Our Clients Do The Talking For Us
We welcome you to read how just a few of our clients felt about the service they received during their real estate transactions. We look forward to helping you with your transaction - and adding your feedback here!
"To whom it may concern:
I highly recommend Bryan Devore as a Realtor. He acted as our agent in the recent sale of our Rancho Carrillo home and helped us find another in short order.
We found Bryan to be highly accessible, trustworthy, dependable, and extremely knowledgeable about the local market. We interviewed several agents claiming to know our neighborhood before choosing Bryan and realized that he really was the expert in our community. No one else we've encountered seems to understand the area as well--probably because he and his wife live and work here, are raising their children here, are sending them to the local schools, and in general are very well connected.
Bryan also has extensive contacts in the real estate community. In fact, he helped us discover houses even before they officially went on the market, and finding our new home just a little bit before everyone else is what helped us win out in what would have been a competitive bidding war with several other potential buyers.
We enjoyed working with Bryan. He has a great sense of humor, is exceedingly kind, and never pressured us but rather gently guided us in the right direction. Given we had little notion of what we wanted in a new home when we started the process, it was a significant undertaking to help us figure out the market, determine our wants and needs, and then help us fulfill those. He was patient throughout the process and worked around our particular requests with ease.
In short, he’s a fabulous Realtor and a great guy, and I will refer all our friends and family to him in the future!"

"As buyers relocating from a distant community and needing to understand North County housing, we found the Devores online. Our first email was answered immediately, and it was apparent everything we wrote in that and subsequent communications was well understood and considered. The Devores took our input and applied their market knowledge to select appropriate homes for our online review. By the time we visited and met face to face, we already knew much about Carlsbad and had narrowed our search to a tour we could manage in our limited time there. The Devores knew exactly how to proceed efficiently to build our market knowledge further and, by day’s end, we had refined our wants to a few specific neighborhoods. These people are responsive, knowledgeable, passionate about what they do … and they’re consummate professionals. I could not have asked for a more effective or understanding of the Carlsbad housing market."

“I just had to write and tell you what a wonderful real estate transaction I had with Bryan Devore. I found Bryan through his monthly updates. I had a house in Rancho Carrillo that was vacant. I called Bryan because I thought he would be interested in renting it for me. After several conversations we decided to list it for sale as well. We sold it in less than two months.
My husband and I have bought and sold many properties. Bryan is the most knowledgeable agent we have ever worked with. His calm yet enthusiastic demeanor is an absolute pleasure. He never tried to “sell” us on his ideas, but instead provided thoughtful wisdom of the market and great feedback. He always got back to me quickly. He made selling our house easy. We will definitely use his services again as we intend to acquire investment properties in the future.”
You did an unbelievable job in the sale of our home.
We initially chose to work with you because of you community involvement and knowledge – we felt it was what set you apart. What we found later during the transaction was much more. You displayed a complete attention to detail, were extremely responsive to our questions and needs, and were completely dedicated to doing the very best job possible.
Even though I am a real estate broker and a member of the Multiple Listing Service, I chose to have you list our property. You had a great knowledge of the market, the contracts & paper work, and you were proactive in keeping us informed all along the way. You were also extremely creative in designing a comprehensive and effective marketing plan, and followed through on all of the promises you made.
We will absolutely recommend you to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home, especially in Rancho Carrillo. We have several people that we will recommend to you in the next month.
Thank you for all of your help in this transaction. “
“This is a testimonial on the service provided to us regarding the rental and sale of our home in a very poor real estate market. We placed our home located in Carlsbad CA on the MLS with Bryan Devore in the summer of 2007, due to a required move to Northern CA. Two months later an offer to rent our house was presented, and Bryan nicely handled the arrangements. After a year the tenants suffered some setbacks and had to move. Bryan found us another tenant quickly, however the husband lost his job, and they never moved in. We then ask Bryan to again list the home exclusively for sale.
The pricing of our home had to be adjusted for the market several times but Bryan was diligent staying abreast of the market. There were several offers but unfortunately with the market favoring the buyer, not the seller, we received some ridiculous offers and Bryan helped us weed through them to expose potential pitfalls. Finally came in December we did receive an offer we could live with and the sale was finalize in early February 2009.
Bryan was very informative each month with a newsletter to keep us up with the market and what was pertinent to receiving offers fair to us. We appreciate all the hard work he put forth and would recommend Bryan to anyone who is ready to put their home on the market. Prudential is fortunate to have such a dedicated agent working under their broker’s license that shows professionalism and knowledge in his field.”

“It is with great pleasure that we recommend Bryan Devore as an outstanding real estate agent. Bryan helped us sell our home in Carlsbad, and buy our new home in San Marcos, during April-June 2009. Throughout the entire process, Bryan provided an excellent service, being motivated, enthusiastic and very professional. It was easy to feel as though we were his only clients.
Bryan helped us determining what the asking price for our home should be. He got our home sold in less than a week for a price we thought we would never be able to sell! Bryan would always promptly return our calls and set the whole thing going in no time. He was very flexible and would set up meeting times at our convenience.
Bryan was also instrumental in helping us find our new home. He immediately understood what we were looking for and, knowing that we did not have much time, showed us only those houses that would potentially interest us. He was always expedient in searching for properties, and setting up tours. He offered us an objective viewpoint on each house we toured, thereby helping us with our decisions.
In finalizing all the detail work involved in closing the deals and completing the contracts, Bryan
We highly recommend Bryan to anyone looking for a highly effective and reliable real estate

“We are writing this letter to share our experiences in working with Bryan Devore and to strongly recommend him as your new real estate agent. Bryan is a dependable agent who provides ongoing communication and knowledgeable service. Without his expertise and assistance, we would not be in our new home today.
We recently relocated to the San Diego area from Maryland. Having lived in the San Diego area before, we knew we wanted to live North County and were particularly interested in the Rancho Carrillo neighborhood. Since we had limited opportunities to view homes in the area, Bryan accommodated our schedule and was able to meet us when we were in town to show us the neighborhood and nearby communities. During our initial visit in February 2009, we viewed a number of short sale homes since we were not planning to move until May. We found one that we liked, and with Bryan’s help, we were able to secure first position for approval by the banks.
If you know anything about short sales, they can be complicated and stressful, but Bryan was there to guide us through the process and keep our confidence up when we were ready to walk away. He stayed in regular contact with the seller’s agent for five months and provided frequent updates on how things were going and what to expect. With his help, we were able to open escrow early to ensure a timely closing before our new baby was born. If it weren’t for Bryan’s persistence and willingness to stand by his clients, we would not be in this home today. Although the short sale process was complex at times, we secured a great deal on a house because Bryan was there to help us remain patient and positive.
If you are considering buying or selling a new home in North San Diego County, and particularly in Rancho Carrillo, we highly recommend Bryan Devore as a real estate agent. He is always available; keeps the line of communication open, and is one of the most positive and friendly people you will meet in the area. Buying or selling a house is a stressful and busy time, but Bryan is there to alleviate any additional worries you might have and guide you every step of the way. Whether buying a short sale home, a bank owned home, or a regular sale home, you can feel confident with Bryan Devore representing you and your interests as your agent. “
