John was great to work with!

My 1st home purchase had its ups and downs but he made it happen, always returned my calls, and followed up when he said he would. He's an honest, no-pressure professional and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a solid realtor.

There are not enough words to tell you how happy I am with my experience with Alexander as my Realtor.

He was knowledgeable, highly professional, insightful, and kept excellent communication from start to finish. He was always handsomely well dressed, personable, and such a class-act. His high energy and expert negotiations skills were key to the successful sale of my home. Alexander is truly an asset to the Coldwell Banker Encinitas Family. His sense of "Teamwork makes the dream work" is reflected in the top level care and concern he had for my needs throughout this process. I have already recommended Alexander to several North County friends and neighbors

My wife and I had a very peculiar real property that we tried to sell for a while 'by owner'.

Hundreds of agents sent their credentials and offered their services. I interviewed one hundred and forty-two real estate agents. Some of them were remarkable but many were 'the best' ones; sadly their 'testimony' about their ability and achievements had been 'see-through'. My wife was impressed with smooth-talking ladies, but none of them passed my test... My simple tests indicated clearly that they were not telling us the facts about their great ability to market... All they wanted was another listing... Scott Gardner was about number 139. The main reason I welcomed an interview with him was the telephone conversation in which he was honest: he did not brag about what he had done in the past. The dilemma between my wife and myself was ended after our first meeting with Scott. We entered escrow with some of the most difficult buyers and their agent of all buyers and agents we ever had in our forty-seven years as owners of real estate properties. Scott Gardner, with all his honesty, patience and endurance navigated through their craftiness and manipulations till the escrow closed successfully. I hate dishonesty so much, but even more, I admire and appreciate the victory of decent business and dignity in working amidst the people that are deficient in the quality of a good character. I recommend Scott Gardner's services to all my friends and relatives that were interested in professional real estate service. The agent - client relationship became a life-time friendship and memories with gratitude.

Scott is the man!

He is a real hustler. He really put in the work to take care of me (above and beyond) and everyone else involved in a very tricky transaction involving tenants in financial distress. I've worked with a lot of real estate agents over the years and Scott stands out as one of the best. He hustles. I can't recommend him enough.

We had an especially tough seller we were buying from in the San Diego area.

John had the team to pull it all off for us without a hitch. There is so much to say about John Freeman. First, if you want an agent that stays in touch this is the guy for you. Absolutely AVAILABLE all the time. Gets More

John was very easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable of the local areas we were interested in living.

He was flexible to our hectic work/life schedule and had no problem showing us properties multiple times with little notice and at odd hours. My wife and I highly recommend John Freeman as an excellent realtor and he will definitely be our agent again next time we're in the market.Less

Peyton Mangin

He is the absolute best real estate agent in the beach areas of San Diego.

He will work his butt off to make sure you are happy and satisfied. Anecdotally, so you know this is not just fluff, when my townhome that I purchased with John's help was in escrow, there was one room that was clearly a "cat sanctuary" for the previous owner. Needless to say, it stunk. When I was supposed to meet john for an inspection of the property, I entered to him (in a suit) cleaning this area himself with supplies he purchased. And, he even provided a fan/dehumidifier for the space. He really is a top notch agent who actually cares about you and your happiness.Less

Alex Ciullo was one of the most involved, knowledgeable, and diligent agents I have ever dealt with.

From the first day my wife and I discussed what we were looking for in a home, Mr. Ciullo was there every step of the way to make sure that we not only found the perfect house, but we got it at the right price. He left no stone left unturned, as he negotiated on our behalf as well. He displayed nothing but professionalism and extreme care in how he represented our family. Alexander Ciullo is our guy, no matter what going forward. Incredible job!

Scott Gardner will be the best decision you make in your real estate purchase process.

He is a true professional, courteous, knowledgeable, patient, and he keeps things fun throughout the process. Scott thinks out of the box, and really takes time to understand his customer’s needs, which in this case were the widely varying needs of myself and my fiancé. Scott patiently took the time to show case all areas of San Diego, work with us on matching up our needs, formulated various purchasing strategies, and ultimately helped us purchase our first home that exceed our needs and met the budget! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Scott helped me and my Husband buy a house from the other side of the country, which was a challenging experience in itself, but he held our hand every step of the way.

Not only does he really know his stuff, he is also a fantastic negotiator. He responded to all of our requests/questions super quickly but what I admired most of all was his honesty. Rather than telling us what we would want to hear he would give us his honest opinion on whether or not we were making the right decision. He’s super friendly and a true professional. So glad we trusted him with the biggest purchase of our life! Highly recommended!

My experience working with John was a pleasant one.

My girlfriend and I were looking to either rent or buy in the San Diego area. John asked me to describe what we were looking for and what areas. By the next day, he had already organized a list of options for us and had set up times to go see the subject properties. John was not only eager to help, but respected my legal knowledge of the industry and didn't babysit us, he told me what we needed to hear and it was clear that he was very knowledgeable. He was also willing to contact other agents/brokers to request more information on the property so that we didn't waste any time with a place that didn't meet our needs. We ended up renting instead of buying, but I wish I had hired John when I bought and sold my first house, I know I will hire him to help me on my next purchase. Less

Scott was absolutely fantastic to work with.

He was very attentive to my needs and made my home search a breeze. Whenever I wanted to view a listing, he made it happen! Morning, noon, and night he was available to give me the information I sought. He guided me through the home buying process, responded quickly to all of my questions, and made me feel very comfortable every step of the way. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have worked with such a wonderful professional. You can truly tell he cares and goes far and beyond for his clients.

Scott is terrific.

High degree of empathy. He is organized, highly responsive, and a great communicator. He worked hard to find the right home showing various options and comps. He led us to a strategy to negotiate a fair price. I would highly recommend him
