Joe did an outstanding job in selling our apartment. He consistently stayed on top of current market trends to appropriately set our offering price and get us a sales price with which we were very happy. In a falling housing market in a time of relative distress, Joe actually got us more per square foot than we paid at time of original purchase. That in of itself is an amazing feat. Joe was very respectful of our time constraints and scheduling preferences. He made the selling and negotiating process a very easy and seamless one. He recommended closing agents and an attorney, both of whom we used and were pleased with. He also recommended moving companies which we used and were happy with. Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy, sell, or rent property. He handled each part of the selling, closing and moving process for us with ease and professionalism. Over the past decade I have used quite a few real estate agents, and Joe is the Gold Standard.

"Joseph was my real estate agent when I recently sold my property. I strongly recommend Joseph to anyone. He is extremely knowledgeable about the market, and will be honest in his feedback if the timing is not right. In my case, Joe's predictions on the duration it would take, and the market value of my property were spot on. Often times he would reject poor offers with confidence that the right buyer would come. Joe has displayed a consistently positive attitude, with high energy, and professionalism. He also amazed me at the number of clients he was able to attract. Joe is someone that truly loves what he does, and enjoys helping clients reach their goals. I am looking forward to working with Joe again in the future, and would recommend him to any of my colleagues."
