Joel's Real Estate Career started in 2009 when he was approached by John Curri to join Curri Properties and assist their team with their constant flow of Buyers and Sellers. Joel quickly obtained his license and trained by John Curri to work side by side with him on his personal team.
Joel's consistent service and satisfaction from his clients over the years have earned him numerous referrals which have become the heart of his business. Joel has a passion for connecting buyers with the perfect properties. He is able to listen to client's wants and needs and match them with the best possible properties, while never settling, and meticulously negotiating all aspects of the transaction, ensuring a successful sale. He is also excellent at examining properties for Seller's and marketing these properties creatively and with local knowledge to achieve the maximum sales price for his Seller's. Real Estate can be time consuming and frustrating for Buyers and Sellers in today's market, but having a full time agent such as Joel can be great for taking the weight off client's shoulders, alleviating stress.
Joel is a 20 year plus resident of Brevard County and cherishes the Florida lifestyle. He relishes in the fact that he can raise his children with his beautiful wife Charlsie in such a gorgeous setting. Raised in South Melbourne Beach, being a continuous Beachside resident and having family in Melbourne Beach and Suntree/Viera has helped Joel acquire many useful contacts and built relationships that are beneficial for both himself and his clients. Joel has truly become an important asset for Curri Properties and reins as Top Company Sales Agent for 2016!
Joel has been involved with every purchase and sale I have done in Brevard County. I will never use anyone else again. Within 9 days of my home I listed for sale with Joel he had found a buyer! We expected our last home to take 4-6 months to sell as it was listed for well over $1 Million dollars, nope only 9 days!!! He even worked overtime to find us storage and a place to lease since we never thought our house would sell so fast. ALL AGENTS aren’t the same......Joel worked tirelessly to be available to both show me new homes when my schedule allowed and was always available to show my listed house regardless of schedule requested (this is big as buyers want to see listing when it’s convenient for them not always what is convenient for agent). I can’t stress enough how hard Joel works and it makes a tremendous difference in getting a great deal on new home or listing your home for sale. Joel clearly has shown us NOT ALL AGENTS ARE THE SAME and most wear your ears out with everything you want to hear and don’t do 2/3 of what they say.....absolutely not the case with Joel, he has not only won me over but my entire family as well. Thanks Joel, you have us as customers for life.
Joel was very very professional in our Home purchase in Merritt Island through out the entire moment and beyond closing on our dream house. Every step of the process he was ahead of the game, especially during negotiations. He goes above and beyond with customer service in my opinion. You just will have no worries with the transaction as he is in the drivers seat.
Need a house in MLB ... Joel is your man. He's extremely knowledgeable on the local market & trends and was always available to answer all of our questions throughout the entire process. With his vast knowledge, he was able to get us a us a house in our desired school district at a price point that met our budget, but also was in line with current market conditions.
There are times when things don't go quite as expected when house hunting. In my case, I chose the wrong lender (against the advise of Joel) and because of that we had a delay on closing, which ultimately led to us loosing the deal. There was a lot of time, energy and money invested by all involved, so needless to say we were pretty disappointed when it fell through. However, Joel really went to bat for us and worked very hard to make sure we were well represented. It was during this time of adversity that I understood the difference between your standard real estate agent, and someone like Joel, who goes above and beyond the call of duty to advocate for his clients. Today... just a month after the deal fell through, I'm sitting in our new home writing this very review and feeling gratitude for how everything played out because Joel found us an even nicer home at a better deal. He hooked us up with one of his preferred lenders, who got us cleared to close in about a 3 week time period with a VA loan (which is ridiculously fast). Simply put, we couldn't be happier or more grateful for our friend and chauffeur extraordinaire, Joel Ludlow. I simply can't say enough good things about him. It's evident that he loves what he does and most importantly, he really cares about his clients. This is the guy you want in your corner when things go awry... and it turns out he's also the guy you want to celebrate with when they go right. ;-)

Joel has helped me with the purchase of two homes and selling one home now. I truly appreciate all of his dedication and hard work. He has made the home buying process an enjoyable experience. He is a professional and reliable. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is looking for a top notch real estate agent!
Joel did an outstanding job helping my family achieve a smooth and successful cross country transition. He looked out for our best interest every step of the way. Thanks Joel for never giving up and being a terrific friend.
-Eric and Angila Burke
Joel was simply an exceptional agent. He never pressured me to go in any specific direction but he gave me all the information to make a good choice. My favorite Joel story is when he went over to a property we had looked at with his ladder to move the light bulbs around to the various sockets in order to test the seller's claim that the sockets all worked. He did this without even asking me to go to the property. That is customer service. My previous agent had answered all my questions, but Joel provided unrequested information that allowed me to make the best decision. Thank you Joel!
I've bought and sold well over half dozen homes over the years and had a variety of both good and bad experiences doing both with realtors. I met Joel while looking for a home in central Florida that he showed. I was instantly impressed with both his knowledge and demeanor. Joel is a pure pleasure to work with. He anticipates issues and followed through on requests I made of him, not in a day or two but often in minutes. I've never had any realtor work as hard as Joel. I've already recommended him to several close friends that are thinking of relocating. I give, or rather I should say, Joel has earned my highest recommendation.
