I cannot recommend Joe Suarez highly enough. I purchased a property in Sarasota sight unseen from NY. Joe went above and beyond in every way. My husband and I are both real estate agents in NY and his service was unparalleled. Even while on vacation, Joe put in extra effort making sure every detail was taken care of and our deal went through flawlessly If you need an agent in the Sarasota area I highly recommend Joe.

Joe helped us find exactly the beautiful house and neighborhood we were looking for, even though most of our search was done from hundreds of miles away. He was always responsive, prepared, and helpful throughout the process. Through effective, intuitive communication, he knew what would feel like home to us. Agents like Joe are hard to find.

We just wanted to say thank you again for helping us purchase our new home in Lakewood Ranch. What started out as an introduction to the Florida real estate market, turned into our second home in less than 5 weeks! We could not have accomplished such a timetable without your prompt and professional support during every step of the process. You were always there for us with answers, advice, and important background info on the market dynamics and insight on the local area. We thoroughly enjoyed what can often be a stressful process because you made it easy! Best of luck!

My fiancé and I had been looking for a home in the Sarasota area for almost 4 months before we had a good fortune of being introduced to Joe Suarez. He quickly identified and understood the type of community and home we were looking for. He was attentive to our price point, as well as what we wanted in our new home. Because of his thoroughness, he saved us a bunch of time looking through homes online that didn’t meet our criteria. In fact he went out of his way to ensure we were only seeing the homes that met our wants and needs. From the day he became our agent, to the day we closed on our home we never felt like he was trying to sell us a home or pressured in any way. In fact the relationship was more like that of a friend who is trying to help his friends find exactly what they were looking for and he did just take. My fiancé and I have referred friends and family of ours to Joe, and we won’t hesitate to refer others in the future who are also looking for a new home in the Sarasota area. He really is the kind of real estate agent you want on your side in any market, but especially the hot market that Florida has become.

We can’t say enough about our experience with Joe. We came down for a week from Chicago to begin a search for a rental home/second home. As soon as we were introduced to Joe, he launched a plan for us. In a low inventory market, he still lined up over a dozen viable options for us - all of which were right on the bullseye of what we were looking for. And he brought in-depth analysis for each property, with comps and $/sq. ft. data. Which made it very easy for us to quickly hone in on the best options. After our week was up, Joe kept looking. Within hours of arriving back home, Joe lined up 4 more properties – which he took us through himself with FaceTime. He accurately advised us on the offer we made – and we landed the best house of the week. Joe is a great guy, very personable and very empathetic to the nuances of what was important to us. We really felt like he instantly became an advocate for us. What could have been a highly stressful week turned into a delight – and a fruitful one – all thanks to Joe.

Dilligent and responsive - My experience with Joe was outstanding! The housing market in Florida for buyers is challenging to say the least. Joe was extremely responsive to my calls and emails. His knowledge of the neighborhoods and the builders in the market we were focused on was incredible. He has a large network of Realtor's he works with, that provide him updates of upcoming listings and allows him to be timely with his clients. He is an extremely good listener and couldn't have been happier with my Real Estate experience.

Respectful & Responsive Joe was wonderful to work with! Very responsive and respectful of our budget and timeline. He is kind and cares about his clients. He is a Florida native and understands the market and area very well. Big bonus! Thank you, Joe!

I was referred to Joe Suarez by a neighbor in my apartment complex when I shared I was looking to buy during the great migration to Florida. Joe and I spent time discussing my needs, thresholds and neighborhoods of consideration. Joe was very transparent of who he is and how he worked. Every time we viewed a new property, Joe would perform an initial evaluation or inspection inside and out. The best part about working with Joe was he was focused on answering my questions, listening to my concerns and ultimately, allowing me to decide. I would recommend him to anyone and have. I look forward to working with him on my next purchase.

Joe helped us find the perfect home! He listens, asks questions and really spends the time to identify homes that fit most if not all of your needs. We had nearly given up due to the crazy market we are in, but Joe kept looking, gave us great information, encouragement and did find us that perfect home. He was with us every step of the way during this process and even stepped in without hesitation for us during the inspections, etc. when we couldn't be there. He is friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, honest, insightful and all around top notch. If you want all that and more, look no further than Joe! He is a 1st class agent who will go above and beyond for you! Thank you Joe for everything you have done for us! We appreciate you!

by Barbara Geiger

Joe was fantastic right from the start. He made our move from Chicago to Florida so easy. He did virtual walk throughs for us and ultimately found our house 30 min from when it got posted and we were able to beat the bidding war that would have followed. He really cares and went above and beyond. He knows the market and is very honest.

by The Kalsto's

One day was all we had and all it took! We are from out of state, Joe quickly honed in on what we needed and we found 3 homes in one day. He helped us figure out how much to offer and it was accepted.. Couldn’t be happier with Joe! Before close it helped us out immensely, he was our eyes in Tampa. Highly recommend!

by Cindy and Jim Zammit

Very knowledgeable with amazing patience! Joe educated us on the various neighborhoods and builders in Lakewood Ranch. He kept us informed of all new listings and advised us on value at each property we looked at. He was available on a moments notice!

by Marcel McLaughlin

Finest agent in Lakewood Ranch Joe is a very professional agent. He cares about his clients and finding the right home for them. He is patient and answers all of your questions without hesitation. Buying from another state is very difficult and he walks you through the process and gives his honest professional opinion. I highly recommend him to all.

by Janelle Famularo

Joe will work hard for you! We started the whole process with a fairly negative attitude, we loved our home and our neighborhood and we really didn't want to sell, but we wanted to make some money in what turned out to be a changing market. Joe stayed on top of everything for us, he was encouraging, prepared to do and try anything that he thought might help us get a good result. We were very happy with his service in the end and will definitely use him again in the future, although we're never moving again! Thank you Joe!!

by Rich and Simone Rose

Joe is as good as there is. Professional yet caring. Goes far beyond selling houses. He goes out of his way to help his clients like family, before and after the sale. Volunteered to help with move in chores that had nothing to do with the actual purchase of the home he found for us. You won’t find anyone anywhere that finds ways to help his clients like Joe does.
