Joan Castro’s Recommendations

Joan is at the top of her game-deeply passionate about finding the right property for her clients-exceptionally knowledgeable about the “real” market regarding pricing-both for buyer and seller-very patient and considerate of clients unique needs and nuances-provides very clear and directional thought on what is achievable and what is not, and has a distinct capability of “sensing” what is the right property for each specific client. She did a masterful job in managing the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our present one, while showing considerable understanding of our specific needs-she takes the anxiety out of the process with class, humor and an incredible attention to detail…J Newman

Joan Castro is the consummate Realtor; knowledgeable, dedicated and as hard working as any I’ve ever encountered (and I’ve bought and sold more the 15 properties). Joan is focused at all times on results and always has her sights on delivering to her clients all that is possible while still keeping both parties objectives in mind. I unequivocally recommend her! …B. Allman

What a wonderful experience my husband and I have had with Joan Castro. I would recommend her highly to anyone when purchasing a new property. Her experience and knowledge of the area was a tremendous help in locating our home. A true professional from beginning to end, even after closing she has continued to contact us with helpful information.

Have worked exclusively with Joan Castro for more than 8 years. Her level of representation exceeds that of all other agents I have had occasion to work with. She is tops…E. Whtehead

Joan Castro represented me as a seller and a buyer of homes in Indian Ridge Country Club. She did a great job in explaining to me the realities of what my home would sell for and did a great job in negotiating the purchase of a home where she represented me and the seller…S. Smith

Joan Castro is the best realtor we’ve come across in 15yrs of purchasing and renting investment properties. Not only is she efficient and produces results, but she takes a personal interest in your properties. That personal service saved us thousands of dollars in home repairs…G.Bochenski

My husband and I could not be more pleased with our agent, Joan Castro. She worked with us for 5 months in finding the right home, location, and price. She always made herself available whenever we had a question or concern. Despite being on a budget, having a specific location in mind, and with limited inventory in the desired area, we got the home we wanted–size, location, and price. Even after we closed on escrow, Joan was there to help us in the transition process, providing contact numbers or anything else we needed. We would definitely recommend her, especially for first-time buyers like us …N. Gutteriez

Joan is the consummate professional. and a real dynamo From the beginning, I had complete confidence and trust in her and knew that I could rely on her to get me through the process of buying a house. She is honest, patient and very even tempered, even in the face of my silly questions and requests. Added bonus: she is fun to be with! I have had associations with numerous real estate agents in the past, in different parts of the country, to buy and sell properties. Joan is by far the best. I recommend her without qualification. J Ellinson

Joan is very knowledgeable with regard to real estate law and transaction procedures. Our relationship with with her was enjoyable, efficient, and informative.

I have worked with Joan on three occasions (selling, leasing and buying). She is incredibly knowledgeable, responsive and efficient. She listens well and guides and suggests to get you to your desired outcome. She is aggressive in negotiating the deal to “get it done”.

“Joan Castro has been the absolute best and most professional real estate broker I have EVER dealt with””She has been beyond amazing in every aspect-then went beyond that in her attention to every detail” She has made us more than excited about our move to The Ridge”…  J. Newman

oan Castro was my real estate broker during a recent sale of property within the Monterey Country Club. She was outstanding in all aspects of marketing the property including staging, publicizing, and pricing. Added to that, she was enthusiastic, creative, professional, and a joy to work with. The house sold on opening day for more than the asking price with all bidders willing to pay cash and  accepting a short escrow. I highly recommend Joan to all parties wishing to sell residential property in the Coachella Valley…J. Fliege

I am a real estate attorney with almost 40 years of experience and have dealt with both commercial as well as residential brokers during my career. Joan Castro is without a question the best broker I have ever dealt with in my many years of my law practice. Joan’s services as my broker went far beyond the responsibilities of a broker. She has a vast knowledge of not only the market but an array of other service professionals to assist any purchaser with any improvements or repairs needed in any home. Joan has made me a life long fan as she is the consummate real estate broker who sets the standard for others to follow… R. Chernette

