We have now bought and sold 8 houses, in 4 states and 2 countries. Joe and Carol use something we rarely see in realtors - their EARS! They actually listened to what we said. We met Carol just by dumb luck as we were doing the open house circuit one Sunday. We liked the house she was showing but didn’t love it. Without any hype or pressure she offered to help in any way she could to help us find what we were looking for…..even if we did not already know ourselves. A few emails and conversations with her and Joe later, we had a shortlist of features that they developed with us and then proceeded to put together lists of properties for us to look through and provide feedback. Our taste quickly became apparent and before we knew it, we had our shortlist of homes to see on our next scheduled house-hunting trip.
Joe and Carol could not have been better prepared, more accommodating or more gracious hosts for our otherwise stressful in and out trip. Everything from a full itinerary to a packed lunch was taken care of. We found the house we loved, and they then became tireless champions for us to make the process as hassle-free as possible. We got our house and will be spending Thanksgiving there with family and hope to see our new friends Joe and Carol when we are down there. I’m not in any hurry to buy again, but when I do, it will be with Joe and Carol.

Thank you Carol and Joe for your assistance in helping us find our new home. Your knowledge of the property and the surrounding area were invaluable. We really appreciate the care and thoughtfulness that you displayed throughout the entire process!

Joe and Carol were very helpful in selling our home and assisting with the purchase of our new home plus helping with the installation of our new pool and screen enclosure. Carol is a True Sales Lady......not only did she stage our home, she baked for all the open houses!! I have been in sales for 37 years back in Canada, and she is a rare find and wish she was part of my insurance team. For results…. you need the Carol/Joe TEAM.

I came to visit my friend who lived in the Reserve at Estero. During my visit I looked at several new communities and found a floor plan that I fell in love with. Carol and Joe were highly recommended from my friend, so I decided to call Carol to show me homes in the area for sale to get an idea what else was available. After spending a few hours looking and not finding a home I really liked, she told me of an open house she was having the next day which was the same floor plan I really liked. The home cost more than I was looking to spend but she wanted me to stop by to make sure she knew what I was looking for.
Well, it was exactly what I was looking for and I called my wife back home to let her know. Carol was great during the process, she never pushed or tried to persuade me to buy the home but instead was supportive and was extremely helpful. My wife and I flew back the following week and made an offer which was accepted. Carol and Joe were there for every question we had during the process up to closing. My wife and I highly recommended them if you are looking to sell or find your next dream home.

Carol and Joe are such a sweet couple, always trying to be helpful to others. Joe found me a perfect renter in such a short time and helped me through the whole process. I never dreamed to be a landlord. But with Joe’s help it has been very easy. Joe and Carol are always there to answer any questions I have and lead me to the right direction.

The first time we met Joe was at an Open House he was hosting last February in the Reserve at Estero. We had been looking for a house or condo in Bonita Springs/Naples/Estero area for years. We worked with many realtors with no success, but when we met Joe we just knew he was the right realtor for us to find our home. We felt so comfortable in The Reserve. He and Carol sent us information all winter and we found one that we loved. They went to bat for us negotiating and in the end we closed on our Reserve home in July.
Since they live in The Reserve they know the community. After we closed in July and through Irma they watched our house and sent pictures to keep us informed. It was so comforting to know and see that our home was good. If you want honest, hardworking people, Joe and Carol are the real deal. Carol is an amazing chef and baker as well.

Carol and Joe showed us a lot of properties in The Reserve and also in other communities. One thing they do that is over and above is give you all kinds of information about the places you look at as well as other places for sale and community information.
They were very patient with our many questions and even now continue to watch over our home during the recent hurricane. Since they live in The Reserve, they know a lot of the inner workings of the community and have helped us tremendously! I know you'll like them. And by the way Carol is a great baker! Her treats are yummy!

"If you are looking for a responsive, honest and hard-working Real Estate Team, look no further than Carol and Joe Matarazzo! It was a pleasure to list and sell our home with them. They kept us informed every step of the way and gave us honest feedback after all showings. Since they work as a team it was never a problem to reach them. If by chance a message was left, either Carol or Joe would respond almost immediately! We sold our home in under the timeframe that we would have expected based upon the market! We feel this was due to their connectivity with buyers and understanding what their needs were in a house. You will not be disappointed in the Carol and Joe Matarazzo Real Estate Team!!!"

You and Carol are the very bet at what you do. The most caring and generous in every way. Thank you for all that you did for us listing and selling our home in the Reserve at Estero. We got exactly what we wanted for our home and were happy we changed realtors to go with you when we did. Thank you.
George and Diane Butcher, 9085 Astonia Way, The Reserve at Estero
Carol and Joe had an open house every week until my home sold. Carol's persistence and never-ending energy and ideas on how to market my home, were the key to locating the right buyers. They worked with the buyers to get their mortgage approval, scheduled the home inspection and was there with me right up to the closing. In addition, they worked with the builder of my new home and coordinated the closing of both properties the same day. I would recommend Carol and Joe to anyone who looking for a hardworking, honest and caring real estate team.

Carol and Joe sold me a vacation home and an investment home plus a lot in Bonita Springs and are in the process of re-selling one of my properties. They are an amazing couple and thoroughly know the real estate business and the market in southwest Florida. I would recommend them to anyone looking for two professional, dedicated and knowledgeable agents.
