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 150 clients in residential & commercial transactions & has sold over $100 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, listening & being patient. 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, such as chairing the annual green homes tour with the San Diego Green Building Council (https://www.sdgreenhomestour.org/).

Adam is a very hard working, detail oriented, agent. Always willing to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure our needs were consistently met. He's responsive, experienced and very pleasant to deal with. We were referred to him by a family member and won't hesitate to refer him to those we know. We've had many experiences with real estate transactions in the past. Adam's helped us with a few of the recent ones. In one transaction we dealt with a particularly difficult buyer. Adam persevered and powered through to the very end!

Adam is a fantastic and professional realtor. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. My family and I have used his services on 6 transactions. I have recommended him to all my friends and family.

- Katarina & Stefan

Adam was extremely patient and knowledgeable while assisting me through the sale of my home. A true voice of reason and always willing to go the extra mile, Adam was a great partner throughout the whole process from start to finish. He was able to secure top value for my home by offering considerations I hadn’t thought of and was also able to execute an extremely smooth escrow process with finesse.

- Alan

We cannot say enough good things about Adam….!  He is the best! Adam helped our family buy our first apartment. He made the experience so easy and enjoyable, especially for first-time home-buyers like us. He is quick to respond, always happy to help, and the most supportive. Adam was so professional, organized and helpful. He truly knows the market and made great recommendations for us. We wouldn’t ever want to work with any other agent. We recommend Adam whole-heartedly!

- Herve & Sylvia

Adam's high real estate knowledge is what separates Adam from the rest. Our selling experience was very easy due to Adam’s honesty and professionalism. He was responsive and kept us informed throughout the process.

- Aleks & Edina

Adam is an extremely knowledgeable agent. He is very dedicated and patient. He'll always put in extra effort to make sure his customer's needs have been met. It was a great please to be working with Adam. I would recommend Adam to all my friends and family members.

- Vera & Dragan

Adam did an amazing job negotiating on our behalf. We closed escrow in record time. Will recommend Adam to anyone who needs a professional in his field.

- Mark & Mona

We first met Adam when we were buying our first house. Since then, he has guided us through selling that house, finding and buying a second, and now, most recently, selling that second house. He always conducts himself with a high degree of professionalism and is always careful to strike the balance of offering guidance where needed, yet not giving unsolicited opinions. One of his strengths is his openness when explaining the process and you genuinely feel as though he is guiding you through the experience as honestly and openly as possible. He is trustworthy and ethical, making sure to always act with decorum and dignity when liaising with other agents and buyers / sellers. He always makes himself available when needed and is very prompt to respond and follow up when communicating asynchronously. Adam is not only an excellent real estate agent, he's now also some we consider a friend. I think that speaks to Adam's warm and genuine personality. I would recommend his services to anyone interested in buying or selling a property, from first-time buyers to more seasoned buyers / sellers and will certainly make him our first call, should we decide to re-enter the housing market.

- Joe & Jenny

Adam worked through a Reverse 1031 Exchange with me to a great conclusion!

Adam is a professional yet very human agent, who knows how to listen to needs, wishes, and concerns. I highly recommend him.

- Rosalba & Fiamma

Adam is an honest person. He is very professional in his dealings. He kept me informed during the sale process. He never forced any decision on me; he provided his recommendations and allowed me to make the final call. Looking forward to working with him in the future on some other transactions.

- Hardeep

Adam was a perfect real estate agent for us. He exceeded our expectations in so many ways. He helped us get the condo ready to sell by setting up painters, a handyman, cleaners, etc. He held several Open Houses, and was willing to show the property at any time. Most importantly he communicated with us openly and constantly throughout the whole process. Adam is very personable, yet always completely professional. We highly recommend Adam Pascu and would use him again for any future real estate needs.

Adam Pascu Broker/Owner (858) 761 1707

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 ...
