A real estate cycle-proven apartment industry executive for over 10 years, Joel Sanders is the Founder and Managing Broker of Nashville Apartment Locators (“NAL”). After starving as a professional musician (lead guitar/vocals mainly) while a Real Estate Finance major at the Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas, Joel picked up a real estate license and began working in the property management and sales of multifamily residential investment properties. He brokered over $7 million of those sales within 12 months while remaining a full time college student.
When Joel isn’t putting on loads of sunscreen or learning how to use social media, he spends a majority of his time working on apartment investment opportunities and overseeing operations at NAL. He has multiple prestigious real estate investment industry designations such as the CCIM and CPM. He has previously worked as a broker with Colliers International, a large international commercial real estate brokerage firm, and founded a successful turnaround apartment management firm in 2009, the bottom of the recession, which operated over 4,000 apartment units in 3 states.
