seller & buyer
Joan Dooley is truly the best realtor I have ever used. I have sold and bought 5 houses, and dealt with as many realtorsm, some inexperienced, some high pressure aggressive types, some never available or involved minimally. She has always been available and extraordinarily efficient in getting things done that were needed or promised, as well as accurate at anticipating the next step in the process (or the next step in the mind of the seller (i.e. mine). She has been able to find out reliable answers to questions about house construction, inspections, standards, which were very important for the property we were considering (and eventually bought).
She has always been patient with my repetitive and sometimes hesitant (or silly?) questions, without ever being patronizing.
She has made herself very available to drop almost everything and go do something for or with us related to the property, with a smile, and an occasional iced tea.
Her knowledge of the unique aspects of the community and life and geography in the Ukiah Valley astounds me. She can recommend the right person for the job that needs to be done.
When I ask her advice, it always rings true, sounds realistic and balanced. She can bring the right amount of enthusiasm and positive good will without exerting any pressure on us as buyers.
I would definitely call on Joan again for her help (and I intend to very soon, as I sell a house).
