Before becoming a Realtor®, Joe and his wife Kathy had already bought and sold seven homes. The first, an 1865 "handyman's special" in North Easton, Massachusetts, was an experience of a lifetime; then came a ranch in Albuquerque, a newly constructed split-entry in Connecticut and a custom-built home also in the Constitution State. With this home, however, they experienced the entire process from purchasing a lot and hiring a builder to overseeing the construction.
In relocating to Westborough, Joe brought his wealth of knowledge and experience to the construction of a five-bedroom, five-bathroom colonial. Calling it their best move, they settled in Westborough to raise their three children and provide an in-law suite for their parents. When their college-bound children invoked thoughts of downsizing, they found a charming Nantucket cape on the east side of Westborough to remodel. Ten years later and dubbing themselves "long term flippers," they found yet another property in town to update. They'll call the mid-century ranch—with a great view—their home for the next ten years.
Needless to say, Joe’s personal experience in real estate is of great benefit to his clients. Empathetic to both buyers and sellers, Joe works with diligence and compassion to get the job done. Whether a first time homeowner or a seventh time homeowner, whether it's a long term investment or a ten-year flipper, Joe will give exceptional service for all your real estate needs.
Joe lives in Westborough with his wife. Along with his expertise in real estate, he is an exceptional photographer.
"Joe is the epitome of what a Realtor should be...approachable, supportive, understanding, knowledgeable, courteous and, most importantly from my perspective, not pushy in any sense. Joe had tremendous patience in dealing with me (and my very picky wife Esama). We viewed many properties where we simply were not interested in upon further inspection...Joe was there every time and always kept us in mind when new houses arose in the market. Superimposed upon this is his excellent knowledge base, efficiency and, most importantly, integrity. He followed though on everything and was often proactive in helping us through the minefield of a home purchase. We recommend Joe Teceno to the fullest and look forward to again working with him in a few years when we will again be in the real estate market. We consider him a friend." ~Jason H., Shrewsbury, MA 01545
"Joe goes above and beyond - an often used statement but so absolutely true when describing Joe. Joe is very experienced, kind, helpful and was 100% commited in our hunt for our new home. He returned all of my many calls and text messages, answered all of my 10,000 questions - and did it all with a smile. Joe is not only an outstanding Agent, he is a wonderful person. I won't use anyone else and you will not be sorry by reaching out to him!" ~Ken & Karen S.
"I worked with Joe Teceno couple of times now one while buying in 2017 and now i sold the same house in 2021. Joe is a thorough professional and understands your requirements both sides (buying selling) and makes the process and communication very easy. Also he ensures he gets in touch with you to give valuable tips and up to date information. He has deep expertise in his area and would recommend Joe for anyone who is looking to buy or sell the house as it's the most important decisions in your life and at the same time stressful as well and joe makes your life easy." ~Praveen K.
"Can't say enough positive things about our working with Joe Teceno. My wife, family I had been searching, unsuccessfully, for our dream home for a few years. When it finally came on the market Joe's experience and influence was critical in our ability to be the winning buyers in a very crowded market. Joe helped us through every step of the process, proactively communicating on our behalf. The sellers ultimately received numerous offers and ours was NOT the highest. Perhaps most importantly, Joe understood how to make our offer be the most compelling and appealing to the sellers. Happily writing this review from the comfort of my dream home. Thanks again, Joe! Would always recommend Joe to others." ~Jaimi G., Westborough, MA
We have had the pleasure of knowing Joe for a long time so he was the first and only choice when we decided to put our home of 22 years on the market. He was extremely thorough in reviewing our options of listing price and timing with what was going on in the early part of 2020. We followed all his suggestions and our home sold in 18 days! Joe is one of the most professional, caring and calming real estate agents in the market today, and I have a long past history of selling real estate. I highly recommend Joe Teceno if you are looking to sell your home in any market! ~Stacy O., Westborough, MA
Joe is a true professional. His kind demeanor and straightforward manner was refreshing and he always had our best interest in mind. An out of state move is very stressful but it was reassuring to know that Joe was there to help us through the process. And, we made a friend out of the process! ~Debara, Westborough, MA
Our experience with Joe was excellent. He was prompt with all correspondence by phone, text and email. He was able to fast track all aspects of ou home search: offer to the Seller, P&S contract, home inspection and closing. From our initial contact with Joe to view some properties to the final closing on our selected condo took a total of only 15 days. The home inspector and real estate attorney he recommended were excellent. In summary we found Joe to be helpful, personable, respectful and very professional. ~Jim C., Southborough, MA
Thank you Joe for all your help in purchasing new home. When we first met Joe Teceno, he explained that his job is more service than sales, he was very patient and answered every question we had. He is very honest with his opinions about all the homes we viewed and knowledge of home construction and the local market. Every time we viewed a new property Joe would perform a methodical inspection, looking for signs of problems and commenting on the quality of construction, finish, appliances, etc. Joe was awesome throughout the entire home purchase process, great communication during the search, timely on-going communication, he is very good listener and then asks thought provoking questions which insures you get what you really want. We were very confident using him and will recommend to my friends. ~Gaush S.
