Joele was amazing to work with. First she found us our dream home and then negotiated diligently to beat out two other offers. I know how hard and long she worked for us and I am so grateful. She doesn't take NO for an answer and will work very hard on behalf of you, her client. And a bonus too, you probably will end up being friends with her because she is so great to work with.Catherine
Joele assisted me in negotiating the purchase of my first house. After much frustration with my former agent who was unable to negotiate an affordable offer (my former agent recommended I pay full ask), I decided to contact Joele. She immediately contacted the listing agent, and before the day was over, she had managed to negotiate a stellar deal where I ended up paying well below asking price. In fact, after the appraisal came in, we found out that the purchase price she negotiated was even less than the appraisal (very rare). Joele continued to be of assistance during escrow, carefully reading through all the agreements and "going to bat" for me when some defects were found during the inspection process. Joele handled everything and made what is normally a very stressful process, exponentially more manageable. I couldn't have asked for a better agent.Mike
JOJO helped me purchase my home and she was very professional, truly cared about me and my family requirement and that she made the process very easy for us. I will recommend her to all my friend whenever they need a real estate broker.Hugh
She is very personable, and down to earth. Listens to clients and helps them find what they truly want. Showed me several properties. Will go to bat for you if issues arise.
Jojo and Jim (Watson team) were a real pleasure to work. Their in depth knowledge of the market, neighborhoods, and potential buyers is superb, and resulted in a record sale for us early this year and still a record for our neighborhood. They cut through the noise and identify the key and critical elements of a listing, potential buyers, and their negotiation radar was right on point. Highly recommend them!Angel Narvaez
Jojo sold my home for me in early 2016. It was a pleasure to work with her and her team. I am thankful for the way she handled the transaction from beginning to end. Because of some unique circumstances we had a couple of buyers fall out of escrow. This gave my wife and I a chance to experience the complete value of her service. She was an expert from beginning to end and gave us great guidance in things like repairs to make, negotiating the terms of the agreement, advertising the property, etc. I would highly recommend Jojo. She's great and you will be very happy with her service.John
We have listed and quickly sold two homes within the last 4 years with Joele and Jim Watson. They were professional, and treated our family and our home with great respect. They always kept our home secure. They were easy to communicate with - ALWAYS. And they kept in constant contact with us. They made a point to understand our expectations for the sales process, and put our needs first in every way, with never a question. They even helped secure a transitional rental home for us. They handled negotiations with the other brokers beautifully, as well. It was very clear that the other brokers respected them and enjoyed working with them. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell their home.
I had a great experience working with Anthony. He was very responsive when we first reached out to him. He made himself available to meet almost immediately. He was very patient and really listened as we explained what we were interested in. His knowledge of the market was quite impressive and helped a great deal in our decision making. He was very professional as well as personable. He clearly cares about his clients and gave us a feeling of confidence through the whole process.
My fiance and myself have been in the market to buy a home. Anthony helped us by sharing his knowledge of the Southern California area with us and explained which areas would be best suited for our budget. I highly recommend his services to anyone due to his professional and charismatic attitude.Mathew Maione
We used Joele and Jim to sell our house in Turtle Ridge a few months ago. They were both great to work with. They were friendly in a sincere way and had lots of advice for us. They helped us get it ready to sell and were so accommodating with our schedules. Our house sold within two weeks with a short escrow. They followed through on everything and made sure that the escrow ran smoothly. The only bad thing about the experience was that it was over so quickly we didn't get a chance to know them better.Kelly Bosley
JoJo was great to work with! She was very responsive, professional and sold our home in less time than we had expected. I would highly recommend especially in the higher end home market.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Joele & her team in summer 2013. We were looking for a home specifically in the Turtle Ridge community. We had been searching for several months prior to meeting Joele. We met her and her team at an open house she was holding. Because of her knowledge, professionalism, and friendliness we felt that she was the person to work with. Her intimate knowledge of that community and perseverance to find us the right home enabled us to purchase the home of our dreams and get it for the right price. We truly appreciate everything she and her team did for us! If and when we should ever sell our home there is no question we would use her again.
