Art Lewis – Career Sales History (Click Here)
“My husband and I were recommended to Art through a good friend of ours who has used him for multiple properties. WOW, can I say that I will never use another agent and now intend to use Art for every future purchase!! My husband and I just closed on our house last week and I can say Art managed to hold our deal together, keep all parties on board and continued to support us even after we closed making sure we got all keys/clickers/documents and even helped us get in contact and register with HOA, electric/water etc! Art was so patient with us during this process, showed us multiple properties spanning all over SD to just help us decide on our area first. Never ever felt pressure to buy! Art always had comps ready and his invaluable advice that honestly made you feel like you had all the information needed to make an educated decision. He would guide us, and made us feel like we could trust him like family. I think when ur making such a large purchase, the realtor makes a world of difference. I can say without hesitation Art is the guy to help find and close your deal with the least amount of stress! I can’t thank Art enough for all he did to help close our home, he truly goes above and beyond and for this he will forever have our business. Thanks Art!!!”

“Art did a good job in selling our downtown condo. He is professional and managed the process well and helped keep our emotions in check while going through the negotiations. Recommend.”
Alan N.orman
“Art watched the market diligently, informed us when the exact property type we were seeking came on the market, provided excellent service throughout our negotiations and close, and was willing to go the extra mile, each step of the way.”