Joan Castro is, without a doubt, a spectacular real estate broker. She is a mover and a shaker and gets the job done in a very professional and highly skilled manner. After my house was on the market for 1 year with other brokers ( and not a single offer ), I hired Joan and what a refreshing change. For a very modest cost, she staged the house, developed a first class set of photographs/brochures, and sold the house the very first day it was on the market. I got two offers for more than the listing price, both coming in for all cash and an 18 day escrow. Eighteen days later escrow closed. Hooray for Joan! …E Piton

Joan recently handled the sale of our home in a manner that was totally professional while also adding a very personal touch. She is the epitome of “being on top of things” and is very conversant with proper and rapid real estate transactions. J Gaston

Love you guys.” Richard & Kim Weaver, Best In The West HVAC

Joan and her team have performed above and beyond w/ my Palm Desert sale of my home! With her background and dedication, she made the process simple, concise, professional and actually quite delightful! I would never consult and/or hire anyone but Joan Castro!! …J. Apaydin

My husband and I were very happy with our services from Joan Castro and would highly recommended using her again.Our home had been on the market a long time before we listed with Joan Castro. She re-staged the home and sold it within a month.Thank you Joan! …M. Archibald

Joan is a true professional in this industry. Her services were of top quality in all respects. She was available to work us at any hour of the day or night throughout this process. She had to deal with a difficult seller’s representative and there were many serious issues. Even after the deal closed and we moved into our new home, Joan offered her assistance to help us get indoctrinated into our home and the country club. As indicated above, we would highly recommend Joan to any interested buyer or seller. M. Gordon

Joan is knowledgeable, professional, and honest. I would not hesitate to use her again in a real estate transaction. M Bachman

Joan Castro has represented me on more than 1 real estate transaction in Palm Desert. She has always gone out of her way for me, once finding me a house to buy that was not even on the market. Joan knows her market and goes above and beyond for her clients. J Davis

Joan listed the home at the right price and sold it fast. She stayed on top of all the details needed to complete a sale and made sure the buyers stayed on track. Very professionally handled! P. Paige

Joan spent a great deal of time with us finding our home. She was very professional and stayed diligently on task and helped negotiate our transaction. She also sold our other home and did an outstanding job. D. Bottom

Joan was extremely thorough and did her due diligence in finding me the right home and provided me with helpful service to make the move easier. We remain in contact 5 years after the sale that give you insight I was not just a sale but now a friend. She is a super agent and I recommend her highly! C. Heathman

Joan Castro and her associates were a joy to work with in selling our Palm Desert home. She is more than a “me too” agent in that she made every step of the process as easy as it could be. She is someone that does what she says she will do when she says she will do it, a rare breed for sure.
When it came to doing the inspection repairs her husband, Jim, took charge and made sure every item was done in a professional manner and in a way that the buyer would want it done. Since we live out of the area, that was a huge relief not having to deal with the various vendors.
She has a vast knowledge of the market and what can be realistically be accomplished. There was no BS to get the listing and then deal later with the reality of the pricing. Everything was done right the first time.
There are lots of great real estate agents in the desert, but surely she has to be at the top of the list. R. Day

Joan represented the vendors on our recent purchase of 958 Fire Dance Lane. As well, Joan concurrently represented a tenant who leased our former residence in Indian Ridge. Joan was extremely helpful and professional in all of our dealings. Both my wife and I are delighted to recommend Joan for your real estate needs in the Coachella Valley. T. Farley

We would not have bought our home without Joan’s tremendous follow-up. She is an excellent listener, fun to work with and a consummate professional. I highly recommend Joan as your Palm Desert realtor, she will truly help you find exactly what you are looking for & do it in gracious way. I highly recommend Joan and I am thankful for her help in finding our new home.  S. Huling
