  • Joe worked with me as an Escrow Officer

      Joel always has his customers best interest as his primary focus. He has a proven track record to keep everyone on the same page, on task and on time. I can honestly say that he is one of the best realtors I have ever had the pleasure to work with!

    • Joe listed and sold my home

        excellent! good guy,good team! I would use only him. I would highly recommend him to ALL! He sold my house the first day on the market!

      • Joe helped me buy a home

          Joe is a real gem! Joe was always a step ahead and educated us on the process along the way. He was a strong advocate for us during the process and it didn’t stop on closing day. He helped us through warranty issues as well. You can’t go wrong with Joe!

        • Joe helped me buy a home

            Joe is very knowledgeable. He is thorough, easy to work with, and makes difficult contracts easy breezy.

          • I would like to highly recommend Rock Springs Realty and Joe Bornstein if you are selling your home. Joe is professional, caring and knowledgeable. I had previously used a well-known-to-the-area realtor and I became so frustrated that I took it off the market after a year with no hope of ever selling it. I had several issues with my home after owning it for 20 years. When I contacted Joe, he calmly handled the issues and put my mind at ease as he took those problems out of my hands. Well, before I knew it, Joe had a buyer! I sold my home for the price I wanted and the whole process was amazingly painless. Joe has truly mastered his chosen profession. Thank you Joe, for everything you have done for me. I sincerely appreciate your hard work!

          • Kathy and I want to thank you for all your help with the purchase of our new home in Rock Springs Ridge. Picking the house was the easy part, having your support with all the contract and inspection issues was a great bonus to us. We couldnt have done it without your help! Thanks again! Well gladly send anyone we know that needs a Realtor your way. Rock Springs Ridge, Apopka, FL

          • Joe is an extremely knowledgeable and talented Realtor. He knows how to get results! Our family hired Joe for both selling one home and purchasing another. We were very HAPPY working with him. Joe is one of the BEST Realtors we have worked with and he did a wonderful job making the selling/buying process as smooth as possible.

          • After 12 wonderful years of raising our family in Rock Springs Ridge, we decided it was time to downsize. We interviewed several Realtors and decided that Joe was exactly the Realtor we needed to represent us and our home. He came to the (kitchen) table with all of the pertinent facts and figures we needed to price our home competitively, and backed it all up when we had a contract in less than a week! He is a hard-working, professional Realtor as well as a good guy, and we would recommend him in a heartbeat!

          • There just aren't enough superlatives to describe Joe Bornstein's involvement in our new home purchase. Joe was with us every step of the way, explaining things that we didn't understand, and asking questions that we didn't even know we should've asked. He advocated for us through the entire process. Joe was with us at every meeting with the builders/contractors, ensuring that everything was exactly the way we wanted. Joe was passionate in his desire to ensure that we were as informed as possible. He relentlessly researched different avenues of home ownership for us and was a valuable advisor over the last several months as we eventually arrived at closing day. Joe's sincerity, warmth, and passion makes it easy for me to recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. Thanks Joe for everything.

            - Laurie & Bruce Wirsu
          • Joe really knows what he's doing and he does it well! Not only did he help us sell our home quickly, but he helped us with the purchase of our new home in Wekiva, FL. He was always so easy to work with and extremely knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a reliable and dedicated Realtor. He is the best!

            - Robert & Megan Labrunda
          • After months of searching for a home on our own, picking up the phone and calling Joe was the best thing that we could have ever done. With the both of us being second time home buyers, we thought we knew what we were doing. What very little did we still not know. Joe had our best interest from the very beginning and assured that we were happy and satisfied with our new construction home. His acknowledgement of the daily grinds with our home being built to the continuous paper work that headed our way to the many questions we had, we knew Joe was just an email or phone call away. Joe is a man that truly knows his job and is very good at it. Not only is he very professional and tactful at his job, he is also very honest and personable to the people he is working with. With Joe being by our side the whole way, not only did we move into a beautiful home we could only dream of. We also moved into a neighborhood with someone we could always count on and call a friend. Thanks Joe, we really couldn't have done this without you. Thanks for everything!

          • PREPARATION - We met with you and another real estate agent before deciding which agent we wanted to work with. Basically you won the game during that first meeting. When we saw the work you did and the time you spent preparing for our first meeting, the reference material you brought with you to share with us, the clarity of your presentation and the confidence you exhibited during the meeting showed us that you were the right man for the job. You won the contest that day on our dining table.EXECUTION / ACTION - But you didn't stop there; that was just the beginning. You immediately proceeded to prepare for the marketing of the home. The website you developed specifically for our property was first class. Your idea of quantifying and highlighting the extras we added to the house when we purchased was a brilliant move. The fact that you took the time to develop an Excel spreadsheet with all the details and cost figures showed me that you were going to work hard to sell our home.COMMUNICATION - I believe one of the key aspects of any relationship or agreement is open and effective communication. You definitely excelled on this part as well. You always kept us informed and in the loop of what was going on with the showings. Your feedback from other agents after showings was very important as it gave us a good measure of how marketable our home was. Once again, thanks for everything you did during these last 3 months to sell our home. Sincerely, Olga Lucia Neira & Freddie Cintron, Wekiva Run, Apopka, FL

