What clients are saying...

To say that Brent and his team go above and beyond barely scratches the surface. 

For starters, Brent worked with a sense of urgency, was meticulous with every detail, was patient, and has incredible connections that he called upon to ensure our house  was in tip-top shape prior to our photos showing. Brent explained the importance of preparation, and educated us during our home sale process, while also ensuring our needs were met the whole time. He oversaw every detail, even purchasing extra potted plants before our showing and having a live band perform on our back patio. He was just as methodical in the negotiation process. He was readily available and he 

kept us informed at every step of the way. We whole-heartedly trusted his feedback as we progressed. Brent and his team also ensured all the transaction paperwork was  diligently, accurately, and promptly completed by all parties. He also has an amazing calm demeanor that dramatically eases what can otherwise be a  stressful and complicated transaction. 

~ Adam Cooper

We were extremely happy with the job Brent did in getting our home of 22 years sold. It was an emotional time for us and Brent always had our back and always puts his best  foot forward. His rolodex of support services aiding us in getting the house ready was impressive too! Thanks so much Brent! 

~ Brian LePard

Brent is a great realtor he has decades in the business... I have known him a long time... eager to do business with him again and anytime or referral... highly recommend! 


This has been the most phenomenal experience with a real estate agent IN OUR LIVES! We have purchased and sold several properties and have encountered some good and not-so-good R.E. agents. Brent came in and through his creativity, diligence, perseverance, and PLAIN HARD WORK got a unique property which had been on the market for a year and half sold at a good price in TWO WEEKS. My husband and I have never experienced anything even close to the supreme level of his performance for us. If you have property ANYWHERE in So. Cal I would immediately contact him. Just WOW!

~ Kanta Masters

Brent Ringoot  is the most positive person I know. He truly strives to bring you high quality service and professionalism throughout your real estate transaction. He has helped guide some of my clients through curb appeal, home staging, out of state vacant land sales and of course shopping for and/or selling a home. It's no surprise he's among the top 15% of Berkshire Hathaway Agents. A true star! ⭐

~ Kelly Dirk

We had such a great experience buying our first condo through Brent Ringoot, that we bought a second one through him as well. He made the home buying process easy and helped us through the negotiations with very little stress. He hooked us up with our lender and home inspector. He is knowledgeable and experienced. Will be using his services the next time we are in the market for a home.

~ Michelle Wise

We had the best experience of finding our forever home with Brent. He asked us all the right questions, found out about our likes and dislikes and more importantly about our plans and aspirations. He found us exactly the type of property that we were looking for in our budget. He is experienced and will do his best to find you what you are looking for.   We highly recommend him.

If you want someone who is down to earth and will get the job done, Brent is your realtor!

~ Candace P

Brent did a great job helping us sell our home!  We were in a rush to sell our home (trying to sell during summer before school started) and he did everything in his power to expedite the process.  He was able to connect us with painters, a staging company, and all the other people we needed to get our home sold.  He made himself available whenever we needed him and he guided us through the whole process start to finish.  Thank you Brent!

~ Ilene Cooper

Brent is a fabulous real estate professional who puts his clients' needs first as he helps them buy and sell property.

~ Anne Howard

I have known Brent Ringoot for over 23 years and personally can say that he is a man of his word, backed with honesty and honor. A rare combination these days. He helped sell my mother in-laws home without a hiccup and came through with all that was promised.

~ John Liljeblad

Basically - Brent Ringoot helped us find an amazing home and property - almost an acre, 15 minutes from beach, negotiated a great price and walked us through the entire process with professionalism and patience. Would use his services as a realtor again most definitely and can recommend hiring him knowing he will make sure buying a home comes with a sense of total success based on what you are looking for.

~ Ryan Caringola D.C.

