We would like to thank you for the enjoyable and professional way in which you helped us find and buy our dream home. You paid attention to every little detail and covered all the bases as if it was your own purchase. In a very short time, you figured out what would best fit our needs and played a critical role in the "money time”. In addition to providing us with top notch service and wonderful advice, you assisted us in assembling a very professional and reliable team for handling all the aspects of the deal (e.g. legal support, house inspection, etc.). We are not sure if we could have done it without you.

It is very difficult to move from a foreign country with a different culture and language. We were therefore very fortunate to have your patient guidance with a welcoming smile. Right from the start you mentioned we will have a friend in America. And indeed we have. You listened to us, encouraged us when we had trouble understanding how things were going here, and cleared your time for us.

You really warmed our heart and gave us a pleasant feeling of being very welcome in a new country.

Thank you Joel for being our friend and helping us feel at home. You also have new friends in Andover, MA

My fiance and I met Joel at our first open house when we just starting our search for our first house together. Fast forward two months later and who knows how many open houses, it was time to lock down an agent and get pre-approved. We must have met 20-25 agents and only one stood out to us, Joel Margolis. Our search lasted about 6 weeks before we were lucky enough to buy our perfect starter home. Joel's experience, knowledge and strong local network proved instrumental to... a seamless buying process. He kept us informed on the potential next steps and guided us through a fair negotiation. We've continued to reach out to Joel with first time home owner questions and he's always been quick to reply with an answer or solution. We couldn't have been happier with the buying process and highly recommend Joel to anyone on the North Shore whether you're buying or selling. We certainly hope to use him again! Chris & Kristen
"Joel made it possible to sell our home and purchase a new one with minimum stress and anxiety.  Joel's experience and knowledge were evident by the obvious success of his aggressive marketing and persistence in getting the buyers to decision."

"Mark and I want to thank you for selling our home in Georgetown.  Your experience and qualifications proved to be the key to selling our home within a very short time frame of listing it.  We found that your ideas for staging the house and market analysis, greatly improved the salability of our property.  You were extremely organized and reliable.  We appreciated that you promptly communicated with us all aspects of the sale. We put trust in you to handle one of the most important financial decisions in our life, and we are so happy we did."

Joel didn't tell us what we wanted to hear, but rather what we needed to hear.  His directness and integrity certainly was reassuring.

We engaged Joel for the sale of 5 properties in total over a period of about 20 months, starting with the listing of our primary Beverly residence and concluding with the sale of our last income property.  In each and every case, from his listing research to his attendance at the closing, Joel provided the highest level of advice, professionalism, marketing, follow-through and attention to detail.  His knowledge of the market and thoroughness in preparing for the listing allowed us to set an asking price that melded high value with a speedy sale.
Joel was always "there" for each and every step in the process.  He was vigorous in marketing and showing the properties, attentive to the details of the agreement negotiations and paperwork, diligent in the post-agreement follow-up and supportive in the scheduling and attendance at the closing.   I would highly recommend Joel to anyone seeking expert real estate services anywhere.

Anyone looking for an agent with knowledge, work ethic and an overall good experience, I recommend Joel.  I was impressed with his knowledge of the area, the market, his pricing strategy and his effortless ability to see the best qualities in a house.  If you listen to his advise, the sale will be successful.  His suggestions for staging absolutely resulted in getting the full asking price.  His guidance through the entire process made for a successful sale of my house.

I had the pleasure of working with Joel when I purchased in 2014.  He listened to my wants and needs and was always available to answer questions and provide support.  When I moved back down South last year, Joel was my go to Realtor without question.  His expertise in home staging and market pricing made a real difference which resulted in a sale within a week.  He was awesome to work with.

"Joel worked tirelessly to sell my home, despite difficult obstacles such as septic and home inspection issues.  His counsel and support were invaluable.  I would recommend Joel to anyone, anytime.  In fact,
Joel came to me as a referral from a friend who lived in the same town and sold her house with Joel."
