"I had a great experience working with Johanna while I was buying my first home in the Bellevue area. That was more than five years ago, and recently when I had to find a selling agent as I was relocating to CA, I didn't hesitate to call for her help. Starting from even before my home was put on the market and until after it was sold, she has been taking care of everything - professionally and promptly. She is very knowledgeable and is always there when I need her. I was lucky enough to get her help twice!"
Johanna was the most prepared and knowledgeable real estate broker I have ever worked with. She knew exactly what repairs were needed in our condo unit to make sure it sold for top dollar with the least amount of investment and work on our end. I hardly had to do anything as she was there to let contractors in and make sure everything was completed up to her standards. We sold our condo property for the highest price in the complex, and there were two others that came on the market at the exact same time and with the exact same floorplan (and more upgrades). Johanna was also excellent help on the documents side. The first thing she did was to check our title and make sure it was in order (which it wasn’t). It was a godsend that she knew to check the title otherwise it would have delayed closing. She knew how to work with the HOA which can sometimes be difficult. I highly recommend Johanna Cox on the listing of your home. She will make your sale so easy, with less work, less cost, less stress and highest sale price.
Thank you so much Johanna!!!! You are awesome! You helped us buy our new dream home, and helped us sell our old home at a dream price!!! Thank you for all you did :)
I have bought and sold homes several times over the last 20 years and have worked with terrific realtors. My bar is high. I interviewed highly recommended realtors to handle my recent Kirkland sale and fortunately had the wisdom to select Johanna Cox to represent me. My expectations were unreasonable and thanks to a demanding job, my time was short. Johanna's strategic approach to our very hot market was coupled with a genuine interest in my personal goals and circumstances. She went beyond my expectations in her efforts to set me up to understand the unusual market conditions, help me to prepare my house for sale by providing excellent referrals (even watching my home when I couldn't be there during work being done). She personally staged my home at no charge. Her response times to my questions were within an hour or so - even responding late at night. Her support made all the difference and resulted in my selling my home for many thousands more than I would have realized from a less involved and/or experienced broker. After my house sold she continued to support me by helping me to find a rental - even though her plate was full with other properties. She is extraordinarily efficient, has talented and dependable trade relationships and as she promised - was with me every step of the way. The qualities I appreciate in Johanna will exceed the expectations of anyone with real estate needs, regardless of the market conditions. She was outstanding in every way.
Johanna is a "miracle worker" who makes our house-buying journey a pleasure. She's the most knowledgeable, warm and thoughtful person and is always accommodating to our schedule.
My husband and I have been looking for a house in a highly desirable neighborhood for 8 months (Yes, 8 months…) If we didn't have Johanna by our side, I would already give up. When we finally saw a house that checked all the boxes, we were excited and nervous at the same time, knowing how fierce the competition can be. Johanna prepared ahead of time and helped us wrote a compelling offer which stood out among at least 6 competing offers- and we were not even the highest bidder!
We have recommended Johanna to our friends and everyone speaks highly of her!
Johanna is tirelessly dedicated to her clients. She is effective, efficient and patient. Being abroad, it was not an easy experience trying to find the perfect property, but Johanna made it possible to feel at ease "shopping and hunting" from abroad. Every concern of ours was met and addressed to our extreme satisfaction. Not only is she a fantastic broker who knows the market, but is a truly genuine person who goes the extra length to deliver an incredible service. I would without a doubt recommend Johanna. By choosing Johanna as your broker, you have the best person in your corner. Take it from us, a couple of type A personalities!
Extremely professional, and patient. This was a first time "Jumbo" loan purchase for me, and was something I needed to be financially and emotionally ready for. Johanna was extremely patient and empathetic! No pressure, which was key for me. Patience. Timely responses. "Can do" attitude. Willingness to jump in and support as needed. I was traveling to India, and the entire transaction was seamless.
We are super lucky to work with Johanna Cox in finding our first home as a newly engaged couple.
Among many super powers Johanna processes, the following three impressed us the most and have been instrumental in landing us at our beautiful new home.
1. Passion for what she does.
When I first reached out to her regarding my desire to find a single family house on the east side, she quickly put together 6 recommendations. And guess what, one of the 6 becomes our new home! We called her right after we saw the house, and she made time to come over and meet with the seller’s agent with a very short notice. She strongly believes in what she does, which translates into the highest work ethic and enthusiasm.
Her communication is always prompt and candid. The speed of her reply is shockingly fast, regardless of the day of the week or time of the day. She kept a very open conversation with us and with the seller’s agent, and her effort proved to be instrumental in getting us the house. All parties enjoyed working with her very much.
3. End-to-end white-glove level guidance.
She is with us throughout the whole process, from house hunting to negotiation to financing to the final signing. I felt very reassured in trusting her with following through the whole process. We were out of the country for 2 weeks prior to the closing, and I felt reassured knowing Johanna was there to take care of all the logistics.
