“It is with pleasure and gratitude that I write the following regarding our experience working with Michelle Serafini, Rosa Buettner, and the Serafini Buettner Group with Coldwell Banker Residential in La Jolla.

My husband and I were looking to buy our first home in the La Jolla area. Trusting them through the process and knowing when to be patient and when to submit an offer was the reason why we have the home of our dreams today. My husband and I both come from different countries, and we did not have our parents to advise and help us through this process. Michelle’s and Rosa’s trust was essential to us. Since we were first time home buyers, getting a home in La Jolla and in our price range was a challenge. Inventory was low, and almost every listing that came on the market received multiple offers within hours. We looked at approximately 30 homes before we made our first offer.




When we saw the home of our dreams online, we previewed the home with Michelle and Rosa the day that it came on the market, and submitted an offer within hours. Because of the listing agent’s past experience working with the Serafini Buettner Group, he knew how seamless the transaction would be. He trusted that we would close in 30 days with a conventional loan, and our offer was accepted.The best part is, our offer was not even the highest that was submitted out of eight offers that seller received.

This way I learned that who represents you in La Jolla or San Diego matters. A few months later, the market completely shifted, increasing prices due to the continued low inventory.

If it wasn’t for Michelle, Rosa, and the Serafini Buettner Group, we never would have had the chance to buy our first home. We are so appreciative for everything Michelle and Rosa have done for us, and we highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy in the coastal San Diego area. “




There are a few properties, perfect for first time home buyers, that our Group sold this year which were purchased in this price range by investors. As our clients mentioned above, who represents you can, and often does, make a difference in experiencing the joy or luck of it when purchasing a first home in La Jolla. If you are a first time home buyer, we highly recommend working with a realtor who specializes in the area of interest and who knows inventory before it gets on the market. Also, don’t be shy, and contact us if any questions arise. It would be our pleasure to be your trusted resource, advisors, and realtors.
