They suggested a realistic (not inflated) price range. They are professional, fun, and very knowledgeable about real estate and the local market.
They excelled at negotiating! We were ecstatic with the price they achieved and the short timeframe it took to sell our home.

We used Joe and the team from McDonald Upton to sell our property in Essendon.
From the very beginning, Joe showed us that he had a very comprehensive knowledge of the local real estate market. There were no wild promises and no over-inflated expectations. Joe helped to tailor a sale campaign which suited our requirements perfectly and would subsequently produce a great result for us. He was always punctual, returned our calls and kept us fully informed at every stage of the campaign.
His timing of the market and his knowledge of his buyers produced a final result which was way
beyond our expectations.
We would use Joe as our real estate agent again and we have no
hesitation in recommending Joe as a complete professional with the utmost integrity.

416 Buckley Street

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.

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.

Absolute Pro!
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
