what jo’s clients are saying...

i can’t recommend jo more highly.  jo helped me buy my first place, and i honestly can’t imagine going through the process with anyone else.   she walked me through every step of the way, and patiently and thoroughly addressed any and every question, which were many as a first-time homeowner.  she couldn’t be more professional, organized and knowledgeable.  she has a wonderful personality and really listens and helps you find what you want, even if you’re not sure yourself!  i’ve already referred her to 3 of my friends who have successfully and happily closed on properties.

she came highly recommended from a friend and we found out why. she consistently worked on our sale at a highly professional level, which kept us continually informed of the clients’ thoughts and actions. she believed in our house and so was enthusiastic at every turn, and that enthusiasm created the sale. from our initial contact through the closing it was a positive experience. the house was sold in a timely manner, which allowed us to reach the next phase of our lives.

i would recommend jo to anyone in a heart beat. she was absolutely a delight to work with. she’s punctual, professional, responsive, patient, knowledgeable and very smart. she also goes beyond expectation in taking care of your needs, should you have it. i would love to have her as our agent any where we go.

i was a first-time home buyer about two years ago when i first started working with jo. she helped guide me through the tumultuous market of late 2009 and early 2010. i had a very rough idea of what i was looking for but her expertise and patience really helped me figure out what was perfect for me. i was pretty firm on what i wanted to pay and appreciated her patience over the months it took to find the right property at the right price. i made several offers on different types of properties under different situations (short sale, former rental property, fixer upper, etc) and she was very knowledgeable in what to consider and how the process might differ in each situation. jo has a great network as well and would reach out to them if she thought they could be helpful in the situation or had knowledge that she might not. i would definitely recommend jo as an agent to my friends and family and plan to work with her in the future.

we first worked with jo on the purchase of our condo. she was the realtor on the selling end of the transaction. dealing with her was such a pleasure. we were so impressed with jo that we chose her to represent us three years later on the sale of that very same condo. in this tough market, she did a great job marketing our home. within a few days, we had two offers and closed in a month! we cannot say enough about her professionalism, expertise and negotiation skills. we felt she was on top of things every step of the way!

jo is amazing! she is so professional and knowledgeable about both the realty business and the joys and challenges of living in la.  we are the world’s slowest and most cautious house buyers — and jo is the world’s most patient and considerate realtor. jo stuck by us and supported us in all our difficult decisions throughout the process (including walking away from the deal several times) while also making sure we appreciated all the possible outcomes of our actions. we got our new home at a great price and couldn’t be happier! and if we ever move, we hope jo will help us sell this and buy the next one…

i bought my first home in los angeles from jo. and she’s helped me on several occasions since. i plan to use jo to buy my next home.

jo was remarkably patient throughout the year that my wife and i searched for a home.  our criteria for a home was varied and could change based on certain factors, it made it difficult for jo to anticipate our reaction but her enthusiasm and dedication never wavered.  once we found a home, jo was phenomenal. she navigated a complicated escrow with ease and performed miracles on our end.

in the last decade, i have bought and sold 3 homes, all with jo dresner as my agent.  jo’s depth of knowledge for this market, combined with her personal dedication to her clients, elevates her to the highest levels of recommendation. jo goes out of her way to accommodate my busy schedule, communicate succinctly, and make the home buying/selling process as easy as possible for me. however, make no mistake – this lady is no pushover! she is an aggressive negotiator who has represented me accurately in every transaction. jo’s years of experience also comes with great referrals for other providers i need for inspections, repairs, financing, etc. for the best representation in the business, retain jo dresner as your agent for your next real estate transaction.

jo is a delight to work with. she is very responsive, knowledgeable and experienced. further, she is a true professional who knows the area very well. i couldn’t recommend her more highly. you will not be disappointed.

i can’t say enough about jo.  my wife and i had been searching for a home for about 6 months with a different realtor and were extremely frustrated with the service we were getting. then a friend of mine recommended jo and we made the switch. every step of the process was a joy with her. it only took one session to realize we were in good hands. she immediately understood the specifics of what we were looking for, which meant she never wasted our valuable time showing us homes that didn’t fit our requirements (those of you who have wasted your sunday afternoons with ‘pointless’ showings will know exactly what i’m talking about). we found our perfect home in about 6 weeks. jo is extremely knowledgeable with the business and legal aspects of buying a home. she held our hand throughout the entire escrow process and answered every question promptly and accurately. since we’re canadian, we had to jump through a lot more hoops in order to lock down a mortgage. once again, jo came to the rescue. not only is she amazing, but the people she recommends are equally amazing. when the time comes for me and my wife to sell this house and upgrade to our next one, i can guarantee that i’ll be calling jo. and at the end of the day, that’s the highest praise i can possibly give.

we worked with jo when buying our current town home. she was extremely knowledgeable and even though she worked as the seller’s agent was a joy to work with. if i was to sell my home i would most def enlist the services of jo.

jo dresner helped my wife and i purchase a home.   it was a difficult transaction to procure (dealing with banks, multiple points of contact, and a dragged out process). throughout, jo exuded the highest level of excellence and professionalism while also being a good friend/person and treating us with a great deal of respect.   she’s organized, buttoned up, knowledgeable, and able to distill the trickiest of situations into very clear and easy-to-understand terms. in the simplest terms, she made us feel comfortable throughout the process – which, at the end of the day – is what you want most out of your agent.  i’d highly recommend jo to those looking for assistance in real estate transactions.
