Joe was born in Vallejo, California to Joey and Lani Castaneda and is the middle of three children. He has spent half his life in Hawaii, living on Oahu for 3 years when he was younger and residing in Hawaii since college. Joe graduated from De La Salle High School in Concord, CA. Although the school is known for their Championship winning football program Joe was a varsity tennis athlete and avid golfer. After high school, Joe joined his family in Hawaii and graduated with his BBA from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, double majoring in International Business and Finance.

Joe got his start in real estate in 2012. Having moved over 15 times between California, Hawaii, and Arizona, he understands how stressful the moving process can be. After being in real estate for a year, the opportunity arose for him to use his finance degree and he transitioned into the mortgage industry to become a mortgage loan originator. In 2015 he was voted “Best in Real Estate: Mortgage” by Honolulu Magazine as well as voted as one of “Hawaii’s BEST mortgage loan officers” by the Honolulu Star Advertiser. He now brings his finance, mortgage, and real estate knowledge to help guide his clients through the real estate transaction. Joe also uses his mortgage and real estate background to help educate Hawaii’s 1st time home buyers, frequently giving talks to UH Manoa students on the real estate industry and home buying process. He is also a teaching partner at the Hawaii Home Ownership Center. In 2016 Joe was part of a Top 100 Real Estate Team and in 2016 & 2017 Joe was voted Best in Residential Real Estate by readers of the Honolulu Magazine.
