“We had tried to sell our home about 6 mos prior to signing with Tristan and did not have a good experience. Once we signed with Tristan, the transaction was much smoother and the house sold quickly. We were not in town very much during the escrow of our property and Tristan had to step in and take care of so many details that we just couldn't do from afar. We really appreciate him keeping us updated and really making the whole selling experience easy for us. Thanks so much, Tristan!”

Seller - Excellent Experience

“Tristan is hands down one of the most honest, patient, kind, understanding, knowledgeable Agent/Broker’s in this industry. I’ve been working with him for about 6 years now with multiple Real Estate and Refinance Transactions. Purchasing or refinancing property requires thoroughness and can be overwhelming each time. Tristan has always taken the time to break it down in simple terms and quell my impatient anxiety when it comes to big decisions like purchasing and refinancing on each home acquired. I absolutely trust he has my best interest as a client at heart and this is why he’s my go to each and every single time. Thank you for all that you do Tristan, building this real estate empire one deal at a time!”

“Tristan Smith was wonderful to work with on the sale of our home. He is professional, listens and guides you to where you need to be. He is honest with his feedback so there are no surprises later on. The market is a bit tough right now, but we believe we wouldn’t have sold at the price we did if we worked with another realtor. We highly recommend Tristan, he was a pleasure to work with.”


“When my family was ready to move up in our home, I was dreading the interview process of Real Estate agents. I needed to Sell my Clairemont Home and Purchase a new home in our Favorite area, Bay Park. I count myself lucky when a Business associate, that I trust, referred me to Tristan and His 1San Diego Homes Team. I met with Tristan, I was impressed with his business practices, His No Nonsense approach, and hired him on the spot. He immediately got to work, Planning the sequence of events that was most beneficial to my Family’s needs. Tristan Negotiated a great deal on our Bay Park Home purchase, and as an added benefit, His team was able to Provide Mortgage Lending options as well. He provided us with a Loan Pre-approval within hours and was able to write an offer the same day. This went a long way in convincing the Sellers how serious of Buyers we were. Tristan shared with us ways of making our offer stronger without increasing our offer price and it worked. At the same time this was occurring, Tristan and His Team were preparing my Clairemont Home for sale. Because our Home was built in the 1950’s, Tristan Recommended a Pre-Sale Home Inspection. This was well worth the money. This exposed a few issues that were easily resolved before we went to market. Tristan made this inspection available to the potential buyers as to demonstrate the excellent condition our house was in. Our Home was only on the market for 3 days before the offers started rolling in. We accepted a Full Price offer 4 days in, and enjoyed an easy sale. All parties walked away happy and the buyers got a great home for their family. I highly recommend Tristan and the his 1 San Diego Homes Team, I couldn’t be happier with their performance. Tristan regularly stays in touch with us and now I feel I have someone in my corner to advise me on everything Real Estate.

“Professional, Knowledgable, Forthright and Responsive. Tristan was great to work with throughout our housing search. Whether you are purchasing your first home, like myself or your fifth home, you want a real estate agent that exemplifies all of the qualities i mentioned above, which Tristan does. As I mentioned, Tristan helped me purchase my first home, which was a short sale in Downtown. With any short sale the process was long and grueling, but in the end Tristan was able to get the job done. And throughout the process he was very responsive and realistic, never setting false expectations, which kept me grounded. Not only did Tristan represent me as the seller he also processed my loan, which made the transaction a one stop shop. When I am back in the market for a relocate or second home, I am definitely going back to Tristan. And if you looking for an Agent, I highly recommend using Tristan.”

“Tristan's knowledge and expertise on the broker and agent side of things make him a true diamond in the rough. There is no back and forth between agent and broker with Tristan because he is a professional wealth of knowledge in all-things real estate. We were very fortunate to have ran into Tristan after months of searching while working with someone else. All of that seasoning helped us appreciate the true value of Tristan's services. We went from simply being assisted in trying to find a home, to not only finding a home with Tristan, but also determining a plan of action for future savings through a better loan down the road. This spoke volumes to us about Tristan's true interest in us as his clients because instead of just making the sale and moving on, he has the vision to put us in a better financial situation through a better loan down the road.
