Joseph S. Maggio, Managing Broker and Grand Centurion Realtor
I relocated to the Delaware Shore in 1996 after many years of vacationing from my native home in Baltimore. After serving, three Mayors for the District of Columbia Government as a Computer Specialist and Grants Manager in the Office on Aging I reached my goals as one of few Employees nominated for the Employee of the Year (Theodore Hagey) in a pool of over 40,000 plus employees.
I managed and initiated many technical programs for the District including the maintenance of the Client Service Information System housed at Georgetown University.
Under my leadership of the technical department our office was hailed as a "Diamond in the Rough" for our tracking and responsiveness to the needs of the District Seniors by the current and past Administrations.
I spent my first few years at the beach figuring out where I would best fill my niche and followed my partner into the Real Estate business as a new construction specialist at many sites in and around Rehoboth Beach. With a slight overlap in timeline I managed to work 5 years with a commercial airline during some of the most trying times in the business. After 911 I focused all my attention on the ground and made Real Estate and Real Estate Investing my Chief focus.
Through my leadership our team, The Maggio Shields Team, has won many sales awards and established us as industry leaders. You will find in our diverse team many educators, nurses, some doctors, community leaders, and retired professionals who like the way I do business. We also have a full team of language specialist including Farsi, Italian, and Spanish.
I hold a degree in the Applied Sciences, am a member of Phi Theta Kappa, past President of the Russian Language Club at Juniata College. I had been past contributing editor for the Juniata literary magazine Vassar, sponsor of Camp Rehoboth, Love, the Beebe Art Auction, appointed member of the committee formed to establish the Architectural Guidelines in Rehoboth Beach. Also co-owner of one of Rehoboth's best bar and grill's.
The Maggio Shields team was founded in order to provide first-class realty services in the Delaware Beach area. Only the top agents in the industry are selected to work at this location - agents that express ingenuity, maintain personal integrity and cooperate among brokerages. These agents are offered competitive commission splits and a unique, enjoyable work environment.
The Maggio Shields Team is a true example of a successful partnership that has seen gross sales in excess of 45 million dollars (2004). We pride ourselves on our position as neighbors and partners to the community; not only selling real estate, but offering guidance to investors and home seekers looking to establish roots in Delaware's beautiful beach resorts.
We owe our success to a dedicated team and well-established business principles - and, of course, to the good people of Delaware.
In November of 2007 The Maggio Shields team has come home full circle to roost as a partner with Mann and Sons, Inc. centralizing their location in downtown Rehoboth. Through the experience and the leadership of Joe Maggio and Bill Shields our team can now offer our customers an even more extensive network of Real Estate Brokerage services to include summer and year-round rentals and property management. After achieving a great amount of success and satisfaction, in addition to receiving numerous awards from the corporate office, our team made a group decision in establishing our own brand. Our team is comprised of a number of dedicated, hard-working individuals who share a passion for real estate and who appreciate good ethical business standards. Each member of our staff holds a great professional respect for the other team members, and we all share a common desire: to leverage the advantages of team buying and selling for our clients and for each other.
We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of the momentous task of buying or selling a home, and we can offer our customers this guarantee: when choosing the Maggio Shields team, you can expect the best service possible - and we'll do even better than that.
