I have hired Joseph 2 times in the past 2 years; once as a buying agent and once as a selling agent. He is very knowledgeable and very dedicated to the task at hand. His ability to maneuver through obstacles is impressive and he has gone above and beyond his duties to make things happen. I am so impressed with his services that I decided to hire him again to represent me in the sale of yet another property this year. I hope he remains in this industry for years to come so that other clients can benefit from his expertise as much as I have.
Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $275K in Newark, CA.
I was buying my first home and Joseph was immensely helpful. I came to see one home, but after Joseph showed it to me, he recommended another home nearby which was much better and almost at the same price. He helped my figuring out the offer price which was below the list price and the seller accepted it. The deal was closed quickly in 15 days and I am enjoying my new home now. I always heard buying the first home is a miserable experience, but Joseph made it so smooth, simple and amazingly painless that I didn't even feel like I was buying my first home. Amazing guy. Will do all my real estate deals with him only.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Frick, Oakland, CA.
in a nutshell, i found joseph to be patient, professional, ethical, responsive, and an advocate of my needs during this first-time home buying process. from the beginning, he spent much time with me answering each of my questions on the first home purchasers agreement form that was new to me, and this remained his style to the end. as i methodically visited homes with my 4-page checklist in hand, he never rushed me or my process as i looked at the house, wrote my notes, looked at things again, and asked him many questions. just as important, i neither felt negative judgment from him nor heard negative comments from him regarding the oakland area where i was looking for a home. additionally, i believe he worked just as diligently for me as he would have for a client buying a home 5x as much as mine cost. finally, he found ways to save me money throughout the process once my offer was accepted on the house, which was greatly appreciated. in closing, joseph was the 7th realtor i went through because i found others did not have his level of professionalism, ethics, and responsiveness that i require and/or made offensive comments about the area of where i was buying a home. i would HIGHLY recommend joseph to anyone in the market for a real estate professional.
Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $100K in Southgate, Hayward, CA.
I have worked with 3 real estate agents over the past 10 years and I have to admit that it is rare to come across someone like Joseph. The level of dedication, detail, patience, and follow-through that he delivered impressed me. The property I bought was a short-sale, taking 5 months of tedious work to close the deal; that said, this did not put a dent in Joseph's optimism and focus on the transaction. His pro-active approach to dealing with hurdles throughout the deal gave me peace of mind. I am thankful and fortunate to have worked with a true professional.

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to acknowledge your appreciation for the service I provided to you and your family. Your patience and trust in me, to help you through what can be a truly stressful transaction, was very much appreciated. Again, thank you :-)
This agent exemplified professionalism and dedication. The time he took to coordinate and facilitate the multiple homes we viewed were extremely valuable in my decision making process of one of the most important life decisions. Due to his extensive knowledge and experience, I believe I made the best decision for my family and I to work with him. I will be always grateful for his time and efforts and would without hesitation recommend his services to any of my friends or acquaintances.
