I Am Forever Grateful

Change is difficult for many of us and a move, especially as a person alone, is a challenge. Jeff and his team provided me with the honest, knowledgeable, care, and support that made this major move to a new home a positive, exciting adventure. We were in constant communication, all my questions and concerns were addressed immediately, and I felt understood and respected throughout this entire positive experience. I could not have asked for a more professional experience in combination with caring, empathic, responsiveness. I love my new home and am forever grateful to Jeff and his team.

harrison-family-jan-2015We Felt So At Ease Because We Have So Much Trust In Your Team

As soon as we decided to make a move, we knew immediately that we wanted to work with you again and we weren’t even open to the idea of working with anyone else. The process of both transactions went faster and smoother than we ever imagined was possible. To find our dream home within 3 days of starting to look was incredible and then to sell our Bressi Ranch home the first day on the market, to the first person that saw the house was equally amazing.

We could not be happier with the whole entire process and we know what a key role you both played in the success of both. We truly appreciate all your support, the education you provided us along the way, and your guidance. After seeing Marisa Lane for the first time, we felt so at ease with everything because we have so much trust in your team (and our lender Amanda), so I knew if there was any way possible to get it done, we would…together.

Thank you again for partnering with us throughout the entire process and for helping us find our dream home. We are so in love with our new home and the neighborhood. We cannot wait for the years and years of memories we will make here together. We could never have dreamed it would be this amazing. We truly appreciate everything you have done for us.

img_2721I Felt Supported And Guided in a Very Safe And Nurturing Way

To anyone thinking of buying a home…I would like to rave about my experience working with Jeff DeChamplain and his assistant Jennifer. It was 7 years ago that I was thinking of purchasing my own place for the first time. I decide not to purchase at that time, but never forgot Jeff because of how respected he made me feel.

Here it is all these years later and I have been so happy to finally be able to use Jeff’s services on an actual purchase. Even though he was out of town when I was ready to view properties, he sent his assistant, Jennifer, and I enjoyed the way she interacted with my mother and I as we saw different places. Then I saw pictures of this one particular place, and I was eager to see it that day.

Jennifer dropped everything so I could get inside the property, Jeff and Jennifer helped me put an offer together, helped me counteroffer, and finally helped me get into escrow. After that he kept in touch to let me see other properties to compare and make sure the one I had chosen was exactly the right one.

All along the way I felt supported and guided in a very safe and nurturing way. All this is to say “Do yourself a favor and let Jeff help you. You won’t be disappointed.”

will-jennyEven After Closing, Jeff Continued to Keep In Touch

As first time home buyers, we were apprehensive about the home buying process. We were referred to Jeff by family and upon meeting him we immediately knew why! Jeff and his team went above and beyond our expectations. Not only did he provide candid advice, but his expertise of the market is exceptional.

Jeff guided us through a new and foreign process with ease. His team always quickly responded to our many questions and simplified the entire process to ensure our understanding. With Jeff’s help, we were able to buy a beautiful home in Tierrasanta that had several other offers on it. He also convinced the sellers to build an island, install canned lighting, and install a fence in the backyard as a condition to the sale of the home. Even after closing, Jeff continued to keep in touch with us to make sure we had everything we needed.

We absolutely recommend Jeff DeChamplain and his highly qualified team!

picture1I Will Never Look For Another Agent In My Life

My wife and I are first time home buyers and have finally closed the deal on our first home earlier this month. The process was smooth and painless. Not only was Jeff there for us 24/7 to answer any questions that we had (which were a ton) his team was also there and provided great help.

Special thanks to Jeff’s team members Jennifer Lego and Chad Voisen for their excellent service.

Jeff and his team truly make you feel comfortable and do a great job of educating you on the home buying process. I will never look for another agent in my life. Jeff is our guy!

