About Us – Joe & Colleen Lane
Joe and Colleen Lane have been part of the Tri-Cities real estate market for over 20 combined years and through those 20 years. They have owned and managed several businesses that have all focused on providing first-class customer service. In the real estate industry, that kind of commitment to the customer puts your needs and wants first in all steps along what can be an involved real estate transaction process. That long-standing practice has made the Lane Real Estate Team the premier Tri-Cities real estate team.
Setting A Standard
Much of the positive reputation Joe and Colleen Lane have earned can be traced back to little things like returning phone calls promptly, listening to customer concerns, arriving on time to appointments, and simply showing the kind of common courtesy that can sometimes be lacking in other industries. Buying or selling a piece of property can be a very personal experience and that has created the very personal approach Colleen and Joe bring to every transaction they are a part of. It is simply a matter of recognizing what needs to be done to get a sale or purchase done and doing just that with a professional, efficient method.
That standard also takes on a bit of a formalized approach through the National Association of Realtors code of ethics. Incorporating that code and taking to heart one of the main tenets of the code, the fact that property is a foundation for all that is done, and its efficient and fair distribution is of the utmost importance, is what sets Joe and Colleen apart from other real estate teams. Realtors have an obligation to serve each and every customer in the best possible way and Joe and Colleen truly have taken that approach to their real estate practice.
Behind The Curtain
Aside from providing that high level of service, Joe and Colleen Lane are also long-standing and respected members of the Tri-Cities community. Real estate is a large part of life in the Lane household, but it is certainly not the only activity. Joe was a United State Marine for six years and took away from that experience a profound sense of leadership and communication that serves him to this day. Also helping shape his personality have been his experiences working with Bethel Church in Richland and other volunteer posts ranging from leadership to men’s and children’s ministry.
With experience that ranges from general construction to property management to 1031 exchange transactions, Joe has done a little bit of everything and can bring that vast reservoir to any real estate transaction. Joe is a graduate of Christian Heritage College in El Cajon, Ca., with a degree in Business Management and Marketing. He is a member of the National Ski Patrol and has, most importantly, been a proud father to five children ranging from 16 years to 16 months.
Colleen started her career path in real estate by way of the mortgage industry and from a post as a loan officer. That background combined with Joe’s contracting roots got the Lane Real Estate Team started over 20 years ago with a rental property purchase. Colleen holds valid real estate licenses in both Washington and California and has done so since 1994. Colleen is also highly active in Bethel Church in Richland, working in a variety of volunteer positions, and of course, can also take credit for raising five wonderful children. Together, Joe and Colleen own and manage 22 separate rental units in the Tri-Cities and can take that hands-on experience and apply it to a wide variety of issues that crop up during real estate purchases and sales.
