"Chad has helped us sell two homes within the past three years (2014 and 2017). Both times, we sold the homes within the first week and were very pleased with the sales price both times. (He has also helped us buy our most recent home, which proceeded very smoothly.) Chad's greatest virtues are (1) his in-depth knowledge of the house buying/selling process and the markets, (2) his communication skills and pleasant disposition, and (3) his exceptional work ethic. As a result of these attributes, Chad makes the buying/selling process extremely painless and easy. He assembles all of the paperwork and explains, in very plain language, everything that you need to know to understand what's happening. He provides very insightful advice on every aspect of the transaction, but his low-pressure approach gives us the freedom to ultimately make our own decisions. And we never once found ourselves waiting on Chad to complete a task to move the buying/selling process along; to the contrary, Chad was always one-step ahead and, if anything, he had to wait on my wife and I to sign the documents he'd prepared for us! I literally cannot imagine a real estate agent providing a smoother selling/buying experience than what we've experienced with Chad. I have recommended Chad to all my friends and family looking for a real estate agent in San Diego County, and I will continue to do so in the future without hesitation."

Ben and Alicia, Poway

Chad was a great realtor to work with. Very low pressure. He worked with us for over a year to find our dream home, and never pushed us to settle on something that wasn't right. He felt more like an educated friend than a realtor just trying to make money. During the home buying process he was very available-- on top of everything, texting and emailing us back at all hours whenever we contacted him. He was great!

Samantha and Denny

Chad was absolutely a pleasure to work with through our process of buying our first home. He made the whole experience easy to understand, stress-free and timely! He always made himself available and willing to answer and help with any questions...and we had a lot being first time home buyers. Chad has many years of experience and it is very evident in his work. We always felt like Chad had our best interests in mind and helped us close on the house we love within a 21 day escrow without any issues. I would 100% recommend Chad to anyone and everyone looking to buy or sell a home! We never thought our home buying experience would be so seamless...but Chad made it possible.

John and Samantha

"We met Chad Basinger at an open house as we were driving through a neighborhood that we liked in Escondido. We were impressed by his no pressure attitude, friendliness, and genuine personality. Since we began the home shopping process, we toured many open houses and met several realtors - Chad's qualities are rare in a realtor. We started touring homes with Chad and eventually went under contract on 2 different properties that didn't pan out. After numerous showings,throughout much of the greater San Diego area, we finally found the right home for our budget, lifestyle, and needs. Throughout the shopping and buying process, Chad was very accessible and responsive to our phone calls and emails. We never had to wait to hear back from him. He was flexible and accommodating with his schedule to meet our needs. Chad was always enthusiastic to meet us and help us with any questions or concerns we had. His no pressure attitude and patience were especially valuable during the shopping process. Chad offered solid recommendations for a mortgage broker and for home inspectors. We would gladly recommend Chad's services to anyone looking for a hassle free, smooth, and enjoyable home buying experience."

Johanna and Kevin, San Marcos

"Over the past number of years I worked with close to a dozen of realtors. I can say without hesitation that Chad Basinger proved to be the best. I got to know Chad when I started looking for a retirement condo for my parents. After 7 months of patiently monitoring Chad's emails with properties that fit my search criteria (an excellent service by the way), I finally zeroed in on one of the properties. Alas, when I arrived to look at the condo and met Chad there for the first time, the property did not fit my criteria. However, this meeting was not wasted. Chad was well prepared and came with the information about another condo that was for sale in the same complex. That property was much more suitable and we started the offer process that eventually led to a successful purchase. Throughout the whole process, Chad was very helpful with advice and very professional. He was always accessible and very prompt with his responses. This ensured a smooth transaction and resulted in a very satisfied customer, me. Whether you are looking to buy or sell - I would definitely recommend Chad Basinger as your realtor."

Leon, Rancho Bernardo-San Diego

"I have known Chad since elementary school. When my husband and I decided to start the home search, we did not think twice about using him. Chad's in-depth knowledge of the real estate market and the desired community, coupled with his professional demure led to the introduction and eventual purchase of our new home. His insight during the escrow process was invaluable. He was with us every step of the way."

