About Me

If you have ever felt that a Real Estate Agent didn't invest in YOU, you will find that to be one of the many differences between Joel and other agents. Personalized service, hard work, and an investment in YOU are some key characteristics of Joel and his team! If you are looking to purchase a home, Joel is committed to working with you 7 days/week to find just the right home and to negotiate both the best price AND the right terms for your new home. That this may be your largest purchase to-date is not lost on Joel! Likewise, if you are ready to sell your house, Joel invests 50% of revenue back into marketing his client's homes, and limits the number of homes he takes on at any given time, ensuring that you receive the ultimate best investment of service, money, and resources! You will get the best price possible for your house, AND you will get it in the shortest time!

Born and raised in Rochester Minnesota and Southeastern Minnesota, Joel Thiem works 7 days a week for his clients, supports his local communities, and cherishes his beautiful baby Granddaughter Violet!

Not your average run-of-the-mill Real Estate Agent, Joel is a MN State Licensed Realtor, holds a MN State Real Estate Broker’s License, and has earned Bachelor’s Degrees and Master’s Degrees in Marketing, Management, and Leadership. Joel is a member of the Lions Club, helping with the community, and he is a member of the Southeastern Minnesota Realtor’s Association (SEMAR), the Minnesota Realtor’s Association (MNAR), and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

Joel supports Habitat for Humanity and has supported similar charities that paint and repair homes for the elderly and disabled through donations and participation. He has also been involved in several residential rehabilitation projects and has both owned and managed income properties.

Real Estate is Joel’s passion, his business, and his favorite hobby! Many of Joel’s clients become great friends and he enjoys keeping in touch regularly! Selling 3 times the number of homes as the average real estate agent, Joel works hard to make himself available to his clients, provide them with steady feedback, and to get the absolute best price in the shortest amount of time for his clients, whether buying or selling!

Sellers: Joel has agreements with the major real estate websites that allows his listings to take priority premiere positioning so they are easily found. Why? Because 95% of buyers find their next home on the Internet! You won’t have to click through 8, 12, 30, or 40 pages to find your home if it is listed with Joel. In fact, about half of the homes that Joel sells are homes that other agents were not able to sell! Joel believes strongly that “you have to spend money to make money” and puts his money where his mouth is! So many agents today rely on simply putting their client’s listings on the MLS and having the listing hopefully picked up by third party websites, as the major part of their “marketing campaign.” On the contrary, Joel decides the best strategy for selling each listing and spends 50% of all revenue on strategic marketing activities that are proven to work, analyzing and making changes all through the process, and at no cost to you! In addition, unlike most agents, Joel and his team actually limit the number of listings they take on at any given time in order to provide the highest degree of service to their sellers and provide another layer of motivation to sell their client’s homes as quickly as possible and for the highest price!

Buyers: From first time home-buyers, to move-up buyers, to downsizers, investors, and everyone in-between, Joel really listens to his clients! What are your wants? What are your needs? Where do you want to live, and so on! Need lender approval? Joel can set you up with several lenders that work with the type of home loan best to suit you! Lenders and other professionals suggested to you by Joel are offered up because they are the best! In no way does Joel accept any type of compensation from those vendors he recommends and Joel is happy to work with any lenders, inspectors, title companies, contractors, etc. in which you have already established a relationship! Particularly if you are a first-time home-buyer, Joel will take the time to discuss each step of the buying process and where they fit in the timeline and purchasing process! You are not alone in what can otherwise be a seemingly overwhelming live event! Whether it only takes 1 or 2 showings, or 20 showings, let’s find the perfect home for you!
