Highly likely to recommend 06/15/2016 - Sold a Single Family home in 2015 in Plainfield, NJ.

Joe Burris is the consummate professional, with detailed, specific knowledge in so many areas. My house sale required specific expertise that Joe provided. The sale involved a buyer who also had specific challenges and demands, which Joe and his team took proactive measures to help me meet (I was already moved out and living in Florida). He kept me informed every step along the way. When I needed any third party work done, Joe knew someone - from selling the contents of my home, assisting with finding legal help, to making handyman repairs - without Joe Burris I could not have sold the house. THANKS JOE!


Highly likely to recommend 10/04/2017 - Sold a Single Family home in 2017 in Plainfield, NJ.

You cannot find a better person to sell your house than Joe Burris! I cannot stress enough how outstanding of a job he did throughout the entire process. We only had 30 days to close our house and Joe helped us through the entire complicated process quickly and went sooooooo far above and beyond what I would expect from a real-estate agent. We had to remove a decommissioned oil tank from our yard, and it would have taken three times as long without Joe's expertise. He even went down to city hall personally to help facilitate the permit process with the township. Joe's marketing is just outstanding, as he sold our house for basically a full offer in less than a week. Trust me when I tell you that you won't regret the decision of working with Joe Burris!

I certainly made a great choice and would not have gone with anyone else to sell my home. Joe is a TRUE PROFESSIONAL and a joy to work with.

Highly likely to recommend 07/06/2016 - Bought a home in 2016.

I would recommend Joe to any one looking to buy a house, especially in a difficult market. When we first started working with Joe, there was nothing for sale in the area we were looking. Joe took it upon himself to track down any and all sellers who might be interested in selling. He managed to find a seller and walked us through a very smooth process from start to finish. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about the market and the complexities that go into buying a home, and is incredibly responsive to any and all questions and concerns along the way. We are thrilled with our new home and will definitely reach out to Joe if we are ever looking to buy or sell in the future.

Highly likely to recommend 10/02/2017 - Bought a Multi Family home in 2017 in Hillsborough, NJ.

I was in talks with multiple realtors when I started my initial search for a home. Joe quickly differentiated himself from the rest by establishing a credible, genuine, informative, and timely reputation. All of the previous realtors I worked with tried to tell me what I wanted in a home, Joe took the time to understand my needs and worked late hours scheduling visits to listings that suited them. His expertise in real estate coupled with a thorough understanding of the process made my buying experience wonderful. Everyone at Sleepy Hollow treats you with the utmost respect and all work ardently to ensure you have all the resources you need in finding your dream home. I couldn't be happier with the support Joe and his team provided me and encourage anyone interested in buying/selling to use Sleepy Hollow Realty.

Joe knows the Plainfield market. His assessment of market value of our home was spot on and saved us much time in the long run.
