Client Testimonials

"Jesse is not only extremely knowledgeable about the local market, he also has a tremendous amount of enthusiasm for real estate...and life! I never felt like Jesse was selling us. He only guided us, always concerned about our needs, and he always kept it real. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Jesse and highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fun, enlightening home buying experience!"

"Jesse is amazing! He helped me buy my first place and guided my through the whole process. His experience helped guide me away from properties that weren't quite right for me and toward my home. I wouldn't use anyone else."

Travis Smith


“Jesse is an outstanding agent. Our company has used him on multiple listings. He is great to work with, and he brings very good judgment and professionalism to every situation. We highly recommend Jesse Brossa.”

Kristopher Woolley


“We were a little nervous about putting our home up on the market in Laguna Beach. Jesse was recommended to us so we interviewed him along with four other realtors. We felt extremely comfortable with Jesse from the beginning. He was very knowledgeable and honest. He listed our house and put a beautiful profile of it online. We live out of state and Jesse was very thorough with communicating to us. Jesse collected information on prospective clients, showed our home and gave us feedback on each showing. We will definitely use him for any future real estate needs!”

Annemarie & John Hopkins


"Jesse is a true pleasure to work with! He was a friend long before he became our Real Estate Agent, so it was not a difficult choice to make. Jesse's both professional and completely personable. He brings a wealth of valuable experience and he's easily one of the kindest people I've ever met. He is highly responsive, helpful, patient and followed through with each inquiry, concern and question we had during our condo sale and simultaneous home purchase. I recommend him through and through!"

Lisa Matro


"I had the opportunity to work with Jesse during the purchase of our home in Robinson Ranch. We were a contingent buyer and needed to sell our condo prior to buying our house. As all of you know, purchasing a home is very stressful. When deciding on a Real Estate agent you look for someone you can trust, someone you can depend on and has your best interest in this large transaction. Jesse has all these attributes and made the process much easier and enjoyable. I would highly recommend Jesse for any of your Real Estate needs!"

Ron Matro


"I've had the opportunity to work with Jesse on a few different projects over the years and I cannot recommend him enough! One of the things that really stands out to me when working with Jesse is his focus and dedication. He is "all in" when he's with you, he isn't checking his texts or taking calls, he's really listening to you and he's interested in what you're saying. What I appreciate most about Jesse is that he is honest, has integrity and that he does what is fair and right. He is very responsive to your needs and is hard working. You won't be disappointed when you work with him!"

"Dear Jesse -

How lucky we were to come across your easily navigable, highly informative handsome home search website. The moment I phoned you, I knew you were different from the other agents because you were so much more positive and answered my questions: it was your 'can-do' attitude that impressed me.

People may find it difficult to believe, but I found our dream retirement home in only one morning because of your being so well organized. You did not push the not-so-nice homes on me. The last home you showed me was not even on my list of 'want to see' but it turned out to be our dream home in the end, so I am grateful that you thought this home would suit us.

You kept your eye on the ball throughout the process. You negotiated an excellent price for us and worked well with the sellers' agent to get all the paperwork done so smoothly (even though we live in Europe) that we're still pinching ourselves. We will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a house in the OC!"

Sincerely yours,



"Dear Jesse -

We're nearly settled at our new home and I wanted to drop you a note to say thanks. I've been meaning to do it for awhile, but have been crushed at work, so please accept my apology for not being able to get to it sooner.

First the house is great, everything we were hoping for. And we would not have gotten it without you.

Some specifics - from when we started looking on line you were super responsive to all of Kristie's emails and made us feel comfortable that you'd show us what we wanted to see, not what you wanted to sell - including foreclosures.

You took me out on countless trips to look at houses and were not afraid to offer some of the low ball numbers I threw out at owners. You patiently wrote up the deal at Veranda only to have Kristie veto it, yet you never wavered in your dedication.

When we ultimately decided to lease, you found the place and negotiated the deal for a shorter term which we needed. All the while you kept taking Kristie out to view properties for sale and two weeks later we were in escrow at Wayside!

Additionally, you worked within the constraints of my relo company, which I know was challenging at times.

I've worked with a lot of realtors through my career as I've moved a lot. Simply put, you're the best. You're high energy and fun coupled with being knowledgeable and dedicated.

Thanks for everything. You're welcome at our house for a beer any time!"

