Joe joined @properties in January of 2017, before joining @properties he began his real estate career, working as a Broker and managing a team, at a smaller brokerage in the Lakeview neighborhood. After graduating college, he worked in social services and then in sales before realizing his love for real estate.
Joe’s passion for real estate derives from helping people with an important milestone in their life. He loves to educate people on the home purchase or home selling process, and make the process as smooth as possible for his clients. His goal is to make sure that every client is happy with their experience at the time of the transaction and down the road!
Joe has been in Chicago for over a decade and has worked and/or lived in many neighborhoods in Chicago, including the South Loop, Bridgeport, Rogers Park, Lakeview, River North, Humboldt Park, and Little Italy, and has helped clients with their real estate needs in many other neighborhoods. This coupled with his exploratory attitude means that he is intricately familiar with a many areas of the city, especially on the North and West sides of the city, although he does work in all of the neighborhoods.
You may see Joe around the city playing basketball, training for his next triathlon, working on his photography and cooking skills, or enjoying the many events and festivals around Chicago (especially in the summer!). He is a huge college and pro sports fan, and loves watching his alma mater, Iowa State, as well as attending any Chicago sports events. Traveling is an important part of his life and most recently went on a trip to Europe, and will be going back soon!
If you are looking to buy, sell, rent, or just talk about real estate or @properties, please reach out to me. I love talking about real estate and how I can help you achieve your real estate goals!

Barbie joined @properties in September 2020. She started her career in real estate in 2016. Back then, she was working with one of the leading developers in Dubai and specialized in selling off-plan properties (properties which would take 3-5 years to get ready) such as Townhouses, Condominiums, Hotel Apartments & Mansions.
Talking about her educational background, she has a Bachelors in Commerce from University of Mumbai and a Diploma in Event Management. Ever since her first job she has been into sales. Since she was from the sales industry and during her conversation with her clients she noticed how most of her clients, given an opportunity, would prefer investing into real estate in Dubai. This got her intrigued and she started studying more about it and finally realized that Dubai's market was something else as the opportunity was immense. So she pursued to get into it and finally, by December 2016, she got the opportunity to work with one of the leading developer's in Dubai.
Barbie understands what it is like to stand in her clients' shoes. Acquiring experience in sales and relocating several times - renting, buying & selling homes for her own - has offered Barbie a sensitivity towards her clients' journey, which can be attributed to the first-hand perspective she gained through her personal experience. Being a broker since 4 years in distinct markets, she has realized that real estate is a hobby and not a job.
Fast forward to December 2019, she got married and decided to move to the beautiful city of Chicago. Once in Chicago, she spent 6 months, understanding the market, the people, the culture, and then she got ready to jump in and get going to do what she loves the most, which is help people find what they would call it their home. She's very grateful to be a part of this amazing city and with her experince she would love to cater her clients to the best of her ability by providing a top class professional service in their search.
Other than real estate, she loves to cook. So she makes some finger licking fusion food and loves to experiment with distinct cuisines in her free time.
