About Me

 

Joe Piazza's Mission Statement

  

I recognize that purchasing or selling a home is the single largest investment my clients will make in their lives.  My goal is that every client’s home provides a sound investment that maximizes equity, provides security for a strong family foundation, and is located within the top ranked school districts in the Silicon Valley. 

 

My mission is to maintain my reputation of honesty and integrity in dealing with all clients and business associates.  I will be patient with my clients and be an excellent listener to their needs and wants.  I have a sincere understanding and respect for different cultures which make the San Francisco Bay Area such a dynamic, unique, and exciting place to live and raise a family.

 

I am proud so many people put their trust in my real estate leadership and I look forward to proving my reputation with you.
