  • Joel helped me buy a home

      Joel Stieber of Keller Williams was outstanding. I was a home buyer in 2021 and Joel's professionalism and support enabled me to find and close on a home in an extremely tough housing market. Joel quickly understood exactly what I was looking for and he helped narrow my focus into specific neighborhoods and home styles. With Joel's availability and responsiveness I was easily able to arrange multiple in-person home walkthroughs on short notice (back when open houses were rare). Most of the homes we viewed were on the market for less than 10 days with almost all homes having offer dates within one week of listing. Joel was always able to give me access to these homes (including disclosures) on short notice working around my schedule. Additionally Joel and his team were excellent throughout the closing process answering all my questions, providing new home owner recommendations, and easing all my concerns.

    • Joel helped me buy a home

        I found Joel online through a real estate website. I was in the process of buying my 1st home here in San Jose. As a 1st time home buyer, the process can be stressful if you do not have the right guidance. We were able to secure a fantastic property in San Jose in a highly competitive market. Joel was able to secure the deal and beat out 8 offers. Joel was able to answer all my questions about the contract and the options if the house did not appraise properly(House did appraise). In the end, the deal went very smoothly and I own my1st starter home. I would highly recommend Joel and his services.

      • Joel helped me buy a home

          The Bay Area real estate market is intense to say the least. As a 1st time home buyer I needed someone that I could trust to guide me, and Joel and his lender colleague Luis did so. We got our offer accepted in a multiple offer situation. However when the house did not appraise, the deal became a stressful process. Joel and Luis stayed calm and proactive the whole time. We ended up finding a creative solution to get a new appraisal completed and everything was back on track. In the end, the deal went very smoothly and I own my 1st starter home. I would highly recommend Joel to anyone looking to buy a home.

        • Joel listed and sold my home

            Joel Stieber Realty was recommended to us by my in-laws realtor (who didn't work in the Morgan Hill area). We began talking to Joel about the sale of my condo almost a year before we decided to list it. Joel was patient, didn't push us to list it before we ready, and was available to answer any questions we had. Once we decided to list it, Joel continued to be patient and answered all questions we had (and we had a lot!). We listened to his advice, and my condo had multiple offers within days of listing. We closed escrow about a month after we listed it, and couldn't be more pleased with the entire process. We highly recommend Joel Stieber to any person looking for a realtor!

          • Joel helped me buy a home

              We bought our home in 2021 and Joel helped us in every step of the way. Joel was outstandingly patient in working with us and our desires. What I loved about Joel is his urge to not leave any stone unturned. He was there with us throughout the buying process. Bay area real estate market is crazy but he was patient enough to guide us through all the technical details of what went into buying the right house. He worked tirelessly after hours to discuss about homes and any questions we had. It was a real pleasure to work with him and I hope to stay in touch for any future prospects!

            • Joel helped me buy a home

                We are first time home buyers and Joel helped us find our first house together. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He listened to what we wanted in a house and then gave us great advice on where we should look to find it. For each house we looked at, he gave us valuable insights. He was very responsive and responded quickly with any questions we had. With his help, we found our dream home only after our third offer. We highly recommend Joel for anyone looking for a real-estate agent.

              • Joel helped me buy a home

                  Joel was incredibly honest and straightforward in my home buying process. He advised us professionally and as brother on the best way to secure our home. Joel was always ready when called by the builders for meetings and information. He never pushed or hurried us up like most realtor but kept us up to date with what we needed to know. We closed our home and moved in with easy and he checked on us after we have moved in if all was good. I would recommend Joel to anyone for his honesty and trustworthiness.

                • Joel helped me buy a home

                    Joel is an amazing real estate agent. He helped us find our home in San Jose. As first time home buyers, we really didn’t know much about house buying when we started looking. Before we hired Joel as our agent, during the exploratory call, he spent hours of his valuable time teaching us how the whole house buying process work, showing us what a contract would look like, and answering our questions. His knowledge and sincereness put us at ease so we decided to hire Joel as our real estate agent. And that turned out working great for us! Joel had been extraordinarily patient with us and available to us every step along the way. My husband and I are not the most decisive people. A couple months in, we switched the decision on neighborhood we wanted to buy in, in the middle of our search. Joel was not annoyed or upset with us, he was always able to make time for us, and spent many hours visiting houses with us. Joel is very diligent and resourceful. He is very well connected and every time we go visit a house with him, he always gave us insights on how the marketing is trending. He was able to find multiple off-market houses for us to visit. And the end, we preemptively bid on our house. Even though we bid a lot over listing price (the nature of the bay area housing market), Joel was able to help us bid just a little bit higher than the second best offer and got our house. Joel provided us a very smooth house buying process, and we highly recommend him to future home buyers looking for a real estate agent.