When my boyfriend and I first met Joe, he made us feel immediately confident in his expertise in the industry. He helped us in many ways to find our perfect home. With his attention to detail and his quick replies to our many questions, he helped us during the most important decision of which Home would suit our needs. Once we found a home we were interested in, he then was there every step of the way, with questions to the seller, walk-throughs of the home, going to the inspection, assisting with anything that our finance company or lawyers needed, and the closing. He has a great personality and very intuitive with clients' priorities. We are very appreciative that is our agent, and would call him for any of our future real estate needs. We highly recommend Joe to help you with any real estate needs. ~Tina & Matt
Joe was incredible from the beginning! He was so patient with us in our slow process of finishing up readying our home for the market. The stager he hired was absolutely perfect! Our home had never looked more beautiful than it did after everything Joe and the stager recommended we do. He was very thorough in his analysis of our home in telling us what he thought we could list our home at. His communication was always clear and timely throughout the entire process, never leaving us wondering what the next step should be, and he was always cool as a cucumber even during times of extreme stress. He knew just everything to say to ease our minds in those moments. If we had stayed in the area, we absolutely would only ever hire Joe again for any real estate needs. We can't imagine hiring anyone else! You absolutely will not regret hiring Joe! ~Katrina S.
I had the good fortune of meeting Joe Teceno when I made an appointment to see my first property in the Westborough area on a search to find a new home for my children. Joe's easy demeanor, affable personality and listening skills, coupled with his knowledge of the real estate market are the makings for a great sales agent. He was flexible with schedulings, available always, and respectful of my budget.
My budget dictated that I'd be looking at a "fixer-upper," and time and again Joe made solid recommendations and offered ideas on adaptions to existing conditions in each home he showed. Joe was at all times - professional, detailed and organized. I looked at multiple homes with him in May and June and had a closing on our home before the end of the month (June). We are thrilled with our purchase and very grateful to Joe.
My children, friends and mother have all commented on Joe's demeanor and work ethic throughout this search. He made a seamless effort to know names and remember details, and I think we all felt that he listened to our wants and needs - and met them.
Buying a house with Joe's help was easier for me than buying my daughter's prom dress! ~Melissa G.
When the time came to list our house we interview a short list of 3 agents each provided a marketing and sales plan for my property all were very professional. However Joe's proposal and personal presentation stood out well above the other competing agents. Not only did Joe orchestrate the entire process he photographed the property as well as part of his listing service and his work was/is stunning! I contribute his photographs as a key element in drawing the right buyers to view the property. Joe was always quick to follow up, early for every appointment and showing and made it his personal business to insure every showing was perfect! If you are serious about selling your home you need a serious business partner I found Joe to be this and more. ~Fred B.
I had a wonderful experience working with Joe on the sale of my Walker Meadow Condo. His photos were beyond exceptional for the many web sites that he advertises his listings in. It took only one Open House and one showing which brought a second and a sale. Joe enjoys working with folks and tries to eleviate some stresses. Joe enjoys his profession and it is evident. He likes to communicate by texting which documents all important facts. If you are looking for a top agent Joe is great choice. ~Helen K.
