    Art Lewis Reviews

    “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 & Kelly Whalen
    “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!”
    Tim Wilp

    “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.”
    Dr. Ajit & Gunity Arora

    “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

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.”
