Joseph Johnston as a tenured Leasing Consultant for ReLISTO views each inquiry as a professional opportunity.  A licensed agent for the past 10 years, he was able to carve a distinct niche in the leasing game on the Monterey Peninsula during a tenuous economic climate.

His existing clientele benefits from his diverse real estate exposure to both commercial and residential platforms, championing the efforts of renegotiations, loan approvals, and business plans.  Maintaining integrity in the industry is paramount to Joseph Johnston, offering clients and partners an honest view of their potential transactions.

Joseph Johnston is authentic in his negotiating of high-end, short and long-term leases for an esteemed clientele in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he lives and enjoys long walks with his Formosan rescue dog, Jack.  He has woven himself into the “fabric of the City” with his curiosity for different cultures and his love for travel and new experiences.

I live in Monterey and own a condo in San Francisco. Joseph Johnston has been fantastic at preparing, interviewing, open housing, marketing and securing a great tenant with minimal down time. I have used Joseph 3 times over the last 5 years and I highly recommend his services. He has reliable resources that can assist you in prepping your place and He is honest, thorough, knowledgeable and ON! I
Highly recommend his services.

Joseph Johnston was wonderful! He was super helpful, honest and transparent, incredibly responsive, and just all around great to work with. He knows the market and quickly got a great sense of what we were looking for - then helped us find a place we love. I've already recommended him to friends and plan to continue doing so.

Worked with Joseph Johnston and found the perfect place in North Beach. There were some delays with the unit itself due to future construction and Joseph was great about keeping me in the loop and working with the owner to get me in :-)

Joseph Johnston helped get me into the ideal place right away. My commute is shorter, I have a great view of the bay and they were so easy to work with. They have so many properties in so many areas and can definitely find something to fill your needs. In fact, they are helping some of our other staff find places too! Will definitely use them again and recommend them to any friends/crew we have coming up to the bay area.

Absolutely the best alternative to corporate housing or traditional apartment sourcing options! I can't say enough great things about ReListo and our agent Joseph Johnson. We moved here from China and he helped us select the best location, home, AND landlord while we were still in China! The video walk-through videos were very helpful!

I've been a SF residential landlord for almost 20 years and have always done my own listings/rentals. Obviously, I have never had problems acquiring tenants in SF and I never expected to use a listing service. Fortunately for me, summer travel plans kept me from being able to list my unit in a timely manner and so i gave these ReLISTO folks a call.

They helped me set a current market rent, handled everything for me (contracts, showings, disclosures, credit checks, etc), and had my unit rented in literally days. Most importantly, they ONLY SHOWED MY UNIT TO EXTREMELY HIGH QUALITY TENANTS! No more time wasters, no credit card junkies, no more lookie loos, no more tenant's union set ups, no more extra tenant surprises, no more oops i have a great dane (that really happened in 1999!), etc. I will continue to do my own maintenance, but i will NEVER list a unit myself again! Thank you Eric Baird. Thank you Joseph Johnston.

Eric Baird and Joseph Johnston have been fabulous to work with! They found us wonderful tenants, and they filled our vacancies expeditiously. Even more impressive - they did all this during an exceptionally challenging time in the rental market. Excellent communication and marketing. Trustworthy advice. Great experience overall - highly recommended!

My experience with Joseph Johnston at ReLISTO was uniformly positive. ReLISTO managed the subletting of my property in San Francisco for several years and did so expertly and efficiently, taking care to find reliable tenants as quickly as possible every time the unit became free. Moreover, Joseph was always very courteous and professional, and he knows the San Francisco rental market well. I give ReLISTO highest marks as a property management company.
