Joe helped us purchase our latest house with an expertise that very few if any realtors could match. His understanding of the law and the process that had to occur, along with his excellent advice was masterful. I have 100 percent confidence in his skills and I would very highly recommend Joe to anyone seeking advice or considering selling or purchasing real estate.
We purchased two home from Joe this year as rental properties. He helped up after the sale with the rental agreements. That’s what I call really good service. If you need a good Realtor, and who doesn’t, I would go with Joe.
When we needed to sell our mother’s condo after her passing, we used Joe to list and sell the property. It was October 2008 at the start of the economic and real estate market collapse. Joe sold the condo in under 90 days for the price we were asking!!!
Joe is a very knowledgeable realtor with many years experience. He knows what he’s talking about and offers you the best advice possible! Joe was able to get us the best dollar amount we felt was possible with regards to selling our home. At the time, we were also considering purchasing a new home, but later decided not to after I received a new job offer in NJ. Joe is equally knowledgeable when it comes to purcashing a home and understanding the complexities of the physical house and is able to locate any potential problem areas in a home that may not be readily visible to the average homebuyer. Would definitely use Joe again!
My husband and I have known Joe for almost 20 years. He is honest, experienced and highly knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Lehigh Valley. Joe helped us purchase our new home. The purchase was not simple; it involved negotiations and a bidding process. If we did not have Joe helping us, we may not have succeeded in getting the home we wanted at a price we thought was fair. We achieved both through Joe’s expertise.
Joe McGavin found me a house with an assumable mortgage back in 1984. I didn’t have the down payment for a regular mortgage. And now my house is all most paid off. Thank you Joe.
Not only have I had the experience of hiring Joe McGavin for several real estate transactions, I have worked with him in his real estate office. He handled a complex commercial sale for my husband and I. We truly believe his expertise and his diligence made this sale possible. Any issues that arose were handled by Joe in an efficient and professional manner.
Having worked as Joe’s assistant, I witnessed first-hand his motivation to make sure that buyers/sellers are given the attention required to make sure that they get to the settlement table.
I have recommended Joe McGavin, and will continue to in the future, for any and all real estate transactions!
Joe helped us optimize the price for our house, and his marketing expertise with various channels–making great use of technology–got us very close to our asking price. We had multiple offers, and he was really helpful guiding us through the intricacies of qualifying the best offer–the one that closed on schedule with no hassles.
Working from a distance (Texas) I thought would pose many issues, however Joe and his partners were very thorough upfront, explaining all the possible senerios of our sale.
The expertise was obvious and then as we worked through the closing and final sale, I knew I was not only in good hand, but it was like I was family.
I cannot express how “above and beyond” this team went – being out of state was a logistical nightmare – but they were a dream to work with.
I would recommend Joseph McGavin to anyone and everyone.
I had a very positive experience with Joe McGavin as my realtor — he was very helpful in expediting the entire process of listing, showing, selling and closing my condominium in the summer of 2013. I would certainly recommend him highly to anyone thinking of buying or selling a house within the greater Lehigh Valley, where he has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the real estate market.
Good advice on pre-sale renovations and helped to coordinate contractors. He took care of bringing in the appropriate contractors to address issues arising from buyer’s inspection. He kept us informed of progress (we had already moved out of town). Very knowledgeable and professional while being very personable and pleasant to work with.
Joe sold me my first home over 30 yrs. ago. He also handled selling one of my investment properties about 5 yrs. ago. In all that time, Joe has also been honest, forthright, professional, knowledgeable and competent. His care and concern for clients, as well as his negotiating skills and expert real estate advice are unrivaled. I highly recommend Joe to anyone buying their first home, or their 100th! And, be it short sales, foreclosures, investment or commercial real estate, Joe knows all facets of his industry. He has always given me great advice and that has translated into dollars saved and dollars made!
I loved working with Joe. He and his team managed my house sale wonderfully and dealt with many tough situations on my behalf. He explained the various stages and kept me informed despite handling everything remotely for me while I was across the country.
Joe helped us list my mother’s house after we had moved her to DC. He was very professional, courteous, and willing to go the extra step. We were in a unique situation in that we were managing a sale from far away. Joe was willing to meet with contractors and others to let them in while we were away. He was able to get us more than what he started in our initial meeting, and above appraisal value. Finally, he added a wonderful personal touch by providing video and images of the house my mom was leaving behind.
If you are looking for a realtor that has incredible local knowledge, the desire to make sure your are getting the most bang for your buck as you chase down your dream house, look no further. Joe McGavin came on a recommendation to us and we could not have found better realtor. He was quick to respond, brought great suggestions to our thought processes and made the experience exceptional. When we lost one of the houses we were under contract on, which was no fault of Joe’s, he showed us over 11 properties in the span of 4 days so we could still find a place we loved. You will not be disappointed.
My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Joe for about 2 months in the effort to find our first home. Joe was always quick to respond and willing to take us to see any homes that we thought would be a good fit. Joe was very professional during our experience with him and appropriately challenged us to identify what we were looking for in a home and why we did or did not like certain properties. Using this approach helped both of us and Joe truly understand what we were looking for in a home. Ultimately, Joe found us the “perfect” home that met both of our wants/needs/wishes within our budget. It was a pleasure working with Joe and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home. We will be using Joe in the future if we decide to move.
Joe helped us purchase a home in Nazareth, PA. I cannot say enough good things about him as a person and a real estate professional. He was always available (even in the evenings and on weekends) and attentive to our needs, and we always felt like he had our best interest in mind.
Having a realtor that not only knows the area and understands the housing market, but also has a good understanding of the legal aspects of a home sale is important. Joe provided us with all of the above. He walked us through the entire process and made what is a very complicated transaction seem very simple.
Joe’s service-after-sale has been no different than his service during the purchase process. He has remained available and willing to help us with our questions and concerns that have popped up since we closed.
We would highly recommend Joe to anyone purchasing or selling property in or near the Lehigh Valley. He is a great realtor with a lot of integrity, and we are happy that we found him to help us with our first home purchase! We will definitely use his services again if we ever buy or sell homes in the future.
I relocated from MN to PA last summer. It was a challenge finding a real estate agent that was interested in helping me. I was stunned that after many inquiries, no “professionals” were interested in a cash deal. Yes, I was looking for something that fit a lower ticket price, but, one would think, a commission is a commission.
Joe responded to my inquiry and was optimistic and encouraging with my needs. His knowledge of the area (I got lost and needed to be escorted to a property), was much appreciated. He was always available and I felt that he made my search a priority. I had limited time to find a home and with Joe’s help, I found the perfect home for me in 20 day’s time. During the walk-through, he checked all of the lights and appliances to ensure they were in working order. After closing on the property, he allowed me to use his computer and helped me transfer and set up my utilities and internet accounts.
I love my home but if I ever have to move again, I will use Joe.
Very helpful, corporative, and trust worthy
You can depend on him. He’s very loyal.
He’s attentive to my needs and is working towards getting me my first home.
Very aggressive agent who gets houses sold rather quickly for a descent sale price. Has mastered the real estate sales business, knows the market and doesn’t leave one with any doubts about their sale and/or purchase.
My experience with Mr. Joe was very positive, he was professional, detailed, knowledgeable agent and answered all our concerns in timely manner. Everything went smooth. We bought our first home and we’re so happy with it. We highly recommended him to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property.
