"Joan was totally committed to our sale and purchase. She was always available to tour the (many) condos we wanted to see. During the many frustrations we encountered in our sale of our house, she was always empathetic, reassuring, and wise in her counsel. Joan is exceptionally knowledgeable about the real estate conditions in this area. We recommend her with complete confidence and enthusiasm."
Richard Barickman (Bedford NY)
"Energetic, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, influential, persistent, charming, personable, honest, direct, and funny. Perfect. She was supportive, persistent and strong when the buyers insisted we had an oil tank buried in our yard (we didn?t) and kept wanting more tests to detect a non-existent oil tank. She helped us both sell our house and buy a condo and made both processes fun."
Joan Barickman (Bedford)
"I cannot say enough good things about Joan Keating. I have had many business dealings over the years with real estate brokers, both domestically and internationally, and Joan is by far near the very top of my list. Joan introduced me to Pound Ridge, NY and the surrounding area, and she went above and beyond with helping me get to know the area. Joan really should run a blog for the area, as she knows so much about the history of the town, she?s very knowledgeable with the town?s local council and administration, and bar-none?Joan just is a great real estate broker. There was never any delays with my various queries. If you need a broker in Westchester County, I highly recommend Joan Keating. She's the best."
Todd Interland (NY)
"Joan has a deep knowledge of the area and is very meticulous and straightforward in her dealings with people. Highly recommend. NOt only did she find us a house, she was very helpful in locating local tradespeople who could work on the various improvements to the property that we wanted to make"
Rebecca NY (South Salem)
"Joan Keating helped my family over a period of 3 years with approximately 5 million dollars in real estate transactions in Bedford, NY. She was the consummate professional, pleasant to work with, and has a wealth of knowledge that comes with her 20+ years experience in Westchester and Fairfield county real estate sales. She knows the area well and can help with any type of real estate transaction. When we first met I was surprised by her honesty in advising us to wait to sell until the market improved which gave us a net improvement of over 250k. More importantly her estimate of the value of our property was spot on. She then came up with a rental plan for a guest cottage on the property which she handled until it came time to sell that property and buy another. In the many years of buying and selling real estate in this area, we found Joan the most reliable expert in the area; we will use her again, and confidently refer her to everyone who needs a realtor.

"With an extremely slow and finicky market, Joan was diligent and never gave up in trying to find a buyer for our house. Once that buyer was found, Joan went above and beyond and helped both us and the buyer navigate through the selling process easily and smoothly. Joan knows the market and most importantly is extremely knowledgeable in the she covers. Unfortunately for us, we've moved out of the area so unless Joan wants to move to Savannah, we'll have to find a new agent for future buy/sell opportunities"

Joan Keating , Associate Broker “Intelligent and Informed Real Estate…. With a Smile”
"I have worked with a number of real estate agents over the years and Joan Keating is by far the best.
She is smart sensible and most importantly no nonsense, able to give actionable advice and counsel on all aspects of the area and market
She took our brief thoughtfully and responded with a series of properties that fit. In one instance she hadn't been able to prescreen the house, and when we drove up, took one look and said "I don't want to waste your time" and drove off (the house was empty, so it wasn't rude to do that).
Unlike many agents, Joan always feels like she's on your side, caring what's right for you, not seeing you as just her next commission check. Since we moved into the area two years ago, we have remained in contact and Joan has been able to recommend some very useful places - a wholesale nursery to name just one! The other day we bumped into Joan and her husband at a local car show, this event embodied what I was looking for by moving into the area, seeing familiar smiling faces at a small town event, and sharing a laugh."

"Being an architect, I can tell when an agent really understands the condition of a property or the feasibility of a suggested renovation. Joan is a 'straight shooter', and I can trust her judgment."
David Wilklow, North Salem, NY

"Joan Keating was competent, professional who guided me through this process in which there were many "hoops" to get through. Alex Marks as a co-agent was also very helpful and helped me resolve some issues."

"Adrienne reviewed Joan Keating, Associate Broker 09/11/2014 Helped me sell a home <br /> <br />Joan was the hardest working agent we have ever worked with. She went above and beyond the duties of a listing agent. We had moved out of town and she dealt with issues of a vacant house as if she were a property manager. Of course, she was not, but she took on this role and really took care of our house while we were away. I am so grateful to Joan and would hire her again in a heartbeat whether I was buying or selling."
"samantha c reviewed Joan Keating, Associate Broker 06/17/2013 Helped me buy a home <br /> <br />Joan was a pleasure to work with. She's a total pro ... knowledgeable, detail-oriented ... but what impressed us most was her dedication to helping us find a home we love. Thank you!"
"Joan Keating was simply phenomenal. We were out of town, and she handled everything in our absence."
