I met Joe several years ago when I was looking to invest in a multiple units property that he owned. Upon meeting him, a Pastor friend of mine spoke to him and he allowed us to feet and minister to the his residence. It was a blessing for them and for us. He then became my "Personal Realtor" His compasion for human beings is his heart. Joe and his team have listed 3 properties for me. 1 I took off the market because the one I was living in was sold and had to move into that property that I took off the market. The 2nd one was a real challenge. I had owner financed the home and sold a note to an investor in San Diego. When the note became due the buyers decided they would not refinance because it had some foundation issues. The investor asked me if I knew a Realtor and of course I recommnded Joe. Joe was contacted by this person which won his trust. Joe worked with contrators to fix the problems in that home in order to be in conditions to sell. The foundation was damaged because of a water leak that had been there for many years before I even purchased the home. It took several months for the work to be done and Joe was the contact person. He and the investor made the arrangements which means I was not burdened by the many details. The home was sold and escrow closed this past Monday. I truly respect and admire Joe's integrity and his experience not only in sales but in making sure that his clients are taken care of. Less ... More

Joe was extremely helpful with finding and eventually buying my first home. He was very quick to respond to my messages and always kept in touch. The house I eventually bought was on the market for just one day before we saw it and made an offer to get it under contract. If you're looking for a home in San Antonio definitely give Joe a call.

We really enjoyed working with Joe. He was very responsive and available pretty much 24/7. Always answered our calls or emails very promptly. He was able to arrange viewings of homes right away when we asked, efficiently processed paperwork when we wanted to make an offer, and just managed every aspect of the home buying process very effectively. We would definitely work with him again!

Joe did an amazing job for us! He was willing and able to help us work though a tough sales situation! He helped us meet our goal to break even as well, at a time where the market was tough to sell in:) In addition he knew the area, the loan options well, and he was honest! If he doesn't know something he directs you to the right place! He also responds quickly when called and if he can't call you he has his office staff call....you are never left hanging! He also stays on top of his clients to keep the process moving and to help the close happen sooner rather then later! I would recommend him for sure without any reservations and I would use him again in a heart beat! Thank you Joe! You are awesome! Less ... More

Hello, my name is Gerard Tetreault originally from Los Angeles, I just recently purchased a home through Joe Corwin and moved less then a month ago to San Antonio. Today was the first time I ever saw Zillow and was so surprised to read some of the negative reviews I just had to add my two cents. After several negative experiences with other realtors in the San Antonio area my wife and I one morning walked into Joe Corwin's office completely unannounced without an appointment dressed as if we couldn't rub two nickels together and in some ways I expecting to be asked to leave. On the contray after being summond Joe came out to greet us with a big smile and friendly hand shake and welcomed us into a back office. He took the time to find out who we were, what our hopes and expectations were, what type of home were we looking for and what our budget was. And trust me he knew we weren't going to make him millions. Despite that he spent over an hour with us while offering us food and drink. He then had my wife go with another person into another office to look at property listings while he brought in another gentleman to speak to me about finances. Before we left his office that day, some almost 3 hours later we had a realtor lined up to take us to visit 11 properties the next day. After the second day of visiting properties with our realtor we returned to Joe's office where Joe took time out of his valuable schedule to make small talk with us. We literally spent until almost 9 pm in the evening sharing life experiences with this man, telling stories back and forth as if we had been life long friends. He is an amazing friendly and caring human being. And now that I've gotten to know him a bit more I realize that that is how he treats everybody. He is warm and oblidging and helpful and goes out of his way to make you feel like part of his family and will do almost anything for you. As my wife says;"Joe has a clean heart." To make a long story short within a week we put an offer down on a beautiful house in the Windcrest area from Joe that we both absolutely love. I truly believe that one of the main reasons we got this house was because of Joe's advise on offering a bit more then the asking price because of the market which I did and of course my offer was accepted. It troubles me to read some of this negativety because I know Joe takes care of those who come to him. I would recommend Joe Corwin to everybody and anybody who is looking to either sell or purchase a home. Gerard Tetreault www.gmwebdesignz.com www.gmwebhostingz.com Less ... More

Joe Corwin was fantastic from the moment we first spoke to him on the phone.

Finally, his expert advice and assistance led us to purchase our dream home with many upgrades! We can counted on Joe for his knowledgeable, dedication, and attentive.

