Best Real Estate Agent to Sell My Twin Cities House
In 2001 I was a senior at St. John’s University and wanted to help my Mom choose the best real estate agent to sell her Twin Cities house. She had a modest bi-level home in Plymouth, MN and it was finally time for her to downsize. The first thing we did was ask our friends and family who they thought was the best realtor to sell a home in Plymouth, MN. We got a few names and set up interviews. We also called the agent that we thought was the best local realtor because we would get a post card in the mail every other month and would see his signs all around town. To make a long story short, we interviewed four agents and were not impressed. We analyzed the cost to sell her home against the effort and expertise that was presented to us. My Mom looked at me and said “Joe, you can do this job better than any of these so called experts, why don’t you get into real estate?” The rest is history.
A Passion For People
Joe Houghton has been a full time realtor since graduating St. John’s University 17 years ago with a degree in Business Management. If you ask him, he will tell you there is nothing he would rather do than work in real estate. In his own words, “As a real estate professional, I combine my passion for the business with my genuine interest in people to serve my clients with integrity and advocate for them as if they were members of my own family.”
I am grateful that I decided to be a real estate agent when I was 21 years old. It has been an incredible journey and feels like it is one of the things I was put on this earth to do. I’m a passionate person, I love helping people, finding deals, connecting people, learning about people, learning about communities, learning about construction, home building, home design, digital marketing, and digital media. Being productive makes me happy and staying motivated keeps me humble. I couldn’t have designed a better career for myself.
