He has been involved in over 15,000 successful design projects resulting in billions of dollars in new home sales. His progressive approach to “selling homes faster” comes from his innate entrepreneurial spirit.

Throughout the years, he has developed “a science” that enables homebuilders to increase absorption rates and maximize options sales and, for multifamily developers increase occupancy rates while maximizing their square footage lease rates. Joe has created strategic partnerships with top industry players to offer the most comprehensive and effective design and merchandising tool in the industry. He has also owned and operated several successful synergistic business that created additional profit centers for builders and developers, throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Florida.