I highly recommend Joel if you are looking to buy or sell . He was very patient with us and accommodating with all of our requests in what we were looking for in a new home. Joel found the perfect house that fit all of our needs and he was on top of everything to ensure we would close with in 30 days since we were in a time restriction. Thank you Joel for all your hard work .

Joel's understanding of the local economy and real estate coupled with his work ethic and responsiveness make him a world class realtor. Joel successfully helped me purchase two properties and find a tenant for another.
Joel went above and beyond for us. He took care of many items for us as we closed remotely. When our VA inspector noted issues Joel took the initiative to correct the issues immediately. I strongly recommend him.
Joel is no doubt the best Realtor I have ever worked with. Always ahead of me. Helped us to get loan, home insurance.. and prompt on everything.. thank you Joel...
-Sam and KJ
Joel was able to find me a great house close to my children's school, in a good neighborhood, and well within my price range. As a single working mother of three I don't have a lot of spare time. Joel was fantastic at working around my schedule!
Joel was an excellent Agent and irreplaceable resource for us during our purchase process. This is our 3rd home purchase and one of our toughest because of other vendors involved but Joel was able to keep them on track and see the sale to the finish line. Thank you Joel.
Joel was always available to answer any questions, quickly handled any issues that arose, and overall left us feeling like we were in great hands throughout the entire home search and buying process.
Joel was one of the best realtors I have dealt with. Over the past year my husband and I have dealt with about a half dozen. When we asked questions he responded promptly. He was also very knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Joel Ludlow is a real estate agents real estate agent. He is very knowledgeable resourceful proactive and responsive. I was working with an extreme time constraint, Joel made certain the impossible happened on schedule and under budget. He directed me to a bank owned foreclosure and we closed in 13 days. I would highly recommend Joel Ludlow to anyone in search of a realtor or unhappy with their current realtor. A1++ First class start to finish!!
We would like to thank Joel Ludlow for his excellence, professionalism, attention to details and for his dedication to the Real Estate. We move to Brevard County last year without any knowledge about the area and Joel helped us find a place to rent .He provided us with a wealth of knowledge about what each area offered. After six months we were ready to purchase our new home and he was on top of everything since day one. We sent him a list of over twenty homes we wanted to visit. He didn't miss a beat when we handed him the list and in just 24 hours he had our day and weekend packed with scheduled viewings. Joel had our e-mail box full of new houses and price changes that were tailored to our interests every day. He either did his own review of the area we were looking to buy our home and following our criteria he found our dream home. He helped keep the ball rolling and helped us cope with the stress when we began to worry. We closed on our new home last week and are extremely happy with the home and the experience. Thanks a million Joel!!!!, We could not do it without you!!!!. We will highly likely recommend Joel Ludlow as one of the best real estate agent in the East and Space Coast of Florida. If you are really looking to go through a buying or selling process without any stress, If you are looking for an experienced and professional realtor...He is the one!!!.Thank you again Joel !!.

I would highly recommend Joel in handeling any real estate transaction. Because I bought a foreclosure and the listing agency was outsourced from India it made the process especially painful. I felt Joel did everything in his power to expedite the purchase and was on top of solving issues all the way to the end and even after the closing. I felt that the purchase would have been impossible without the dedication from the people at Curri properties.
Professional and pro-active. Very detail oriented. He'll be handling my next real estate acquisition. Stayed in constant contact via e-mail, phone, text. Very accesible-promptly returned all calls, answered all queries.
Very professional, and has many professional contacts to get the job and any questions done. Joel had all the answers from mortgage people, pool people, insurance you name it and he had it covered made my first home buying experience quick easy and stress free.
Joel Ludlow was an immense help in the success of finding and buying our first home. He was very knowledgeable about the houses he showed us. It was a direct reflection of his thorough research about the houses and the surrounding areas. My fiancé and I were first time home buyers and he took the time to walk us through the process and provide us with a recommendation list of inspectors (pool, electric, general, pipes) and insurance professionals; this alleviated some of the stress that comes with the process of buying a home. I would highly recommend him to any home buyer. He gave us the peace of mind we needed when moving forward with our purchase and made us feel like he had our best interests in mind.
In the process of finding a home Joel was amazing. He knew exactly what my wife and I were looking for, and kept us up to date on all the options that met our "requirements". Prior to purchasing the home we live in, Joel called me and told me he was going to email me a listing that was perfect. I looked as soon as it came in and we went just 2 days later to see the property. A couple days later we put an offer on the house. Joel saved us about 25,000$ off of the listing price. He is not only a great negotiator but also a good person at hart. At every listing we brought our 10 month old and he was so accommodating and understanding. Joel is the Realtor I would recommend to anyone looking for a home. A true professional.
Joel was very kind and took his time to answer all our questions and show us everything we were looking for. Only had to see two houses that he picked out for us based on what we were looking for. He really nailed it. For buying our first house Joel made sure the process was painless and stress free. Thank you Joel.
