About Claude Braunstein

Claude Braunstein obtained his California Real Estate Broker license in 1977. He has been representing buyers and sellers within the greater San Diego area ever since. He has been recognized in San Diego Magazine as one of the Best Residential Real Estate Agents in San Diego five years in a row. A Graduate of the Real Estate Institute (GRI), he has been certified as a Relocation Professional (CRP) and a Global Mobility Specialist (GMS) by the Worldwide Employee Relocation Council (WERC).


Claude is knowledgeable in Corporate & Military Relocation, Probate and Trust Sales, Short Sales, Foreclosed Properties, and IRS Section 1031 Tax Deferred Exchanges. He is familiar with the CA Prop -19 Property Tax Savings Initiative and can advise qualified clients on how to transfer their property tax base to a replacement residence.


Claude earned his Real Estate Collaborative Specialist-Divorce (RCS-D) designation in 2010. This specialty enables him to counsel divorcing couples regarding real estate issues that are often overlooked during the divorce process but that can result in costly consequences if not properly addressed during the divorce proceedings.


Claude grew up in New York City before moving to Washington D.C., where he worked as a psychologist with the US Navy. He has a Master of Arts degree in psychology from George Washington University. Claude operated his own real estate company from 1977 to 1998, when he affiliated with McMillin Realty. He was affiliated with Coldwell Banker from 2005 to 2015 and joined Windermere Homes & Estates from 2015 to 2023. He joined eXp Realty in 2023.
