Justin is wonderful to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about all areas of San Diego county and extremely patient with you during your home search.

We definitely will recommend him to our friends looking to buy and sell homes in the area.

We just bought our first house and can honestly say it wouldn't have happened if it weren't for Justin. Justin went above and beyond to make sure that not only everything was in line for us, but to make sure my family and I were taken care of and in the loop throughout the whole process.
While house hunting, Justin was extremely knowledgeable and very good at figuring out our style preferences and making lists of houses for us to go view along with the houses we found.
Once we got an accepted offer is when Justin really started going above and beyond. There were several complications during escrow (from a ridiculous appraiser to my father in law passing) and Justin was there throughout to make sure everything was taken care of for us and that the whole process was as painless as possible and we now own our first house thanks to Justin.
Anyone in the San Diego area looking for a realtor must get ahold of Justin!

My fiancé and I moved to San Diego from Atlanta in January. We were connected with Justin through our Atlanta realtor, and they couldn't have referred us to anyone better.
We flew out for a weekend of house-hunting just 2 weeks before the move. We were totally unfamiliar with the city, and desperately in need of help. Justin devoted his entire weekend to showing us properties. He quickly understood what we were looking for, and showed us countless condos that fit our description while providing expert advice on each building and neighborhood. We ultimately decided on an East Village condo. Two weeks later we moved in, and we've been very happy here.
Justin made the whole process as easy and seamless as possible. With his insightful knowledge of restaurants, lounges, and events around town, he offered way more than I expected from a real estate agent.
I highly recommend working with him, *especially* if you're a young professional interested in an urban lifestyle.

I was referred by a friend to work with Justin and it was the best decision I've made. He was very educated about San Diego and what this city has to offer. He spent all of his time making sure my wife and I were satisfied. Its pretty clear that Justin Santolaya is San Diego's pick for real estate due to his Hospitality and sheer dedication to the client.
Thanks Again Justin!

Justin did a great job assisting us with our home. I highly recommend his services when looking to buy or sell real estate.

Justin helped us navigate the emotional process of selling our first home - we could not have done it without him. He sold our home for a great price and closed escrow within 30 days. He combined a wealth of knowledge of market trends as well as diplomacy and tact when dealing with buyers and brokers. He always looked out for our best interest, especially in dealing with difficult potential buyers. Justin shows a diligence and excellent work ethic that far surpasses industry standards: quick response to concerns and questions, favorable resolution of seller concessions, leveraging multiple open houses to create interest, and navigating the complicated escrow process. I am enthusiastically recommending him to my friends and family who are in the market to buy or sell a home.

We had a wonderful experience working with Justin. He is no nonsense, no pressure, and he really listens to your wants and needs. He is very knowledgable and friendly. He eased the stress that comes with buying a home. He has great connections in anything real estate before, during, and after you purchase a home. Moved in to our new home this week and he is definitely invited to our first BBQ!

We live in Washington, DC and vacationed in San Diego three years ago. It only took a couple days to realize that San Diego is where we want to retire. We popped into an Open House to see what one gets for their money. Justin was conducting the open house and impressed us a great deal. Over the next three years we communicated with Justin, told him our requirements, wants, and wishes. He continually sent us listings to look at that met our goals. As a result, we bought a home earlier this month in a very nice neighborhood in the Del Cerro area. It meets every need we could possibly have and more.
Having bought/sold homes many times, Justin is one of the most knowledgeable real estate agents I've ever met. His knowledge of the business is overwhelming. Justin's knowledge of the San Diego area is extensive. His negotiating skills are over the top. We purchased our home for considerably less than the asking price. When I told Justin what we wanted to offer which was really low-balling it, I never expected the seller to accepted our offer, with minor adjustments.
If you're looking for a knowledgeable real estate agent who has high standards, extensive knowledge of the San Diego area, outstanding negotiation skills, and great contacts for after the sale, look no further. Justin's your man!

My husband and I decided to move from Mexico to San Diego a few months ago and began searching properties on-line. More than 20 agents contacted us and fortunately, Justin Santolaya was one of them. We felt somewhat overwhelmed at the response and were at a loss as to how to choose the best agent that could meet our needs. Justin stood out to us immediately because he was so knowledgeable and was not at all "pushy" like the majority of them were. He also speaks fluent Spanish, which was an asset for us since my husband's first language is Spanish.
We began our search with Justin and immediately felt comfortable with him, as if we had known him for many years, but he never crossed that professional line with us. Having witnessed Justin negotiate on our behalf with his mild-manner but firmness at the same time, was truly impressive. One could not ask for more in an agent.
We found our dream home, but owning another home in Mexico, the financing became very cumbersome and at one point it appeared as though we were not going to be able to make our dream a reality. Justin was extremely diligent in the process and encouraged us not to lose hope. He introduced us to Frank Thomas with Movement Mortgage, a Mortgage Company that works hand-in-glove with Keller Williams Realty. Never once was there pressure put on us to obtain the loan with this company, quite the contrary in fact, and several loan packages were laid out to us. It didn't take long for us to realize that Movement Mortgage was our best option, and in tandem with Justin, we were able to purchase our dream home with very little stress.
Justin is the type of person that one can totally trust and respect as a business man, and also someone that one would like to keep in their lives as a friend and is an excellent resource. I would not hesitate to recommend Justin Santolaya for all your real estate needs.
