Good Words from Clients – Bevins Group


​Trudy Cohen

“I didn’t know Justin prior to my home search adventure. I met him while touring a home that he had listed that I was interested in. As we spoke, I immediately picked up on his professionalism and easy demeanor. I’d worked with another real estate agent who was unresponsive and so after having met Justin, I decided I would try working with him. From the start, his professionalism and courtesy were obvious. He knew that I had very particular tastes, and a limited budget which would make my home search a bit of a challenge. He was patient beyond words taking me all over the area to look at homes for several days. Beyond this, however, he also carefully guided me through the mortgage loan process. I had some challenges with my first lender, but Justin stuck by me and when I switched lenders, Justin helped me understand the process, all the forms involved, and what needed to happen to close the transaction. He worked closely with both mortgage lenders to make sure we stayed on schedule (as much as possible) and that the process moved forward. Justin also worked with the buyers on my behalf. I didn’t want to have to deal with them directly on a few issues that were somewhat tense. I told Justin I needed him to be my voice and he did a fantastic job telling me only what I needed to know without having to go into detail where I didn’t want it. He negotiated on my behalf and kept my best interests at heart. I can’t recommend Justin highly enough. He is a true real estate professional who’s experience shines through in everything he does. You simply cannot go wrong if you chose to retain him as your realtor. I know, if I ever chose to sell my house, he will be the first person I call.”

“Justin Bevins helped me with a very difficult short sale in Wildomar. His patience and perseverance was what finally pushed the sale through with the 6th buyer! He is a great communicator, honest and knowledgeable, and is a genuinely nice person. He did a great job for me and I would highly recommend him. I am so thankful that the short sale went through and that Justin was on my side every step of the way.”

​Taylor Loop

“Most real estate agents I deal with tend to be panicky and not understand that things happen but Justin’s very even keel. And you know, when in the process of a mortgage transaction sometimes things happen that cause problems or cause delays, you know just not always like you have planned it and Justin doesn’t ever seem to panic. He always seems cool, calm and collected. He seems actually to become friends with his clients not just use them as a transaction or the next commission. Just seems to actually become friends and most of his clients that I work with him continue to stay in contact with him and that seems to be pretty unique.”

“Justin, we just wanted to thank you again for all your help and patience in finding us our new home.  Thanks for sticking with us when things didn’t look good , and for all the Sundays you gave up for us.  We have been working non-stop for 2 weeks now and we will be moving in this weekend.  We are so looking forward to relaxing in our new home.  Thank you, Tim & Layne”The Jove Family​

“If you’re looking for a realtor, look no further, Justin Bevins is YOUR GUY! Very friendly, very laid back and his willingness to put you in a home that fits your needs is SECOND TO NONE! He would show my wife a home in the morning and then take us to the same house again in the evening when I got off work just so I could see it. Justin had no problems in doing so. We were also able to look at houses on the fly, all he would do is make a call and we were inside within minutes! In regards to paperwork, he would be right there to guide you through and answer any questions you may have. Justin and his team would also make sure all deadlines were met on time. Justin Bevins and his team has to be one of the best realtors in the business, HANDS DOWN!”

​Dave & Tracy​

“We 100% recommend Justin Bevins. We are extremely happy with the outstanding service Justin provided us the entire process of selling our home. We moved out of California, while our home was on market. To say Justin went the extra mile, wouldn’t be enough THANKS and PRAISE, for EVERYTHING Justin did for us.”

​“Justin Bevins stuck by my side through a very stressful time in my life and a very difficult short sale that took almost a year to close. As a service member, I was left with no sensible financial options when facing long term relocation overseas. The housing bubble and resultant mortgage crisis did not spare those who were trying to do the right thing despite grossly upside-down mortgages in California. Needless to say, the American dream could no longer be for my family and me. Justin realized my unique situation and even though we both knew it would be tough times ahead and countless hours expended, he wholeheartedly offered to help a family facing more than just financial hardship. He understood and possessed the basic human qualities that allowed him to empathize with my moral dilemma. Throughout the following months, Justin went head-to-head with very deceptive and uncooperative banking agents. He never gave up, even when I was ready to throw in the towel and accept unreasonable losses for years to come. Justin was more than my realtor; he became my friend. I would recommend Justin to anyone who needs an honest, hard-working real estate agent who will never quit on you.”

