About Joel Madden
Joel Madden is originally from the small town of Onaway in northern Michigan. This sleepy little town of around 600 is the same town where his parents and grandparents grew up. In 1991, at age 19, Joel moved to Florida where he obtained a business degree from the University of Central Florida. He went on to obtain his real estate license in Florida in 1998. Taking a leap of faith, Joel relocated to Atlanta with the sole purpose of entering the real estate market. Not knowing the city or many people proved to be quite challenging, but he stuck it out and has prospered. Initially, he worked for The Condo Store and specialized in condo sales. He later went to work for Beazer Homes selling new construction townhomes and single family properties. When the recession hit, he began working for REOSouth where he assisted in the disbursement of bank owned assets. As the market began to improve, he made the move to join the In-Atlanta/Rick Hale and Associates team at Keller Williams Midtown in 2012 where he has been ever since. His production puts him in the top 5% of Realtors nationwide and he holds his Associate Brokers license as well.
