I'm a Mortgage professional and Real Estate investor in the greater Bay Area. I've worked with Joanne several times. Honestly, cannot say enough good things about the way she conducts herself and her business. I've found her to be VERY knowledgeable, filled with great insights to the current state of the RE market and always has a spot on recommendation for what the best next move will be on any given transaction. I really value her opinion and love working with her OR sending my own clients her way...comforting to know they are in good hands. Lastly, and most importantly to me, she operates with a high degree of integrity and it's clear that she has my best interest at heart. If you want an excellent Realtor, you need look no further than Joanne Hodge...I don't.
Joanne Hodge is THE BEST real estate agent we've ever had!! And, we've lived in different cities and counties in CA. and owned 7 homes and condos. Joanne has been in the business for 20 yrs. and has ridden it up and down. She's solid! Joanne is very knowledgeable about the properties she shows us and has THE BEST finance person to work with when purchasing and selling. She knows what each of her clients want and shows them what fits their needs and desires. She's always available and very communicative. Joanne goes the extra mile! We have referred others to her, including our children who have bought 2 homes through Joanne, and have gotten excellent deals. In this market when there are multiple bids, she worked it out so that we and children's offers were accepted on 4 properties at 4 different times! You are in THE BEST hands with Joanne!!
Joanne has been my agent for buying four single family investment properties. She informed me promptly of prospective houses, and was generous with her time, taking me out to look and make deals. I don’t drive, so she was especially accommodating, picking me up at BART many time. Since making my purchases, she has continued to me a resource, providing good referrals for repairmen. Recently she gave me a call when she saw a tenant was neglecting the yard in Pittsburg, which was very helpful, since I don’t visit the properties regularly. I give her my highest recommendation.
Your local real estate knowledge, patience and attention to detail were invaluable in going through the multiple sales offers received after you listed my sought-after beautiful home and held the well-attended Open House.
In an ever-changing real estate environment I found that having you as my agent made the process painless and smooth. From scheduling the inspections, to closing the sale it was a pleasure working with you. You are a real pro!
If you are looking for someone extremely professional and super organized to sell your home then I highly recommend Joanne Hodge. The process of selling your home can often times be very tedious, but having Joanne as your Realtor can really simplify things. That is because Joanne takes care of EVERYTHING. She will work directly with your bank so the seller does not have to worry about a thing. She is awesome!
Joanne completed our short sale. It took many months. She communicated continuously and when we were ready to just throw up our hands and say "forget it, the bank is just being ridiculous, we've killed two trees already producing duplicates of paperwork submitted two months ago...", Joanne would spend time dealing with the bank to get answers.
Joanne is straight forward, results driven, compassionate, respectful and thorough.
I found Joanne to be very professional and enjoyable to work with in finding my investment house. I'm sure that I was one of her choosier clients, and she didn't waiver in her commitment with me to find that right house- and we did! I always looked forward to our time together, as she had a way of making it fun with her pleasant personality, and I always learned so much in our conversations. I'm very grateful to have found Joanne; her knowledge of location specifics and how they affect your investment was extremely helpful. Her insight into the market that she so generously shares, keeps me current and confident that I have a go to person for my questions and real estate needs.
We have sold one and purchased two homes with Joanne. She is very personable and truly cares about her clients goals. When buying a new home, she is very patient and will take however long is necessary to find the right home, because she understands what a big purchase buying a house is and genuinely wants the client to be happy. When selling, she is very knowledgeable as to what to price your house, and can also give very accurate recommendations on which upgrades or renovations would net you the greatest return for your money to up the resale value of a home.
I would definitely use her again and have already recommended her to all my friends.
We highly recommend Joanne Hodge as a Real estate Agent.We were very pleased with her system of online and in person information which helped us to find our wonderful dream house as well as sell our former home.She is a delight to work with and we are so grateful that she was recommended to us!!
Joanne has proven herself over and over to be a very dedicated and caring realtor. During the purchase of our last home just this October, she was there for us every step of the way. The transaction was not an easy one. A difficult situation arose with the seller due to some expensive, very unexpected home repair. She helped us as we made the decision to back out due to no cooperation from the seller. She was also there to offer advice and guide us as we were back in contract once the seller realized they had no choice but to repair the home. Overall through the years we have experienced first hand just how much Joanne cares about her clients and goes above and beyond the normal scope of her duties. She is very knowledgeable and professional. She is committed to helping her clients with the sale and purchase of their home. One can truly feel the commitment and compassion she has for each and every person she works with.
There aren't enough words to praise what a wonderful realtor Joanne is! She helped us sell our house, and went on a long search as we patiently waited to find another house. The long search was not due to Joanne. We had a list of feng shui requirements that needed to be met before making our offer. I could tell you that no other realtor would have been as patient, considerate and respectful of our wishes throughout this process. We were so thankful she never gave up on us! At times, we felt like giving up on finding the "right" feng shui house, but she remained optimistic week after week. Could not have done it without her!
Joanne is our family's realtor (my husband & me and dodo our daughter & son-in-law) and has helped us buy and sell several properties since 2010 very successfully. She patiently endured ALL of our numerous e-mails and call and took to view MANY properties over those years. She took the time to get toreally know us and what we wanted and REALLY KNOWS the market and different strategies. Joanne is professional, yet personable and fun! She's become more than our realtor- she's become part of our family! We HIGHLY recommend Joanne Hodge of Keller-Williams Realty in Walnut Creek!
