Originally a Southern California native, Joseph spent a decade up north in Sonoma County, where he discovered his affection for towering Redwoods, grapevines, and foggy coastlines. After working at various wineries in the Russian River Valley, he grew nostalgic for warmer climes and returned south to the sprawling suburb from whence he once came. After moving back to Los Angeles, he was hired as Operations Manager at Realty ONE Group, where he managed over 40 agents and oversaw every aspect of real estate transactions; from contracts, to arbitration disputes, title & zoning issues, and successfully facilitated over 200 transactions. His ability to create lasting relationships, along with his passion and dedication make him an indispensable asset. When he witnessed the ground-breaking technology and resources that Compass provides for its clientele, he decided to join them to establish their presence as a leading brokerage on the West Coast.
