“It was great working with Joe, he stuck with us across an arduous 8 month search in the hyper competitive Fort Lauderdale market. His knowledge of local neighborhoods (down to each and every street) and peculiarities unique to Florida was particularly helpful as my husband and I relocated from out of state. After several offers we finally found the perfect house for us, the last month to close was nail biting, but he handled all the curve balls like a pro. Would highly recommend!”