JM M.arino
“Art kept me informed on market ups and downs for over two years before I finally decided to sell. I have friends in RE I could have used, but I thought that showed exceptional patience and perseverance. The entire process was handled professionally and efficiently. Art usually responded to any questions or concerns within minutes. I’d recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their residence.”
Tom L.inthicum
“Art is one of the best realtors we have had the pleasure of working with! He is super responsive via text, email & calls – answers all questions with an enormous amount of knowledge & expertise. He is very friendly and extremely easy to work with. He is fun, well versed in downtown condo’s and made us feel like we were his only clients. We wish we were in the buying/selling business, because we would work with him on every transaction – he is seriously that great! He negotiated well for us, walked us though every step and was on top of every detail. So grateful to know and work with him! We highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs.”
Stephanie V.irding
Art did a fantastic job representing me with the sale of my condo in downtown San Diego. His communication throughout the process with superb and was always available to contact. Made the process seamless. Would definitely recommend him and use him again! He really understands the market and listens to you.
Chelsea R.oss
“I’ve had Art by my side for two real estate transactions in the last two years and there’s no one better! My most recent sale was ripe with emotion and let me tell you…. I put Art on a roller coaster. He handled me and the situation with grace and patience, and worked out an amazing deal that saved me from paying property gains tax! I’m waiting for the interest rates to fall but you bet when I’m ready to buy again I’ll be calling Art. A true professional and down to earth.”
Annie G.riffioen
“We highly recommend Art Lewis! We have worked with Art many times over the years, both looking for a home and selling two properties with him. We highly recommend him for both buying and selling a home. His response time on email or texts cannot be beat, he responds immediately no matter the time. We recently sold two condos with him and both went without an issue. Funny thing is that we were out of town for both and Art and his team were able to execute seamlessly. He was spot on for pricing and we sold both for the asking price. He took the time to make recommendations on what we should do to condos to sell quickly and they did! Kudos to Art and his team!”
Sharon & Roger H.ower
“We used Art and his team when we recently sold a condo in downtown San Diego. He was very professional, easy to reach, answered all our questions immediately, and was a joy to work with. I highly recommend Art and his team if you need to buy or sell real estate in San Diego.”
Ken E.arnest
“Patient, kind, considerate, always supportive of our needs as clients. That is how we would describe Art Lewis (and his team). For a variety of reasons it has been a long haul to get where we are today, but Art was always there, waiting in the wings till we were ready! Never ever pushing us. Guidance, communication and support-Art was there every step of the way. He knows his business and the RIGHT way to do things. Thank you Art!”
Laurie S.ilverman & George H.ikel
“There are a lot of real estate agents in the San Diego area but Art Lewis stands out in my mind as above the rest. Why? He cares. Yeah, yeah, you think a lot of agents care. But not the way Art cares. Art is there right when you want him and need him. If you text him, he’s right back to you within seconds, not hours or days. If you need him to go to your dwelling to help fix something, he’s there. If you need advice on something pertaining to a sale, he’s there for your needs. He has the knowledge to answer any question. Art advised me on staging, re-painting, and to avoid an offer that was going to be more trouble than it was worth. Once a sale was made and was in escrow, we ended up not having to make any repairs. That’s a seller’s dream. Anyway, I recommend Art Lewis and If I were to buy again in San Diego I’d have no hesitation in hiring him again.”
Ben K.alb
“Art is an absolute expert on San Diego housing. He listened to what we wanted, actively searched on our behalf, and found us the perfect place. His advice was spot on and invaluable, especially during the negotiation phase where I think we ended up with a great deal. Art was always available when we called or texted, was patient with us, and was fun to see houses with. His 20 plus years in the business really worked to our advantage. Thanks Art.”
“Art Lewis did an amazing job for us throughout the process of selling our downtown condo. His savvy knowledge of the market allowed us to set a realistic yet assertive price that ultimately resulted in a sale we were thrilled to achieve. He was communicative, professional and engaged. We would gladly work with him again.”
Patty C.hurch
“Once again, Art was professional, friendly and extremely helpful in selling our home.  This was the third time we used his services for both buying and selling homes.  He keeps in contact throughout the buying or selling process, sending emails letting you know if there are any market changes and letting you know if there are any viewings planned.  He responds extremely quickly to emails and texts too.
If we need to buy or sell again, we’ll definitely contact Art because he is very knowledgeable about the property market.  He lets you know the options you have and what he thinks is the best way to go, but leaves the final decision up to you.  We have been very happy working with Art.”
Gail J.illissen
“From start to finish, at every step, Art went the extra mile for us in our home-selling journey. Art is very knowledgeable, diligent, professional, and helpful. We cannot be more satisfied with our experience in working with Art!”
Jose N.ewman
“Art was our representative for the purchase of our home during our lengthy and selective search in San Diego. We contacted Art several years ago while living out of town, he prepared a custom search algorithm, and regularly checked in to “tune” the search criteria. Once we were living locally, he was the most responsive and discerning of the realtors we met as we walked through scores of open houses. He really knew our criteria, provided good leads, and was the one that was always available to get us into homes. As we walked through homes together, he was very helpful with pointing out nuances, flaws, or other items that might be of concern…with a sense humor to boot! Once we made an offer, Art was very thorough with the paperwork and carefully tailored the comments to protect us and clearly state our expectations. As we hit several “bumps” along the way he kept the goal in mind, bringing his relationship with home inspectors and pest control companies to the table. The result was paying LESS than our initial offer and escrow moving forward without a hitch. Thanks Art!”
Derek R.oberts
“I have had the opportunity to work with a number of realtors in California and Washington, D.C. I have never had one better in every category important to buying a new home than Art Lewis. When I say he goes above and beyond anyone else, I mean that literally. He is as good with the minor details as he is with the big picture things like why one location might be better than another. As important is what he won’t do—he won’t tell you something just to sell you a house. Finally, his knowledge of the process from beginning to end and his ability to stay constantly engaged throughout, well, I have never seen a realtor operate at the highest level consistently. In short, you can trust Art Lewis to get the job done and to do it in the best way….”
Fred H.atfield
“Art has been great to work with. He patiently sent us homes for years before we moved to San Diego and often checked in with me to make sure what he was sending was still met our search criteria. Once we moved to San Diego, he continued to send us homes and was more than willing to show them to us on short notice. We never felt pressured or hurried in making decisions. Once we found “the home” Art lead the charge to obtaining the home which had many turns along the way and he navigated them perfectly. We appreciated Art’s expertise in SD real-estate but also his no-pressure friendly style. ”
Lisa R.oberts
“Art did a great job of helping us buy our new condo in downtown San Diego. His expertise in the market was invaluable. He provided us a great selection of condos to choose from. Art was very good at helping us to negotiate our final purchase price. His demeanor is very professional and he is very prompt at returning emails or phone calls. I would highly recommend Art to anyone interested in buying or selling a property in the San Diego market.”
Steve B.arrett
“From start to finish, Art did an exceptional job helping us purchase this condo. As it was the first unit we viewed, we were unsure about how to proceed and at what price to offer. Art helped us come up with a fair offer which was quickly accepted. Throughout the 3 week process, he was attentive to every detail and communicated multiple times daily to be sure we understood what was required and answered questions immediately. He was friendly/approachable; courteous; knowledgeable; and, professional to a fault. I would not hesitate to recommend Art’s services.”
Robin A.lter-Haas
“Art was there when we were ready to sell. He brought experience and knowledge to help us make the right decisions while selling our condo. I appreciated that Art made the selling process easy and would reliable of him for any of our real estate needs in San Diego. Great job Art.”
Robert K.upper
“Art, did a magnificent job in coaching me throughout the home sell process, when I was not feeling well he took care of things for me and always asked me what I wanted to do… he spoon fed me, so to speak through all the documentation for selling and escrow and dealing with the buyers/and their realtor… his expertise advice saved me $15,000.00, plus in negotiations which I would have not known to do, if it were not for him… Art, not only was my realtor, but became an extremely good friend, I believe for life, our communications and my stories brought us together and a bonding was created, he got to know more about me and my needs, and he focused on bring those important thing into fruition for me and my Mom, God Bless, Art, he was my miracle when I needed that special person/friend to represent me in the selling of my precious home in Bay Park/East Mission Bay area of San Diego… if you want a Real Honest and outstanding Real Estate representative, Uncle Art, is your man, I could not have done this without him!!!”
Caesar B.olchini
“Art was one of the best Realtors I have worked with. He was well versed and professional in handling every challenge that comes along in the sale of real estate. He is also beyond reproach in integrity and an excels in customer service and communication skills.”
Ben G.iangiulio
“Agent Art Lewis did an exceptional job identifying properties that met my criteria and listening to my specific needs and wishes for my new resident. He is an exceptional communicator who returns messages almost instantaneously and keeps you informed at every step of the process. Moreover, he’s an excellent negotiator and invested a tremendous amount of time and effort researching properties, coaching and crafting appropriate offers to the seller, sharing his professional advice and coordinating the entire purchase process with my 1031 exchange organization, escrow officers and homeowners ‘association. I recommend Realtor Art Lewis with my upmost confidence to anyone who is looking for a professional agent to sell or purchase any type of real estate property.”
Duarte S.ilva
“Art did a fantastic job from start to finish with the selling of our home. He was highly professional and had great communication throughout the whole process. During a slower season in the real estate market, Art remained persistent and aggressive about getting our house sold in a timely manner for an acceptable price for us. At the end of the transaction we ran into a few potential roadblocks and Art went over the top to make sure we kept our closing date. Highly recommend Art for any real estate transaction in San Diego.”
Kristin H.ill
“Art’s knowledge, skills and overall approach was instrumental to successfully get the exact property we were looking for. In working with Art we didn’t have to worry about the details of the process, he was always few steps ahead, communicating and anticipating questions we might have and on top of laying out very clearly what we had to consider and action throughout the process. He listened closely to what we were looking for, providing the right consultation and negotiation support consistent to what was important to us.” We are busy people, and never felt an email or call from Art was unnecessary, always on point and relevant, he is very professional and knows what and when to communicate. We have bought and sold many houses, and this has been for sure the best realtor service we have received! It was a pleasure working with Art. We will for sure work with him next time as well as recommend him to our family and friends!”
Wanda F.rias
“We worked with Art Lewis at The Neuman Team to purchase our new condo in San Diego and he and the whole team did a fantastic job. Art kept us informed, responded immediately to our questions, and guided us through the negotiations to wind up with a price that was slightly lower than we expected!”
Greg H.osch
“Art is excellent, both with regard to buying and selling. He has exceptional responsiveness, as well as proactiveness and attention to detail. He also has a very good understanding of the market circumstances, and will keep your best interests at the top of the priority list.”
Catherine Berjohn
“Art Lewis has been an amazing help to my family for a few moves over the years. He has done an amazing job getting our places sold while also finding new homes to live in. He goes above and beyond and I highly recommend Art if you are in the market for a new home and looking to sell your current home. Keep up the great work Art.”
Jared Edsall
“My husband and I have worked with many real estate agents in the past. Art Lewis stands above all of them. We were looking for a home of our dreams. It was a lengthy process with a long list of “must have” features. Nothing confounded Art and he was always patient, energetic and knowledgeable every step of the way. Now we are proud owners of a beautiful new home and can’t be happier. He is ALWAYS professional, reliable and available on short notice to answer your calls, texts and emails. He is an expert in his field and a delightful person, with integrity and a great sense of humor. We can highly recommend him for all of your real estate endeavors.”
Elena O’Connor
“We listed our Downtown condo with Art Lewis, throughout the whole process, he demonstrated good sense, reliability, excellent communications, and he shown full commitment to his clients. Art would email us daily informing us about showings or interest in our condo. He has an excellent habit of responding any emails or texts SO QUICKLY it’s truly amazing. Since interest rates were impacting RE sales, we were happy to hear our condo was under contract with a buyer in 6 days on the market. Furthermore, when our buyer came across some repairs issues not captured during the home inspection, Art stepped up to handle that for us as well. Bottom line is…..ART LEWIS is a trustworthy and a FANTASTIC realtor with excellent people skills.”
Agnes Kwan
“Art was the real estate agent representing the sellers when I bought my home and we stayed in touch since then. My regard for his professionalism led me to consider him to represent me when I came to sell. However I wanted to compare options and contacted another agent. The two had quite different approaches and I chose Art a decision for which I am very grateful as the net choice meant I received around $50,000 more from my property than if I had chosen the other agent. Art is immensely professional, incredibly responsive – he answered all my questions virtually instantaneously – and gave me very sound advice. I would have no hesitation in referring any of my friends to him as either a seller’s or buyer’s agent.”
Jonathan Freeman
“Art is a hard worker and is an expert in real estate representation for downtown San Diego. He is a very good communicator and knows the business inside and out. Excellent negotiations skills. I highly recommend him as your agent.”
Luis Pineda
“This is my second time working with Art Lewis on a San Diego real estate transaction and can’t say enough about him/his work. I referred him to another family member who took the lead on this. As anticipated, Art was fantastic from the start. Very knowledgeable (local area/process), thorough, responsive, trustworthy and transparent at every stage. He shared the benefits of selling our beloved Aunt’s property as-is or investing in minor upfront repairs to upgrade the property to sell faster with better price point. Being out of state, Art and his team (Caroline) made the whole process super easy, which we appreciated given busy schedules. He (or Caroline) answered/got answers to all questions any time during the day, vetted contractors & managed repairs fast and thoroughly, handled/facilitated all end-to-end paperwork electronically, and personally followed up by phone, text and email. The property was listed and sold within 2 days at a fantastic price! Still can’t believe how quick the process was. This was also another a sentimental property, and Art was so attentive and compassionate to this. Highly recommend him for any real estate transaction. Thanks again Art!! You truly are the best!”
Karen Laguatan
“We have bought and sold several properties with either mediocre or less than mediocre service over the years. That all changed when we met a real estate agent in San Diego, Art Lewis of Berkshire Hathaway. We were looking in the city for the right property that met our needs and he knew every building pros and cons and quickly found the right building for us. 11 years later, we were debating on selling but patiently waited for Art’s advice on a calculated and well thought-out strategy. He called, executed and a week later negotiated the highest price per square foot sale in our building ever! Art is the best realtor we have ever worked with. His hard work and diligence combined with market knowledge makes him among the best in the industry. Art has an amazing eye for detail is thorough and responsive as well. THANK YOU SO MUCH ART LEWIS. Now we have decided to buy in North San Diego County and surprise surprise, who do you think is well-educated on properties and demographics of the area??? Of course Art Lewis! Excited and eager to work with Art again to find our dream home.”
Kim & Rick Rejnert
“I have used Art Lewis in my past real Estate purchases here in downtown San Diego his experience in the area has only gotten sharper along with his wit and willingness to do whatever it takes to make his client happy. Plus, bringing in the best clients and offers. Art works with an amazing team here in downtown San Diego so he has excellent support. Art will go past the realtor’s “job description” to make everyone happy!”
Peggy Bailey
“Art helped my wife and me to buy a house. It was the best experience I have ever had with a real estate agent and will return to Art every time I buy or sell a house from now on! 100% recommended. He was extremely organized, thoughtful, and receptive to our input.”
Henk Both
“We recently listed and sold a home in San Diego with Art Lewis. Art was on top of all parts of this sale, from communicating our comparables on a weekly basis to helping manage the painters, cleaners, etc. to prep the home for sale. We are truly impressed by Art’s demeanor and professionalism. He is smart, knows the market and is able to navigate the multiple layers of a real estate transaction with ease. There is no hesitation in our referral of Art Lewis. He will be the agent we use for any future transactions in the area.”
Christine Gullixson
“Art Lewis was the most professional, responsive realtor we’ve ever worked with. He was very knowledgeable about the market, handled the marketing beautifully and helped us obtain a great price in a short time.”
JoAnn Nunnink
“Since 2011, Art Lewis has been the Real Estate Professional who has helped me navigate through 2 downsizes and most recently, an unexpected change of circumstances. He’s never more than mere moments away to assist me with my many questions and concerns. Art is the Real Estate Professionals’ Professional.”
David Madia
“I have used Art twice and he is excellent on execution and getting things done. Both times property was sold/bought without any delays. Had some issues with vagrants and he was on site ASAP and got it handled as I was on the other side of the country.”
Wade Worthington
“I had the pleasure of working with Art Lewis in my recent purchase of a downtown San Diego condo. I’m so glad I worked with him especially in this current market. He knows the downtown market extremely well and was very honest about the plusses and minuses of every building and would say in advance here is what you’ll like and dislike about every unit I visited. I didn’t think I’d say this but he was actually very fun to work with. He quickly learned what was important to me and when he sent me a new listing he would tailor his input to what was important to me. He was very open and honest in his description of each home I visited. I would definitely work with him again; however, since my new home is so perfect for me, I’m not sure I’ll get the opportunity. Because he does a great job of understanding what is important to his client, I think he would be a great fit for just about anyone.”
John Dyer
“In today’s crazy market, you need a realtor who is a straight shooter, has good relationships with other realtors in the area, and knows how to get a deal done (while looking out for our best interest / budget all along). Art checks all of those boxes and more. We started working with Art in 2019 in pursuit of purchasing our forever home. Of course, with COVID and extenuating circumstances in the market, our timeline extended and we toured many homes (20+) and made offers (and failed) on about 10. Art was incredibly patient and he was just as committed as we were to finding the right home for us. Art also went above and beyond to be responsive – I’m not sure any of our emails went unanswered for longer than 15 minutes. I’ve worked with other realtors who pressured me into moving forward with a bid/purchase, and that was categorically not the case with Art. He won our trust and our business through staying steady, patient, and helping point us in the right direction. He also gets an A+ on execution–once we did finally get a winning bid, he was there every step of the way to help us negotiate the final details and get us into a home that we really love so far! (now ~1 month in). Do yourself a favor and hire Art.”
Laura Zwilling
“We had an incredibly seamless and transparent experience working with Art on the purchase of a condo at CityFront Terrace in San Diego. We felt very well represented by Art throughout the entire transaction. His recommendation on what to bid for the property was brilliant. I would also note that we found him very easy to work with and he is sincere in his drive to produce value in the process of purchasing a home. He has great communication skills and responded to all of our inquiries in a super timely manner. Thanks Art!”
Marty Massiello
“Best SD Realtor hands down! Art looks out for his sellers best interest. He has a skilled strategic approach and clearly demonstrates experience. His approach in todays competitive market is by far above and beyond what most agents are able to do. It takes a lot to impress me, from start to finish I felt secure in trusting him with my extremely complex transaction. He made suggestions I ultimately went with and so pleased I did, he was right. Multiple offers and closed by way of Art’s diligence, care and expertise. Thank you Art!”
Kimberly Morales
“I had a great experience selling my condo in San Diego with Art. My condo was an investment property and I was afraid that I would have to travel to San Diego to deal with all of the issues that come with selling a property. However, Art made it easy and he took care of all of the issues that I would have had to deal with…not one trip to San Diego to deal with this sale. He is very conscientious and a great communicator.. His expertise made this sale go fast. I highly recommend Art to anyone looking for a Realtor.”
Tom Lee
“February 2022 Marina District Art with over 20 years in the San Diego real estate market has the experience with the knowledge I was looking for. He is professional and was very responsive every step through the entire buying process. He is tireless is a challenging market… and knew each of the properties history / factors relative to their values. He is also well known in the industry… with skills that were very respected by all the selling agents. He helped me negotiate my purchase on a perfect place… which was beyond all expectations in such a competitive market. I highly recommend him as an top and trusted agent…. as well as a new friend.”
Robert Clemmer
“It was smooth sailing all the way. Art knows the San Diego downtown real estate market very well and is helpful setting up the place for showing. Closing happened in less then 3 weeks.”
Inge Mair
“The best. He went to bat for me 100% of the time. Professional but down to earth, enjoyable to work with. Super prompt replies, almost scary. Answered and helped with all my questions no matter how rookie or stupid they were. Got me results when builders were moving slow or stringing me along! Highest recommendation.”
Annie Griffioen
“Art is an absolute real estate professional and knows the San Diego downtown condo market better than anyone. He was extremely easy to work with and his team provided an A+ work product from the listing to the photos and video. I feel like I sold my condo for a lot more than I would have with any other agent. I really cannot say enough good things about Art and I highly recommend him.”
Patrick Couture
“We are lucky to call Art Lewis not only our favorite realtor, but also a great friend. Maintaining a close friendship of many years while tirelessly looking for homes for these friends is a delicate balance to strike, one which Art did quite masterfully. Not only is Art Lewis an all around great guy, he is also incredibly knowledgeable about local real estate. A life long San Diegan, he knows all areas well and truly wanted to find a home to best suit us. He never pushed us towards something just to make a sale, and I felt he was always honest about whether a home was priced accurately. After years working with us a buyers agent, he ended up being our seller’s agent as we ultimately moved out of state. We maintained our relationship after the move and Art has even sent us some lost mail and packages proving his service knows no bounds. Use Art, you won’t regret it!”
Susie Thorpe
“Art Lewis was absolutely the best realtor in the world throughout the entire process of selling my condo in record time at top dollar.  I greatly appreciated his expertise in guiding my decisions from start to finish.  He always answered my calls on the first ring – even on Sundays!  His upfront attitude gave me confidence in problem-solving at the mini stages of the sale.  He is a joy to work with!! I was extremely elated to receive multiple offers from buyers who showed up on the first day of appointments.  He patiently answered my many questions throughout the process.  He was truly an outstanding professional, and a great friend, during the entire time of the sale.  I will miss Art.  God bless you.”
Judy Holmes
“Art made our selling experience very positive. He has a pleasant personality, is very professional, and had an excellent knowledge of real estate in the San Diego area. He walked us through every step of our sell from listing to closing. He responded rapidly to any questions we had and communicated with us on a regular basis. I would highly recommend him as an agent.”
Meredith and Larry Orton
“It was a pleasure having Art as our realtor He did an excellent job helping us get into our new home. He responds immediately to phone calls, texts and e mails as well as to other brokers He makes himself available when needed and is knowledgeable about the local area and has a very pleasant disposition.”
Eileen Touger
“I listed and sold my Downtown condo with Art Lewis. He made the experience easy and really appreciate the professionalism and experience. Art is very responsive and communicates frequently through the process providing the most current information. I took his recommendation on pricing amend he was spot on. We had multiple offers and he helped sort through them with pros and cons. Definitely recommend him – it was a seamless process and the credit goes to Art!”
Suket Dayal
“Art Lewis recently sold our San Diego downtown condo. He handled the entire process very professionally and was exceptional in keeping us fully informed of every step. Also, Art very effectively represented our interests during the negotiations.  He is extremely knowledgeable of the San Diego residential market.”
Lew Blackwell
“My husband and I have bought and sold several houses using Art. He’s very knowledgeable. He really knows real estate law, land and anything related to buying and selling. He answered all of our questions and concerns usually immediately but definitely within a few hours. I can’t say enough good things about him. He’s not your average agent. He’s the best of the best!”
Barb Ivory
“Art Lewis masterfully guided us through our sale in 2020 and our purchase in 2021. Art is thorough, proactive and understanding of the needs of his clients. His wealth of experience and knowledge of the market combined with warmth and friendliness put him above the fold. We are beyond grateful Art’s support. Money well spent!”
Joe Ciavarella
“Art Lewis is our go to guy for buying and selling property in San Diego. Last year he sold our downtown condo and when we were ready to buy again, he helped us purchase our new Hillcrest condo. Art is easygoing, calm, realistic, and so knowledgeable about all aspects of the buying and selling process. He gave us the space we needed when we were unsure of properties and have us very transparent feedback on properties we considered that had red flags. We appreciate you so much Art for helping us find our new condo and for keeping us grounded through the process. If I could give more stars I would! Art Lewis is the best!”
Ryan Feldman
“Trust, honesty, and professionalism are exactly what we need to describe Art Lewis.  He went above and beyond our expectations to help us buy and sell our home.  In 2015, he helped us negotiate for the best price possible when we were buying our dream home in Carmel Valley.  We couldn’t believe we got the house at the price we wanted.  We never thought it was possible to get a price reduction in San Diego.  When we were ready to sell our home, he helped us prepare our home to sell with ease and get more bang for your buck with step by step guidance to the final stage.  We were selling our house and moving out of state and he managed the entire process from listing, showing, inspections, appraisals, closing with escrow.  He even drove by to check on our pool. We were very happy with the selling price.  Art priced our house really well so we could sell at a better price.   We sold our house at a higher price more that we initially wanted.  We are extremely fortunate to know him and have highly recommended him to all our friends.  Honesty and integrity is what Art Lewis stands for in the real estate industry in Southern California.  He is an outstanding real estate guru and a terrific person. He is extremely knowledgeable about the San Diego real estate market. He is very responsive to any questions and always made himself available.”
Dat Tran & Van Dao
“I would like to express my sincerest thanks to Art Lewis for all his help with the recent sale of a downtown SD condo. When I first considered a sale in 2016 and started researching the local market I found myself repeatedly returning to some helpful market assessment tools on the Neuman & Neuman webpage. Art at the time proactively reached out, offered additional insights, and continued providing very realistic/no-nonsense updates over the following five years (!). I truly appreciate Art sharing the good news with the bad, pointing out opportunities, but also advising against attempting a sale when the timing wasn’t right. When the stars finally appeared to align Art did a masterful job preparing the unit for sale (recommending and also handling selected upgrades and fixes) and navigating offers and the escrow process. Art was extremely responsive, courteous and just great to work with at all times. I’ll be sure to reach out to Art again for any real estate needs in SD!”

