"Joseph was able to get me everything I wanted and more. For starters, he was able to get two competing offers on the house I was selling the same day it went on the market and I ended up getting significantly more than the asking price. Then when it came to buying a new house, he was able to get us the house of our dreams for an amazing price. We are super thankful to Joseph for his hard work and dedication he gives to all of his clients."
-- Tom G.
"Joseph is the best! Highly recommend him! We sold and purchased homes with him and it couldn't have been an easier process!"
-- Heather L.
"Joseph and his assistant Jainine were amazing through the whole process of selling our house. Very knowledgeable, friendly and driven! If you are looking to sell or buy a home, I highly recommend you go with someone on the Dalton Elite team you will not be disappointed. Thank you again Joseph and Jainine for an easy and great experience."
-- Amanda R.
"The Dalton Elite team surpassed every expectation during our home sale in Holly Ridge. Joseph is a true professional dedicated to his clients. At first I was skeptical because I thought the initial price he recommended was low, but he explained every facet of analysis that he considers for pricing and it was clear that he knows exactly how to get things moving quickly. Our home was listed and sold before the official pictures were hung. Jainine was amazing and kept us up to date with everything that was happening throughout the entire transaction. The only bad experience was with the buyer's title company. You can count on the Dalton team doing everything by the book even if the other side tries to cut corners!"
-- Kyle S.
"We could not have asked for a better experience with selling our house thanks to Joseph Dalton and his team. He was able to get our house under contract without it even hitting MLS. The entire process from start to finish was wonderful. Joseph and his team are very knowledgeable and were always there to answer our many questions. HIGHLY recommend using Joseph."
-- Ryan K.
"We can not say enough good things about Joseph and his team. They made the entire process of selling our home an easy one. They were very knowledgeable and were always there to answer our questions. Even when we didn't have questions Joseph or his team would reach out to make sure we didn't need anything. Our house went from Coming soon to SOLD flawlessly thanks to Joseph and his team!"
-- Samantha K.
"Amazing amazing I don't have words to say how amazing Dalton is!!!! We had another Realtor and she had our house for a year and nothing happened. Dalton had our house for less then 20 days and our house got an offer 5k above asking price!!!!!! If you want your house sold he's the guy to do it. Him and his entire team are amazing!!!"
-- Cassie H.
"Joseph from the start told me to trust him and that'd he'd show me how a real Realtor works, especially after the mess I had with [a competing Firm]. After less than 20 days he not only sold the house but got more than asking price as he told me earlier. I cannot thank him and the Dalton Elite Team enough. You guys are amazing! If you want a Realtor that keeps you informed and has your best interest at heart, I wouldn't hesitate for a single second. Go with Joseph and the Dalton Elite Team, they will 1,000% do right by everyone they represent. Thank you again Joseph and thank you to the Dalton Elite Team for such an amazing and easy experience, I can't say that enough."
-- Stephen H.
"Joseph knows the market, sets proper expectations, and over delivers."
-- Michael L.
"Joseph was highly recommended by a close friend and I hired him to sell my house. Although I was initially somewhat hesitant, I followed his recommendations after we established a trust. He priced the house right and is very knowledgeable of the market. The house sold at I price I expected!!! Jainine (Transaction Coordinator) was super helpful all the time. The team was always very responsive."
-- Tim A.
"Tara is effective and efficient in addressing clients needs. Tara never tried to sell us a house but rather found us a home."
-- Marilyn O.
"We can only give it to God in pointing us in the right direction when it came down to choosing to buy our first home. The moment felt right, the choice of home felt right, and the realtor to assist us through this first home buying process was right! Joseph Dalton, first off, has integrity. He was upfront, answered every question we had, went above and beyond with our requests, and guided us through every single step of the process! He even provided free home-buying 101. =) We bought our home, all the way from Hawaii…but the whole experience was right for us. Thank you Joseph for your integrity and hard work. May you be blessed in all your future endeavors! You have our support and will recommend you to anyone who needs a realtor in the future."
-- Fame V.
"Tara was extremely helpful, patient and thorough! She went above and beyond to ensure I got the house I loved. I truly appreciated all the hard work she put into this process especially with my tough work schedule. There is no way I could have made it through this process without her help and guidance. "
-- Patty K.
"A man of his word with a great work ethic. A realtor that understands the individuality of each buyer and seller. I couldn't speak more highly of him if he were a friend or family member, but even though we hired him as just a realtor he is SO MUCH MORE than "just a realtor,". This guy helps people!"
