"It is refreshing to know that professionalism still exists. Home selling can be incredibly stressful. Thank you Jon Strauss for making my experience as stress free as possible. Your stager, photographer and the video for my listing were amazing! All of this preparation helped to quickly sell my home with multiple offers. I appreciate your patience, guidance and communication throughout the entire process and will definitely be referring you to all my family and friends in the future. I could not be more pleased with how you handled everything!"

"Without a prior relationship or referral, choosing a realtor is kind of like picking out a bottle of wine...the price looks good and I like the label design. We had been collecting postcards, door hangers, flyers, and names of realtors in the area for a few months before when we decided to list our home. On the top of this stack was Jon's postcard that advertised, "Would you sell for the right price?" Well, yes...yes I would. But if you've ever sold or purchased a home before, you know it's not all about price. It's about the relationship. My husband gave Jon a call and met with him the same day. The process of buying & selling a home can be stressful, so having a realtor you can relate to, trust, and rely on is key. Jon struck a chord with each item on our list for a realtor and the process began. This was the third home we've sold and honestly, the most profitable, fastest, and smoothest transaction yet. Jon went above and beyond with his responsiveness, willingness to help with inspectors and contractors when we were working or out of town, and unique strategies for attracting buyers. We listed the Thursday before Easter and had an Open House that Saturday. He set up an EZ Up tent, had coffee, cookies, cupcakes, and eggs for the kids. He made sure the Open House was available earlier than advertised so neighbors could walk through and even Facebook lived the beginning of the event. We received multiple offers within days of listing and Jon guided us through each one, offering comprehensive pros and cons from a non-biased perspective. We settled on one and the process flowed perfectly from then on. I would highly recommend Jon Strauss to anyone looking for a smooth home buying or selling process!! With such an important decision, you want someone you can trust every step of the way. We'll surely be using Jon again for our next move!"

"We recently sold our home and hired Jon to be our agent. He exceeded all expectations and got the job done ahead of schedule. He was very professional, knowledgeable and communicated well with us throughout the process and kept us updated so there were no surprises. With his local expert knowledge and experience he was able to guide us through the process and answer all of our questions along the way. He hired a fantastic stager and photographer which helped us get top dollar. He fought hard for us when it came to the offers and repairs. His negotiation skills were top notch and his strategies worked. He is hands down the best realtor I have had the privilege to work with and I would recommend him to all my family, friends, and neighbors."

"Jon was extremely competent in shepherding us through a sometimes complex process involving the sale of our property as part of a corporate relocation. We chose Jon because he offered us the complete package-- a sophisticated, tech savvy marketing plan in addition to deep knowledge of the local real estate market. He went above and beyond our expectations at every step of the way. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell in OC."
"Jon was able to find a buyer and close the deal. Always optimistic, very knowledgeable, easy to communicate with and always available - he followed up on every step. I always felt that Jon is on my side and ready to fight for the best deal. Lots of help from him when I was away and the property needed maintenance or repairs. I wouldn't hesitate to contact Jon again if the need arises."
"Jon was very helpful and knows our former neighborhood. We hired him because he lives in the neighborhood, and could assist my wife who had just had knee surgery, while I began work in another state. He has a stable of handymen who fix what is necessary, and he keeps in constant communication."
"Jon helped us sell my father's home after he passed away, and he could not have made the process any easier! He was able to sell any older home, in mediocre condition, on the second showing! Extremely professional and communicative, we never had any doubts about where we were in the process. If there is ever a need in the future, he will be my first call! My realtor for life!"

"John was great! His patience and persistence to find us the right home was tremendous. I couldn't think of anyone who I would recommend more for his approach and knowledge. If you are thinking about trying to find the right place and want someone to guide you through the process, then John's the choice to make!"
- Dakota B.
"I'm not a big fan of Realtors. Like lawyers, they are a necessary evil, but Jon did an excellent job. He was prompt and professional and helpful keeping our lender on schedule and negotiating the best price. We told him that we had a pretty good idea what we wanted and he followed our lead."
- Joe N.
"I recently used Jon to sell my condo and buy my new home. For the selling process Jon hired a professional stager to come and give me tips on how to sell my home faster. After those changes were complete, he also hired a great photographer. Jon priced the condo and got it on the market. He had an excellent marketing campaign for the open house and was able to sell our house in 5 days! For the buying process, we had multiple areas we were looking in and Jon would take us to see places all over. We found something we like and he helped us put in a great offer. Even being contingent, his tips helped us get the home. Jon is not only knowledgeable in real estate agent but also very knowledgeable on the loan process. He was able to speak both languages, answer my questions, and make it so we closed on time. When we got our keys, Jon even helped my husband with moving some of our heavy items! I have used Jon for buying 3 houses and selling 2. I am always impressed and recommend him to everyone!"

"Jon went above and beyond for me as my realtor. He worked very hard negotiating my offer and made it happen for me as a first time buyer! He also went to great lengths to solve issues that came up along the way and took away many of my worries by checking in with me often. I felt Jon treated me like family and made buying my first home a great experience!"
"I used Jon to sell my rental property. He was amazing! He made what I thought would be a difficult process so easy! Because my property was a rental and located quite a ways from where I live I couldn't be involved in every aspect myself, and Jon was able to deal with every detail for me which gave me great peace of mind. I could not have done this without him. I would highly recommend to ALL my friends and family!!"

"Jon Strauss is an honest, diligent and no pressure realtor. He is familiar with our area, and I was most intrigued with the fact that he grew up in the local area and attended the local schools from elementary through high school. Jon had a buyer interested in a home in our neighborhood. Jon apparently went door to door to find a potential seller....and it ended up being us. We are very happy with the sale of our home by Jon Strauss."

"Jon is an excellent realtor. He really knows how to get the job done. He was caring and listened to our needs, making us feel as though we were his top clients even when I'm sure he was serving many others simultaneously. We were in a rush to find a place, and within one month Jon helped us secure a perfect home to fit all of our needs. He was accommodating with our busy schedules throughout the entire process, too, making time to show us places in the late evening and on the weekends. Super responsive, thoughtful, and knows Orange County real estate very well. Thank you, Jon!"
