He brings expertise in financial coaching alongside familiarity with Northern Virginia, Maryland, DC, Arlington, Alexandria, and surrounding areas. Whether you need a VA loan or any other home financing, you can count on him for an inquisitive, passionate approach.

Before he joined Embrace, Joe worked as a portfolio manager with Gladstone Land Corporation, a real estate investment trust traded on the NASDAQ, as well as the General Services Administration (GSA) Public Buildings Service. He wore many hats between those roles, including appraisal review, capital project management, financial management, and program management.

He earned a BBA from James Madison University and his MBA from Georgetown University, with a certificate in consumer analytics and a concentration in real estate.

    We couldn't have better things to say about our housing hunt and mortgage loan experience with Joe in Washington, DC. He was very communicative and always available when we needed him. We felt we were making solid financial decisions with Joe's expertise and guidance, especially with the size of the mortgage loan we were after.
