As wine importer and owner/operator of five retail wine stores in New York, Joe was immersed in the wine business.All that changed when Joe decided to sell his stores and take on Manhattan real estate.
Since Joe made that decision he has certainly made his mark.Within his first year, Joe produced more money in a ten-month period than any other Citi Habitats agent.In the past six years, he has continued to build and apply his ambition to propel him and his agents into a new realm of success.
Most recently, Joe headed-up the expansion of Citi Habitats' West 72nd Street location-the second Citi Habitats office Joe has brought to new life on the Upper West Side.When he first started managing West 72nd Street in April of 2004-then known as the "Annex"-Joe was remotely managing Citi Habitats' other Upper West Side location at West 82nd Street with a team of agents.
Even though the Annex turned a profit in two months under Joe's team, the 20 desk office still needed an "in-house" manager.While this was becoming apparent, the Brusco Group, owners of the space below the Annex and whose account Joe had been handling for 1½ years, offered Joe the space at an attractive price.Joe knew that making the Annex a duplex would be a wonderful opportunity for Citi Habitats.
Joe brought the idea to Andrew Heiberger, Citi Habitats' founder, and in three days the decision was made: under Joe's direction, Citi Habitats would acquire the space, expand the Annex, and redesign its interior and exterior.
...
Joe is thrilled with 72nd Street's physical transformation and the opportunity to transform traditional sales."I've conquered rentals; now I want to conquer sales with this exceptional team that myself and Phyllis Pezenik, Sales Manager, have brought together," he says."We're going to elevate the traditional ‘boiler room' approach to develop the next generation of selling with seasoned brokers working in an upscale environment."
The Annex's swift expansion and Joe's decision to take on the project is characteristic of his entire career.It was this ability to step up to the plate that led him to become a Citi Habitats Manager in the first place.In January of 2002, Andrew Heiberger asked Joe to take over management of the West 82nd Street office.
...
Joe quickly accepted the position and within a year West 82nd was Citi Habitats' second most profitable office.
Joe attributes that great success to a number of factors."Assistant Manager Shari Forrest drove a ton of business, as did all of my agents," says Joe.
...
So it's no wonder that Joe has adeptly parlayed his successful wine business into an impressive real estate career.Joe has even found a way to keep his passion for wine in his professional life.There's a patio behind the duplex for clients that wouldn't be complete without the sound of corks popping as Joe and his clients toast the purchase of their new home.
