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.
