Joe Wright, Managing Broker
Joe earned a bachelor degrees in Creative Marketing Communications from Columbia College Chicago and an MBA from North Park University. Joe entered the real estate market as a homeowner and an investor back in 2007, when he purchased the first of his Chicago investment properties. Since then, Joe has successfully guided buyers, sellers, and investors who account for nearly $100 Million worth of Chicagoland real estate. In 2018, Joe was awarded membership into the Million Dollar Guild of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.
Early in his career in real estate, Joe recognized the need for a different type of real estate brokerage. The purchase and sale of real estate will, for most people, be the largest financial transactions they will make in their lifetimes. Due to the high earning potential, there are more than 25,000 real estate brokers in the Chicagoland area, many of whom lack the training and expertise to effectively guide their clients. Joe Wright Real Estate was subsequently built on the foundation of ethical behavior, continuing education, and passion for always doing what’s right for our clients.
When working with one of our agents, you can count on receiving expert real estate advice, timely responses to questions, and most importantly, a counselor who is committed to your success as a real estate owner or investor. Our agents truly care more about your financial and personal goals than they do their paychecks. We treat you like family!
To contact Joe, please e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), call, or text (312-593-8854).

Nathan Jagitsch, Broker
Nathan grew up about 100 miles west of Chicago in Dixon, IL. He attended Carthage College in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and moved to Chicago several years ago to take a job in the airline industry. Nathan currently resides in Logan Square with his dog, Walter. He was drawn to Chicago for the culture and the personal and professional opportunity it possesses. Nothing can beat the festivals, the art, the food, and the music of this amazing city.
Nathan was born and raised a Chicago Cubs fan, and during the season you will find him hanging around the corner of Clark and Addison cheering for the Cubbies. (While he’s willing to work with Sox fan’s, he won’t promise that won’t throw a few jabs about who rules supreme among Chicago’s baseball teams!) When he’s not cheering on the Cubs, he loves traveling around to experience different cities and countries all over the globe. At the end of the day, he always returns home to his favorite city…Chicago!
Nathan is passionate about real estate, and particularly client relations and client satisfaction. In addition to his knowledge of the local market, his work ethic will set him apart. Working with Nathan, his commitment to excellence and satisfaction will be on display from start to finish.

Dave Johnson, Broker
Pastor Dave Johnson (yes, in addition to being a rock star real estate broker, he is also a pastor at Church of the Beloved in Albany Park) graduated from The College at Southeastern with a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy and Biblical Studies. Dave also earned his Masters of Divinity at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina.
He and his wife Julie moved to Chicago from North Carolina following a call to raise their family here, while also planting a church. They have four children and enjoy all of the amazing family friendly activities that Chicago has to offer. A fun fact about Dave is that he loves the cold Chicago winters. (No, that wasn’t a typo. We aren’t quite sure what’s wrong with him…no one likes Chicago winters!) Dave also likes to play the guitar, golf, try new foods, and travel to other countries. He has become a big Cubs fan since he decided to move to Chicago and while he believes that his moving was the reason the Cubs finally won the World Series…we think he might just be a bandwagon fan, but we are still investigating!
Most importantly, Dave is extremely hard working, and he cares so deeply for each and every one of his clients, their friends, and their families. Helping people buy and sells homes has truly become a passion of Dave’s, and he is blessed by every opportunity to walk through the buying and/or selling process with his clients. Working with Dave will put you in a great position to make a wise investment, and you will likely make a new lifelong friend.
To contact Dave, please e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), call, or text (872-800-0811).