Joe is a great guy to work with he made the process of buying our new home smooth & stress free! I would highly recommend him! We will also be using him to sell our home. ~Kimmi & Johnny, Shrewsbury, MA
We commend Joe for his professionalism and expertise, Joe was very thorough and responsive, ensuring open communication and sound guidance throughout the home selling as well as the home buying process. We would highly recommend Joe and are extremely pleased with our overall experience! ~Beth & Greg
Joe represented us on the sale of our home. We interviewed two other local realtors before selecting Joe. While we were impressed with the other agent's experience and credentials, what impressed us the most about Joe is his professional demeanor and willingness to work under our terms and conditions on the sale of our home. Joe has an outstanding knowledge of the national and local real estate markets, and he never pressured us to reduce the price of our home. An additional bonus, Joe is an experienced photographer. His photos on the listing are impressive and truly showcase our home to prospective buyers. I would highly recommend Joe. ~James & Diane, Southborough, MA
Joe came prepared with detailed analysis of market for our specific unit. He was on top of every detail from beginning to end. We have bought and sold 6 houses in our 45 years and he exceeded every agent we have worked with. He helped us price the house right and we were in a new house in 46 days from signing the listing contract. ~Bob & Bonnie
Joe Teceno was incredible to work with. He helped me and my family find a great home in Uxbridge during our move from Pennsylvania. Without him, we were completely lost. He knows a lot about the area and was incredibly helpful from start to finish. He was really in tune with what our needs were and what we were looking for. Thanks again for all of your help. ~Brian & Kristin
We had the pleasure of working with Joe on both the sale of our home, as well as the purchase our new home over a period of about a year. Joe patiently and expertly advised on, and initially toured us through over a dozen homes. When we hit pause on our search for several months, there was no love lost and he was very professional and understanding. When we finally came ready to make the move, Joe was ready and willing to help us all the way. He brought a wealth of knowledge on how to get our home 'sale ready' and in the best presentation shape possible, and truly went above and beyond in helping us fine tune the details. It really helped that he was able to pinpoint which adjustments and investments in our home would be worth the effort for a return. He was encouraging and patient, but also straightforward when it came to our sellers (and buyers for that matter) anxiety and impatience during the process. For purchasing our new home, again Joe was highly responsive, quick to book and attend viewings with us, and a great resource in determining the finer details. He was able to provide information about towns which were new to us, and highlighted important onsite things worth considering such as the various conditions of the home (layout, appliances, utilities, age) and lot. He communicated clearly and conveniently based on our availabilities and hunted us down when needed to complete important steps in the very busy process of selling/buying homes while managing day to day life, and was gracious and friendly all the while. In addition to being a huge asset in making the sale and purchase of our homes a great experience, Joe is simply a truly sincere, friendly, smart, funny and engaging person who is great to be around. ~Tasha & Troy
Joe was my realtor that was tasked to help me buy a home in Westborough, MA. From day one, Joe was a pleasure to speak with. He answered all my calls and responded to all my questions in a well professional manner. He was always accessible, and willing to help in any possible way to make the buying/selling process easier. He was very knowledgeable about the market and knew exactly what we were looking for. He helped me and my family throughout the whole process of buying my recent purchase of a condo. I would highly recommend Joe as a realtor for anyone that is buying or selling in the Westborough/Northboro/Southboro/Shrewsbury/Grafton area. ~Mohammed
Joe Teceno is the man! He knows what to do and when to do it. The road was bumpy for us but Joe and his trusty group of associates got the job done. You need a competent professional to guide this thing along and Joe turned out to be all that and a bag of chips. Many thanks. ~Tom & Liz
Joe Teceno helped me with my first house purchase. His professionalism, knowledge, dedication, honesty and true advise helped us make the right decision. Joe has helped us beyond just buying a house, he has provided us the information about Lawyer, contractor, handyman etc.. We truly appreciate his help from the bottom of our heart and recommend his services to anyone who is looking for a house. We feel blessed to find Joe as our Realtor and call him our friend now. Thank you ~Haroon
Joe was awesome to work with. He is experienced, knowledgeable, endlessly patient, honest and thorough. He was also very flexible in scheduling time to show our home. Overall, he made the whole stressful process of selling a home a lot easier and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. ~Sampath
Joe is an outstanding Real Estate professional! Joe took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for. He was very patient and was willing to spend whatever time was necessary to help me find the right home. Joe is highly knowledgeable of the market and an outstanding negotiator. Joe is a true professional and has my highest recommendation!! Joe not only handled the purchase of my home but the recent sale as well. Joe worked diligently and had a great strategy to market it. House sold within 1 week and had multiple offers! I moved out of state and Joe did so many things to make sure the sale closed and with no issues. Thank you Joe! ~George
Joe is a fabulous realtor and I'd recommend him to anyone. He represented the sellers for a home my husband and I were purchasing and because we didn't have a buyer's broker he acted as a great liaison on our behalf. Our home purchase went off without a hitch and it was all because of Joe! If you have any doubts about Joe, please don't! He's awesome! ~Regina & Ruel
Joe did an amazing job guiding us through the process and finding our dream home. He is truly a gentleman and always had our best interest in mind as a buyer. I will definitely work with him again! His local knowledge and contacts in the real estate business (contractors, lawyers, etc...) is top notch. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family. ~Jason
We have been interested in this particular lake front property for 4 years . It was not lived in for as long and was not listed for sale. We have contacted many realtors thru the years as to find out who owns this house and if they are interested in selling with poor results . Then we met Joe , as he was showing us another property we told him of this home.... he researched it that night and called us back the very next day. Joe not only found out who owned the property but spoke to the owner informing him that we are very interested in buying this home and have been for 4 years! Much to our amazement, the owner agreed to sell !!!! Thankyou Joe, we never could have done this without you ~Karen
I ma a first time buyer. Joe Teceno helped me not only to select a house but also to resolve multiple issues in the process. At one instance bank representatives got stuck and didn't know what to do, and Joe organized a conference to figure these things out. Without him, the process could be blocked and I could have not bought my condo. I highly recommend Joe Teceno as a gentle and knowledgable professional. ~Peter
Hi Joe - I can assure that during the first 5 minutes of our meeting I fully realized who you are. I don't have to buy 3 homes from you to know the extent of your professionalism & your awareness in sales marking techniques & methodology, but what made me become your fan is your personality, your skills & not shying away to seek the potential customer's opinion no matter what kind of input you might received from them. I think our personalities are a perfect match, if you could overlook my lengthy stories .
