Setting the Price

Testimonials

Wow...what a blessing Johnathon was for us! He made the incredible happen...when we thought we could not buy with our existing credit...he made it happen...working with his team he made it happen and we now own our beautiful home! Tammy C
Utility plant operator Jonathan was amazing to work with and made the homebuying process very easy. He was with me every step of the way and really helped make this the easiest homebuying process I've ever experienced. His knowledge and expertise of the industry and the home buying market helped me make better informed decisions. I really loved his honesty about the properties that we visited, he always looked out for my interests. I couldn't have asked for a better agent and am so happy that I was able to work with Jonathan and his team. One of the things that really helped was being able to do all the paperwork electronically, it saved so much time and was very convenient for my busy lifestyle. They were able to get me into a house in under a month and we even closed early! Heather M
Medical Management Jonathan went over and beyond to fulfill our dreams of moving into our very first home. We are beyond excited. Thank you very much for all your hard work and dedication to your clients old and new!!!! Highly recommended :) Heather T
I wanted to commend you for your great service during the purchasing of my home. Thanks for helping me during the search within a short timeframe I had to locate a home. Also, for your help in narrowing down the location of my home and fitting it under the specific mortgage limits that I wanted. I appreciate your assistance in negotiating the sale price under the terms that I requested. You were prompt in responding to me whenever I had a question or concern regarding the purchase of the home, the submission of the appropriate documentation, and communicating during my coordination of the vacating of the rental and the move in to the new home happen within a one day timeframe. Thank you so much for all of your hard work. Ron C
I have cooperated with Jonathan on real estate transactions in Sacramento area. He has also managed my rental properties. I admire his knowledge in the local market, attention to details and strong negotiation skills. He has helped me nail a short sale deal which another buyer agent thought impossible to get. He has dealt with some tenants in difficult situations and made sure my interests were protected. We have a quite amicable relationship. Highly recommended! Hong
Assisted in being out of the area and getting all the necessary papers signed and just going out of his way to be a good real estate person I would work with him over and over again if I was to buy another house tonipratt08
Jonathan was our buying agent while we were on the hunt for a new home in the Elk Grove area. I was nervous as a first time home buyer, and he was so patient with me, answered all of my (many, MANY) questions, never made me feel rushed or pressured, and most of all.. he found us our dream home! I'm not sure who was more excited, him or us! He listened to what our needs and wants were, and was able to show us homes that perfectly fit what we were looking for. He was able to show me houses that I found listing for online almost immediately, and is super easy to get in touch with. We started getting a little discouraged after having a couple of offers turned down, and withdrawing an offer on another house, but never once did Jonathan give up on us or our search and he really kept the wind in my sails. He is no longer just our agent, he is now our family friend and I cannot recommend him enough! If you are a buyer and want an agent who will truly look out for you and make the process as smooth as possible, Jonathan is the guy. I will absolutely use him as our listing agent when we sell also, because he gets the job done. Kelly Joanino
