- I very much appreciate Joe Wagley and staff for the guidance and professionalism in the sale of our deceased family member's home.

- 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

- We listed our home with Joe Wagley on October 1 and closed on December 1, 2021. This is the second property that Joe has sold for us in two years. We found Joe to be honest, professional and sincere in his advice and guidance in listing and selling our property. His staff was always helpful, courteous and friendly. We did interview several other realtors, but we ultimately chose Joe Wagley again because we trusted him. We trusted him to sell a property that we had owned and cared for, for 45 years, and he did not disappoint us! Thank you Joe! Valerie Bays

- Joe Wagley did a wonderful job for us. We were in a difficult position. We were unable to find a place for our daughter to rent in the area. We told him our situation and he went right to work, offering to show us houses that met our criteria. We also looked around the area on our own and found other houses that showed potential. He was also able to coordinate showing for those houses. In the end we found exactly what we wanted within our budget and in a very nice neighborhood. The closing was flawless. Joe is well respected in the community and very connected within the area. We would highly recommend his company. Steve Liebrecht
- This is the second time we worked with Joe in the past year--first helping us buy a home--then to help us navigate selling our home of 27 years. We trusted him to help us find the value and to market an older home during what is arguably the worst time of year to sell a house. His patience and professionalism is an asset for anyone looking to buy or sell. Vicki Schmucker
- 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.

Joe 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

- Working with Joe and the Wagley group was a joy through the entire process! Even though our home did not sell immediately, (the impression we got from some because of the market at the time), it sold quickly, with a solid offer. Joe's wisdom and patience, along with his availability when we had questions, was really exceptional. His team helped answer questions as well. For us, the Wagley Group would be our choice EVERY TIME there was a real estate need. Come to think of it, he helped us buy the home we just sold... 19 years ago!! Thanks again Wagley Group!!! Gene Reitz
- I am writing this review on for The Wagley Group Real Estate. I used Joe Wagley to sell a home I had. I can honestly tell you that it was the right choice. Joe knows his stuff. My dad had used him to sell my grandmas house several years ago and told me go with Joe. I made the call and meet with Joe. He is personable and extremely knowledgeable in real estate and patient because i know at the beginning of this I wasn't the easiest person to get along with but Joe is a pro. He and his wife Becky worked hard for me and the house sold for a good price. I would like to extend my appreciation and thanks to Joe and his wife Becky, and would not hesitate to use them again. I would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
- You helped make my selling experience very tolerable. Being an out of town, long distance seller comes with its own special challenges of which you handled masterfully. I truly appreciated your constant input and information every step of the way. I would highly recommend you and your team. Lawrence Zook
- My wife and I worked with The Wagley Group on 10 real estate transactions in Adrian over the last ten years. I can't say enough about how good our experience was to work with them during our time in Adrian! While the real estate service they provided was exceptional, we found Joe and Becky to be even better people. The same attention and service was provided regardless of the dollar amount of the transaction. We highly recommend the Wagley Group for any of your real estate needs. Stephen Buckland
- My wife and I have the highest regard for Joe Wagley and the Wagley Group. Our recent sale went smoothly and Joe took care of us at every step. We will definitely be calling them again next time. Michael Clegg
- Joe is a man of faith, integrity and professionalism. Working with his organization is a great choice. Ben Searcy
- The Wagley Group exceeded expectations in selling our two properties (old family home and rental property) in Adrian. I have known Joe for years (since high school) and I knew that he would do a great job for us, given his credibility, honesty, integrity and professionalism. We also found out during the listing and selling process how connected Joe is to other providers in Adrian that could help us. He made calls to an estate sales company to clear out the old family home, to a construction company that managed the necessary repairs and renovations in that property, and to a crew to remove debris and garbage from our rental property and to then clean it thoroughly. As soon as Joe called all of them, they followed up with us immediately and did great work. It was a tremendous help which expedited and simplified what would have been a very daunting process for us. This was a testimonial to how Joe is trusted and respected by many people and how The Wagley Group goes above and beyond to help its clients, while being a trusted advisor. I have bought and sold properties several times in several states over the past 40 years. Working with Joe and his team was by far my best real estate experience. A big thank you to Joe and The Wagley Group! Scott Scire
