Sue and Gina De Legge-Habchi

  • testimonials










"Well, where do I start when it comes to a recommendation for you. Is it where you have now spoiled us for using any other realtor? Really, up until we met you, our expectations were of a certain standard for realtors - we have used some great ones and a not so great one. Then you came along and all the others now pale in comparison. You are completely thorough in what you do. Along with your excellent communication skills, thoroughness, attentiveness, quickness to respond, and the through fulness is also a genuinely wonderful person who garners trust right away. Thank you for everything - thank you for making us feel comfortable, especially in these economically challenging times. Thank you for selling our house in 11 days! No one can believe it and for everyone who hears how quickly our house sold, it has elevated their spirits and hopes that this recession will lift quickly. I will certainly recommend you to anyone that I know that may require your series. I will feel confident giving people your name knowing that they will be taken care of in the most professional and courteous manner. Thank you also to your lovely daughter, Gina, who is quite obvious following her mother's footsteps."

Selling and buying a home can be a very emotional and stressful process especially in today's real estate environment. Fortunately for us, that experience was mitigated by the outstanding relationship we forged with Sue and Gina De Legge. As we encountered unforeseen obstacles throughout the buy and sell process they provided immediate resolutions and encouragement to move forward. They provided an excellent knowledge of the geographical areas we were interested in and continually negotiated on our behalf with our best interest in mind. In particular, the most impressive part of working with Sue and Gina was the personal attention and interest they showed us which went above and beyond agent and client relations. Their responsiveness to all our questions and concerns was very impressive. It is without reservation that we would strongly recommend Sue and Gina to assist in all aspects of real estate."

"We would consider Sue and Gina two of the top realtors we have worked with. Their marketing is the most extensive that I have seen. While we were not the most motivated of sellers they stuck with us and with great patience and continued efforts. We actually decided to pull our home off the market several times due to events happening in our lives (such as our daughter's wedding). The communication throughout the processes was excellent and we were always kept abreast of any changes in the market. They represented both the buyer and seller. While this might concern some I must say I felt Sue had both parties' best interests at heart. Once in escrow, it was probably one of the smoothest escrows I have ever experienced. Thank Sue and Gina for your patience and perseverance. We would definitely use them again in the future."

"It is hard to put in words how I feel about Sue and Gina. First of all, let me tell you if you are looking for a real estate broker that is laid back, informal, relaxed and with little experience, then these ladies are not for you. Sue and Gina are a dynamo. They are extremely knowledgeable, professional and results oriented. Once you define what it is you re trying to achieve, they will use their knowledge and go find what you are looking for even if it is not in the MLS. While both are extremely busy, they always respond to phone calls and solve problems. Buying or selling real estate is not easy. There is a lot going on but Sue and Gina are extremely experienced and can handle the pressure. I admire people that deliver what they promise and they delivered! Don't even hesitate to hire them. They are the best."

"After moving to San Diego from Boston, Sue and Gina worked with us over an extended period of time to help us find a house. They were extremely patient as we searched for just the right place. It didn’t take long before they learned what we liked. They stayed with us guiding us educating us about a new and much different real estate market. After visiting at least 100 houses, Sue checked out a house in advance for us and knew immediately it was the right one for us. Because she knew us so well, we were able to make the right offer quickly. Sue advocated for us during the negotiations and was very skilled at taking us through the closing process. She knew when and when not to push. Sue and Gina get to know their clients well which makes them really good at matching the right house to the client."

"We chose Gina and Sue De Legge to sell our house in Encinitas Ranch. They did an outstanding job to represent us as their sellers. Gina and Sue used all the marketing tools that are available on the market. It started with classical paper advertising in various brochures and magazines. Furthermore, they provided us with an exceptional 3-D tour of our house that was available to people shopping for homes online. Gina and Sue exceeded our expectations while we used them as our troubleshooters. While we already moved out of state they solved a water leak in one of the rooms by contacting several contractors and got the job done that even the buyers accepted that solution as first-class quality. We can highly recommend the De Legge team for your real estate needs."

"Sue and Gina are great! Honestly selling a home can be a difficult thing to do. However, selling a home you lived in for 20+ years and raised two children is "off the charts" hard. Sue and Gina took what was a difficult process and managed every step along the way. They communicated confidence and made us feel at ease that things would happen in a reasonable amount of time and that they would stay focused on getting the best value for our home. I believe that there are a lot of Real Estate professionals, but I don't believe that there are a lot who are as knowledgable and committed as these two individuals. My strong recommendation is. If you are selling a home you want them on your side, if you are buying a home you want them on your side."

