“When it came time for my brother and me to sell our mother’s long-time home in Windsor Square, there was really no question about who we would choose to represent us. We interviewed 5 leading agents and in the end we felt Joseph’s response differed in that his seemed the most realistic, and he provided a thoughtful detailed approach on how to get the home ready for sale. Joseph had helped our family years before on what was a difficult sale during the recession and during that time we developed a high level of trust.What stood out about Joseph then and now was his calm yet confident manner and his genuine enthusiasm for the process.
Throughout the listing and sales process Joseph worked closely with us and with our contractor in readying the house for sale, from consulting and making recommendations on all renovation work and staging, supervising all photography, and later he personally organized and conducted all appointments and showings.Even though the process was interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic, in a matter of weeks, the place was transformed and ready to sell. Joseph provided regular communication including buyer remarks and ongoing marketing and sales strategies all of which resulted in multiple over asking offers. Near the end when the transaction became stressful due to the Buyer’s difficulties with his lender, Joseph’s regular communication with all parties, including the Buyer’s lender, reduced our anxieties and we were able to keep the sale on track.
Thanks to Joseph, we closed escrow in nearly a month for substantially more than our asking price.
Joseph Treves has earned our unconditional and highest recommendation.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Treves in representing me in the purchase of a seven figure residential property in Los Angeles. I would sincerely recommend, endorse, support and otherwise strongly suggest that you could not find a better representative to sell or acquire property than Mr. Treves.
“As a professional real-estate trustee managing over 500,000 square feet of commercial property in Southern California, I receive in excess of 10-phone calls a day from real-estate brokers.
“Mr. Treves stands out over all of them, as he always places his client’s interest above his own, is an excellent and professional communicator, is a seasoned diplomat and knows when is the right time to assert the interest of his client should it be warranted.
“When you consider what is at stake when you seek in prevailing to sell or acquire a property in the dynamic California market, Mr. Treves is not only a valuable member of the team, he is the team to get the job done.
“I would choose Joseph for my next transaction should the opportunity arise.
“You should consider the same.”
“I wanted to write to you with our deepest thanks for your superb work in all aspects of the sale of our home on Wade Street.
“From the beginning, you provided clear guidance on the process for preparing our home for sale, the key priorities for sharpening its appearance, and the best ways for setting a price point that would be both good for us and realistic.
“Along each step of the way, you were available to us, you provided sound advice, and you were good at giving perspective when the many tasks seemed vexing. In addition, your referral to our realtor in Carlsbad provided us with a first rate professional who managed to guide us to a home that we are already enjoying.
“In the final stages of the sale, working with the bids, working with the different questions and last decisions, you were again consistently available with good counsel and good humor and support.
“We will miss many aspects of our lives in Mar Vista, not least seeing you at the Farmers Market, and on Venice Blvd. We will always value and appreciate your work with us the past six months and hope to welcome you to our new home soon.”

“Your insight and knowledge were invaluable…”
Ardice Faoro, Los Angeles
“Joseph was exceedingly thoughtful, patient, and dedicated, and he represented and advocated for us with great focus and care. He was always available to discuss our concerns and answer our questions, either over the phone or in person, and was very “present” for us throughout the entire process. When we needed guidance on how to counter in a fast-moving, multi-offer scenario, Joseph gave us heartfelt, insightful, and ultimately successful advice. Joseph is a wonderfully friendly, sincere, down-to-earth, reliable, and intelligent Realtor whom I would recommend to my closest family and friends. My husband and I feel that he went above and beyond our expectations, and we are very happy to have worked with him.”
“As a developer I have used several real estate agents and Joseph is the best of the bunch.”
John Scharff, Mar Vista
“Your efforts were above and beyond the call of duty…”
Keith Massel, Santa Barbara
“The learning curve to understand the real estate process could be daunting. Not so, if you have Joseph Treves working with you regarding your real estate needs. He helped us understand the process from the time of pre-marketing the house to putting the house on the market and what all that entails. He has helped us understand the escrow process and has advocated for us when needed in that area. He was very patient with our questions and various emails and phone calls. He was an advocate for the needs of my father, while also being fair to the buyer’s needs, making it a win-win situation. My dad’s house sold in less than a week after being put on the market. The house had 11 offers, most were above the price that was being asked. Joseph knew how to price the house in the current real estate climate. His kindness, educator-style approach along with his professional knowledge of the real estate market and fairness to all parties were winning combinations.”
