"It Takes a Family"

The Pelling Family

“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.”
