About Me About Me

Joseph Briggs specializes in selling Hudson Valley country homes and weekend properties: waterfront homes, mountaintop homes, equestrian properties, farms and agricultural land, as well as commercial, mixed-use and multi-family homes. As a member of 5+ multiple listing services, he covers a wide geographic area in the Hudson Valley, including Dutchess and Columbia Counties, Ulster and Greene Counties, as well as the Albany/Capital Region and Berkshire foothills. Representing sellers and buyers, Joseph has closed on over $35M in Hudson Valley country home sales in the last two years. His clients consistently describe him as extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, honest, kind, hardworking, and the best!

With 16+ years as a top-selling Realtor of Hudson Valley country homes, Joseph provides top-quality customer service for each of his clients. As he understands real estate is a substantial investment, he works hard to ensure his clients are protected through the process of purchasing and selling, negotiations and inspections, ensuring his client's interests are vigilantly represented. On the listing side, Joseph brings in all the best stylists, staging professionals, photographers and video producers to most effectively showcase the beauty and appeal of each home he represents. His relationships with the best local professionals - including attorneys, builders, land surveyors, contractors, STR managers, etc. make the home buying and selling processes so much easier for his clients.   

Joseph’s background includes a diverse career of multi-genre music performance and production in Manhattan, Boston, London and LA, as well as a love of organic and biodynamic gardening, sustainable ethical food production, sales and marketing in the organic food business, a current passion for playing tennis, and regular travel to Europe and Central America.

On a dead-end road in lovely Chatham, NY, Joseph and his wife have cultivated a 5-acre homestead, surrounded by diverse organic, biodynamic and edible forest gardens. His experience founding and running Archaea Organics (a local organic, fair trade food production company producing 20 USDA-certified organic products in a solar-powered facility), demonstrates his commitment to high-quality organic food and environmental sustainability. He and his wife are huge supporters of their local Food Co-op and local organic farmers in Chatham.

Joseph has an enormous passion for selling real estate in the Hudson Valley because he personally understands the migration from the hectic Manhattan working world to a more peaceful and inspiring life surrounded by natural beauty, as he now works from home in the Hudson Valley. This is own personal story - thereby making it easy for him to sell to NYC buyers looking for a change of lifestyle – whether for weekends, summers, ski season, or a permanent new relaxing reality north of the city. Enjoying the vibrant beauty, rich culture and endless variety of fabulous local restaurants, Joseph has found the perfect home and life in the Hudson Valley, and he’s happy to help sell this to his clients.

Testimonials (17)

Joe Briggs was absolutely exceptional in every way throughout our transaction. Not only was he so professional that it put our minds at ease and allowed us to focus on moving, but he was such a nice guy we became friends immediately. If you want a realtor that will be in contact regularly and pick up the phone every time you call, Joe is your man! He sold our house above asking price in eight days! Keith G. Gibson Nicole Gibson
Joseph Briggs provides strong market knowledge, great guidance and overall excellent service. He took extra steps to help secure a favorable outcome. Highly recommended. Palmer Smith

Joseph Briggs sold our home of over 10 years within weeks of listing and at a price exceeding our expectations, yet fair. His guidance on the pulse of the market in our area at an intimidating time in real estate made the process incredibly smooth and comfortable. We especially loved the attention to detail in staging and photography that highlighted everything we love about the home, and surely brought out the best buyers. We highly recommend listing with Joseph!

Mary O

We had the best experience working with Joseph! He's incredibly professional, organized and proactive, and such a pleasure to work with. From the moment we started, he guided us through every step of the process, making recommendations on how to prepare our house and property for sale and providing insight and data to help us land on a listing price. He brought on an incredible team to stage and photograph, and asked for our input on what we love about the property to include in the listing description. He expertly navigated the many potential pitfalls and guided us through the process with calmness and care. Within the first day of the listing going live we had multiple offers. We're working with him now on purchasing a new home, and couldn't be happier. We highly recommend working with Joseph, he's simply the best.

Jim C.

Joseph Briggs must surely be THE BEST realtor in the Hudson Valley. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and works very hard with home buyers to educate them on the market and every step of the buying process. No detail is spared with Joseph. He has quick answers and solutions to any questions or issues that may arise, and he made the experience as painless as possible. We loved working with him!

