Joe was great in both the buying and selling process. Always got back to us and ensured we got the best deals possible. He worked hrs and quick and made the buying and selling process smooth and seamless. We will be using Joe for our real estate needs again in the future.
We could not have been more fortunate and grateful to have Joe leading the way through this process for us. He made himself available at every moment we needed him and went so far above and beyond for us (we were not the easiest to please either!). From start to finish, Joe was professional, knowledgeable and went the extra (hundred) mile(s) to get us the right home at the right price in the best timeframe possible. We thank him from the bottom of our hearts!
Joe is fantastic because he takes his job seriously. If you call him, text him etc, he gets back to you more quickly than anyone I've dealt with in real estate before. He's almost always smiling, courteous & easy to talk to. When I was looking for a home it was clear his main priority wasn't to sell houses but rather help you find the house that's right for you. You won't feel pressured or like you're getting a bad deal with Joe. When we closed on my house, some problems came up with the Seller and Joe fixed it right away. Just because the deal is over doesn't mean he won't still try to make things completely right. Long story short, Joe is fantastic. Would recommend him to anyone.
Joe and Gail are an AMAZING team. Very professional, yet personal. They were able to work around my hectic schedule, and took care of ALL they could for me. I was amazed by all they did...they were always one step ahead, and knew what I needed before I did. Lol...but seriously, they're that good. I will never forget them, and still keep in touch. You couldn't find a better team...if one was busy (since this market is INSAIN right now) the other was right there to do whatever I needed. I can't say enough about them. Plus, Gail had the best advice ever....she helped me save THOUSANDS by taking her advice...I won't say what it is'll have to talk with them you're self...if you've read this far into my's time to call them up and get together. You won't regret it!
Joe took the time to understand what was important to my wife and I. He listed our home and had it under contract within 11 days of hitting the MLS. He took the time to stage our home, come help us fix the dishwasher (post inspection) and overall go above and beyond to ensure the transaction closed on time. Which it did. When finding our next home he took the time to understand our needs and then delivered results that matched our desires. We didn't have to spend much time looking at various properties in random neighborhoods due to the fact that he knows South King County like the back of his hand. He helped us get into our first lake home and for that we are thankful. He negotiated and got us under contract within 24 hours of expressing. Without his expertise and deep roots in the community we would have never gotten into the home. He had a relationship with the seller and was able to get us into the home prior to it being listed on the MLS. This meant less competition and less stress overall. I recommend Joe for your listing and buying needs. He is a true real estate professional and more importantly a good person. We look forward to working with him for years to come as we expand our real estate portfolio.

