Monique Motley - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Monique Motley is a rock star!

From the moment we met Monique at an open house, we loved her. When we listed our home of 29 years with her, she proved to us right away that she was knowledgeable and had the process down! She kept us informed every step of the way, helped us negotiate everything from our selling price to the repairs that came out of the inspection. We always knew that Monique would do what she said she would do. There was never a question - if she said she would get back to us, she did without fail. Not only is she a great agent, she's an amazing human being. We are so lucky that we found her and our lives are better now that she's in it!

Monique was very attentive and knows how quick she needs to be in order to get the house you want.

She communicated with us very well throughout the whole process. She gave us good suggestions and referrals for inspections. She made everything easier for us explaining step by step all we needed to do. Thank you very much Monique, you are a blessing!

Francesca Brusati

Let me first start by saying I am a first time home owner.

I was scared and apprehensive about the whole process. Monique walked me through the whole process, never rushed me and made sure I felt comfortable at every step. She was always available when I called with questions and constantly found places that met my home buying needs. I will be recommending Monique to anyone who is interested in buying a home, and I will definitely be using her services again when I purchase another property in the future.

Monique is your top notch agent.

We’ve used other agents before and I can say that she went above and beyond for us. She provides added value services that you won’t get with every agent. Her great personality and excellent communication with seller agents was critical for us to get into a home. She also helped us coordinate additional inspections for sewer, roof, etc. which we probably would not have done without her help. This helped us negotiate credits during escrow. She is a great communicator and extremely responsive.

Jennifer Campos

Monique made this whole process much easier than it could have been!

When we ran into issues with the seller, she fought for us and made sure we knew exactly what was going on.

Monique was an absolute pleasure to work with.

She is very knowledgeable and she really took the time to get to know me and know all my needs/wishes for a new home. She worked very diligently to fine me the perfect place!!! In this fast paced market we looked at many, many homes and I made several bids before I found my forever home. Whether by phone, text or email, Monique was always there to answer all my questions throughout the way. I knew I could count on her quick response. I truly feel like I made a friend in Monique. I would recommend her services to anyone without reservation. She is an asset to Ascent Realty!!

Elizabeth Robillard

Monique helped us purchase our dream property in the mountains!

She is responsive, persistent, calm and collected. She has a great team of inspection professionals. While searching, we also heard from a few seller's brokers how much they liked (working with) her - this can give you that edge when sellers are considering multiple offers. Thanks Monique!

Sander Knook

Working with Monique to sell my Little Italy condo was a pleasure.

I could not be in town for many of the required tasks, so Monique stood in for me, meeting with repair people repeatedly to make sure everything was ship shape for the buyers and she kept me apprised of their progress throughout the process via text, email, and video. She possesses great communication skills and made the journey from "listed" to "sold" smooth and effortless. I recommend her highly.

Larry Brimner

Monique is the consummate professional and one of the most understanding and personable persons my husband Dave and I have ever met.

Most importantly... she delivers; she is dedicated and wants to get the job done! She was a great negotiator on our behalf. We were so fortunate to meet Monique and benefit from her amazing talents. She was instrumental in helping us locate our dream retirement home in San Diego. We chose her as our agent and we were super picky and she was amazingly patient and never gave up on us or pushed us into a decision we were not ready for. We looked for about one year with her resolute assistance. She knew exactly what we wanted and when SHE found it - Monique let us know immediately. You can do all the internet searches you want; but if you have a real person looking out for you it makes a world of difference in this business and market. Monique guided us through the entire real estate purchasing process seamlessly and took all the stress off our backs. She also was our listing agent for our townhome we decided to sell; and got us the highest price ever in the University Canyon West complex. She was invaluable and we could not have done this move without her. She guided us through the inspection process and has recommended a number of great construction professionals to help us. She gave us great advice on de-cluttering our existing home; what to look for in a new how and how to transition to a new neighborhood. She knows all parts of San Diego and I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

Beverly Blessent

Monique is absolutely the best realtor we could have hoped for as first-time buyers.

She is friendly, professional, easy to talk to, accessible and always quick to respond. It was clear immediately that she had the experience and know-how we needed to guide us. She knew how to put us at ease and clarify every step of the process. She assured us there are no dumb questions and was absolutely thorough in helping us understand every possibility and preparation we'd need along the way. She fought for us every step of the way making sure we got a deal that is fair. She is empathetic to the roller coaster of emotions that purchasing a home can be, and made the process not only easy, but really enjoyable! We cannot thank her enough!! If you want a realtor you can count on and have the confidence that they will go to bat for you, Monique is IT! We couldn't be happier with our new home! THANK YOU!

Renee Mink

I felt heard and cared for from beginning to end.

No question was too small or insignificant to give attention to. I felt I was part of the process and I felt respected throughout even though this was an emotional sale for me. Monique stayed respectful and helpful and supportive the entire time. She also kept me up to date on each twist and turn so I felt I always knew where we were in the process. I appreciate that open communication.

Sarah Newstead

We had such a great experience buying our first home with Monique.

She made the entire process easy, relaxing, enjoyable. We never felt pressured or hurried, but she was clear with us on what we needed to do, and when, to secure the deal. With Monique's help, our first offer was accepted and everything went very smoothly. Highly recommend working with Monique if you have the opportunity.

Erin Dibos

Monique is a Godsend.

Her knowledge of the area got us much more for our money. She found us a larger, nicer place in a much better neighborhood than we had thought we wanted. A real find! She also handled the transaction and kept everyone involved happy & up to date as we did this remotely.

Mark Cruz

Could not be more pleased with the buying experience and process.

My wife and I, bought our first home with Monique and she made it incredibly easy to understand. I appreciate the time she took to answer our questions and there were a lot. Overall I would recommend Monique to anyone seeking a home in the area. Great experience.

Christine Brown


Monique went above and beyond our expectations. Her excellent communication skills made us feel extremely confident and informed throughout our entire home selling process. She answered questions we didn’t know to ask and answered questions we did ask…even the stupid ones! There were a number of things she graciously offered to handle because we were out of town which was so thoughtful. Monique was efficient and detail oriented from the very first time we spoke to the completion of the sale of our home. We would highly recommend Monique to anyone wanting to sell or purchase a home. Best realtor ever!
