We found Joan to be incredibly patient, guiding and navigating us through the NY real estate process. She was a tremendous source of local knowledge and contacts. We found Joan to be always positive and helpful, providing us with ideas and options, without being pushy and without making the process intimidating. She quickly gained insight to our preferred style and what we were ultimately looking for. We really enjoyed working with her; her support was invaluable, we respect her opinion and she definitely made the whole process as enjoyable as it it could be! We have come across many agents since moving to the US at the beginning of the year and Joan is the only person (out of the 30 or so we’ve met at viewings!) who we both felt we could really trust.
My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Cate Jarrett & Joan Capaldi this year during the emotionally challenging process of selling our beloved home as well as purchasing our soon to be new home.
They were extremely professional, thoughtful and caring throughout the entire nine month process and had to go above-and-beyond to satisfy our goal of finding the right new home for our family, which included priorities which changed over time.
Cate and Joan were always extremely responsive to our needs, requests and issues, thus resulting in our desire to express our appreciation for their hard work
I want to thank Joan for being fabulous. I honestly can't imagine doing this with anyone else..she is just such an understanding and warm person, not to mention professional. Joan is very reliable and responsive; anything I asked of her, I received quickly and completely. She also is proactive, both in sending me information and in providing critical information like timelines and closing costs. I strongly recommend using her.
Joan's expertise and knowledge of the real estate market and local area are top notch. We relied heavily on her advice and experience during our search process and she delivered. Joan’s guidance, support, patience, and negotiation skills helped land us our dream home and for that, we are forever grateful. Joan is professional, reliable, fun to spend time with and incredibly accommodating. She always responded promptly to our questions, texts and phone calls and made herself available at times that worked best for our busy schedules. She stood by us during every step of the process, from viewing numerous listings over the course of many, many months, to contract negotiations, inspection, financing, and closing. She is an amazing source of information and we will still chat regularly. Working with Joan was truly a pleasure and we highly recommend her services.
Whenever we started thinking about a house search it was overwhelming. We have several friends in town who are brokers and we weren't sure how we would choose. Then Joan's card arrived with a house that looked interesting and the rest just fell into place. Joan is the perfect broker. She's diligent, organized, patient, never pushy and gets things accomplished so quickly and thoroughly. She's always a step ahead of us - sometimes we think she's reading our minds. She's the quintessential multi-tasker and helped us juggle both the purchase of our new house and sale of our current house without feeling too overwhelmed and out of control. She kept us calm through staging and the open house and was always reassuring and supportive. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a broker. She's that and so much more.
Joan has walked us through two rentals and a home purchase. She always had our best interest at heart & even suggested that we lower our house bid (what agent does that?!) She was right & we got the house! She tirelessly made sure that we were 100% with our decisions and continues to follow up & check-in. She is a good person which is hard to find these days let alone in real estate!
Joan helped my husband and me buy our home in Larchmont during the spring/summer of 2017. Working with Joan was a true pleasure. We were in a time crunch (living in NYC with two kids in a two bedroom apartment and a baby on the way), and Joan made sure we saw as many options as possible and did not rush into any decisions. She was very patient with us, thoughtful with respect to our family's needs and skilled in helping us negotiate with the sellers. She is extremely knowledgeable about Larchmont and the surrounding areas and truly always had our best interest at heart. She previewed homes for us and accommodated our crazy schedule. Joan was also very responsive - responding to e-mail, phone or text within minutes. Overall, Joan was excellent to work with.
Joan is by far one of THE BEST people I know. She is an expert when it comes to finding your dream home. You can call her ANYTIME and she is available to assist with the most monumental questions as well as the simple ones. Joan is honest and caring and makes you feel like family from your first meeting with her. She asks what you are looking for and will take you to look at just that! Joan is selling you a HOME, not just a HOUSE. She truly cares about her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We recently had the pleasure to work with Joan Capaldi and Cate Jarrett on the sale
of our home as well as the search for our new home. Joan and Cate were superb!
They are a team that always puts their client’s needs first and are incredibly
understanding and accommodating. Their depth of market knowledge and their
real estate acumen made it an effective and successful outcome for us. They were
patient throughout, highly professional and simplified a process that is normally
complex and stressful. We definitely chose a winning team!!
Joan is absolutely the person you want by your side whether you are buying, selling or renting. She is patient, responsible, good-humored, and extraordinarily knowledgeable about the communities she works in. She was responsive to all of my questions and concerns and reduced my anxiety completely.
