Meet Your Realtor®, Joe Struzzieri
I spent most of my youth in Norfolk, Virginia. I had a lot of ambition and dedication to be bigger than what my town could offer. I left my hometown to see all I could accomplish after graduating high school.
I immediately enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. With perseverance and persistence, I graduated top in my class as an air traffic controller. I served eight years at Miramar and had the honor to serve our country and travel the world. I have a broadened perspective of cultural differences after traveling to Africa, Kuwait, Qatar, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Greece and Germany.
After my time in the Marine Corps, I became a police service officer for Chula Vista. My passion to be the best propelled me to graduate top in my class again, this time at the corrections academy where I was awarded Honor Grad. I thoroughly enjoyed watching the job change and see the jail go through its many transformations over the years. It was time for me to resign after seven years of service to become an entrepreneur and use my Bachelor's Degree in Business Management from University of Phoenix.
In 2003, I briefly studied architectural drafting at ITT Tech due to my love for design and architecture.
My wife, Erika, and I owned and operated a candy store, Royal Candy Castle, for several years in La Mesa. We envisioned a company that brought happiness to its customers and employees. What better way to accomplish this goal than with a candy store. The support we received from the community, other businesses and city council was greatly appreciated.
Today, Erika and I are homeowners in Chula Vista. Our daughters, Lorena (22), Brooke (13), and Samantha (8), attend San Diego State University, Mattawoman Middle, and Hedenkamp Elementary. Lorena is a Biology Major, Pre-Med, and on her way to becoming an amazing Neurologist. Brooke and Samantha attended the Dual-Immersion program at Hedenkamp. Erika, a San Diego native, is the Vice President of Marketing and Customer Service at All Pro Bail Bonds. She is attending University of Phoenix to obtain her Master's Degree in Business Administration.
I became a Realtor® with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to be of service to home buyers and sellers who require assistance with all their real estate needs. I pledge to be knowledgeable, engaging, and hardworking for my clients. My goal is to be the best and to apply all the resources available to me to better help you.
I know that referrals from you, your family and friends are the sincerest form of flattery, and I would appreciate it if you shared my name and number with anyone who might benefit from my services as their REALTOR®.
