Joe helped us buy a house right in the midst of the Corona pandemic. We had been looking for some time prior and only when we got in touch with Joe did our dreams become reality. The entire process couldn't have been more flawless. We were on a time crunch and Joe delivered! Great patience with my family and we couldn't be happier with the purchase. Thank You, Joe! We will see you for the next one!!!

My family was placed in the difficult position of having to sell our mother's home to help continue funding for her nursing home dementia care. Joe couldn't have been more compassionate, patient and caring. He was recommended by a good friend, and we never looked back. His communication is excellent, he was always available through our silly questions. He was patient with our emotions and tears, and he even came to the house one day to help us clear out what remained in the house for donation. Who does that anymore! The sale was clean, there were no bumps. Joe is now considered a family friend, and he will be our go-to if we are ever in the need for real estate expertise in the future. I've since recommended him to neighbors who are now being taken care of by him for the sale of their home after the wife recently passed away unexpectedly.


    I can't begin to say enough great things about Joe. I was in a really bad situation with my home and thought I was never going to be able to sell it. No realtor wanted to help me and then by some miracle I came across Joe and he decided to give me a chance. The selling process was long and difficult and at times I lost hope but Joe was very encouraging and persistent. When I finally sold my home a huge weight came off my shoulders and now I'm finally free. I don't know how but I'm glad I came across Joe. He really pulled me through towards the finish line and I can't begin to thank him enough. Thank you again Joe! Travis Jordan
    Joe and his team are the absolute best. They did far more than I would ever expect, including getting bids from trusted contractors for remodeling after we had already closed. I have commercial properties and have bought and sold many properties on my own. In general, I find realtors get in the way and prolong the process. Not the case with Joe. He is a real asset to both buyers and sellers and one of the very few excellent realtors I have ever dealt with. I began the process of buying my first vacation home in Florida in 2017 with another realtor who could never get a deal closed. I began renting in Kissimmee in November of 2020 and tried in earnest to close on a home during COVID, but still could not get a deal done. After leaving my realtor I met Joe and he was great. We got a deal done that was more complex than most and when my lender couldn?t finance it, he put me in touch with another mortgage broker who got it done very quickly and smoothly. I now consider Joe and Rachel friends and look forward to working with them on my next vacation rental early next year. They really need more than 5 stars for Joe. Stephen Kretschek
    Joe is a true professional.His integrity , market knowledge, pricing expertise, and negotiating skills are of the highest caliber.On top of that he is one of the nicest and most honorable people that I know.He also got our home sold and to the closing table in 30 days.I wouldn?t work with anyone else either selling or listing. Mark Ehrli
    We enjoyed working with Joe and with Rachel. It was a pleasant experience. I really wasn?t surprised with some of the problems along the way, they are to be expected. Joe and Rachel were great, and we would certainly recommend them highly for their friendly and very professional management of our real estate sale, and would use them again if needed. Garry Smith
    Joe did an excellent job selling and marketing our listing he kept me informed the whole way Rick & Nancy D
    Joseph was easy to work with and got the process of selling started during our first meeting by prepping for the MLS listing. He provided quality services including great real estate photography for the lowest price of any local Orlando realtor. I would definately sell with him again. Scott
    Joe is very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. He made it a stress-free process for us. Ashkan & Nasim
    Joseph was the difference maker in our search for our new home here in Florida. He immediately got to know and understand what we were searching for and, in a matter of hours had a list of homes to look at. Throughout the closing process, Joe handled matters for us to reduce our stress and keep everything on track. We were blessed to have found Joseph and Rachael! Harry & Lisa S
