Without a drop of exaggeration, I can say that Joel earned beyond a 5-star rating. Not only was he remarkably professional, well-organized and shockingly easy to talk to, he also nailed it on MANY fronts. Rapid in response time, very thorough and clear, alerted us of anything he felt was off or a  red flag — and arguably above all else, he educated and informed us without ever making us feel stupid. The man did a stellar job, and he is quite frankly the only aspect of the home buying process that we have zero complaints about. And the kicker: he went well beyond his job description, and continues to do so. He has given me advice and help, simply as someone experienced in the industry, and it has helped immensely. Highly recommend. Snag him if you can.
