Testimonials

"Mike manages my LaJolla/UTC condo and he is superb. As a non-local owner, he has made my life truly easier in finding tenants and taking care of any issues that arise. He goes the extra mile to do things for me and find solutions for any problems or issues that arise. He is always available by phone or email and always keeps me informed with everything. His website is great for owners as I can log in and see where my property is in terms of financials. I am truly grateful to have Mike manage my condo and would not hesitate to have him manage any future properties."

- Jun Y. (Rental Property Owner, La Jolla, CA)


"Thanks to Mike I can rest easy knowing he is doing a great job. He is very competitive and knowledgeable about California requirements. Property management excellent. Tenants pay on time and are researched well. Give them a try. You won't be sorry."

- Robert T. (Rental Property Owner, El Cajon, CA)


"We own a few rental condos, held in a retirement account, which requires us to use a property manager. Sunny Coast was one of the few SD Management companies that not only returned our call, but treated us like we are an important client. Mike has consistently found us desirable, long-term tenants, and is happy to go the extra mile, like processing some of the extra transactions, documentation required in our situation, without any extra fees or hassles."

"My husband and I were very pleased with the service provided by Farah Tanous. We used Farah's services both when selling our house and buying our new home. Due to the declining housing market, we were very worried about having to do a short sale on our house as the value of our house had gone down since we purchased it. However, once we acquired the services of Farah Tanous, all of our worries disappeared. Farah went above and beyond when working on the sale of our house. She was always available to answer any questions or concerns for us and was ready to assist us no matter what time it was. As we were in a hurry to sell our house, she came to our house late on a Friday night to prepare our listing so that it could be viewed on the MLS website by Saturday morning. She also held an open house during the first week our house was on the market. Farah's hard work resulted in an offer within one week and for the price we needed to get on our house. I would definitely recommend Farah to anyone who wants a quick and successful sale. We were equally pleased with Farah's services when we purchased our new home. Once again, Farah was available to assist us at all times and was happy to take us to see all the houses we were interested in. Once we found the house we wanted, Farah worked hard to make sure it was ours. I cannot say enough good things about Farah, she definitely works hard for you and will not stop until you are happy with the results."

"Farah short sold my property during a stress-full time. I got the short sale approved and my loan charged off without having to pay the lender one dollar from my pocket. Now over a year later, my credit is great and I was able to purchase two cars in my name. i had full confidence in Farah and i knew i was in good hands and she would only do what was in my best interest. Farah is very detail oriented and won't stop until the job gets done."

- Mustafa B. (Rental Property Owner, Eastlake, CA)


"We were very happy that Farah was recommended to us! She really got things done, and was honest about everything! She helped us close on time on our short sale, and did her best all the way to the end! She really is a realtor you can trust, and have confidence in! We appreciate your help and negotiations! Thanks again!

"I know so many people with a real estate license or who claim to be Realtors and said they would "love to help me out" but buying my 1st home was far too big an event to hand over to someone just because I liked them as a person. Farah was highly recommended to me by my friends who used her to sell their home and now I know why. She is the Nordstrom of Real Estate. Her service far exceeded my already high expectations. Even with all of the obstacles that came up during this very stressful process, she handled every issue and kept it a pleasant and exciting experience for me. She used her knowledge and experience to negotiate money back in to my pocket that I wasn't even asking for. Now I have been living in my new home for over 4 months and when I received a disturbing letter regarding defaulted taxes on my home, all it took was an email to Farah asking what I should do. She didn't tell me what to do, she did it for me. She even followed up with me several times to get me to send her the letter so she could take care of it! The issue is resolved and once again I have Farah to thank. She is absolutely wonderful and I recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best service out there."

- Shannon M. (Rental Property Owner, Rancho San Diego, CA.)


