With great skill and expertise, he helped me make formal offers on a total of five or six different listings over an 18-month period, before success was finally achieved with the purchase of a nice condo in Carlsbad that met many challenging criteria. Due to focus on my job and frequent out-of-town travels during the above house hunting, my dad was my stand-in to evaluate new listings as they came up. But though my dad had time on his hands, he lives some 600 miles up north, and had to rely on scheduled air lines instead of driving down at will. Thus my dad's "help" surely put extra stress on Jacob in his role as buyer's agent. But far from even hinting that it was a burden, Jacob was unfailingly upbeat and responsive to all our scheduling needs. Add to that the many taxing questions that only a first time buyer would be asking. Jacob never once showed any frustration. He was always calm and thoughtful in skillfully advising us in the many problem resolutions. He exercised commendable diplomatic skills, even in stressful late night communications/negotiations with the selling parties. We also benefited from Jacob's hard-to-match, deep, and broad expertise pertaining to local real estate history and matters, gained first from his perspective growing up all over the area and now as a professional working the stomping grounds of his youth and school days, Kudos also for his part time gig in high school sports coaching, adding credential to his professional integrity cited by a reviewer and client in another online posting.

We knew instantly that he was a man of honor, integrity and trustworthiness. He took on the colossal task of getting us the home of our dreams in less than three weeks! Always with a smile and with steady resolve he took care of everything while I was five hours away from the area that we purchased the home. He made us feel totally at ease. We are delighted to have found this home and largely in part by Jacob's personalized, hardworking dedication and clear vision for what we were looking for. The house he found for us is uplifting and inspiring for my aging mom and I. Jacob went above and beyond his call of duty with the utmost client-focused service--always professional, reassuring and determined to make it happen! He was so resolute, engaging, kind, and focused on our every need! Everything went so smoothly and within three weeks we were in our new home! We couldn't be happier!!

Jacob struck us as knowledgeable without being pushy. We were impressed by his perspectives as a native San Diegan.  And when he followed up a few days later over email, it was obvious that he had listened to us (not a generic marketing email!).  So we decided to work with Jacob and we are grateful that we did. Every step of the way, he went above and beyond. He was hyper responsive, extremely diligent, and always candid. And when we found the home we would buy, Jacob introduced us to a contractor, a landscaper, and even a window expert. We are thrilled to be moving to Encinitas and couldn't be happier with our new home. Most important, we couldn't have done it without Jacob!

My wife and I bought our first home in October of 2019. Being first time home buyers, we didn’t know much at all. We did know what we wanted in a home, and Jacob listened. He always offered advice without forcing opinions, and is extremely knowledgeable of the San Diego County area. He put together a strategy and plan towards our wants. He answered any questions we had in a very timely manner, and kept us informed, every step of the way. Most importantly, he got stuff done. We were able to close escrow in 3 weeks! Can’t wait to work with you again, Jacob. You made a stressful process enjoyable!

Buying a house for the very first time can be very intimidating and scary experience. However, with Jacob Driver as our realtor, I could not have imagined a better person to guide us through the process.
