Joseph “Joe” Sabeh Jr.’s real estate pedigree began with his late father, an industry veteran of over forty years. “Growing up, I remember watching my dad talk about real estate around the house, attending his open houses, watching him start his own brokerage,” Joe remembers. “It really got me thinking about going into the field.” Eighteen years later, after gaining experience under his father’s tutelage, Joe has cemented himself as a major industry player in the Bay Area and beyond, complete with a reputation for superlative client care, aggressive negotiating power, and relationships that stand the test of time.
Today, Joe spearheads his work in Fremont and also serves the regional communities of Pleasanton, Danville, Livermore, Walnut Creek, Dublin, San Ramon, Blackhawk, and Milpitas. Likewise, he has built experience in San Francisco and is making inroads in the Los Angeles marketplace, as well. Under the banner of Venture Sotheby’s International Realty, Joe works with the support of a buyer’s agent, a transaction coordinator, a marketing consultant, a graphic designer, a copywriter, and a stager. Over the course of his nearly two-decade career, Joe has cultivated an enterprise largely driven by repeat and referral clientele—amounting to 75% of his clientshare. To account for his legacy of success thus far, Joseph cites the influence of his father, as well as a devotion to outstanding service and personal connection. “I follow up regularly with my clients, and I value the little details,” Joseph says. “We connect over lunch or coffee, and I keep communication at the forefront. During the course of a transaction, I like to under-promise and over-deliver. It’s my goal to make the process as seamless as possible. It can be stressful experience for some, but I like to get my clients excited and make it a fun transition for them. I want to make it an experience they’ll remember fondly, rather than a process they just have to get through.”
When it comes to listing properties, Joe flexes his knack for marketing and negotiations to achieve ideal results in short order. “I’m extremely aggressive when it comes to putting properties together pre-market,” he explains. “I prep each home and I’m a perfectionist who specializes in listings, so I understand what goes into preparing it and marketing it to the fullest and for the best value. The media I use is second to none, and that’s a major factor that sets me apart.” Joe’s listing campaigns begin with high-end professional photography and videography to ensure each listing is showcased in its most immersive light. From there, he blends the best practices of digital and traditional market methods—from sleek listing booklets and brochures, to luxury home ads and cover features in real estate periodicals. Furthermore, Joe casts a wide net to garner exposure for the high-end properties he lists, leveraging Sotheby’s global reach and traveling as far as Hong Kong to create buyer intrigue. Joe is also a Certified Negotiations Expert with a record that speaks for itself, as he sold an off-market listing in Fremont for $12 million—the largest sale in the city’s history. Now, he is on track to surpass $80 million in volume in 2018 alone.
Beyond the office, Joe gives back to his community by supporting organizations such as STAND, which raises awareness and supports survivors of domestic violence. He also contributes on a local level to area schools, such as Mission San Jose High School and Saratoga’s The Harker School. In his free hours, Joe most enjoys time spent with family and friends, traveling, playing the occasional round of golf, and catching the latest movie.
As for the future of his business, Joe shows no signs of slowing anytime soon. In addition to his roster of multi-million-dollar listings in one of the country’s most competitive marketplaces, he is also eyeing expansion southward to Los Angeles, where he has a few projects already in the works. He also hopes to break his record and clear $150 million in yearly volume. For now, Joe is content to build upon his father’s professional legacy as he grows his own flourishing practice and shapes the landscape of his hometown region—one property at a time.
Now, with eighteen years of insight behind him, Joseph Sabeh Jr. considers what he has come to value most about his career. “I love helping people find some enjoyment and peace throughout the process,” he says. “Beyond getting top dollar for someone’s home, I really enjoy seeing the smile on the faces of my clients when we reach the closing table together.”
