2013 wrapped up with me ranking  #1 Individual Realtor in our Brokerage, soon to be the largest, most successful agency in the area. I among the Top Ten Individual Realtors in the Athens Area Association of Realtors. I ranked in Keller Williams Top 20 Individual Realtors in the entire Southeast Region of the U.S. Again in 2013, I have reached the Highest Level of Achievement in our Association (Circle of Honor). Not Bad...But I'm always ready to improve.

I know Real Estate, The Local Market, and I Know People.  If you are Selling, Buying, or Investment Purchasing, you need to talk with me first. Read my reviews here from real clients and I think you will see I am a person who has the highest integrity in a business where the conventional wisdom is there is no integrity and realtors are out for themselves. I am the opposite and let my reviews show you that, then call me.

I am a solid negotiator and leave my ego out of the equation.  I believe in getting it done in a way that is ethical but with the necessary hustle required to keep all my buyers and sellers firmly in the first position.

I am an analytical, data-driven realtor, and I refuse to accept that houses are no longer investments like we keep hearing in the news. I would love to work with you and your family to get your home sold or help you buy your next one. There is an old saying in real estate that you make your money at the purchase of your home. Sounds like an oxymoron but it's true: Buy right and you will sell right.

Need an analysis of your current home's position in the marketplace? Wondering if it is time to buy or liquidate investment properties? Looking for a 1031 Exchange? Call me today and I can discuss numbers and what all I do to get my listings sold and get my buyers into homes and solid investments! I will gladly put you in touch with current and past clients, many of whom I now count as good friends. 

Visit my website at www.athensrealestateguy.com or my ever-evolving blog at www.classiccityguide.com See you in Athens where my Tours & Market Knowledge have become Legendary among past clients, especially incoming UGA Faculty, who end their time with me feeling like a local...Call or email today and you will be making the first step in what I assure you will be the smoothest real estate transaction you've ever had.  

Thanks!
Joe P.

      Sold a home in 2014.
      Finding Joe (thanks to reviews like this) was the single best thing that could have happened to us in our search for a new home and sale of our previous home. I can’t recommend him highly enough. His expertise in the Athens market, knowledge of the area, and contacts with housing professionals were absolutely invaluable to us as we negotiated with the seller and embarked on a major renovation. The end result was a beautiful home in an area we never thought we’d be able to afford.

      Once the renovation was well underway on our new home, we contacted Joe again to list our other house. Our goal was a fast sale at the best possible price and the advice he provided with regard to what work needed to be done before listing was spot on. We took every bit of advice he gave us (including recommendations on professionals to get the work done fast) and after more than 30 showings in 45 days we had a solid contract in hand at a fantastic price. We went to closing 2 weeks before we were ready to refinance our renovation/construction loan on the new home – the timing was incredible and it was due in large part to Joe’s hustle, negotiating skills, and large network.

      In addition to all the skills listed above, Joe is honest, friendly, easy to communicate with, and has put together a responsive and helpful team that helped us every step of the way through both the buying and selling processes. Our experience with Joe in both buying and selling was life-changing for us as we are now comfortably in a home that is a perfect fit for our family and life-style in a location that is beyond perfect.

      Joe will tell it like it is – he will tell you what you need to hear, not necessarily what you want to hear. Listen to him!

      Joe is knowledgeable about all things housing-related and all things Athens and I recommend him to anyone (and everyone) I know who is even thinking about buying or selling a house and/or moving to the area!

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Athens, GA.
      I listed my home with Joe Polaneczky at Keller Williams Realty in early February and closed at the end of March. Time was of the essence due to my job relocation. I recommend that you take his home sale preparation advice seriously. Deep clean, paint, unclutter and prune everything before taking photos for the real estate listing sites. Joe personally took the photos for my home. It's important not only to show the layout of your home but also capture it's best attributes and uniqueness. My house is in a shady area and Joe waited for the dappled afternoon sunlight to highlight the screened porch and backyard. I also want to mention that Joe and Stephanie (office manager) are an excellent team. If Joe is showing homes, Stephanie is available to answer questions and keep the paperwork moving. A terrific plus! I was looking for an active, assertive sales professional and can highly recommend him to anyone getting ready to sell or purchase in the Athens area.  MoreLess

      Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Bogart, GA.
      We were finally in a position to put our house on the market and build a new home for our now expanded family. It was vital that we get the price needed to achieve our goals, as well as sell within a certain time frame. Joe did an outstanding job providing us with the market data in our neighborhood and recommended reliable contractors to prepare our home for sale. Because of Joe's experience and knowledge of the Athens area, we sold our home and closed in weeks! Joe tells it how it is and was always available from start to finish. Thank you Joe! If your thinking about putting your home on the market, Joe is the man!  MoreLess
