"My wife and I worked with Josh for a few months looking for property in the Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, Soquel, and Aptos area. My wife, who is currently a realtor for Shea Homes, and myself, a former realtor, are highly critical of receiving nothing short of what we deliver in CustomerService. In this day it appears many businesses fall short of providing ahigh level of Customer Service. Josh is not only highly passionate about his profession, but he is far beyond his years not only as a realtor but as a person and professional as well. He showed us he is extremely sensitive to our needs and acutely aware of our individual desires as well. I must mention, He listened to us! Josh asked excellent questions to find out how he could best assist us then he listened. ... To this end, when you do get to work with Josh, not only am I confident he will find just the place you are looking for but he will make the time enjoyable."

"To whom it may concern: 

I would like to highly recommend Joshua Bacorn. I had the pleasure of working with him this last year when I decided to move to a larger house. In this market we had short sell our house and Joshua worked diligently with the banks to make the transaction smooth. The process took less than two months and I was impressed with his negotiation skills. He was always available and worked with my schedule to show the house.

Thank you for all your hard work. I will use your services again in the future if I ever need to sell my house."

"My wife and I enlisted Keith's help to look for homes/condos to purchase in the Santa Cruz area. As first time home buyers, Keith was helpful showing us the ropes and answering all the questions we had about the process. Keith was super responsive, honest, and kept our goals/needs in mind with all his suggestions and recommendations. 

We would not hesitate to work with him again in the future!"

-Krystle H.

"Josh was extremely knowledgeable and was able to get us the house of our dreams! He came to us as a recommendation after many real estate agents never called us back. He was extremely fast at getting us any documents we wanted and went out of his way to get us in contact with people that had no impact on the sale or not. No question was too dumb! He changed our minds on the industry! Thank you so much Josh!"

-Melissa M.

"We recommend Joshua Bacorn and team to everyone.  One of the best! Got us into our dream home in the Santa Cruz mountains.  After 2 other realtors, we bumped into him at a open house... We got SUPER lucky..Joshua made our first buying experience magical.  He is truly amazing. And can't wait to do this again with him."

"My husband and I were looking for houses in the Santa Cruz Area and enlisted the help of The Bacorn Group to help us in our search. Keith was extremely knowledgeable about the local market and was readily available to answer any questions. He took the time to get to know us and make sure that he knew exactly what we were looking for. He is a consummate professional and I would not hesitate to work with him again. If you want a real estate agent that cares, this is the place to go.

Thanks Keith for everything!"

Being a first-time homebuyer, I didn't really know what to expect from the whole home-buying process, but I was really apprehensive about making such a big financial commitment.  Keith Trainor and the rest of the Bacorn Group really put me at ease and made the process a lot less intimidating.  It was unbelievable how smoothly everything went!  At the beginning, they set me up with a reasonable timeline for when certain steps would be completed, and they were always quick to communicate when the timeline needed to be adjusted.  I felt like I could call Keith whenever I needed to, and he was always very professional and patient with me--never the pushy salesman type.  Even when I had to spend two weeks out-of-town for work, we were still able to keep things moving with minimal effort on my end.  

In short, Keith Trainor and the Bacorn Group are helpful, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable.  I love my new condo, and I'd recommend them to anybody!

"I can't say enough about Josh and his team. Having gone through the buying and selling process with other realtors in the past, Josh was a breath of fresh air. With other realtors I felt  I wasn't getting the whole picture - that what they were showing me was what they wanted me to buy, rather than hearing my requests. The same was true with the paperwork - as if my questions were an annoyance to their timeline. After poor past experiences I was hesitant to hitch my wagon to a single realtor and interviewed/spoke with nearly 20 different individuals before choosing Josh.  

Friendly and honest from the start, Josh always followed up in a timely manner without being pushy and, most importantly, always took the time to answer my questions and explain, in depth, a process that can be overwhelming to those of us not accustom to throwing around a half million dollars or more. 

 Josh was patient too, showing more than 20 properties in person and continually going out of his way to meet my schedule. I've since recommended him to close friends and co-workers and all are extremely happy with his service. If you're looking for a realtor and you've read this far- call Josh and have him give you my number. I'll be happy to expand on this review over the phone. I could not be more happy with the service Josh provided- and continues to provide as we keep our eye on the market. He's a true professional, but more importantly, he's a good person."

"If you're hoping to work with competent, professional, knowledgeable and most importantly compassionate people to help you find and purchase your new home, then hope no more.  JOSH BACORN, KEITH TRAINOR and the entire team over at DAVID LYNG in Capitola is "The team" that you want to have on your side.  Not only are they fabulous people who legitimately care about helping families get into a home, but they are also well respected in their field and do whatever it takes to help streamline the home purchase process and reduce as much stress as they possibly can."

-Anita C.

"My fiancé and I started working with Josh after meeting him at one of his open houses. Josh's personality, knowledge, and the time he took to genuinely listen to our requests and wishes for a new home, made him a great fit. I will continue to work with Josh for any of my future real estate needs."

"My family of 6 had been praying to find a home we could afford for years. I started looking and we saw our dream home, Josh was the listing agent. He managed to get us into the house, sell ours, and allow us to get substantial money back to fix our dream home up. Josh has completed changed my opinion on realtors. He truly cares for us, wanting the best for our family. He called, texted, & meet with us consistently through the entire process. Josh is ambitious, works hard, kind, driven, thorough, & an expert realtor. We met him to buy a home but he will be our friend forever and will always be grateful to him."
