"It is such a pleasure to give a give star review to Keith of the Huff team! We worked with Keith to sell our condo and then to buy our new home. He was professional, knowledgeable, honest, prompt and detail oriented. There are probably a few realtors that fit this decription, but Keith has something more that makes him special. He really listened to us, got to know us and our kids and our needs and desires. He was truely able to guide us in this process, helping us to make a sound decision free of much of the emotion that usually accompanies it. There was abosolutely ZERO pressure to look at homes outside of our budget or our needs. He was able to recommend other professionals for financing and inspections, etc., due to his extensive contacts in his field and his outstanding reputation. We like Keith so much, we wish he was our next door neighbor."

"Buying our first home was a big milestone for us and what could have been extremely stressful was made as smooth and efficient as possible by our agent Jason Barbato. He is beyond dedicated to his clients, cares deeply for them, and works tirelessly to make things happen. We had a very narrow location where we were looking, which also happens to be a very desirable area. Jason was always on the ball looking for leads and advising us "newbies" wisely in all real estate decisions, ultimately finding the perfect place to meet our current needs. We can't recommend him enough and truly can't imagine a better agent to work with."

"Ilana Huff is absolutely the BEST! She is extremely knowledgeable of the market in San Elijo Hills and all of North County. Ilana will work for you and make a point of keeping you informed of every step of the process. She really made us feel like we were her first and only priority. Ilana is also ethical and honest. It is also very apparent that she is well respected by and has good relationships with other agents. My husband and I had decided to move back to SEH after living in Orange County for five years. We were not in a huge hurry to purchase a house as ours was still under construction with a total kitchen remodel. We had looked at a few, but again, we just weren't in a rush. That was until Ilana called me about a house that she thought would be perfect for us and had not yet hit the MLS. I instantly fell in love with it and could see our family calling it a home. Ilana was able to get us in to see it before it hit the market and my husband fell in love with it too. Unfortunately, we learned that there were already several offers and they were holding an open house the next day. I felt heartbroken thinking we wouldn't get it. Ilana put so much trust in us and really went to work for us. She felt we could still get the house and told us exactly what to do with an offer. She wrote and presented the offer that night. The next day we learned that there were several other offers with ours being the only one that was contingent. Again, I was heartbroken. Ilana went to bat for us by contacting our realtors and getting them in touch with the listing agent of the house. Because of her negotiation skills and relationships with the other agents, the sellers accepted our offer. We put our house on the market three days later and sold it within a week. The whole time, Ilana kept all agents informed and in close contact with each other. If it had not been for Ilana's negotiation skills, ethics and trust in us, we would not have gotten our home. Ilana Huff and her team are exceptional!"

"Jason Barbato is an amazing realtor. He helped my growing family find the right home to meet our needs. He was so patient, supportive and helped me reflect on the dozens of homes we looked through. He helped keep my spirits up and not settle when I really needed it, as well as bringing me down to earth when my sights exceeded my plans or needs. I genuinely appreciate everything Mr.Barbato has done for us. Best of all he has become a friend and I would recommend him as a realtor to anyone who will listen. Thank you, Jason."

"Ilana Huff and her team were exceptional throughout the entire process of selling my home. Ilana walked me through the process, kept me updated on everything, and really kept on top of the sale. She kept in touch with interested buyers and kept me updated on the status of things. Due to the interest in my home, The Huff Team held Saturday AND Sunday open houses which sometimes included champagne and quality customer service. I chose Ilana to sell my home because she was the selling agent when I previously purchased the home. Not only was it a pleasure to work with her back then, but I knew that her knowledge of the San Elijo Hills area would really help my home sell. I highly recommend Ilana Huff and her team."

"Ilana Huff and her team sold our home in La Costa Valley. We were impressed with her listing presentation. We interviewed a total of 3 agents and hands down Ilana was the most qualified. Her friendly and none used car salesmen approach made us feel comfortable. Right from the start she had our best interest at heart. She was able to sell our home in record time and got us the highest price for our neighborhood. We set a new record and could have not done it without her marketing and negotiation skills. During the transaction her team walked us through every step until escrow closed. We ended up moving out of state, however we refer Ilana to all our friends and if we ever come back she will be the only agent we would trust."

"We needed to sell our home and find a new one closer to work. Ilana sold our home in a short time for our desired price. She then helped us find our new home. The new home she found for us was the right price and great location. This is the second time we have used Ilana for purchasing a home. We will use her again in the future."