"Sue and Gina De Legge are the perfect real estate team in San Diego's North County; I can't imagine using anyone else., We had just retired, and our goal was to sell our home of 30 years, buy an RV, and travel the country. We hoped to get the highest price in the shortest time - a challenge for even the best realtor. Their expertise helped us receive 2 offers above list price on our Olivenhain home after only 6 days on the market. We closed in 30 days with no fuss or issues. Their knowledge of the local market, the latest real estate marketing techniques and their incredible commitment to client service and excellence helped us to achieve our dreams - we are now traveling through Utah in our new RV, headed for Alaska!"

- Jack F.
Seller

"Sue and Gina are exceptionally knowledgeable about their market. They priced our home accurately to quickly receive a strong, qualified offer. We used their contacts to make the repairs they determined necessary and to do the staging they recommended. They did some beautiful marketing in advance of listing. Their pricing, preparation, and marketing paid off when we received multiple offers within a day of hitting the market. We accepted an offer above list price and Sue and Gina guided us through to close, graciously and quickly smoothing out the few wrinkles that appeared along the way. We couldn't have been happier with their expertise, professionalism, and imperturbable natures."

"Sue and Gina recently helped us lease one unit of our duplex, a duplex we bought through Sue in 2009. We were so impressed with her during that sale, we kept in touch with her over the years. Sue and Gina did an amazing job of renting out our unit. They worked tirelessly to keep bringing in potential renters and were patient with us during the vetting process. As busy as I’m sure they are with other clients, they made us feel like we were their only client. That’s the level of time and attention they gave us. They’re both extremely professional and always pleasant to deal with and were able to produce results quickly. I would not hesitate to recommend them."

"Sue and Gina are fabulous real estate agents. They are professional, personable, and get the job done. They helped us negotiate a purchase on our Rancho Santa Fe property against another potential buyer five years ago. When we relocated to Raleigh and had to sell our home, Sue and Gina were able to get the job done once again. They have great marketing skills, attend all of the showings to help overcome any objections, and to point out benefits and fine points to the potential buyers, and their interpersonal skills are what set them head and shoulders above other agents. Most agents are “order takers”. Sue and Gina actually sell and negotiate."

- Judy R.
Buyer & Seller


"Gina was amazing. Not only is she efficient, knowledgeable, and attentive, she produces results quickly. She found a renter for us in a week, which is not always easy to do in the middle of winter, and all of the candidates she brought us were high quality. She responds to emails, texts, and phone calls very quickly and makes you feel as if you're her only client. She also did a great job with the lease and addenda, as well as negotiating an earlier move-in date for the tenant. On top of it all, she's a very nice person and is always pleasant to deal with. She did an awesome job. I highly recommend her."

- Rob H.

"Sue and Gina worked very hard to get us the very best price on our home by utilizing their incredible marketing program and negotiating skills. In addition, Sue and Gina were always available and made us feel like we were their only clients. They always returned our calls, texts, and e-mails in less than an hour! We had a few bumps in the road when selling our home and it could have been extremely stressful. Sue and Gina were in complete control of the situation until it was resolved. We even decided to purchase our next home with Sue and Gina because of their extreme professionalism."

"Sue and Gina patiently worked through a hunt for the right house with us as we explored new neighborhoods and went through frustration in a competitive market. They expertly helped us craft our offer and represented us to the buyers to help us come out ahead of 3 other offers, getting us into our new home. We appreciated their perspective on the market, insight into the process and sense of humor throughout the transaction. Did we mention that they also helped us get an offer for our old home within 10 days and close in 30 days? Tremendous."

- Andreas & Julie M.
Buyer & Seller

"Sue and her team were excellent. We had the most difficult seller who had gone through multiple agents and so negotiations were extremely difficult. Sue helped us navigate through and get us the purchase of our dream home. Sue is extremely responsive, great at negotiating, and understands the balance of using pressure and finesse at the appropriate times. Being out of town during our purchase, Sue coordinated all inspections and really became a friend during the process. EXCELLENT AGENT!!"

- Seth E.
Buyer

"I have had such an amazing relationship with this dynamic duo. They not only helped me sell my house but stuck with me to find the house I am in now. I couldn’t recommend them enough and I do every time I hear that one of my friends will be needing a realtor. They go above and beyond and truly want to get all your needs met in what you are looking for. They also have your best interest when closing the deal and make sure nothing is left on the table. I would NEVER use anyone else!"

Sharon S.
Seller


"Sue and Gina are exceptional. They represented us in the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our current. In both transactions, they handled everything in a very professional manner. We got a very good price for the house we sold and they negotiated a very fair price for our new home. They were always available to answer any questions. And they were very patient with us, understanding that we had not done a real estate transaction in almost 30 years."

