In 2014, I began toying with the idea of selling my home of 25 years. It was a beautiful neighborhood filled with wonderful friends and memories making the commitment to sell gut wrenching. But after an initial consultation with Brad, who laid out all of my options to become market-ready, I was ready to sell. Brad provided me with expert counseling on the realities of the marketplace and what I needed to do to prepare my home for sale. I never looked back and never stressed out. Under Brad's supervision, we made fairly major upgrades and repairs to the house and created a home that was appealing to the market. His pricing strategies were beyond brilliant: we sold ABOVE the asking price.
Brad and Lauren held my hand through escrow, advised me on everything from termite services to moving companies, all of which were great and made the move seamless.
I would urge anyone looking to buy or sell to contact Seaman and Company. They are the most knowledgeable and pro-active realtors in the area. I can say that with confidence after watching many other neighbors attempt to sell without Brad and Lauren's assistance: those neighbors missed out on savvy pricing, expert guidance and ended up having very stressful experiences.
We can't thank Brad and his team enough for helping us buy our new home! The Seaman team went above and beyond to make the overwhelming process of homebuying as seamless as possible. Brad listened to what we wanted, didn't push us out of our comfort zone, and gave sound advice for our purchase.They communicated with us the entire time and answered every question that we had along the way. Brad would answer calls and emails late into the evening and even when he was out of the country! Debbie met with us several times for our walkthroughs and inspections and was so helpful throughout the process. They were amazing to work with and I will definitely refer them to anyone looking for a realtor and team that they can trust.
Brad Seaman recently negotiated the purchase of my new home in Fairbanks Ranch. Brad was professional, intelligent, and an excellent communicator. He proved to be extremely experienced and skilled in the luxury and short sale spaces. Brad knew the San Diego market, as well as The Ranch in detail. He was on a mission to successfully complete a very complicated, multi-million dollar, short sale transaction and got the job done! Best of all, he was very resourceful and quickly identified solutions to problems that he did not specifically know the answers to. This was the trait I admired most. The art of the deal is most definitely Brad's forte.
Lauren, Brad and their team are the best!! They go above and beyond to take care of their clients. They set up custom searches for us, and we found a house on Sunday morning we liked. Debbie met us later that day to show us the home, which ended up being the one! They helped us find a perfect home for our needs, and even after we got the keys they have been checking in with us and helping us remodel. They become friends with clients, which was nice having the biggest financial decision in our life. I highly recommend the Seaman team to anyone considering real estate in San Diego. You won't regret it!!
As a seasoned investor, I know how difficult it is to find a great agent. I have seen them all, from distracted to unknowledgeable. Brad has been a true asset to my investment and foreclosure business. His focus, drive, and experience has compelled me to bring him on as a buyer and seller for all of my properties. Brad goes above and beyond to coordinate everything from preparing for market to effectively listing and selling my homes. To date, I have bought and sold over 50 homes with Brad and can't imagine hiring anyone else.
We cannot give enough praise to Brad and his team at Keller Williams. As first time home buyers, we didn't know the ins and outs of purchasing and they worked with us through each step. Since we were also new to San Diego, we relied heavily on his expertise and were not disappointed. Brad made time to sit with us on a Saturday and really listened to what was important to us in a home. He asked questions and helped us determine our top priorities to narrow our search.
With a baby on the way, we let Brad know that we had a tight time frame to find our home and would have to act fast. His team explained what financial documentation we would need to provide so that we would be able to make a proper offer when the time came. His entire team was very quick to respond to our questions and requests by email/phone, which made the process less stressful. Furthermore, they were flexible with our schedules of availability. Debbie on his team showed great patience and persistence as we looked at multiple properties, many on the first day of being listed. We felt they were just as determined as we were to quickly find a home that would suit our family well.
Once we found a home we loved and our offer was accepted, Brad and team walked us through the inspection and final closing details. We are extremely satisfied with the service and professionalism we received when buying with Brad Seaman. He went above and beyond during our search and purchase and we are thrilled with our new home. Highly recommended!!
It's really easy to feel lucky in during a real estate transaction when everything seems to be working out in your favor, however, when you step back you realize that having a great agent who is working the process behind the scenes is really where that "luck" is coming from. That was the experience that we had with Brad and Lauren Seaman when moved up to our new home when our family grew.
