Maryann did an outstanding job selling our Condo! She made the whole process very easy. She tool care of every aspect of the process. It was by far the easiest home sale I've been a part of. She got us the highest price for the condo in our neighborhood. I would definitely recommend to anyone.

Sold a Family Home in Egger Highlands, San Diego
Maryann is so amazing. She really goes above and beyond and we are so grateful we had her sell our home. She communicated with us every step of the way and worked hard to get our home in escrow.

Bought a Condo Home in 2017 - Rancho Carrillo - Carlsbad, CA
She always went above and beyond on every step of our home buying process. She always had a great attitude and no distance was too far and always made enough time for us. We searched in about a 60 mile radius and finally found a really great house.

Sold a Family Home in Escondido and bought a New Property
I've been a client of Maryann's for 18 years now and wouldn't think of leaving
This was my 6th property that I've purchased and I must say each time I find out just how bad (other agents) can be. Maryann makes sure she does whatever it takes to get the deal done!

Client both Bought and Sold
Maryann helped us buy and sell. So great we recommended her to our friends as well. The purchase was very organized and updates provided constantly along the way. Gave great advise and helped us lock up the home we loved most.

"Buying and selling a home is apparently rated one of the most stressful things people have to deal with..."
That being said Maryann Augustine made this experience so stress free and painless. She was such a pleasure to work with. She really knows what she is doing. I've never had anyone work so hard for me in my whole life. I would and will recommend her and her company to all of my friends, my friends friends and anyone else who is looking for a Realtor. At the end of our experience Maryanne was like part of our family. She's seriously the best!
"We were able to sell our house in six days for a great price at a time when the housing market was in the middle of a downswing."
We had recently moved from San Francisco to San Diego and didn't have enough money at the time. We met Maryann in 2000 and were impressed with the way she listened to us to find out what we really wanted in a home. We were clueless about buying a home, as neigher of us had ever been through his before. Maryann spent a lot of time educating us about the home buying process. She helped us with the move and kept in touch with us over the years.
Fast forward to late fall 2005. We now had two children, a dog and two cats. Our 2100 square foot dream house was now way too cramped. After our previous experience, we had no doubt that Maryann and her team were perfect for the tastk. Again, she took the time to explain the home selling process in detail. Maryann gave us great advise about staging our property to make sure it looked it's best for showings. She also helped us take care of some unexpected repairs by referring us to reputable contractors. We had 2 agreessive offers within two days! We feel very lucky to have had Maryann and her team expertise. We were able to sell our house in six days for a great price at a time when the housing market was in the middle of a downswing."

"We had never had any experience with her sales approach and initially were overwhelmed by the response to the marketing before the actual sale took place"
I have been a real estate broker for over 30 years ( I am a retired attorney) and my wife has also worked in real estate with a top national firm. When we decided to sell our 3 bedroom rental hom in Bay Park, we were captivated by the programm being offered by Maryann and her team. We had never had any experience with her sales approach and initially were overwhelmed by the response to the marketing before the actual sale took place. We had people driving by the property in droves whiles we were still preparing the house for the sale. After the contract was signed and throughout the transaction, Maryann and her team professionally handled every detail, including solving an appraisal issue that arose in this difficult mortgage market. We would and have recommended Maryann and her team for any real estate sale you might have"
Another Family Saved... "Maryann and her Team saved us from Foreclosure, relieved us from the financial stress and most important... Maryann, you saved our marriage!"
“We tried to do a loan modification on our home and were approved, but with no principal reduction and our monthly housing payments actually increased instead of going down. And to make things worse, after enduring this process for a whole year, we soon realized we were over $300,000 upside down in our loans vs. value and only days away from foreclosure. We had no idea what to do or where to turn to for help...
We received our Newsletter from Maryann and called her immediately and explore their options. We were able to list our home, find a Buyer, stop the foreclosure and negotiate with our Lenders to approve them for a Short Sale—releasing us from all of our home’s financial liabilities. We were saved from Foreclosure, relieved from the financial stress and most important... Maryann, you saved our marriage! Thank you!"