    Joe and his assistant Rachael are amazing. I had a quite an unusual request in the fall of 2019. I wanted to buy and have him be my eyes through the whole process, because I was buying from out of state. I'd built up savings for 5 years, but we kept watching the prices go up. My wife and I were thinking we might retire to Florida, and took a chance on Joe representing us. He had come highly recommended by a local realtor in Salt Lake who knew a few people in Florida and then interviewed Joe and Rachael. That sale occurred December 10, 2019. And then Covid hit. And that changed a lot for us. And a grandson was born this past February, 2021. We made a decision in January to move our assets close to home, and hoped to sell the place in Florida eventually. Then, on March 12, we pitched the idea to Joe, with a question; Can you sell it by June 1? Then we considered more and hoped he might sell it sooner. And Joe sold it at fair market value by April 7! It went very smoothly because Joe handled all conversations professionally and expediently. I was so happy I didn't have to hold 2 homes at the same time, and the sale occurred two days before our purchase in Utah. It's really an amazing transaction. And who can do that? Joe and Rachael can do that! I could trust them to do everything possible to represent us fairly. And their network of support is strong on everything from HOA issues to home repairs and lawn care. They are really established there in Orlando and know their trade. The very best! Gerard & RunQing
    It was a real pleasure working with Joe. He was professional, prompt, and courteous. Would hire him without any reservations. Ruben Santos
    White glove treatment from start to finish and couldn't be happier with the result. We were worried about the volatility in the housing market and unsure if our property would sell for asking price. We interviewed several brokers and the nonsense started early. One broker went as far as telling us our asking price was too high and we should consider dropping the number by $50k before even listing. Another told us that we should spend close to $20k in repairs and renovations . Finally we interviewed Joe and he was a breath of fresh air. After signing with his firm, we immediately started getting offers and was able to close with 60 days for the ASKING PRICE! I cannot say enough about how amazing both Joe and Rachel are. Do yourself a favor and hire them. Jermaine & Vidya
    Joe made everything from the start smooth and stress free. He not only, calmed all my concerns with his years of expertise, but went above and beyond by providing me information I didnt even think about to ensure I made the best possible decision. Throughout the entire process, Joe never lost sight of what we wanted out of house, unlike other realtors we've worked with in the past. I cannot recommend Joe and his team enough to anyone looking for a home. Without hesitation I would recommend Joe to any family or friend that is looking for a home. Alex E
    My working relationship with Mr. Doher was very professional. He was very accountable, responsible and efficient; same for his assistant Rachael. I would gladly use his services again. Stephen H
    My experience with Joseph, Rachael and their crew was incredibly great. I can?t recommend them enough. They guided me through every detail, making the frightening prospect of selling a house very easy and profitable for me. You seriously could find no better group to work with. Craig A
    Since the very first call I had with Joe and his team I felt they had my best interest at heart. I have checked out many realtors due to a previous bad experience and Joe was 100% different. Him and his team are dedicated to working with you to not only sell your place and get you the best deal but making you feel safe each steep of the way and protected. I could not recommend them any higher. I will forever be grateful for helping us achieve our dream. Anda & Westley
    Great Service an very professional. Basu S
    I don't typically do testimonials . I will say that Joe was there every step of the way and very helpful, knowledgeable and professional . I would hire him if I were you. Jack & Christine W

    Joseph and his team did an excellent job to sell my home. They were quick to respond to any questions and always have good recommendations when there was a need to choose different paths. The choice of closing professionals were also very good and efficient. Highly recommended ! Alan
    Recently I worked with Joe again on the selling of 2 homes and the purchase of a new home. As I experienced with him in previous times, his experience, knowledge and savvy as a realtor is simply unmatched. He works tirelessly towards the absolute best possible experience of buying/selling a home. Regardless of day or time, Joe is highly responsive. He is always friendly and is passionate about what he does (and it shows.) Buying/selling a home can be stressful to say the least. Joe removes all of that and takes on the task of ensuring the most seamless process possible for his clients. Recommending Joe to others is easy- he's an exceptional realtor with a great demeanor to work with, who works hard to ensure his clients are satisfied! I'm grateful to have had the chance to work with Joe again! Shane
    I would really like to give a 200% recommendation to Joe, he was spectacular. My Wife and I were super pleased with his knowledge, it was like he was buying for himself. The house he got us is perfect. He was on top of everything, his network was obviously ready to help us, from landscaper to inspector. Thanks Joe!!!! George
    Joe was totally involved in the process of selling our home from beginning to end. Joe kept us fully informed and answered all of our questions. All of this was done while we reside in North Carolina. He exceeded all of his responsibilities! Max & Barbara