Culbertsons2Jeff Carried Us to Home Plate During the Sale of Our Condo and Purchase of Our New Home

It was a no brainer to partner with Jeff DeChamplain for our next at bat – buying our second home. My wife and I are honored to have stepped up to the plate with him and knock it out of the park 3 times now! We bought our first home through Jeff in 2013 — and this summer we pursued the unthinkable; swinging for the fences. He listed our home and within 48 hours we had multiple offers. Before we knew it… we’re being carried to home plate by Jeff and his team for the win. We sold our house and bought a new home in Carlsbad — all within a month! The unthinkable became our reality:)

Jeff’s professionalism, combined with his cool, calm, and collected personality made our buying & selling process an absolute stress free experience. Jeff and his team are truly all-stars and future hall-of-famers.

photoJeff is Now Part of the Family

My children and I love the outdoors, camping, climbing trees, caring for animals and being good citizens for the earth. We love to plant, collect eggs from our chickens, sit around the campfire and cherish the starry nights. When I saw this house in Ramona, I knew it was the perfect home for me and my family.

Turns out finding the home was the easy part. Jeff and his team stood by us through an incredibly challenging escrow including our mortgage broker (Brian Reynolds), inspectors and escrow agents – we all became part of a tight team that hung in there until the end. If Jeff and Jennifer hadn’t been at my side with positive energy and reassuring advice, I would have thrown in the towel many times. They are the most supportive, empathic, yet professional and knowledgeable real estate agents I have ever been fortunate enough to meet. We consider them family now. After all, they deserve this house as much as we do!

Ryan Tammy Lauren MaxThe Perfect Home For Our Growing Family
We purchased our condo with Jeff and his team in 2011 and four years later, our family has expanded and we were ready buy our first house. We had a goal of holding onto our condo, renovating it, renting it out, and finding a home that would meet our growing family’s needs. All we needed was a team of experts to realize our vision. And we knew exactly who to call. Jeff and his assistant Jennifer were instrumental in helping us select a contractor to get our condo in tiptop shape. They managed the marketing of our condo and helped us find the perfect renter.
We knew exactly what we wanted in our new home: a two story with a large backyard so our little girl and dog Max could have plenty of space to play outside. Jeff found us the perfect home—5 beds, 3 baths on a quarter acre. Even though asking price was initially out of our budget, but Jeff was able to negotiate a price we could afford. The entire process was seamless from start to finish. Buying a home and becoming a landlord can be a stressful process. We are so grateful for the masterful job Jeff and Jennifer did to make every step go so smoothly.

Jon n Danika 4Jeff Exceeded My Expectations

We love the coast and have enjoyed living in a small house in Cardiff but needed more space. We were referred to Jeff by a friend and could immediately tell he is an upstanding guy with high integrity.

Jeff did an amazing job for us through the whole process of buying our new home. I trusted his experience with this very important task and he exceeded my expectations. Jeff also made communication with the other agents, escrow, etc. no problem. He referred us to some contractors and other services we needed right away including making the appointments.

I’ve worked with other agents and I’m not sure how I could have done better.

Jon & Danika


We Cannot Wait to Recommend Jeff

The thought of buying our first home brought with it a lot of worry but luckily a friend referred us to Jeff and we knew immediately that we were in good hands. From day one it was evident that Jeff is passionate about his job and has, not only fantastic knowledge and skills, but also integrity and sincerity. Throughout the entire process, Jeff and his awesome team were there for us-as our realtor team, but also as our ‘friends’. As a military family, it can be hard to know whom you can trust to help make such big decisions, and we are so grateful we chose Jeff. As we sit in our dream first home, we cannot wait to recommend other families to work with this positive, detail-oriented team!

Fowlkes FamilyEven Better Than We Had Dreamed

We want to thank you for the outstanding service you provided assisting in buying our new home on Alta Vista Drive. You were all so helpful and fabulous to work with and were so amazing during our close -staying on top of all the details, interacting with the seller’s agent, the lender, escrow and title. We love our new home and it is even better that we ever dreamed it would be. We can’t thank you enough for the tremendous service.

