Rachel was invaluable during the sale of my San Marcos home. I appreciated her professional advice and guidance during the process. She also provided referrals to her contractors for remedial measures that needed to be done, which I am sure saved me time and money. Additionally, she was very pleasant to work with and readily available. I highly recommend Rachel.

Rachel represented me for the sale of my childhood home, an architectural gem, designed by my uncle & built by my father. The sale was quick and efficient, with multiple strong offers. This was an emotional experience for me and I cannot imagine having anyone else at my side for this process. I have known Rachel since we were 5. She has integrity, is sharp and very loyal. She went above and beyond her role as my agent & was a true friend, always considering my best interests.
This was a unique sale, with unique circumstances and Rachel clearly understood the nuances of the home and sale. I would trust Rachel with any future endeavors. It is my pleasure to recommend Rachel Collins Friedman for any real estate project.

It was a wonderful experience working with Rachel! She represented us as buyers of a condo. She is very observant and was able to figure out the priorities in our home search really quickly. She stayed positive and outlined the potentials of the properties that we had showed interests in. After each viewing, she would also provide balanced & realistic advice on the pros & cons of these properties to help us avoid potential emotional mistakes.
She also helped us strategize over a good & solid offer without paying over the market price in a SELLER's market! We had a pretty short escrow. She was very responsive and detail-oriented throughout the process. There were a few minor hiccups with our loan application (not her fault). She was able to help us resolve all of them gracefully and kept us updated throughout the process. I would highly recommend Rachel to my friends and everyone who is thinking about buying a real estate property in the San Diego area!
