Joy Aumann

    • "Both Tina and myself wanted to let you both know how invaluable your advice and guidance has been with both the purchase of 5614 Dolphin Place and the sale of our home at 423 Westbourne Street in La Jolla. Your negotiating skills are spectacular, particularly with the unusual way in which we structured the purchase contract. Your people skills allowed us to work with the listing agent at Dolphin Place and ultimately convince the sellers to accept our terms of an extended settlement which allowed us time to sell and settle Westbourne. With regard to the sale of Westbourne, your marketing skills were literally the most impressive I have ever seen. Not only did you arrange for various contractors to come into Westbourne over a 48 hour period to get the home into mint show condition, but you also brought in one of the top videographers to put together a stunningly beautiful photographic representation of the home on the internet listing. The photographer also put together a sixty photo slide show that created total buzz and excitement for the home that brought us a first day contract for $90K over the listing price as well as over 100 people at the open house the following day. When the first contract fell out of escrow for a financing technicality that the buyers(who were pre-qualified)had no control over, you very quickly produced a full cash buyer that was willing to close in five days with no contingencies whatsoever. You also kept the buyers believing that the property was "hot" and would sell quickly if they faltered in any way. There is no doubt in my mind that you are both going to be the top producers in California in the future. Your dogged persistence, superb people skills and phenomenal work ethic insure a very successful future for both of you. I will refer you to as many individuals as possible. Many thanks to both of you for your incredible advice, skill and ultimate successful results on both Westbourne and Dolphin Place."

    • Working with Joy was great, she is so professional and most important there was always honesty in the transaction. Thank you guys!!

      - Ricardo Rodgriguez, historic home Bankers Hill property
    • Joy and Rob sold me my La Jolla home and I love every bit of it and of the experience. I had previously worked with dozens of agents and never felt fully confident the agent was on my side. But I can 100% trust Joy & Rob to be honest, straight forward and trust worthy. This is invaluable and in fact, I've kept them both as now dear friends after working with them. Joy's knowledge of the market and home ownership of high end properties is endless and response time is always quick and helpful. I highly recommend Aumann Bender & Associates.

      - Tamlyn Orlando, New York City Rockette
    • Joy and Rob are a power-house real estate team. Working with them have been absolutely awesome. Their professionalism, their knowledge of the market and their communication is second to none. I've seen first hand how they represent their clients best interests, because we've had the pleasure of working together on a number of real estate transactions. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home in San Diego.

      - Greg Ives, Account Executive and Title Insurance Rep at First American Title and SD Title Team
    • Joy Bender and Rob Aumann did a fantastic job helping us locate our new house in Crosby Ranch, negotiating a good deal for us, and guiding us through the closing. My husband and I highly recommend them as experts who can help you find and purchase a new home, or sell your home for the right price! I've already recommended them to several friends and will continue to do that.

    • Joy helped us buy our dream home as we lived out of state. Her communication with us through this process was perfect. She gave us all the information we asked for to help us make an informed decision. She always had our best interest in mind. We could not have done it without her. She is the BEST.

    • Rob Aumann and Joy Bender are the absolute best!! Recently, I had the opportunity to work with Rob, Joy and their team. I have witnessed first-hand how their creative marketing strategies yields results for both the residential buyers and sellers that they represent. On one occasion, they even got Rolls Royce to come and hold a private event at one of their listings! This team of professionals is the definition of class, and I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone in need of their services.

      - Josh Braddock, Founder Braddock Law APC
    • AS GOOD AS IT GETS!! Seriously, I feel so honored to have met Joy and Rob! I have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with them and witness first hand how incredibly they conduct business! They go above and beyond for their clients, they offer services that no other real estate team offers, they are trustworthy, personable, and beyond knowledgeable about the market! If you are selling, their compass concierge service will ensure you get the BEST offer possible for your home and if you are looking to buy they know the ins and outs of the market like no other and they will find the perfect home for you based on your needs. I can guarantee you won't find a better team if you're looking to buy or sell your home and I would recommend their services over and over again! Thank you Joy and Rob for being so amazing at what you do! San Diego Real Estate Agents at its finest!

    • We worked with Joy Bender to stage one of their listings for sale. The experience of working with Joy and Rob is refreshing. The Aumann Bender team is committed to very high standards of professionalism for their clients. As part of the real estate industry having worked with many buyers, sellers, real estate agents, I was impressed to see their unique marketing and action plan to help sell their listed homes. One of their many tactics I personally experienced was a very successful and well planned open house party with the ingredients of reach, quality and appeal for the specific buyer demographic. Great marketing, food truck, neighborhood out reach, personal attention to detail all came together in a single initiative. As part of the open house I could see potential buyers walk-in impressed. The Aumann Bender team are definitely among some of the finest San Diego real estate agent teams in the industry.

    • Rob and Joy are a pleasure to work with. In my business I work mainly through referrals and only work with professionals who are kind, competent and treat clients with the utmost respect. In my experience with Rob and Joy they check all of the boxes. They are consummate professionals and a pleasure to work with. Our most recent interaction with a shared client was so efficient because of their attention to detail. And our shared client raved about their service.

      - Brian Crumbaker, Owner Brightway Insurance
    • We had a great experience working with Joy to sell our home in San Elijo Hills. She made the process extremely easy and was very knowledgeable about the market. I would recommend Joy to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the area. If we ever decide to move back to San Diego, I will be giving her a call.

      - Angela Brasseur-Hill Aromatherapist, Owner of Wellaroma
    • Joy worked with my wife and I on a cross-country relocation from Boston to San Diego. Joy helped educate us on the market and provide us with a variety of options to consider (urban vs suburban, inland vs costal, school divisions, proximity to local attractions, etc...). We felt very informed during the transaction and at the time of writing (six months post closing) we feel we made the right decisions for our family. We highly recommend the use of Joy's services. Feel free to reach out to me directly with any questions you may have on our experience.