-- Elizabeth K.
"Awesome agent to do business with!"
-- Brian O.
"When he says he will sell your house, I’m telling you, he WILL sell your house – trust him!"
-- Brian M.
"[Tara] is the best Realtor in our area!! She is friendly knowledgeable and worked with my boyfriend and I (he was TAD in Cali). I recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. She took the crazy and scary out of first time home buying!"
-- Maddy B.
"Exceptional communicator throughout the entire process! Kept his word to keep us informed and bring us great offers! True professional!"
-- Regina K.
"We can't speak highly enough of our experience with Joseph. We are first-time homebuyers with limited knowledge about home buying. Without Joseph's help we definitely wouldn't have been able to capitalize on such a great new construction deal with many great extras he was able to negotiate for us. He helped to take the pressure off of us by answering all of our questions and advocating for us every step of the way! Thank you for everything! We recommend him to all of our family and friends in the coastal Carolina area!"
-- Kelsey K.

From his initial contact all the way through closing the deal, Joseph works hand in hand with his clients to ensure that they have a current, realistic assessment of market conditions and the steps needed to accomplish their goals. Throughout the process, he provides regular updates and is available day and night to answer questions. Joseph draws upon a stable of proven specialists who know houses and the area, and can rapidly address urgent requirements in order to wrap up a deal. A professional who exemplifies the precise reasons a client seeks out a quality agent, Joseph Dalton has earned my confidence as a leader who delivers results."
-- Brian C.
"Joseph has the passion to negotiate the best win possible for his clients and the energy to do it every day! The best real estate professional in the area!!"
-- Jeff R.
"It is with great pleasure that we give this testimonial for the services we received from Dalton Elite. It has been our pleasure working with Joseph Dalton. He is a true professional. We previously had our home listed under a different realtor for six months and he made zero progress with the showing/selling of our home. We did not get one single offer. From the day he pulled into our driveway, we knew we were in the capable hands of a man who took his job seriously and was attentive to our needs and conducted himself in a businesslike manner. Joseph kept us informed throughout the entire process of showing and the eventual selling of our house. Our friends and neighbors were amazed how quickly we sold our home once Joseph showed up. They are now asking for his services. We are now recommending him to all our friends who want to sell their homes now or in the near future. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone if they want their home sold. Joseph gave us many pointers on how to show the home and brought in a professional photographer who posted pictures with Joseph’s listing. We were pleasantly surprised how well the home looked on Dalton Elite’s website and soon got many people stopping by to view our home. We would gladly share our experiences with anyone concerning the outstanding job Joseph did with the marketing and selling of our home."
-- Steve T.
"Joseph was a wonderful realtor to work with. He is very professionally aggressive and promises to sell in a very quick fashion and definitely follows through. He will work as hard as you will to sell your house. If you are looking for a realtor who is ready to get down to business, he's the guy for you! He is certainly in the market of selling houses, not just listing them."
-- Nick S.
"We were very pleased with his efficiency and how quickly his home sold. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a very professional and aggressive realtor! We will definitely use in the future."
-- Alexandra B.
"Mr. Dalton is a wonderful realtor and person. He worked closely with my family to sell our waterfront property. The struggling market did not intimidate Mr. Dalton and his diligence to find the right buyer paid off. Dalton Elite has earned my respect and I recommend his services to everyone planning to buy or sell property. 5 Stars out of 5!"
-- Ronald L.
"Dalton Elite get my highest recommendation if you are looking to buy or sell property in the Wilmington NC area. Diligent, professional, and extremely responsive during the entire process. Not just a pro real estate agent, but a great human being who truly cares about making sure all parties are satisfied with the process. Many thanks to Joseph Dalton for his patience and diligence."
-- Ronald L.
"My wife and I were first time home buyers with many questions, concerns and specific wants for our new home. Joseph was not only able to find us a home we are thrilled with, but maintained a very personal touch throughout the process. Our move brought us across the country which made viewing homes much more difficult. Joseph went out of his way to show us properties via FaceTime when we could not see them personally. We felt he was 100% invested in finding the right home for us. For anyone looking to purchase a new home in the area, we absolutely recommend working with Joseph!"
-- Sam R.
