Stories of our clients' successes!

  • "I Feel Lucky to Have Run into Joseph!"

    Joseph was an insightful, attentive, and efficient agent who worked tirelessly to find, show, and make offers on homes that we loved! He was extremely flexible with his schedule and made each step in the home buying process easy, from expediently contacting sellers to using his network of professionals in the industry to give us good advice and excellent service. I feel lucky to have run into Joseph, and we know we can rely on him in the future for any real estate questions we have.

  • "I'm Very Happy with the Personal Service That Joseph Provided!"

    I recommend using Joseph as your Realtor, you won't be disappointed! Joseph helped me sell my Queen Anne condo, a very bittersweet and emotional thing for me personally. I moved away from Seattle, had renters in the unit and was not in town during the whole process. He took ca re of everything and I really appreciated how he continually checked in on me just to make sure I was feeling good. He really went the extra mile in researching the market to ensure a fair price, actually visiting similar units and talking to neighbors rather than just pulling comps. He ensured that the tenants were treated respectfully, not inconvenienced, and that their needs were met. During offer negotiations, he came up with creative ideas so that both parties felt good about the sale. He performed all activities with honesty and respect and, while I'm sad to let the unit go, I'm very happy with the personal service that Joseph provided.

  • "He Has Earned Our Trust and Our Highest Recommendation!"

    Joseph is an outstanding agent and we unequivocally recommend him. Firstly, he is professional, trustworthy and honest. We were first time buyers of commercial property and Joseph patiently showed us many different buildings over an extended period of time. He was always available for questions, and we never felt pressure from him to move forward, ever. Secondly, he knows the commercial real estate market inside and out and was willing to share his expertise freely with us. As new investors, we depended on Joseph’s thorough, critical analysis of each property we evaluated. He was forthcoming with whatever issues or concerns he saw, whether it was with our ability to handle a challenging property or whether he had doubts about the building, the property or the sale. His perspectives were simply invaluable. Joseph is also an astute and sharp negotiator. He has incredible judgement on how and when to drive a bargain. As such, he was able to bring the price down from our initial offering significantly. He also provided excellent oversight, so that all the transactions moved forward smoothly. Joseph’s breadth of experience is matched only by his insightfulness about human nature and he knows how to apply this to his client’s benefit. Finally, Joseph is all about building long term relationships with his clients. He has continued to support us long after we closed on our building and certainly long after his obligations to us were officially over. He willingly has shared with us management strategies, referrals for handymen, documents, templates and always, always, his great advice. He was, and remains, a fantastic mentor for which we are incredibly grateful. Because of his long term commitment to us, we have been able to successfully transition into an entirely new field of endeavor and when we move on to acquire more properties we wouldn’t think to ask anyone else for help. We have nothing but gratitude for the time and effort Joseph has put into helping us find a commercial rental property. He has earned our trust and our highest recommendation.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph Goldberg is an exceptional Realtor and I can't say enough good things about him as a professional and as a person. His assistance and guidance were instrumental in our purchase which otherwise we were not doing. His deep knowledge and understanding of the market backed by easy to understand charts and lots of invaluable tips, helped us a lot in deciding on buying the rental property which we are very happy about. Joseph has several rental properties and has an incredible 'on the ground' experience with buying, remodeling and renting apartment in the Seattle area. Furthermore, Joseph provided us with valuable advice on how to get ahead with the purchase in a strong sellers market. His assistance did not end there. He provided us with a lot of guidance on how to get started as landlords. I highly recommend Joseph Goldberg!

  • "He Was Always More Focused on Answering Our Questions"

    We were so fortunate to have found Mr. Joseph Goldberg when we decided to buy an investment property in Seattle, Washington. As our Realtor, he helped us to find the right properties in the right neighborhood for the good price. He was patient as I traveled from San Francisco, California to look at properties.

    In short, he was always on our side working to make our investment property purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Mr. Goldberg was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding properties that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to everyone.

  • "Joseph Helped Me Buy My First Condo"

    Joseph helped me buy my first condo. I was referred to him through an online listing search engine. My transaction was straightforward but Joseph adeptly guided me through the process. He identified the few leverage points in getting my offer accepted, one of which was offering a fast close time. He identified and addressed my personal concerns by, for example, referring me to a condo consultant to help review the HOA documents in a timely manner.

  • "Joseph is Very Knowledgeable!"

    Joseph is very knowledgeable of the greater Seattle area and made looking/buying painless. Readily available by phone or in person, punctual, and friendly. His sound advice and shrewd negotiating made buying our first rental property super easy. Will use Joseph again and strongly recommend to friends and family.

  • "We Will Definitely Use His Services Again and Recommend Him to All Our Friends!"

