JoJo’s “Raving” Fan Club

“JoJo Harmon came highly recommended to me, and I am very happy that we chose her as our realtor. She is very professional and went well beyond in her duties as a realtor. She had many great ideas on how best to present the home for sale, marketing and improving the home to make the sale. She handled many of the improvements and legalitie’s, as we live out of state and were not able to be there to do most of these things. I must also mention that she did many different forms of advertising, which resulted in a quick sale. It was very much a pleasure to work with JoJo and how she handled this difficult situation. A million thank you’s and thank you to the moon & back. You are above & beyond 5 stars!” Darla Ferrarese, Durango, CO

 

“JoJo Harmon has certainly earned her 5 star rating. She is the local expert in our neighborhood of 300 homes. My experience with her is that she is always professional in her communications whether it be with Buyer, Seller, or Escrow company. The approach is always methodical and confident. In addition she was able to offer constructive suggestions on how to best present the property (she works with a top notch photographer) and how to fix anything inexpensively. Often she was able to anticipate and avoid pitfalls. Our home sold in ten days. If you want a “No Nonsense” and results driven realtor, I highly recommend JoJo.” Dee Challis-Davy, Laguna Niguel, CA

 

“Honesty, Expertise, Professionalism, Knowledge is what you get from JoJo Harmon. She listens, she is courteous and gives you a calendar to follow for day to day events. I have purchased and sold many homes in my 40 plus years, but never have I been so impressed with how she guided me through escrow with efficiency and ease. Most important, JoJo also took care of a few things after escrow closed. Two years ago, I asked another realtor about something after close of escrow, and their reply was ‘IT’S OUT OF MY HANDS NOW’. JoJo is not pushy, which is one thing I hate about realtors. She tells you the truth or finds out what you want to know. Thank you JoJo, you are the best.” Alberta & Donald Delnevo, Laguna Niguel

 

“We highly recommend JoJo to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, thorough, detail oriented, honest, committed real estate professional. This year, I helped move my parents to an independent senior living community in Northern California near me. Meanwhile, we needed to remodel and sell their home for 40 years in Laguna Niguel. JoJo was a lifesaver! She assisted me long distance with all the details needed to put the house on the market, assisted with managing the general contractor & landscaper doing the work on their home, and coordinated staging the house. I could not have possibly managed all of this long distance without her. She is always professional and on top of it! She frequently updated me and provided expertise and sound advice as we went through the complicated process of preparing and selling their home. I will miss talking to her! She sold my parents’ home in just a few days with multiple offers! I can’t overstate how valuable JoJo was to us during this stressful transition for my parents. You are working with the best of the best when working with JoJo! Thank you, JoJo, for always making us feel completely taken care of! You are the BEST!” Desta K. – San Jose

 

“Can’t thank you enough! JoJo is really special and it was a pleasure working with her! She is extremely professional, honest & knowledgeable! She explained the selling and closing process and was there every step of the way. Nothing was too much, she took care of all the crazy situations without any complaints. She did so much more than was even necessary. Everything went smoothly due to JoJo’s efforts. She addressed items before we knew anything was even necessary. JoJo’s marketing expertise sold our home in about a week with multiple offers! JoJo is an angel and one in a million. We were so lucky to have her as our agent & we would highly recommend JoJo!!!” Willy & Lee Burgers, Laguna Niguel

 

“Ms. Harmon is an outstanding real estate agent for the following reasons: 1). Professional communication and coordination with listing agent/representative, title companies, mortgage company, and buyers. 2). Extensive knowledge of sales process and timelines. 3). Knowledge of California’s real estate sales laws & regulations. 4). Integrity & honesty are Ms. Harmon’s trademark. 5). Follow-through before, during, and after the sale. 6). Extremely cooperative and always available to answer questions, arrange on site visits, and offer assistance in whatever capacity necessary. Before working with Ms. Harmon, my husband and I had extremely jaded and cynical opinions of real estate agents due to many unpleasant real estate agent transactions. Ms. Harmon has proven to us that honest, hardworking, competent, and intelligent real estate agents exist because she is one of those rare professions working in real estate. Both my husband and I consider it an honor and a privilege to be able to recommend Ms. JoJo Harmon.” Dave & Barbara Shoaf, Laguna Niguel

 