Jim Sides​

“I actually thought we got outstanding results. He priced the property effectively. He was very proactive, very responsive. It’s interesting because we interviewed three different brokers. When we thought about putting the property on the market, he actually said, “I think we can get a higher price for this property,” and he actually delivered on that, and we sold in a relatively short period of time. From my standpoint, I’m extremely satisfied. He actually set really high expectations for himself and told us all the things he was going to do. The impressive part is actually he delivered on everything he said he was going to do. From the interesting marketing ideas, and getting the property out on the market and used social media, other activities and different things he was going to do with  other brokers, etcetera. Everything he said he was going to do, which was kinda a lot, he did it, which was a lot. I thought, if he does half of everything he’s going to do, that’s great,” and he actually delivered a 100% on it.”

​Eric & Lisa West​

“Here’s how much we appreciate Jusin’s help selling our home. This is the 3rd review I’m attempting to write right now. The first one Zillow rejected saying I was an agent. The second one it decided to click off to another screen just as I finished. So while I find I hate Zillow right now, I like Justin enough to write this review. He really helped us a lot to sell our home in California. We have two homes. The one we live in is in Washington State. So we needed a good agent down in California because we wouldn’t be available in person. Hard to trust someone to take care of everything, but Justin did that. He came highly recommended from my parents and I trust their counsel, and they were right! At the same time, we tried to sell our home here in Washington. We went through 2 different agents and companies and never had an offer in six month. We were even told here in Washington the market is so hot, we’d probably get offers higher than what we were asking. Even after lowering our price here in Washington, we still didn’t get any offers and finally decided to just take it off the market. But with Justin we got what we wanted for our home. Not just that, but we never felt any pressure to sell for less. Justin even helped clean up our home after the renters moved out and he helped to paint our garage! Talk about going above and beyond. The reason I mention the two experiences is the contrast. In my life, Justin is the 6th agent I’ve dealt with and before working with him, I’d have told you all agents are the same. Six of one, half a dozen of the other. Not so. Justin is heads and tails above the others we’ve worked with. Believe me, if you want a good agent to sell your home at a solid price, you want Justin. Do yourself a favor and hire him.”

​The Watson Family​

“Justin has been absolutely great to work with. He has helped us both sell a home and find and purchase a new home. What I think we like the most about Justin was his flexibility to fit into our schedule. His upfront honesty and to the point professionalism was something to behold. Justin was a great fit for us. His willingness to go the extra mile to get things done put our minds at ease in both selling our old home and finding a new one. He went out of his way to get us into some far out places, but in the end it was his local knowledge that found us the house we closed on recently. We can not say enough good things about Justin and the way he conducted himself when dealing with our family.”

​Kandys Pohlschneider​

“Justin is amazing!! He helped us every step of the way and was very informative. We are first time home buyers and my husband was deployed overseas during the process and he accomodated our every need. We are so thankful to have found Justin and highly recommend him!”

​Steven Waters​

“I live out of state and was forced to sell my mothers home due to an illness requiring her to move into an assisted living facility. I searched the internet for a local realtor. Justin’s profile stood out because of the positive reviews, recent sales and proximity to my mothers home. I picked two additional realtors and asked for their market analysis for comparison. Justin’s was the first to be returned and the analysis was well thought out reflecting a clear understanding of the market area he serves. We made an appointment to meet and walk through the house. He was very thorough yet conservative in his suggestions for any repairs, upgrades or additions needed to maximize the selling price of the home. Since my time was limited and focused on my mothers recovery. Justin directed all of the activities of the general contractor we hired to bring the home to market condition, checking in frequently with updates, suggestions or for my approval for any surprises that we found along the way. We listed the house and received 4 offer’s in less than one weeks time. Justin mediated the negotiations with considerable skill resulting in a successful sale for more than the asking price. Justin exceeded my expectations. He went above and beyond what I would normally expect from a realtor knowing that I had to limit my time in the area. I would recommend Justin, based upon his knowledge, professionalism and excellent customer service to any and all friends and family members.”

