    “Living in the state of Washington and needing a San Diego, California broker to handle the sale of my family home. Art Lewis’s name was given me by a local broker. I contacted Art and we started working together. Having never handled the sale of property let alone out of state I relied completely on his suggestions. Property went on the market Sept 1, sold Nov 26, 2019 at all times Art was in contact and kept me informed. I would highly recommend Art as a broker.”
    Betty Mooney

    “We worked with Art Lewis to purchase a condo in downtown San Diego. We are from out of town and Art accommodated our schedules and maximized our time. He is highly respected and well known, and extremely knowledgeable about all the downtown buildings. Art provided great service, advice and referrals and we highly recommend him.”
    Dave & Frances Low
    “Art Lewis worked with us for over a year to find the perfect home in a very competitive market. His patience, knowledge of the market, communication and negotiation skills are superb. We looked at over 70 homes and Art never wavered in making our priorities, his priorities. Art always answered our many questions on a timely manner, and on the rare occasion when he didn’t know the answer, he found it and got back to us quickly. Art exceeded our expectations and was always professional and positive throughout the entire house hunting process, even when we weren’t. Because of his expertise, we were able to buy our dream home at a competitive price. I highly recommend Art.”
    Colleen LeGrand
    “We have purchased and sold many homes and investment properties and Art is the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with. We looked at condominiums in Downtown San Diego for over two years with Art before we purchased. He was always willing to show us properties and better yet gave us information as to the property’s faults. He pointed out when new development was pending that would ruin the views, he would tell us when he thought the price was too high and even when we were finally ready to buy and in escrow the HOA reserves were provided by the seller and Art said we should find something better because the HOA was not funded sufficiently. How many agents would look out for your interest that much? Well with Art’s guidance we found a really fantastic unit with a protected view in a well funded complex for a good price. While in escrow a few snafus came up and Art was right on top of them to make sure the escrow closed on time and negotiated a little extra money for me. Art is USC educated, knows every condo complex Downtown from the inside out and very responsive to our texts. He is very skilled at setting up showings for several units in a short time period saving everyone time. Art is just excellent to work with. If you are looking for a realtor for Downtown believe me ART IS THE MAN for the job! I could see that he was well respected by all the other agents that we came into contact with.”
    Robert Marshall
    “Very knowledgeable of the local area. Patiently showed us various communities in the San Diego area. When the time came to make the offer he guided us through the process with a can-do attitude.”
    Humberto Ornelas
    “Art was a true professional and kept me posted on all aspects of what I considered a complicated sale. He was hands-on and took steps to make sure any property issues were resolved to the Buyer’s satisfaction. I was very satisfied with Art’s services and his knowledge of real estate transactions, from beginning to end. Many thanks Art!”
    Don Crook

    “We were out of state sellers and Art handled everything including getting painters, cleaners, and removing things we didn’t want to take. He made selling our condo a breeze. Highly recommend!”
    Stu & Deb Szycher

    “There are not enough good things I can say about this agent. Selling and buying property can be so stressful and Art has all the bases covered. Very professional, knowledgeable and most importantly, responsive.”
    Linda Weir
    “You will not regret using Art Lewis for your real estate transaction! He was our agent when we purchased our condo in Mission Valley in 2009 and again when we sold it in 2019. He is spot on with his knowledge of the area market as well as all types of real estate transactions. He is always reachable by email and text at any hour of the day and is always so positive and easy to work with. If we decide to buy in the San Diego area again our first call will be to Art!”
    Tracy & Greg Braun
    “A very hard worker. Answered all of my questions. Walked me thru the entire process. Turn around time was almost instantaneous. Art was worth every penny. My brother recommended and now I would too.”
    Jorge Quinonez
    “My wife and I started looking for a condo or home in San Diego last summer, but we needed to sell our condo in San Francisco first. Art gave us our first tour of our desired neighborhoods, picked up quickly on exactly what we were looking for, and was very patient, never pushing us during the five months we took to sell our place. What I liked most was that when we saw things in a place that bothered us or were a potential problem, he was very honest and didn’t try to mask the reality. He was clearly on our side. When we finally made an offer on a great condo, he really helped us figure out where to start with our bid, and it was lower than we expected, but very smart. When we were in escrow, he was a constant intermediary between us and sellers…and we had lots of questions and he made sure we got answers quickly. After the sale, he didn’t leave us. He was there when we moved in. When we were puzzled by some of the high tech features (e.g., the Nest thermostat), he made special trips to help us figure things out. In short, once he had a deal, he was as committed or even more so to our satisfaction. He’s the kind of agent you want to invite over for a celebratory dinner after the sale and know that it would be a fun night. He’s our “go to” in San Diego from now on. Highest recommendation!!”
    Michael Marx
    “Art is a top notch agent! A true professional. One of the things I appreciated most is Art listened to what we were really looking for, only sent us listings that were targeted to us, and set up tours to match. Art is super responsive, and stuck with us until we found just what we were looking for. And to top it off, he is a great guy! If you are looking for an agent in San Diego, contact Art Lewis.”
    Laura Carroll