    Working with Joe and Rachel at Berkshire Hathaway was the best decision my wife and I could have made. They made sure we had the house ready for the market, and when we put the house on the market on Friday, we had a contract by Sunday. Joe and Rachel made the process so easy for us, and they could not have been any more accommodating to what we had hope for throughout the process. They were on top of all paperwork, and made this process extremely simple!! Thank you Joe and Rachel for everything, and we will call no one else when we want to buy or sell again! GREAT TEAM!!!!!! - Tommy and Patti Novak Tommy
    Joe and his team are excellent at what they do. constant communication Updates. Hans
    Joe and Rachael were absolutely amazing to work with. We were new to Florida and they helped us explore multiple neighborhoods and communities and led us to the community where we built our new home. They were with us throughout the build process helping us with the lot selection, bank financing, contract with the builder, building inspection, walk throughs etc., right through to the closing. They were our eyes and ears when we couldn't be around and they helped us find a temporary place to live as we awaited completion of the new home. We couldn't be happier with the service they provided and the friendly manner in which they conducted themselves. We'd highly recommend them for your real estate needs! Patrick and Beth Ann Aivazian
    Working with Joe as a builder has been unbelievable. Early on I could see Joe's forward thinking in the central Florida market thus using his broad knowledge, but realistic understanding on existing home sales and the new home sales market it was going to be a good fit. Coming from a family where I was one of 3 children that both my bother and sister along with both my mother and father were all real estate brokers for nearly 50 years here in Osceola County, which have either past on or have since retired. So after finding someone like Joe with his patience and extensive knowledge of the process it has truly been a great fit for my company. I couldn't have connected with a better sales team and feel grateful for the way it's worked out. Mark
    Joe was great and got my house sold in 4 days. The pics and listing were excellent and he kept me informed through the entire process and always responded extremely quick. Easiest experience selling a house I've ever had. Shaun
    Great experience working with Joe and all the assistance he offered with my home renovations. He definitely goes above and beyond. Highly recommend! Julie Ann SIpos
    Joe has been an awesome agent. He has handled both a purchase and a sale for me and was always professional, courteous and prompt. He has great back up in Rachael. She is extremely talented and as a team, were always there to any, and everything that needed to be done on time. You will get nothing but an honest answer and hard work from them. It helps to make a stressful situation much better. Robert & Deborah
    Joe Doher and his team did an amazing job marketing and selling our condo. We needed a fast sale and Joe was able to get us a full price offer in only 2 weeks! The entire process was flawless, and Joe's knowledge of the local market proved to be invaluable. His level of professionalism and commitment to excellence is second to none. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. 6 stars! Mark Defuso
    I am extremely happy I chose Joe to sell my condo. He was always available to answer my question, communicated with me on a regular basis, and was always professional. No question was too dumb or insignificant. Joe really knew the market and gave me excellent advice going to market and considering offers. Joe was diligent, upbeat and confident he could sell my place - and he was right. He also went above and beyond many times like removing some of my personal belongings when I left them and moved out of town. I highly recommend Joe when looking for a realtor. Deborah
    Joseph Doher did an amazing job from start to finish. His professionalism and real estate experience made our selling experience great! Additionally, Joseph genuinely cares about people, he treated us like a friend, rather than a client. I would, and will recommend Joseph and Berkshire Hathaway to everyone. Bret & Christen
    Being in the military for 20 years, I have moved a lot. The level of service and commitment we received from Joseph Doher was excellent. We were apprehensive about selling our house and who we could find that would meet our standards. But from the moment we met with Joseph we knew that we had made the right choice. Joseph took the time to understand our objectives and then worked to make them a reality. He kept us up-to-date on the progress of our sale, and was available 24/7. We took comfort in knowing that he had everything under control. I can?t say enough about the expertise, attentiveness, and professionalism we received from Joseph. Stephen & Bonnie
    Five Stars!!! A pleasure to work with! Had my place sold for asking price in no time at all! THANK YOU! Lori DeFuso
