We referred to Joe by a trusted friend and definitely understand why he came with such high accolades. We sold our home and bought our new home with Joe’s expertise and were delighted by his knowledge, eye for detail, understanding of the market and clear explanation of what to expect. Processes that can be high stakes and high stress, were as smooth as ever with Joe walking us through them! We had a great experience with Joe and would always turn to him first for any real estate question or issue. He is so thorough and professional – I assure that you will be in the best hands!

We worked with Nicole and Joe Ventura to sell our home and buy another over the summer. This was a complex maneuver for us, as we were out of the country for part of the transaction, and had to deal with a difficult agent on the other side of the home purchase. Joe and Nicole handled everything: they staged our home, prepared and negotiated our offer, and worked hard to close both deals in the space of just a few weeks. They even went out of their way to help with our move. We relied heavily on Joe and Nicole’s expert advice, and when it came time to make hard decisions, they were there to lay out all of the options for us. In the end our home sold for much more than we anticipated (in 4 days, with 12 offers!), and we purchased our dream home a few weeks later. We couldn’t be happier.

Selling our condo and buying a new home was one of the hardest things my husband and I have ever done. Hiring Joe Ventura, was one of the best decisions we ever made. He was thorough, informative and patient with us through the entire process. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change anything. Hands down, Joe Ventura is the best!

This was the first time my husband and I have sold a property, so it was an educational experience for us. Joe guided us through it like the ultimate professional that he is with his excellent communication style. He took the time to really talk thru what to expect when those hours/days of waiting caused anxiousness. Even when we were in uncertain times due to Covid-19, he kept in constant contact and kept us in-the-know with the changing landscape. I would without a doubt recommend Joe to anyone.

We worked with Joe to both sell our current house and buy our next place. Joe is very professional, knowledgable and will go to bat for you. When selling our place, he made sure that we did everything that would needed to be the best place on the market against the competition. He continued to give us advice and walk us through each step of the process. As we search for our new place, he listened to our wants and needs upfront and was able to get a list of places that might fit that criteria. As we continued to see those places, he listened to our feedback and adjusted to places that fit things we wanted. Once we found the place, he helped us move quickly to submit the offer, and negotiate the best terms. He walked us through the process from the buyer side and kept us on track to make sure we knew what was going on and closed on time. Then process from both sides has been so easy and something I didn’t have to worry about with everything else going on. I could go on and on about how great, knowledgable, responsive and easy Joe is to work with. I would highly recommend Joe for anyone that is looking to buy and/or sell a house.

We have used Nicole for multiple transactions and will continue to use her. She helped us buy our first home many years ago and also multiple investment properties including a really challenging reverse 1031 exchange. Our last transaction nearly fell apart because of the complexity but she was able to pull a rabbit out of her hat and was able to close the deal for us. If you need someone that is very knowledgeable, responsible, dedicated, and most importantly cares about you and is relationship driven then Nicole is the right person for you. We always take 5 star ratings with a grain of salt but we recommend her to all of our friends and family because of he ability to get the deal done and also she is super funny.

We recently sold our house with Nicole. This was the first time we had sold a home. Nicole walked us through every step and helped us understand what the buyer would want to see, talked to us about the state of the market, helped us get the house ready to show and then sold with multiple offers in 1 week. We are very grateful for how easy and transparent the whole process was.

Nicole makes the daunting task of buying a house as painless and as exciting a process as it gets. We have used her in the past to purchase a home and using her again was a no brainer for my husband and I. Nicole is patient, knowledgeable, and puts your interests first. After purchasing our recent home, Nicole has tried to convince us to rent our old home instead of putting it up for sale. What kind of realtor does that? Well, the one who treats you like a good friend that has your back. Nicole is our realtor for life – we trust her instincts and her character. We found a keeper!

Prior to my Aunt’s passing in late 2019, she had begun the process of working with Joe to sell her home. One of her last wishes was for my brother and I to work with Joe to sell her house. We made the right choice. As Co-Trustees of her estate, Joe was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in navigating a trust sale. Joe was responsive and proactive in guiding us through the housing market and providing us with the market trends. As my brother and I both live out of the area, his extensive list of vendors and contractors helped us get the house ready for the market. When we received offers on the house, Joe was thoughtful during our discussions and made sure to cover the various pros and cons. Ultimately, when the right offer came in, Joe was supportive in our decision making process and acceptance. I highly recommend Joe and would wholeheartedly work with him again.

We couldn’t have been happier with our friend’s recommendation to use Nicole Ventura as our realtor. She understood our needs and made us feel comfortable with every step in the buying and selling process. Nicole was flexible with our schedules by meeting with us to view properties and field phone calls beyond the hours of a typical work day. She is very knowledgeable about both sides of the buying and selling process. We turned to her for advice in many areas. From handyman repairs and staging our property, to setting a competitive sale price for the market and negotiating the best offer, Nicole gave advice that always served our best interest. What impressed us most about Nicole was how she continued to work with us after our transaction closed. Soon after we moved into our house, we discovered some severe plumbing problems from the pre-sale repair work. Nicole was the first person we called and she handled the rest from there. She stepped in and worked with the selling party on our behalf until we were satisfied with the repairs. This was well above and beyond our expectations of a realtor. We trust Nicole so much that we have recommended her to our friends to give them the same experience we had. We not only think of Nicole as our realtor, but a dear friend.
