We've worked with Johanna to buy 2 houses, now. She was incredibly helpful, calm and patient when we were first time buyers - there's so much we didn't know and she helped it all make sense! When it was time to move to our second home there was no question who we would work with! Again - so patient with us, helping us find the right home for us and connect with all the right people to help sell our home (it was on the market for less that 48 hours!). We cannot say enough about her expertise, her knowledge of St. Louis, her ability to make many moving parts seem manageable - amazing. Highly recommended!! - Nicole P.
I was a first time home buyer and Johanna did such a great job looking out for me as a client and gave me great advice about looking for homes as well as the loan process and home selection process. I thought she had great local knowledge of the neighborhoods I was looking at and really listened to what I wanted and delivered! Also, when I was interacting with the Circa Properties office, all of the staff was also very helpful and responsive. I would definitely recommend her and Circa Properties to any family/friends that were looking for a new home! - Megan S.
Johanna Dueren at Circa Properties was my buyer's agent during the adventure of purchasing my first home; I couldn't have asked for a better agent. Her knowledge of Saint Louis neighborhoods was invaluable: she greatly informed my thinking on where I wanted to live. She got to know my preferences well and was great at coming up with listings to visit. We finally found the perfect place and viewed it on the first day it was on the market. Even though we showed up pretty early in the morning, my offer was the third or fourth in line that day (the place was /that/ amazing). One memorable thing about that day is me telling Johanna how high I would go on price and her actually talking me down a bit to make sure that I wouldn't overpay (as opposed to just making the higher offer and pocketing the extra commission). She got me through the ensuing bidding war, with me coming out on top. She was helpful after the purchase with general advice for a first time homebuyer as well. Fast forward a few years to the point where I have to move to a new city for work. After renting my place out for a year, I decided to sell. Once again, I found myself in the capable hands of Johanna Dueren. She made the selling process so easy, especially considering that I was 600 miles away throughout the entire ordeal. Once we had a serious offer, she took care of all the things that I was worried would require me to fly back to Saint Louis like coordinating all of the minor repairs and touch-ups requested by the buyers. I was expecting the process to be harder; I was still waiting for the next thing to do when I noticed a big sum of cash landing in my bank account and a note from Johanna telling me, "That's it!" Whether you're buying or selling, Johanna is a fantastic agent that will work with you to get the job done. I can’t recommend her strongly enough! - Travis A.
Johanna and Circa Properties are a pleasure to work with! I’ve worked with her in 3 separate transactions (both buy and sell side) that went very smooth and couldn’t recommend her more highly. She is incredibly responsive and always there to gently guide you to the next step of the process. She seems more like your good, spunky, fun friend that you’ve known for years rather than your everyday realtor. Most importantly she gets the job done as efficiently and cleanly as you could possibly ask leaving you satisfied with the deal and price paid / price sold for your property. Johanna is the best! A+ recommended!! You will love working with her or anyone at Circa Properties! - Nicholas C.
Fantastic! Johanna has been my realtor from my first home (bought and sold through her) and my second home. In addition, my friends have bought a house with her, my sister and her husband and now my mother is looking for a home. All of us chose Johanna and Circa because of the way we were treated. I can't explain how incredibly personable, practical and at ease Johanna's approach is. We love doing business with her and feel that we can truly trust her! - Alex N.
She is so down to earth, helpful and understanding she is with you every step of the way - Kisha L.
I recently sold my condo in St Louis and Johanna Dueren was my agent. She did a phenomenal job! I was a bit nervous about listing my home in late December as it seemed to be a non-traditional time to sell a home, but Johanna gave me some great tips on how to move my place quickly. She also connected me with numerous awesome service professionals to help me finish my task list prior to my first showing. Johanna and her team were always professional, engaged in the process and kind --- a combination that is hard to find in real estate. I felt like my sale was the most important thing on their plate -- and that was appreciated. Ironically, shortly after selling my home, two friends contacted me as they were relocating to St Louis from out of state. I recommended Johanna to them and within two days of meeting her, they had an offer for new build construction accepted. They were so appreciative of my recommendation to work with Johanna and I know you would be too! Thank you, Jo!!! - Steven P.
Circa was wonderful to work with. Johanna is the absolute best! She is outgoing, open and always makes herself available. She is the perfect balance of professional and friendly. I was shopping for my first house and had very specific needs. I had no idea what I was supposed to do or look for; she guided me flawlessly. The closing team was efficient, friendly and informative. Thanks, Johanna! - Kit C.
If anyone needs a realtor in St Louis, I would highly recommend Johanna. Since Jo was born and raise in St Louis and has over 15 years of real estate experience, she knows St Louis like the back of her hand, and is very familiar with the market. Jo understood exactly what we were looking for in our next home. She is extremely patient and professional and I’m sure we weren’t always the easiest to deal with, especially with all my husbands questions. Even after we closed she was there to assist. Jo will definitely be who we call on when we look for our next home! -Rob R.
This is my second time working with her looking to buy a property. She is prompt, honest, and I truly believe is interested in looking for what fits my needs. She goes above and beyond to ensure a smooth transition into ownership. I would have no hesitation recommending her to anyone looking to buy a property. I assume she is equally excellent as a sellers agent as well. I plan to continue to use her in the future. - Ben K.