    “I recently purchased a condo in the Downtown area, Art was extremely helpful and very friendly, it was a pleasure to work with him, making the whole experience much easier and hassle free. I would most definitely recommend him for all your real estate needs.”
    Arturo Milhe

    “Art has exceeded our expectations in every important area. Specifically, he is professional, knowledgeable, and has integrity. His professionalism has shown from day 1. He arrives early, always communicates well, and knows the greater San Diego markets well. He is incredibly knowledgeable about home sales and purchases. My wife and I both have long standing careers in finance so real estate isn’t terribly far from our field of knowledge. However, Art consistently demonstrates he can provide us with a better solution to every issue or goal we have had. He knows the financing components. He understands the proper value of a home. He communicates well with the other parties. Art has steered us clear of much more than what he’s encouraged us to consider. For such a large financial decision that is refreshing. Art has had plenty of opportunities to close a deal with us, earlier than has actually happened. We have noticed a drastically different pressure from previous agents we had met with in years past. Art’s integrity is easy to notice when working with him. This, above everything else, is why we have worked with Art to buy two homes and sell one. And we will work with him as long as he’s in the business because it has been that important of an influence for us.”
    Conrad & Shinobu Hindert

    “Art Lewis was absolutely a top-notch Real Estate Agent. I hired Art on the spot after our initial meeting because I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He was able to sell my condo in under approximately 40 days. I was impressed in his knowledge of correctly filling out all the forms, especially the disclosures. He knew everything about the Palermo complex my Unit was located in. The way he described and photographed my Unit for sale on Zillow and other internet sites was exceptional. No wonder it sold so quick. I would definitely hire Art Lewis again, selling or buying.”
    Kevin Layden

    “From the moment I started the process of buying a home, Art was informative, responsive and professional. He was with me every step of the way and anyone who has bought or sold property knows there are a lot of steps! In hindsight I wish I had him sell My last house. Unfortunately I haven’t had the best experiences with real estate agents and have never really felt that they have been on my side when buying or selling a property. Art has given me a completely different experience so I am truly grateful to him for that. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants quality customer service as well as expert knowledge of market.”
    Virginia Gamble

    “Art did a fantastic job selling our downtown condo this year. I have known him for years and he is a consummate professional, guiding us thru the whole process with common sense and plain hard work. I would trust him with my real estate needs in SD any day, he knows how to get things done and has a longstanding experience in the market. Couldn’t be happier with him!”
    Guillermo Madariaga

    “I listed my condo with Art Lewis after years of looking on their web site to see condo’s and the sales they made. Well, it was one of the best decisions I have made. Art handled everything and more that he didn’t have to. With Art’s knowledge of the area and their website we sold our condo with little or no problems. Caroline also was a great help and took care of all the paperwork needed. I was a pleasure working them all. I highly recommend Art and his group for all their work for making the whole selling process easy.”
    Bob Mitchell

