The Silver Lining (SELLER)

My sons and I were recently faced with a sudden and tragic death in our family and I had to quickly sell a home in Carlsbad that was part of the estate.   But the problem was that I no longer lived in Carlsbad; I lived in Colorado, so the logistics looked daunting. 

I immediately put the word out to friends in Carlsbad for a good Realtor and Jeff’s name popped up. He came to our first meeting thoroughly prepared and his references were stellar. I hired him for the job and the house is now sold.

This was an emotional and stressful time, but Jeff made it so much easier. He helped me get the house ready for sale and then essentially functioned as the Project Manager once we were in Escrow, managing appointments, work assignments, and paperwork and keeping me in the loop throughout the process. 

Jeff consistently went beyond the call of duty, from scheduling and supervising work, to picking up mail, moving cars, mailing keys and even paying for some things out of his own pocket. And he did it all with graciousness, a sense of humor and always a kind word. 

He proved himself to be a tech-savvy and knowledgeable real estate professional who knew what he was doing and who patiently helped me to understand what was happening all along the way. He was dependable, conscientious and consistently responsive. He did what he said he would do, when he said he’d do it. He maintained exceptional levels of communication. 

When tragedy strikes it is often hard to believe that there is any silver lining to it. But having had the honor to meet and to work with Jeff Dowler was just such a silver lining for me. Thank you for the honor, Jeff.

Words of Praise from Relocating Carlsbad Sellers

Jeff did a superb job all around. He researched comps in our area that helped us price our home right. He also created a detailed marketing plan that brought lots of traffic to our house. As a result we received an offer within 6 days. Jeff answered calls and questions promptly and with great expertise.

He represented our interests well while being diplomatic during negotiations with our buyers. He went above and beyond the call of duty assisting us with all the paperwork and logistical details that went along with the sale of our house. I highly recommend Jeff.

International Relocation Buyer

I initially contacted Jeff Dowler when I resided in Germany. I explained to Jeff my situation which included a relocation to Oceanside, CA with the daunting task of finding and closing on a home within 2 months. Not only did Jeff help me find the perfect property, I believe without a doubt my escrow would have never closed within the 30 day suspense without Jeff' expertise. He was always available on a short notice and extremely flexible in meeting my personal home buying needs. I would describe Jeff Dowler as the consummate professional always willing to go the extra mile and do whatever is necessary to help his client.

First Time Home Buyers

Jeff helped my husband and I find our perfect first home. He worked tirelessly and was always available when we needed him. Jeff sat down with us when we first started and listened to what we were looking for and then helped us figure out what was most important to us. We looked at a number of houses, and then one day he walked us into the house we are in now, and we just knew it had to be ours. He was so helpful through the negotiation and purchase process. Since this is our first home, we had so many questions, and Jeff answered every single one promptly and honestly. I would recommend Jeff to all my friends and family.

Jeff Dowler is The Relocation Dude. My husband & I have had a working relationship with Jeff for several years. It started when we were still “enjoying” quirky New England weather & just dreaming about relocating to SoCal to be closer to our daughter. We weren’t what you’d call “serious” buyers at the time. On one January visit to San Diego to see our daughter, we met Jeff in person in North County. He gave us the cadillac of tours viewing multiple properties in our desired locations & projected price range, as well as a Certified Residential Specialist packet (a “keeper”) that contained a wealth of information about every aspect of looking & buying and (2) sturdy colored maps of the areas by zip code.

We maintained “virtual” contact from that day forward. He always kept us on the radar, never lost interest and checked in with us on regular basis even though we were far from ready to purchase. We finally relocated. We did our homework (much with Jeff’s help) and recently closed on a home. Aside from his meticulous and professional business demeanor, he’s just a likable dude. He’s passionate about his “neighborhood” and all it has to offer.

Even though we’re done looking for now, our relationship won’t end because we will continue to check out his blogs. We’d encourage anyone considering SoCal to start exploring his site & links. And give him a call, you’ll be more than pleased.

My husband and I were really nervous about finding and buying a home. Thank goodness we happened to connect with Jeff Dowler! His knowledge, skill and experience has proven invaluable in our search for our forever home. Jeff takes the time to get to know you and your preferences in depth, so he doesn't waste your time showing you properties that don't meet your criteria. His patience and wisdom has guided us through every step of the purchase process, making sure we understood exactly what was happening. Jeff also excels at communication, whether by phone, text, email - or all of the above! Most of all, he is genuinely caring. His goal is to make sure you end up in the perfect home for YOU, and he definitely goes above and beyond the norm to achieve that. Jeff is simply the best.

Dear Jeff,

A note from Sam and me to thank you for everything you did to make the purchase of our new home in San Marcos a breeze. We felt so blessed to have found you as our Realtor, as we knew no one in the area; it was complete serendipity. Not only are you the most pleasant person to work with I’ve ever known, you’re absolutely the BEST realtor. You did things for us that were way beyond the normal realm of a realtor’s duties and we’re so grateful for your kindness and all the hard work you put into our little project. You treated us as if we were the largest sale you were ever going to make, and I know it was tiny it the scope of San Diego sales. I hope we always stay in touch!

My wife and I wanted to express how much we appreciate all of your diligent hard work. It’s been our pleasure to have worked with a true professional. From the beginning, you were organized and had a direct marketing plan that met all our needs. Thank you again for always being available and communicating with us as if we were your only client.

Recently we listed and sold our home in Cardiff-By-The-Sea, California. We chose to list our home with Jeff Dowler and Dale Ostertag. We had some unusual situations and were pressed for time to sell our home. Living in another state, it was so very important for us to list our home with someone we could trust and who would be willing to assist us in some rather unusual circumstances. We had interviewed several realtors and chose Jeff and Dale because they seemed willing to go the extra mile to help us. 

            Based on information that we received from other people that had sold or bought a home, and based on our own experience in buying and selling a home, we believe that Jeff and Dave went above and beyond what a realtor is required to do, and what a realtor normally does. They reassured us, kept in close contact with us, did what we asked them to do, and were there when we really needed them. Additionally, they were way ahead of us in anticipating our next needs.
