What Our Clients Are Saying

Jan did a great job getting our house listed and sold. 3 offers in the first 24 hours of our house going live. Thanks again!

Kris Bolan

Experienced, professional, and kind. Jan and Joe helped us sell our house and navigate the road from listing to closing.

David Snow

We have known Joe for many years and knew that he was honest and trustworthy. Joe and his staff are very professional. They were patient with all our questions and answered them promptly. The first offer on our house fell through but Joe was right on it. He set up an open house and we got another offer right away. This helped keep us in the timeline to get our other property. He and his staff worked hard throughout this whole process and kept us informed. We would definitely recommend The Wagley Group. Thanks again Joe. We appreciate all that you did.

Diane Chesher

The sale of my house went quickly and without any issues, The advice from Joe was very helpful and he was willing to accommodate my timeline as well as the buyers. I would highly recommend the Wagley Group.

Donald Norton

Joe is a good man! He knows his market, respects his clients and is willing to do what he can to help in any situation. He listed my parents' home on May 12 and it closed on June 25. It was a long distance closing and Joe, Becky, and Abby kept me informed as the process progressed. I believe he and his team truly care about the client. I highly recommend The Wagley Group and greatly appreciate all that they did to help during a difficult time!

Michelle Long

Joe Wagley is amazing to work with. He is certainly a man of faith and integrity. He handled everything with professionalism and ease. I will be listing my home with him shortly. Thank you, Joe!

Brian Lewis

Joe Wagley and the Wagley Group were very professional and we were very comfortable with their knowledge of the Real Estate business. They answered all of our questions and kept us up to date on the whole home buying process. If you're looking for an agent whom you can trust. We definitely recommend the Wagley Group.

David Shankle

The team at the Wagley Group was great & helped make selling my parents’ home pretty painless given we were selling the house remotely and during the pandemic. Joe & the team kept in touch regularly during the process & the house sold relatively quickly. I would highly recommend having them as your real estate team.

Shirley Myers

Joe and his team were great to work with, made the process simple for us, and were truly professional. Highly recommend his services if you are in need.

Ben Chambers

I was so fortunate to find a home that was represented by The Wagley Group. Joe and his team are professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and the heart of this company is to find the house that will be the perfect home for your family. The staff was so kind and thoughtful and as excited as I was to finally find a home. Thanks, Joe, Becky, and Kary. I would work with you again and will recommend you to my friends.

Mary Skelton

We contacted Joe in the fall to let him know what we were looking for in a new home and that we wanted to take things slow. While we were not quite ready to take the plunge--we didn't want to miss out on the right opportunity. Joe followed our lead by allowing us to set the pace in our search for the right time and place. When we were in the best position to move forward and the right place came along, Joe was right there to help us get the winning bid at the right price. He helped us navigate the entire process during a very busy market, and we are extremely grateful for his expertise and patience!

Vicki Schmucker

Joe was great to work with on the sale of some property we had. He kept us informed on all of the steps along the way. He is honest and very trustworthy.

Cathie Lewis

I very much appreciate Joe Wagley and the staff for their guidance and professionalism in the sale of our deceased family member's home. Without their help, the process would have been much more difficult and indeed their advice helped to reach a sale price higher than what was originally appraised. When the need arises, I certainly would recommend the Wagley Group for any real estate sale transfers. Dr. Michael and Nancy Herr, - Mary Herr

Mary Herr

Gavin was very helpful and worked to resolve issues. If you need a realtor, I highly recommend Gavin Doyle.

Sara Bess

I found the agent, Gene Merillat, and the broker, Joe Wagley to be men of integrity that I could count on to manage this transaction. Gene was tireless in showing our property and always on time in his services. I would highly recommend their real estate services. Mine was a particularly challenging location to sell in and they doggedly kept at it to get it done. Thanks, everyone!

Keith Pennington

The Wagley Team met all my expectations with high quality, personable and professional services. My home was priced higher than I anticipated and I received multiple offers within the first month, despite listing it during the holidays. It was a good experience and I highly recommend Joe and the Team.

Chris Eder

Thank you Diane and Paul for all your help finding our home!!!!

Ashley MacHardy

Working with Gene Merillat was a wonderful experience! He helped us prepare to sell our former home giving advice on what needed to be done and even helped us find a contractor to make a fix when we weren't having any luck. Gene was quick to find properties that were possibilities for our family. He went out of his way to show us homes when we were available. He was professional in his advice about homes we considered. He answered all of our questions, calls, texts, and emails in a timely manner and kept us in the loop in the process of selling and buying. Gene went above and beyond to help us find our dream home! I would highly recommend Gene Merillat and The Wagley Group!
