San Diego's Fastest Growing Real Estate Brokerage is AARE 

According to the San Diego Business Journal’s report of the fastest growing private companies in San Diego, only one Real Estate Brokerage is showcasing incredible growth. Coming in at #6 on the entire list, AARE, or Andrew Arroyo Real Estate is catching some serious attention in the industry. 

When I first saw this, I thought “I have never heard of this company before…” which made me very curious. How could I be immersed in the San Diego real estate market for the past 7 years and not know about the fastest growing Brokerage? I had to learn more. So I contacted AARE after reviewing their website at and their PR contact was ready to send me 3 of their real estate professionals right away.

I was excited to meet these 3 agents and find out why this company has been so successful in such a competitive marketplace. Gary Giffin, Sharyn Seymour, and Nicole Mazzola came to my office here at the U-T and answered my questions until I had no more to ask. I was blown away. While there were numerous things I learned in our time together, these are the 3 main things I believe we can attribute to their incredible success.

1 – Culture. I listened to the agents tell stories about covering for each other on vacation, no one willing to accept any compensation, they just wanted to help one another. This is quite uncommon in a commission-based business. These professionals weren’t just thinking of themselves, but the Team as a whole. That type of behavior is only possible when great culture exists in an organization.

2 – Leadership. You should have heard the agents talk about their leader. They admired him, they were inspired by him and they were excited to share with me the company’s vision. They know who their leader is on a deeper level and they believe in the direction they are moving wholeheartedly. There is a clearly defined cause that everyone believes in and collectively work toward.

3 – Professionalism. Many times during our conversation, each agent remarked “who cares about what’s good for the agent, what’s good for the client…?” – There is a CLEAR focus on the client-first, service-first mentality. Based on our conversation, I would say this is their #1 priority. Very refreshing to see this in today’s profit-first, service-second world.

It should also be noted that AARE currently donates 12 percent of it’s profits to charity. They started at 1 percent and have increased it every year with a goal of 20 percent by 2020.

"My priority when working with clients is to learn what their goals are and to put their needs first - no matter what. It’s all about what the buyer or seller wants, and my job is to help them realize those goals in a way that brings tangible value to their lives." –Gary Giffin

"I was a top-producing agent for over ten years, but when I met Andrew I knew I wanted to join AARE. There was no need to think it over. Andrew’s vision, business model and giving heart was the path I wanted to follow. AARE is unlike any other brokerage. We’re changing the way people think about Realtors." –Sharyn Seymour
