Great working with Joraine! Very professional and asked all our first time buyer questions. She went above and beyond her duties. Would highly recommend her!

Joraine and Marc made our home ownership dreams come true! They were so attentive and helpful during the process. I really appreciated that they were really on top of everything, ensuring to keep us in the loop and providing quick responses to our questions. Thank you!!

My family and I would like to give a big thank you to Joraine, Marc, and the rest of the Costales team! From beginning to end, you were right there answering any questions. I never write reviews but this is a special case. We’re very shocked in the happiest way possible, that you have made selling our house stress free! Our timeline was on point!

Anybody looking for a realtor, contact Joraine Costales. The Costales team are simply the best! Thank you, I now have a realtor for life!

I want to thank you for all your work and patience with us. If any of my friends decide to move I will recommend you and let them know how friendly and hard working you are. Glad we are finally done with that faze of our life.

Thank you again.

Joraine and her family are amazing! When looking for a realtor you definitely want someone that makes the process easy and understandable. When I bought my first place I went with a realtor who didn't put in the work to help me or explain the process to me. Complete opposite with my experience with Joraine. Her and Marc are always dedicated to their work and it shows with their results. My husband and me sold our first condo (for top dollar) and purchased our "forever home" (even with the contingency of the sell of our condo) and it's all thanks for the Costales team!!! We never felt confused or questioned the steps they were making. We are so thankful for them and the work they put in. They definitely treat you like their focus is on YOU, even though their lives are busy and they have other clients. When choosing a realtor why not choose one of the best??? And if you want top dollar when you sell and best outcome when purchasing there's no question... go with the Costales team!

Joraine and Marc are the best team! As a first time homebuyer, I found them to be very honest, professional, and truly caring and putting their clients needs first. The whole home buying experience can be stressful but it went smoothly. They truly went above and beyond our expectations. I also appreciative how responsive they were via text, email, phone calls etc. I highly recommend Joraine and Marc for all your real estate needs.

I wasn't gonna yelp until after we got into our new house but really I just couldn't wait to rave about my cousin and her team. The Flores/Costales team was amazing. Let me go back just a little and say that I've know Joraine since she was 15 and I've had the pleasure of watching her grow from an immature little teen working at the children's place into the real estate mogul you have before now. Even when we weren't ready to sell or buy just quite yet, Joraine and her team answered our what if's and was very supportive. When we finally decided to go for it, her presentation blew me and my husband away including her backstory of how she got so good at it. Wowwed and awed by it all, we went for it. It took a little while especially after my father in law passed away, she was there every step of the way with Marc who came by just to fix our crooked sign outside, Jomar who watched the kids including our son, JT while Joraine and Marc showed us a cpl of houses, Mason and Gianna who were cute as hell while the open houses were going on, and assistant, Amanda who was here when the Flores/Costales family couldn't and sent us every document we needed to sign making sure we crossed our t's and dotted our i's. If you are looking for a go getter and a realtor, team Flores/Costales is it. Trust me. You won't go wrong with them.

Joraine and Marc are amazing. #TheCostalesTeam #WhoYouWorkWithMatters is their hashtag. They're such an awesome team. It is true it matters who you work with. I called Joraine a year ago just to ask how to go about selling our condo. We bought the condo from my parents a year before. Joraine adviced me to wait another year to sell it. I waited and once we hit 2 years I called her back. She went to my house within a couple of days to let me and my husband what to expect. Once we put our condo in the market in less than two weeks it was sold. Joraine was able to get more for our condo. My husband and I were so happy because now we have money to put down for our first house. We told Joraine what house we liked she went to see it and we made an offer. Even though there was multiple offers she was able to get ours. We were basically competing offers with cash. She's that GOOD. She even got the seller to repair section 1 and 2 items. Seller also gave us a closing credit. If you are looking for someone that will walk you through the process and it doesn't matter what time it is Joraine and Marc will be there. Any questions from how to go about selling or buying a home to how to increase the value of your house. #TheCostalesTeam will be there for. Plus their opens house are awesome they serve food not just cheese and cracker they had garlic shrimp on my open house. They do tacos too

I am an escrow officer with Fidelity National Title in Burlingame and I love working with Joraine. She is an agent that is very well organized and very involved in her transactions. She truly cares about her clients and takes the time to be with them every step of the way. She is always willing to go the extra mile.

Joraine Costales and her husband, Marc were truly awesome! From the moment we signed up for them to list and sell our home up to closing and signing at the Title Company was a pleasurable experience. Every detail, every question, every concern during the entire process were quickly answered and addressed in a very timely manner, and I must say beyond the “call of duty”. This is the best real estate transaction that my family and I have ever experienced (we have done 4 buy/sell/buy/sell). Our open house was held in the last 2 days of the year, New year’s Eve weekend and lol and behold, there were over 200 visitors! I don’t know how she did it but is simply amazing!

We are so happy and we highly recommend Joraine Costales and her team! If you are looking to buy or sell a property - do not hesitate to contact Joraine - from her initial engagement to completion you will experience professionalism, transparency and most importantly, peace of mind that I think we all look for! Kudos to the Costales Team.

Really love working with Joraine and Marc! The Costales team keeps it real and keeps it simple! They were able to explain everything from the contracts to the process without ever losing me. No confusing terminology, no confusing sales pitch. They just get it done! Would have no problem with them looking over my house and would suggest with 100% confidence!