Heather and Jim, Del Sur-San Diego

Chad is a first-rate real estate agent. His expertise is broad enough to encompass the full range of needs of a relocating family and deep enough to ensure that a transaction is handled professionally. I have confidence in his negotiating skills, and took his advice -- even when I thought he was being too aggressive. (He was right.) I very highly recommend Chad. More to the point, my daughter is moving to San Diego in the next couple of months and I have recommended that she use Chad to find and purchase her new home. I would not do that unless I had great confidence in his ability and integrity.

Brian and Linda, Scripps Ranch-San Diego

My son and his wife, knowledgeable in the San Diego Real Estate market, suggested Chad as the ideal realtor to assist me with my relocation from northern California to San Diego. Chad has proved to be outstanding in every category. He patiently endured a number of changes in strategy, from buying to renting, and changes in location of targeted properties from Rancho Bernardo, to downtown San Diego and then back to Rancho Bernardo, and all of this against a back drop of altering scheduling opportunities to accommodate my job interviews. Chad would prepare computer profiles for the property we would be viewing, complete with pictures, within seeming minutes of my requests. I would then pick out the candidates and Chad would promptly work out the logistics for viewing. I noted how considerate Chad was to the occupants of the properties we viewed. Additionally, Chad was very candid in pointing out to me detriments to the property which were not obvious, such as the traffic patterns with noise at times other than when we were viewing, and properties that had been occupied by smokers. Chad invariably put my interests ahead of a quick sale. Chad is the right person in crunch time. When impossible deadlines began to apparently exceed my availability, Chad gave up his week-end to get lease papers available on a Saturday, allowing me to keep on my tight schedule. I ended up leasing, initially, but I will return to Chad when my lease is up and it is time to buy. Chad gets my highest endorsement. I found him to be exceptionally professional, bright, knowledgeable and trustworthy.

Robert, Rancho Bernardo-San Diego

I first heard of Chad Basinger on a local real estate website as he was the listing agent for an investment condo I was interested in. He quickly made plans to show it to me as well as several others in the area. I ended up purchasing a single family house in the same neighborhood for a very fair price instead. Chad has a very low key, no pressure demeanor and is always very courteous to whomever he is dealing with. He is quite knowledgeable about the area I was interested in as he was actually raised here. He even helped me out by arranging to show the house to some prospective tenants before I actually took title so I wouldn't have to absorb the lost rental income. There have been a few problems since the purchase date, as there inevitably are with 45 year old homes, but Chad did not desert me after the deal was done. He has followed up and offered assistance, as well as much needed moral support, throughout the entire process and beyond. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home in the Rancho Bernardo area.

Sherisa, Rancho Bernardo-San Diego

Chad was very professional, yet fun, and helped us find a property that meet my criteria, as well as, fulfilled my husband's wish list. When we went out to look at properties, everything was pre-screened and available for a showing when we arrived. As we made our purchase decision, Chad was able to quickly get answers to our property-specific questions. During escrow, he handled the paperwork expertly and made sure the process went smoothly.

Phil and Melissa-Downtown San Diego

Chad exceeded our expectations in our real estate transaction. He was on top of every detail from the start and guided us through the process efficiently and effectively. He handled all of the required inspections and follow up in a timely manner and was always available, no matter the time of day or night, to answer our questions and give advice. His service to us was outstanding and we felt like he went above and beyond what was expected of him. We would highly recommend Chad.

Rob and Leigh-Rancho Bernardo-San Diego

Chad was very easy to work with and made an emotional time easy to get through. Chad is very knowledgeable with the North Poway area. I appreciated his efficiency in keeping me informed on every aspect of the transaction, especially since I am living in Northern California. Chad was always immediately available to answer any questions or concerns. I would definitely recommend Chad's services to anyone considering selling their home or purchasing one.

Linda-Poway, CA

Chad is the best realtor that any buyer could possibly have. He not only knows about realty, but is knowledgeable in taxes and all other aspects of property buying. He is a true advocate for the buyer and is very helpful in trying to get the deal completed. He is very thorough, trustworthy, and will work everything possible to make a dream come true.

Lori-Poway, CA

If you are seeking a realtor that takes the time to understand your needs/wants, works hard to find the right place and continues to support you even after the sale is complete, Chad Basinger is the right realtor for you.