"Working with Joseph made our home buying experience a great one! We moved from California to the Wilmington area which made the search that much more difficult. Joseph went out of his way to aid us in finding the perfect home both within budget and meeting our exhaustive wish list. It was clear from the beginning that he was very invested in us as clients. When we could not view a property personally, he was there with FaceTime to give us a tour. I highly recommend working with Mr. Dalton not only because of his knowledge, but also the personal touch he adds to the experience."
-- Kathleen R.
"In my lifetime I have sold five pieces of properties and none of those realtors could compare to you for being honest, truthful, and fair to me. Your kindness meant so much to me and that’s why I want to thank you for all you have done. Your professionalism and your appearance were superb. I definitely will recommend you to all my friends and acquaintances and also want to thank you for putting so much effort into selling my house."
-- Dorothy P.
"Joseph is an agent who truly works for the buyer. He will spend countless hours listening to your needs, getting to know you, and searching for the perfect home for you and your family. Not only is he knowledgeable and skilled at his job, but is he caring and takes that extra time to find exactly what you want. Working 24-7 for you, it will not take long for him to find your dream home. As new home buyers, we were unsure of the process and he was patient and informative throughout the entire experience. I am confident you will not find a more dedicated, skilled, and fun realtor."
-- Amanda P.
"Joseph did a great job of helping us sell our home. He brought interested potential buyers our way and guided us as we accepted an offer. He demonstrated professionalism, trustworthiness with a personal touch. We are glad he sought us out!!"
-- Jeff Rand
"Just Trust Him! Without a doubt that is the best advice I can give the perspective buyer/seller. Joe knows his stuff. He knows the area, the houses and the builders, and important to so many in this area, Joe knows the military move complexities. He honestly cares about what you want in a home and will find the right home for you vice pushing for the quick sale. I don't think I can give a better example than to tell you that we trusted Joe enough to buy our new home via Skype, with Joe showing us around while we were still in Colorado. We just finished moving in and Joe wasn't wrong...I just wish we had listened to him sooner."
-- Tim K.
"As first time homebuyers we had a ton of questions. Tara not only answered our questions but always got back to us with in a day. Tara devoted a lot of time looking for what we wanted to make sure we were satisfied and even did Skype showings of the homes before we got to the area. She seemed to work 7 days a week with us. I highly recommend Tara, she is awesome and a pleasure to work with!"
-- Victoria B.
"Joseph was a pleasure to work with; while being located across the country he was able to keep me informed of all things related to the house and was able to get me the deal I wanted. Great Job!"
-- Richard M.
"Our friends put us in touch with Joseph of Dalton Elite when they found out we were looking for a home in North Carolina. We had an initial meeting with Tara the day after we spoke with Joseph and were looking at homes with Tara just a few days after, which worked perfectly with our timeline. Tara was always on top of our home search and was very responsive to us, sometimes working late into the night to get us answers and documents we requested. Tara had great advice and information and was overall just a pleasure to work with. I will certainly be recommending her to friends looking to purchase homes in the area."
-- Gina F.
"My husband and I contacted Dalton Elite on a recommendation when we learned we'd be moving to North Carolina and we were then put in contact with Tara, who has been fantastic to work with. We were first time home-buyers with many questions and Tara was always very responsive, answering every question promptly and thoroughly. We were shopping from Hawaii as well, which added additional stress to our plate, but she gave us thorough video tours to help us feel confident about our choice and worked with our 6-hour time difference, even when that meant that she would be arranging and sending us paperwork late at night. By the time we arrived in North Carolina and saw our new home in person, we were just a few days from closing. She went far above and beyond our expectations, simplified and streamlined the process as much as possible for us, and was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home."
-- Alicia C.
"Joseph Dalton is top rate. You need to use him and his team for all of your real estate needs. Whether you are selling or buying, Dalton Elite is the right choice. Thank you, Joseph. Thank you so much Tara, for all of your hard work. We were very pleased with your exceptional service and your prompt attention to our every question or concern. We are happy to recommend you to our friends and family. Thank you again!"
-- Russ F.
"We want to thank Joseph for guiding us through the sale of our house. From the tenant from hell to getting things done, Joseph was always positive about getting our house sold! Thanks Joseph to you and your team."
-- Linda L.
"Our home buying experience was completely out of the ordinary. Tara kept adjusting to the changes and never once complained or refused to help with the new direction the sale was going. She is an amazing person and her personality shines through making the home buying experience enjoyable and comfortable. I highly recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home!"
-- Jack L.