"My wife and I, like many families in Southern California, found ourselves needing to sell our house at the worst of times. We approached Jesse Brossa after we discovered his impressive website, Jesse was professional from the start, providing us with a full presentation of his services and a detailed evaluation of the value of our house based on solid comparable sales. We were chagrined to see how low prices had dropped, and Jesse encouraged us to meet with other realtors to get their opinions, even giving us the contact information for several high-visibility agents in the area. We met with others, but none matched his professionalism, honesty, and efficiency. Within days of agreeing to list with him, he had arranged for some spectacular photography of our house, written a brilliant description of the property, and combined it into a four-page brochure that was so nice that we hardly recognized it as our home! He also created a matching custom website tied to his own site that drew substantial traffic.

The results were immediate. In an absolutely dead real estate market, we had six showings in the first week and an offer in hand after only two weeks. Of course, that was not the end of the story. There were intense price negotiations, a home inspection that lead to a foundation inspection, an escrow date that was pushed out half a dozen times by the buyer, and numerous other challenges that many sellers in this market are becoming familiar with. Throughout the entire process, Jesse's tireless dedication to representing us and protecting our interests never wavered, and he successfully shepherded the sale to completion. In the end, we closed our sale for 95% of our asking price within three months of retaining Jesse's services (almost all of this time was due post-offer complications created by the buyers). This was in a neighborhood where houses were routinely on the market for more than twelve months without an offer and where the most recent comps had sold more than 20% below our asking price!

In summary, Jesse Brossa made a very difficult situation much easier and more successful than we could possibly have expected, especially in the most challenging real estate market in more than a decade. His honesty and professionalism protected us every step of the way. We recommend him without reservation. You cannot buy better representation."

"Dear Jesse:

It is hard to believe over a year has passed since I was fortunate to find your website while still living in Manhattan, but researching a relocation to Orange County. Another terrific recent experience with you on home #2 motivated me to express my gratitude formally.

Your website is well organized, friendly to navigate, and beautifully designed. It became my main (really only) source of searching available homes via the Internet. I appreciated being able to get into the home search quickly and easily, without out having to "sign up" or "register." At the point I was saving listings, having to only provide my email address and a password was convenient. Your website is an incredibly useful tool - well done.

Working with you was a genuine pleasure. Your preparation and follow through was outstanding both times we worked together. It was particularly useful when I was still on the East coast. I appreciated your extremely professional, yet casual, easy going style. It was comforting to work with someone as intelligent and interesting as you are, but the humor and laughs made for a winning combination. I had complete confidence you were handling everything expertly. You are without a doubt the most impressive Realtor I have worked with over many years of home searches in several different states.

Thanks you for the stellar service, Jesse. It was all but effortless both last year and most recently. I will enthusiastically recommend you every chance I get. I also will look forward to working with you again in the future."

"Dear Jesse,

As I reach the end of the renovations, I wanted to write to you and thank you for all of your hard work in helping me find a beautiful home. I knew it would be a smooth process due to your calm and level-headed approach to our search. At the beginning of the process, I wasn't quite sure what I was looking for in a home, but your patient guidance and insightful advice helped me to decide what I wanted and, more importantly, what I needed from my new home. At each house we looked at, you were quick to point out features, both positive and negative, that I would have missed on my own; assisting me in narrowing down my choices until I decided on my beautiful beach style house in the Palisades.

During the escrow period you carefully explained each step of the process, so I understood the importance of each inspection that was completed, and each contract that was signed. By the end of the 30 day process, I owned my dream home and never had to deal with any unpleasant surprises because of your deliberate and diligent work.

I would highly recommend your services to anyone in search of a new home as your conscientious attitude and cheerful demeanor made a seemingly arduous process both enjoyable and almost effortless.

Thank you again!"

Sincerely yours,

Seth Mitchell


"Jesse Brossa represented us in our recent acquisition of a vacation home in Palm Desert. We were impressed with Jesse's integrity and found him to be extraordinarily responsive to our needs. He found the home we wanted and negotiated an excellent price. I will not hesitate to use Jesse again."

"To whom it may concern,

I am writing this letter of recommendation to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for Jesse Brossa's services as my agent during the selling of my house.

Jesse is with no doubt the best agent I have worked with. His experience, knowledge, patience, friendliness and understanding of his customer's needs are invaluable. Jesse made the whole process very easy for me. The selling, negotiations and escrow went fast and efficient. Also keeping in touch throughout the process were very professional and friendly.

I am sure that without Jesse's help I would have not sold my house as fast and at the price I asked for. I would recommend Jesse to all my family, friends and anyone who would ask me. I don't have enough words to express my gratitude for all the time Jesse spent to help me sell my house."

Many thanks to Jesse and his family.

