"We could not be happier with our decision to work with Jojo Soriano on the sale of our home in Hercules. After 10 years of being in our first home it was time to prepare our home to sell. It was crucial that we chose the right realtor because we were under a strict timeline, we were moving out of state due to employment circumstances. We did not want to leave California without our home being sold first. From the moment we decided to move forward Jojo he gave us first-class treatment throughout the entire process. He was always available via phone call, text, or email. He answered all of our questions with patience, explaining every detail to us. He was always cheerful and hardworking, honestly I never saw him frustrated when we hit a bump or asked a bunch of questions. He gave guidance to us with best options to prepare our home to sell, but never pressured us. He works with many local businesses in the area, which was also very helpful to us when choosing companies for any work we wanted to have done. They were all very professional and honest. We followed his lead every step of the way and in less than two weeks we had multiple offers above the listed price on our home! We are forever grateful!! Jojo runs his business with the highest integrity and has area knowledge, specific to Hercules, unlike most others who buy/sell in the area. He truly is The Hercules Realtor. "
"Jojo was amazing to work with! Very knowledgeable and always had our best interest in mind. I highly recommend him. Our purchase went fast and smooth and we are so happy with our new home!"
"Jojo made the sale of our home a very positive experience. Jojo is very professional, has an eye for artistic detail producing excellent marketing materials, demonstrated exceptional negotiating skills ($40,000 over asking day one) unbelievable enthusiasm, immediate responsiveness to any question/call night or day.....he has it all! Plus someone you can walk away and call a friend. Highly recommended for selling or buying."
"Jojo is an excellent, top notch agent. He helped us sell our condo in Hercules. He staged the place like it was a 5 star resort, took very professional photos and brochures that brought many buyers (we got multiple offers on our place). Highly recommended - no better agent in the area!!!"
"Jojo Soriano exceeded all expectations with the sale of our home. He is a consummate professional and I would highly recommend his service to anyone. Throughout the sale of our home he was both informative and patient with our inquiries, and most importantly managed to close our sale at a "higher than expected" price. I can't thank him enough for the hard work done. If you are looking for a realtor who is knowledgeable about the market and is easy to work with, look no further. You won't find anyone better."
"Jojo Soriano is amazing person inside and out. He is very personable while he conducts business. Also, he remains ultimately professional and he works efficiently. It's important to mention that Jojo is an imaculant stage designer too so your house looks amazing and sells fast. Our house was dressed up in a dainty decor that would catch anyone's eye. Very artistic . All in all, Jojo is realistic, committed and deserves more than five stars "
For home sellers positioning their property in the market is crucial, and Jojo does this on a regular basis with high-end marketing materials and stunning photography. Day 1 of marketing a home for sale, buyers need to see that the property is the most desirable pick for their choosing. He collaborates with his sellers, and often manages the preparation, minor cosmetic repairs or renovations, and he’s staged many properties, not only to give buyers an idea on how the space could serve as their future dwelling, but also to showcase it in a marketable and attractive fashion – attracting the most qualified and ready buyers. When his sellers follow his lead, the results are always amazingly satisfactory with his home sellers.
As a Realtor®, he brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate in the local area. It's not the same everywhere, so clients need someone that they can trust for up-to-date information. Jojo works with his clients to help them find the right home at the right price, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria they have for their ideal home.
When it's time to move, people need someone who will advertise their home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. Jojo can take care of everything they need, from start to close.
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. Jojo can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help get top dollar during the sale. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls, can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
What makes selling a home under Jojo’s care work so well with his sellers, is simple. He positions your property in the market at a higher level, priced competitively and showcased attractively that multiple buyers would tell their agents “I really want to see this house!” Other agents have said, “Jojo, you make my job easy – my buyer is in love with this house!” When neighbors come to his open house, he often hears them say “Jojo, when I’m ready to sell, you will stage and list my home!” Often, he receives multiple bids, and his sellers are able to select the best offer with the best terms and the highest price. His negotiation skills and marketing strategy have saved his seller's money. His educational background in Marketing & Design (Bachelors Degree at San Jose State University) has positioned him to serve his sellers competitively. With an eye for design, colors and equipped with a high-end, high-resolution digital camera, he has staged, photographed and marketed homes that have won the buyers’ hearts!
