Our clients say.

Above and Beyond


I recommend Brian Connelly to represent you in all real estate transactions. He always goes above and beyond to provide excellent service and expertise. He is very knowledgeable in the real estate market and truly cares about his client’s welfare. – Chit, Black Mountain Ranch


Brian did a great job presenting our home to potential buyers. He goes above and beyond to get the deal closed. This was the second time we worked with Brian and highly recommend him for your deal. – T. Lambert, Rancho Santa Fe


I would absolutely recommend Brian Connelly. He truly went above and beyond for us! Being new to the area, he was knowledgeable about the schools and different neighborhoods and what would be a good fit for our family. He is a true professional who gets the job done! – E. Pedder, Fairbanks Ranch

Highly Recommended


Brian has worked with us on two purchases and one sale. He is always available, and his team is very professional and responsive. His ability to market to local and distant markets makes all the difference. He has a quiet mannered delivery that comes off well with prospective buyers. We highly recommend Brian, a top agent, as someone to trust with the sale or purchase of a home. – Powell Family – Rancho Santa Fe.


Brian, and his associate, Simone, sold my $3.8m home in Cielo in less than a month. They knew exactly what had to be done to make it show extremely well and advertised the home in just the right locations. The prospective buyers constantly requested showings and the right person made a reasonable offer that was accepted. If you want a top rated professional with well over 20 years experience…call Brian or Simone at Compass. – Weissman Family – Rancho Santa Fe.


I cannot say enough about Simone, Maria and the whole Compass team. They did an amazing job of keeping everything on track and keeping me updated throughout the whole process. Escrow closed on time and they were able to get me the absolute best offer for my property. I highly recommend Simone, Maria and their Compass team! – K. Dolkas.


We have worked with quite a few very successful real estate agents in the past; our expectations were (in my opinion) high but also realistic. Brian exceeded all of our expectations! We expected him to have lots of knowledge about the property, community, school, process, timeline, what’s important in the process, what’s not. He did. What we didn’t expect was him to really get/understand what was important to us, point out things that weren’t so clear to us, have patience when we required, move fast when we needed to, and be incredibly easy to work with. Purchase of this property was much less stressful than it should/could have been & I think both sides closed happy. That’s the definition of a really good real estate agent! – Lang Family – Rancho Santa Fe.


Simone is great! Super responsive, attentive, listens and she is very patient. My husband and I were very green in the process and she was very caring throughout the whole thing. We couldn’t ask for a better realtor! – Jones Family – San Diego.


We worked with Brian on marketing a difficult property for sale in a competitive Rancho Sante Fe market. Brian hung in there with energy and commitment and successfully got the home sold for us. He was a true professional in every way and very effective despite the challenges. We recommend him highly! – Buss Family.


Simone McNally is the realtor you need. My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having Simone assist us in the selling of our home early this year and she is also who we depended on almost 3 years ago to purchase our 1st home so she is not just someone great to work with but a realtor that we keep going back to for our selling and buying needs. Apart from being extremely kind and the best listener, Simone is very savvy and up on the latest information in her industry so you will feel safe leaving your precious home buying or selling in her capable hands. Simone is not shy to negotiate and she even pushed to get a discount for us when we originally bought our home and we were too scared to risk asking thinking we may lose our chance at the house. Simone sticks to her guns when it’s right to and through working with her now twice going on 3 times, we know to trust her realty instincts. Her communication is stellar and she kept us updated with daily calls and emails on our home sale and offers that were coming in even when we were abroad with our children in Mexico so we wouldn’t miss anything important. I could go on and on but the bottom line of this review is that Simone McNally knows her stuff, she will fight to get you exactly what you need! – Weiler Family – Fallbrook.


It is easy to browse through listings on the computer and save houses that you like, but it is a whole different ball game when it comes to moving past that stage- especially in this competitive market. We appreciated how involved Maria was throughout our home buying process. From coming with us to every open house, to ultimately submitting a competitive offer, we appreciated the time and effort that she put into finding us a perfect house. Maria was always responsive, and on top of everything. She was great at listening to what we were looking for. We cannot overstate how limited our search area was, so we truly believe that the house we ended up in is a testament to her hard work. In addition to helping us purchase our new home, she also sold our old home. Again, just like with our home search, she went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. Both transactions went very smoothly, and we could not be happier with the end result. If you are looking for an agent that is very personable and easy to get along with, supports your goals, has years of industry experience, has many local contacts, is willing to put in a lot of time and effort on your behalf, and will be consistent throughout your entire home buying/selling process, Maria is the perfect person. On top of that, the team she works with is excellent. – L. Worthen – Encinitas


Working with Brian and Simone is like “coming home.” I can close my eyes and rest assured that I’m getting the best care and exposure. – P. Billow – San Diego

Knowledgeable Experts


Brian’s the ultimate professional…..knowledgeable, confident, and competent. He has represented me in both seller and buyer mode for the past nineteen years. Without hesitation, I wouldn’t think of working with anyone else. – PJ. Billow, Sera Mesa


Brian was a pleasure to work with and helped us through the entire process of buying our home. His knowledge surpassed my expectations and he gave us sound advice when we weren’t sure how, or if, to move forward. I never felt pressure from him or that I was wasting his time. He took really good  care of us and made us feel that we were a priority. I would highly recommend Brian for anyone buying or selling a home and we would definitely use him again. Thank you Brian! – Jenna Powell, Carmel Valley


Brian helped us buy and sell our homes. He always negotiates a great deal. He’s a professional and has extensive experience and knowledge about The Southern California real estate market. I highly recommend hiring Brian to buy or sell your house. – M. Gilas, Black Mountain Ranch
