Bought and sold a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $100K in Downtown West, Saint Louis, MO.

Joe is an incredible realtor. I have nothing but positive things to say about his services, helpfulness, knowledge, and just all around ease of working with. He was always willing to help with any and all questions that came up and got the answers to me quickly. I would recommend him to anyone who  is buying or selling a house!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $350K in Saint Peters, MO.

We moved from north Texas to the St. Louis area, and had a relatively short time frame to find a new home. We were referred to Jean, and are happy we worked with her. She was knowledgeable and very responsive to our needs. Since we were new to the area, we asked her to show us a large number of  properties across a wide area, and she never showed any hesitancy to follow through with that request. We highly recommend Jean to anyone looking to buy a house in the area.

Working with Joe was a wonderful experience. His knowledge of St. Louis and the neighborhoods in it are excellent. As soon as we wanted to see a home he made himself available immediately. He helped walk us through the buying process so that we had no unexpected costs or other problems. I highly  recommend Joe and his team to anyone that is looking to purchase a home in the city of St. Louis.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Shaw, Saint Louis, MO.

Joe was a fantastic realtor. Being new to the St. Louis area, he took us under his wing and patiently showed us multiple houses in multiple areas. He was incredibly knowledgeable about types of houses, features to consider in older homes, neighborhoods of the city, and the general process of purchasing a home. Additionally, he had great advice during the negotiation processes and helped us to get a great deal on a home we love.

Sold a Single Family home in 2016 in Lindenwood Park, Saint Louis, MO.

I used Joe to sell my South City house on a recommendation from a friend. The house sold in 10 days and Joe was exceptional in helping me handle all details with getting the house on the market and completing the sale. In particular if you are buying or selling South City, consider meeting with  Joe, he really understands the area and the market.

Bought a Condo home in 2016 for approximately $100k in Downtown, Saint Louis, MO.


We purchased a condo from out of state, knowing nothing about St. Louis; Joe was an incredible asset and full of knowledge and history about St. Louis. Our purchase was challenging but Joe helped us and kept us informed every step of the way! I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell, especially downtown St. Louis or coming in from out of state.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in Saint Louis, MO.

Joe was our 2nd real estate agent in a very long home searching process. We were first timers and lost out on several houses due to a crazy market and circumstances out of our control. At the point when we hired Joe, we had seen everything, we were tired, fed-up, and not at all optimistic about  finding a new place. Joe was a breath of fresh air - enthusiastic, responsive and knew just when to push us out of our comfort zone. He knows SO much about STL real estate. He really allowed us to relax during the process and was not afraid to consult with other professionals to get any information we need. We found a great house 1 mile outside of our radius that he insisted we visit and it's awesome. The inspection, escrow, closing process was fast and without incident. I would recommend him to all of my friends any family without hesitation.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Southampton, Saint Louis, MO.

Joe is an excellent advocate and willing to go above and beyond for his clients. I felt very supported and cared for. Joe made sure he was available for all inspections and appointments, and that he was communicating regularly with all parties involved (title company, lending company, listing agents, etc). Most importantly, he made sure I was comfortable with every step of the process and took the time to answer all questions I had and check in with me as frequently as I needed. You can expect responses from him within the hour of reaching out! Absolutely the best I have worked with.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Princeton Heights, Saint Louis, MO.

I was a first time home buyer and really didn't have a clue as to what went into buying a home. Joe knew Saint Louis extremely well and was able to lead me in the right direction. What impressed me the most was his background knowledge on mechanical and construction methods. He was able to point  out flaws and other red flags that I wouldn't have noticed or have known to look for. I would highly recommend using Joe in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Maryland Heights, MO.

Joe was extremely helpful in my first experience purchasing a home. He was very patient and catered to all of my requests. As a first time home buyer, I was able to trust Joe to explain house features, contract processes, problem areas, etc. He always had our best interest in mind and always made  himself available. He was present from start to finish, and I felt very confident closing on my new home. Joe made house hunting fun!

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $250K in Holly Hills, Saint Louis, MO.

Joe was amazing to work with. I was buying my first house and he helped me through each stage of the process. He very quickly understood exactly what I was looking for and what was important to me, and was knowledgeable about each stage of the process--from neighborhoods and areas to consider to  tips for home ownership. He was really available and gracious throughout the entire process. He helped me navigate the negotiation process and is a great negotiator. He's also just really easy-going and friendly. Definitely made a stressful process a lot easier.

Helped me rent a Single Family home in Maplewood, MO.

Joe was a FANTASTIC resource for us in finding our rental home. He opened doors we couldn't have, and I firmly believe he is a KEY factor in securing our dream home (which, by the way, had several other offers on it!). He was constantly available for questions and concerns, was a fabulous listener, and incredibly knowledgeable. Besides that, he is a great person! Would HIGHLY recommend to anyone, especially people who are new to the market and need someone kind, responsible, and well-connected to lead them though the jungle. Thanks for all of your help, Joe!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 in Tower Grove South, Saint Louis, MO.

Joe was very personable, and willing to listen to our opinions, but at the same time knowledgeable enough to realize the type of home and neighborhood we were looking for to guide us in the right direction. As a St. Louis native, he provided a wealth of experience and knowledge particular to the  area that we would not have otherwise known. He provided quick and easy access to his MLS with up-to-date information, which was crucial as our circumstances required a quick purchase. He was always willing to take extra time and since we were coming from out of town, he cleared his schedule in advance to take us on tours of homes nonstop. He remained very flexible throughout the entire purchasing process. His demeanor was always professional. We highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for a home in the future!