    The buyer was out of the country, and communication proved challenging. Joe was always patient and professional. He always had our best interests at heart. We also sold our old home purchased a new home a year and a half ago with Joe. We hadn't purchased a home in 17 years. once again, he was patient and showed countless properites and allowed us to take our time in making a final decision. No matter what side of the realtor table he is on, Joe is charasmatic, well liked and professional. Pmcfx1
    Joe helped us find our dream home. He guided us every step of the way and always had answers to our questions. He was extremely helpful and we are very grateful we had someone like Joe with all his experience and connections. We could not be happier and it wouldn?t have happened without him. Rachel? was always very helpful too. Their sense of urgency helped us secure the home in a market that is very competitive and we were lucky to find a team like them. User89868324
    Joe is a likeable guy and easy to work with. l found him very responsive usually responding almost immediately to my text or emails. He helped get the deal done, which I realize I could not have done without him. suzanne vazquez
    "5" stars all the way for Joe! Everything about the buying experience was smooth. Joe's communication skills are excellent and kept us in the "know" from start to finish. We found him to have high integrity and extreme professionalism. I have no qualms in referring Joe to family or friends. Thanks Joe, for a job well done. User2634812
    Joseph is one of the best realtors I have worked with in the industry, he was knowledgeable about the market, formulated a game plan, executed against the plan, and over communicated during the process. He overcame the challenge of selling my condo during the pandemic by being respectful and friendly to the tenants and prospective buyers, and was well prepared with masks, gloves, and supplies. He set reasonable expectations and exceeded those in every way. I highly recommend Joseph Doher to anyone if they are looking to sell or purchase a home. Benjamin Young
    Joe's quick responsiveness was a delight. He kept in contact with us regularly and made sure we knew exactly what to expect. Joe's level of experience was clear in the way he anticipated the details in advance and was always prepared for the next steps. If you want a realtor that is on the ball, choose Joe Doher. Rebecca Bryan
    I am so glad that I selected Joseph Doher to list and sell my home! His knowledge, experience, professional network, availability and negotiating skills were evident with the cash offer I received within 5 days of listing my home. He and his staff walked me through the process of establishing the? selling price, understanding the offer, countering, negotiating extra time to stay in the house after the close, resolving an outstanding unapproved building permit (unbeknown to me) by calling the Orange County Building Permit Division to determine how a homeowner can resolve it when there is an issue with contractor?s license, as well as a quick and efficient close with an outstanding title company. Too good to believe, select him to list your house! Experience the results yourself! Hmc0213
    Joe was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He went above and beyond to get my family into the perfect home. He took his time to understand what we were looking for and got us the best deal. I highly recommend him and his team. Keyla Cintron
    We are a military family and have moved several times and experienced many realtors. Joe is by far the best realtor we have worked with. We were faced with a tight timeline to move a family of six from Michigan to Florida. What made the experience so great was his responsiveness to messages and flexibility to show homes. We did the tours all virtually and Joe was there every step of the way asking the right questions, negotiated a great deal, and advised us on things to look for as well. Joe is one of kind and I highly recommend his services! John
    I saved for 10 years for the down payment to buy a home in Florida. When I was ready I asked a family friend and realtor, a very experienced person himself, if he could help us find someone. He did some digging through his network and then interviewed Joe and put us in touch with each other. I knew from the start that Joe had the knowledge and experience to get us what we wanted, and that trust made all the difference because I was in Alaska teaching and my wife was in Utah working. He started showing us properties in October and we purchased in December and occupied it over Christmas and New Year's break. Over the course of the 2 months Joe acted on our behalf as though he were us, on everything, including inspections of property, finding professionals for various things, finding a Florida bank for the mortgage and all else. We really could not have done this from a far without him. And his assistant Rachael was extremely helpful as well. I'm so happy we found them. Gerard D
    My family was placed in the difficult position of having to sell our mother's home to help continue funding for her nursing home dementia care. Joe couldn't have been more compassionate, patient and caring. He was recommended by a good friend, and we never looked back.

