Joanne and George have extraordinary expertise in listing, showing, and ultimately selling real estate. This was demonstrated in their knowledge and attention to detail in every aspect of the sale of our parents' home, from staging, to open houses, and finally to closing. And their patience and tender touch in dealing with us, deer in headlights, got us through a difficult time. We will highly recommend them to all our friends who are looking to sell. We wouldn't go any other way
We were very happy with the Fiori Team. They helped us buy and sell and home. They are professional, knowledgeable and always make themselves available( day or night). We would absolutely recommend them.
"I have always known Joanne and George Fiori to be caring, gentle and helpful people. As neighbors for 15 years this was made evident to me in so many ways, so many times. So when it came time to put my house on the market, of course I turned to the Fiori's for their expertise as brokers.
Selling a house and making a move – especially a long distance one out of state, is known to be one of life's greatest stressors – both physically and emotionally. If not for Joanne and George being there for me every step of the way, guiding me through the process, giving me a shoulder to lean on, or a helping hand when the physical burden was too much to handle alone, I would never have made it to closing.
I could not trust them more, respect them more, or recommend them more highly to anyone in need of a real estate agent to either buy or sell a home. You will make a friend in the process and if you are as lucky as me, they will become part of your extended family."
“We highly recommend Joanne Fiori. Few months back we made an appointment to see one of Joanne’s listing. Although we did not purchase that property, we were very impressed with Joanne that we decided to use Joanne for the sale of our home. We had many other agents to choose from but Joanne and George came with an action plan to get it done. They are professional, honest, most knowledgeable and always available. They were very responsive to our needs. They did not disappoint. They helped us prep, market and even get many offers during the first open house. Throughout the entire process, Joanne and George were there for us every step of the way to answer our questions, address our concerns and address any issues with the process. We are very happy to have listed our home with the Fiori Team. They are simply the best!”
“I am delighted to provide this review for Joanne and George Fiori. Basically, they are unbelievably wonderful. Not only are they seasoned professionals with the highest work ethic, but they are also terrific people- down to earth, warm, generous of spirit, overly generous of their time and fun! In a nutshell, the Fiori's recently represented us on the sale of our family home. My parents purchased the house in the early '60's and the prospect of selling and cleaning it all out was a daunting prospect fraught with fear, anxiety and also sadness for me. And it was an overwhelming process. But the Fiori's were with us every step of the way. They were caring and supportive and even more amazingly "roll up your sleeves" hands-on. This includes joining us the last few days in actually helping my mom and I clear out the house! They were above and beyond. They were literally our partners in the whole process. I really cannot say enough about them and about what a pleasure it was to work with each of them. And above all, I am happy to call them friends. I owe George and Joanne a heartfelt thanks and can only say that I consider it a privilege to have had the experience of working with them.”
“One is not frequently in a situation to sell a house. Because of this , there is uncertainty, trepidation, and often emotion. How to deal with the details, what price to ask for, how to get the whole thing accomplished. I was recently faced with selling my childhood home after the death of my mother. A friend recommended George and Joanne Fiori. I read the recommendations on this and other sites, spoke with Joanne, and decided instantly that this was right for me. To say that my expectations were met is actually an understatement. George and Joanne promptly staged the house, reassured me as to the best asking price, helped me choose among a number of offers, negotiated with the buyer for slightly more than the original offer, recommended a wonderful lawyer, and shepherded me through the process including the closing. All of that might be expected, but in addition they were so kind and personally helpful to me. It seemed nothing was too much. They even helped me sort through my mother’s belongings when it seemed overwhelming. They returned to the house many times to help get everything distributed- in a tag sale, to charities or other interested parties. They did more than they even told me about. Phone calls and emails were promptly answered. Through the whole process, I felt I had support, allies. I really felt that they cared about me personally. I would recommend them to anyone, wholeheartedly. 6 out of 5 stars. I only wish I had more houses to buy or sell!”
“I am writing to give The Fiori Team our highest recommendation. George and Joanne possess all the necessary attributes of excellent brokers. They know the market extremely well; they are both diligent, responsive, and very patient with their clients. George and Joanne are both very professional and personable. They clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In our particular case, as a seller, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance The Fiori Team was a great help, going above and beyond.
It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than George and Joanne, or being anything but happy in choosing to work with them.”
