J. M. | Buyer
I genuinely cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Adam Roark as a real estate agent this last year. My wife and I have been actively searching for a home in the Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Encinitas area since May 2013. In that time, Adam has been an extremely trusted resource. We saw approximately 40 homes during our active home search. Each home we viewed was approached the same way by Adam: with our best interest in mind. He is an extremely energetic and enthusiastic and truly helps you see the positives in each home. At the same time, he is very open and honest about concerns we expressed in our initial meetings. Any concerns we had, he would address from a perspective of "what's best for us." On more than one occasion, my wife and I fell in love with a house that was distinctly out of our budget and, even though it meant sacrificing a higher commission, Adam respectfully ensured we weren't motivated solely by emotion and reminded us of our self imposed restrictions. It did wonders to ensure a professional relationship grounded in trust. My wife and I recently purchased a home in Encinitas and the Offer, Escrow and Closing experience with Adam was incredible. He was able to work seamlessly with the seller's agent to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible. He expertly negotiated a competitive price as well as a closing cost credit. Due to the nature of my work, I travel quite frequently. This is where Adam really shined. In my absence, Adam scheduled the home inspection and appraisal and then attended both since I couldn't be present! It was truly above and beyond. Additionally, after the inspection revealed issues that needed to be fixed but wouldn't prevent the transaction, he negotiated an additional credit from the vendor to ensure we would not come out of pocket for repairs. As far as paperwork, he is very organized and worked around our schedule to make sure we had everything reviewed and signed on time. From a personality standpoint, he simply could not be easier to work with. He is friendly, respectful, knowledgeable and most importantly, genuinely cares about his clients. I was impressed with him from start to finish. Not only would I recommend him in the future, I actually already have recommended him to multiple friends looking to buy homes. I would highly recommend Adam to anyone looking to buy in San Diego county.