    “Art Lewis helped us sell a downtown San Diego condo while we lived in another state. We could not be happier with our experience. Art always provided sound advice and was able to walk us through the selling process long distance. In addition, he was always there for us, answering phone call, texts or emails, usually within seconds! He’s far and away the best realtor we’ve ever dealt with.”
    Wendy Nelson

    “Art is an outstanding realtor! He recently helped us with a condo purchase and was knowledgeable, very patient, and always available. We were doing a 1031 exchange and the communication all around was excellent. He promptly follows up to every email, phone call, and text message. We have worked with many real estate agents in California and Nevada, we were so please with him, we would definitely work with him in the future.”
    Gary & Carmen Kitagawa

    “I recently completing selling my parent’s home with Art. This is the 2nd home of my parent’s to sell with Art since May of 2017. Both homes were in San Diego County and I live in South Orange County. Art was so helpful in scheduling the required services to sell the homes AS IS. I was saved countless hours by Art for researching and scheduling all the services. You can not put a price on that.
    This last sale was bittersweet, as both my parents are gone. Art was compassionate, thoughtful and provided superior client service. I knew every detail of the process until closing. If I had a question, Art promptly answered texts, emails and telephone calls. While I know I was not his only client, I certainly felt I was.”
    Susie Scuderi

    “We have worked with a dozen agents in four states and Art by far has been the best. Our transaction was conducted at a distance and we never wanted for an update on our status. He went out of his way to be available on our time frame for viewings and proactively anticipated our concerns and questions. Art conducted business in an extremely professional manner while maintaining a low key and approachable, personal style. Most importantly, he listened to our needs and matched those with the right properties.”
    Cathi Griffioen

    “Art, Gregg, Caroline, and the rest of the team were outstanding. This is the second 92101 condo they’ve sold for me in the last two years. Each time I felt I got top dollar and the process was quick and hassle-free.”
    Ed Schwartz

    “Art was great in getting my condo sold. We had a very short escrow and Art made sure everything was completed in time.”
    Rick Windbigler

    “I was the seller of a condo property in Downtown San Diego. My relationship with Art evolved over a period of several years and was sparked by Art’s prospecting call to me inquiring about my interest in selling. When the time was right, I called Art and, as I expected, he delivered. We executed a Listing Agreement and closed on the sale six months later. To say Art is a professional — although true — kind of misses the key point: Art is a partner in the sales process. We worked through a few very routine issues and, at each step in the process, I felt like we were collaborating on the issue and the resolution of it. Although I have experience in real estate transactions, I still appreciated Art’s sense of the best course of action and his perseverance in seeing things through to completion and guiding me through the local transaction customs. Ultimately, we successfully sold the property on the timeline that was important to me. If you’re looking for a high integrity real estate partner, you just found him.”
    Phil Jennings

    “I can’t begin to explain how pleased we were with Art’s terrific work representing us for the recent sale of our condo. Art’s follow through and professionalism were second to none. Selling a home is stressful and Art’s efforts minimized this. responses to the dozens and dozens of questions we had via Email were responded to usually within seconds. I can’t think of anything more he could have done to assist us. I STRONGLY recommend utilizing him for your home sale.”
    Leonard Durow

    “Due to a job relocation I had to do my home search online and remotely from 600 miles away. My meeting with Art was rather random, but I totally lucked out! The best thing about Art was that he was extremely responsive to emails and texts. I am not a big phone user since I may be on calls, meetings, or traveling myself, but Art seemed like he was always connected to his phone which was extremely helpful! He knew the ins and outs of the multiple condo units we were looking at (including the maintenance guy at the complex I eventually ended up buying). Art was patient through multiple offers and never made me feel rushed. His connection to one of the largest brokers in the area allowed me to eventually put an offer in (and close) on a unit that didn’t even come up on MLS so that was a big plus too.”
    Alice Park

