About Me: Joel has quite a varied background. It all started in Forestry with 10 years of work in forest firefighting, tree falling, logging, treeplanting, and brushing. After that, he got into small business ownership and operated the Revelstoke U-Brew for 6 years. Joel managed the whole business and staff and oversaw the production. During this time, there was some overlap with construction, carpentry and general contracting. Joel moved a home from Mica Creek to Revelstoke for himself and his wife and spent a few years fixing it up. It included a secondary suite and a garage. He also did all the landscaping, irrigation, fencing and sod as well. After this, Joel went to work in the oil industry of Northern Alberta for two years and travelled back and forth on flight rotation. He worked as a hydrovac, vacuum, and high pressure steam operator. Next up, was a half year hiatus with his wife, where they travelled around the world. It was during this time, they decided to move to Burton, BC. Joel recently received his real estate license and is working with Royal LePage Selkirk Realty in Nakusp, BC. He loves the Arrow Lakes valley and eagerly promotes it to anyone willing to listen! During his spare time, Joel is developing a flower market farm on their acreage in Burton with his wife, Kristi. They also manage and operate a full time nightly vacation rental in Revelstoke and are planning a second one in Burton. Joel has a lot of experience with both long term rentals and short term rentals, construction, renovations, equipment operating, land development, hobby farming, and landscaping. He would be eager to sit down and discuss your real estate needs.
