I pride myself on standing out from many agents in my attention to detail and follow up. Starting a new chapter in one’s busy life can be a truly stressful experience and should be made as easy as possible by a professional and empathetic Realtor. If you need questions answered quickly and correctly, or, more importantly, if you don’t even know the questions to ask, that’s why you need a real pro. If I don’t know the answers, I have a team behind me at Deasy Penner Podley to aid me.

I am honored to have been a top producer within DPPRE in the past years and hope I can bring all I have learned to a transaction we might create together in the future.

My background in the garment industry, for many years, brought me the business and negotiation abilities so needed in Real Estate. Everything is a negotiation, and an agent needs that skill in order to put together the best offer or acceptance of one. If you are listing your house, you are selling a product, and if I do not know the product and its attributes as well as its weaknesses, I cannot perform in the utmost capacity. If I am helping you procure a property, the same holds true.

I’m a Realtor specializing in the San Gabriel Valley and working under the Deasy Penner Podley umbrella which is, arguably, one of the most reputable brokers in this and the Westside Los Angeles area. I have also had the privilege of living in the Pasadena and Altadena area for over 30 years and raising my daughter here as well.

This is a changing community which offers great opportunities to sellers and buyers. So many families and singles are moving into this area from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles in order to enjoy a quieter and less congested  area. And yet, due to its proximity to Downtown L.A., Silverlake, Los Feliz, Burbank and more, it is still accessible.

Please feel free to contact me for any needs now or in the future.

Joan will be the only person I will go to for my real estate needs. Whether buying or selling, she is the very best partner you could ask for!” ~ Karen Kiefaber | Seller | Altadena
“My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Joan Augustiny for the past 18 months. Throughout this time, Joan has been thorough and professional. We have appreciated her constant calmness, solid good work, and dedication. Joan’s understanding and interest in our very specific needs has been faultless in the process of finding a suitable property. Joan’s knowledge and insights in to the different neighborhoods has been insightful and honest, and being relatively new to L.A., this has been of enormous help. As we continued our search, we knew we had found the right partner in Joan who intuitively understood our needs. We have no hesitations in recommending Joan to any of our friends and colleagues who, like ourselves, need honest and experienced advice.” ~ Will Bernard | Buyer | Altadena
“Joan Augustiny was the best realtor my family and I could have hoped for! She understood our wants, needs and financial limitations and managed to find us the house of our dreams (in a very competitive market at that). It was not an easy transaction. There were issues before, during and after escrow, but Joan remained calm and worked with us and the other realtor to see the deal through, maintaining a firm sense of integrity and transparency throughout. She was also a lot of fun to work with (!) making what can be a very stressful process much more enjoyable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a new home.” ~ Elizabeth Dorosin | Buyer & Seller | South Pasadena
“I recently purchased a condo in Pasadena, and I can definitely say that Joan Augustiny facilitated the whole buying process efficiently from start to finish. I couldn’t have done it without Joan. Joan stuck with me all throughout the search process. She devoted a great amount of her time to help me find the right place at the right price. She was very up-to-date on the available listing in my price range and was very attentive to the requirements I was looking for in a condo. She was always responsive to my phone calls and emails. Joan is also very knowledgeable and gave me practical and professional advice, especially during the negotiating process, when I needed it most. I had a great experience with Joan and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy a home in Pasadena!” ~ Norma Alonso | Buyer | Pasadena
“I am writing to say that I would wholeheartedly recommend Joan Augustiny as an excellent agent. I recently worked with Joan on a difficult real estate purchase: difficult, because the seller wanted to change the terms of the sale while it was in progress. By that, I mean, I had made an all cash full price offer on a property which is very specific to my needs. Even though it was an excellent offer, the seller countered twice asking for more money, as much as $100,000 over asking price on a property with no other offers. I was absolutely flabbergasted by this action. But because the property suited my very specific needs, I agreed to split the difference. This was turned down by the seller, and the offer died. A few weeks later, the seller wanted to reinstate the offer, and I purchased the property. During this whole saga, Joan displayed confidence, patience, good counsel, and really worked hard to make this deal work. If there was something she didn’t know, she didn’t hesitate to say so with the proviso that she would find the answer, which she did quickly. This displays honesty and integrity. She was always available. This displays responsibility. She takes great pride in her work which she demonstrates by not allowing even the smallest detail to go unnoticed or unresolved. If honesty, integrity, responsibility and pride in one’s work are qualities you value, then Joan would be a wonderful agent for your real estate transaction.” ~ Paulette Fiorina | Buyer | South Pasadena
“We had the pleasure of working Joan Augustiny on several occasions and in the eventual purchase of our new home. As out-of-state transplants to California, Joan has been an incredible resource for us as we learn the California and local market. I first met Joan when looking at a rental home three years ago. She was with another client and we were working with someone else. I overheard her and her client a bit and was so impressed by the level of work she was doing to help her client. When my mother moved to Pasadena a year later, Joan was the first person I called to help my mother find an apartment. I can’t say enough about Joan’s patience, diligence, and willingness to work with her clients. Joan has worked with my family for two years as we evaluated options, made offers, changed our minds, and worked through potential deals. Most recently, Joan helped us on the purchase of our new home. We love our new home and so appreciate the work that went into helping us be homeowners in California.” ~ Michele Mapp | Buyer | Altadena
“I had the pleasant opportunity to have Joan Augustiny sell my property. She is a dedicated Realtor with the integrity one would hope for. And in helping me, she often went above and beyond what as expected. I was completely satisfied with our transaction and highly recommend her.” ~ Larry McDonal | Seller | Altadena