Amanda and Evan 2We Can’t Thank Jeff Enough

Our house hunting adventure did not start out as well as we thought it would. Having been through two agents that couldn’t meet our needs, we were referred to Jeff by a good friend. Upon meeting him, we knew that he could help us find our first home. The atmosphere is his office is welcoming and refreshing.

Jeff did an outstanding job through the entire process. He kept us informed, and made us feel like we were his only clients. Jeff knows what he’s doing, he knows that trust and communication are of the upmost important to his clients. With Jeff we didn’t have to lift a finger when it came to talking with the other agents, which made the search that much easier for us! Jeff is very knowledgeable with every aspect of the process, and being first time buyers, our fears were not nearly as large, because we could rely on his expertise and advice.

We want to thank Jeff for all of the help and support he offered during our search. He helped us find our first home, and we couldn’t be happier. We can’t say thank you enough!

Amanda and Evan

Kim & Ed Anderson2We Absolutely Love Our New Home  

Jeff came highly recommended by our friend Shawn Marshall, a past client of Jeff’s and also a member of Jeff’s monthly business networking group.  After meeting with Jeff we spent the better part of a year searching for a house, as we had just had a baby and our wants and needs were constantly changing.  Jeff was great through all of this.  His experience and insights were invaluable, not to mention we had fun chatting with him during showings.

Once we found our dream home we were amazed at the communication and systems Jeff has in place that guided us through the escrow process.  We were supported every step of the way and Jeff’s assistant, Jennifer kept us informed and on track until to the day we moved in.

Even after the close of escrow, Jeff and his team were there for us.  We wanted to build a custom entertainment center and Jeff referred a carpenter, Chris Walsh, from his networking group.  Chris built exactly what we wanted and it is beautiful!  You must work with Jeff and his team if you are looking to buy, sell, or update your home.

AzuagaIt Was A Stress Free, Positive Experience

Jeff managed to make a real estate investment purchase transaction a stress free, positive experience, all in the time frame that was available to us.

As my husband was out of the country, Jeff provided me guidance and educated comments based on his experience, to allow me to better weigh the deciding factors and keep with our goal. He made things much easier by being responsive, anticipating questions and being overall proactive. Jeff visibly put a great deal of his time and efforts into our project daily, working with me and all players involved in the transaction as necessary along the way. He made the difference by keeping connected and reaching out to me throughout all stages of the purchasing process. Jeff showed very patient during the decision process.

Jeff’s demeanor is very professional, unemotional, yet approachable and friendly. I felt confident with the team of professionals that Jeff suggested as well, whom I found competent and reliable (including Jeff’s wonderful assistant Jennifer who made sure there was no administrative loose ends until after the close of escrow!)

Jeff’s other notable qualities: graciously adapts to personal and business necessities that arise during research or negotiations; gets actively involved in seeking prospects or solutions in the best interest of his client; shows true, fundamental business values and human qualities.

Finally, in the short time frame that was available to me, Jeff was able to make things happen timely but also safely. Thanks Jeff! I would definitely use Jeff for future real estate investments.

Picture1The best experience I’ve had with a realtor… ever! 

La Jolla – I’ve had realtors in KY, CT, CA OH, etc..   Jeff is patient, he gets what you’re looking for and doesn’t waste your time.   He has a great demeanor in the way he acts, talks, etc..   He is very professional and I would strongly suggest you look at utilizing his services.   You won’t be sorry!

Michael & CarrieJeff Found Us Our Home Without it Being Listed on the MLS

Leucadia – Most importantly Jeff is a great guy! He is honest, patient, and good-natured. He is an incredible listener. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field. If he doesn’t know an answer to a question, he will find it for you. Jeff works with a great team as well.  His assistant Jennifer Lego is also wonderful.

Because Jeff has the best values and morals, you can feel confident that he is looking out for your best interest. His number one priority is that you are happy, not necessarily that he makes a sale.

Jeff is the model of what a real estate agent should be like or aspire to be. I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in real estate, even if only casually looking.

