“I was referred to Joe as I relocated to Chicago. He was very professional, as well as patient. I did not know the City, nor the neighborhoods. Joe helped me find what was right for me. I recently referred a colleague to Joe. She was very happy as well. Joe is reliable, professional, and trustworthy. I highly recommend him."

No matter how long my process may take he is always willing to go that extra step, extra mile and extra time to help me (even if I don't know what I want). He has a passion for his field and I appreciate his ability to allow the customer to decide and never force his view. He is my realtor and I don't mind sharing. Try him and you'll see. Thanks for your service Joe. Keep up the good work."

"I have known Joe Held since we worked together at RE/MAX few years ago. While working together, Joe was a team player and was our "go to" man relaying information coming from above in the RE/MAX system. As I am an agent with over twenty years experience, I can say that I have seen many an agent come and go. I am glad to see that Joe has been successful, despite the economic storm we seem to be coming out of that has had it's toll on the real estate industry. The reason that I am glad for Joe is because first of all, Joe is a really decent human being, and deserves the providence. Plain and simple. Secondly, he is knowledgeable and experienced in his professional capacity as a Realtor, and furthermore, he has in depth experience that goes far beyond the normal call of duty of listings and sales, due to his desire to take on positions of responsibility in the RE/MAX organization volunteerily and to continually educating himself in his field. Thirdly, Joe is a great guy to work with in many ways --as a co-worker, which I have presonally experienced. Joe has been a great guy to work with in an agent/client relationship, as I have seen working along side of him in the office. In closing, let me add that even AFTER we no longer worked in the same office, Joe could be counted on, as a friend within the same profession, to take time out of his busy schedule, to give me his opinion on price and marketing. I had a listing that I wanted to get a few valued opinions by some high quality agents in order to see the listing go from Active to Sold to Closed. I asked Joe and two other agents to come by a tell me what they thought. All three agents I chose carefully. All three were agents I knew and trusted. I valued their knowledge and points of view. Together at that sole meeting, we formed what could be called a "mastermind" to obtain a concentrated assessment of the situation, and come up with an action plan, which ended up being a prescription for success. That property did sell and close. Thanks again Joe! I think anyone can understand why it is a pleasure to recomend you!"
