People say the nicest things

I know how busy life can be, so it means a lot to me when people take the time to write a testimonial about their experience working with me.

Above and beyond. I decided to buy a house at a very interesting time. Joel helped guide me through a tumultuous and confusing market, racing against rising interest rates, and all the while he was a total pro. Keeping his calm and his sense of humor. I leaned very heavily on Joel`s years of knowledge and experience; I just gave him my wish list and he did all the heavy lifting. And in the end, I found my magical dream house that checked all the boxes.

“Joel is quite a professional. The sale that he helped us with took place during Covid and its ever-changing landscape. Joel was able to adjust and adapt to this strange situation with care and was able to maintain a sense of humor at the same time. And we sellers live in 3 different states on top of that. A job truly well done.”

“Buying a second home in a city we did not live in seemed like a daunting task... luckily we had Joel. Not only did he meet with us virtually to gain insight prior to our in-person search, he spent time listening to our needs during the walk-throughs to help navigate and help us hone in on the home and amenities we were hoping to purchase. Navigating the current Palm Springs market with high demand, land lease stipulations, all in the dead of summer heat, was no small task. Joel did it with ease, knowledge, optimism, and a smile on his face at all times. Joel was extremely easy to work with and helped my spouse and I land a killer home and with a steal of a deal. 10/10 recommend Joel!”

“I was a first time homebuyer, Joel was incredible!!! He helped us every step of the way. My Husband and I had such a great experience and we owe it all to Joel. You hear about so many people that have friends and family that are real estate agents as a part-time job and most people with go with  them because they are afraid to put themselves out there, I get it. But this is Joel’s full-time job, he takes the time needed to get it done. He was available to us during the day, the evenings and on the weekends, he definitely goes the extra mile and he is dedicated to making sure that you are happy and comfortable with your purchase. I made a great friend...call Joel, he’s the right man for the job!!!”

“Home is where the heart is and Joel Vendette is the best real estate agent in California to help you find the perfect place. He has guided us to buying the perfect homes and he’s helped us sell to the perfect buyers. Joel will guide you with precision to the dwelling that will fulfill your needs. Our lives wouldn’t be as amazing without Joel, he has a gift and where we live is very important and he takes that seriously. He puts you first & is an honest agent. Joel leaves no stone unturned and in the end your dreams come true.”
-Shauna M.

“Our initial intent was to “screen” at least 3 realtors, Joel was the first and only: we couldn’t imagine anyone with qualities that exceeded his. He has a wonderful manner of calming any anxiety that a client might have; we felt like we had a personal friend guiding us each step of the way.

The process can be very burdensome at times, however he has a great way to lighten things up, to make it interesting and fun while offering assurance and any necessary guidance.”
-Rocco P.

“Joel came highly recommended by a family friend when my partner and I were looking for a house, and he lived up to the hype. His affable, open manner endeared us right away, but more importantly he really listened to our needs. He was super available, provided us with a great selection of listings, and drove us tirelessly around the city to open houses, asking all the right questions. This process can get stressful, and the attitude of the agent by your side can make a huge difference. We came to Joel already feeling burned out (we’d been looking for a while) but found his enthusiasm was infectious, and his attention to detail assured us we were in capable hands. Once we found our dream home, he was also incredibly helpful and knowledgable throughout the negotiation and inspection process, all the way to closing. So grateful!
-Sava D.

“I have known Joel for many years, so the decision to use him was an easy one. What I had not expected was the level of care and expertise he offered me. He walked me through every detail, followed up on every document and kept involved even after closing. I highly recommend him for your purchase, sale or rental. It could not have been easier!”
-Wendy N.

“We had been searching for a house since the bubble burst hoping to get a foot in the door, only to be repeatedly outbid by investors and all cash offers. Fast forward to a few months ago when Joel got on board. He took us to see lots of places, even in locations I wasn’t even considering until he helped me look at the bigger picture. We once saw 8 houses in one day, in 100° heat, and he still managed to stay optimistic and full of enthusiasm. When we finally opened escrow I could tell he was more excited than I was ;). Through the entire escrow he always made sure I knew exactly what was happening and what the next step was. Come to think of it... he called and emailed me way more than I did him - talk about service!! He helped me get the keys to my first home and made it totally fun start to finish. Thanks Joel!!”
-Haisha R.

“Joel is exceptional!! He not only was very knowledgeable of the market but he took the time to really understand our personal situation. Throughout the process he proved to be professional, patient, organized, and responsive.  He was always available to answer questions and talk things through. We highly recommend using Joel for your home purchase or sale.”
-Grace S.

“If you are looking for an incredibly caring and super dedicated real estate agent, who also has an ultra-strong work ethic and makes home buying fun, Joel is your man!!!”
-Jeremy B.

“Whether you are renting, buying or selling, I would recommend Joel Vendette to any one of my friends.  He really knows the business and is honest, straightforward and as professional as they come.  You would be lucky to have the opportunity to work with Joel Vendette.  I know I was.”
-Cathy C.

“Joel has acted as my agent on both the sale of my Sherman Oaks condo and the purchase of my house in Tarzana.

I couldn’t be happier with his service and plus, he’s a great guy.  Very easy to work with and goes above and beyond!

I recommend him highly and will be using him again as I look for investment properties.”
-Bill T.

“Thank YOU for your guidance! I’m glad you knew what we wanted when we didn’t.”
-Rachel G.

“I love this guy. I was really put off by our last realtor and was reluctant to trust another recommendation, but so glad I did! We only ended up looking at places for two days until he found us our dream home. It was almost unheard of, but he somehow was able to get our bid to the front and open escrow 4 days after the house was listed. He made the process so smooth and easy, and driving around in LA traffic never got stressful with him, which says a lot... I almost wish we hadn’t found our place so quickly!”
-JR S.

“Joel was so amazing to work with! We used him to find a year rental of a house that would also take our 150 lb malamute and just recently to buy our 1st house. Fun, personable and honest about everything, Joel kept in communication with us every step of the way and made the process way less stressful and fun.

Highly recommend!”
-Bridget G.

“Joel had tireless energy and enthusiasm as we looked for a Santa Monica condo as an investment property. His keen eye and insight helped us find the perfect property and the sale went through without a hitch. Nine years later, when we decided to sell, Joel handled everything including getting us expert stagers and dealing with complex city requirements. We had multiple offers over asking price and closed quickly. From beginning to end, Joel Vendette was a consummate professional. He has our top recommendation.”
