Comfortably retired from the corporate world, Joe Alvarez found that something was missing from his new daily routine: people. He missed the conversations and problem-solving that he did so often throughout his career of providing technical support to clients in the gas, oil, and metal industries.
With his experience and a knack for customer support, Joe found his post-retirement calling as a real estate professional. His bachelor’s degree in computer science and management and his 35-year career in tech support have defined his core values of organization, structure, dependability, and attention to detail. After 10 years in real estate, he’s still driven by a desire to assist people, especially first-time buyers and Spanish-speaking clientele. He enjoys bringing clients through the entire process, from preapproval to handing over the keys to their first home.
Joe’s success has dubbed him a Platinum Agent, a premium designation that provides him with accelerated response times and additional marketing and promotional support. The extra assistance is welcome as Joe works hard to exceed the expectations of a seller hoping for the best return on investment.
In his time off, you’ll find Joe relaxing around his home — gardening and landscaping! He also gets out to the golf course and travels throughout Texas. Best of all, he adores spending time with his grandchildren. And at the end of the day, if his mind wanders back to real estate, he can always ask his wife, Delma, for advice; she’s been a REALTOR® since 2005. Together, they share more than 25 years of real estate experience.
