I found working with Simona to find and purchase my first home to be a very positive experience. Simona is extremely thorough and was very responsive to my inquiries no matter the time of day.
If you are looking for a very active professional to assist you with your purchase or sale then I highly recommend having her take you through the process. You will not be disappointed.
Mrs Giuffrida worked with my ex-husband and I to sale our home. She always went above and beyond to see to our best interest. She kept both of us up-to-date with the open houses, inspections, repairs and scheduling even tho that meant twice the phone calls and twice the amount of time invested in our needs. She also saw to the request of the home buyer making sure everyone walked away happy with the deal.
Simona helped us sell a condo in Pacific Beach. She worked with us for a month to identify small things we could do to make the condo more sellable. She had a professional photographer come in and stage it for pictures that turned out amazing! When we couldn’t be there to let in an electrician, she met him there and stayed while he worked. Overall, we spent less than $500 to fix it up and had an offer in hand for the full asking price on the first day it was on the market. We closed in 27 days! I could not have asked for a better agent to get us through the process…and painlessly at that! Simona is amazing!
Ms Giuffrida immediately impressed me as professional, capable and personable. she is well versed and experienced in real estate and her use of all available resources intelligently always makes her stand out. She most definitely helped me transition through the difficult process of selling my previous home and finding a new one with limited resources, knew exactly how to price my home and present it in the most favorable light and assisted me through the miriad forms and documents I had to wade through with two different real estate transactions. Now that the dust has settled I am very pleased with her performance and assistance and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an agent that will not only obtain results but will conduct herself ethically and truthfully. Oh, and she is tough as nails, no worries about being railroaded by other, less trustworthy agents, as I found out. She has definitely made a friend of me and I trust and respect her greatly. Good work.
Simona has warm and friendly personality. She’s professional and easy to work with. I appreciate her attention to detail and putting my interests first. I will definitely be recommending her to my family and friends.
Impressive work ethic and real estate knowledge. Simona is highly responsive and always gets things done right the first time. Her local knowledge exceeds what you would expect from an agent. She is extremely patient and her only goal is to find you the right home and not push you into something you are not sure about. I highly recommend Simona Giuffrida and look forward to closing soon!
Simona has been showing me and my husband properties that are right in our price zone and making us feel comfortable with buying the biggest investment of our lives. She is very knowledgeable, and not pushy at all. She has made the whole experience rather fun.
Simona was a delight to work with. Her professionalism and competence took away all the worries of searching for a new home because I knew I was in good hands. She was very patient with me and listened to my requests. She was very understanding when some personal issues arose and I was unable to purchase a home. I hope to work with her again in the near future. I highly recommend her.
Simona was incredible as she guided me through every step of my sale. She was savvy and knowledgeable about the process and made sure we stayed on the right track. She was encouraging and supportive and always made herself available for any questions, no matter how small. She was also a good and reliable communicator about showings and open houses. She’s very knowledgeable about the local real estate market and provided rapid input regarding recent sales. Simona has a wonderful personality and each exchange with her was an absolute pleasure. An added bonus, she’s a phenomenal cook and brought fantastic snacks for my open house. I feel so lucky that I found her and highly recommend her.
From the first time we met Simona at an Open House we knew she was the kind of person we wanted to help us both list and find a new home to purchase. Simona went above and beyond our expectations with dual transactions. She is extemely knowledgeable about contracts and kept us informed daily on both our sale and our purchase. She was always available to look at properties on a short moments notice. My husband and I successfully purchased a new home and sold our current home with the expertise and professionalism of Simona. She truly made our home buying and selling experience amazing! Thank you!
When we started the process of searching for a home in San Diego County, we started with another realtor (not Simona). Our experience could be summed up in just a couple words.. terrible and unsatisfied. We then decided to go on the search for different realtor. Simona was referred to us and from our first conversation alone we knew that she is very good at what she does! She was outstanding in every step of our home buying process, easy to get a hold of, and really became a local friend. We got our house for the price we wanted to pay along with some other additional items we requested. Let’s just say, her negotiating skills are pretty phenomenal! I can honestly say that if you choose Simona, you will not be disappointed!
Not enough stars in the sky to rate Simona. She found our perfect home! We looked for houses for over four years without Simona but once we met her she understood perfectly what we wanted. Our family feels blessed to have met Simona.