We were first time home buyers who had fairly narrow criteria and needed objective perspectives, a bit of hand-holding, plus a realtor that was going to exhaustively look at all available options including many we wouldn’t have considered without guidance. Overall Brent Ringoot provided top-tier capabilities as a realtor and we purchased an amazing home at a great price based on market comparables. We wanted space - as close to an acre for garden, fruit trees, bee hives and opportunity for future home development. Two daughters - so local high-school had to meet our requirements. Finally - we are a beach orientated family so quick access < 10 minutes was key. With patient timing to explore as many options as possible plus some flexibility to commit only when it felt 100% genuinely right - Brent was always right there all along the way and was a savvy negotiator while being diligent with all paper work. He liaisons very well with other parties, is exceedingly enthusiastic about meeting your needs, and we couldn’t have had a better home buying experience. I can recommend Brent Ringoot Homes with absolute confidence.

~ Brandt Newcomer

I’ve had the distinct pleasure of knowing Brent Ringoot “the friend” on a personal level for many years. Because I already knew him to be an honest and ethical man of good character, it was a no brainer who to call when my wife and I were ready to buy our first home.
I already knew Brent to be very experienced in the field and passionate about what he does, and the type of person who strives to excel in his pursuits, be they personal or professional.

Brent Ringoot “the realtor” did not disappoint. Even though our price point was not going to be a big payday by any means, Brent put in a lot of diligent work for us and we always felt like we were his most important client.
Brent suggested and showed us a number of homes, some with multiple showings, and was always very communicative and accommodating to our schedule.
Buying a home is a daunting matter under the best circumstances, but as first time buyers there was so much we didn’t know. We were lucky to have had and are still deeply grateful for Brent’s expertise and guidance to help us navigate the process.
When we found the home we wanted Brent went to work… negotiating a good price and working out all the potential pitfalls of what could have been very tricky, as ours was a short sale in the chaotic climate of real estate in 2008.
I have in the past, and will in the future recommend Brent Ringoot to close friends, something which I do not do lightly and only when I have the utmost of confidence in someone.
Should we ever need a realtor again, Brent Ringoot Homes will be my first call.

In gratitude,
Bruce Relaford


Brent is thorough, explains things well and is service oriented. When it comes to potentially complicated transaction, these are traits I value most.

~ Tom Kabbash

We love working with Brent !

~ James Ingraham

Brent was awesome through the whole process start to finish. He helped us find the right place at the right price. This was at a time when the market was moving very fast and many places were going above asking price with multiple offers. He also helped us through the close process which was challenging due to being over a holiday. Closed on time and able to move in when we needed to. I would wholehearted recommend him to anyone as he is very professional and competent at his craft.

~ Jim Holliday

Best Realtor I’ve ever worked with. Highly recommend Brent. His knowledge of the industry plus his overall work ethic has shown us how a great realtor works. Can’t thank him enough.

~ shawnestep3

I cannot say enough about Brent. From the moment we discussed my property to receiving a market research study from him, he listened to my needs and responded quicker than I have ever experienced any real estate agent in over 30 years of buying real estate.  He was efficient, professional, knowledgeable and he worked together with me to market the home to sell quickly during a time that homes usually do not sell well. He also put a team together to stage the home and make it look attractive. Brent is part of our list of forever "Go To's".

~ user6863864

We highly recommend Brent Ringoot.  He was in our corner all the way. Initially, we were just looking but not planning to make an offer and Brent was happy to show us around. When he showed us a house that exceeded our purchase criteria, we had to go for it. Brent gave us some tips to sweeten our offer, and even though we were outbid, Brent was able to get the seller to accept our offer. Later, he successfully negotiated a price reduction to cover needed repairs. The escrow on the house we were selling was supposed to close before the escrow on the house we were buying closed, but when it got extended, Brent successfully negotiated a longer escrow for the house we were buying, Brent stayed in constant communication with us throughout the process. He recommended contractors to put in the bids for the repairs, which will be completed after we move in. he stayed in communication with our lender and the agent who sold our house, so we were always on the same page. He also let us know questions for us to ask. In the end, everything worked out to everyone's satisfaction.

