Joni is outstanding in her knowledge of the real estate market. She is unfailingly attentive to those with whom she works and offers substantial experience, intelligence and willingness to work as hard as it takes to close a deal to the satisfaction of her clients.

Joni was a great advocate when I worked with her in 2021. She knows the market well and is really interested in finding her clients the right home. She’s not just in it for the sale. I highly recommend Joni to anyone looking in Westport.

Joni Usdan is the consummate professional. She makes herself available to her clients, she trouble shoots with you. Joni has a long list of professionals she can offer recommendations should your property need any work before it goes to market. In these Covid challenging times Joni worked hard to keep everyone safe and still have showings. When you work with Joni she brings to the table all her experience and her honesty and a very talented pool of people to draw from to bring your home to its best. Joni sees the potential and offers the solutions and marketing strategies and that’s how she gets you top dollar. You never have to chase her down, she checks in on you. Joni as a person is an absolute pleasure to work with and to know. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of the sale of my home. If you are serious about selling your home give Joni a call, you will not regret it.

My fiancé and I relocated across the country from another state to Connecticut in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic and decided to work with Joni in finding a new home after she was recommended to us. We were completely unfamiliar with the area and Joni instantly made us feel very welcomed and had deep local knowledge that only comes with years of experience. We also appreciated that she was very patient with us in our search and was not pushy, remaining objective but at the same time helpful. It is apparent that she has strong connections throughout the local community which are helpful. Joni works around the clock for her clients and was very responsive as well. Moving and looking for a house is never easy during normal times, let alone during a pandemic. Joni helped make the process feel as “normal” as possible and made a stressful time a lot easier to get through. We would definitely recommend Joni to others.

Joni is a fantastic agent! Her many years in the business have instilled in her an incredible database of real estate knowledge from every aspect of home buying and selling. She’s incredibly honest and straightforward. She listens and doesn’t push. I would highly recommend her and plan on using her again!

I want to let you know that you have an outstanding agent in Joni Usdan. I just completed a sale with her. I was the seller’s agent and she was the buyer’s agent in a dual agency at 1 Nutcracker Lane Westport, CT. This was an extremely complex deal. We worked very hard together to make this happen despite difficulties with both the buyer and seller. There were weeks of negotiations and very detailed issues that had to be resolved. Joni was always professional, courteous under pressure and knowledgeable. She is truly the best agent that I have ever worked with (and I have never said that about anyone else). I have been doing real estate deals since 1983, as an investor, homeowner, a realtor and now as a broker. She is so much of an asset to Coldwell Banker Residential and to your office. I am honored that she is an agent working for the same brokerage. She deserves accolades for her hard work! I just love her!

Thanks for listening!

Joni is exceptional! I’ve been talking about her and recommending her to everyone I know, for the past four years. She was simply amazing, high energy and very resourceful. She staged our house herself, bringing the necessary pieces to make it exceptionally attractive. She was 100% on our side, fighting for every dollar of our asking price. Thanks to her, we sold the house very quickly in a market where hardly anything was selling. The whole experience was smooth, well coordinated and easy.

Joni truly was a key resource relocating into the state. She knew the market, understood our needs and did everything to guide the search and purchase, including the local service providers. She continues to recommend places and answer our questions as we settle in.)

Joni worked with us every step of the way. Top rate professional. Always follows through.
Having bought and sold at least 6 homes in US and UK, we can confidently say Joni is the very best realtor, either side of the Atlantic.
She is also honest to a fault, kind caring and considerate

Joni’s advice, expertise and especially her resourcefulness were all terrific! And her recommendations were all right on point. We will always be grateful for all her help selling our house.

Joni did such an amazing job helping us find a new home. Not only is she knowledgeable about the local real estate market but she is very straightforward and guided us through the whole process. What impressed me most about her was her availability, no matter what time of day (even when she was traveling) she would get back to us quickly with whatever questions or doubts we had. We also appreciated the fact that she is not pushy and understood our family’s needs. Thanks again Joni!!

Joni worked so hard to get to know our family and our needs. She was always available and always willing to run and look at a new listing. We found the perfect house after a good amount of looking and always felt Joni was on our side. Just sent her an email thanking her for everything. Excerpt:

I just put the baby to bed and (husband) is reading to (older daughter) in the family room—we are so happy in our new house. Thank you for all of the work you did with us to help us find the perfect place. The neighborhood is lovely, kids around, and everyone is very friendly. My commute to work is AMAZING and the yard is so much fun—2 weeks ago we had a bounce house in the backyard for (older daughter’s) 4th birthday party.
We couldn’t be happier here. Thank you!