"It was the most pleasant real estate experience I’ve ever had.”
“My name is Anice and I have recently been in a situation where I needed to sell three townhouses very quickly through a short sale. I needed to ensure that it would happen….I had someone recommend Maryann Augustine at Frontline Realty Group to me. They told me she specialized in Short Sales, so I met with her and signed her up. It’s been an amazing and wonderful experience! She was able to get everyone taken care of with no hassle to me. She got all three foreclosures stopped and postponed. She dealt with the banks, she dealt with the difficult HOA and she dealt with a lot of problems with financing and other difficulties… she got everything taken care of, everyone was paid…the bank was happy and I didn’t have to do anything except for sign papers.
I would absolutely recommend them to anyone in a similar situation… if I have any future real estate needs I will definitely be calling Maryann.
It was the most pleasant real estate experience I’ve ever had.”
"Maryann made us always feel like our interests were most important. "
“We had a condo in San Diego that we were upside down in and could not make our payments. Maryann was able to list our property, find a Buyer and get our 2 lenders to agree to take less money for our loans. Our experience with Maryann and her team at Frontline Realty Group was amazing. She took such good care of us. She was willing to answer any questions, calming our nerves throughout the process. A short sale is such a confusing and nerve-racking experience, but Maryann eased our worries with her incredible knowledge and commitment. She has a dynamic and go-getter personality, which made us always feel like our interests were most important. Maryann and her team stayed in constant communication with us and explained the short-sale process when we became overwhelmed. We always felt like we were their only customers, because they were so accessible and knowledgeable. We would highly recommend Maryann Augustine and her amazing staff to any potential customers.”

"We can now pay our bills on time and breathe so much freer"
"It’s been the best thing that we have done for ourselves in the last ten years business wise. Josephine and I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism and experience in this short sale.
I was extremely concerned how this was going to impact our personal income tax and once again, as you have predicted it had a negligible impact and as a matter of fact we even received our largest refund from the IRS, ever! MaryAnne, we can now pay our bills on time and breathe so much freer.
My only regret is that I did not do this short sale sooner. Because of my stubbornness and trying to do what I thought was the right thing in carrying on “this losing battle”, I cost myself and family hundreds of thousands of dollars.
If I can be of any help or assistance to any of your future clients in regards to short sales, please use my name and have them call me."

"We have now been able to fully move on with our lives – both financially and emotionally."
After a year of sheer stress and discouragement with our initial broker, we met and enlisted you. The result was an almost 180 degree turn in our property sale experience!! Your professionalism, experience, client advocacy and comprehensive service daily placed our hearts and minds at ease to the point that we felt confident enough to proceed with our moving plans out of the area and essentially “leave the rest to you”. Your knowledge of all aspects of the short sale process – buyer, seller, and lender/banks really shined, and it shined from the first day we met you.
When you called us about two months ago to inform us that we had closed escrow, it was like an early Christmas present! Since then, we have further realized just how much of a blessing you and your team have been to our family. We have now been able to fully move on with our lives – both financially and emotionally.
As far as we are concerned, you and your team at Frontline Realty Group are our one and only referral for real estate brokers to friends and family in theSouthernCaliforniaarea. Please feel free to confidently pass on our contact information as a reference to future clients.
With grateful hearts,
Mike and Melanie
"It didn’t cost us a thing- all thanks to Maryann and her team"
We bought a condo in 2004 for $260,000. Fast forward to 2010- some career changes, two kids and one severe economic downturn later, and our condo was now worth about $65,000. Due to impending change of station orders for my military job, we were faced with having to move out of San Diego with massive debt and an unwanted condo hanging over our heads.
Enter Maryann and “Team Hilvers.” We were referred to Maryann through a friend, and immediately she set up a meeting with us to go over our situation, timeline and the options that faced us for a potential short sale. In no time she had a buyer lined up and all the paperwork in line to submit to our lender for a short sale. She and her knowledgeable, professional team were incredibly helpful in showing exactly what they needed from us to make the whole process as smooth and painless as possible.
In less than 60 days start to finish, our lender approved the short sale and we transferred the condo to the new buyer. It felt like a massive weight was lifted off our shoulders, and we were able to complete our move without the added burden of what to do with our now unwanted condo. And it didn’t cost us a thing- all thanks to Maryann and her team. To anyone who is facing a similar situation and needs someone to turn to- you have nothing to lose, and everything to gain, by going to Maryann. We are forever grateful that we did.
