What My Clients Say

Harish M

Seller
‟We would highly recommend David and Julie Butler to help you find your next home or sell your existing home. David and Julie helped us with both the purchase of our new home and the sale of our home. Every open house or private showing with David was filled with insights about the community, the builder and the neighborhood. For instance, after an open house in Via Montecristo in Del Sur area, David drove us around the neighborhood parks and talked about various events sponsored by the HOA in that community. On a separate occasion, while on a drive to an open house, David took a detour to Stone ranch elementary school. He mentioned how great the after school programs were at the Boys and Girls club next to Stone ranch elementary. He then asked us to time our drive to the open house, so we could gauge how long it would take us to drive to the school. After every open house or private showing, David would ask us for our feedback, listen patiently and take notes. When we were ready to put in offers on homes we liked, David and his team started prepping for the sale of our existing home. David and Julie had a team of interior designers who helped stage our home. David kept us in the loop when we got offers and guided us on what could be our next best step. Finally, when we accepted an offer, David was able to set up a rent back agreement with the buyer. This gave us enough time to close on the new house. When we wanted to get some work done on the new home, David helped set up a lock box so our contractors could get access to the home. Overall it was a pleasant experience and if we had to do it again, we would definitely go back to David and Julie Butler - hands down the best service, the most professional and personable team we have met!” Read More ▾

‟Dave and Julie Butler helped us every step of the way. We used the Butler's to help us buy and sell our houses. It all happened so quickly and they assisted us every step of the way. I am convinced that if we didn't contact them we would not have been able to negotiate so quickly to buy our house and then turn around and get top dollar for our old house. Dave knew the housing market inside and out. Having just sold multiple houses in the area (Carmel Valley, Torrey Highlands, Santa Luz, 4s Ranch) he knew exactly what we should offer when buying the house we are currently in. He had all the comps and made well thought out recommendations, never pushing us into a number we were uncomfortable with. After quickly purchasing the house, we realized the old house needed to be sold. Julie and Dave made some great affordable suggestions as to how to get our old house into selling shape. After just one weekend showing we had multiple competing offers. In the end, we got over asking price. Dream come true. But it always comes down to the details and the Butlers and their team are on it. Whether it was use of their moving truck, suggesting the use of their stagers or giving us a list that helped facilitate the move, they were on it. They also work with a very good team of escrow, title and insurance agents that made the process smooth. I cannot recommend them highly enough” Read More ▾

‟David & Julie were very professional. We felt confident in their selling strategy and were impressed that our house sold within days of being listed, noting multiple offers which resulted in selling our house higher than our list price. We enjoyed working with them!”

‟David Butler, Butler|Gore Realty Group, just closed a sale for me in San Diego, California. I have bought and sold homes in Phoenix, Long Beach, La Jolla, San Carlos, and Las Vegas. Never in all of my years of buying and selling have I ever experienced a more market aware and better experienced realtor than David. He brought the whole organization in and made the entire transaction one that proved to be the best I have ever experienced. David saved me money, dealt with needed repairs, redecorating and even staging to help me sell for the best price. I live in Palm Desert and once David got involved my trips to San Diego couldn't have been shorter and more infrequent. If you want to save time, save money and have an exceptional selling experience, call David Butler of Butler|Gore Realty Group. You won't ever regret making that call.” Read More ▾

‟We worked mainly with David Butler and he was fantastic. The pricing strategy and staging were right on point. We had the unfortunate timing of putting our house on the market just before the pandemic hit, so quarantine and distance restrictions made it a challenge to attract interested buyers. Despite that fact, David stayed engaged throughout the process and worked tirelessly to pursue new offers, as well as helping us prepare the house for sale and adjust to market changes. Ultimately he got us an offer that we were happy with. We would definitely work with David and his team in the future” Read More ▾
