"Our Family does not quite know what we would have done without Joan as we approached the thought of selling estate property of a loved one.
Joan put us at ease so we could still mourn and actually handled every single little detail. Joan kept in constant contact with us, each step of the way. We never were unaware of anything going on with open houses, offers, or any kind of issue. Because we were out of state. She contacted painters, cleaners, carpenters and anything that was needed to get the listing ready. Joan knew exactly how to market the property and because of that, we had a contract and sale very quickly.
Her experience in the whole process shined through which greatly reduced the stress we were under. I want to extend a heartfelt
“THANK YOU SO MUCH” to Joan for all of your hard work. Your efforts from start to finish represent not only your professional abilities, but also how wonderful a person you truly are. Thanks again
" - Maxine R.

"Joan DeRoche recently helped us to sell our two bedroom co-op in the Upper West Side. My wife and I were extremely impressed with Joan right from the start. She simply took the time to listen! We explained our objectives, and she immediately understood what we had in mind. Joan provided us with invaluable advice as to how to show our apartment and target the right audience. Her tips paid off right away, and we ended up with multiple offers. Only a year before her involvement, we had extremely bad results with other realtors. Joan truly made a difference. Her style, demeanor, and projection are extremely impressive. We are extremely satisfied with her services and will definitely recommend her to any property seller. They will be in the best hands!" - Jorge M..

"Joan DeRoche has my praises not because she found our buyer in the first week of our open house, but she provided the most professional, in depth analysis of the market pertaining to my apartment in our neighborhood.
Other real estate agents, notwithstanding their professional brochures, were less convincing of their analysis in providing us with an optimal valuation for our property. We chose Joan because she provided us with comprehensive comparatives of listing and sales in our neighborhood, bringing both quantitative and qualitative aspects to her analysis.
Her pricing strategy and knowhow on staging brought tremendous foot traffic to our two open houses, and we had multiple buyers express interest before our second open house. With our interest in mind, Joan negotiated the best price for our apartment.
She knows her profession, but also is sensitive and understanding. Overall, I would say that she demonstrates unwavering commitment when she engages with her clients.
" - Mita R.

"I am writing to express my satisfaction with Joan DeRoche as a Realtor. As a first time New York City buyer, I spent about 8 months on my own doing research on the market. But once I was put in contact with Joan she really helped accelerate the process of vetting, searching, and analyzing apartments for my new home in NYC.
Throughout the entire process Joan was professional, conscientious, and motivated. She made me feel as though I was her only client and was constantly available around the clock (even during her vacations). She was patient and very thorough with details.
Most importantly Joan is a New Yorker with good contacts and though knowledge of the UWS housing market.
" - Eunice P.

"My closing was kind of difficult for many reasons, working with Joan made the whole difference and thanks to her I was able to finally close the deal. I would never think of calling someone else for next apartment purchase, she has my highest recommendation and trust. " - Francisco F.

"I have only compliments to describe Joan’s abilities as a real estate broker. Having discovered her thought the sale of an apartment in the building that I was renting I reached out to Joan when it came time for my wife and me to purchase an apartment.
As first time homebuyers seeking a two-three-bedroom apartment with a modest budget we knew our search would be a challenge. Joan took this on with confidence and spent countless weekends with us to find the home that would serve our family for years to come.
She emanates a sense of trustworthiness and kindness through a very involved process. Joan is a true professional, and puts her clients’ interest first. I would happily give Joan my highest recommendation for anyone desiring to sell or buy. Her in depth knowledge of the NYC market combined with her numerous professional and personal contracts in the business positions her to take advantage of the opportunities for her clients. This sets her apart from all her fellow realtors.
" - Rodney B.

"I feel so lucky I had Joan DeRoche as a realtor. She is the best! First of all, she puts you at ease with her warmth and care. She is invested in optimizing and staging your apartment for the best outcome and quick sell. My selling and buying an apartment was a complicated one and she was always there with sound advice and expertise. Secondly, she was instrumental in selling my apartment during a pandemic! Not an easy thing to do given the climate in New York, but with her dedication and determination, she made this happen! I am so grateful and would highly recommend her as a realtor!!"