“Full Service from start to finish. Top tier professionalism with a personal touch is what you can expect from JoJo. When we bought our first home, we knew we wanted a piece of the American dream but was unsure of the whole process. Finding a house we liked was the easy part, everything after that: putting together an offer to closing was where we needed help. When it was time to sell that house we knew we wanted to work with her again. This time we had moved, and I was pursuing a real estate license in another state. I knew a lot of work went into closing the deal, but just how much is what separates JoJo from the pack. From the basic expectation of calling when she says she is going to call, to timely updates and feedback of the marketing efforts, or possible better lender options (whether she represents the buyer or seller). She will help the other side get it done. With her experience, ethics and vast network in the real estate industry, JoJo will always be our #1 choice for Orange County, California Real Estate Professional.” Mona and Jeff De Armas, Ladera Ranch, CA

“We just sold our home through Realty One Group, with JoJo Harmon as our agent.  We had a pleasant experience, and we want to share it with you.

Putting our Laguna Beach home of 33 years on the market was a difficult decision, but one we knew we had to make as we age, become more frail, and face the need to downsize and simplify our lives.

JoJo’s first Open House with our property piqued the interest of a young family, and within the first week of listing, we got an offer that was quite fair.  The buyers asked for a 45-day escrow, which gave us plenty of time to dispose of our possessions, and make our property sparkle for the next owners.  However, we soon learned that the buyers wanted to shorten the escrow period, which meant we had to hasten our activity.  JoJo gave us encouragement and good advice, as she looked after not only our own interests, but also the interests of the buyers, which is a very reasonable approach to effect the sale of a home.  As the close of escrow approached, a few last-minute things needed fixing, and JoJo provided us with competent references so that we could accomplish our tasks on time.

JoJo Harmon responded to all of our questions and concerns in a timely fashion; she made the whole sales process go smoothly not only for us but also for the buyers.  Thank you, JoJo.  You are the best!  Your competence, high level of real estate sales knowledge, and many years of sales experience made the entire process go seamlessly for us.” Ted Mowery & Paul Shelley –  Laguna Beach, CA

 

“My husband and I found our dream home while out looking at open houses. JoJo had helped us buy our last home, and she made the process amazingly smooth and seamless. She consistently showed the same advocacy, attention to detail, and excellent service for this transaction as well. She kept everyone in communication, stayed on top of everything that needed to happen, and worked to help us get the financing we needed. We were able to close in record time. JoJo also helped us get our house ready for sale and on the market. She created phenomenal marketing materials, held open houses, and got us a full price offer in about two weeks. She answered every question and was always patient, calm, and professional. She took care of every detail of the transaction and made it as stress free as possible. JoJo is THE realtor your want to work with– she will do everything possible to get you what you want!” Bob & Sonia, San Clemente, CA

 

“The sale of our father’s home was fraught with problems and JoJo handled each of them with resilience, tenacity and intelligent problem-solving. Her efforts were nothing short of Herculean and my brother and I are completely indebted to her. She’s a miracle worker who saved us a huge amount of time and money. JoJo handled everything from the wee-most details to the big nasty legal issues. I have never seen a real estate agent fight so hard and so consistently for a client. She is, without question, the best real estate agent I could have imagined. JoJo profoundly endeared herself to our family. She’s rock-solid and was the steady hand we needed at just the right time. From the bottom of our hearts JoJo, THANK YOU. We’ll never forget you. I would give you 100 stars if I could.

6/12/17 – I had a visit from a dear friend who came to see how I was doing and I described for him, in detail, all you did for us. Recalling the story, I was still struck by your steadfast persistence and rock solid fortitude. I told my friend that I will never forget you — this incredible woman and with unbelievable, almost indescribable effort. Even the yoga/meditation class you recommended helped me get through! I just wanted to let you know that my appreciation for you is as strong as ever and that I will remember all of this for perpetuity!” Karen C – Laguna Niguel, CA

 

Main-Prof.-300x164“Our house sold and closed as smooth as we could ever imagine. We loved how you screened the people that were brought to our house, so that we were never once bothered by any “Lookie Lou’s”. This was especially important to us because of Suzanne’s health. With your fantastic attention to detail, the closing was both fast and accurate. We have several friends in the area and we plan to tell all of them how professional you were in the completion of our sale. You went far beyond what have experienced in the past. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You for all of your help and advice!!!!” Glade & Suzanne Owens, Laguna Niguel, CA

 

