Joe Atkins

Joe, Charity, Donovan and Cameron.

Joe Atkins and I held hands — sweating and terrified. Then we ran, screamed, and jumped off the top of a giant platform, into the trees. Not exactly how you get to know your average Realtor, but then there is nothing average about Joe.

Don’t worry, that scene ended well. We were just zip-lining on a 103-degree August afternoon as part of the 2012 class of the  Texas Realtors Leadership Program (TRLP). Since that day I’ve watched Joe grow into one of the most exceptional leaders and Realtors in the industry.

“Every agent loves Joe,” Ebby Halliday Realtor Julie Pillans said. “Joe is just a good guy.”

Joe was born and raised in Lake Highlands and currently lives in Lakewood with his lovely wife, Charity, and his two adorable boys, Donovan and Cameron. He’s the broker/owner of Joe Atkins Realty, a boutique real estate firm.

The apple does not fall far from the tree. Joe grew up in the real estate business.
