Joel Christie, Sales Representative

I've called Hamilton home for over 5 decades. My wife is from Glanbrook and we've been busy for the past 20 years raising our son and our little dog named Bailey. I grew up in the east end and still call the Rosedale neighbourhood home. I graduated from Delta High in the 70's and Humber College in the 80's. My picture may not be familiar, but my voice might be- you may remember me from my 25 year career on the local radio. I've had the pleasure of being a part of The Frank Team since 2009. I love the challenges and rewards of helping people buy and sell property. I know home buying can be very stressful, but with our expertise we take that on and make it as easy as possible for you. The best part is knowing that at the end of the day I've turned dreams into reality.

Patrick Scanlon, Sales Representative

I grew up on the West Mountain and attended Westmount High School, followed by Mohawk College. In my younger days I worked in a variety of trades where I developed a knowledge of home construction that helps in my real estate career today.

Over the last decade my wife and I have bought and sold a number homes spanning across the Hamilton Mountain. This is where I discovered a love for real estate and as the saying goes: 'If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.'

When I am not at work my time is spent with my wife and our two beautiful daughters. Between the two of them you can find me either at the gymnastics club or on the sidelines of the soccer field.

Being on The Frank Team, one of the top teams in Ontario allows me access to a team approach and over 50 years of combined service and experience. Whether you are buying or selling your first property I will provide you with service that is second to none, making your experience as seamless as possible.

Being a resident of Hamilton my entire life, I truly believe that it is the hidden gem of Ontario and I strongly believe you deserve the best service the first time around.