DSC_0127_8_9-copy_12758885634_l-300x199“JoJo, just wanted to say “Thank You” for all you did in selling Mom’s home. She was right, you know how to sell homes! We could not have done it without all your help. With Mom being so ill, you stepped forward and met with all the people for us. Finding just the right person for whatever situation someone was needed. Especially since I would be at the hospital or being out of the area, you just really helped me so much. It really helped lighten the process enormously. Mom was so happy that you personally took care of pruning her roses week after week! I really can’t thank you enough, and the gift card was so very kind. I honestly need to send you one!!!  Thank You again for everything!” Karen W. – Laguna Niguel, CA

 

DSC_0229_30_31-copy_12914911113_l-300x199“I need to thank you for the help you have given me in selling the house in Laguna Niguel. As I told you before, my husband used to take care of things, I just signed the papers. You took his place as far as the sale is concerned. I relied on you, and the sale was completed in record time thanks to your expertise and resources, not to forget your realistic pricing. My neighbors were amazed as they watched things unfold.  As you know, selling a house after 35 years is a bit of an emotional event. You were my rock of Gibraltar.  Thank you for your support.” Antje S., Laguna Niguel, CA

 

1401-Lakeside-Lane-Lightened-300x217“JoJo Harmon was a valuable source of assistance when my oldest brother passed away suddenly, leaving my surviving brothers (one in Ohio) and myself overwhelmed by all that needed to be done. My brother had been in the middle of a total house renovation, and 75% of the work remained to be completed. JoJo joined our family, helping to organize the process of finishing the renovation and preparing the house to be placed on the market for sale. JoJo’s calm and confident manner encouraged us all through the difficult times, and her ever-present patience with us was greatly appreciated! I would highly recommend using JoJo Harmon as a realtor when selling or buying a home. She is very professional, while maintaining a personal, kind, human interest in her clients. She proved to be an enormous support and asset to my family and me.” Cher M., Huntington Beach

 

Main-300x152“I’d like to thank JoJo Harmon for the wonderful job she did on the sale of my house. I first met JoJo when she acted as the seller’s agent for the house I later sold. I was very impressed with her professionalism and straightforward manner. I have never regretted hiring her. I was selling my house at a point when the California realty market was rising at a previously unheard of rate. I needed someone who could guide me through knowledge of the local market and pricing my home at a reasonable level. She came through beautifully, and I received multiple offers. The house sold quickly, for a price that both myself and the buyers were happy with. Through escrow, JoJo oversaw the process and kept everything on track, all the while keeping excellent communication open with me. I would gladly recommend her to anyone.” Barb P., Laguna Niguel, CA

 

DSC01486-2-300x225“JoJo is a 10 out of 10!  She went beyond the call with our transaction, especially with helping resolve some building permit issues.  Her advice in pricing our property was on target, which resulted in multiple offers.  JoJo’s knowledge of our neighborhood and the dynamics of the local real estate market were extremely helpful in selling our home.  Her marketing strategy was presented and followed from the beginning.  Her use of social networking sites brought many prospective buyers and offers.” Tom & Nancy, Laguna Niguel, CA

 

Main1-300x225“If you are considering selling your home look no further than JoJo Harmon. JoJo is truly a professional in all facets of real estate. When we decided to list our home JoJo came over and helped us get our house ready. She has an eye for staging, design and detail and always goes the extra mile for her clients. We were impressed with her knowledge of the market and her determination to see us succeed. In just twelve days our home sold and we could not have done it without her. Thank you JoJo for everything!” Greg & Linda Mann, Laguna Niguel, CA

 

5-Rex-Ct-300x200“Of the experiences I gained from working with many real estate agents, JoJo is the best agent I have had.  Last year, when I was trying to acquire a house in California, I found JoJo from the http://realtor.com.   Through our conversation via emails and phones, I found out JoJo is highly professional in the real estate business.  She looked for the type of property I needed and informed me as soon as it became available.  She did the analysis and provided me as much useful information as I need about the property.  The information I got from her really helped me to make the decision.  During the closing time, JoJo helped me on the paperwork, arranged the inspection and repairing (while I returned home to New Jersey).  She made sure all the work was fully completed.  The transition went very smoothly.  I am really happy with the house I bought through her.” Jenny K., Aliso Viejo, CA

 

“We were very happy to have JoJo Harmon work with us to lease out our home. Throughout the entire process JoJo was professional, conscientious, and motivated. She provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for lease. We always felt as though I was her only client. Her knowledge regarding local real estate market made finding a qualified renter a less stressful and difficult process.  She not only provided us with daily activity report, but also the feedback from other agent who showed the property. She also was always available to answer our questions, prompt to return our calls, and put in the time and effort to do a good job for us.  We really appreciated JoJo’s calm reassurance and expert advice throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend JoJo Harmon to anyone needing a Realtor to buy, rent or sell a home.” Kathy C., Laguna Niguel, CA

