Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Need a little edge in selling your house? Many people rely on the practice of burying a statue of Saint Joseph, convinced that the patron saint of home life can help them toward a speedy and successful transaction. In Saint Joseph, My Real Estate Agent: Why the Patron Saint of Home Life Is the Patron Saint of Home-Selling, Stephen Binz contends that seeking Joseph's intercession is not a superstitious act, but a devotional one. After having a house on the market for seven months with nary a nibble, Binz sheepishly took the advice of his Presbyterian real estate agent and buried a Saint Joseph statue in his yard. A week after the ritual, he had an offer and sold the house-to a man named Joseph. In this book, he offers advice on intercessory prayer to Saint Joseph, even including a prayer service for burying the statue. He also explores the person and character of Saint Joseph as a husband, father and carpenter, inviting readers to know Joseph in a spirit of "prayerful devotion."

From the Publisher

Hundreds of thousands of people, including the author, have sold their homes under the patronage of St. Joseph, whose intercession they sought after burying his statue in their yard. The author takes a personal, humorous, light, and loving look at Joseph, depicting his life as a husband and father, home-builder, and carpenter. He shows that the popular statue-burying practice is not a superstition, but part of a prayerful devotion. He also provides prayer services for selling a house and blessing a new home.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I have not read the book yet, I know first hand the power of St. Joseph. Last fall we put our house on the market and in less then 30 days we had an offer and sold about two months later. Our house was not in the best part of town, it had no garage, two story and one bath. Have faith good things will happen.

I was very pleased with the content of this book. I was not reading it to learn an "Idiot's Guide" to St. Joseph. I was interested in knowing the background on this practice, and I found this book to be a thoughtful and respectful approach. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the practice and its history.
