A Bit About Me

Hi there! I'm Joe, a proud University of Georgia grad and a true expert in building relationships and sealing deals. With a background in forestry and account management and a passion for personal finance, I bring a unique set of skills to the table. And let's remember my charming personality and quick wit because, let's face it, investing in real estate can be a wild ride, so you'll need someone to make the journey a little more entertaining. I'm ready to be your partner in the exciting world of real estate.


My expertise allows me to stay ahead of market trends, spot exciting growth opportunities, and develop pricing strategies to help you reach financial freedom. I believe in rolling up my sleeves and getting involved in real estate investing. With transparency and honesty as my guiding principles, I bring a unique blend of head and heart. I'm not just a bean counter or a suit and tie. I'm passionate about connecting with people and helping them achieve their goals. I take the time to get to know my clients, understand their goals, and work tirelessly to help them achieve them.


My diverse background working with family forest owners has equipped me with valuable skills and expertise to excel in real estate investing despite never trading on a residential property. I've supported owners of hundreds to thousands of acres of forested land in Georgia. They often want to maximize their land's potential but need help figuring out how to start. I've met them at events such as local Society of American Foresters chapter meetings and Forestry Day at the Capitol, and I listen closely to their concerns and values. I enjoy educating them on how to work with loggers to harvest mature trees while maintaining a thriving forest. Many of these conversations lead to exciting follow-up meetings, where I guide them through the process of managing their forests sustainably. However, a few landowners find it more challenging than expected due to regulations, contracts, and unexpected problems. I support them every step of the way and ensure a stress-free experience. In the event of natural disasters, I step in to provide support and guidance. Through this journey, family forest owners learn the value of their land and the benefits of managing it sustainably for themselves and the community. They emerge as successful owners of timberland properties, proud of their wealth and preservation of the land's natural beauty.


When I'm not crunching numbers or negotiating deals, you can find me on a scenic hike with my loving spouse, our son, and fur baby or cruising down the open road. I've got a fierce determination and a heart of gold, always striving to leave a positive mark on the world. And if you're searching for the ideal real estate investment, whether in rural timberland property or up-and-coming gentrified neighborhoods, I'm your guy! With my expertise and passion for helping others, I'm here to make your real estate dreams a reality.


I believe in building solid and long-lasting relationships with my clients. My approach to real estate is rooted in my INFJ personality and my passion for helping family forest owners. If you're looking for a dedicated and caring professional who always has your best interests in mind, reach out to me today, and let's get started on your journey to financial independence.
