On a More Personal Note...
My life is often an open book here in this blog where I have shared many of my trials and tribulations in the quest for my real estate success while struggling at home with my wife, Sherri and her health.
In 1995, Sherri was diagnosed with a fairly rare form of cancer - CLL and given 5 years. Despite the odds, and six rounds of Chemo she is still here and still defying the odds.
In April 2007 she stopped her Chemo, feeling as if the cure would kill her. Sherri was then put on home hospice and given another sentence of 6 months...and here she is (this is written October 2009) refusing to go anywhere.
So, life is a struggle and never what you want it to be. God has his own plan for all of us and we have to be grateful for what we are given...and that includes our 4 dogs: A Pair of Golden Retrievers, a German Sheppard and the princess of the house, our Dalmatian.
Areas of Expertise
My expertise is in the south West Riverside County, focusing outward from the Hemet - San Jacinto Valley, California in the residential and land marketplace. I like to work with both Buyers & Sellers. My real passion in this industry is the marketing and especially the part I can do on the Internet!
We are DEDICATED to LIVING and WORKING by these CORE VALUES:
Live by the GET BY GIVING Philosophy
Make our Clients #1 GOAL our #1 Goal.
Live up to our Professional Standards despite temptations to lower them.
Be willing to work toward a common good.
Do What we say we'll do and sometimes more..... NEVER LESS.
What OPthers Have to Say About Me...
The best Testimonial I can post is from me just proclaiming how Great GOD is and what a blessing He has been in my life
You should also check out John Occhi - http://activerain.com/mrhemet John was new himself not too long ago. However, he has applied a tremendous amount of effort into learning, researching, and experimenting. He has documented his experiences on his blog. It provides a lot of insight from someone who was in your shoes, but was determined to learn the essentials. David Kyle, Realtor, e-Pro, SEO/SEM
Thank you for a very well written educational post! We wanted you to know that we have included this Blog Post in the Suggested Reading Guide for the Fraiche Aire RendezVous in Black & White.
I've had the recent pleasure of watching some of your real estate investing videos through Google. As someone who has relatively little knowledge of real estate investing, I found your videos to be very helpful and hopefully practical in the near future. I'm a recent college grad who is looking to begin investing in real estate in the near future. At the end of your videos, you make reference to the reports that have inspired the videos. At your discretion, I would be pleased to have a copy of the written reports that you have available; the importance of your credit score, the finding the right mortgage broker, the loan, and the hard money lending reports in particular. Once again, thank you for the content you've posted. Keep up the good work. Look forward to hearing from you soon.
YOU DID IT AGAIN! I keep following you around AR b/c I learn something from each of your post. Thank you for the email and keep up the good work here in AR. You continue to inspire me to offer more to our community.
Ray Nellum, GRI
...We needed to hire not only a professional but the best there is out there. We decided to hire the John Occhi and the Excellence in Real Estate Team! We were amazed with their work: very professional, organized, knowledgeable, and honest! George and Samantha G. ~ San Jacinto CA
John helped my as a first time homebuyer find my perfect home. He walked me through each process and was able to close on the home quickly. John has always been available for any questions I have. If I ever decide to sell, I would not even consider anyone but John to be my Realtor. ~ Gail R. San Jacinto CA
My husband and I were going to be relocating to the Hemet area from Wyoming. We found John online. After contacting him and telling him what we were looking for, he was on it to say the least. After two months of looking by way of emails, pictures, phone, we put a house under contract without ever walking through it. Yes it was a bit scary, but the amount of confidence Shaun and I have had in John, made all of the difference. We closed on our house from Wyoming, and rolled into town two weeks later. The house was beautiful and all ready for us. I can say that having John and his Excellence in Real Estate Team handling this for us made this process and experience a truly Excellent one - thank you one and all. ~ Traci M. Hemet CA
