“For experience, reliability, and efficiency, you can’t do better than realtor Joan Plew!”

Bob & Tiny Hughes

“If anyone were to ask me where to go to buy or sell a home, I would tell them to go see Joan Plew at Yaman Real Estate. Joan is the best person that we ever met. She sold our house and found us a house to buy. Joan is the most honest person we ever met. If you want someone you can trust and someone who believes in you then you would love Joan.”

Mary D. Fisher

“I recently purchased a home in Homer, NY. Joan Plew was my real estate agent. She was a joy to deal with. I found her to be very knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate. She was always able to answer my questions and very good at getting things done. I really liked that she worked around my schedule. She was THE BEST real estate agent I have ever dealt with. She has my highest recommendation!”

We chose the right person when we asked you to help us. I’d like to compare you to a “dog whisperer”. You calmly trained us in every step and tamed our anxieties. Thank you so much. We love our new home.

Please accept my sincere thanks for the expeditious manner in which you have handled this manner.  I deeply appreciate your professionalism and timely assistance in obtaining this buyer at a good price for the property.  If the need ever arises, I will not hesitate to recommend your services to family and friends.

As a Marine veteran I appreciate the aggressiveness that Joan showed while selling my house.  Even though it was a unique contemporary A-frame, Joan adapted her skills to showcase this property in the best way for a speedy sale.  Thanks Joan!

We are from Pennsylvania and decided to look at homes to purchase in this area for a week-end get-a-way and future retirement home.

We contacted Joan via e-mail and from that moment on was so very helpful in all aspects of our purchase…from looking at homes to closing & everything in-between.  Being from out of state we needed local help and Joan was there from start to finish.  We couldn’t have done it without her!

Stephen Thompson

Buying a house for the first time seemed  rather daunting.  We were grateful to have Joan’s help in guiding us through the process.  Joan helped us to refine what type of house would meet our needs.  She persisted in looking throughout the area over a number of months in order to find what we were looking for.  Joan’s knowledge of the area, the housing market and what to do at each phase helped us to close the deal.

Dick & Cindy Clark

We live in the Owego area and once we determined we could not find the home we wanted in our area we reached out to the Cortland/Homer area in our search which is where we met Joan.  One of our very first homes of interest we had lost out on as an offer was just put in place.  From there, after viewing a couple homes with Joan she soon knew exactly what we were searching for.  As the season was passing by we had a real active calendar ahead of us so we advised Joan we would be busy and wouldn’t be actively looking.  A few weeks had passed and thanks to Joan’s knowledge of our interests, she wrote to advise us that the original house we were interested in had the first offer fall through and was back on the market.  She advised us that there was actually an open house that night and if we had any interest we should try and get to it.  We were due to head on vacation the following morning and plans were to go home and pack, but we opted to change our plans and attend this open house.  Once we did our walkthrough we both realized that this was the house we wanted and being that there was some active interest we would need to move fast.  We both had BIG concerns that our vacation plans could be interrupted.  We immediately called Joan and discussed an offer.  Joan pulled together the offer that evening and as we passed through Cortland headed on our vacation the following morning we stopped in Yaman Real Estate to sign the offer.  We were able to still keep our vacation schedule and Joan called us after the offer was presented to the sellers with congratulating news! In our opinion Joan is to be thanked for keeping our search in mind even though we had pulled out of actively looking and as well knowing our wants and keeping up to date with the active market.  As well, Joan knew our scheduling situation and worked hard to pull off the offer so we were able to keep our vacation schedule as planned!  Our entire experience with Joan and Yaman Real Estate has been impressive!!  Thanks Joan…we both appreciate everything you did for us and your assistance in finding our dream home!!



Helene & Carlo Karam

We have bought two houses through Yaman Real Estate and Joan Plew has helped us both times.  We had looked at a lot of houses and Joan has always been there for us.  We looked at houses in the early morning and late evening and Joan has always made it work with our crazy schedules.  She always has a smile on her face and when it comes to real estate she knows what she’s talking about.  We love our new home and have no plans to move but if we decided to sell, Joan would be our first call.  Through the years of house hunting Joan became more than our agent, she became a very good family friend.  Thank you Joan.

Ken & Kellie McConnell

Joan was extremely helpful in the entire house buying process.  She stuck with us even though it was a challenge to find a house that fit our loan.  She worked extremely hard and found us our home and did all she could to get us in as fast as we could.  She had a lot of patience and always returned a phone call.  We appreciated everything she did for our family.  Thanks again Joan we couldn’t have done it with you.

“Our Experiences with Yaman Real Estate have been wonderful. Joan Plew was always ready to help with anything we ever needed. Before we even had moved to Cortland, my in-laws came to do some “scouting” for us. Joan welcomed them, took them all over town, answered all their questions about Cortland. When we arrived, Joan helped us look for a rental property, we wanted to get a feel for the town before we purchased. When we were ready to buy, Joan and Yaman were with us every step of the way, finding us our perfect home. When we were getting my parents to move up to the area, Joan was there for us again. Working diligently to help them make this move. after 40+ years in the same house in Long Island. She was caring , patient, warm and always professional, going more than the extra mile, on what was a very challenging transaction. We have recommended Joan whole heartedly, always with very successful results. Joan Plew and Yaman Real Estate have been one of the most positive experiences we have had in real estate dealings.”

“We were impressed with Joan’s professionalism when we bought our house thru her over 10 years ago. When we chose to sell our house she was our first and only choice. Her experience and knowledge helped us to sell our house quickly and at a great price. “
