Jeff Pastore helped me with the sale of a rental house I owned on University Heights, along with his wife Selise who did the staging of the house. Jeff was instrumental in resolving all the issues that arose in the course of the sale leading up to a timely closing of escrow. Not only was Jeff diligent, ethical, quick to respond, a critical thinker, and action driven. Both him and Selise treated me like I was a family member, and did all that was necessary to overcome any challenges. I could not have been happier with the outcome, and I will be certain to refer Jeff to my friends, family member and customers in the future.
When it came time to sell my late parents’ home and extra lot, Jeff was recommended as an estate sales expert. The house sale went so smoothly, there’s little to say: Jeff flawlessly advertised the property, secured multiple offers, and negotiated and closed the sale. The real test, though, came with the second property, one of those projects where (truly nobody’s fault) a number of buyers backed out. Not only did Jeff negotiate us excellent compensation for their backing out—but the last-minute cancellations were a long test of character, which Jeff passed with flying colors. He never lost heart or sense of humor, but communicated faithfully and worked ceaselessly until we found the right buyer. Through the easy deal, and the tough one, Jeff Pastore showed both skill and—much rarer, in my experience—character. Highest marks on all counts. Thanks, Jeff!
My husband and I were referred to Jeff and Selise by our neighbors when the house we were renting was put up for sale and offered to us before it went on MLS. We initially contacted them to facilitate that sale, which would have been easy peasy… but these two do not settle. They took an entire afternoon to show us what other options may be available and in all we looked at probably 15 homes in the weeks that followed, being careful not to lose the original prospect but also ensuring all of our options were on the table. They juggled the various irons we had in the fire, and educated us on every aspect of home buying, never treating us like the lost newbies we were. Jeff said several times through the process, “We want happy deSalvos,” and they never took their eyes off that goal. We are happy, indeed! Jeff and Selise are a dynamic pair, made even more valuable by their network of people to support the sale. I took their referrals on lenders, inspectors, even a CPA to help plan a financial future in the year after buying a home. Everyone we worked with was world class. I put full trust in them and everyone delivered. Jeff and Selise understand that relationships between themselves and buyers/sellers should be life long. They put in the work to ensure the purchase of our little starter home was perfect, and we plan to use them for any future sales or purchases for a lifetime.
My wife and I met Jeff Pastore ten years ago when we moved to the San Diego area. We had originally planned to buy a house. But after countless weekend hours that Jeff spent showing us homes, we decided it did not make financial sense to buy at that point. But instead of getting upset or giving-up on us, Jeff immediately put all his effort into arranging a lease for my family, with minimal financial gain for himself. Several years later, we were finally ready to buy. Unfortunately, we were settling in Temecula.
But of course we approached Jeff before any local real estate agent. Despite the distance, he graciously accepted. And again, after countless weekend hours Jeff spent driving up to Temecula and showing us properties, we finally found our dream home! We have done other business with Jeff since then. He also manages our property in San Diego, and has done an amazing job. My family feels blessed that we were fortunate enough to meet Jeff. He is by far THE MOST hard-working, conscientious, intelligent, honest
real estate agent I have ever met… period
You just couldn’t ask for more in an agent! Jeff went way beyond the call of duty often! I’m from out of state and his guidance and help enabled me to close on the perfect condo in about a months time! Kind, friendly, organized and everything good you can imagine!

Jeff helped us buy a condo in 2009, sell the condo in 2015, and is now helping us buy our next house. Jeff truly looks out for his client’s best interests. He showcases professionalism, honesty, and hard work.Very responsive, and always willing to answer questions during the buying and selling process. I highly recommend Jeff. We have referred several friends, all of whom have been very happy with his service. Buying and selling property can be one of life’s biggest stressors, having a professional like Jeff is invaluable!
Jeff Pastore is an excellent realtor. He has helped us buy and sell rental properties in San Diego. He is always professional in every aspect of the transaction. He knows all of San Diego well and is up to date on current market trends. He is hands on throughout the whole process. He checks in regularly to ensure you are comfortable with each aspect and handles difficult situations like a pro. He is there for the inspections, appraisals, open houses. He has excellent and reasonably priced contacts for repairs, termite issues, loan needs and advertising photographers. Jeff makes the process of buying and selling an enjoyable experience. I would highly recommend him and will definitely continue to use his services.
I am about to conclude my sixth transaction with Jeff Pastore. He has been exceptional to work with. I find that trustworthiness is the most overlooked attribute of real estate professionals. Folks, buying a house is not buying a car or a tv. You need a good negotiator but you also need some you can trust to make sure the home inspection is done properly, the termite inspection performed by a reputable company, the price you’re paying or receiving is the best deal to be had. Jeff has extensive knowledge of the San Diego area and, more importantly, takes the time to get to know what you’re looking for as a home buyer. I highly recommend him for buying or selling your home or investment property
Jeff helped me buy — and several years later — sell the same house. His service was outstanding and detail-oriented in every way. He made the process as smooth as possible and insulated me from potential problems whenever they arose, with thoughtful solutions. I recommend Jeff’s services as highly as possible. I plan on using him again in any real estate transactions. I gave him four stars (rather than five) in the above negotiation section only to keep him humble.
Jeff was a professional every step of the way when we were looking at selling. He promptly replied to my email request for comps in our neighborhood. He took his time to think of every possible angle for us in regards to selling, refinancing or short-selling before presenting his thoughts to us. His personal service is invaluable.
Jeff was a great agent and we were lucky to have him in this challenging market. He helped us get a great price for our home! I can be a very pushy and demanding personality and Jeff met me at every step and every question or concern I had throughout the process. I am very happy with his service, honesty and commitment he provides every client, no matter the size or location of their home! He truly is a great agent and he does care about his clients! Thank you Jeff!
Jeff did a wonderful job for me, fighting to get me the best deal possible on the sale of my house. He was patient, knowledgeable, considerate of my ups and downs, and pushed me when I needed it! I highly recommend him for his professionalism and support.
Jeff has been such a wonderful resource for us. We have sold 1 home and purchased 2 others with his guidance as our real estate professional. We are very busy with job’s, family etc. and appreciate his attention to detail and focus on our preferences so we are not spending time reviewing properties that don’t fit into our plan. Both our primary residence and our income property are exactly what we were looking for, well within our price range and in the locations we chose. Jeff listened carefully to what we said, responded to our questions and then presented us with properties that were within our criteria to chose from. He also negotiated the best price then found financing that was very competitive. Needless to say, with his knowledge of the area, and his attention to detail we will come back to him again. We highly recommend Jeff Pastore to family and friends.
Jeff Pastore and his team are very professional, they will give you A+ service. If you are looking for an honest, trustworthy, caring and experienced team then please give him a call. We purchased our house 2
years ago and couldn’t be happier. We thank Jeff for his hard work and dedication to making our dream
of owning a reality.

