    I have been happily serving clients as an agent and sales manager in the Real Estate profession for just over 15 years, bringing over 33 years of experience in construction, management and sales. I take pride in going out of my way to make sure my clients, buyers, and sellers alike, are well-informed as they navigate real estate transactions together. Simply put, I'm the "know-how" that is essential to get things done the right way. Teamwork is a value that I keep at the top of my list. If there is a question I cannot answer, I will leverage my many connections with contractors, inspectors, governmental contacts, appraisers, and fellow agents to arrive at a solution. Additionally, growing up in Cecil County on Maryland's Eastern Shore gives me a distinct advantage in the market. My passion and love for the area, coupled with my understanding and knowledge of the unique water-oriented towns and communities in the region make me your number one choice as a buyer or seller. My years of Management and Sales took me over the entire Tri-State area for many years, and that knowledge of the area assists me well as I handle Real Estate transactions throughout Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Aside from Real Estate, my interests include politics and spending time with friends and family. Currently residing in the quaint town of Cecilton, Maryland with my wife Carrie, and I served as the Town's Mayor from 2011 to 2021. My daughter, Greer is a manager for Olympia Sports while my two sons, Joe and Jason, currently reside and are employed in Cecil County, and remain active in the community serving as local sports coaches.

    Sandra and Randy gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    I initially contacted Joe to represent my sister and I in the sale of our father's estate because of his reputation as a devoted family man and highly respected citizen in the community. He and my husband knew each other from their high school days, and Joe's sons had been high school classmates and football/baseball teammates of our sons. My husband always thought of Joe as a "great guy," and our casual friendship through our sons' mutual school and sports events further reinforced that impression in my mind. My sister and I couldn't have been happier with our experience working with Joe. His knowledge and competence, as well as Joe's friendly and compassionate demeanor, helped us through the emotionally difficult task of selling our recently deceased parents' home. We would, without reservation, highly recommend anyone seeking a real estate agent to consider Joe Zang. His availability, honesty, professionalism, and down-to-earth nature will help you to seamlessly navigate the sale/purchase of your home.

    Susan gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    Joe was a godsend, at a very difficult time in my family's life, after losing our parents - we can't thank him enough. The decision to sell their home was most difficult, but Joe understood. He put our minds at ease and took a great deal of responsibility off our shoulders. We were very impressed with his knowledge of the area, in addition to his professionalism and candor, in handling each step throughout the process. Joe was consistently available, whenever we had questions or concerns, and just as equally responsive to us. Joe worked honestly and diligently on our behalf. He is obviously dedicated to his trade, but even more so, it's quite evident that he sincerely loves what he does. We've made a very good friend in Joe.

    How do we begin to express our gratitude for Mr. Joe Zang??? Mr. Zang is 1 in a million!!! We sold our house in Maryland with him he was with us through the whole process and even with some issues he never left our sides.

He is extremely knowledgeable in what he does, cares for his clients and if you are lucky enough like we were we became 'family'. We would recommend Joe Zang to everyone we know. Also, he is a true asset to the community always trying to help others and has a great heart ♥¸ Joanie and Bernie Walsh

    Joe was always willing to show us any property even though what we were looking for was unique. We finally found it and Joe helped us close the deal then sold our previous home in a few days after being listed. Communication was great no matter day or night. and all our questions were always answered.

    Paula gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    Joe was very in tune with not only the real estate logistics but my wishes as well. He tried several avenues to sell the property and even when I got frustrated he continued to work diligently and was very supportive. His professionalism and availability to answer questions was greatly appreciated.

    Eya and Matt gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    Joe is amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable about the area. He stayed with us through the entire process from search to moving in. He is so connected to the area that he has great references to help with anything from appraisals to dock building to pest control. He is also persistent. We would not have closed the deal without him.

    Overall we were very happy with Joe and the results he produced. He definitely knows the local market. He took the time to coordinated some of the smaller, but important things needed in order to close on the house. He always took the time to explain things that were either not clear or we were not familiar with. His communication was outstanding - always responding in a timely manner. He kept a positive outlook during the sale process and never pressured us to make a decision we weren't comfortable with. I would highly recommend Joe as your realtor.

    We are very happy with our decision to work with Joe on our first home purchase. He made us feel comfortable with all of our questions whether in person, by phone, or text. He always made himself available when we wanted to see a home. He kept us in the loop and advocated for us while under contract. Even after closing of our home, Joe was phone call away. Would highly recommend!

    Donna gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    Donna and I thank Joe Zang for his selling our home of 33 years. Others tried but failed. The fact that he is well respected by so many and his knowledge of our home area, the people and their skill sets, and his kindness are all assets that helped all involved, sellers and buyers. His ideals helped in staging and correcting items on the inspection report and disposing of unneeded furniture, and household junk. We thank him for his friendship and helping us start a new chapter in our life.

    Russ gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    We were so fortunate to have found Joe Zang when we were looking to move from MD to DE. As our Realtor, he helped us sale our house in MD in a very fast manner. Then Joe helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price. He was very patient with us as we look for a new house in a very popular part of DE. In short, he was always on our side working to make our house sale and purchase as simple and successful as possible. The best part about working with Joe was that he was always more focused on answering our questions, giving us good advice, and finding homes that met our needs than he was on closing a deal. We would recommend him to anyone.

