Joe Kiser - Owner + Designated Broker
“People don’t care what you know, until they know you care”.
Joe Kiser grew up in the Puget Sound area raised by parents from small town Kansas. His summers were spent helping out on my grandparents’ farm and gas station. He was taught the importance of good mid-west values like working hard and always treating people with respect and honesty. He was also taught that his word is the most important thing you have to offer anyone and he strives to follow that principle every day.
Like most people, he fell into his sales career by accident. He started in the car business immediately after high school as means to paying for college. Joe excelled in the customer service aspect of helping customers find the vehicle that fit their needs. He then quickly gravitated toward the operational side of the business learning the details of solidifying loans. After several years in the car business, he went to work for the financial side of the business managing dealer accounts and strengthening relationships for them.
Joe moved into consulting for home installation after deciding that he valued the relationship he built with clients more than with a corporation. He has sold high-end window systems and roofing for both currently lived in homes and new home custom construction. He enjoys and thrives in the one on one relationship and has been told by many that he should transition into real estate.
One of his greatest assets is the ability to create and foster trusting relationships, to really get to know his clients so he can help meet their needs and desires. His mom has always said that he has never met a stranger. His friends have nicknamed him “The Mayor” as it seems everywhere he goes he tends to bump into a friend or meet a new friend. More than anything, he feels that this sense of ease and comfort and trust with others has been the backbone of his sales career; he has never considered himself as a salesman.
Growing up, he saw his dad as an example of this in his role as a local small business owner in insurance. he would watch as he stopped and visited his customers. He stayed connected and was in touch with big events in their lives. He was their friend and as he worked for them, he put them at ease. He focused on building lifetime relationships not sales and numbers. As their agent, he built confidence through professionalism and consistency.
Joe’s desire is the same: to build lifelong relationships with his clients through helping them with their real estate needs.
No matter where you are in your real estate cycle – be it your first home, downsizing as children leave the nest, vacation cabin in the mountains or investment for retirement – he wants to share in your excitement.