“Art helped us close the sale of a condo in Banker’s Hill, San Diego. He was fantastic from start to finish. He knows the market and the closing process and his response time was amazing. He made sure the process kept moving and the sale closed on time. I would highly recommend him.”
Nancy Samiljan
“Art is very knowledgeable about the downtown SD market, knows a lot of the different buildings and the dynamics driving prices and trends in the area. He is very responsive, always gets back to you immediately. He gave good advice on what to repair in the unit prior to selling and helped me get a good price with a quick close.”
Nick Erickson
“Art Lewis was the best agent I could wish for. As a first-time home buyer, he patiently, promptly and diligently responded to my many questions. Art offered specifically the type of units I would be interested. I fell assured I was in good hands as he had my best interests in mind. He was not rushing me to pick something in today’s high-demand competitive market. Mr. Lewis went over and above in customer service, with efficiently, kindly and professionally coaching me to own my first house. I moved 3 days ago and am so happy with my new downtown condo. I am so grateful to you Art! I will without a doubt continue to work with Art for the years to come; and recommend him to everyone who wants the best in their budget without having their time wasted.”
Hani Baker
“Working with Art was a wonderful and stress free experience for us. He was very prompt to returning all calls e-mails. I highly recommend Art as once you hire him there is nothing to worry about as you are in great hands with him and his team of support! He knows the market and will be a trusted advisor for you.”
Dawn Lombardi
“Art Lewis is the absolute best!  He was patient, responsive, persistent, and guided us through every step of the process. Especially as first-time homebuyers, his guidance and expertise were crucial in securing us our first home. We had about a million questions and he was always patient and thorough in all of his interactions, emails, phone calls, etc. He also had unrivaled knowledge of the area we wanted to buy, and he worked tirelessly to try to find us our first home. It is such a crazy market right now and we feel so grateful that he made the process as painless as it could have been! He also took the time to explain everything to us, which I really appreciated as I wanted to learn more about every step of the process.
From searching for homes to putting in the offer to closing, the process was as stress-free and easy as it could have been because we knew we had someone who had our backs. He also had some great suggestions during the closing process that ended up saving us big on closing costs. He is absolutely trustworthy and always is on your team!  We honestly can’t say enough to highly recommend Art – we feel so lucky to have found him, and anyone who works with him is in great hands! He is a consummate professional and has a great sense of humor to boot. We couldn’t have bought a house without him. Thanks again for all your hard work Art!!
Ruth Goodson
“From the first call to closing the deal, Art provided market insights, sound advice, and most importantly emotional support and incredible patience to help us get the best deal possible. I’d consider Art to be the perfect agent in all aspects. He is honest and to the point, he took time to understand what we were looking for, and he was sensitive to our needs and the most important aspect of Art is that he never once pushed us to move to other opportunities for sake of closing a deal. When we narrowed down the search and found our dream home, Art went above and beyond to negotiate the best deal possible. Art dedicated himself to ensure a seamless, stress free process through out the negotiation process. He provided great advise on recommendation on timing of counter offers which later on proved to be wise and a pivotal to closing the deal. Art was extremely responsive and always reachable within minutes of a text or a phone call. After the sale closed, we were impressed by Art’s effort to check in and help us transition into our property. Art came by one morning to help me remove old pendant lighting from the ceiling. I don’t know of too many realtors who would take time from their busy schedule to help a buyer with remodeling work. This speaks volumes on Art’s character and who he is. If we are ever to sell our house Art will be the agent. I highly recommend Art to anyone looking for a hard working, knowledgably, honest, to the point and communicative realtor.”
Henry Derovanessian
“We first met Art in 2008 when we decided it was time to move out of our 1 bedroom condo as we had an almost 3 year old and a newborn. I don’t even remember how many houses we looked at with Art, but even though we asked him to set up viewings for many, he was always helpful and friendly. We kept that condo as a rental until this year, and when we decided to sell it, we called Art. He was the same as we remembered him from 13 years ago. He discussed selling prices and options with us, and we went ahead. A week after listing, we already had an offer, and he was spot on with his suggested selling price, even though it was higher than the recent sales in the area. It was an easy, hassle free experience with Art leading the way. It couldn’t have gone any better! Thanks Art!”
Gail Jillissen
“One of the reasons we went with Art was because of his intimate knowledge of our building and the downtown area. He had solid knowledge of local comps and how our unit/building would compete with other units in the surrounding area. He provided solid advice throughout the entire process and in the end, got the job done!”
Jack Turek
“I highly recommend Art for your real estate needs! He’s super knowledgeable and got our home sold fast for the right price. He is professional, courteous, and and expert and fast communicator.”
Allison Quirk
“Art skillfully guided us through our second home purchase. We also worked with Art for our first purchase, so we’re repeat clients. Art knows the local market, has a solid network of contacts to help support the process, and is an expert at managing expectations & emotions. Purchasing a home can be a stressful process (especially in this Covid market), but we always felt that Art provided valuable advice and insights along the way. I would recommend Art to anyone looking for a thoughtful and resourceful real estate professional. Art is much more than an agent – he’s a trusted fiduciary with an abundance of relevant experience.”
Jeremy Kovacevich
“We just sold our home in Mission Valley and had the pleasure to work with Art Lewis and his team.  I had always heard great things about Art and had recommended him to some friends several years ago.  They raved about how great he was to work with on their San Diego home purchase. So, when it came time to sell our home in the midst of the pandemic and dealing with my mom’s health issues out of state, I knew we needed someone we could trust implicitly and would look out for our best interest.
Art made what could have been an extremely stressful and difficult process as seamless and easy as could be. We were out of state while selling and Art made sure everything was moving ahead and smooth in our absence. He really listened, cared passionately about his job and his calming manner worked wonders for us.  Not only was his advice on our process and in staging our home spot on, his assistance in pricing was invaluable. We were so nervous about going too high or too low. Art explained the pros and cons and took time to understand our unique situation and recommended a price. We immediately were impressed with all the showings we had scheduled.  We had multiple offers within 4 days and closed less than 30 days from putting our home on the market and at full asking price!
He was in constant communication with us, answered all of our first time seller questions and handled our transaction like the experienced pro that he is.  I can’t speak highly enough of Art. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are very much appreciated. We simply could not have done it without him.”
Leah Gowin
“Art is an incredible agent who always had my best interests in mind. He was responsive, conscientious, and experienced. Could not have trusted him more!”
Michael Kaiser
“I’ve used Art Lewis before when purchasing my condo and now 3 years later as a seller. I had MANY realtors after me to sell my condo, but Art is hands down the most knowledgeable person about downtown real estate. We discussed pricing goals and he was the only one who agreed that we could reach my target. Other realtors didn’t seem to want to work too hard and tried to talk me down. Art got full price for the condo in the first week. Even after the offer Art worked behind the scenes for inspections and appraisals and kept everything moving. The team from Neuman & Neuman made this process very simple and painless. Would highly recommend using Art.”
Eric Smoker
“Art is a really fantastic realtor. I’ve bought and sold a number of properties over the past 40 plus years and I can honestly say that Art is the best and most professional realtor I have had the pleasure of working with. He is personable, knowledgeable and works hard for his clients,”
Bob Hendricks
“Art is exceptional. A true professional. He went above and beyond our expectations in every way imaginable. He had the patience to listen and genuinely cared about what was important to us. Without us asking he took the time to do market research on the particular features we were seeking and gave us the facts we needed in order to make confident decisions. Whether it’s your first or fifth home purchase, each deal can present its own hurdles which can be stressful. Not with Art – he was there each step of the way, even nights and weekends, to seamlessly get us over any hurdles. When we didn’t know where to turn for an inspector or financing, we turned to Art, who provided us with excellent recommendations. Art negotiated a price even lower than we had anticipated possible. When we discovered necessary repairs during our inspection, he went the extra mile to ensure things were resolved to our satisfaction. To top it off, he’s friendly, fun, and easy to communicate with. Needless to say, we would give Art 10+ stars if we could. We sincerely appreciate you Art. Thank You!”
Crista S.osenko
“When I spoke to a friend about selling my longtime San Diego condo and purchasing one downtown, he said there are many pretty buildings, but you need a realtor who knows all of them and how well they are managed.  Art Lewis is that person.  He listened to our lifestyle needs and desires, steered us away from certain locations and introduced us to several buildings with units we loved.  He made a complicated process into a simple, quick, easy & fun solution.  He is always a gentle person with a sense of humor and savvy technical skills to get us through all of the documents – including the Covid signing requirements.  Within a month, we purchased a new home and sold our former one.  I have had a lot of experience with real estate professionals over the years, and Art surpassed my expectations.  I would not hesitate to recommend him or his team to anyone who is interested in San Diego real estate.”
Ann Morrison
“We connected with Art Lewis several years ago when we were wondering about selling our downtown condo. At the time we were not ready but Art kept in touch with us and kept us appraised of the market value and trends. When we were ready this year Art was our first choice and was respectful, patient, down to earth, and professional. Our experience with Art was totally top-notch and we would highly recommend him. If we could give more than 5 stars we would. Thanks Art for a great selling experience and we will be in touch when we are settled and ready to start the next chapter!”
Joe Ciavarella & Ryan Feldman
“I’ve had dealings with many realtors over the years and I must say Art is absolutely the BEST realtor I’ve had the pleasure to work with. He’s a talented professional, very knowledgeable and extremely efficient. Real estate can be a stressful ordeal but with Art, I felt assured due to his experience, strong negotiation skills and kind professional demeanor. I was confident Art had my best interest every step of the way.”
Brenda Gates
“Art is a phenomenal realtor: knowledgeable, responsive, proactive, and thorough. Helped successfully navigate a competitive bidding process, expedited close, and lots of loose ends along the way. Would definitely recommend.”
Catherine Berjohn
“Don’t let Art’s easygoing demeanor fool you. He is diligent, has impeccable follow-through, and you will benefit from his extensive experience.  I don’t know what procedures he has in place behind the scenes but from a client’s perspective, things ran consistently smoothly. Previous to Art, I had my condo on the market for five months and an offer had fallen through during escrow. Art managed my expectations like a true professional, was honest, direct, and advocated for me with the diligence of a trial attorney. With Art, I had an offer in 33 days, for a higher amount and great terms. And he did it while navigating the difficult landscape of the Pandemic.”
Liliana Rurup
“Art helped me and my wife sell our condo in San Diego. He was very knowledgeable about the process and pricing, and responsive to all of our questions. He really helped the whole process go smoothly – I would definitely recommend.”
Patrick O’Day
My husband and I were first time home buyers, which is intimidating enough, and we were moving across the state from Northern California in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic. This made the process that much more challenging. Art was amazing, walking us through every step of the way to land  our dream house, in our dream neighborhood, at a price point we could handle. Before working with Art, we interviewed several realtors by phone. We were immediately struck by Art’s experience, professionalism and knowledge of the neighborhoods we were interested in. He’s also a friendly, patient and kind person. Art is a listener. He *really* listens to what you say you want and he respects that as well as the limits of what you say you can afford. (We’ve had experiences with other realtors who were always trying to push us into neighborhoods we didn’t like or discouraged us in thinking we could afford a home in the neighborhood we liked.) In two weekend trips we planned to San Diego, Art made time for us, joining us on open houses and arranging last minute private viewings. The first (very competitive) house we decided to bid on Art got us into contract! While in contract, he quickly arranged our inspections with trusted vendors, and with the seller’s realtor, he negotiated a price reduction and a credit for repairs. Since we couldn’t be there for all those appointments, he stood in for us, and didn’t hesitate when we asked for measurements of rooms, as we prepared for our move. Art is highly-effective, goes above and beyond, and we 100 percent recommend him. Thank you so much Art! We are so lucky to have worked with you.”
Kelly Whalen
“I wish I could give Art more than five stars! He made the entire sales process easy and painless. He explained all of the steps along the way, and was always quick to respond to any questions we had. He always had our best interests first and foremost. He is super knowledgeable and goes above and beyond in all capacities. I highly recommend working with Art!!”
Titer Bickford
“Art and the entire team were responsive and terrific to deal with”
David Saacks
Art is a true professional and exceeded my expectations as my Realtor. He was always available to answer all my questions and very attentive. We found a new construction home and they required our home to be on the market within 7 days and in escrow no later than 21 days. Art had our home on the market  within 3 days and in escrow 2 days later! He was very thorough and made sure we were taken care of thru the whole process. He is extremely personable and my wife and I would highly recommend him to anyone!”
Dean Deanes
“Art Lewis was our realtor, he was, is an incredibly competent adept agent. He had a very thorough communication throughout our entire home search and closing process. Art arranged all inspections, and referred us to make helpful contractors, plumbers, handyman, roofers, we would hands down recommends art to friends and will definitely work with him when we sell our house.”
Ryan Anson
“Art has an exceptional understanding of the downtown market and implemented a sales strategy that was spot on. His responsiveness and attention to details were top notch. I would highly recommend Art and his team.”
Keith & Kathy Southwood
“Art is very knowledgeable about the downtown San Diego market and was very responsive when we had questions or needed info. Would highly recommend him and Neuman & Neuman.”
Ruthanne & Bill Fisher
“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
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!”

