We are so grateful to have had the great fortune of working with Raquel to help us find the perfect home for our family in Rancho Santa Fe. She did everything and more to fulfill our very specific needs regarding the school district, equine activities, proximity to trails, and of course, comfort and beauty of the home. Always attentive and with a great attitude, she stood side by side with us throughout the entire process. She made us feel like we were her top priority and always advised us with our best interests at heart, even if it did not benefit her bottom line. Honest, professional, responsible, and hardworking, what more can you ask for? Than...— Buyer
We knew we wanted to move to Rancho Santa Fe but had no idea who to hire for the job. My husband is very skeptical when meeting salespeople, so I knew I had to get it right the first time. I followed a few Instagram accounts of realtors in the area and always found myself coming back to Raquel. I liked that she lived in RSF and has excellent taste. We gave her a call, met at her office the next day. She is well connected in the community and was ready with homes to view the next day. She thawed my husband’s steely attitude by the time the first showing was over. Excellence in attention and service! So glad we found her.— Seller
Raquel was a tremendous asset in selling our home. Her thoughtful approach and marketing helped us to not only sell our house quickly but also to get several offers. She never missed a showing insisting she could show potential buyers the property best. We worked with Raquel in both selling our home and buying our new home, all within the same month. She never let the pressure get to her even when things got tough. She was helpful, compassionate and always kept us up to date on what was going on. I would be happy to work with Raquel again anytime and highly recommend her.— Repeat Client
My wife and I recently worked with Raquel on finding a home for our move to California. We viewed over 40 homes with her spanning five different counties including Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego. We spent a lot of time together, and she was nothing short of amazing. We located our dream home in San Diego while still living out of town and she took care of everything in our absence. She was there for us every step of the way and went above and beyond what we ever expected. By far the best agent we have ever worked with. Thank you, Raquel.— Buyer
Very helpful, knowledgeable, and very professional, Raquel was a pleasure to work with and made my first home buying journey a simple and most pleasant experience. She was very patient with me as a first-time buyer and never made me feel insecure about asking my many, many questions. She walked me through the buying process knowing how important it was for me to understand every step. She is the consummate professional and we are so lucky we found her. We love our new home!— Buyer
Raquel’s refreshingly friendly attitude and up-to-date know-how stood out for us after meeting a few pushy, outdated, and even rude salespeople while viewing open houses. We viewed her property on multiple occasions and she was kind, sincere, and welcoming every time. You could tell she took pride in her listing and showed it beautifully. I kept her info and will be sure to ring her up if we ever need a realtor again.— Open House Visitor
Best realtor in town! Amazing knowledge of San Diego 100% dedication to her work! One of the things I liked most about working with Raquel is that she personally showed me around the area, so I could see the neighborhoods I might be living in. I recommend using Raquel’s services to anyone who is looking for professionalism, respect, great service, and a friendly face in the San Diego area.— Buyer
Raquel is kind, intelligent, and real. Most importantly, she makes you feel like you’re her first priority. She showed me a few properties in Rancho Santa Fe and we actually decided on a property, went into escrow but due to seller issues, we are back on the hunt! She has been so patient in this entire process and we really appreciate all her hard work. Thanks again for everything, Raquel!— Client
Raquel is easy to reach, has high-end communication skills, and seems to always get a great result. Whether I am buying or selling, I know I have the best representation. I witnessed Raquel go above and beyond her duties to make sure I was protected. She thought of many details that an experienced real estate client, like myself, wouldn’t know nor remember. She is the best.— Seller
