Helped to make the often stressful process of buying a new home a breeze.
During our search for a new home, we found Joe’s knowledge of the Athens real estate market to be great. He listened to our goals and wants, then helped us refine our search to find a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. His insight into areas such as location, market trends, and home design allowed us to look past the marketing hype to find the “needle in the haystack” that best fit our needs and wants.

The end result was a beautiful home in an area we never thought we’d be able to afford.
Finding Joe (thanks to reviews like this) was the single best thing that could have happened to us in our search for a new home and sale of our previous home. I can’t recommend him highly enough. His expertise in the Athens market, knowledge of the area, and contacts with housing professionals were absolutely invaluable to us as we negotiated with the seller and embarked on a major renovation. The end result was a beautiful home in an area we never thought we’d be able to afford.
It was truly a pleasure to work with Joe.
Joe helped us find our house after a very long search. My wife and I worked with several agents and Joe’s knowledge, honesty, and work ethic far surpassed every other agent we worked with.
I couldn’t imagine going through this process with anyone else.
Hiring Joe P (as everyone seems to refer to him as) was probably the best thing we did when buying our house. We had just moved to town and didn’t know any real estate agents, so we figured we would look at a couple houses and talk with the listing agents. Out of those Joe P was by far the best.
Highly recommended!!!!!!
Joe is an outstanding agent!!! We were purchasing a house remotely. He took care about everything. He made a process very easy. Very easy to communicate with. Understood our needs. Was able to organize house hunting visit the way we were able to see dozen houses in 2 days. Highly recommended!!!!!!
Buying, selling, market analysis, you name it, he can do it.
Joe has sold 2 properties for me and I have 2 more listed with him. Wouldn’t consider going with anyone else. He gives me honest, straight forward advice based on his extensive knowledge of Real Estate negotiations and always has the right answer to my questions.

We had just moved to town and didn’t know any real estate agents, so we figured we would look at a couple houses and talk with the listing agents. Out of those Joe P was by far the best. He got to know us and basically what we were looking for. We had 9 things on our “wish list” for our future house but, apparently, that was a tough combination of things. This is where Joe really shined. We would send him house we’d find online but we never saw most of them.
Highly professional yet personable.
Let me start out by saying that I don't write reviews. Ever. There's just not enough time. Having said that, I feel compelled to write a review of Joe and his Nabo team because of the outstanding experiences we had with them in both selling our previous house and buying our current one. Hands down, Joe was the best Realtor we have ever worked with, and I will be recommending him to family, friends, and colleagues who are looking to buy/sell a house in the Athens/Oconee area. Joe is: a straight shooter, someone whose advice and opinion you can trust; very knowledgeable about the Athens real estate market extremely responsive and a very clear communicator; someone who listens to each individual's needs and desires; highly professional yet personable.
Joe P. is knowledgeable, professional, and insightful.
We have purchased several houses with Joe P. at Nabo Realty and have been highly impressed and satisfied each time! Joe P. is knowledgeable, professional, and insightful. We have appreciated the time he has taken to understand what we are looking for, advise us, and guide us through each step of the process.
He and his team were very responsive to our needs and provided great support.
Joe helped us sell our home in Boulevard from several states away during the COVID pandemic. He and his team were very responsive to our needs and provided great support. He coordinated with our landscaper to present the house in the best light and managed the logistics of getting cleaners and workmen in as needed to handle issues that arose that would otherwise have required us to return. He and his team also helped us to have realistic expectations going in and to navigate the process and paperwork, including negotiating with potential buyers. Highly recommended.
Unbelievably incredible experience!
Unbelievably incredible experience! My mom had to be moved into a personal care very quickly due to health issues. Joe had the home listed immediately and under contract in less than ONE WEEK! He and Stephanie handled all the details from inspections, to cleaning, etc. and were very accommodating and made a very quick and difficult move (during the pandemic) seamless. I would hands down recommend Joe to anyone looking to sell a home!
Joe and his team are nothing short of amazing!
Joe and his team are nothing short of amazing! He helped us buy a house on the other side of the country in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. We weren't able to be there for the many phases of the buying process but Joe took care of everything for us. He even made sure we had lawn care set up til we arrived. This could have been an incredibly stressful process for us but it really wasn't! We would without a doubt hire Joe again for home buying/selling needs.
Best agent ever.
Best agent ever. Very experienced. Professionally handled all negotiations.. Very honest and trustworthy. Showed us sooooooooo many houses. Very patient. Will use again and again and again.
Stephanie made the difficult process of selling my home pain free.
Stephanie is extremely knowledgeable of the Athens area market. I highly recommend her to find your dream home or sell your home for top dollar. She not only negotiated a great price for my home, she did it in five weeks saving me additional mortgage payments on a home I was not living in. Stephanie has excellent people skills and was lovely to work with. She is also a trouble shooter going above and beyond finding an amazing photographer to shoot my home and a dependable landscaper. Her real estate agency Nabo is a friendly welcoming place with many qualified professionals to attend to your needs. Bottom line Stephanie made the difficult process of selling my home pain free and I made quite a bit more than I thought on the sale.
