Surterre Properties

 

They say “Home is where the heart is” - and that’s definitely true for me. Home is truly where MY heart is - so much so, that I’ve made it my commitment, and career, to help match my clients’ hearts with their just-right homes. For me, real estate is, at its roots, about helping people and that’s what drives me to achieve, day in and day out. 

Driven by this client-centered philosophy, I’ve become one of coastal Orange County’s premier agents, recognized as a luxury real estate expert who is respected by my peers and clients alike for delivering exceptional results. I pride myself on staying ahead of the curve on real estate sales and marketing trends, knowing

every nuance of the markets I work within, and my ability to conduct complex negotiations successfully. My clients’ best interests are always at the forefront and I deliver the industry’s best service, most responsive communication, and meticulous attention to detail and transparency at every step of every transaction.  

Thanks to my sincere passion for making my clients real estate dreams come true and my tireless work ethic, I’m fortunate to have built a loyal following of repeat and referral clients and to amass nearly $400 million in sales - including numerous record-breaking transactions - since 2011.

TESTIMONIALS 

Jojo and Jim from the Watson team were incredible to work with! They met with my husband and I right away, made impactful modifications to furniture and staging, were so efficient with all showings and provided feedback from each! In 3 months, we had 2 offers and sold our home. They know TurtleRidge inside and out! They are so great to work with! Highly recommend!

- Annie

Joele was amazing to work with. First she found us our dream home and then negotiated diligently to beat out two other offers. I know how hard and long she worked for us and I am so grateful. She doesn't take NO for an answer and will work very hard on behalf of you, her client. And a bonustoo, you probably will end up being friends with her because she is so great to work with.

- Catherine

We worked with Jim, Jojo, and Tom of the Watson Team and THEY are the BEST!! Look no further for a more professional and friendly team. I met Jojo while I was browsing in Turtle Ridge at one of her open houses. Turtle Ridge blew me away and I knew this would be an amazing place for our family tolive and grow. Jojo is friendly and very personable...my husband and I loved her.

- The Cobbs

 

Jojo and Jim were a real pleasure to work. Their in depth knowledge of the market, neighborhoods, and potential buyers is superb, and resulted in a record sale for us early this year and still a record for our neighborhood. They cut through the noise and identify the key and criticalelements of a listing, potential buyers, and their negotiation radar was right on point. Highly recommend them!

- Angel

Jojo was extremely professional and easy to work with. I would highly recommend her and will use her services again in the future. Even after closing Jojo was very helpful with following up and giving advice and I feel she went above and beyond her duties as a realtor to make the entire process gosmoothly.

- Austin

Jojo sold my home for me in early 2016. Because of some unique circumstances we had a couple of buyers fall out of escrow. This gave my wife and I a chance to experiencethe complete value of her service. She was an expert from beginning to end and gave us great guidance in things like repairs to make, negotiating the terms of the agreement, advertising the property, etc. I would highly recommend Jojo.
