Read below to see what my clients have to say about our services!

Paula Johnsen Worked hard, late into the night, for me & she will do the same for her other Clients. Paula
LISTENS to her clents needs and desires. We patiently waited until the perfect house came back on the
market. She called at 11:00 PM and said, At first light tomorrow go to this address and check out the
property. Sure enough it had everything on my wish list (Paula suggested I write one so I would not miss
anything we desired). We knew we would return to Paula when we were ready to sale, eight yrs later. You
have a Precious Gem in Paula Johnsen. Keep her. I have referred several people to Paula Johnsen and will
continue to do so.
-Lorianne Fulks, Stockton California

We went with Pj because she is an expert at what she does. We had 100% confidence that Pj would get our
house sold and quickly.

Pj makes you feel like a close friend, not just a client.

It was a very easy process with Pj!
-Cortez Family, Ione Ca

We recently sold our rental home in California, after we moved out of state. Paula Johnsen (PJ) is absolutely
the most professional and knowledgeable broker in the area. Her expertise, patience and persistence in
getting our home sold was above and beyond expectations. She was always available, consistently kept us
up to date and was in touch with not only us, but the buyers and the tenant. If you EVER are considering
selling your home or buying one in the area we would highly recommend her as the number one person to
contact. Thank you PJ for an amazing job well done!

-Mike and Kathy Collins

We loved PJ we will refer family and friends to her

Pj did an excellent job even when on vacation. She deserves to go on vacation again without her cell phone. She really worked hard for us but more than that she CARED for US and what was happening to OUR well
being. We got lucky to find PJ.

Very professional caring understanding. The very best

We would use PJ no matter where she works. It's PJ not the company she works for!

-Jane Thaler Valley Springs Ca

PJ was so easy to work with on the sale of our first home and currently she is working on the sale of our second home. She exceeded our expectations and we are so happy with the outcome! She responds quickly to calls/emails/texts and always has a positive attitude. She's super friendly and by far the best real estate
agent we have ever worked with! We will definitely recommend her to our family and friends in the future!
-The Dodson's Family

PJ is easy to communicate with and has a sense of humor and
was always ready to calm the nerves when needed. PJ was
even there "just to talk" when all new news was delivered. The
sale of the house went quickly and easily which I hear is
unheard of but we're happy sellers nonetheless. We can not
thank PJ enough for the hard work and efforts on her end to get
our family relocated.
-Taylor Family

Paula was amazing. She always answered our questions right away. She is very easy to work with. Paula is very knowledgeable.
-Rochele & Scott Thurman Ione Ca

Paula was a pleasure to work with. She always put us first.
-Ed and Theresa Ione Ca

It was a pleasure to work with Paula. She was tenacious when negotiating difficult terms. She always put our
interests first

My husband and I had known Paula Johnsen for about twelve years before we decided to sell our home. We have known PJ to always be helping in the community be it selling fireworks at the Ione Business Association stand or supporting her neighbors in their time of need. She has been someone I’ve admired for her friendliness, helpfulness, and knowledge of the real estate market. So when it came time to part with our home, we didn’t hesitate to call PJ.

You seem to hear stories about real estate agents whom don’t give you their time and effort to successfully get through the selling process. My husband and I never doubted that PJ was always giving 100% to selling our home. I could call, text, or email PJ with questions or concerns, and I was sure to hear back from her that day or the next. She made us a priority even though she was and still is juggling many commitments in her life as a wife, mother, friend, community volunteer, and realtor.

If you are looking for a realtor who truly cares about you and your real estate needs, PJ Johnsen is the realtor for you. We can’t thank her enough for everything she did to sell our home.

I am a 41 year old single father of three with two children living with me full time. I am a first time
home buyer and have spent the last four years getting back on "my Feet". I believe none of which
would have been possible if it were not for Paula Johnsen my Realtor. I approached Paula about buying
a home without knowledge of where or how to begin this process or if I was even eligible to purchase a
home. I have had some hurdles and hiccups along the way and understand this can be normal, but it
seems my experience was a little beyond normal. Paula is outstanding, courteous, respectful, ethical
and very professional. I am very grateful for having her as my agent she helped make my experience
wonderful and had it not been for her would have probably turned a little bitter towards the Real Estate
world. I needed someone to hold people accountable and honest and Paula did just that. I don't
believe I would have been in my new home if it were not for Paula and her professionalism I was quite
the pest and bugged her a lot and she would just calm me down and do what she does best.. I know
that Paula goes above and beyond for her clients and I will use her again in the future and she is highly
recommended. I am very blessed to have had Paula in my life.

I met PJ through a friend and at the time was working with another agent, which I was not happy with. My home buying price range contained a lot of short sales and foreclosures, and my agent did not seem to have a clue as to how to handle them. My friend told me PJ was a short sale expert, and got us in touch. From the moment I first talked with her on the phone, I knew she meant business! She explained step by step what had happened with my transaction, and told me how it should have happened. Needless to say when it fell through (as PJ predicted), I dumped my agent and went with PJ. Because PJ lives in Amador County, and I live in Santa Clara County, she networked me with an agent in my area, while PJ was doing her short sale magic in the background. I did get a short sale transaction accepted shortly after working with her, but ended up getting a regular sale home only a couple of months after working with them. I would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing a home, especially if it is a short sale. My parents live in the same county as PJ, and they know people who used PJ as an agent before I met her, and we have all heard nothing but fabulous things about her. I would not have gotten my home, had I not been introduced to PJ.

-Christy Chalfant - Buyer San Jose

PJ Johnsen is absolutely fabulous!

Relocating is never fun, but with PJ as our selling agent it became much less stressful. We relocated from Stockton to the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas. Everyone thinks their home is special and it needs the right person to ensure potential buyers will see what a gem your home really is. We interviewed three agents and chose PJ because she really did her homework. Our home was as energy efficient as they came and even had solar panels that generated electricity. PJ had done her research to show what the actual value of the house was given there were no comparables. She told us her plan to market and show the house and everything she told us happened. All good! Based on her hard work we had multiple offers above the asking price within the first five days. PJ exceeded our expectations in what we needed for a long distance agent. When there were issues, a popped sprinkler head, PJ handled it. I would recommend PJ as an agent to anyone having to go through the relocation process.

There is no other realtor like PJ! She is a fast paced, always busy, always learning realtor! Professionalism is the best trait I can give her. But as successful as she is, she always has time to give and help others around her. PJ is a team player and a short sale queen

PJ helped us purchases our house after another relator failed numerous times to even get us in to see the house layout.

She took charge and helped us finish the deal.

PJ is dedicated and hardworking. I'd recommend her to anyone.

What a local resident sent me and I would like to share with you:
I have always heard what a phenomenal realtor you are! I saw your post about getting discouraged by the real estate market. Every industry has it's tough times, and what I have heard about you is that you have always cared about other people and that will always ...prevail longterm!. Keep up the great work.