See you tomorrow. ~Mark
We met Joe about two years ago. We told Him we weren't in a hurry to buy a house, but if he found the right house for us we'd buy it. He took us to many houses, all of the houses were great but for one reason or another not the right one. He was very patient with us. Finally after two years we found the right house and we recently closed and moved in. We love the house and Joe was very helpful through out the whole process. He's prompt with call backs and always on time. He's some one you can count on and looks out for your best interests. ~Victor
My wife and I have purchased six houses over the last 23 years and have not had a better experience than with Joe Teceno. We were relocating from Colorado to Massachusetts and had many questions and requests during the house finding process. Joe was always there to answer questions or to give suggestions on what we should ask for in making our offer. Besides being a tremendous agent Joe is even a better person. Very enjoyable to be around and makes everyone feel at ease during a stressful time in your life. I could not recommended Joe enough. ~Tom & Carrie
Joe's easy to work with and was helpful throughout the process of selling our home. From staging, to pictures to the closing everything went smoothly. I'd highly recommend Joe. ~Sheila
We had the pleasure of working with Joe for the sale of our home. Joe was easy to work with and very helpful through the entire process - from the initial staging of the house to the final closing. We would gladly recommend him to anyone thinking about putting their home on the market. Thanks Joe! ~Barbara
Joe was very helpful and clearly understood our needs. He went out of his way to supply suggestions, lots of service contacts, house options, location info and any other important information. Joe made the process easy to understand. I would highly recommend him and will certainly ask for his support again. Thanks so much Joe!! ~Carolina
Joe is a great agent with whom to work. He knows the area, the values and he knows building. He spent a lot of time with us in our search and supported us as we explored alternatives. We've known and worked with many realtors over many years. Joe is one of the best we know. We recommend him highly. ~Wayne & Claudia
My husband and I chose Joe Teceno as our realtor because our daughter was happy with the service he provided her family moving from NY to Upton. Joe was a blessing to us as we navigated the new world of MA. We were moving after 38 years in one home in Flushing, NY. He took us to homes that seemed right for us. In the end, he guided us through the building of a home in a new development in Bellingham. Joe also provided information that led me to a terrific chiropractor, took wonderful pictures of our house in different stages, and kept encouraging us when we suffered through 4 extensions of our closing. Joe listened to our needs and guided us to the best house for us. We are very thankful to have had him at our side. ~Pete & Barbara
My wife and I had no idea what to expect when we decided to sell our home. But Joe Teceno of Mathieu Newton Sotheby’s International Realty instilled confidence in us from the day we asked him to represent us. At every turn thereafter, he clearly knew precisely what to do, precisely when to do it, and precisely how to keep everyone happy. The result? In just 39 days, he had us closing on our home and receiving the full asking price! Obviously, he was the perfect agent for us. But we definitely have many other reasons for writing this testimonial. Among them is Joe’s “character.” Each and every day, he exhibited the highest standards of integrity, decency, and reliability. He also displayed acute intelligence, attention to detail, and common sense. In addition, he was always ready with answers, took care of all the nitty-gritty essentials, and worked unbelievably long hours to get the results we wished. So, need an agent who is true to his word? Joe is the person. Need an agent who always does the right thing—Joe is also the one. In each and every way, he exceeded all our wishes. We enthusiastically recommend him, therefore, without qualification and, if we could, we would rate him 6 stars on a 5 star scale. He is absolutely the best there is! ~Ray
We wanted to write a letter regarding our experiences with Joe Teceno our realtor. My wife and I were relocating from Alberta, Canada to the Metro-West Boston area. This was a big move for our family with many of the variables unknown to us. We were referred to Joe and his agency by a colleague who had used Mike Mathieu (agency principal) in a previous transaction and was well pleased with his experience. Our experience with Joe was wonderful in every aspect. So much so I felt compelled to write this letter. We found Joe to very knowledgeable of the area and up to date with what was going on in each neighborhood or town. Likely in total we spent 10 dedicated days with Joe as we were able to travel to the area. His willingness to help us with every detail and explanation of the homes and areas was invaluable. We would never have expected this type of service from a real estate agent based on