Our Testimonials

Highly recommend Joseph & his group. We bought a home in Encinitas while we were still living in LA. He was instrumental in getting us into our new home quickly and helping us out with every little detail. He is very thorough, dependable, genuine & kind. Communication was the key factor in why we decided to go with Joseph as our Realtor. He always responds in a timely matter. We found our realtor for life!

I have worked with Joseph for nearly four years, both with him doing property management as well as sales of property. I have always felt I could rely on his judgement and abilities. I've used a few property managers over the years and far and away Joseph has been the best one that I've worked with. He has done an outstanding job in dealing with tenants to both meet their expectations and not allow them to become unreasonable.

Recently, he helped me in the sale of a condo that included getting renovation work done before the sale. Joseph listened to what I wanted to have done and provided useful advice and coordination of the tasks. We had a successful sale that came in at full asking price and within only a few days of listing. I could not have possibly done that without Joseph's efforts. He went beyond what most agents and managers would be willing to do.

He continues to manage some of my other properties and I will be using him again for future sales. He is someone I can count on and that is hard to find.

My husband and I highly recommend Joseph, he is honest, and straight forward. He won't let you move into a place that is in a bad location. So thankful for that. He isn't just some realtor trying to get a sale. He honestly cares about where his clients are going to live and for that we are so grateful.
We just bought a condominium in Vista, and we absolutely love it. It's in the exact location that we had wanted from the beginning. Joseph is always working hard to make sure you get exactly what you want. When we made an offer on the condo, we were not sure what was going to happen. (We had made an offer on two other houses before this one and both turned down or got better offers.) Well they excepted and we couldn't have been more thrilled. Joseph was in constant contact to make sure that everything was going smoothly and that we were doing everything we needed to do. His assistant Tracey was extremely helpful as well. Answered my calls late at night because I had a question. The process went so smoothly, I kept thinking we had to do something else. We closed less then a month later and were just in awe at how well it went. We will recommend Joseph to everyone who is interested in buying.
Thank you so very much for all your help Joseph Arendsen & group.

Joseph had sold my husbands condo a few years ago, so when it was time to buy our first home we knew we wanted Joseph as our Realtor. At first we just wanted to see what was out there and Joseph right away started sending us listings. After the first 2 weeks of looking Joseph had a good understanding of what we wanted. He made us feel totally comfortable and when we sent a few listings we wanted to see he quickly made appointments to get us in. By the third week Joseph found our home! We put in an offer and 30 days later we got the keys. I highly recommend Joseph if you are looking for someone who will get the job done right!

We recently purchased our first home in Oceanside. Mr. Arendsen made the process a wonderful experience. If we had any questions or concerns, he responded right away with answers or updates. He had a wide range of homes to view and made sure we viewed all options of what was available, where we wanted to live. We knew what we wanted and he delivered it. I'm from Oceanside and was very impressed with his knowledge of the schools, neighborhoods and local places. Our purchase was negotiated with everything we wanted and in a timely manner. His knowledge and expertise are the best and we highly recommend him.

-Jenelle L.

Joseph was instrumental in finding me a property that fit specific requirements. He negotiated in my favor and wound up with a real gem below appraised value. He was attentive and definitely concerned about my interests. I highly recommend using him.

-John T.

We used Joseph Arendsen to help us locate a home. That turned out to be a great decision. Mr. Arendsen helped us to locate and buy the home, when the competition was stiff, and negotiated a good sales price. Throughout the process he was a strong advocate and we received many concessions from the seller that we did not expect. Mr. Arendsen was very knowledgeble and was able to recommend a good broker, inspectors, termite inspection, etc. We would not hesitate to use him again.

-Holly Hurd

I found Joseph through Yelp, and despite his excellent rating, I watched him for months with an eagle eye for signs that he was at the end of his rope with my demands or giving less than 100% towards my home search/negotiations/escrow. Well, his dedication never flagged, and he remained professional even when we (ok, just my husband) got grouchy.

Throughout, Joseph was honest about his knowledge of our targeted areas, never over-inflating his opinion, and his advice always came with the deference to our wishes (unless we were about to make a huge mistake!). He is familiar with some pretty diverse pockets of San Diego County, but really made it a point to understand our tastes and needs. He drove me to countless showings, always with an organized plan, and scoured the new listings for us though we did use his helpful on-line search site too. We were implementing a 1031 exchange, so he helped us with projected rental prices, and is following through with his offer to assist in finding renters and maintain the properties (he does some limited property management for his family's company).

I think one of Joseph's best qualities is that he loves what he does. Things that appear as huge roadblocks to the client are enticing challenges for him. Buying or selling, I feel confident in recommending Joseph Arendsen as a person on whom you can rely.

