Robin & Mark Dushkin, 1944 Hummock Lane, Encinitas 92024
John was very instrumental during the sales of our old home and for the purchase of our dream home. He was very involved, always being proactive throughout the process, finding exactly what motivated the sellers so we could structure a successful offer. John and Joanie were fully involved in coordinating any updating, home staging, and all needed repairs of our previous home. It sold in less than a week, significantly above the asking price, with multiple offers. They made the entire process easy, especially helping to understanding the massive amounts of paperwork. We have already, and will continue to recommend this stellar real estate team to help achieve your goals.

John Moes made the entire process of selling our home seamless from listing to closing. He is a seasoned professional that was very proactive, demonstrated excellent negotiation skills and answered any and all question in a timely manner. One last noteworthy item, our home sold for $26,000 over asking price in just 5 days! Thank you Mr. Moes
Brooke & Remi Adeyemo, Lucky Fawn Lane, Richmond TX 77406
Joanie Moes is the realtor you want to help you find or sell your home! She helped my husband and I find the perfect home (even though we were moving out of state!) and made the entire experience seamless. From the very beginning of our home search here in San Diego to ultimately working with a new home developer halfway across the country, Joanie answered each and every question we had in a timely and clear manner. She took our wants/needs to heart and truly cared that we found the best home for us.
Not only did Joanie help us discover our perfect home, but she also thoroughly explained the home-buying process to us (we are first-time home buyers). She was always available to us, and we knew she was on top of the entire process. We really felt prepared thanks to her expertise. When paperwork needed to be completed, Joanie got it done so quickly. We knew we could trust her to keep the process on track and not let anything slip through the cracks, so we didn’t have to worry.
If you're looking for someone to help you buy or sell, (or even relocate!) look no further. Joanie Moes definitely ‘knows homes’ and you won't find anyone better.
Nancy Dushkin, San Pablo Dr, San Marcos 92078
I have bought and sold several homes in the past and John Moes proved to be the best realtor I have seen. He went above and beyond all my expectations in making the entire transaction smooth and easy. He carefully reviewed the process and all the paperwork with me ahead of time, made the Docusign part quick and understandable. He brought in skilled resources to remedy issues and remove contingencies, he even facetimed a tour of the property to save me a trip down from Los Angeles. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home in San Diego!
Sandy P Jones, Hidden Valley Lane, Santa Barbara, CA 93108
There's just nothing average about the way Joanie Moes goes about being a realtor. What makes her so awesome is that she gets to the heart of what's important to you, knowing there's so much more to buying a house than square footage and location. She uncovers the intangibles you weren't even aware of yourself, puts it all together, and then doesn't stop until she finds it for you! She's patient and kind, savvy and just the right amount of opinionated. Bottom line, she's the one you want in your corner. Thank you, Joanie, for your tireless help with our home search.
Bob & Mary Harris, 8828 Cherry Hills Rd, Santee 92071
We could not have been more pleased with the attentions he put into selling our home. Mr. Moes took care of everything! All we had to do was be away from the home when he had scheduled showings. When he sells your place, he will put his undivided focus into your property. It all happened in a blur, home was decluttered, prepped and sold within 3 weeks. I have been around lots of talented people during my 19 year career as a Director of Maintenance and Operations. And I've hired my share of individuals. Mr. Moes is a hard working and smart business man. He has numerous contacts in the real estate field and is very well respected. We later found out that the buyers were there the first day it hit the market! You will not be disappointed, if you ask me, he is the person for your job.