“Our experience with both George and Joanne was such a fabulous one. They both made the whole process of selling our house such an enjoyable one. Their knowledge and expertise in the real estate field was very impressive. They not only were our agents but we can consider them friends now. Anyone who decides to use them will certainly not be disappointed. We highly recommend them both.”
"If I could give more than five stars I would, because George and Joanne are truly phenomenal real estate agents. Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with George and Joanne. I would highly recommend them to everyone. They are extremely detailed, patient and above all have integrity, commitment and a great heart. George helped us find exactly what we were looking for! He kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continues to follow up with us and I can't thank them enough. They give 110% - they are undeniably the BEST at what they do."
"Kudos to Joanne and George Fiori! Selling our home of 37 years with the Fiori's proved to a wonderful experience from start to finish. They were attentive, reliable, knowledgeable and supportive throughout the entire process. They came highly recommended by neighbors and friends, and after working with them we could see why. We would recommended the Fiori's without reservation to anyone who is interested in selling or buying a residence. Thank you George and Joanne!"
"The Fiori Team recently helped us sell our home. It was nice to work with people that listened to our concerns rather than salespeople that only wanted to sell a house and make a commission. They also recommended a really nice attorney, which made the whole sales process less stressful."
"George and Joanne, very kind, professional, soft-spoken, punctual, smart, insightful.......I am running out of superlatives. I was a first time buyer with no knowledge of how the housing market works. From Day 1 George guided me thoroughly and professionally. He would explain the finer details and also salient features of each house that he showed me. He used to send me e-mails during weekdays when I was busy at work and at weekends spend enough time with me for house hunting. From paper work to inspection to talking to the sellers he guided me one baby step at a time. He was available whenever I called him. When he was out of town, Joanne stepped in and helped me. Always ready and full of knowledge George and Joanne were a blessing in disguise. They have fantastic networking and excellent support from other agents as well. They have a very very sound knowledge of the neighborhood.I could not have found a beautiful house without you. I thank you and thank you so much."
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation on behalf of George and Joanne Fiori of Realty Connect USA. They are such special and dedicated real estate agents and are truly a pleasure to work with. They genuinely care for their clients and help them every step of the way. The best way to describe them would be “Amazing!” Their dedication, patience, knowledge and sincerity stand out from all the rest. We are so appreciative that we met someone like George who really helped my mom with her real estate transactions.
This is our story of how we met George and Joanne Fiori. In January 2013, my childhood home in Roslyn Heights burned down. Although I had “left the nest” and moved out of this home several years ago, this was still the treasured home of my mother for close to 50 years. Suddenly losing a house with all of the possessions was devastating to our family, especially for my mother. Within less than 24 hours she received an onslaught of phone calls from insurance agents, construction companies and real estate agents. A lot of these people didn’t have my mother’s best interests in mind and wanted to take advantage of her and make a quick buck. It was a very stressful time where we had to navigate through unchartered territory of what to do next.
Luckily, my mother was referred to the real estate office of George and Joanne Fiori through a friend of hers. Her friend had previously down sized and sold her house and bought an apartment and raved about how caring, compassionate and helpful they had been. George and Joanne assessed my mom’s house and went over with her the pros and cons of rebuilding vs selling the land and finding a new place to live. They always took the time to listen to her concerns and gently guided her by giving her sound advice about what would be the best option for her.
As a family, we came to the conclusion that it would be best if my mother sold the land and property “as is” and not rebuild. George was great in marketing the house and reaching out by personal contacts, e-mails and by phone calls to several investors and construction companies who might be interested in buying land to build a house. He set a realistic price for the sale of the property and we even had a bidding war from several potential investors. Throughout this process George communicated with my family on a daily basis. I am one of four siblings. He made sure that he kept everybody “in the loop” with his e-mails and phone calls so that we could collaboratively make a decision. Without George’s help we would have been lost in the process and certainly would have gotten a lot less money for the property.
Selling the house was a major decision; but one that was really the best option for my mom. George took my mother around to several different types of apartments to see which would be the best fit for her. He then took her to the Amsterdam at Harborside in Port Washington. From the minute she walked in and heard classical music and saw how beautiful the facility was and how welcoming the people were, she knew that she had found her future dwelling. George was there for her when she took the tour and was there for her during each of her meetings with the Amsterdam coordinators. He helped our family navigate through the paperwork and guided us in many important decisions. He is trustworthy and sincere and I am proud to say that we now consider him not just our real estate agent but our cherished friend. He gives such personalized attention to his clients and we have always felt that we have been in “great hands” with him. Unlike some real estate agents, he is not just looking to make a quick commission and then to move on to the next client. He readily helps his clients and is reliable, responsible, and honest and a true pleasure to work with.
