Market Watch: Is "Big Change" on the Horizon??Scary times ahead? Well,
"Joseph was an Amazing real estate agent and my husband and I had a positive experience . We we're in a time crunch for our move in date he was able to meet the deadline. He's organized and is always on the ball . Also, he was able to share his background experience with flipping houses. I found this most valuable when walking through a house and getting ideas from him and possible costs of projects . This is the first of hopefully many homes we purchase in the area and we would utilize him again ."