I was very impressed with Joe because he and his team were available seven days a week just as the advertisement claimed. Sometimes it's just not convenient to call during business hours because of a work situation and questions needed to be answered but there was always a return call. Of crucial importance for me in selling my house was Joe's negotiating advice during the offer/counter offer process. As a result, I got a price that exceeded my expectations and I received an offer the second day that it was on the market. I highly recommend Joe. Less ... More

Being a first time home owner, I was very nervous about the whole process. After contacting Joe Corwin and, especially, Alex Marti, I was immediately placed at ease with the professional, friendly and knowledge that they displayed. Alex Marti was very helpful and was very patient with us. I would very highly recommend these professionals to every first time buyer and property owners looking for a property manager.

Long-term management of a property
I would never recomend using sellsmart to manage your property. I have had to call Joe Corwin several times because his property managers don't return their calls. He has never resolved any of the issues that we had with his employees, to include returning calls, sending statements of payment to us each month, sending our tax info, and ensuring our tennants were getting repairs done when needed. The airconditioner went out and we were not notified, we only saw a $700 loss on our rent check. His company has a high turnover rate of their employees, so you never know who you are supposed to contact when you need help. We don't even have a set of keys to our home because Joe Corwin has not sent them back to us after we left their property management. With all these issues happening they felt they could keep taking our money for their services when their side of the contract was not being upheld. Stay away from them. Less ... More

After struggling to sell my house with other big name real estate agents for over a year, I met with Joe and gave him the house to sell. Joe straight away sat down with me and gave me idea's on what was lacking. He was very upfront and honest. Further more he sent his assistant who stages houses at no extra charge. They came in and staged the house with beautiful artwork and furniture. He did multiple open houses sometimes even 2 or 3 in a week. Within one month he was able to sell my house. Joe was very patient during the whole process and provided every detail about the process. Also I was able to save big with Joe's sell smart program. I see no reason why anyone would go with other big name companies when Joe does the same job better, faster and saves the client money. Joe is truly AWESOME. A++++ Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Seller's beware. I obtained Joe Corwin to sell my home and was promised professional staging and photography. In the end I was to pay for the staging...finally we renegotiated and the staging was on Joe. Then I found out the staging was to be minimal. I have a beautiful home in the $350K range and I was not happy to get MINIMAL staging (LR, Kitchen & Master). Be cautious and get your deal in writing and be specific!
Response fromJoe Corwin
Dear Sir, We never placed your home on the market. I am sorry there was a misunderstanding on the staging assistance I was providing. Kathleen an accredited home stager was there to provide guidance to you and bring a few things to help with the staging, but not to stage your entire home with staging material. The professional photographer was scheduled to arrive the following day. After this misunderstanding on the staging, etc., I informed you that I thought it was best you had another realtor represent you in the sale of your home. I wish you the very best and sorry things did not work out. Less ... More

At first trying to sell my home for a year, I was pretty pessimistic on the home selling process because I felt my home was not a high enough priority for my realtor to earn commission, since my home was moderately priced. So, I decided to change realtors on the recommendation from my neighbors who successfully used Joe Corwin at SellSmart Real Estate, specifically agent Alex Marti. Their philosophy of having lower commissions made sense because they would have to work hard to sell my house as quantity of sales would be more important. Time was imperative in my case. To say the least, Alex delivered on high professionalism, perseverance, customer service, ingenuity, and loyalty that matched all my needs. I couldn't imagine going with another realtor and another selling philosophy. Alex left no stones unturned, and he sold my house in a tough market and a tough situation. If you need your house sold, talk to Alex!! Less ... More

There are no words to describe how satisfied I am to have worked with Alex Marti. My situation was a difficcult one, it was an experience that I don"t ever wish to happen to anyone. WIth that said, I must say Alex Marti played the most important role in closing my loan. His negotiation skills are extreme, he was brilliant when he sent the final email to the VP of the brokradge company before they turned around and said "We are closing this afternoon." He was BRILLIANT! Without his help I would not have closed and would have lost my dream home. I am so greatful to have picked him, out of a line up of realtors one day whille looking online, just as you are now. I promise you will not regret working with him.

First, most important Thank you Joe thank you. I didn't know how i was going to go about the home i have had for years in S.A Tenant moving out , I don't live in San Antonio. didn't know what the inside looked like, you were my eyes and told me how it was whether pretty ugly or ok, what was needed, remodel, repair, updating. should i sell or rent?, but with your help and knowledge of the market we where able to start the process, then finish the remodel. Then making a decision, based on the knowledge you gave me, combined with my circumstances, my wife and I continue renting the home. it sure would of been harder to do this on my own. What i liked the most is that you made me feel that i was the only customer you had, yes sometimes you were busy but i did get a phone call back from u when i left you a message that required it. sometimes i just called to keep u informed. but our meting was what helped me the most to make the decision Rent or Sell.