Claire & Mark Crandall, Tangerine Lane, Fallbrook 92026
Several years ago, my husband & I had used MoesKnowsHomes to sell our Poway home. We knew during that transaction, John's wife Joanie was a huge support behind the scenes. This time it was so great to have her be the lead agent when we decided to buy a custom lot in Fallbrook to build our dream house. Unprompted, Joanie visited the lot, took photos, measurements and made notes for us. She followed up with the county to confirm utilities, tracked down the association contacts along with countless calls with the seller, ensuring the property was indeed ready to build on. There were other offers on the lot, and with Joanie's counsel, we were the ones who were selected and seamlessly closed on time in this "no-issues" transaction. We couldn't be happier with the attentiveness and follow up Joanie provided. Mark & I highly recommend this husband & wife team to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
Tom & Claire Bai, Jasper Way, Carlsbad 92009
John did a fantastic job guiding us through the purchase of our FIRST HOME in Carlsbad. John represented both us and the sellers in an atypical off-market transaction. At first, as first time buyers, we were apprehensive about this type of scenario. However, it quickly became apparent that John was a true professional and represented us fairly and respectfully throughout the entire transaction. John was always responsive when we needed him and was diligent in follow up on any unanswered items. We really appreciated John's honesty and kindness. We were NOT located in San Diego and during this time but John make sure our "remote" buying process was seamless. After a successful closing, a few minor issues can up before we had moved in. John went above and beyond to personally make sure those items were all addressed! We had a great experience working together and can confidently recommend him to anyone looking for an expert real estate agent. Thank you John!
Ken & Nancy Eckert, Jasper Way, Carlsbad 92009
We were introduced to John through his wonderful wife, Joanie. Ken and I were planning a move outside of the United States and had various requirements around the timing and inclusion of furniture with the sale. John conducted research, presented home comparable sales and offered suggestions on how best to execute the sale long before he presented a listing contract to us. We were fortunate that a buyer came to us prior to listing our home, so even though we had not yet signed an agreement with John, the care and attention he had shown to us were reasons we chose him to represent us. John quickly moved into action and helped us (and the buyers) navigate through the selling process. We were able to close on the home in a very timely manner and rent back for a short time so we could focus on the international move with less stress! John was extremely responsive to our calls and any “small glitches” that are a normal part of selling and buying a home. He coordinated and delivered the forms in a timely and professional manner, everything was seamlessly handled.
John’s high integrity and character are his strongest attributes, both which are critical when selling a home, often your largest single asset. Ken and I highly recommend John and his team to anyone wishing to sell or buy a home.
Suzanne & Marc, Archer and Miles, Sweetwater, Carmel Valley, 92130
My wife and I felt so comfortable with John. Not only did he find us our dream home, he also made selling our old home a breeze. Buying and selling can be stressful, but not with John. We saw both sides of the transaction and truly acknowledge the professionalism, real estate knowledge and personal touch John adds to the experience. During the purchase, John negotiated upgrades with the builder we never thought possible. We felt very confident with the deal and couldn’t have done it without him especially in the incredibly competitive market. After the purchase of our new home, John sold the condo with ease. His understanding of pricing got us more than we anticipated. The photos and staging were amazing but it came down to John’s ability to talk to other agents and buyers that made it happen. John instills confidence and integrity during the entire process and he comes very highly recommended by us.
Steve & Wendy Grubbs, Corte de Comares, Rancho Bernardo, 92128
To whom it may concern: We are writing to express our pleasure in real estate agent, John Moes, (MoesKnowsHomes.com), who represented us in two real estate dealings. John’s excellence of service, warmth, friendliness, reliability and attention to detail has led to our recommending him to many people in our acquaintance. John is a pleasure to work with, which is critically important during the often-stressed circumstances of moving. He took time to understand our buying and selling needs and catered his plan accordingly. As an individual, John is approachable, creative and thorough. He has always been a great support during negotiations and accomplished it all with a remarkable degree of integrity and competency that is difficult to find these days. We highly recommend John for your consideration for your real estate professional.
