Biography

Joseph- Pipeline Manager

Joseph was initially aiming toward being a teacher, but ended up realizing his love for sales in the interim. He loved dealing with people and the feeling that he was helping out. It was in this first sales position where Joseph met Brian, 13 years ago, marking the beginning of their friendship. Since joining Fellowship, they have become more like family than friends.

Now, they work together. Joseph appreciates all the growth he has experienced through this connection, and the way that Fellowship connects with their local community.

“They are helping people. The people we deal with, their personalities are great, helping them and their families out is so nice.”

Married with three daughters, the oldest of which is in middle school, he is very active with his wife and family. This only increases his empathy for new homeowners, he remembers the nervousness he felt when purchasing his first home, despite being so well versed in the process.

“I take pride in helping families that are just like me. I am married with three daughters. Knowing what it was like when I bought my first house, and then passing that along to the people we talk to and deal with. I put myself in their shoes.”

“My experience with FHL for a refinance on my home was tremendous. They listened and accommodated every need I was trying to achieve through my refi.
