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!
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
Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.3M in Palm Desert, CA.
Joan and her team have performed above and beyond w/ my Palm Desert rental and sale of my home! With her background and dedication, she made the process simple, concise, professional and actually quite delightful! I would never consult and/or hire anyone but Joan Castro!!!
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.
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.
