Jamie and Josh helped me buy my house four years ago. We have stayed in contact and they have been helping me manage my rental house. Throughout the home buying process Jamie and Josh were knowledgeable, able to provide me with good advice, and pleasant to get along with.

The first time I met Josh and Jaime I was impressed with their customer service. They treated us like family not a prospect buyer and I just love them. I bought my house from them in 2013. However, with my line of work I was move oversea in early 2015. First people in my mind that I can trust to take care my property of course Josh and Jaime. I'm very happy and satisfied with them and I strongly recommend them,you will not regret it. I promise that you will love them too.

My husband and I feel so lucky to have met and worked with Jaime and Josh. As first time home buyers, we have talked with many realtors and can never seem to find the connection nor trust to work with them. But that is not the case with these two, it was an instant connection upon meeting them at a home viewing we were interested in. They are so down to earth and did not once make us feel like we couldn't afford living in Southern California. First they listened to us, then they made sure to get us in contact with an awesome VA broker name Mark Fedder. We knew they genuinely wanted to help our family find the perfect home, by their honesty, professionalism, attentiveness and always guiding wisdom when we became unsure or the process was becoming overwhelming. It was alot of fun looking at homes with them, especially since we'd always bring all our kids with us and they never seemed to be bothered by the time it took to show a home to a family of our size. But in the end they help us find our dream home, just perfect for our family. Thank you Jaime and Josh for that awesome first home buying experience. Less ... More

We chose Jamie & Josh to sell our rental condo from long distance, and couldn't be happier with the service they provided. Their local knowledge and responsiveness truly stood out as exceptional. In one instance, they even took our call while they were attending a baseball game. They took care of so many little things that the whole process seemed almost painless. I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling in the area.

Jamie and Josh have immense knowledge in the local real estate market. They were able to work with us on our likings and they listened to our likings and taste and understood exactly what we need in a home. They were very good at responding back to us even when we had questions over to them on weekends and were giving their honest opinions whether a home was woreth considering or not. They additionally are currently helping us through getting us contacts and info for various contracters for rennovations in our home and are very responsive and helpful in giving their suggestions.

Met Jamie & Josh a couple of years ago, when we decided to purchase new home, and we absolutely loved their service, knowledge, expertise, and their attitudes. Two very nice guys that were a pleasure to deal with. Things came up and we did not buy our house. We begun our search again this year, and of coarse called the them again, not only to help us buy our new home but sell our current one. They sold our house within two days! We just closed on our new house a month and a half ago, and as expected, they were great. Jamie & Josh go above and beyond and are available 24/7 and actually call you back unlike other agents, nor are they pushy in order to make their money, they will even tell you if it's not worth it to you, even if it costs them their commission!!! Our sellers agent was a nightmare, and not truthful, and they handled him and his issues unbelievable well, how they managed to survive that experience with such an agent and keep their composure could only be done by professionals such as Jamie & Josh. Highly recommend them, we still keep in touch, they become part of the family and my husband and I are very grateful to the boys!! they are an awesome team and know San Diego!!! Less ... More

Buying my first condo was definitely an overwhelming experience. Jaime and Josh made it extremely easy and took care of every step from start to finish. The best part about these two is the fact that they are here to work for YOU, not for themselves. They aren't just here to earn the commission, they are here to help you make one of the biggest purchases of your life. We had multiple properties that were great and I would hear all about the good stuff, but if there was even the slightest negative they would be sure to let me know. Their knowledge and expertise in real estate let me trust them completely. Within five seconds of being inside a property they could tell me 10 things that needed improvements and even what I might be spending after move-in. I ended up purchasing in Mission Valley and couldn't be happier. They also have Mark Feder for the financing side. I had an unusual situation with my income being low and starting a new business. Mark spent countless hours going through every loan possible and found one that got me approved when I thought that I was going to be stuck and not able to purchase for another year. This team of guys work their hardest to make it as easy as possible. I will 100% use them again in the future. I couldn't have asked for anything more out of them. I have referred both my father and sister to Jamie, Josh, and Mark and I'm sure they will take great care of them. Stop thinking and call these guys! SD Redefined Real Estate! Less ... More

