David R.
I have done 2 real estate transactions with Joelle over the last year. Joelle has proven to be a true professional. She knows the market and has a great intuition of what it will take to get a deal done. Joelle takes her job very personally and really cares for her clients. At this point I consider her a friend and would recommend her to anyone looking for a house or apartment in the Miami area.
L. Moses
Joelle is likely the most honest real estate professional in Miami. She always puts the needs of her clients first. Many agents put the commission first but not Joelle. She’s also extremely knowledgable and a very tough negotiator. I would not hesitate to recommend her, even to my family and closest friends.
Ray H. / North East / The Setai / Surf Club Four Seasons
Joelle has guided me through four real estate transactions that were important to me, and each time I have benefitted from her help and been very thankful. She has everything it takes to make the experience pleasant and optimal. She has a great knowledge of the market and top connections. She is always available and responds quickly. Best of all, she asks all the right questions and adds suggestions, that help her clients deal with confidence. Joelle is the only person I have met in this business that cares more about me than a transaction. That’s why she’s the only person I will deal with.
Jeri Goldstein
David and I have worked with Joelle for over 15 years. She helped us with our first purchase at the Setai in 2004 and a condo for our son at the Waverly in 2010. We listed our Setai property with her which she sold very quickly in 2014 and then assisted in our purchase at Il Villaggio the same month. Since we are from California we were delighted to have such a knowledgeable, personable, professional, and communicative agent by our side through all of these transactions. Joelle has done a great job for us and I would use only her as our agent.
Gary / Los Angeles, CA / The Setai
Working with Joelle was an absolute pleasure. We bought and sold one unit in six months for a substantial gain, Then repurchase a newer, better “off the market” unit. She is tenacious and honest and has the utmost integrity. She knows the market well and is “in the know” of deals happening. The people that make up this business are hard-working and accurate. I chose Joelle for all these reasons and is my realtor I will continue to use in the future.

Joelle has rented bought and sold for my family over the last few years. Reliable and fast execution has been her game. She sold 2 condos for us in the same month, and got us our asking price! Thanks Joelle for you’re expertise and care in this real estate market.
Bryan C. / Vice President, Sothebys International Realty
I am a Sotheby’s International Realtor in Dallas and am so glad we connected. The client was a very important lifelong client and friend who purchased two condominiums as investments. He knew of Sotheby’s vast global marketing reach and asked if I could refer a top agent in Miami. The choice was easy after speaking with several agents. Joelle remained in constant contact throughout the process and made both sales as seamless as possible. She sold both condos for close to asking price. I would personally use Joelle for anything real estate related in the Miami area. She is the best!
Jodi S. / Turnberry Ocean Colony
Joelle sold our condo in 3 weeks! Joelle sold our condo in 3 weeks! We gave her the listing after meeting with several agents, but she really impressed us with her knowledge of the current market in the area, her professionalism, and her incredible warmth. We thought the price she suggested was spot-on but still expected it to take around six months to a year to sell our unit as there were several others in our building on the market. Joelle sold it in 3 weeks! Joelle sold it in 3 weeks! In the short time we worked with Joelle, she became like family to us. South Florida can be so big and impersonal, but Joelle was such a pleasure to work with. Dedicated, responsive, and kind. We would happily work with her again anytime.
Lindy Goodman / Sothebys Realty Canada
Joelle guided my husband and me through the purchase of a pre-construction condominium. As a fellow realtor from out of town, I was impressed by her knowledge, integrity, and keen negotiating skills. I have recommended Joelle to people I know who are looking to buy or lease in the Miami market. They will not be disappointed!
Mark L. / St. Regis Bal Harbour
My experience with Joelle has been terrific right from the start. She is very knowledgeable and a go-getter yet very courteous and responsible. I find Joelle to be a refreshing anomaly in her trade. She genuinely cares and always has her client's best interest in mind. It was really a pleasure dealing with her and I would recommend her very highly to any of my friends. Sincerely,
John B. / NYC / Setai
Joelle Oiknine is the only real estate agent to work within Miami. I have done many real estate transactions – buying and selling properties for both personal and business and arranging for numerous rentals. When dealing with properties in Miami there is no question that Joelle is by far the best. She is intelligent and conscientious- caring and efficient. Whether for purchase, sale, or for rentals she handles the deals perfectly. She is always available and her advise is superb. Couldn’t recommend her more highly.
Gerard / Paris, France / Turnberry Ocean Colony
Joëlle nous aida dans la recherche d’un appartement, elle a une connaissance complète des différentes opportunités à Miami. Elle nous assista aussi dans notre installation, travaux etc…ce qui n’est pas toujours aisé pour des “newcomers”… Quand nous avons décidé de rentrer en France, elle s’occupa avec succès de la revente de notre appartement; nous venons cet été pour un mois, c’est Joëlle qui nous a trouvé le meilleur “deal”; si nous devions nous réinstaller un jour à Miami, why not, c’est certainement avec elle que nous ferions une recherche.
Steve S. / Los Angeles, CA / Turnberry Ocean Colony
Joelle, Thanks for the help in negotiations with the purchase of both Turnberry Condos. You went above and beyond your duty in helping negotiate the terms of both contracts. Most realtors would have just stepped aside just to make another sale, but you didn’t you were more concerned with what was best for me. Thanks Again!
Rocio W. / Roney Palace

