After nearly 25 years in the consumer finance industry, Joe DeLoach earned his real estate salesperson license and entered the world of real estate. With invaluable skills and a desire to serve clients at the highest level, Joe teamed up with his wife, Valerie, and founded Why Realty Group. They built the boutique firm with an emphasis on serving the community, and, in 2021, put up a shared transaction volume exceeding $25 million.
The “why” behind everything Joe does is his client's best interests. This could mean sharing his extensive industry knowledge to guide them to make the right decisions or being honest about the downsides of a property they love. Joe and his team develop innovative, personalized strategies for each client and provide the same level of luxury service no matter the size of the transaction. For Valerie and Joe, real estate is much more than business. They aim to cultivate a fun, welcoming environment — one where clients become friends and friends are treated like family.
Joe is a relationship-driven agent specializing in serving homebuyers, sellers, and investors in the Triangle area and beyond. He listens intently to his clients’ needs and seeks ways to help them meet their goals. Joe goes above and beyond for his clients, jumping in to help with whatever will make their lives easier. It’s uncommon to find a real estate professional who chases relationships, not dollars. Still, when you work with Joe, that’s exactly what you get, along with an extensive understanding of local markets, a command of cutting-edge tech, wide-ranging industry connections, and expert negotiation skills.
When he’s not making his clients’ dreams come true, Joe enjoys spending time with Valerie, their four children, and two golden retrievers. He supports the East Carolina University Pirates any chance he gets and volunteers for multiple organizations, including Meals on Wheels of Wake County, the Wendell Chamber of Commerce, and the local Methodist church. In addition to serving as commissioner for the Town of Wendell board, he is president-elect and membership director for the Rotary Club of Wendell, North Carolina.
