Testimonials

"JoAnn Dickinson is absolutely one of the finest, most knowledgeable and honest agents I have worked with. As a home inspector she has demonstrated to me time and again that she is more concerned about making sure her buyer clients get the best possible home, not just with making a sale. And for sellers, you could not ask for a finer person to represent you and your home. JoAnn Dickinson gets 6 stars in a 5 star rating system!"

I could not speak more highly of JoAnn. She was a great guide through the whole process and willingly answered even my dumbest questions. If we decide to sell our house in the future, we will be calling JoAnn.

JoAnn was simply fabulous. I don't see how we could have handled buying the property without her. Very prompt and very proactive. She kept the process moving, invested a lot of time in the details and was a pleasure to deal with all the way through. Used here references for many of the local details and all of them were terrific. I can't recommend her more highly.

JoAnn profoundly cares about the relationships she creates. She will go above and beyond to ensure whatever obstacles arise are conducted professionally, tactfully, and achieved with your best interest in mind-she proved it in spades. Whether it's assessing a property, buying, renovating, or managing problems, JoAnn and her team have your needs covered. Rest assured, her genuine caring demeanor made my not-so-average acquisition the smoothest possible experience. I am grateful I found her and blessed to find a friend in JoAnn.

We couldn't be more pleased with our selling experience thanks to JoAnn. We selected her to list our house in Running Springs due to her enthusiasm, professionalism, and extensive knowledge of the area. She provided invaluable listing and staging advice, leading to a 28 hour sale! She guided us through a speedy fourteen day escrow with newborn twins. Communication was prompt, clear, and professional. We cannot recommend JoAnn highly enough, and are grateful for her support in selling our beautiful mountain home!

JoAnn helped guide me, a clueless (and very pregnant!) first time home buyer with a USDA loan, through my journey to home ownership in the San Bernadino mountains. She had her work cut out for herself working with my needs, yet she handled it with not only the utmost professionalism, speed, and attention to detail but also with the care and a feeling of personal investment to get our young family into a nice home. I'll be eternally grateful for JoAnn!

My wife and I started working with JoAnne Dickinson in early 2020 and recently closed escrow on the purchase of a beautiful single family home in Lake Arrowhead California. My wife describes this as a dream come true. The process couldn't have been easier or more pleasant. JoAnne identified properties that matched our criteria perfectly, and identified the home we ultimately purchased the same day it was listed. We made our successful offer the following day and closed escrow in under 20 days. We highly recommend JoAnne Dickinson for your home purchase. As an experienced realtor and mountain resident, JoAnne guided us through the unique requirements of choosing a mountain home, and exceeded our expectations. My wife and I are extremely satisfied.

JoAnn Dickinson is absolutely fantastic! I just made my first home purchase with her in Lake Arrowhead and she made the process extremely smooth and as easy as possible for me. I was a bit hesitant to use a real estate agent recommended by Zillow without doing my due diligence of finding someone on my own, but I am so lucky she was available to take me on as a client. I was very specific in what I was looking for in a home, and she went above and beyond to send me options and take the time to do LOTS of home appointments with me. She also put up with my constant texts and questions haha. JoAnn also has incredible knowledge of the area, seems to know everyone on the mountain, and has endless recommendations for contractors and handy men. The market is extremely hot right now, it is a sellers market with people buying property in the mountains to avoid the city, and I feel the only way I was able to get my offer accepted on my house was because of her advice. I highly recommend her for your real estate needs : )

