Helped me buy home

Joe was the perfect mix of honesty, knowledgeable, and compassionate. Exactly what I needed for my first home!! I really needed to have a “father figure” and he was just that. He also took all my calls and messages, even tho I’m sure it was as annoying at times.

We feel we picked the best realtor to sell our house. We actually enjoyed working with Joe. We trusted him and he made the process easy. He felt like part of our family. Joe was most knowledgeable about all selling and staging aspects. Joe helped us achieve a great profit from the sale of our house.

Joe Rutkowski is a true real estate professional. I worked with Joe to purchase my first investment property. I was most impressed with his knowledge of the local area and his responsiveness. If you contact Joe he will get back to you right away, which is very important in the current real estate market. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and helped prevent me from making common mistakes that first time investors make. I highly recommend working with Joe Rutkowski and will look forward to working with him again on my next purchase.

If you are buying or selling on Cleveland’s West side, call Joe! He knows the area, is a great communicator and knows the business inside and out. Joe was a pleasure to work with, and if my girlfriend kicks me out of her house, my first call will be to Joe to find me a new one…(house, not girlfriend)!
