Broker Associate

Joaquin Avila’s passion for real estate extends well beyond his skill at helping clients buy or sell a home. For Joaquin, each client is his highest priority, and he tackles every deal with a commitment to create a memorable and pleasant experience, from initial negotiation to final closing. His approach to real estate is straightforward: stay up to date on the market, educate clients on market trends, and be 100-percent transparent every step of the way. Give clients the confidence they need to understand and feel good about what may be their largest investment of a lifetime.

Today, Joaquin proudly works with a phenomenal team of brokers and has established a stellar network that includes top-rate lenders, inspectors, contractors, appraisers, builders, and other service providers. He adeptly adds value during each step of the buying or selling process and continues that commitment well beyond closing. “I strive to provide a forever service,” he explains. “I keep in touch with clients and will be there to assist with any needs they may have in the future.”

Real estate, Joaquin believes, is a powerful and provable asset that helps people realize their dreams. “I believe in the power of real estate because it’s about so much more than buying a home. It’s a huge investment opportunity that offers people a path to achieve wealth and financial freedom,” he says. Indeed, Joaquin walks the walk, following the example set by his uncle, who showed him the value of investing in real estate. Joaquin himself is a savvy investor, and is particularly excited about investing in Denver, the place where he grew up and will always call home. “I LOVE Denver,” he says. “This is my city, and I will never leave. I love everything about Denver, beginning with the people. My roots here run deep, and I am profoundly grateful for everything the city has to offer, from the talented public servants to the incredible amenities. We have it all, including proximity to the mountains, unbeatable central location, all the major sports teams, great food, four seasons, and an economy poised for continued growth and prosperity.”

Joaquin’s successful agency, headed by Wilson Leonard, takes a refreshingly sophisticated approach to the homebuying process. With more than 20 single-family homes owned by the company, clients in need of shorter-term housing can rent under flexible options while working with Joaquin and his team to find their next home. With his solid expertise in a variety of areas, including buying and selling, leases, and land values, combined with a deep knowledge of the Denver metro area, Joaquin helps clients successfully navigate the nuances of a highly competitive real estate market by educating them on what is needed to make a successful offer.

Prior to embarking on his real estate career, Joaquin worked as an EMT and firefighter in Louisville. The transition from helping people in emergency situations to helping them achieve their life goals proved rewarding, and a bout with cancer at the beginning of his career was instrumental in shaping his approach to the business. “My battle with a life-threatening disease showed me that no matter how crazy or stressful a situation may seem, there is always a solution and a way to work it out. I learned to value the position I’m in and realize how lucky I am to be able to do what I love and to do it well. I’m excited beyond belief to work with my team, and I have the utmost respect for my clients. Best of all, I get to use my knowledge of the city to help my clients live their best lives!

In his spare time, Joaquin and his girlfriend spend quality time with hiking and walking with their two Old English bulldogs. Fluent in Spanish, Joaquin enjoys reading, working out, traveling, staying current on investment trends and the evolving crypto space.
