    We cannot say enough good things about Joey, who has been our agent for both buying our first home together and also selling my partner on both sides of the Bay Bridge and spanning three counties, in the toughest seller's market in years. He maintained the utmost professionalism and top notch service and communication as we navigated the bidding and home buying process, ultimately going through 3 other competitive bidding wars before finding the right fit. We truly appreciate both his seemingly unlimited patience but also his expert knowledge of real estate and properties in general to ascertain property values, amenities, and other factors that would impact costs and our quality of life. Joey showed true dedication during one lost bid in a neighborhood we adored when he contacted the local residents for leads on potential properties for sale, and we all know cold calling is the worst! He listened to our needs and never pushed us to sign on the dotted line until we felt 110% confident in our decisions. He worked with our varying work schedules, and always showed up on time and with the right attitude. We enjoyed working with him so much that there was no question to us which agent we could trust to sell my partner's house. It went under contract in 3 days after multiple offers, and finalized over the list price, meaning it was priced well with Joey's advice and comparable analysis. We could not ask for a better agent!

    Joey was the complete solution to my needs as a buyer and a new resident of Chestertown. His straightforward style, easy manner, and local knowledge are extraordinary, and set him apart for the "closing factory" thought process which so many realtors have. If you want dedicated, thoughtful and honest support in pursuit of your objectives, Joey is your man.

    My wife and I were very pleased with Joey's professionalism and drive in selling our two partials . He went way beyond the norm and never got discouraged even though there were issues that would have discouraged most others. Many thanks Joey! Roy and Molly

    My husband and I met Joey as a listing agent of a property that we were interested in. We were immediately impressed with his skills and worked with him as our realtor until we found the perfect property to purchase. Joey's reponse time to our questions and dedication to finding answers was stellar, even when he was on vacation! We are 100% pleased with his services and highly recommend him as a realtor!

    Miles and Martha gave Joseph 5 stars out of 5
    We were very fortunate to have Mr. Joey Ciganek represent us in our recent home purchase. Having purchased and sold nine properties including farms, condos, vacation homes and primary residences we have been expertly represented by several fine real estate professionals. Mr. Ciganek and one other professional with many years of experience stand out as superior to all others. Joey is a mature, highly intelligent young man with exceptional organization skills and compulsive attention to detail. He is personable and an excellent listener. His recommendations were well thought out and presented with the sole intent to provide us the most lifestyle satisfying and financially favorable purchase. In dealing and coordinating with other agents he was fair and straightforward. He treated his colleagues with respect and never disparaged anyone or harshly criticized their positions or ideas. Joey took control of all tasks. He was always prepared with thoroughly researched information and provided alternative approaches to decisions. Negatives as well as positives were presented with complete clarity. Throughout the process he insured that we completely understood our options. He was dedicated to promoting and protecting our self-interests. Allow an example of what it was like to work with Joey. After closing we had not received copies of some of the documents. We notified Joey and he insisted that he contact the closing attorney. We would have been well satisfied with his notifying the attorney that the documents had not been received and getting assurance that they would be sent to us. Instead, Joey insisted that the attorney send the documents to him thereby shifting the responsibility for follow up to himself. In that way he could ensure that the task would be done promptly and correctly so we would not be bothered or worried. The example may sound small, but it is not. Joey stayed with us throughout the process and simply made all problems go away. He is a great finisher. Joey is also a licensed attorney and could explain all property questions. His knowledge was invaluable. We cannot recommend this real estate professional more highly and would welcome sharing our experience with any prospective clients. All of his future clients will be fortunate to be represented by him.

    Seeing as Mr. Joseph Ciganek has been living on the Eastern Shore his whole life it made the decision process much easier and more personable. He really appears to love this side of Maryland and he shared that enthusiasm with us as we were looking. Thank you, Joseph.

    In a extremely stressful and crazy market, Joey has made the experience easy, but also exciting and a complete learning experience. His local knowledge of the area, its history and people is extremely valuable when looking for a home in the area, as well as entertaining. His law background made the logistics of buying a home a breeze, and he was able to point out details in the contract I may have missed on my own or with another agent. He cares deeply about his clients, is dedicated to getting what they deserve and want, and his love for his home state of Maryland is something hard to find. I highly recommend Joey, and will be using his services in the future.

    Joey understood our needs in finding the right house. As out of town buyers, he worked diligently within our limited time frame. His knowledge of the Eastern Shore was instrumental in making our decision to relocate. We are looking forward to becoming part of the Chestertown community.

    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 ...
