Client ExperiencesBelow are some of my Client Testimonials
By: Frankie Mao
I wouldn't be sitting here in my first home, my pride and joy, had it not been for Jovy's support. Within a few weeks of searching and touring, Jovy had found my partner and me a home that we are now utterly in love with. As a first time buyer, the process from start to finish was not easy. The learning curve was steep, and there were so many complicated and important pieces moving simultaneously at once. I've learned that this was a normal (and in fact healthy) experience that was to be expected. Despite that, what working with Jovy showed me was that this necessarily challenging journey can be done with confidence and ease-of-mind if you're guided by a genuine, trustworthy, and principled professional. He was present for all my questions, concerns, aspirations, and hopes. Instinctively, he knew when to ground my expectations and when to get me excited; when to move fast and when to tread with more care. With Jovy, I got someone who was young and motivated but altogether knowledgeable and wise. I got to work with someone who was well-rounded and multi-skilled, and this feeling is only becoming increasingly clearer as I reflect back on my home-buying experience. I have no regrets asking Jovy to be my realtor: only comfort and reassurance that I picked the right person to guide me. Thank you, Jovy, for helping me realize my years-long goal of getting to where I am now. Years of penny pinching and frugality have come to fruition, and I now finally get to kick back, look at these walls, floors, windows, and rooms, and say with pride that this is all mine. Thank you for honouring my journey, and being there for me to push me past this milestone finish line.

It was a pleasure working with Jovy in helping me find the perfect home. This was my first real estate purchase and I was understandably nervous at the beginning. Jovy took the time to understand my needs and walked me through the entire process from start to finish. I especially appreciated that he valued my time and pre-screened all of the listings in advance. He is knowledgeable, hardworking and always responsive through email, text and even the occasional late night phone call. It took several months and plenty of self-doubt, but Jovy worked extremely hard to get me the best deal possible. He referred me to a great mortgage broker and lawyer to help me finalize and get me through escrow. Jovy is one of the best realtors in Vancouver and I will definitely hire him for my second home.

A friend of mine introduced me to Jovy as I was close to making an offer on a property. Even though I was already working with another realtor, Jovy still took the time to help me and offer me invaluable advice. He never pressured me to switch to him. He has a positive energy and I feel like he takes really good care of his clients. I would definitely use him if I sell or buy in the future.

Jovy and his team are great! He was with us at every step of the home buying process. He is very accommodating and works crazy hours just to make sure the deal gets done at the best terms for you and your family. He cares for his clients and has a real passion for his job. Will definitely be my real estate agent again for the next home purchase!

We met Jovy at an open house in 2016. Since then we started connecting with him and talking about possible options for the close future. After getting our PR and the down payment ready, Jovy started sending us possible options based on our budget. Finally we made a decision of the unit that best fitted us and Jovy did all the buying process really smooth. He is a really patient guy, always with the best attitude and a big smile. He put the client’s needs before anything to get you the best product for you. At the end he is not only our realtor but a really good friend.

Jovy has been nothing but exceptional throughout my process of buying my first home as I move to Vancouver. From Day 1, he has held my hand and guided me through one of the hugest decisions of my life and now I am a happy homeowner of a home I didn't dream I can get! Jovy really listened to my needs, concerns and desires in buying a home, which put me at ease in an otherwise stressful process, especially being remote (living outside of BC) for some of the property hunting phase. Not only that, I am very new to the city and he really helped me make well informed decisions based on his expertise and knowledge of the city. He really knows his craft and with extreme professionalism and work ethic, he not only found a home in a desirable location that met my aspirations, he helped me close on that home with the best value that I've seen in the market! I really trusted Jovy throughout this process with zero regrets because he has not only been understanding but caring, where he just wanted what was best for me. I can't say enough great things about him and his work. You'll be in really good hands if you choose Jovy to be your realtor. I highly recommend his services!

Jovy is such a friendly individual. Every client that meets Jovy has instantly felt a strong bond with him, and it’s because of his warm personality. Jovy will always ensure his clients feel comfortable throughout the entire home buying process, as he is extremely diligent. You’ll feel a warm welcome when you meet Jovy with his big smile!
By: Jenny Kim
My partner and I worked with Jovy to search for our first home together. From the very start, Jovy was so warm, knowledgeable and receptive to all our questions and concern and expertly guided us through the whole process. He is so easy to communicate with, and shares his expertise in a way that helps you understand the ins and outs of the real estate market. Jovy builds such a strong sense of trust with his clients, and works incredibly hard to find a home that fits with your needs, budget and lifestyle. We are so happy with our new home, and we couldn't have done it without Jovy. Thank you again!

