Joe DiRaffaele - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Joe assisted us with the sale of home in Las Vegas after the passing of of my best friend's dad.

Joe was fabulous. He was a tremendous asset in helping us with not only the sale of the home (at a price higher than asking price) but provided us with the names and contact information of persons for virtually every need we had in handling the estate in Las Vegas from our home in Kentucky--names of pool cleaning company; estate sale company; handyman for door repairs; home cleaning service; attorney for the estate--to name a few. Joe was amazing and provided exceptional service above and beyond what you would expect from a realtor. He was an amazing "can do" professional who made the liquidating of an estate from a distance effortless. Highly recommend Joe and his team.

David Beyer

We hired Joe DiRaffaele to sell my home in Summerlin.

He was very professional and communicated with us at every stage in the process. He really made us feel comfortable with the transaction. He got us a great result! I would highly recommend hiring Joe D for any real estate sales transaction.

Stacy R

What a great example of giving back to the community.

Even though they are extremely busy they took time out to arrange having a blood donation event in their office. Great job and great company.

Tim A

After two years of frustration and dismal experiences with several realtors in Las Vegas, Dave Reichert of DG was such a relief.

He doesn't seem like a realtor, and that's a big compliment. He's professional but not slick, he's genuine, kind, smart and responds fast. Exactly what you want when you're making such a major decision. Where others have complicated the process for peculiar reasons of their own, he makes it easy and comfortable. He restores my faith in his profession. What a nice guy.

! Melanie was our exceptional advocate and real estate agent during our 5-month home purchasing ordeal. We now live in our perfect home! Melanie patiently showed us at least 2 dozen homes while we searched for the perfect house. She has a keen eye, super-hero Spidey Sense and a pro's knowledge of the Las Vegas real estate market. Each time we considered a house, she would give us the pros and cons so we could make the decision. Mel never pressured us and was always patient (we changed our minds several times). I'm extremely thankful for her advice. Once we finally decided on our current home, the owners and their agent proved to be unreasonable. Mel was always in our corner to manage and shield us from this difficult process while also keeping us informed. She negotiated and countered like a Jedi Knight! (We later learned that Joe was the behind-the-scenes negotiator as well--so we felt like the entire DG Realty team was pulling for us). While we didn't have to, we trusted Mel's recommendations for our inspections (Red Beard Inspections), our mortgage (floor rate mortgages) and title company (First American Title Insurance Company). (Oh BTW, Red Beard Inspections saved us from drama on our first choice--I highly recommend Jed Semper's services. Kris Martino at floor rate mortgages also worked in our best interest--twice). Finally, every phone call and e-mail we received from DgRealty (especially Erin) was courteous, professional and timely. They answered all of our questions during this process.

Joe D and his team made selling our home so easy and as stress-free as possible.

I highly recommend them!

Derrick Lahrman

Joe D is the most knowledgeable Real Estate agent in Las Vegas.

It's clear he's been in this market for over 25 years as he is able to educate on all of the advantages and disadvantages of each community. He is also the only person I would want negotiating on my behalf buying or selling because he negotiates as if it's his own money. He is going to get you the most money if you're selling or the best deal if you're buying!

Katie Perry

The DiRaffaele group does an incredible job of representing their clients in all selling environments.

I highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Kevin Mills Real Estate

Joe DiRaffaele was so helpful with finding a home that fit our needs, and in the time-frame we required.

He went out of his way to give us first-class service and attention. In our experience of multiple home purchases/sells, Joe is the best real estate agent that has ever represented my husband and I. He is a professional, respectful and kind family man who can be trusted to assist you with finding the perfect home. Thank you a million Joe!

April Wytrychowski

Joe and Shannon were fabulous and truly love their job!

Both were extremely professional and understanding and really took the time to help us find our forever dream home. They were very patient with us and helped us through the process from finding our home to "sealing" the deal. We are so very thankful to both of you and you will be forever in our hearts.


These folks are hands-down the best in the business.

I come from a real estate family in Utah (father is a Realtor, my older sister and brother in law are in the business), I grew up watching what separates the part-timers from the full-timers and the full-timers from the pros. The folks at Dg Realty are pros. The thing that impressed me most about Joe/Dave & Shannan is they don't sugar coat things or tell you what you want to hear (or guide you to do what's in their best interest), they tell you what they're going to do and then they do it. Sometimes that means a little tough love but they don't BS. Joe negotiated the purchase of my last home in a multi-offer scenario (the seller had 5 offers to choose from). I truly believe our offer was accepted because the Dg Realty Team picked up the phone and the seller's Realtor could tell she was dealing with a team of professionals. Later in the process, Joe was able to negotiate several things in our favor (repairs/appraisal items). Every time I've purchased a home, it's been a stressful process, there's no changing that. But on the deals I've done with this group, I knew everything would work out because they had my back. Highly recommended. If you're reading this and trying to decide between agents, look no further.