We couldn’t be happier with Johanna, the super woman who made the would-be-exhausting process a rather pleasant experience for us.
"Johanna is very kind, patient, professional and responsible. I feel lucky to have her as my broker.
She paid lots of attention to our expectation of the new home, and put herself into our shoes when selecting the potential condos. Every time we found a possibility, she scheduled the visit to take a look right away. When we had concerns, she understood our concerns and never push us or convince us. She is so patient and kind during the whole progress. After we selected the condo (which satisfied our expectation very much), she analyzed the property value and market condition professionally and gave us helpful advice. She explained the documents patiently and clearly to help me understand what they mean. She is very professional and efficient when processing all the documents.
Thanks Johanna so much for helping us purchasing a new perfect home. She is highly recommended, she always thinks in your angle and being patient. Her work is very professional and I trust her a lot. Don’t hesitate! Choose her as your future broker! :D”
We’ve just ended one 2-year-journey to find an appropriate house in Seattle since December 2015 with Johanna’s dedicated professional service. Over the past two years, Johanna is always patient to understand our needs, provides insight of the current market trends with corresponding advice/recommendations.
She was so patient to listen the arising issues and shared every detail she could do for us. By sacrificing her weekends, a numerous listed properties were available for us to discuss at the right time. We have to present our apologies to her family as she spent lot of later evening/night time writing emails, phone call and discussions on the options we should go with.
We could imagine how much time/efforts she made in the last month to help us making the decision from various options, and go with every step with us until it is closed. Beyond this normal professional process, we have obtained more valuable advice/recommendations from her on subsequent service/process such as house inspection; liaise with Escow service; repair a few minor defects; insurance and house-leasing, which takes care everything could be hard for us to think about. Post settlement, Johanna is still helping us to organize the reparing and checking w/ seller and leasing agent etc.
In short, She has taken care every hard subject for us from Day 1 and you, as a buyer, should be very confident she is that right person to go with the journey again.
Johanna is highly recommended by one of my friends, and I have to say that it is the best recommendation I've ever gotten! Johanna is professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and always puts a smile on her face. She always keeps me updated and replies to my email in a very short time. Facing very tough competition, I still got my dream house thanks to Johanna's hard work. It's worth mentioning that it was the first offer I made! Johanna was excellent in every way and highly recommend her to anyone!
Johanna very much exceeded our expectations. Very good at communicating with us, keeping us up to date on various steps in the sales transaction. She recognized the sensitivities of initially dealing with my 94 year old mother, and assured us that we (my wife and I) would be consulted on all aspects of the transaction. Because we were from out of town, she was aware we didn't have local contacts for painters, carpet cleaners, house cleaners, etc., so she either put us in touch with these individuals or set them up for us. She followed up to get the work done and to make sure it was done properly after we had to leave town. She also coordinated access to the garage to allow pick-up of some remaining items, and checked mail after we left. She was wonderful. We think we're very lucky to have had Johanna working with us. We were very impressed!
Johanna did a splendid job in helping me find my new home. Her service from start to finish was exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly level, that far exceeded my expectations
Johanna helped us to find a favorite house in Bellevue this May. As foreigners, we are not familiar the laws and common practices on the deal in US, Johanna was very patient and responsive to all our questions and concerns. She sent us numerous videos and photos of different houses until we found the right one. She is very organized and thoughtful, which made it very convenient to work with her. We highly recommended Johanna as your future broker.
Johanna - It has been more than a month and a half since I made an offer for this home. Without your help, it would have been extremely difficult to find such a nice home for my family, especially considering the current insane market. You've been a wonderful captain for this short, but interesting journey. You'll be greatly appreciated as long as we stay in this home, and most probably, even after that.
Best broker we have ever worked with! Extremely responsive and quick to return your call with the details you requested. She was there to help ensure that we were ready for our showings, and provided great feedback. We received the absolute best possible price for our home. She was excellent!
She was very professional and exceeded our expectations!
Very pleasant cooperation with Johanna, she is very professional, responsible, reliable, her expertise has given us a lot of help, she managed to help us buy a favorite house. She is a trustworthy agent.
Johanna gave very professional services. She understood our need very clearly and set a good search criteria for us. She is so nice to bring us to tour a lot of houses that we were interested in. She is very patient and we always received very quick response from her whenever we had any questions or needed help.
Friendly and professional! She takes the time to explain any questions you have, and is extremely flexible with her schedule. She returned calls quickly, and made time for any of our needs and questions. She quickly understood the type of home we were looking for, and did lots of pre-work to help us find our perfect home. She was awesome!
I appreciate everything Johanna did for me, she's great!
Outstanding communication skills. Professional, and an absolute pleasure to work with! This market is so crazy, and yet she found us the perfect home, and was able to get it for us, even though there were multiple offers. We had an excellent experience, and highly recommend her to anyone!
