Whether you’re just arriving in San Francisco or have been in town for years, Joe Moore Jr. can be an invaluable resource while helping you buy or sell a home.

Joe is a fifth generation San Francisco native who has lived all over the City. Growing up in the City provided Joe with an intimate knowledge of San Francisco and its distinct neighborhoods. If you give Joe an intersection he can tell you the best place nearby to get a bite to eat, what Muni line will get you there, and where the secret parking spots are. It’s this in-depth knowledge of San Francisco, coupled with Joe’s thoughtfulness and thoroughness that make Joe an indispensable resource to his clients.

Joe comes from a sales and marketing background. Prior to starting a career in real estate, Joe was a successful marketing software sales leader at both a Fortune 500 company and 20 person startup. This experience exposed Joe to some of the best marketers and helped him create and develop unique and successful marketing strategies. Even while in software sales, Joe’s genuine interest in San Francisco real estate had him keeping his finger on the pulse of the market.

Joe attended Saint Ignatius College Preparatory before moving on to Georgetown University where he earned his bachelors degree while playing four years of college rugby. Joe is also an active member of the Olympic Club as well as the Guardsmen, a local non-profit dedicated to helping the at-risk youth of the Bay Area by raising money to send them to outdoor education programs and by providing them with scholarships to private schools in San Francisco.

Had an amazing, easy, and completely uneventful transaction with Joe and Joe senior! As a remote owner they took care of every detail and I trusted their eyes on my place and how to make it look its best. Great team!

Joe was instrumental in helping me find the perfect Condo in San Francisco. I had a large “checklist” of criteria needed for a Condo to fit my needs and Joe was constantly finding homes for sale that fit well. He knew exactly what questions to ask the realtors and which items to point out to me, a first time home buyer. Joe is extremely responsive and available and it was easy to work with him!

– Kevin Vaughan

Working with Joe was so easy - he was responsive, engaging and we were able to buy the house we really wanted, in a highly competitive Bay Area market. He knew of almost all the other sellers agents we came across and was able to provide some insight into their pricing strategies. Will definitely use him again when we need to buy/sell another house.

– Melanie Mitchell

Joe was an incredible asset as my wife and I shopped for our first home. He was consultative, honest and encouraging as we toured and evaluated homes, and transparent and communicative during the offer phase. We'll be sure to recommend Joe to family and friends in the future.

– Kevin B

Joe helped us buy our first home in Marin and navigate the complex and often intimidating process of buying a home in a competitive market during the coronavirus pandemic. Joe was always available (phone, text and Zoom!) for our questions and answered them thoughtfully and with incredible expertise. He was committed to keeping us informed and in the loop every step of the way, which helped quell our first-time-buyer fears. He listened attentively to what we were looking for and never put pressure on any of our decisions. We trusted Joe to help us navigate this enormous personal, financial and emotional decision, and would do it again in a heartbeat.

– Olivia Jovais and Kevin Burriss

Joe helped us navigate the complexity of buying our first home in San Francisco, and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Throughout our entire experience, Joe was consistently accessible by both phone and email, and responded promptly to our questions or concerns. From the very beginning, he took the time to learn what we were looking for, quickly followed up with several great suggestions, and helped us coordinate viewings. Joe’s deep knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market and connections with experts in financing and other aspects of home buying set him apart from the other agents we spoke with as we were beginning our search. We highly recommend Joe for anyone looking to buy a home in the City.

– Amy and Devin Smith

It has now been a month since we closed on our house in San Francisco, which has allowed me time to reflect on the process. What I thought was going to be a straightforward home purchase was quickly turned on its head by the developing pandemic. Joe’s knowledge of the San Francisco market, contacts in the lending world and salesmanship are the reasons we got the house and at a price we were happy with. Without Joe, I do not believe we would have closed in the current environment.

I owe a big thank you to the Moores for all their advice and expertise. With years of experience in the SF market, I trusted their insight and guidance on how to execute the sale of my studio condo. They knew exactly how to market and price the unit to attract the perfect buyer. Joe worked directly with my building manager and designer to coordinate staging; I was barely involved. He explained all paperwork, answered all questions, and was always available to meet in person or touch base via email, phone, or text. Joe did an excellent job creating the MLS listing and website, though it was not in use for very long. He listed it in the AM, showed the unit to an interested buyer at noon, and delivered me a great offer by that evening. Within less than 24 hours, Joe was able to seal the deal. Escrow went just as smoothly. Working with Joe was a pleasure and made the whole experience a very enjoyable one. The Moores are both professional and personable, seasoned and up-to-date with the current market. I’d highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great agent.

