Testimonials

When my wife and I decided to sell our San Diego residence we called John Stenberg immediately because we saw how fast he sold our neighbor's home a year earlier and we had talked with him at that time about possibly selling our home in the future. He was extremely friendly and kind and assured us  that he could do as great a job selling our home as he did our neighbor's. My wife was so enamored with John and his expertise and friendliness that she INSISTED we list with him and after the initial consultation at our home, I agreed. One of the BEST DECISIONS we have ever made - PERIOD!! John is a wonderful person to deal and work with on every level! He is so informative and knowledgeable about the real estate market in San Diego that listing with him is a "no brainer". I was personally impressed with the timeframe John sold our neighbor's home in and was hoping that we'd have the same success with our sale. Well, after John explained EVERY facet of the listing, showing, and selling process, he set up an Open House weekend for the Saturday and Sunday after placing the property on the market the previous Monday. Sunday evening after the Open House was over and we had returned home, John called us with a buyer who wanted to make a FULL PRICE OFFER which we accepted. John SOLD our home in LESS THAN A WEEK! Now THAT should speak for itself and his success as one of the leading real estate agents in San Diego. After the offer/acceptance, John kept us informed with calls and emails as to the processes and actions necessary on our part, the buyer's part, and his part to insure that everything went smooth and things were done to meet the escrow time frame. Bottom line is this: IF you want to sell a home in San Diego county and you want someone who is honest, sincere and has integrity, contact John Stenberg and you will NOT be disappointed. We will always be grateful to John and we consider him a personal friend for life. He is an outstanding real estate agent BUT more importantly than that, he is one fine person!

John Stenberg assisted us during the purchase of our first home in June 2018. It was a pleasure working with someone so professional, honest and efficient. Through the short, easy process we never felt uninformed or anxious of what the next step would be. We are so happy that we met John becuase  all of our need were met. We plan on purchasing an investment property in the near future and already know that the only realtor we'd ask to assist us is John. Thank you for everything, we absolutely love our home!

John and his team were absolutely phenomenal in the sale of our home! After an initial unsuccessful attempt with a different realtor, we found John through Zillow and were immediately impressed with his level of experience & expertise. With Johns help we placed our home back on the market and  received several offers within the first two open houses! During all phases of the sale John and his team kept us well informed every step of the way & made sure everything was handled promptly & professionally. I must say we came in with a lot of doubts, but John & his team did such a phenomenal job words just can't explain. Thanks to John our home sold quickly and we were able to move out of state within our desired timeframe! If you're buying or selling your home and want the absolute best in San Diego, choose John & his team, you wont be disappointed!

Before choosing a real estate agent, we conducted a lot of research to see who would be the best choice based on the investment they make into selling the property (time and effort,  not necessarily financially) and how they promote their listings. John and his team stood out as the best Chula Vista has to offer. Their presentation to us was strong and it was evident they put a lot of work into their listings. We spoke with John and met with him at our home. He spent hours answering our questions, providing objective data regarding how many homes they sell, how long their listings typically stay on the market, providing tons of info on comps in the area. John answered all of our questions and concerns in stride. Nothing we asked John during our meeting rattled him. It was obvious his experience and professionalism is the primary reason he is so successful and has been in the real estate business as long as he has.  John toured our home and reassured us he would have no problems selling our home. John made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps many other Realtors don't (but should), like coming in and and giving us staging tips, having extremely professional photographs taken, and a lot more. When we saw our listing we were blown away. His hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off - our listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition.  Our house went under contract less than a week after we put it on the market at above asking price. We accepted the offer and John along with his team walked us through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. John stayed in contact with us at least every other day during escrow to keep us apprised of the progress.  I would recommended John and his team to everyone I know. He is a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. You'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor.

Being first time homebuyers is extremely overwhelming at times, there are so many different things going on at once and in more places than one as well. We choose to use John Stenberg to help guide us through our first home buying experience. I will start by saying he is professional and always has a smile for you even when he has to work on a Sunday. He went above and beyond for us, making sure every single detail was in line and even helping us with our unrelenting questions. I will use him again if the chance comes for us to buy in SD again. My husband and I are beyond pleased with our new home and the experience as a whole.

I had tried to sell my house for close to 9 months, when I finally switched real estate agents and was introduced to John Stenberg. He was amazingly friendly and helpful, answered all of my questions and made me feel safe and comfortable with the process, (which had become very stressful at this point). John kept me updated and educated on the whole process and within a couple of weeks, my house was sold and I was planning my move! I will always recommend John to anyone looking for help selling their home.
