Over the past 10 years, Joel has built an extensive knowledge base. His diverse experience encompasses the acquisition and sale of a wide variety of real estate, from starter homes, investment properties and coastal estates, to luxury condominium, 1031 exchanges, manufactured homes, bank owned properties and vacation rentals.
A native of North Carolina and a Wilmington resident since 1995, Joel has a comprehensive understanding of local property values, school districts, and subdivisions. An educated professional and astute business sense, he realized his natural aptitude for sales and affinity for working with people from building a successful furniture import business with his family.
Though he has earned referrals and trust as a result of his vast expertise in the Northeast Wilmington market, as he has lived there for many years, Joel is always willing to travel wherever the interests of his clients should take him.
Joel enjoys sharing his extensive local knowledge and putting his negotiating skills to work for the benefit of his clients.
Hi everybody. I just closed on a townhome in Shallotte. Joel represented my interest as the buyer, in all the best ways. I met him on the phone and he was quick to take my information and contact me with leads on investment/multi-family properties. Joel even met some of my family members and showed them a lovely home, in their neighborhood, that was for sale. Joel (aka Billy) was my boots on the ground and his keen insight made all the difference to me. Would I use him again, in more, real estate adventures? I couldn't blink fast enough to say....definitely....YES! Always yours, Stephen (Vegas).
Joel Sheesley's extensive experience and sparkling personality have made this experience the most delightful I have ever had in the real estate arena. He outlined every step of the process, followed-up timely on every issue, and was just there when I needed to speak. I would highly recommend him and will certainly retain him again, if the need arose.
Joel made many pieces come together to make our home-buying dreams come true. Joel has a lot of knowledge about the area and knows just about everyone. :-) We give this experience an A+!
Joel Sheesley is the man!
Hands down the best relator in town. We have now bought a home with him and sold a home with him and both experiences were the best one could ask for. His knowledge of Wilmington and the surrounding areas is second to none.
I have also and will continue to refer anyone and everyone that is in need of a stand up person to be in their court when it comes to purchasing a home or selling a home.
Incredible to work with! Had an awesome experience working with the Sheesley team from start to finish!! Will recommend Joel to all of our friends and family.
I've recently had the opportunity to work with Joel (& team) on selling a home in the local area and purchasing another new build home. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with someone who exemplifies professionalism in every possible way. Joel did an outstanding job in marketing my property and put together one of the most impressive marketing packages I've experienced in previously selling/purchasing multiple homes in the area. From the beginning of the process, his knowledge of the market was evident and he worked tirelessly to sell my home against a deadline during unprecedented times (Covid). His communication, responsiveness and follow up have been top notch ... even post purchase of the new home. Without hesitation I give Joel Sheesley a ringing endorsement and would highly recommend him and his team to anyone in the market to buy or sell a home! My only regret is that I did not meet him sooner, when I was previously doing the same type of transaction.
Joel was a pleasure to work with! From the beginning Joel guided us but still let us make our own decisions and he supported us throughout the process. Our situation got a bit muddy towards the end (due to no fault of Joel’s or our own) and I still feel as though he did everything he could to make our sell happen! He went above and beyond our expectations to help us with our out of state move and even handled some things with our buying experience, even though he was not obligated to do so. I hope we have the opportunity to work with Joel again someday!
It was a pleasure to work with Joel’s team! From beginning to end they were very patient & dedicated on finding my forever home! The process itself was easy to understand with the help of our real estate by explaining everything in detail. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to buy/rent!
Joel is a great agent to work with!! From the time the contract was signed thru closing, we were constantly updated on everything. Joel was there with us every step of the way even though we technically were not his client. We will be using Joel again as we venture onto building our next home!! Thanks again for the great service!!
My husband and I are new home buyers and fell in love with an old house. Joel did a very good job of lining up all the necessary contractors and inspectors to make sure there was nothing wrong with the house. He also gave us great advice when guiding us through the negotiation process. Would definitely recommend to my friends! Thanks Joel!
Scott King was very helpful through the whole process of listing and selling our home. Scott was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and if there was a question he couldn’t answer he had a whole team of experts at his back.
Joel did an amazing job selling our home. We were not in the best situation and he always remained positive it would sell. He used his strong negotiation skills and made it work. Thank you Joel for making it happen.
This was our second house that Joel helped us purchase. He was always very responsive and easy to get a hold of. If he didn’t have the answer he would get the answer quickly and thoroughly. We enjoyed working with Joel.
