Adam Pascu, Broker/Owner

Adam grew up in Bethesda, MD, just 2 miles outside of DC with his parents & two older brothers. He received his B.A. in psychology (focus on psychobiology) from the University of Virginia in 1997. After college, Adam spent 2 years researching Alzheimer’s disease at the National Institutes of Health. After backpacking in Europe, Adam moved to San Diego where he began his real estate career as a marketing consultant at a small Internet Firm in 1999. After working in sales, service, management & product development, Adam found his niche as a marketing consultant, specializing in search engine marketing for Realtors. This is where Adam & his former business partner, Steve, met & began developing their business plan to become Realtors while studying the industry as consultants.

Starting in 2004, Adam joined Prudential California Realty and began working with his first clients. A couple years later, he moved to Keller Williams Realty and stayed there for ~5 years. Spending those years at the “big brokerages” was a great learning experience, but ultimately, Adam decided to start his own brokerage. In the winter of 2012, 73 Degrees Realty was founded in order to better service our clients & build a business.  Since then, Adam has represented over 100 clients in residential transactions & has sold over $60 million in personal sales.

As a real estate broker & consultant, Adam specializes in providing personal service with an intellectual touch to his clients, friends, and family.  He helps his clients reach decisions by asking the right questions with patience. With an approach of education, he provides relevant information to his clients so that they are comfortable making informed decisions that meet their needs. Through years of training and experience, Adam has developed into a skillful negotiator that always has his clients best interests at heart.

Adam’s family includes his wife Misty and 2 boys (AJ & Austin). His hobbies include soccer, snowboarding, camping, hiking, cooking, travel, gardening, guitar, motorcycles, spiritual studies and basically any outdoors activity or sport. He focuses on living green both in the home, office and through various organizations that he volunteers with.

Adam Pascu has been amazing to work with. Right from the beginning, Adam's genuine interest in what mattered to us, his follow up, attention to detail—all of it was above and beyond any experience we've had other agents in the past. Adam helped us find the home we absolutely fell in love with, and worked hard to make the transaction smooth and painless. He kept everything in order throughout the process, and his availability and communication on everything exceeded our expectations. I believe Adam could run a coaching business training Realtors on how to turn clients into raving fans. He exemplified a wonderful client experience from beginning to end. Highly recommended. Will definitely refer to all family and friends. Thank you, Adam.

Our family relocated from Phoenix to San Diego. We were new to the area and Adam helped us with the area and a location that would work for us. Adam was very professional and knowledgeable about the industry. We were so pleased with his work that he also assisted us in selling our home when we moved. Keep up the good work, Adam, and we will certainly recommend you to our friends & family!

- Bolivar Family

Adam was a great help in selling our house. Kept us up to date on all the comings and going. Very cheerful attitude. Always there to advise us what was going on. Would use him again if I ever needed a real estate agent. Would highly recommend him to my friends and family.

- Noel & Margie Durkin

It was a pleasant experience working with Adam for our first home (condo) purchase. He was very patient with our unending list of questions we had at every stage of the process. His experience and knowledge helped us get our offer accepted. During the escrow period, he was on top of things and made sure the pace of the whole 30-day escrow process is maintained. We would happily recommend him to any home-buyer.

We met Adam while out house hunting one day, at a random open house we went into. He was nice, and just let us walk around, then fielded questions we had. In contrast to other open houses where the realtors were either rude or pushy, his attitude was a breath of fresh air. We asked him to be our agent. We were very picky and wanted to find the perfect house. He spent nearly a year, yes a year, showing us properties. He was never impatient. He always asked what we liked, what we would change, and then found homes for us to see. He helped us find exactly what we wanted. We love our new home. When it was time to sell our prior house a year later, We asked him to be my agent once again. He guided us through the process, and took on the odd jobs necessary to make everything perfect for showing. He showed the house, found interested parties, and had an offer on the table within two weeks. He was wonderful throughout the process and made house selling a painless affair. His professionalism knowledge,ethics and his friendly personality make him the perfect agent, and we highly recommend him.

We contacted Adam because we were looking to buy a home in the Clairemont area of San Diego. Adam methodically took us through the process A to Z making us feel comfortable as first time home buyers. He has insight into the area as a local resident and has additional resources to help with selecting lenders, escrow, inspectors, and post sale services. For anyone looking to purchase a home I would strongly suggest working with Adam.

Adam is a joy to work with and really gets a tough job done...He was articulate, thorough, stayed calm and logical, and helped keep us on track in our most anxious moments...He was a great listener and really heard us every step of the way... His use of electronic technology both for communication and document execution helped make a difficult sale seem effortless...He was able to easily mitigate difficult situations along the way on our behalf...We highly recommend Adam to buyers and sellers alike as a most professional real estate broker!

- Joan & Adrienne

You're welcome Adam! It was my pleasure! I should be the one thanking you. You worked very hard to get this done & your patience will always be appreciated. Not once did you ever complain about anything & you met me more than half way on a lot of things. I will always be grateful for the work you put in. Thank you.

Dear Lisa (My Old office Manager), I just wanted to let you know how wonderful Adam Pascu was to work with in selling our house that was in a trust. He was very attentive and had well researched ideas for price. He was also very patient with me when I was trying to figure out for the good fo the estate if I should drop the price. I was dreading selling the house, but he made it painless & it really helped out that he was in constant contact with our tenant & facilitated that easily. He is a wonderful asset to your company & I will refer everyone I know buying or selling to him! Sincerely, Cathy

- Cathy

You are definitely the best. Honest, objective and give personal attention to detail. Perfect 10, you even stuck the landing! Thank you for your concern and friendship through the process. You can call me anytime.

- Tom Cope

Mr. Pascu showed great effort in finding the right home that would best suit my husband and my wants, needs, and interests. He sat down with us and asked what was important to us in our home, which helped us eliminate properties that didn't suit our needs. His experience and suggestions helped us de- cide which properties and amenities best suited us. Because of this, we knew exactly which property we were going to call home the moment we walked through it's front door. Team 73 Degree's website provided us with a wealth of properties to view on line, making the preliminary part of the process quite easy. The website was easy to use and provided us with daily updates of properties that matched our interests and price range. We were able to search for homes 24 hours a day/7 days a week and save any properties that peaked out interests. Mr. Pascu was always available for immediate showing and, unbeknownst to us, would drive by to view the property and give us an honest assessment of the neighborhood and condition of the home. To top it off, the Lender he recommended gave us the best rate, hands down, out of everyone else. We are extremely satisfied with the entire process, from start to finish.