From working with a challenging buyer in our home sale, to getting us in for a sneak peak when we spotted our potential dream home, Brad put the work in and his experience made for a seamless transition from our experience, though I am sure that Brad had to work very hard behind the scenes to make it seem that way.
Our transaction had many difficult aspects including negotiating a lease-back, little flexibility for viewings due to our new baby, and challenging sellers in the middle of a divorce, the Seaman's navigated the turbulent waters like seasoned professionals confident in their experience to get us through to clear sailing. And let's face it, we had very specific visions for what our new home would be and Brad was extremely patient through the many viewings and learned more and more about our perfect home with each visit (and probably new better what we were looking for than we did in the end).
We couldn't have been happier with our experience with the Seaman's and I can't say enough about how great they are.
I can't say enough about Brad and Lauren. I felt so comfortable with them and they took me through a process that could have ended up being stressful but instead I felt like I had two new friends and actually had a great time selling my home. I could not of asked for a better experience. I am not a first time seller, and this was just an experience everyone should experience while selling a house. Love, love, love these guys
Brad & Lauren Seaman are truly a first-class real estate team! My husband and I were so impressed with their expertise, diligence, and professionalism. From the moment we met them, they confidently laid out a plan to help coordinate the process of selling our former home and purchasing our dream home. Throughout a difficult escrow, they went above and beyond to make sure that no detail was overlooked and that all of our needs were met. We highly recommend that you contact Seaman & Company Real Estate Services for all of your real estate needs.

We were first time home buyers and not sure how the process would be...it seemed a bit daunting before we plunged in. Brad and his entire team made this a very positive experience! Would highly recommend!
From our first meeting, I knew our real estate needs would be met. Brad and his team exceeded all of our expectations. We were selling our first home to purchase our forever home. Brad had all the contacts for repairs, and upgrades to ready our home for the market. At times, the stress involved was high; but, Brad, Donna, and Debbie put us at ease, and they worked efficiently to get it all done. Our sale closed just 2 days prior to our purchase! The timing was perfect. We highly recommend the Seaman Team! A million thanks!
Brad and Lauren and their team really exemplify real estate greatness! They were there for us through the whole process and made it easy and painless! When things got difficult Brad and Lauren were there to fix them and we came out on top! Everyone we know will be using them for any buying and selling needs from now on! No one else will do!
We had a great experience with Brad! He helped us sell my childhood home after my Mom passed away in San Diego. We live in Los Angeles so once the house was cleaned out we returned home and worked with Brad remotely. It was important for us to find someone we could trust to carry out our wishes and work with the contractor we hired. He did that and more. His taste level, professionalism and friendly manner made a very sad and stressful situation move along smoothly and the end result was truly wonderful! I highly recommend Brad and his team.
We picked a really bad time to buy a house and almost gave up, but Brad kept encouraging us, and we ended up finding the perfect home with their help. We looked at a TON of houses, and Brad and his team were always available to take us and help us weigh the pros and cons of each. Brad is very knowledgeable about house buying, selling, renovations, mortgages, etc, which was very helpful throughout the process. I also appreciate that he didn't push us to buy; he encouraged us to wait for the right home, which ended up being a fixer upper. We were kind of overwhelmed by the amount of work to do, but Brad hooked us up with some great vendors and even helped us through it for a few weeks. The house really ended up being exactly what we wanted! Brad and his team were very patient with us through a long house-buying process, and we are very glad to have had them.
I cannot say enough good things about the Seaman Team. I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! We recently renovated and sold our town home while simultaneously buying a larger, single family home. While there were a couple very minor bumps in the road (at no fault of the Seaman Team), we felt well taken care of and in good hands throughout the entire process. Brad and Donna did a wonderful job communicating with us about what was happening and what was needed of us. They made the entire process feel very streamlined and effortless. Brad also had several great recommendations for contractors that we used for the renovation of our town home and for repairs on our new purchase. We are extremely happy with the results of our sale and new purchase and would recommend Brad, Lauren, Debbie and Donna to anyone looking for amazing real estate professionals. We would not hesitate to use them again in the future. Thank you, thank you Seaman Team!
