Testimonials for Joseph Houghton
Thanks to Joe and his commitment to our needs, we have been able to find the perfect home to raise our family. His steadfast drive made us feel like we were his only client. However, his knowledge and expertise proved that he knows what he's doing! He's not the kind of agent that's just trying to push through to the next client, we never felt rushed and we always knew that he had our interest at heart through the entire process.
Joe Houghton was a great realtor. He was very knowledgeable around locations and safe areas along with the quality and condition that the houses are in. He was also flexible and wanted what was best for his client instead of just trying to make a sale. I would recommend Joe to anyone! Thank you Joe!
We've worked with Joe for nearly two years - first to sell our home and then nearly a year to find the perfect new home - and he never grew tired of our extremely picky taste and ever-changing minds. He is a consummate professional, ultimate negotiator and truly knows the Twin Cities area and all there is to know about real estate. I would gladly and highly recommend him to any prospective client.
If I ever sell another house, I hope Joe is still in the business to help me. He was always very patient with any questions I asked. I never once got the feeling I was a pest. He went the extra mile, even after my house ran into title problems and we had to take it off the market till those were resolved. He was alwasy available. He is someone I would like as a neighbor. He was and is very fair in his negotiating as well. He helped me sell my house, then buy another. I almost want to do it again. Sign him up and you will not regret it.
Joe is 100% dedicated to real estate and that's what I appreciate about him. He is always up-to-date on MLS activity and calls with a list of potential properties. He is familiar with different banks and knows how to best write offers on foreclosures. Joe is reliable and active and that makes for a great real estate agent
Joe guided us through a complex scenario of selling our existing house in a winter market, and having a company buy a foreclosure for us, then renovate it. We knew we weren't capable of taking on the purchase ourselves because it went for a cash offer, and also weren't capable of a full home remodel in a timely fashion (nor would it have achieved the same fantastic result). We had a to make a very quick decision on whether to move forward with the purchase initially. In a short period of time (a day or so), this plan hatched and was completed in less than 4 months. It simply had to work the way it did, and it worked the way it needed to, to a tee. I couldn't have been more impressed with Joe's domain knowledge, negotiation skills, and calm demeanor throughout. There were setbacks beyond our control, as well as highs and lows throughout the process. Having Joe's knowledge of real estate and people, his network of industry connections, his dogged perseverance (no quit in this realtor), and his calm demeanor are an asset to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
Joe helped us sell our starter home and upgrade to a new home. He helped us decide when it was the right time to place our home on the market. Joe advised us as to minor but necessary improvements that would help insure a quick sale and also outlined optional more significant improvements that might help us increase our selling price. We never felt pressure to make a move we were not comfortable with. Immediately upon listing the house, Joe started marketing the house to drive interest and showings. He held several open houses without a complaint. The house sold quickly and we were able to negotiate a price we were happy with.
We also could not be happier with the purchase of our new home. Joe listened to our needs/wants and directed us to our dream house right when it came to the market. Again, there was no pressure to purchase the home but Joe also made it clear when he thought a house would be sold quickly. Joe is highly connected in the industry and when we fell in love with a house that needed serious rennovations, he was able to put us in touch with people that could make that happen. Thanks to Joe, we ended up with a home that exceeded our wildest dreams but still fell squarely within our budget.
My wife and I were first time home buyers and Joe took the time to help us learn the process. Joe repeatedly catered to our schedules and made himself available to look at homes. We will definitely use Joe next time around, and have no problem recommending him to anyone!
Hands down best realtor out there. Responsive, honest, knowledgeable and patient. Couldn’t be happier with the job Joe did for us. I have worked with Joe in 5 separate real estate deals on both the buy and sell side and know that he always had MY best interests in mind.
My wife and I started looking for our first home with Joe nine months ago. Being first time home buyers, we were initially overwhelmed by all the homes available, but Joe did a fantastic job helping us figure out which home would be the best for us. Joe would send us almost daily emails when homes that fit our requirements either entered the market or their price changed. Then Joe was so patient as we looked at so many homes that I lost count. Finally, after so many months of looking we found the perfect home in the perfect location and Joe was amazing in negotiating a price that we were so happy with. I cannot say enough things about how amazing it was to work with Joe and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home.