My wife and I recently purchased a lot in the Lake Arrowhead area. We found JoAnn Dickinson to be very knowledgeable, professional, diligent, organized and patient at all times. She offers great advice and coaching too. We have dealt with MANY agents over the years, JoAnn is a cut above the rest! We look forward to using her in the future. I'd recommend JoAnn to anyone.
Boyan's
JoAnn is simply the finest agent my wife and I have ever worked with! She was a dream. She anticipated every twist and turn, she was gracious and smart and responsive and when necessary quite resourceful. She knows everyone in the area so it was like having a personal introduction to everyone who is best to work with when joining a new community. She gave a 150% in helping us arrange a purchase from another city. If you are considering moving to the area, call JoAnn and her husband Charlie. They are lovely people, friendly, deeply experienced ... they really were a joy to work with and we will stay in touch as we become part of the Lake Arrowhead community.
Larry & Sharry S.
Working with JoAnn was amazing. She was very helpful with answering all of our questions prior to even listing and then she made sure our property was highly visible. We accepted an offer within 3 days of listing! She navigated through any issues that came up throughout escrow so we could close quickly. I would highly recommend working with JoAnn, especially when selling or buying in the mountains!
Laura K.
JoAnn Dickinson is a true professional, who responded immediately to our every concern, and who went far beyond normal expectations to find us our dream home. She took the time to build a relationship with us that we trusted 100%! She showed us properties on four separate weekends, throughout four different months, to make sure we found the perfect home that checked all our boxes. We never felt rushed. It was like shopping for homes, with family, who has your best interest in mind. We are eternally grateful that we found JoAnn, and that she shared her insight and experience in locating and sealing the deal, on our forever home. If you value these qualities in your real estate agent, and you want to feel like someone really cares about your dream, call JoAnn. We are sure happy we did! She will not disappoint!

Buyer
JoAnn Dickinson helped my spouse and I buy a weekend cabin in the San Bernardino mountains. At every step the process, JoAnn was attentive to our needs and always two steps ahead of everyone else! When we first met JoAnn, she asked lots of questions so that she could identify homes that were right for us. This was especially helpful in narrowing our search for a second home, while also juggling full-time jobs a few hours away. We quickly discovered that she is extremely knowledgeable about mountain properties and the pros and cons of making an investment in the various communities on the mountain. Throughout the process, she was extremely patient and made sure that we found a home that we loved that was also a good investment. After we made an offer, we benefited from JoAnn’s eagle eye and connections with inspectors and contractors. She was good about coordinating with all parties — inspectors, contractors, and the seller’s agent — to ensure that we got a fair deal. We recommend her without qualification. Working with JoAnn was the best decision we made! Can’t wait to work with her again.

You will have a hard time finding a BETTER realtor than JoAnn! We had a wonderful experience working with her to sell our house in Crestline. She is the consummate professional and extremely easy to work with. JoAnn is very experienced and knowledgeable which is so valuable. Her ideas are excellent. She is dependable and reliable to follow through with what needs to be done to expedite the sale. We could go on and on about how impressed we are with JoAnn and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell real estate. Thank you so much for all you have done on our behalf.

JoAnn responded immediately to my messages and was very helpful and informative throughout the whole process. It is our first time buying a home and we felt confident JoAnn was working hard on our behalf! We are so pleased with our little cabin and would definitely recommend JoAnn to anyone listing or buying!
Jessica P.
We have been working with a couple of different realtors before we met JoAnn and we are so happy with her service, help and educating us in the home hunting process. We were able to avoid many potential repairs/cost with her guidance and explanations. The communications is by far, THE BEST. If you are looking for the property in San Bernardino or Orange County make sure you keep JoAnn on your side and cruise!!!!!!!!!

We have worked with JoAnn twice--once for buying and once for selling--and we would do it again! She and her husband are incredibly knowledgable of the mountain real estate, local workers and other local agents. They are incredibly easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions. She is honest and upfront, and works hard to help you find what you are looking for, all while staying respectful to the parties involved. I also love how flexible she was. If you're looking for a mountain home, you need a mountain agent. And JoAnn is amazing!
The Wolf's
JoAnn Dickinson is a fantastic real estate professional. She is always pleasant and super responsive. She is the kind of person that made me feel special, and I am so lucky to have found this talented person. She selects only the best and affordable people with which to work. If a difficulty pops up unexpectedly she gets to work and solves what needs to be solved immediately. JoAnn makes it all easy because she has the knowledge to know what to do. In a word she is amazing! She helped me buy a home in Crestline, and then when I was ready to sell she sold it. Three days after the for sale sign went into the ground she sold it. Choose JoAnn Dickinson to sell or buy a home; you will be thrilled with the results.
MJ
JoAnn was amazing throughout the buying process. She was there every step of the way with great advice and incredible knowledge of Lake Arrowhead. She found us our dream home and negotiated a great deal. Her helping hands on approach and personal touches didn't end with the sale. We are still in touch as we begin our re-model. She knows all the local artisans and crafts people and we couldn't be happier with the results. Can't imagine using anyone else in the future and hope to remain friends after the remodel is out of the way. She's an 11 on a scale of 1-10. Amazing, honest, thorough and is available 24/7. Thanks Joann from Anne and I!

