Pj Johnsen

  • Pj helped me buy a home

      I loved working with PJ. She made out home buying experience so easy, always stayed in communication with us, and was there with her team every step of the way. Because of her diligence we were able to close in right about 3 weeks! I recommend PJ to anyone looking for houses from a single family starter to 7 bedrooms on acreage. She is great at what she does!

    • PJ was very professional, fun and well connected in the community. She was quickly able to take care of details and put our minds at ease. The house sold quickly and she moved the process along making the settlement of my father's estate smooth as possible.

    • Pj let us know what our house was worth and how to prepare for the sale. She is always professional each time we met. Pj was very upbeat and positive. Our house sold quickly and we were able to relocate in the timeframe we needed. Thank you PJ for all your help. You made it easy.

    • PJ is the best agent. She is extremely professional and takes care of her clients from beginning to the end and beyond contract. This is our fourth transaction with PJ as our agent and I would not use anyone else. How she applies herself to her profession is dedication and a love of what she does.

    • We recently sold our rental home in California, after we moved out of state. Paula Johnsen (PJ) is absolutelythe most professional and knowledgeable broker in the area. Her expertise, patience and persistence ingetting our home sold was above and beyond expectations. She was always available, consistently kept usup to date and was in touch with not only us, but the buyers and the tenant. If you EVER are consideringselling your home or buying one in the area we would highly recommend her as the number one person tocontact. Thank you PJ for an amazing job well done!

    • PJ is easy to communicate with and has a sense of humor andwas always ready to calm the nerves when needed. PJ waseven there "just to talk" when all new news was delivered. Thesale of the house went quickly and easily which I hear isunheard of but we're happy sellers nonetheless. We can notthank PJ enough for the hard work and efforts on her end to getour family relocated.

    • PJ was so easy to work with on the sale of our first home and currently she is working on the sale of our second home. She exceeded our expectations and we are so happy with the outcome! She responds quickly to calls/emails/texts and always has a positive attitude. She's super friendly and by far the best real estateagent we have ever worked with! We will definitely recommend her to our family and friends in the future!

    • It was a pleasure to work with Paula. She was tenacious when negotiating difficult terms. She always put ourinterests first

    • My husband and I had known Paula Johnsen for about twelve years before we decided to sell our home. We have known PJ to always be helping in the community be it selling fireworks at the Ione Business Association stand or supporting her neighbors in their time of need. She has been someone Ive admired for her friendliness, helpfulness, and knowledge of the real estate market. So when it came time to part with our home, we didnt hesitate to call PJ.You seem to hear stories about real estate agents whom dont give you their time and effort to successfully get through the selling process. My husband and I never doubted that PJ was always giving 100% to selling our home. I could call, text, or email PJ with questions or concerns, and I was sure to hear back from her that day or the next. She made us a priority even though she was and still is juggling many commitments in her life as a wife, mother, friend, community volunteer, and realtor.If you are looking for a realtor who truly cares about you and your real estate needs, PJ Johnsen is the realtor for you. We cant thank her enough for everything she did to sell our home.

    • am a 41 year old single father of three with two children living with me full time. I am a first timehome buyer and have spent the last four years getting back on "my Feet". I believe none of whichwould have been possible if it were not for Paula Johnsen my Realtor. I approached Paula about buyinga home without knowledge of where or how to begin this process or if I was even eligible to purchase ahome. I have had some hurdles and hiccups along the way and understand this can be normal, but itseems my experience was a little beyond normal. Paula is outstanding, courteous, respectful, ethicaland very professional. I am very grateful for having her as my agent she helped make my experiencewonderful and had it not been for her would have probably turned a little bitter towards the Real Estateworld. I needed someone to hold people accountable and honest and Paula did just that. I don'tbelieve I would have been in my new home if it were not for Paula and her professionalism I was quitethe pest and bugged her a lot and she would just calm me down and do what she does best.. I knowthat Paula goes above and beyond for her clients and I will use her again in the future and she is highlyrecommended. I am very blessed to have had Paula in my life.Sincerely,.~

    • I met PJ through a friend and at the time was working with another agent, which I was not happy with. My home buying price range contained a lot of short sales and foreclosures, and my agent did not seem to have a clue as to how to handle them. My friend told me PJ was a short sale expert, and got us in touch. From the moment I first talked with her on the phone, I knew she meant business! She explained step by step what had happened with my transaction, and told me how it should have happened. Needless to say when it fell through (as PJ predicted), I dumped my agent and went with PJ. Because PJ lives in Amador County, and I live in Santa Clara County, she networked me with an agent in my area, while PJ was doing her short sale magic in the background. I did get a short sale transaction accepted shortly after working with her, but ended up getting a regular sale home only a couple of months after working with them. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a home, especially if it is a short sale. My parents live in the same county as PJ, and they know people who used PJ as an agent before I met her, and we have all heard nothing but fabulous things about her. I would not have gotten my home, had I not been introduced to PJ.-Christy Chalfant - Buyer San Jose

    • PJ Johnsen is absolutely fabulous!Relocating is never fun, but with PJ as our selling agent it became much less stressful. We relocated from Stockton to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. Everyone thinks their home is special and it needs the right person to ensure potential buyers will see what a gem your home really is. We interviewed three agents and chose PJ because she really did her homework. Our home was as energy efficient as they came and even had solar panels that generated electricity. PJ had done her research to show what the actual value of the house was given there were no comparables. She told us her plan to market and show the house and everything she told us happened. All good! Based on her hard work we had multiple offers above the asking price within the first five days. PJ exceeded our expectations in what we needed for a long distance agent. When there were issues, a popped sprinkler head, PJ handled it. I would recommend PJ as an agent to anyone having to go through the relocation process.