Josh and Jamie were awesome to work with. They were prepared with a detailed breakdown of the comps for our area when we first met with them, had a great strategy for pricing and marketing our home, and were very honest and fair in their presentation of what we could expect. They know their stuff in relation to the neighborhood and market and didn't promise anything they couldn't deliver when it came to sale price and timeframes. We were on a tight timetable to get our sale done and Josh and Jamie made it happen! Couldn't have asked for better agents! Less ... More

Jamie was very kind and helpful during the process of searching for and buying my first condo, and I didn?t feel pressured at all. He made it really easy for me to schedule viewings, accommodating my requests to see places on the fringes of regular business hours and/or on weekends. Once I found a place to bid on, I was able to complete a large majority of the paperwork online via docusign, a convenient alternative to printing/scanning/etc., and he quickly addressed the questions I had along the way about each form. Jamie also helped me find an alternate lender and keep my closing process on schedule when issues arose with my first lending agent. Highly recommended. Less ... More

Josh and Jamie are two outstanding professionals who are true to their words. I was immediately drawn to them when I read their profile about how honest they are with their opinions and the fact that they look at a property in terms of whether or not it's a good investment. I worked mostly with Josh in the beginning and quickly noticed that he has a talent for seeing the potential (or lack of) in a property which was valuable to someone like me, a single mom, with lack of vision. As a single person going through this very overwhelming process of purchasing a home, at times, I found myself feeling extremely anxious, nervous, and worried at different stages of the process, Josh stayed calm and collected at all times and reassured me that everything would be alright and, in the end, he was right. I am now a happy home owner and loving my new home. I couldn't have asked for better agents than these two. Besides their knowledge and professionalism, they were very pleasant to work with because they are just really nice, down to earth guys with a great sense of humor, very accommodating, and full of ideas and suggestions and willing to share them all.

To date I have bought on primary and one investment through Jamie and Josh. The primary I actually closed at 26 days and moved in at the 21 day mark. Josh even negotiated a rent back for a week because I had to fly out of town for two weeks. Nothing but great work from these two.

Nothing but positive things to say about Jamie and Josh. I met them at a point when I was in NO position to buy. That knowledge didn't prevent them from taking quite a bit of time out of their busy schedule to just chit-chat with me about what could happen in the future. Three years later, I contacted them and they were nothing but pleasant, charming, hard working, intelligent, and held my hand through my 1st experience of buying a house. It should have been an overwhelming experience, but their extremely helpful nature made it seem like a breeze! Because they knew it was my 1st time buying a house, they took the time to see houses with me that they knew wasn't going to be a good fit for me. They explained to me beforehand how they wouldn't recommend it but left it up to me to decide whether I wanted to take them at their word, or see it for myself so that I could chalk it up to a learning experience. Yes, they were always right, but valued each and every lesson I learned, and I thank them for that. In the end, I got a home I was very happy and proud to own. Even got a killer price for it, even considering it was a seller's market. They seemed so "in tune" to their market that they knew what price would get accepted. A little over a year later, I considered selling due to some personal problems ( I was still happy about the house!). It was my 1st sale of a home, and they again held my hand throughout the whole process. We went all the way to receiving some great offers (would have made a very healthy profit) but I decided to keep the house. Jamie and Josh put in a lot of time and effort towards the sale of the property and I felt guilty about making them go through with all that they had. They were nothing but gracious and supportive about my decision. I've got nothing but positive things to say about these two gentlemen. They've earned my respect and loyalty 110%. Less ... More

