“Joe helped us purchase our first home! He is very knowledgeable, patient and responsive. No matter the time or day he would respond via text, email, or phone. He has great experience and knows what to do to get you your dream home. He was with us every step of the way and is very sincere and sweet. We really enjoyed working with Joe and highly recommend using him to help you buy or sell your home.”
Buyers – Ryan & Gina | Walnut Creek
“Joe sold our home in 14 days in a slower Summer market. He put his years of excellent sales skills to work and negotiated a very good price for our home. He received many compliments from the Realtors in which he had contact with. They said "very easy and a pleasure to work with". I have to totally agree. To do well in the real estate business a person must have the necessary skills that Joe possesses.”
Sellers - Bill & Marion | Campbell
“We couldn't recommend Joe enough. He's knowledgeable, honest, a savvy negotiator, and well connected. Joe brought in a lot of foot traffic during our open house and as a result our condo sold within 4 days upon listing. We're beyond satisfied with what he was able to bring to the table and look forward to working with Joe in the future. If you're looking for a realtor that goes the extra mile, responsive, patient and diligent, Joe's definitely your guy!”
Sellers - Mike & Maria | San Jose (Downtown San Jose)
“Joe Ventura made all our dreams come true in our very First Home! We knew we faced many challenges as first time buyers, with a limited budget, and the Bay Area being a competitive market. As first time buyers we wanted a home that would allow us to grow our young family, with a backyard, and was located in a family oriented neighborhood. With Joe’s expertise of the Bay Area, he encouraged us to look at homes outside of our comfort zone to illustrate what we could afford in various neighborhoods. We knew we would have to make compromises with our limited budget and our mindset being that of our first house would be used as a steppingstone for our future forever home. Joe showed us a home the first day it was placed on the market; my husband and I immediately fell in love with it. It had everything we desired and more! We were in escrow within 3 days. Joe worked meticulously with the buyer’s agent and our lender making the whole buying process smooth and enjoyable. We have now lived in our home for 3 months and we are so thankful every day that Joe found this gem in a neighborhood we never knew existed. If you want an agent who is meticulous and detailed oriented with a board expertise of the Bay Area, Joe Ventura is an excellent choice! We will recommend him to all our friends and family!”
Buyers - Scott & Allyson | San Jose (Blossom Valley)
“If you are looking for a diligent, detail-orientated, and most of all, honest real estate agent, I highly recommend Joe Ventura. His daily efforts in providing the highest caliber service were nothing less than perfect. When my wife and I were looking for a real estate agent, we wanted someone who had deep connections in the Bay Area. Joe was able to find us a home in Los Gatos, CA that was a pocket listing via one of his connections. Even after closing escrow, Joe continually checked in on us to make sure everything was going smoothly and was up to our standards.”
Buyers - John and Zena | Los Gatos
“We first met with Joe when my husband and I were considering a move to Lake Tahoe. We met for coffee and Joe took his time to patiently explain the process of buying a home and to answer all our questions. He came prepared with a folder full of potential listings tailored to our wish list that very day. Since my husband and I had a lot of area-specific questions, Joe was honest and suggested that we might be better served by an agent local to South Lake Tahoe. We ultimately agreed and despite knowing he was not going to make a sale with us, Joe went out of his way to research and contact several local Tahoe agents. It was such a relief that we weren't stuck blindly choosing an agent and hoping for the best! Joe set us up with a meeting in South Lake Tahoe the following weekend and we made an offer that Sunday! We would absolutely recommend Joe to anyone looking into purchasing real estate. He clearly goes above and beyond to make sure his clients get the personalized support that they need to find the perfect home, even at the risk of losing out on a sale.”
Buyers - Shane & Amy (referred to Lake Tahoe Agent)
“We were definitely NOT an easy couple to buy a house for. In addition to having a headache of an FHA loan, my husband had very strict parameters/criteria he wanted for our first home. Frank handled ALL of this with ease. He communicated with us almost daily & went WAY out of his way for us on many occasions. He made the process seamless and believe it or not, FUN. He was excited when we were excited and never failed to tell us "no" when our interests veered to houses that were out of our price range (even though our loan would have afforded it) because he wanted what was BEST for us.
