About Joe Rockey
Joe went to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and double majored in accounting and finance. The majors were chosen because they give intrinsic skills that are needed by all businesses–everyone needs to know where their money is and how to get more of it. Finance covered the part of how a company gets more money. However, the best way is through sales. Knowing that sales are the key to every business, Joe worked a variety of commission-only sales positions throughout his time at Duquesne.
Following graduation, Joe worked for three years as a personal financial advisor. In the first year, he was the office’s “rookie of the year.” In the second year, he was the “underclassman of the year,” and by year three, Joe left to create his first real estate business in 2011.
Since then, his businesses have created revenue from properties in a vast array of methods. Some of the more common ways his company creates revenue are by performing land lording services, selling investment grade properties to other investors, and renovating for sale properties.
Outside of his professional world, Joe is a married man with a newly-born son. In 2017, along with Father Boniface Hicks, they created the podcast Father and Joe. The goal of their podcast is to bring individuals closer to God. Joe is also an avid axe thrower–in 2019, he finished 192nd in the International Axe Throwing Federation Championship in Toronto.