Cory B

Joe & the DG team represented me when I purchased my home.

I consider Joe the King of Negotiation. My appraisal came in $9,000 short and I was getting about that in seller paid closing costs. Somehow, Joe managed to get the seller to reduce the sales price to appraised value AND he saved my closing costs! Not a small feat by any measure... especially considering the market. I refer this team to everyone I know because I know they will receive top notch service and representation. Thanks DG!

Alysa L

Joe DiRaffaele came highly recommended by friends of the family.

We interviewed Joe and two other realtors for the sale of my parents home. Each realtor seemed qualified and could do OK. But Joe seemed to be the one that would do the best job and HE DID! He was so responsive, did what he said and did it in a timely manner. We handed him the keys and listed the home that same day he staged it. We closed with a very close to asking offer in less than 1 month!!!! All due to Joe's insight and guidance throughout. I entrusted his judgement on any repairs or issues since we were not living in Las Vegas and doing everything remote from California. Stop searching. In Las Vegas I would only use Joe D and would highly recommend him to anyone. And, he is a great person as well.

Scott S. San Francisco, CA

From start to end Joe and Shannon were professional and personable the entire time.

I wish more agents were like them. Their team was super attentive and on the ball. Their photographer took amazing pictures and made my home look the best it ever has. Even now, after closing is over they are still there for me as I buy a home in another state, helping to get it done. I am a single woman and I work very hard and I expect others to “do their job” as well. Joe and Shannon absolutely did their job and even more, I will recommend them to everyone I can.

Kim Terry

It seems like you can throw a stone and hit a realtor these days, however you'll struggle to hit an agent like Joe because when it comes to having the full package, very few people can compete at his level.

He is the 'pro's pro' - in the few years I've known Joe, he has consistently overdelivered time and time and time again. It goes beyond buying and selling, it's about peace of mind, it's about negotiating the best deal and its about taking care of the things that keep you up at night. I cannot think of anyone better prepared to navigate the process, just ask Joe how many people he helped during the pandemic lockdown (while other agents were twiddling their thumbs), his record speaks for itself. * * * * * * yep, six stars!

Dan Burke

Joe and team did a great job helping us relocate to Las Vegas.

They even provided us with guided tours of properties via facetime when we couldn't be there in person to look at properties first hand. Thanks, Joe and Shannan for going the extra mile!

Michael Seidler

I really can't say enough about Joe and his team.

Joe was excited to sell our property and immediately made us feel at ease. Joe's photographer did a phenomenal job capturing the best of our home; as soon as the property was listed, we received a tremendous response. Not only was our house in contract after only a matter of days, Joe really stepped it up when we needed to buy something quick. The house we wanted had been sitting on the market for many many months. It was overpriced and the sellers rejected multiple offers. With Joe's expertise and advice, we were able to make and have accepted our very first offer. In about 50 days, we seamlessly closed on the sale of our old and purchase of our new home. We couldn't be happier with the service, dedication, responsiveness and expertise of Joe and his entire team. Every time I had a question, they had an answer. Any time I started to feel nervous, they eased those anxieties. For so long, I had dreaded the process of selling our home and buying a new one, but if I ever had to do it again, I wouldn't hesitate to use Joe and his team again.

Holly Roys

To Shannan, Joe D.

and the entire DG Team... Thanks to all of you for an outstanding job on selling our home. We were impressed every step of the way. Your service, communication, high quality marketing and of course how you handled negotiations make us wish we had another home to sell. I really appreciate you being there to answer every question we had along the way. Many thanks for such a smooth sale!!

Dave B

I would use Joe DiRaffaele any day.

He will get the deal done quick and for top dollar. I have used Joe DiRaffaele to sell multiple homes through probate court and he sells the homes quickly and for top dollar. Any client that I have sent him has raving reviews of him. It is always a smooth process with him. If you are considering selling or buying a home then consider Joe D. You will be in great hands!

Nikkita Burdick

DiRaffaele Group was more than fabulous and exceeded my expectation!

Joe and Becki helped me every step of the way. The entire team is professional, and thorough. The team took the time to explain the process and this was extremely crucial being the home was in probate. Knowing they knew the complicated process of selling a home in probate assured me I selected the best realtor for the job. With the blanket of marketing they provided my home sold quick! I must add every time I called they answered! I can't thank them enough.

