I inherited a house with problems plus I live in Ca. A realtor here recommended Joe so I contacted him to sell the house. Sight unseen he did a great job negotiating with the mortgage company, finding a seller, selling it at a great price, and managing all long distance escrow work. I highly recommend Joe DiRaffaele for any real estate transaction.

After four months of a horrible experience with another agent, I decided to to interview 10 agents. Joe DiRaffaele and Greg Clemens from Dg Realty Group won the competition. They staged my home and backyard, had professional pictures taken by Joes' wife Shannon, and place my home on the market. They did the first showing and received contract within two days. We could not have hoped for more from them. Greg Clemens was so helpful and supportive throughout we could hardly believe it. Oh, and the best part was that they sold the home for $10,000 more then the first realtor predicted we would actually get. Joe and Greg are Masters at what they do. Carol Smith Less ... More

I was an out of state seller and needed someone I could trust. I needed someone who knew the market. I needed someone who could act as if I were standing next to them. I needed someone who was professional and would keep me informed of the important aspects. I needed and found Joe DiRaffaele. He always looks and acts professional, and still maintains a jolly sense of humor to make him both enjoyable to work with and someone I would enjoy and trust as a close friend. I highly recommend Joe to handle your real estate needs. Relax. You found a good one here. I've spent 22 years in the military, I know good team players. He definitely qualifies. Less ... More

I used another Realtor in Joe's office - Greg Clemons. But all the staff at DG including two other realtors I met where congenial and professional. I've lived in Vegas 15 years and worked with 5 other realtors, one of which we filed an ethics complaint against and got a monetary settlement from for dishonesty. I was thrilled to finally find a good apple.

Joe was amazing and put his plan into action immediately suggesting a fresh coat of paint and some minor cosmetic fixes, we were able to stand out from the rest and get highest price per foot of all recent comps, sold within 48 hours of listing with multiple offers at 3K over asking which was already on high end for area. I would not hesitate to recommend Joe and his TEAM as they all worked together to make effortless and painless as possible with no "surprises" and super smooth transaction.

When it came time to buy my first house I was terrified! I didn't know what to expect and was very ignorant to the whole process. Shannon and Joe made the experience wonderful and down right easy! They got us everything thing we wanted and more. They made the whole process and experience exciting, enjoyable, and care free. I would constantly bother them day and night with tons of questions and inquires, and they held my hand giving me all the answers and guided me the whole way. I can9;t say enough how amazing their group is and how great my experience was, not to mention the great deal I got and the amount of professional, personal attention that we received! I would refer them to any and everyone and will always is them for any and all real estate dealings! Less ... More

Joe and Shannan did an amazing job helping me with both of my last two house purchases. They were very focused on helping me not only find houses that included my list of wants and needs, but also in pointing out perks and issues that I would not have considered. Both times I ended up with a perfect house to suit my needs. With my second home, we also sold my first home at the same time and Joe and Shannan did a great job managing the timing of both so that my sale went through at the same time as the purchase They are very through, professional, and approachable and will work with you to find the perfect home.

I hired Joe to find our new house based on recommendations from our lender as well as other positive reviews from friends and colleagues. We sat down with him and told him exactly what we wanted to find, down to the street, school district, pool, bedrooms, etc. We thought it would be a tall order, but Joe delivered. Because of his extensive buyer/seller network he has knowledge of houses before they come on the market. The first house he brought us to was our dream house. As soon as we walked in we knew he checked off every box on our wish list. He was also selling our house at the same time so he was under a tremendous amount of pressure to deliver a buyer for us or we would lose our dream home. He did it-we literally went from listing to closing on both houses in 6 weeks! Joe is and will be our only Vegas Realtor. I highly recommend him if you are serious about buying or selling your house.

Joe assisted me in selling 2 listings for my aging mother. Not only was his service professional, he had all the documents transmitted electronically and even provided the services of a mobile notary to assist my mother. He is very professional and sold these properties within 30 days. These were not fire sale properties, we received full market value. Thank you Joe.