If I could have given 6 stars I would have.
Stephanie was very professional and assuring as we went through the sale of our home of 24 years. Stephanie was very prompt with emails, text and phone calls in communicating with us. Stephanie acted as our advocate through the process really representing our interest and not just what would lead to a sale. Her advice and counsel through the process allowed my wife and I to focus on what we needed to and not worry about how the sale was going. If I could have given 6 stars I would have.
Very proactive with overseeing my properties.
Briggs is a true professional. He has been my property manager for going on 10 years. He is extremely responsive and timely with his communications. Briggs is very proactive with overseeing my properties and will advise me in advance of concerns related to maintenance and upkeep, which is critical for a real estate investor. As an Athens resident for almost 30 years, Briggs has good relationships with service providers that can handle all your property needs at a price I am confident I would not receive!! I strongly recommend Briggs as your property manager.
Honest, excellent advice.
I have had the pleasure of working with Briggs Carney for over 7 years. During this time he has assisted me with acquiring, selling and managing my investment properties in Athens. His real estate expertise and familiarity with the different areas is a huge advantage. He listens and provides honest, excellent advice based his extensive professional experience. I have also retained Briggs' property management services to manage my investment properties, from screening and getting tenants, to providing and scheduling quality, honest and reliable contractors and service crews for repairs and remodeling jobs. I can depend on him knowing he has all the right resources. I would definitely highly recommend Briggs without hesitation to anyone looking to purchase, sell or manage their properties in Athens.
Helped us find the home of our dreams.
Briggs is a consummate professional, knows the local market as well as anyone and works hard for his clients. As the start of our home-buying process, we were wary of the competitive Athens real estate market. But Briggs demonstrated a keen understanding of the intricacies and challenges of buying in Athens, and made it all far easier than we had expected. Briggs helped us find the home of our dreams!
I highly recommend her to be everyone's agent and friend!
Selling a home can be overwhelming, but from day one Joanne made it easy for me while tackling the difficult stuff herself. From the day we put the house on the market, she had it under contract in 24 hours, at listing price!! Never did I think it would be that easy. Drama in everyday life can step in, but Joanne keeps it light and breezy. She also helped me buy a home that had the worlds worst seller! But a perfect house! To this day I'm certain she never told me all she had to bare to get that house for me. I highly recommend her to be everyone's agent and friend!
Helped us find our dream home!
Wow...what an amazing experience we had with Joanne. She took us step by step through the selling and buying process. Took amazing photos of our home and sold our house with multiple offers within eight days of being on the market and for full asking price. Joanne was always available anytime I had a question or concern and soothed my nerves through the process. She also helped us find our dream home and the buying process was so easy. Joanne has a great eye for detail and is absolutely one of the beat in her field. I highly recommend her and will differently use her for our next selling and buying experience. Thank you Joanne! You are the best.
We absolutely felt at all times that we were in the most capable hands
My husband, Lee and I recently worked with Sarah on purchasing a house in Greensboro, GA. Sarah was truly a joy to work with, so much so we now consider her a friend! This was our 5th home purchase and by far our best experience because of how Sarah navigated us through the process. Her knowledge about real estate and the in’s and out’s of how to successfully negotiate an agreement with the sellers was top-notch. She is incredibly quick with answering questions, and trust me we asked a lot of them. If she didn’t know the answer, she knew exactly who to ask to get it. She communicated with our mortgage lender, closing attorney and selling agent to make sure we closed on time and with no stress. We absolutely felt at all times that we were in the most capable hands with Sarah. We highly recommend her and Nabo Realty!‍
I highly recommend that you select Sarah Butler as your real estate broker.
Recently, I worked with Sarah Butler on two separate real estate transactions, one as a seller and the other as a buyer. Because of Sarah’s extensive knowledge of the local real estate market, experience with each step of the process, patience, excellent communication skills, attention to details, and commitment to customer service, both transactions proceeded uneventfully and closed as scheduled. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a person with significant experience, I highly recommend that you select Sarah Butler as your real estate broker.
Very responsive to our questions and goals as buyers and an excellent guide for us.
I am writing to share a client testimonial for our prior realtor, Sarah Butler. We purchased our home in 2019, and were so pleased with her as a realtor! Sarah was incredibly helpful in home-buying process. She had excellent working knowledge of the area and the market! Sarah was punctual, flexible, and always so considerate of our time. During our search, our preferences and priorities for location were still developing. Sarah was very responsive to our questions and goals as buyers and an excellent guide for us. We will definitely recommend Sarah to any friends looking for an excellent realtor!
