For the past several years, La Jolla-based REALTOR®, Dennis DeSouza, has ranked among the top 30 real estate agents in San Diego County—out of more than 5,000 licensed REALTORS®. With a team of highly-skilled real estate agents and support staff, DeSouza Select Properties is one of the top producing teams in the nation. RE/MAX recently awarded DeSouza his third Diamond Award, which is the most prestigious award in the RE/MAX family, and is given to less than 100 agents each year. DeSouza has also been consistently recognized as one of the top 100 agents with RE/MAX, out of well over 70,000 RE/MAX agents nationwide. Describing his business philosophy, DeSouza recently commented:— “Our systems are constantly improving each year. I am eager to learn what other top agents in the country are using to market homes, and to adopt the most successful systems into my business. For our buyers, we strive to save our clients money when they find the home they want to purchase, and for our sellers, our selling team receives continuous training on effective negotiation. These skills have saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in price negotiations over the years. With constant improvements, our systems continue to be highly efficient in selling our clients’ properties, as well as in locating homes for our buyer clients. I feel that when the market gets more difficult, it opens up an amazing opportunity to gain market share. In real estate, you must always be improving and delivering the highest service possible to your clients in order to be successful. You not only have to provide the absolute best service to survive in this industry, but you must also net your sellers more money, as well as negotiate on behalf of your buyers. Good service is not good enough any more!” Dennis DeSouza and his team are located in the Birdrock area of La Jolla, California.
