Joe Zucco is passionate about property. Channeling the fundamentals garnered from studying commerce at Deakin University and following a football injury that ensured his Saturdays were now (sadly) free, Joe began his career in Real Estate.
Joe, a St Bernard’s boy born and bred in the area, knows the North West of Melbourne like the back of his hand. McDonald Upton pride themselves on this type of geographic and demographic insight, cementing their position as the agency with the most credible local knowledge.
Joe’s strengths lie in his ability to both understand and service the needs of his clients. His natural and down to earth communication style combined with patience, honesty and humour, ensure positive and enduring connections, with repeat business accounting for ninety percent of client interactions. Recent sales in the area have been block busters, breaking suburb records previously held for many years, thereby reaffirming Joe’s reputation for having exceptional negotiation skills and an unwavering relationship with clients
His appreciation for the working operations of developers is forged from both professional and personal experience and Joe genuinely relishes the opportunity to build a wealth portfolio for his clients. Ever mindful of the trust placed in him, Joe handles every transaction with the upmost respect and priority.
Married to Natasha and having two young sons, Harry and Lachie, Joe is just as proactive and involved in his downtime; as an avid Collingwood supporter, an enthusiastic, if necessarily infrequent golfer, and keen VRC member.

I had been introduced to Joe a few years ago, from the day I met Joe I had an instant trust and felt comfortable, he says it how it is and does not play games. We put our trust in the right person and we will be forever grateful for Joe's hard work and commitment he showed in selling our home.

We are so grateful and we only have good things to say about Joe. He works very hard for his clients and you can see how passionate he is about every sale.

Great Agent, Professional and Exceed Expectations
We acted as Vendors Advocates for the sale of 416 Buckley Street Essendon West. The market has
had great growth recently but this was a remarkable achievement. Joe Zucco sold the home to the
current vendors in 2018 and was the preferred sales agent appointed by our vendors to sell their
home in April 2021. I've had the pleasure of dealing with Joe on several occasions when our clients
have sold and purchased property.
I must say that in my 21 years personal experience and being a second-generation real estate agent,
now 7 years as an independent Buyers and Vendors Advocate at Master Advocates, the experience
with Joe and his team was positive from start to finish. Joe achieved a great result well above the
vendors reserve price expectations! I would highly recommended Joe as an agent when selling your
property and I would be happy to be called on as a reference by word or in writing.

Once again, Joe's experience and professionalism, along with his honesty and genuine care for our families’ position, shone through in the marketing and sale of our investment property. From opens, to the auction, all the way through to the final sale price, Joe ensured we were taken care of throughout the whole process, always keeping us informed and treating us with complete respect.
On auction day, the team at McDonald Upton came through in spades, working seamlessly together and making a stressful moment in time, seem effortless.

53A Market Street
We have listed and bought multiple properties with Joe, the reason for this is we know we are looked after
from the beginning right through to the end.
Selling is and can be a very daunting, stressful and emotional time in your life, but with Joe and his expertise in Real Estate (and his compassion in understanding the emotion that comes with selling a family home), we are completely at ease and comfortable in the knowledge that he will do his utmost best for us, which he has proven time and time again.
He guides you from the beginning to the end and is upfront and completely honest from the beginning. Initially, our instinct told us he was genuine and that proved to be right.
We cannot recommend him highly enough.
Thank you for everything Joe.

one that we would highly recommend to other people.

Joe Zucco was a pleasure to do deal with. We were always greeted with a friendly smile and Joe always made himself available which was crucial for our sale as he was dealing with an overseas buyer.

I would absolutely use Joe again and I already highly recommend his services to friends and family. Thank you Joe for helping us complete one chapter and open the doors to the new.

104 Landells Road
Joe is the consummate professional when it comes to real estate.
Has plenty of experience in the game, but does it all with humility and style. Quickly builds great rapport with potential clients, and doesn't go in with the usual hard selling style which is a turnoff to many.
A more laidback style, but then willing and ready to roll up the sleeves at the right time to get the job done.
Fantastic combination with Simone, a duo I would strongly recommend for those looking to sell.
- Jessica and Michael in Pascoe Vale
