Client Testimonials

We can not recommend David and Julie Butler enough. We needed to sell our home on very short notice due to an unexpected move across country and David and Julie made what could have been a very stressful situation a very smooth and seamless process. They took care of everything for us from getting the house painted and staged (literally) while we were on vacation, to scheduling cleaners, to ensuring all of the details like a solar transfer ...

Melissa H.

I truly cannot say enough good things about the Butler Group team! Not only did we get the best sale price but they made everything about the sale process go as smooth as possible. Everyone on the team is exceedingly competent at what they do, from marketing to staging, negotiating for multiple offers to navigating through to the final closing. Yet, I have to single out Julie and David for being so impressive and effective in their respecti...

Robin G.

We used The Butler Group, and specifically David Butler, for both a new home purchase and sale of our home in the summer of 2019. They were fantastic, and they made the often complicated buying and selling process so much easier. David was responsive, thoughtful, and thorough, and he made us feel like we had a true advocate working on our side. On the buy-side, they prepared detailed analyses to help us put together a reasoned, strong (but...

Kevin & Alexa R.

We were impressed with the entire Butler team! Both Julie and David were great to work with from the beginning. We interviewed several agents and could tell that they were in a class of their own. They were experienced and had a great understanding of the local market. The marketing of our home was a reliably strong system that worked well for us. We were more than happy with the results and would recommend the Butlers to anyone. You won't ...

Shirla H.

We recently sold our home in the Torrey Highlands neighborhood of Rancho Penasquitos. We made the mistake of initially signing with a La Jolla agent who had previously managed a coastal property for us. Unfortunately, he knew very little of the Penasquitos area and was very slow to act as we watched interest rates increase seemingly daily. We were fortunate to exit that relationship and reached out to David and Julie at The Butler Group. ...

Jon & Cindy D.

Amongst the sea of agents in San Diego, David and Julie Butler's team truly differentiate themselves as the premier agency in the region. My wife and I have now worked with them on the sale of two properties (both at record prices) and the purchase of our dream home. We couldn't be more happier with their partnership over the last three years. We plan to continue to partner with their team in the future and highly recommend them to anyone l...

Sam & Wonju Won

David and Julie Butler’s team genuinely differentiate themselves as the premier agency in the region. They pride themselves on honesty, integrity, and a passion for being the best. We can attest to each of those attributes. My wife and I worked with them on selling our Rancho Penasquitos home, and we couldn’t be happier with their marketing and sale of our home. They staged our home beautifully, bringing in a lot of open house traffic a...

Mark and Dawn Z.

If you’re looking for a top tier real estate team you can trust, look no further than Julie and David! From start to finish, they and their team provided us with impeccable service, a top-notch marketing strategy, and results that far exceeded our expectations. Within days of listing, we receive multiple above ask offers and were able to close on our timeline. Julie and David are true experts in their field — they made buying and se...

Neel P.

We have bought and sold 17 different homes with our job moves throughout the country. We have had many good Realtors along the way, but none that come close to the Butler Group Real Estate. David and Julie were very honest, personable and professional. They have an excellent system in place from onset to completion. In the initial meeting they share their "Coming Soon" marketing, the staging process, the "going live" process, then the negot...

Pam & Tim Hundley

Dave and Julie Butler helped us every step of the way. We used the Butler's to help us buy and sell our houses. It all happened so quickly and they assisted us every step of the way. I am convinced that if we didn't contact them we would not have been able to negotiate so quickly to buy our house and then turn around and get top dollar for our old house. Dave knew the housing market inside and out. Having just sold multiple houses in the ar...

Dan & Nicole L.

Just by "chance" we were snooping around a newly listed home in Rancho Bernardo and the realtor pulls up in his custom wrapped SUV. David immediately introduced himself and invited us in to view the home. We made an offer and unfortunately, we're outbid by over $150,000. However, David was so understanding and eased our minds we would find another home we loved. David and Julie then came to our home to evaluate and advise us current value. ...

Barry & Sheri L.

They have a process in place and were always communicating with me, so I always knew what to expect next. Selling and moving can be so stressful, but they made it seem simple and smooth! After listing, we received multiple offers within just a few days and they negotiated the best price for our house. If you're planning to sell, don't work with anyone else!

William S.

