Thank you to all our wonderful clients for these kind words...

We were extremely happy with our home buying experience. As first time buyers, this process can be quite daunting, but with the assistance we received, it was quick and easy. We were able to find a home we love!

I am still in shock.... We... are still in shock! Buying a home with
you by our side was an amazingly smooth and short process. From the
moment we met you and saw our first home together, both Doug and I
truly felt like we had an advocate on our side. You inspected aspects
of the homes that we would never know to look for and not once tried
to sell to us like a car dealer.... you had the amazing ability to
guide us with LOTS of patience and helped us pick the most amazing
~ Rosie and Doug ~
Your patience and dedication to our needs in our home buying process made every step of the way a wonderful experience. You answered every question we had, no matter what time or day it was and always had a smile on your face. You helped our family find what we so proudly call our home. Our feeling is you have became a part of our family and are always welcome in our home. I have nothing but wonderful memories and positive things to say when it comes to Mr. Alex Yapjoco. He is top notch in my book!

When my wife and I started looking for our first house, we werenít sure if we were really ready to move out of our apartment and commit to purchasing a home, especially given the high real estate prices in San Diego, so wanted a more casual, hands-off realtor. We had briefly tried another realtor before Alex, but he was too pushy and aggressive for us. When looking for a new realtor, we chose Alex because we had already been using his MLS search listings webpage. Alex had one of the best, most comprehensive MLS search listings available. It was free to use, and he did not immediately call you or hassle you if you registered. It was fully customizable, allowing you to search for several different amenities and in very small, local areas Ė not just by zip code. In addition, you could save the search criteria and have updated results automatically e-mailed to you. Alex knew we wanted a hands-off realtor and respected our needs, and we never felt pushed or pressured by him to buy a house or to bid more than we felt comfortable with. Instead, Alex was very patient and agreeable, let us offer what we wanted for the purchase price, even if it was well below the asking price, and was willing to show us any home we wanted. In fact, Alex showed us more homes than I can remember over a period of about eight months! I think many other realtors would have abandoned us after showing us that many homes over such a long period. Alex even showed us homes that several other realtors wouldnít, such as short sales and homes sold by the owner. He also showed us homes over a very large range of asking prices and never asked to see a preapproved loan statement or questioned why we were looking at such a large range of pricings. He also didnít mind when we frequently changed our minds about a house or what we were looking for in a house. Alex wanted to make sure that he found the perfect home for us and didnít want us to settle, and he was willing to do anything to help us find that perfect home. And, while we appreciated Alex for his laid back attitude, he was thorough, fast-acting, responsive, diligent, knowledgeable, hard working, and aggressive when it came to getting the job done. If we wanted to see a house, Alex was immediately available to show us the house. If we wanted to make an offer, but wanted advice on how much to offer, Alex immediately e-mailed us comparables. When we decided to make an offer, Alex immediately had the papers drawn up and e-mailed to us, had us electronically sign them, and then submitted the offer. Any questions we had, Alex was able to answer them or did the research to come up with an answer. When we had an offer on a short-sale, Alex constantly worked with the sellerís bank to try to get the short sale approval to go through. When we needed contractors, inspectors, etc., Alex always had the best recommendations at hand. Alex also did an excellent job of working with difficult sellers and keeping deals on track and moving forward and also working with the sellerís agent. We finally did find a great house that had everything we wanted and was at an excellent price (below the sellerís listing price). Given that Alex was able to adapt to our style and personality, and find us the perfect home (even though we seemed reluctant to actually buy a house), I would imagine that any buyer or seller would be happy working with Alex. I could not have been happier with Alex as an agent and I highly recommend Alex, 5 out of 5 stars!
~ Jim & Vanessa S. ~
As first-time homebuyers we were completely oblivious to the workings of the real estate market, much less a market as hectic as todayís, but with Alexís extensive knowledge and networking the process was made much easier. Alexís constant commitment to professionalism made searching for a new home an enjoyable experience. As an agent he is attentive, hard-working, honest, and most of allÖpatient. We always felt like a priority and never felt pressured. Not only would we recommend Alex to others, we already have.
We are so happy in our new home, but sad to see him go. Thank you, Alex!!"

I am a veteran of home sales and purchases. The most recent is my 6th. Alex is the most patient, accommodating, thorough, tireless and courteous real estate professional with whom I have dealt over the last twenty years. He possesses uncanny calm in the face of complicated and frustrating situations. A real professional!
~ Gary M. ~
We hope that your Holidays are as blessed and happy as ours, We cannot say it enough but Thank you Alex for all of your hard work, you are special and you help make the world a better place. Thank you for our new beautiful home!
~ Byron & Maricela O. ~
From the first moment we spoke to Alex we were amazed at his ability to answer all of our many questions. He treated us like we were his only clients and was fully dedicated to helping us find the home of our dreams. In just three months we closed escrow on a place that far exceeded our expectations. The saddest part of the deal was having to say goodbye to our realtor, who had started to feel like family. Alex and the many people he had referred us to along the way, have made the home buying experience so memorable! It was certainly some of the best months of our lives!
~ John, Andrea and Annabelle W. ~
Alex is great! We didn't know very much about
the real estate market in San Diego until we met Alex. He helped us
find the perfect home in a nice neighborhood, then helped us come out
on top when the vendor had several offers to choose from. He was able
to help resolve every challenge we encountered. Alex's skill and
knowledge made all the difference.