~ tgmcc04

I had recently bought a house and needed someone I could trust to sell my other property. When I interviewed Brent Ringoot it was clear that he could not only navigate through the sales restrictions of Covid-19 safely, but also deliver great service and results. His cutting-edge marketing strategies generated multiple offers and I received top dollar for my home in just days. I would highly recommend Brent to anyone looking for a top Realtor in San Diego, either buying or selling.

~ zuser20170212222939085

Brent is a fabulous realtor with a lot of knowledge and expertise. He got us a deal almost at our asking price all during quarantine. And it was to a buyer who wasn't even local and never stepped foot in the house himself but rather viewed the house via virtual walkthroughs. Brent also strictly followed all safety protocols. We had several offers within a few weeks thanks to Brent and his social marketing strategies. He communicated with us regularly and was always very friendly. He comes highly recommended and we couldn't have been happier with how seamless the process was.

Joanne Zimbler

Brent did the seemingly impossible - selling my condo during this COVID-19 pandemic! I was actually planning to list my condo with another agent, but after Brent shared his amazing marketing strategy and enthusiasm, he became the clear choice. He had a professional photographer take photos and even did video walkthroughs to share on social media. The condo and photos looked absolutely great and we were all ready to put on the MLS when - you guessed it - coronavirus hit, and everyone was sheltering in place. For a week or two the real estate industry was shut down. But it all got sorted out, and Brent figured out how to show it safely. He made sure that potential buyers were pre-qualified and brought protective equipment to wear (masks, gloves and booties). During the first week, we received multiple offers close to my asking price with a 30 day Escrow period. Brent never let the challenges of COVID-19 get in the way. In fact, it went so smoothly, we even closed Escrow 8 days early! I highly recommend Brent Ringoot.

~ Matt63863

Brent has been TRUSTWORTHY, INTELLIGENT + SUPPORTIVE + I am 100% confident with Brent as a person + a Realtor .. Brent Ringoot represented me as a buyer. . Beyond being a Realtor- he loves life and is uplifting to be around.. Brent Ringoot is there for you-every step of the way plus ...Really recommend Brent Ringoot.

~ zuser20190909221156515

Brent recently helped my sister and I sell our family home in Cardiff. He was dedicated, knowledgeable, and a rapid responder to a number of changes in our selling process. He has a positive can-do attitude and lives locally so he really knows the area, and also marketed our home nationwide.  We were so happy to work with him. He found the perfect buyer for us and was available to monitor the staging and sale of the home even we were out of town. A pleasure to work with you, Brent!

~ cnesbitt76

Brent was fantastic.  We needed to sell our fathers house after he passed and we live out of town.  Brent had a vast knowledge of people who could take care of the little issues that come up during a sale and took care of it for us.  He was a great communicator, professional had a great feel for the local market and the marketing he did for us was unbelievable, he got us a very high price.  Highly recommended.

Thanks Brent.

~ Robert Matthiessen

Brent went above and beyond to help us navigate the purchase of our home in Carlsbad. He was acting as both our agent and the seller's agent and he did so with the highest integrity. Even after we closed escrow, Brent has been a vital asset to us, offering to help with whatever we need. We would absolutely recommend Brent as an agent you can trust and who gets the job done.

~ shannonwlohr

Brent was hands down the best realtor we have ever dealt with. So much so that we will never use another realtor as long as he is in business. He was able to get us in to see a property that was on the market 18 hours. Because of this we were able to make an offer ( one of many) and get the home of our dreams!! 

He is kind, professional and incredibly efficient. We cannot recommend him highly enough. There are realtors and then, there is Brent. He’s truly one of a kind. 

Ps. We used him because we kept losing homes to other people using him when we had a different realtor!! Have you ever heard the saying “If you can’t beat them, join them”?

~ meggles777

Brent is an amazing realtor so knowledgeable and trusting , he sold our house without it ever going on the market ! Wow , so fast yet so thorough. We got an incredible deal and we owe it all to Brent ! He knows the neighborhood and what a help that was , he is so friendly and was so caring to our needs and definitely exceeded our expectations, If you are in need of an honest and reliable realtor Brent Ringoot is the man you’ve been looking for ! We would recommend him a thousand times ! Thanks again Brent we love you !!