"Jason sold our townhouse while at the same time helping us find and buy our next home. He is super knowledgeable and helpful, going above and beyond with every detail. He provided a steady stream of new places to look at that were tailored to our needs. We spent quite a long time searching for just the right place and he was patient throughout. An all around great guy to work with!"

"Jason Barbato helped us sell our house and buy a new one. He was excellent to work with. The timing for that kind of transaction is pretty critical and Jason went above and beyond to make sure all parties were lined up and on the same page to make everything work out. His communication with us was off the charts, and he never made us feel like we were bothering him when we came at him with our thousands of questions. He was clearly very knowledgable about every step of the process and helped us to be aware of what to expect. There were a lot of crazy twists and turns in the process, and I feel extremely fortunate that Jason was there to help us see it through."

My next home for sure will be thru Ilana and her team of skilled and talented agents. Congrats!"

"My husband and I worked with Keith Castiglione to buy our house in San Marcos. We met Keith during an open house event. At that point of time, we were wading through unknown waters and he was helpful to us pointing us in the right direction, even when we were not his clients. And being first time home buyers who are also fairly new to San Diego, we didn't just need a real estate agent. We needed a lender, a plumber, contractor - you name it. We had no clue about a lot of things. Keith helped us through all this. We were very comfortable with him from the very beginning. Keith walked us through the entire process and quickly understood the kind of house we wanted. He was professional, frank, upfront, and prompt to get back to our concerns. We wouldn't have found the hidden gem (our house) if it wasn't for him. We had a very narrow criteria regarding the kind of house we were looking for and are so happy to end up with what we wanted!! The house was perfect! He turned what could have been extremely stressful process to a smooth one and before we knew it we were owners of a home!! We would absolutely do business with him again in the future and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a house!"

"Keith Castiglione was our agent and we are so pleased that we met and worked with him. He was very patient and always available during our home search. I highly recommend Keith to anyone in the process of buying or selling their home!"

"We didn't just need a real estate agent. We needed a San Elijo Hills sherpa, an interior design consultant, a negotiations pitbull, a paperwork policeman and a part-time psychological counselor. (OK, so I guess we expect a lot.) Ilana Huff of The Huff Team provided that magical mix for us and made our entire home search, selling, and buying experience an easy and, dare I say, pleasurable one. She really got to know us and our needs, and was a true advocate for us in the process. She was not only amazingly responsive, but also very proactive, which made us feel that we really had someone looking out for us at all times. Her knowledge and professionalism were pivotal in helping us get the right price for our house and into a new one that we loved. We can't recommend her highly enough."

"I consider Ilana Huff to be the best real estate agent I have ever worked with! We were making a cross country move, which is an enormous task to begin with, but Ilana was the ultra professional during this stressful time. She went to bat for us, not afraid to ask for things representing us as buyers. She stayed in touch with me constantly and handled our not-so-easy seller without my ever knowing there were any issues. Not only is such a great professional, she also gives back so much to our small community here in San Diego. I recommend Ilana and her Huff team!"

"Ilana is the best! My wife and I met her by chance while we were looking for homes in San Elijo Hills, and immediately found her to be kind, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable about the housing market in North County. She assisted us with every step of the way, and her team was also very easy to work with. We will be working with Ilana for years to come and consider her a friend."

"Jason Barbato was professional and knowledgable throughout the entire process. He is an experienced agent that serves and cares for his clients. We will do business with him again in the future."

"Where shall I begin?! Ilana is amazing! She is knowledgeable and up to date on the north county real estate market. She has helped a number of my clients and friends sell and purchase properties. She has helped me find perfect rentals and handled the sale of a property that I was a tenant at. People rave about Ilana and everyone in my neighborhood knows who she is! They rave because she has earned the trust of her community one transaction at a time and she takes wonderful care of her clientele. I never hesitate to refer clients or friends to Ilana for their real estate needs."

"We used Jason to purchase our first home. It is in an in-demand neighborhood that he knows well. It was evident in our dealings with the other agent that Jason was actively working with him to get us into this house, even though there were other offers on the table. He put us in contact with fantastic people for lending and even some work once we made the purchase. When it comes time for me to move, Jason will sell my house and help me find my next one. No question. I could not have been better served. Any agent would be very hard pressed to exceed his standard of loyalty or professionalism."
