Joe Kennedy

Owner/Broker | Vinings Realty Group, LLC
Joe Kennedy, owner and founder of Vinings Realty Group, isn’t your typical real estate broker. He has worked in the real estate industry for over four decades and recognized the need for more highly-skilled real estate professionals in the industry early on. He saw that additional skills training and professional continuing education courses were needed due to the ever- increasing complexities of real estate transactions.
In response to this observation, he actually marketed the nation’s first computer-based training program, as well as –in cooperation with the Atlanta Board of REALTORS Educational Foundation — authored and developed the second such computer-based training system, known as the ProStar pre-license salesperson training system.
“Purchasing real estate, in the form of a home or business site, is the single largest investment a person makes in his or her lifetime. People deserve to work with real estate agents who have the professional skills and specialized knowledge necessary to locate and secure property that best fits clients’ unique needs and investment goals,” Joe explains.
In our fast-paced culture, technology and market trends continue to evolve and Joe keeps developing new innovations to positively impact the future of the real estate industry.

Whether it’s a physician, auto technician, or real estate professional, today’s consumer requires and desires to work with an industry specialist. Despite this, only a small percentage of real estate professionals have the knowledge and expertise to provide the specialized real estate services you deserve.

When making an investment as important as one involving real estate, you need focused, specialized real estate representation — not simply generalized services. Joe’s deep involvement in professional education gives his clients a unique and powerful advantage. When you work with Vinings Real Estate Group, you’ll have full access to a team of highly trained professionals — each of whom have the knowledge and expertise necessary to provide you with specialized, high-value representation.