 

“JoJo is beyond the best realtor I have ever worked with – she is organized, accurate on market prices and what buyers or sellers need. Great with DAILY communications with client and willing to listen to what the client is looking for yet gives advice to keep them on a path that is obtainable. This is the first person who went beyond the call of duty for me when I was selling my home in Laguna Niguel inclusive of going up of the roof with my termite contractor to view damage – and meeting inspectors etc when I was unable to be there – JoJo Harmon is a WINNER!” ML Buck, San Clemente, CA

 

“JoJo is without a doubt “As Good As It Gets!” She is a master at her craft. JoJo knows everyone and everything about Real Estate and what she doesn’t know she finds out accessing her bountiful supply of connections. She is very well respected by her peers. JoJo sold our home in Laguna Niguel 3 years ago during a difficult time as we were going through a divorce. It was so bad that my ex and I could not be in the same room together. JoJo handled our situation with compassion and professionalism. I was so pleased with JoJo’s work, I asked her to help me with the purchase of my short sale condo. Once again, I am so pleased to have her by my side. She is making the biggest purchase of my life so stress free. JoJo keeps me updated, is easily accessable, a very savy business woman who is friendly, kind and clearly a woman of integrity. SO ORGANIZED. SO DETAIL ORIENTED. SUCH A HARD WORKER. And I’m thankful to say, my ex and I are now at peace with our divorce which makes moving on into my new condo so much more rewarding. Yes, JoJo, YOU ARE AS GOOD AS IT GETS! THANK YOU FOR YOUR HARD WORK. YOU ARE SO APPRECIATED!” Lori Sue W., Aliso Viejo, CA

 

“JoJo was my Realtor to find and negotiate the home of my dreams. She told me not to get too attached when we made the offer because it was a “short sale” and we had to go thru alot of hoops but she did it. Literally JoJo aggressively worked through all the issues, including dealing with the short sale bank, selling agent, my credit union, escrow company and then with all the Inspections to make sure I was comfortable with the home and purchasing it “as is”. It all worked out and now less than 3 months later my home is the shining star on the block. I got an incredible price and with alittle paint, landscaping improvements and new doors … everyone says I found the “diamond in the rough”. I never would of found it or been able to work thru the short sale process without JoJo. thank you!” Kathy S., Laguna Hills, CA

 

“JoJo is an amazing person and Real Estate Agent. I was lucky enough to have my home listed with JoJo and it sold in two weeks. Two weeks in this market! And I got the price I wanted. Who would of thought that JoJo would be able to pull everything together to put my house up for sale and make everything go so smoothly. I lived in my house for over 30 years so you can imagine the clutter I collected. I followed JoJo’s advice on painting, adding new fixtures, dejunking, cleaning, yard and flower upgrades and the general curb appeal suggestions she made. With JoJo’s guidance I had a remarkable offer in less than 14 days and my house closed within 30 days. Yahoo and a big Thank You to JoJo.” Kathy K., Laguna Niguel, CA

 

“JoJo goes far beyond the call of duty. If you are looking for a hands on, “Full Service Realtor” JoJo is that and more. She fixes broken pipes, turns a wrench, runs to Home Depot on a daily basis for you and you’re your listing, will meet repair reps, be there for all estimates, holds interviews with several companies before she recommends one. She even has the ability to get very reasonable prices for any/all work being performed.

Not only did she take the time to explain all offers, she was able to do it in a way that we all understood. Sometimes that can be tricky. There were 3 sisters selling this home, all with very different personalities, and JoJo was able to work with everyone very effectively. That is such a gift!

I never had to worry about anything falling through the cracks. JoJo took over the sale of my parent’s home after their death and sold it with care, kindness, and a detail that the most organized individual would envy. She was able to stay positive (even when things looked like they were not going well) and helped us through a very difficult time in our lives. I would and have recommended her. If I chose a career in Real Estate, JoJo is the realtor that I would model myself after.

I could not have asked her to do one more thing for us, but I know if I did, she would have done it with a calm smile on her face.  JoJo is SO organized and very detailed. You will love working with her. I did not have to worry about a thing; she took over absolutely everything and handled our listing as if it was her own home. What a comfort that was.” Laura Liv Haack, Irvine, CA