He was patient with our emotions and tears, and he even came to the house one day to help us clear out what remained in the house for donation. Who does that anymore! The sale was clean, there were no bumps. Joe is now considered a family friend, and he will be our go-to if we are ever in the need for real estate expertise in the future. I've since recommended him to neighbors who are now being taken care of by him for the sale of their home after the wife recently passed away unexpectedly. Kkhartman56
    Our experience with Joe dates back to early in his career. In 1996, we listed our home with Joe. Joe's skill in working with buyers and financial institutions kept that transaction on track to successful completion. Joe then helped us locate and negotiate the purchase of our new home. Twenty years? later we contacted Joe to sell that home. The house was sold in two weeks at the asking price! Joe possess current knowledge of local markets and financing options. He is clever, straight talking, ethical, honest and sincere. He is a "people person" who listens carefully to your needs. He keeps his appointments promptly. He always returns calls and keeps you informed. He is focused on personal service. As a seller, I was pleased that Joe brought qualified buyers into my home. Joe also carefully screened homes for us to see. By listening carefully Joe saved us time and spared us frustration. Zuser20161103092752910
    Joe represented us for the sale of our house, as we live in the UK , we needed a reliable, trustworthy person to act on our behalf. Joe is the man for the job Could not rate high enough, nothing was too much trouble. This is not the first time we have used Joe, and his service and attention to detail is outstanding Stephen1788
    Joe did a great job for us in the process of helping us shop for, buy and close on a new home. We had a great experience with him and we would definitely use him again. He's knowledgeable, he listened to us and helped us find what we wanted, and he was very easy to work with. Newkitch
    We feel that we were very fortunate to be able to work with Joe and his team member, Rachael. I was impressed with Joe?s knowledge of the market and his patience. We delayed for sometime before deciding to put our home on the market. By the time we did so, it was a difficult time of the year to? market homes and a more difficult time in the market generally. We were selling an older home with some things that would be of a concern to a buyer. Joe gave us a realistic view of the market and his recommended price range was right on target. He marked the home aggressively, and as a result we had numerous walk-throughs with interest from several prospective buyers. Joe get did a good job of predicting what buyers would do and how they would respond to certain things, so we were in a good position to negotiate our best deal. Joe helped us sort through the offers, and with his advice, we selected one and proceeded smoothly to closing. I can?t say how happy we were with Joe and the way he handled our home listing and sale. I?ve recommended him to several other people, and would work with him again in the future. Jdecker2011
    You won't find another realtor with the experience, kindness, and patience that Joe has. He takes a true interest in his client's needs and goes out of his way to ensure you have a first-class buying/selling experience. Highly recommended if you want someone with the experience and market? strategies to get you results. Pwong7144
    My husband and I recently moved from the UK so were new to the house buying process here in Florida, it?s safe to say we were apprehensive about the whole process as we had heard many worrying stories of all the potential pitfalls. Joseph and Rachael talked us through the house buying process and? gave us sound advice and a clear overview of what was involved and how to go about it. Their availability, knowledge and skills were faultless throughout the whole experience. They dealt with a sometimes difficult seller and us with kindness, patience and respect. Thank you Rachael and Joe for making the whole process clear, straight forward. It was a pleasure dealing with you both and would not hesitate in using your services again or recommending you to others. Sandra Hargrave
    I purchased a property in the Orlando area with Joe's help, and I did it from out of state. Joe went above & beyond to make the transaction a smooth one. He & Rachel walked us through every step of the way. Also Joe's experience was an invaluable asset. I would absolutely use him again, and? recommend him to anyone who needs help with real estate in Florida! Ron rankine1
