I feel very fortunate to have had Juan as my RE agent.
I found a For Sale By Owner on Zillow and I called Juan to ask about it. The property was not listed on the MLS and the intermediary person that had it for sale on Zillow was having a few buyers coming to look at it on the same day, around the same time.
Having Juan to see it with me and to advise and on it helped a lot. Not only I was the one getting the deal but Juan negotiated a lot of deductions on my behalf.
The agent's fee and both the buyer's and the seller's closing costs were originally asked to be payed by me on top of the negotiated price. Juan got the seller to pay his part of the closing costs and commissions out of the price as well.
On top of it all he even convinced them to hire a cleaning company so I got the place totally cleaned by closing. I am very happy with the whole deal. I was very lucky to benefit from Juan's knowledge, negotiating skills, prompt response and extensive experience.
Sold a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $200K in Orlando, FL.
Juan sold our home back in 2008. If I could use only two words to describe Juan, it would be 'seasoned' and 'personable'. Since I can use more than two words, I must say that Juan made the whole experience very pleasant. When you're selling your home, there is a lot of anxiety because your timing and decisions make a difference of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars, and the factors are too many to really feel confident in your decision. Jaun's personable nature made us feel welcome to ask all the questions and propose all the scenarios we had. His realistic attitude combined with his broad scope of the knowledge made us feel confident in our decisions. The results was a 5 week home selling experience from start to finish and a $60,000 profit. Thank you Juan!

Thank you for the kind words. I was honored to help you during this transition time!
Juan was extremely knowledgeable, attentive, and organized throughout the whole process of selling our home. He was able to advise us every step of the way and was always available for questions. I could call him any time of day and know he would get back to me within the hour. Juan made this process so much smoother than I anticipated it to be, from the consultation to the final closing. I would absolutely call Juan again in the future for any other real estate services we may need.

Five stars are way too few to use in evaluating Juan Castro’s performance as a Realtor. His experience, dedication and hard work definitely speak volumes about the great job he does. If I were to rank him, all of the stars in the sky would not begin to be enough! That is just how excellent he is at what he does.
I am transitioning to the East coast from the West. Juan has been a critical facilitator in that difficult and complex process since the very beginning. From the moment I met him, I knew I was dealing with a highly intelligent person. He not only stayed in constant communication with me but also did everything within his reach to make me feel safe during my transition.
Juan is the kind of realtor that will look for what is good for you and not for what serves his own interest. He will go the extra mile to make sure his clients get a fair deal and that no money is wasted. From the beginning of our business relationship, he was very honest when providing all of his information. He did not make up stories just to close a deal with me. He worked with real facts and he spoke the truth.
Nowadays, those are characteristics that I value a lot in people, given the crazy world we live in. It is rare to find people that—no matter what profit they might make—value human relationships above anything else. That is exactly the kind of person Juan Castro is: honest, considerate, helpful and trustworthy.
Over the course of my business transactions, I have faced many challenges. Juan has been the person to go to for answers. He navigates the rough economic waters of our time with ease and professionalism. He wears many different hats, and all of them well. He can be a friend when you need him to be. He can be a broker, a banking and financial advisor, a city planner, a weather man, or anything else he sets out to be…all on his clients’ behalf.
The caliber of his performance is immense.

If you have Juan Castro on your side, he will help you find the perfect home. He will help you find the home that's just right for you and will work hard for you until you close and have the key in your hand. He is on your side!
Helped me rent a Single Family home in Orlando, FL.
Juan consistently provides excellent customer service and expert level domain knowledge of the Orlando rel estate market. He was able to find a great rental home for my wife and I in 2009 and we haven't moved since! I would recommend Juan to anyone looking for the best!

Thank you! I consider myself very fortunate to work with clients such as you and your wife. I am very pleased that you enjoy where you are living!
Sold a home in 2004 in Litchfield Hundred, Roswell, GA 30075.
Juan is a "professional" in every sense of the word. He takes the time to understand the requirements of his client and executes with urgency. I was very impressed by his positive attitude and how he kept me informed every single step of the way. I never had to followup with him or wonder what was happening. He is ambitious and will work endlessly to ensure the property is sold. I highly recommend Juan as an agent.
