Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in San Antonio, TX.
Hello, my name is Gerard Tetreault originally from Los Angeles, I just recently purchased a home through Joe Corwin and moved less then a month ago to San Antonio. Today was the first time I ever saw Zillow and was so surprised to read some of the negative reviews I just had to add my two cents.

After several negative experiences with other realtors in the San Antonio area my wife and I one morning walked into Joe Corwin's office completely unannounced without an appointment dressed as if we couldn't rub two nickels together and in some ways I expecting to be asked to leave. On the contray after being summond Joe came out to greet us with a big smile and friendly hand shake and welcomed us into a back office. He took the time to find out who we were, what our hopes and expectations were, what type of home were we looking for and what our budget was. And trust me he knew we weren't going to make him millions. Despite that he spent over an hour with us while offering us food and drink. He then had my wife go with another person into another office to look at property listings while he brought in another gentleman to speak to me about finances. Before we left his office that day, some almost 3 hours later we had a realtor lined up to take us to visit 11 properties the next day.

After the second day of visiting properties with our realtor we returned to Joe's office where Joe took time out of his valuable schedule to make small talk with us. We literally spent until almost 9 pm in the evening sharing life experiences with this man, telling stories back and forth as if we had been life long friends. He is an amazing friendly and caring human being. And now that I've gotten to know him a bit more I realize that that is how he treats everybody. He is warm and oblidging and helpful and goes out of his way to make you feel like part of his family and will do almost anything for you. As my wife says;"Joe has a clean heart."

To make a long story short within a week we put an offer down on a beautiful house in the Windcrest area from Joe that we both absolutely love. I truly believe that one of the main reasons we got this house was because of Joe's advise on offering a bit more then the asking price because of the market which I did and of course my offer was accepted.

It troubles me to read some of this negativety because I know Joe takes care of those who come to him. I would recommend Joe Corwin to everybody and anybody who is looking to either sell or purchase a home.

Sold a home in 2013.
Joe Corwin was fantastic from the moment we first spoke to him on the phone. He was able to show us houses immediately and really listened to what we were looking for and was always on top of things when we needed help understanding or wanted to see more houses. Finally, his expert advice and assistance led us to purchase our dream home with many upgrades! We can counted on Joe for his knowledgeable, dedication, and attentive. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor. We would recommend Joe to our friends and family.

Thanks so much for making this easy and possible transaction for all of us.

Sincerely,

Tanoo, Oy, and Adam

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in San Antonio, TX.
I was very impressed with Joe because he and his team were available seven days a week just as the advertisement claimed. Sometimes it's just not convenient to call during business hours because of a work situation and questions needed to be answered but there was always a return call. Of crucial importance for me in selling my house was Joe's negotiating advice during the offer/counter offer process. As a result, I got a price that exceeded my expectations and I received an offer the second day that it was on the market. I highly recommend Joe.

Bought a home in 2012.
Being a first time home owner, I was very nervous about the whole process. After contacting Joe Corwin and, especially, Alex Marti, I was immediately placed at ease with the professional, friendly and knowledge that they displayed. Alex Marti was very helpful and was very patient with us. I would very highly recommend these professionals to every first time buyer and property owners looking for a property manager.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $100K in Blossom Park, San Antonio, TX.
I recently purchased a home with the help of Joe Corwin and Alex Marti, I was extremely pleased with the service I received from these two gentlemen who handled everything in a prompt and professional way. Alex worked hard negotiating my deal with the sellers agent while keeping me informed on the status of my offer. I would highly recommend Alex and Joe for all your home buying or selling needs you will not be disappointed! Jim H.

Property manage a home.
I would never recomend using sellsmart to manage your property. I have had to call Joe Corwin several times because his property managers don't return their calls. He has never resolved any of the issues that we had with his employees, to include returning calls, sending statements of payment to us each month, sending our tax info, and ensuring our tennants were getting repairs done when needed. The airconditioner went out and we were not notified, we only saw a $700 loss on our rent check. His company has a high turnover rate of their employees, so you never know who you are supposed to contact when you need help. We don't even have a set of keys to our home because Joe Corwin has not sent them back to us after we left their property management. With all these issues happening they felt they could keep taking our money for their services when their side of the contract was not being upheld. Stay away from them.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Stone Oak, San Antonio, TX.
After struggling to sell my house with other big name real estate agents for over a year, I met with Joe and gave him the house to sell. Joe straight away sat down with me and gave me idea's on what was lacking. He was very upfront and honest. Further more he sent his assistant who stages houses at no extra charge. They came in and staged the house with beautiful artwork and furniture. He did multiple open houses sometimes even 2 or 3 in a week. Within one month he was able to sell my house. Joe was very patient during the whole process and provided every detail about the process. Also I was able to save big with Joe's sell smart program. I see no reason why anyone would go with other big name companies when Joe does the same job better, faster and saves the client money. Joe is truly AWESOME. A++++

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Encino Park, San Antonio, TX 78259
Seller's beware. I obtained Joe Corwin to sell my home and was promised professional staging and photography. In the end I was to pay for the staging...finally we renegotiated and the staging was on Joe. Then I found out the staging was to be minimal. I have a beautiful home in the $350K range and I was not happy to get MINIMAL staging (LR, Kitchen & Master).

Be cautious and get your deal in writing and be specific!

Dear Sir, We never placed your home on the market. I am sorry there was a misunderstanding on the staging assistance I was providing. Kathleen an accredited home stager was there to provide guidance to you and bring a few things to help with the staging, but not to stage your entire home with staging material. The professional photographer was scheduled to arrive the following day. After this misunderstanding on the staging, etc., I informed you that I thought it was best you had another realtor represent you in the sale of your home. I wish you the very best and sorry things did not work out.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Live Oak, TX.
At first trying to sell my home for a year, I was pretty pessimistic on the home selling process because I felt my home was not a high enough priority for my realtor to earn commission, since my home was moderately priced. So, I decided to change realtors on the recommendation from my neighbors who successfully used Joe Corwin at SellSmart Real Estate, specifically agent Alex Marti. Their philosophy of having lower commissions made sense because they would have to work hard to sell my house as quantity of sales would be more important. Time was imperative in my case. To say the least, Alex delivered on high professionalism, perseverance, customer service, ingenuity, and loyalty that matched all my needs. I couldn't imagine going with another realtor and another selling philosophy. Alex left no stones unturned, and he sold my house in a tough market and a tough situation. If you need your house sold, talk to Alex!!
