Joe strives each day to find the best ways to service his clients!
We were first time home-buyers, found Joe DeChristofaro by a happy accident. It was serendipitous that, while searching the vast uncharted real estate sites online, we met Joe when he appeared in an ad for a home we wanted to see, we inquired and Joe promptly called me back and proceeded to ask me a few questions about my real estate needs and, upon hearing that I was relatively uninformed about how the home-search worked, he took the time to educate me about the process, the advantages of employing an agent, and what options we would encounter during my search for said agent. He encouraged us to do our research and look around for an agent that would suit our needs, but also offered to meet with us to potentially provide representation to both of us during our search, should we feel as though he would be a good fit for us. we were so impressed by his honesty, kindness, and genuine willingness to educate us on all things real estate, that we decided that he was the agent for us. Throughout our long search, Joes passion for his profession shone bright and we were regularly impressed by his reliability, enthusiasm, and motivation to help us make a good decision. Because we were new to home buying, our needs from Joe were often demanding and complex. Not only did we need help finding a home, but we also needed guidance in all aspects regarding home ownership and finance. With what can only be described as saintly patience, Joe walked us through every baby-step of the way, ensuring that we completely understood each part of the process, what our options were, and all of the pros and cons. He took the time to meet and talk with us often, getting to know us and our tastes well; Sometimes, with his knowledge of us combined with his professional experience, he was better at anticipating and clarifying our needs before we were even able to conceptualize them. He answered all phone calls, emails, and text messages in a timely manner and we never had to wait to see potential homes. When it came time to negotiate with selling agents, Joe fought for us passionately and it was clearer than ever that his representation of us was not only meant for a personal sale and a pay day, but instead for the integrity of his own business validated daily for him through the satisfaction and eventual long-term happiness of his clients. We were updated regularly on the progress of the negotiation and, in the meantime, Joe introduced us to a trusted mortgage colleague, who would walk us through the financial responsibilities and expectations of home ownership with the same patience, scrupulousness, and care that he, himself, would employ with his clients. It is of equal merit to note that Joe was not only knowledgeable about the general ins and outs of real estate, but was also dedicated to being able to help us with specific things, that some may consider outside the role of a real estate agent but that Joe knew were important. From knowing the lifespan of a septic tank to the approximate cost of remodeling a bathroom, Joe was there to help us envision what was and what could be for every property that we considered for our future home. It is with much thanks to Joe that we I have found our new home and still use the information that Joe has taught us to navigate this new experience. We have formed a lasting relationship with Joe and know that we can refer to his information-rich website and newsletter to glean home-ownership insights any time. I can, without hesitation or reserve, recommend Joe DeChristofaro as an agent who is dedicated to the long-term satisfaction of his clients, and not just the quick sale turnover. Joe strives each day to find the best ways to service his clients and represent the real estate market honestly and with the greatest integrity because he truly has revere, passion, and respect for the process of finding and selling homes, and more importantly, for the happiness of others. - Cassie & Mike I.
