I worked with Joe Gillach when I was moving from Boston to San Francisco for work. Best apartment search process I have ever been through – and I have done it quite a few times. I only had 2 days on the ground in San Francisco and Joe was able to schedule 15 apartment viewings before they went to open house. Joe did an incredible job focusing in on exactly what I was looking for. As an added bonus, we had a lot of fun with Joe for the two days we were with him! We learned a lot about San Francisco in a short period of time. Joe is knowledgeable, professional and very detail oriented. He has managed all the logistics and paperwork. I would 100% recommend Joe and Progressive to anyone trying to navigate the San Francisco real estate market! (Hopefully as evidenced by the fact that this is my FIRST Yelp review ever)
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Joe Gillach at Progressive over the last year or so and will continue to utilize his professional services in the future. I was challenged with an assignment to provide temporary housing for three families in San Francisco on relatively short notice. As most folks are aware the SF rental market is highly competitive and restrictive. Through Joe’s excellent market knowledge and sage advice we were able to present ourselves competitively to landlords while competing with rival tenants. We were able to successfully place all three families in housing that met all of their needs. Joe always goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is in the communication loop and his thoroughness allows me to focus on other tasks. As it turned out we rented three units that weren’t managed by progressive and I received compliments from the landlords on Joe’s professionalism and diligence. I will be utilizing his services over the next few years and I wouldn’t consider using anyone else!
