About Joe Salazar

Sales Representative

I grew up on a farm in Listowel Ontario. For 10 years my parents taught me work ethic, family values, and how to work the fields with a tractor at age 10. What they didn’t teach me was how to crash it. I learned that on my own. I joined the Army at age 17 and went on to help people around the world including Bosnia, Croatia, Rwanda, and Afghanistan. I was an Operating Room Technician which involved assisting in surgeries, treating the sick and injured.

After 25 years of dedicated service I decided that it was enough of being transferred every 4 years, settling down with the family was a priority. It was definitely a rewarding experience. We take life for granted. After experiencing the diverse lifestyles abroad, I began to appreciate what we we have here in Canada.

I got into real estate in 2008 and managed to achieve Master Sales award in just 2 years and Diamond Sales award from there on. I have a passion for what I do. Clients love that I’m detailed and that I do my research before submitting offers on properties. I hate to overpay for a property so why should my clients.

I intend to carry my values, work ethic and nursing skills to Real Estate. I think People Skills are important in this industry. Being personable, intuitive and a good listener.
