What our clients say...
Bob C - Seller
There is no substitute for experience. Cay absolutely knows the local real estate market, but even more importantly, he can guide you through all the ins and outs of buying or selling a house. He knows the best strategies and approaches to take in each situation. If you're selling, he knows how to properly price your house, and how to negotiate to get the best deal possible. If you're buying, he knows the strategies that will maximize your chances of success, especially in this hyper-competitive market. In addition to his expertise, Cay is extremely patient and kind. We hadn't sold a house in 30 years, but he always took the time to carefully explain every aspect of the sales process, and had no problem answering our many questions. He is a genuinely nice person, and a decent, pleasant human being. We have complete trust in Cay, and we hope to maintain a personal relationship with him long after the professional relationship is concluded. We totally, absolutely 100% would recommend Cay for your real estate needs.
Mona K - Buyer
Cay was very professional both at the time when we extend our offer and further into the process. I found him caring for his clients. He was communitive and persuasive which makes him a great buyer agent. He was always helpful with his advice but never pushy to accept his opinion. He also gave us some referral for remodeling project we have after closing.
Patsy M - Buyer /Seller
Cay and Carly are not only San Diego area experts and real estate savvy, but they are so much fun to work with. Their attention to detail and excellent customer service will make you feel comfortable with the entire process. I highly recommend Cay and Carly as your real estate agents to sell or buy, or BOTH!!!
Adri B - Buyer
We have been working with Carly for 7 years and 4 home purchases and 2 home sales! Since her dad, Cay, and her husband, Patrick, are both real estate superstars, you get such deep team expertise. They're incredibly knowledgable about the San Diego market but we've purchased homes in Idyllwild and Big Bear with them as well.
They are really well-connected in the community as well, they introduced us to our mortgage broker and we were able to refinance all of our homes with him. They also connected us to a 1031 exchange specialist to save on taxes.
Selling our home was the easiest experience EVER working with Carly. I only had to go to the home once, she took care of cleaning, repairs, painting, staging, tours, and all else that goes into selling. We sold way above our asking price and were thrilled.
When buying our home in the very competitive Poway School District, she was able to get our offer accepted even though there were many other offers at the same price point. We were SO LUCKY to get our forever home in Poway and I know it would not have happened without Carly. Highly recommended!!
Fallbrook - Seller / Buyer
We have been repeat clients of Carly for both purchasing and selling over several years now. She is an exceptional agent to have in your corner when making some of the biggest life decisions you'll ever make. Highly responsive, honest and thorough when it comes to the details of real estate. Our recent experience was selling-buying concurrently which can be extremely stressful but fortunately we had Carly. She's an All-Star and we couldn't be happier with our experience.
Douglas B - Seller / Buyer
Cay was my agent in two real estate transactions relating to my personal residences, the most recent having closed in September 2021. In short, Cay is the best! He is extraordinarily knowledgeable about real estate and real estate transactions. That said, if there was a question for which he did not have the answer, he ALWAYS got me the answer, usually in the same day. He pays attention to all details. He always kept me informed on status and developments, often on a daily basis. Cay makes his clients feel as if each is his only client, though such is far, far from the truth. Cay has a great reputation and very sizable client base. I highly recommend Cay and his team. You will not be disappointed.
Greg H - Seller / Buyer
Cay and team are a pleasure to work with. Very conscientious and detail oriented. They will not give up until you find the home of your dreams.
Cay's value really shined once we were in a negotiation and in escrow. He was fully engaged though the entire process. He brought forward many referrals of inspectors, lenders, and contractors so that we could immediately get the improvements started without having to find and vet new relationships.
After close of escrow Cay was out many times to ensure his contractor referrals where giving us their full attention.
You can count on a fully engaged and dedicated team when working with Cay.
It was turnkey service !
Paula B - Seller
Cay is an experienced, thoughtful and very thorough real estate agent.
He was hands on through every step of the sale of our home. Along with making staging recommendations, he was also able to guide us in making minor repairs and adjustments to show our home at its best. He was very familiar with our area and recommended pricing in accordance to real estate trends as they are today. I believe most people would be extremely pleased choosing Cay and his team as their next real estate agent!
VB - Seller
Cay Bonsack and his team worked well with listing and selling our property that included a custom home and ten acres of income-producing agricultural crops. This was not the usual and customary type of property most realtors were used to. Cay met the numerous challenges presented. He learned from us and we learned from him. He advised us along the way and was open to discussing many of the issues present. He honored our preferences as needed. His communication skills were excellent.
George R - Buyer
Thanks to Cay, we were able to purchase our home during the peak of the housing market.
As the bidding war was so insane, we were specifically looking for a good buyer's agent. Houses sell themselves these days, so it's easy for agents to get good reviews if they are representing sellers more than buyers.
Through reviews, we found out Cay helped a lot of buyers to purchase homes, and we are glad we went with him.
Although he was also surprised by the sudden competition that was pouring to the rural San Diego area, he helped us to place a strong and a smart offer, and our offer was accepted. We believe it wasn't an offer that can be suggested by an agent unless he/she had a lot of experience.
Also, we had a quite a difficult loan officer to work with, yet Cay was calm through the entire process and helped us go through it without panicking.
He also sent out handy men behalf of us so we can do minor fixes on our house before we can even move in.
He was professional, very easy to reach out to, and responded quickly. We'll recommend Cay to anyone who is looking to purchase in San Diego area.
