I can help you with your all your San Diego real estate needs.
And don’t take my word for it. Here’s just a sampling of what my happy clients have to say about me.
“A complete professional”
Kathy and I wanted to thank you for all your help on both the purchase of our new house and the prompt sale of the old one. Amazingly, we only met you a few months ago, and yet you have played such a helpful and important role for us ever since.
It has been interesting to see you switch gears from working for us as buyer’s agent and then move into the role of selling agent. You were a complete professional in both roles — and in particular, your attention to detail and your advice and guidance were helpful at all stages of both transactions. We have been involved in over 25 real estate transactions over the past 30 years, including homes and investment properties in 8 states, and we have had dealings with dozens of real estate agents. You rank with the best of them anywhere.
In addition, in my professional life, I am responsible for teaching law students to understand and maintain the highest standards of professionalism, and so I generally try to be observant of all professionals in action to see what is effective and useful. I noted from the start that you always exhibited careful thought, attention to detail, and a consideration of ethical issues, which are all hallmarks of top level professional behavior.
You are a credit to a competitive and difficult business, and we will recommend you to anyone we know who is involved in a real estate transaction in the San Diego area. Thanks again, very much.

“Hard work and dedication”
This is to enthusiastically thank you for your professional advice, experience and guidance in purchasing our new, beautiful home.
After 15 years living in one home, Gary and I weren’t so sure we wanted to get into today’s real estate market. However, we had fixed up our old place about as much as we possibly could and were hopeful that we could trade up, selling our house and buying a new, slightly better one. We were fortunate to find you! You do not see any part of the home-buying process as a game, but rather a way to connect two parties in a transaction that’s a win for all. From finding an exquisite home to negotiating a great purchase price, facilitating the documentation, escrow, home inspection, and move-in date, you diligently and fully answered all of my questions. You promptly returned all of my phone calls and emails, working around my busy schedule.
I got home from work today early enough to watch day turn to night, the sky change from bright blue to pink, then rich purple and finally deep blue; to see flocks of birds fly over the mountains, and to play with my dogs in our new half-acre yard. Our new place truly feels like a refuge, and several friends have been amazed at the beauty of the house and the hilltop setting. Through your initial suggestion, which I pursued with the mortgage broker, we were able to keep our first home for rental income. And at the end of the purchase, we promptly received the rebate check offered through your company — a wonderful and rare bonus in the real estate industry. Through your hard work and dedication, we now own a very special home that meets all of our needs, and many of our dreams. We can’t thank you enough.

“A true friend in the world of real estate”
Mindy and I were initially attracted to a HouseRebate.com for two reasons. First, the web site was very easy to use and clearly presented nearly full listing details, including street address and comparative sales information, which we have not found anywhere else. Second, cash back. We are both huge fans of discounts, though we are not terribly keen on sacrificing quality of service. In an industry where the commission is typically a straight percentage of sales price, a burgeoning market means that a Realtor’s services cost more to both the seller and the buyer (even if indirectly). HouseRebate.com’s commission rebate offer was both unique — and a godsend.
A quick phone call put us in touch with you, a HouseRebate.com agent, whom we immediately recognized as confident, competent, and focused on our goals and desires in a home searching process that can often be fraught with stress and hassle. Mindy and I had both purchased condos before, so we knew some of the trials we might face. To our delight, you took us to see several homes and helped us to refine our idea of what type of home would be the most satisfying to us today and for many years to come. That is not to say that you steered us in any particular direction. You asked the important questions, listened carefully, and offered up points for us to mull over. When we finally came to the house that we live in today, we knew it was right for us.
Mindy and I like to do our homework, so we were pleasantly surprised by the wealth of insight you brought to the table, beyond what either of us had experienced before. You very handily and faithfully executed even our most aggressive offers in a housing market that has not recently favored buyers. We really felt like you understood all the important dynamics of the offer negotiation and escrow processes and helped us to be focused on performing all the necessary steps without unduly preoccupying us with the minutiae. In short, you not only kept us on track, but helped us understand the process as well.
We feel like we found a true friend in the world of real estate. The rebate didn’t hurt either!”

“We love our new house!”
We had a great experience working with Dan Rubenstein of Houserebate.com, who helped us sell our old house and purchase our new house. Dan worked hard to sell the house we were in and to get us the new house we wanted, and saved us $13,583.00 in the process. We would recommend Houserebate.com to anyone!”
Dan, thanks again for all you did. We really love our new house and all four of us are very happy here!

“None have worked as smart as Dan”
We had a great experience working with Dan Rubenstein of Houserebate.com, who helped us sell our house in a slower than normal real estate market. Dan had a very good grasp of the market, which gave us great comfort evaluating our options. I have worked with several agents over the years sell properties that I own. Many of the agents have worked hard, but none have worked as smart to sell our house as Dan. We would recommend Houserebate.com to anyone!

“We are in our dream home”
Dan Rubenstein was our realtor in purchasing our home that was a short sale. We all sat by while the seller and bank negotiators painstakingly went back and forth with little progress. They wouldn’t let Dan help and this home we loved was going to go into foreclosure and we would lose it. Dan asked if they would please let him make one more try negotiating with the banks. Dan took over and closed the deal and we are in our dream home. Dan was a great realtor for us.
When our Mother passed away in CA, and I lived in Kansas City, the whole process of selling her home seemed at first to be overwhelming until Dan became part of the process. Dan gave practical, realistic solutions to all our questions; explained the CA housing market which at that time was so different than in the Midwest; gave us numerous comps, updating them as new ones occurred; explained to each family member why and what the listing price should be and why; helped us with workers to get the house ready; had many open houses; and most of all, he kept me updated at least several times a week about showings, interest etc. He is an honest, knowledgeable, very nice man and excellent negotiator! If you want the job done correctly, consider Dan Rubenstein as your totally professional realtor!!!!
Solana Beach, CA
Dan helped us through a difficult time in selling our home in Cardiff by the Sea, Ca. He came highly referred by a good friend of ours. From the start, his local knowledge was excellent! His 20+ years in Cardiff by the Sea was important since this coastal community is very unique Real Estate. Prices seemed to fluctuate weekly! After a long and exciting negotiating process Dan was able to creatively negotiate the best terms and price for us. He was very intuitive, sympathetic, and patient with our specific circumstances and needs. He made the transaction smooth and there was no drama or stress. Hands down, Dan is a professional who we would recommend to any buyer or seller in San Diego. Will absolutely be returning to him when the time comes.
Cardiff by the Sea
I’ve known Dan Rubenstein since 2004. My husband and I hired him to sell our first home and purchase our second home, in San Marcos. Because we had such a great experience with Dan, I didn’t hesitate to call him last year when it became necessary for me to sell my family home in Poway. That house is the house I grew up in and selling it was very emotional for me. Dan was with me every step of the way, from offering opinions on what to update and fix, referrals to painters and landscapers to explaining the market and keeping me apprised of what was happening every step of the way. I would not hesitate to use Dan again and more importantly, to refer him to anyone who is in need of great real estate agent.
Dan Rubenstein is a professional with intergrity, honesty, and takes pride in doing his job in an exceptional manner. His priority is his client’s best interest and works with diligence and competence in every situation. He is a professional and person that you can trust and depend on. I have worked with Dan on several real estate transactions including short sales. Due his expertise and knowledge, the difficult transactions were completed seamlessly which is not an easy task in this market. Dan is great to work with and provides personal high quality service.
