The Kott family laid down its roots in Orange County more than 80 years ago. Joel learned the finer points of business by watching his father, Paul, make a lasting impact in the community as a leading agent and broker. He couldn’t help but notice how hard his father worked and how truly passionate he was about his career. Today, these same traits can clearly be seen in Joel, yet his driven nature inspires him to keep pushing his business further. “I realized if I could include my dad’s successful old school work methods and ethics in to my new-age knowledge of technology and networking, I had a great chance of taking this to the next level,” he says.
Throughout his youth, Joel played baseball and was always a great athlete who put as much effort into practice as he did game time performances. While attending Cypress College, his team won the state championship and he learned a great deal about himself through the sport. “Drive is ingrained in me,” Joel says. He ultimately graduated from Cal State Fullerton and then set his sights on real estate. At first, he worked alongside his father to learn the ropes—the Kott family traditions of exceptional service—but he knew that true success would only come when he ventured out on his own and created his own opportunities. That’s exactly what he did.
What drives Joel most as a real estate professional is the chance to help others make the most of their opportunities. He’s always been a great problem solver and if you put a goal in front of him, you can be sure he’s going to give his absolute all to achieve it. That’s why he listens to his clients and takes the time to understand what matters most to them. “I get to interact with friends, families and clients on such a privileged and trusted level with one of their largest investments,” Joel says. “Handing over keys at the end of the transaction is a very special day for my clients, but it’s a very special day for me, as well.”
