‟I am writing a review as a first time home buyer with almost zero experience - or perhaps zero experience actually. I am blown away by this process - its been so crazy honestly. We thought about buying a house on a Monday and after working with Johnny for less than a week we had an offer accepted on a house 30k under asking with so many things incl … uded to get us the best deal possible. We are currently in escrow so I can't say how it all ended out yet but working with Johnny feels like working with a good friend. Not just a good friend to us but a good friend to the community. Not only will Johnny make sure you are taken care of through the process he has high integrity and a great reputation throughout the community. You will finish the home buying process saying that you understood everything and made the best choices and decisions. We are grateful and feel blessed to have had him as our realtor” Read More ▾

‟Johnny, Steve and Julie make a great team! We received amazing service from all three. They even walked our dog during a few of our showings. They gave us honest feedback on how to prepare our home for showings which was very helpful. At all times we felt that they had our best interest in mind and when it came to negotiating our contract with the … buyer it went extremely smoothly. Throughout the escrow period we were kept up to date throughout the process and received emails reminding us of what we needed to do as homeowners before our closing. These guys (and Julie) are the best” Read More ▾
‟Our experience with The Ferreira Group was one of the most positive we've had with a realtor. Our primary contact was Steve Ferreira whose negotiation skills ensured our offer was accepted without compromise. Johnny managed the transaction from that point on, and it was smooth sailing from beginning to end. All interactions with The Ferreira Group … were refreshingly honest and straightforward, and we always felt they were working for us, not trying to just close the deal. We won't hesitate to use The Ferreira Group for our future real estate needs” Read More ▾
‟Johnny & Steve were fantastic. They made the process as simple as possible in a very competitive market. Where they really came through was during the negotiation process, which is the most important part. They took the time to walk through all the details and had our best interests in mind. I felt comfortable and really trust their knowledge a … nd expertise. They also sold our condo, and it was the fastest and smoothest transaction, couldn't have asked for better. Julie, in their office, helped us with all the paperwork and kept us on track. We are so happy in our home but if we ever move we won't hesitate to pick up the phone and call Johnny and Steve” Read More ▾
‟I would give Steve & Julie (Steve's assistant) 10 stars if I could. If it weren't for this Dynamic Duo, we would not have the beautiful house we have today. Steve's extensive experience, efficiency and expertise were the main factors in the seller choosing our offer over multiple others. As soon as the offer was officially signed, Steve went to … bat negotiating for repairs. He made sure we had a thorough understanding of any issues with the house and played hardball until he got us the best possible credit - which was more than we had hoped for. His team stayed in touch almost daily and also worked directly with our finance guy and Escrow company to make sure that everyone was on the same page and things were moving along. We ran into a major snag with some solar issues that the seller had not disclosed up front. Julie spent countless hours on the phone working with the solar company and escrow. She took care of all of the necessary paperwork and both she and Steve made themselves available at all hours to help until the problem was finally resolved. I have worked with many realtors over the years, but buying a home through Steve and Julie was by far the best experience I have ever had with any realtor. With so many realtors out there, it's hard to make a decision - and it seems that everyone has a friend that is a realtor these days. But, if you want a professional realtor that has the experience and expertise on getting you the absolute best deal and can handle issues that are bound to arise, Steve Ferreira is your go to guy. I can't recommend him and his team highly enough” Read More ▾
‟Steve sold us our first house 10 years ago, and Johnny just helped us sell it a decade late for a significant profit- from across the country, no less. Both are consummate professionals who know this business back-to-front. Our every question was answered immediately, and every unexpected situation handled quickly and smoothly. This was an absolute … ly pain-free process; we would not dream of looking anywhere else for our real estate needs. Thanks guys” Read More ▾
‟It was such a joy to have the Ferreiras assist us with the purchase of our first home. We have been contemplating a home purchase for years and it has always felt daunting. From the first moments they were working with us on the process through the end it felt so easy and comfortable. We felt like our transaction would be fully ethical on both side … s as well as the best possible deal for us as clients. It was so comforting to know that both the seller and ourselves would enjoy the process. We felt like we knew all the ins and outs of what was happening and why and were able to enjoy dreaming about our future home. Now that we have been living in the home for a few months we only think of how incredible the next years will be there together! Thank you SO MUCH for all your hardwork and diligence!

‟The realty service provided by The Ferreira Group in the recent sale of my Scripps Ranch Townhome was simply amazing. From the way we discussed and decided upon the appropriate listing price all the way through to negotiations and final closing with the buyer and his team - Steve, Johnny and Julie were on top of things every step of the way. Upon r … eceiving a qualifying offer from the first interested party, the Team laid out an estimate of the closing schedule they anticipated - and they nailed it down to the final escrow closing date. This is the second time I've worked with The Ferreira Group, I would not hesitate to use them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional, efficient, comfortable and personal real estate buying or selling experience. They're the best around! Joseph Ramo” Read More ▾

They have your families needs in mind, and will steer you in the right direction and tell you when to walk away as well. Thank you for all the great work!