​The Arroyo Family​

“Justin was referred to me by family members that were quite happy with his services. As most of the people out there, I was very skeptical especially when it comes to real estate agents. Justin definitely changed my way of thinking and I was glad that he was recommended to me. I can write pages and pages of our great experience working with Justin selling our house and buying our existing one. On the professional side, I’ll say that his knowledge of the business is way above any other real estate agent. He guided us through the whole selling process and helped us to sell our house way above what we expected. He was on time for all appointments and kept us informed of the progress via telephone calls, text messages and e-mail. He always answered all our questions and concerns. He is very diligent and professional and took in consideration the opinions and needs of my wife and teenage daughter when we were searching for the new house. On the human side, Justin treated us like family and made us feel very comfortable and always gave us his honest opinion helping us finding the correct home for the family after owning our previous one for more than 17 years. I was bragging to every one of my friend about my realtor. We developed a great friendship and will definitely recommend him to all my friends and relatives; he is the best.”

​David & Sandra Burchell​

“Justin Bevins sold our house in Wildomar, CA and it closed today (April 28, 2016). He was very professional and followed up with every Realtor who showed our house in a timely manner and relayed the feedback to us immediately. He kept us updated every step of the way and his knowledge of the industry was evident in the way that he was able to answer all of our many questions, without hesitation. We are moving to Nevada and he even found us a furnished, short term lease condo, whilst our new house is being built. He also negotiated a lower rent for us! We can highly recommend him to sell your house! Justin provided a service second to none. His communication and attention to detail was way beyond excellent. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone looking for a reliable and trustworthy realtor! Thank you so much Justin for your help!”

​Chris & Brian Tabery​

“Justin was great to work with . His recommendation for price was spot on. The transaction went smooth and he always responded to my questions immediately. He has Excellent knowledge of canyon lake and the surrounding area. His level headed approach to things that came up reassured everyone involved with the sale. We highly recommend him to anyone.”

​Hyacinth Nelson​

“I was introduced to Justin In August 2015 when he started the process of helping my daughter to find a house. Justin was there to encourage my daughter through this experience which could be tedious in light of the fact that it was both of our first time buying a house. In my opinion he went over and beyond to make this a rewarding experience and was a source of encouragement even when we came upon hitches along the way. He stuck with us to the very end and I am extremely grateful. I would not hesitate to use Justin’s services again and would certainly recommend him to anyone who is seeking to buy a house in Southern California.”

​Jerry & Cookie Oein​

“We decided to put our home on the market and purchase another home this summer and thanks to Justin’s efficiency our home was sold in three weeks. His advertising was as professional as they come with a description and photographs that truly helped envision the home’s best features. Justin was also sure to reach as many markets as possible. He kept close tabs on all realtors who showed the house and followed up with each one, and in turn relayed the information to us. This helped us to know that we were on track with the way we were staging the home for a quick and profitable sale. When we received multiple offers he had valuable advice only an experienced realtor with a strong interest in what was best for his clients could have. The paperwork was stress free thanks to Justin. He walked through each step and kept the paperwork flowing in the fastest possible manner. Through it all he was pleasant and never made us feel we were asking unnecessary questions. Purchasing our new home was just as simple. Justin knew what we were looking for and worked hard to help us find it. Once we found the perfect home his expertise and efficiency made it possible for us to close a deal before anyone else could even put in an offer. Justin was able to successfully communicate between the sellers and us through several minor “kinks”. Justin always answered our texts and calls within hours, if not minutes. He informed us of every step along the way and took care of most of the tedious paperwork which was so daunting to us. Even though the sale closed over 2 months ago Justin is still checking in to be sure all is good and suggesting contractors for the work we want done to personalize our home. Justin Bevins is a top-notch realtor whom you would be fortunate to have on your team”

​Vic & Lynn Allen​

“My husband and I would like to take this time to thank you so much for the very enjoyable and smooth transaction we had while buying our home in Canyon Lake.  All the time you spent showing us homes,taking our phone calls and representing us and looking out for our best interest was something we will never forget. Having the both of you made it so nice because one of you was always available for whatever we needed.  We can’t wait to recommend the two of you to any of our friends looking for a new home.  Thanks Again, Vic & Lynn Allen”

​Cody Burt​

“Justin was really great help in getting my new Canyon Lake home. I gave Justin my wants and needs, told him my price range, and my availability(I was living in OC at the time) and Justin was in constant contact, lined up a bunch of houses to see on my one day off and I found my house that day. Even through the boring purchase process, Justin handled every thing, even found me Momentum Mortgage(who i also recommend) while keeping me up to date and I was in my new house in like 2 weeks. Everyone told me what a pain it would be but, because of Justin, it was easier to buy my house than most big purchases of my life.”