my past experiences and from the experiences of others. Joe facilitated the lawyer, home inspection, radon testing, well testing, contract negotiations, town deed inquiries, transportation to the showings, transportation around prospective neighborhoods. If he didn't know something he found out. Basically every detail was attended to. The majority of these details were coordinated remotely with myself from Canada. We found Joe to be alive to our concerns, likes and dislikes. He worked very well with the other agents in the area and was well received by them. Joe was very honest and impartial when it came to picking the homes and negotiating terms. He had excellent strategies and provided a rational sounding board for ideas. Joe also brings unique perspectives to the job based on his past life experiences and his realtor history. We would strongly recommend Joe as a realtor to anyone and use him again for our next transaction. We were happy to have met him and made his acquaintance. We both wish he and his family all the best. ~Roger & Kimberly
Joe is an absolute pleasure to work with. He pays great attention to the needs of his clients, is highly knowledgeable, patient, thorough, friendly and responsive I highly recommend him and would work with him in my future endeavors as I told Joe, He is my forever realtor :) P.S. He is a brilliant photographer. ~Kinnari
Pleased with Joe Teceno is being modest. I would highly recommend him in the sale or purchase of your home. Joe took care of both in my case and we had several offers on my place and accepted one within the first 21 days of being on the market. At the same time I had been shown a place I fell in love with that we were also able to negotiate a price I was happy with. I closed on both the same day with Joe by my side. He always returned my calls in a timely manner and had answers or would get them to me in a short time. Most important to me was that Joe made me feel like I was in good honest hands and today I can say the feeling was true, great man and great character. ~Cynthia
Joe is a really authentic person who really put the time in to find us the types of properties we were looking for and was always flexible to meet with us when our schedules allowed it. He keep our needs in mind and provided insightful advice whenever we asked. Joe is absolutely fantastic to work worth and I would highly recommend him to anyone who will listen. ~Meagan
Joe was great! We were relocating from out of state. Joe spent several hours with us on Saturdays, driving all over to show us homes that he had picked out and homes that we requested to see. He is very friendly and personable. He answered our many questions patiently and explained how things worked here in MA. From the first time we met him until we closed on our new home, we were extremely comfortable with Joe. ~Alison
Joe spent a lot of time helping my family find the right house. We moved from out-of-state and spent many hours at a time house-hunting, as we needed to make the most of each trip to MA. He was quite helpful, showing us houses we picked out as well as selections of his own. I would recommend Joe! ~James
Joe did the photography for me on this home. He is a pleasure to work with all around. He takes beautiful photos, provides them in a timely manner, works well with the homeowners, etc. I would highly recommend Joe! ~Melissa
I wanted to send a short note to thank you Joe for helping me with placing my home on the market. I had so much anxiety about this but felt much at ease after you addressed my several concerns. Not only were you informative, but you took the time to fully explain the process and even set me up with a home stager which was great!! My house has not looked this good in years. I can’t forget to mention all the patients you had with my noisy, noisy dogs -- most people would have ran! Last of all Joe, I want you to know that I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends and family due to your honesty and dedication. Take care and have a wonderful holiday. ~Cindy
I couldn't endorse Joe enough. He has been extremely knowledgeable and responsive. If you have ever dealt with a realtor, you can appreciate when every call and email is responded to immediately. Joe is thorough, intelligent, patient and I would recommend him to anyone looking to either buy or sell a home. ~Greg
Joe is a very honest and straight forward person. Easy to get along with and very knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to work with him. ~Paul
Joe has been extraordinary to work with. He can literally get me answers to any questions within minutes whereas I would have to wait days with other agents. He is very professional and has a great understanding of the market and how it is changing. I cannot recommend Joe enough and I can honestly say I would send my close family members to him for any of their real estate needs. ~Dan
Joe is a consummate professional. He works very hard and is caring about his clients and co-workers. He is a very dedicated individual and has a strong knowledge of real estate and the area. He has an engaging personality and effectively relates to all clients. ~Gerry