~ mrspikachu6

Brent did a great job for us in the purchase of this home. He is not only extremely knowledgeable of the area, but goes all out to get the best results for his clients. We highly recommend him for any real estate transactions.

~ gittebb

Very good realtor  - personally and professionally - very good negotiator, very responsive. 

It took us long time to find the home, meaning, we ( myself, my husband, mother-in -law) would contact Brandt with different house inquires constantly. However, Brent was very patient with us, always accessible even on the weekends, evenings, was informative and supportive.

Very nice guy, I would recommend to my friends.

~ user8430866

Although our price point was fairly low, Brent provided us with exceptional service and helped us to find our perfect first home! It's a sellers market and Brent speedily submitted our offers and counter-offers.

~ zuser20160810183003362

Brent is a consummate professional. His integrity, expertise and positive attitude made selling our house a stress free experience. Without any reservation my wife and I recommend him on the buyer or sellers side.  One problem with Brent is he smiles to much!!

~ wbhestimate

I was selling a townhouse in Torrey Highlands while living in the Bay area. Brent was exceptional in providing a thorough assessment of the property and the local market, screening and arranging contractors, and marketing the townhouse. He arranged everything so that when I travelled to San Diego, in a short window of time I could meet with all the contractors and make decisions. I felt confident in discussing decisions with him, and getting his opinion. Importantly, he made sure the work I wanted to done was expediently handled, and we were able to get the property on the market sooner than I expected. If I had to buy or sell another property in the area, Brent would be the only one I would choose to work with.

~ dhcopy3

I've know Brent since 2010,  he helped my girlfriend and myself find a home here in North County to live in when I was moving here from AZ. He is very honest, professional and would love to work with Brent again in the future when I go to sell my home. If anyone would like any reference on his behalf feel free to email me and I would be more than happy to share my experience with you..

~ wes487

Brent was very patient with all the questions and pickiness of this first-time home buyer. It took us some time to find the house we wanted, and he was there every step of the way. He listened to us and helped us find the perfect home for our family.


Mr Ringoot was called in to sell my home during a divorce. He was very considerate of my needs and my schedule with the kids. He was also very helpful in staging the home for sale. Ideas which I still use today in my new home. Considering the condition of the house, Mr Ringoot was able to sell promptly and at a great price. I am very grateful for his expertise and service.

Michelle Souto

Brent is an agent that makes you feel that your interests are being taken care of with the utmost professionalism , yet you feel at ease with the process. Thanks Mr. Ringoot!


I was involved with a 1031 exchange and had a short time left to identify 2 houses to buy and Brent had to work long and hard with me to find the right deals. He was organized and diligent at setting up all the showings and correspondence with listing agents. He was also patient and has a good personality to work with people.


We worked with Brent on the purchase of our Del Mar home. My husband and I met him at an open house at a time we really needed a fresh set of eyes on the market. We had been outbid on 4 homes in recent months (that ended up selling for less than we bid) and we just needed someone with a new energy. Brent was that person. A new home came on the market but the owner did not want the house to be shown due to an issue with the home. We loved the street, knew we really liked the house. Brent made everything work for us! We saw the house, made a bid, it was accepted, the owners were thrilled and we were more than that! After a two year search, we finally had a home! We closed quickly, began construction and have moved in to our new home and could not be happier! We could not be more grateful to Brent for helping us reach our goal of homeownership here in Del Mar! I would work with him again in a minute! Thanks Brent!

Melissa Myrhum

Brent is fantastic.  He was an absolute pleasure to work with.  He's responsive, has great insight on the area, and very professional. I highly recommend working with Brent.