                  • Joel listed and sold my home

                      Joel went WAY above and beyond our expectations on the sale of our home! From coordinating the photos, videos, 3D virtual tours, custom website, and walking us through the marketing and comp process - his work ethic and attention to detail were on point. He even made himself available to show our home to a last-minute prospective buyer at 10 pm the night before offer day. It was an emotional process for us, so I absolutely appreciated the care that he took to make our house shine. Thank you, Joel, for all of your hard work.

                    • Joel listed and sold my home

                        Joel Stieber of Keller Williams was fantastic, and he was absolutely money well spent. We started working with Joel after a previous investor arrangement went badly and found ourselves in a very unhappy place with “real estate professionals” in general. As we began again to review real estate agents to sell our family home in South San Jose, there were many agents to choose from and we selected Joel and the Keller Williams team because we felt they were best positioned to understand where we were coming from, had the knowledge of the area and the experience to prepare, stage and present our home in its best light. Joel presented us with solid suggestions for positioning our house to sell. He backed those suggestions up with clear analytics and analysis on what the likely impact on sales price for selling “as is” vs. minor remodeling vs. major remodeling. He provided sound advice but listened to how we ultimately wanted to sell our home. Joel and Keller Williams really shined when at one point in this process, the prior investor whom we had legally severed our relationship with, made threats of a lawsuit to pressure us to sell to him. Joel and the Keller Williams team stepped up to provide legal advice and support. They even went so far as to screen and suggest attorneys to cover the personal lawsuit from this previous investor on our family. We are incredibly happy with Joel Stieber and Keller Williams and felt we received excellent advice and representation which culminated in great sales price for our family home along with an easy sale close. I strongly and wholeheartedly recommend Joel Stieber.

                      • Buying a home (in this area especially) felt like an uphill battle. I had lost out several times in the past year and was losing hope on my search. Then came Joel -- just three weeks later, I was moving into my new place! Joel made the experience of buying my first home an AMAZING one! He was detailed, passionate, intense, and effective. He was incredibly thorough from start to finish - always reachable and responsive. I even received a sweet/thoughtful gift basket after closing.If your looking to buy in the area - Joel is your guy!!!!!

                      • Ada and I met Joel last year while looking at houses in the Bay Area. Our situation was not the usual buyer as I am a veteran using a VA loan. Joel worked with us customizing our search down to our specific appeal and desired location. Before we knew it, we were closing on a house in a high demand area with a VA loan! What an accomplishment! Thanks Joel for sticking with us and seeing this through! You're one of a kind!

                        - Thomas and Ada
                      • Safe to say if it wasn't for Joel there was no way this deal would have gone through. Above and beyond is a understatement. Trying to buy a house for the first time in Silicon Valley is a battle! Joel didn't hesitate to do everything he could to finalize the deal, doing other people's jobs in order to expedite the processes that others said were impossible or taking too long. Joel's calm and calculated approach to potential issues was very much needed as this process got very frustrating at times dealing with lenders, agents, and title companies. Since I was completely green to the whole process Joel took the time to first explain and then walk me through and even taking care of things before they became a problem. It took 3 months to clear all the issues on the sellers side and I can 100% say I would not be in my house if it wasn't for Joel's tenacity! This dude is hungry and very knowledgeable and will do everything in his power to make things happen! Thank you again Joel for everything!

                      • I met Joel when I went to see a property he was showing. Joel was very attentive and took great interest in learning about me and what I was looking for in a home. He was honest, straight-forward and genuine. My interaction with Joel on that day told me he was a realtor that I could trust and he would go out of his way to help me find my home. And that is exactly what he did! Given I was new to the whole process, Joel kicked things off with a meeting in his office to explain what I could expect through the process. I quickly learned that buying a home is hectic, and Joel was fantastic in managing all the craziness that came my way (making fast offers, timely counteroffers, signing tons of docs, etc.). Joel went above and beyond to help me buy my dream home, especially after I ruptured a disc in my lower back right in the middle of the buying process. Joel managed everything for me and kept me well informed the whole way through. He was always willing to talk me through the logistics of the different stages and would take my calls at any time convenient for me. He always made me feel like a priority. It was great knowing Joel had my best interests in mind, and his professionalism, negotiating skills and overall market knowledge make him a strong asset to have in your corner.When I'm ready for a change, we will certainly reach out to Joel again. If you're looking to get yourself a new home, Joel knows how to win!

