Joe Evangelisti

Joe is a second generation builder and began visiting construction sites with his father, Rob, as a child. Since then, he’s always had the urge to be involved in real estate and be building things. This led him to joining the US Navy Construction Battalion – The Seabees. After serving multiple tours and racking up numerous service medals, he decided to return home and start his professional real estate career.

Joe has over 15+ years experience building and selling thousands of homes in the South Jersey area. Within this timespan, he has built himself an 8-figure real estate empire and has completed over $100MM in real estate transactions. He has since transitioned this passion and wealth of real estate knowledge into building state of the art Self Storage Facilities across the country.

Since then, the company has been building, renovating and selling hundreds of homes with Rob helping to lead the charge. As Legacy Developers began to take shape, it was a no-brainer that Rob would continue to play a vital role. In recent years he has begun to take a backseat to some of the heavy lifting being done, but he now oversees each of the new projects we bring down the pipeline.
