Hello! I am Joe Thompson.
I was born on Long Island, New York. I am the “middle” child of 10 children (5 brothers & 4 sisters). All of us born and raised in a small cozy house in Patchogue, Long Island (with 1 bathroom for the 12 of us to share!). I attended Catholic School for 12 years. I then attended New York University (NYU) where I obtained a Certificate in Data Processing. I then attended Hofstra University (for 14 years at night) where I graduated with a 4 year Degree in Business Computer Information Systems.
After working for several companies in New York City for 11 years, I moved to Alpharetta, Georgia with my wife and 4 children in 1994 as part of a job relocation and for a better quality of life. My 3 Sons and my daughter all graduated from The University of Georgia all with the HOPE Scholarship and are all successfully pursuing their careers. After a successful 35 year career in the IT Industry, I’ve decided to pursue my lifelong passion as a Realtor.
I have downsized from that 5,500 square foot house in Alpharetta to a cozy 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom condo in Buckhead. As a Realtor, I would like to focus on helping other empty nesters, like me, that would like to follow my footsteps and transition/downsize from larger homes in the suburbs to a carefree ‘Lock and Leave’ living inside the Perimeter where they can enjoy short commutes to work, fine dining, shopping, the Theatre and the Arts, all within walking distance, just as I have done.
As far as my free time goes, I am a Classic Car/Exotic Car enthusiast (I still own my first car that I bought when I was 14 years old!). I also love to travel the world so I travel to Car Shows and Car Auctions all around the United States and around the world. I am hoping to get to the Geneva Car Show one of these days.