Marcia and Dave Clingman, Trailwind Rd, Poway 92064
This was the third time we have used John Moes to sell a property of ours. Each time he has exceeded expectations. We decided to sell and downsize and we wanted it to happen now. Selling a house during COVID was a little more complicated, but John took all the precautions seriously, making sure we were protected. Since most people shop the internet first, John made sure to have excellent pictures and video of our property. Together we assessed the furniture inside and made several changes, putting the property in the best light. The pictures and video were great, but the drone shots of our one acre property were spectacular. John promoted the house at local realtor Zoom calls and got the word out! We had 14 showings the first week and 2 very good offers. We picked an offer at the top of the asking price range and the house was sold within a week. There was plenty more for John to do. He negotiated a favorable one month rent back for us, giving us much needed time. He oversaw the termite work and dealt with a pesky solar company, plus found common ground with the buyers on the inspection report. Our house closed without a hitch and we were very pleased with John’s professional handling of our home sale. He is beyond helpful, always pleasant and very nice to work with. We highly recommend him!
Mary Ellen Nakagawa, Sitio Musica, Carlsbad 92009
This testimonial is to express my appreciation to John Moes, a realtor for Professional Realty Services. I met John a few months after my husband had passed away and I was beginning the process of listing our home and moving out of state to be closer to my son and grandchildren. John’s experience and demeanor proved to be invaluable. He enlisted a group of competent contractors to identify and take care of maintenance details while suggesting minor improvements to assure potential buyers saw the full value in our home. Another challenge that John embraced was our nation’s unexpected arrival of the coronavirus two days after the home was listed. John put into place necessary safeguards to protect potential customers and endeavored to meet the needs of all interested buyers. I left California prior to the completion of the sale. In spite of the virus outbreak, he was able to negotiate a full price offer! John stepped up again, facilitating the transition with the new homeowners. John Moes truly exceeded my expectations as he oversaw and resolved all of the challenges that were encountered along the way. Thank you
Thelma Montag, Delage Dr, Encinitas CA
I would like to share my complete satisfaction with John on the recent sale of my much loved home of 42 years. I am a 95 year old widow so I needed a great deal of help. In the short time that it took to list the home, sell it and close escrow, it seemed like John became a caring member of my family. Hi manner was so professional, yet very personal. He made the complexity of selling a home seem easy…and it was!!
Hector Paredes, Via de Caballo, Encinitas CA.
I was fortunate enough to have meet John through his lovely wife, who has been working with me at our nonprofit organization. She has always demonstrated an exceptionally positive attitude and an exemplary work ethic, and I soon learned that these family qualities I quickly noticed with John, too. I had recently retired from Northern California, returned to San Diego area and had my fingers crossed to find a home I could afford in a coastal community. From the first conversation on the phone with John, I drew the impression that he was patient and not as aggressive sales person. Almost immediately he began sending me properties to look at online within my parameters, which he continued for several months, also personally showing me a few. I’m sure I was not the easiest buyer to represent and when we found “that right home,” John worked tirelessly to contact the other agent and ultimately get my offer accepted. John was the consummate professional throughout the purchase of my new home. I very much appreciated his attention to detail with the inspections, his quick access to electricians, plumbers and inspectors and his communications with me were always prompt. Thank you, John, for making this purchase and excellent experience!
Al & Karen McGhee, S. Rancho Santa Fe Rd, #108, San Marcos CA
My wife and I decided it was time to sell our rental property, a mobile home. We asked John Moes to sell it for us mainly because he had sold my mother’s home, in 2015. He was such a professional and great person to my mom. This time we wanted a quick sale. John meet us at the property for review, returned for pictures and placed a sign and posted on the MLS. Within 3 days the home was under contract. Once in escrow, John handled everything so well, it closed in less than 30 days. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. Thank You John!
Steven & Teresa Prince, Rincon St, San Diego CA
John did a wonderful job helping us find our first rental investment property near San Diego State University. As new investors, John listened to our desired goals of finding housing for our son while it also being a future investment for our family. He spent countless hours researching the neighborhoods and properties around the University. Through John’s tireless efforts, we were able to narrow the search to an area that is only a ten minute walk to the SDSU campus.
John really helped foster a level of confidence to the potential seller with our offer and both he and his team were instrumental in closing the transaction in less than 30 days, giving us time to prepare the house for the upcoming school year. There were moments during the process that were difficult, but John’s focus and effort found a winning compromise that was successful in the end.
