About Joe

Hello there! Welcome to my profile, and please feel free to read some of the many reviews that my fantastic clients have posted online. Maybe, you are looking to buy another home, or possibly sell your home..but you want to make sure that your experience is better than your last one. Or maybe, you are a first time home buyer, and you need an experienced agent that is willing to get into the gritty details- that will work hard to make sure that you are given every possible opportunity to succeed in an ever changing and challenging marketplace. Whatever the case, whatever your real estate need, it is clear that it takes an agent with energy, experience, and ultimately: a willingness to work hard, to give you the best chance to facilitate what could be the biggest sale, or purchase of your life. In just the past 5 years, I have sold over 500 homes, worked with over a thousand buyers, and shown almost 3000 homes. No buying or selling situation is the same, and believe me, as a 9 time home owner, I understand. My absolute goal for every client that I work for, is to make sure that my company is the last place they will ever have to visit to get the service and value they are looking for, and I MEAN it. Serving the people of Michigan in the real estate arena has been a dream come true for me, and I will continue striving to bring quality and equanimity to an experience that can often be marred with quantity and chaos. My goal in service to you is simple. I will be available. I will keep you informed. I will provide service that is built on value and integrity. I will go the "extra mile". I will provide the latest in technology and strategy to give you the best chance to succeed. I hope to hear from you! I am blessed to have been married to my incredible wife for nearly ten years, and am a father of three children whom I adore. My wife and I are both are passionate about our community and state, and give much of our time to serving and giving where we see a need. Michigan is a fantastic place to live, and we want to be a part of making it even better

It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Traverse City?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Traverse City to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Traverse City is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