Frank recently helped some friends of ours buy their first home & he is now helping my Mom buy a home! There is not one person I would trust more than Frank. His honesty, communication, and whole hearted interest in his job make him truly special among a sea of real estate agents.
If you want an agent that puts YOU first, will communicate with you daily, and will do whatever it takes to make sure the home buying process is as seamless as possible – Frank Ventura is the man!”
Buyers – Dirk & Kristin | San Jose (Santa Teresa)
“Selling and buying houses can be extremely hectic. Nicole did an excellent job at keeping us from getting too overwhelmed as we navigated through the experience of selling our last home and purchasing our new home.
We found Nicole to be very on top of things. She was very flexible in terms of meeting up with us, especially since we both work during the week days. She was knowledgeable about the many different neighborhoods and schools that we looked at. She also was very familiar and experienced with the various types of contracts and paperwork we dealt with, which made us feel comfortable since we knew very little about the real estate process. We also appreciated her quick responses any time we had questions or needed her to look in to things for us.
Nicole was referred to us by friends who had used her to also sell and buy their houses. Like our friends, we would like to sincerely refer her too!”
Buyers and Sellers - Mark & Katie | San Jose (Basking Ridge)
“We couldn't have been happier with our friend's recommendation to use Nicole Ventura as our realtor. She understood our needs and made us feel comfortable with every step in the buying and selling process. Nicole was flexible with our schedules by meeting with us to view properties and field phone calls beyond the hours of a typical work day. She is very knowledgeable about both sides of the buying and selling process. We turned to her for advice in many areas. From handyman repairs and staging our property, to setting a competitive sale price for the market and negotiating the best offer, Nicole gave advice that always served our best interest.
What impressed us most about Nicole was how she continued to work with us after our transaction closed. Soon after we moved into our house, we discovered some severe plumbing problems from the pre-sale repair work. Nicole was the first person we called and she handled the rest from there. She stepped in and worked with the selling party on our behalf until we were satisfied with the repairs. This was well above and beyond our expectations of a Realtor. We trust Nicole so much that we have recommended her to our friends to give them the same experience we had. We not only think of Nicole as our realtor, but a dear friend.”
Buyers and Sellers - Matt & Darci | San Jose (Cambrian to Willow Glen)
“We are fortunate to find Nicole Ventura as our realtor. We relocated to California a few years back from Dallas, TX where we own a single family house. It was fairly easy to buy house in Texas and thinking our past experience would be useful we decided to buy a house in the valley; but we were completely mistaken.
Nicole discussed with us the market conditions in California, the kind of house we were interested in, the kind of neighborhoods we would be most comfortable living. She knows this industry really well and her suggestions are backed by thorough research and experience.
She is extremely flexible and does not rush you in buying a house if you have the slightest doubt about the property. She does thorough research of the properties and discusses each one with her honest feedback. This is the best quality of hers which we highly depended on!! She always wants the best for her client; no compromises!! Thank You Nicole, we have been extremely lucky to find you; you made it possible to find our dream home in this extremely crazy bay area market!!! After we closed on the one we liked she went over and beyond to make sure things are working well for us and I am sure would she would help out in case we needed her advice. Again it's worth repeating she is a great advisor and realtor!!!”
Buyers - Sameer & Pradnya | San Jose (Evergreen)
“Tony and Nicole were very instrumental in helping us to purchase our first home. As first time home buyers my wife were very nervous, asked a lot of questions and were very particular in the type of house we wanted. Tony and Nicole were very patient with us and were always more than willing to answer our questions, provide us with listings of homes that met our criteria as well as taking us to several homes before we found just the right house. Through their dedication and hard work we found the perfect first home for our family. We were so impressed with the service we received from Tony and Nicole that we recently secured their services to help sell our house two years later where they were able to negotiate a final selling price well over our asking price! We highly recommend their services! Thanks again!”