"My husband and I are closing on our first home - a short sale - all thanks to Farah. She has been the most amazing buyers' agent from the very beginning! Farah is a hands-on, knowledgeable, fierce negotiator who will fight for you 110%. I know I am in the very best hands with her, and words cannot express my gratitude for all that she has done for us and put up with to make our lives easier through this process. She works with our schedule and almost always answers emails/calls/texts within minutes, no matter what time of day or week. I cannot even tell you how many times Farah has gone above and beyond her duty as a Realtor for my husband and I! She has given sound advice on anything we can come up with. She has recommended contractors, inspectors, carpet cleaners, lenders, plumbers, electricians, etc. Whatever we needed, she knew exactly how to handle it and handled it well. She even scheduled some of those critical appointments for us when we were unavailable. Like I said... Above and beyond! In a short sale, issues that are out of the buyers' control are bound to come up along the way (and boy did they!). Farah dealt with each hiccup quickly and professionally and followed through non-stop until the issue was resolved. We are so glad to have had her in our corner these last few months... We know she will make sure that things get done! If and when we decide to sell our house or move, I will be giving Farah a call for sure. THANK YOU FARAH! <3."

"I can say with absolute certainty that Farah is the absolutely best agent there is! She will fight for you and she win! :) Her communication is excellent and she's available almost 24/7. Farah is very knowledgeable and will never leave any questions unanswered. Even after everything is over, and you have moved into your gorgeous new place, she will still be there to provide assistance! THANK YOU FARAH, WE LOVE YOU!"

"My husband and I were so pleased to have Farah as our agent! We started looking to buy our first home in August. The first agent we had did not work in our best interest and was not proactive enough to make things happen for us. We found Farah and she worked harder and longer hours than anyone we had met. She took us everywhere and made all the phone calls necessary to ensure progress was moving in the right direction. We made 3 offers in total (2 serious and one on a short sale), we got BOTH serious offers approved and are living in the home we really wanted. We made our offers the first week of September and closed on our new home the second week of October. She is no-nonsense and out to make sure you get the home you want to be in that best suits you in every way! We LOVE Farah "Tenacious" Tanous!"

- KS, Murphy (Property Manager, Escondido, CA.)


"I would personally recommend Farah Tanous for any of your real-estate needs. Farah served as our agent during the sale of our home back in 2007 when the market was in decline. Not only did she bring us a buyer within 30 days...she brought us multiple buyers! She is a tireless worker who devotes herself to you - her client - 100%. She has your interest in mind every step of the way; and she is honest and forthright about the purchase/selling process - in other words she is an agent you can trust. I would highly recommend Farah Tanous to anyone thinking of selling or buying a home. You will not find a more dedicated; hard working; knowledgeably; and passionate real-estate agent. She is to put it very simply – "Amazing"."

- TheGeek (Rental Property Owner, La Jolla, CA)


"My husband and I are completely novice in realty world. We faced foreclosure despite our best effort to adjust our loans. Farah made the short sale happen communicating with two different (very difficult) lenders in less than 30 days!! It was very fast and she took care of all the hassle during such a stressful time! With Farah, you will be SAFE! :)"

- Minah and Young (Property Owners, San Diego, CA.)


"Purchasing your first property is a new experience that requires a good agent to walk you through the steps. Farah and Mike Tanous did exactly that. I was really nervous about purchasing my first condo since I was not familiar with the process. Although my transaction involved purchasing a short sale condo, both Mike and Farah made me feel comfortable and walked me through the purchase process step-by-step. Even when I had difficulties with the bank, Mike and Farah worked closely with me and my bank to help close the deal. They exerted a personal approach that kept my best interest at the forefront, which is rare in the real estate industry where agents only think about receiving their commissions. I definitely recommend Sunny Coast Realty to any new or experienced person buying or selling a home."

- Anais A. (Rental Property Owner, North Park, CA.)


"Because of Farah, we have had a great experience in selling our home. Farah was always very easy to contact and was always considerate of all our needs! We short sold my home in a record time and were able to close escrow and move out while other people in my community still hadn't sold their homes. Farah was excellent in handling the sale with two different loan companies and have me walk out of the loan free and clear! The most important thing Farah did was to sale the house without having me default on my loan and keep my credit in good shape! Farah did a great job of keeping my wife and I up to date along the whole process, I would definitely recommend using Sunny Coast to my friends and family!!!! "