I cannot say enough positive things about Alex Marti at SellSmart Realty. Alex was with us every step of the way on our homebuying experience. Alex was very knowledgeable in all aspects of the process and made what could have been a very stressful experience a relatively smooth process. I genuinely felt that Alex was on our side and had our best interests at heart. It is evident that he is a true professional who has a passion for his job. He was always very prompt to return our text messages and answer any questions that came up throughout the process. He treated us as if we were his only client. We had an issue that came up after closing and when we happened to mention it to him, he took care of it quickly and effortlessly even though he didn't have to.

I was ready to buy a house and I decided to go with Mr. Corwin for the 1% rebate. I met with Mr. Corwin and I explained what i wanted in a home. After a lengthy conversation, (he was very easy going and found out we had things in common) he gave me a password to look into the real estate database that was configured to my wants. After I picked out the houses I wanted to look at, I met with Mr. Alex Marti from the business who became my personal realtor. Alex was very professional and helped me look at all the houses I had chosen. We looked at 5 and the last one was the one I wanted. He was very quick to put in the offer and carefully negotiated the counter offer the sellers proposed. After that, he was very helpful and guided me along to signing all the documents that i needed to lock down the house. While waiting on my mortgage lender to approve my loan, there was about a two week span where I didnt hear from him which was kinda disturbing. Close to my closing date, we started talks again. I had questions for the seller which i conveyed to him to ask and he admitted he forgot to ask and then did so right after. At signing time, he wasn't there at the process but did make up for it by having the keys delivered to his office when i couldnt pick them up. All in all, I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was extremely helpful and professional and catered to my needs as much as they could. The only drawback I would say is that they seemed really busy and were not as much in contact than I would think. But I would definitely recommend this realtor again!!

He showed me several great houses around the city, and was quick to produce comps on houses I was interested in.

Joe Corwin was extremely friendly and very well prepared when we first met with him to look for houses. We were coming from out of state, and Joe spent Father's Day weekend taking us to look at 33 houses in three days. Joe seemed to get a sense of exactly what we wanted in a house. We made an offer on a house, and then left town to go pack up our old house. The house that we were looking to get didn't have enough pictures on the website, and we wanted to see more to refresh our memories. So we asked Joe if was able to go by that house to take some more pictures and send them to us. Upon going over to the house, he noticed a house that was a few doors down from the other house that was For Sale by Owner. He called the owner and went to take a look at the house. After spending so much time with us looking at other houses, Joe knew exactly what we wanted. So when the bank came back with a counter offer and wanted more money from us, we declined. Joe mentioned the house that was For Sale by Owner, telling us that we were getting more house for the money. Because he was bringing us as buyers to the person selling the house, he was able to broker the deal on both sides. To this day, he still treats us like one of his clients and remembers our names as well as our kids, like he just talked to us the other day. If we ever sell our house, and look to buy another, we will definitely go with Joe. And the 1% Buyer Rebate is just icing on the cake. GO WITH JOE!!! Less ... More

The 1% buyer rebate was awesome, it really helped out after closing with renovations to my house. Joe was a huge help in the whole process. He was available at all hours of the week which worked well with my busy schedule. Joe was very informative about each step of the process, and even offered follow up help after the closing. He truly is not your average Joe.

Joe was sharp and personable. He called to let us know someone else was putting a contract on the home, so our offer could be considered in the nick of time. He recommended an excellent home professional who found important needed repairs we didn't notice at viewing and had them repaired before purchase. Because of him, the sellers included the Home Warranty--a $400 value. Plus we received a rebate over $1100 from Joe! We love the home and we love Joe!