Buyers - Chris & Wendy | San Jose (Willow Glen)
“I worked with Nicole to sell two of my properties. She was very professional and went the extra mile to make sure the selling process was as easy as possible. I would definitely hire her again to sell my next home or find me a new one.”
Seller - Don W. | San Jose (Cambrian and Campbell)
“There are many decision's to make and obstacles to navigate when selling a home. Nicole Ventura's commitment to her clients is what made my family feel we had a trusted advisor in our corner throughout the process. Nicole stayed in direct contact with us on a daily basis, and always returned our calls almost immediately. We ended up with multiple offers on our home, and Nicole did an excellent job negotiating the price and terms in the sale. No words could express our gratitude for and loyalty to Nicole. She truly will be our Realtor for life! Thank you again.”
Sellers - Dave & Natalie | Campbell
“It is our pleasure to recommend Nicole Ventura as a highly qualified real-estate agent. She and her firm Ventura Barnett, recently represented us as sellers of a property in San Jose that had been in our family for over 50 years. We found Nicole to be very knowledgeable of the local market place and proposed a realistic pricing and marketing plan for us. Through very delicate negotiations and careful handling, Nicole was able to secure a significantly higher price than had been projected. She did an excellent job of managing the details of the transaction through to closing, never once leaving us wondering, questioning, or even a phone call unanswered. Nicole Ventura and her agency were recommended to us by neighborhood friends and we could not have been happier with her performance. We would not hesitate to work with Nicole again, indeed, we would look forward to it!”
Sellers - Davis & Christine | Campbell
"Nicole impressed us with her negotiation and marketing skills, and their knowledge of the market. Nicole kept in constant contact with us throughout the entire process in the sale of our home, and her commitment to serving only our best interests, was very comforting. Nicole’s network of professional contractors and other vendors was crucial when it came time to the necessary repairs to our home. Nicole genuinely cared about us and our well-being, and we recommend her with the highest confidence to anyone considering buying or selling a property."
Sellers - Rich & Janet | San Jose (Willow Glen)
“Nicole Ventura was instrumental in the search for our dream home. She was patient when we were indecisive and encouraging when we were discouraged. She was always available to address our questions and concerns. She lead us through the sale of our previous home and the purchase of our present home with confidence and integrity. Nicole is a true professional and we highly recommend her to anyone!”
Buyers and Sellers - Mike & Lianne | (San Jose to San Martin)
“My husband and I worked with Nicole when purchasing our first home in 2011. She was very patient and diligent with us as we searched for our dream home. When we had our sights set on the perfect place she worked quickly to lock it in for us. She was very thorough and made our first home buying experience virtually painless. A few months ago, for unexpected reasons, we had to sell our first home. Naturally with how wonderful our first experience was, we called upon Nocole to help. She was clearly an expert with the ways of the market and used great strategy to get us more for our home than we thought possible, in less than a week of being on the market. We highly recommend Nicole Ventura Wallace, she is fantastic to work with.”
Buyers and Sellers - Kris & Sara | San Jose (Willow Glen)
“Nicole, is hands down, the best real estate agent we have ever worked with. Her communication skills, research, negotiation skills are top notch.
She sold our house at the price range we listed it for faster than we expected and helped us buy our new home at a great deal. She took care of a lot of small details that we did not think of. In fact, on the items that we decided to not follow her recommendations, we regretted it (eg. choosing the right inspector ). She has kept in contact with us months after both deals have closed.
I highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying/selling their property.”
Buyers and Sellers - Ross & Sue | San Jose (Blossom Valley)
“Tony and Nicole, we can't thank you enough for all of your help and advice in selling our home. With retirement, buying a home in a different city and selling in a slower market here in San Jose, it is an emotional time and we are so grateful for your straight forward advice. We couldn't have asked for a better price or a more smooth transaction! Thank you again!”
