 "Joelle is a true professional and an excellent agent. We had interviewed multiple agents for selling our home, and selected Joelle for her transparent approach and strong strategy. As an example, she had advised us to paint and stage the house (that was different from the advise we received from the other agents), which differentiated our home from the others in hindsight. She is confident, understands the market, and patiently guided us throughout the ups and downs of the selling process. We got significant interest in the house from buyer’s with multiple offers in 2 weeks, and ultimately closed the sale within 45 days. She went above & beyond and got us the best price for our home. We owe our quick close to Joelle’s efforts and the excellent marketing that she did. We would definitely recommend her!

"Joelle was fantastic from start to finish! We appreciated how accessible she was and her willingness to walk us step by step through each part of the process. When it came time to put an offer a house, Joelle helped us think through multiple ways to make our offer more competitive. At no point in the process did we feel pressure and Joelle was very helpful for understanding what might be a good deal and what might be overpriced. Her knowledge of and excitement about the area was also very helpful! "

"Michael and Joelle made all the difference. This unit suffered several hiccups along the way but they worked through each one. I already had an agent and once I switched to Compass, then the "true selling" began. So pleased with the outcome. Thanks a billion ."
"Joelle and her Associate, Michael, were awesome in helping us prepare our home before listing it. We had a good idea what to do but they truly helped in reorganizing our priorities. They know what buyers are looking for and what doesn't really matter. Their on-line marketing strategy is very targeted and works! We had multiple offers in just seven days and accepted what we all considered to be the best one for us. Joelle's communication through the process was great and always helpful. If she didn't have an answer to a question we had, she would investigate and get back to us. We would definitely recommend Joelle and her team to anyone thinking of selling their home." - Surnadal

"Joelle is the best Realtor in the Jersey City and NYC area! I was trying to sell my condo remotely. I had moved to another city long time ago and was renting my condo in Jersey City for a while. Then I decided to sell earlier this year but could not fly back to JC due to Covid. First time I hired another big-name realtor with a large team that seemed super professional. However, it did not go very well. After more than half a year without a single offer, I called Joelle. She helped me took care of everything!!! She staged my condo, asked people to design my backyard and shoot super good photos and videos. Then my condo was sold very quickly. I did not even show up during the whole process, and eventually the money came to my bank account, all because Joelle took care of everything! You must hire her if you want to buy or sell a home. She is very professional, responsive, caring, and down-to-detail. Highly recommend her!" - Wenhua J.

"I had used Joelle for selling my condo in Jersey City. Joelle was wonderful and great to work with. She went out of the way to help with the entire sales process. She managed to get multiple offers within 1 week of listing and sold the unit for over the listed price. I would recommend her highly if you are looking for somebody to help with your real estate needs." - nitikochhar

"Joelle was a dream to work with. We are first time home buyers and had NO IDEA what we were doing. From the start she made us feel at ease and never once seemed annoyed or irritated when we had a million questions about the whole process. Which is a serious process. Wow. Which is not to say don't buy a house...just that you should buy a house with Joelle! I really don't have any bad words to say. She works incredibly hard and truly puts the buyer first. She is funny, kind, and knows her stuff. She was flexible too - willing to show us things that were a bit out of what we thought we wanted, but also willing to show us places that we had found on our own and were curious about. She is really knowledgable about real estate in general, and incredibly so in the Jersey City area where we were looking. Joelle is a phenomenal broker, especially for a first time home buyer. I hope that you consider and ultimately choose her as someone to help you on this venture!!! Also - Joelle please stay in touch and I hope you'll join us at our housewarming BBQ whenever we're allowed to hang out with humans again! Date TBD. :)" - Mali

Now that she helped me find the perfect condo to buy, I can honestly say I'm going to miss her." - Alice
