Best Decision I Made

Dear Mickey,

 "Having you as my listing agent was the best decision I made during the process of selling our Del Mar house. Thanks for providing guidance that enabled a maximum selling price and effortless closing in a very short period of time. You and your team got it done without impacting my schedule. 

Can't thank you enough"

Chuck S. - Del Mar

Best Realtor That We Have Encountered

"Mickey is the best realtor that we've encountered over 35 years of transactions. He's always up to date with what's going on in the market and continually educates himself with the latest training and certifications. His experience has provided him the expertise in determining market value for selling a home. He also has good negotiation skills benefiting a buyer or a seller."

Ken and Louise Y. - Carmel Valley and Del Sur

A Consummate Professional

"I have worked with numerous agents and brokers over the course of about 15 residential deals (houses, condos co-ops) as a buyer, seller or landlord. And Mickey is the best, full stop. A consummate professional who's always reliable, quick to respond, never gives bad advice; takes the initiative and surveys all with a savvy eye."

Andrew B. - Del Mar

Knowledgeable, Integrity and Hardworking

"Knowledgeable, integrity and a hardworking ethic describe Mickey McBratney. We were referred to Mickey by a friend and consider him a great 'find' in an area full of real estate agents. We have executed many real estate transactions in our careers and consider Mickey the best agent we have met or used."

Gainey and Lynn - Aviara in Carlsbad

We're Now In Our Dream Home

"We bought a home in Rancho Santa Fe at the start of the lock-down of the Covid pandemic. Our house in the Bay Area was not even listed yet, but Mickey helped us to negotiate a contingent offer, worked with our agent up north and we are now in our Dream Home. We and the kids couldn't be happier."

Dimi and Amy - Rancho Santa Fe Covenant

Masterful In The Negotiations

"Mickey is the best! I was on a tight time schedule to move to Hawaii. He used his expert consultant to stage the home, got it listed on the the MLS, and had an offer within a week. Incredible. He really knows the area and has the contacts to get it shown. His marketing is amazing. He was masterful in the negotiations and all of the closing details. The entire process took less than a month"

Patrick B. - Cardiff by the Sea

So Grateful

"So grateful that you were able to locate such a great 5 bedroom Craftsman Style home in Scripps Ranch for us. We now have room for the three kids, two dogs, and even family members visiting from out of town! Thanks for getting us in before the other buyers, and with a contingency to sell our home in the San Francisco Bay Area to boot!"

Armin and Liz E. - Scripps Ranch

A Happy Multiple Property Owner

"I don't know how I would have managed without Mickey for the past 23 years. He has handled several properties for me over the years. I have never hesitated to call him for guidance and goes out of his way for his clients."

Carole L - Cardiff by the Sea

Dennis and Marlene - Carmel Valley

My Gratitude For The Great Job

"I just want to extend my gratitude for the great job that you did in selling my mother's home in Oceanside. Since the home been a rental there was quite a bit of sprucing up that needed to be done. You brought in painters, termite companies and other professionals who were reliable and they did a great job."

Walt S. - Del Mar Resident

I really appreciate all your efforts.  Wishing you all the best.

The Cross Country Listing and Sale

Dear Mickey:

 We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks and gratitude for your extremely invaluable assistance in the selling of our dear, deceased Uncle's home and contents.

 During a very difficult time in our lives with the death of Uncle Jim and John's serious car accident, you appeared like "an angel from heaven."  Your assistance, cross-country, in getting the house presentable for sale, properly evaluating it, and selling it within days of being put on the market was phenomenal.  The condition of the house with the "weeds!", unlived-in and unkept for over three months, broken plumbing and loaded with personal effects, resulted in an impossible situation; however, your assistance with gardeners, cleaners, repairmen, etc., made this insurmountable task turn into an attractive, marketable house within a week.

Your knowledge and assistance, your caring and sincere friendship are beyond the role of realtors.  This friendship will be treasured forever and has helped close that chapter in our lives of a difficult situation with such pleasant memories.

 We would highly recommend you to anyone who wants their home sold quickly, efficiently and trustfully.  You are the greatest!  Thank you sincerely for everything.

 Warmest regards,

 John & Pat C. - Florida Residents - Sold Uncle Jim's Home in Cardiff by the Sea

The Cross Country Referral

Dear Mickey:

 Here is the letter that I sent to Mr. Edwin Gerace - Russell & Jeffcoat Realtors - Lexington, SC

"Dear Edwin:

I must congratulate you and Russell & Jeffcoat for the referral to Mickey McBratney in Del Mar, California. We could not have found better agents if we had personally selected them. He was professional, competent, and friendly. While we hated to leave Lexington, Mickey made certain that we found the perfect new home.

Thanks Again, best of luck, and congratulations on your pending marriage.


Ralph E. P."

Ralph E. - Vista

Thank you so much! I didn't know how I was going to sell my house, it needed some work and I tried listing it before with no success. I found you online, called and you've gone out of your way and beyond. I can start over fresh now! Thanks again.

- Ian Z.
