Joe is efficient and wise in his knowledge when negotiating the best price to sell our home. He has a team that will respond to your needs promptly, even after the sell of the house. We are very satisfied with what Joe and his team has done.
J. Duck
I would recommend Joe to anyone serious about buying or selling a house. He is honest and is to the point. To me honesty is the most important thing, and Joe and his team have that and all of the other tools to make things happen. Also one last thing that Joe is, he is a humble man , and that is a rare thing to see these days in any field work.
Joe was great!! we have used Joe for several of our real estate transactions and he always delivers and his keen eye on details has caught a few things I feel confident other would have missed.
A. Alvarez
Joe and his team are very knowledgeable about the real estate industry. They worked hard to find us a home that met our needs and offered advice when putting in our offer. They kept us in the loop at all stages of the process and all were a pleasure to work with.
L. Wickie
Joe and his team were very helpful, they were there for all my questions and steered the sale of my home that was at best a cluster from the buyers side. They kept thing flowing and the communication open all the way to the finish line. Great team with open honest communication, which I found a rare attribute these days.
T. Padilla
Joe and his team went WAY above and beyond in every area to ensure we had the best possible experience. They don't just care about the end goal (selling or buying) but they care equally about the process, and your personal likes and dislikes. I would never want to work with another agent or team. They are really the best at what they do!
J. Brien
Joe Platz and his awesome team worked really hard for us. That hard work paid off with a full price offer in 24 hours. We couldn't be more pleased and will continue to trust our biggest transaction with him and his team!
Joe Platz delivered excellent customer service during the recent listing, sale, and closing of my house. He initiated clear communication regularly every step of the way, and handled all the details so I didn't have to worry about anything. What can be a stressful event was made a smooth transaction thanks to his attention, experience and professionalism.
C. Lindley
From listing to close in two weeks! Joe and his team were fabulous, communicated every little detail of what was happening and made me feel I was the most important person on the planet. I heartily recommend this team!
S. Elie
Joe sold our home in less than one week after list it. His team was great to work with and made for a smooth process. He had an in-depth knowledge of our area. Would list with Joe again in the future.
A. McCaw
My experience with Joe and the whole Selling Snohomish team was awesome!! I was very nervous as a first time home buyer as most people probably are. I was hesitant at first of working with a "team" as opposed to a single agent. I thought I would be passed around and then things would get missed. Boy, was I wrong. The team experience was great. I was more than taken care of than I thought I could be. All of my expectations of this process were exceeded. Roberta, my agent was fantastic. She was patient, kind and really listened to the things I liked and the things I wanted. Together we found the perfect house for me. The Selling Snohomish team really took care of me and I am super appreciative. The days while we waited for the house to close I received calls just letting me know the slow parts were normal and that we were on track. I am not the type of person that let's my guard down very often but I was completely comfortable with everyone on the Selling Snohomish Team. I highly recommend them. They are fun, knowledgable and they are honest and I think those are very important when going through this process.
S. Cohen
Joe was great. I was out of state and he bought new smoke detectors, arrange a cleaning service and many more items above and beyond his responsibilities as a real estate agent. Words cannot say how pleased I am with his service. Thanks a million Joe!!
D. Pearson
Joe helped us buy and sell, always available for showings. Sold our existing home in a week. Joe has a fantastic team great communication and he will take the time to explain the process
G. Lamb
His agent was right on the spot when we were looking for a house. She provided personal knowledge of the property, smart advice regarding our offer negotiations, and great follow-up throughout the process.
H. Laurel
Joe and Daphne were great to work with! Will be using them again. They were easy to get along with and knew what they were talking about. We had a baby shortly before we began house hunting and they were very accommodating.
D. Angevine
This is the first time I've worked with Joe to sell a property for me and I chose him because of his knowledge and expertise with investment properties and because he initially found this investment property for me to purchase years ago. This was not a simple sale and there were several "Oh no's!" yet Joe remained calm and forward looking through the entire transaction. I am not an easy client to work with; I know this is true. Joe always made me feel as if he was happy to help me even when my head was spinning and smoke coming out of my ears (which was never due to anything he did). I highly recommend Joe for any real estate needs. He totally rocks!