Sincerely, Jacqueline London"


"Dear Jesse,

I just wanted to take a moment to extend my sincere thanks for your support and services enabling my family's cross-country move. Texas to California is no easy stretch yet you managed to make the entire process in understanding the Orange County market and finding the absolute best home for my family extremely easy.

The housing market has certainly been in turmoil however your deep expertise and professional approach guided us through the many hurdles we faced. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome and am excited to raise my two young girls in this wonderful area.

Thank you again."

"To Whom It May Concern:

The following letter is to express my husband and my sincere appreciation to our real estate agent Mr. Jesse Brossa from Surterre Properties for his services. His professionalism, honesty and integrity resulted in the successful listing and rental of our two-bedroom condominium in Quail Hill - Irvine. Eric and I feel strongly that Mr. Brossa - through his attention-to-detail and professional demeanor helped secure outstanding tenants for our unit.

His dedication and willingness to go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate our busy schedules and relocation efforts exceeded our expectations as landlords, in which he worked tirelessly to coordinate rental logics on our behalf. This was remarkable given the circumstances wherein my husband I moved across country. Mr. Brossa's attention-to-detail, consistent communications and thoroughness put our minds and fostered a trust-based relationship. During such time, there is no one else (i.e., besides local and immediate family members) except Mr. Brossa with whom we would have felt comfortable turning over such important responsibilities.

As individuals who rely heavily on word-of-mouth referrals, we would honestly recommend Mr. Brossa for worry-free professional real estate services."

Best Regards,

Simone and Eric Rogers



...we both really enjoyed the time we spent with you. You're a first class broker and it is clear that you enjoy what you do..."

Take care,

"To Whom This May Concern,

Jesse Brossa is a stellar real estate agent. His knowledge of the market, hard work and diligence, and his good communication skills are outstanding qualities that produce excellent results for his clients.

Jesse sold our home in the summer, just four months after it was listed. Even though we faced a short sale up the street and a foreclosure directly across the street, Jesse and his team closed our deal with a full price offer. His careful research and support documentation helped us get a sales price at several hundred thousand dollars more than competing realtors in our area were willing to price our home.

Jesse produced an excellent marketing plan with a high quality brochure, a video, professional photography and our home's own website. Additionally, he was resourceful, marketing our home to international communities. He or one of his team members was always present every time we had a showing. Jesse went the extra mile that it took to get the best price for our home in a difficult market.

Jesse is an honest man who has integrity, a quick wit and an intelligent mind. He was a joy to work with. We give him our highest endorsement."

"Dear Jesse,

We are settling into our new house and would like to thank you so much for all your help in making our dream a reality. When we first set out to find an agent specializing in Orange County, we had a list of criteria: someone who really understands the local landscape of Orange County and the nuances between the different cities, someone who has internet presence since we were from another state and wanted to search your website for as much information as possible, and most importantly, someone who can understand our wants and needs and help us find them in a house.

We were relocating from another state which presented many challenges: communication, the amount of time we had to see houses once we were in town, getting a feel for Orange County from out of state to name a few. Through your website, we felt we got to know the area pretty well. Not only did you provide information about the houses (which we can get from anywhere) but also all the pertinent information that gives you an idea of what it'd be like to live in that neighborhood/city (this information we found very hard to come by when searching other agents' web sites). To this day, I still go to your website to find local information even though we are now locals living in Orange County.

You also went above and beyond in visiting the houses yourself and getting us additional pictures/information that saved us time in narrowing down our list of houses to see once we came in town. You did the leg work for us knowing our family situation and our wishes.

I think it's not hard to hear the hard requirements (price, number of bedrooms, etc.) but it is a seasoned professional who can go beyond that and understand the soft requirements that sometimes come up in conversations (a certain feel that we are looking for in a neighborhood, things we love to do as a family and how they translate to how we live and therefore the location and house to name a couple). We felt you really understood us and therefore guided us in the right direction.

Thinking back, we could've bought a different house and it would've happened quicker but because you were doing right by us, you guided us away from houses that weren't right for us. It is only now that we are in our dream house that we know the other houses we came close to buying weren't right for us. And you were right there advising us and guiding us based on your understanding of our needs. And you guided us right. We are very happy in our house and are very thankful for all your help in making our dream a reality. Your professionalism, going above and beyond attitude, and honesty is what makes you a great advisor/agent and we would highly recommend you to anyone who is looking to move to Orange County.

It was a pleasure getting to know you and working with you. Thank you for all your hard work and help! We have gained a great agent and a friend in this process."