April Hiett

Joe and Shannon are phenomenal people.

They both go far above and beyond anyone’s expectations. Although we have purchased our forever home, if we were ever in the market again either for buying or selling, Joe and Shannon will always be our “go to” people. We love you both! B&C

Barbara Tanner

"The team at the DiRaffaele Group are amazing.

I have worked with them on many different listings and know that they have an excellent eye for detail and do an awesome job at marketing the property you are looking to sell. On the flip side, if you are looking to buy they will find out from you what you are looking for in a dream home and bust their butts to find it for you. Either way, if your looking to buy or sell, you cannot go wrong with putting the DiRaffaele Group Team on you side. "

Keith Diamond

Their detailed approach and customer service second to none.

Even during a pandemic they were able to complete the sail of our home. Thanks a million times over.

Marc Gottlieb

Thank you to Joe, Becki and the entire team at DiRaffaele Group of eXp Realty.

Joe and his team managed the sale of my mom's condo in just over 30 days. Even though, I live in Florida, Joe and his team were always available to communicate via email, phone and or text. The entire team were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend the DiRaffaele Group of eXp Realty to handle any of your real estate needs. DiRaffaele Group Rocks!

Lisa Q

We worked with Joe and his team on the sale of my mom's home.

Joe and the team were all highly professional from start to finish. They helped my mom and our family to feel more comfortable during a challenging time!

Lana Hammond

Joe D handles real estate in a way that allows me to absolutely mentally hand it off to him and his team.

WHITE GLOVE treatment, great negotiator and a DEEP knowledge of the market, people, and transacting real estate. Joe has helped me and my wife with several properties and we have been favorably impressed with him and his staff EVERY TIME. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Darin Hoover

I have known and worked with Joe and the DiRaffaele Group for years.

I an impressed with his ability to give me the most accurate market info. This helps me make great business decisions. I highly recommend this group to anyone need real estate services.

Greg Harrelson

Joe negotiated purchase of a property for me a few years ago at an excellent price and then a few years later sold the same property for a 130% gain.

He recommended the 2nd high offer because the buyer had stronger financials. Joe is a very thorough person and is always looking out for his clients best interest.


We recently used Joe and Shannan to sell our Townhome in Mountain's Edge.

Not only did they ensure we got top dollar for our property but the transaction went so smoothly and quickly! They treated us so well. We could have not been happier with the results.

Natalie B

The DiRaffaele Group are the go to real estate professionals in Las Vegas.

They were the most knowledgeable and dedicated agents that I have worked with. I would highly recommend them to anyone I know.

Thach Nguyen

"I wanted to say that I work with many Realtors as part of my real estate practice and Joe's reputation precedes him.

They all say "he's a solid dude" or "he knows his stuff" or "great Realtor". That's the type of person I want on my team!"

Scott K

Worked with Shannan.

What we liked most was her honesty and candor. It wasn't just about making a sale. she understood exactly what we wanted and found appropriate properties for us to see. If there was something wrong with the property, Shannan was the first one to point it out. She knows the valley really well which was very important as we moved to LV from the east coast and didn't know all the areas. she was a tremendous resource. She also connected us with all the vendors we needed once we bought the property. when we couldn't make the closing, she stood in for us!! Now that's service!! If you are looking for an honest and smart real estate agency with great customer service, its DG . Mike S. Lake Las Vegas

Mike S

I used Joe as our selling agent recently and was very pleased with how the entire process went from beginning to end.

During our first meeting we discussed a few minor cosmetic fixes and how the house would be staged as well as pricing. With Joe's expertise in those areas, as well as his marketing skills, our home did not sit on the market long, it was under contract quickly and at the selling price we wanted. If you are a buyer or seller I would highly recommend Joe DiRaffaele and his team to handle your real estate needs.

Robin Summerfruit

It was very comforting to allow Joe and Dave to sell my house.

They were very professional and Knowledgeable. I felt they were giving me the absolute best advice to sell the property fast and get me top dollar for it. I will recommend their team to all my friends and family

Bryan Kleinman

Joe's team sold my property recently and realized 72 hour deal, multiple offers better than asking price at the highest price per square foot in neighborhood reported in years.

The neighbors were shaking my hand thanking me for the great comps and raising their property values! What more can I say? If you want a true professional, the best of the best, and not just someone you know that has a Real Estate licence that can fog a mirror like most...CALL DG!

