North County San Diego Realtor Mary Mac Capener is an agent with P.S. Platinum | Compass, specializing in Del Mar, La Jolla, Rancho Santa Fe and Solana Beach. Mary Mac works with clients to professionally market and sell luxury properties, also assisting buyers in finding the perfect property to call home.
Mary Mac’s approach when working with clients is to listen first, allowing her to truly understand client needs before working tirelessly to meet their real estate goals. She always puts her clients first, which she feels is the best path to client satisfaction.
Prior to working in coastal San Diego, Mary Mac was a real estate agent in Los Angeles. Earlier in her career, she worked in commercial real estate in Austin, Texas and on the sales team for Ritz-Carlton luxury residences in Washington, D.C.
Mary Mac has a degree in English from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. An East Coast native, she now lives in Del Mar with her husband, two young children and their rescue dog. As would be expected from a Tarheel, Mary Mac enjoys watching college basketball. A perfect day for her would start with a morning yoga class, followed by time at the beach and lunch with her family and finished off spending a beautiful summer afternoon with friends at the Del Mar Race Track.
Ingrid Siikov is a talented real estate professional whose vast experience spans the industry including commercial retail development and leasing, sales and marketing of high rise condominium developments and sales of coastal single family luxury homes. Her first project upon arriving in San Diego in 1985 was the iconic luxury high rise condominium downtown, Meridian as director of retail leasing.
Ingrid grew up and attended college in Toronto, where she connected with one of the premiere Canadian developers of luxury high rise condominiums, Vancouver-based Bosa Development, and she began working with them when they entered the U.S. market. Ingrid successfully sold out numerous projects in record time such as Marquee Park Place in Irvine (232 units), Legend in PETCO Park (178 units) and, most recently, Bayside on the Embarcadero (232 units).
Ingrid’s knowledge of the industry and her commitment to helping clients find the perfect property to meet their needs, has resulted in long-standing relationships and a great deal of referral business. She values each client relationship, and it is clear that she works in real estate because she knows and loves it.
Ingrid’s passion for real estate was contagious, and all three of her sons followed in her footsteps into the “family business.” Though she has reached many professional goals and received accolades for her work, her family is the accomplishment she is most proud of. Her perfect San Diego day would involve spending time with them at Del Mar Beach. If they are too busy running open houses or making deals on behalf of their clients, she’d be happy to enjoy lunch at Buon Appetito in Little Italy. A movie and a glass of fine wine would be nice, too.
With a background in sales, an education in psychology and interior design, along with experience working in architectural services, I bring a unique approach to the real estate industry. Along with high ethical standards and a strong sense of integrity, my skills in these various fields allow me to best serve my clients through the complex process of selling or purchasing a home. In addition, I work closely with Dean Meredith, AIA, an award winning architect with over 30 years of experience navigating through design review processes and city codes and regulations, to offer my clients a complimentary concept design for a new home or remodel along with your listing. I also offer complimentary conceptual architectural design services to my buyers, whether they need help with interior design issues, wish to remodel, build a new home, or just understand the challenges of a particular site. This combination of real estate, design, and architectural services gives me unique insight and expertise in helping clients purchase or sell their home in coastal California.

Brett Combs has always been and will always be my go-to broker! The above and beyond attitude and practice
of Brett has helped me create memorable homes and experiences in my life and this latest purchase is the best so far!
I had heard about Brett from a friend of mine. My friend, a home builder, was selling a house and Brett was the buyer’s agent. My friend told me that his experience in that transaction with Brett made him decide that he’d want Brett to represent him in any future transactions. (read between the lines: my friend thought Brett was a ‘bulldog’ in the negotiation phase and wants him on his side the next time!) So, I interviewed Brett and a few other agents, and found Brett to be the most professional, yet friendly and approachable, knowledgeable, honest, and determined of them all. Brett’s style was perfect for me. He’s easy to communicate with, made fantastic recommendations to help sell my property quickly, and honestly took care of everything! It was the easiest house sale I’ve ever had. I will definitely use Brett on all of my future real estate transactions.
Brett Combs was raised in Del Mar thus knows the area and is extremely well connected. He is very knowledgeable, street smart and well organized. He is proficient in state of the art backup support and marketing techniques. His position as #1 in Del Mar in the industry speaks to the fact that he is highly capable.
Brett was the consummate professional. I interviewed a number of agents for the sale of my house and chose Brett because my sense was he was the most honest and straightforward of the agents I met. He is also a master of marketing – look at the quality of the photos and videos he posts and dedicated website he puts up for homes. His videos aren’t just a montage of sweeping photos with cheesy music. They’re real videos. He has represented many, many sellers or buyers in Del Mar. It was important to me to use a broker who really knew Del Mar, and Brett ticks all the boxes. He isn’t they typical salesman with an overactive vocal engine who pretends to be your best friend. He doesn’t waste your time shovelling baloney – he tells it to you straight up. But he is very tactful. He doesn’t trash talk other brokers (like so many do). He prefers to show his mettle with actions rather than words. I’m a NYer by background and therefore I tended to get a bit hyper and stressed during the sales process. Brett’s unflappable nature and cool head calmed me when I was bugging out. Frankly, I wouldn’t use anyone else the next time the need arises.
We have rented from Brett in the past and have now completed three luxury real estate transactions through him in the past eight years. I was an executive vice president for a major financial services firm and retired after 40 years. A great deal of my work was in the mortgage industry and Brett displays a unique understanding of the real estate market in the San Diego area. In addition, the customer service is second to none. Highly recommend to anyone seeking a top quality experience in renting, purchasing, or selling real estate. He also did a great job in managing a rental property I owned.
Brett Combs is a terrific agent. When first meeting, it was apparent he was most interested in strategically marketing our Del Mar home, not just listing it. His approach stood out and was reflected in the presentation of the home through “staging” recommendations, outstanding pictures and a narrated video which included a sweeping overhead panorama of where the house sat above the ocean in Del Mar. Brett created a standalone website for the home which allowed prospective buyers the opportunity to explore it in greater detail before they visited and review what they had seen after a visit. It was a great marketing tool. All showed the house beautifully and insured buyers could both see and “feel” the house.
His intimate knowledge of Del Mar was essential in the marketing and selling process. Every few blocks in Del Mar impacts the accessibility of the beaches, restaurants, track and lagoon. Only someone with great knowledge of these intricacies can point out the benefits of specific locations, comparing and contrasting competing properties. During the selling process he used his market knowledge to help prospects see the benefits of our property.
And last, but not least, he was an effective negotiator, was patient and yet firm when required. And he was invaluable during the escrow and closing process, with a team that kept things on track, saw potential difficulties in advance and was always prepared to get us to the finish line”. When any problems surfaced he went well beyond the normal agent to help us solve them.
We’d sign on with Brett again without reservation.

I have been working with Tanys for quite and have been extremely pleased with her. She is responsive pleasant and has never let me down. I’ve used other leasing agents but no one comes close to her. I had one difficult tenant and she shielded me from the situation effectively. I live in LA so it’s good to know she has my back down there.