Picture1With Jeff Working Hard on Our Behalf We Found Our Coastal Dream Home

Encinitas – We are new to the US market and Jeff made the very complicated process of buying a house here extremely easy. He was with us every step of the way and listened to exactly what we wanted. He is very professional, but is also just a really kind, genuine person. I have no hesitations recommending Jeff if you are looking for a realtor.

Mark & Leah Kim

HolmesJeff Really Took His Time To Get To Know Exactly What We Wanted

Carlsbad – The market is crazy in Southern California at the beach, but working with Jeff made it easy and for the most part painless (the search was long but well worth it).

He took the time before we even began our search to really get a feel for the type of house and location we were looking for. He customized our search, so that we weren’t getting listings for everything out there. With the market so wild we had to act quickly and discovered that once we got a house or two under contract during the home inspection that we had some serious concerns. He was able to access just the right experts to determine if we should be moving forward or walking away, which when that happened he handled with the other broker smoothly.

We finally found the right place, in the right location and during the closing, he and Jennifer handled all the items that came up quickly, smoothly and professionally. You can’t go wrong with working with Jeff and his team.

HobartJeff is Second To None

Encinitas – Jeff is a very rare combination: Great guy and Total Professional.

I have bought and sold properties in a number of countries and the levels of professionalism and passion that Jeff shows for his business and for his clients blows me away, he is second to none.  The attention to detail before, during and after the house purchase was exceptional.  Not only is he amazing to work with but the guy has a huge heart, great passion for life and is a real pleasure to be around – not something that you can say about a lot of realtors!

Please consider Jeff for your next sale or purchase and I am certain you will not be disappointed.  People who have the skills and work so hard to deliver perfection are a rarity and deserve to succeed.

CulbertsonI Couldn’t Have Chosen A Better Agent

Carlsbad – Jeff made buying our first home a very pleasant experience! He listens to your needs and works hard to meet them. We bought our first home in January of 2013, the climate was very competitive and Jeff helped us get what we wanted in our price range in a timely manner. I couldn’t have chosen a better agent and will use him for years to come. If you are looking to buy or sell your home give this guy a call!

Leslie & Tyler Culbertson

Jeff Was Very Generous With His Time

San Diego – My daughter found a house very near to hers which she felt I might like and which was so constructed that I could move my law practice into part of the house and have a separate entrance into the office. I had met Jeff when he represented Laura and her husband in the purchase of their house several years earlier and I knew that she thought highly of him. So, when she asked if I would like to ask Jeff to arrange for me to see it, I readily agreed. Jeff was very patient with me. This move was not something that I had contemplated. I had lived in a house in La Jolla which I loved for 27 years and expected to stay there until I died. Jeff brought me back 4 times at my request so that I could study the house to determine if it would work for home and office both. When finally I said yes, Jeff helped me make my way through the volumes of paperwork and then, when the purchase was completed, also handled the sale of my La Jolla home. There was scarcely a day throughout this months long process that I did not at least communicate with him by telephone or e-mail. During both transactions, Jeff was very generous with his time and continually offered support and guidance but never pushed me to make decisions with which I disagreed. I would absolutely without reservation recommend Jeff’s services to a friend or client wanting to buy or sell a home!

We Got It All Thanks To Jeff!

Fallbrook – To help us find the perfect home, our lender highly recommended we work with Jeff and over the course of this year, my fiancé and I spent a lot of time with Jeff searching for the perfect home to start our life together. We both work with and love animals in addition to having several of our own pets; Domino our French Bull Dog, Yahtzee our Cat, Jenga our Rabbit, Clue our Hamster and many Tortoises. In short our life is surrounded by the joy of animals so the challenge was finding a home with enough property that would suit us, our pets and allow us to have some horses. With Jeff’s help we found the ideal home and it was love at first site.  We were a little concerned when we found out that we were not the only buyers interested in the property.  Jeff put together a strong offer which included a letter from us telling the sellers how much we loved the house. This approach along with Jeff’s stellar negotiating skills got us the house at a great price – the sellers even commented on how much they enjoyed hearing about our plans for the home and the influence it had on their decision over the other offers they received. We are so thrilled to live in a neighborhood that suits our love of nature and animals and our new home is the perfect place to start our family. We got it all thanks to Jeff!

