"It Takes a Family"


testimonial for appleby family real estateI used Scott and Kerry, “Team Appleby”, for both selling my home and purchasing another. They helped me get top dollar for the property in a depressed market. They did a terrific job marketing the old home and were very good negotiators when offers came in. They were most professional and always on site for the showings, which made me feel comfortable leaving my home and dog in their care. The results of their hard work made me a very satisfied customer.

When it came time to find another home, I worked with them again and truly appreciated their valuable insight in the home selection process. They have a thorough understanding of the process and procedures and how to negotiate. Scott and Kerry were very responsive at returning calls, answering my questions and following through during both transactions.

220 Coast Blvd Ocean ViewsOver the last 20 years we have bought and sold several homes in La Jolla through Mary, Kerry and Scott Appleby. In each transaction, our interests were their primary concern. When we listed our homes with them, we realized the best possible price. When we bought homes from then, they found us the perfect place, clearly understanding exactly what we wanted. Their knowledge of the local real estate market is truly outstanding and the Appleby family has lived in San Diego since 1971.

Selling in a depressed market could have been a daunting experience. But our sale during the Fall of 2008 went smoothly and met our goals. Scott or Kerry were present for every showing and, therefore, they were able to judge the interest level of prospective buyers. By being personally involved at each showing, they were able to get great feed back and ultimately brought us multiple offers.

Team Appleby/Payne has earned our business and we have been the beneficiary of their expertise, professionalism and hard work. We are confident that you will have the same positive experience using them for your real estate needs.

client recommends team applebyScott Appleby and Kerry Appleby Payne made selling my final home a most pleasurable and highly successful transaction. Knowing their mother, Mary, for over 25 years, I had faith that hiring “Team Appleby” would be a wise decision. Kerry and Scott’s marketing and negotiating skills are excellent and we wound up with a multiple offer situation, resulting in my home selling for top dollar.

When it came time to consign, donate or gift furniture and valuables, they made the arrangements with “Ark Antiques” of La Jolla to visit my home to discuss various items and to later pick up those for consignment. Since the sale of my home, I have referred two neighbors and three of my Rancho Santa Fe friends to sell their homes with “Team Appleby”.

Kerry and Scott worked far beyond my expectations!

client testimonial image Over twenty years ago, Mary Appleby was our real estate agent and thanks to her, we were able to make home ownership in La Jolla a reality. Mary not only found us a most charming home, but she personally assisted us with the arrangements for our financing. Scott and Kerry had joined the partnership when it came time for us to sell our “Secret Garden” in the La Jolla Shores neighborhood.

They were most professional and skilled in staging and marketing out home for sale. We especially appreciated the fact that Scott and Kerry handled all the showings (not assistants) and continuously gave us detailed feedback from potential buyers and other agents after showings.
