Joe Van Antwerp

Owning a small business for the past nine years has taught me the value of meeting the needs of our clients.  My motivation and determination to not only meet, but exceed my clients' needs and expectations are what have made me successful!  By focusing on positive results and fostering each relationship, whether you’re a client or a business professional, helps to make business run smoothly and efficiently.  Real estate transactions are no different.  There are many facets to the real estate transaction and having someone who knows how to walk you through the process and guide you along the way is a very important component, maybe even the MOST important!

I’ve spent the last 9 years as a landman in and around the overhead utility industry as owner and president of V3 Energy Group.  I’ve led teams of agents to accomplish the goals of our clients and worked diligently in those efforts to complete projects on time and within budget.  Real estate is a very big component to the overhead utility industry and my experience working with landowners, team members, and our clients, have led to successful outcomes.  The addition of working in the real estate industry is natural fit and very rewarding.

I grew up in Traverse City and currently live, work, and play on the west side.  My wife Kellie and our 4 children, Gabrielle, Zach, Liam, and Sophia are the most important people in my life and have been instrumental in my success over the years.  I grew up playing hockey and golf.  I played hockey for over 40 years and coached my kids' hockey teams for 4 years.  I’ve since hung up the skates and have taken up more golfing in my time away from running my business.

My relationships with people in banking, title, and mortgage industries, coupled with my love of Northern Michigan will fit well with your Real Estate needs in finding the house that fits you and your family.  Let’s get started together!
