Joey's focus on exceeding customer service expectations and going above-and-beyond to surpass the needs of his clients are comments that we frequently hear at our brokerage. We know that it's the Lowcountry's special brand of Southern hospitality that draws many newcomers to the area. He espouses this quality by gladly sharing his knowledge of both the area and the industry so that both those from "off" as well as life-long "been-yahs," get to experience this sentiment for themselves. His pride of, and love for, Charleston began at an early age; delighting family and friends with informative walking tours through downtown's Historic District from the age of eight years old! If you have a question on the area's topography, history or architecture, he just might have the answer- and if he doesn't, he's happy to find it for you. It's one of his favorite ways to share his love for this singular and beautiful corner of the world we're fortunate enough to call home.
A proud member of the "Cougar Nation," Joey earned Bachelor of Arts degrees from the College of Charleston in both Political Science and Communication (Corporate Comm./Marketing). Alongside his studies, he spent all four years as members of the CofC Cheerleading Team (Captain, 2 yrs.) and the South Carolina Student Legislature, while also having the honor of the student body electing him both as their Homecoming King and Mr. College of Charleston. Upon graduation he began his career in real estate with a multi-year stint at Island Realty, one of the area's largest vacation rental, property management and brokerage firms serving the East Cooper beach communities of Sullivan's Island and Isle of Palms. After beginning in vacation rentals he rose to become Director of Group Sales, where he oversaw the rentals and short-term leases of the high-occupancy and luxury homes divisions of the company's 500+ properties.
Affiliated with AgentOwned Realty since 2012, Joey knows the area's real estate market from the beaches to the Battery and all areas between. This has helped him earn the Charleston-Trident Association of Realtors' designation "Realtor of Distinction." He also is a proud member of the Charleston Top Producers' Club and an affiliated member of the Hometown Hero Project. Whether buying your first home or selling your fifth, a primary residence or investment property, he has the knowledge and connections to make your experience as pleasant and successful as can possibly be. This stems from his practice of not viewing each deal as just another transaction, but rather as a means to drive his rapidly growing repeat/referral business by investing in life-long relationships with all of the clients he serves; clients who know they can count on his insight and honesty as to how an intended move may positively (or negatively, if it be the case) affect themselves, their families and their portfolios.
Besides working full-time (and then some) in his intended life-long career path, Joey makes sure to enjoy life in the Charleston area with Wayne, his husband and partner of more than seven years. They are both active members in their home parish of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in the historic Ansonborough neighborhood. Together they greatly enjoy taking part in the experiences, history, culture and beauty that is afforded to them by virtue of calling the Lowcountry their home. He looks forward to the opportunity of helping you and your family do the same, so give Joey a call today to discuss any and all of your real estate needs!
