John has helped us buy our home while living overseas. I could not have asked for a more responsive and knowledgeable agent. He has answered every question, and was available even at very early morning hours for him, to accommodate us. He has gone out of his way to make sure every detail was taken care of from home and pool inspections to utilities and everything inbetween.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Escondido, CA.

John did an outstanding job representing the sale of our home in Escondido CA. He was there for every inspection and coordinated all the visits of other realtors showing the property. He respected all of our constraints for showing our property in our absence (we had quite a few for we have puppies and kitty’s and no children so our animals were of most importance and I had some usual projects that needed to be watched during showing so no one would touch anything). Our sale ended up being quite challenging for it turned into a tri-fold contingency – the selling of our house to our buyers was contingent upon their buyers selling their house which was contingent upon the sale of our buyers, buyers, buyers house. John coordinated the complete event with all parties and made sure all documents and closings were in a concise sequential order such that when the first domino started to fall – all things fell into place perfectly. John would give us nearly daily updates as to the current status of all parties. My wife and I had moved out of our house before the first event and John took care of our property in our absence – coordinated all last minute contingent events (i.e. septic inspection and repair, replacement of some damaged wood to meet termite inspection constraints, and unscheduled final inspections. John even funded some of the last minute unplanned events out of his commission to keep us from hafting to pay additional unplanned cost at closing… On top of all of that – John used the latest legal software so all the documents that were need were all available on line to be process by electronic signatures – which made it very easy on us to keep up on all the forms and documents required by the state of CA – which is nearly overwhelming… John also has a outstanding disposition – and I am not easy to work with – but he was always understanding of my frustrations with the California constraint, regulations, inspections, and forms and saw me through the process even when I would have to told me to pound sand if I was him… I could not recommend a person higher than I do for John… I recommend if you are selling you property – get with John!!!

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Poway, CA.

When we decided to put our rental home in Poway on the market, we knew it was imperative that we find someone trustworthy to represent us because we live across the country and would not be able to be there in person to oversee the sale. John and JoAnne more than exceeded all of our expectations. They were extremely professional and attentive throughout the entire process. They kept us well-informed, answered all of our questions, and helped us to feel at ease. When we put the house on the market we had renters in the home who were not always very agreeable, but John was able to get them to warm up to the process and work with us to get the house sold. In our wildest dreams, we never imagined that we would get an offer on the house after the first day of showings and move into escrow less than a week after we put it on the market, but that is exactly what happened! Thirty days later, we have officially closed on the home. The entire process went along without a hitch all thanks to the dedicated and hard work of John and JoAnne of O'Rourke Realty. We enthusiastically recommend them for all of your real estate needs. :)

Bought a home in 2014 in Clairemont Mesa East, San Diego, CA 92117.

Working with John was a pleasure. As a first time home buyer, I was hesitant to commit to a purchase but he was patient and professional. He guided me step-by-step through the process from day one. Most importantly, he has a great personality which lets you that he is not just a real estate agent but a good guy in general. I highly recommend working with him!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Rancho Penasquitos, San Diego, CA.

We have known the O'Rourke family for some time thru the hockey program. When we were ready to sell our home we knew we wanted to use John and JoAnne. They did a fantastic job from helping to stage our home to signing the last documents. They made sure that escrow stayed on track and our home was sold in 2 days with a 30 day escrow. We were moving out of state and they made sure everything went smoothly. They gave us exceptional service. John & Beth

Sold a home in 2014.

We have known the O'Rourke family for years thru hockey programs. When the time came to sell our home, we knew we wanted to list with John and JoAnne. They are a full service realtor from staging our house to signing the last documents. They were there every step of way. Our home sold in 2 days. We couldn't be more pleased. John & Beth Bales

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $375K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.

John and Joanne were referred to us by a commercial real estate agent in California who happened to be the nephew of my friend in Connecticut. Faced with the daunting challenge of moving across the country it was refreshing to have John who made the trip over twenty years ago be able to provide us with his insight. From the start John provided us with examples of homes in the San Diego area that were compatible with our needs and within our price range. That enabled my brother Tony to travel to California in April and choose the general area of our purchase. John graciously gave of his time to show Tony all the areas and the local sights. Between April and October John continued to provide us with potential properties which allowed me to travel to California in October to purchase our new home. If there are better realtors and better persons than John and his wife Joanne, I have not yet made their acquaintance. I would highly recommend them especially if you are making the long cross country trip. Steve Pavlich

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $675K in Escondido, CA.

John and JoAnne not only helped to find an investment property but also a renter to move in right after closing. During the process we benefitted from their profound knowledge of the area as well as guiding us making the right decisions. Every question we raised was either answered immediately or with little time lag. Support was felt all the time. Overall it was a stress free and low effort experience. We certainly recommend John and JoAnne for all of your real estate needs.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $600K in Rancho Bernardo, San Diego, CA.

Both John and JoAnne worked very hard and went above and beyond what any past realtor has done for me. Selling a house and buying a new one is a complicated and difficult process, and they tried to keep it simple for me. I really appreciate everything they did, and I would highly recommend them to anyone!

Thanks, John and JoAnne!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Escondido, CA.

My wife and I were blessed to have had John and JoAnne as our Realtors. They were dedicated in making our process of buying a home, a pleasant experience. With over 40 years in the Real Estate industry experience between them, they were very thorough, and kept us in the loop at every stage of the way. They found special ways to make us feel at ease by not only answering the easy questions that a person would expect a realtor to know, but doing the research and getting back to us promptly.

Mimi and I really appreciated the extra personal touches that they did, sealing our faith and belief that they care about their clients, and work to prove that at every second of the day. Your knowledge and experience is greatly admired. Thank you John and JoAnne, for everything you've done for our family!

Best Regards,

-Gene & Mimi