    Joe was my realtor for selling my first home and buying my current home. And that speaks volumes. You can trust Joe to represent you on both sides of the home buying or selling experience. He is knowledgeable and will guide you through the entire process honestly and effectively. I highly recommend Joe without a doubt.

    Lisa, thank you for allowing me to work with you. We have known each other for a very long time and it means so much that you trusted me with the sale of your 1st home and the purchase of your current home. AND my son Jason and I are now assisting your son with the purchase of his 1st home. I feel truly blessed.

    If you are looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and most importantly personable real estate agent, Joe Zang should be your choice! My husband and I had no experience with Joe prior to buying our new home, and in hindsight we could not have asked for a better person to work with! Joe walked us through every step of the negotiation and settlement process. When it was all said and done, Joe was not only our realtor, he was our friend.
    Response from Joe

    Joe Zang was there for us from the moment we decided to sell our home through the closing. He advised us on a price range to accomplish our goal. Joe's connections with the local businesses helped us to get the necessary repairs & upgrades completed in a timely fashion. In addition, Joe knows how to deal with county and state agencies in obtaining permits and approvals. As first time home sellers; Joe promptly answered all our calls & emails. Joe Zang will receive our highest recommendation as a real estate agent.

    So glad we finally made this happen. I know there were several times when it seemed as though it may not. I always have faith in what I know, who I know and how I can leverage my abilities to make things happen. Over the years, I have assembled a tremendous amount of resources. And those resources become your resources when you allow me to work with you! AGAIN... I appreciate the opportunity!

    Alan gave Joe 5 stars out of 5
    Joe is well known in Cecil county and know the area extremely well. I have never meet anyone that knows Eastern Shore of Cecil Country as well as he does. Besides his knowledge of the area, he also knows real estate and the process of buying and selling homes. The sale of my home was not the standard process, but Joe knew how to make it work. He put me in touch with the right people and my house was sold. Both me and the buyers are very happy. I don't think you can ask for more.

    Hello Alan, it was my pleasure to work with you! Yes, it was not a standard process, but I knew we could put together a plan to make it work. Thanks for having faith in me. I hope all is well in California!!!

    We've worked with Joe for the purchase and sale of two houses. He knows the area so well and is able to give fair assessments on houses, locations and neighborhoods based on personal experience. His low key, non-pressure attitude made buying, selling and buying again pleasurable!

    09/11/18
    Cyndi and Mike, I can't thank you enough for allowing me the opportunity to serve you. In this business you can simply work with some people or you can actually forge a relationship with people. I feel as though we have created something that is very important, and I am thankful for that...

    It has been a pleasure to work with Joe. When we decided to relocate to Maryland, he was patient and responsive to all of our requests and questions. He never rushed us at a property and happily showed us every property we asked about, even when we thought we had made a decision. We valued his input on all aspects of our purchase. We would definitely work with Joe again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!

    Preparing a relative's property for sale when you are 1-3/4 hours away and in a different state can be a momentous challenge. Joe Zang was wonderful to work with and very responsive to inquiries ... including help with local contractors for estimates and access to the job site for work required. The process was definitely simplified with his expertise and assistance.

    Buying or selling a home is serious business, requiring legal and financial savvy. Joe Zang is the person I call when buying or selling Real Estate. Joe has been handling my Real Estate needs for 14 years. High integrety, organizational skills, professionalism, industry knowledge and hard work are just a few of the trails I would use to describe Joe Zang when making a referral. Buying and Selling Real Estate can be stressful, or you can call Joe Zang and leave the worrying to him. (A+). Thanks Joe!

    As first time home buyers, the home buying process seemed overwhelming, but Joe made the process seamless. He was patient and answered our many questions and never made us feel inferior. He truly was in the buying process with us and to help us every step of the way. Through his experience, Joe offered support and guidance to ensure we were making a purchase that best fit our needs and wants. Even after closing, he has been available to offer recommendations for repair companies, answer questions about a home warranty, etc. Joe made himself available to us day and night, seven days a week, and helped us find our perfect forever home.

    Joe Zang III is hands down the best Realtor we've ever worked with. He is personable, proactive, extremely knowledgeable about the area, and perhaps most important, he really listens to his clients ~ Joe's goal is to find you the house you want, not just to sell you a house. We worked with him for over a year, touring many houses, often on weekends, & could tell by his comments that he was invested in the process, & had our best interests at heart. We had one deal that fell through due to issues we discovered during the inspection. There were no hard feelings ~ Joe immediately hit the ground running with more houses for us to see. The house we wound up buying is one we'd gone back to look at several times, & Joe was always willing to take another look, or make some phone calls to be sure our questions got answered. He's continued to be helpful even after closing, with recommendations for local contractors, etc.. We would highly recommend him!

    Joe Zang was our agent who helped us sell Keith's Dad's farm. Joe understood how difficult this was for Keith and helped us find buyers who would maintain the integrity of the property and be as he said "good stewarts" of the land. Keith and I are forever grateful to Joe for his knowledge, compassion and professionalism during that difficult time.

    Will There Be A Real Estate Market in 2022?

    Will there be a real estate market in 2022? The answer depends on whether you are a Buyer or a Seller. Here's the skinny: there is no inventory. That's not hyperbole. That's a fact:These numbers include the career listings: the overpriced, the falling down the houses that only a mother could love. The nice properties - the phat pads, and the fully updated and low-maintenance gems – get sold in 0 days on market. The "market" never sees them. If you're a seller, 2022 is going to be ...