Being a young couple in the Military lifestyle my husband and I
thought that we would never find a decent home (not too expensive) for
us to purchase. I started out with an agent from a well known company
and she was the worse. She made me second guess even purchasing a
home. She made me believe that she was all about the purchase and not
about our well-being. During all of this we were tied up in an escrow
that we no longer wanted to deal with and she really didnít help us
get our money back. All of the frustration turned into upset and I
didnít know what to do. So I decided not to use her again due to my
experience. Finally, I received a phone call from Alex (right on time)
and I explained to him that we were still tied up in an escrow because
the seller is not giving us our money back. Alex got his information
and gave him a call and within 3 days the seller signed a release. By
Alexís expertise and professionalism I knew that he was about his
clients and not the purchase.

We live in the Bay Area but had to purchase a home in San Diego within a short period of time. Alex guided us to the perfect house, and completed all the details on the purchase in a very professional and timely manner. We have purchased seven homes, but have never had such great service.
~ Alene and Dr. David P. ~
Your services were first rate. As investors, we
understand every deal will not go smooth. However, with Alex Yapjoco, the few bumps we experienced were quickly smooth
out and our transaction closed expeditiously. Due to certain
circumstances, we were ready to pull out of the deal, but Alex hung in
there, kept us abreast of every situation and kept the communications
lines flowing. That was most important for Monique and I. Turned out
to be a good buy after all.
~ Everett and Monique S. ~
My first home buying experience was a pleasant one due to the efforts and expertise of Alex Yapjoco. From start to finish, Alex provided a smooth and a clear understanding towards the goal of acquiring a home. Some of the wonderful services Alex provided above and beyond the call of duty were:
Finally, Alex Yapjoco is a likeable honest sincere person. I never felt pushed or pulled in any direction to serve an agenda or interest other than my own. I recommend his services highly in the pursuit of home ownership!

I was always the one who thought that I would never be able to buy a house in Southern California. I found this website and saw properties in the areas I was interested in living and submitted a request to view some of them. He replied back in very short order and within a day I was standing in the living room of a condo I never thought I could own. The reality is, I'm in the military, I had 2 car payments and currently rented, so getting financed seemed impossible. Well Alex referred me to a mortgage broker that worked miracles for me and was able to secure my financing.
From the day we first met to the moment that our bid was accepted by the sellers, we had only worked with Alex for a month! In that time we looked at dozens of properties, and drove all over San Diego, not to mention the late night phone calls. I mean Alex really worked hard for us, and I was very pleased with my experience. I've referred everyone I know that is looking at homes to him, and when it comes time to sell, I'll be calling him back as well. Thank You so much Alex for helping make my family's dream a reality!
~ John, Amy & Breanna B. ~
Working with Alex was great! Every silly question I could come up with was answered quickly if not immediately, and accurately. I could not have asked for a better real estate consultant. I have more than a few friends in the real estate business and no one performed like Alex. We just told him what we liked and he found several options. We ended up with a great deal very quickly and if not for Alex it would not have happened. The search for a home was made easier with his emails and web page. If you want a full time real estate professional Alex is your guy.
~ Perry T. and Nancy D. ~
When we started looking into finding a home we got lucky in finding Alex. He got us into a home past our expectations and was there for us even after we moved in. You not only acted as our agent, but also our friend. Thanks Alex!
~ Sam & Nicole ~
Thank you for your excellent service and looking out for my best interest. You listened and understood what my needs were and made getting into my first home a pleasant experience all around.
~ Katherine F. ~
Alex Yapjoco made my first home buying experience very pleasant and enjoyable. Working with Alex was great! He answered every question that I had and and he made the entire process very smooth and much more enjoyable than I expected.
~ Hanh N. ~
Not only did I receive a great offer on my home, you also helped me find a wonderful home, beating out other buyers in this crazy market! Thank you for your expertise and for making the transition seem effortless.
~ Bill K. ~
Although we had a friend that was a realtor, we didn't feel comfortable asking that friend to do the things that you did for us. You went the extra mile to find us our dream home!
~ Krishna & Pria ~
Itís been a few months since we first met you and we havenít regretted it one
bit. It was the best thing that we ever did when thinking about purchasing our
first home for our new family (baby "Jake" is due June 15th, 2004).
With very best personal regards,
We had tried three or four realtors over a six month period to help us find our dream home. I was referred to Alex through our mortgage broker. Within 24 hours we had found exactly what we wanted. It was miraculous! Not only did he find us a house, he helped us through the escrow process. Alex is #1 in realtors.
~ Sandy W. ~
We are all moved in and mostly unpacked. Our home buying experience was an absolute pleasure! From our first meeting you were professional and courteous. Alex knew the right questions to ask the sellers and us. Alex was quick to answer our questions and if there was one he was not sure of, he found the answer within a day.
Alex made sure that our expectations were met and our escrow went extremely smooth. There were no problems with any part of our home buying experience. Alex, you are one of a kind! You made our first dream home a reality! We are looking forward to the day that our new daughter gets to enjoy her room.
~ Marco, Elise and Maddie ~
Thank you so much for all your help. Melissa is all moved in and everything seems to be going smoothly. You made our real estate purchase in San Diego seem effortless. From the time that Melissa contacted you through your website to the final walk through and close of escrow, I felt like you paid attention to all the details and put a lot of effort into making the transaction easy since we were out of the area. We would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to make a home purchase in the San Diego area.
