Joe was fantastic to work with. From the selling of our home to the purchase of our new home Joe was there with us through every step of the way. He goes far above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done and make you feel comfortable along the way. I can't begin to thank him for everything  he has done for my wife and I through this whole process. He is professional, personable and knows what it takes to get the job done. We plan on never moving again but if we ever do, we hope Joe is still available to help once again

Joe has been a truly exceptional realtor! I chose him based on referrals from friends who personally know him. I certainly was not let down.. He had met and exceeded all of my expectations. Through the entire home buying process he has been professional, accessible and very accommodating of my  crazy schedule as a flight attendant. As a first time home buyer he walked me through every step ensuring that I was informed and comfortable. I never felt stressed and am truly thankful for his services. I would recommend him to any family or friend and look forward to having him as my realtor in my next real estate purchase

Joe did an exceptional job helping my Husband and I find a house in the Alameda, CA area. His knowledge and expertise and the way everything was handled was nothing less than excellent! Not only was he thorough in his quest to find us the perfect house but he was attentive and flexible making the  entire experience enjoyable. I would have no problems referring his name to others - he's one of the best real estate professionals in the area, and I highly recommend him

As a first-time home buyer, I was very nervous and wasn't sure where to turn to find a realtor. One of my neighbors highly recommended Joseph LoParo, I'm very glad he did.  The whole process went smoothly, Joe was always quick to respond to any emails, texts or calls.  He made sure I knew what to  expect every step of the way. I'm proud to say I'm now a first-time homeowner and very grateful to the Joseph LoParo!

Joe is extremely knowledgeable, regarding the current market, and worked extremely hard to answer my questions He made me feel confident and comfortable throughout the process. I have met so many realtors who try and rush to get to the end, but Joe has never made me feel this way. I appreciate his honestly and dedication!!!

Joe was recommended through a friend of ours. Buying a house is a really intimidating process - most people never spend more on anything else in their entire life not to mention the upkeep and the future of the place that you buy - ohhh the pressure!
Joe was a great resource because he has a  family and knew the stress of wanting to buy the right house for your family (in my case future family) and the stress of making sure you're making the right decision.
He was patient with my worries and questions - without coming off the wrong way, Joe was able to make light of a seemingly serious situation and his personality just helped you to feel comfortable with him and with a big decision. He always made sure that this entire process is up to us and what we were feeling.
I would recommend Joe to anyone, but its really nice to know that there is a genuine family man out there wanting to help make a decision for you in your best interest instead of his own.

We hired Joe as our real estate agent to sell our house earlier this year and couldn't have been happier.  Not only did Joseph list our property, but he actively marketed it and was able to bring us a buyer within the first 30 days. His proactive approach, market knowledge, and business network  helped us to get the price that we wanted without having to sacrifice our sanity. Joe made great suggestions along the way that really brought our house up to par and helped get us ready for the home inspection portion that I was worried about. I would highly recommend Joe to anyone looking for an agent to represent them in the sale of their home!

This review is specially in regards to the agent Joseph LoParo. I was lucky enough to have Joe help me last year when I was moving down to Alameda, CA and did not know a thing about the area. Not only is he very professional and knowledgeable about Alameda and it’s surrounding cities as a whole, he  goes out of his way to help you and makes you feel like his main priority. I would not hesitate to enlist his realtor services again and I make it a point to pass his contact information on to friends that are also looking to move in the Alameda area. I can't say enough good things about him.

Joseph LoParo is a class-act real estate agent that made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process of searching for and securing a home. I had my reservations upon entering the home-finding realm as it was my first time, but Joseph immediately quelled them with his easy-going demeanor,  genuine character and friendliness. His attention to detail and knowledge of real estate affairs cannot be understated and it shined through in everything he did to help me. I am already skeptical about my next real estate encounter because I doubt it will be as amazing as this one.

I started looking at homes on my own, thinking I could do it. Wow, was I wrong.  I had worked with Joseph in the past on some different projects and I knew I could trust him.  I can say that Joseph has been a tremendous influence in helping me with finding the perfect home for myself and my family.   He was punctual, attentive, and willing to go the extra mile to make sure I was comfortable with my decision.  I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy a home.

It was an absolute pleasure to work Joe while we searched for our first home.  He was professional, responsive and very knowledgeable about the entire process.  We had many hiccups along the way and Joe was always there to guide us in the correct direction and offer her valuable opinion.  We never  felt pressured or obligated to just "settle".  Rather we continued to look (a lot!) until we find our home that met our wants and needs.  I know for a fact that without Joe I would not be typing this review in my new home! 

We couldn't be happier with the service that Joseph provided during the entire process.  He is without a doubt  someone that you can trust to guide you through all the ups and downs of purchasing a home and maintain your best interests.  I would highly recommend any home buyer to contact Joe first.

Joe was an instrumental part of the team that helped me sell a million-plus home in Alameda. Joe took the time to go all the way through all of the systems and then recommend what was needed. He even made some of the modifications himself to help get the job done. Joe's experience as a former  building contractor provides more practical experience that that of an average real estate professional.

After my father passed away, Joe handled the sale of several rental properties in 2007 or 2008.  I know the property values were dropping at the time, but he was able to sell all 3 properties.