John’s demonstrated top notch dedication to his clients. He clearly cares about their concerns while being fair to all those involved. His support team is also a reflection of his commitment. We would strongly recommend John to anyone who is looking for a realtor who will go the extra mile for them.
Kathy & John Courtney, Cumberland Dr, Poway Ca.
John recently sold and closed on our home in Poway. He was extremely helpful during the process, advising us on the current market conditions and how to best present our home to fellow agents and potential buyers.
John went above and beyond what we have experienced with other agents. He was extremely generous with his time, offered frequent showings and presented our home in the best possible way. Because we were downsizing he assisted with coordinating an estate sale that was very successful and prevented any stress for us as the sellers. We sold our home for the anticipated price in the expected time. Once escrow opened all paperwork was handled very efficiently and timely. We actually were traveling in Europe when the escrow closed, yet everything was taken care of in a manner that made us very comfortable.
We would highly recommend John Moes as a top flight real estate agent who helps both the buyers and sellers fell they have been treated fairly.
Robert Auguste, Neblina Dr, Carlsbad CA.
To whom it may concern: John Moes was my realtor during my recent sale of my Carlsbad home on Neblina Dr. My brother and I both owned the property, but he lives in Los Angeles and I live in Lake Tahoe. It was not possible for us to have a physical presence there during the upgrading the house needed after several years as a rental. John spearheaded all the work, finding qualified painters, carpenters, carpeting, plumbers, electricians, yard service, appliance purchasing, and finally a staging company. His ability to find reliable people at a low price was amazing to me. What could have been a logistics nightmare went very smoothly and the house was ready to sell in a few short weeks. All the work paid off. We immediately received 2 over asking prices offers. Without hesitation, I would recommend John to be your real estate agent. John proved he had the ability to get things done as promised!
Rick and Roxanne Wojan, Via Del Cielo, Fallbrook CA.
We just wanted to thank you John for all the hard work and effort you put into selling our family home in Fallbrook. You took the time and did the research, home comparison sales and solid evaluation of the market, you got the house sold in under 30 days for a good price. All without going to the MLS. It was a pleasure to work with you and it was a very smooth process, in what you knew as not the case in previous transactions. You also helped put us in contact with a terrific estate sale person. The whole thing seemed overwhelming, but in the end, finished great just as you promised.
Again, thank you for everything you did for our family and please don`t hesitate to use us as a reference to anyone thinking of selling their homes, you are #1 in our eyes!! All the best...
Jim Davis & Aimee Silva, Suncrest Dr, Lake Elsinore CA.
My real estate agent, John Moes, has the character that everyone is looking for in a real estate agent. High integrity and great communication, those were most important to us. Aimee and I found our dream house and it had only been on the market a couple days. The problem was, there was an initial open house planned for the coming weekend. We were sure it would sell quickly. John set us up with a lender he trusted and had us pre-approved quickly, then arranged a private showing for the home. We had a private look just prior to the open house and because John had all the paperwork ready, we had an offer in their hands right when the open house started. It was important to be first in line if we were to get our dream house.
Of course, we got the house and that`s when John really went to work! He helped us navigate the forms, inspections and his team kept us right on track. Without John and his team, we would have never made this dream a reality. We recommend John Moes for all your real estate needs! Thanks John!
Phil & Cathy Harris, Dolphin Ct, San Juan Capistrano CA.
John helped us find the perfect home for my family. He listened and understood what we were looking for and found a home that was an exact match for our needs. He negotiated a very fair deal for all the parties and we even came in under our budget. John operates with the utmost integrity and is a trusted resource for any real estate transaction. I highly recommend John to all my family and friends as the go to guy for their real estate needs.
Jim & Lesley Swartout, Rimrock Summit Lane, Escondido CA.