    We were looking for a real estate rental investment property. Joseph helped us to buy a nice condo in Fremont. Joseph has an intimate knowledge of the local real estate market. He is highly experienced in locating a property that meets the client's specific requirements. He notified us when the right condo unit at the right price came to the market and advised us on the offer price that he believed seller will most likely accept. He also helped us decide if it is a good investment using a detailed spreadsheet for worst and best case scenarios. He is highly knowledgeable in the entire bidding process, including the inspection, effective negotiation management (with his leadership we improved the price very significantly), and closing the transaction. He was there to guide and walk us through the process and give his expert advice, always keeping your best interest as his top priority. A week after closing, Joseph helped us find tenants and sign a lease with them. He was extremely helpful in finding handymen to get the property ready for rental in a very short time. His commitment to your best interests continues beyond the transaction itself, it's more of a long term relationship. Joseph is highly professional, extremely reliable and trustworthy. The combination of expertise and integrity with which he managed this transaction effectively, accurately and quickly gave us the confidence to enter the real-estate market and we will definitely use his services again and recommend him to all our friends.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend "

    Joseph was a joy to work with. He responded promptly to all queries - this was especially appreciated since I was on travel for much of this transaction. Would work with Joseph again.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    We just bought our first house with Joseph, and totally happy that choose him as our real estate agent. Now Seattle real estate market is overloaded, and it's hard to buy nice house that meets your expectations and works for your budget. And Joseph was really helpful because he can persuade seller sell house to you. I think, for Seattle market it's the most important characteristic of the real estate agent.

  • "Joseph is a Brilliant Negotiator!"

    Joseph Goldberg is an exceptional realtor that provided my husband and me with the best possible first home buying experience. He provided us with excellent advice and was in constant communication. We always felt like we were a priority. Joseph is a brilliant negotiator and assisted us every step of the way. With his help we closed on an amazing home in Queen Anne.

  • "Joseph is the Only One Who Met My Full Expectations of a Realtor!"

    Prior to Joseph, I worked with three other realtors in the last few years both on the buy and sell side of the transaction. M any of them were professional and experienced, but Joseph is the only one who met my full expectations of a realtor. My expectations of my realtor are 1. To be an expert in their profession in understanding the market, purchase price, rental market and be an effective negotiator 2. Communicate timely and follow through on my expectations 3. Be reliable and trustworthy 4. Lead by example. Joseph fulfilled on each of the above, and thus, in less than three months we closed on two multi -family properties. I was interested in buying real estate for rental/investment and without a hard and fast budget or fixed parameters, within a week of looking, we found a charming triplex in Green Lake that was purchased at below market price and closed within 30 days. Fifteen days later, I had renters paying rent all with the guidance of Joseph. He was a wealth of resource in finding handymen/subcontractors at a bargain to get the property ready for rent and helping me develop a system from advertising the property to screening tenants to being a landlord. Without his guidance and his generosity with his time and knowledge after the transaction, I would not have had the confidence to buy a second 5-plex in Ravenna two months later. Not to mention, the second property closed in less than 30 days because of Joseph's detailed organization and communication with the seller's agent. I respect Joseph's personal experience as a landlord and his willingness to help others build their financial freedom with real estate. His advice and continued handholding has given me the confidence to manage these properties on my own on top of my day job. Further, prior to Joseph, I was willing to buy properties almost anywhere as long as the price was right. With Joseph's guidance, he has helped me develop my own parameters of what makes a good investment, priorities and using numbers, not emotions, to justify the purchase price. Without his follow through and continued time and support after the purchase I'd probably still be looking passively online at websites like Zillow to find properties rather than collecting rent. So in short, if you want a professional you can depend on before and after the transaction, who truly understands what makes a great investment, and will teach you how to be a responsible landlord, then Joseph is your Realtor.

  • "I Would Definitely Work with Him Again!"

    I would highly recommend working with Joseph to find your next home. After renting in Green Lake for a year, I was preparing myself to renew my rental agreement because I didn't think I'd be able to find anything in Seattle's competitive market before my lease expired. Joseph was able to help me find an amazing home in less than 3 weeks!

    Here are a few things that made my experience with Joseph stand out: 1. He was always available to answer my questions and never passed me off to someone else (as a first time home buyer this was very important to me) 2. He worked around the clock to notify me of new properties that met my specifications (we put in an offer on my home hours after it posted online) 3. His ability to write competitive offers in the Seattle market is second to none (He wrote a very competitive offer on my home and helped me save money on my purchase).

    I was able to be honest about what worked for me and what didn't without feeling pressured to buy something that didn't make me happy. I was very fortunate to have found Joseph as a realtor in this market. His past experience buying and selling properties for himself definitely made me feel like I had a leg up on the competition during my search for a home. I would definitely work with him again when the time comes.

