Wendy Logan after the purchase of her home....
" To Whom it may Concern,
Jo Poindexter helped us out so much looking for Real Estate, she went beyond and above helping us, and if and when we ever look again, or anyone we know we will look Jo up again, and I hope to keep in touch with her cause she made me feel good when helping us. I myself cannot tell you just how much she went out of her way. We really appreciated her and will pas her name on to any one we cross that is looking or selling Real Estate.
Thank you again so much,
May God Bless you always,"
Wendy was a pleasure to work with, and fun to be around, she was eager and full of energy, something I will never forget because she was my first home sale, and my first friend I found along the way.
Patrick Rapozo after the purchase of his home....
Patrick later used me again for the purchase of land...
"To Whom it may Concern,
I know Jo Poindexter through her work during the past summer, when she served as a real estate agent.
Jo became involved in the purchase of a home for us. In addition to assisting, Jo was also instrumental in the final sale.
Jo has shown the kind of initiative which is necessary to be successful over the long-term in the real estate field. She has excellent skills, and remains focused on the overall needs of the client. I believe she is a strong real estate agent and has an excellent future. She is a conscientious worker and has an excellent work ethic. We would gladly use Jo again.
I recommend Jo without Reservation.
Hawaii & Alaska
Patrick and Valerie remain friends to this day, and spoil me rotten with goodies from Hawaii, tastes that I would never experience if I did not have such a great job where your clients become your friends, and life is grand!!
Julie and Bob Wasser...ended up going with a FSBO...
We would like to say thank you for all the help you gave us in looking for a new home. Even though we found a place through friends, we were so pleased with the considerate, pleasant atmosphere we received at your place of business.
Jo you were so attentive and right on track with what we needed and we have already recommended you to others. If in the future we look for another property; for others or ourselves you will definitely be the one we seek out.
Jo you are very knowledgeable in your field and it shows. I have to say I have never had such a quick response to a request. Thank you again for your help.
Julie A Wasser & Bob too"
Hank and Ann Woehr after the purchase of their home....
Jo was instrumental in locating our home. Our home is the center for our family and friends; it has the best of the Alaskan hospitality and beauty. Jo continued not just to secure our dream but supported us as we established ourselves in our home and in our community. We still feel like we have not just found a new home but a new friend in Alaska.
Hank and Ann Woehr"
What can I say about such a great couple of people as Hank and Ann, I will never let these two go, you just never know when they might need another load of wood, or when Ann might have another batch of those delicious cookies coming out of the oven.
Dave and Jane Stein after the sale of their 4-plex...
"Attn: Jo Poindexter
Dave and I were very pleased in the manner of which you put our property on the market and handled all the big and little details of successfully selling our 4-plex. We appreciate all you did for us and have and will recommend you to sincerely represent the seller very well in any real estate transaction.
Dave and Jane Stein"
As I grew to really appreciate the conversations with Dave and Jane, I must say I also became quite good friends with their best friend... the dog of the home. It was a pleasure working with such honest, and sincere people, I was happy to add them to my friends list, along with being some of the best clients I ever worked with.
James & Janet McKinnon after the purchase of their new home...
Hi, I was writing you to let you know that you did a great job finding our house for us, and helping us all the way through the process of buying it.
James A McKinnon
P.S. When we get ready to sell in about four years we plan on having you sell it for us."
True heartfelt friends is how I describe James and Janet, just to sit and visit with them and being able to handle such an important transaction, these two made it easy because they made me feel like one of the family, and in turn, I will never forget our way too brief time together that it took to find them a home.
Scott and Breanna Bloom after the purchase of their home...
"Jo, Breanna and I truly did appreciate your help. You are welcome to use any of this in your advertisements.
First we appreciated your attention, promptness and willingness to work with our schedule. I know you were often busy, but you took the time with us that we needed, and did not make us feel rushed.
You did a great job narrowing down houses based on our preference, budget and changing desires. The only properties we had no interest in were properties we found ourselves, bottom line, you saved us a lot of time.
What we appreciated the most is that we didn't feel like you were trying to sell us a house, but instead were helping us to buy a house we wanted. This made it possible for us to rely on comments and answers to our questions. We felt that we could trust your opinions. We definitely did not feel pressured in any manner.
You made our home buying experience fun, instead of overly stressful. We definitely appreciated your encouragement to take our time and look around, to talk among ourselves, and get a feel for each property.
We appreciated your experience, I felt that we could rely on it, again this was because we did not feel you were trying to sell us anything, but helping us.
The end result speaks for itself. We bought a house that we love, can afford, I cannot imagine living anywhere else. Breanna has often said to me that she would have a much harder time getting through the winter if she didn't like our home so much. We love our yard, our view, and being on the river.
We also appreciate how easy you made the closing, paperwork, etc.
If we were to buy another property in the future, we would definitely go through you again. You never left a message unreturned, or question unanswered, you never showed up late and never made us feel that your interests were different from ours.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your around.
P.S. Thanks for the cutting board and vase."
What a fun couple Scott and Breanna were to work for, they knew what they wanted, and I worked hard to make sure that they got to see everything that was out there. But when they saw "their house" they knew it, and then from then on, it was just a matter of making sure that they were getting the best deal we could get them, and making sure they were knowledgeable about the area. When I happened on them in the store with their new baby, they were happy, and what more could you ask for than to make your clients happy.
