America's Best Listing Agent
A Chicago native with blue-collar roots, Joe Niego was a star college basketball player and the second draft choice of the NBA's Houston Rockets. At the end of his playing career, he put the same drive into his real estate career and excelled as a top producer.
In 1992, he met Brian Buffini and the two quickly became good friends. Together, they developed systems to proactively generate referred business. In 1994, he started Niego Real Estate, which has captured 26% market share of the community it serves. Using these referral methods, he's sold over 2,500 homes and been identified by many experts as the best listing agent in America.
With his in-the-trenches experience, Joe now travels across North America sharing proven business-building systems and helping real estate professionals earn more than eight times the national average income.
Director of Corporate Development
J’aime is not only the Director of Corporate Development for Buffini & Company, she was once a client. She began her career in real estate in 1995 in Gilbert, AZ and began to double her income each year building her business by referral. She was then asked to manage her office and turned the business and culture around in less than 16 months, implementing Buffini & Company Systems office-wide. She now helps develop our training programs and is one of our featured speakers. In her personal time, she loves chasing after her two boys, spending time with her husband, and relishes in the simple pleasures of life; good food, great wine, and even better company. She’s constantly learning the art of balancing a successful career and family life, while also finding time for quiet contemplation.