  • "Joseph is Extremely Knowledgeable"

    I worked with Joseph in July 2018 to purchase my new home in just under 3 weeks, and below asking. As a first time home buyer, and being relatively new to Seattle, I did not know what to expect. Joseph walked me through the home buying process and spent countless hours discussing options and viewing homes, to familiarize me with what each neighborhood had to offer at different price points. When I had questions about the home, Joseph did not hesitate to reach out to the sellers agent, or contact King county to get more information as needed.

    Joseph is extremely knowledgeable about the Seattle housing market and gives great tips and recommendations regarding local businesses for homeowner needs. He is easy to work with, patient, and friendly. He is easily reachable by text, email, or phone call, and was happy to work with me on nights and weekends to better suit my schedule. Months after my purchase, I know that if I contact Joseph with a question today, he will be more than happy to help.

He will also contact the seller, builder, and loan agents if you need information or have questions. He dedicated his days, evenings, and weekends to helping my husband and I find the perfect home and even helped us through part of the buying process while he was on vacation.

    I recommend working with joseph

  • "Joseph is an Awesome Agent! "

    Joseph is an awesome agent! He's super responsive (easy to get ahold of!) and answered all of the questions I had. He has good suggestions on making your home more likely to sell and goes above and beyond to help make those adjustments. He was always in contact with the other parties involved with the sale of my home and me, so I always felt like I was in the loop on where things were at.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    I was under the impression that buying a house was a difficult process, but not when working with Joseph.

    His predictions were spot on and he was willing to go that extra mile to help me find the home I was looking for.

    I sometimes found myself wondering if Joseph ever sleeps!

    I look forward to working with him again in the future when I'm up for buying my second home.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    My spouse and I have worked with several agents before we got to Joseph, with mixed results. In today's aggressive sellers market we needed someone who knew the Seattle real estate market like the back of their hand, ultra-responsive to last minute changes, and experienced in real estate negotiation tactics. Joseph is all that - and more. If you don't want to keep wasting your time on endless non-personalized searches or hopeless offers, and if you need a "getting things done" kind of agent, Joseph is your guy.

  • "Joseph is Able to Identify Amazing Cash-flow Opportunities!"

    Whether you are a first time home-buyer, or a sophisticated investor, Joseph's market expertise, and low pressure approach attributes highly to his amazing track record. As a successful investor himself, Joseph is able to identify amazing cash-flow opportunities and every time, is negotiates great price point for his clients. Joseph takes the time to share his personal insight, as well as really get to know his clients and their objectives. It's evident that Joseph cares about your best interests above and beyond anything, and this is why it is a privilege to work with him.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph Goldberg is an exceptional realtor who I highly recommend.
    Purchasing a house and especially a rental property is complicated, as novices, we needed a lot of advice before the purchase, during and after. Joseph was there for us throughout all the process and is still a great source of advice and consultation. With Joseph's experience, expertise, reliability and honesty, we made a great choice that we are happy about. I would highly recommend having a realtor that is not going away after the closing and is happy to assist you. Joseph Goldberg is such a realtor who we are very happy with.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph is the right agent in the right place and exactly what you want in your real estate agent to be. He is highly knowledgeable, understand the local real estate market and very familiar with the entire process.

    He is always there for you to guide and walk you through the process and give you his expert opinion. He will strategize the best offer that could get you the house for the least amount of money and will notify when the right house came the market.

    I will highly recommend and will use Joseph again to buy my next real estate.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph is knowledgeable, responsive, and has high integrity. I've bought two houses with Joseph in the last 2 months - my first rental property in Licton Springs and a smaller home a block from Tangletown that we'll use to build our new family home.

    Joseph is very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to evaluating income and development potential of rental properties. We were the only offer and were able to close under the asking price despite the hot market. Now 2 months later, I have great cash flow and plans to double the income from the property with some minor development projects over the next two years. Even after the sale, Joseph is still being helpful by sharing lease documents, contractors, and advertising services he uses with his own properties.

    Joseph is very responsive (he says 24/7), and he always alerted us to newly available properties the same day they listed, which was very important in our Tangletown purchase. He also advises on the offer terms, and has a very accurate sense of the final sales price in this crazy time of multiple offers and escalations when hot properties list and sell in 3-7 days. We were in a competitive situation with the second home and we won the property just $5K above the the second best offer.