We appreciated Brent's willingness to respect our perspective on the sale of our home.   He really listened to what we believed would sell the house--because those were the things that convinced us to buy it.  Our house was very much a one of a kind property and he worked hard to find a variety of approaches to showcase the unique elements but also help the home appeal to the broadest spectrum of buyers.  Somehow he was also able to limit the showings to potential buyers who were really ready, willing, and able to buy a home like ours.  We never felt any of the showings were a wasted effort.  And when we sold our home but were not ready to buy again, he found us a perfect rental.  He did a great job for us.


Brent helped me purchase a detached house on a short sale in Vista Shadowridge. He negotiated with the bank and was able to get it at the price I offered, even though two other parties were also bidding on the house. Everything went smooth from bid to close and I'm very happy with my purchase. My phone calls were always returned promptly and he was readily available to address any concerns I had, even after the deal was done. He is professional, congenial, and works hard to make sure you're a satisfied customer. I would highly recommend Brent to anyone buying or selling a home. 5 Stars!


We love the house he found for us.  He listened to us and then found the right house for our budget and taste.  We could not be happier.  He will do everything he can to earn your trust and do what is right for you and not just for the sale.


Brent was always there for us when we scheduled appointments. We had detailed requirements and Brent patiently and professionally brought us to as many homes as we wanted until we found the right one. Great job.


We had such a wonderful experience with Brent. He helped us find just the right home for us. The thing I love most about Brent is that he does not pressure you and is available whenever you need him. He knows San Diego. He showed us homes from Point Loma, to South Park and up to Carlsbad. We decided on Encinitas. My sister just recently needed an agent and I had her give Brent a call. He did a fantastic job with her as well.

Roxanne Gebing

Brent Ringoot was our realtor and sold our house. It was not an easy sell with all sorts of problems that popped up, Foundation issues being the toughest. Brent's enthusiasm and positive attitude helped tremendously. It is a tough market right now and we definitely had some obstacles and Brent helped to navigate every one of them with the utmost in professionalism. His Service, Follow-up & Creative Negotiations were just great. I would highly recommend Brent Ringoot!


Brent is an excellent professional real-estate agent who is ready to go above and beyond. I bought a beach house at Coronado two months ago and he does to contact people or even come and meet with me when I need any help. The relation ship still continues. Great  individual with lots of smile and service oriented!!!


I purchased my town home using Brent and then used him to sell it ten years later.  When I bought my home Brent demonstrated great local knowledge and knew about golf course communities that I wanted.  When I chose him to be my listing agent he helped with staging, repairs, pricing and negotiating the final offer.  He is fantastic in marketing properties. He is responsive, professional, and effective. I would use him again if I were ever to move back to the San Diego area.


As first time home buyers, neither my wife or I had any knowledge of the real estate game or it's many potential pitfalls, and Brent very patiently walked us through every turn. Brent is honest and ethical, and though we were a little intimidated by the whole process (okay, terrified) we always felt like we were in good hands. In addition, he's just a nice guy and very pleasant to be around.

In the grand scheme of things ours was not a big-money deal, yet we never felt like we were any less important than any of his other clients, and he was always ready to show us any properties we wanted to see. (We looked at A LOT) He told us not to be in a hurry, as we were negotiating a short-sale, and they can take a while. He then handed us the keys in about 30 days! We have made the fixer-upper we bought into the home in which we are very happy, so we have no plans to buy or sell a house anytime soon, but if we did I would only be making one call. I have, and will continue to recommend Brent Ringoot to anyone who needs a great agent. Thanks again Brent, - Bruce and Margo


I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how ecstatic Bill and I are with our new Aviara golf property. When we flew down for the weekend, you had certainly done your homework on which properties to walk through. The number and variety of properties was perfect and we were fortunate to find two ideal properties on the first day. You kept us highly informed during the entire escrow process and we were able to meet the 30-day closing target. 

We will certainly recommend you to any of our acquaintances who might be interested in purchasing property in the San Diego area.


If you are looking for someone personable, trustworthy, authentic, and loyal - look no further. Brent Ringoot is the local realtor for you. He's experienced, knowledgeable, and hospitable, not to mention is very well-networked within the local community. Highly recommend him to anyone in the San Diego area!