-Chelsea Herring Rowe
Great service found the house I was looking for and was available every time I wanted to go looking. Great advice and will be buying my next house from him.
Joel had a great plethora of knowledge of the auction/ foreclosure process. Made it much easier! Our experience with Curri Properties was excellent. We were lucky enough to work with them 6 years ago on our 1st home purchase and there was no question who to call when it was time to sell and relocate. We made the right choice and we are very happy with the outcome!
Expectations were well exceeded. Joel is awesome! I've worked with Joel for 10 years and would definitely recommend him!
Joel was great. He sold us the property and subsequently sold it for us. He is knowledgeable and kept us informed every step of the way. The deal went smoothly and we couldn't have asked for any better. It was a pleasure to work with him. We would refer any friends or acquaintances to him without hesitation.
- Jan and Ron Kaiser
Joel is an exceptional real estate professional. I have worked with him on multiple transactions, and he always goes the extra mile for his clients. Not only is he great at negotiating the best deal for his clients, but he stays calm and cool in times of adversity. I would recommend Joel to friends or family members and that is the strongest endorsement you can get! A true professional.
-Bryan Troy -- Certified Mortgage Adviser for the Mortgage Firm
Joel was great to work with. He is knowledgeable, conscientious, reliable and "Always there when you need him." I would highly recommend Joel to anyone looking for real estate in the Melbourne, Palm Bay and beyond, area. Good luck Joel!
Joel was by far the best Realtor we have ever worked with. We had the pleasure of experiencing both listing and purchasing with Joel. We are so pleased to say both transactions were very positive. We got exactly what we wanted for our house, and it sold in less than 2 months. Our new purchase was in a time crunch, yet he still found the perfect house at a steal! His skills and resources were invaluable in both transactions. We cannot recommend him enough! Thank you so much for making the buying and selling process so smooth!
-Darren & Rachel Haefele
Joel is well organized and no nonsense. I was impressed with how his showings flowed from one to the next. This minimized wasted time and maximized the amount of listings we were able to view. Joel has his finger on the pulse of the local market. Once we selected a property, Joel was able to accurately gauge its value and assist us with making an offer that saved us thousands of dollars. Highly recommended!
-George Allred -- Active Duty Military
Joel found me a home in a few short months that was perfect for me and in my budgetary needs. He did not waste time showing me homes out of my budget. he negotiated with the seller appropriately and helped me with every aspect of the purchase up until the day we closed. It was overall a 100% positive experience and would recommend to anyone looking for a Brevard County Realtor.
My husband and I went through a divorce and had to sell our property. The house was on the market with another realtor previous to Joel, and we had very few showings and no offers made. Once we switched to Joel and Curri properties the showings started immediately and we are now a week out from closing. Through the whole process Joel was very understanding, and supportive. I had never sold a house before but with his knowledge and assurance I felt a lot better about the whole process. I highly recommend Joel if you are buying or selling.
Our family had a wonderful experience buying our dream home with Joel. We couldn't be happier with the home he helped us so much to get into. We required lots of patience given that we were purchasing with a VA Loan, the home specifications, and budget we had to work with. We ended up with a better home than we ever imagined possible for us. Joel was quick to show us new listings, that's how we snagged our forever home. I highly recommend Joel to anyone on the hunt for a new home.
Joel represented my husband and I in both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new home. Joel was knowledgeable, helpful and a pleasure to work with. When it came to the sale of our old house Joel used a professional photographer that made our house look so much better than any other listing online. At first I was skeptical of the list price he suggested, as I thought it was too high. He asked that I trust him and give him 30 days. We ended up with a full price offer in less than 24 hours!! For the purchase of our new home Joel was extremely patient. I had a long list of priorities and a small radius area of where we wanted to live. Joel showed us every house for sale in that area so that we would know what our options were. He was very knowledgeable about the county and the area and was able to answer any question I threw at him with ease.
Joel reassigned at both closings and walked us through every step of the process with ease.
Overall Joel made the process so easy for us. It was great working with him and I highly recommend Joel Ludlow as your real estate agent. We will never use anyone else!
Great Realtor, jumped through hoops to get me the house I had wanted for years! Then he sold my old house quickly, listed and closed in less than 2 months! And at the price I wanted! Cant recommend him enough. Excellent Realtor who goes the extra mile for you.
Joel sold our condo and helped us find just the right house. It was a very pleasant experience. He listened to us and what we were looking for. He was patient and we never felt that he was trying to 'sell' us on something. He was honest and helpful. We felt like he was looking out for our interests and that we could ask any questions and for any help. His experience and help were so valuable in our experience. He made the whole experience enjoyable!
-Doug and Linda
Joel is professional and very knowledgeable in the real estate industry we enjoyed working with him. He assisted us in purchasing our home and with his help things went well.
Great guy , awesome Realtor. Joel went out of his way to make sure my wife and I got the house we wanted. I will refer all family and friends to Joel at Curri Properties.
- Angel Gerena
Joel is a pleasure to work with. He listens, understands and is a strong representative for his clients. Joel has been both our buying and selling agent - proving professional support and service from both sides of the table. A consummate professional.
