We worked with Joy Bender to stage one of their listings for sale. The experience of working with Joy is refreshing. Joy and her team are committed to very high standards of professionalism for their clients. As part of the real estate industry having worked with many buyers, sellers, real estate agents, I was impressed to see their unique marketing and action plan to help sell their listed homes. One of their many tactics I personally experienced was a very successful and well planned open house party with the ingredients of reach, quality and appeal for the buyers built in. Great marketing, food truck, neighborhood out reach, personal attention to detail all came together in a single initiative. As part of the open house I could see potential buyers walk-in impressed. The Aumann Bender team are definitely among some of the finest in the San Diego real estate industry.

I am very happy to provide a review for Joy and Rob. I contacted them through zillow seeking a condo for my daughter. We emailed and texted extensively prior to meeting the first time. They were very knowledgeable about both the Del Mar and Rancho Santa Fe condo market touring us through the Covenant of Rancho Santa Fe and the Del Mar Village. I recommend them for anyone who demands responsiveness and expertise in San Diego
James Williams
Joy was a wonderful Realestate agent. She was very knowledgable about the area. She knew what our price range was and was able to show us 9 places in that price range in a very short period of time, which was nice because we were on vacation. She seemed very honest in telling us what she thought about each condo based on her knowledge of the surrounding neighborhood and by what we were looking for in a condo. She was very helpful through the whole escrow process as well. I would highly recommend her. We have already recommended her to our friends.

We relocated from Michigan with very little time to do a home search. We were unfamiliar with the San Diego area and California in general. Joy did a great job seeking to understand what our home and space preferences were, our budget, and desired proximity to work and schools. Joy is very efficient and made good use of the time we had available to preview properties. She knew we didn't have a lot of time to spend searching the web and provided numerous options for us to review. She was able to provide information on schools, neighborhoods, hidden costs, tax information etc. We felt she was straight up with us on what to expect in our price range and she exhibited professionalism and integrity. Joy and Rob made closing very easy for us long distance and help us to organize inspections etc. We were relocated and in our new Poway home in just over 6 weeks. Joy and Rob have remained in touch with us and have been as much friends as business associates. Joy and Rob helped to make a very stressful situation (relocating your family 3000 miles away) a positive one. Service beyond the sale - we still get in touch with Joy and Rob for recommendations about contractors, great places to eat, what is happening with the housing market as well as how much to invest in our home based on property valuations. We highly recommend their services.
Cay Kutler
Joy Bender is the most experienced and knowledgable Real Estate agent I ever worked with to purchase a home. She knows the La Jolla market and surrounding areas better then any other agent we tried working with on our purchase in June 2015. I would recommend Joy Bender to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in San Diego
Natalie and Chris G
Joy and Rob found our perfect first home in one weekend, Joy was so aggressive she was able to get us the home we wanted, when the seller wasn't even willing to look at offers until one week into the listing to attract multiple offers. After our lenders appraisal came in, Joy was able to get us a $10k price reduction. Being first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and needed extra help, and they were there to guide us and answer any questions we had. My husband and I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an experienced real estate agent."
Wayne Weismann
Joy is an amazing realtor! She knows exactly what to do to get a property sold quickly. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a top pro to market their property.
Saltiel PhD Director UCSD
It was an absolute pleasure and we will be singing your praises to anyone who can listen having picked you out as “The One” by internet. I feel so fortunate that you were “our” team for our Santaluz purchase!
Tamlyn and Joe Orlando
Joy & Rob Bender not only did an exceptional job as the listing agents for our new home, but also proved to be extremely professional, resourceful and critical to the process of us obtaining it. We fell in love with La Jolla and quickly learned that the real estate market is incredibly competitive. Being from out of town, we were very cautious who to trust with this large purchase. It was a tremendous fortune that Joy & Rob were on the selling side of the one we ended up choosing. Joy, who showed us the home, immediately impressed us with her professionalism & we were sold on the house within minutes. She also demonstrated a rare ability to serve her sellers interests and ours at the same time helping us craft our offer on the spot. Her problem solving & negotiating skills were swift and second to none. With a quick closing and several moving factors, Joy & Rob together designed a win/win arrangement and worked with our agent seamlessly. They both would answer questions within minutes (sometimes seconds) and made a potentially stressful situation smooth, pain free and actually pleasant. The execution of the entire process was precise, accurate and professional. Timing was critical and without Joy & Rob’s good work, we may not have acquired the house. During our closing it was obvious that the seller was also pleased. They are clearly as respected by their long term clients as they are by us. When it comes to Real Estate, where a lot of funds are at stake, timing is everything and the devil is in the details, we recommend Joy & Rob if you want to be in the best of hands. We are grateful they were there for us.

Both Tina and myself wanted to let you both know how invaluable your advice and guidance has been with both the purchase of 5614 Dolphin Place and the sale of our home at 423 Westbourne Street in La Jolla. Your negotiating skills are spectacular, particularly with the unusual way in which we structured the purchase contract. Your people skills allowed us to work with the listing agent at Dolphin Place and ultimately convince the sellers to accept our terms of an extended settlement which allowed us time to sell and settle Westbourne. With regard to the sale of Westbourne, your marketing skills were literally the most impressive I have ever seen. Not only did you arrange for various contractors to come into Westbourne over a 48 hour period to get the home into mint show condition, but you also brought in one of the top videographers to put together a stunningly beautiful photographic representation of the home on the internet listing. The photographer also put together a sixty photo slide show that created total buzz and excitement for the home that brought us a first day contract for $90K over the listing price as well as over 100 people at the open house the following day. When the first contract fell out of escrow for a financing technicality that the buyers(who were pre-qualified)had no control over, you very quickly produced a full cash buyer that was willing to close in five days with no contingencies whatsoever. You also kept the buyers believing that the property was “hot” and would sell quickly if they faltered in any way. There is no doubt in my mind that you are both going to be the top producers in California in the future. Your dogged persistence, superb people skills and phenomenal work ethic insure a very successful future for both of you. I will refer you to as many individuals as possible. Many thanks to both of you for your incredible advice, skill and ultimate successful results on both Westbourne and Dolphin Place.

