"Mr. Pabst's knowledge of the community resulted in establishing a competitive rent level and adding finishing touches to the property which increased it's curb appeal and improved the interior attractiveness. His responsiveness to my need for a quick turnover of tenants and his process expertise resulted in minimum vacancy time, top rent, and a quality tenant that valued being in the property. This combination resulted in a tenant that always paid on time, had minimal maintenance and repair requests, and took excellent care of the property."
"It was great working with John! As first-time home buyers, we had a lot to learn. John not only understood that, but he showed us by giving us the room to ask the questions we needed to ask (no matter how basic), and explaining very clearly what details to pay attention to and why. He also gave valuable advice on how to save on renovations/repair."
"John has a truly unique toolbox for his clients. He had first hand knowledge as broker, seasoned real estate investor, and seasoned custom home builder -having built and sold many homes over $3M in San Diego. His areas of expertise make him a great broker. Additionally, he is not a "salesman" just trying to sell his clients - I can honestly say that he truly and genuinely looks out for his clients' best interests - something that is less and less common in the RE industry!"
"New to the area I found John on zillow showed me help my purchase. And best of all helped to locate local contractors to help me with repairs that needed to be made after purchase. Thanks. John for all your help. And quick responses for question my wife and I had about the process."
"While I was looking for a home, John was very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. I have very particular tastes in exactly what I wanted in a home and he only brought me listings that met those requirements and was very patient with all my requests and he never stopped smiling. He is a very happy, friendly, and competent professional."
"I would highly recommend John Pabst and his company to navigate the recent tumultuous waters of buying a home. We had some very specific criteria that had to be met for us to pull the trigger on a home purchase. John was patient and only showed us homes that met our criteria and never rushed our buying process nor tried to sell us anything. We applauded the candid approach and love the home we bought."
"John was a great real estate agent from the beginning to the end of the process. He helped my husband and I purchase our first home in California. We recently moved here from New Jersey and his expertise in the different areas as well as the process was impressive. Also, John was very professional through out the home buying process and offered advice that we trusted."
"John has been a godsend from day one! Working with him, we truly felt like he had our best interests in mind. From finding a home that met our requirements to advising us on fair market pricing and finally until closing, he has been an integral navigator for the entire process. Always prompt to answer questions and ready to give us live updates, I would recommend John to any and everyone looking to buy or sell their home."
"John Pabst expertly provided us with a large selection of homes to consider and visit during our search. This man is a true professional with the personable skills and knowledge who will also be selling our current home. We give him a five star rating and highly recommend his real estate services."
"I was absolutely impressed by John’s sheer responsiveness when in less than 24 hours I receive a call from him asking when I would like to see the home I was inquiring about on Zillow. His diligence and tireless efforts in finding the right home for us has successfully paid off. We are extremely happy with our new home. John not only works hard to find the right home for you he also listens. "
"John Pabst with Pabst Associates has been of tremendous help through our home purchasing experience. We had a million and one questions and didn’t know where to start or what area would be a great fit for us, yet after talking to us, John was able to help us find homes that fit our personal taste and budget. John was patient with us in our search with limited homes on the market and even looked at other resources to find us properties that weren’t readily available to anyone else. He was very supportive and instructive in making sure we got to the Closing Day with the least amount of hassle. I would certainly work with him again and recommend him."

"I have worked with John on several transactions and he did a awesome job on all of them. John and I worked on buying and selling homes and he was always very knowledgeable and responsive with every detail."
"John sold my house on Willow Way in Vista in 9/2005. He was very professional and patient with me. He walked me through the entire process , including when would be the optimal time to list my house. He guided me on details that would showcase my house to potential buyers from removing wallpaper, to painting, and replacing carpet. John was exceptional when it came to negotiating the final selling price of house! His expertise helped me obtain the funds I needed to purchase my second true home. I was so satisfied with outcome that I used John again to purchase that second home."
"John Pabst has been nothing short of 'exceptional' throughout our home buying experience. As out of state buyers looking for a new home in San Diego county, John guided and educated Karen and I through the 'process' of purchasing with seamless ease. He was remarkably patient and thorough. And most importantly to Karen and I was that the fact that he could always make us laugh! "
"John is knows what he's doing in all aspects. He will listen to you and get you what you want. He's very responsive. I'm 61 and a retired exec. He is the best real estate agent I've ever worked with!"
"John was so helpful with assisting my family with finding a property. He took the time to look at a variety of properties and provided guidance while understanding our preferences. We were able to close slightly under asking price and have since become happily settled in our new home."
"I have never purchased any property before and was connected to John through a family realtor. John agreed to meet with me and helped me to put together an offer. John was responsive and walked me through the entire process, and after the offer was accepted, he worked with me through the inspections, appraisals, and contingencies and all of the actions required to close. I am now the proud owner of my condo and John continues to answer my questions as I get settled in. I utilized John to purchase property but he was knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate and I would highly recommend John."
"John Pabst provided outstanding services, above and beyond my expectations or prior experience. I highly recommend John Pabst and he is my realtor of choice for any real estate needs. Send John an email or call, you will be pleasantly surprised what he can offer to assist you."
"John is more than a real estate agent - he is a good person. We have several properties in Southern California and I have dealt with many agents over the year. John stands up over all of them. He is knowledgeable, available on a very short notice and provides the right advice. I would recommend John Pabst for your real estate needs."
"As a first time home buyer I was a little nervous encountering agents the are too pushy. John was nothing but patient, informative, honest and understanding. Made my home buying experience a breeze and couldn't be happier with the place he helped me buy. Thank you!!"