Brad Seaman was the best possible realtor for my wife and I as first time home buyers. From our first meeting Brad was friendly, professional, and responsive. We hadn't even made the official decision to buy a house when we started looking for properties, but we had an idea of location and budget. Brad took our preferences and showed us five houses in three different communities: all five fit our requirements and were appealing as well. He helped us weigh the pros and cons at each open house without being overbearing or trying to make a decision for us.
After that first day we felt comfortable making an offer on a house he showed us, but after a frustrating, drawn-out series of negotiations with the seller the offer fell through. Brad was by our side through every step of the way, responding to our questions and need for advice even while on vacation overseas. For our procedural needs while he was gone, Brad entrusted us to Randy Jones who was also a ready and willing aid. My wife and I also spent a good amount of time out of town (in separate locations) but Brad was able to flex for us by ensuring all necessary documents were available for digital signature.
When our first offer fell through we immediately went ahead with an offer on an identical property. Brad worked closely with the listing agent, kept on top of deadlines and buyer requirements, talked us through the plethora of documents, and we smoothly closed on time within 30 days of the initial offer. He met us at the house for the home inspection and after the property was essentially secured met us there again to walk through with a general contractor to get a bid on work we wanted done. As an experienced realtor and as someone who has done multiple house renovations, Brad was able to give us sage advice from paint to flooring when it came to updating the house.
Overall, our first home-buying experience was better than we could have hoped for and it was directly because of Brad and the competent people with whom he surrounds himself. If we end up selling our home down the road, Brad will be our first choice of listing agents.
We bought our home through the Seaman Team in March of this year and the Seaman Team made it so easy for us! It was my husband and I's first time buying a house so we had no clue what we were doing. Brad was awesome by working with us months in advance while we were stationed overseas at the time. He went over the process with us, and made it so simple for us. When we first moved here and were starting to look at houses we were without a car, Debbie was sweet enough to use her personal car and show us around to look at houses. She went into great detail breaking everything down about each house for my husband and I. She answered all of our questions and went above and beyond to help us out. I knew that at any point of the buying process Brad, Debbie, and Donna were just a phone call or email away which was very comforting.
I've used the Seaman Group on two transactions (one sale and one purchase) and have been impressed with their above-and-beyond service. Brad is an excellent strategist and can quickly assess a property's value, ideal pricing in the current market, and even read or predict buyer/seller's responses to offers and counter offers. When he was representing us for our sale, he was able to generate multiple offers getting us well above our asking price. And this was back in 2014 before the market was really heating up. When we came back to him two years later to buy a property his team skillfully coordinated a resolution to a sticky issue that arose with title insurance, the lender, and an overly-emotional seller. If you want a highly experienced team that will have your back in even the most difficult transaction, Brad's your man.
Brad Seaman and his team has to be the most straightforward, honest and ethical real estate professionals I have ever met!! We had contemplated downsizing earlier this year and had sought out Brad for some advice. After taking the time to really understand our immediate and long term goals, collectively Brad assisted my husband and I in concluding that we were not quite ready to downsize just yet. Instead, Brad gave us some suggestions for "minor" home improvements that not only will benefit us in the long run by increasing the value of our home when we do decide to sell....but, allow us to enjoy the upgrades while still living in the house!! There are so many real estate agents out there that are simply out "to make the sale" which is why it was so refreshing to deal with such consonant professional that has his clients best interests at heart. If you are looking for an agent you can trust....look no further than Seaman & Company Real Estate Services!!!
My wife and I are first time home buyers. We are also fairly new to the San Diego area. Brad Seaman is the person you would want on your side when looking for a home. His knowledge of the different cities within San Diego County is very extensive. My wife and I were very impressed by his detailed analysis of the home prices within the local region and the cost of what you get per square footage really provided us a clear view as to what type and size of house we were looking for. He even pointed out the littlest things that home buyers would miss to ensure that we found the perfect place for us. He is very professional, personable, and easy to work with. I would say that we found our dream home and we thank Brad for all the work he did to help us get into this new home. I would recommend Brad and his company's services without question. He will help you get into you dream house as he did for us.