“I met Art through my sister he helped her by a house in 2012 Escala Community, told him what I was looking for when I planned to move to San Diego and he started sending a daily email.   Once I moved to San Diego and got settle I gave him a call and he was able to find me a property within the Escala Community. His very patient, very knowledgeable of the San Diego market, helpful, outgoing, friendly, never pushy and would always tell me to wait and not to rush anything and the right house would come. I highly recommend.”
Haben Melles

“My wife and I have worked with various agents over the years…most of whom were in the area where we used to live.  When we decided to start looking for a new home in San Diego we enlisted the help of Art Lewis.  Art is a professional through and through.  It became apparent very quickly that Art has been representing buyers and sellers in the San Diego area for going on almost two DECADES.  His local knowledge, process expertise and responsiveness are beyond compare and nothing short of remarkable.  He made buying a home from over hundred miles away an easy and manageable process.”
Nicholas Radtke

Art Lewis was the listing agent on a recent sale of our San Diego home. The sale and proceeds of this house were an important component of our retirement plan so I had high hopes and very high expectations for the guidance I would get in preparing this home for sale in the “very active” San Diego  real estate market. My wife and I began with a three page listing of work we thought might be needed and how we would approach it. Many months before the house went up for sale, Art responded to our invitation to visit and advise us about each and every one of our “to do” items. The first way he helped was to listen carefully and respectfully to all we had to say about each item. When we were done reviewing our items he addressed each and every item with an informed yes or no, and then made additional suggestions we had not considered. It was immediately evident to us that Art was intuitively clear about how to approach each item. His confidence became our confidence, and we spent the next four months resolving the “to do list” and then reviewing the work with Art by phone, email, and when needed, in person. Every phone call was returned immediately, and every email was answered even more quickly than immediately. Finally, we were ready. We put our faith in Art and it paid off wonderfully and quickly. The home photographed beautifully and within six hours of listing it on the MLS we had an offer, and ultimately a buyer, for more than the asking price. It is my pleasure to tell anyone who will listen what a great realtor and a great person we had in Art Lewis.”
Allison Morgan

“Art is very kind, patient, and knowledgeable. He understands the San Diego market and, if I ever needed to buy or sell a home again, I would go to him first. I give him my highest recommendation.”
Clint Hall

“Art Lewis and my family have known and been working together since 2008.  There is not one thing negative I have to report.  He is fantastic, on your side and will go the extra mile.  He is very familiar with all the neighborhoods in SD and can make really good recommendations to you.  Highly recommend”
Arshiya & Goli Sharafi

“I worked with Art for several months to locate and purchase the right property for me. His knowledge of the San Diego market proved very valuable. Art is a true professional who I will use on my next purchase.”
Jerry Yacobellis

“Art was a wonderful guide, introducing us to San Diego (we moved from LA) and patiently showing us many properties. He was responsive, extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Best of all, he was cheerful and professional no matter how much we changed our minds! Art found us our perfect home.”
Audrey Lang & Mari-Jo Pesch

“Art is a fantastic realtor. He is very knowledgeable about the San Diego neighborhoods and has an eye for value. I have both bought and sold real estate with Art and I wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
Jeff Boyd

“This was a stressful process for me due to the sudden timeline and Art and his team were great. Always provided realistic and honest assessments of the timing, market, property condition and what kind of changes need to be made to get the most out of my property. They were always there and made  this sale very simple and helped to eliminate all the stress of selling. Could not have asked for more support and knowledge and this my 8th buy and sell transaction so I’ve a huge range and Art and his team are tops.”
Christopher Mills

“Art is a master of his craft. I had never sold a home before I asked Art to be my agent. I had kept my Cardiff house as a rental when I decided to move to a condo downtown to be near work. Now I was ready for another transition. Once we got started I knew I had made an excellent choice. In our initial meeting Art laid out what the process would look from preparing the unit for showing, photographs, and marketing to extensive written materials on costs associated with a sale. The estimates he provided were spot on. He was knowledgeable about the kinds of offers I would get, strategies for counter offers, and acceptance of the final offer.   He responded to my e-mails or texts quickly, usually within minutes. Answers to my questions were explained clearly and he has a way of communicating that helped me learn about the process instead of merely providing a simplified answer. During the few months we spent on selling my condo Art was also locating and showing me houses that were for sale with features and pricing that met my needs. He has an eagle’s eye for details that might require a closer look. He is not about just finding a property that meets my needs on the outside but from the foundation or floorboards to the roof and environs.  Art is sincere, straightforward, and knowledgeable with a great sense of humor and calm demeanor.  He is just the agent I need to continue my search for the perfect home for this stage of my life.”
Berta Harris-Sutro

“Working with Art was great! We were from Los Angeles looking to buy property in San Diego. Art was very patient with us, showed us around, suggested neighborhoods that he thought we would be comfortable with and above all was never pushy. He is knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods and provided good guidance. When we settled on what we were looking he sent targeted listings and never did he once bug us about making a decision.  Truely a gentleman!! Enjoyed working with other him. Highly recommend his services!”
Meena & Chetan Katakia

“I met Art by telephone discussing a property he was selling. I told him I would be putting my condo up for sale in approximately one year. He patiently kept in touch every 3 months or so to see what my status for selling was at that time. He has a very calm manner to him and I found the he was genuinely interested in helping me sell my condo. He was always available and most responsive to returning my phone calls and emails. There was never any pressure to make hasty decisions on my part. He walked me through the whole process and made sure I felt comfortable each step of the way. I particularly liked that he provided the convenience of signing forms online which made the process easier and more enjoyable.  It was good to have a person who had the experience and expertise with selling homes along with being extremely supportive, courteous, and not full of himself. He allowed me to express my opinions and excepted a lot of my verbal input as worthy. I truly enjoyed working with him and appreciated his Great sense of humor also!! Even though he had other clients, I always felt that I was his most important focus at the time. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling their home.  He was Terrific, Just Terrific!!”
Alita Colling

