Here is Joe’s Story in his own words –

I grew up in the farmlands of western Ohio. Working hard and looking out for your neighbor were essential.  As a teenager I discovered I had a knack for math, attention to detail and being a ‘completer’, capable of finishing any task I started and doing so in a cost-effective, time-efficient way.  So I, inspired by my father and grandfather, became a fine woodworker, studying at a prestigious school in Boston.  Home building and historical restorations became my vocation. 

Arriving in California I built and sold my first custom homes in Laguna and Newport.  After about 6 years I entered the production home building industry where I also became responsible for sales and marketing.

With my background in customs and historical restorations, I brought a commitment to quality  and service to production home building that was recognized in Professional Builder magazine (link to article) as "...setting standards for quality and service the entire industry should emulate".

The thing I am perhaps most pleased with accomplishing is, as a boy from farm country who did not think college was possible or necessary, I graduated from Pepperdine with a business degree, Summa cum Laude, and number one in my class.

Today, licensed in California and Oregon and also active in Washington and Texas, we focus on brokerage, with a long career in residential, in both custom homes and production homes, it was an easy transition to the single family residential resales industry. We also continue in commercial brokerage with a focus on apartments and office buildings.

My experience in production home building provides my clients with a broader array of marketing tools and depth of insight into the data of market trends no one else can match.  Check out our Monthly Market Reports to see for yourself.
