After receiving his Master’s degree in Intercultural Communication from the University of Minnesota and a successful career in international education at Augsburg College in Minneapolis, Joel obtained his Minnesota real estate license and began working with Coldwell Banker Burnet in the Twin Cities. During his 14 years with the company, he developed a very successful business focusing on single family homes and residential investment properties. In 2011, after living in the Midwest all of his life, Joel decided it was time to escape Minnesota winters and move to Palm Springs. An investor himself, he has a special interest in multi-family investment properties as well as single family homes. For Joel, working in real estate is about building relationships of trust and respect as people make one the most important financial and lifestyle decisions of their lives, the purchase of a home.
