Goyena, Joe

  Joe Goyena, 2008 Inductee

One of the town’s most successful real estate sales agents, Mr. Goyena has made it a practice to give back to the community that has provided so much for himself, and his family team of Realtors. He and his team have sold $372 million worth of property during his 23 years in real estate and have been Sales Team of the Year at MCO Realty for 13 out of 14 years. He believes in conducting business ethically and delivering good customer service long after the sale. For many years he annually hosted a dinner party for clients at the Community Center, and they were the first to host an event in that facility. When the Town stopped funding the Easter Eggstravaganza, he announced he would pay for the event. As a Kiwanian, he organized the Fountain of Youth Club which provided trips and activities for teens. He also was SantaClaus for 13 years at the Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Day Parade and was a charter member of the Chamber Ambassadors. He was selected as one of the Town’s top 20 volunteers during the first 20 years of its history and he and wife Carol were the 1995 Chamber Business Persons of the Year. A popular singer, he has sung at many town events as well as funerals and weddings at no charge. His motto is “We Get Results Because We Care!.”
