In 2010, Joe switched into a career in real estate and little did he know it became something he absolutely loved doing. Before relocating to Boston, Joe earned his BS in Secondary Education from University of South Alabama and completed graduate work in Instructional Design and Development while he was working as a middle school teacher.
When Joe landed in Boston he was hired by Crate and Barrel, which has a history of hiring former teachers because of their training and teaching skills. At Crate and Barrel Joe worked his way up the management ladder and helped open stores in Hingham, MA, St Louis, MO, Toronto, CA, Burlington, MA, Natick, MA, and Hartford, CT. He was also the Boston and CT area trainer for purchase of sales systems. With a background in home decor and furnishings, Joe has a unique eye and vision to help clients with visualizing spaces - whether its staging, renovating or deciding how clients will fit their existing furniture into a new space. Joe’s previous careers have focused around helping others, and listening to their needs and wants which has proved a great asset to his clients as a real estate agent. He prides himself on being honest, trustworthy and ensuring client satisfaction.
Working with new clients moving to Boston is among Joe's favorite things. As a transplant from Alabama, perhaps one of the most opposite part of the United States, he understands the anxiety and general overwhelming feelings associated with moving to a new city. When Joe first moved to Boston in 2003 he landed in Jamaica Plain. Although he has lived in other neighborhoods in Boston, he found that JP was the most diverse neighborhood in Boston, and is surrounded by green space, so it quickly became his home away from home while transitioning to city life, and still finds it a remarkable place to call home.