Jamie and Josh are true professionals. They are enthusiastic and highly engaged as realtors, and I would recommend them to anyone. They struck the perfect balance between catering to a client's needs and being forthcoming about the reality of a property. Their ability to do such illustrated just how much they knew about the markets and various areas of San Diego, and among their other strengths as agents, they were able to leverage their clear knowledge when it came time to negotiate. Although I personally was not able to follow through with a purchase of a property due to moving overseas, I went as far to make offers and receive counter-offers, and Jamie and Josh were consistently successful at negotiating for a price way under the marketed value. As a partnership, they complement each other's strengths and provide the reinforcement and support needed for both the buying and selling parties. You cannot go wrong with Jamie and Josh! Less ...

Josh and Jamie have been outstanding to work with! I have been working with them through the past year as I learn the home buyer method and bought my first home through them. They walked me through the process in a very simple manner, and it allowed me to learn the details that I want to look for in a very comfortable way. They are very enthusiastic and helped keep fears from the abundant documentation low. I am very excited to move and know I did my due diligence in making sure I made a good decision, as they taught me this process. The amount of local resources they have have been very useful in setting up services, modification work, and finding an outstanding lender. I would recommend them to all of my friends and coworkers, because I was very impressed with their quality of service! Thanks!! Less ... More

Jaime and Josh have such an easy process in place for purchasing a home. The electronic communication for signing documents was seamless, and they were also available anytime for questions over the phone. Best of all, they fought to get me the best price possible on a home I wanted. When I was ready to give a little too much to get the house I wanted, they knew how to negotiate a better deal without jeopardizing the sale. That's a credit to their local knowledge and business savvy. To top it off, they're just fun guys who are enjoyable to work with. Highly recommend them! Less ... More

Jamie and Josh were stellar buying agents in the purchase of our first home. Our escrow process was very drawn out (not their doing), and they did a good job of keeping us informed and letting us know where things were going. We bought an older home and their knowledge of contractors, electricians, etc was extensive, which was really helpful for us. We would definitely recommend them to anyone who is purchasing a home and enjoyed working with them.

Both Josh and Jamie were excellent in helping us find just the right place. They were always positive and available to show houses on our schedule. I have worked with many agents in the past and I especially like how they listen to their customers and were not reluctant to make offers that may seem out of line (to some people). They are good advocates for the customer and not worried about how they appear to other agents. In the end, we had 3 offers accepted and had to cancel the first two for valid reasons. Then we closed on the 3rd house and we are very happy with our decision. We had a tight timeline due to a 1031 exchange and they were always there to help make sure it happened on time. I recommend them and think they are better than most of the 20+ yr veterans out there. Less ... More

If you are concerned that {re}defined _ real estate isn't Prudential or Century 21 don't be. Josh and Jamie are experts and offer superior real-estate service. The Marina district is a highly competitive area in down town San Diego. With their expertise we were able to purchase our condo from initial viewing to closing in less than a month. Josh and Jamie were there to assist every step of the way, even after working hours. We know that we weren't their only clients, but it felt like we received 100 percent of their attention. They are tech savvy with their GoPro and Dropbox which made it easy for my wife to view the condo while on training in Florida. We would highly recommend them to anyone wanting to live in San Diego whether local, out of state or abroad. Less ... More

Jamie and Josh helped us First Time Homebuyers find our perfect home earlier this year. We were extremely picky and looked at a ton of homes. At times, we got discouraged. But Jamie and Josh were very patient, understanding and even reassuring. They knew our taste and showed us so many potential homes. We had a million questions and they answered all of them in such a way, that we felt like experts in the end! These guys are two of the nicest people we've ever met and knowing them made us feel like we'd been friends with them forever. They really pay attention to what you're looking for and only present you with homes you'd actually consider. Unlike most realtors, they care more about making their clients happy than the almighty dollar. They even kept in touch with us after we settled in to see how we were doing and to make sure we were happy with our choice. Really above and beyond with these guys. This review doesn't do them justice. We'll recommend Jamie and Josh to all of our friends and family looking to buy a home. Thank you so much for all you've done guys! We'll never forget your kindness. Less ... More

