Joey was born to recent immigrants from El Salvador. Joey’s birth parents wanted to give Joey a better life than what they felt they could offer, and found a wonderful family who adopted him at birth. Joey’s mom and dad are from New York. Joey has an adopted younger brother, who also joined the family at birth. Joey and his brother were raised by two loving parents who instilled the core values of family, loyalty, integrity, dedication and trust.
Joey grew up in Mar Vista, and is a first generation Californian. As he was growing up in LA, he learned his way around quickly, a skill that comes in handy for showing properties to clients. Joey knows where to find the hidden gems in this dynamic city. As a child when carpooling to school, Joey was fascinated by the houses he would pass, and by the age of 13, developed an interest in earning his living selling houses by becoming a real estate agent. Joey watched his parents invest in rental properties, as well as buying and reselling homes for a profit.
In his teens and early adult years Joey began the early stages of a career as an actor for TV shows, films and commercials. During his middle school and high school years, Joey was a champion swimmer. After earning a high school diploma at age 16, Joey then earned an AA from community college in business marketing and psychology. His next step was to study for the real estate exam and earn his real estate license as an agent.
He has proven to be a dedicated hard worker always putting clients’ needs first. There is nothing that makes Joey happier than seeing the smile in clients' eyes when they see a property that they love, and then when we close.