“Art is a real gentleman and an experienced realtors. He is always responsive to your questions and concerns. We are pleased to have worked with Art on two purchases and will continue to do again.”
Shahram & Pari Sharafi

“Art is knowledgeable, helpful, outgoing, and friendly but he also demonstrates the highest level of understanding of real estate and is an excellent communicator during all parts of the process. He is a true gentleman. Art and his team quickly responded to all our emails and texts and patiently answered any and all questions that we had. We would highly recommend Art Lewis to anyone looking to work with a true professional.”
Bill & Roxie Forrester

“Art Lewis & all the team members did an absoultely AMAZING job.  Thanks so much!  Worth every dollar I paid.  Very happy!”
Jan Hickerson

“Art has a thorough knowledge of  the downtown San Diego market, his response to our calls and texts was always very prompt and he never left us hanging.  He was always able to answer our questions about the market we were selling in without hesitation.  I highly recommend Art Lewis for your real estate needs.  Oh, did I mention he got us a very good price for our property?”
Victor Fontes

“Living over 1600 miles away from San Diego and trying to sell a vacation home could have been a nightmare, but having Art right there every step of the way made it more like a dream. He was always on top of everything going on. He kept us in the loop at every turn and was quickly available if we had questions or concerns. We would highly recommend him. Art’s expertise in real estate and knowledge of the San Diego area was apparent from our first encounter with him throughout our final transaction. We appreciate everything he did for us. We’re SOLD and HAPPY. Great job Art!”
Tammy Gonzalez

Art really knows downtown. Very responsive, happy to show me properties (sometimes 3x each). He was patient while I waited for the right property and at my price. I never felt pressured by Art. When it came down to the offers and counters Art was a very good negotiator on my behalf. Got more  than I hoped for.”
Eric Smoker

“Art is the ultimate professional! His expertise, knowledge and positive responsiveness made our sale of our home an excellent process. A quality efficient agent.”
Teri Frazier

“Selling a family rental house is stressful. Selling a family rental house long distance adds another stress  level. Selling a family rental  house long distance for your mother ‘s care is a tremendous responsibility and stressful.  As the house was to be sold “AS IS”, home and terminate inspections were completed prior to listing.  This preparation allowed Art to know the condition of the house and price correctly.
In preparing the house for sale, Art saved many trips for the necessary cleanup required. He provided estimates for trash hauling and a deep cleaning. He scheduled the appointments once vendors were selected.  Art made this selling process simple and fast. He is incredibly knowledgeable, easy to talk to and exceptionally professional. He is quick to respond to emails and text messages. Awesome experience from beginning to end.”
Susie Scuderi

“My sister and I were charged with selling a family home in San Diego. We live outside the area and Art was recommended to us and we were lucky he was! Having Art as our agent saved us many drives to the area. Whatever was needed to spruce up the house was suggested and taken care of by Art. His recommendations helped to sell the house and interest before the house was on the market. By the first day on the market, we had numerous offers and eventually sold it for over asking. I highly recommend Art for either selling or buying a home.”
Rachel Swarts

“Wow – what a experience. From the first phone call Art and his team were honest and communicated to me everything that I needed to know. I highly value their open and honest communication and professionalism throughout the process. Selling a home can be stressful this was the exact opposite. From day one I felt I was their most important client. I would recommend Art and his team of professionals to anyone in the area.”
Brad Avots

“We have used Art Lewis for the purchase of several condos in downtown San Diego. He is extremely conscientious, professional and very easy and nice to work with. He is honest and friendly and we would use him again in a heartbeat. So nice to have someone to trust and that you enjoy working with. We highly recommend him.”
Toni Casamento

“Art is the consummate real estate professional in downtown San Diego. In July, 2005, he sold me the condo in the Trellis high-rise on 5th and K Streets. Recently, Art sold my condo for me to a new buyer in the Gaslamp. Therefore, I have worked with Art on both sides of the real estate transaction in San Diego. He has an in-depth knowledge of the market and how to most favorably market my condo. Additionally, Art is very responsive and always reachable by phone or text. He kept me updated as this transaction moved along so there were never any surprises. Art, also has a fantastic team to support the sales process.”
Frank Edsall

“I am delighted to strongly recommend Art Lewis as a seasoned, experienced realtor who really knows San Diego and has a dedication to customer service that is unmatched!  Art sent me listings that perfectly matched my desired parameters, and paid close attention to my tastes — what I wanted in a new home and what I didn’t need — each time we visited an available property.  His recommendations were on-target and his service was impeccable.  He would schedule viewings in a timely fashion, and always responded to my questions and requests quickly and with warmth and respect.  He is truly a knowledgeable realtor who is delightful to work with and can produce great results!  He knows the ins and outs of negotiating the deal and everything I never wanted to know about closing!  What a consummate professional and gentleman.  It’s my pleasure to highly recommend his realty services.  I will be referring him to all my friends, and use him again without hesitation as I continue to invest in real estate.”
Dr. CC Cameron

“Art is a great realtor! I emailed his firm asking for some information when we decided to sell our downtown condo. Art emailed me back within minutes with a ton of information. We met with him and he answered all our questions and was very helpful. Even when our timetable moved up by 2 weeks, he was quick to get everything set up for us and we went on the market that much quicker. Art is always very responsive, a down to earth guy (which is helpful in this market) and is super nice. He was well prepared with our market statistics, and helped guide us in selling our condo quickly for a good price. We are very impressed with the level of service and the outcome we received from this real estate transaction and it was all due to Art. I highly recommend him!”
Mieko Richards

“Excellent Realtor! Art is super nice to work with. Was very responsive to questions and always available for discussions on what was happening and how to proceed. It was a difficult sale due to extenuating factors, but Art always remained positive, and supportive. I would work with Art again!”
Connie Bell

“My wife and I could not have asked for a better experience with selling our downtown condo than we did with Art!  This was our 1st time selling any property and Art’s knowledge, professionalism and game plan was flawless!  He and his team were absolutely incredible!  If you are looking to buy or sell, I highly urge you to reach out to Art as he will not only get the job done, but will exceed your expectations!  Thanks again, Art!”
Scott Morrone

“Art is the best realtor we have worked with in over 40 years of buying and selling homes.  He understood what we were looking for and limited the properties he showed us to those that met our criteria.  He prepared and submitted our bid immediately and kept us informed regarding progress.  Since we lived out of town, he made use of electronic document signings to minimize our travel.  He went the extra mile when closing was delayed by an inexperienced escrow company.  You can’t go wrong working with Art.”
Paul Bevilaqua

“Simply Art is the best at what he does. From the start to the finish. Researching all databases making sure that we listed property at the best possible price.  Communication and follow thru with every detail of transaction. Willing to do what it took to keep things moving toward the final closing.”
Joe Hill

“Art was a great choice to help me find the ideal property. Once we found it, Art was masterful at negotiating in my best interest. Very impressed with how well he communicated with me and his use of technology. His response to my Texts, emails and calls was almost instant making me feel like I was his only client. Imagine if the rest of the world had his great service. WOW ! Thank you Art.”
Greg Campbell

“A+ work. Art help make my dream a reality. He made the process pleasant, and easy. He was there each step of the way. He is a true professional. I would highly recommend him.”
Russ Pisano

“Art made the process of selling our home as easy and painless as could be. He has a great command of the market, knew what we should do to make the home marketable, and helped guide us along the process every step of the way. We appreciated that he always responded to our inquiries in a timely manner. Thanks Art!”
Allison & Ryan Simkin

“Our daughter wanted to stay and live in San Diego after college.  We thought it would be a good investment to buy a place and have her rent from us.  She had an area picked out where she wanted to live and Art helped us find the right place.  After a lot of looking and offers on short sales, Art found us one that we were both excited about and help us thru the process.  Since we live out of town – he was helpful with the financing and purchase. Since he lived in the neighborhood, we even had him check in with our daughter and gave us recommendations on contractors and advice on fixing up the place.
Eight years later, he help us sell the property and found our daughter a place of her own.  He was always professional, thorough, and answered all our questions right away.  We can’t say enough good things about our experience and how Art made everything happen very smoothly.”
Jean Goldsmith

“Art is the man. I have done a lot of real estate transactions and Art is one of the best Realtors I have worked with. From beginning to end he was there to answer all questions and handle and coordinate all tasks. A lot of Realtors shy away from the tedious work and only focus on the money they will make at the end of the transaction, not Art. Art approaches the transaction as if it is your transaction, not his. A pleasure to work with and I would refer him to anyone in San Diego. Thank you, Art.”
Josh Sternberg

“Art helped my family purchase a house over 8 years ago. I have recommended Art several times since and I have only heard good things from my friends. This year Art helped me purchase my first home in Encinitas. Art is very responsive and always available to help. He goes above and beyond to make the home buying process easy. Art was very trustworthy and gave me good advice, as this was my first home purchase. He really wants to make sure you purchase a home that you will be happy with and that is at a good price. It is obvious that Art has the best interest of his clients. I would highly recommend Art.”
Lindsay Goldsmith

“We had the pleasure of having Art Lewis at Neuman & Neuman as our real estate agent for the recent purchase of our downtown condo.  Art was impressive from the moment we met him.  He listened to our needs, contacted us immediately when the perfect unit came available and completed the transaction flawlessly.  He is very responsive, always positive and goes out of his way to take care of all the details. He is professional, well organized and made the whole process enjoyable. Art Lewis has our highest recommendation!”
Debbie & Michael Maier

“Art was great in helping us buy a new home. He helped us buy our dream home before it even went on the market, and we would not have been able to without his expertise. He was always available and helped answer all our questions. Art treated us like his only clients (although I know we aren’t!) with his attentiveness and personal touch.”
Chris & Allison Finley

“We had the absolute pleasure of finding Art Lewis six years ago when we moved to San Diego when we were in the market for a downtown condo. We adored working with him and when we recently learned we would be moving away, we of course selected Art to sell our condo. He is incredibly patient, kind, resourceful and responsive. He made the process easy for us and all the marketing materials looked great. He knows the market incredibly well and had a lot of great suggestions to help us get our place sold quickly. We had several offers within days of listing the property and we trusted his advice and sound judgement along the way. He really listens and cares about his clients. He went above and beyond to help us at every step. If you are buying or selling your home in San Diego, we highly recommend hiring Art as your agent. If we ever have the opportunity to move back to the San Diego area, we will absolutely reach out to him again!”
Mary Beth Mowery

“Art is the best. Art came to me highly recommended when I could not find any homes on the market that fit my needs. I was looking to buy a home in a community of 130 homes and of those, many did not fit our needs. Art founds us 3 chooses: a home that was about to fall out of escrow, a home that was seriously considering to sell and our dream home… it was being prepared to be listed. We bought it before it went on the market. Art was extremely knowledgeable, always available, quick to reply and always at our service. As out of town buyers… he did everything for us. Of our 7 buy/sells in the last 2 years he has been the best agent we have worked with or met… ”
Tom Hoffman

“Having been out of the housing market for a few years, our recent yearly contribution to the IRS convinced my wife and I we needed to stop renting and begin owning again.  The wife was fortunate to come across Art when we were looking for a realtor. We decided that we didn’t want to purchase a house and that we really enjoy apartment style living especially in Mission Valley.  Art showed us a couple of places that were really nice but just didn’t feel right to us. We proceeded to tell Art what we wanted as would anyone: View, location, security, comfortability.  We were not in any hurry and let him know that we would look until we found what we wanted.  Amazingly, Art found us a place that checked off almost all the boxes. He set right to work advising us with every step of the purchase working morning till night in a short amount of time. Art even took the time on his days off to come by the place and take care little things that other realtors probably wouldn’t take the time to do.  It is a wonderful feeling to know that you have someone working so hard to help you purchase and I’m sure he has the same tenacity when it comes to selling.   I never thought that I would say that I have a personal realtor but I can now. Art is the absolute best and I hope we have the opportunity to work with him again.  Thanks Art!”
Jeff Ivey

