Listing in Lake Ridge, VA Claire H.
Joe and Armando made what would have been an extremely stressful process incredibly smooth and successful. I am thankful to have had their guidance from the start, with their knowledge of the market and sales techniques gaining us a successful offer beyond what we could have imagined. Armando's hands-on assistance getting our home ready to sell, along with Joe's calming demeanor made them an excellent team to work with. Both brought experience and knowledge to the table that was invaluable. They are truly the best to work with and I cannot recommend them enough!

Working with Joe and Armando was fantastic! Joe was extremely helpful, informative & supportive through the entire process. He answered all of my questions & explained the concepts of home buying that I was unsure about & was always available to speak to me/keep me updated on how the process was going. I always felt like he was looking out for my best interests & was always in my corner. He worked towards building a contract that catered to my needs and made sure that I was getting the best deal possible.
Armando was a fantastic help when showing me homes, he walked through and answered all of my questions, offered me advice about solutions to common home issues & was always available to talk as well.

Listing in Manassas, VA Janice C.
Joe was recommended to me by one of my neighbors. I interviewed him as well as one other realtor. From the start, Joe’s approach to listing our house and meeting the specific conditions we had in mind, combined with his knowledge and confidence in navigating the process during the pandemic, were just what we wanted. He kept us informed, gave us advice when we needed it, and took advantage of modern technologies to make our house look its best. It sold in one day! We highly recommend Joe. Many thanks for being there for us!
Listing in Burke, VA Brian and Janet D.
Joe Bare has been our agent for four moves to and from the Northern Virginia area since 2006. In 2006 Joe was assigned to us through the relocation company and ever since we’ve gone back to him for three more moves. Joe’s honesty, customer first attitude and easy-going demeanor has made it easy to look for a house or sell a house. If we could have had Joe help us in our moves to and from other areas of the country we would have.

Listing in Woodbridge, VA Billy and Ching D.
2020 was very challenging for everyone, especially, my family. We had a retirement and a move across country with two little ones and two dogs. Very stressful to say the least. To top it off, we had to sell our house in Virginia and buy a house in Colorado, all within a month. We knew as soon as we were possibly moving, we needed to contact you. You were so helpful with the purchase of our townhouse, we knew you’d be the person to go for selling. You were a tremendous help guiding us through all the process and making us feel important every step of the way. You treated us like we were family and we cannot thank you enough. I know we added the pressure with the short timeline but you took care of everything with so much kindness and knowledge. I guarantee if anyone we know in NOVA area that needs a realtor; we will recommend/insist they contact you. Again, thank you so much for making, what could have been a very stressful time, go as smoothly as it did. You’re THE BEST!
Listing and Purchase Dumfries, VA- Sean and Jamaciee F
I recently had the pleasure of working with Joe Bare when looking for my home. From day 1, Joe was extremely responsive and had great suggestions for selling my home based on local comps in the area. All throughout the negotiations and closing Joe was there quickly handling any issues that may have risen. If the time ever comes when I will be looking for a new home or selling, there isn't any question on who my Realtor will be!
Listing and Purchase Lorton, VA- Adam and Erica V
Working with Joe has been amazing. We came to him on short notice, looking to both sell our existing home as well as purchase a new one. His guidance and assistance in preparing our home for sale resulted in us selling our home in less than 12 hours, and well above our asking price! He also proved invaluable in assisting us in purchasing our new home. We were able to get a fantastic home in a great location for the right price. In every way Joe has been the ideal real estate agent, and a wonderful person to work with. We absolutely recommend his services without reservation, you will not be disappointed!
Joe has been my realtor since 2006 and has reliably and competently represented me in numerous transactions, most recently in 2020. Joe always kept me informed at every step in the process and presented every decision I needed to make in clear terms. I always appreciated his dedication to client service and the ease with which I could always reach him by telephone, text, and email. I found Joe's experience and knowledge of the DMV market to be invaluable. Joe's a real pro and will get the job done for you too!
Purchase in Arlington, VA- Krupa P
Joe Bare has my highest recommendation. I just purchased my first home and was initially nervous as a first-time home owner — Joe, however, made the entire process easy and straightforward. He has been indispensable. Among many other reasons, this is why I recommend Joe:
1. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He has been in the real estate business in Northern Virginia for many years - and it shows. I purchased a condo in Arlington, and I was referred to Joe by a friend who has worked with him multiple times to buy and sell single family homes in other cities across Northern Virginia. He knows the specifics of every type of residence and is well-versed in the different localities across the area. He has also been doing this long enough that he knows common pitfalls and how to avoid them, how to effectively work with the people buying or selling from/to you in order to get you what you want, and just generally provides good advice.
2. As a first-time home owner, I literally knew nothing of the process to purchase a home. Joe knew this and went over everything in exquisite detail (multiple times) throughout the process. He went over every document with me line-by-line, explained everything, and answered all of my many questions with patience. He also recommended a mortgage lender, a home inspector, and a title company - and I had great experiences with everyone that he referred me to.
3. Joe is thorough and very proactive. He would send me listings that he knew I would be interested in minutes after they went on the market and scheduled appointments for me to go see the properties immediately - and in Northern Virginia’s competitive market, time is of the essence and this kind of urgency is necessary. After my offer was accepted, he stayed in constant contact with the home inspector, title company, and most importantly, my mortgage lender to ensure that everything necessary was taking place in a timely manner. This was extremely important - everyone has a busy life and there are so many details involved in buying or selling a home, that it is essential to have someone like Joe on your side taking care of everything. As organized as I think I am, even I forgot something once or twice and Joe immediately called to remind me to fill out a document, etc. He returns calls/emails/texts immediately and called me every couple days to check in and update me on where we were in the process and what the next steps were.
I would definitely work with Joe again. Choose Joe Bare - you will not regret it!”

