We got stuck between a rock and a hard place and needed to sell our home fast to save the equity we had. We contacted Joe and from day one he stayed in constant, daily communication with us via text, phone call, email, and personal visits. We put the home on the market the first week of December. After the first two open houses we had about 3 offers, all under our asking price. We began to accept the fact that we might not get what we were asking for and contemplated taking one of the low ball offers. Joe's strategy he offered at this point is what turned the tables for us. After the next weekend of open houses not only did we get more offers, but had people competing for the house. We ended up making way up and beyond what we were asking which helped us secure our new home in Placentia ( the city Joe knows like the back of his hand because he grew up here). I wouldn't ever use another person as my trusted real estate person other than Joe Delong. He literally saved our lives from ruin, Thanks Joe!
. We were confident that any thing that happened during our house sale was in the best of hands. We would certainly recommend him and would call him again when we decide to sell other properties.
In addition, he provided us with sound advice throughout the listing and selling process. What truly set Joe apart from other realtors was his willingness to go above and beyond our expectations in helping us present our home in the best light possible at a reasonable. We would recommend Joe to anyone considering buying or selling a home in Orange County without reservation.
Being that it was our first time ever purchasing a property, he was very helpful and insightful as to what to look for, what he thought we needed, and was very efficient when it came to paperwork. He was always willing to come out and look at a house with us, went to open houses with us (6 in one day!) and always gave his professional and unbiased opinion. I would recommend Joe to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.
He acted as our guide and advisor through the complicated and unfamiliar task of selling our ' family home'. Joe was always kind, professional, and exhibited great understanding and insight toward the home selling process. He anticipated each step along the way and was continually prepared! He organized and monitored open houses, acted as the go-between for property viewing by other agents, screened potential buyers for validity of offers, strategized marketing of property, printed up flyers, and distributed advertising through all available media venues. Joe diligently pitched in and helped refurbish the yard, install lighting fixtures, and went to incredible lengths to stage our home making it perfect for prospective buyers. The house sold very quickly thanks to all the hard work and effort on Joe's part. We would highly recommend Joe's expertise to any one needing to buy or sell a home. Such a nice person to work with!
He is honest and hard working. I have had the pleasure of handling the financing for mutual clients on many occasions. I always receive great feedback from each of them. If you are looking for a real estate agent who will take great care of you, you could not possibly do better than Joe Delong.
We moved here from San Diego so we needed someone with local knowledge and insight. Joe had it. He also knows the real estate business, bringing to our attention all the contractual details that worked to our advantage. Both Joe and his assistant Alia always made themselves available on short notice to show us homes as well. Great job all around!
We ad our house on the market for a while and Joe didn't give up on us. He found a buyer. Plus he helped us find our perfect house in the exact neighborhood we wanted.
From the beginning he was open, informative, and responsive to our needs. Joe spent quite a bit of time explaining the selling process, the specifics of our area/neighborhood, and what to consider in pricing our home. He made suggestions on how to best show our home, and even did a small amount of staging. Plenty of notice was given before visits by prospective buyers. During Open Houses Joe had a second realtor with him to make sure someone was able to supervise each floor. Joe was available any time we needed him, and was very personable and exceptionally easy to work with. The buyer's realtor happened to be very unresponsive and seemed uninterested in details and deadlines. Joe was persistent and firm and we closed on time--our house was in escrow within three weeks of putting it on the market. The whole process was exceedingly smooth and trouble free. Joe's calm and friendly character, efforts, knowledge, experience, and integrity orchestrated a perfect sell. Thank you, Joe!
Very personable and always followed up quickly. I have enjoyed a continued friendship and updates from him. I would recommend him to everyone who wants to buy or sell a property.
He was very knowledgeable and took time to find us the perfect home. I would recommend Joe to others for their house buying experience.
We are thankful for all the help extended to us during the sale nothing but smooth proceeding and a quick sell. I recommended this guy to my relatives and friends. Again I say thanks a lot for the help.
I have NEVER encountered another real estate professional that goes above and beyond the call of duty in a way only Joe has. Joe's expertise is right on target. His knowledge of the process and his care and compassion shine throughout his contact with clients and prospects. He is patient, thorough and persistent at the right times and he never gives up! He ALWAYS returns phone calls in a very timely manner and no question is an inconvenience. I am blessed to have Joe in my circle of trusted business partners and referral sources; I am never disappointed and feel honored to receive the care and treatment he gives me and mutual customers. Joe has earned every kind word many times over! He is a rare, honest, professional --- a true Class Act.
Joe saved us time and money by quickly and efficiently assisting us during every stage of the sales process. After helping us analyze our best marketing options, he provided the helpful information we needed and then assisted us with preparing and staging our home for sale. Through every stage of the process, Joe's professionalism and meticulous attention to detail were impressive. The result? After Joe worked closely with us through it all, we sold our home in just 5 days. We received the highest sales price recorded in our neighborhood since 2006. His great service didn't end with the sale, either. The day after we sold, Joe showed up at 6 am and helped us load our rental truck for the move to Arizona. After our excellent experience with Joe, he's now like a member of the family.
His style was exactly what we were looking for in an agent. Straight to the point and honest. Because of him we were able to sell our house and get into our dream home in a little over 2 months. Joe was always there when we needed him and was super responsive
He is honest. If he doesn't know the answer to your question he researches it and gets back to you promptly. He makes you feel like you are his only client. You are not pressured into "liking " a listing and he finds out what you like and helps you eliminate houses from your list. He also ensures you know any potential projects your new home will need so you can prioritize what you need versus what you would like to change. He doesn't rush you, gives great advice, knows the area and has a great sense of humor. His goal is that you are happy and I am a very happy customer!
From the time he listed, the tenants moved in exactly 1 month later. This 1 month process was during the month of September which is traditionally a difficult time to find renters as the school year has already begun. From the start I felt very comfortable working with him. He is very professional, courteous, knowledgeable and really knows his stuff. Communications were effortless and clear. I highly recommend him for anyone who is in need of a realtor that take care of you and get you the results you need.
He succeeded and found us a home that hadn't hit the open market yet which aloud us to be the first offer. We got the home If our dreams thanks to his negotiating skills and perseverance.
