SEE WHAT JOAN AUGUSTINY’S CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY:
I am writing to say that I would wholeheartedly recommend Joan Augustiny as an excellent agent. I recently worked with Joan on a difficult real estate purchase: difficult, because the seller wanted to change the terms of the sale while it was in progress. By that, I mean, I had made an all cash full price offer on a property which is very specific to my needs. Even though, it was an excellent offer, the seller countered twice asking for more money, as much as $100,000 over asking price on a property with no other offers. I was absolutely flabbergasted by this action. But because the property suited my very specific needs, I agreed to split the difference. This was turned down by the seller, and the offer died. A few weeks later, the seller wanted to reinstate the offer, and I purchased the property. During this whole saga, Joan displayed confidence, patience, good counsel and really worked hard to make this deal work. If there was something she didn’t know, she didn’t hesitate to say so with the proviso that she would find the answer, which she did quickly. This displays honesty and integrity. She was always available. This displays responsibility. She takes great pride in her work which she demonstrates by not allowing even the smallest detail to go unnoticed or unresolved. If honesty, integrity, responsibility and pride in one’s work are qualities you value, than Joan would be a wonderful agent for your real estate transaction.

Joan Augustiny was the best realtor my family and I could have hoped for! She understood our wants , needs and financial limitations and managed to find us the house of our dreams (in a very competitive market at that.) It was not an easy transaction. There were issues before, during and after escrow, but Joan remained calm and worked with us and the other realtor to see the deal through, maintaining a firm sense of integrity and transparency throughout. She was also a lot of fun to work with (!) making what can be a very stressful process much more enjoyable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.

I had the pleasant opportunity to have Joan Augustiny sell my property. She is a dedicated Realtor with the integrity one would hope for. And in helping me, she often went above and beyond what as expected. I was completely satisfied with our transaction and highly recommend her.

I recently purchased a condo in Pasadena, and I can definitely say that Joan Augustiny facilitated the whole buying process efficiently from start to finish. I couldn’t have done it without Joan. Joan stuck with me all throughout the search process. She devoted a great amount of her time to help me find the right place at the right price. She was very up-to-date on the available listing in my price range and was very attentive to the requirements I was looking for in a condo. She was always responsive to my phone calls and e mails. Joan is also very knowledgeable and gave me practical and professional advice especially during the negotiating process, when I needed it most. I had a great experience with Joan and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home in Pasadena!

My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Joan Augustiny for the past 18 months. Throughout this time, Joan has been thorough and Professional. We have appreciated her constant calmness, solid good work and dedication. Joan’s understanding and interest in our very specific needs has been faultless in the process of finding a suitable property. Joan’s knowledge and insights in to the different neighborhoods has been insightful and honest, and being relatively new to L.A., this has been of enormous help. As we continued our search, we knew we had found the right partner in Joan who intuitively understood our needs. We have no hesitations in recommending Joan to any of our friends and colleagues who, like ourselves, need honest and experienced advice.

We had the pleasure of working Joan Augustiny on several occasions and in the eventual purchase of our new home. As out of state transplants to CA, Joan has been an incredible resource for us as we learn the California and local market. I first met Joan when looking at a rental home 3 years ago. She was with another client and we were working with someone else. I overheard her and her client a bit and was so impressed by the level of work she was doing to help her client. When my mother moved to Pasadena a year later Joan was the first person I called to help my mother find an apartment. I can’t say enough about Joan’s patience, diligence and willingness to work with her clients. Joan has worked with my family for two years as we evaluated options, made offers, changed our minds, and worked through potential deals. Most recently Joan helped us on the purchase of our new home. We love our new home and so appreciate the work that went into helping us be homeowners in California.