I first met Jojo at one of her open houses. I was just starting to think about moving and was curious about the Turtle Ridge community in Irvine. What impressed me immediately about Jojo was how knowledgeable she is about the properties, models, floor plans, residents and the neighborhood in general. As we began working with her more closely, I soon learned that she was also has a wide network of relationships with buyers and sellers in the community, and an inventory of private pocket listings. She was very unique in this regard among other agents we met, and this proved to be a very valuable asset in our search for a new home. We were looking to buy at a time when inventory was at an all-time low, and we had requirements that were difficult to find. Jojo worked very hard to find us properties to view – she even went out of her way to inquire about unlisted properties she knew we would like to see if the owners would be interested in selling. Because of her strong relationship networks she was able to show us numerous properties, and one turned out to be the home we ultimately purchased.
Due to the low inventory, we were looking for a while before Jojo found us the perfect place. Throughout the process, Jojo was always pleasant, helpful. patient, and very responsive to our needs. She was always available, never pushy - and showed us any property we wanted to see (and there were many...). When the right one came along, she worked her magic to get our offer accepted over other competitive offers.
Now that we are in our new home, we still keep in touch. Jojo continues to be helpful with recommendations for contractors, service people, etc. When it came to selling our former home, there was no question who we wanted to represent us. We have also referred Jojo to friends interested in buying and selling. In short, you couldn't ask for a better agent to be your advocate in buying or selling a home.
Joele and Jim are a team. You get two experienced agents focused on getting the best price possible for your house.
Don't waste your time with unexperienced people. Give them a call.
As a husband, father of two and business owner, buying a premium home in an upwardly mobile neighborhood was a scary prospect. We did not just buy a house, we bought into a neighborhood and lifestyle. The numbers were big and the intensity was high. Despite the complexity of our transaction, Jim and Jojo managed with a calm demeanor and always had our best interests at heart - even when it meant possibly stepping away from our transaction. WIth us, they planned well, negotiated strong and gave advice that was practical, without feeding into the emotion of the deal (which is easy to do when buying a house for yourself).
In my past real estate transactions, my tendency was to treat a home purchase as a transaction. I looked (and took the time) to find the cheapest price. With Jim and Jojo Watson, i paid fair market rates, but I got significant value in terms of home value and timing of my deal. If our deal fell behind, I can point to several hundred thousand of value I would have lost. I have family in the real estate business and could have saved money on "fees", but the commission I paid to Jim and Jojo I would happily do again because of the value we accumulated in our transaction - from identifying the right house and the right deal.
There are a lot of faces and names in the real estate market, and the truth is, you will never really know if you got your best deal unless you have a team you can trust, in both spirit and skill. Jim and Jojo are solid in both of those areas, and have earned the testimonial from me and my family.
I found a partnership with professionals who understood my needs and helped me buy the house we wanted, not the house they wanted to sell. I also met a team that will be able to consult me and my family in our future real estate investments.Amit Kothari
My experience with Joele was how highly professional she was in handling all parties. She went out of her way to make sure we all felt comfortable. She was very sincere and so hardworking - it was a pleasure working with her. She gets the job done!
Joele is as good as they come if you need help buying or selling property in her service areas. In the past 6 months, I have done 2 sales and 2 purchases with Joele and her team and could not be more pleased or impressed.
In both sales, we were able to get record or near-record pricing for the tract.
On the buy side, we were able to find unique properties before they hit the active market, thus avoiding competition.
From a personal standpoint, Joele is energetic, responsive and caring.
You will be happy you called her.
Joele is one of the nicest and most kind agent we have ever worked with. She was very sensitive to our time constraints and accommodated us whenever we had to schedule or reschedule an appointment or showing. We would definitely and very highly recommend Joele to anyone who wants First Class Service with a Smile!
Joele was a pleasure to work with in helping me search for and purchase a home, she negotiates well, responded to me faster than anyone around and was highly professional!