    I would recommend Joseph for anywhere in North Seattle and probably Capitol Hill, Montlake, and Queen Anne too.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph Goldberg represented us in selling and purchasing in a number of investment properties. We have recently moved from Seattle and needed an agent we could trust to represent our affairs remotely. Joseph was always available no matter the time differences, walked us virtually via every communication method through every picture, video, legal document, and option. It is a no brainer to buy/sell a house in a hot economy, but it takes a real professional and a gentleman to represent a deal gone sour. Joseph was incredibly thoughtful not only of our interests but also of the other party. This is exactly what an agent should do - not be a walking talking computer, but to advise, respect decisions, and be a trustworthy partner. We continue working with Joseph and can highly recommend him to others.

  • "We Would Highly Recommend Him to Anyone!"

    My wife and I live in Vancouver Canada. We are looking to buy a rental building in the Greenlake area of Seattle that we eventually will be moving into in a few years. We contacted Joseph Goldberg after we saw his name pop up online. On a trip to Seattle we met with Joseph and he took us to view a few great buildings that he thought we would like. He gave us his view on each property and on the market overall. He took his time to educate us on the local housing market. We were very impressed with Joseph. He is clearly very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Seattle’s local housing market. We are most impressed with his intelligence. He is very smart and can think outside the box . He shared some of his approaches on how to effectively negotiate and win in a very competitive market like Seattle. We learned that Joseph had a successful career as a software engineer before he turned to follow his passion in Real Estate. And we could really see why. Although we are still looking we know that Joseph is our guy. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to invest in real estate in Seattle. We would like to thank him very much for all his assistance and professionalism in helping us to get to know the Seattle real estate market.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    We found Joseph to be a 6 star professional; we highly recommend him. His service was above and beyond our expectations. We learned much about the wide berth of Seattle realty from his informative emails, talks and viewings. His passion and commitment to his clients is apparent from the first meeting. Our CPA recommended Joseph to us; we are multifamily investors.

    Joseph is knowledgeable about all aspects of Seattle residential real estate. He listened to our varied requirements and found properties that fit our needs. That alone was no small task. He consistently offered unique ideas and opportunities about optimizing property/ land use.

    Joseph quickly answered all of our questions, once again proving his diligence to his pursuit of quality. His explanations were concise and clear. He patiently explained the the pros and cons of the investments we were viewing.

  • "He Was Super Responsible"

    It was a pleasure to work with Joseph! He was super responsible and reachable to show the property that was matching the criteria, always ready to address all our concerns or explain why certain things matter or not. It took a while for us to find a dream house, but he kept being optimistic and energetic about it. And we are particularly thankful for the suggestions around bidding strategy, as we won the house and saved some money! His partner house inspector and escrow were great - we were able to close the house on a tight deadline with no issues.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph was an insightful, attentive, and efficient agent who worked tirelessly to find, show, and make offers on homes that we loved. He was extremely flexible with his schedule and made each step in the home buying process easy, from expediently contacting sellers to using his network of professionals in the industry to give us good advice and excellent service. I feel lucky to have run into Joseph, and we know we can rely on him in the future for any real estate questions we have.

    Wow. That's the word I come up with when I think about the experience working with Joseph to purchase a building. I've worked with many realtors over the years but have never met a realtor with Joseph's intelligence, integrity, shrewdness, accessibility, and willingness to work hard.

    The purchase was a complex transaction with lots of moving pieces. Joseph was ALWAYS accessible and more than willing to lend his time and talents to any decision or assist with troubleshooting. Joseph is a skilled negotiator who placed my interests first at all times.

    I am convinced that you cannot go wrong having Joseph on your team in any real estate transaction.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend "

    Joseph has been extremely helpful in helping us understand the trade-offs of buying a property of different types (e.g. condo, duplex, etc.), and the differences between various Seattle neighborhoods. He has gone above and beyond in helping us through the negotiation with the seller, guiding us through the process, connecting us to relevant service providers, etc. It's been a much easier experience having Joseph on our side!

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    5 star service all the way, which is exactly what you'll get working with Joseph. Joseph knows the Seattle area well, is aware of what's going on in the market, and was absolutely on top of everything that mattered. I relied on him completely. His honesty and integrity places him a cut above the rest. He knows his stuff, and is forthright without being pushy. Would I work with Joseph again? Absolutely.

  • "We Would Have Not Done It Without Joseph!"

    We were just browsing for a possible investment property, so when few weeks later Joseph called us with a listing and explain that this was a terrific investment, we were obviously very skeptical. Joseph has lots of experience. He took the time to explain and put all income, expenses, potential capital gains and possible exit strategies on a detailed spreadsheet for worst and best case scenarios and we started to fill more confident and decided to go with the purchase. Joseph helped us in negotiation and inspection and then guided us through the closing. Almost a year later we are very happy, the property is providing us even more income that we originally planned for and has already appreciated significantly. We would have not done it without Joseph.

  • " I Would Definitely Work with Him Again!"