A stranger I met at a networking event introduced me to Simona a couple years ago. At first I was hesitant to contact Simona because I didn’t know that person and was skeptical about why she was recommending Simona so it took me a while to make the initial phone call. My first impression of Simona was that she’s very positive and extremely knowledgeable. I knew right away that we would have a good business relationship. My husband and I had been looking at homes for several months before we met Simona. We’ve met many realtors but never had we met anyone who was as knowledgeable in the industry. Simona took the time to sit with us to assess and really get an understanding of what we were looking for. We were very specific about what we wanted and we thought many of the requirements we had would be impossible to meet; however, we also knew that we wouldn’t settle for anything other than what we wanted. At one point I told my husband that Simona would drop us as clients because our demands were maybe too high and perhaps we weren’t being realistic but Simona exceeded all of our expectations. She was very honest about every piece of property we looked at and we relied heavily on her opinion before we finally made the decision to make an offer on the house we bought. If Simona saw a bad deal she gave us her honest opinion that it was a bad deal. She never tried to convince us to buy a property that we didn’t like just to make the sale. In addition to her honesty, Simona was very professional, extremely knowledgeable (can’t stress that enough), and well informed of the realestate industry trends; of all of these amazing qualities the things that impressed me most about Simona was her ability to follow through and keep us informed of all the aspects of the transaction. She would take the time to read and explain everything in details to us. Whenever she sends a document to sign, she would follow up with a phone call or text message (sometimes drive to meet us in person) to see if we had any questions and if we did she would patiently explain what we were signing and why. We’ve gotten to know Simona during our real-estate transaction and we appreciate how she went above her duties to make sure we were pleased with our purchase but what we would cherish most is the friendship we’ve developed. In a way we felt that we took longer to decide on a property because we wanted to keep her around just a little longer. A stranger introduced me to Simona and now I recommending her to my family, friends, and anyone for their real-estate needs; I say the same thing to all of them that Simona can be described in one word, the ‘’BEST’’!!!!!!
Simona worked tirelessly to sell our house in San Elijo Hills and help us find and purchase our forever home in Escondido. The whole process was 2-3 months, and in retrospect, she made an innately stressful process painless for us. There’s only so much you can do when dealing with others that aren’t competent at their job, but Simona is knowledgeable, honest, persistent, consistent, clear… the list goes on. She responded to ALL of my concerns quickly with clarity. I had complete trust in her the entire time, I knew she was always acting in my best interest. She also seemed to have an endless reservoir of patience to console and reassure me when I would have mini-meltdowns. We are so happy with our new home, and she made the sale of our previous home seamless; she took care of our pups when we couldn’t get home in time for tours, and she made sure that the buyer’s agent fulfilled her own job responsibilities to keep us on track. I have no doubt that she is the best in her trade, and she’s a wonderful person!
I would recommend Simona without hesitation. She recently helped and guided me through the stressful and complicated process of purchasing a home. She is always helpful and cordial. She will go above and beyond to make sure all the transactions go as smoothly as possible. Her ethics are exemplary and her professionalism is impeccable. I would definitely use her services again.
Simona recently helped me buy a home in San Diego, CA. This was my very first time buying, and Simona’s expertise, patience, and advices were invaluable. Simona made the tedious buying process a pleasant experience. To begin, she found a lender for me, and went with me to every meeting, asking questions and fighting for me. When things went wrong with my lender after we made an offer, she pulled that ace she had up her sleeve and made a horrible dead-end situation into a better deal – I ended up with lower payments and better interest rate going with a different lender Simona knew. One of the first listing agents we had to deal with was unprofessional and sleazy. I felt bad that Simona had to deal with him, but she was tough and made it all sound like a comedy show even though I just wanted to cry. Simona had all the best people lined up and ready to go for inspections and services. Needless to say, she helped me find the best place, a real gem, and a real home for me and my son. She was there for me throughout the process, beyond patient and helpful, always ready to go. I thought that buying a home would be a terrible experience, but with Simona’s help, it was a breeze. She is one of the rare realtors with ethics and integrity, not easy to find. Kind of like finding a good dentist. I cannot recommend her enough!!!
We would highly recommend Simona as one of the most professional, ethical, honest real estate agent. Simona went above and beyond helping our family relocate and find a wonderful new home, getting us well acquainted with the area with amazing care, attention, warmth, and compassion. She is highly knowledgeable, persistent, attentionate to her clients’ needs and responsive, always acting in her clients’ best interests. Most importantly, she is an exceptional person, investing herself personally and genuinely in her clients.
