Joe helped us find and purchase our first home. During our search, he spent countless hours running around town looking at properties and trying to get our deal done before the market upswing priced us out of our areas of interest. Early in the search, we found a property that we loved and were ready to purchase, and Joe could have cashed in at that point, but he did not. He is trained as an inspector and has a keen eye for spotting trouble. He found evidence of a sewer leak seaping over from an adjacent property and determined, without pulling records, that the property was under remediation for leakage from the former site of a gas station almost a half a block away. He warned us of the hazards and expenses our family would face in that location, and we subsequently decided to move on.
Looking at dozens more properties, Joe spotted issues and used whatever leverage he could find to make our bids more competitive. When he first saw the house we would eventually purchase, he seemed to know almost immediately that it was the right fit for us. He even provided us with accurate expectations of the cost of remodeling portions of the house to help us plan the early years of ownership. Joe has our full faith and confidence, and we regularly recommend him to friends and family. He is motivated by helping people and taking on challenges, so his work is performed with a sense of conscience and duty rather than in search of a quick buck.