    I had a great experience working with Joseph. He went beyond his duty to find a great property in this competitive Seattle market when I was really losing hope. Joseph has a great knack of the market. His ability to write a competitive offer was second to none. I really like his knowledge of the greater Seattle neighborhoods and house values.

    Some of the great qualities Joseph possesses are: 1) He is always available to answer any questions and he prepared an offer for me within an hour of notification. 2) He passes the best info about the property and never pushes you to buy. 3) He is always very positive - I lost some offers very closely but he kept my motivation very high with his knowledge and keeping my hope. 4) He always looks after your interest in saving money during your purchase process.

    I would definitely work with him again when the time comes and I would recommend Joseph very highly to anyone.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend "

    Joseph Goldberg is an exceptional realtor that provided my husband and I with the best possible first home buying experience. He provided us with excellent advice and was in constant communication. We always felt like we were a priority. Joseph is a brilliant negotiator and assisted us every step of the way. With his help we closed on an amazing home in Queen Anne.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    After we moved away from Seattle, we have kept our townhome as a rental. As years passed, it no longer made sense to keep the property, so Joseph Goldberg helped us to sell it. This was not just a house, it was our first joint purchase and a place where our children were born. So this was an emotional sale, and, at the end of the day, obviously a financial decision. Joseph was incredibly sensitive to all the details of the transaction, from ensuring that we got the highest sale price, to walking us through the legal and emotional closure. We couldn't have asked for a better agent to trust such an important decision to.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph is a real pro and much more than you might expect.

    Joseph helped us with a purchase of an investment property. He is quick, helpful, has a lot of knowledge and experience and an expert on negotiation

    Before we started looking at houses he talked with us, tried to understand us and sent us a detailed table with all kind of investment options together with ROI analysis.

    When we started looking at houses Joseph listened to us and to our thoughts. He gave us as much time as we needed to look at each option carefully, even at late hours.

    Joseph knew to give us precise estimations for each of the properties we saw regarding to closing prices, the construction conditions, flipping costs, etc.

    Eventually we chose to go for a new construction. Joseph was an amazing negotiator, and negotiate us a price, much lower than what other people have paid for similar houses on the same project.

    Joseph supported us e2e, even after closing he kept in touch answered our questions, sent us emails asking if we are doing ok, if we rented out the house and even pointed us to all kind home rental forms guidelines.

    I would say that if you want a doer, a guy that actually cares about his clients, and a real pro, then Joseph is definitely what you are looking for.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    We had a great experience buying a property with Joseph. He was informative, responsive, kind, honest and professional and helped us find the right property for us and put down the right offer that was accepted. I can't recommend him highly enough!

  • "I Believe That We Wouldn’t Have Gotten Our New Home Without Joseph"

    I believe that we wouldn’t have gotten our new home without Joseph. Aside from being very timely and available, he went above and beyond by helping us find an inspector who was willing to come out that same day so that we could turn around an offer the day the house was listed. As first time homebuyers in such a competitive market, we are very appreciative!

  • "Could Not Have Asked for Better Service!"

    We used Joseph in the process of purchasing our home. We highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy. We had heard from man y friends who bought homes in the area that they had been involved in bidding wars. This made us very reluctant to begin the process of looking at home. I wanted to get it done ASAP, Joseph made this possible. He made himself very available to show us homes, and was very prompt when responding to our emails. With all of his help we were able to move into our new home in a mere three weeks! Could not have asked for better service. We are very fortunate to have found Joseph.

  • "Joseph Can Get You What You Truly Want!"

    My husband and I were first-time home buyers and Joseph's expert knowledge of Seattle real estate market and outstanding dedication to find us a home of our dreams was invaluable. He was always available to us throughout the whole process by his cell and email and always took time to address any of our concerns. He referred us to excellent mortgage brokers, home inspectors and contractors. He was there to immediately arrange showings of any properties we thought we might like, including the ones which got on market just seconds ago. Finally, he was able to negotiate an excellent purchase price for us for the beautiful, fully renovated home in a highly sought-after Seattle neighborhood with the best elementary school for our kids. I don't know what inside knowledge and tricks he used, but, in the end, the house was ours, not our competitor's. To put it shortly, with Joseph on our side, the whole home buying process in quite tough Seattle seller's market was hassle free and very successful. I am recommending Joseph now to any of my friends who would like to buy real estate in Seattle, for investment or personal use. Why to settle for less when Joseph can get you what you truly want.