Jeff’s Attention To Detail And Clear Communication Made The Home Buying Process A Smooth One

Carlsbad – We lived in Boston and were relocating to Carlsbad for work.  The relocation company we used referred us to Jeff and despite the monumental task of relocating more than 2500 miles away, Jeff immediately put us at ease.

After a thorough consultation with Jeff he helped focus us in on exactly the type of home we wanted and the area we wanted to be in which was based primarily on school districts for our 2 children.   Rather than try to fit us into a purchase right away, Jeff helped us secure a rental home, giving us the breathing room and time we needed to find exactly the right home while we got comfortable our new surroundings.

With Jeff’s clear focus we were able to find the perfect home in the exact area we wanted to be in for a great price.  Throughout the entire experience of working with Jeff, we felt like we were in great hands.  His attention to detail and clear communication made the home buying process a smooth one and he really went to bat for us when negotiating the purchase on our behalf.

We absolutely love our new home! We are so grateful that Jeff was referred to us and we have already referred him to help our friend who is also relocating from Maine.  We know Jeff will take great care of her during her relocation and home search.

With Jeff’s Persistence We Found Just The Right House To Suit All Of Our Needs

Lakeside – We were so lucky to meet Jeff when we were out looking at Open Houses.  We had an instant connection and immediately began looking at houses with Jeff.  With Jeff’s help we bought our first condo and loved it.  Recently we decided that we had outgrown the condo and needed a bigger home so we could expand our family – we are eager to be parents and wanted a place where my father could live with us.  It was hard finding just the right house that would suit all of our needs, but with Jeff’s persistence we found it.  The home we wanted was a short sale and Jeff negotiated a successful offer on our behalf.  It took a long time to get final approval from the bank and Jeff’s positive attitude and constant updates helped get us to the finish line – he got us into a beautiful home at a great value. We really enjoyed working with Jeff during our home buying experiences and have come to regard him as not only our Realtor, but also as a friend. You know when you are working with Jeff you have someone who is always looking out for your best interest.  We are constantly telling people about the great service he offers.

Dan & Marcie Jones

Jeff Took Our Needs And Best Interest To Heart

San Diego – A friend of ours was talking up Jeff to us when she heard we were thinking about buying a home.  We later met Jeff at a happy hour that he hosted – we had an instant connection and knew we wanted him in our corner.

Although we were first time home buyers, we had been looking for some time and had seen houses with a couple of other realtors.  I have to say that the experience we had with Jeff was completely different.  In the past we felt as though the agents we were working with just wanted to make a deal regardless of the home we got.  Not with Jeff! Our home search with Jeff was always on our time table and he always took our needs and best interest to heart.

The home we fell in love with was a short sale and it came with some challenges.  We had to wait almost 8 months to get the approval from the short sale lender and it felt like forever. Jeff and his assistant Jennifer did a great job keeping us in the loop on any progress and actions needed to move the sale along.   Overall the communication really helped keep us focused on our dream home. We want to thank you Jeff for all of your hard work to get us in our dream home. We love it and it was well worth the wait.

Dana & Jay Erickson

Our Experience Was Seemless & Fun!

Carlsbad – When we met you at your open house, we knew we had an instant connection.  You were very professional and listened so carefully, it was clear you were the agent we wanted to work with to find our new home. We so appreciate the time you took to sit down and have a consultation with us and really find out what we wanted in a home.  It was obvious to us that you are very family oriented and it definitely showed in the care you took in making sure we found the right home at the right price for our family. We also LOVED that you had the home professionally cleaned for us making it feel like home before we even moved in. Thank you so much, Jeff for making the home buying experience so seamless and fun!

