He took action to make his dream a reality by studying for and obtaining his real estate license in Hoboken, NJ. By 1995, Joe knew it was time to bring his vision to far more people than he alone could reach, so he opened the first Liberty Realty office. instilling in each Liberty agent their commitment to providing professional, caring, honest, and diligent service to each and every client.
