Why Hire Greenleaf Real Estate?

Joel and Christie Daniel are a fierce duo licensed as both a Real Estate Broker and Certified Appraiser that spans over 20 years of professional experience in the field. Together they serve Riverside and Orange County. Joel & Christie have built a luxury brand Real Estate Brokerage (Greenleaf Real Estate) that strives to give every buyer and seller a high-end experience.

“Greenleaf Real Estate was built from many years of successes and failures selling millions of dollars in real estate. Reflecting back, we wanted to build a company that focused on the customer and setting them up for success from day 1. Answering the phone, perfecting contract negotiations, keeping on top of technology, and listening to what the client actually wants are all things we strive for in every transaction.”

Christie has owned and operated her own appraisal business, “The Appraisal Store”, as a Certified Appraiser for 20 years. Joel has found that the assets they individually bring to the table have paired up perfectly to help streamline their client’s experience whether on the buyer or seller side of the equation. Their passion for the field and efforts to work hard in the best interest of their clients is evident upon first introduction.

Joel and Christie’s partnership spans beyond the office. They were introduced years ago by mutual friends on a boating trip. They have been married now for 10 years and currently enjoy living in Temecula. They continue to love travel and in 2018 they took a year off and traveled the world.

” We spent one year traveling the world. The Carribean, Mexico, Central America, Canada and Europe. We lived like locals, learned to appreciate everything in our life, spent thousands of hours editing, filming and documenting. We are both amazed at how our experiences have helped us grow and produce a business model for Greenleaf Real Estate that will undoubtedly bring success to every single one of our clients.

They also enjoy taking advantage of the wonderful vineyards in Temecula and have been known to be sighted at an afternoon wine tasting with friends and family.

A lifetime athlete and former college hockey scholarship recipient, Joel has managed to bring Christie into the sports fan area and she now proudly sports her very own Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers jersey. Trading in the hockey puck for golf clubs, Joel enjoys taking advantage of the plentiful golf courses in Riverside and Orange county. Of Joel’s many interests and talents, it is also interesting to note that Joel is also a nationally certified EMT.
