We have had the good fortune of working with John since 2013. He is a top notch Professional Realtor. His Communication and Negotiation skills are amazing. You can totally rely on him to honestly represent your best interest for the outcome that you hired him to bring to a satisfactory completion. We hired him to sell our house while we had Tenants to a Buyer that would hold the Tenants through their Lease. He said he was an experienced Realtor and specialized in doing those kinds of sales in our area. We were delighted when he very quickly found a Buyer and completed the sale fast and smoothly. John always responded to our Calls/Emails/Texts in an fast efficient manner, at the start, during and after any and all Transactions with him. Over the years since that sale we have been in contact with him regarding various Real Estate transactions where he has continually given us good and timely advise and referrals to other Real Estate experts in the area we live in now that’s out of state. That’s what we mean about After our Sales Transaction. John is one of the most conscientious and caring persons we have ever done business with. We highly recommend John for all of your Real Estate Transactions. You will be happy! We are so happy with John Stenberg. Thank you John for everything.

Daryl and Cynthia Foster

John is an experienced, detailed, and professional Broker that we have used for multiple transactions over the past 8 plus years. John always works diligently throughout our transactions with our best interests in mind. John's experience and depth of knowledge helped us greatly in acquiring our new home, a complex transaction with multiple parcels of land and out of country seller. John's market knowledge and contract expertise put us in a good place throughout negotiations and escrow. John was able to help us secure our property well below asking price and saved us big through protective contract language. We have and will continue to highly recommend John Stenberg to everyone we know needing a Real Estate Professional.

Arnel Paynista

John Stenberg has been my realtor agent since 2007 and he has guided me in three home purchases and selling one of my properties. Just recently, we closed an escrow even with many restrictions due to the pandemic and John Stenberg and her associate Michelle Grudon worked tirelessly to get everything done on time. It was a stress free negotiation throughout the entire transaction because John and Michelle did everything and even negotiated to save us $60,000 in the purchase of our new home. John knows how to make things happen and he will go beyond his clients expectation because he treats us like his own family. More power to John Stenberg and Michelle Grudon and hoping to do another business with them in the future.

I can’t say enough about John Stenberg and his team. Professional, skilled, proficient - are some of the many qualities they possess. John helped us find our dream home. Without a doubt, he has a client-first mentality and always delivers on what is best for you. It’s hard to find someone you can TRUST with probably the biggest and most important decision in your life, buying a home. With John, he’s there every step of the way keeping you informed and answering any questions or concerns. He is experienced and knowledgeable about the real estate business, a quality that you want in your real estate agent. I now consider John a close friend and colleague and I highly recommend him to everyone that is searching for a home.

J. Darosa

John is the ideal agent and a true professional! My wife and I were immediately impressed with John's level of Knowledge and expertise. Working with him we recently purchase two investment properties. He assisted us throughout entire process, from identifying target properties, negotiations, securing a lender and resolving issues prior to closing. His accessibility and frequent communications with my wife and I, made the entire process stress free. After close of escrow, John has gone the extra mile to help us find contractors to do repairs on the homes and select tenants. I look forward to working with John in the future, he is extremely responsive and honest.

Cliff Bernstein

The experience I had with John couldn't have gone better. We did his suggested pre-sale marketing plan, he got the house under contract at 10% above our target list price within 48 hours, and the escrow closed in 30 days. At the time we also were fixing up the house and John had great recommendations for cost-effective fixtures that gave the place extra charm at below what we were planning on spending. He is also very responsive, and truly cares about his clients. I would highly recommend working with him.

Marline Sanchez

John Stenberg assisted us during the purchase of our first home. It was a pleasure working with someone so professional, honest and efficient. Through the short, easy process we never felt uninformed or anxious of what the next step would be. We are so happy that we met John because all of our needs were met. We plan on purchasing an investment property in the near future and already know that the only realtor we'd ask to assist us is John. Thank you for everything, we absolutely love our home!

Valley Castle

My husband and I are seasoned sellers and buyers (40 plus years). We needed a real estate broker with experience and knowledge. We are so happy to have found John Stenberg, over 8 years ago and several transactions since. John recently sold our home for us in 1 week! The transaction was extra smooth! Thanks again John! He is always professional and a great communicator during the whole process and beyond! We appreciate John’s over 30 years of experience and knowledge! We highly recommend John Stenberg!


I recently sold a home with John as my agent. The house was in Del Mar Heights area of San Diego and we sold the house in approximately 90 days. John possesses all of the attributes any seller or buyer would hope for in a real estate agent/broker. He had many creative ideas on how to promote the house and was willing to change strategies as the market demanded. I plan on working with John in the future on my next home purchase and or home sale. I would highly recommend him to anybody.

Julie Christine

John you did an outstanding job on the sale of my home. I can't thank you enough for your professionalism, expertise, and hard work in the process of the short sale. You were very attentive to my needs as a client and thoroughly explained everything during the negotiations and closing. I was very impressed with your knowledge and dedication, always diligent in meeting all the requests during the process. In fact, I have already recommended you to my friends. Amazing job!


John was amazing throughout the entire process. His knowledge of pre-marketing was instrumental in how quickly our home sold. Never even had to list it! With his help the entire process was stress free and very smooth without a single glitch. His communication and accessibility was above and beyond and we are so grateful for his skills and abilities. I have already recommended him to several people for their possible future real estate needs.

Tecate Slim

John and his team worked diligently during this unique COVID-19 era to get multiple offers on our house and ultimately have it sold for top dollar. He was professional, flexible, accommodating and communicative. This is the second time we've used John with our real estate needs and I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to buy or sell a home.


I had finally found ahome that suits my family's needs through my broker John Stenberg who did an astounding job . He's been so determined in helping me out from the beginning through the end (closing of escrow) considering what i /we need . With these, i strongly will recommend him to my friends and family as he is really a reliable one.

Kelly Conan

I have know John for over 40 years and have interacted with him on a personal and professional level on countless occasions. The one thing that I cannot express enough gratitude for, was the smooth process of selling and purchasing of my homes. It can be very stressful times but with John, you can sit back and let him work his magic.

John and Michelle were very impressive. They are totally up to speed with all the recent changes in their industry regarding the COVID issues. They kept me informed every step and closed in record time. I couldn’t be more satisfied. I would highly recommend John to anyone who needs a great agent!
