Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $475K in La Mesa, CA.
In a nutshell Joe Southwick is awesome! My husband and I have known Joe for over 22yrs. and words like professional, honesty, integrity, efficient, highly knowledgeable, respectful and pleasant come to mind. He has sold and purchased multiple properties for us through the years. Most recently Team Southwick sold some inherited rental properties for me which had several tough and difficult marketing obstacles. Joe and Cheryl handled everything efficiently, always calm, always patient and completed the sales with very little input from me thank goodness. Cheryl is delightful with great marketing skills, and a real chip off the old block! We would highly recommend Team Southwick to anyone if you want the best!

Joe made the entire process seem effortless and that was essential considering how stressful it can be for a first time home seller.Throughout the process Joe was a calming influence when shifts and changes to the original agreement occurred, his consul allowed for clear decision making.
There is no substitute for experience and it was apparent from open house, offers counter offers to closing that I was in good hands. Selling ones home is a major life challenge and working with someone who is ethical and trustworthy is of paramount importance. Joe proved to be a consumate professional always going the extra mile.
I would highly recommend him to family, friends or anyone in the market of buying or selling real estate.
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $375K in Mira Mesa, San Diego, CA.
Mr. Southwick most recently helped us sell a house in the Mira Mesa area of San Diego in 2013. The house had been a rental and needed some work before it could be sold to bring us the most money. He gave us some recommendations as to what we should do to fix it up for sale and then referred us to an excellent contractor who did the work to perfection. It needed some foundation work and once again Mr. Southwick provided us with several contractor recommendations and the one I chose performed the work very well. Within the last 11 years or so we have used Mr. Southwick's services to sell 3 homes used as rentals and to purchase 2 homes. He is very personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend him and his staff when buying or selling a house.
Joe Southwick was in the process of selling a good friends home years before and I was very impressed with his friendliness and courtesy. When I finally admitted I could no longer afford to stay in my home, underwater and behind on payments, I contacted Joe and requested a meeting. Joe remembered me, though years later, and discussed my options in a easy to understand way, without pressure. After measuring options, we sold my home in a timely manner, with utmost respect and courtesy from the Southwick team, and at a surprising profit. I would recommend Team Southwick to anyone hoping for a strong, honest effort in buying or selling a home.
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $225K in La Mesa, CA.
Joe helped me purchase a home in 2012 and the service was great. Joe and his team made the process easy and they were professional, pleasant and kept all their commitments. I would recommend Joe and his team to anyone.
We first met Joe 20 years ago as the agent representing the seller when we purchased our first house. We were so impressed with his honesty, professionalism and thoughtfulness that we have used him (and now Cheryl, too) to represent us when we decided to sell, and when it was time to sell both our parents' homes. Every time, Joe was there, always accessible, always patient, always calm -- even during the most stressful and emotional times during the process. Always the voice of reason and logic when the inevitable tough decisions need to made, he always provided us research and wise counsel to help us though. Along with a great sense of humor. Both he and Cheryl are simply a delight to work with. When the time comes to make another move, their number will be the one we call.
Represented as a buyer by both Joe and Cheryl. Highly knowledgeable and efficient and really strives to best advise and guide clients. I've worked with other agents and encountered many only looking to make a buck not invested in their clients needs or wants. Team Southwick is a class act and I wouldn't work with anyone else.

Prior to meeting with me to discuss the listing of my home, Joe and Cheryl did extensive research on my home and the surrounding neighborhood. Not only did they drive the neighborhood multiple of times to get a real sense of the market but they met with me personally to let me know what I needed to do to improve the value of my home before placing it on the market. Once we listed the home, Joe and Cheryl, regularly updated me on showings, offers and comments from those that viewed the home. Once we received the offers, Joe sat down with me to review every offer and fully explain to me the pros and cons of each offer. Once we went into escrow, Joe and Cheryl, provided me with all of the escrow and inspection information as well as kept me up to date we my lender. They were very hands on and proactive throughout the entire process. Joe and Cheryl kept everyone on schedule and made sure everything was done right the first time. Once we closed escrow the team made sure the keys and all paperwork were delivered to the buyer. It was probably the smoothest transaction I've ever experienced and I have no doubt it's because of Joe and Cheryl's attention to detail, drive and passion they exert for what they do on a daily basis.

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting our realtor, Joe Southwick, 25 years ago when we were buying and selling a home. He has kept in touch with us through all these years. Our son and daughter-in-law used Joe as their realtor when they purchased their first home six years ago and they couldn't have been happier. When it came time for us to sell our home this past Fall, we contacted Joe again and he and Cheryl and their team assisited us in selling our home in El Cajon and buying our new home in Carlsbad. We couldn't have been more impressed with the excellent service they provided. Both Cherly and Joe were ALWAYS available to answer our questions and walk us through the process of buying and selling. We would highly recommend Team Southwick to anyone!!!