My husband and I were looking for our first home and could not have chosen a better realtor than Joel! Joel was extremely knowledgeable in regard to pricing, long-term value, location, and more... He took the time to understand our wants and needs and what we were looking for -- and we were in a serious time crunch! He treated us as his most important clients, though I know he had a lot on his plate. He helped us navigate a lot of the stressful parts of buying a home and supported us from start to finish. Even though we had just met Joel, we felt like we had a friend who was keeping our best interests in mind. I highly recommend Joel for any and all of your real estate needs!
Simply put, Joel is the best! He is responsive, honest, and works for you. He listens to your needs and wants and will help you find your perfect home. Having purchased two homes with Joel and sold one, he displays his vast knowledge of the market and trends.
Joel did an outstanding job listing our home. He held a brokers luncheon, featured our home on realtor magazine, photography and drone were beautiful.
Our experience with selling our home and buying our new home was nothing short of amazing with Joel! He was there for us every step of the way and always made us feel like we were his #1 priority. There were many late night or weekend questions we had and he never hesitated to help us no matter the time of day! He is super knowledgeable and made us feel at ease with the whole process. We cannot thank him enough for his guidance!
Great to work with, works at your pace and works for what you want. Listed and sold our home ( multiple offers in a short time frame. Helped us purchase new home and purchase well below listed price.
Joel is simply amazing at what he does. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient and giving of his time. He knows the business of selling a house well from addressing damage from the recent hurricanes and preparing the house for listing to closing, I felt extremely comfortable and confident working with Joel. Joel took the time to understand my needs and was patient throughout the entire process. Thank you, Joel, for going above and beyond my expectations! I would most definitely recommend Joel to anyone who needs a professional, knowledgeable and experienced realtor.
I was in a rush to gather some local real estate knowledge to help me make a decision on selling a home. I contacted Joel over a weekend. He immediately made himself available to educate me on the market and property values, including lots of great comp data. Throughout, he was highly professional, knowledgeable and responsive. A fantastic experience all around. Thanks Joel.
Joel was professional and super helpful in his negotiating skills and helping us to get the best results in the sale of our home. We would definitely recommend him for any of your housing needs.
I just worked with Joel a second time to buy and sell a homes. Joel knows the market, is extremely personable and quickly responds to any of your requests. Great guy and great realtor.
Loved working with Joel twice within 2 years! Joel is professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. I can highly recommend him to anyone seeking a truly professional Realtor.
Joel went above and beyond from showing properties to negotiating a contract to the closing. A true professional who has been absolutely great to work with!
My wife Amy and I could not be more grateful to have had Joel be our agent! He was extremely professional and got our house sold literally in 3 days! I recommend Joel not only because he's an outstanding agent, but because he's also an outstanding person!
Joel was recommended to me by a friend. Best decision I could have made. Very prompt, very professional, and very flexible. I work 3rd shift and Joel had no problem working around my schedule. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anybody.
Joel made our experience of buying our first home incredibly easy and stress-free. He is a true expert in his field and an advocate for his clients. He will make sure you will get your dream house at the best price! He is extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with!
Joel was very patient and a pleasure to be around! I always looked forward to our house searches together. I was not in the market for a new home but I'm so happy he suggested Belle Meade!!! I felt very comfortable asking any question and i had a lot of them since it had been 19 years since i had bought a house. So glad he was my agent for both selling my house and for the purchase of my new one!
Joel was very professional and thorough during our search for a home in Wilmington. I have and will recommend him to others who are looking to purchase or sell in the area.
Can't say enough about Joel, Top notch real estate professional! he listed our home and had it sold in 2 days and helped us on the purchase of our new home as well. Very professional and we have referred him to several friends and will continue to use him on any future sales or purchases. You can definitely count on Joel to help with any real estate needs!! Thanks again Joel
My house was listed for a day before I had an offer. I had to close on my house while I was out of town on business and Joel took care of all the leg work I would have normally had to do prior to the house closing. I would suggest him for any real estate transaction you may need.
I ran into Joel by inquiring a home with him as the listing agent. After we met at the property and spoke for a bit about what I was looking for, it was just smooth sailing from then on. We looked at several properties together and had an answer for every question I had, he did his research before we even walked in the door. My journey from "Hi Joel, I'm just looking, I might buy a house" to "I just bought a house" was less than three months. This was my first home purchase and I can say with certainty because of his help the stress was non-existent. He helped me find what I was looking for did everything he could to ensure I got it, and I did! I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone buying or selling a house. This is your guy.