My husband and I met Jeff Pastore when we purchased our single family home – Jeff was the sales agent. We were very impressed with his professionalism, honesty and solid real estate experience. The market is saturated with real estate agents, but those like Jeff who have vast experience, solid understanding and integrity are very hard to find. I have several long-time friends who work in real estate, but when it came time to sell my condo in such a difficult market, I knew I needed Jeff’s guidance. Thanks to Jeff my husband and I now own the house of our dreams and were able to sell the condo investment that was causing us a financial drain – what a relief that was! I just want to shout Jeff’s name from the rooftops!
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Jeff while looking to purchase our first home a few years ago. Having very little prior experience looking for a home, I had a million questions about everything.
Jeff was awesome in this regard! His knowledge of purchasing short sales, foreclosures, and regular sales was expansive. Anybody who has purchased one of these types of properties can tell you how stressful it can be. Jeff was quick to educate us on what to expect during every step of the process. His easy-going demeanor helped my wife and I learn so much about the plethora of procedural hurdles one comes across when purchasing a home in today’s real estate market. But where Jeff really shines is in his tenacity to make sure his clients get the best possible deal. Jeff showed us more than 80 homes over several months to help us find the right place for us, at the right price-point, in an area we are now proud to call home. I seriously doubt there are many Real Estate professionals who would put forth that amount of time and effort on any single sale. In addition to all this Jeff really cares, and it shows. He cares about his clients happiness, not only during the sale, but even afterwards when most have moved on.
All these reasons are why it is very easy for me to recommend Jeff Pastore to anyone looking for a great real estate agent, you seriously will NOT be disappointed.

I am extremely pleased to have Jeff as my agent; he came to me recommended by a friend, and I am very pleased with the outcome. Not only was he knowledgeable with his field, but for the most important
factor was his integrity and honesty. I felt very comfortable with him and felt very sound that his main priority was not to make a profit from this venture, but to ensure that I was satisfied in every aspect possible. Will highly recommend him to anyone interested in purchasing a home.
Living in Mississippi and trying to sell a house in San Diego is not an easy feat. Jeff was recommended to me by the company that did the rental of my house. Jeff’s knowledge of short sales and his communications skills were excellant. This made for a successful business situation. He sold the house in less time than he anticipated. It closed with no issues. I can certainly recommend Jeff as a very professional and honest agent. It was a pleasure to work with him on the sale of my home.
Jeff represented us in the purchase of our home last year. He treated us as clients with utmost respect and professionalism. He helped us through the home buying process so that we were able to get the best house for us at the best price possible. Jeff put us as clients first and demonstrated his integrity as a real estate professional in word and deed.
Jeff is the most caring person I have come across, he listens to the voice of the customer but gives his professional advice in a way that makes sense and gives you confidence that he has your best interests at
his heart. He also goes above and beyond helping people, not only his clients but even the sellers/buyers. I have observed his people skills personally and it is this good people skills that makes him successful.
A good honest professional.
A friend of mine introduced me to Jeff when I mentioned that I was looking into buying a condo here in San Diego and I couldn’t be happier with his services. Jeff was absolutely amazing! He is the most patient, knowledgable and trustworthy realtor I have ever met. His honesty, genuine concern and
assistance for me throughout the whole process was unbelievable. I would highly recommend Jeff if you are looking for an honest, friendly and professional realtor here in San Diego. He truly goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of. 5 stars!
Jeff is great. His ease and patience explaining the paper work and working out the final details between seller and buyer made the whole process a pleasurable experience. Should we ever need a realtor again Jeffs the man. No doubt about it.
I bought my first property with Jeff. Being a first time home buyer, I wanted to take my time searching for the perfect property. Jeff had the patience to show me countless properties and answer both simple and complex questions. Having lived in several parts of San Diego, Jeff has a background and experience to act quickly when a great deal comes up as well as walk away when the terms didn’t make sense. Given the current housing market, buying a house is ideal but not alway easy. This is where one of Jeff’s many values is highlighted. Attempting to buy a short sale and foreclosed on property can be complex and frustrating. Having an agent that knows the paperwork, understands how to strategically interact with the 3 or 4 parties involved in the transaction and has the ability negotiate tactfully is key. I successfully purchased a short sold multi unit property with Jeff’s help. He managed to convince the bank to choose my offer over 2 all cash buyers. Post sale, I’m proud of my new purchase, but Jeff’s service doesn’t stop there. He has been a great resource for providing references for plumbers,
electricians, roofers and structural engineers, you name it. Working with Jeff has been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to working on another home run purchase in the future.
