    "I have had the honor of working with Joe Caltabiano for over 10 years. He is a consummate professional and a great guy. As a leukemia survivor, he has a unique understanding of what is important in life and generously serves organizations such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. He also appreciates the value that realtors like myself offer to clients and the greater community. His level of service is second to none. He responds to calls, gets the best interest rates and educates clients so they can make great decisions. I look forward to working with Joe for many years to come."