          • "Joe is a fantastic Realtor and he is extremely knowledgeable about real estate. He helped me and my family sell our home as well as purchase a new home. I would highly recommend him, and anytime I am in need of any real estate transaction, questions, etc., he is the one I will contact. If you are looking for an honest, hardworking, ethical, & knowledgeable real estate agent, look no further than Joe. Thank You Joe!" Eagle Dunes Country Club, Sorrento Springs, Sorrento, FL

          • Joe Bornstein at Rock Springs Realty is the best Realtor in all of Florida. My wife and I started looking for a home to purchase as newlyweds & first time home buyers. We started our search in the Apopka area, so we found Joe's website and gave him a call. Right away Joe was looking to take care of business. He put us in touch with a mortgage broker to see what our budget was and got a pre-approval letter just in case we needed to make a move on a property. There was zero pressure EVER to decide on a house, in fact Joe always told us to sleep on things and not get emotionally attached to anything as we shopped. That paid off big time for us. We ended up waiting another couple of months before we got serious about buying. We started looking at other areas of Central Florida, and realized how knowledgeable Joe really was with not only the Apopka area, but all over Central Florida.We ended up finding a house and community we liked in the Lake Nona area. So we went with Joe and he walked through every house we looked at and checked everything very thoroughly to make sure everything seemed in its place. It turns out Joe also has experience in the contracting side of home building as well...great for us! After we decided on the house to go after, which was a brand new D.R. Horton home, we told Joe what we expected to pay and he went to work. He spent the evening researching info and analyzing data. When we went to meet with the sale rep, Joe showed up with his boxing gloves and a body bag. He hit him with a right to the head, then an uppercut to the body, and before we knew it the rep was out cold!!! Not only did Joe do better on the price than we were expecting, but he also got them to throw in about 8k in extras!!! Our relationship didn't end there. Knowing that we were very inexperienced in the home buying process, Joe asked if he could come to closing to make sure that the mortgage company, the builder, and the title company all had there T's crossed and I's dotted. Joe went above and beyond any other Realtor that I have ever heard of.We recommend Joe and his staff at Rock Springs Realty to all of our friends and anyone else looking for a real estate broker that can wear every hat needed to make sure that you are taken care of. Thanks Joe for making our home buying experience a smooth and exciting adventure.

          • I would recommend Joe Bornstein to anyone needing help on a real estate transaction. I have known Joe for six years and have had his help to purchase and also sell a home. He is extremely professional and ethical in his business demeanor; but also deals with his clients in a helpful, friendly manner. I have recommended him often and will never use anyone else for a real estate transaction. I seriously can't think of a thing I would change about him! Country Club of Mount Dora, Mt. Dora, FL

          • Joe Bornstein ROCKS! We had our home listed in Rock Springs Ridge for over 100 days with another Realtor who only had limited showings and could not get it sold. Then we decided to switch to Joe at Rock Springs Realty and in less than two week, Joe had us under contract with a "CASH" Buyer and we ended up closing two weeks later. From start to finish, Joe delivered the results he promised and the total process took less than 30 days. We truly appreciate all your help and guidance and would highly recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.

          • If you need a Realtor that will work hard for you, who is knowledgeable, organized, timely, and keeps you in the loop about everything that is going on, then Rock Springs Realty is the place to call. We selected Joe to sell our house for us. The listing was amazing. Six days later, it was off market and we were in contract. It listed February 1st and we closed February 26th. The process was made easy for us because of Joe. After a week of working with Joe, he earned the name Super Joe. The real estate market is complex and you need a team who will protect you. For the rest of our lives, our Realtor will be Joe...forever grateful.

          • We came across the perfect house...but were very reluctant to move toward purchasing it without our current home even on the market and the fear of having two mortgages. It was my third visit to this dream home when I was given Joe Bornsteins name and phone number.My husband and I met with Joe who immediately did his research and analysis on the home we were planning to sell. He had the marketing of the home professionally put together with advice on staging as well as pictures that were sure to catch a Buyers eye. Needless to say within 24 hours of the house going on the market we had multiple offers. Our home sold right away for the total asking price.While handling the sale of our current home, Joe was also busy making sure we got the deal of a lifetime from the seller of what was to be our new home. We walked away with thousands of dollars in upgrades and incentives. Joe made himself available 24/7 for all our questions and concerns, we were never left to feel pressured, he is very knowledgeable in his field and whether there were other clients or not we were made to feel like we were the only ones.Joe is honest and personably, his sense of humor brings sunshine on a cloudy day. Joe sold and helped us purchase our home within the same month; his level of professionalism definitely exceeded our expectations. My husband and I would personally like to recommend Joe Bornstein of Rock Springs Realty if youre in the market for an honest, dedicated agent.
