Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.
Jody is the BEST realtor in San Diego!!! I had the pleasure of working with Jody for almost 2 years. My husband and I were looking to buy a home in California on a limited budget. We had a few things that we really wanted and the flexibility to wait until we found it. Jody spent endless hours walking us through the entire process and showing us many properties. In the end, we found the PERFECT house! She is not the kind of realtor that just cares about the sale. She cares about finding the right school district for my son and finding outdoor space for my dog. She comes from a family of realtors and this work is in her blood. She's an expert on everything and she knows San Diego (and the surrounding communities) like the back of her hand. She provided us with not just a home, but morale support, peace of mind and a nice investment. Jody is kind-hearted, sharp, extremely knowledgeable, motivated, responsive and AMAZING! I highly recommend Jody to prospective buyers and sellers. SHE KNOWS HER STUFF!!!
Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Poway, CA.
My husband and I were tired of being renters for years and wanted to see if we could afford a small place of our own. With a baby on the way, we wanted to settle down if possible. We had no idea where to start but we were lucky to have gotten in touch with Jody through Zillow. She was extremely attentive from the very beginning, listening exactly to what we wanted vs. needed and taking time to explain every step to us. She was super easy to communicate with and has very fast response time. She was also extremely patient with us whenever we needed some time to make a decision. In addition, she was always pleasant and fun to be around so it made all those home buying appointments an enjoyable part of the process! With Jody's help, we were able to find and purchase our new home in just over one month! Thanks Jody!
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Lakeside, CA.
Jody helped me purchase my first condo and made it a very stress free experience. I never felt pressured into making a decision yet Realty Experts kept me well informed in order to make the best choice for my specific needs. She has great communication skills and was easy to get in touch with. All of my questions were answered very quickly! Jody was always able to accommodate my work schedule allowing me to meet at properties during my lunch break, late evenings or on weekends. I wasn't completely set on the city I wanted to buy in so Jody showed me properties all over San Diego County. All parties were in sync during my home buying process, thanks to Jody. I was able to close escrow in just 19 days!
From Canada, Jody helped my wife and I to purchase our first property in the states. She was a referral from our friends and got right to work for us. We soon learned how competitive the market was there and saw her use her expertise to negotiate a short sale purchase for us. Jody explained the short sale process and stayed in communication with us throughout the process so we felt comfortable as time passed. We felt extremely happy with the quality of property she found on our behalf, location, & amenities offered. She was always willing to go the extra mile which meant a lot as we were making this purchase from quite a distance. She kindly negotiated the refrigerator, washer, & dryer to be purchased on our behalf for an additional small sum of money so that we didn’t have to worry about the appliances. Jody has full knowledge of all the forms and the process so escrow went very smooth for us. The best part was that while we waited for short sale approval, housing prices were on the rise. So by the time we closed escrow, we actually already had equity! Thank you, Jody for all your help!! We highly recommend Jody as a top Realtor you can trust!
I have been using Jody Johnson of Realty Experts to rent out my condo in Rancho Bernardo (section of San Diego) for the past several years. I find Jody to be trustworthy, knowledgeable, dependable and an all around pleasure to deal with! She finds me tenants that are aware of the condo association rules, respect my property, and are able to pay the rent when due! I live back East now, and it is an excellent feeling to know that there is someone who will handle all the renters concerns and issues for me in an efficient manner. She will take care of what needs to be taken care of and let me know the outcome. She also had many contacts for repairs, cleaning, replacing, or whatever that save me a great deal of money. I would recommend Jody Johnson for your real estate needs in a heartbeat!
If you are thinking of buying or selling on your own, don't do it. You think you will save money or time but you won't. Call Jody and Mike instead. They know what they are doing and will keep you on track to meet your goal.
Jody and Mike helped us with a 1031 exchange. This meant we were selling and buying in a limited amount of time in order to avoid paying taxes. A totally legal transaction with lots of potential for stress. Jody and Mike were with us every step of the way - putting our rental condo on the market, negotiating with buying and selling agents, connecting us with a 1031 Asset Protection company, looking for & purchasing a new property, keeping in close contact with our lender agent (Ashley Mogavero) and helping us find a new renter.
Jody excelled at negotiating on our behalf. We had both buyers' and sellers' agents to talk with and Jody knew how to handle all of them. She gave us her expert advice from her many years of experience and we got more than our listing price for our sale and paid less than listing price for our purchase. She also negotiated us a credit from the seller.
I also want to mention that Jody and Mike are our friends, before and after working with them. Maybe you are afraid of mixing business with friendship but don't be. Jody and Mike are as real, honest and kind in their professional life as they are in their everyday life.
Buying and selling a home is a major decision. It's nice to have someone you can trust on your side who is knowledgeable and reliable. Jody and Mike Johnson were there for us and will be for you too.
Jody and Mike helped me easily go through a very difficult process. People are not joking when they say buying a home isn't easy. Jody used all of her many resources to help me and my soon to be bride into our first home. I would highly recommend to any family or friend buying a home for the first time. Despite me doing as much home buying research as I could, it's never seemed enough and that's where her expertise carried us through the process. Thanks Jody and Mike for opening the door to our future!
Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $425K in Poway, CA.
Jody was great!!! As first time home buyers, we really needed her help to introduce us into the process. She explained everything to us well and was always there for us whenever we needed her. She was easy to get a hold of by phone, email, or even in person anytime. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone !!!
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Oceanside, CA.
we started working with Reality Experts shortly after having a disappointing experience with a different realtor. We were referred to Jody Johnson through a mutual friend and we were very surprised0 to with Jodie's dedication and excitement about trying to help us locate a home. We looked for several months, and were starting to become discouraged with the market the way it was and the homes being bought out from under us with cash buyers. Jody never stopped being positive and always encouraging us to keep looking, she was truly dedicated to her job but more then that, she began to feel like one of our own family members as she witnessed our frustrations and family dynamics. Knowing that she stayed focused on our family's needs and that she wasn't just out to sell us any house in order to make a commission or a sale is what convinced us that she really cared about our needs. She took time to listen to us and worked very hard to accommodate, even at the expense of staying up late after she put her kids to bed, sacrificing her own family time. We finally found a house within our budget Thanks Jody & Mike!!
