International Realty did a great job! "Brett is a former collegiate and professional tennis player who brings his competitive instincts to the real estate field. He is very outgoing. He is well-known in the community. He is a hard worker. And he communicates well. If you use him, you will find he follows up right away, no matter what the subject.” -William J. "Bill" Kellogg President of La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club

"It was such a pleasure working with Brett who got all the answers to our real estate questions. My wife and I lived in our Muirlands property for over 50 years and there were many emotions involved. I would highly recommend him and his support team who made it all so easy and painless. Thank you Brett."-Dr. Don Schutte

""The moment we listed our Muirlands house with Brett, I had a really good feeling success was approaching. Brett is such an amazing team player. During the listing process, experience, skills, and enthusiasm dramatically increased our confidence in his ability to sell our house. Both his workmanship and experience have not only helped him succeed in selling our house, but have also previously connected many families and individuals to their dream homes, and I know he will continue to do so to many more. I definitely highly recommend Brett as a realtor to anyone." -Peter and Jennifer Lin

"Brett is the kind of person who will do whatever it takes to achieve a great result. He always goes above and beyond what is expected and he delivers on his promises. Brett has an extensive knowledge of La Jolla.” -Peter A. Anastasi, CPA, La Jolla, California

"Brett Buffington is an excellent realtor who made the experience of buying our first home successful and enjoyable. His positive and upbeat attitude reassured us that we would find the dream home that we were looking for...and we did! Brett was a valuable resource throughout the process of buying a house. He made himself available to us at a moments notice, especially when we needed to see a house that just hit the market. He understood our needs and didn’t try to sell us on properties that were not a good fit. He also provided valuable insight to construct an offer that was accepted by the seller. Brett was the ideal realtor to us for many reasons- his reliability, trustworthiness, his commitment and eagerness, his patience in listening to our questions and concerns, and his encouragement and reassurance that we would find the right home. Brett is passionate and dedicated in all that he does. He is one of those people who you want to surround yourself with- he is optimistic, positive, and has a good attitude about life. We would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a house in La Jolla or he surrounding areas. He is extremely well networked and dedicated to the community. We are so grateful for Brett’s guidance in buying our dream home." -Brian & Nicole

Dear Brett –We wanted to express our gratitude to you for all you have done for us in the last couple of years. Not only did you help us find our dream home (one of a kind!), but you have become a good friend as well. Pat and I, our kids and our two dogs, Dugan and Finn, are so excited about our new La Jolla Shores beach home. Being from out of state and having very specific criteria, we knew it would take a special realtor to help us find our home. We had been looking for several years without success. The fact that you and your family have lived in and been an active part of the La Jolla community since 1969, coupled with your caring, outgoing personality, gave us complete confidence in your ability to find our special home. We knew we were in good hands and the results speak for themselves - a perfect home in a perfect location. You are truly one of a kind. We appreciate your professionalism and all the acts of kindness and of service you performed for us. You went above and beyond what most realtors do for their clients. We’ve bought and sold homes all over the country, so we know how unique you are in this field. But, most of all, we value your friendship. It was our lucky day when our friends referred you to us. We look forward to playing tennis, relaxing on the beach and enjoying the La Jolla lifestyle – thanks to you! -Paula and Pat Broe