I enjoy working with Joe because he is honest. I had a very challenging house to sell and he was more than honest with me. He would also share with me the thoughts from any of the potential buyers rather than making me think there was hope in selling the house when the buyer wasn't interested. He was also able to think out of the box to come up with different ideas on how to mitigate the challenges I had with my house. Integrity, honestly and hard working is how I would describe Joe.
Joe is a very NICE person. He knows his business, but he doesn't try and push anything on you. He listens to you. He is always available for questions and showings. He found me my perfect HOME, even though I went through most of the process from out of state in Michigan! He kept me informed through the entire process on what forms to fill out and when. I was never blind-sided by anything. I can't say enough good things about him. He really is a Real Estate Professional.
Joe was great to work with! We had an interested buyer on the day our house was put on the market, the same person who bought our house. With Joe our home selling process was easy and painless, I would recommend him to everyone.
What a guy! Joe was totally professional and super easy to get along with! He gave me great advise and let me call the shots. I wouldn't use any other agent in Seattle! Great job Joe!!!
My wife and I had a great experience with Joe from the outset. We had an idea of what we were looking for and he was able to put together a list of homes in short order which we were able to settle on quickly. Our initial offer was accepted and we closed in a very short amount of time. There were a few administrative items we had to provide but Joe walked us through and we were able to provide quickly without any interruption to our closing date. We have been in our home now for months now and are extremely happy. Joe was able to connect with us and make the experience a good one. Joe is very knowledgeable of the real estate market, methodologies and the local area in terms of where we wanted to settle. Thanks Joe!
Joe is exceptional. We were very pleased with the professionalism and expertise he provided on the recent sale of our home. He arrived, research in hand, ready to answer our questions and provide valuable insights on how best to stage and market our property. He hosted an open house the day after the house went on the market and sold it immediately for our asking price. Throughout the sale process, Joe was responsive to our questions, and provided us with options and advise which easily saved us hundreds of dollars. We highly recommend him as a realtor and will definitely be coming back to him in the future for our real estate needs. (Thanks Joe!)
Excellent experience! I highly recommend Joe. You can be confident that he will listen to exactly what you want and he will work very hard to make sure your transaction is smooth and enjoyable. He is uniquely caring, honest, straightforward, and a true pleasure to work with. A special professional in the real estate industry. A+! Thanks Joe!
We recently closed on a short sale that we thought would never end. Joe was there the entire way and even took us to view homes during the "waiting" period. Since we're first time home buyers we asked many questions, and he was very patient. I would highly recommend Joe as a real estate. 5 months after closing on our home, we still keep in contact today.
Joe Perkins helped us get into a home with many challenges. He came through for us ! He worked extremely hard to make this happen for us. He is professional and would highly recommend his services. I definitely will be using him again!
I hate real-estate salesman. I have bought and sold at least 5 homes. This is the first time I could honestly say there was a salesman who cared about what I wanted. I never thought I would even take the time to write this statement. He is the best one so far. Jim Carns 53 years.
As first time homebuyers we had a LOT of questions. Joe was able to calm our nerves and always responded to us promptly. He was honest and we felt confident that he would find us our home. We ended up buying a foreclosure which can be a nightmare, but Joe worked with us every step of the way and really rallied for us to get the best possible deal and to get us into the house as quickly as possible. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you Joe for all your help!
Joe has completed two transaction for us, one short sale and then a sale of our house. Joe was on top of his game every step of the way. He brought in some extra help with the short sale to get us top dollar and quickly get it off our hands. I have referred Joe to a lot of people that have also really enjoyed Joe's hard work.
I have now worked with Joe in two transactions. The first, Joe helped me sell my condo quicker than I have imagined possible. One year later, Joe helped me purchase my new place. The wonderful thing about Joe is that he is very honest. When I was looking for my current residence, Joe told me up front that some of the areas I wanted to look at were a little questionable and since we have worked together previously, he already knew enough about me to know what I would be comfortable with. Aside from being honest and easy to communicate with, I really do mean it when I say Joe Perkins goes above and beyond for his clients. Although the two transactions seemed easy and painless for me, I do know that there was a lot of stress on the back end. However, Joe reassured me on multiple occasions that it was nothing he couldn't handle (he was right). I would definitely recommend Joe Perkins to anyone looking to buy or sell.
If you've ever purchased a home before in an unfamiliar area before, you know purchasing a home isn't just about the house itself but the element of neighborhood and surroundings is a major factor in the decision making process. After being referred to other agents who showed me houses but left me to research or guess about the rest, I felt very fortunate to find Joe and greatly appreciated his expansive knowledge of the Seattle metro area. Joe could explain exactly which addresses were in good neighborhoods and which one I should skip over. Any questions I had over email were instantly followed up with a phone call and never did I feel pressured into making any decisions. In the end I felt secure in my first home purchase and I'm thrilled with my place! After working with the other agents before him, I guarantee in the Seattle area you won't find a better agent than Joe!
We had met with a few agents before listing our home and are very happy that we selected Joe. He helped us find the sweet spot in terms of pricing and successfully sold our house with very few hassles. His responsiveness and guidance was most appreciated. We are fans and would recommend him to anyone. Thank you Joe!
Our experience was 100% positive. Our realtor Joe not only did an outstanding job on finding my wife and I our dream home at our dream price, he also helped us sell our current home (which was a feat in itself). I love that Joe walked us through the process from beginning to end, and handled so many of the details for us, to lessen our stress. He went above and beyond what most Realtors would have done. He had a genuine interest in getting us into the right home, and not just any home that he could just get his commission on and walk away. Joe really and truly looked out for us as friends, not just clients. Thank you so much!
Joe worked with me and helped me find a great home. He had great recommendations and knew many neighborhoods and areas I would like that were in my price range. He was very prompt and respectful and Joe was very informative throughout the entire buying process so I always knew what to expect. Joe was never "pushy" or anything. He was patient and knowledgeable. Even the home inspector was impressed about his home maintenance and repair knowledge.
Joe was very responsive to us in our search for a home. He was very prompt and thorough and if we were very fortunate to find him. We recommend him to everyone!

Joe Perkins is an experienced, knowledgeable, and very personable Real Estate professional! I've know Joe for about 14 years now. Last year my grandfather passed away and my grandmother had to be moved to a retirement community. The home they lived in for 50+ years had to be sold. I personally had worked for a real estate social media company and had access to the ocean of agent's out there. Many said they could give me the best deal or get my grandparent's home sold quickly, etc., etc. But none of them understood that it wasn't about that. I grew up in this home. This house had meaning to my family. Joe was the only one who realized this and abided by my grandmother's wishes. You see, my grandmother wanted the next owner's to raise a family there, take care of the home like she and my grandfather did. Joe got it! He found the perfect buyer's and once he did, the deal was closed quickly! Like I said before, I know quite a few agent's. Joe Perkins is head and shoulders above the rest!
Joe made looking for houses so much fun. He is witty, easy going and has a great sense of humor. He was very patient with MANY questions and requests to see the same house over and over and over again. He was very knowledgeable of the area and of the houses that fit into my requirements. I was able to contact him at any reasonable time to ask questions. If, for some reason he did not have an answer for me, he was prompt in getting back to me with an answer. He has a great network of professionals that he works with, which makes the process easier. I never had any feeling or indication that I was ever being manipulated or not being told the whole truth. And he always made me feel like I was his most important client. I would HIGHLY recommend Joe to anyone without any hesitation

Area of focus is Kent, Renton and Maple Valley. Washington native that grew up in the area. Has good knowledge of the region.
