See What Joe's Clients Have to Say!

Joe is the best!

 Joe is everything you want to find in a Realtor--professional, knowledgeable, experienced, responsive, reliable, trustworthy, patient--and an excellent negotiator. And on top of that, Joe is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. He truly cares about his clients and tries to make the process of selling their home less stressful. He was always available to us, answering our phone calls, texts, and email messages right away. It felt like Joe was a trusted family member or neighbor, always offering to help by saying, "I can do that for you!" He even helped us to get rid of some furniture, water our plants, and fill our pool with water, when we had moved out before the house sold. In addition, he had an excellent handyman to make some repairs in a timely manner for us and helped us arrange final termite inspections. He recommended excellent stagers and had a professional photographer, which made a world of difference. When it came to negotiations, his knowledge and skills were invaluable. He always had our best interests at heart. It was comforting to have Joe working on our behalf and keeping us informed every step of the way. We highly recommend Joe and would definitely ask him to be our Realtor again. THANK YOU, JOE!.  Mobley St.

Wow, Joe was amazing. We'd recommend him without hesitation. There is so much to say positive about Joe it's hard to know where to start. Our home sale was quite a challenge. We encountered many issues. Joe was there every step of the way, providing assistance with repairs, staging, vendors, everything you can think of. He actually came in and did some repairs himself! He found people to do needed work, negotiated with vendors, and definitely saved us money. We were out of town during most of the process and his help was invaluable. Needless to say, in the end we had a successful sale.

Words cannot really express how grateful we are that Joe was on our side. If you want to sell your home (or buy one), and need a friend, Joe is your man.

You were a Godsend for us

Joe -

This has taken way too long, but I want to express my sincere appreciation for all you did for us during the extremely stressful move of my Aunt Nancy from San Diego to Michigan.

Because we had moved my Aunt to Michigan before the house went on the market, we relied on you for so many things. You went way beyond the call of duty and willingly stepped in to help out every time we asked.

Not only did you handle the large tasks - estate sale, organizing charitable pickup, garbage pickup and the MOVERS, you handled the little things - returning Spectrum supplies, etc.

Through the months of our ordeal, I always felt secure knowing you were in San Diego acting in our best interests and allowing us to ask for things we probably shouldn't have asked!!

I want to thank you and hope you know what a Godsend you were for us. You made me laugh when I needed to and offered prayers when my Aunt was in the hospital.

I wish you and your family health and happy times.

Joe was the perfect realtor

"We’ve bought and sold 7 houses over 50 years (4 in California; 2 in San Diego) and have worked with many realtors.Joe was the perfect realtor for our fix-up and sale.His designer consultant and pool of work contractors were quality, responsive, and very reasonably priced.A former Navy officer, he was honest ethical and realistic while making us feel as if we were his only client.His advice was all on the mark, from pricing to negotiations to choosing an Escrow company.We looked at several realtors before selecting Joe, and were extremely pleased with our choice.Highly recommended for a buyer’s or seller’s agent!"

You can't go wrong with Joe.

"The recent death of my mother left me an inherited house in San Diego via her living trust. Living in Texas, I knew no Realtors in San Diego. I started researching Realtors who specialized in the Serra Mesa area and found three to interview. I looked closely at their websites and interviewed them over the telephone. I noticed that Joe served in the U.S. Navy, and being a retired military officer myself, I knew he possessed strong organizational and communicative skills. He was also using the latest in technology software which enabled me to sign documents electronically. The selection of Joe was a no-brainer! He established a fair price for buyer and seller and the house sold the day after going in the MLS for full price. Final closure was 10 days later. All transactions were handled through the use of telephone and computer. I was totally pleased with Joe and his assistant Jennifer. If you need to buy or sell a house in San Diego, you can't go wrong with Joe."

JOE with REMAX is the BEST!

"You and your staff are amazing real estate professionals. At the time of our initial meeting with you our thoughts were overwhelmed with the ideas of retiring from the military and relocating out of state. We did not have time to think about how we were going to sell our home and along came you. You visited us at our home and calmed our fears about how we would proceed with the sale of the home. We were so amazed because the house had only been on the market for 13 DAYS. You and your staff diligently worked with our lenders and on March 26, we closed on the short sale. The entire process was as smooth as butter (a southern term, meaning absolutely no problems).

We could never thank you and your amazing staff enough for your friendship, honesty, and the outstanding professional services you provided to our family. Our family is still preparing for our relocation to Alabama, however, we are so grateful that the sale of our home is an issue of the past. When it comes to selling homes, everyone in this community knows the JOE with REMAX is the BEST!

May God richly bless you and your staff for all that you do around this community. We have told several of our friends and co-workers about your company and the professional services that you provide. You guys are simply the best!"

He's a pro who goes out and gets it done!

"It was a pleasure working with Joe Cal. Through his expert knowledge of the market, and my neighborhood specifically, we were able to secure a deal within two weeks! I feel completely confident that putting friends and family in Joe's hands will absolutely be in their best interest. Joe is a caring man with a sincere and relaxed demeanor--but don't let that fool you! He's a pro who goes out and gets it done!"

Keen business sense

"My parents Russ and Peg have know Joe for over 10 years and have called upon him several times during this period to evaluate a potential sale of their home should that time ever come. Well that time came upon us suddenly and unexpectedly... Joe was extremely sensitive to our dire situation and treated my parents and family with dignity, respect and above all friendship... His confidence in himself, the home, and the market was a source of inspiration especially to my elderly father. Joe's reputation, keen business sense, and experience resulted in the property selling for $15,000 more than we expected and was in escrow only one week after the property was listed! Joe stayed involved at every step, always keeping me informed of the progress and handling many of the pre-sale requirements on his own."
