***FIRST TIME HOME BUYER EXPERT****
Josie went above and beyond during my very long first time home buyer experience. From our first interaction she was very helpful and accommodating . She ensured that I always had the most up to date information on the market and had all the necessary information to make a purchase. When Josie and I first started looking at homes she told me that she works for buyers and she would do everything in her power to get me the home I wanted at or below my price range. Due to Josie’s superior knowledge of the San Diego market, clients get the added benefit of someone who has seen it all and will negotiate a price well within your budget. There is not a time throughout the day that she is unavailable, even with my hectic schedule she constantly made herself available when I needed her. After closing on my home Josie did not cut all ties with me she continues to communicate with me and provided the added support all first time home buyers will need. She really makes you feel like you are more than just a client. Josie is a constant professional who caters to all your needs. I can’t thank her enough for all she has done for me as a realtor! I look foreword to working with her again for a future purchase. If you are a first time home buyer Josie is the realtor you need to work with!
Josie Sarullo is an Amazing Realtor and we are so thankful we found her. It took us One Listing and One Visit and she got the job done! We had it listed with another agent for over 2 years and when Josie got the listing she SOLD it in 3 days at the highest price possible. She explained to us several different ways to move the property and since we valued her experience we followed her advice and of course she was able to turn our property to SOLD. With her One on One customer service (No Team- yeah!) we were able to call her directly at anytime to ask questions. Honest, Professional, and Plain old hard work explains her service. We highly recommend Agent Josie for all your Real Estate Needs. She truly cares for her clients. When our friends and family need to Buy or Sell real estate we will call her. Our Realtor for Life.
Best Agent ever!
We moved in San Diego just recently from Italy, and we immediately understood that with the crazy rent, it would be a better idea to buy our own place.
So once day we stepped into Josie’s office, asking for the impossible: a single family house in PB at a low price. Yes, basically what everyone ask for. We immediately understood that she was the right person: very expert in her job, always available to answer all our questions, and strong when she needs to be. She helped us to find a temporary rental while finding a place for us, and she was able to deal with all the contacts/paperwork for us for free. Then, our research started, and (I guess like every buyer), we bothered her for every single detail! Well, she was wonderful, always very honest (even in saying, “this house doesn’t worth the price”, that is something unusual for an agent…) and available to come to visit tons of places with us. And, eventually, she found exactly what we were looking for, the perfect place for us. Yes, that’s like a dream comes true, and we have to thank Josie for every steps she did with us. We didn’t have any experience with escrow/documents and all other stuff you need to do to buy a house, but thanks to Josie, it was all easy and right. We are now ready to move in our new home, and of course we’ll invite Josie for dinner as our first guest!
I really recommend her for everyone who wants a wonderful person and an expert agent taking care of selling/buying a home. Thanks again Josie, for all what you did for us.
We found Josie when we first moved to San Diego and she was incredibly helpful to us in finding a rental house while we sold our house in Seattle, and later, worked with us to find the perfect home in San Diego. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market and real estate laws and is one of the hardest working agents I know. She responded promptly to all of our texts, fought diligently to get us the best deal with the most perks and is a definite go getter. We absolutely loved working with her. As an agent, she will fight to get you the best deal. Best of all, she communicates with you daily to let you know what is on the market and what to expect beforehand and she makes herself available on your schedule. It was such a pleasure working with her, I will refer her to all my friends and acquaintances. In a town where everyone’s neighbor seems to be a real estate agent, Josie really stands out among them as one of the best!
I live 2 hours outside of San Diego and I was looking for a small guest house to rent for my daughter who goes to school in San Diego. I checked the classifieds with no luck and decided to call at random a few real estate offices in the San Diego area to see if they had any connections to people who want to rent out their guest house. I could tell most of the agents weren’t really interested in helping me since there was really no commission in it for them. The last office I called was Dunn Realtors in Pacific Beach and Josie answered the phone. I told her what I was looking for and she informed me that guest houses are far and few between but she would still look if I was interested. We communicated for a couple of weeks but nothing reasonable came to fruition. So, I decided that I was just going to buy a condo in the San Diego area and my daughter could live there and I could collect the rent instead of paying rent another year at an apartment. Since Josie was the only agent who offered to help me, I informed her of my idea and she was off and running. She provided several links a day to new listings based on my criteria and she knows the San Diego area very well. That was critical since it’s a 2 hour drive for me to see a property in person. And, since I wasn’t local and have a busy work schedule she even coordinated with my wife and daughter all the listings and walk through’s. It was like having 3 clients which didn’t seem to bother her. After about a month and a half we found the perfect place and the sale closed in 2 weeks.
I can’t say enough about Josie since it was at least a month before I even met her in person. Everything went smooth from start to finish, never pushy just to close a sale like some agents and always gave tactful advice when needed. It was a great relationship that began because someone cared enough to help me knowing that there was likely no sales commission involved.
Here’s the situation: Mother-in-law passed away in San Diego and I was the unlucky member of the family to act as Successor Trustee for the family trust. Since I reside in Texas, I knew that selling her house was going to be a long-distance affair. I was unfamiliar with the San Diego market. I had a million things to do even without selling a house. The family was already receiving low-ball offers for the house the very day after Mom’s passing. Here’s the solution: Like we are always told do, immediately after arriving in San Diego I had intended to interview at least three real estate Agents. Well folks, five minutes after meeting Josie Sarullo at her Prudential office., I tossed all future interviews out the window. Right then and there, I knew in my heart that I had not only the “best” but the “only” Agent that I wanted to work with. Reckon I was right on. Due solely to her energy, coaching, and marketing skills, the house sold in a single day at a top-dollar price! I respect and appreciate real people. Josie is REAL. Real in her personality and character, real in her love of what she does, real in her interest in taking care of her client, and real in giving you the best possible service. Bar none.
Josie Sarullo recently sold a house and special use commercial building (church) for my denomination. I was very fortunate to find Josie and I am thrilled to be able to highly recommend her to others. She was very knowledgeable of the market in Pacific Beach and immediately produced all of the research that I would need in making decisions as we moved forward. Her personality, and charisma are contagious. She was very, very creative and diligent in marketing the properties. Her integrity and forthrightness are impeccable. Some tough negotiations were required with developers and she handled the numerous parties and developers with perseverance and fortitude. A seamless sale and enjoyable experience. Very thankful that I found her to handle my real estate needs in San Diego County. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
Josie was a pleasure to work with. She helped us find a condo in the UCSD area for our daughter. She went out of her way to make sure all our questions were answered and that we got the best deal possible. We would highly recommend her services!
Wanted to give Josie “10” stars, but the YELP system only let me give her 5 stars! If you are serious about wanting your property sold, you have got to speak with this professional FIRST. Josie knows the San Diego real estate environment. We did what she recommended before listing, the day of open house (just as she said) we received an all cash offer, and the property is now sold.
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.