It was an amazing experience working with Joe, especially during these trying times! He was super knowledgeable, and super attentive.

Purchase in Dumfries, VA - Felicia S.
I recently worked with Joe to purchase my first home and I was so fortunate to have his guidance. It was a new build and I had a lot of decisions to make. He helped me make decisions about the bathroom, closets, and hardwood floors. He also reviewed my home owners insurance policy and helped proper me for closing, which he also attended. I will definitely be recommend Joe to family and friends, and if I end up selling my house in the future, I will be giving Joe a call!
Listing in Bealeton, VA- Mike and Edna B.
Looking back, we are amazed at everything that was accomplished leading up to the successful closing. Without your help, the additional burden of listing, marketing, showing, selling, inspecting, negotiating with buyers, and the final closing would have been impossible. We simply could not have done it without you. Thank you for your thorough and professional attention you patiently afforded us throughout the entire time from beginning to end.
Purchase in Reston, VA- Heidi C.
As a buyer on a very short time schedule (relocated to VA for a new job), I was grateful to find Joe Bare through recommendation by my mortgage broker. Joe snapped into action, made a list of properties for me to see, and with each one, listened carefully to what I liked and didn’t. In the end (which was really only a matter of weeks), we had toured about a dozen properties, all within a 2-mile radius of my new job. He gave good counsel throughout, pointing out information that was in my best interest to know. He made me feel like I was his only customer, though I later discovered he was working on closing a handful of deals at the same time. He did not pressure me to purchase more than I could comfortably afford. He was always professional, calm, cool, collected, and a pleasure to work with. He was highly accessible to me, via text, phone, and email. I absolutely love my new home, but if I had to find another, I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Joe again.
Listing and Purchase in Woodbridge, VA- Casey and Cecelia C.
Joe Bare helped my wife and I sell our single-family home in Lake Ridge, Virginia and purchase a condominium in Belmont Bay. His support, guidance, and insight proved to be exceptional and indispensable throughout the selling and buying process. Joe's desire and willingness to fully understand our challenges and needs, and then apply this understanding throughout the process made our entire experience nothing less than exceptional. We wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone seeking a highly knowledgeable, resourceful, trustworthy, and compassionate real estate agent.
Listing in Vienna, VA- Barbara K.
I enlisted Joe as the Realtor for the sale of my home and was so glad I did. From the beginning of the process and throughout the sale, Joe demonstrated his attention to detail, experience, and professionalism. He was always quick to respond and was on top of what needed to be done. Joe is so likable and friendly, but assertive at the right times. He will go to bat for you before, during, and even after the sale. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Joe.
Listing and Purchase in Dumfries, VA- Frank and Myriam A.
Joe was with us for the better part of a year and then some as we began the home purchasing journey in 2016. When things didn’t work out as we’d hoped, we redirected our attention to 2017.
From jump, we knew we had the right realtor for this task. Joe was informative when things weren’t clear to us and kept us involved every step of the way, even the smallest of details happening behind the scenes. When we had questions, he had the answers and guided us through the tedious process.
We always felt comfortable that we were in good hands and the house that we really wanted was the house that we ended up getting. Much of this was made easier to navigate through due to Joe’s efforts and limitless perseverance. We cannot thank him enough for everything that he did for us.
Thanks again Joe!

Joe Bare is not only our Realtor, but a friend who helped us find the perfect home and fulfill both of our needs.

We could not ask for a better Realtor and would recommend Joe to anyone.
Buyers in Woodbridge, VA- Crystal and Shane A.
We have known Joe since 2010, as we were renters and new to Lake Ridge. After three years, we decided to buy. There was no doubt in my mind whom my husband and I would go to for the purchase of our first home and who we knew would take care of us throughout the entire process. I was not willing to move out of Lake Ridge and Joe was completely up for the challenge. We began looking around the Lake Ridge area and within a very short period we found our home! As a first-time home buyer it was scary, but having Joe as our Realtor put us at ease. He was with us every step of the way. The knowledge and professionalism that Joe displays goes beyond what I could have asked for. He treats you as if you are a part of his family. He truly cares for each of his clients and that was evident throughout the entire process. He also taught my husband and I so much throughout the process of purchasing a home and we will ensure to refer Joe Bare to our friends or anyone else. Thank you Joe so much!
