Dan L. – Sunset Cliffs
Josie Sarullo worked with me over the course of 3-4 months in late 2012 / early 2013 to purchase an investment property in San Diego (3 bedroom / 2 bath single family residence). When I told her my criteria and price range ($200-300K), she knew that this would be a ton of work given the competitive market and low inventory, but she was up for the challenge. I’ve worked with many realtors over the years and Josie was by far the hardest working of them all. I had not even decided on which area of town I wanted to buy in, but she spent evenings and weekends driving out and showing me dozens of single family homes all over El Cajon, Lemon Grove, Chula Vista, La Mesa, Escondido, Vista, and City Heights. Her knowledge and experience with evaluating potential rental property was quite valuable, since several of the properties had things that would cause future issues for tenants. She warned me in the beginning how competitive it would be and that we’d have to bid on up to 10 homes before landing one due to the short supply in my price range. After about my 6th or 7th offer, we finally struck a deal on a great home in Lemon Grove that was on the market for only 3 days. The negotiation was tough, since it’s a seller’s market, but we had a long enough due diligence period to work through everything to our satisfaction. Josie even helped me find my first set of tenants by posting ads on Craigslist immediately after the sale. I highly recommend Josie for any future real estate transaction in the San Diego area. You will not be disappointed.