Gary & Rita O.
We have bought and sold many homes. We have experienced different agents of varying caliber. Joann is amongst the best of the best. We have never had an agent that was not only easy to work, she helped us find the perfect second home and handled so many details since we were long distance. We did not have to worry about anything - she handled everything and anticipated issues before they arose. She did so much heavy offing for us. Her communication was amazing. She was fast and followed up on every detail. She made this process so easy. I never knew buying house could be easy. And trust me, there were many challenges along the way. Joann handled them all and kept us updated. She shouldered the stressful moments for ourselves. She was not focused on making the sale, but focused on making us happy. I highly recommend her.

JoAnn is not only a reliable and supportive person to work with, but she is well versed in the local area, and in handling real estate transactions. We had a very difficult situation with our selling agent which caused numerous unnecessary complications, but JoAnn came to our rescue, going well above and beyond to get our deal back on track, soothing our nerves, and getting us to completion. You don't realize how important a strong and competent realtor is till you need one, and JoAnn proved just how good she is and helped us purchase the mountain cabin of our dreams!

JoAnn knows all of the neighborhoods on the mountian, and showed me a good amount of homes, which was awesome because she worked around my busy work schedule.

Both of the times i've used JoAnns service shes always done a great job talking to the seller, she helped me get the best deal i think was possible, and took out a lot the stress of buying this home.

Travis B.
JoAnn is a real professional that makes what could be a stressful process into a joyful fun and friendly transaction. I had to find a home fast because my previous had sold. I had a limited budget yet needed space to move in my belongings. I felt that JoAnn had a focused and commited attention to my needs. I was amazed to find out she had more than a handful of other buyers in escrow. JoAnn had given me the impression I was her one and only client during my home search. I landed in a mountain home I love. I am so grateful and fortunate to have partnered with JoAnn.
Frank H.
JoAnn was just wonderful to work with! She hung in there with me for several years until I found the right house for my needs. She listened to my preferences and kept them in mind when sending me listings. She even helped me with refs for plumbers and tree trimmers etc to help ease my transition even after the close of escrow! Can’t praise her enough!!

We recently purchased a second home in Lake Arrowhead. JoAnn represented us during the initial search for a new home to the close of escrow. Her professionalism and knowledge of buying and selling real estate is exceptional. As owners of multiple homes, we know that the purchase of a new home can be very stressful, especially when you are not very familiar with the area. JoAnn made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. Any little snag was foreseen and handled promptly. All our questions were answered thoroughly without hesitation demonstrating her up to date knowledge of real estate contracts and also of the Community itself. We hit the Jackpot with JoAnn for sure. We recommend her highly for any of your real estate needs.

JoAnn is a pleasure to work with and was a great asset on my home buying team, always quick to respond, very familiar with the mountain real estate market, and above all else, I was able to trust her advice and judgment. I bought with confidence knowing I had a professional advising me.

JoAnn helped us buy a home in Lake Arrowhead. She is very knowledgeable about the market and is able to steer you to the right direction when it comes to buying a vacation home. What we loved about JoAnn was her ability to connect with us and understand our need for a home as we have different limitations. I very highly recommend her and hope to work with her in the future.

JoAnn Dickenson is the ultimate professional. Showed me the property I bought instantly. Always available to answer any and all questions. Always on time for any appointments. JoAnn has extensive knowledge of the Lake Arrowhead area and sourounding area. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
T. Brickly
There are dozens of real estate agents in the Lake Arrowhead area but there’s only one who I believe is the hardest working—I swear JoAnn works around the clock! It could have been somewhat difficult for me to sell my mountain cabin because I live over 85 miles away but it wasn’t. JoAnn helped me to get my property “ready for sale” by making recommendations to improve its selling appeal as well as suggesting minor cosmetic repairs to make. She made arrangements to meet a contractor for me at the property and then inspected the completed work to be sure it had been done satisfactorily. Once the cabin was listed, JoAnn always kept me posted on showings to clients as well as conversations with other agents about the property. When an offer came in, she answered my gazillion questions and explained very clearly the many complex details of the contract. She always kept in touch with the buyer’s lender and the escrow company to make sure everything was moving along smoothly. When an additional smoke alarm was required, JoAnn didn’t hesitate to get one and install it herself…how’s that for service! What impresses me most about JoAnn is how responsive she is…whether it’s during the day, in the evening, on a weekday, or on the weekend, JoAnn will always let you know her schedule and her availability. Despite the fact she’s extremely busy, she never makes you feel you are taking up her time. She is the consummate professional!