"My husband and I just bought our first home and John was the driver behind it all. We had met several realtors prior to him who simply opened up the house and expected us to make an offer. John, on the other hand, showed us homes that matched what we were looking for, was extremely patient and responsive to all of our needs. When we finally found "the one", John worked so hard to make it happen. He used all of his knowledge and expertise in helping our dream happen. If and when we go through this again, he will definitely be the one we work with. "
"I am very satisfied buying a wonderful house in La Costa/Aviara area through Mr. John Pabst help. He is very sincere, nice and trust worthy person. He helped me a lot with his lender Mr. Steven Hyde to get our pre-approved loan and closing the escrow in 20 days. Both John and Steve did a wonderful and amazing job. We are very happy to work with them."
"We hired John with Pabst Associates to sell the place we called home for many years. It was somewhat of a daunting task as well as emotional too. John systematically explained what the home selling process looked like, showed us proprietary methods of how he and his team would position our home on the market to make it stand out, and gave us a timeline that we could count on to help us get ready to sell our home. We were very excited with the sale price we got from the sale of our home, the limited amount of time it took and how little hassle it was. I highly recommend John Pabst with Pabst Associates to sell your home or help you with all your real estate needs."
"John was a great help from start to finish in helping me find and purchase my new home. Being new to the area, I didn't quite know the neighborhoods around, but after talking to me, John was able to help me find homes that fit my personal taste and my budget. I would certainly work with him again and recommend him to family and friends."
"We recently moved to the San Diego area from Northern California and were so lucky to have had John as our agent. From the first day that I met with him, till the end of the whole process he made us feel safe knowing he was there to guide us through it all. John patiently listened to us, and at the same time shared his knowledge of the area while showing us as many homes as we wanted to look at. John goes beyond your expectations, I would recommend him to anybody looking to buy or sell a home in this area. Our moving experience has been a much better one because of John’s dedication to his job."
"John is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We were new to California and John helped us understand the differences in purchasing a home here versus our previous state. We had a very unique circumstance and John was instrumental in making the purchase happen. John goes out of his way to make sure his clients are taken care of and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home."
"I have used John for many real estate endeavors, from home sales to evaluations and recommend him highly. His skills range from not only real estate sales, but in mid to high end development and spec building."
"John made this daunting process easy; viewing properties, selecting, and then navigating the confusing realm of buying. I am pleased that John was available to help us buy our new home. The experience far exceeded my expectations."
"We were lucky to be paired up with John through Zillow while searching for our first home. He was friendly, knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with from start to finish. His background in home building was great because he could tell you what could and couldn't be done (construction wise) to a property and estimate how much it would cost on the spot. He also was great at negotiating and getting us the price we wanted. I would highly recommend John to anyone whether they are buying or selling a property. I'll definitely be using his services again in the future."
"We've been working with John for nearly 2 years and the best way to describe John is patient and responsive. He is the kind of real estate agent that is not only knowledgeable but is very patient with his clients and will show you properties that match your profile until you are 100% satisfied. The other fact that people need to know about John is that he has a wealth of business experience and has a deep understanding of construction and building code. He has an eye for looking at a property and giving you straight answers as to how much work needs to be done and the cost involved. He also has a great network of professionals from contractors to finance people. He is a true entrepreneur at heart and we will definitely work with him again."

FAQ’s (Questions Agents Hate)
It’s critical that you make the right decision about who will handle what is probably the single largest financial investment you will ever make.
Not all real estate agents are the same. If you decide to seek the help of an agent when selling or buying your home, you need better than good information before you make any moves.
An agent can cost or save you thousands of dollars.
Picking an agent is one of those critical issues that can cost or save you thousands of dollars. There are very specific questions you should be asking to ensure that you get the best representation for your needs. Some agents may prefer that you don’t ask these questions, since the knowledge you’ll gain from their honest answers will give you a very good idea about what outcome you can expect from using them as an agent. And let’s face it – in real estate, as in life – not all things are created equal. Hiring a real estate agent is just like any hiring process – with you on the boss’s side of the desk. It’s critical that you make the right decision about who will handle what since this is probably the single largest financial investment you will ever make.
What makes you different? Why should I list my home with you?
It’s a much tougher real estate market than it was a decade ago. What unique marketing plans and programs does this agent have in place to make sure that your home stands out favorably versus other competing homes? What things does this agent offer you that others don’t help you sell your home in the least amount of time with the least amount of hassle and for the most amount of money? Get Free Report
On average, when your listings sell, how close is the selling price to the asking price?
This information is available from the Real Estate Board. Is this agent’s performance higher or lower than the board average? Their performance on this measurement will help you predict how high a price you will get for the sale of your home. Get Free Report
How many Buyers are you currently working with?
Obviously, the more buyers your agent is working with, the better your chances are of selling your home quickly. It will also impact price because an agent with many buyers can set up an auction-like atmosphere where many buyers bid on your home at the same time. Ask them to describe the system they have for attracting buyers. Get Free Report
What happens if I’m not happy with the job you are doing to get my home sold?
Can I cancel my listing contract? Be wary of agents that lock you into a lengthy listing contract where they can get out of (by ceasing to effectively market your home) but you can’t. There are usually penalties and broker protection periods which safeguard the agent’s interests, but not yours. How confident is your agent in the service s/he will provide you? Will s/he allow you to cancel your contract without penalty if you’re not satisfied with the service provided? Get Free Report