                      • Did a couple of Transactions with Joel and he was excellent. Very detailed oriented and a strong negotiator. It is apparent that he takes the time know his market. Also appreciated he caring beyond the transaction.

                      • Buying a house is a very stressful experience in the Bay Area. I've heard terrible stories about people's experiences in dealing with Real Estate Agents. The worry and anxiety of the whole transaction can be over whelming. However, from the first moment I met Joel Stieber I knew he was the right fit. He constantly exceeded my expectations and at all times was professional, friendly and patient with helping me understand the whole process. They were quick to answer all my questions sent to them via email or they immediately called me back when I left a message. The offer we wrote was very thoughtful and creative. It ended up making a huge difference in getting our offer accepted in this competitive market. I have already recommended few friends who are just as thrilled with them as I have been. If you are looking for a good Realtor, please give him a call.

                      • Joel is quite awesome, I and my wife were interested in buying a house and we reached out to Joel. We are happy that we met him, he seemed to be friendly, warm and genuinely interested in helping us move forward. I also liked the fact that he was pretty clear in his communication and has a good understanding of the housing market in bay area.Joel took the time to understand our needs and he explained to us what would be a right sized house given the budget we had in mind.Fairly quickly we found the set of houses that met our needs and had Joel accompany us to the open houses.Once we short listed the place, we quickly put out an offer which was accepted, thanks to Joel things went on fairly smoothly.About a month later we moved into our new house.There is no doubt in my mind that Joel was a key element in getting all of this done. I want to thank him for his diligence and hard work so efficiently and at such a short notice.

                      • Joel is the best at what he does. He is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to real estate. He goes above and beyond for his clients. Joel sold our home and helped us find another. He brought in a professional staging company, his assistant helped set up all inspections in a timely fashion. My husband and I were searching for a new home for several months. Through out the entire time, I cannot express how much patience and effort Joel put into our search. Even when we gave up hope, Joel always gave us hope. He will never say no to his clients, yet advices them for what is best for their needs. He is always available for any questions, recommendations and advice. He works with your schedule and your availability. We finally have our forever home, thanks to Joel.

                      • Joel was super professional, and flexible when he helped us find our new home in Hollister. So much so that my wife recommended him to her parents when they were looking for a agent to sell their home. He did not disappoint and provided excellent service for them as well. If you're looking a top quality real estate agent in the south Bay Area look no further!

                      • Holly and I met Joel when he was showing a house several months before we decided to get serious about purchasing a home. We had been looking around here and there, casually getting our feet wet. After travelling around San Jose and meeting a handful of realtors, we felt like Joel was a good fit for us and when we were ready we decided to contact him.Joel did a great job explaining everything to us, what the market was like, what to expect during the process, and worked with us providing his expertise when deciding on how much we should offer. He also spent some time getting to know us and our interests so that he could tell our story to the sellers. Humanizing the process really helped especially considering that we were in the process of purchasing our future home, and the sellers appreciated that as well. It was not just a simple transaction, and Joel seemed well aware of that. He also made sure that he was available whenever we had questions or concerns and he checked in with us regularly. Overall, I'd say that Joel is professional yet personable and down-to-earth, and will work hard for you in order to make the best offer possible when you are ready to purchase a home. He's got solid presentation skills, and our first offer was accepted! He even connected us with a great mortgage broker and mover. We couldn't be happier with our new home, and would highly recommend Joel to anyone.

                      • I worked with Joel to sell a property in Almaden Valley. He was very professional and timely in all responses. We were impressed with how courteous he was all the while providing exceptional tips for staging, advertising and eventually selling. I would use and highly recommend Joel anytime!

                        - Carol
                      • When Fred and I met Joel we where very upset and been looking for a realtor that would do what we wanted. It had been 5 months and where starting to get scared we wouldn't find someone to help us. Joel was our hero! Calm us down and said he would help us find a home that we wanted. He asked us if we had gone to see any homes we liked. We told him about one we like. Price was in our budget and we really liked it. He said well let's make a offer if you are ready explained the process most of all he wanted us to make our own choices not him! Well the seller excepted the offer and within 30 days we signed off and got our keys! As senior citizens we where really scared and Joel took us under his wing and made everything safe again! Kept us informed almost every day and was always there to answer questions or concerns we might of had. If you need to buy or sell a home he is the one to go to! He is the best!
