Sellers’ Testimonial

Our Hercules house was our home for the last 24 years. I witnessed our journey from a newly-engaged couple to a family with grown children. We have put a great deal of time and resources improving it to make it our dream home. Hence, when it was time to let it go, we looked for someone who can help us not only maximize our returns but also find a new owner who will take care of the house the same way we did. Jojo walked us through the process of selling our house. Our biggest concern about putting our house on the market is the amount of time and money that we need to spend to spruce it up like fresh coat of paint, refinish the floor, new doors, etc. To our pleasant surprise, Jojo’s recommendations were very minor. We really like how he made the house very appealing to buyers during the open house - Italian music on the background, smell of freshly cut lavenders around the house, sound of trickling water from the fountain and Jojo highlighting every feature of the house. We also like how Jojo presented the offers to us. The house RECEIVED 10 OFFERS. Jojo organized them in such a way that it will be very easy for us to evaluate which one is the best deal. One offer came from Jojo’s client. Although he will receive a higher commission should we choose his client, we never felt any endorsement from Jojo to choose his client’s offer. He expertly guided us to ensure that we choose the offer that would make the most sense to us. Our escrow closed $55K above asking, no contingencies, and just 21 days after we accepted the offer. It was very smooth. In the process of selling our Hercules house, we have found a TRUSTED ally in Jojo. He definitely has our back and is on the lookout for our best interest.

Staging the Villa

Virginia and Glenn have a lot of rustic wooden furniture and classic paintings which I love. Overall the interior has a warm interior color palette, and to balance it a bit, I incorporated a huge painting of a village fishing boat with a dominant blue tone (thanks Gi for letting me use your stunning classic canvas frame), pairing it with a few matching blue pillows. I also introduced my Narcissus painting reproduction by 17th Century Italian Baroque painter Caravaggio. It made it for the first time on a staged home - perfect for that wall adjacent to the staircase. The blue Hydrangeas complimented the yellow tones all around, & with a little bit of re-arranging and minimizing, we accomplished our intended look & feel to a Tuscan Villa. Playing Italian classics and ballads of master tenor singer Andrea Bocelli, the stage was set to attract the most qualified buyers who also appreciate a garden villa and much of the upgrades and renovations that Glenn & Virginia have done throughout the years. We received 10 offers. All our efforts paid off resulting in a multiple bidding. Glenn & Virginia, thank you for entrusting the sale and marketing of your property to my care. It was a joy working alongside you!

Jojo’s Statement

Sellers Glenn and Virginia called me to list their property that they've lived and raised their kids in. True pride of ownership is evident. The family has made quite a bit of improvement on this property. Lots of love and sweat went into the Tuscan garden personally designed by Virginia. The extended kitchen made so much sense - expanding the kitchen and formal dining room areas creating a more spacious living spaces. It was the most perfect layout renovation I’ve seen for this particular model. Installation of high end WOLF gas range and Sub-Zero refrigeration makes for a delightful chef’s culinary experience. I love the Master Bathroom’s luxurious upgrades with jetted-tub and automated skylights. The real hardwood flooring throughout makes for warm Tuscan feel. Overall, it was a joy working alongside Glenn & Virginia. The upgrades and many special delicate finishing touches you’ve added made it easy and enjoyable to stage market and sell this Tuscan Villa. It went by fast, and I can truly say we’ve become friends.
