Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
Joe knows the market -- and he will always give you an honest opinion - even if it is one you don't really want to hear. In addition to his property prowess, his "little black book" of resources comes in VERY handy when renovation times comes along. His contacts are more than reason to do business with him! As an added bonus, he is laid back and puts his talents to work for the city in his spare time.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
Joe is more than a realtor: he is a human encyclopedia of what you need to know about neighborhoods, houses, and quirks in construction or functions--all dispensed with candor and humor. He was an honest, patient, and delightful collaborator in ensuring my finding place I love to live. New to the state and slightly less than organized, I benefited greatly from Joe's knowledge of Memphis and tenacious attention to detail.

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Downtown, Memphis, TN.
Joe Spake is an excellent realtor. He was very responsive and prompt to all emails, calls, and property viewings. He was honest and trustworthy in all business dealings. His priority is to serves the client best interest and not just to make a sale which I find to be very refreshing. His knowledge of building materials and quality of the features was important in determining value of the price and in negotiations. He also recommend an excellent team to assist in the procurement of the house, financing, and inspections. The entire experience was stress free. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a honest, experienced realtor in Memphis.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
Joe helped me through all of the stages of buying a home for the first time. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the Midtown area and homes on the market. He was also very patient in explaining the process of buying a home, step-by-step and giving me an idea of what I could reasonably expect in my modest price range.

Definitely recommended for all first time buyers looking in Midtown or downtown Memphis.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $100K in East Memphis-Colonial-Yorkshire, Memphis, TN.
While looking for homes online I requested agent assistance and was SO lucky that my click brought me to Joe Spake. Though I have bought homes in the past, this one was different because I was looking for a long-term investment. Joe has been amazing! He has offered advice about fair market value versus listing price. The home that caught my eye is 100 years old and although dated and in need of some TLC, Joe smartly suggested having tradesmen examine the HVAC, the chimney, etc. Joe offered advice about renegotiating the price and executed this deal with ease. He provided me with contact info for contractors and trades people who were prompt and efficient. I could not be happier with the results of this home search. In fact, if all goes well this next year, I may well be looking to purchase again and Joe will be the person I call.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $200K in Midtown, Memphis, TN.
I just bought my first home with the help of Joe Spake. His local knowledge and patience were invaluable, as I am not a local Memphian. I'm sure I needed more help than the average homebuyer, since I wasn't really sure what I wanted until we got started. Joe was patient, knowledgeable about neighborhoods and had great instincts about homes and what I would need.

I appreciated that Joe was attentive but not pushy, and I felt comfortable with him from the very first day we looked at homes. He was also very helpful throughout the sales process - from what to expect from the mortgage brokers to the inspectors, and was very helpful with references for local contractors. I would highly recommend Joe for your home search.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $75K in East Memphis-Colonial-Yorkshire, Memphis, TN.
Joe Spake is our go-to guy for all things real estate! His easygoing manner along with extensive knowledge and experience make it a pleasure to work with him. Joe provided sensible advice throughout the entire process of repairs/updates and staging thus helping us make the most of these investments and avoiding pitfalls of unnecessary overspending. As preparation for closing progressed, he kept us informed and advised us appropriately so that closing the sale was seamless. Even in a competitive real estate market, our home sold within one month of initial listing.
