We met Ehab at the urging of both our children when we decided to move to San Diego. (My daughter worked with him and my son bought a house through Ehab.) From the beginning we could tell he was a low pressure real estate agent who would not try to push us into buying something that didn't thrill us. He is very knowledgable about the San Diego area real estate market and showed us homes in different neighborhoods so we could decide where we wanted to live and then focus on which house. He educated us about the California specific process of buying a home. When we chose a home, he set up our inspections at our request. Everyone he recommended (including a mortgage bank) was excellent at their jobs. In addition, he was patient and very personable and made the stressful act of buying a home in an area that is new to us actually enjoyable. We highly recommend Ehab to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Ehab was the dream realtor - well informed, knowledgeable about the industry and process, very responsive to my emails, texts and calls, and very organized. He was on top of all the details, kept me informed and we ended up selling my house for well above asking. In fact, it set a record for the neighborhood. I will be recommending Ehab to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in San Diego

Ehab far exceeded my expectations in the service he provided, starting with the market analysis and determining the right listing price, to advising me on preparation for showing, review and negotiation of the contract and subsequent steps. He responded to my questions promptly, and handled many of the details so that I did not have to. I have been through several real estate transactions and he is far and away the best agent I have ever worked with. I cannot recommend him enough!

Ehab was absolutely the best agent with whom to work. He really listened to what was important to us which helped us to quickly find the property that we love. He guided us through the process, recommending other great professionals (like our mortgage broker), answering our many questions (and some we didn't know to ask), establishing a relationship with the seller agent, and keeping track of all the details necessary to close in less than 30 days. I don't hesitate for a second to refer Ehab. Work with him. You won't be sorry.

Ehab helped us quickly find a rental property two years ago in a 4 day period after a cross country move and a fiasco prior to finding him. We were so pleased at his tenacity, we had to use him again when we wanted to purchase our forever home. We reached out in June 2021 and after one week of looking, found our forever home and we were moved in LESS than 30 days later in the most horrendous, competitive market. There were multiple offers on the home and ours wasn't the highest, but he again used his negotiation dominance to land us our dream home. We are so happy and have met him and couldn't recommend him enough!

Myself and my daughter were very impressed meeting and working with Ehab Ismail. He took my wants and needs to find me the perfect home in San Marcos. I can say I also consider him my friend now. Very knowledgeable in the realtor business. Plus he enjoys what he does. I would highly recommend Ehab for your real estate needs.

"Ehab was a game changer. Never did I think we would purchase a house on our first offer, in our desired neighborhood, get credits, and close in 21 days. He did the best job of connecting us with the right team, and always helped us balance realistic expectations while also encouraging us to go for it. He was also incredibly communicative and available, and really was fabulous at listening to us and hearing our needs. He is truly such a gem and we feel SO lucky to have been able to work with him. THANK YOU EHAB!!!"

Ehab is the best of the best. He's personable, easy to talk to and makes all the time in the world for whatever you need whenever you need it, then when the time comes to get down to business he gets it done! As a buyer, I appreciated that he was very responsive, which is so important in this crazy market when you must jump on any interesting listings immediately and navigate nail-biting bidding wars. When we first started looking, he was very patient and low pressure and took the time to really understand my likes and my wants based on the homes we were seeing. When I was ready to put in an offer, he really took the intensity up several notches with his pricing analysis and crafting a competitive and creative offer based on his knowledge of the market and developing rapport with the seller's agent. We won after two rounds against 15 other offers. Escrow was very smooth as well. He was in constant communication, helped me through every step of the process in great detail, was a great help with inspections and worked really well with my lender. I would be thrilled to work with Ehab again in the future.

Ehab worked with us and was very patient as we needed time to understand the real estate market here in San Diego. We were on a more limited budget than many others and he was knowledgeable about what neighborhood currently was a good option for us. I would recommend Ehab without reservation. Super responsive, hard working, and pleasant.
