“Working with Ed for my first home-buying experience was great. He was very patient with the process, never once did I get the feeling that he felt as if I was wasting his time. I had actually tried a couple other realtors a few years back and the difference was refreshing. Ed gave me the respect I expected, and the guidance that I needed thru a process I knew very little about. Ed surrounds himself with a team of people who are as diligent and dedicated as he is to making the process as smooth as possible. I ended up in a condo which is exactly what I wanted, and experienced no buyers remorse. Ed did not pressure me into making a decision, or settling on something I did not want. I have, and will continue to recommend Ed to anyone I know of in the market for a new home, because I have no doubt that he will exceed their expectations, as he did mine.”–Robin Dunn - Purchased home in Oceanside, CA

Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know how satisfied I am with the real estate service you provided.

Trying to sell my 4000 sq. ft. custom home during a bad time to sell, was not easy. But you came through with flying colors and a get-it-done attitude - even when another real estate agent could not. It was indeed a beautiful home on an acre but truly not the home for the average buyer. It was also a trying time for me personally - and that was also handled with care. It was your determination, knowledge, and great communication skills that did the job. ...and we got more than asking price! Thank you and recommendations are one thing. But the true sign of appreciation for a service well done - is repeat business. Choosing you and Pat Koch Real Estate when I was ready to buy was a no-brainer. It seems like we looked at a hundred homes - and although I got a bit frustrated at times not finding what I wanted - YOU were always there and upbeat with a new list of homes to look at. 'Next!' The extra effort you went through, and numerous communications to selling agent to secure my new home, during multiple offers, was and is a testament to your RE skills.
Sometimes professionalism in the real estate business without the 'stuffed shirt' attitude is hard to find. But you certainly have the right balance. – Ralph Frantz - Listed and sold home in Vista, CA / Purchased home in Oceanside, CA

My husband and I were introduced to Ed when we were searching for a property to build on. We did start out looking at a home to purchase and Ed was very diligent in finding properties for us to looking at. He previewed all properties we were interested in prior to taking us to see them to assure they matched our requirements. When we eventually found a property to purchase, Ed’s actions and follow up with us and with the listing agent were impeccable. We were actually on a cruise when the offer was accepted and Ed went beyond expectation in making sure the deal would close. We have now retained Ed to sell our home and we are confident he will provide the same excellent level of service in selling our property as he did in assisting us purchase a property. Ed is a true professional and dedicated to his line of work.–Keith and Connie E. - Purchased a LOT in Murrieta, CA / Listed Home in Oceanside, CA

Ed Johnson sold my Condo in Oceanside. At the time there were 4 other condo’s exactly like mine in my complex, but mine sold!!! Ed has that perfect combination of being detail oriented and great follow through skills plus he’s just a pleasure to work with. I have recommended him several times and EVERYONE that I have recommended him to always comes back to me and thanks me for doing so!!! Can’t get any better than that!

When my husband and I started our house search we were naive regarding how exactly the market worked and how much house we could really get. The one thing we knew was that we had a firm budget to meet the goals/plans we have for our family. Ed was excellent at listening to our needs (and wants) and creating searches that were geared towards our likes and dislikes. He also took the time to teach both of us what we were up against in the market - he is extremely knowledgeable regarding the housing market and can break it down in ways for both husband and wives to understand and let's be honest, men and women understand these things differently! Ed gave expert counsel on how/what to bid so that our VA loan status was taken seriously (buying a home with a VA loan in today's market was a bear to say the least). He really took the time to get to know us so we never wasted time looking at homes that wouldn't work for us. I honestly have to say that my husband and I ended up with our dream home (which is a huge thing for a couple to agree on!!!) at a great price, largely due to Ed's guidance and negotiations and his amazing patience with us. Thanks so much!! Laura and Alex Cherevchenko–Laura and Alex C. - Purchased a home in Fallbrook, CA

Working with Ed as my realtor was a pleasure, In the two years we spent searching for the right property, I always felt as though Ed had my best interest in mind and he never lost patience with the process. Ed made sure I was well informed and knew exactly what I was entering into. Due to the price range I was looking at properties often fell below my expectations. However, Ed kept me optimistic and hopeful that the right property was out there he was always light hearted and never judgmental. Even when Ed knew I would probably not like a property that I requested to view he would view it with me, allowing me to come to my own conclusions. Through excellent communication and resilience on Ed's part with the mortgage company and myself, I closed on a property that meets all my needs and I have no buyers remorse. If there is anything I miss about the home buying process, it is having the opportunity to work with Ed. Sincerely, Laurie L. –Laurie L. - Purchased a home in Oceanside, CA

As a first-time home-buyer I was extremely anxious about the logistics of purchasing a home. Luckily a friend recommended Ed Johnson. She assured me that he would take his time to walk me through the process and I was not disappointed. At no time did I feel pressured to make a decision. Ed's patience and understanding helped to make a stressful decision much more manageable. Furthermore, his extensive knowledge of the real estate market helped me to find the right home and I am confident that it was his expertise that made all the difference.
