Ratings & Reviews

My wife and are were first-time home buyers, and Joe was a huge asset to have on our side. He was always responsive and informative when we had questions. He advocated for us relentlessly with the seller, and worked ridiculous hours to accommodate our schedule. With Joe's assistance, we were able to close in just 21 days, and I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone who needs a real estate agent.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $450K in Davis, CA.

Joe went the extra miles for me - he sold me my dream home and also sold my dream home for me when I moved out of state. Joe handled everything for me while I was out of state and was fantastic to work with. He got me the best price for landscaping, repairs, and the house price! Go with Joe! :)

We fully recommend Joe Kaplan.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Davis, CA.

Joe is truly an amazing agent! He came highly recommended to us and we are so happy we worked with him. He is always patient and supportive of your needs. As first-time home buyers, he made the experience as smooth as possible and gave us lots of invaluable information. He is fully dedicated and committed to his clients, no matter what the circumstances are, or where you are in the process. He has so much experience (buying and selling) and is extremely ethical and professional. He is always available and goes above and beyond. He's not only a great agent, but a wonderful person as well. Go with Joe! You'll be glad you did.

Bought a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $300K in South Cape, Davis, CA.

Joe took care of diverse issues during the entire process of purchasing the property. My mother and I viewed properties, she made a successful offer, and completed the purchase. Joe's wise advice and hard work made this a breeze. His Davis-specific knowledge was invaluable not only in selecting properties to view, but all the way through closing. For example, he took time to explain how the City of Davis does its own inspection of residential properties before sales are completed. Joe is hard-working, and yet manages to remain calm and relaxed, serving as a reassuring anchor during moments of indecision. He is attentive to the smallest immediate details, and yet keeps a long-term perspective alive. Joe's network of reliable folk and willingness to put time into the process, such as meeting the home inspector, made our from-out-of-town business deal comfortable.

Bought a home in 2013 in Central Davis, Davis, CA 95616.

Joe met with us one time and immediately understood the type of help that we needed. We were first time home buyers and new to the process. He did just the right amount of hand holding with us to help us along, and was never overbearing. His responsiveness is incredible and was part of the reason we were able to close on a house so quickly (We closed in less than 30 days). His knowledge of the area and recommendations for mortgage brokers, inspectors, and contractors is spot on. I would highly recommend Joe for your home buying search. You will not be disappointed.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Graystone Centex Homes, Davis, CA.

Joe is smart, friendly, responsive, business/technology savvy, straightforward no-gimmicks guy who is on the top of his game. So, don't waste your time with anyone else if you have real estate needs in the Davis/Yolo county area. Give him a call. I am glad I did.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $675K in West Davis Manor, Davis, CA.

Joe Kaplan helped us move from Sacramento to Davis. Our first exposure to him was through his website descriptions of Davis neighborhoods, which we found invaluable. Once we were ready to retain a realtor, we met Joe and instantly found him approachable and knowledgeable. As he visited houses with us, he was never pushy but, instead, listened to us so he could hep us find the house we wanted. Once we found and purchased a house, he was there by our side every step of the way through escrow and after, helping us with the process and even wrapping up loose ends. Thank you Joe! Best realtor we have ever worked with!

Sold a home in 2013 in Central Davis, Davis, CA 95616.

Joe is well balanced in his ability to provide knowledgeable advice, while also understanding a client's needs. Joe was always readily available, clear communicator, very friendly and approachable. Joe is very sincere and fair. It is a business, but you know that Joe also cares. As time went on, I felt like I was working with a good friend.
