"I want to thank Joe and his assistant for helping me through one of the most difficult and challenging parts of my life with the housing market spiraling down at a rapid rate. I did not know what to do. I was within 16 days of a public auction. When Joe found this out, he quickly made a plan of action; but at the same time kept a calmness about the situation that I will always be grateful. His kindness and understanding, but more important knowledge of the ever changing real estate market, helped sell my house and kept it from going into foreclosure. I could not have asked for a better person to see me through this and a simple thanks does not seem enough. His concern and kindness will not be forgotten. Thank you so very much for all your help. You went well beyond the 'call of duty. I know that Jim and I will be very happy in our new home." -Christine S.

"In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been.
