Joseph has been investing in rental properties and flipping properties since he was 19 years old and has been selling real estate for over a decade now. He truly loves this industry, both residential and commercial, because it runs in his DNA! Nearly all of Joseph's family is in the industry. From his Grandfathers to parents to cousins and in-laws, selling and investing in Real Estate is a family business. Joseph works excellently with millennial's, as he understands the eagerness and the anxiety that first-time buyers experience during the process. He does not hide the commitment (and enjoyment) that is involved in owning a home. Joseph has been a homeowner since he was 19, so he really does know the pride of ownership and maintenance considerations that come with homeownership. For more experienced buyers, Joseph understands the balancing act of selling an existing home while also looking for that perfect upgrade house that better suits a growing family. The cash-flow issues for this set of transactions require measured support from a Realtor, and Joseph is that guy. This is true also for more mature buyers who need to sell their larger house so that they can start enjoying life with a home on a smaller scale. In regard to investing, Joseph can help you with everything from estimating renovation costs to analyzing cap rates, he can help you determine when to buy, when to sell, and when to hold (rent).

"Joseph is an exceptionally knowledgeable and professional realtor. My wife and I were first-time home buyers moving from out of state and had a limited time-frame to find exactly what we were looking for. After helping us identifying and prioritizing our wants/needs, Joseph came well prepared with a number of listings and created a no-pressure environment where we could openly discuss our thoughts/concerns at each showing. He understands investment opportunities and risks when analyzing properties and I trust he’s truly looking out for our best interests to fit our short-term and long-term goals. His open communication and immediate response time, day or night, throughout the process helped us find a home and close in a very tight time-frame. His competitiveness and strong negotiation skills during the close process saved us thousands by learning the seller’s motivations and understanding our budget. I’m glad he was on our side. Even now, more than a month after closing, he still recommends contractors and other service providers when we reach out to him looking for suggestions as we complete work on our home. In the future, if we ever decide to buy or sell, there is no one else I would go to." - Ryan and Michelle
"Joseph was absolutely amazing to work with. For starters, he's knowledgeable about all aspects of property and real estate, detail-oriented and super responsive. More than that though I found Joseph to have every intangible quality that we would want your estate agent to have. He was extremely personable and my wife and I feel very comfortable with his professional but warm demeanor. He really took the time to get to know us and to understand our needs. He was honest at every turn, never sugarcoating answers or telling us what he thought that we would want to hear. Also, he was also able to come up with a very creative solution that allowed us to purchase our dream home, a home that at first appeared to be out of our price range, much faster than we had expected (not to mention at a significantly discounted price from the listing). He was there every step along the way and I would URGE ANYBODY PURCHASING A HOME IN THE ATLANTA AREA TO STOP LOOKING FOR YOUR AGENT AND GO WITH JOSEPH ELKOURIE." - Justin and Randa
"Forget every negative stereotype you have about real estate agents! Joseph Elkourie disproves them all. He made selling our Marietta home AND buying our dream home in Jasper totally turn-key. Double closing was a non-event, with none of the last-minute dramatics we'd come to expect. He even set us up with the movers to handle our northward relocation. I really don't know how someone half my age accumulated enough experience to pull off this kind of complex transaction. He made it look easy; and more importantly, he MADE it easy for us. Whether you're looking to sell your current home, or in search of your next, call this guy first. He's that good." - Gary and Kris
"Joseph is the best in the business. He willingly took on our challenging case and made the near-impossible happen- ending with us in our dream home. He is intelligent, creative, and responsive, and is the only agent I would feel comfortable referring to everyone for both selling and purchasing a home. I'm so thankful that I was able to work with a professional who was so passionately committed to getting the job done because I know our family wouldn't be in our forever home without him. I could not recommend him more highly!" - Kim and Ram
"Joseph was incredible from the beginning! Not only did he help us find our first home; he also took the time to explain everything that was going on throughout the home buying process. He was able to tell us everything about the house itself and the neighborhood, even giving us some tips on how to best navigate the area. When it came time to bid, Joseph was an incredible negotiator. He was available whenever we needed him and was able to answer every question we had. He's continued to be helpful even after the move by giving us advice on how to move-in, shop smart for furniture, and really make our house feel like a home. We cannot recommend Joseph enough to our friends and will absolutely have him on call should we ever need to move again!" - Wilson and Dana
"Joseph was the perfect realtor for our condo in Vinings! His attention to details was extremely on point, he was hands-on in resolving issues, and communicated frequently about progress and deadlines. 10/10 would recommend him as our Greatest Of All Time realtor that we will continue to use in the future." - John C.