I have now worked with Brad & Lauren (and their amazing team) through two separate home purchases. Every single small detail is taken care of and they communicate through every single step of the process. There are good realty teams and there are bad ones, but I classify the Seaman team as exceptional. You can't go wrong working with them.
Thank you Brad and Lauren. If we could give you more than five stars, we would. It is gratifying to meet real estate agents who are dedicated to doing a great job. The service and personal attention we received from Brad and Lauren was exceptional. They are truly a high caliber professional and Brad's knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that we offered the correct price needed to purchase our home. we were very impressed with the job Brad Seaman and team had done. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Brad & Lauren. Your efforts are sincerely appreciated.

Brad and his team did an amazing job selling our home. Brad took the time a year earlier to give us improvement tips to get our home ready to sell. It's simple.
Do everything Brad says for homework and you will be amazed. We sold our home in 4 days with multiple offers over asking price. The commuication and commitment were first class every step of the transaction.
Buying a home for the first time is pretty overwhelming, with terms you don't really understand, tons of paperwork that you really should read but you just "glace at it" because there's millions of pages, numbers, costs and percents OH MY! BUT...... never fear Brad Seaman is awesome! He is understanding, confident, and professional. He is willing to answer questions no matter how big or small, which is nice when are a first time buyer and there's a lot of unknowns.
When Brad and I were looking for a condo for me we looked at dozens. There were one or two that I thought I really liked, but being a first time buyer I knew little about properties and HOA's. Brad wouldn't let me settle on anything but the best. When we finally found my place Brad told me what a great purchase it would be and I've never been happier and more proud to call a place home.
Brad doesn't just help you find a place to call home, he can hook you up with people to make it your dream home for a reasonable price for quality work. He really doesn't just stop at the sale he follows through till everything is prefect. He will check in to make sure that the people he recomended have done every light switch and every appliance in perfectly.
There are many kind, and amazing things I could say about my Realtor Brad Seaman. But all you need to know is that he is the best. He works truly hard for his clients. If I were ever to buy/sell again I would most certainly go to him. and I would recommend him to all family and friends.
We had been looking for a real estate agent for a long time when we met Brad and Lauren at their Open House in Sabre Springs. We immediately felt comfortable with both of them and hired them to work with us. Throughout the whole process Brad was very professional, patient, reliable, resourceful, timely, and so easy to work with. He really took the time to understand what we were looking for and patiently answered all our questions....and we had lots and lots of questions!
Even after our purchase was completed, he put us in touch with people who could assist us with our home remodel. We really appreciate all his expertise, resources, and willingness to help. We would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. We will definitely refer Brad and Lauren to any of our friends or family members who are looking to purchase or sell a house. Thank you, Brad, for all your hard work!! We are so happy with our new house!! :):)
Brad and Lauren are amazing. They sold our home in less time for more money than we even imagined. A very trustworthy and Fun team to work with.
I am so relieved our favorite painter referred us to Brad and Lauren. I knew we needed help to get our house ready for sale and I was overwhelmed. Our first meeting I knew they were my saving grace. Matt wasn't as easily convinced, and now signs their praises. Every step along the way Brad worked to gain his trust and remembered the little things that were so important to each of us. Our house needed serious help. Their confidence gave us hope that we could put their expertise to work and with the help of their contacts we could make our house gorgeous and still live our busy lives while Brad and Lauren tended to the details.... and they were spot on with their estimates. They knew what was worth fixing and what buyers were looking for. We invested in the cleaning, repair and restoration to make our house the showcase it could be! When the pictures were published We were proud! We had multiple offers in the first days of showing that were above list and cash buyers! Both of us have work that requires much of our attention and I travel 80%, so communicating with us is no easy task. Between Randy, Brad and Lauren, we always knew what was going on. Thank goodness for Docusign as we closed on our house while sailing home from Catalina! I trust Brad and Laura to give expert advice and follow thru on their promises. We can't thank them enough. Do yourself a favor and let them work with their team of experts to turn your house into someone's new dream home!

Somewhere on our boat...
Brad Seaman (and Team) were the best at helping me find my dream home! I bought and sold a home at the same time, which can be a very stressful and tricky situation. They walked me through the whole process every single step of the way and even the littlest of details were not missed. They are not only knowledgeable about the industry, market, and pricing, but they really care about helping clients get what they want no matter what. I really enjoyed working with them, would use them again in a heartbeat, and would highly recommend them for both buying and selling a home.
