In the spring of 2015, Jeff helped us buy a single family home in Leucadia and rent out our townhome in Cardiff. It was an amazing experience having Jeff represent us as buyers because he was able to help our offer be accepted in a very competitive market after years of shopping. Jeff also found us a great tenant for our townhome that was essential for our budget.

After a year with two homes, we decided that we missed our simple life and our Cardiff townhome. After meeting with Jeff and explaining our situation, he was generous with his optimism and confident that he would be able to meet our financial goals to sell the single family home.

Never having sold a home before, Jeff coached us through the process and had our best interests at heart. Jeff consulted with us on how to get the home ready to list. When we encountered problems with a contractor, Jeff was able to immediately help us get resources to get the home ready.

Jeff and his team owned every detail of the home sale from photos, listing, open houses, showings, gathering the offers, home inspections, appraisals, repairs etc. He and his team made everything no problem and we were even able to keep vacation plans that we had made before deciding to sell.

The home listed the day we left for vacation, Jeff sent us two offers via phone, and we accepted an offer while traveling out of state. Having worked with Jeff before, we knew that we could trust him with all aspects of this crucial transaction. In the end, Jeff handled our sale with the highest integrity and we closed on time and within budget.

Not only was Jeff professional and hard-working and able to perform in all three of these transactions for us (home purchase, home lease, and home sale), he was also a pleasure to work with. He is kind, optimistic, fun, courteous, and considerate. Thanks Jeff and the DeChamplain Group for delivering huge!

Hear What The Seller Had To SayThe Experience They Have In This Business Is Priceless!

gilespies When we bought the condo at Arbor Hill it was meant to be short term. We soon listed it for sale but had no positive outcome. We got busy with life and work and the real estate market crashed – our dream of getting a larger home was crushed. We didn’t know how long it would be before the market would recover, if ever. We felt hopeless and had given up. Then our neighbor announced she was going to sell. I was shocked to learn that things had improved and it was now a seller’s market. Our neighbor sold her place and I knew that we had a chance! A plan came into place and we knew what we had to do. We got rid of all the clutter that built up over the years and had a contractor come and do some work. The ultimate goal was to not be at Arbor Hill for another holiday season. We met with Jeff and everything fell into place. We put a lot of hard work into getting the condo ready to list and within a couple of days it was sold. We found our new home and our goal was realized – we will be in our dream home this holiday season! Jeff and his team helped us through the process and we could not have done it without them. All of the advice and guidance was impressive and they seemed to handle things without us even asking. The experience that they have in this business is priceless! We are so very grateful for their hard work and support through the process.

Hear What The Seller Had To SayI Was Demanding and Unreasonably Impatient

jon-lynn

My wife, Lynn and I had Jeff and Jennifer assist us with the sale of our home very recently. Although, I have known Jeff for over 10 years, and I had referred friends to him for his services, I had never had a direct experience of his work. He has been a very close friend and a trustworthy one.

We knew that Jeff was the only agent that we would want as our Realtor® to sell our home. His commitment, understanding and compassion is priceless. This process was a very difficult one for us as we had lived in our home for 19 years and we had a very close connection with our neighbors, yet we knew that it was time for a change.

Jeff was outstanding in his care and commitment to our getting the house prepared, staged and sold at the best possible price. I did not make it easy on him. I was demanding and sometimes unreasonably impatient with him and he hung in there with grace and patience for me and continued to have a heart to serve and help us out. There is no question now that Jeff is one of the most thorough and qualified agents in this County.

I would recommend Jeff, Jennifer and their team to anyone. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Hear What The Seller Had To SayWe Would Not Allow Anyone Else Handle Our Real Estate Transactions

picture1

My husband and I began looking for our first home together in 2007. We went to an open house in North County and were greeted by Jeff. We quickly found that he was what we looking for in a Realtor®. Jeff proved to be genuine and most importantly to us; honest, knowledgeable, experienced and punctual. We felt safe with our most private information going forward and working with him to find us our forever home. Jeff listened attentively to our wants/needs in a home and the neighborhoods we were interested in and we quickly found our dream home. Jeff walked us through every step of the buying process and 35 days later we moved into our home in beautiful San Marcos, Santa Fe Hills.

Soon after we met Jeff’s darling wife Calu and we all became friends. Both my husband and I go to Calu’s salon, Belleza Hair Studio in Encinitas, for all our hair dressing needs. Nine years later we found we needed to sell our home because of circumstances beyond our control. Jeff stepped in, once again, to rescue us and with the help of his assistant Jennifer, we sold our home in 11 days at full asking price.