I contacted Chad from out of town after reading many positive reviews. He took the time to listen to what I was searching for and asked the right questions. A week later I came into town for one day and Chad took me to see about six properties. All were very close to what I was seeking. With each one, Chad asked questions, paid close attention and learned more about what I wanted. When I left Chad knew exactly what I was seeking. He called me a week later to tell me about a place he viewed that met my exact needs. Chad had sent me the link earlier and I had dismissed the place. He called to get me to reconsider because he felt it met all my needs. I came back to San Diego, viewed the place and he was right.

We immediately wrote an offer and began the negotiation process. Chad walked me through the process efficiently and effectively. He was there to answer questions and provide sound advice every step of the way. Chad made himself available every time I called. When I left messages he responded back quickly.

Chad's support did not stop when the offer was accepted, he continued to work with me through the closing process and even helped me create a rental agreement for a rent back to the sellers.

I highly recommend Chad as a realtor. He is hardworking and committed to finding the right property. You will not be disappointed; Chad works hard for his commission.

Glenn-San Diego

Absolutely spectacular service and expertise! As for savvy marketing skills, I have never before seen brochures, online virtual tours and photos do a property that much justice. My property sold within minutes of listing, and we continued to receive multiple offers above the asking price. We ultimately achieved the highest price per square foot seen in the area in the last 3 years. Throughout the process, Chad always went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable. When an evil appraiser almost thwarted the deal, Chad made sure my voice was heard, and went so far as soliciting the buyer's agent to collectively contest the appraisal. Then when I questioned aspects of the inspection, Chad worked with me to understand and efficiently resolve each issue. Even after the sale, he provided copies of all pertinent data/forms on a handy USB. And finally, he knows the difference between a mean and a median, and who wouldn't love that? I could not be happier.

Debbie-San Diego

Chad was awesome from start to finish. He guided us through the process as first-time buyers, and remained patient and professional throughout. He showed us around homes in a number of areas, at different price points, and allowed us time to figure out our own preference. We cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone looking to buy a home. He went above and beyond on numerous occasions, and without his help we would never have been able to find the home we did.

Michael and Stephanie-Poway

I started working with Chad by chance and it turned out to be a stroke of luck. Chad helped me navigate my way through a complicated purchase, was a great sounding board during the process, and provided valuable guidance every step of the way. He was quick to return calls, proactive in relaying vital information, effective communicating on my behalf, and always willing to meet to review properties or discuss strategy. After working with Chad over an extended period of time, I feel a real sense of trust in him. Thanks for all you did, Chad!

Rich and Janine-San Diego

Chad was very communicative and diligent with helping me sell my condo. At one point when there wasn't very much activity he was able to reassure me that my property was in good hands. And in the end, Chad proved that by helping me get more for the condo than I thought I would.

Michael-San Diego

Chad is very knowledgeable and professional. He kept the process of selling our home moving along very smoothly. He returned phone calls and answered our questions very promptly. We would certainly use him again and recommend him to anyone else.

Paul and Laura-San Diego

We can't say enough good things about Chad. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and honest. He made us feel like we were the only people he was working with. If we had a question, he had an answer...and he always got back us quickly. He helped us sell our home and find a new home quickly. We were able to move out of the old home and right into the new one without a problem. The whole process of buying/selling a home can be stressful, so we felt very lucky to find Chad.

Nick and Meghan-San Diego

Chad was awesome from start to finish. He guided us through the process as first-time buyers, and remained patient and professional throughout. He showed us around homes in a number of areas, at different price points, and allowed us time to figure out our own preference. We cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone looking to buy a home. He went above and beyond on numerous occasions, and without his help we would never have been able to find the home we did.

Mike and Gemma-Escondido

Chad Basinger served as our buyers agent and his assistance was absolutely phenomenal.We were nervous first time buyers, and he patiently guided us through each and every step (some times several times through the same step). He helped us find our dream property in our dream location and we closed within 22 days! I highly recommend Mr. Basinger for any and all of your real estate needs.

Russ and Jayne-San Diego

"Chad is knowledgeable, patient, and genuine. After working with high pressure agents that didn't listen well, Chad was a breath of fresh air. He truly understood what we were looking for. And he helped us get the perfect place for our family. We love Chad!"
