We started off just going to a few open houses to try to get an idea of the style and area that I was interested in, and then gradually got more serious once we'd zeroed in. I think part of a good agent/client match is the personality fit, and Shannon was perfect for me. I'm not someone who enjoys feeling pressured, and Shannon's laid back approach was a great match. When we did find a place, it coincided with a vacation I'd had on the books for a while, and Shannon and her team were able to handle all of the heavy lifting in my absence and push everything forward to close. We remain (and will continue to remain) in touch, and I'd recommend Shannon to others in a hearbeat.
She guided us through the entire process, patiently, and made it as painless as possible. Very happy with our experience and our new home! Thank you, Shannon.
She responded quickly to all the questions we had and her strategy on pricing was perfect. We got so much more for our home that we ever imagined. She is a rock star!
My number one priority when searching for a real estate agent was finding someone I could trust and someone who would put my best interests as a priority in home finding. Through every step of the way Shannon checked in with me and my husband to make sure we were comfortable, always making us aware of the pros and cons in any given situation. I know for a fact we wouldn't have ended up with the great property we scored without her. She is experienced and well respected in the field and everyone involved with our home purchase had nothing but great things to say about her as well. She's still helping us now with renovations after our purchase!
As first time home buyers, we had lots of questions and hesitations and Shannon had answers and put us at ease. She willingly shared her expertise and contacts with us even after the sale went through. We recommend Shannon to all our friends!
I liked her direct and clear communication style. She was available day or night to answer all of my questions. And she really had my back when there were some communication issues with my mortgage broker. I'd recommend Joanna to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
"They were so on top of it all the way through: from pricing the house, to listing, to getting offers and managing them. I couldn’t be happier. They really go the extra mile for you. I know this sounds like SPAM. But it’s not. They Rock.”
She knows the neighborhood and does her home-homework before showing you potential…homes. (We learned from experience that not every Realtor does this!) The escrow, signing and closing process was a snap, she answered all of our questions along the way. We got a fair price (for Los Angeles) and she never encouraged us to overbid or rushed the process. She’s very even-keeled in the face of the challenges that inevitably come up and patient, keeping us — first-time home buyers — very comfortable.”
She set expectations from the beginning detailing exactly how everything would happen and when.
My sale went extremely smoothly and Shannon was always anticipating any question or need that I had and made the process completely painless. Shannon is awesome.”
"They helped me and my husband find our first home. Shannon combines all the traits you want in a broker – she’s extremely knowledgeable about the market, trustworthy, honest, diligent, and experienced. She came to every open house with us and walked us through every step of the process. We could always count on her honest opinion, which was invaluable. She’s also just a pleasure to work with – funny, kind, and incredibly generous. She gave us great recommendations for inspectors, painters, etc. She seems to know everybody and every thing about buying a house. It was a huge help. Her husband, Joey, is also terrific. He is a contractor and was incredibly helpful to us when we were looking at homes; he would estimate for us how much various renovations would cost and what types of renovations were possible. Just like Shannon, he was always a pleasure to work with.”
"Not only was she extremely diligent, resourceful, and professional, she was also very kind, open minded and patient with a very picky and nervous first time buyer (me). I spent many hours looking at properties with her, and I found that she was a delight to be around and has a wealth of knowledge that I was able to benefit from. I could really tell she loves what she does, truly enjoys working with people, and was determined to find a place that was perfect for me. I would love to work with Shannon again in the future and I highly recommend her!”
She is extremely knowledgeable about the Eastside. Shannon was with me at every open house and always gives great advice. She’s extremely honest. As I first time home buyer, it was a relief to have someone I could trust. Shannon and her husband Joey even helped me coordinate the work that needed to be done on the house. They never made me feel like any of my questions were stupid (and I had a lot of them). Shannon and Joey went above and beyond. I’m forever grateful.”
"She’s easy to work with and very knowledgeable about the market in the Echo Park/Silver Lake area. I hired Shannon to list my duplex as a rental. She worked tirelessly to show both units and was very thorough during the application and screening process. I liked Shannon’s straightforward style and prompt follow up. If you’re looking to buy, sell or rent, Shannon is the agent that will give you personal attention combined with seasoned experience.”
"She helped my family sell a property in LA, while we had to be far in Europe and take care of hard family matters. Her calm, her availability, her privacy is remarkable. Able to solve incoming problems, with the professional attitude needed in each case, makes of her the choice to make in this field. Recommending her to all.”
"I was a total newbie to buying a home and she helped me every step of the way. She was patient and understanding and was quick to respond to calls and email. I was glad to guide me along my journey to home ownership. She really goes above and beyond what you expect to get you your dream house!”
"She explained the process step by step throughout the ups and downs of a competitive market. She even helped us find a moving company! She is very responsive and was diligent about advocating and negotiating on our behalf. We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her in the future.”
"She was extremely optimistic and focused while providing help in my home search. I would most definitely recommend her as an Agent, one who takes into account the needs of the buyer and is dedicated in finding a place that meets those needs.”
"She was very professional and attentive to my expectations. I was quite frustrated with my previous agent because it seemed that she had many other commitments and was always slow to respond to my requests. The market was highly competitive. Prior to working with Shannon I had put offers on 6 properties (all unsuccessful). Shannon was always on the ball. She worked with my schedule, did late night, early morning and weekend showings. We were able to view my house and put an offer on it within 24 hours of listing. I am very thankful and will go back to her for my next real estate transaction.”
"When I found The One, her expertise in negotiations helped get me the price I wanted to pay without pushing too hard and running the risk of losing out. When it came to the inspection period, I would have been completely lost. Shannon not only has an amazing network of experts, but really took the time to go over results with me. & explain everything.”
