"We listed our home in Mineral, California with Joe in May of this year. He was very honest in telling us that homes in Mineral do not sell quickly or often. He said it was a bit out of the Lake Almanor/Chester area that is his expertise, but he would work as had as possible to get our property sold before winter began. Good to his word, our property was sold and the new owners had the keys in hand in early September. That is amazingly quick for the Mineral area. We are thrilled."
