When my husband and I started to think seriously about buying our first home, like so many first time homebuyers, we were a bit skeptical of the whole realtor agent idea. We wondered, would we find an honest, knowledgable, sincere realtor who would always have our best interest, rather than their own agenda? Buying a home is probably the biggest investment many of us will ever make and excellent professional guidance is essential to making the purchase of a home as smooth a process as possible. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate agent than Joe Mercurio. He has enormous knowledge of the industry, was always available when we wanted to view a house, always got back to us promptly whenever we called, prepared us by making sure we had all our ducks in a row- as to minimized any potential issues once we did get an offer accepted. Our house hunting experience was a long search, because it was right when interest rates were at their lowest, and right before prices started to rise, hence creating high competition of several offers for one house. Although there were times that had us wondering if we would ever get a place- we finally did. Joe put forward a lot of effort in getting us into our awesome home. He reached out several times to the seller, built a rapport with him, suggested my husband and I write a letter to the seller about what it would mean for us to get the home. In the end, although higher offers were made, we ended up getting the house of our dreams! Joe is a great realtor because he is realistic, ethical, knows his stuff, is motivated about getting you into the home you want, and overall a genuine person. He enjoys being a realtor and it reflects positively in his work. To future home buyers, hope this helps. 🙂 -slb johnson
Joe was pivotal in assisting my brother and I navigate the confusing and stressful short sale process. His robust knowledge of the market and effective communication with multiple lenders made the process seamless for us. Once a real offer was received on the property Joe was actively engaged in the negotiation process to ensure I did not incur any out of pocket expenses. I always felt up to date on the status of our transaction even though I was 2,000 miles away at the time of sale.
I highly recommend Joe for all your real estate needs. He has a sincere approach and goes the ‘extra mile’ to make certain you have an optimal experience in purchasing/selling a home.-christopher lpz1
I worked with Joe to purchase my 1st home and he made the process so easy from start to finish. He even secured my loan!!! Very professional and kept everything on schedule so I closed in 30-days. He has kept in contact with me over the years which I always thought was so nice. As our family grows, my husband and I will certainly work with Joe again for the purchase of our next home!! -laura e alvarez25

In 2011, Joe helped my brother and I secure a short sale on our home in Irvine. We had two different lenders we had to deal with. My brother was out of state, having relocated for work, and we had lost a huge amount of equaity in our residence when the market crashed. Joe listed our property and negotiated the terms of the sale with both lenders. The short sale was handled professionally in a timely manner, the lenders accepted the terms (as well as forgiving the outstanding balances), and we even received money from the lenders to help with our move. He made a difficult situation workout in our best interest and difficult process understandable. I would recommend his services to anyone. -ralopez26k4
