    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.225M in Palm Desert, CA.

    Joan takes care of everything when you work with her, no hassles or added stress. She is extremely detail orientated and a great negotiator (fair and balanced). We enjoyed working with her and are happy with our end selling result.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.375M in Palm Desert, CA.

    We would not have bought our home without Joan's tremendous follow-up. She is an excellent listener, fun to work with and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Joan as your Palm Desert realtor, she will truly help you find exactly what you are looking for & do it in gracious way. I highly recommend Joan and I am thankful for her help in finding our new home. I'd give her 5 stars on negotiation skills too, but I am married to the best negotiator around. Together they really made great things happen!

    Bought a home in 2013.

    Joan is a true professional in this industry. Her services were of top quality in all respects. She was available to work us at any hour of the day or night throughout this process. She had to deal with a difficult seller's representative and there were many serious issues. Even after the deal closed and we moved into our new home, Joan offered her assistance to help us get indoctrinated into our home and the country club. As indicated above, we would highly recommend Joan to any interested buyer or seller.

    Sold a home in 2013.

    My husband and I were very happy with our services from Joan Castro and would highly recommended using her again.

    Our home had been on the market a long time before we listed with Joan Castro. She re-staged the home and sold it within a month.

    Thank you Joan!

    Helped me rent a home.

    My wife and I had several realators working on properties for us in the La Quinta to Rancho Mirage golf communities. Joan was the best of all. Professional, guick-to-the-point and helped us make the right decision. I highly recommend Joan Castro to everyone.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Palm Desert, CA.

    She was very knowledgeable in the area, her responsiveness was very quick, and she did extra research for us and helped us so much in so many ways. We highly recommend her.

    Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $325K in Palm Desert, CA.

    Joan Castro is, without a doubt, a spectacular real estate broker. She is a mover and a shaker and gets the job done in a very professional and highly skilled manner. After my house was on the market for 1 year with other brokers ( and not a single offer ), I hired Joan and what a refreshing change. For a very modest cost, she staged the house, developed a first class set of photographs/brochures, and sold the house the very first day it was on the market. I got two offers for more than the listing price, both coming in for all cash and an 18 day escrow. Eighteen days later escrow closed. Hooray for Joan!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $725K in Palm Desert, CA.

    I am a real estate attorney with almost 40 years of experience and have dealt with both commercial as well as residential brokers during my career. Joan Castro is without a question the best broker I have ever dealt with in my many years of my law practice. Joan's services as my broker went far beyond the responsibilities of a broker. She has a vast knowledge of not only the market but an array of other service professionals to assist any purchaser with any improvements or repairs needed in any home. Joan has made me a life long fan as she is the consummate real estate broker who sets the standard for others to follow.

    Joan is the best. Second experience was just as good as the first several years ago. She really cares about her clients.
