Honestly can’t say enough great things about Joe. Was very flexible with my work schedule and availability to show me the houses. His knowledge of the current market is unparalleled. The whole process start to finish Joe referred me to people he has dealt with for 25 years and let me tell you, it makes it simple. Don’t waste time looking for anyone else. Joe is the guy you need to buy or sell your home!

Joe was very thorough, as a first time home buyer he really made the process go as pleasant as possible. Especially with the many questions I had... Very upfront, and informative. He was also flexible with my tough work schedule. Honestly couldn’t of asked for a better realtor. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell their home.

Joe was amazing every step of the way. As soon as I reached out to him, he set up a mls page for me. And within two days, we were viewing houses. He helped us through each step of the process and was even there for support during close. It was such a good experience and I highly recommend him to anyone.

I interviewed 5 Realtors to represent me in selling our home. Joe was the most thorough. I think that comes with 30 years of experience. He listed and sold our home. I have concluded he was very fair to both the buyer and seller. I don't think that is the easiest task. Very satisfied with Joe. Just remember he is no ordinary Joe.

Joe Risteca is the consummate professional in the real estate business. From an immediate response to my initial contact to actually attending my closing, Joe was there every step of the way. It was an arduous process with myself and my wife due to bizarre circumstances that had us putting offers on 3 separate properties in the span of 2 months, but throughout the entire process Joe remained positive, professional and supportive to 2 first time buyers. I would recommend Joe to anyone looking to purchase or rent or sell any property. HE MAKES IT EASY!!!

    What to say.!! He is the best agent ever . Thanks joe again . You have my recommendation +AAA Jerry Konieczny
    When I first met Joe Risteca, he explained that his job is more service than sales. He proved that time and again with his thorough knowledge of the local housing market. Every time I viewed a new property Joe would point out the features of the home that were important to me and always tried to answer my questions to the best of his ability. When he did not know the answer, he did not try to make something up but rather said he would find out and get back to me.. Joe also led me through the negotiation process to get to a price I was comfortable with. He provided me with recent sales of similar homes in the area so I was able to make a comfortable and realistic decision regarding my offer. In the end I found the property that was perfect for me. My favorite thing about Joe is that he is always thinking about his clients first. Frank Sanframonti
    Joe did a wonderful job of helping us purchase a home. He was always communicating updates with us and had the best interest of us in mind through the entire process. We cannot thank him enough for teaching us and guiding us through a home buying journey. I am happy to say that Joe was an excellent guy to work with and is transparent the whole time. Brian O'Malley
    We would highly recommend Joe Risteca for anyone’s Realtor. We were very satisfied with the advice he gave us for selling our rental home in Bartlett, Illinois. Our home was on the market with Joe from February 2018 to May 2018. Joe always answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Joe also worked with our attorney to get our closing done as smoothly & quickly as possible. Again, Joe handled the sale & closing of our house very professionally. We recommend him without any hesitation. Karen & Glenn Braziunas Karen Braziunas

    As a local attorney, I've worked with Joe for over 20 years! He is conscientious and diligent. He is well aware of the local market and is therefore able to give his clients the best advice and counsel when making what is considered one of the most important investment decisions of their life.

    Joe is amazing and wonderful! He helped a young, newlywed couple find our first real home. We'll be forever thankful for the memories we made. Trust Joe to make your dreams come true! Linda Cascio
    Joe Risteca has been my Realtor since 2001. He is a consummate professional. He is very knowledgeable about the Real Estate Market in the Chicagoland area. He has sold me a home, and found me great tenants for my investment property. He is very thorough, and he sets realistic expectations. He does the research for you, and makes the entire process go smoothly. He promptly responds to all of my requests. I would recommend Joe to anyone needing help with their Real Estate. Margot Bradley
    Joe helped me narrow down on couple places last year. He went above and beyond in helping me negotiate and bringing the price down to fair market value. I would definitely recommend and work with Joe if your looking to sell or buy any real estate. Harish Dani
    Joe, You could not have been more knowledgeable about fulfilling my housing needs and more accommodating at helping me get into the perfect home. It was a real pleasure to work with someone whose primary interest was to find me what I wanted, rather than trying to get me into something that was easy for you. I appreciated your help in navigating the myriad of paperwork needed to close the deal within my short time frame. Thank you for being the consummate professional Frank Sanframanti
    We worked with Joe in 2015 to purchase our first home. Joe was awesome, and really worked with us throughout the whole process in finding what we needed in our budget. Joe even helped us throughout the loan process, and guided my wife and me whenever we had questions. Joe's daily search update were refined, and focused to what we were looking for, and whenever we wanted to see a property Joe was ready to go. I would highly recommend Joe, and in the future when we start the process again we will definitely be working with Joe to find our new home. Shahbaz Hasmi
    Joe was absolutely great to work with! I really appreciated his style when he helped my husband and I find our home. He truly listened to what we were looking for, narrowed down the options for us on his own time and didn’t waste ours. I loved that he let us walk through houses at our own pace without being pushy or salesy. He also recommended a fantastic mortgage broker and closing agent, making the entire process hassle free and painless. I would absolutely recommend Joe; give him a call today! Tammy Lonsberry
