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.

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 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.

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!!

I would highly recommend John Pabst and his team to anyone. He was very patient and guided us through the process successfully. We are very happy with our home.

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.

Nicole Andrade 5 Stars

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.

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.

John helped us buy our high end home in San Diego and provided excellent service and advice. He is very resourceful and creative when dealing with complex transactions and is cool under pressure. He helped my wife and me deal with the emotions of buying a home and kept us grounded in the reality of the large financial transaction that was taking place. I would not hesitate to work with him again.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 has been an absolute delight to work with. His experience in the market but also his background as a builder makes him a perfect consultant and supporter for your house search. He has been able to quickly check out what we really want and then followed up with many houses we've liked, finally leading to a great purchase. I strongly recommend John as agent and real estate professional.

It is hard to express how thankful I am to John, in guiding us through the entire process of buying our new home end-to-end. He carefully made all efforts to understand, act and represent our interests and desires from the start. His genuine concern for us buying the home that was right for us is something I have not experienced before in ANY kind of transaction (Real Estate or otherwise). Honest, transparent, fun, a great person and a shrewd professional in his trade, with whom I would do business again without hesitation; this is John Pabst.

sofirin 5 Stars

We loved finding our new place with John. For the last 8 months, we have been looking at places and haven't had any good experience with realtors. All they did was unlocking the door and then pushing to submit an offer that was equal or higher than asking price so they can close and get their commission. Long story short, if you want a realtor that doesn't push or hurry you, provides far more services than just unlocking a door then you simply go with John.

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 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 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!

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.

Melissa Lacey 5 Stars

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.

tonywave 5 Stars

John was a valuable partner in our home purchase. He has a wonderful personality and made the purchase process fun while ensuring both our home preferences as well financial interests were satisfied. He is by far the most knowledgeable realtor I have worked with in buying a home. He was always available, patient, and had a great sense of humor.

Jonathan Andrade 5 Stars

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.

We did not know John before calling him through Zillow. He was easy going, but knowledgeable, never pushy. We never felt like he was talking up a property to make a sale, in fact, he pointed out little features that could be red flags. After the offer process, he made sure the parties moved along as promised, so that the time frames were honored. Additionally, he gave us a great recommendation for remodeling help after escrow closed. He was an important find for us. John Pabst is a first class realtor!

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.

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.

I consulted with John concerning the potential acquisition of income producing property in San Diego and the surrounding area. John was professional, polite and a joy to consult with. John's knowledge was extensive and the information he provided me was invaluable. He was able to guide me regarding concerns and considerations other brokers didn't even discuss with me.

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.

Travis Matthews 5 Stars

I recommend John Pabst and associates anytime. He doesn’t only count with construction experience on how homes can be flipped but he also provides high professional skills. He is absolutely knowledgeable about the area more than any other agent I have met. He is very flexible and accommodating to buyers with difficult work schedules like myself. And most importantly he has a great taste in home options for the buyer. Another highlight to mention, he has excellent negotiation strategies. You want him to represent you.

He’s a good guy, which consequently makes him easy to work with. It almost goes without saying that he was promptly responsive, detail orientated, and able to clearly articulate the intricacies of buying our first home. I would recommend him to anyone.

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 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!

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.

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.
