Client Testimonials

“I signed up with two agencies during my preliminary home search. Zachary communicated much more with me via email and that is why I chose him. He is professional, pleasant to work with and really cares about his clients and needs. Too many times you work with people and find they really don't seem to care they just want to get you serviced and gone. He is quite the opposite.”

“I needed to help my mother in law suffering with Alzheimer's sell her home in Arroyo Grande. I live in Arizona. I saw Zach Johnson 805 Real Estate advertisement and called. I gave him an explanation on phone as to how to handle her on her condition. He showed up on time and immediately connected with her making her feel valued and dressed respectable. I left town he dealt with her while I was gone missing she is not always an easy person to deal with but he was patient and helpful going above and beyond. We priced the home to sell and we had multiple full price offers within the first two weeks. I couldn’t say enough positive things about Zach. I highly recommend him. Thank you”

We know of no agent that provided the high level professionalism, expertise and willingness to provide the support necessary during the process as Zach. Great experience with nothing but positive outcomes."

"My wife and I are about to have dinner in our beautiful new home and a good deal of thanks for that goes to Zach. We first viewed a home with him 10 months before our final purchase and in the entire time we were looking and finally buying he was amazing!! Zach has a low pressure style, he really listened to our circumstances and got to know us, and while he kept us informed of new homes on the market he never pressured us or pushed anything on us. He was intelligent and well informed and did a great job of walking two new home buyers through the process. When we found a place that looked good but had weird resale restrictions he advised us away from it even though he probably could have gotten the sale. He wanted us to get what we wanted. Once we started making offers he did a great job of communicating with us about all the documents we needed. Loved his great e-document setup! After getting an offer accepted and dealing with a less than perfect lender, Zach did a great job getting us extensions and making sure everything went smoothly. If you want to buy a house call Zach right now. Or call me right now so I can yell at you to call Zach right now. He's a genuine nice guy in an industry of slimy people. You will not be disappointed."

"Zach Johnson is a true real estate pro in every sense. He is highly responsive, listens well and his communication and follow up are awesome. Zach demonstrated his problem solving skills by connecting us with a new lender during escrow when the lender I chose encountered administrative issues. I wholeheartedly recommend Zach to handle your real estate transaction!"

"Zach worked incredibly hard for us and he was so supportive. We were concerned we wouldn't get good service because we were first-time home buyers, but Zach met and exceeded our expectations. Also, he's a genuinely nice guy and I really enjoyed working with him. Thanks Zach!"

"Zachary Johnson proved from the very start to be the go-getter I had hoped for. He was the ONLY realtor to respond to my on-line request and his response was IMMEDIATE. He was extremely helpful since I do not live in the area of the home to be sold. He handled EVERYTHING. He shared realistic expectations and met them to a "T". Thanks Zachary!!"

"I couldn't be more pleased with the service that we received from Zachary. His professionalism was amazing, he continually worked to find properties that matched our criteria, when showing us houses he had a great knowledge of the neighborhood and home that we were seeing. Once we found a home he kept us updated and on top of every step of the process. Once the house had closed Zachary help us with some of the difficult aspects of moving into a home from out of the area. We were completely satisfied from start to finish. Thank you Zach."

"My wife and I couldn't be more pleased with our Realtor. We live about 2 1/2 hrs away so he had to do a lot of the legwork and also be the eyes and ears for us. We feel Zachary is very diligent in his pursuit to please his clients. This is a nice change from other realtors we have dealt with in the past. He definitely knows his stuff too. It seemed like a long search for the right home in our budget, but in the end we received a home we felt unworthy to receive. We enjoyed the whole process, and are truly thankful for Zack being a part of it!"

"Zack was amazing! We were so fortunate that - by the luck of the draw - he was assigned by to show a property to a friend of ours. He not only handled our friend's purchase professionally and efficiently, but then found us a beautiful property. Zack then flawlessly handled a purchase for some other friends of ours. He never complained about all of the questions we had for him, and promptly followed through on every issue. Zack was fun to work with and has a great sense of humor. Thank you so much Zack! You are the best!"

"Zack was extremely responsive to any questions or concerns we had. He was gracious enough to do the walk through for us since we were 4 hours out of town. He communicated our requests to the seller and I felt confident he was getting the best possible deal for us. He did all this with professionalism and a good sense of humor! He's a delight to work with!"

Zach really listened to what I was looking for as a buyer. He showed me properties that where within my budget and never push me to consider a change in my budget or rush into any purchase. Zach is great to work with and also very responsive to calls/emails.  I look forward to working with Zach again and I would recommend him to anyone shopping for a home or investment property in San Luis Obispo County.

You did a superb job closing the Qualls/Clarence house sale. It was a complicated one, no question. You had the Realtor expertise in terms of proper pricing and follow-through. What impressed me as much was the fact that you also could work your way through the receivership world because of your experience as a bank trust officer. I would think the latter would be valuable to any bank or institution seeking a local Realtor such as yourself. I'd be happy to serve as a reference or take a call from any potential client of yours.
Thanks again and I look forward to working with you again."

"Zach really understood what I needed as a buyer. He tirelessly showed me properties, never rushed me, and always took the time to explain the pro's and con's of any particular property. He clearly has extensive knowledge of properties and rental markets on the central coast.

When we began negotiating offers Zach always gave me easy-to-understand advice on what to expect and how to proceed. During escrow Zach helped me navigate the sea of paperwork and always explained each form in detail so I fully understood what I was signing and why. Even after close, Zach continued to help me track down issues and offered sound advice for managing my rental.

Zach's knowledge, professional and work ethic are unsurpassed. I look forward to working with Zach again and recommend him to anyone shopping for a home on the central coast."