    “Our experience working with Art was a true pleasure. He has mastered the art of good client service, always available when we needed him, but never pushy – he is like a waiter who appears to fill your glass whenever it’s empty, but never stops by to ask you questions when your mouth is full. He gave us valuable feedback, made us feel like even our dumb questions were good questions, and is the most responsive person we have ever worked with in either personal or business matters. There are not enough superlatives to sufficiently describe him, but we’ll try: knowledgeable, efficient, forthright, honest, kind, patient, patient, patient, flexible and generous. Thank you Art for everything!”
    Heather England

    “Art was absolutely incredible throughout our home search and the purchase process. As out of state residents, without knowledge of the San Diego market and individual neighborhoods, his expertise was invaluable. He was always professional, amazingly responsive, and truly wanted us to find the perfect family home. I cannot begin to express how lucky we were to find Art, and would recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. He is hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with!”
    Shalon Nienow

    “Art was extremely professional, diligent, knowledgeable, and was a pleasure to work with. He was very accurate on his recommended listing price, which was right at my selling price.”
    Gary Horton

    “Art was by far the best Real Estate Agent we have encountered in our 40+ years of buying and selling properties, homes and condos. We have encountered a variety of dubious experiences from among our other purchases and sales, so as we prepared to list our Marina District, downtown San Diego Condo, we proceeded with much caution and some jaded apprehension. We were introduced to Art Lewis through Neuman & Neuman, and every day, week and month that followed, Art was virtually available 24/7. His guidance, responsiveness and counseling were first class. He is by far the best agent we have encountered. We need to add that we have yet to meet Art in person. While we used to live and reside in the Condo that Art sold for us between 2004 and 2011, we currently reside in Maryland, and despite the 3 hour time difference, our late night emails in the East were responded by first thing very early morning the next day (and at times, the same day late evenings!). We could not have asked for better responsiveness. We do plan to return to San Diego soon and on our agenda is to meet Art finally and thank him in person!”
    Ted & Joan Kanatas

    “I couldn’t be happier with the service we got from Art Lewis. He was very attentive and would respond quickly to all our emails and texts. He was extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and walked us through the entire process of selling our condo. Art is the only realtor who would go the extra mile for us every chance he could. I highly recommend him!”
    Jess Stern

    “Art was an excellent real estate agent! We have used him to purchase our condo, sell the condo and then buy our forever home. He is knowledgeable about the San Diego real estate market and always took to the time to answer any of our inquiries. He was efficient and always prompt to respond to any questions we had. He never wasted our time when we went on viewings which was appreciated. He was also patient as we searched for our perfect home which took close to a year and never pressured us. We would definitely contact Art and his team again if we needed him in the future and highly recommend!! You will not regret.”
    Rana Ram

    “Art is genuinely the best! A true professional, most resourceful and knowledgeable and experienced in San Diego real estate matters with whom we’ve had the pleasure to deal with on a number of occasions. With Art, you can rest assured that you are in great hands! Thanks again!”
    Armando & Claudia Esquer

    “Art was terrific during the period when I purchased my condo. He has an impressive eye for detail and is very patient. I’d give him 6 stars if I could!”
    Gary Leivers

    “Art Lewis and his team were the absolute best I’ve worked with! This was the easiest selling experience I have ever had! They answered all my silly questions professionally and honestly.Thank you !!”
    Dave Zeitz

    “When it came time to sell my condo in Little Italy, I decided to give my listing to Neuman & Neuman because I believed they were the best real estate company in downtown San Diego. They not only met, but exceeded, my expectations! My agent, Art Lewis, supported by a very professional team, did a great job for me from the day he listed my condo through the closing of escrow. Art has years of experience in the downtown real estate market and is very knowledgeable. He was able to determine the true value of my condo and went about an extensive marketing campaign, starting with a professional photography team whose pictures showed off my condo in the best possible light. We got an excellent offer within a matter of days and Art’s skillful negotiations got me full asking price! Throughout the whole process, Art was always available and very responsive to my questions and concerns. Whenever an issue came up, Art calmly and thoughtfully came up with the appropriate solution. Selling a home can be stressful but Art was able to relieve a lot of it with his knowledge, professionalism and hard work. I highly recommend Art Lewis and Neuman & Neuman!”
