Joe is a native New Englander who is originally from the southern part of New Hampshire. He spent many summers vacationing on Lake Winnipesaukee and after graduating from Plymouth State College in 1977 decided the Lakes Region was where he wanted to be. He started his sales career at Cold Spring Properties in Ashland and later worked at a local automobile dealership in Plymouth. After helping manage two family businesses on Squam Lake, he started a general contracting business with his brother which remained in operation until the early 1990's. In 1992 he joined Conway Office Products, Inc. where he developed a new territory for the company. After 11 years establishing new accounts throughout northern New Hampshire and northeastern Vermont, he knew his real desire was to work locally and after an offer to join a local real estate firm, he decided to make the change. He has been actively marketing properties on Squam Lake and the surrounding area for the past several years and is currently the managing broker for Maxfield Real Estate in Center Harbor.