Jovy has been an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. He was professional throughout the entire process and always made it clear that he was out for our best interests. We fully intend on using him again the next time we move and would happily recommend him to our friends and family.

Jovy is truly in a league of his own. My best friend knows Jovy and expressed how he is a very sweet, honest and motivated individual. This friend is not one to sugarcoat things, so safe to say when he vouched for Jovy I was interested. Even with such high praise I was still skeptical and on guard. So the fact that he managed to exceed my expectations says a lot. I'll be honest, I didn't have a very favorable view of Realtors. The limited experiences I've had with them left a bitter taste in my mouth. Each one conveying the composure and energy of a deceptive car salesman. Jovy on the other hand, comes off as a passionate professional that you can truly open up to. Couple this with the fact that I'm a first time home buyer and felt very much out of my element. Working a demanding full time job plus overtime meant I also had very little free time. It's crystal clear to me now that this is why people like Jovy thrive. He has honed his skills, experiences and knowledge to craft a tailor made, highly detailed, step by step process. Each step including ample information and constant support to address any questions. It became clear how much he goes out of his way to ensure his clients are at ease, trusting and familiar with what can be a very uncertain and stressful endeavor. There were never any surprises. There were very few second guesses. The doubt, anxiety and stress I was fully expecting and prepared for was surprisingly minimal. It's for those reasons that Jovy has single-handedly reshaped my thinking and perception of his industry. Despite the unfavorable individuals that are in the same profession, he is clearly a standout choice who is very dedicated to his craft.

Jovy really helped me and my partner. Always positive and with a problem solving mindset!!

I had the most amazing experience with Jovy. He is just a great agent that learned about my needs and what kind of investment property I was looking for. He was 100% by my side analyzing the market and the options out there. He not only got me the best property at the time but he went above and beyond to get me an even better deal than the original asked price. I strongly recommend Jovy Desepeda as a real state agent and I look forward to buying another property with his guidance. Thank for all the help Jovy!

I wouldn't recommend anyone else to assist with your home search. My family and I worked closely with Jovy to help find the first home of my dreams. I'm a first time home buyer and certainly, a little intimidated before the process started. Jovy lent more than a helping hand from beginning to even after the end. Many thank yous, Jovy - for making this very intimidating experience feel safe and very exciting.

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Jovy. His response time and availability were flawless. He listened to what we wanted and was truly invested in our future and making our dreams come to fruition. The best thing was we had fun the entire time. I wouldn't want to have shared that experience with anyone else. Thank you for making our dreams a reality

We decided on taking Jovy as our realtor for the first purchase of our home in Vancouver. We are not first time home buyers and are quite familiar with the process and needless to say, our expectations were quite high. Jovy outperformed every other real estate agent we have ever worked with. He’s prompt, great communicator and no request was too much. My husband and I were a bit undecided if we wanted to stay in the city or go as far as Burnaby. Jovy didn’t discourage us nor did he force us to buy something we absolutely did not love. He gave his opinion when we asked for it and gave us great advice. What amazed me the most about him is that he was able to tailor the listings he was showing us to fit our style. You know those agents that ask you a few things you absolutely must have on a property then, later on, sends you numerous emails with listings on your “wishlist”? Basically sending you anything new that comes up? Yeah, that’s not Jovy’s style. To me, it seems like he actually screens the listings before sending anything to us. I really appreciated that.

We first met Jovy at an open house about 2 years ago when we were just casually looking for a condo. His approachability and professionalism was so memorable that when it came time to sell our place, Jovy was the obvious choice. Communication was something that was really important to us. Not only did Jovy communicate extremely well but he also went out of his way to check in even when he had no updates, just to ensure that we knew he was on it. It was great to know that he was truly keeping our preferences in mind throughout the transaction. On top of selling our place in under a week, Jovy helped us find a stager, a contractor and recommended an excellent agent for our purchase too. If you want an agent that will make you feel comfortable, always keep you in the loop and thinks of everything - Jovy is your guy! We have and will continue to recommend Jovy’s services to everyone we know selling or buying in Vancouver.

Finally deciding to purchase a home is one of the biggest decisions I've ever made. Unsure of how the process works I placed my whole trust in Jovy and he delivered. ? From day one, he exemplified professionalism and knowledge throughout the entire process. He guided me every step of the way, making sure I am informed at every stage. He was one step ahead in planning for the next action that made the process easy, simple and organized. When I had doubts in certain aspects, he supported and gave me the necessary information to ease away all my worries. ? I am grateful for the opportunity to work with him. He was definitely the best choice in making my dream home in a reality.
