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 on vacation 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 a member of the CofC Cheerleading Team (Captain, 2 yrs.) and the South Carolina Student Legislature, and had the honor of the student body electing him both as their Homecoming King and Mr. College of Charleston. 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, Isle of Palms and Wild Dunes. Beginning in vacation rentals, he rose to become Director of Group Sales, overseeing the vacation rentals and short-term leases of the high-occupancy and luxury homes divisions of the company's inventory of over 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, and shares this knowledge to the benefit of his list of clients now numbering in the triple digits. His sales volume helped him to earn membership in the Charleston Top Producers' Club and the Charleston-Trident Association of Realtors' designation "Realtor of Distinction."
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, rather as a means to drive his rapidly growing repeat and 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, should that be the case) affect themselves, their families and their portfolios.
Besides working full-time (and then some) in his career, Joey supports area organizations including Historic Charleston Foundation, the Preservation Society of Charleston, the Alliance for Full Acceptance, We Are Family and many other. He also makes sure to enjoy life in the Charleston area with Wayne, his husband, partner and best friend of more than eight years. They are both active parishioners of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in the historic Ansonborough neighborhood, where Wayne is the Choirmaster & Organist and Joey serves at the parish and diocesan levels. 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. Joey looks forward to the opportunity of helping you and your family do the same, so give him a call today to discuss any and all of your real estate needs!
