Chief Joe is a home buyer's dream realtor! He didn't push, persuade,
or try to convince us to make a decision. He fully understood that this was one of the biggest
financial decisions we would ever make. We told him what we were looking for, and he started his
search. We received a listing of homes daily, and sometimes we wanted to see all of them. He took
us to countless properties, and never tried to influence us. He did tell us when the property was
priced too high or if it had significant damage.
We would spot properties while driving, write down the address,
and he would take us to view them. There was never a time we would call that he did not
answer or return our calls within the hour. He helped us in every way possible,
securing the loan, inspections, insurance etc. This man does not stop (even after closing)!
We used his trailer to move our entire house, and he helped us to find the lawn equipment needed
to maintain our property. This is our second home, and I have never had a realtor so involved,
and concerned about our happiness.
We can say it honestly and proudly that is was because of Chief Joe that we found our dream home,
and not only did we find a great realtor we now have a great friend.
Thanks Joe! The Brisco's
As a first time home buyer and new to the Gulfport area I was introduced to Chief Joe through work. I had in my mind what I was looking for in my first home and Joe came through all the way from the get go. He was very honest throughout the whole process giving me the ups and downs of purchasing and also with his points of contacts it made this experience very easy and smooth. I would recommend Joe to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home here on the gulf coast he is a professional and he knows how to get the job done. Thanks again for everything you did Joe and I wish you best in your success.

Chief Joe and Caroline are the BEST!!! We had our home listed with another realtor for almost a year, with little activity and lots of disappointment. This was our first home and as first time sellers we were very nervous. I was deployed at the time and my wife and I were both very frustrated with the whole sales process. Luckily, I was referred to Chief Joe through a friend. He met with my wife and the house was listed with more motivation in the first few weeks than I could have ever expected. Chief Joe was great by communicating with me via email and he even helped my wife by cleaning the gutters in the front. Thanks Joe!! Long story short these two did EVERYTHING the right way and with the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommend Chief Joe and Caroline to any military or civilian looking to buy or sale. Joe and Caroline are a great team, and we could never thank them enough for everything they did to help us! Thanks

My name is Phillip M. Bennett and would like to write a bit of a testimonial about the recent sale of our home. About 7 months ago me and my wife were grappling with the prospect of either selling our home or renting it out due to us transferring out of the area. I have known Joe Amadeo for years and have heard what a great job he has done for other military folks in the sale of there homes. I decided to call him up an asked him if we could sit down and discuss selling our house. I have to say that the level of active involvement was nothing short of phenomenal. From our very 1st meeting Joe and his associate Ms. Caroline Getter took what is typically a difficult and very stressful situation and made it very manageable for the both of us. They explained every aspect of the process and were very proactive and aggressive in getting our home sold. Joe was in the Navy and is a Retired Chief who understand the unique stresses military families go through. Additionally Caroline was a God Send who exemplifies professional who gives 110% for her clients. After only being on the market for about 2 days we had an offer and had it sold within a month. There is no doubt, that had I chosen to go through another realtor we would not have been near as happy with the level of dedicated service that we received from Joe and Caroline. I am extremely pleased with the job they did and would highly recommend them to anyone needing to buy or sell a home.
Thank You Joe and Caroline!!

Joe, Thank you so much for all the guidance and advice that you have given us throughout this process. We are so lucky to have found you. Thank you for making this such an enjoyable process. We can’t wait to celebrate with you at our parties!
Joe, There aren’t enough words to thank you for all you’ve done! You have gone way above and beyond the “call of duty” and your passion for your occupation lets us know that this is more than just a job to you. You have given us confidence, faith and a wealth of knowledge about the process. You have been instrumental in making our dreams come true, and for that we shall be forever grateful.
As first-time home buyers, we had no idea what we were doing. We were recommended through a fellow Seabee to give Joe a call. We could not have asked for a better realtor. He was quick to respond to our initial call and had us looking at homes right away. He was there through every step helping us find the right home for our family. We felt that this experience was not only important to us, but to Joe as well. We feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with a realtor who cares about his clients. We highly recommend Joe to anyone seriously looking to buy a home.

Chief Joe and his partner Caroline were a real pleasure to work with. I approached him one day to list my house since I was transferring out of the area on short notice. The same day I spoke with him, he and Caroline came to look at our property and the neighborhood. The very next day our house was listed on every imaginable real-estate website on the internet complete with a virtual tour as well as a sign and flyers in the front yard. It is obvious that Joe takes a lot of pride in what he does and he is very passionate about it. He was very patient walking us through all the steps since we were first time sellers and gave good honest advice throughout the process. He scheduled several open-houses getting realtors throughout the Gulf Coast eyes on our property which intern made for a lot more showings. Joe was always available to help with anything we needed (he even helped me install a new patio door before going to closing). He was able to turn our short notice sell into a very profitable investment during a less than favorable housing market. With Joe being a retired Navy Chief and still working for the Navy it goes without saying that he still has connections all over the globe. If you are out of the area and moving to the gulf coast, contact Joe in advance and he will start working his magic before you even get there. One of the greatest things about working with him is that he communicates effectively and often, giving immediate feedback after viewings rather than leaving you wondering how it went. If you are interested in buying or selling Chief Joe is your man. When you want something done right “Ask The Chief”.

