Joseph Lyons' passion is supporting people as they make the most important decisions in their life. In 2013 he supported 27 real estate transactions tallying over $10,000,000 in sales but his focus is on the people involved. Each of those transactions represent individuals and families who have upgraded, downsized, relocated, turned, or otherwise transitioned a major real investment with Joe’s support. Joe became a Realtor after strong recommendation of Cooper Realty’s Principal Broker and long-time friend, Ernest Cooper.
Joe was born in rural east Multnomah County on his family’s small 1 acre farm with 25 fruit trees, 5 vegetable gardens, a machine
shop, an old barn where his aunt raised “Bossie”, a cow. His grandma who lived next door made wine from the grapevines behind the house. Influenced by land use laws and changing family values, the old farm was sold and became a subdivision - named after grandma and grandpa, of course.
Joe’s career has included managing a $5 million law-firm in Lake Oswego, a 450 meal per day meals-on-wheels program, and a historic resource preservation organization. He earned his MBA in 2006 and two years later earned certification as a life coach in boulder Colorado. After wrangling attorneys, Joe decided to open his own coaching business which helped individuals start their own businesses, land life-changing career opportunities, and figure out ways to achieve the elusive work-life balance.
Joe became a runner a few years ago and has run numerous marathons and other reasons including his first ultramarathon from Grand Junction, Colorado to Moab, Utah, in June 2012. He recently fulfilled a lifelong passion and take a stab at stand-up comedy and enjoyed over 100 people laughing at him. He turned that experience into a multi-media project called My Real Portland. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his partner, Len, a graphic designer.
