As a young professional, Joel was known for his management and sales skills for high end luxury fashion brands, Jimmy Choo and Louis Vuitton are to name a few. When Lara and Joel decided their daughter would be the first Oregon Native of the family, Joel left his busy New York life as a real estate professional and transitioned into Farmer Jo-Jo! Better known as the “Gator” on the farm, Joel spent his first farming season as the animal whisperer, crafting custom risen beds for flowers and vegetables and helped with the overall day to day life on the farm. As a bi-coastal family, Lara and Joel continue their lives between the Rogue Valley and New York City with the hopes to be fully immersed into the farm life within a few years. When Joel is not on the farm or selling top New York real estate, you will find him on a tennis court or volunteering at the US Open! He has a deep passion for the game of tennis, and often will you find Daniel and Joel going head to head on the courts!