Exactly The Right Home

San Diego  – As a first time home buyer, I wanted to stop renting and take advantage of the current market with low sale prices and low interest rates.  When discussing my options with my lender I told him I was looking for an agent to represent me and he recommended Jeff DeChamplain.  Jeff was extremely patient with all my questions and was quick to explain the process and help manage my expectations throughout the entire home buying process.

Not long after we began our search, Jeff found me the perfect condo. The downside was that it was a Short Sale and Jeff explained that it could take a while to close escrow.  They accepted my offer and we opened escrow however, right before we were supposed to close the Sort Sale lender decided to cancel the deal and let the property go to foreclosure. This did not deter Jeff from helping me get the home I wanted.  He and his team watched for the property to go to auction and eventually it was listed for sale again.  Jeff caught it as soon as it came on the market and we made an offer right away. At the end of the day, Jeff got me exactly the home I wanted and he didn’t let me settle for anything less.

Jeff has so much experience and knowledge of the home buying process that you know you are in the hands of a true professional, but at the end of it all you realize that he is a true friend. My long term goal is to buy multiple properties for investments so I will be looking to buy other homes and I will definitely use Jeff as my realtor. In the meantime, I will be recommending Jeff any chance I get.

Mary GabrielsenMoved To Downsize

Talmadge – I wanted to thank you for your extraordinary level of service in the process of buying my new home. After being in the same home for 31 years, it was time to down-size. You captured my confidence and relieved anxiety by establishing a great rapport with me and my family, while providing me with valuable and timely education about the entire buying and selling process. You were always available by telephone or email to answer questions and provided important insights gained from your experience. I especially appreciate your respect for my time and your attention to my ambivalent feelings about selling my home and moving. Your creative marketing strategies resulted in several offers, even in a “down” market, with my entering into escrow with an excellent offer less than three weeks after the house was first listed. As you wisely advised, there were disappointments in the process of finding my new home, but your diligence and careful questioning about what I was looking for resulted in my dream home.

Without hesitation, I would recommend you to friends and family for their future real estate needs.

Sincerely yours,

Mary Gabrielson

GearyFirst Time Home Buyers – Short Sale In Ideal Neighborhood

San Diego  – Our mortgage broker referred us to Jeff DeChamplain and we’re glad he did. Sean and I, as first time home buyers, wanted to take advantage of the tax credit and low interest rates last year, so we knew we needed to get going on the hunt for the right home. Jeff asked terrific questions and listened to our wants and needs, and was instrumental during our search. When we found a great home as a short sale, Jeff acted quickly. We were the first ones to view the home and the first offer. Short sales can be tricky and at one point, the deal almost fell though. Thanks to Jeff’s great communication and diligence, he stayed on top of the process. Now we live in this great home in a wonderful neighborhood that we’re proud of. We’ve even recommended Jeff to other family members that have had great success with him as well.

Leslie & Sean Geary

ConnaughtonNever Give Up – Diligence & Tenacity Wins

La Mesa  – We met Jeff through parents at our children’s school. This other couple raved about how great he was during their home buying process. We started working with Jeff a year and a half ago, and while that may seem like a long time to buy a home, Jeff stuck with us through a complicated, drama-filled house buying process. Last year, we found our ideal home in Mt. Helix as a short sale and we made an offer. We were on, then off, then on again vying for this property. Then through  a bank’s decision, the short sale came off and it went into foreclosure proceedings. It was months before the home was available to buy, but with Jeff’s diligence and tenacity, we ended up buying the home $45,000 less than our original offer since the home was now in foreclosure.

He never gave up on us and we got the house we really wanted. With all the ups and downs, Jeff did an excellent job managing our expectations and giving us reality checks with his down-to-earthiness and sense of humor. Jeff was extremely responsive to our needs, even when it was a bit of hand-holding. He cared greatly about the outcome and even our 11-year-old son commented before our house finalized, “He’s not just our realtor, he’s our friend.” Jeff is a great real estate professional, but what has made the biggest impression is his exceptional care.

