    Working with Joe

    I got into mortgages in 2002, at the advice of a client I was working with at the time. It was readily apparent that I enjoyed the industry immensely. Building relationships with prospective clients and referral sources was from the very beginning something I enjoyed and pursued passionately. There is nothing more enjoyable than helping someone with one of life's biggest financial decisions, financing a home. My mission early on was to help educate first time buyers, but over the course of my career, it has become so much more than that. Now, I find myself talking to everyone from first timers, to my past clients, now buying and selling with their families, to people purchasing their empty nester home, or dream lake house. My interaction with new and past clients keeps me engaged and excited to be in this industry every day.

    Personally, I live in Lincoln Square with my family. We are immersed in the Community at St Ben's in Northcenter. Spend a great deal of time at the Old Town School of Folk Music. And, at every possible opportunity, vacation in Door County Wisconsin.