    Joseph Doher took a personal interest in assisting us in finding our forever retirement home. He queried us on exactly what we were looking for in a home, both mandatory, and "would be nice to have" features. He only showed us homes that met our criteria, and the more he got to know us, the? narrower the focus as he had a sense on exactly what we were looking for. We highly recommend Joseph and his team in dealing with any real estate business that you may have. User2164042
    Joe and Rachael are completely amazing. They take your complete needs into consideration on helping you find your next home. They are very knowledgeable about the areas and markets and know most of the local realtors. When it comes to negotiation they have there game faces ready and work for you! User073743
    I have had Joe's help in buying 2 houses & selling 1. Quite frankly, he is the consummate agent, in that he helps you from start to finish through the process. His professionalism is the key to his success. He will never give you anything but an honest unbiased opinion. Additionally, his support? staff is second to none in they're handling of all the detail work. Do yourself a favor, talk with this guy before you choose an agent. Edmikulski1
    Joe worked on our behalf to get us the beat deal on our Winter Park Fl condo. Joes knowledge of the area and relationships with lenders afforded us a smooth simple closure. We would highly recommend Joe. User5564233
    My experience working with Joe was extremely good. The sale of my Dad?s home was not an easy task for me, Joe was immersed in the process with me, guiding, encouraging, and very patient and understanding. He engaged the assistance of professionals to work with him and together, they made the sale? of Dad?s home painless and quick for me. The communication he and his team practiced went above and beyond any expectations I had. A very professional person who does not miss a beat in the real estate process. You want him on your side in a very complicated process. Ruth Battle
    I was highly impressed with Joe's overall expertise and knowledge regarding the market and other variables related to pricing and inventory. Joe was very responsive and was able to negotiate an even better deal than anticipated. I will absolutely work with Joe again on future deals and would? refer him to others. Educationleader1971
    Joe was extremely accommodating and very knowledgeable. He was always able to make the time to view homes in my short trips to Orlando. His expertise in knowing what areas to focus on and what we should be looking for made the selection process easy. He also has an awesome staff person! Thanks Rachel Luthy1
    Joe is a complete professional. He knows the real estate business, and he knows this market area. He pays attention to every detail, and takes his clients best interests to heart. A true pro. Jim Good
    First time working with Joe - Corporate relocation from Ormond Beach to Deland. Joe is very patient and places the customer first, above all else. Communication was excellent as was his follow-through. We never felt we were on our own during the buying process. We ended up contracting on a builder's spec home that was pre-slab, so we were able to put our own personal touches thru options. Just closed today and couldn't be happier with Joe and his fine Team. Have a beautiful home at a great price and all needed to actually live in the home (appliances, ceiling fans, window treatments, washer/dryer) were included in the price. HIGHLY recommend Joe! Bryan.kelley550969
    Joe is an outstanding and conscientious realtor as well as a kind human being. He helped my husband and myself find a home. Because we were transferred from an affluent area in Michigan, we were quite concerned where we would live and had very little time........... I would recommend Joseph to anyone. If I were to move again he would be the realtor I would use above all others. Leigh Vecchio
    I have worked with Joe a few times and he has always been excellent. He was very thorough during our home purchase process and gave us plenty of different options in the area and price range we were looking for. His only goal was to get us in to a house that was the best fit and he did not push us? in to making a quick decision. The process worked out and once we found the right house Joe moved fast and contract with seller was signed the very next day with closing a few weeks later. Anderssonfred