“The Gregg Neuman team is excellent. We worked directly with Art Lewis who is simply the best real estate agent we have ever known. My wife and I have sold countless residential and commercial properties and Art Lewis set a new, 5-star, standard. His responsiveness, knowledge, and willingness to go above and beyond are clear from the very beginning. Art Lewis provided outstanding support beginning with his professional introduction to the Neuman team and finishing with top-notch service and updates until the wire transfer of funds was complete. Simply put, we wouldn’t work with anyone else.”
Steve Nestor

“Our introduction to Art was by default.  We had contacted one of his associates who, we learned later was out of the country, to list our property,  so Art did the initial contract paperwork.  As we were leaving town ourselves, he arranged for delivery and installation of appliances, cleaning, etc.  It was a seamless and painless process. We felt Art was very helpful, even though this was not his listing.
I would recommend Art to someone seeking a reliable, personable and competent agent.”
Annette Lau

“My husband and I consider ourselves very lucky to have been fortunate enough to connect with Art. We have worked with real estate agents before and we were not looking forward to doing it again. He was amazing . He was always one step ahead on every aspect of our home buying experience. He proved to be our greatest advocate during some difficult negotiations and stayed calm throughout the process which in turn helped us to not give up. He went above and beyond in every phase of the purchase of our home. Art is a humble and kind man who truly has his clients best interest in mind and we will always remember that without him we would not have been able to get the home of our dreams. We will never allow anyone but Art to be our agent in the future for any more home purchases.”
Cathy Ivey

“Art Lewis was an amazing agent, his attention to details, and one on one interaction is outstanding. Art’s insight to the market is very informative and consistent with comps. Art personally assisted in many aspects of the sale and provided hands on details. His patience is uncanny and kind. His ability to negotiate is consistent and reliable. Art was readily available anytime questions or concerns would arise. Overall, I would highly recommend Art Lewis as a realtor!!!”
Margaret Ann-Pena

“I have known Art for 14 years. He helped us purchase 3 homes and sell 3 homes that were located in Downtown San Diego, Sorrento Valley, and Carmel Valley. Art always obtained the best possible price for our homes even during very difficult market conditions. Art has a great work ethic and is a   genuinely nice person. He comes well prepared for selling or buying appointments by preparing a significant amount of research – homes recently sold in the area, background information beyond the MLS, plans for the day with appointments lined up, and recommendations and issues already outlined. Art follows up quickly with requests, emails, texts, etc. He is always ready to go the extra mile for his clients. For example, our security system on a house that was for sale while we were out of town. Art figured out the problem and quickly fixed a broken panel.  You can entrust your investment with Art.”
Matt Moran

“We cannot say enough about our stellar experience with Art Lewis. He is fantastic agent to work with from start to finish. I’d consider myself to be a pretty demanding customer that had a constant eye on the MLS. Art was so on it! He is pleasantly professional and listened attentively to our request concerning property in the downtown area. Art is also extremely knowledgeable and knows the history and area inside and out. We will gladly and confidently recommend him and most definitely work with him again in the future. We love our condo in Aria/Cortez Hill”
Cheryl Milana & Rolland Gerhardt

“Art has been amazing throughout this entire process. From the moment we began scouting locations for our investment property to the point of closing he has been an invaluable source of good information and advice as well as a wise negotiator on our behalf. His knowledge of the rental and homeowners market, his incredible responsiveness, his accurate assessment of risk when it comes to submitting an offer and his calm problem solving mode in the face of unforeseen setbacks – in short, just the guy for the job. We had worked with other agents in the past and Art is in a whole new league. We are using him to sell our house later this summer.”
Lia Pripstein-Lane & Eric Lane

“It was a pleasure working with Art , he was always available to show us different condo options, excellent knowledge of the Downtown Sand Diego area , he was honest to tell us the happenings around every condo development.”
Jorge & Norma Lizarraga

“Art Lewis is the consummate professional. He is dedicated, responsive, thoughtful, creative,  and smart. He is knowledgeable about the areas in which we were looking and was familiar with past and future development. He is hardworking and if he didn’t know the answer to a question, he researched it. He is organized and pays attention to detail. He is funny, and witty and patient. He is honest, dependable and reliable. The other realtors all seemed to respect and trust Art, which is critical in the real estate business. We would highly recommend Art Lewis as your buying or selling agent.”
Natalie Venezia

“We worked with Art on a condo deal in San Diego. Art was very professional and forthright in his dealings. He was very knowledgeable. We would recommend Art to anyone!”
Andy Zalkow

“Art Lewis helped my wife and I buy our first home. We interviewed several agents referred to us through friends before deciding to work with Art. The most important quality to us was someone trustworthy, who looked out for his client’s interests at all times, who was knowledgeable and competent, and most of all, someone whom we felt comfortable with through all phases of home-buying. From the first meeting and throughout the home-buying process, Art embodied all these qualities and more.  From beginning to end (home searching to close of escrow), Art helped us find a home that fit all of our needs in our budget in less than 10 weeks. We talked to Art almost every day during this time through email, text messages, and phone calls. He was always available to answer any questions and address any concerns during that time and even after the process was done.  Home-buying can be a very long and stressful process, but having Art Lewis as our realtor made the process fun, manageable, and pain-free. We cannot give Art a higher recommendation as a realtor and as a person.”
Huy Nguyen & Liezel Labios

“We have known Art since before he began his career as a buyer’s agent at Prudential Real Estate (now Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices) in Downtown San Diego, and am truly shocked as to why more buyers do not have representation on their end during the transaction process; the real work truly begins after you find a house to buy.  As a professional real estate agent, Art Lewis helped us find our dream home in the Del Mar/Carmel Valley region of North County after an ongoing search, which began in Downtown San Diego 6 years prior. He was extremely flexible with his time, especially since we were relocating from Los Angeles.  We can honestly say, we could not have successfully closed escrow in time without the help of a professional Realtor like Art; he was there to patiently guide us through every step of the process, night and day.  If you have plans to purchase a house in North County to call “home” or real estate in San Diego as an investment property, I highly recommend contacting Art – he will exceed your expectations!”
Ryan & Edna Lash

“We worked with Art Lewis for the purchase of our first home and we could not have asked for a better realtor and home-buying experience.  As first-time homebuyers, we felt we had done our research and had a decent amount of knowledge about home buying, but were still anxious going into the home-buying process.  Art not only calmed our anxieties, but with his experience and vast knowledge of the property buying/selling process and of the San Diego real estate market, we were able to find and purchase our first home with confidence and ease.  Art was very responsive and we appreciated his honesty, straightforwardness, and how he unfailingly looked out for our best interests.  We highly recommend Art to anyone looking to buy a home in San Diego – he truly is a master at his craft!”
Melissa Bacci & Glenn Perez

“This was our second time working with Art.  We received a positive recommendation from an acquaintance to use Art when we moved to San Diego, and found him very knowledgeable on most all areas around and in San Diego.  He is pleasant to be around and has a positive attitude, but also knows how to comment on conditions of home in appropriate ways.  He wasn’t just trying to get us into a home to close a deal, but was willing to spend countless hours looking at dozens upon dozens of homes.  He learned what we liked and was very patient with us.  Often it was just me going around to look at homes, then trying to FaceTime with my wife so that she could remotely see the home.  We found his view on homes, particularly how a home shows very much in line with ours.  When a need arose to sell our home in San Diego to move out of state, there was no question in our mind who we wanted to work with.  Not just somebody from his office, but only with him.  We knew that he would help us present our home in the best possible way to sell it quickly, and sure enough it did.  Listed on a Friday evening, and had a good offer in hand a few days later.  I developed a lot of trust in Art, and now consider him a friend.”
Dave & Karla Peachey

“I think we know Art pretty well. He is the ultimate professional who will always have your best interests in mind through the the buying or selling process . Our recent purchase was our 3rd real estate transaction with him. We first bought a condo in University Heights as a 2nd home and commuted between Valencia and San Diego for family events and visits. When we outgrew the condo and wanted something larger, we sold it thru Art also. With the nice profit from the condo sale, we planned to buy a small 2nd home. Over time, that plan morphed into a full blown move to a single family home in the Talmadge area. We couldn’t be happier with our decision.  With all of our indecisiveness along the way, I can’t begin to guess how many locations Art showed us. I once asked if we had set some sort of record for the number of showings without a sale, and Art with a smile of his face, he reluctantly admitted that while not a record, we were probably somewhere in his top 5. On several occasions, with San Diego’s fast moving market, we found ourselves in situations with multiple offers on a property. Art counseled us against our inclination to over pay and assured us that the right house at the right price was out there, which of course it was.  I think it has already been said, but I’ll say it again, if Art can’t find you a home, nobody can.”
Robert & Kandi Vanina

“I was lucky enough to meet Art not long after relocating to San Diego. I’ve lost count of how many places he showed me along the way, but Art stuck with me, from a downtown bachelor pad to a single-family home after I met my wife.  I knew we weren’t Art’s only clients, yet every step of the way, it felt like we were.  Instant responses to emails, texts, and phone calls – it was really quite incredible. I’m not sure how he does it.  As we zeroed in on our target neighborhood, Art was truly accommodating showing us home after home. When our inspections uncovered a cracked slab in what we thought was our dream home, Art convinced us to walk away and keep looking for the right place.  We ultimately did find that dream home with Art’s help.  And thanks to Art, it was a very smooth transaction.”
Doug & Lesley Coe

“My husband and I have bought and sold quite a few homes and dealt with many realtors, but none that have come close to comparing to Art Lewis.  Mr. Lewis is the most professional, patient and helpful realtor we have worked with. He always returned our calls and responded to all our questions and emails very promptly. He goes over all the various stages of procurement and guided us along each step of the way. He keeps your best interest in mind by informing you as to the true value of the property based on current market conditions and comparable homes in the area.  It’s a true pleasure working with Mr. Lewis and it’s an honor working with and knowing such a gentleman.  If Mr. Lewis cannot find the right home for you, no one can.”
Linda & Ben Mansour

“Art Lewis is extremely patient, professional, and courteous.”