Brad, Lauren and their team are amazing! My husband and I were starting to look for a home in Poway last Oct. but we weren't quite ready to sell our condo and buy a new house at that time. Brad and Lauren didn't pressure us to sell and buy, they told us that when we were ready, they'd be ready to help us. We asked them to show us a few homes before the holidays, which they were more than willing to do. When we were ready (after the new year) we let them know and they hit the ground running. Brad met not only with us but with our lender as well to discuss the best options for us. When we listed our condo Brad recommended to list it in a certain price range to have it sell quickly. Not only did it sell quickly (less than a week) but it sold for $20k over asking price! We were so thrilled! When it came to buying our new home there wasn't a lot on the market, my husband and I were a little disappointed and kind of stressing out about it. Brad went above and beyond and found us a home off market in a great neighborhood in Poway. It had almost everything on our checklist which was awesome! We got it for a great price which left us money to do some remodeling before moving in. Brad also referred us to a great contractor which made the process seamless and pretty stress free. I would definitely recommend Brad and Lauren if you are looking to buy, sell or both. They are great people who have their client's best interests at heart.
Love This Team!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Brad and Lauren Seaman on our recent condo purchase in Pacific Beach. From our first meeting, it was clear that Brad has a sharp sense of the real estate market in San Diego and a smart approach to looking for properties. He encouraged us to consider areas beyond our target neighborhood but never tried to force us into anything we were uncomfortable with. And in the end, when it became clear that Pacific Beach was the location we hoped to stay in, we felt even more confident in the decision having seen what else was out there.
During our search Brad and Lauren both helped us to navigate listings on our personalized MLS portal and answered all questions promptly. Brad was also available at a moment's notice to get in for showings when new listings came up. This proved crucial to our eventual success as Pacific Beach has a highly competitive market where there is little inventory and, more often than not, multiple offers made on a single property. We did make two offers before our third was accepted, and during all three, Brad was always very realistic and honest about expectations while positioning our offers in the best possible way. On our third and final offer, we were ready to go in higher than the list price but, after speaking to the selling agent, Brad felt confident we could close the deal for less. Ended up saving us about 16k! In short, he displayed a clear understanding of how to work through the challenges of a nuanced seller's market.
We would highly recommend working with this versatile team! Although we live in an area where it can feel impossible to beat out investors and all-cash buyers, Brad and Lauren always made us feel like finding our dream home at the beach was within reach. We're loving our new place and, post-closing, have still enjoyed feedback and check-in's from the Seaman's. Not to mention a helpful moving emergency kit and a few very nice housewarming gifts. You can't go wrong with Brad and Lauren!
The seaman team is beyond wonderful! Brad recently helped me sell the home that I purchased through them 2 years ago. Brad and his wife were very hands on and handled the transaction effortlessly it seemed. We sold the property for 16k over our asking price! The best part about them is even after we had our property sold they worked with me and my realtor in an out of area transaction that wasnt in their job description at all. My wife and I are very pleased with the services rendered and if we ever move back to the san diego are brad will be our first call.
We recently sold our CMR home and Brad made the process extremely easy. We listened and implemented his ideas prior to the sale and we believe this helped us get top dollar for our home. He also listened to our requirements and definitely worked with us to get the final deal done. If you are looking for a great sales team, I would highly suggest the Seaman team.
Brad & Lauren are great at what they do. They recently helped me on a transaction, were always available, even sometimes as late as 11pm! It's very hard to find someone regardless of business who is very customer service driven; but Brad & Lauren really put forth the extra effort. If you're looking to buy or sell a home in the San Diego area, give them a call, it is in your best interest!
I cannot say enough about Brad and his team. He helped me with the sale of my grandmothers house after her passing and as a first time seller, he helped me through the entire process and I could not be happier!
Thanks to Brad and Lauren and everyone else involved!
I had gone through 2 realtors when purchasing my first home before i got in touch with Brad. He is very professional and extremely knowledgeable. As a first time buyer and using my VA loan i had a very limited idea as to what i was getting myself into. Brad broke down every step of the process and the time frame that it would require. I could not be more satisfied with the property i purchased and whenever it comes time to buy or sell again i have no need to look for another realtor. I will always use Brad as my realtor.