Joni is by far the hardest working and most reliable agent in Westport. She tries to make a very difficult and trying situation as easy as possible. Joni definitely works non stop for her sellers and probably buyers ( I am seller) and tries to get the most money possible. Since starting with Joni I absolutely feel that she is part of the family and will always consider her a great broker and now a friend.

In two words, simply exceptional.

Joni handled our listing perfectly. Her advice on preparing the house for sale was spot on, she was astute in her pricing advice, and she worked with other agents to make the deal happen. We got three great offers in a very tough market and sold for full price, and Joni was masterful in holding the deal together when things got tough. We recommend Joni without hesitation, and would readily use her again.

When we sold our home in Westport, we spent a lot of time finding the “right realtor” who had a strong understanding of the market and the results to prove it. Joni was our first choice by far, and she delivered – quickly. She has a passion for her business and we would recommend her every time!

When we decided to move to Connecticut, our knowledge of the area was very limited. We interviewed three real estate agents, and Joni was clearly the best choice. She knew the market and the homes in a way that the other agents didn’t. She took the time to listen to what we liked and didn’t like in each house that we saw. Throughout the negotiation process she provided insight and coaching that helped us to buy our home. We recommend Joni without reservation.

When we started to look for a house we had very specific requirements and unfortunately not an unlimited budget. Joni picked up very quickly on what we were looking for and helped us not to waste time in the very time consuming hunt for the right house. When after 5 years in the house we relocated to Europe, we went back to Joni, this time to help us sell the house. We got excellent help in planning and staging the house and as a result, we sold the house fast at a price we were happy about. Joni’s personal engagement makes the painful process of buying and selling a house easy and fun!!

Thanks hugely for all your help in not only finding a lovely home for us, but also making both of us feel so comfortable in the difficult process of moving into a new community.

Joni is our go-to-Realtor in Westport! We have done multiple deals (2 purchases, 2 sales, 2 corporate rental tenants) with Joni and would not have considered using anyone else. She provided such personal attention to us during the process, that it felt more like a family member as opposed to a realtor. Joni negotiated thousands of dollars of add-ons and upgrades on a new house that we purchased, many things we would never have even thought of, without adding a dollar to the price. On another house, her market savvy did not let us walk away from an investment opportunity at the beach and we are forever grateful for the return we got on that when we sold it. She even found us IDEAL long term and short term corporate tenants to rent the property and met our demands of us to wanting to carry the property for any amount of time! Her level of commitment during the sale process is unsurpassed. She was wonderful at making small changes or larger scale staging changes to make the house its most marketable. And her level of follow-up is the icing on the “Joni cake” – any possible contact you need to finalize, decorate, etc., she can provide! Thank you Joni, we love you and hope to see you again soon when we move back to Westport!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Joni Usdan on multiple transactions. Her integrity, experience and sage advice made for stress free negotiations and closings. I look forward to working with Joni in the future and would recommend her to anyone who appreciates knowledge and value.

In one 18-month period, we sold my house the first day at full price; bought another house that was a bear to close, then when I decided I needed something different, we sold it and found the perfect house by THE BEACH. I think when everything goes smoothly, a broker just has to know comparative prices, the temperature of the marketplace and every property available in a buyer’s range. But when we encountered many hiccups during these complicated and stressful transactions, your expertise in putting and holding the deals together, ability to get good and FAST service people, “street cred” with other brokers, attorneys, contractors, town officials, etc – all these were invaluable in getting the job done right. I hope I don’t move again any time soon, but if I do, I’ll certainly be calling you.

Have we told you lately that you are the best realtor in the world? You are the best realtor in the world. Every time we are together is a good experience. There have been times when you mentioned, “I have another client who…” I always pause and think, another client? How can Joni have other clients when she makes us feel like we are the only important people on the planet? You make us feel so sincerely cared for through the ups and downs of purchasing a property. We have had many relationships with realtors and as such know that you are one in a million. We have been blessed by having you in our lives.

Joni is one of the most knowledgeable real estate sales associates I have met in my career…I urge you to carefully consider Joni, one of the most remarkable sales associates I have ever met.

Joni embodies all the qualities one would want in a Realtor.
