Meet Our Own "Jay-Z"
Hello, I’m Joe Ziccardi, real estate professional, avid sports fan, and a proud grandfather of seven.
I’m originally from Maple Shade, New Jersey, where I grew up, attended school and graduated from Villanova University. After a 28-year career in sales with The Coca Cola Company, I took an early retirement and moved to Southwest Florida. My wife Barbra and I love to travel - we’ve been all over the world… but there’s something special about the tropical climate and green Gulf waters of Southwest Florida that we love to call our HOME.
Together, we have three children and seven grandchildren all living here in the Fort Myers area (besides those who went away for college). It’s a blessing to have my family nearby and to see my grandchildren learn and grow. I especially enjoy watching their local high school sporting events and traveling to see their collegiate level of play.
While working 17 years in Cleveland, Ohio during my time with The Coca Cola Company, I had the chance to manage accounts with professional sports teams such as the Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Indians and Cleveland Cavilers. I have always enjoyed meeting clients, talking with customers and looking for ways to better meet everyone’s needs. In fact, my sales experience and natural knack for communicating with people led me out of retirement and into the real estate industry in 2008.
Since receiving my license, I have been working on Sanibel Island, focusing my practice on real estate in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Islands. As a member of the McCallion & McCallion team, I’m able to use my knowledge of the market and experience in sales to better serve our clients. Our team has specialized staff members, working to help you enjoy a smooth home buying or selling process. We love Southwest Florida, and would love to help you find a place to call home as well.
It’s a blessing to have my family nearby and to see my grandchildren learn and grow.
