Charleston SC Real Estate Buyer Testimonials
My wife and I are very satisfied with the way you conducted yourself. You drove us to several used houses and there was a few that we liked to buy. This was the better part of a day driving my wife and I around too find a home. The prices of the homes Joe showed us were within our price range but we just couldn't decide on a house we really liked for this big investment.
Then Joe took us to where they were building new houses. The price range of the new Centex houses were slightly more then the used houses. We decided too buy a new house because of the price and the new houses we looked at were beautiful. In 5 months the house was built and in 6 months we moved into our new home and have loved our new home since the day we moved into it.
Thank You Joe,
David and Kay Adams
We first met Joe in 2005 and worked closely with him until we closed on our new home in August 2006. This is a testament to his patience and dedication to the families that he serves. Upon visiting several homes together with our three children, Joe learned their names and interest as if he was part of the family. It was helpful in asking our final selection and everyone felt very comfortable with Joe. After settling into our new home, Joe even sent us a gift to congratulate us. If you are in the market for a home or selling an existing, one, please give him a call.

What can I say about Carolina Joe? From day one, when we began to look for a place to call home in Charleston, SC Joe was there. We first started to communicate with Joe by email for about 6 months prior to meeting him. We were living in Pittsburgh, PA and wanted to move south but didn't know where to begin. We told Joe the range $$ of housing we were looking in, and Joe took it from there. But Joe wasn't like most other realtor's and told us to look and take our time before we decide on anything. We were also contacted by other realtor's, but they always upped the ante when shopping for homes. If we said we were looking at $175,000.00 homes...they would show us $200-250,000.00 homes. Carolina Joe always showed us many kinds and different styles of homes, and in different locations, but always in our price range. In the end, it was Carolina Joe that found us our dream home, within our price range and we are very happy with our decision. Carolina Joe is up-front and honest. If he doesn't know the answer to a question...he will find it out. Above all he is a gentleman who really puts his heart into helping people find a place that they can call home. And we made a great friend in the end. Thank you Carolina Joe!

My husband and I did not have a lot of time to make a huge decision - purchasing a home in the Charleston area. He was transferred and I also got a job. So our start dates were driving our timeline. We had never been to Charleston before and didn't know anyone here. We were worried about connecting with a Real Estate agent who would be a good fit us. Our complicating factors were the limited time, our specific criteria and not knowing the area at all. We did extensive internet searches and decide to work with Carolina Joe. Oh my goodness - what a blessing! Joe is the consummate professional and unlike any agent we have ever worked with. He took so much time with us and was available every day at any time that we needed him. He always made us feel like we were his only customer - but we knew that wasn't the case. Joe showed us 71 houses - several multiple times. We looked all over John's Island, West Ashley, Charleston and Mount Pleasant. Joe's insight into the areas and neighborhoods was critical in helping us make our decision of where we wanted to live. Finding a house is just the beginning. Joe was exceptionally helpful throughout the purchase and contract process. We actually had a ratified contract on what we thought was 'the house' only to have the builder default. Then we were back to square one. It was the most gut wrenching headache of an experience and we would not have gotten through it without Joe's support. We finally ended up with the home of our dreams that was even better than the first house. But it was a difficult and emotional process. By now Joe had become more than our agent, we consider him a friend. Along the way, he has done so much for us above and beyond the call of duty of an agent. Since we're new to Charleston we still have questions about services, etc. and I don't hesitate to call Joe. And he is always there for us. We would highly recommend Carolina Joe for your real estate needs. We purchased what we hope to be our last home in Park West. If you would like an endorsement for living in Mount Pleasant and/or Park West, we would be happy to talk to you. Good luck on your home buying adventure. Carolina Joe will make it a positive experience - Guaranteed!

I knew Joe before he went into real estate. That is why I called on Joe when I got ready to move. I used Joe to sell my old house and help me with buying the new house. Knowing Joe's integrity and work ethics, I would not have considered anyone else.

My husband and I have been interested in buying some land for possible future use for a couple of years now. We had looked around the internet at different realtor sites and found Joe’s site. For over a year, he has sent us properties on a weekly basis. We were finally able to visit S Carolina and meet with Joe. We spent the day with him and were able to find and secure two small lots on John’s Island. He was very helpful and very easy to talk with. We both felt he was honest and open about the different properties we saw. It was a very good
experience for us and we hope he’ll keep us in mind for future lot purchases.

From start to finish you were absolutely fantastic. We could not have done it without you. You never got tired with all the questions we had. You were very helpful at getting us the information for the home insurance and real estate tax appeal. Thank you very much for all your help.
The best of luck and success Joe!

As we considered relocating to Charleston, we contacted "Carolina Joe" Idleman to give us a tour and sort of a "feel" for the housing here. It didn't matter that we weren't even sure about relocating - Joe drove us around town most of a day and gave us tons of good information. We appreciated his direct and honest approach, as well as his attentiveness to our needs in a home.
Shortly thereafter, as luck would have it, our home in Miami sold in record time and we needed a place to live! So it's back to Charleston and back into the trusty hands of Carolina Joe! After we were done exploring over a dozen homes the first day, Joe's charming wife was gracious enough to join us for dinner and discuss other aspects of Low Country life. (Joe and I were happy to discuss football).
Then, early into the next day, we hit the jackpot. Joe had listened attentively to every "requirement" we had expressed, and showed us a beautiful home that fit just right. As a true professional, he worked with us every step of the way, all the way up through the closing. Always on time, on point, and looking out for us. It was a pleasure working with an experienced Realtor who also happens to be a heck of a nice guy.

Joe, my experience with you as my Realtor has been nothing less than excellent. You are easy to get in touch with if I should have any questions about buying or selling a home. Joe, my family and I can count on you to come through for us whenever we need you. I feel good about recommending you to any family member or friends. My prayers are with you and your Family. May God continue to Bless you and your family and your business.

It was impressive when you sold the 4 bedrooms plus frog home so quick in these times.
However, now that you sold the condo, while the neighbors are still waiting for buyers is beyond impressive! Thanks so much for your help and availability.
