Joel Schemmel

Comprehensive knowledge of the Sarasota area real estate market, strong business acumen and an affinity for luxury properties have established Joel among the top 1% of realtors in the Sarasota area. He takes great pride in having marketed and successfully sold many of the Area’s most amazing properties. After a professional career as an attorney and tax consultant both in Chicago and in Europe, Joel and his family moved permanently to the area in 2003. He could not think of a better place to live and raise a family.

Joel and his team are well known in the real estate world and are currently ranked among the top agents in Sarasota based on closed sales. In fact, the Schemmel Property Group has set a number of sales records and has been the top producing team with the Sotheby’s affiliate every year since 2008. Professional backgrounds, innovation, market knowledge, and persistence are the primary elements of their success. Joel’s career also encompasses over fifteen years working with Arthur Andersen, Andersen Legal, and the Ernst & Young Law Alliance both in the USA and Europe. Joel was an International Partner within each of these organizations and immediately before returning to the USA, was managing partner of a 45-attorney law firm based in Central Europe.

Joel obtained his law degree from Chicago Kent College of Law and his accounting degree from the University of Iowa. He is a registered attorney in Florida and Illinois, and is a certificated C.P.A. in the state of Illinois.
