I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help with the recent sale of my rental property. Joe, you went above and beyond the usual steps necesssary to complete a transaction such as this, and I sincerely appreciate those extra efforts. Jessica, you were wonderful to work with. Your dedication and attention to details was amazing. I was very impressed and grateful for your quick responses and your ability to keep everything coordinated with all of the people involved. Because of this satisfying and enjoyable experience, I would highly recommend your team to anyone who is considering buying or selling property.
Joy and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your services in selling our house in Long Beach, Ca. You know the circumstances that made the sale of our house particularly difficult for us, and consequently for you. We live in Strasburg, Pennsylvania, almost three-thousand miles away. We we able to make the sale without once having to travel to California. You found an escrow officer for us, you arranged the inspections and found all the trades' people required to make the necessary repairs; you took care of the termites, provided all the correspondence and coordination and always kept us informed through e-mail, text, or telephone. One thing that really helped us through the process of finding a buyer and completing the sale, was that you placed the utilities in your name so the house could be shown properly and the repairs could be made-- you even mowed the lawn for us!
We have sold many homes in our lifetime, and we have never found a Realtor who provided the service, care and communication through the entire process that you have. It is clear to us that you are a true professional, one who goes the limit to assure that every item is addressed and resolved. This could have been a nightmare for us, requiring us to travel to California, find trades people to make the repairs, and cost us untold expenses in the process. It may be hard for you to imagine the amount of trust that we placed in you, a person we only knew through reputation. We had to rely on your expertise and judgment through the entire process and trust that you would get it done. We have lived long enough to recognize that there are few business people who are honest, reputable and trustworthy, and you certainly are one of the few. We would like to offer ourselves as a reference resource to anyone who may want to inquire about our experience with you as our Realtor.
Joe, Just wanted to write a short note to thank you and your staff for the excellent job you did in selling my Long Beach property. These are hard times and I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about selling this property, you and your staff made this a very enjoyable experience. You told me you would have my property sold within the month and boy, were you right!! Not only did you sell my property within the time frame you promised but you sold it for more than my asking price, unbelievable!! Than you again, to you and your staff for your professionalism and wonderful marketing skills.
I am writing this letter on behalf of my husband and I to thank you so much for everything you did in helping us move. We highly recommend you to anyone else interested in buying or selling a home. To those of you reading this, Joe was absolutely amazing in all that he did for us. He went above and beyond our expectations of what a real estate agent should do. He helped us every step of the way with all the paperwork involved, and even put up with my millions of questions about every little thing! He coordinated loan officers, two escrow companies, other real estate agents, inspectors, and all the other people involved when you buy and sell a house. He helped us get our former house ready for sale, helped us to get a great repair man, and even helped water our lawn so it would look green for the open house. His sound advice helped us sell our house in the time we wanted!
Joe, we appreciated all of you hard work to get us into our new house. You took care of all of the details so that we wouldn't have to worry so much. You were there right through moving day, and even were there afterwards to make sure that everything was still going ok. The other thing we appreciated so much was that you always communicated with us every step of the way, and were always accessible to answer our questions and concerns. We couldn't ask for more.
Again, we would highly recommend Joe to anyone planning a move. We are so happy with the way everything went, and we are thrilled with our new home!
Just a note to say thank you for the very efficient way that you handled the sale of my home (2016 Conquista Ave). Your sales methods were excellent as well as the way you promoted and put on the "open houses". Thanks again for a job well done.
We want to express our appreciation for the service you provided in selling our home in Long Beach. When we needed to sell our house, we chose you based on your reputation in the community, your knowledge and experience and your professional assessment of our home. You proved to be as advertised. We relied on your professional expertise and advise and were thrilled with the results.
Everything you told us about the current market and the best way to show the house was 'spot on'; including the suggested listing price. You took care of the bothersome details during the process and kept us informed. Because of your professionalism, the entire process was stress-free for us. And, the house sold in less than 30 days - for the original asking price! It was a real pleasure working with you. Thank you so much for making the whole experience educational and profitable.
We just had a chance to wind down from the grandchildren visiting and graduation festivities, and we wanted to say "thanks"! We appreciate very much your handling of the sale of our house. You certainly are an area specialist and gave us great advice. We felt well represented and were happy with the price of the property and the length of the escrow... now we can breathe :)
It was a pleasure doing business with you, and we would recommend you to anyone who asked.
PS ~ Thanks for the Bristol Farms gift certificate, too.
"My dad said, 'Have Joe sell the house.' I had never sold a home before so I wanted to be careful... Many years ago, my father bought his home in Los Altos. He met Joe as he walked door to door and saw him frequently working the area. Dad wisely told me to use Sopo and I am glad I listened! At our first meeting, I found Joe to be knowledgeable and helpful as he answered all my questions. Although the experience of selling a home was a mystery to me, he made the process easier to understand. Once we set a price, Joe exposed our home to buyers and real estate agents representing possible buyers. We only needed one open house and the offers began to stream in. I was able to get close to my asking price so I was very happy. I know Joe did a lot of work behind the scenes to get me my price and to make the deal go smoothly. I really appreciate his effort. I AM GLAD I LISTENED TO MY DAD'S WISE WORDS AND I THINK YOU SHOULD TOO"
