I contacted Joseph to help me find a house when I moved back to AZ. He sold my parents' house in Chandler the previous year, and they raved about how great he was at negotiating. They had nothing but great things to say about him, and, trusting their opinions, I decided to use Joseph as my agent.
I could not have made a better decision. Joseph talked me through every step off the process. When I initially started looking, I wasn't sure when I would be able to buy, as I was trying to sell a house out of state. Regardless of the fact that he knew a sale might be in the distant future, he spent 6 Saturdays with me looking at houses. He was knowledgeable about the different areas of town, had great visions for how I could adapt homes to make them work for me, and wasn't afraid to point out potential pitfalls.
Once I found a house, he spent a number of hours negotiating in my best interests (in the end he got me a much better deal than I had dared hope for), meeting tradesmen at the house to get quotes, and calling the city to get information about work that needed to be done. He was consistently available and was very detail oriented, adjusting language in my documents to get it just right. To top it all off, he is an incredibly nice guy and fun to look at houses with!
My dad went on many of the showings with me. He is a hard man to please, but, after I closed, he told me that I had lucked out with Joseph and that he has never seen an agent work so hard for a buyer.
I would highly recommend Joseph as your agent!