My wife and I just closed on a wonderful home we bought through a short sale Joe Corwin found for us. We had heard short sales often times lead to frustration and delays but Joe advised us on how to effectively work with the parties involved and through Joe's knowledge and guidance we were able to buy a real nice home at a real bargain! This is the second home we purchased through Joe Corwin and his fine staff and would never consider working with anyone else in San antonio for our real estate needs. We are so happy to have found Joe and his staff, the more we work with him the more we appreciate and admire the sincere and professional Gentleman that he is. If you have plans to buy or sell a house in San Antonio GO SEE JOE! The best there is in San Antonio! Jim H. Less ... More

Joe Corwin is the best realator. We had worked with two others before and they were not interested in really helping us. It was obvious they just wanted to make a quick sale. Every house Joe took us to, he would always let us know the pros and cons, and he NEVER tried to rush us. He also NEVER tried to "sell " the home, such as saying lets negotiate or make a offer on this one, etc. He listened to our needs and wants, and we are truly greatful to him and his team for helping us buy our dream home, in a great area, at a great price. Thank you Joe and Chelsea. Less ... More

Mr. Corwin was so helpful in taking us through the process of choosing and purchasing our first home. Not only did he listen and respond to our needs as homebuyers, but he treated us like family; with respect, honesty, and integrity. I have, and will continue to recommend Joe to my friend's and family.

We drove by this house and called Joe Corwin's number. He came out immediately and showed us the house. He answered all of our questions and needs promptly and honestly throughout the process. He was patient and respectful of all of our concerns and we never felt abandoned or uncomfortable. He was the listing agent for this house and did a great job of helping us. And the 1% check was a great ending to a very smooth and great process. Thank you and your staff for great service.

From day 1 he started to send us houses to review, as we requested. He was very fast with his information, answered all calls, responded to emailed questions quickly. Very professional and accomodating, met us at our convenience. He was great. That was in 2011. We like him even more now in 2014 when he helped us sell a lot we had. He was very professional and communicates frequently, answers our questions quickly and appropriately. I can not say enough good things about Joe.

Joe Corwin is a fantastic realtor! From the very first phone call all the way through closing he was prompt, knowledgeable and professional. If you are in the market for a top notch realtor. Look no further than Joe. Great service plus a 1% rebate at closing...what more could you ask for.

My wife and I accidentally stumbled on Joe when we made calls on a property he was the agent for. The genuineness, assertiveness and commitment to client's total satisfaction are the striking qualities that makes Joe so unique. He was never satisfied until we were and he showed us lots of properties until we narrowed our choices and eventually picked one. As our Loan Consultant often joked, our file was "jinxed" and "snake-bitten" during escrow and so stayed a little longer. But during this extended escrow period, Joe stood by us and stepped up on the Equity company, creating a formidable alliance with them that eventually broke the "jinx" and got us our home. Less ...

I bought my house less than a year ago, at that time Joe was my agent, and I was very happy with the excellent service he provided. When I had to sell my house due to relocation, I did not think twice where to go for help, Sell Smart was my 1st and only choice, why go for big names when you get better service for less money.

Joe Corwin was my agent and he was very helpful and informed about the market. He was very personable and he was very honest, which is very important when buying and selling a house. They offer great deals with 1.95% when you sell and 1% rebate when you purchase a new home. That 1% was very helpful when it came time to purchase items for our wonderful new house. Would definitely recommend him to others as well as use him for future real estate needs

Joe is amazing! He makes himself very available to his clients. Further, Joe has great contacts. He will guide you through the whole process so you don't have to worry about anything other than hiring movers:) As if this wasn't enough, Joe gives you 1% of his earning of the sale. The simply isn't another realtor who will treat you like family. Thanks Joe!

Joe was very patient with me as I tried to find my perfect home. He was always available and always pointed at things I needed to think about. Since I am from out of state I relied on his knowledge of the city, neighborhoods and the market to help me decide where to look and what to look for. During the closing of the home, Joe was actually more helpful than my lender! He was always following up and keeping me informed of what was happening. I am so thankful that I found Joe and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor. Less ... More

I had the pleasure of meeting Joe Corwin right after Christmas 2010. Immediately I knew I was in good hands. Joe listened to my needs and concerns and VERY quickly showed my wife and I the perfect home to fill our requirements. Joe is by far the most qualified and impressive Real estate professional I have ever met. I would be proud to refer Joe to my friends and family knowing that they would be well taken care of. We closed on our new property Feb 4 2011 and we could not be happier! Many thanks to Joe and his staff for a wonderful experience! Jim H. Less ... More

Mr. Joe Corwin diligently applied his expertise in obtaining a buyer during this difficult real estate market. His repeated insightful advice on presenting the home to enhance its sale was appreciated. We were much impressed with his obtaining the cost-effective local services needed to keep the house on the market. We highly and respectfully recommend his services to home buyers or sellers in the Bexar County. Thank you, Mr. Corwin.
