Take a look at a few our our happy clients to see what we can offer for your real estate business, your properties and your communities.
Get Started
Verlin Simmons

Verlin Simmons has been a resident of San Diego County since 1966 and has over 25 years of experience in real estate sales in the area. He started in land and agriculture sales in North San Diego County and moved into residential sales when he relocated to Carmel Valley in 1998.

Verlin enjoys working with people who are in transition: either relocating to San Diego from out of the area; or lifestyle changes related to life events where they are moving up or down in the residential real estate market. Often these moves require not only a knowledge of the local real estate market, but knowing the area communities so he can best match the client to the community.

“I love the process of not only locating a home for someone, but educating them on the neighborhood, and the area in general - what it has to offer in schools, restaurants, or connecting their interests with activities or groups in the area.”

For over 50 years, San Diego has been the backdrop for Verlin’s own transitions starting with high school, to raising 3 children, and now as an empty nester. Verlin enjoys sharing his experiences and knowledge of the area with his clients. As a Baby Boomer, Verlin understands the unique needs of his generation as they transition from the “family home” to a new lifestyle. Baby Boomers have unique needs and Verlin has a personal understanding and sensitivity to the questions and challenges facing his generation.
“I have a great appreciation for the single story family home and the economic, emotional, and physical challenges associated with the next phase for the Boomers.”

Verlin sees it as the next opportunity and embraces San Diego as the place to be a Boomer. Verlin qualifies as both the newest and the oldest (in age) member of the McInerney Team joining them in 2015. He saw the team concept as the best way to provide a quality full service experience for his clients. The McInerney Team brings together different experiences, expertise, and perspectives which provides their clients with the power of a team instead of a single independent agent to smoothly guide them through the process of either selling or buying from start to finish. “We put our ears to the ground and are constantly coming up with new ideas and strategies for clients.” In addition, Verlin feels that Pacific Sotheby’s and Sotheby’s International provide an incredible platform for brand identity, marketing, and global reach for our customers. The combined experience and services are unsurpassed in the San Diego market and the McInerney Team track record of 48 sales last year totaling over 50 million dollars demonstrates it.

Verlin notes: “Jim, our team leader, is known for his quote: ‘Real estate never sleeps.” I joined the McInerney Team and Pacific Sotheby’s so I could, knowing that my clients will receive that care and attention to detail that they deserve and expect.” ???????Verlin lives in Carmel Valley with his wife Maureen. They have 3 adult children and 3 grandchildren. Verlin received his Bachelor of Arts at the University of California, Berkeley in American History. He continues to enjoy reading history books; the San Diego outdoor lifestyle; sunsets over the ocean; mountain biking, an ongoing gin rummy game with Maureen (which she currently holds the lead), and is still looking for the perfect single story home.

Find Your Next HomeYou need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a HomeWhen it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling TacticsOftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

As a certified Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES), Michael is uniquely qualified to serve clients aged 50+ with all their pre and post-retirement real estate needs.

Ironically, Michael’s first job as a teenager was selling comfort shoes where Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty La Jolla’s office is today.

Spending several years in Pittsburgh, where he attended the University of Pittsburgh, Michael enjoyed seven years of management and executive support at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center - one of the largest healthcare systems in the country.

He also was selected to sit on the Critical Care Medical Response Committee, where he assisted in developing policy and procedures that directly affected the lives and care of patients. Upon returning to La Jolla, Michael was hired at Mitel, one of the largest telecommunications companies in the country, where he specialized in complex, multi site call center applications, to those companies and individuals that needed sophisticated telephone and IT systems.

In 2017, Michael decided to combine his 20 years sales experience in the retail, telecommunications and sporting goods businesses, along with his love of Southern California into a career in real estate. As a caregiver to his 99 year old grandfather, Michael has extensive knowledge and resources in the La Jolla area making him a natural for those clients looking to sell their family home and downsize.
