Scott was a consummate professional. Their entire office stayed on top of the process and guided the sell of our home efficiently and honestly. Their market analysis priced our home just right, which resulted in a timely sell. I will definitely use Scott again and recommend him without hesitation.

From the beginning, working with Scott has very easy. He was clear and thorough about the whole process in preparing the house up for sale. His history of not only San Diego but the local coastal properties was a big plus for me. It made me feel confident about his ability to get serious buyers and the best offers.
Scott was good and honest about his professional advise when it came to various offers that came in as soon as it was listed. My Experience with Scott was better than expected from the very beginning and to the end. I would most certainly recommend him to anybody, especially family and friends.
Scott did a very good job regarding the marketing and sale of my home. He happened to be the second agent that I hired. Right from the get-go, I noticed a substantial difference in the amount of interest generated that the open houses he held compared to the prior agent. And sure enough, Scott was able to attract an offer shortly after he listed the property. Mr. Booth will be the first real estate professional that I’d call if I am ever in the market for another San Diego coastal property.
Dear Prospective Homeowners/sellers:
It is our pleasure to recommend Kathy Evans and Scott Booth as excellent real estate agents for anyone looking to purchase or sell their home. We put our home on the market in 2013 with one of their competitors and were sorely disappointed. The loose oversight, minimal marketing, and poor follow through resulted in only a few showings and a failure of the house to sell, despite being reasonably priced, during a six month period.
We took the house off the market for a year then we relisted with Kathy & Scott. The experience, immediately, was night and day. When pictures were taken of our home, we were given tips, suggestions and strategies for staging. On the day of the shoot, it was ensured that the photographer took pictures of all angles and the weather was perfect for appropriately capturing the million dollar ocean view from our roof deck.
Not only was the house heavily marketed, we were provided updates and copies of marketing materials. This resulted in more showings the first week on the market than the entire previous six months. In five short weeks we had an offer on the table. We worked with Kathy and Scott to negotiate with the buyers, and successfully increased their offer to the mid-range of our listed sale price, despite the initial offer being low and outside of our range.
The escrow process, like everything before it, was thoughtfully managed with detail-driven oversight. The appraisal was handled successfully, and appropriately supported our offer. In the end, everything closed seamlessly, even early.
Our biggest compliments are the straight forward approach and effective communication throughout the process. Expectations were set appropriately and the house was priced with the proper research and in-depth knowledge of the community. We were provided timely updates and communication from beginning to close. It’s quite telling when you never have to call your real estate agent, because they were always one step ahead, calling us, and proactive every step of the way.
It is truly amazing the difference a good real estate agent makes and we highly recommend Kathy and Scott.

My wife and I worked with Scott Booth for over a year in our process to find a home in Pacific Beach. We were very undecided in what size, type, and price of property we wanted. Scott was very patient and informative through the whole process. He kept us up to date with new listings and continually offered help and advice to all our questions and concerns. When we finally did find the house we wanted, Scott was awesome!! He eased us through the whole loan qualification process; He helped us put together all the costs associated with being a home owner so there were no unexpected surprises; And he was great with negotiating and dealing with the seller and selling agent! Becoming a new home owner can be a very scary and stressful experience……but working with Scott made it one of the most special and memorable times of my family’s life! Scott Booth is a 5 star agent all the way around, and I strongly encourage all future home owners to trust him to find you your home!!

Scott is professional as well as personable. We have worked with him several times and he always makes us feel very comfortable with the paperwork and jargon that is sometimes hard for the lay person to understand. He takes care of all the nitty gritty and even provides a courier service for paperwork pick up. This so convenient when schedules get tough. I would recommend Scott to anyone who is looking to buy, or sell a home. You won’t be disappointed.
We had been referred to Scott by a friend who is also in the Real Estate industry. Scott was professional and courteous throughout the entire process of selling our investment property. I would highly recommend his services to my friends and family!
We loved working with Scott. He was fun to work with and he had impressive knowledge about San Diego and the home buying process, We asked a TON of questions and he was always quick to respond. He actually ended up teaching us quite a bit. He helped us through a very complicated purchase of a bank-owned property where he put in a lot of extra work and ended up getting us a great deal. We’ll definitely use him again.

Just a note to thank you once again for all your hard work in helping to sell our beach front property. I must say that you are the consummate professional. Your work ethic along with your knowledge of the market proved to be valuable assets in ensuring the deal got done. What I was especially impressed with is your attention to detail; sometimes making me a bit crazy, but really, that’s what real estate is all about: a mountain of little details. I also was quite impressed the way you salvaged the deal after it appeared it was going south by bringing your own lender into the game to finish things up.
The ultimate compliment has to be the fact that I own my own real estate brokerage company, and, after trying to market and sell this property with my own people, had to resort to the local expert to get it sold.
Thanks again, Kathy, and always wishing you the very best. If you’re ever in the OC, call me and we’ll have lunch. Take care.

To Whom It May Concern:
I am very pleased to write this letter of recommendation on behalf of Kathy Evans. Kathy was recently my real estate agent and represented me on the sale of my townhouse in Pacific Beach. I chose Kathy based on her years of experience in the beach cities area of San Diego. Before listing the property for sale, she spent a lot of time with me going over the local market and reviewing comparable sales in the area. She was attentive to my concerns and gave me a lot of insight into what really helps attract buyers to a property.
We listed the property with a value range that I was comfortable with and had two offers within one week, which is excellent considering the challenging real estate market and trouble with the economy today. We ran into some difficulties with my Homeowners Association because several owners were late with their dues and this was causing the buyer’s loan company much concern. This is where Kathy’s expertise really came in handy. She had to trouble shoot this with many calls to the loan company, the property management people and the other owners as well. We made it to the close of escrow and I was very grateful. She is also very good with e-mail updates and returns phone calls promptly.
I would recommend her if you are buying or selling a home today.
Prospective Home Owner:
My wife and I met Scott Booth a couple of years ago at one of his listings. We knew right away that we wanted to work with him to find our first home in Pacific Beach. His relaxed calm attitude and vast knowledge of the beach area set him apart from all the other realtors we had met. He was very patient, and within a couple of house showings, he knew exactly what we were looking for. It took us nearly two years to buy a house, but Scott made it happen. Having Scott on our side throughout this process made it a whole lot easier and less stressful. He was always available for any questions we had, and as first time buyers, we definitely had a lot. I would highly recommend Scott Booth’s services if you are looking to buy a home in San Diego, especially Pacific Beach.