John Moes was instrumental in the recent purchase of our beautiful new home and the sale of our prior home. John orchestrated the closing of both properties within three days of each other (drum roll please) while our entire family was vacationing in Europe! This was accomplished due to John`s tireless efforts and attention to detail.
Further, with John`s help we were in escrow on the sale of our home within days of putting it on the market. He gave us ideas to have the house "sale ready" as soon as it was listed. As we went through the escrow process he assisted us with the home inspections, minor repairs and even moving. The bottom line is that John took an overwhelming process and made it a pleasant experience. We will recommend John and his team to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home.
Laurie Mavis Sargent, Brant Lane, Carlsbad, CA.
John Moes is the best in the real estate business! You will not regret having him handle your real estate sale or purchase! John just helped me buy the home of my dreams and the entire process went so flawlessly, I had to pinch myself! I have bought and sold homes five other times and never has one transaction gone this smoothly!
Buying and selling your primary residence is an emotional process and you need someone you can trust handling the details. John was completely honest with me and always responsive to my calls and emails. Never once, did I feel I got the run-around, but just straight, honest answers from an agent who was on top of the transaction from beginning to end.
Believe me, I`ve had some BAD real estate experiences and I can honestly recommend John Moes without hesitation! He works hard for you and will do the job well!
Kamarae and Tyler Roberts, Camino Gonzales, Temecula CA.
My husband and I knew very little about the whole home purchasing process prior to working with John Moes. He was so patient and answered our countless questions throughout the process of buying our very first home. We were fortunate enough to find our home on the first day of view properties! We toured with John and saw 10 homes that day. After a full day of viewing all over Temecula, we instantly fell in love with the last one. The house we chose was at the very top of our budget, but John had us work with a lender that made it happen. While it was in escrow he even took it upon himself to pay for a roof repair as we didn`t have the necessary funds to cover. John wanted to make sure that the home we were moving into was comfy and ready. If you are looking for an agent that take his time, is patient, cares about his clients and is very prompt to respond to your needs, look no further as John Moes is your guy!!
Eric and Terry Larson, El Tiradore Circle, Mission Viejo CA.
I highly recommend John Moes as your choice of realtor. After my initial inquiry with John, he walked our property, discussed tips and way to improve the curb appeal and how to stage it for maximum appeal. He also came prepared with neighborhood comps and pricing suggestions. We ended up not putting the house on the market for another 8 months. John was there the whole time, giving us routine updates on market conditions and comparable pricing. Once it was time to list, he had a professional photographer take excellent phots, he had a terrific pricing strategy, he had an aggressive marketing plan and strong turnout at the broker open house and the one open house needed. He created a big buzz about the property with local realtors. After 5 days on the market, we had 6 offers to consider, all above asking price. He then suggested a multiple counter offer and all parties upped their initial offers. The house sold in 7 days, well above asking price.
John`s communication was outstanding throughout the process, not only to us, but to all the other agents representing clients interested in our property. He really took the time to personally explain things and answer all questions. John is a true professional, that not only cares about a successful deal, he cares about doing it the right way, showing care and respect to everyone along the way. Have John sell your home, you will be very happy.
Mark and Claire Crandall, Solera Way, Poway CA.
John Moes is the hardest working real estate agent in San Diego! We have bought and sold 10 homes over our life-span, and we have never experienced an agent more creative and hard-working than John Moes. John recently sold our estate home utilizing sales strategies that required investing substantial time investments. Because of these strategies, our home was previewed by over 100 real estate agents serving neighborhoods within many miles of the location of our home. These agents then actively showed our home to their clients, and in the end this is how our home was sold. John is a very effective communicator and was well received by all potential buyers as well as by the other realtors. John has a very special way of making people feel at ease and comfortable. He delivered an update to us on a weekly basis regarding potential clients as well as a market analysis of all real estate activity within our community. John personally previewed all comps as they went on the market, and provided excellent advice to us to ensure our home was well-positioned to sell at the highest price based on the comps. After our home was in escrow, John went the extra mile to find us a new home that could not be a better fit to our needs. Both transactions contained many hurdles and complex negotiation and financing factors. John handled the tensions that come with these situations with the utmost professionalism. His temperament, style of communication, and rapport with all parties involved ensured that the negotiations were 100% successful. It is with confidence and pleasure that we recommend John Moes to handle your future real estate transactions. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more detailed feedback regarding John`s performance.