​Mary & Bruce​

“I can’t imagine how any agent could have been better than Justin. He is smart, pleasant, efficient, thorough, and most importantly honest. He did everything possible to make things easy for us. You could always count on him for a quick response to any question, by every method. He even answers the phone! From start to finish, he was always there to help and offer expert guidance that made sense. We recommend Justin without any reservations.”

​Donna Kelly​

“Justin is the best! He has the best interest in his clients.He listens to your wants and delivers. He was always available to show homes or questions. I would strongly recommend Justin. …he truly is the best.”

​Renee Herrera – Audio Testimonial​

“He is wonderful, he went beyond! He helped us every step of the way and with a lot of things that we didn’t know. There was not a time when we called, texted or asked questions where he did not answer us immediately. He always tried to find every solution for us and get us the best results. We love our home! We ended up getting a good lender, so he went beyond. We have no complaints, we would defiantly use him again and we would defiantly refer him. We think he is awesome!”

​Mike and Carole Koss​

“Justin is wonderful to work with. He is very knowledgeable and patient. He is truly concerned with finding you the house that fits your needs and he goes above and beyond both before and after the purchase. He also does a great job selling a house for you. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home.”

​Dianne & Steve Johnso]

“We were very fortunate to have Justin assist us in our home search and recent purchase. We started our search in Sept. 2014 and eventually found the best home for us after an extensive (58+) showings and closed Aug., 2015. He was very professional, patient, personable, and knowledgeable on the communities and process involved in a home purchase in our area of relocation. Whenever we had questions or concerns with our potential purchase and also the sale of our home, Justin was very responsive in timeliness and knowledge. We highly recommend Justin to anyone who is buying or selling their home. Dianne and Steve Johnson”

​Tim & Jan Michelson​

“Look no further, I call this guy the “Super Agent”. Here’s why. 1) He just sold our mothers home in Tustin, CA. (she had passed away) Out of the 5 children, 3 of us have been licensed real estate agents. For different reasons, none of us wanted to deal with this. Justin handled everything perfectly, like I knew he would. All of the brothers and sisters were very happy with everything. The term “fiduciary relationship” is still alive! 2) He sold our home in Canyon Lake, CA in 2006 when the market was slipping down. Buyers were falling out of escrow, but Justin just kept at it. 3) We were helping family members buy a home in Hemet, CA in 2008. There were plenty of foreclosures that Justin showed us. We ended up buying a nice 2 story in a nice neighborhood for $119k. Wells Fargo was holding $364k in loans!”

​Bryan Eddy​

“I have nothing but good things to say about Justin Bevins. He is courteous, responsive and very professional. I work in LA so my schedule hindered my home search. Justin was available to show me properties on my schedule, not his. This took a lot of the stress out of the process. Once I had an accepted offer, Justin made sure everything was taken care of. Justin is a great asset to have on your team when buying a home.”

​Jody Weiss

“We sold the house and we had a full price offer within twelve hours of listing.  When we were getting the house ready Justin actually came over and took care of my dog during showings.  He was awesome!”

​Greg Murphy​

“Justin has helped me buy and sell 3 homes. In all 6 transactions, he has been diligent in the follow up and has gone above and beyond the regular expectations of a great real estate agent. I would recommend him to any family member or friend without hesitation.”

​Dianne Johnson​

“We spent a lot of time with him viewing many homes. We ended up with the home that was the best fit for us so we are very satisfied with the home that we purchased through Justin. He was always level-headed, he didn’t sway us one way or the other, and he was a conduit for showings. He was neutral but very good. Everything worked out really well!”

​Jerry and Marilyn Taylor​

“Absolutely the best. Both as an agent and person, Justin is such a pleasure. He went way above and beyond what an agent normally would do, and we are very grateful. He sold our house while we were living overseas…certainly far from an easy task. Thank you so much, Justin!”

