Joe Manausa is a Tallahassee native who graduated from Leon High School, earned his bachelor's degree at the United States Military Academy at West Point, served in the army and then returned to his hometown to raise a family and start a business.
He worked in the real estate industry for more than 20 years before branching out and starting his own company. Instead of structuring his brokerage like a typical real estate agency, which consists of independent contractors working on commisison, Joe built his business the same way any Fortune 500 company would; with salaried employees who work as a team in highly specialized departments.
With his background in Computer Science and a passion for statistics, he ensures that every employee in the company is educated on the latest information that will impact the real estate market. Like the programming you hear on WFSU, Joe's blog provides relevant, easy-to-understand information about the local market to Tallahassee residents, which is why it's ranked as the #1 real estate blog in the nation.
That's why Joe breaks the data down into easy-to-understand concepts. Whether you're buying, selling, investing or just interested in the market, sign up for Joe's blog to get the latest Tallahassee real estate updates, straight to your inbox.
Did you know that there are more than 2,000 licensed real estate agents in Tallahassee? Did you also know that the majority of these agents only sell 6 homes per year, meaning real estate is something most local agents only dabble in?
When it comes to buying or selling your biggest investment, you need to educate yourself. Find a brokerage with agents who sell hundreds of homes per year, understand the local market and know both the TBR and NAR contracts like the back of their hand.
You don't want to lose the deal, or leave money on the table, due to an inexperienced agent.
While Joe's salary-based business model sets him apart, there are 3 key components to his company that benefit sellers and buyers.

John handled this important transaction with a professional demeanor. As an attorney in Elgin, IL I often times work with Joe Manausa Real Estate because it, like your office, does things right.
I couldn't be happier with my recent experience with Joe Manausa Real Estate. My mother was recently looking to downsize to a home more manageable for her age etc.
I live out of state and I had concerns about my mother (in her late 70's) buying a home by herself. I have had negative real estate experiences in the past and I was worried her agent would not be working for her best interests. So I planned a trip into town from The Midwest and arranged to meet and interview multiple companies to help my mom.
After meeting with Kevin and his team, I could not have been more impressed. They not only provided us fantastic market information, but they also took the time to ask the right questions on how to best help my mother. Her needs were #1. The other agents we interviewed made the meeting "all about them" and although my mom was not going to spend a fortune, Kevin made her feel like she was the most important customer in the world.
I left town feeling confident that my mother was in good hands with Kevin, Garrett, and the rest of the team (being military Veterans didn't hurt either).
Sure enough their actions backed up their words. They found her the ideal home for the next chapter in her life in only a couple weeks. The process was seamless and communication lines were open to keep me informed too (thank you Cay!). My mom is extremely happy. It's refreshing to work with professionals that have integrity and know their craft. I'd give 10 stars I could!!