Jim McGhee, (Jessie`s son) Vista Campana, #43, Oceanside CA.
On March 20, of this year, my family and I had to make a hard and painful decision to move our 94 year old mother, Jessie, into an independent/assisted living complex. Jessie had lived in Oceana, a senior living complex, +55 years and up. Jessie lived in that house for 17 years alone after our father had passed away. During that period, Jessie met several wonderful friends and was not ready to move, let alone sell her house. As a family, we knew it was time for her to move due to health reasons. I contacted a few realtors in Oceanside figuring they knew the area and would sell the home quickly. After talking with them, I sensed they were only interested in getting the listing, not my mom.
On April 4th, I contacted John Moes, an agent with Windermere Real Estate in Encinitas. I explained the situation to John and asked what he could do for my family. I was so impressed with his compassion for Jessie and knowledge of the real estate market, that we signed a contract and listed the house with him. John work diligently, hosting several open houses and getting the word out to other realtors. Any problems that arose, John notified us immediately and took care of them quickly. John even spent his own money to spruce up the curb appeal, adding plants and flowers. The house sold in just 35 days on the market and we couldn`t be happier. John was also negotiated 99% of the full asking price. He made the process virtually stress free, and if you`ve ever sold a house, stress is a usual part of the equation for the seller.
My family and I would like to thank Mr. Moes for your dedication, hard work and for always putting your clients concerns first and foremost. I would recommend you to all my friends and family.
Steve and Wendy Grubbs, Seacrest Lane, Vista CA.
We feel very fortunate to have chosen John Moes to sell our home. In addition to being a delightful personality, he was very thorough with his research on our home and neighborhood and always on top of the details and deadlines associated with the transaction. His instinct for what would help our home sell, and his guidance in helping us stage our home really paid off. John extensively marketed our home and as very flexible with scheduling our Open Houses, always following up on every contact. But what mattered the most to us is that he got the price we needed and sold our home in the timeframe we requested.
Eric and Peggy Patton, San Esteban, Mission Viejo CA.
To whom it may concern: As trustee of my parent`s estate, I was responsible for a very complicated sale of a mobile home of which my parents had been one third owners. The situation was very complex and involved many family members, some of whom lived out of the area. John Moes, was recommended to me and I was very satisfied with John`s knowledge of real estate and his diligent hard work. John guided the trustees through a maze of paperwork, including using a power of attorney and forms dealing with trusts. When the home was listed, John found a great deal for us almost as soon as it was listed. The escrow was accomplished with only minor problems, for which John immediately found solutions. It was a real pleasure working with John. He worked as hard for the sale of our mobile home as he would have worked for a million-dollar home. A fact of which I and all involved in the deal are very grateful. If I ever have a need for a realtor in San Diego County, I definitely would recommend John Moes for your real estate needs!
RJ & Carolyn Kiddie, Sitio Bay, Carlsbad CA
We want to take this opportunity to thank you for the way in which you handled the sale of our home in Carlsbad. From the initial interview, through the closing of escrow, every aspect was handled with the utmost professionalism. Particularly, we would like to commend you for the regular updates regarding the number of realtors and real estate agents attending your caravan showings. It was also helpful to know the number of visitors to the frequent open houses you conducted and the feedback you received, both positive and negative, regarding our home, landscaping and paint scheme.
The feedback presentation gave us the high level of comfort to make proper pricing adjustments, counter offers and minor maintenance and repair decisions. Since we moved out of state and were not in the area, it was reassuring that you took it upon yourself to hire contractors and conduct business on our behalf. We wish you continued success in your career and we know from our experience that your future clients will also be happy with any purchase or sale in which you participate.
