Blessed to have J.J. represent us when we sold our home!
We feel so blessed that we had J.J. and his team represent us when we decided to sell our home. J.J. came highly recommended to us by a close friend. As soon as we met with him, he impressed us with his knowledge of the real estate market. He was incredibly friendly and easy to work with, and the team behind him was first class. They were on top things throughout the entire process - helping us get our house on the market much sooner than we could have ever expected, always made themselves available, were prompt with all the paperwork, and very helpful when it came to answering all our questions. Thanks to J.J. we sold our home for well over the listing price - much higher than we expected. I would strongly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling.
We just closed escrow on a property for our daughter. Dealing with JJ was a blessing. With all the drama that comes in a home purchase, JJ made it as painless as possible. He was always immediately responsive, developing documents and advised of issues in a way that made me feel I was his only client. In addition his vast knowledge of appraisal and real estate provides an accurate understanding of any deal. Thank you JJ.
JJ is great. Finding a house in a very competitive market is not an easy task. JJ is very professional, as well as personal, patient, and an excellent support system. It took us several years to find the right place for us. He kept us apprised about available appointments and always let us know as soon as a new property came on the market. JJ has been there every step of the way. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. JJ’s help didn’t end with the closing. He helped us find contractors, gardeners, and other local vendors. Being apartment dwellers prior to this purchase, we found this part of the process a bit overwhelming. JJ’s support made the transition less stressful. We now consider JJ a friend and would highly recommend him to anyone that is searching for a new home. Thanks again JJ for being such a pleasure to work with.
JJ and his business partner were more than helpful to us in our search for the perfect home when we decided to relocate to the Santa Barbara area. His knowledge of the industry, resources and the area made our transaction seamless. We appreciate his quick response to any query. In fact, he continues to be a helpful resource to us with all of our new-to-the-area needs.
J.J. was a very professional and kind help when we searched for a property in Santa Barbara, also during the Due Diligence process as well as Escrow. Even after the property was bought, his support level was very high, he was always reachable, and for any challenge we found a solution together. You are in best hands when buying a property with J.J.
