Joanne Shapse's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Joanne Shapse

    • We couldn't have asked for a better agent to represent us in purchasing our first home. Joanne knows the area like the back of her hand, and in addition to guiding us through the co-op purchase process seamlessly, she also provided us with contacts for everything we could need after we moved in. She is knowledgeable, responsive, and so much fun to work with. Our only regret in working with Joanne is that we couldn't spend more time with her - she found us the perfect home that quickly!

    • I could not have been happier with my homebuying experience with Joanne in our corner. As first-time homebuyers, my wife and I needed to work with someone that we believed was trustworthy, knowledgeable and ultimately had our best interests at heart and Joanne assuredly ticked all of those boxes. She was never afraid to provide her opinion and was adept at learning our needs and refining her search accordingly. Once we found our home, her negotiation skills and her long-built Rolodex of service providers were invaluable in getting us smoothly from start to finish (even pushing the offering process through while at the movie theater, I'm sure much to her family's chagrin). While we hope to be in our home for a long time, if and when we are ready to make a move, we will definitely be calling Joanne.

    • I highly recommend Joanne to work with on the sale or purchase of your residence. As a longtime resident of Westchester, Joanne is extremely knowledgeable about the market on a professional and personal level. She is extraordinarily committed to her clients, ensuring their needs are met at the right price and on the best terms. Joanne represented me on the purchase of a residential condominium for my father and, based on my experience and recommendation, represented several friends and business associates moving to and from Westchester. In fact, one friend bought and sold multiple homes with Joanne. That says it all!

    • I can't say enough good things about Joanne Shapse. She expertly and professionally helped us price, ready, market and negotiate the sale of our home in White Plains. There is the old adage, measure twice & cut once - well, the preparations were on point and the house sold on day one. My sense was that Ms. Shapse has good knowledge of the area and I would hire her if we were to search for a home as well.

    • HANDS DOWN THE BEST REALTOR! You need to look no further. Joanne is THE EXPERT! She is smart, resourceful, very knowledgeable, extremely professional, responds immediately to all communications (text, phone, email, facetime), bends over backwards to accommodate your busy schedule, talks any time of the day or night, and is a wonderful negotiator. She is patient and takes to time to understand what you want and takes you to those homes. She makes smart recommendations and is very honest which is a tough trait to find. I recommend her without reservation and she found us our dream home in our #1 choice school district for our twins. WE are delighted with our new home and ecstatic about the professional service we received from Joanne Shapse. House hunting and moving from Manhattan is tough when your working and she made it seamless with stellar recommendations at every step.

    • Joanne helped us seal the deal on our dream home. We spotted the house on her website and knew we wanted to view it. But Joanne didn't stop there - she picked our brains about what we wanted and didn't want, she shared her intimate knowledge of Scarsdale, and showed us not only the one house, but also several other houses in the area in the same price range to give us perspective. We were able to make an offer with more confidence. She was knowledgable and professional during the contract and inspection process, and most important, got the deal done! We highly recommend her!

    • Joanne was a fabulous broker. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, found homes that met our needs and got us started in a new neighborhood. She helped us through the entire process from inspection through closing and even helped us find various contractors. She gave us great advice and became a friend. We would highly recommend her!

    • You need to look no further, you have found your realtor. Joanne Shapse is by far the BEST realtor in Scarsdale and the surrounding areas! Hands down!! We have worked with several realtors so we would know. She is a native of Scarsdale and the expert of that town. She also commands the surrounding towns. If she does not know an area you want to look at, she will refer you to a stellar realtor who does. She was recommended to me by a colleague who bought a home with her and my colleague told me I would love her and we do! We left NYC to find a better school and quality of life for our children. Joanne made this a reality for us. She has a wonderful personality, TONS of patience, and great ideas and vision. She drove us around for MANY hours the first day we met and taught us the town of Scarsdale. She taught us everything we needed to know. This was a necessity! We told her what we ideally wanted and she took us to properties we definitely wanted to see. She also showed us comparison properties which were helpful, both above and under our range. These viewings helped us decide. At first, we were hesitant of realtors but with Joanne we got over that feeling very quickly. She is lots of fun and house hunting is very stressful, so this helps a ton. She is understanding and accessible 24 hours a day and I mean it. We work a ton of hours and emailed her at wee hours in the morning and night and always received a quick response. She always picks up her phone and calls you back immediately. She is stellar on text and emails. As soon as a property listed, I would receive it. Then, I would email her what I wanted to see and she always made it happen right away. We live in NYC and she was always available to us no matter our schedule and was very accommodating to us having to drive up. She has positive energy and when she promises she will find you the house for you, she delivers. She knows how to negotiate and is an expert in the process of finding and purchasing a home. It seems like she knows everyone in Scarsdale and can get you inspectors and experts in a moments time. I would recommend Joanne without reservation. She will be the realtor to sell our home, when we are ready, and help us buy our next one. She found us our dream home and we are eternally grateful to her for this.