  • "We Felt We Are in the Best Hands Through the Process"

    Best real-estate agent in the area.
    Joseph went the extra mile for us getting the price we wanted and ensuring all our conditions are met. We felt we are in the best hands through the process.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    We were very lucky to connect with Joseph on a recent trip to Seattle. We were in town to find an apartment for our daughter who will be moving there in January. Looking at the high rental prices, we quickly changed gears to look at condos which seemed a better investment long-term. Joseph was great helping us navigate a real estate market that we we not familiar with. He obviously knew his stuff! He lined up several places for us to look at. We flew back to Boston the next day and, with Joseph's superb help, was able to put in an offer, negotiate and close on a condo in Lower Queen Anne all by phone and electronic signing. We can not say enough on how Joseph was key in making it happen and making the process painless. Great realtor. We will use again when it is time to sell. Since then, he has gone out of his way to help us with some small items like getting keys, checking the heat in the condo,...until my daughter arrives in January. Really "above and beyond" as they say! A+

  • "We Would Recommend Him to Anyone!"

    My wife and I were interested in an investment property and Joseph was very knowledgeable of the Seattle area and would recommend him to anyone. He took us around to multiple properties on the first day, of which we found one we fell in love with. Unfortunately we were unable to get it, but have been working with him since to find another.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    I recently bought a house in Seattle with Joseph as my real-estate agent. Joseph has been in real estate in Seattle for a long time, and it shows through his intimate knowledge of neighborhoods, types of properties, market prices and details of the purchasing process. He is a top notch professional. Among many things I liked about Joseph, three stood out for me:

    1. He is always available and responsible. I can’t remember a time I tried to contact him and didn’t receive a reply either right away or within a less than 30 minutes.
    2. Joseph is a rockstar in negotiation. He was able to close the house at $50K below an already reasonable asking price, an unheard of outcome in the crazy Seattle market where initial asking price is usually just the beginning of a bidding war, and ending 10% above is standard.
    3. After the house closed and I got the keys, I needed to do construction and repair work on the house, which is a greenfield area for me as a first time buyer. Despite his work officially ending at closing, Joseph continued to help with every issue I had. Since he is also a homeowner and landlord himself, he knows the contractors/repairmen market too. He provided recommended professionals to contact, gave valuable advice on which questions to ask, and even came out to the property several times to meet the contractors and help me negotiate. A couple of times I couldn’t make an appointment with a contractor so he came out instead! All that without any additional incentive or compensation. Just shows the level of his incredible commitment to his clients' satisfaction.

    I will work with Joseph if I’m ever on the real-estate market again, and warmly recommend him to others.

  • "He is Very Professional, Responsive, and Resourceful"

    Bought a Condo home in 2019 in Seattle, WA.
    Joseph supported me diligently throughout the process and connected me with the appropriate resources. As a first time home buyer, I was nervous about various aspects of the transaction; however, Jospeh patiently and thoroughly explained everything to me. He is very professional, responsive, and resourceful. It was a pleasure working with him.

  • "Joseph Has the Important Combination of Experience, Intelligence, Business and Common Sense!"

    I would highly recommend Joseph to be your Realtor. He will work diligently to get things d one for you like he did for us. Joseph has high integrity to his customers, he is very logical and with his experience and common sense and he will make sure that you are not going to make the wrong decision. I found Joseph to be having good negotiation skills; he is timely, responsive, accurate, and extremely well-reasoned. He is a good communicator and will keep you update to date on what is going on with the transaction. There is not enough good things that I can say about his abilities and expertise in the Seattle real estate field. There are many agents you to choose from but in my opinion, Joseph has the important combination of experience, intelligence, business and common sense that make him stands out from the pack of other good agents. With him it not just to make the transaction happen, it’s more of a long term relationship and will continue to serve your needs.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    I originally contacted Joseph about another condo property. He was easy to communicate and arrange time to view the space. When the listing for the property I eventually purchased came available that same week, he was also quick to show me that property before the open house was held. I decided to offer that day and he quickly drew up all the documents and we were able to submit the offer within 2 hours of seeing the space. Glad we did too, we were the first offer & they accepted! A Seattle housing market miracle!

  • "He is Extremely Responsive"

    Recently completed our second investment property purchase with Joseph.
    Joseph is extremely professional and knowledgeable, and was very effective in fine-tuning to our needs and finding the right property for us (including visiting potential properties and expressing his honest opinion). This was super-valuable as we could complete the entire process remotely.
    His experience came into play when extending the offer, then negotiating the terms throughout the process to be significantly more favorable.
    He also helped find other professionals (inspection, insurance) and served as our local contact person for every need.
    He is extremely responsive and was very easy to work with, and we feel very fortunate to have had him on our side.

  • "Joseph is Knowledgeable, Proactive, Has Incredible Negotiation Skills"

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2019 in Shoreline, WA.
    We had 3 transactions with Joseph so far, and I can say - there is no better agent in Seattle!
    Joseph is knowledgeable, proactive, has incredible negotiation skills, and he is always available for his clients.