The most organized, hardworking, knowledgeable real estate team you’ll find. I can’t say enough about the amazing experience and extraordinary service I received from Julie and David. They sold my home far beyond what I believed possible and found me a home I love at a fair market price (which is almost impossible in this inflated market). I will be a lifelong client for sure!

Danny P.

David & Julie were very professional and perhaps the best-selling agents I have ever worked with. We had to sell our house fast since we had a contingency in selling the house to buy another house we liked. David walked us through the strategy for selling the house and guided us every step of the way. He was very patient in answering all our questions throughout the process. We felt confident in their selling strategy and were impressed tha...

Rajesh M.

2021 has been a crazy year for real estate. We got lucky was able to start on a new construction project and we knew we were going to need a stellar agent to help us sell our current residence with our specific timing needs and goals. We are so glad we found the Butler team! From the initial meeting, we could tell that we would be taken care of. Julie and David worked with us closely to develop a marketing strategy, to prepare our home, whi...

Virginia K

We are pleased to have selected David & Julie as our selling agents.  From our initial meeting to discuss a marketing plan, industry trends, and local real estate environment, David & Julie are consummate professionals.  Selling a home can be very stressful, but their full-service real estate business helps to ease the process through continual communication,  ensuring the home is professionally staged, and strategic sales negoti...

The Kellys

I could not be happier with Dave and Julie Butler for selling my condo. I’ve been renting out my condo for 10 years and really had no idea what I would find when the last tenant moved out. Because I am out of town, they told me not to worry they would go to the tenant move-out walk-through and assess what needed to be done in order to list. Within a week, they had the condo in tip-top shape and sold it the next week for over asking! I nev...

Krista H. Del Mar

Just finished the process of selling and buying a home in this difficult market with Julie and David. They made a difficult and stressful process easy by staying on top of all the things that needed to get done in a timely manner with their team. It is very evident from the start that they know exactly what they are doing by their systematic approach to preparing and marketing our home. Julie & David provided a full service for us...

John & Alida H.

Julie and David exercise creativity and professionalism at every level. Whether you are looking to list your home for top dollar or need help finding your forever home in this aggressive market ~Julie and David will not only get the job done but will work to make sure your expectations are not only met but exceeded.

Julie & Justin Reid

Julie and David were exceptional throughout our entire transaction of selling our home. They brought their own buyer to the table which made it much easier since they were handling both sides of the sale of our home. We were able to get the price we wanted, got a commitment from the buyers in 9 days and were under contract in 15 days. My wife and I felt it was so easy... almost too easy if you could believe it. We kept waiting for a phone c...

AJ Hewitson

Perfect! Perfect! Perfect! What an Amazing team! We had a perfect experience with Julie and David Butler and their team in transition from sale of our house to buying our ultimate dream house. Somewhere we had lost our hopes with past knock off experience but when we met them, it went all positive for our family. We completely trust and had faith on their team. They helped us in every walk of the process very precisely, patiently and profes...

Babitha Nadar

Bottom Line (because that's what it's all about!): OUR HOUSE SOLD FOR OVER AND CONSIDERABLY ABOVE ASKING PRICE IN 4 DAYS. We can't be more appreciative of the Butler team who set up the automated process for 60+ viewings of our home over the course of a long weekend - all safely and respectfully during CV-19. Julie's concerted marketing campaign brought families far and wide to view our home, and we were able to keep appraised with real-tim...

Brian & Cheri Lofy

It was a pleasure to work with Julie and David Butler as they guided us through the sale of our Fairbanks Ranch home of 32 years. They were patient, respectful, never pushy though always providing support as needed throughout the process. With their guidance the house was prepared to be shown in its very best light. As a result of Julie and David's very successful marketing strategy, the ideal family was reached and our home sold quickly an...

Steve and Sylvia Ré

From the beginning, Julie and David were amazing to work with. When we first approached them, we were unsure that we wanted to buy and sell in this extremely competitive market. Even without the commitment, Julie and David, were more than happy to show us homes and neighborhoods we were interested in and provided us with a potential plan for selling our home. Throughout the process, they were always willing to discuss the optimal strategy a...

Wilmelenne Clapper

Dave and Julie where my neighbors and longtime friends. When it came time to sell my house, I knew exactly who to call. They are high character people, have a great work ethic, go the extra mile for their clients, are very knowledgeable of the Torrey Highlands area, and have an amazing team that is both talented and professional. They have a designer that helped me prepare my house for market. They walked the property and made recommendati...

