This year marked an unprecedented achievement for Joan Schultz, as her clients and peers once again voted her a recipient of San Diego Magazine’s “Five Star: Best in Client Satisfaction Real Estate Agents” award. Schultz is now a seven-time winner of the award, which is the result of a survey of more than 31,000 recent home buyers, subscribers and industry experts.
Agents were rated on their service, communication, integrity, negotiation, market knowledge, and closing preparation. “I am very proud of this because the standard of service that I provide is something I focus on every day,” noted Schultz, a San Diego resident since 1972. “It’s very gratifying to think that my clients voted for me.”
Schultz is a USD grad who has been working in real estate for the past 33 years. Having gotten her start in the industry when she was just a teenager helping her father and grandfather, who were land developers in New York, she possesses a thorough knowledge of building materials and techniques, marketing and land valuation.
To provide her sellers with maximum exposure and match her buyers with the information they need to achieve their goals, Schultz maintains an active membership in La Jolla’s renowned Top Producers Group. A Fine Homes Specialist, she is known for her negotiating skills, discretion and sense of accountability to her clients.
Community service has always been important to Schultz, a previous recipient of the La Jolla Real Estate Associations’ McNaught-Davis/Knox award as well as the La Jolla chapter of the Soroptimists’ Woman of Distinction award. She is an avid supporter of the Friends of the Israeli Defense Force (FIDF), and Jewish Family Services.
