Joseph handles various commercial, development and vacant land listings.

After MSU, his entrepreneurial spirit steered him toward starting his own auction/sales company, Merkel’s Auctioneers & Appraisers. He states, “Property auctions are often overlooked as a cost effective method of accelerated marketing," which makes him an asset to Swisher Commercial as we continually strive to assist clients in the expedient buying and selling of real estate.
