Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA.
Working with Jo and her team was a pleasure. She makes real estate easy, and knows Northeast LA inside & out. She was open and patient with us as we figured out what we wanted, and offered guidance when necessary. I would recommend Jo to anyone, and we will definitely work with her again in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Highland Park, Los Angeles, CA.
Jo is the best! My husband and I were first time home buyers and needed guidance. Jo walked us through every step of the way with kindness and patience. Then she showed us her real skills with her tough negotiation throughout the escrow process. I would highly recommend Jo O'key and the O'key group to anyone.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $425K in Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA.
We contacted Jo when we decided to purchase a small house or condo for our college-aged son who had just moved to Hollywood. Jo is very dedicated, had prompt responses to email and her group is very helpful throughout the entire process. From start to finish, it took about one month from when we contacted Jo to closing of escrow on a great little condo suitable for our son. We are experienced at home purchase and were able to move quickly once we had decided on the property. Not being familiar with the real estate market in the LA area, Jo's suggestion on the offer price and the counter after home inspection were spot on. Thank you for making this a very pleasant and smooth experience for our family.
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $900K in North Hollywood, North Hollywood, CA.
We just wanted to say thank you again! You found our dream home and made it happen...TWICE! We can't even believe it. We are never leaving our new backyard ever again. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! We feel like we should be using cheesy pick up lines like "did it hurt when you fell from heaven?" and such to describe how lucky we feel that you are our agent.
I am an attorney practicing for 25 years in Chicago and needed assistance selling a difficult property my family inherited in Los Angeles. With no real contacts in the area, we found Jo O'Key through the internet. I have a lot of experience in real estate deals in Chicago and my general experience with brokers is that they find you a buyer, then disappear and show up at the closing to collect their commission. My experience with the O'Key Group (Jo O'Key and Sara Carroll to be specific) was exactly the opposite. Not only did they find me a buyer in 1 day at a price that exceeded our wildest imagination given the condition of the house, they actively worked with me throughout the process to see it through to closing. When I say they actively worked with me, I mean it. Without their assistance, this deal would not have closed, and/or, I would have had to make a minimum of three more separate trips out to California. Since I was in Chicago, I relied heavily on them to help me get things done. They hired and met the locksmith when the doors could not be opened. They hired and met the inspector, because the state mandates the inspection. They hired and met the remediator when the inspection showed the property needed plumbing upgrades. Not only did they hire these contractors for me, they priced it out to get me the best deal, and kept me in the loop the entire time. The paperwork for the closing was sent to me via e-mail, and, using Docusign, I was able to conduct virtually the entire transaction through e-mail. They also helped counsel me and negotiate to keep the sale price higher when the buyers requested discounts. I have never been more impressed with a broker than I have been with the O'Key Group. I cannot imagine a broker doing a better job than they did on this transaction. I highly recommend them!!
When I first spoke to Jo from the O'Key group, I liked her up-beat, go-getter attitude right away. She was knowledgeable about the area in question and was able to think out of the box to get us a great deal on the property we wanted to buy. Her team have been really helpful and always fast to respond and help us above and beyond their regular "duties". I would recommend Jo to anyone looking to buy or sell a house!
Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $925K in Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, CA.
I've bought and sold a few homes and had yet to find a perfect realtor. Jo and her team are absolutely amazing and made us feel like of her many clients we were the, her top priority.
We definitely know we have found a permanent real-estate partner who has our best interests at heart and executes beyond expectation through entire process.
Jo helped list and sell a home we loved in a extremely short period of time, and her expertise in the market got us 2 things that other had said were not going to happen. Multiple offers in a matter of days, and we got above asking. Jo also helped us get the house of our dreams, at a price that others had said "Not Going To Happen"
Amazing professional Who Actually Delivers above and beyond the promise!!

I would definitely recommend anyone buying a home to work with the O'Key group! Not only were the staff responsive, knowledgeable, and attention detailed, but they were supportive, friendly, and caring. Jo helped us through every step and when items changed, she was right there explaining and notifying us of the process. I felt assured that she had our best interests at hand and was able to deliver a great home buying experience. We were connected to great referrals to support us in completing the process and through out the time working with the entire O'Key group they felt like family! Overall, I very much enjoyed working with everyone and will use them again for any purchase or sale.
