Sylvia moved to Texas in 1976 and considers Texas "the best place to live in my humble opinion." A newly licensed agent, Sylvia ran her own business for 12 years before caring for a sick family member. She and her husband have been married for more than 35 years and have 3 children and 6 wonderful grandchildren. Plus, they have lots of pets! Sylvia is actively involved with her church, First Baptist Church of Kopperl, leading a women's Sunday School class and teaching a class for adults each week. When not selling real estate, Sylvia loves spending time with family, volunteering, and teaching God's word. She enjoys riding horses and "tends to be a computer nerd."
"I chose real estate because I was ready to start a career outside of my home, but wanted something that would allow me the flexibility to still have a lot of family and community involvement," Sylvia said. "I chose Mike Bowman because he has a wonderful group of kind and considerate people working with him and they give me lots of encouragement and they love to teach you everything they can to make you successful at what you do, and I love to learn." Sylvia added, "We are never too old to learn."

Although I was born and grew up in the Upper Midwest, not Texas, I got here as quickly as I could! I was raised in a family that considered the real estate business just a part of growing up: Dad, my two brothers and sister are builders involved in both residential and commercial development. It was a natural that I would begin my career in the "family business" when I moved to the Southlake area in 1991. With more than 17 years as a REALTOR®, I can honestly say that I love the business because I love to work with the customers and clients, the Buyers and Sellers. I enjoy having a positive effect on these people's lives through successful real estate transactions.
Known for my attention to detail and ability to concentrate on each individual Buyer and/or Seller, I am also highly skilled at today's leading edge technology.great assets for clients and customers. To quote comments from a recent customer, ".it was a perfect experience and a great investment.Joel's a terrific guy.all very smooth.no stress.I would definitely recommend him." My clients do not hesitate to recommend me.in fact, they want their friends and relatives to have the same great real estate experience they've had. Over 60% of my sales and listings come from the recommendations of previous clients!
Whether listing a home, leasing an office, working with a builder to locate prime development property or working with excited buyers, I am intent on meeting the needs of my clients and customers. I love it when clients tell me, "Joel, you really made the difference in our lives." The biggest compliment is a referral.and the best accomplishment is a quality relationship with a customer for life!
A cum laude graduate of the University of North Texas with a Bachelor's degree in Finance, Banking and Investments, I have also served in the Texas Army National Guard as a Staff Sergeant in the Signal Corps. In my off-duty hours, I enjoy bass fishing, gardening and landscaping, as well as international travel.