  • "Joseph is Very Knowledgeable in the Seattle Market"

    Bought a Multi Family home in 2020 in Seattle, WA.
    Joseph is very knowledgeable in the Seattle market. He gives good advice and helps make the right decisions, but at the same time not putting too much pressure on the client to move forward if they need to take some time or explore more options.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    We recently used Joseph to help us purchase our first investment property in Seattle. Joseph was extremely helpful in walking us through the economics of investing in residential real-estate, help us locate properties that met our investment criteria, and helped us close on the right property.

    But where Joseph really exceeded our expectation is with his support post deal. He assisted us with finding contractors, helped educates us about landlord obligations and duties, and followed up daily until the property was fully rented.

    If you are on the market for an investment property, I highly recommend using Joseph as your broker.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph was a wonderful agent to work with and have on your side. He knows the Seattle market inside and out, which was helpful for us as we embarked on the journey to find our first home. When walking through properties he has a really good eye for how homes could be updated or renovated and what aspects needed fixing. He prepared us for how quickly things moved and was extremely responsive to our needs. Joseph guided us through the process of putting forward our strongest offers and different strategies to stand out. We feel unbelievably grateful to have our new home and we could not have done it without Joseph! We would highly recommend him. – Rob and Devon L.

  • "I Highly Recommend Joseph Goldberg!"

    Joseph Goldberg is an exceptional Realtor and I can't say enough good things about him as a professional and as a person. His assistance and guidance were instrumental in our purchase which otherwise we were not doing. His deep knowledge and understanding of the market backed by easy to understand charts and lots of invaluable tips, helped us a lot in deciding on buying the rental property which we are very happy about. Joseph has several rental properties and has an incredible 'on the ground' experience with buying, remodeling and renting apartment in the Seattle area. Furthermore, Joseph provided us with valuable advice on how to get ahead with the purchase in a strong sellers’ market. His assistance did not end there. He provided us with a lot of guidance on how to get started as landlords. I highly recommend Joseph Goldberg!

  • "Joseph is a Experienced Agent "

    We recently completed our first apartment purchase with Joseph as my agent.
    Joseph is a experienced agent that has deep knowledge about the local real estate market.
    He was a valuable resource for us as we didn't have experience in buying a house, he took care of every aspect of the process, including inspection and was able to negotiate a good discount for us.

    He is honest, responsive and trustworthy. I highly recommend working with Joseph as your agent.

  • "Joseph Was a Great Agent!"

    For those of you looking to buy a home in the Seattle area. . .I'm sorry. The market is going absolutely insane right now in terms of high demand and low supply. It is a frustrating process, but here is my advice, contact Joseph ASAP. My wife and I started looking for places back in October/November 2015 and reached out to several agents. They were either exceedingly negative (e.g. you don't have enough money to buy in this market), or exceedingly optimistic (this run down piece of crap just needs a little TLC: it doesn't matter that the walls are literally falling down). We even went so far as to contact agents from Redfin and were extremely disappointed with the utter lack of knowledge. That is when we found Joseph.

    In the modern world, the days of telling agent what you want and having him show you a dozen homes or so isn't really around. Rather, with online tools and the extremely fast sales it has become a race of sorts. Scour the MLS database until something somewhat hits your interest and get out to see it THAT day and decide, otherwise you might be left behind, or miss out.

    Joseph was great in a few key areas. First, he was extremely responsive and available. Even with last minute, "this just came on the market we need to look at it now" phone calls, he was able to accommodate nearly every whim we had, which is above and beyond every other agent we talked to. The second key area of excellence was his depth of knowledge, not just of the real estate market, nor just his knowledge of what it takes to win an offer/bidding war, but also his knowledge regarding homes, buildings, fixing, costs and all of the other things people often don't realize they should know. We would walk into a home and he would do what I call an "impromptu inspection", tell you what was wrong, what needed to be fixed, how difficult it is to do this, and/or how expensive it would be to pay someone else. I believe that this knowledge comes from his years (decades?) of experience as a landlord. This has given him a special set of skills that I have not seen in any other agents. The final thing I want to touch on regarding Joseph is his understanding of what it takes to win an offer. It's not just that he can tell you things that can help, but it is that he can explain the WHY and the HOW of offer details. For example, assume that you are about to put in an offer on a hot property and are fairly certain that it will end in a bidding war (typical of Seattle right now). He has the knowledge of tips and tricks, concessions, etc. that can make your offer stand out from the others. While other agents may know of some tips/tricks, with Joseph it is different. He really knows the game and he can explain, in ELI5 terms, what it is that you are conceding/agreeing to and why it makes your offer more powerful.

