It has been such a pleasure working with Ross! He is very professional, gives honest advice, is fun to work with and really understands what the market is doing.

One of the best things about working with Ross is that he has made looking for a house a learning experience for both me and my husband. Another great thing about Ross is that he will ALWAYS answer our calls – day or night!


My wife and I were introduced to Ross via Zillow.  Since it wasn’t a recommendation from a friend or colleague we did not know what to expect. What we discovered quite quickly is that not only is Ross very knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate, but he is extremely responsive. This was a HUGE deal for us as we did not have a lot of experience in the buying and selling process. Because we were simultaneously buying and selling the stress level was elevated even further. Ross was able to recognize this early on and was very accommodating to our needs. He always took my calls, even if it was to tell me he was on the other line and would call me back.
In addition to his excellent communication skills, Ross is also a great negotiator. He was able to market and sell our unique property within a week for almost 10% more than we initially desired. He also negotiated with the sellers agent (the home we were purchasing) and got us a deal even though there were several other offers on the table (some higher than ours).

We are very grateful that we were introduced to Ross and would highly recommend him to anyone venturing into their next home purchase and/or sale…in fact we already have.

I’ve used ELITE Homes San Diego to buy, sell and remodel several homes on my behalf and they continue to surprise me. Their remodeled homes not only sell for more than anything else in the neighborhood, they sell for a LOT more! The ELITE Homes team knows what will attract buyers, from the exact paint colors to the latest trends in flooring and cabinetry – they just get it. The level of craftsmanship in the homes really stands out, and I think that’s why they sell so quickly. The buyers feel like they are buying a brand new home. If you are looking to maximize the equity in your home, make sure to give ELITE Homes a call.

Two of the most important qualities I look for in real estate investment advisors are trust and experience, Ross Rattray has both. Ross and ELITE Homes San Diego bought, remodeled and sold three properties for me and turned a substantial profit on all three.  One of the properties continued to present challenges, but Ross never skipped a beat. He and his team worked around the clock to finish the project. The home was beautiful from the remodeled kitchen to the gorgeous landscaping, and best of all, my ROI was excellent. I highly recommend Ross and his team to anyone looking to buy, sell or remodel their home.

The home I purchased from ELITE Homes San Diego was everything I had been looking for.  It was in great condition and move-in ready.  There were only two very minor fixes and they took care of them immediately. The whole transaction went so smoothly that we closed escrow in less than 30 days.  I would definitely recommend working with ELITE Homes.

Not one day goes by, when either Gary or I comment on how much we love our home. We had a wonderful family Thanksgiving here, which everyone enjoyed. We see both the sunrise and sunset, almost everyday. Our kids, family and friends are truly amazed by this place, as are we. Thank you so much for everything.

Ross and his team at ELITE Homes San Diego helped us realize the remodeling possibility for our home which greatly exceeded all of our expectations.  They communicated with us and made sure we were comfortable with our extensive renovation from beginning to end. We could not have been happier with the results! Thanks again ELITE Homes!

ELITE Homes San Diego has bought, remodeled and sold four investment properties on my behalf. The ROI was quite remarkable in such a short period of time. Ross and his team have a thorough knowledge of the San Diego real estate market and a keen eye for spotting unrealized value in property. The building and remodeling team that ELITE has pulled together over the years works like a well-oiled machine. Their work is efficient and their design ideas are always fresh and modern. I’m sure I will be working with ELITE Homes San Diego again very soon.

ELITE Homes San Diego represented the buyer in a short sale that had been on the market for many, many months.  We went through the second lender selling off the property to a new lender, many offers and several extensions on the trustee sale.  When I received the offer from Ross and his buyer, he stuck with it and responded immediately as paperwork was needed.  I would work with him and ELITE Homes San Diego in a minute because he understands what it takes to get the job done.  Thank you.

My clients bought a home remodeled by ELITE Homes San Diego. ELITE Homes San Diego went the extra mile to stand behind their work. Ross is a real, hardworking professional. Cooperation between agents is an essential ingredient in any successful transaction. It can make the difference between satisfied vs. unhappy clients.

Thank you, Ross and ELITE Homes, I look forward to working with you again soon.
