Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $525K in Folsom, CA.
AJ listed and sold our home that we had to sell after it became too large when our kids grew up and moved out. This was not an easy process for us since we still loved the house and really didn't want to move. This, of course, posed a real challenge for our Realtor-AJ. He gave us great insight into how to prepare the house for viewings, what to keep-what to remove, and listed the house with many great pictures for internet shoppers.

The market was described as a "seller's market" just before we listed it. Since we missed that blip in time, our anticipated value of it continued to diminish. Each time we needed to drop the price to bring in an offer, AJ talked to us and carefully explained what was driving the market down. He provided us with local comps, showed us the recent sales in our area, and we always felt confident that his advice was not based on him just wanting to make a sale/commission, but rather, he was trying to avoid our listing from appearing stale-or the appearance that there was something wrong with out home.

To add to all this, our style of house along with the type of yard we had, made our listing particularly difficult to sell. We needed to find that one perfect buyer. AJ continually gave us feedback from showings, held open houses and kept our house current on all of the most popular websites. If our frustration with the selling experience arose, AJ always kept us motivated that he would get our home sold.

As expected, AJ did sell our house to pre-approved buyers. AJ scheduled every mandatory inspection and appointment at our convenience and everything with the sale and closing went smoothly and without a catch.

I always keep a few of AJ's cards with me so that I can easily recommend him and his services to people I meet and realize they need a Realtor. I highly recommend AJ Powers and we will use him when we are ready to buy again. I suggest that you use him too-you will not be disappointed!

Bought a home in 2014.
The process of buying a home can be a daunting task with many variables to be considered with each decision made. So when my wife and I got serious about buying a home I knew we would need the help of an excellent real estate agent.

AJ Powers fully exceeded our expectations! He came highly recommended to us from several different parties. From our first correspondence to our last, each discussion felt comfortable, productive, encouraging and easy. His knowledge of the market is excellent. He is extremely responsive and is truly an expert in all aspects of his trade.

We were most impressed by AJ's effective communication skills. He just knows how to get things done and make it happen! When he called to give us updates, the content was always informative. When we hit a bump in the road, he always had a fantastic solution in mind. He is very accommodating. AJ has a firm understanding of his clients needs and understands how to effectively communicate with other agents to keep things moving.

AJ is an amazing resource when it comes to being a real estate professional. He connected us with an excellent lender and collaborated with all parties involved along the way to insure our experience was a positive success.

There is no doubt that I WILL utilize AJ for every future real estate transaction.

I highly recommend AJ Powers to everyone that needs an excellent real estate agent and who is looking for an experience like mine! A++++++!!! Even if you have worked with another agent before, unless your experience was as excellent as mine, I recommend you work with AJ Powers.

Bought a home in 2014.
AJ is hands down the most professional and rightfully-confident realtor San Diego County has to offer. He’s a guy that you would only hope to find in that time where you’re ready to pull the trigger on your new dream home. While searching for my first home I had worked briefly with 2 other agents who made it painstaking. Lets just say that putting in offers at 10 pm that had no chance then getting my hopes up was not what I signed up for. Just when I was about to give up I unexpectedly met AJ. He let me know he was available to help and he just so happened to know one of my hometown friends. Whoever said networking didn’t work? I gave him a shot and from then on my home search was FUN. I didn’t think that kicking things off over a golf game was typical but neither was how fast and efficiently he closed my new home!

On the first day I was getting an email feed with listings that were 10 times better with the same budget. The best part, I could email, text, call him whenever I saw something interesting. Immediate responses with valuable, professional guidance are what followed. As a first time home buyer I don’t think I could have received a better education along the way. He kept everything clean and simple and didn’t contact me with anything other than “next action steps.” He’s got great relationships in the profession and I know I would have had a much more drawn out experience without them. He also has a wingman. A Loan Officer named Samuel Beckett who was a clear and effective master of getting to the “Loan Docs” phase. What I like most is that they worked as a team to verify EVERYTHING before giving the good news. So all I was hearing from AJ was... good news. This is a great law of customer service and satisfaction because the client< me moved throughout the Escrow process with complete confidence. To top it off, I’m now planning my housewarming party on the house! Literally. I would recommend my friends and family to contact him wether buying or selling because AJ knows it all! Thank you for all the hard work AJ!

Bought a home in 2013.
AJ was extremely knowledgeable in finding the perfect home for me. We looked for several months to find the property that was right for me. He was essential in finding the right lender to work my loan and pulled everything together. This sale would not have happened without him.

He is very patient, attentive, and enthusiastic. I will certainly recommend him to anyone I know interested in purchasing a home.

Bought a home in 2013.
My experience working with AJ was very positive. Especially considering it was very difficult time for buying a home (seller's market with a lot of competing buyers and rapidly rising prices) it was essential to have a good realtor who is available and responsive when needed. I was mostly impressed by the responsiveness to any inquiries and the lack of any pressure to make decisions or just a quick deal. I can sincerely recommend him to anyone buying or selling, and wouldn't hesitate to use his services in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Fair Oaks, CA.
I purchased my home in February of 2012 and could not be happier with the home that I purchased. I started looking to buy a home at the end of 2010 and discovered I needed to make some adjustments and improvements to my credit report and score. AJ was very helpful in giving me advice and directing me to the right people who could further instruct me as to what I needed to do to raise my score that last little amount. He was very patient, not only in waiting for me to take care of the requirements the bank would need, but also in showing me countless numbers of homes until I finally decided on my current property in which he helped me acquire an FHA 203k loan. He was able to help negotiate the price of the home down almost 30k so that I had that same amount to be able to put back into the home for repairs and improvements. I would strongly recommend AJ to anyone looking for an agent who will give you honest guidance, but also knows the industry inside and out and has experience beyond his years.