“Art has far exceed our expectations. He is extremely knowledgeable, proactive, and professional. He is always prepared to answer any questions and is prompt to respond to emails.  We couldn’t have closed on the house within 30 days without him. He helped us negotiate a good contract. He scheduled, attended,  and advised on the home inspection. He walked us through the escrow process and much more.  He made sure we were settled in comfortably after moving day.  Art receives our highest recommendation and we will continue to refer him to our family and friends.”
Van Dao & Dat Tran

“Working with Art was a pleasure.  He is extremely responsive with communications and was very professional and organized.  He is very knowledgeable about certain neighborhoods and honestly suggested another agent if a neighborhood was preferred outside his area of familiarity.  I would recommend him and I would work with him again.”
Jeff Boyd

“Art Lewis is simply the best in the business when it comes to your real estate needs. My wife and I are empty nesters and wanted to downsize as retirement approached. Art recognized both our financial and emotional needs during this difficult transition.  Blending warmth with an attention to detail, Art guided us through the process with patience and clarity. We could not be more pleased with the result: a beautiful new home which perfectly fits our needs.  Art was so patient with us and willing to show us any and every property we asked about from Downtown to La Jolla. In the end, we wound up 5 minutes from our previous home and we’re thrilled! Art was the best!  Thank you, Art!”
Glen and Sandy Pritzker

“As first time home buyers, we were very hesitant on most common issues. Art was not only patient and professional, but we valued his opinion in all matters. Art Lewis absolutely made this experience a very positive one and we highly recommend him.”
Shinobu Bharaj & Conrad Hindert

“Art is a competent and knowledgeable Realtor with a deep understanding of the market and just how difficult a relocation move can be.  Patient and very willing to work to find the best situation.   Glad that he was on my side in this move”
 John Brown

“Dear Art, it is our pleasure to recommend your extraordinary capabilities to find us our second home in San Diego – especially in this timing where it is hard to find something convenient in the Downtown area.  Art has a great level of professionalism and honesty with his clients. He listens carefully to our requirements and without wasting any time he brings a short list of homes to browse that meet what we wanted.  Art gives advice on how to prepare the financial offer and research the market prices and keep his clients up to date. Art goes beyond the limits and gives his clients an intensive overview about the future plan in the area and how to protect his client’s investment for the coming few years.  After closing the deal Art remains in touch and gave us many courtesy calls to make sure we are satisfied with the sale.  It was our pleasure to work with Art and we would always use his services for any other future real estate investments.”
Rami & Muna Abdeljaber

“Just bought a condo in Downtown San Diego. I was looking for a second home in southern California and didn´t imagine how difficult was to find a place and all the paper work needed. Art Lewis found the right unit and took me all the way in the negotiation and buying.  The assistance of Mr. Lewis was a key factor on making the deal.  I highly recommend his services”.
Alejandro P. Barron

“A real pleasure to work with, will go the distance to make sure you are happy and find what you want.  Always available and will put your needs first. Will work with again when we decide to buy another house.”
Brian & Tanya Grimes

“Working with Art to help us find our home was a pleasure. Promptly returning phone calls and ready to show homes upon request. Friendly and personable. ”
Pat & Mary Tarantino

“Art Lewis is the “Super Pro” of Berkshire Hathaway real estate professionals.  We think of him as our Tom Brady, quarterbacking for us for a win.  Why?  We met Art several years ago when he showed us a condo in our building we thought we might be interested in.  We were looking for more space & a spectacular view, like the one we have. Art was diligent in contacting us every time a condo came on the market that he thought we might want to look at.  Finally, on New Year’s Eve day, Art contacted us about a new listing. He showed it to us on January 2nd. With his guidance and thoughtful input, we made an offer that evening at 7 o’clock. Art made some very thoughtful and specific suggestions to ensure our offer would be accepted.  There were five other offers submitted. At 2 o’clock on January 4, the seller did accept our offer. It would never have happened without his expertise and guidance.  “Super Art” then went into action, working closely with the seller’s agent.  It was a complex and convoluted situation because the seller was an offshore trust. Because of Art’s experience, thoroughness and humor, we were able to close on the condo January 12. That rapid speed effort would never have been possible without his dogged determination, vigilant follow through & professionalism.  He was a joy to work with, at 6:45 a.m. or 11:30 p.m.  It was literally a round-the-clock transaction for about 5 days. He was unflappable.  If we hadn’t found the condo of our dreams, where we plan to live forever, we would be excited to work with Art again. But we have, thanks to Super Art.  Therefore, hire Art as your professional real estate agent.  We guarantee a happy ending.
Bethany & Lee Derrough

“Art Lewis was a stellar real estate agent to work with. From our initial meeting with him, we knew we were in good hands. Very efficient, doesn’t waste your time and no pressure. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed his humor during our many outings to view listings. Art always listened to what we wanted, didn’t mind that we kept requesting more viewings and was of immense help through the whole process of purchasing our first home. He has an amazing talent to multitask and make you feel as though you are his only client. His responses to emails/texts/calls were exceptionally fast and kept the process moving along. We would hands down use Art again for our future real estate needs and would highly recommend him to family and friends.”
Dr. Rakesh & Rana Guttikonda

“We worked with Art to purchase our first home and couldn’t be more pleased with the service he provided. We were always confident that he was working in our best interest and he communicated with us throughout the entire process. He is so responsive to emails, calls & texts that he has set the bar for all other professionals we deal with. He was always available and consistently exceeded our expectations. We consider ourselves fortunate to have met Art and would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a real estate professional.”
Jeremy & Bernadette Kovacevich

“My story with Art Lewis began not long ago when my wife and I decided to relocate and sell our home.  I must say Art was an absolute pleasure to work with.  I’ll spare you the details but the circumstances of our sale were a bit complicated to say the least.  At first, I was not very confident we would be able to sell our home.  After looking at our situation, Art told me “we’ll sell this house”.  Art and his team were an absolute pleasure to work.  Art was extremely responsive and helpful at each step of the process.  Art has a way of slowing the situation down and explaining things.  Goes without saying Art quickly took my lack of confidence and turned it into hopeful optimism.  As promised, Art sold our home just like he said he would.  It was a lengthy and stressful period for my family however seeing “Art Lewis” in my email inbox made us feel like everything was going to be okay.  After we closed escrow I made a joke to Art about how for weeks I had become accustom to checking my email every hour for a message from him.  I told him it felt like he was breaking up with us.  Art jokingly replied our relationship went from “hot and heavy to casual real quick”.  I guess the wife and I just have to buy another house from Art then turn right around and have him sell it for us.  Art, you rock!  Wife and I are still naming our first born son ART LEWIS!!! Thank you!”
Ruben & Marcia Quinonez

“Reading the testimonials about Art that have been posted already, it is difficult to find better ways to describe his work.  Art was on top of everything, constantly available and communicative with us, knowledgeable, and negotiated superbly. Important to us also was his sense of integrity and straightforward attitude. We really can’t imagine any other realtor doing a better job.”
Harvey & Ina Mozer

“Art Lewis with Berkshire Hathaway gave my fiance and I better service than we could have ever imagined.  He was on top of everything and stood by us the whole 75 days we were in escrow.  Art was extremely reliable and very prompt in our communications making it very easy for us and our busy schedule.  He went beyond the call of duty in so many ways for us and even the seller.  Without a doubt he has won our loyal service for any future purchases. ”
Wade Worthington

“I was lucky enough to find Art so he could help me with my first home purchase.  He responded so quickly to emails, I never felt like I was waiting for him to reply.  Art talked me through the whole process so I never had any unexpected surprises.  I’m very happy to have him for my first time buying and felt very secure about the whole process with his knowledge and advice.  Thank you (once again).”
Jesse Bowman

“Our best San Diego real estate move was finding Art Lewis. Tired of hotels, high parking fees and eating all our meals out, we started searching for a condo to use during our frequent trips down South to visit family.  Five years ago we found that condo with Art’s guidance. Although the unit was in foreclosure at the time, the sale went through flawlessly.  Recently we made the decision to get something bigger and we again called on Art’s talents to list and sell our condo. Art and his company did a great job marketing the unit on our behalf. It sold quickly (for almost 50% more than we bought it for) and we are eagerly looking for something larger. I have no doubt that Art will help us find that home as well.  Art has always been there for us. He has great communications skills when we need something, drive down on short notice to view a property and there is never any pressure to make a hasty decision. He wants to help you find the home that it right for you.  Thanks Art!”
Robert & Kandi Vanina

“If there is any one statistic that sets agents apart in this competitive real estate market, it should be the number of repeat customers (and customer referrals).   Given the complexity of real estate transactions today, you must have someone on your side with experience, expertise, honesty, and motivation.  The agent must be able to work on a professional level with other agents and have a good reputation in the community.   Another important quality is responsiveness to calls and emails, and willingness to meet, even after hours.   Offering on-line signing options really makes things easier.  Art meets all these requirements and more.  Art helped us purchase a condo almost two years ago (please see our prior positive review).   I said it then, and will say it again, he is by far the best agent I have ever worked with (and I have a lot of experience in real estate).  There was never any question who to use for a second purchase.   We had been looking for some time for just the right place, and Art showed us a lot of potential properties before finding the one we would buy.    Art was very supportive, even when we had to cancel an escrow during due diligence, when it became clear it was not right for us.   You have lots of choices when it comes to real estate agents, but if you want a seamless, comfortable, and successful experience, there is really on one choice:  Art Lewis.”
Dan & Donna Peterson

“This was our third transaction with Art. We keep coming back because Art is knowledgeable, responsive and professional. Art is great if you are an experienced buyer or seller. He knows real estate. He is even better if you are a first time buyer or seller. He can educate and guide you through the process.  We are constantly amazed at how quickly he responded to our questions and as well as keeping us informed during escrow.”
Barb & Tom Ivory

“Art’s professionalism is unparalleled; during my entire home buying process I felt like I was in the drivers’ seat calling the shots and Art provided great guidance. He never made me feel pressured to go out of budget or make a decision on something I wasn’t confident about. Being a first time homebuyer and new to the state, I knew little to nothing about the escrow/ closing process.  Art made everything very manageable and less daunting and even provided encouragement when we hit some speed bumps along the way!  He made himself very available via phone or email if I had any questions or concerns. I felt like Art was more concerned about me getting everything I wanted in a home and in my closing requirements than making the sale. It really was a pleasure working with Art.”
Caitlin Steckler

“I worked with Art in 2010 and again in 2014.  The first time around Art patiently showed me at least 150 properties over a year’s period before I found just what I wanted.  I never felt any pressure to make a decision.  I always felt like his advice was not “just what I wanted to hear” but more of an objective point of view.  Yes, he is prompt and efficient with his client’s time and I would second the “tech savvy” accolades.  I never felt like I was asking too much of him when I really was!   Art was hard charging in negotiating a better deal than I thought possible each time.  I felt like he was and advocate for my interests, not just a Realtor.  If this were Yelp, Art would get 5 stars!”
Joanne Gonzalez

“I really enjoyed working with Art to buy my first home!!  He is very honest, sincere, and patient.  He will respond to your texts and emails almost as soon as you send them!  He made this process so much easier and more enjoyable!  You are the best! Thanks Art!”
Jamae Marcinko

“We have worked with Art on several properties, in addition to referring him to family, and will note that Art is AMAZINGLY PROFESSIONAL, which makes him our number one choice of agents!  He is very tech savvy and skilled in his industry. One of his strongest character traits is being EXTREMELY PROMPT in responding to every request which has been crucial in getting our offers in the right place at the right time; with Art… time is of the essence. Art is the type of agent that has made our decisions and purchases successful.”
Cheryl Dwyer

“As a real estate agent myself trying to relocate to San Diego I realized I needed to hire someone familiar the area and with great luck found Art Lewis.   We had chatted via emails for several years regarding many properties from La Jolla to Downtown.  Art gives PROFESSIONALISM a new meaning.  Never pushy, honest, and quite humorous.    I never thought I would end up at The Pinnacle.    What a wild ride to find the perfect place,  sure glad he never gave up!   Art Lewis is a 5 Star Agent.  Thanks Again Art!”
Steven Sole

“Hiring Art Lewis was the best move I ever made when it came to purchasing a condo in San Diego. Two years ago I asked Art to show me some downtown condos. I told him I wouldn’t be buying until I sold my home in another city. But I asked him to stick with me and eventually it would happen.  He did. Every time I came into town we would look at another 3-4 condos even though he had no guarantee I would ever buy one.  Well, to make a long story short, it took 2 years for me to sell that house and find a condo I liked well enough to buy it. But I really appreciated that Art kept his promise to keep showing me more condos until I found the one I wanted…And in terms of closing escrow, Art was right there.  This is where you need a real estate agent the most, and this is where I give Art a 10 (on a scale of 10). He was right there with any answer I needed, and believe me, I needed a lot of them. If I had an immediate question, I would call him, and he would call me right back. If I needed him to send me something by e-mail, he did it in a matter of minutes not hours.  Even though he has other clients, you feel like you always have his undivided attention. That’s the way a  true professional should do business and take my word for it, Art is a true professional.”
Ben Kalb

