First time home buyers can find choosing a location to be overwhelming

When you’re ready to buy your first home ever, or your first home in San Diego, location is going to be important. We appreciate that every buyer is unique in what amenities they desire, what they need and want in a neighborhood — and that they have a budget. Having over 30 years of combined experience representing buyers and sellers all over North San Diego County we have a lot of knowledge and expertise about the different towns that make up this great region. For example, though Oceanside, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Cardiff, Solana Beach, Del Mar and La Jolla all offer ocean view real estate options such as condos, townhomes and houses, the cultures of these communities are quite different. The same is true of the different planned communities in areas such as Santaluz, Del Sur and Carmel Valley.

Over the years we have helped countless first time home-buyers, such as Tricia and Andre, and first time San Diego buyers, such as Pam, within every price range – from $300K condos to $7M homes. These clients perfectly describe the experience you can expect working with the Geller-Meier Team:

“Eva and Maxine were wonderful to work with. As first-time home-buyers, the whole process of finding and purchasing a home felt rather overwhelming. Eva and Maxine did a great job of educating us on the process and communicating with us, our lender, and the other parties involved. They stayed on top of all the details and we always trusted they had our best interests in mind. We were really grateful for their help, and we’re so excited about our new home!” – Tricia and Andre

“The ease with which you made it possible for us to move from the east to the west coast was unbelievable. From the start of our first conversation you put me at ease. Generally I am full of questions and found that I had very few. You provided me with kind and thoughtful information on all aspects of the areas that we had an interest in. From Family neighborhoods, school systems, to cultural and last but not least the directions to the closest mall for my 15 yr old. You provided me with the answers before I could form the questions. Your efficient, extremely organized and thoughtful handling of our search for a new home was truly unbelievable.” – Pam

We would love to use our expertise to help you find a San Diego home in a location that’s right for you and within your budget.