Lee and Phern Sells on the sale of their home... and their continued letters after their move.....
"To Diane Melton-Broker
From: Lee and Phern Sells
Subject: Jo Poindexter
We wish to bring attention to the professionalism of Jo Poindexter of your office.
She has been most attentive to our needs, brought us through each step in the sale of our house and gave advice that we were eager to follow.
We've enjoyed our association with Jo and want you to know we will recommend her to our friends, enemies, and everyone in between.
Jo has been most honest with us, she has always looked out for us. Don't let her get away.
Lee and Phern Sells"
Alaska to Oregon
Letter from the Sells after they bought a home in Oregon...
We had some before and after pictures done on our new home and thought you might like to see them. We felt like you were family by the time we left Alaska. You don't know how we wished you could have taken care of our real estate transaction here.
The pictures (except the first one) are numbered in the right hand corner. The odd number are the before and the even numbers are now. We are not quite done with the inside and will not start out side until next spring when we will be landscaping and putting on a covered porch in front and large covered deck in the back.
It is so great to be back in the dessert country; and among old friends. We hope that some day we get a call from you saying you will be down for a visit. We are almost done with the guest room.
Hope you enjoy the pictures
Lee and Phern"
And the saga continues, I love hearing from Lee and Phern, I received a Christmas movie of their new home, that was quite enjoyable with the narrative, almost made me cry to hear Pherns voice and to hear Lee joking in the background, this is one couple that I adopted as my parents... I shall never forget them, and they shall always remain my friends no matter how far they are from Alaska.....
JD and Laurelee LeBlanc after the purchase of their home...
You're such a great person to work with!!! We enjoyed working with you, purchasing our home. During such a stressful (for us) time, you told us funny stories, really listened to what we were looking for in a porperty, and cheerfully walked through snow banks and over ice to show us areas and houses. We had fun!
With best wishes,
JD & Laurelee
Although JD and Laurelee were a shared client, I will always feel like they were my client, from the lunches and great conversation to the waiting while they bought winter boots, and the way they stay in touch so I can see the progress as they make the "house they bought, the "home they want, true friends are everywhere if you just know where to look and appreciate their individuality!!!
Chrissy Aldridge after the long hunt for the right home for her son....
Chrissy was fun to work with, a blast to spend time with, and in the end, I had found myself another friend, that liked to do many of the same things I like to do, she will forever be in my heart, because I hear her voice and it sings to me....She wrote me this poem:
"Jo" My Realtor!
We searched high... we search low,
We waded knee high thru the snow.
We looked at some homes that were so bad,
We made several offers that made the sellers mad!
We got los, we drove miles almost everyday,
But we always had fun along the way.
Some homes were falling down,
Some homes were in the wrong part of town.
We looked at apartments, hangers for planes,
Some days it was sunny some days it would rain.
But you never gave up, and spend many long nights,
Going home late with hopes of the right house in sight!
We got locked out of cars, when it was minus three,
You were patient, and funny while retrieving my key.
It all started with looking on the mighty Kenai,
Things changed quickly when we found out prices were to damn high!
We had to look FSBO... when things got rough,
But we hung in there, cuz you were tough!
Finally it came... To a Journeys end...
We found the right home and had money to spend!
It's kind of sad that we are thru...
It was fun working with you.
But it's not over, I still have a few bucks...
We have to check out the River and hope for some luck.
You are a great Realtor and I thank-you from my heart,
Thanks to you my son got a great start!"
Great Poem by: Chrissy Aldridge
Herman Olson after being in his new home for awhile....
"Jo, I was just sitting here enjoying the house, and my grandson,... and thinking how thankful I am,... that I had you for an agent,... to help me find this home. Thank you very much. You were very patient and understanding. I very much appreciate all your work and dedication to helping me...
Although a man of few words, and very serious, I enjoyed the peaceful feeling that "WAS" when helping Herman find his home. I also enjoyed seeing him smile when he had found that home. Thank you Herman for letting me help you, you also gave me a knowledge of peace and quiet and understanding....
Letter from Signe and Dan Anderson after many great times working for her....
"I have worked with Jo Poindexter on six transactions. She has helped me sell land and two homes. She also helped me buy three homes. Every one of them has been a smooth transaction and enjoyable. Jo is an excellent Realtor. She knows what she is doing and will make sure that your needs and wants come first. She is very fast and proficient in dealing with the paperwork side of the Realtor business. She is also very accommodating and has great communication. She makes sure the job gets done! I never had to worry if Jo wasn't doing her job or if the paperwork wasn't going to get done, she is on top of everything. Jo always kept me up to date on everything that was going on with my transactions. She'll go out of her way to accommodate your needs. Jo makes you feel like you're not just a customer, but a friend. I love Jo and think she's one of the best Realtors. I recommend her highly and you wont' be disappointed with Jo!
After so many times working with Signe, I feel like she is part of my family, as my family grows, I hope that I can continue to live up to her words and the words of all my clients, I love my job, and I love working with caring and loving people, that just need to know that they are the most important people to a Realtor when making one of the biggest decisions of their life. So thank-you many times over Signe for allowing me to aid you when you were buying and selling... You will always be a friend and I am so glad you brought Dan along this time, so I could get to enjoy the two of you...