Brad is an A+ REALTOR FOR A "TYPE A" PERSONALITY! I am so thrilled to be able to write a review for Brad Seaman and his fantastic team at Keller Williams. My family was transferred and relocating across the country from San Diego to Virginia. We needed a dedicated professional to handle our short sale needs. Brad advised us at to the pros and cons of the entire process. In fact, we didn't even have to miss a payment. We closed in record time and Brad was successful in making this process as stress free as I could have hoped for. The honesty and integrity with which Brad handled our sale is beyond comparison. Brad was available to assist our family with a multitude of questions and concerns. He left no stones unturned and no questions unanswered!
I am an extremely "type A" person and Brad kept me stress free and happy.
Words almost can't describe what a lengthy and stressful transaction Brad helped my partner Tiffany and I through, but I'll try. I was referred to Brad by a mutual acquaintance and I'm so glad it happened. Brad helped us find a house in San Diego. I thought of some nice areas that we were familiar with in our price point. After looking for a while Brad's knowledge of the entire San Diego area brought us to a new area that we actually really liked geographically and would have never thought of. We ended up finding a great house with way more bang for the buck with great reselling features we originally didn't even think of. Then a big issue with closing the deal came up but Brad worked with the seller and with his awesome real estate transaction skill set, he was able to keep everyone calm and moving forward toward the goal of getting the house sold to make the seller happy and keeping us as the buyer as we loved the house more and more as we pictured it as ours. As the days passed everything could have fallen apart a few times but again, Brad had some great out-of-the-box ideas to get us all through the very peculiar situation. In the end, we got the deal done and we got the house! We can't be more happy and we are very grateful to Brad as I truly feel if I had the average agent, we'd still be looking for a home and feeling like we missed out on this one that we love. So thank you Brad for your diligence, easy going attitude, and real estate smarts to help Tiffany and I get a great home in a new great city for us!
We just bought our house through Brad, and man were we pleased! As first time homeowners we were very nervous, but he made it easy for us. He explained everything to help us feel more comfortable with the process, which is pretty complicated here in California. ;) We just moved here from Virginia on military orders and we needed a house quickly. He offered ideas on areas to live based on our budget and needs. After only speaking to him once, he was spot on with the houses he showed us. We found our home within a week and began the process of buying. His knowledge and expertise helped us save 15% on the final price! I am so thankful that we chose Brad and his associates to help us find our home. They were AWESOME!!!

I wholeheartedly believe in referring those who do stellar work and provide impeccable service. Brad Seaman is one of those people.
My house in Rancho Bernardo sold in less than a week with multiple offers, while I was away in New Jersey for a family trip. Brad and I kept in close contact the whole time, despite the time difference. We reviewed all of the offers when I returned home, analyzed each one and accepted the best one for our situation. He kept me abreast of things each step of the way and continues to do so as we go through escrow and the final closing.
He also helped me with the purchase of my new home! His buyer's agent, Debbie, took me to see 51 homes over the course of several months! If Debbie was away, Brad was there to show me homes when I needed him. Not once did I feel pressure to buy a home. We looked in many different areas and they both took the time to point out pros and cons in each area and every single home we viewed! When it was time to make offers and schedule inspections, Lauren was there to step in when needed. I was never wondering what was happening, when was a document going to arrive...things were constantly moving in the right direction. This is not normal service. Not many agents provide this kind of service, with so much attention to detail.
Brad knows exactly what is going on with the lenders, the escrow companies, the title companies, the inspectors, the appraisals, and the other agents involved on the other side of the transaction. He knows precisely the work they've done, how they operate, their experience and he leads the whole process accordingly.
If you are reading this review, pick up the phone and give Brad a call. It will not be a waste of your time. You will get value from the very beginning.
Brad & Lauren helped us sell our home in Lakeside and buy a home in Escondido. My wife has moved 8 homes in California over the past 30 years and said this team was far the best she has worked with. They were great! Friendly, professional, helpful, responsive. I'd gladly recommend them to anyone in the area and if we ever get another house, they will be the first ones we call.