Barney Connaughton & Family

Relocating To San Diego

Olivenhain – We were living in the Bay Area when my husband got a new job in San Diego. Our realtor up north referred a number of agents, which we interviewed and eventually my husband met with Jeff.  We thought he was the most prepared and interested in our business.  Additionally, he was knowledgeable about the area in North County where we wanted to live.

We knew that we were looking for a home with a special feel and a good deal particularly with the down market.  Our house up north sold and eventually we lived in a hotel while we were looking.  Jeff was incredibly patient while we searched for our perfect home and listened intently on what we were looking for.  He did his homework, previewed a gazillion homes and didn’t waste our time with homes that weren’t quite the right fit.  He always took our call and never stopped working for us through the process.

Eventually, we found what we were looking for and even on the day that we signed papers, he previewed another home just in case. He wanted us to be satisfied and happy.  He cares about family and getting you the right house.  We never felt that from another agent.  During the home buying process we were never treated like a transaction, but instead we received exceptional care.  It’s clear that he treats everyone that way; just attend one of his client appreciation parties.  We’re happy to be a part of his circle.

We have referred friends and colleagues to Jeff and invited him to family parties.  He’s a trusted friend.  Furthermore, has been a great resource for contractors, electricians and painters since moving in.  He has great contacts with the same work ethic and sense of care.  Jeff was key in our relocation to San Diego. I couldn’t imagine where we’d be without him.

Kryssa Cooper & Family

The Wait Was Worth It

San Marcos – Jeff helped us buy our first home and it was the best experience EVErRrRr!!!!! Totally knowledgable about the market and answered every question we had. He made buying a home a very great experience and stress free. He was always available when we needed to ask questions. I would refer him to everyone I know if they are buying or selling.. We love you Jeff , thanks for everything.

Jack and Chrissy Carey




Impressed With Jeff’s Level Of Commitment

Carlsbad – When we decided to buy a home, we didn’t think we needed a real estate agent because a relative, who is a broker, was going to help us buy our first home which was going to save us money on our purchase.  When we stared our home search we went out on our own and were visiting open houses when we met Jeff.  Jeff told us about a client he was representing in a short sale situation and we were extremely impressed with his level of commitment, and willingness to fight for his client in what was a difficult transaction. We immediately knew Jeff was the guy we wanted fighting for us, so we decided to put our trust into Jeff.

Being first time home buyers, we had a very specific list of needs and a short period of time to meet them. Jeff listened carefully and immediately went to work for us. He quickly found us the perfect condo that met all the criteria on our list. Within just a couple of months, we were in our new home.  During our search we saw a lot for condos and even though there were times I knew we were driving Jeff crazy, he never let us feel like we did and he was patient until the very end.  Jeff always made us feel like we were his #1 priority.

I have great respect for Jeff DeChamplain and truly appreciate the job he did for us in purchasing our first home. We were the beneficiary of impeccable service through each step of the process. Buying a home is more complex than we first anticipated, but Jeff made the process smooth by answering all of our questions and being on top of every detail. He never dropped the ball and earned our trust. We are excited about our new home and have Jeff to thank for a job well done. We will use him again and highly recommend him for your real estate needs.

Jeff Really Understood the Market

San Diego – As first time home buyers, we knew our first task was to find the right realtor who would not only educate us and guide us through the home buying process, but would also represent us well and handle the tough negotiations for us.

We spent the first three months of our home search going to open houses to find the right realtor, and saw more realtors than I can remember. None of them really fit the bill until one afternoon we stumbled upon an open house in Mira Mesa. The house was extremely well represented and the realtor presented us with analysis of not only the current market, but also the past market and his belief of the market trends. That day we found our realtor — Jeff.

Jeff understood the market, and more importantly, he understood houses. Knowing that we were first time home buyers, he always pointed out all of the different features of each house – both good and bad. He taught us what to look for, what high quality materials were used in a home and also what low quality materials were used. He really gave us all the tools we needed to make an informed valuation of the homes we looked at.