Listing your house can be quite stressful, but our nerves were calmed from the moment we first met with JoAnn. She is professional, friendly and extremely knowledgable and has a great sense of humor too. She had an awesome portfolio with lots of great information that is useful to the homeowner/seller. After our meeting we knew without a doubt we had made the right choice and hired an exemplary agent, superior to any other agent we had used in the past. Throughout our journey she met and went beyond all of our expectations in the sale of our home. If you want the very best agent there is in the world of realtors then call JoAnn Dickinson––there is no better than her. Promptly Returns Calls! Works Hard for her Clients! Gets the Job Done! Goes the Extra Mile!

M. Burkin
JoAnn is phenomenal! When our house did not appraise for the selling price and the sellers refused to sell at that value, JoAnn advised us to stop escrow as she believes that a buyer should avoid purchasing a home that exceeds the appraisal. We followed her advice and soon after the sellers were willing to renegotiate to meet the appraisal value. JoAnn was also readily available to answer all of our questions, big and small, and show us properties in a timely manner. She was a high-capacity broker from beginning to end, which is what every customer needs and deserves in such a stressful and significant process.

JoAnn has been my agent of the sale and purchase of several properties in the Lake Arrowhead area. She is very knowledgeable of the market area. She is articulate and is a master negotiator.

I have met many in the Real Estate profession, but have had the best experience in my recent property purchase with JoAnn Dickenson / Broker. Unlike others in her field, she possesses valued experience, knowledge and willingness to guide you through the challenges of the purchasing process. In addition, I am very pleased at her sincere efforts to expeditiously response to text, email or voicemail. I will recommend her to my associates and would utilize her services again.

In any industry, it is seldom that you come across a professional that truly cares about their clients. JoAnn Dickinson has that rare quality in her profession. That must be the reason for her continued success. JoAnn did a fantastic job selling our home. Like old-fashioned customer service, I always felt that I was her most important client and I could not recommend him more highly.

The first time I met with JoAnn I was so impressed by her that I didn't even interview any other realtors. Her knowledge instilled the confidence that I needed to move forward with the sale of our property. The property sold within 2 weeks and at a price that my husband and I were very pleased with. JoAnn also helped us purchase a new home. Her real-estate knowledge coupled with great advise helped us find our dream home. The stress level of buying and selling at the same time was minimal thanks to JoAnn's involvement. I would highly recommend JoAnn to anyone that has a need for an efficient, knowledgeable and hard working real-estate agent.

After 2 failed attempts with supposedly top agents in the area to sell our home, it was our really good fortune to connect with JoAnn. Not only is she a joy to work with, she never farms out her work, doing her job above and beyond what you would expect. She absolutely looks out for her clients, keeps you in the loop at all times, is smart, tenacious and a true cheerleader when you need it. Its hard to find the genuine article but she truly is, and we would use her services again in a heartbeat. Thank you again JoAnn !! The Harths

We thoroughly enjoyed the process of home buying with JoAnn as our agent. JoAnn's level of expertise reassured us, throughout the home-buying process, that we were always in good hands. JoAnn is a professional real estate agent very familiar with the mountain communities. Additionally, we found her to be very knowledgeable with re: to Real Estate, & Real Estate Laws. I think my wife and I were most impressed by her level of ongoing communication and her solid business ethics. She left a lasting impression on us both and we recommend JoAnn without hesitation.

JoAnn is the best realtor I've experienced to date. She conscientious, detail-oriented and diligent - a trusted advisor. She helped me organize my search for homes and planned the routes and schedules for viewing potential properties. She helped me walk through pros and cons of locations and features to help determine whether a property was a worthwhile investment. She stayed engaged throughout to ensure I was comfortable with my purchase and followed up continuously to ensure the transactions went through smoothly. She even helped resolve property concerns when other parties were less engaged. Even my loan officer was impressed with JoAnn's diligence. I highly recommend JoAnn. She is very empathetic and compassionate. She is straight forward as well. She understands the ups and downs of this critical milestone and helps you work through the hoops!
