Joe Wathen helps get us $30,000 over our asking price! 55+ community
Joe Wathen is the most unusual realtor with whom we have dealt. Recently, he managed the sale of our home by actively applying the best practices he has culled from his 26-years of experience. For us, it was a rare education in low-key, no pressure, collaborative, real estate brokering that yielded amazing results. He immediately established a partnered relationship with us and actively pursued our end objective – selling the house at a reasonable price. He worked with patient enthusiasm, all-the-while keeping our interests and concerns foremost in mind. Our home was not just a “listing” – it was a dynamic “project” on which Joe worked daily to help make the property a sale-worthy, “win-win” exchange between seller and buyer. Joe provided an extensive list of expert resources and facilitated their best application based on his accumulated professional insight. His breadth and depth of assistance were amazing: de-cluttering, re-arranging to enhance buyer appeal, advising about maintenance and repairs, pre-screening prospective buyers, and working collegially with other realtors. The quality of print, digital, and social advertising he delivered was top-notch and received the highest praises from prospective buyers, acquaintances, friends, and relatives, alike. During each step of the process, he provided pragmatic no-nonsense assessments that translated into receiving an excellent contract. Joe delivered on his commitments with rock-solid integrity while other realtors promote themselves with advertisements and positive self-talking. Joe – on the other hand – couples resources available to all realtors today with practical know-how. The result for us was a quick sale that benefitted all parties involved. My wife and I have moved often in 48-years of marriage and have bought and sold several homes in Howard County. Never before, have we encountered a realtor with Joe’s business acumen who works as a partner rather than a sales-person. Joe produced for us without the usual ego, drama, and surprises we have encountered with other realtors. The whole experience was quality handling at low cost. Even after the sale, he continues to work with us during our relocation, out-of-state. Joe Wathen is not just a realtor, he is a friend to our family. If you plan to sell or buy real estate, skip the self-promotion and hassle – choose and rely upon Joe Wathen to steer you through the process. S.J. “Deacon” Buchanan Patricia A. Buchanan

Joe Wathen is a great Realtor
Joe is one of those realtors who goes out of his way to get meet all your needs. Joe is very hardworking and extremely reliable.
Joe is easy to get a hold of and very accommodating. It was nice to be driven to all of the houses we wanted to see so we could focus on the areas, rather than the directions. He showed us over 20 homes in a day, and all of the ones we wanted to see. He gave his honest opinion about issues within each of the homes and didn't try to oversell us. He even arranged a home inspector for us because we did not have one. When it came time for negotiating a final price, he advised us well and we didn't compromise our budget. In the end, we got what we wanted and more! Very pleased! Would definitely use again if we were going to look for another home and/or sell ours. Mark and Chrissy

We found a winner!
We had been searching for months for a new house with Joe. Every weekend we pack into Joe's car, go look at more houses. Never once did he rush us. He was honest with each house we saw and showed us the flaws that we may have missed. With Joe's assistance we found our perfect home. We could not be happier with him and his on-going support.