We are so fortunate that my mother’s friend recommended George and Joanne Fiori of Realty Connect USA. In turn, we would like to share our recommendation of George and Joanne with anybody who is considering selling or buying a house in Long Island and Queens. They stand out way above all the rest! I highly recommend both George and Joanne Fiori who made all of my mother’s real estate transactions go smoothly. You will be amazed at how professional, dedicated and helpful they are. Thanks George and Joanne for a job well done! You simply are THE BEST! Sincerely,
"Joanne and George Fiori went above and beyond what a typical broker does when they work on selling a home. They jumped in with both feet...the process was expeditious and smooth. They are both knowledgeable and personable and their advice was invaluable."
Dear George and Joanne,
"I''m thrilled to write a referral letter for the two of you - what a team!
Joanne, I was very impressed with your patience. Most agents I had worked with always seemed interested in a quick sale, but you took the time to understand our needs and try and find the right home for us, even if it took a bit longer. Thanks for all of your help!
George, your knowledge of the house structure, contractors, the buying process and procedures was invaluable. To top it off your negotiating expertise got us our dream home.
You both are in it for the long run, and it shows."
Best of luck,
“From start to finish it was evident that the Fiori's were dedicated and professional, yet personal and caring at the same time. They were always available to take my calls, address my concerns, answer any questions and provide the support I needed along the way. In my opinion they went above and beyond to ensure that my house was presented in its most favorable light which subsequently resulted in an expeditious sales process.
I would certainly recommend The Fiori Team to anyone embarking on a home purchase or sale.”
“What can I say about the woman who cared enough to find us the home of our dreams? Joanne Fiori is an outstanding realtor who goes to great lengths to make your home selling and buying process both efficient and pleasurable. She is the epitome of professionalism and knowledge. When we first met Joanne, we had quite a specific list concerning our future home.My husband and I wanted it all. We decided to leave our current home and find a new location with better schools, a bigger backyard, and of course, room for all of our interests. Joanne not only showed us every house we saw online, but found us the perfect house, in a neighborhood I never even considered. Fortunately, Joanne knows her business and her clients because the house was perfect, the neighborhood was exactly what we were looking for and even the price was right. Joanne knew us better than we knew ourselves.
In so far as selling our current home, our criteria was no less challenging. We needed to sell our home in order to purchase the new one; we have an infant whose schedule we did not want to interrupt, and a dog who greeted everyone with high-spirited energy. Needless to say, Joanne always made it work for us as well as the buyers visiting our home. Her astounding professionalism, passion and excitement made us feel like we were working with a friend and not just a realtor. We cannot tell you how much we appreciated the number of hours spent with us in person, and by phone, keeping us totally informed every step of the way - morning and night. We would not hesitate to recommend Joanne Fiori to other potential clients and are thankful to have worked with her.”
“We had the wonderful opportunity of working with Joanne and George Fiori on the sale of our home at 165 Peachtree Lane, Roslyn Heights, New York. Joanne and George are extremely professional and well-organized. They marketed our home through many venues including the Internet. Their use of the “Open House” to sell the house created a venue where many prospective buyers could view the house and through this venue, the house was sold within 5 weeks of listing it with them. Our home had been listed with another agent for 2 years and had not been sold during that time. Joanne and George proved with their diligent efforts that the house was marketable even during a real estate housing crisis.
We highly recommend Joanne and George Fiori to anyone selling a home. Experience demonstrates that they will work diligently for you until your home is sold."
Very truly yours,
“I worked with Joanne to purchase my house and the first thing the really struck me was that she wasn't pushy like other agents. She let us make our choices and gave us good, honest advice without trying to push us to close on a particular property. Her advice on our bid was also spot on help us secure our house in a tight contest. Throughout the rest of the buying process she was very responsive to any questions and in following up with sellers/attorneys/advise and recommendations on services for home improvements. Overall I felt very comfortable with her suggestions knowing that I was dealing with a person of great integrity. I would highly recommend her services to any home buyer”
