Calling from Arizona

"We had other agents that we had been disappointed with. Then we called All Cities Realty hoping that they could help us locate a beach retreat somewhere around the Newport/Laguna coast. We spoke with Joe Miner, the broker. We did some emailing and eventually we came to Laguna. He met us at our hotel room and came with every listing that was available and that met our particular home-buying desires. We all worked together and used a logical process to see all the areas and eliminate the homes and areas that were less interesting to us.

I believe Joe went to extraordinary lengths and has developed a really neat and easy process for screening through listings. He was prompt, made the house hunting easy both at the listing and touring levels. When we found the house we wanted he advised us every step of the way on the negotiation process. He assisted us with getting the best mortgage rates and terms. He helped with the inspection process, the nuances of the CA market and eased our fears of buying out of state and not being personally there. He really acted as our representative and found us consultants for both the geological and home inspections. He went to city offices and looked up the home's records. Following the termite inspection he oversaw the repair process and worked well with the listing agent to make sure everything was completed. In addition he went above and beyond the call of duty with furnishings delivery and even picked us up at the airport. Day or night he was always available to assist us and really made the home buying process not only painless but pleasurable and much less stressful than other experiences we have had. He also clearly had an excellent understanding of the market, market trends and pricing.

We found a home that suited us both and bought it! We are both elated! We must have seen 70 homes before we found the right home for us. The process was relatively swift, painless and Joe took care of everything and I can't believe we got it all for free!

Clearly, there is only one agency we would consider using in Orange County and that is All Cities Realty!"

Hello from Indiana

"As a female executive I was offered a corporate relocation package I was directed to a particular real estate firm and assigned an agent. It didn't take long before I knew that this situation was just not going to work for me. Being well prepared I had contacted All Cities Realty via the internet and corresponded with Joe Miner, the broker. After I decided the assigned agent was not for me I met with Joe Miner and in a short time we were out looking for homes. It took a solid week and we saw a lot of homes. I barely beat out another offer and purchased what I feel was the best of the close to 100 homes we saw. It all went as smooth as could be expected and Joe even negotiated a few repairs that we had not expected."

We are moving from Sweden

"Finding a competent Orange County real estate agent while in Sweden is no easy task. My husband Tom was being transferred to Orange County from Stockholm. I had contacted several agents via the internet and decided to choose Joe Miner of All Cities Realty. Via the net I gave him my wish list and he sent me listings by email in a spreadsheet format. I would advise him of the properties that appealed to me and he would provide me with the details of the homes. We selected about 30 homes to see and arrived in Orange County on a Thursday evening. After viewing homes from Huntington Harbor to San Clemente (a 30 mile distance) we chose the best home for us. By late Saturday night we had an accepted offer and were off to Stockholm. Mr. Miner and his associates handled the financing and the paperwork to and from Europe. Although we had some last minute problems with the home Mr. Miner was right on top of things and everything was taken care of at the cost to the seller!"

Help me find a beach home

"I knew it was time for me to purchase a home. I am a single woman in the medical field and was tired of renting. My last home in the east devalued and I was very skeptical of another purchase. Mr. Miner assured me that buying a home at this time would not be in vain and urged me that now was time. He helped me find the right place and in just a few short months it has already gone up in value. I could not be happier with my purchase!"

I'm looking for a 1031 Starker exchange replacement property

"I found All Cities Realty on the Internet. I was looking to purchase a solid real estate investment and income stream in the Beverly Hills / West Hollywood area. I had 45 days to find a replacement property for my 1031 Starker exchange. I am an attorney in Beverly Hills and wanted to deal with an agent that had my best interest in mind and was also diligent in finding a replacement property quickly. I contacted Joe Miner via the Internet. He came to my home in Beverly Hills and we began searching for an appropriate investment. Joe helped me locate a 15 unit multi-family complex in West Hollywood. He assured me that it was a solid purchase and to date everything could not be better! I believe the property has appreciated 200k and have had very little vacancy."

Do you think it's time to buy

"I wasn't sure if we were ready to purchase a home. I contacted All Cities Realty via email and asked for assistance. Joe Miner, the broker, responded and discussed our particular situation. We decided to start looking at homes. Because of Joe's computer expertise we were able to narrow our selection and find the best home for us - and it even came with a pool!"

Calling from Juneau - Will you take a look at a property for me

"Living in Alaska and having recently sold our second home in Hawaii, we decided to take a swing through Arizona and Southern California to find a winter retreat. We found the Palm Springs area to our liking and started looking for a home. We searched the classifieds and found one we liked. We contacted the broker and he showed us the property. We made an offer just under the asking price and it was accepted. We went home to Alaska to await closing.

Since we were very new to the Palm Springs area we thought it would be prudent to get a professional opinion of the property. We searched the internet and found All Cities Realty. We contacted them and talked to the broker Mr. Joe Miner. Mr. Miner indicated that he was not only a Real Estate Broker but also a state licensed & certified real estate appraiser with much experience in the Orange County and Palm Springs Area. We hired All Cities Realty to go and look at the property and boy are we glad we did. Mr. Miner saved us from making an expensive mistake.

Mr. Miner's report on the property pointed out several important facts that the previous broker did not just fail to disclose -- he actually lied to us outright. The property turned out to be in a EXTREMELY WINDY area, it was almost upon the San Andreas Fault, and had no less than sixteen easements on it! Armed with these facts, we were able to back out of the deal.

We found Mr. Miner professional and sincere so we took advantage of his skills. We had him show us the available properties in the Palm Springs Valley. Mr. Miner proved to indeed know the area and be quite knowledgeable about the listings he showed us. Mr. Miner was with us for about two entire weeks touring the entire area and showing us properties.

We found one in Palm Springs that was just what we were looking for and through Mr. Miner we made an offer to the Bank (it turned out that he had located a reposession at a great price). Mr. Miner helped us craft our offer and with his help we got a great buy. We have since purchased an investment property through Mr. Miner and he is now our real estate broker of choice. We would recommend All Cities Realty and Mr. Joe Miner to anyone. Sincerely Don & Kerry Madsen"

I'm in a wheelchair can you help me find the right home

"It's tough being in a chair. It's even tougher dealing with real estate agents who show you show you homes with stairs! I went through several agents while looking for a second home in the Palm Springs area. Then I found Joe Miner through a friend. We developed a friendship and I let Joe drive my wheelchair van. He showed me the different areas of the Palm Springs Valley and we started looking at homes. Probably looked at more than 30 homes. Joe took me by a home that had not been completed. I told him I did not even want to go in. He went in -- came out and said "this is the home for you". He told me I must see the home. My assistant Helga and I went in to inspect the home. He was right! I was everything I needed -- it was even on the golf course for the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic!. The builder assisted with the modification of the wheel-in bathroom. The place is perfect for me and I could not be happier here!"
