Joe and Garrett asked me to write a bio for them. I’m a retired Realtor who is known for being a bit critical about things. That doesn’t apply to Joe and Garrett. Here is what I’ve noticed about them.
Joe does few things, if any, lightly. He is passionate about his work and is always learning. Besides keeping up on all things real estate, he is a voracious reader. There is never a time he isn’t passing on something he’s learned from the latest business authors.
Joe is an interesting mix of warm/casual and intense competitor. I was in his office recently right after he’d put a new property on the market. Unlike most agents who put the home on the MLS and sit back, Joe was on the phone calling the top agents in the area and excitedly telling them why this was a home they had to show their clients.
Joe’s enthusiasm is infectious. He loves to brag about his kids/wife and has an energy reserve that never seems to get tapped out. Call Joe at (805) 886-5735.
I believe a successful team happens, in part, due to complementary personalities and talents. Garrett brings to the table an almost child-like wonder for life and work. Not sure if being a new dad has to do with this as I think it’s just who he is.
Garrett has a gift for connecting with people. When you speak, you know he is truly listening. It is crucial to him that the team’s clients are not just happy, but delighted, and this starts with hearing what’s important to them.
Once Garrett knows what his client’s want, he is like a bloodhound seeking out the answers. Don’t be surprised if Garrett calls you with an answer to a question you were just thinking about. He can be a bit spooky that way. Call Garrett at (805)-252-2335.
Avi Becker is the newest member of the Santa Barbara Group. He was hired as a marketing intern in late 2017. Joe & Garrett loved his enthusiasm and suggested he think about a career in real estate. Obviously, Avi agreed and recently passed his licensing exams and joined the Santa Barbara Group in November 2018.
Avi is a Boulder, Colorado native whose passion for the environment and ocean brought him to UCSB. He comes from a family of environmental home specialists, where his Dad owned and operated an eco-focused window and door business. Avi became interested in real estate during his senior year at UCSB, when he and a team developed a home energy application as part of an entrepreneurship competition.
With Avi comes amazing passion. An excitement that you, as our client, will feel. Whether he is helping you find the perfect home, advising you about home efficiency ideas, showing you the best surf spots or inspiring you towards achieving your goals, you will enjoy your time with Avi. Joe and Garrett certainly do!
In his free time, he loves to surf, pick up trash from the beach, and inspire others to take action and help make the community a better place.
