“We both loved Joe’s enthusiasm from the moment we met him. Although we had only planned on seeing one house that evening; Joe had a list of several houses for sale in the area. We were able to see 4-5 listings that day.

Joe never gave up and we just purchased our dream home! We are now listing our previous home with Joe and look forward to house hunting again for a rental investment.
As my friend stated, “When we’re ready to buy, Joe’s our guy!””

“Joe is extremely knowledgeable about the Columbus real estate market. He was a great resource, not only in the real estate transaction but in the construction and upkeep of homes. His knowledge of the neighborhoods was definitely a plus since we were from out of town and did not know the Columbus area. He was patient and prepared. He had referrals at his fingertips for inspectors, movers, locksmiths, security companies. Honestly, he was helpful in every aspect of our real estate search and the final transaction. Overall we had an enjoyable, non-stressful and easy time, and Joe found us the perfect home in a great neighborhood.”

“I can’t say enough about Joe’s knowledge and skill-set that helped us secure our family’s first home. From the first time we met, he informed us of a specific loan we had not known we were eligible that saved us tens of thousands of dollars on our down payment. He was able to put us in contact with an amazing loan officer, and though we only had 21 days to close, Joe kept things moving smoothly and organized; we always felt we could reach out to him with any questions or concerns. He was also able to successfully negotiate with the sellers on our behalf to make improvements to the home that we needed in order to feel comfortable with the final sale. I would recommend Joe to anyone looking for a realtor who will put them first, especially a first time home buyer such as myself!”

“On a whim, we decided to go to an open house in Old Town East. That is where we met Joe. We told him that we were fairly new at looking at houses but we were considering buying vs renewing our rent. Later that day, he invited us to look at few more homes over in Weinland Park. We really appreciated that the had the MLS docs to share with us and giving insightful information. We knew after that day he was going to be our realtor. During the home search process we loved his honest opinion, he was always on our side, and we never felt forced to make an offer. He was great at guiding our decisions and didn’t waste our time. We saw dozens of homes after that, but 2 months later we closed back on that 1st home we saw in Weinland Park. On the day of closing, he popped a bottle of Champagne at the closing and the cork shot out so fast that it dented the ceiling in the shape of the cork! We had a good laugh. Joe was a joy to work with. He will work with you on getting you what you want!”

“Working with Joe was a great experience for us as first-time home buyers. Immediately after asking if he would represent us, he worked through the night building a portfolio of homes that he thought we might be interested in, and he ended up being spot-on with matching to our tastes. He was more than willing to make himself available to best suit our needs, even if it meant making a showing work at 9 PM. He’s also a great negotiator and will make sure you’re getting the best possible deal. If you want to ensure you find the right house at the right price, Joe is your guy.”