He was also extremely patient throughout our extensive home search. We saw more than seventy homes over six months (sometimes twelve in a single day!). And in all this time, we had not even made a single offer; because we hadn’t found “The One”. Some realtors at that point probably would have given up on us, or not seen enough return on investment of their time to continue, but not Jeff. The entire time, Jeff continued to listen to everything we said, and constantly helped us refine what exactly we wanted in a home. He kept telling us that we had time on our side and he wanted to make sure that we picked the right home.

Then, we found it — our dream home. It had everything we wanted and more. And, this is when Jeff really started to shine.

He helped us craft a winning negotiation strategy to get us the home at the price we wanted. And, he didn’t do it by just telling us what to do, he listened to our opinions and our approach, added his expertise and adapted to our wishes — he was our home buying negotiations consultant. The result? The first and only house that we made an offer on is now the place we call home.

Working with Jeff has been an absolutely amazing experience, and anytime we hear of anyone in need of a realtor, we can’t help but point them in Jeff’s direction. He is so knowledgeable and so accommodating to his clients’ needs. Not only a great communicator, but also a great listener, Jeff will certainly remain our go-to-guy for our housing needs.

Jeff, we want to thank you for everything you have done for us and we’ll never forget those Saturday house hunting marathons. Your perseverance and patience has made all the difference to us and we are so glad for that first chance encounter in Mira Mesa.

And, to anyone reading this, I guarantee that you’ll never regret the day you decide to work with Jeff.

The Competitition Was High But We Found The Perfect House

Fallbrook – I met Jeff DeChamplain through a friend of mine that had used Jeff to help him find his home. As a first time home buyer, I had a long list of criteria that I was hoping to meet. Some of the criteria made the home search very challenging.  I wanted to use an FHA loan and was looking for a detached home in a lower price range.  The choices that were coming up were very limited and the competition for these homes was extremely high. After a lot of searching, patience and communication we found the perfect home in Fallbrook. As a single father with two young children, it really means a lot that they have a great home to be kids in.

Jeff’s service was fantastic. He gave great advice and always steered me away from homes that were not the right fit and ultimately lead me towards my dream home.  My family and I are extremely happy in our new home.

It was great working with Jeff; he is such a down to earth, nice and family oriented guy. Since I purchased my home I have been chatting him up with all my friends and am happy to refer his services.

I Feel So Rich

Lemon Grove – The house is gorgeous; the deal was a great one; I am in my new home, and today I feel so rich. And yet the true riches have come through something below the surface, in the forms of relationships built. I  feel so incredibly lucky and blessed to have the relationship I have with Jeff DeChamplain. In the process of locating and purchasing my home, he was more than a Realtor, more than a simple friend.  He was a man  in my corner, the guardian of my good, and the teammate watching my back. He was always available to answers questions and provided guidance, with a context of making sure I win.  His selfless attention to making sure I got my dream home makes him stand far and above any other realtor. Jeff is a man of the utmost integrity, care, heart and true service. I don’t just suggest people choose Jeff as their Realtor. I say people would be crazy not to use  Jeff if they had the chance. You want this one on your team.

We Had To Act Quickly and Decisively

Oceanside – Patricia and I are in our 50’s and neither of us had ever owned a home before, so we were anxious about it to say the least.  We had very specific requirements. The home would have to work for 2 families, and it would need to fit into our budget. Jeff DeChamplain was our man. Jeff’s positive attitude, his ability to listen and support us every step along the way was just what we needed. We had to act quickly and decisively.  Here is where Jeff’s experience and warrior spirit came through and helped to give us the strength and confidence to take the next steps. He skillfully negotiated a wining purchase price and terms on our behalf. We had to go out of town just before closing and Jeff carried the ball without us being there. He met with the inspector, communicated with the lender and escrow, kept it all moving and stayed in good communication with us each step along the way.  He even made sure the plants got watered. He walked us through the escrow signing of papers and then even helped us with the physical move. We are very grateful to Jeff for being such a bearer of good fortune and positively. We will gladly and enthusiastically recommend him to others.
