Client Testimonials

Joske helped us purchase a condo in SF - he patiently stayed with us for over 1.5 years while we decided what we really wanted. His knowledge of the city is unmatched, and he went the extra mile for us - even picking up a birthday cake for our son on the day we flew into town from the east coast. You can't do any better than Joske!

Joske will save you money, time, and anxiety. Real estate in SF is stressful and tricky. I worked with Joske to buy a home in San Francisco. Joske stuck with me while we put in multiple bids and was always kind, patient, and incredibly responsive. Joske is an established deal maker in San Francisco real estate, which you’ll find out if you work with him because every other realtor in town knows him and will tell you what a great agent you have.

We worked with Joske on more than one transaction and he provided us with the perfect balance of patience, assertiveness, persistence and advice. Each transaction went smoothly and he was there with us every step of the way.  We have recommended him to others in the past and will continue to recommend him.  In addition, we will also work with him again if another transaction comes up.

Joske is a consummate real estate professional. He represented the seller on a condo we purchased and put up with our incessant questions calmly, let us into the apartment on short notice numerous times patiently, and all the while zealously protected the interests of his clients. Most importantly, he got the deal done!

I could not be happier with my choice of Joske Thompson. From the first conversation, he demonstrated a strong knowledge of the SF market, a vast network of connections among real estate agents, and a team that stood behind him attending to every detail of the process. The fact that he had a check list of items that his team utilizes was especially helpful and comforting to a detailed person like myself! And that check list enabled my sale to move along quickly, all while I was settling into a new home and new job 300 miles away. Within a week of my move, the condo was listed and ready for an open house. A week later I had multiple offers. Joske helped bring in a sale that was over my asking price and closed in 2 weeks! It was all handled seamlessly. I am grateful that the experience was so easy and appreciate the excellent work of Joske Thompson.

Joske helped us sell our family's home in Marin. It was understandably an emotional ordeal and Joske guided us and handled all the details impeccably. In addition, he helped us prepare the house for sale so beautifully that we definitely received a higher sale price. We would recommend Joske to  anyone hoping to work with a highly professional realtor with a great heart.

Joske is an outstanding professional and just a great person overall. He has deep expertise of the San Francisco market and has an excellent reputation in the industry, which helped a lot getting our offer on a house accepted. Seriously, everyone knows him and he knows everyone! He also super nice, completely honest and trustworthy, and very candid in what is and isn't possible. Also he is completely dedicated, even to the smaller clients like us who were "only" purchasing a tiny SF apartment! I send him all my friends, and if I ever sell my place I will go back to him in a heartbeat.

Fredrica Crowe

We were pleased to hear that the sale of our property closed today as scheduled. We want to thank you for the fabulous job you did on our behalf as our broker. It has been less than three months since the date we called you and asked you to list it for us. Since that time you arranged for the removal and storage of our furniture, the staging and painting of the condo, the sanding of the condo’s floors, the power washing of the building and the appropriate inspections. You handled the negotiations exceptionally well resulting in an agreement for a price significantly over the list price and we closed without any adjustments. Most importantly you made excellent recommendations every step of the way, all of which we accepted and you kept us in the loop throughout. You have been a pleasure to work with and you are a true professional. We could not be more pleased.

Marty & Sandy Coyle

Joske is simply and unequivocally The Best. I just bought a house in San Francisco long-distance from Brooklyn. I don't think the deal would or could have happened without Joske, especially given the current craziness of the San Francisco market. His deep knowledge of the market, as well as his consummate professionalism and savvy made it happen. Joske was brilliant in terms of negotiating strategy and was totally on top of all aspects of the transaction which moved very quickly on a tight timeline. Joske was very responsive, forthcoming, firm and thoughtful, with excellent judgment and instincts. Joske inspires confidence and is also, importantly, completely honest, trustworthy and reliable. Whether buyer or seller, new to the market or not, I would highly and enthusiastically recommend Joske as your broker, you won't find anyone better or more capable.

Recently I sold my Condo Unit 302, at 1350 California, in San Francisco through the services of your Company. I am please to report that your agent Joske Thompson has been of excellent help and very professional. Although I unexpectedly had to travel to France during the escrow period, he took care, on my behalf all the details and repairs to comply with the buyer's demand. He also made special arrangements enabling me to sign the closing deed at the American Consulate in Paris. I wanted you to know of my deep satisfaction and for you to be aware that the high level of prestige of your company has been once more kept up by Mr. Joske Thompson.

Martin Minaberry

I would like to express my warmest thanks for your efforts in helping me to find a home. Throughout the process, I felt you treated me with both a professional and caring approach. Your efficiency was remarkable, and your assistance with the big hurdles was invaluable. Not only did you educate me at every step of the way, but you also pushed me at critical junctures and you were patient when I needed extra time. I will certainly take what I learned from you, practical strategies and general philosophy, into any house purchase I make in the future. Even after I bought the house, I have been able to count on you as an excellent resource.

I've had the good fortune to work with realtor Joske Thompson on an estate sale of a three-unit building in San Francisco. His deep experience in selling urban investment properties proved to be exceptional. The property sold in less than two weeks at a significant amount over the asking price.  Joske’s stellar experience in handling the tenant issues and working through the maze of San Francisco’s ordinances afforded us the luxury of simply knowing that a professional was on our team. From the initial meeting to the closing day, Joske makes himself available to his clients around the clock. He's professional, he's smart and above all else - he's an outstanding communicator. There's no 'fluff' with Joske. He's straight-forward, direct and he's spot-on with his assessments and his evaluations. We are most fortunate to have Joske as our realtor and we look forward to doing business with him for years to come.

Joske represented me when I bought my home a number of years ago and he did an excellent job.  I love my home.  So when I decided to buy some investment properties, he was the first person I contacted.  Once again, Joske worked his magic and really helped me craft winning offers.  I was amazed at our success rate.  His knowledge of the area and expertise in his field are really impressive.  He really cares and gave me great advice during the process.  I would recommend Joske without hesitation to anyone needing real estate representation in San Francisco.

Victor Levashoff

Joske was referred to my girlfriend and I by a long-time family friend who works in real estate in Berkeley. She recommended Joske as her go-to agent for San Francisco as he has been in the business for over 25 years and knows the market better than anyone she knows. Joske was truly amazing and I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home in San Francisco, whether they are a first-time buyer, or an experienced investor.

Some of the things that made Joske stand out to me, having dealt with my share of real estate agents in the past, were his impeccable communication skills and patience throughout the buying process. Joske would always respond to our calls or emails immediately (even late on weekends), and never pushed us towards a decision we weren't comfortable with. Joske also patiently explained many things that were new to us such as earthquake retrofitting regulations and condominium HOA policies.

Joske showed us about 10 houses in total before we decided that the very first one we saw was the one we liked the best. As the listing agent had not yet set a date to hear offers, Joske carefully explained our options and walked us through what we could expect at each step. Less than 2 weeks later we closed on the house of our dreams. To this day I still reach out to Joske for recommendations on everything from general contractors to neighborhood restaurants.

I can't recommend Joske more highly and will absolutely use him again should we decide to move into a bigger home down the road.