Our experience with Caroline and Joe was great. They were helpful and knowledgeable about the current market. They provided excellent service and looked out for our needs. They worked hard to sell our home and I would definitely recommend them to others selling or buying a home. We enjoyed working with them and appreciate all they did for us.

Joe Amadeo is one Real Estate Agent that you can count on for a fast sale and a fair price. In less than 1 month of my entire family transferring
overseas, Joe quickly placed my house on the market and managed to lock on a
sales contract before we had to fly out. Not only was Joe able to execute
this short-fused sale, he did so while still getting my asking price.
Within days of contacting Joe, our house was listed and widely advertised
while he enthusiastically worked with his network of agents. He actually
showed our home to at least one potential buyer per day. On more than one
occasion, he had arranged to show our home to as many as two and three
perspective buyers; one potential buyer would literally pull away as the
next would pull up. His relentless drive to move our home was truly
amazing; more than I could have ever expected... from any Realtor.
Even after departing the country Joe flawlessly handled every issue that
was required to seal the deal. He arranged and expedited service contracts
to meet several new demands that were placed on me by the buyer. He also
overcame many contractual complications with little to no effort on my part.
Joe simply kept me informed every step of the way as he executed the sale of
our home, from listing, to cash in my bank in less than 8 weeks!
I highly recommend "Chief Joe" to anyone who is considering buying or
selling real estate in his area. I will definitely be contacting him when I
return. His service is phenomenal!"
Master Chief Scott Morris
Joe provided outstanding service as my real estate agent. After trying to sell my house myself for over 6 months, he took control of the sale and had it under contract within two months. After the home inspection was complete he arranged for the repairs to be completed and recommended good contractors to accomplish the work. This was very beneficial since I was not located in Gulfport for the sale. Overall this was the best experience I have had with any real estate transaction.

I decided to list my home with Joe and Caroline because one of my co workers CE2 Sullivan referred them to me. I knew Joe from my old Battalion, NMCB 133. When Joe and Caroline listed my home, they told me what I needed to do to sell my home quickly. He had his partner Caroline do a visual tour of my home. I thought that was a great tool. They advertised it on TV and Joe used his SEABEE connections to market it even more. It went from listing to closing in 10 weeks! If I know anyone who is looking for a home or selling one I’m going to tell them to go to http://www.chiefjoe.com/

My home had been listed for six months with a well established local Broker. The level of service fell far short of expectations and was very disappointing. Communication was exceedingly poor, the agent was rarely available and viewings were meager.
In May, I changed my listing agent to Chief Joseph Amadeo. From the outset I was impressed with his high level of professionalism and competence. Interest in the my house and the number of viewings increased dramatically within the first two weeks. Joe was in constant communication, providing support and guidance through the entire sales process.
The sale of the house was completed within 10 weeks of listing, a testament to Chief Joe’s exemplary level of commitment, expertise and service.

I was stationed at the Seabee Base here in Gulfport Mississippi about 2 years ago. I called Joe, and he walked me and my wife through the whole home buying process. I picked him because he was retired navy and I thought he would be the right choice, and he was. At 20 years old my wife and I purchased our first home.
BU3 Jeff and Kirsten Speicher
I listed my home with Joe, I knew he would be straight with me because he is a fellow chief. In two weeks I had a contract on my home in the Northwood Hills Subdivision in Gulfport. It went to closing and I actually got $4200 dollars more than the appraised value.
Chief John Hagerty, USN (ret)
I called Joe because I new he was retired Navy. He was respectful, Knowledgeable and walked me through the process of buying a home.
He took the time to explain everything to me because I was a first time home buyer. I purchased my first home at 22 years old.
BU3 Steve Archibald
Joe Amadeo is an outstanding REALTOR, his strict attention to detail and his ability to understand the needs of his customers allowed him to find the perfect home for me and my family. He made this evolution fun and exciting all the while adding his personal touch to the situation allowing me to learn how to properly purchase a house as a first time buyer. He would be my sole recommendation for anyone purchasing their first home.
SW1 Chris Sterner
My home buying experience with Coldwell Banker was quite an enlightening experience. I had more than just a few reservations about the process and was quickly steering me away from being a home owner. Then I met Joe Amadeo; a retired Navy Chief who has made a successful venture into the real estate world. Mr. Amadeo was extremely honest and forthcoming about the home buying process. He was able to answer all my questions; therefore putting me at ease. Joe went out of his way to research and show me a wide variety of homes within my price range and he did it on my schedule. I would highly recommend Joe Amadeo and Coldwell Banker for your next home purchase.
BU1 (SCW) Waddell
Chief Amadeo worked wonders with the selling of our 30 year old family home. The home was in need of tender loving care and it took the right agent finding the right buyer. Joe Amadeo was that agent. He was relentless in his efforts, practiced remarkable time management, and genuinely cared about our (the sellers') concerns. He was definitely a blessing to our family and a remarkable guy. Thanks Joe for all your hard work and determination. You got it done.
