Before speaking with Arlo, I received really poor customer service at Carlos Gutierrez - Berkshire Hathaway. I was so upset that I thought all the reviews about realtors in San Diego was phony. Upon talking to Arlo, I realized that he is very knowledgeable and humble! When my mom is ready to sell her house, I will definitely give him a call. He was able to answer my questions and did not make me feel "put down" in any way. In my opinion, this is how to do business especially when it comes to real estate. I'm still so mad at the other company but he helped ease some of that frustration. Thank you.

Arlo explained the benefits of a short sale and also explained the other options. After listening to our options, we decided a short sale would be best.

Arlo and his team helped my family out of a difficult situation last year. We refinanced at the peak of the market, and needless to say, were upside down by about 50%. Arlo explained the benefits of a short sale and also explained the other options. After listening to our options, we decided a short sale would be best. It was a tough decisions, but it was obvious Arlo has helped many people before us because he was very compassionate throughout this tough time, he even sent us a handwritten card in the middle of the listing period. Arlo is also partnered up with two real estate attorneys, which can be a huge asset when it comes to legal questions.

Arlo is the consummate professional and takes his work very seriously. I will gladly recommend him to anyone looking to sell high end real estate in La Jolla or San Diego.

Arlo Nugent and his Team helped sell my home in La Jolla in 2010. He used video marketing, which at the time no other agents seemed to be doing, and actually found a buyer in China! I was hesitant at first, but the buyer checked out and we had a very smooth transaction. Arlo is the consummate professional and takes his work very seriously. I will gladly recommend him to anyone looking to sell high end real estate in La Jolla or San Diego.

Arlo was very patient, explained all of my options, and ultimately negotiated very favorable terms for us! Well done!
