Born and raised in Garland, home-mortgage extraordinaire Joe Boggs has experienced success in banking for 21 years. He and his wife, Patsy, moved here from Allen with their three children three and a half years ago. His son is a sophomore at Texas Tech, and his two daughters, ages 12 and 14, are students in the Lovejoy ISD.
Boggs has become a very active member of the community for over a decade, serving many years with the Allen Fairview Chamber of Commerce.
“In what I do for a living, I do networking, so I have been to every chamber meeting around. And not to say anything negative about others, but the Allen Fairview chamber - it can’t be beat,” Boggs says. “Getting involved in the chamber also got me involved in Leadership. … It blew me away. I had no idea what I didn’t know. I recommend that to anybody. It built my drive for leadership - to help in the community. I do way more volunteering now. I help wherever I can, and it was all from that little first step into a leadership program.”
Boggs is licensed in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma, and provides especially informed insights about the booming real estate market that has him working 80-plus hours weekly these days. With that in mind, he also tells how easy and rewarding it is to take a short drive to unwind with his kids during weekend hunting, fishing and hiking getaways in the country.
Not that his own home here hasn’t become a calming retreat: “All of our friends when they come over say, ‘Wow! You live in the country and the city!’,” Boggs says. “If I go to Dallas or if I am working around other areas, when I drive through those gates to my house, my blood pressure drops 10 points. That has been wonderful for me. … And honestly I just want all of my friends and family who have that opportunity to share in that same thing. It has been great for me.”
