Real estate runs in Joel’s family, so he got into real estate at a young age flipping house in Los Angeles and San Diego and working in the family real estate investing business doing marketing, raising capital, and managing projects.
Over the years he’s had experience with many different assets and financial instruments. Joel has dealt with everything from portfolios of low-value REOs, Non-performing loans, and owner finance mortgages in the Midwest to underwriting 15-50MM multifamily value add plays for private equity firms. He’s transacted business in more than a dozen states and held real estate licenses in Hawaii, Utah, and California.
Joel’s, my most extensive and rewarding experience has been servicing clients in Utah and California luxury markets. He’s worked hard and learned the skills to become an expert in his field and is proud to provide the very best value and service to my clients. In doing so he has earned the CLHMS designation and title of Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist from The Institute of Luxury Home Marketing.
Joel has also been awarded the prestigious GUILD recognition by the institute for “demonstrating exceptional knowledge, experience, and expertise in the million-dollar and above market”. One of his achievements to earn this recognition was selling two homes above a million dollars, both with full-price offers within 24 hours each and within 90 days of each other. One of these homes He had purchased less than 6 months prior for $745,000, spent $150,000 improving, and sold for $1.2M, the other had been listed for 6 of the prior 8 weeks with another brokerage and had only received one offer for $128,000 less.