Rich C

We had a 5 star experience with both Joe and Shannan while trying to find our new home here in Nevada.

Coming from Chicago the architecture, neighborhoods and lack of backyards here posed a real challenge for us. They were not just overly patient with us but they would give us honest feedback like we were family members. They found us the perfect house in the right neighborhood and were incredible negotiators. They are both experts in their field and we will continue to refer our friends and family to them.

Shannon Jordan

I have been working with Joe DiRaffaele and David Reichert for the past couple of years, and they have been exceptional.

If you are looking for a responsive caring and loyal agent to represent you, Mr. Reichert is the one for you. Thank you guys.

Fernando A

If you’re ever looking for someone that cares about our community, someone that’s going to stand behind his word, you found your agent/broker Joe D.

. One of the best agents that has been around with the most experience in the Las Vegas community. He is someone that’s driven and family oriented. Joe has your best interest.

Marshall Realty

Both as a buyer and as a seller, absolutely the best in town!

Worked with super agent Dave Reichert to buy and then sell my condo and we was amazing - twice! Totally knowledgeable, professional and just down-right fun! Would not hesitate to recommend Dave or Dg to anyone needing real estate assistance.

Larry H.

Joe and his team were absolutely great to work with throughout the entire process of selling our house and purchasing our new home.

We had interviewed one agent prior to meeting Joe, and as soon as Joe walked in the door and we met, we knew he was our guy. He was really enjoyable to work with and was very encouraging of the home we were selling, and was clear with us what needed to be done to get top dollar, and get it done quickly. As soon as we sold our house, we found our new home, ended up the home of our dreams, and negotiated a deal quickly. We could not be more pleased with how the entire process worked with Joe and his team and would absolutely recommend them to anyone and everyone. Great experience and thanks again!!

Brian Basile

Thank you!

Thank you! Thank you! Joe, Shannon and the entire staff are truly amazing. They sold our home in three days, the buyers reconsidered, and they had new buyers within two days. The staging was wonderful, their photographer professional and attention to detail. We love the new home they helped us find as well. Buying and/or selling a home, I wouldn't recommend anyone else. If there were more than 5 stars that's what the DiRaffaele Group would receive from us. Thanks you once again.

Lawrence Ocon

Dave Reichert is the best such a great guy and so knowledgeable about real estate and the areas!

If you are looking to buy a home in Las Vegas I highly recommend Dave and the DG Team.

Eileen S

I have worked with a few realtors and real estate groups in the past and working with DiRaffaele Group of eXp Realty was a breath of fresh air!

I knew I could always count on them to be on time, accountable and get things done! From the start their realtor met with us and made us feel like their only client. They listened to the price range, part of town and specifics we want in a home. They didn't pressure us to go for a different part of town for our new home, they didn't try and sway us any other way than what we wanted. Other realtors have tried to push us in directions that fit their agenda. Not DiRaffaele Group, they work for you and buy and sell how you want it. If they say they're going to do something, you better believe they are going to get it done. If they promise they are going to sell your home for a certain price, they get it done. If they promise to help you buy a home for a certain price, they get it done. They do all the hard work so you can sit back, relax and know you're in good hands. DiRaffaele Group of eXp Realty is the only group I'll be listing and buying homes with for as long as I’m in Las Vegas.

Ali Marty

Joe DiRaffaele is a top-notch real estate professional.

I have friends that have used his services and they cannot say enough good things about him. He negotiates the best deal for you and always has your best interest at heart. If you take a look at his listings you see the level of professionalism. Compared to other realtor listings you'll see a clear difference. I can highly recommend Joe and his team at the DiRaffaele Group of eXp Realty.

Bill B

Joe and his team are knowledgeable, has great experience, and are amazing!

I have sold three houses with him. All of my houses sold in the first weekend on the market, with multiple bids, and went for over asking. Joe and his whole team are very responsive, give great advice, lots of experience, and helps with decisions in what is the best way to market and sell our houses. He knows the Vegas market like no one else. OUTSTANDING service and caring. I will use him again if I have another house to sell. Thanks Joe!

Kathryn Van Diepen

Joe D is experienced, professional, fun and he knows how to keep it real, and gets his clients the best for them.

He is trustworthy, and his confidence protects his clients. He truly is the best at what he does!

Amber Joy

Joe D and the entire DiRaffaele Group team were absolutely amazing during an incredibly difficult time for my family.

They stepped in and provided great professional guidance and demonstrated a sincere level of concern during a very critical time for our family. We are extremely grateful for them and the exceptionally high level of service provided!