Doug & Joanne F.
Buyer & Seller

"Sue and Gina are a professional, knowledgeable, and energetic hard-working team. They were successful at selling our Rancho Santa Fe home in a timely manner meeting our expectations. Although both Sue and Gina are very busy, they always return calls promptly and are always looking out for our best interest. I would definitely recommend Sue and Gina to represent your best interest in buying or selling real estate in the Rancho Santa Fe/Olivenhain area."

- Al P.
Seller

"Gina was the best at what she does let me say that she was on top of every single little detail. She worked with me around my crazy schedule, meaning we went early in the morning to show me places, late at nights well it didn’t matter. This gal was always available anytime, She is a true caring agent that cares for your needs always and knows exactly, look no further and really give Gina a try, you will not be disappointed."

- Joe M.
Buyer

"My wife and I own many properties locally and have worked with many agents over the years. This transaction was handled on both sides by Sue and Gina and extremely smooth. I found their responsiveness was quick to question and the answers were clear and correct. I believe their individual knowledge of the Olivenhain area to be excellent and we have appreciated getting to know both of them through this purchase transaction."

Jim B.
Buyer

"Working Sue and Gina have been absolutely fabulous!! They were friendly, understanding of our needs and knowledgeable. I would work them again and definitely recommend them to friends or family. They were very good at explaining the process and handling all of our negotiations. Even down to Escrow documents, explaining what each document is and what it meant."

- Trent L.
Buyer

"Sue and Gina were such a pleasure to work with! They both are super hard-working and made me feel confident through the entire selling process. They are masterful negotiators, always looking for my best interest. And I worked hard to sell my house! Not only would I use them again, I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an A+++ team!"

Enrea J.

"Sue and Gina are an excellent team. We thoroughly enjoyed working with them as they were professional, pleasant to work with, experts in the market and guided us through the selling process with ease. We would happily refer them to any friends or family looking to buy or sell a house in the San Diego market. Thanks for your help, Sue and Gina!"

- Sylvia S.
Seller

"Sue and Gina are extremely well connected in Olivenhain and know this market like the back of their hands. They not only found us the home we were looking for, they also sold our previous home and did some very impressive marketing. However, what we probably liked most about them is their responsiveness."

- Higgi H.
Buyer & Seller

"Sue and Gina are consummate professionals. They know the market and how to sell your property. I know as I sold in 1 week and closed in 3. They are a good balance of negotiation, marketing, and social media skills. You couldn't ask for more. I highly recommend them for your Real Estate needs."

- Scott L.

- Dave & Bonnie H.

"We have had the privilege of using Sue to sell a property and now purchase a property. 1st class all the way. We got top dollar for our property we sold and she found a gorgeous home for our family to purchase. She listens and knows her business! We will use her again!"

Kim H.

"In the fall of 2014, we came to San Diego to look for a condo to use in the summers while visiting family here. Gina De Legge took us under her wing and showed us a good sampling of the condo market, based on our needs at the time. When we left to return to Florida we had given up on finding a suitable condo, but Gina kept in touch with us so that we felt we had a friend in San Diego. Then we changed our plans, selling our home in Florida and beginning the process of a permanent move to SD -- a grandchild can be a powerful motivator! Gina took our new parameters and, on our last day before returning to FL again, found us just the right property, a two-story townhome with a first-floor master suite. But she didn't stop there. While we handled the sale of our FL home, Gina took on the process of coordinating home inspections and other details we couldn't handle from afar, and basically made the closing process as smooth as possible, for which we were very grateful. Gina handled all this for us in a highly professional manner, with good suggestions in the purchase negotiations and helpful recommendations for contractors and other professionals as needed. Even well after the closing, she continued to assist us as we settled into our new home. We couldn't be happier in our choice of Realtor and are pleased to recommend Gina to any prospective buyer or seller in the San Diego area."

- Jim F.

"Sue and Gina recently helped my family secure home to lease in March of 2015, as my family and I prepare to relocate from the East Coast. I cannot imagine having a better experience working with another real estate agent. We originally met with Sue and Gina over a year ago when we were visiting the San Diego area and beginning to think about the prospect of switching costs. At that time they invested an entire afternoon with my family familiarizing us with the various neighborhoods in the North County and taking us to view properties, knowing that we would not be buying, renting or even moving to the area for a significant period of time. In between, then and now they followed-up with periodic emails and phone calls to keep us up-to-date on the status of the market and other relevant information. When we informed them recently that we would be moving to the area in 2015, but would be holding off on buying a property for 1-2 years, they were excited to help us find a home to lease. Needless to say, we have been very impressed with how they have been willing and interested in investing in their clients years in advance of us purchasing a home. We have also been impressed with how they are able to make you feel like you are their only client, even though their sales would demonstrate that, that is anything but the case."