YOU WILL NOT FIND BETTER PROFESSIONALS IN THE REAL ESTATE BUSINESS! Choose Jamie and Josh and you will not be disappointed! I have bought and sold a house with {Re} Defined Real Estate. Jamie and Josh have great expertise, outstanding negotiating skills and they work hard. Homes can move on and off the San Diego market quickly. They understood what I was looking for and found it quickly. Because of them I got the exact house I was looking for. They found a newly listed house and we got an offer in and accepted within eight hours of being listed. I was not the highest offer either, but Jamie and Josh negotiated with the seller and closed the deal for me. Furthermore the document signing process they use is all digital, easy and very painless. They made the home buying process smooth and successful for me. When it came time to sell my house they did it within ONE WEEK! I was impressed.

Jamie and Josh sold the home of a family member who had been suffering ill health and the loss of her spouse, and needed to move into assisted living. It was important that the house was sold quickly without a price reduction. Josh and Jamie treated our family with a tremendous amount of compassion and understood the family was suffering through a very difficult time. They handled everything and made sure our mother was able to get top dollar for her home in Chula Vista and they selected a very well qualified buyer. Jamie and Josh ended up communicating directly with the buyer's lending agent because some documents had not yet been processed. Jamie and Josh were familiar and experienced with all levels of financing, mortgage approval, critical time frames, and at some point they personally worked with everyone involved to close escrow on time. This was a relief for us because our mother needed to get moved, and she was very happy with the kindness, consideration, and expertise demonstrated by Jamie and Josh. They also understood she was elderly and they kept us informed about the buyers and how things were progressing. They did not rush her out of her home, they respected her needs and her concerns, and they were never overbearing and treated all of us with much respect. We appreciated that. They had professional photos taken and marketed her home aggressively to get it sold quickly and for top dollar. Less ... More

Jamie and Josh are both so tremendously knowledgeable about the area. I had talked to two other real estate agents, but for some reason they just didn't understand what we were looking for. When I talked to Josh over the phone, it was clear there was absolutely no pressure. Both Jamie and Josh were willing to share information without heavy handed salesmanship. The area I was looking was probably at the high end of my range, and it was Josh who suggested one looking in other areas, and showed me an area I absolutely fell in love with. Houses were selling pretty quickly, but within hours of "my" house coming on the market, Jamie met me, showed me the house, consulted with Josh, and put together an offer immediately that worked for us and was attractive to the seller. They followed up and made sure escrow continued to move forward smoothly, and we closed on time. After an inspection, they negotiated a great agreement for us and we got a new furnace! These guys are professionals, know the area very well, understand financing and negotiations, and always available to talk. We had probably talked over the phone for a couple of months before we even started looking, and they always provided excellent information and advice without pressuring us. I loved that about them. They also helped us sell the home of a family member in Chula Vista, and I will try to submit a second review for that transaction -- it was the same top notch excellent service. Less ... More

Jamie was the perfect agent for my husband and me. We could text him day or night with a question or update, and his response was almost immediate. He was very accommodating with our schedule, showing us properties weekdays and weekends, depending on what worked for us that particular week. Jamie also has great vision regarding the full potential of a property. He had great suggestions as to how to improve the layout or design of particular homes that we may not have otherwise considered. When it came time to finally make an offer, Jamie and his partner Josh, were "all hands on deck." Jamie worked tirelessly to get us the home we wanted at a price that was within our budget. Josh, with his engineering expertise attended a meeting we had with a contractor to make certain a drainage issue was going to be properly fixed before we closed on the house. Their team approach truly benefits their clients. Aside from all their hard work and dedication, Jamie and Josh's sense of humor keeps things in perspective during, what can certainly be, a stressful but exciting time! Less ... More