Currently, we are in San Diego taking care of my elderly Mother in her home (my childhood home) and are busy making plans to sell her two homes in San Diego and Pt. Loma in order for all three of us to buy a home more equipped to handle my mothers needs.

Of course, Jeff and his staff are our go-to friends and Real Estate experts. We would not allow anyone else handle our Real Estate transactions. Jeff and Jennifer make us feel we are his only clients, which we are not. They are busy, throughout the year making friends first and clients second. Jeff helped both my daughters and a co-worker buy their first homes and they all have the same lasting friendship with Jeff and Calu as we do. We feel privileged to be called good friends of the DeChamplain’s, Jen and the staff at Windermere Homes & Estates.

Hear What The Seller Had To Say:  We Felt So At Ease Because We Have So Much Trust In Your Team

harrison-family-jan-2015

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.

Hear What The Seller Had To SayThe DeChamplain Group Is Truly Outstanding

I had been contemplating for some time a move from California to Oregon. Recently, I saw a townhouse that was for sale in Redmond, Oregon and called the listing agent, Leanne Johnson. During our conversation, Leanne inquired if I had a realtor in San Diego. I told her I didn’t and asked if she knew of a company with integrity and experience. She told me that her son who lives in Carlsbad was exceptionally pleased with Jeff DeChamplain, so I called them. Best decision I have ever made! The home I needed to sell to make my move to Oregon has been my family home since 1959, so it was very important to me to have individuals who respected me and would walk me through each step.

My initial contact on the team was with Jennifer Locke. She listened, showed unending patience with my many questions, and made sure to explain and accommodate even the tiniest detail every time we met. Then I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff DeChamplain, a true gentleman who reiterated to me that he was looking out for my best interest. He listed my home and within two days there were multiple offers above the asking price.

Through the transaction, Jennifer Lego kept me constantly informed of appointment times, documents that needed signing and a multitude of coordination.

Bottom line: If you want the BEST, choose the DeChamplain Group! The professionalism, efficiency, customer support this entire team showed with aplomb is exceptional and not always found in today’s world.

Thank you from my heart, Pamela Burroughs

Market Update | Prices & Sales Up in 2016

posted on January 23rd, 2017 | filed under: Buying Strategies, Market Update, NoCo SD Market Conditions, Uncategorized

The median price for single-family homes in San Diego County rose 5.4% in 2016 compared to 2015. This is the fifth year in a row the median price for homes was higher than the year before.

The median price for condos/townhomes rose 8.3% from 2015, again, the fifth year in a row of higher prices.

Single-family home sales gained 0.7% year-over-year. Condo/townhome sales were up 0.3%.

Days of Inventory were at their lowest since before 2008, which means the pressure on pricing will continue.

NEW FHA LOAN LIMITS FOR 2016

The Federal Housing Finance Agency has released the conforming loan limits change for 2017. This change resulted in higher loan limits beginning in January for many counties across the country.

The Federal Housing Administration is insuring loans for people looking to purchase a home or refinance a home with a little equity. The program insures loans up to the maximum loan limit in the county in which the property is located.

The maximum loan limit in San Diego County is rising to 612,950 for 2017. This represents a significant change for people looking to purchase a home who have good income, sufficient credit, and a healthy debt-to-income ratio who are otherwise tight on cash to close. This change represents bigger borrowing power in nearly every county across the United States.

The True Heart True Mind Enlightenment Intensive

We are excited to invite you to a special event offered by an amazing friend of ours, Joseph Rubano. Joseph is offering his annual “True Heart True Mind Enlightenment Intensive” that takes place April 27th – May 1st.

More Info

Here is what past participants have to say about this amazing and powerful experience:

“The True Mind True Heart Intensive is one of the most powerful and valuable courses I’ve ever participated in. The after effects penetrate all aspects of my life. It is quickly becoming a mainstay of ‘continuing education’ for my profession as well as my quest for personal and spiritual evolution.” DT. Author, Coach and Healer —  EI April 2016

“If you are looking for an experience that will create a shift in the way you view yourself, your relationship to Life and to the Path, I highly recommend this process.” Theresa C, teacher — EI November 2011

“I want to say that the enlightenment intensive has changed my life. The separation from the mechanical mind has been deeply effected by the beautifully painful process. My soul is so full of joy and something that I have longed for and striven towards my whole adult life, “a direct experience of the divine being, me” Thank you for the service and dedication to humanity.” Kayren P. massage therapist– EI October 2015
