Joseph ‘Joe’ Davis grew up in Puyallup, Washington and began investing in real estate in his twenties. This started his passion for real estate which, years later, would become his career. Prior to getting his real estate license, Joe has worked a variety of jobs: retail, public sector (15 years at WSDOT), a small business owner and as a licensed health/life insurance agent. Every position he worked in the past, helped prepare him for his real estate career now!
As for real estate, the first property he bought was a single wide (10 ft. by 50 ft) mobile home, on its own lot. After that, he rented the mobile and bought a 4 plex. By living in one of the units, he got paid to live there! Joe went on to buy a duplex, several single family homes and managed all of those rentals himself. He also bought vacant land for investment and two HUD/Bank owned homes. Eventually, he sold all the rental properties. In hindsight, he should have kept them but paid a Property Management company to manage them!! Regardless, the knowledge he gained managing and maintaining his properties was invaluable. He now shares all that experience with his clients.
Joe was also fortunate to own a few second/vacation homes, in Oregon and Washington. Having owned vacation properties, he understands the challenges AND joys of vacation home ownership! Central Oregon is the perfect place to have a vacation home! Use it when you want and then rent it as a vacation rental when you are away.
Joe’s first trip to Bend was in July 2007. It was love at first visit. The incredible weather, low traffic, great people, and outdoor recreation were tough to beat. He moved to Bend full time, in July 2009. He loves the area, what is has to offer and is truly blessed and grateful to be able to live and work here.
In closing, whether you are looking to buy your first (or second) home, a rental or investment property, land to build on, or that perfect vacation home, Joe can help. Please contact him today, to see how he can be of assistance with all of your real estate needs