"Yes, a 1 day sale with full asking price is possible! I first came across Dalton Elite when I noticed a change in for sale signs of a neighbors property. Their property was listed for nearly a year with another agency with no luck. Within a month of the Dalton Elite sign appearing in their yard a sold sign attached. I was shocked when I found out that it was due to the agent (Joseph) and not a price reduction. When it came time to sell our home I remembered the quick sale from around the corner and contacted Dalton Elite. Joseph came to evaluate the house prior to listing it; we had an idea of what the house was worth but thought the neighborhood and new construction in the area would limit us on our asking price and furthermore delay the sale. He showed us the comps in the area, noted the differences of interior and exterior finishes, built our confidence in our home, and reassured us that we had plenty of time for a sale. At this point Joseph had shown us that he was knowledgeable on the market in the area and was taking a personal interest in our sale. This is where it gets interesting... After being visible via MLS, ZILLOW, etc. for only 16 hours we had people in the house looking and by hour 19 we had an offer. After negotiations it ended up being a full price offer with a quick closing. Joseph is a top notch professional, and will no doubt be used for my future real estate needs in the eastern North Carolina area. Thank you again for the help and guidance. M&G"

"(Sorry folks, my testimony warrants a bit of back-story) In 2012 I was faced with the difficult decision to sell my home as a short sale. I attempted to go with a sale by owner; however, not too long after posting on a few sights (Zillow and Trulia among some online sites), I was visited by a realtor who assisted homeowners with short sales. The realtor worked closely with Wilde Law Firm who specialized in short sale cases (which is highly recommended because there are quite a few legalities involved that can often leave a seller at risk if the sale is not handled correctly). Unfortunately, I had to pull my home off the market at the time. Fast-forward to March/April 2015, when I was again faced with the decision to place my home on the market. At this time, I reached out to the realtor I previously worked with, but they were no longer practicing in my area; however, they referred me to Joseph Dalton and assured (and reassured) me he would handle my sale with equal proactive support, devotion, and assurance. When I contacted Joseph, he sensed my hesitation, and after giving me his (probably standard) pitch, he addressed my reservations without prompting. I cannot say enough how much I valued this because it told me he was perceptive and confident. He knew immediately what my concerns were and provided not only assurance of the right choice, but never pressured me one way or the other, he just simply laid out the pros and cons with all other thoughts, desires, or concerns aside. Honestly, it was what I needed. I spoke with a few other realtors who simply told me what I wanted to hear. Once Joseph laid out the hard facts, I knew he was the right choice. My situation was quite unique. In fact, I never met Joseph face-to-face (maybe one day Joseph haha), since I was in New York and the co-borrower was in Florida. My sale took a bit longer than we anticipated, so I talked with Joseph on a frequent basis and he was very patient to my situation (with handling documents and communication). Not only did he continue working, showing, and monitoring my property, but also kept me informed with probable dilemmas and again, highlighted risks and potential outcomes, without sugar coating anything. Was it always what I wanted to hear, no way, but he was honest, accurate, and committed to helping me sell my property. In fact, I am sure there were times when he wanted to strangle me for being that 'difficult' homeowner who could maybe comes across unreasonable at times. One of the perks with working with Joseph is he worked closely with Wilde Law Firm. Wilde Law Firm communicated regularly and worked diligently to close our property with the most positive outcome you could achieve from a short sale. Everyone was truly amazing, supportive, and persistent! If you read anything, read this: Joseph was meticulous, devoted, and extremely trustworthy. I recommend Joseph above all other realtors in the area. If you elect otherwise be cautious, because he is professionally aggressive and fights a good fight for whomever he represents, and he just may be on the other end of your deal. Thank you so much Joseph. It was a long haul, but we made it! : ) "

"Tara did a great job in helping us find our house. She is patient, professional, honest, and a pleasure to work with."
-- Tia B.
"Where do I begin? Joseph and his team not only meet our expectation but exceeded what we thought was possible. His agency sold our home within a few days. This was after hiring two large name agencies who were both unsuccessful in producing any offers. Joseph Dalton contacted us about becoming our new listing agent and at first we were a little skeptical, but Joseph and his team immediately put us at ease and explained that he could sell our house at market value. Before we knew Joseph assessed the listing and made some aggressive changes to the listing. Not only did it start generating potential buyers, but it renewed our hopes of selling the property. Our property was on the market 6 months before Joseph and his team took it over. Within 45 days the home sold for full asking price in a market that is extremely competitive with new construction. I have no doubt that without his aggressive nature and attention to detail we wouldn’t have sold our property this year. He is the “go to” agent in the Jacksonville NC area. I have recommended Joseph Dalton to two friends and both have offers on their homes. If you are looking for a strong agent in the local area contact Joseph Dalton at the Dalton Elite Team."