    Joseph was a great agent and I credit his knowledge in getting us, not the home of our dreams (we're not multi-millionaires), but a hot home in the neighborhood we have come to love. TL;DR: He knows his stuff.

  • "Josef Provided Us with a Great End to End Professional Experience!"

    Josef provided us with a great end to end professional experience and managed to close a difficult deal in a very competitive market. We chose Josef through friend’s recommendation and he did not disappoint. If you need a real estate agent that makes the difference and give you the edge, Joseph is certainly the one!! Very experienced, friendly, patient and business savvy. Thanks.

  • "Joseph is the Best of the Best! "

    Joseph Goldberg supported my first-time purchase of an investment property in Seattle. He worked with me closely for months, tirelessly analyzing opportunities, getting inside information, and using his wealth of knowledge to ensure that I am making the right deal. Joseph is attentive, knowledgeable, shrewd, delightful, and a great communicator. Most importantly, you know that Joseph is 100% on your side. The latter point became abundantly clear when he cleverly negotiated the price down after the inspection results came in. I could not recommend Joseph more for your Puget Sound real estate activity.

  • "THANK YOU JOSEPH!"

    Joseph is driven & dedicated to his work & is a pleasure to work with. The house I ended up purchasing was not on my list of places to look at, as it was not within my budget. Joseph was able to negotiate a lower price for me, & I am very happy with my purchase!

    He was always on time for appointments, very knowledgeable about the Seattle area & market, & has a lot of great tips to share.

    THANK YOU JOSEPH!!!

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph is a nice and professional realtor with the sense of responsibility Who I'd like to recommend highly.
    It is more difficult to purchase a house especially a rental property for a nonnative person.I was luck enough to meet Joseph who gave me so many helps both in the purchase and even after. He was always available and extremely patient when I needed his help at any time.
    Because of his hard work, I became a new owner in a month and a landlord in about 10 days!
    Thanks Joseph! It's really a wonderful experience in purchasing and renting with you. Hope to do business with you again and I'd like to introduce my friends to you if they want to buy house here.

  • "We Could Not Be Happier with Our Choice of Joseph!"

    We completed an investment property purchase under Joseph's guidance. New to the Seattle market, we felt very fortunate to work with a professional like Joseph. Closing a real estate deal can be complex, and having someone knowledgeable that you trust at your side throughout the process makes all the difference.
    Joseph located potential properties that aligned with our desired investment strategy, clearly explained pros and cons of each, and laid out detailed calculations that distilled the value of the property we decided to go for. His proactive approach during the offer stage (in dealings with both the seller and the lender) was invaluable, and resulted in our offer being accepted on a great property. Joseph's involvement did not end there, he remained extremely responsive to questions and provided helpful advice throughout the ownership transition period. He also made the introductions to all other professionals that were needed (inspector, insurance, etc.), and served as their local point of contact as needed.
    We could not be happier with our choice of Joseph as our agent and warmly recommend using his services.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    I worked with Joseph for purchasing my first investment property. Joseph walked me through the process, always made himself available and offered tips and shared his knowledge. It's clear Joseph knows the Seattle area very well. I would recommend working with Joseph.

  • "Joseph Did a Fantastic Job! "

    Joseph did a fantastic job! He consistently found us great properties to view and when it came time to write our first offer he really helped guide us through every step of the process. Several times we were interested in homes with multiple offers and we wouldn't be in our new home today without Joseph's savvy negotiating. Highly recommend him!

  • "I Will Use Joseph Again!"

    Joseph is exactly what you want in your real estate agent to be. He is highly knowledgeable; understand the local real estate market and the process real well. He is always there for you to guide and walk you through the process and give you his expert opinion. He will notify when the right house came the market and will strategize the best offer that could get you the house for the least amount of money. I will use Joseph again not only to buy but also to sell any real estate. I will highly recommend him.

  • "Highly Likely to Recommend"

    Joseph was the reason I was able to buy a home first the first time, in a hugely competitive and aggressive market, within both a reasonable schedule and a limited budget. He was willing to give me time to tour a diverse sample of listings to figure out what I need and what expectations I should have - he was very upfront about my options and engaged in adapting our search to my needs.

    I though the hard part was over when we placed an offer, but without Joseph's help, I would have been paralyzed by the task of finding lenders, insurance, and all the rest. He is very resourceful and engaged in the real estate community - he immediately had referrals for me to reach out to. Not only that, be he was a great advocate for me to the end - Joseph responsive day or night, and he expects others who are working with his clients to do the same. I was an inexperienced home-shopper and it would have been easy for me to get lost in the weeds, but Joseph's expertise, engagement, and get-it-done approach enabled me to move into my new home within a mere months of starting to look.

See how Joseph Goldberg can help with your real estate needs!