She knows how to work on your behalf and will go the extra mile to make sure you are more than satisfied with your investment. Joelle is professional, honest, and trustworthy. You can feel she has no hesitation to let anyone know she is working for you and looking out for what is best for you. I have had two experiences purchasing and selling real estate with Joelle in Florida and I am looking forward to a third purchase and to continue to work with her in any future purchases.
Ron S. / Los Angeles, CA / Setai & W
The biggest thing that sticks out with Joelle is the fact that she wants you to make the decision that’s in your best interest. As customers, we all want the same thing, honesty, timely service during the sale & service after the sale. To put in bluntly Joelle is that person. Being a Real Estate Broker for over 25 years I can count on one hand the number of letters I have written like this, that’s how rare people like Joelle are. If I had to use one phrase to describe Joelle it would be this. She really cares about her clients.

Joelle is the best real estate broker I have ever had the pleasure of working with. .She took the time and was very patient with me to make sure she understood my needs. now that I’ve bought, I can’t be happier for it is precisely what I wanted. In spite of the fact that I was completely new to the condo market in Florida, she very clearly explained to me the “law of the land” and the various details and procedures regarding the transaction. Sincerely,
G. Angar

Joan & Luc P. / Hamptons South
We recently purchased a condo at Hamptons South through our broker Joelle Oiknine. Joelle was very pleasant to work with from start to finish. She promptly responded to our e-mails for information without ever using any pressure. She also went beyond the call of duty when some ‘issues’ with the developer arose and helped us to resolve them. We would not hesitate to recommend Joelle to any prospective real estate buyers.
Jared S.
To whom it may concern, My experience with Joelle Oiknine was truly wonderful. After we decided to purchase a specific unit, Joelle remained in constant contact with my family throughout the nearly six-month timeframe until we finally closed on the apartment in late February. She was very helpful in assisting my family obtain mortgage services and she very much acted as the liaison between us and the sales office where my family purchased their unit. Joelle was truly wonderful throughout the whole process and made the experience of purchasing a condo very enjoyable for my family. Sincerely,
Brian F. / 2080 Ocean
Joelle provided us with a great purchasing experience for the South Florida area. After visiting with many agents it was clear Joelle was of a different nature. She never pushed us into a buy; however very clearly and without judgment showed the upside and the downside for various properties. Joelle clearly worked very hard to provide endless data on properties to make our property choice clear. The net result is we have ended up with a Vacation property on the ocean, which also allows for healthy rental opportunities as well, we are very satisfied.
Robert T. / Ocean Three
Joelle was very assertive in the price negotiation on both the buy and sell side of my condo and felt she had my best interest in mind. I bought the condo for below market and sold for the maximum price. She worked extra hard in the negotiations to ensure everything went smoothly. Joelle is an awesome realtor and I would recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell.
Judy and Joey K.
Joelle understood our needs and with her knowledge of the market was able to zero in on exactly what we were looking for. She was very professional in her approach and we were more than satisfied the way she negotiated on our behalf. She explained all details of the paper work to us and made sure we clearly understood all the steps that had to be taken. Sincerely,
Sid K. / Broker
I just got your card. I want to thank you for caring about where I bought and helping me pick the perfect home. Once it is fixed up, I would love for you to stop by and see it. Thank you again. Joelle: Thank you for showing up on a Sunday to show your listing, when no other broker would. You are truly a professional.
Kevin & Sloane S. / Aventura Bay Townhomes
Joelle is really hands-on and knows how to find you what you are looking for. She is a great listener and always on the pulse of the market. Always available, she provided great advice during negotiations and was always very patient. She has a great instinct. Joelle also has helped our parents find a condo earlier this year. If you are serious about buying in South Florida, Joelle’s your only choice! Kindly,