Joel did an amazing job selling our home. He hired a great photographer to take amazing photos of our home. Advised us many things we did know went along with selling our home. We were able to get more for our home then when even thought possible. It was a pleasure and a blessing having him help us sell our home!!
Joel was incredibly patient with us throughout the entire process. He worked with us for over 2 years while we painstakingly made all the decisions involved in selling our home and purchasing another home. He made us feel as if we were his only clients, negotiated everything in our favor and made sure everything went smoothly. We are now living in the perfect house, one we were able to spot the hour it came on the market thanks to the portal Joel set up for us. We were never late to the listing game, and he did everything possible to ensure we could see any and every home right away. We are so appreciative of Joel's patience, consistency, hard work, and dedication.
Best of the best! Our experience with Joel was nothing less than outstanding. As we were not exactly sure as to what we were looking for, Joel demonstrated excellent listening skills, a great mastery and knowledge of the local area, and appropriately challenged us to consider homes outside of our comfort zone in order to better define our search. In the end Joel helped us find the perfect home for us - we could not be more satisfied. During the negotiation process, he was realistic, supportive, assertive, and most importantly, effective. Having purchased several homes throughout our lifetimes, this was without question the best experience we have ever had working with a realtor!
Joel sheesley is very knowledgeable and he truly careing. To be first time home buyer I was unaware of all the processes and procedures that came with the home buying process. Joel coached me through the entire process from loan to close and beyond. If tour looking for first class service, look no further.
Joel is out for your best interest. He spent countless hours trying to find our family all the things we were looking for in a home. He is a trained professional full of integrity and I would most definitely recommend him to absolutely anyone in any situation. I can't say enough good things about him!
Extremely knowledgable in every aspect of the business. He was very helpful and was available all the time which is a huge plus and has no problem taking lots of calls for whatever questions you have. He really worked hard to find the house that I wanted in the area I wanted and the price that fit me best. He was the best realtor I've ever dealt with by far
Just closed on our first home with Joel! He's awesome. He found us the perfect place and was a pleasure to work with. His knowledge and expertise are unmatched. He is definitely the expert realtor! Choose Joel, he's the best.
Very patient& knowledgeable. Willing to look at listings multiple times. Kept my expectations realistic. Negotiated price of house we were buying from owner to more in line with others sold in neighboring communities
We were very pleased to have listed our home for sale with Joel. He provided a personal and professional experience during the entire process of listing to closing. Joel responded promptly to answer any and all questions. He insured we were informed about each step along the way. We would certainly seek Joel's real estate expertise if needed again in the future.
I am not good at reviews, so I am going to get rite to the point. Joel is an excellent agent, and I would highly recommend him. If I have to buy or sell a house again, I will defiantly use Joel again.
Joel did a great job for us from start to finish. As out-of-town purchaser's, he was instrumental in finding a home and even helped with our renovation and when it came time to Sell, we of course went with him again. I would highly recommend Joel as his insight into the local market helped us tremendously with letting us know the "extra things" we needed to do for a quick sell!
Joel is a fantastic realtor! He's helped me buy and sell a few homes and I appreciate his attention to detail, patience and market knowledge. Joel's marketing team with their professional pictures and videos far surpassed my previous experiences. I recommend Joel to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home.
Joel went above and beyond to help us find a house in Wilmington. My wife and I love riding our bikes from our house to the beach. He helped us locate a 3 bedroom house in our budget.
Very professional, And Knows everything about the area. I was a hard one to find a house for. And he did it. And was very helpful . I will be using Joel in any future home buying or selling i do.
Joel was an absolute pleasure to work with...always available, full of knowledge and extremely personable! Whether I called for neighborhood and school information, purchase/financing options, or to simply relay some of the challenges involved with relocating from overseas, Joel listened and provided some positive input. I would definitely use Joel to sell/purchase a home in the future.
Joel did an excellent job handling the sale of my house. He is very knowledgeable and reliable. He was great and easy to work with, and I'd highly recommend him for all your real estate needs.
My parents and I both utilized Joel as our realtor. We all were impressed with his professionalism as well as his work ethics. Joel took the time to get to know us on a personal level which I feel helped him in picking the right houses to show us. The process has been seamless and as stress free as possible. I have truly enjoyed working with Joel through my purchasing process.
This is the second home bought thru Joel.He is a very good agent. He had our interests in mind when gathering homes for inspection. Knows how to find what you want and to get the best offer to the seller. Did a gr eat job at getting seller to fix all of the problems pointed out in the Home Inspection.
He is a first-class real estate agent and would highly recommend him to friends and family . Very personable,friendly professional and all around great to have him as our agent.
