Tell Us Your Story

The real estate matter in itself that Payton got me through was rough to say the least.

But as the process started and all the way up til closing Payton was more than on his game. Every question or concern I had was handled with respect, even though I know I asked many of the same question mutiple times. Payton kept my informed throughout the process as to what I needed to do and when. I can't say enough good things about Payton and the team at The Realest, they embody what it means to be professional.

Andrew Rhein

I was going to sell a house by myself.

Many realtors contacted me, but I always said no, until Andrew. He wanted a trial period, and was willing to make a bargain. I ended up taking home as much as I was asking, without having to do any work. It was quick and easy.

Hello, I started working with Pam last year while looking for a new home.

I had to take a break in looking for a home while trying to repair some things in my current home. Pam has kept in touch with me and has continued to send me homes to look at. Pam has always been available when I’ve reached out to her. She’s always pleasant and has a smile on her face when I’ve seen her in person. I feel good about recommending Pam to any of my friends looking for a new home. I’m excited and look forward to working with Pam in the very near future.

It was nothing but an amazing experience with Payton.

We have had an office space for lease for just about 8 years and have dealt with numerous realtors. Once switching to Payton as our realtor, he had delivered to us a leased office space in under 3 months. Could not be happier with the outcome and the way he dealt with our situation. Such a personable and well rounded individual.

Pamela worked tirelessly for us in the purchase of our new home.

She responded to all of our questions whether it was evenings or weekends. She was a skillful negotiator who was always able to get us and the seller to a mutually acceptable solution. She worked to resolve concerns we had about the HOA. We would highly recommend her to others looking to purchase a home in Northwest Indiana.

Payton was a great realtor to work with!

He listened to everything we wanted and had great insight into the market to get us our first home. We couldn't have been happier.


I chose to sell a home on our own, but having it listed on the internet.

Andrew represented a couple looking for a home in Chesterton, and contacted me for a showing. I commend him for reaching out beyond the boundaries of MLS listings for his buyers. Andrew was easy to work with, while still remaining fully committed to appropriately representing our buyers. He provided appropriate updates throughout the process.

Pamela made our buying experience an unforgettable event.

She made sure the process was simple and most importantly stress free on us. She is very knowledgeable of not only the local area but the entire buying process. Whenever we had a question (which we had many) her responses were always quick and on point. Definitely would recommend to all!


Payton made sure our home buying process went smoothly, and kept both parties informed of the status of each step of the purchasing process in order to complete the home purchase.

Would definitely recommend. I entrusted Payton with 2 more of my property purchase and sales. You need someone like this when you are buying a home or property over $500,000. WE DID!

She knew it was important to be in a kid friend neighborhood and that meant a lot to us. She was always available to take my call and patiently walked us through the process. What a great imprint she left on our family!


He was busy with other business, so there were times when he did not get back to me in an appropriate time frame.

He did an good job given that the sale was not an easy one. Definitely recommend him to anyone selling or buying in NW Indiana.


Looking to buy my first home has always seemed like such a scary thought and confusing process.

After meeting with Payton, I can say my confusion is totally gone. He’s helped explain every step I need to take throughout this process so I completely understand. He then went on to help me look for homes in the Merriville area. While i haven’t found what I’m looking for yet, I’m just so thankful that Payton has been here to help me along the way through this process.

Everything went very smoothly during the entire process. I would greatly recommend using her if you are looking for a home. Thanks again for everything Pam! We are enjoying being homeowners!

Elias Family

Payton paid very close attention to what my family was looking for in a home.

He even went out of his way to show us a home that was not even on the market yet, which was very helpful considering how fast paced the market is. I would recommend Payton to anyone looking to buy or sell!!


Excellent realtor!

Made the “first time homebuyer” experience easy and painless! Payton is patient and very helpful! I would highly recommend him to anyone whether you’re looking for your first house or forever home.


Had a great conversation with Pam the other night.

Told her what my goals were once I graduated next semester and she advised me on the first steps of home buying. Very very patient and understanding and made me feel like any questions I had weren't stupid. Thank you Pam and look forward to working with you soon!!


Payton has been showing me houses around the crown point area and he is very respectful and answers all your questions with authority.

Highly recommend him and hope to buy a house from him soon

anthony doreski

Since 2014 I have purchased or sold four properties with Team Joveski and have had nothing but a good experience.

Always responsive to my calls or texts, following up on my inquiries, and helping me deal with things beyond closing (unexpected water leak) to make sure I am taken care of. Very pleased to have been introduced to Pam and Saso, they are top notch.


Payton has been a tremendous help in helping me search for my first home.

He also represented us in building our new home. He brought valuable insight to the process which helped us to build our dream home. Payton truly cares about his work and his clients. I would highly recommend him for all your real estate needs. I can’t thank him enough for all his hard work.


Pam was readily available at all times to support my inconvenient schedule - whether it was last minute weekend showings or taking phone calls well after normal operating hours.

She shared plenty of advice but wasn't remotely pushy. She patiently waited while my girlfriend and I discovered what we wanted out of a house and expertly guided us through several negotiations and the final closing.


Payton has done an amazing job on helping me look for my first house to buy in the Lakes of the Four Seasons!

He’s a very hard worker and a great person to work with!

We used Pam Joeveski of Realest of Crown Point, IN to search for a property in Shorewood Forest subdivision in Valparaiso, IN.

This is a wonderful community and land/lots are very difficult to come by. Pam was diligent in her search and made sure we were abreast of properties as the hit the market. Pam made the offer wascomplete expedited to assure an accepted offer. This thoroughness and tenacity assured all parties a smooth closing process.

Payton was a pleasure to work with and gave insights into the home buying experience that I hadn’t thought of before.

He has excellent knowledge of the areas in which he works and always comes to the table with a positive attitude.