E. Sykes
Very knowledgeable and helpful in the home buying process, and believe me dealing with mortgage company and underwriter was very difficult. Everyone stuck it out in extreme pressure circumstances and we closed on our home.
R. Nichols
Joe and the Selling Snohomish team were excellent in helping me find the right home. When going from house to house to view, Joe would get a feel for what I was looking for just by the conversations we had in the car. He is very knowledgeable in the real estate business and answered all of my questions. When closing on the house, Joe's negotiating tactics ultimately landed me the deal that I wanted. I would recommend Joe to my friends and family.
K. Johnson
Rumor has it short sales are not supposed to be easy. Ours was, and I'm blaming Joe for that! He was super informative and knowledgeable from the gate. He recommended us to a law firm to work with. He kept us continually informed and updated, and the best part. He sold our home within 17 days, allowing us to finish the short sale within five months. Amazing work!
T. Zoe
When we were searching for our perfect home, Joe made sure that we were well educated about every step of the process. He's forthright and very responsive - two characteristics you want in today's fast moving market. We had some challenges in purchasing our dream home, as it was a government owned property. Joe knows the ropes and was able to negotiate the process quickly and as painless as possible. This is not the first home for my husband and I and we've worked with other real estate agents in the past. Joe is hands down the very best real estate professional we've had the pleasure of working with and we have recommended him to our friends and family.
J. Downes
A dependable, responsive and professional real estate broker who was attentive to our needs overall. I was in search of a home for my elderly father. Joe was helpful in recognizing his needs and the type of home best for dad. A single story, easy maintenance. We looked at 3-4 homes priced within dads affordability plan. After long talks and mulling over his choices dad decided to go to an assisted living eldercare home. This was a difficult decision for dad but one we all feel was in his best interest. I appreciate Joe for his kindness and help during this transition.
M. Hansel
Joe has the knowledge and expertise to find and successfully negotiate the home you need and want. He does so with a smile, and easy demeanor, a competent staff, and excellent contacts to provide whatever the situation requires. I highly recommend Joe and would call him for any real estate transaction.
T. Matson
Joe's professionalism is outstanding. We were in a very stressful situation dealing with timing of when we needed to get out of our previous house and into another. Joe was able to stay calm under pressure keeping my husband and I calm and confident that timing would work out. Not only did timing work out, Joe is very educational making sure we understood the process and what we were dealing with.
D. Hazzard
Joe Platz and Daphne Hamilton from Keller Williams help me and my wife find our first home and we are very happy with the job that they did. Because of the market, it took us longer than usual to find a place, but Joe and Daphne stuck with us through the whole process and always got back to us on time about every house we wanted to see. Joe did a great job of talking us through everything we didn't understand about the home buying process and Daphne was there to show us a last minute house on the weekend. We are both very glad we had them working for us.
K. Tongg
Joe was a pleasure to work with. He was always available to answer our questions throughout the selling process. Joe and his team took the time to thoroughly evaluate other listings in our area and was very knowledgeable when it came to helping us set a listing price. We especially loved the extra work he put in to get our listing "out there" by advertising in the real estate market. We felt like he was 100% doing everything he could to help us sell our home. We would HIGHLY recommend Joe for any and all real estate needs.
Tammy G.
I loved how Joe offered to educate me on the process of selling my Dad's land-with no strings attached. I was able to make better decisions with his knowledge and he always let me lead where and what I wanted to do with the selling of this property. Joe was easy to talk with and I always felt he had my best interests as top priority.

Gerry V.
A pleasant person to work with and gave me good information on preparing the sale of the house.
Ruth V.
I would defiantly recommend Joe Platz to all of my family and friends. Joe was helpful every step of the way. It made the home buying experience great. I am glad that I found his name on Redfin, I was not having luck and that changed, I am now a happy homeowner. Thank you again, Joe.
