Why Sellers Love Us

Our sellers love us because we take over the home selling process from cleaning to staging to photography to closing. We have an amazing sales process and invite you to let us speak to you about the details during a brief listing presentation. And we guarantee that all the marketing we mention in our listing presentation will be done and we’ll checklist it off for you throughout the marketing phase. We work seven days a week with phones that we don’t turn off.

Why Buyers Love Us

This brokerage was launched with our buyers’ home shopping experiences in mind. We decided that on this site we would offer no property search software. We believe you, as a savvy future home buyer, already have a favorite website where you look at properties for sale. All of our buyers look online differently and we invite you to do the same. Follow their lead! Simply send us the homes you are curious about. If those homes are sold or still available for you, we’ll let you know.

Our Services

Blend was created primarily around listings. What do our sellers need to get a home sold, often with multiple offers and to a qualified buyer? Our job is to write a brilliant online presence for the seller, organize professional photography and build a narrative around the property. We use a software program that we developed to organize multiple offers into a handy worksheet for the seller to compare all buyers equally. We get sellers through the marketing and offer phases, through escrow, right down to handing them their final proceeds check. We are market makers — we push the price and get it.

Contracts are fast, easy and signed electronically. Buyers, we serve all your needs too from scoping out every property for sale that matches your criteria, to writing a compelling professional letter that accompanies your offer, to negotiating hard and fast for you. Those negotiating skills: buckle up. We are stealth, our knowledge about real estate runs really deep, and we intend to win your contract preferences no matter which side we’re representing.



Photography and Video

All listings are photographed with a Nikon or Canon professional DSLR camera with a variety of lenses. Boom flash, tripod, lighting and a little editing will make your photos simply gorgeous. We use the best photographer in San Diego. Videos are produced with a variety of special video cameras just for real estate purposes. Wow factor included.



Home Staging

What a difference things make! When we say staging, it can mean adding or taking away from your personal space when prepping your home for sale. Less is often more, but empty is not more. In vacant homes, we ‘surface stage’ the kitchen, fireplace mantle, front door area and bathrooms. Candles are vitally important to ambiance at open houses and they are new for every listing. To get top dollar, everything must be clean and smell great. Sparkly sells. We pay to have all listings professionally cleaned before staging and photography.

We take care of sparkly from our vast inventory of staging materials. If your home is not vacant, we work with what you have in place and often put a few things away. Voila! Your home looks bigger. It’s magic. We know what works. It take less than an afternoon to get staging done no matter the size of the property.




Blend Real Estate has a tradition of donating commission to charity. There is no limit as to what can be donated but often it’s 10% of the gross commission received by the brokerage. Right off the top. We feel very passionate about three subjects and our donations reflect this: Animals, Seniors and Blood Cancer.

We donate to many, many animal charities and Meals on Wheels. The third charity is the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Saving animals, feeding seniors and trying to eradicate blood cancers take up much of our personal philanthropic time and dollars.



Find Us Online

You’ll find us actively involved with all social media. Feel free to watch us or interact with us on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram. For Facebook, we make it a policy to not “friend” our clients unless they want to friend us first, and if they do then we accept immediately because we want to get to know you better! We prefer this process because our first job is to do business with you and jumping into your personal space may not be your preference. We respect your boundaries and we are friendly people who mix business and pleasure all the time. Some of our social media posts are business, some are personal. Please say hello, like, follow or friend!