I was referred to Shannon Fogle of DiRaffaele Group by my brother and sister-in-law who had purchased a home in Henderson, NV. They were pleased with her efforts, so I called her when I started looking for a new home. Shannon was ever vigilant in finding listings that fit the parameters I had set for my next living space. She was/is very knowledgeable about the Las Vegas/Henderson housing market, and she answered my questions honestly--giving me the pros and cons of whatever decision I considering along the way. I appreciated Shannon's no b.s. style. It was quite refreshing. Now, I live in a three story, solidly built home with two decks that overlook the Las Vegas valley and the mountains east of the city. I find my current living circumstances quite peaceful even though a metropolis that never sleeps is literally spread out before my eyes up here on the eastern hills. Shannon helped me find my tranquil little abode. Thanks, Shannon. A few months after settling into my new home I contacted Shannon once more to help me sell my previous residence. She and Joe had my home listed all over the web, so exposure was quite good--to say the least. I ended up selling the home fairly quickly at a price slightly below what I was asking. Given the market realities I was pleased. So, as of today I've used the services of DiRaffaele Group twice, and I would use them again. Thank you, Shannon and Joe. Less ... More

Joe is one of the most professional real estate brokers I have ever encountered. He navigated the tricky Vegas market with ease and got me a higher price that I ever thought possible. Even when there were a few snags with our buyer's loan paperwork, Joe took control of the situation and smoothed out all of the wrinkles. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in Las Vegas, Joe D is the one you gotta see!!

Joe helped my family purchase and sell a home. He worked hard to help us save money on our purchase by negotiating with the sellers agent. When it came to selling our home he negotiated every part of the transaction keeping us informed on what seemed like every penny of our Equity. What impressed me most about Joe was his communication through out our Escrow. Having experienced other Realtors it was very impressive how informed he kept my family on what was happening. I would recommend Joe to any one thinking of buying or selling Real Estate. Less ... More

He was very patient during my search and only showed properties that met my requests in the area that I identified. Once the property was identified, Joe was there all the way to the end and was always available for questions and guidance.

Joe and his team were outstanding from the initial consultation to closing on not one sale but two simultaneously involving the timing, logistics, and coordination required for everything to come out at the same time and with the additional complexities of an out of state move. Everything was handled with aplomb that exceeded our expectations in what was a volatile and iffy market. Joe and his team were consultative throughout, set realistic expectations, and addressed our many concerns with professionalism and a requisite sense of urgency when the situation demanded. We interviewed several highly recommended area Reactors, Joe stood out from the crowd and proved our intuition correct. We cannot recommend Joe and his team highly enough, our only regret being that when the time comes in our new state to engage a Realtor we won't be able to utilize his excellent services here!

Joseph DiRaffaele and his group recently sold my house in 3 days (Incredible). I don't normally do reviews but I felt in this case it is warranted. I needed to sale my house in record time because I had found a new house I fell in love with. I explained my situation and his team of professionals went into action. Joe came into my home and showed me the best way to show my house, and what people are looking for. His photographer came in and did a virtual slide show that looks so good I almost did want to sale it looked so good. 3 days later I had a buyer that was solid. The same week I signed the paperwork for my new home and all that was left was to wait for escrow. I want to thank his office, and staff for being friendly, professional, staying on top of my buyer, my docs, my new builders, and handling my affairs in a personal and caring way. I would recommend there service to anyone looking to buy or sale. Top notch Organization! Less ... More

Joe assisted me with my home purchase in 2004 and then again 2006 and was an amazing resource! He was patient with me and all of my questions as a first time home buyer and was my very first call when I was ready to move up. His knowledge of real estate is unmatched and his negotiating skills are really quite scary- I would not want to be on the other side of the phone- I say this somewhat tongue-in-cheek because he is always on the lookout for the "win-win" situation but he is absolute bulldog if someone is attempting to "pull a fast one."

After having the exact house next door sit on the market for two months, multiple open houses and with no offers I was very nervous about the timing of selling our home. Joe assured us he would have the house sold within 30 days so we listed it on a Tuesday. Within three days we had six offers, all more than the asking price. By Monday of the next week we had an offer ready to go to escrow. I am now sitting here with check in hand exactly six weeks after listing our home. The professionalism of Joe's staff was beyond perfect, never once did I have to wonder where we were in the process. Thank you Joe for taking the stress out of what could have been a very stressful situation. And by the way we really appreciate you selling our home for $25,000.00 more than the house just sold for next door. Less ... More

From the first time I met with Joe, I found him to be extremely professional & knowledgeable. He has many years of experience and immediately made me feel comfortable allowing him to sell my home for me. He explained the process and realtor language in layman's terms so that I could understand. At any time if I had a question, he would respond quickly making me feel as if I were his only client. I felt he was always looking out for me and had my best interest in mind. At the time when others were having difficulty selling their homes, Joe was able to close mine quickly while getting me the best price possible. I am truly grateful! The idea of the process was a nightmare for me however, from beginning to end it was the smoothest sell I've experienced.
