A native of Willow Glen, Joey was raised from an early age to have a strong and dedicated work ethic. He grew up immersed in the entrepreneurial spirit shown by both his grandfather, former owner of La Villa, an Italian deli in Willow Glen, as well as his father, a well-known Willow Glen contractor and business owner. The knowledge he gained from these two dedicated and successful businessmen helped to shape Joey’s impressive career in real estate.

Joey Portale embodies the perfect realtor and is so much more. He became therapist and friend as my three siblings and I took on the task of selling our family home. Joey’s easy going presence belies an attention to detail that is so important in home sales and purchasing. He made great recommendations that made an older home vibrant. He determined the minimal changes needed.The project came in under budget and was completed before we expected. He coordinated all the work and the staging he arranged was stunning. The house sold within 3 days of the Open House. From listing through sale, he kept us informed of every step. His work ethic is stellar and he is just a really nice guy. He seemed unflappable throughout this extremely emotional task. Joey Portale was highly recommended to us and now we have the opportunity to recommend him to others. Call him! Thank you, Joey. We appreciate the time and the care you took with our family. You exceeded our expectations.

Working with Joey was everything we hoped it would be. When my wife and I reached out to him to help us find our first home, we knew very little about the whole process. He skillfully guided us through the experience and never pressured us into any decision. He knew how to work with a small budget. Joey is also a well networked person and always seems to be in good position with other agents.

Working with Joey was like hanging out with a longtime friend. He made the task of selling my home as well as my Mother’s home so easy. He is always extremely professional, gives great advice and always has time for any mundane question. He is a very patient and just a downright nice guy! I would highly recommend Joey, he is the best!

Joey is an extremely hard worker and will do anything it takes to make sure his clients are happy. He helped me purchase and sell my first condo. Both transactions were seamless and stress-free. There’s no question who I’m going to call when I find my next home. Joey is reliable, organized, professional, trustworthy and knows his stuff. Thanks for the excellent service, Joey!

My husband and I couldn’t be happier with the experience of the sale of our ‘home’ of 34 years. He took a personal interest and treated us like family. We were always given true face to face contact. We never had to rely on just texting and phone conversations. He always went out of his way to take time to come over, sit down with us and discuss everything in detail. Each step of the way, we had ongoing updates from the decluttering to paint choices to showing the house. Every step was seamlessly calculated despite the bittersweet memories our family had with the move. Joey was meticulous in showing the potential of what our home meant to us and to the potential buyers.


Susie & Chuck Brand

The time of year we put our house on the market had specific challenges. After interviewing three Realtors, we chose Joey to represent our interests as he was the most professional and had the best marketing plan. His photographer did an excellent job so the brochures and online presence made our home look its finest. Joey facilitated the last touches we needed through his network of highly skilled contractors to make our house the most appealing when comparing it to other homes in the area.We felt he provided excellent guidance during the whole process and he clearly had our best interests in mind. We highly recommend Joey and would work with him again without a second thought.