My experience with Joe LoParo was amazing.  The housing market is a little crazy in Nor Cal to say the least.  Joe got me into a house in two months and that included the very fast 27 days to close escrow.  Anytime I reached out to Joe with questions about a listing he would get back to me  immediately.  I never had to wait long to hear back from him.  We saw several houses, some needed a little work, some needed a lot of work.  The house that Joe got me into was move in ready.  Great neighborhood, cute house, great experience.  I would recommend Joe to anyone
Barbara Kinney

Joe is a consummate professional that understands time is of the essence, details matter and communication is vital to successful closing of deals.  He knew our situation would be a challenge to the closing, but he never deviated from his customer first work ethic.  We were fortunate enough to  close in the coveted Bayport community and we believe he had as much as a factor in our closing as much as timing (right place right time).  He has been a pleasure to work with and I have and highly recommend him.

My wife and I needed a quick sale and from the moment we listed our home with Joe he went right to work. He scheduled open houses for the following two weekends and had hundreds of potential buyers view our property as well as many individual showings during that time. There was no question that  our property was well advertised and that any potential buyer had ample opportunity to see it. After the second open house Joe started accepting offers. By the end of that third week Joe had negotiated one of those offers up to a full price offer ! Once the negotiations were done he moved the process through  the closing without a hitch. Joe took care of everything and kept us informed every step of the way.
            Joe's professionalism and expertise through the whole process was outstanding and quite frankly you just won't find a nicer guy to work with.
            I highly recommend Joe Loparo.

The process of purchasing my home was actually pretty free of drama and stress due to Joe's expertise. He has outstanding knowledge of the real estate landscape in Alameda where I wanted to purchase a home. Joe worked for many years as a general contractor which is a major asset especially during  the inspection phase. He was always extremely responsive and organized. He was very flexible working around my very busy work schedule. He goes far beyond what anyone could expect from their broker - I highly recommend him!
Margaret May

When my wife and I started looking for a home we talked to Joe. He was very knowledgeable and we felt comfortable with him. we started looking and many homes we finally had out offer accepted.

Joe was very helpful in with the inspections also he crawled under the house with our inspectors  and even in the attic. He explained all of the issues brought up by the inspectors.  He even helped me put electrical circuit in for the dryer we bought.

I highly recommend Joe, he goes far beyond what anyone would expect of a Real Estate Broker.
Jose Romo

Joe is one of the best realtors in town. Joe works hand-in-hand with his clients to make sure that he can find the property that is right for his client’s needs. If you’re looking for a realtor that operates with integrity, I would highly recommend that you call Joe.

We were fortunate to have Joe Loparo. We started our search in Nov 2012 for our home. We had no idea our search would last so long to find the home we wanted. We submitted over 40 offers for homes and had to view well over 100 to find the home we finally  submitted a successful offer for. We were in a competitive price range where many first time homebuyers and many investors were competing for these properties. Joe never abandoned us nor made us feel like we were a burden to him. We were treated like we were about to submit for our first home on every offer and he kept us enthused and convinced that we would become successful. He never rushed us to make an offer or accept a house we were not excited about. He would say “I want you to be happy in your home when we are finished”. We finally found our home and that came back on the market and submitted a bid within an hour of its return on the market. The sellers excepted, anxious to complete the sale that had already started with another buyer If not for his diligence we would not have been able to complete this sale.

I would highly recommend Joe to assist anyone in their search for a home or sell their home. His patience is unbelievable and his passion to help people is unrelenting. Even after we found our home and moved in, we found a washer / dryer and brought it home. We only had gas, and the dryer was electric. When we told Joe, he came over and ran a new circuit to the electric panel, installed new breaker and he had my dryer running in a few hours.

He spent many years as a General Contractor and knows the building and repair of homes. He climbed through the house with our termite and home inspector, both commenting how they have never had a agent accompany them in the crawl space and attic. His experience also helped explain to us repairs that were important to do immediately and things we could wait on.

thank you Joe

When purchasing our first home, Joe made my family feel comfortable and safe. We trusted him and all his skills and knowledge. He made sure we knew what was best and helped us every step of the way.  He knows his job and is someone we recommend to others and plan to use again in our future.

With Joe we recently purchased a home. Joe is by far the best realtor that we have worked with. He remained committed, helpful and contentious throughout the purchase process and well after closing as we continued to ask for his help and advice. Would absolutely use again and would highly recommend.

Joe was an exceptional realtor for me and my family. He was very helpful, attentive, thorough and was always there to answer questions along the way. He was able to get a quick turnaround on my house, and we couldn't recommend him more!

Joseph LoParo is one of the most honest and professional real estate agents out there. He has such a dedication to the community he lives and works in. We have worked with Joe for about 3 years doing termite inspections for him and he is such a stand up guy. I recommend all of my family and friends who are looking to buy or sell their home to Joe. You can't go wrong with Joe because he will go the extra mile for you.

Joe sold our house quickly and easily, even with a few unexpected issues that popped up. He was always positive and easy to work with.

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Joe was absolutely professional and communicative. He really is the best realtor that I've ever met. When the sale of my house took longer than expected because of bank issues, Joe worked tirelessly and was absolutely patient and thorough to get the job done! Thanks for everything, Joe!