“We found Joy to be very pleasant, energetic, easy to work with. She was quick to understand what we were looking for. She was prompt with any inquiries, questions or concerns that we had. Very straightforward and not pushy. Closing was very smooth. And above all she found us a tenant within a month after closing. I really appreciate from the depth of my heart for everything she has done so far for us. Looking forward to work with her for all our real estate needs in the San Diego area.”

If you havent found the results you are looking for Call Joy Bender. I have purchased dozens of properties, never has an agent worked so hard for me. Joy was the most profesional agent I have ever encountered.
Suzie Huang Qualcomm Executive San Diego
“Joy thank you for helping me purchase the last short sale investment property. You were very responsive, knowledgeable about the market, and experienced with bank real estate transactions. I would most definitely recommend you to anyone in the future looking to purchase a property in San Diego.”
Bruce Nguyen
I am strongly recommended Joy anytime / any day I am very please with her work, experience. Time with her is not an issue, she will be very patient with you, very professional and sharp at the current market ... She has a strong network / professional team that will help you settle with your dream house ..
Dave Burkhart
Joy Bender lives up to the title of Short Sale Specialist. Joy took on our home without batting an eye. Now with that said, our home is what in the business refers to as ´quaint´. Translated this means OMG this house is old. Joy sat down with us, explained our options and outlined an aggressive game plan. Within three months, the short sale was completed. During that time Joy was available to answer any questions and she kept us informed on the current status. We highly recommend Joy to anyone who is serious about utilizing the short sale process. Thanks Joy.
Katie Huebner
Joy was great at helping me through getting the pre-approval process started all the way up to closing by being so detail oriented and organized. I will highly recommend Joy as a realtor to anyone who I run into. Joy, let me reassure you that I am so grateful becuase I have heard so many horror stories from other first time homebuyers and you were great! Everyone I have talked to can’t believe how smooth you made the entire process of buying my first home for me. Thank you!
Annabelle T
I found Joy on zillow after researching many different agents. In real estate we say time is of the essence, and Joy Bender gets that. You don’t get a second chance in this market, with multiple offers and homes coming on and off the market very quickly. Watching new inventory, previewing, and having an unprecedented response time was important to me in selecting an agent. As listings came on the market in addition to the automated feed on her website Joy would email me directly an pertinent listing with corresponding feedback that I found very helpful.
President of Nielsen Perishables
“Joy Bender is a hardworking and dedicated realtor and we strongly recommend her. We highly value her responsiveness and appreciated the number of hours she spent with us in person, and by phone and email, keeping us informed and updated throughout the process. She showed extraordinary professionalism and we could not have had better support. The personal attention and direction she provided over several months resulted in finding the perfect home for us.”
Jo Fabiano
Thank you very much for helping us with our first time purchase! From the first time I talked on the phone with you I knew I could count on your knowledge and professional advise to help us find a home that was best for us. Thank you Joy for not giving up on us when it seemed like we could not get the paperwork required to finalize the loan so we could finish. You stood by us until we had success.
It was a pleasure working with Joy Bnder. As a first time home buyer, I was very confused going about to get a home. During this whole process, I didn’t feel like I was walking through this by myself, because she was always reachable. Either by phone or email, she seemed to get back to me really quick. Thank you for always being very patient with me. A friend asked me, “How come your process of buying a home went so fast?” And I was proud to say “Because I am working with a really good team.” I always hear how other people complain about their first time buying a home being so complicated and I got to say, thanks for not putting me in the same boat as everyone else. My first time buying a home experience was great! Thank you very much!
Owners of K1 Speed
“Joy has been a great agent to work with she is very aggressive never sleeps always on the go looking to help us find the right house. Even though she shows you 20 and you say no she wont stop until you find what you are looking for! It was a pleasure and will choose her again for the next house.”
The Hill’s, San Elijo Hills Home Owner
“It was an absolute pleasure working with Joy. She exuded true professionalism while handling the sale of our house and quickly responded to our inquiries during the process. Unfortunately our home situation was a shortsale which required several negotiations with the bank. Joy was able to get the loan closed quickly and with no costs to us. We moved across the country during the process and she kept us well informed of every step along the way. I would HIGHLY recommend Joy to anyone selling their home – especially in a short sale scenario!”
Kendra Ladrido SIA Tech San Diego
I worked with her to sell a home in Temecula. Joy is a true professional, she was incredibly helpful. She provided great advice and negotiated an amazing price. Her attention to detail is excellent from the very beginning until the deal was done. We will definitely call her if we ever move again
Mark Nelson Coronado, CA
I worked with her to sell a home in Temecula, and purchase a new home in San Diego. My experience with Joy was great. She is very knowledgeable in real estate, has many contacts and resources, and the purchase of our new home was flawless. When working with Joy, I realized that she has been in the business for a long time and really knows what it takes to get things done correctly. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a new home or investment property, she really made the buying process easy and I love my new home! Thanks Joy
Lisa and Mike Bond owners of Bond Automotive
“Joy, Mike and I want to thank you for the exceptional job you did helping us purchase our latest investment property. We own multiple properties and have never met an agent as impressive as yourself. I think you’re the best and just referred you to my brother. We trust your advice which is really important in today’s real estate market. You are an amazing agent, and we were lucky to find you for our latest purchase. ”
