Joan took the time to understand my needs and identity available properties that fit my criteria. She was always accessible and provided an expert point of view. She wasn¿t overly pushy and respected my decisions. She has a great feel for the neighborhoods and distinctive features. We found and closed on my purchase within my set timeline. I¿d recommend her to anyone.
We were first time buyers who have been in the Bay Area for about 5 years now. Needless to say, a lot of the conventional wisdom from our hometown markets did not apply.
We enjoyed working with Joan throughout the entire process. She educated us, anticipated and answered all of our questions, was extremely prompt and professional, and represented us incredibly well to the seller and with our lender. Joan went above and beyond our expectations to help us find and buy a great condo in a crazy market. We could not be happier with how everything turned out with our new home!
Use these agents! I met Joan at an educational seminar as a first-time buyer, and was so impressed by her knowledge that I decided to work with her to buy my first property. She stayed in touch with me through the years, and when I decided to sell, I went right back to Joan. But not before interviewing two others agents just to be sure. And now Joan had been joined by Christie, a high-energy go-getter. They were clearly the team to beat. Joan navigated every step of this arduous process keeping me mostly calm and as stress-free as possible stepping in to explain every little delay. She did everything she said she was going to when she said she was going to do it. You couldn't ask for a better team than these two! I don't have one negative comment to say about them. I only hope I can find them in ten years when I sell my next property
We first hired Joan in 2009 to find us our first home. We did not have a big budget and had a long list of must haves. It took us a while to find our dream home and Joan stood by us every step of the way, writing many offers for us in this competitive market. She drove from San Francisco to Redwood City showing us any home we wanted to view. We finally found a home and she got the offer in before it went on MLS and snagged us the home. We were happy there for four years and decided to move out of the area for a job. We then hired Joan to sell the same house. It was a no brainer. She put it on the market and closed Escrow in about three weeks. Maybe even less. She made everything seamless while in escrow. Coordinating with the Title Company, Lender and other agents and alleviating all of our stress. She is easy to talk to, a wonderful communicator, trustworthy and detail oriented. I would hire Joan over and over again as should you.
As a single woman putting my life savings into buying my first home, I needed an agent that I could trust completely and who would help me through all the details that I was so unfamiliar with. Joan was very patient with me, really listened to my needs and wants, and ultimately negotiated the best deal on the right place for me. 7 years later, she is still helping me with questions on property value, refinancing, and home improvements that increase resale. When I'm ready to sell, I will definitely hire Joan again!
