They have an 11 year track record of buying and selling hundreds of millions of dollars in luxury homes around the world. They are buyers & marketing experts – not agents. Their proven, cutting-edge marketing strategies help sellers and realtors sell luxury homes faster than anyone in the industry.
Since he can remember, Joe Rickards has had two passions – real estate investing and marketing. Flat broke and straight out of university, Joe bought his first property with no money down. He went on to make a fortune in Canadian real estate over the next two decades. Joe succeeded in building corporations with partners such as Andrea Lucas, the former Director of The World Bank, and has billionaire Bill Bartmann on his company’s board of advisors.
Although he became a self-made millionaire in his late twenties, Joe didn’t have an easy start. He was raised in a dysfunctional family in a poor farm home on the Canadian praries. Driven by his battered self-esteem, Joe worked hard and went on to graduate at the top of his engineering class and climbed the corporate ladder at leading Fortune 500 companies over the next 13 years. He then left his engineering career to pursue his passions full time.
After having business struggles of his own, Joe learned that most businesses fail due to a lack of effective marketing. Realizing that marketing is the hidden secret to achieving business success, Joe spent over six figures personally studying cutting-edge marketing strategies with leading business and marketing experts such as Dan Kennedy, Jay Abraham and Chet Holmes, to name a few.
Joe’s eureka moment that inspired him to jump on the social media bandwagon came when he found concrete proof that social media has turned conventional sales and marketing on its head and that most businesses today are missing out on the next big thing in marketing. Together with partners, Joe developed some of the most powerful viral social media marketing strategies available today. As a result, they are creating a flood of new paying customers for their consulting clients across the US, Canada and the UK.
Joe and his wife and best friend Olga enjoy a full life and live in a golf course community in the Okanagan Valley – British Columbia’s vacation playground.