– Catherine Brown

Joe is simply the best. Being a first time homebuyer, there is so much to learn and wade through and Joe guided us seamlessly through every step. He is also just a delight to be around. We looked forward to our Sunday house scoutings where joe would teach us about foundations and new neighborhoods along the way. He had a way of making an otherwise stressful experience feel light and bright. We told Joe we wanted to a victorian on a hill in SF and he did just that––we feel lucky that we had such a positive experience and we know we'll be working with the Moores for years to come :).

I've worked with the Moore team through several transactions, and they check all the boxes for a great SF real estate team: - Connections: Through their network, the Joes get access to lots of off-market properties and first-look opportunities that afford their buyers an edge in this seller's market. - Market knowledge: From the seller perspective, the Joes did a great job pricing my unit to generate maximum interest & setting expectations for the ultimate sale price. On the buy side, they consistently predicted the offer price required to win. - Proactivity and attention to detail: The Joes are available around the clock, they did a great job preparing me for the process, and their understanding of my situation allowed them to proactively vet properties & recommend creative ideas.

– Justin Fibich

We had an incredible experience working with the Moores to sell our home in Cow Hollow. We were on a tight timeline to get our home sold after purchasing a new house and the Joes made it happen quickly and thoughtfully. They never missed one of our phone calls, responded to texts late at night and were proactive with us throughout the entire process. They are lifelong San Franciscans and it's clear they know this complicated real estate market inside and out. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

– Victoria and Michael Cella

The Moores did an amazing job selling our condo. Always responsive and available to speak or meet. Not only did they create meaningful demand, they exceeded our expectations in terms of timing and price. Would welcome working with them again and have already recommended them to several others.

– Michael Cella

My wife and I had an incredible experience with the Moores -- which is really saying something considering the market in San Francisco. They were thoughtful, well connected, and supportive throughout the process. Their long standing relationships created a very high touch feel, and culminated in landing our dream home prior to the property hitting the market. I would recommend them to anybody who is beginning to think about entering the market, or is looking for info or advice prior to doing so. World class people and experience!

– Dean Nacey

Joe was terrific every step of the way. We was attentive, well connected in the realtor community, and very professional. Selling your home can be very emotional, and Joe was honest and resourceful, and always available. It is obvious why he is one of the top realtors in San Francisco.

– Carol Henwood

Joe was professional, caring, and exceedingly competent. Joe handled the whole real estate transaction, from beginning to closing, (including challenges) with the utmost attention to detail and professional capability. Joe not only knows the intricacies of real estate, he is personable and always available to answer any questions or concerns. We could not be happier with our experience with Joe.

– Shirley O'Neil & Phyllis Lyons

As first time home buyers the process can be a bit daunting, but working with Joe and Joe was such a pleasure. Their knowledge of the market and the nuances of each home was invaluable. We trusted Joe and Joe throughout this big decision, and we love our new home. We could not have found it without them.

– Alison and Tim Donnally

Joe has helped, not just presented, us acquiring and selling a number of properties in San Francisco over the last twenty five years. He always has good market knowledge but also a great sense of strategy that has made us both a better buyer and seller. Most recently Joe and his son Joe Jr. represented us selling a Pacific Heights condo that we owned with our son. This turned out to more difficult than we thought because the market hit a negative inflection point just as the property was going on the market. There was lots of interest but no offers as buyers were waiting. Joe recommended we take the property off the for awhile. When we re-lisisted it we received multiple offers and it sold quickly for a very acceptable price.

– Robert Zerbst

Joe is the best. He listened to what we wanted and what we didn’t want right from beginning and never tried to show us or talk us into properties that we weren’t interested in. We never felt pressure from him in any circumstance. He was very on top of new properties that were about to come onto the market. Joe responded quickly to every email, text, and phone call. He was always able to answer our questions. We would highly recommend Joe to anyone!

– Melissa Jinaraj

The benefit of working with Joe is his deep knowledge of the ever changing SF real estate landscape. He navigated me through the process of selling and was super responsive to the many questions I had. He saved me money on staging by finding creative ways to use the existing furniture in the condo and beautifully marketed the place so that I barely even needed to have an open house. When offers came in, he presented them in a way that was easy to understand and easy to make a decision. Joe would be the first person I'd recommend to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

– Arthur Gross

Joe was incredibly attentive and supportive through our first time home buying process. He was responsive to all our questions (no matter how small) and made himself available to us all the time. We ended up finding a great home and could not have done it without Joe's expert knowledge and advise through each step of the process.

– Erin Skiffer

Joe recently represented me on the sale of a condominium in San Francisco. The whole process was very easy. I found Joe to be very forthright, knowledgable and responsive. Thanks Joe!
