Joel served as our broker/representative in selling a property in Eddy, Texas and purchasing a property in Hewitt, Texas.
This process proved to be uniquely challenging. The property in Eddy, over one acre in size, had an extensive fruit and vegetable growing operation, along with a rainwater collection system. Because of these features, the property tended to be attractive to a limited number of potential buyers. In addition, the purchase of the second property involved offers contingent on selling the first property.
Joel managed this process with remarkable efficiency and professionalism. His attention to detail and capacity for multi-tasking was superb; he closely monitored the many dynamics involved in the sale of one property and purchase of the second, ensuring a successful conclusion. He always maintained a positive and professional posture. Joel’s knowledge of the real estate market, his strong advocacy for us, and his ongoing guidance proved to be extremely helpful in achieving our goal. He truly went above and beyond what was required of a real estate representative.
Without reservation, we recommend Joel to anyone seeking a highly effective real estate professional.

When our son was attending Baylor, Joel helped us find the absolute perfect town home for us to purchase. He was very knowledgeable about the area and we were thrilled with the property we purchased. Fast forward 3 years and after graduation when we were ready to sell there was no question who we would call. He does all the work! Time is very valuable and we didn't have to waste ours making sure he was doing his job....sold our place in a timely and efficient manner with minimal effort on our part. Thanks Joel!

Sergio and I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your hard work finding us our new home, and selling our old one. Your handling of all the details, especially while we were out of town, was so helpful and much appreciated. It could have been a very stressful experience, but your knowledge and contacts made it easy for us. I especially appreciated you keeping us informed and promptly answering any questions that came up. We'll recommend you at every opportunity in the future.

We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your time, efforts, flexibility and good cheer through our buying process from out of town. We appreciate your knowledge of the market, skills in negotiations, presence at inspections and covering for us at the final walk through. You made the challenging prospect of buying a home from out of town, so much easier. I will recommend you to new faculty and staff at Baylor. You are our "Uber" realtor and one of the finest persons we have met.

My wife Marylaine and I are truly grateful for the excellent service that you provided us, both at the front end with selling our home in the suburbs, as well as at the final conclusion, which was assisting us with the purchase of our downtown condominium. We are especially grateful that you found a way to move us early into our condominium because our home literally “sold too fast” (not at bad problem to have had). You were on top of things every step of the way, and we always felt valued as your clients. We will continue to recommend our friends to you.

"We met Joel Burns while in the market for a downtown condo, and he was so helpful and professional that we knew we right away that wanted him to handle the sale of our own home.
We have now been clients for over six months, and Joel has never wavered in our first impression of him. He has always been available, and has kept us informed of every detail affecting the sale of our home and purchase of our condo. The advice he gave us on getting our house ready to put on the market no doubt was a key factor in it selling in the first week it was shown.
I really felt that he was our advocate throughout every step, and making such important transactions, it is such a comfort to have someone you trust in your corner. I have heartily recommended Joel to friends here for their real estate needs, and will continue to do so.

We want to thank Joel Burns with RE/Max for listing and selling our house it within 30 days. We had a wonderful experience with Joel in selling our home and finding the perfect new home for us! He went above and beyond to make everything happen whenever we needed him. We were really pleased on how Joel helped tremendously during the negotiation process and guiding us through (and handling) so many of the little details involved. We are so grateful to him. Our experience with Joel (RE/Max) was outstanding and will recommend him to anyone.
Anthony and Tammy R.--Waco, Texas (First Time Client)
We were referred to Joel Burns by a friend almost ten years ago when we decided to look for and purchase our first home. Joel did a wonderful job helping us negotiate with a difficult seller at that time, so when we were ready to sell that home last year, we did not hesitate calling upon his services once again. Although it took a little time to find the right buyer, Joel gave timely and honest feedback from the very beginning through the closing date. However, the greatest thing about working with Joel was not being worried if he had our best interests in mind. When you don't have to be concerned if your realtor is trying to sell your home for less than what you deserve, or put you in a house you aren't totally sold on, it's a great thing. As such, we again trusted Joel to help us find another home to purchase and to see us through that process as well. Even three months later, he has checked in on our progress and how we are settling in the home and neighborhood. He is truly a top-notch realtor.