“Art expertly guided us through the process of buying our first home. He did a great job negotiating the price and terms of the purchase and helping us feel confident in our choice. From start to finish, his calm and positive outlook was much appreciated. We will gladly recommend him to friends and family looking to buy or sell.  Thanks Art!”
Christopher DiLeo & Cynthia Schairer

“Art Lewis is the best! We knew we were in great hands since day one. Art left no stone unturned or question unanswered. His knowledge, diligence, care, good humor, trustworthiness and professionalism are quite admirable and made the purchase of our condo a breeze. He continuously looked out for our best interests and his efforts provided us with a great deal. Outstanding. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to either sell or purchase in the San Diego area. Thanks again Art!”
Claudia & Armando Esquer

“Art did an excellent job in the research, negotiations, and completion of the recent purchase of my home. I couldn’t be happier with how the process went. Additionally, it was a lot of fun to work with Art! Thank you!”
David Price

“Art Lewis is the best in the business, he is without compare.  I worked with Art for years before I was finally in a position to buy.  He was so patient and never gave up on me or dismissed me as a ‘nuisance’.”
Tom Juris

“Art is a class act – he helped me for over three years to find the perfect place.”
Amanda Morris

“I have and would recommend Art Lewis to anyone looking for property Downtown.  He knows his stuff!  He’s patient, not pushy, but certainly persistent.  I wish there were more like him!”
Rebecca & Habib Motlagh

“As a first-time buyer in the San Diego area, Art and his team took the time to help us identify our needs and desires and strategically find an excellent condo in the highly desirable Escala condo complex area.   Art’s knowledge of the area and his patience with exploring all types of floor plans helped us secure a premium property prior to listing and at a great price.  His advice was on target, professional and right on the mark.  We could not have picked a better agent or person to deal with thru the whole process. Thanks Art!”
Brandt and Stacey Williams

“I recommend you because you’re good at your job and you’re a straight shooter … Professional and trustworthy.  I told (my co-workers) that you focus on what is right for your customer and not on closing a deal regardless, just so you can collect your commission.  This is not always the case in real estate!”
Peter Wells

“Your degree of professionalism, something that I have been witness to for over three years since we first bought in San Diego, is quite frankly, unparalleled in my experience and having gone through multiple real estate transactions, I can speak from experience. Your kindness, easy accessibility and your devotion to your clients’ best interests is inspiring and creates a level of confidence in our decisions that minimizes any second-guessing. With us, foreigners to you, you took unknown entities, set us up in your beautiful community and when we had to bring our son back home, you not only read the market right, you did not mock, trivialize or cry “too hard” when we asked a price that some may have interpreted as high. You said to us, “let’s go for it” and lo and behold, you were right. When a couple of “hiccups” presented themselves, you came with solutions not complaints.  Maria and I are indebted to you and as we plan on semi-retiring to San Diego, there is absolutely no doubt that we will be using you, the realtor of realtors, Art Lewis.”
Peter & Maria Katsionis

“We can’t say enough about Art Lewis.  He was there every step of the way with advice, personal assistance, and being a resident himself, I doubt anyone  knows Escala better.   He found us just the right place for our daughter and helped us beat all the other bidders (and there were many).  Art provided the convenience of signing forms and disclosures online, which saved a lot of headaches.   When the time came for a walk-through, not only was he there, but he arranged for a locksmith, then came back on his own time to help secure the property for us after the cleaning staff was finished (and even fixed a minor garage door problem).  If you want first class service from an agent whose reputation with other agents is unmatched, you should choose Art Lewis.  He is the best and most responsive real estate agent we have ever had—5 Stars.”
Dan & Donna Peterson

“I would give Art more stars if I could. Being a first-time home buyer is always tough, and it can be difficult to find an agent you can both trust professionally and personally.  Being fairly new to the San Diego area, I had limited knowledge of the areas that I wanted to live. My first agent who I was referred to by a friend/colleague was terrible to say the least; he was more concerned with selling me a house than finding me a home that I wanted. He made me feel like my budget wasn’t high enough to find me the kind of home I was looked for. I always felt discouraged and rushed with him. Thankfully I got rid of him and found Art who helped me find the perfect home, not only in the neighborhood but also the complex of my first choice.
Art is the greatest agent I could have asked for. He knew when to be straightforward with me and his advice was highly valued during the whole process. He asked me about my likes and dislikes, took the time to show me homes in different areas and was very knowledgeable. He was with me every step of the way, even when he didn’t have too. He was patient, reliable, trustworthy, and friendly. I felt at ease talking to him about things I didn’t know because I knew he had my best interest in mind. I would list all the amazing things he did to make this experience as smooth, fast and less stressful as possible but I want you all to finish reading my reviews and not skip it because it is too long.  I am very thankful to have found him, I couldn’t have done it without Art!! I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
Merry Mellse

“Art made house hunting and escrow process a breeze. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to really make you feel as if you are his only client. After our first meeting, Art was able to pick out potential properties that had exactly the features we wanted (it was like he read our minds!). Art is a genuinely good person and it has been a pleasure getting to know him. He really does care about his clients finding the right home.”
Bryan & Tania Ivory

“Rick and I were just thinking of you this weekend. We are here in San Diego. I am sitting here working and enjoying the view from our fabulous condo loving our place. We have you to thank for helping to make this happen. We love our building and our condo. Anyway, we both agreed you were the best realtor we ever had. We also were very impressed with the Neuman & Neuman team overall. Everyone was extremely professional. ”
Kim & Rick Rejnert

“We especially want to recognize Art for his time, effort, endless diligence in working with us over the years as our agent as we tried to figure out where in Downtown we wanted to live. He was always available and somehow in his calm manner was able to navigate us through the unpredictable Downtown real estate market. He earned and gained our trust and respect and never at anytime did he abuse this relationship in an effort to move us towards a deal which would not have been best for us in the long run. That quality is something which in my opinion based on other transactions is very rare. There were many times we would want to give up and make an offer out of fear we would not find what we really wanted but Art kept us on track and spent whatever time was necessary to keep the process moving along. In my business career, I have dealt with many different real estate brokers and agents, and I must say Art has been one of or the top in terms of emotional intelligence, business savvy and know how to get a deal done. Thanks again to all and we are so looking forward into moving into our new home.”
Gary & Marlene Cohen

“Art Lewis was very patient with us, never dismissing us, and always helpful, despite an almost 2-year search. He could not have been more courteous and responsive. Everything was smooth and well-coordinated.”
Mike & Christine Watry

“Art Lewis could author the book entitled “The Quintessential Real Estate Agent.” While working with him on our San Diego condo, I had to deal with another agent who was selling my mother’s house in Utah. The difference between the two was dramatic–day and night. Professional to the core, thoroughly knowledgeable, and unfailingly available by email or phone, Art never disappointed. Do yourself a favor and have him steer you through the murky waters of California real estate.”
Tom & Becky Durham

“I have known Art Lewis for a grand total of 45 days or so. He saved me $35,000 on my purchase of a condo at Park Place in the Marina District. I have been buying and selling real estate since the 70’s so I have dealt with a few agents in my life. If you are a buyer you can hire Art as your agent with complete confidence. His knowledge of the real estate market is impressive. In addition he is an excellent negotiator and as far as communicating with clients he is the best I have ever dealt with. Not to mention a delightful person to be around! It was a pleasure to deal with Art Lewis and Neuman and Neuman.”
Richard Goldberg

“We recently purchased a short sale condo in the East Village area of San Diego. Art Lewis (from Neuman & Neuman) was our realtor and he was fantastic throughout the process, from finding a building we liked, to helping us through the massive paperwork. Art was always available and he truly cares about his clients.”
Susan & Joe Somers

“We couldn’t be happier with the job Art did!”
Robert Vanina & Kandi Schmidt

“We would like to thank Art Lewis for his excellent service as our buyer agent. His work and attitude is superb.”
Shahram Sharafi & Fatemah Falahat-Pisheh

“Art’s attention to detail and responsiveness is unparalleled. He truly makes you feel as if you are his only client, although you know that is not true. He combines the experience and knowledge necessary to maneuver the pitfalls of negotiation, the logistics of the endless paperwork and the ability to reach closure with everyone’s sanity intact! He combines that knowledge and experience with a sense of humor and sensitivity rarely found in today’s business world. These transactions are, after all, life changing. His sincerity is unique among those in a marketplace who have become all too jaded. Like a good book, we were almost sorry to see our interaction with Art end. We now have a beautiful condominium in the complex we want and it is waiting for our retirement. Art helped make our dream come true. We will be making many trips back to San Diego (from New Jersey before our final “one way ticket”. Rest assured, Art is considered a friend which we will always count among the many reason we love San Diego and the people in it.”
Nancy Hendershot

“Art Lewis has been an absolute pleasure to work with. In addition to his impeccable knowledge of the real estate market with all its nuances, he possesses a very high level of emotional intelligence, which makes communicating very easy, pleasant and productive. He responds to every email and phone call immediately and gives detailed answers to every question. I am very happy that Art was my realtor for my first purchase of real estate and I am looking forward to working with him again in the future.”
Anna Mosashvili

“I enjoyed every moment of working with Art Lewis! He is great! At times Art would respond to e-mails before I returned to my inbox! He never kept regular working hours – he was very attentive to me. I greatly appreciated everything he did for me. I have recommended Art to everyone that will listen. I can never thank Art enough.”
Talin Yesaie

“Outstanding customer service!! Art Lewis is a prize. No call, text or e-mail EVER went unanswered – even at night! For a foreign buyer American real estate can be quite daunting. Art Lewis was diligent, thorough, and always had answers or got them. Without hesitation I would use him again. I wish he could sell some of my other properties up here!”
Peter & Maria Katsionis

Jan-Carlo & Gail Jillissen

“Art Lewis was an absolute pleasure to work with – knowledgeable, friendly and always easy to get a hold of for questions. I’ve worked with several Realtors in the past, and Art Lewis is the best in this regard. As mentioned above, Art is the best Realtor I have worked with (10 transactions in the past 18 years) and has been an absolute pleasure to work with. I strongly feel he got me the best deal possible on my purchase.”
Steven Bras

“Art could not have been more of a pleasure to work with. Although I know he was simultaneously working with other clients, he was so focused on our purchase and so responsive that it felt like we were the only people he was working with. He was extremely professional and knowledgeable about our transaction and was able to get us into our ‘dream’ home, which was more than we imagined. We are so elated to move forward in our lives with this beautiful home that he made possible.”

Art was fantastic – he was always accessible, friendly, and helpful. Art did a great job as our Realtor. He went above and beyond at every step in our process.”
Heidi & Zak Jacobson

“This was our second time working with Art and the Neuman Team and we are extremely satisfied with all of their efforts. Art went out of his way to help us find our dream home and we could not be more content! Art truly knows his real estate facts and figures and that is exactly why we enlisted him and the Neuman Team in our search for the perfect home. As always Art was knowledgeable, diligent, hard-working and extremely efficient. Thank you for being our agent and friend Art! Art was extremely impressive and quite responsive and fast when it came to returning phone calls and e-mails!”

We would definitely refer him to anyone in the market to purchase property and will call him in the future when we are ready to buy again. Thank you.”
