Team reviews

As first-time homebuyers, we were so comforted knowing we had Angie and Joan looking out for us every step of the way. As many buyers in the Lamorinda area know, it is a competitive market out there and we were outbid multiple times. Instead of letting us get discouraged and settle on a home that didn’t meet those top 3-5 “must have’s” on our list, Angie and Joan had the optimism and endurance to keep our 12+ month home shopping experience positive. Never letting us settle, we ultimately landed in the home that was truly meant to be. Once we finally heard the words “You’re in escrow”, Angie and Joan gave us every tool we needed, from booking inspections, questions around financing, and meeting every deadline along the way, to keep us on track. Being Lamorinda natives, they are incredibly knowledgeable of the area. They have great relationships with other agents and often had the inside scoop on those coveted pocket listings. In addition, they had the experience and insight to answer all of our questions that came up during the home buying process. We would absolutely recommend Angie and Joan to anyone in the market to buy a new home.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $1.125M in Orinda, CA.

Joan Evans was our realtor for our recent home purchase in Orinda. We did not know the Lamorinda area at all or even the type of house we wanted when we started our home search. Joan was very nice and took us to view 11 homes during our first meeting. From these visits, we learned what we were looking for in our next home. We found a home pretty quickly and went back and forth with the sellers. Joan was actively involved in the negotiation process. Joan referred us to a broker/loan agent who helped us with our financing. When our offer was accepted, Joan provided referrals for all the appraisers we needed to evaluate the condition of the house. Because we were out of the area, Joan scheduled the appraisals appointments and was often present during these inspections. Joan explained the findings of these inspections to us. Joan also followed up with the city to get official documents about the property. Throughout the purchase process, Joan reassured us about what to expect and supported our decisions. Once we bought the house, this is where most realtors end their work. Not Joan. Being new to the area, we had numerous questions about community resources. Joan provided us with names of local dentists, doctors, plumbers, handymen, whatever we asked. If she did not have the answer, she asked her colleagues for suggestions. It has been five months since we bought our house, and Joan is still available and willing to answer any question we have. We realized that if Lamorinda has residents like Joan, then this is a wonderful community and a place we want to raise our children. We feel really fortunate to have had Joan as our realtor. Joan is an excellent realtor, but more importantly she is a wonderful and kind person.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $825K in Moraga, CA.

We were so lucky to have Joan as our listing agent. After a lot of soul searching, my 83-year-old mother decided it was time to sell her beloved family house in Moraga, where she and my dad lived for over 40 years, and move to a retirement community. Joan priced the house perfectly. She was able to get the most for my mom and sell the house quickly. She was so patient and lovely with my mom and wonderful to work with. She was sensitive to deadlines with the move and helpful regarding all that is involved with emptying a family home. She is a great communicator, upbeat and caring. I highly recommend Joan. She is a savvy agent and a wonderful person.  More Less
