J. Joseph ('Joe') Hatin, born in Vermont, bred and educated in Florida (UF, '91), came to St Augustine twenty-five years ago and jumped directly into the real estate appraisal field. His work with both residential and commercial properties soon led him into the expanded field of mixed-use property re-sale, purchase and investment opportunities, where his ability to connect up-to-date facts to no-nonsense speculation earned him a reputation as a top professional in the field. Armed with in-depth knowledge and experience, Joe formed a boutique real estate brokerage known as Saltwater Property Group in 2005, affiliated Saltwater Property Group with CENTURY 21 in 2016, and recently sold his company to First Coast Sotheby’s International Realty in 2020. Joe’s mission is to provide the most comprehensive residential and commercial real estate services and technology available in today's competitive marketplace. Joe and his family including his wife, Jodi, and two daughters, Harlow and Hailey, reside in St. Augustine Beach. Their connection to the community is obvious in this list of active memberships including the St. Augustine Rotary Club, the Arc of the St. Johns, the Florida PKU Network, the Family YMCA, and the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine. He is an avid outdoorsman and particularly enjoys fishing, boating and adventures that include his whole family. Joe is a licensed Real Estate Broker and State-Certified General Real Estate Appraiser. He is a strong supporter of advanced career education and rarely misses an opportunity to sharpen his professional skills set or enlarge his knowledge of a rapidly evolving market.