We have just recently purchased a home in Oceanside, Ca.. Not really knowing the area for real estate, I went online to check properties out. I wanted to look at Oceanside down to Encinitas. The web page popped up coastal communities and realtors. Not knowing anyone in the area for help,I really wanted to find someone who was very familiar with the areas of interest for my family and myself.
I wanted a safe and nice area to live and have my daughter grow up with nice school districts also.
After putting some of my interests down on the web page , I received an email back from an individual realtor. His name was Joseph Arendsen. I had no ideal what this man could do for us or how long he had been in the realty business.
I emailed him back and then went on line to look up his bio. I was pleasantly surprised that he is as knowledgeable has he came across, especially for someone moving to an unknown area of interest. He grew up in the Oceanside area and was very familiar with the nice and the not so pleasing areas of Oceanside. Which by the way, I must also say kudos to the city of Oceanside for stepping up to the plate and transforming Oceanside making this an inviting place to live. Which it was not even a thought over ten years ago for me.
Back to Joseph. The man spent the time with me even after finding out I was not going to be an easy sale. I had a criteria that was not an easy one to fulfill. After a couple visits, Joseph and I signed an agreement and from that point, the hunt was on. after the first three to four homes we looked at Joseph had a good feel for what and where I would even consider looking at to live.
After ten homes of interest, Joseph scored by taking us by this one place that he didn't even think would be our definitive pick.
We met him there. My family and I right off the bat were pleased at what we saw so far. Joseph still insisted we look at a couple more. We went with him knowing we wanted what we just saw . Joseph would have come up with something over the top to top this one. Joseph got on the phone right away to call the selling agent to find the specifics on this property. I kept hounding him to please get in direct touch with the selling agent to see if we could put a bid in.
He took us to see the others but my interest was still on the one property. Finally that day Joseph let us know he had made contact and that wheels for this property could be in motion. he kept in continuous contact with us and always explained the good with the possible not so good. He was truly making an effort to get us what we wanted.
The MAN put in some serious efforts to pull the strings I was demanding for this deal. needless to say we are in our home of chose and ''Thanks to Joseph'' with the knowledge he has of the area and his constant contact and efforts and team of people he uses it was made possible!!!! My family and I thank you Joseph and we would refer you to our friends and family and anyone who might be thinking of buying in this area. ( I am still customizing the home so it is the way we want it inside and out but that is minimal.) = ))

Joseph with the Arendsend Group was the Agent that helped us to buy our first home and we could not have been happier with the experience. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the industry. He was able to take the time to hear what our wants and needs were as well as give us insight on things that could be beneficial to us in the long run. He found us the perfect home for our lifestyle and budget, as well as a great investment for our future.

He made the process very easy and stress free cooridinating the loan as well as the notary. I was most inpressed with how he made himself available whenever we had questions (as I am the type to ask ALOT of questions). The seller of our home wanted to close very quickly and Joseph made it happen working hard to get all of our ducks in a row so that escow would be easy and quick.

I have nothing but good things to say about purchasing my first house. I expected it to be very difficult being a first time buyer, but I couldn't believe how easy it was. Thanks to our Agent.

Joseph also does Property Management, so when the time comes to use the purchase of our home as an income property...there is no one else I would trust to help us put that together.

Great experience! Thank you Joseph and the Arendsen Group!

-Kara A.

Thank you Arendsen Group for all of your help! Joseph and his amazing team helped us prepare and sell our house in Oceanside and also advised us while we worked with our buyers agent to buy another home out of state! We had a couple of small bumps in the road but they were able to guide us through and sell our home for more money than we initially expected to!!! Thank you all for your hard work and professionalism!

Joseph and his team are amazing and will help you find your perfect home in San Diego. Cannot recommend him enough! He genuinely cares about his clients, knows the San Diego real estate market's ins-and-outs, and he dives in to get the job done and to make sure everyone is smiling at the end of the deal!

Joseph was an Amazing real estate agent and my husband and I had a positive experience . We we're in a time crunch for our move in date he was able to meet the deadline. He's organized and is always on the ball . Also, he was able to share his background experience with flipping houses. I found this most valuable when walking through a house and getting ideas from him and possible costs of projects . This is the first of hopefully many homes we purchase in the area and we would utilize him again .

I can't fit all I have to say about our experience working with Joseph on here, so I'll keep it short and simple. My Girlfriend and I had been wanting to buy a home for a while and we finally had that opportunity this month. He was absolutely the coolest and most professional agent I have ever talked to. He was patient, kind, understanding and made us feel comfortable throughout our whole adventure. Because of this, my girlfriend and I closed on our very first home on February 8th 2016. I highly recommend his services to you, your friends and your family members. I will from this point forward continue to use him for future real estate transactions. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did for us.


My partner and I just recently purchased a home in Vista with the help of Joseph and team. As first time home buyers it can be quite stressful as there are many unknown factors and lots of questions to be answered. Joseph was there to answer all of our questions every step of the way. He laid everything out for us step by step so we knew what to expect. The entire process went very smooth and we closed within the timeline he set for us. He stayed on top of everything and made the process seamless for us. As first time buyers we would like to see our investment grow into something bigger and better so our relationship with the Arendsen Group has just begun. We look forward to working with Joseph and team for many years to come. I highly recommend the Arendsen Group to anyone looking to purchase real estate in San Diego County.