Bill Drew

This is my second time working with the Butler Group Real Estate and both experiences have been excellent! David and Julie are professional, they communicated with us throughout the whole process so we knew when things were going to happen and how. They have a process in place and we were in awe of how smoothly the whole experience went. We didn't know what to expect in terms of selling our home during a pandemic but safety measures were pu...

Debby Couture

David & Julie were very professional. We felt confident in their selling strategy and were impressed that our house sold within days of being listed, noting multiple offers which resulted in selling our house higher than our list price. We enjoyed working with them!

Weijia Zhu

We had a great experience selling our house with David’s team. Everyone was very professional and kept the process moving very smoothly. David was very knowledgeable about the real estate in our area and how to get our home sold quickly. We would highly recommend David’s team and enjoyed working with them!

Perhaps the best selling agents I have ever worked with. Julie & David offer a thorough marketing strategy, property staging, initial and final negotiations. We achieved the best price on home due largely to the advice and skill of this San Diego real estate sales team. We intend to sell other properties through them in the future. This team will get you the best price by advising you on how to take the best marketing approach. You will...

David and Julie were amazing to work with and very professional. They had a great plan for listing my home and they also listened to what my needs were. The communication was great throughout the entire process and they did everything they could to make sure that I was happy with what was going on. I would highly recommend them to anyone buying or selling a home in San Diego.

Devin Hill

We want to thank David and Julie Butler and their team for quickly selling our house.  David obviously know how to get the best price in the shortest amount of time.  We had interviewed several realtors and selected David after much consideration. Within a startlingly short period of time our house was prepped and staged (for no additional cost) for an open house.  Our friends and relatives were astonished at the transformation and beaut...

Mohan K Rajesh

Wynn was wonderful to work with from start to finish in selling my home. Her and her team were very professional, always available, and had a perfect marketing plan in place to sell my property fast and at it's top value. There was a detailed outline given to me of the entire process so it was always clear to what was happening to have my property ready for sale - simplest sell of all time! I would highly recommend using Wynn if you are in ...

Adam J Andrew

Wynn really cares about her clients, and was able to sell our home in a tricky market. Her attention to detail and knowledge was excellent, and we were very happy to have her negotiate the sell of our home. I would highly recommend Wynn for any of your real estate transactions!

Wynn was incredible to work with. She was a consummate professional and extremely responsive. Her team had a clear plan and I trusted the process which benefited me and my family greatly. I would highly recommend Wynn.

Don Cross

Chase was top notch professional, listened to our specifications and completely responsive to showing us homes—even last minute. I’ve used Gore-Butler real estate for almost 15 years now and wouldn’t consider anyone else when buying or selling a home. Chase considered every detail and found us the PERFECT home!

Wynn is awesome! I wasn’t in a rush to buy, and was particular about what I wanted. Wynn took the time to understand my needs, and kept on top of the market to help me find the perfect place. We spent lots of time over many months looking at places. She’s very patient, has a great sense of value and Feng Shui. Once we found a place and went into Escrow, she and her team were thorough with all the details to be sure the transaction was s...

Gary Zimble

We met Chase randomly looking at a property about a year ago. We didn't have an agent and I'm glad we didn't. He was extremely attentive to what we were looking for, kept us up to date on new listings, was always ready to show us properties (even on very shirt notice) and all around an honest guy looking to make sure we get OUR new home. We liked him so much that we asked him to sell our house as well. Really appreciated his service. Hopefu...

Annie Pham

If you want to sell your home fast and stress-free and need an agent who responds to you right away at any time of the day then you need to call Chase Penrose. Chase was recommended to us by a colleague whom Chase had helped to sell their home and bought another home. Chase was very responsive and took care of everything and I mean everything. All you have to do is to turn the key over to Chase and make some decisions. Chase would take care...

Doug Nguyen

Chase was phenomenal from our very first interaction to the very end. You can really tell a lot about a person by their actions. Chase was prompt to all meetings, kept us informed, and was always available to answer our questions. He made both our selling and buying experiences easy and fun! We had so many questions and Chase was able to display his industry knowledge by answering each and every one of them. Chase was able to provide an ...

Chase was very professional in dealing with me and my family during the entire process of house tours, offering, and closing. He provided his expert opinion when requested and guided us respectfully throughout the process. He is very responsive and even when I had to bug him during after hours, he was quick to respond. I would very highly recommend Chase for any respectful, honest, and professional real estate transaction.