-- Carl H.
"Can't say enough about Joseph and the staff at Dalton Elite. They were always available for any questions no matter how small and always had great advice. Thanks for helping us with buying our lovely waterfront house."
-- Clayton and Maritza A.
"Tara from Dalton Elite was extremely kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. She was quick to respond to questions and never seemed annoyed or rushed. I needed to close quickly and she set up a preferable deadline and made miracles happen to get there. She made buying my first home a much greater experience than I thought it would be."
-- Chris P.
"We love Tara, she is such an exceptional agent. Tara made it easy for us to buy my mother her first home. Tara was so patient with all of our changes and request. She was always upbeat and very responsive to our emails or phone calls, many nights working late to insure we had all of our questions answered or necessary documents. Tara is very informative and always ready for the next step. Tara is such a pleasure to work with and we will be using Tara with our future real estate needs! We highly recommend Tara! "
-- Russell F

"If you have spent hours and hours conducting research on realtors like I did…… YOU WILL WANT TO READ THIS!! Five stars aren’t enough because truly, I would give Joseph Dalton with Dalton Elite Corporation an infinite number of stars, he and his team are truly professional and Elite in all aspects. ON MARKET FOR 4 DAYS, MULTIPLE OFFERS, UNDER CONTRACT WITH A BUYER, OFFERS WELL OVER MY ASKING PRICE?!!!! What more do you need to hear? Oh, I will gladly tell you MORE about how much you should choose Dalton Elite….. Describing Joseph Dalton with Dalton Elite in brief… “Elite” skills all around, very determined, top notch negotiator, knowledgeable, listens to what you want/need and makes it happen. “True Elite Magic,” is what I said to him. He’s a true hustler in real estate, runs non-stop, and has excellent communications!!!! I would like to share this story as this has been quite a journey for me in selling my house. I began after conducting quite a bit of research online on various realtors in the area. While I do have quite a bit of realtor friends of whom I trust, I didn't want to cross those ties between business and friendship. I also wanted someone of whom understands the military. If you have read Joseph's bio then clearly you will see that he understands military to its entirety... Not just him, his team are military veterans as well. The amount of networking he has with many other military realtors across the world is an excellent attribute to have when working in real estate. And it shows… I inquired online, directly from his website. Later that same day I received a phone call from his amazing assistant Jainine Collier whom became my sanity through the entire process. She was always there for me, keeping me up to speed as it had all gone very quickly. She responds to all of my questions and very easy to get a hold of when I needed her the most. I am utterly grateful for her. Joseph Dalton called me the next day after hearing from Jainine, and I met with him on a Monday just after the weekend when I spoke to him on a Friday. I discussed everything with him, showed him the house, told him my story, and what my situation was that I needed to move quickly for a job 12 hours away. I needed time to prep the house for pictures and he was able to provide me with all the tools I needed for success to set my house up for the market. While I was packing and prepping, it was very clear that he had already been networking to his own buyers as well as many other realtors with buyers moving to the area. As soon as my house officially hit the market…. I had all kinds of showings on the house nonstop!!! Three days straight, revolving door of interested buyers. Are you not in the same location of your house being sold or trying to buy a home from afar? No problem! Dalton Elite uses a web application (Dot Loop) that you can digitally sign documents from ANYWHERE!!! For 100% of this entire process, I have been able to do it remotely. Technology is an amazing thing these days and Dalton Elite is well up to speed with the technological advances that society has today. With their constant communications, technologically advanced tools, and beyond Elite skills in real estate, I would strongly recommend that you choose them for all of your real estate needs! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!! Thank you Dalton Elite Corporation, Joseph and Jainine, my thanks and appreciation to you is truly beyond words. I have feared this selling process in the past, for a couple of years for that matter. However, with your skills, you were able to get me through it quickly and painlessly! I have the utmost confidence in your abilities to get my friend (whom I referred to Dalton) through the same process as you have done for me. Again, thank you!"
-- Andrea R.
"Very professional, very easy to work with! Made an out of state sale very easy to manage!"

"Excellent, professional service. Great communication, very client centered in ensuring that our needs were met. Even from out of state, the process of selling our home was smooth and free of issues. We couldn't have asked for better service from Dalton Elite Realty."
