Joe Roch, ABR®, SRS, Associate Broker

Hailing from Coventry, Rhode Island, Joe is a third generation Realtor, and also works concurrently as a residential appraiser at his family’s business, Roch Appraisals. Joe’s current professional designations included: Accredited Buyer’s Representative; and Seller Representative Specialist.

Joe received his BFA from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts in 2002 and, upon graduation, promptly emigrated to Dublin, Ireland. During his seven years abroad, Joe traveled extensively, completed a master’s degree at Trinity College Dublin, and, most importantly, learned how to pour a really good pint of Guinness.

Joe’s passion for the visual and performing arts has found an unexpected — and incredibly fulfilling — second life working with Rhode Island’s historic properties. Joe wholeheartedly believes that our historic homes and neighborhoods are works of art that deserve our preservation and protection. Joe has sat on the board of the West Broadway Neighborhood Association since 2014, where he sits as co-chair of the Historic House Tour.

Joe and his husband own a Gothic Revival cottage on Hammond Street in the Armory District of Providence, a space that they share with a wee Boston terrier named Roxie.

Joe represented me on multiple fronts and he did an amazing job. He went above and beyond the call of duty in all respects. His attention to detail was superb and his enthusiasm was awesome. My favorite thing about Joe is his can-do attitude. He’s hustles and gets things done. I highly recommend  his services.

As first time buyers, Joe was extremely patient in our home search. He was very attentive to what we were looking for, but also consultative as he has the experience we do not. He made a potentially daunting house search fun and easy!

We cannot say enough great things about our experience with Joe!!! As first time homebuyers with a *very* limited knowledge of the process, working with the right Realtor was absolutely crucial. Joe picked up my first ever call to him on the second ring and was attentive, organized, and supportive throughout the entire process thereafter — even scheduling a preliminary meeting to simply explain the home-buying process to us. Joe is deeply involved in the local community which made us feel even more secure working with him. He was also kind enough to introduce us to new neighbors during our home inspection and recommend activities and organizations on the West Side. I would also like to express my deep gratitude to the broader Armory Properties team. It was important to us to work with a company that has roots in the area and does good beyond their walls. Thank you for all you do

Our experience with Joe couldn’t have been better. He is extremely knowledgeable, thorough, communicative, patient and friendly. Those last two qualities were especially important to us, first-time home-buyers who needed some extra attention! Once he learned what we were looking for, he was extremely active in finding our dream house. Joe really knows the market in our area and was fantastic in communicating what was coming up for sale that we should pay attention to. The whole process was smooth and efficient and we ended up with the perfect house below asking price! We have recommended Joe to several close friends and everyone has been thrilled with his work. I could not speak more highly of Joe and the work he does.

Joe is a dream to work with. He knows the neighborhoods and the buying process inside and out, down to fine details of appraisal/value in a quickly shifting market. He is extremely knowledgeable, but never pushy; an amazing communicator; patient, detail-oriented; and always level-headed. Also, he is clearly well respected by other agents in the area (as I could see through interactions at open houses). I would never have even known my new home was coming on the market without his ear-to-the-ground local knowledge. Thanks so much Joe! You’re the best.

Joe just helped us buy our first home and he was INCREDIBLE throughout the entire experience. As first-time home buyers in a difficult market, Joe was patient, informative, dedicated and thoughtful. He is insanely knowledgeable and connected here in Rhode Island, and we felt like that worked really  well in our favor as buyers. When we were ready to make an offer he provided the perfect amount of guidance without being pushy. We felt so confident and comfortable with him as our Realtor, and ended up with the PERFECT house for us. We could never have gone through this process without Joe’s support and expertise. I truly can’t recommend him enough.

Joe is a fantastic agent who performed professionally and was accessible to us when we needed questions answered. He provided excellent guidance on staging and we could tell he was an expert for the market in our neighborhood. We couldn’t be more pleased with his work.

My wife and I just closed on our first home and couldn’t be more excited. It took us some time to start the process, mainly because it felt pretty intimidating at first. Once we got connected with Joe, however, any lingering anxiety quickly vanished. Joe is not only a consummate professional but is also very personable and easy to work with. He listens and communicates well and he quickly understood what we were looking for in our first home. He also demystified the search and buying process and made us feel empowered through every step of the way. He is knowledgeable, diligent, and an overall joy to work with. When the time comes to search for our next home, we’ll check in with Joe and his colleagues at Armory, post haste! Joe gets my highest possible recommendation. Hit him up!

…Most importantly, he was supportive without being pushy, he was cautious when needed, he gave us room to make our own decisions and he fairly presented all information at each stage. Furthermore, I feel completely spoiled by his ease of communication and availability — always lightening fast to respond by phone or email with clear and thoughtful answers…We’re thrilled to have found a perfect home for us and so thankful for Joe’s guidance, support and expertise. By the time we closed we felt completely prepared and confident — no buyer’s remorse here.

I highly recommend Joe to anyone in search of a honest, personable and effective sales agent. Joe managed the successful sale of our three-family home in the Spring of 2015. He was completely and totally organized throughout the entire process, and totally patient with the fact that I was not always 😉 Joe went the extra mile to make sure that the house was looking its best for every showing…he even planted flowers in the back yard! But the numbers speak for themselves: Cash offer, less than a week after listing for above asking. I credit our success completely to Joe’s killer instinct about the local market.
