I grew up in Virginia and attended college in Tennessee.  In 1972 I graduated from East Tennessee State University with a B.A. in Industrial Management and Technology.

After graduation, I did not pursue my major in college but I began a career with a major clothing company as a sales representative in Washington D.C.  And later with the same company, I was transferred to Orlando, Florida in 1974.  In 1988, again I was being transferred to a more profitable sales area, Los Angeles, California.  At that point, 24 years ago I decided to keep my family in Florida and start a new career in real estate sales . I have not looked back and for 23 years I have been in the Top 1% in real estate sales nationwide.   

God has blessed my family and my business.  Even though the Florida real estate market is not like it was, I  am still enjoying great business helping people to sell and buy homes.

Ratings & Reviews

When we retired, we wanted to I've to Lakeland from Ohio. I sent emails to a number of realtors. Joe was the only one that telephoned me. Since that time, he has sold us four properties. He is honest, truthful and trustworthy. He is also kind, generous and speaks well of others. He is a delight to work with and I wouldn't use anyone else in Lakeland.

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $125K in Lakeland, FL.

Bought a house in oct 2011 thru him. I can bet any one that you won't find a better realtor in lakeland.period. I am the kind of person who usually don't write remarks about anyone but the quality of his service demands this one.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $200K in Lakeland, FL.

Joe is Amazing! He helped my wife and I find the perfect home. He is knowledgeable, patient, and resourceful. With his help we were able to find an amazing home at a great price that exactly fit our wants and needs. He was with us and helpful with every step of the home buying process: he pointed out home features we never considered, helped us find a great home inspector, he found us a great deal on homeowners insurance, and so much more. We look forward to doing business with him in the future.  More Less
