When enlisting the services of a real estate professional, you want someone who is both knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of real estate and has a solid understanding of the unique San Diego real estate market. With over three decades of professional real estate experience in both sales and brokerage, Rebecca is a trusted advisor her clients can rely on. Ascending to the peak of the luxury real estate market requires traits that Rebecca possesses in abundance. Detail, patience and integrity are hallmarks that have defined her practice since 1979. As a top producing agent in beautiful San Francisco with well known brokerage Grubb Ellis, Rebecca's exposure and representation of the city's most exclusive properties demanded an unrivalled level of commitment and service. After the 1989 San Francisco earthquake she moved to San Diego and opened a successful real estate company, including her own mortgage and escrow operations.

Still passionate about real estate Rebecca soon joined Sotheby's International Realty in 2007 as a broker associate where she continues to share her deep understanding of the market and hard-won experience in transaction process and negotiation. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, as well as the North County Board of Realtors. She is a sophisticated yet down-to-earth product of the Midwest United States where she attended the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point.

With assisting Buyers, his knowledge of the area's history, architecture and construction adds valuable insight. Albert grew up in the community of Rancho Santa Fe and walked to the local school (uphill both ways!). Together with his wife and three daughters, he has thoroughly enjoyed the lifestyle, recreation, safety, great schools and climate that San Diego has to offer. Albert originally obtained a real estate license in Hawaii while studying architecture with the University of Hawaii. As a business owner in Hawaii, he was invited to be on the "Green Star" board with the Kauai Chamber of Commerce for a sustainability consortium. Uniquely, Albert had the opportunity to "live off the electrical grid" for several years while building homes in Kauai, which instilled a true appreciation of the relationship between development, resource creativity and environmental improvement. Albert Plattner previously owned and operated a local real estate brokerage and eventually came to the conclusion that the best way to represent his clientele is to be associated with Sotheby's International Realty, the company with the most effective marketing platforms, where your property listing is accessible to capable buyers locally, nationally and internationally.
