"It Takes a Family"


“I cannot thank you enough for all you did to sell my house. You are an extraordinary pair. I’ve SOLD 8 houses, counting the Rancho Santa Fe property, and you are by far the best real estate agents I’ve ever worked with ! I would highly recommend you to anyone and thank you “mucho” for making it seem so easy.”

– Nancy Anderson, Fairbanks Ranch
“Thank you for your pre-market advice in preparing our RSF Covenant property to sell and the wonderful advertising. This resulted in multiple offers within only 7 days and greatly increased the property value. Kerry and Scott bring their individual dedication and real estate expertise in streamlining the sale of a property. Their vast market knowledge and negotiating skills translates into action and results.” 

– Emily and Bruce, Rancho Santa Fe





“We could not have navigated the sale of our parents’ property in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant without the experience and extraordinary generosity of Kerry Payne and Scott Appleby. John and Ann Pelling died within a month of each other last spring. None of the children lived on the West Coast and were scattered throughout the Midwest, the South and the East Coast. The Pelling home was lovely, but the exterior of the home needed painting and the yard spring maintenance. Some of the interior required painting, new carpet, staging, miscellaneous repairs, and cleaning.
In our absence, Scott and Kerry met with countless contractors, organizing all that needed to be done. Miraculously, the home was on the market in just over a month. With their guidance and incredible hard work, the home was under contract several months after listing and closed shortly thereafter. While we tried not to be “high maintenance Sellers” – we certainly must have topped their list. We needed Scott and Kerry’s help constantly. They knew exactly the right person to call to get tasks accomplished quickly, professionally and economically.
John and Ann Pelling loved their property in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant. Before Dad died, he said that we should retain Kerry and Scott, and we are grateful for his guidance. Kerry and Scott were considerate and thoughtful in presenting the property in the best possible light and treated our family with the utmost consideration and professionalism.”

Kerry and Scott were the listing agents for the home we recently purchased in Rancho Santa Fe, and after hearing great references on them from a couple of our friends we decided to use them as our agents as well.  They represented both the buyer and seller throughout the process with a great level of professionalism and helpfulness. The transaction went very smooth and we were very pleased that we selected them to represent us in the process.  We highly recommend Kerry and Scott !

“Kerry Appleby Payne and Scott Appleby represented us in our purchase of a new home. They guided us through the construction process and once the work was completed they helped us work with the builder to make sure everything was working correctly. Their knowledge of resale and new construction helped us choose the property that worked best for us. Whether you’re looking for an older home to renovate, or a home that’s move in ready or new construction, their broad expertise in the real estate market is unparalleled. We have been working with the Applebys since we bought our first home with them in La Jolla Shores in 1998.”
– David and Alicia, La Jolla

“We have had the distinct opportunity of working with Scott and Kerry Appleby on a couple occasions. Our most recent venture involved three concurrent closings, where the Applebys represented the buyers for our home and the sellers of our new home. The escrow transactions were on time, seamless and professional. Their team is very organized and knowledgeable. Scott and Kerry are our “GO TO” real estate professionals !”
– Jennifer and Horst, Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe

“Kerry and Scott were dedicated throughout the entire process. They were professional and made the process go smoothly. All parties came out delighted with the sale. We are thrilled that the new buyers love the home they purchased and very satisfied that Kerry and Scott skillfully and successfully represented both sides of the transaction. They are accomplished seasoned veterans and we would highly recommend them.”
– Judy and George, Rancho Santa Fe

“Kerry and Scott were the perfect team to sell our La Jolla family home after both my parents passed. They understood the emotional factor and helped us through it step by step with professionalism and compassion. They know the area well, work well as a team and I would do it all over again with them as our agents.”
– Jackie Geller, La Jolla