Eric Losh

Joseph helped us sell our beautiful 168-year-old brownstone in Historic Troy, NY. We decided to work with Joseph because of his successful track record and because he’s a genuinely kind person. Joseph found us wonderful buyers and helped us seal the deal so quickly! We were very happy with the price point and how he marketed our property. If you’re looking to buy your dream home or sell your current one, look no further because Joseph is the PERFECT realtor!


Joseph represented us on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. He was responsive, knowledgeable of the market, honest, and delivered great results for us. We will definitely work with him in the future!

Matthew Papas

Joe is the real deal. I highly recommend his services. Responds real quick. Checks up frequently, always offering his help in any way. Gave me great attorney”s numbers. Provided me with local insurance agents. I used both. He was a great help to a guy just trying to buy a building.

Kevin D.

Joseph did a great job guiding me through all the stages of selling my house, from getting the house ready to sell all the way through closing. He is very knowledgeable of the process and a pleasure to work with.


Joseph has been my realtor as I buy my first home. He has been incredibly helpful, responsive, and friendly. He's explained things to me every step of the way. Whenever I've felt overwhelmed he's been quick to hop in and assist. You can tell he's been doing this for a while -- he seems to know everybody and is a great resource. It's clear that he has his clients' best interest in mind rather than just trying to close a deal. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their realtor! I have 0 complaints -- highly recommend!


I feel very fortunate to have meet Joseph and selected him and his team to sell my property. I appreciate his attention to detail and his expertise on getting my home ready for the photographs and sale. Joseph is excellent as a real estate professional. He has the ability to take time to understand what my needs were and direct me in the right direction. Kudos to Joseph!

Joseph Briggs is your quintessential real estate professional. You will be hard pressed to find a more trusting and hardworking real estate agent in the Hudson Valley. Joseph worked relentlessly on our behalf until we found the home we were looking for. Joseph consistently went above and beyond our expectations during the entire process of buying our home in Stephentown, NY. We were blown away by his dynamic attitude and well-rounded skill set. Joseph is very knowledgeable in all areas of the process of buying a home. He was completely supportive during our search. He arranged timelines, created lists of homes in order to see, kept communication lines open at all times by emailing, texting, or calling us ensuring that all of our needs were met in a timely manner. He was also extremely flexible and generous. Joseph knew what questions to ask, what suggestions to make, and gave us great advice when we needed it most. Best of all, Joseph's patience, kindness, humor, and great attitude provided much needed support during our home searching trips while travelling from PA to NY. We are super happy to have worked with such great person.

Jeremy M.

Joseph was absolutely the captain of my home-buying dream team. He was my mentor and advocate from the very beginning — even before I was ready to start looking at homes, providing information and resources, answering questions — and above and beyond, advocating for me after my closing. His presence at exactly the right moments, his guidance, and his expertise were invaluable to me through what could easily have been an overwhelming process. I trusted his counsel, and frequently looked to him for advice in navigating the negotiation, inspection, concession and validation phases. I was glad to have him by my side at the closing table. Bonus: His comedic timing is impeccable.

Teal Hutton

Joesph was extremely helpful and dedicated to helping us find the home to meet our specific needs. His honesty and relaxed attitude has made the home buying process a breeze. He is an absolute pleasure to work with.

Rachel Haley

Joseph worked tirelessly on our behalf to help us find our new home, shepherding us through the process from the first visits all the way through closing, making every potentially frustrating or difficult step a breeze. We can't count all the occasions on which he went above and beyond the role of realtor, acting as an advocate, a sounding board, and a friend. He's the best!

James Askin

We thoroughly enjoyed the shopping process with Joseph. My wife, Helen, and I had previously owned a country house and had a firm idea of what we were looking for. Unfortunately what we wanted was hard to find. Our desire was to have an historic house not close to the road. Joseph's patience allowed us to find the house that we love. We without reservation recommend Joseph!

Paul & Helen

Joe is a true real estate professional. He has excellent knowledge of the markets he is involved in. Great insight into a homes potential and true value. My dealings with him have been a great experience, not pushy and always making sure the client gets what they want and need.