​Sharon Clark​

“Justin worked with my mother & I to sell her home. We lived in another state and needed to sell the home quickly. Justin walked us through everything to get the house listed  and ensured we felt the house was selling at the correct price range. Not only did we get 12 offers the first day it was listed,  most were above asking price. We sold the home within a week and escrow closed in 15 days.  Equally as important as selling the house, Justin helped keep us at ease with the process and kept our best interests a priority. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone selling or buying a home to reach out to Justin.  Thank you again Justin for all your help!”

​The Speizer Family​

“Bevins and Associates is an outstanding real-estate business with their number 1 priority being client satisfaction. This real estate agency prides itself on finding just the right home for its clients.  From the Summer of 2009 through the Spring of 2010, Justin Bevins worked tirelessly to help us find the best home for our family.  We visited nearly 100 properties throughout Orange County, in attempt to find a house that met both most of our needs. Justin’s knowledge of the local real estate markets and home craftsmanship helped us navigate options such as REOs and short sales, in addition to standard equity sales. In the end, we were able to find a home that met all of our needs – location, property size and condition, great neighborhood, schools, etc. ­– in one of the most competitive housing markets. Justin’s support before, during and after escrow, has exceeded our expectations. We could not have done it without him.  Justin Bevins is an honest, reliable and extremely knowledgeable business partner for anyone who is exploring the real-estate market in Southern California.”

​Ron & Donelle Doan​

“Justin Bevins and Maria Suttle of Prudential Real Estate Canyon Lake were our real estate agents for buying and selling our homes in Canyon Lake. The experience we had with them surpassed any other agents we have dealt with in the past. Any concern or question was immediately handled. We never had to call back to remind them.  From the time we called their office, we knew we were dealing with the best team in Canyon Lake. Justin made every effort to stay within our parameters regarding price and location. He put together a profile for selling and buying homes in Canyon Lake, which was very helpful to make a reasonable offer and market our home. Justin had open houses that he provided a barbeque lunch, including drinks. We have never seen this marketing tool used before. He provided suggestions for mortgage brokers that would be competitive. Their patience and understanding was always appreciated during a very hectic time when involved with the sale and purchase of a home.  This is more than a job for them, as they make friends and those friends tell others about the fantastic marketing and service that is provided.   In an environment that is very competitive, we would definitely call them if we decide to sell again and we will recommend this realty firm and team.  Good Luck and God Bless.  Ronald Doan and Donelle Doan”

​Erica De Los Reyes​

“Justin Bevins is just good at what he does. He is an excellent agent/broker and he’s thorough. He is so wonderful with his customer service skills and I think that is a huge plus in this industry. He is just number one, just number one. He communicates with his clients so thoroughly, hits them up with figures at the beginning of the transaction so they know what to expect. His clients are never surprised. He does nothing but communicate with his clients. Never once, do I feel like I am obligated to discuss anything with regards to a transaction or feel like I have to. He is an excellent communicator with all of his clients . I never once have I never heard one complaint. They are all extremely happy when he is representing them.”

​Don & Sharon Hyrkas​

“We have always been very happy working with Justin. He always comes through with whatever he tells you. He does fulfill whatever obligation he has made, we’re very happy to be acquainted with him and be recipients of his wonderful service that he provides.He went way above the call of duty when he was working with some rental property that we had, making sure that it was ready that everything was in place. He worked with us during that time since we’re out of state. He made sure that everything was taken care of. He really is a wonderful person to work with.”

​Nate & Michelle​

“I actually thought we got outstanding results. He priced the property effectively. He was very proactive, very responsive. It’s interesting because we interviewed three different brokers.

I thought, if he does half of everything he’s going to do, that’s great,” and he actually delivered a 100% on it.”

​Steven Williams​

“The results were good. He listed a property for me and I was really happy with separates and the follow through. We ended up having to relist the home twice because the first buyers fell out of escrow and didn’t close, so potentially he had to do twice as much work to close the transaction one time. He had to work twice as hard for just one commission check!”

​Charles Hebert​

“We got great results! I was really pleased! We wanted to sell quickly and as is and Justin determined a great marketable price. We received multiple offers at or above asking price within a week and we selected an offer within the week!”
