Joel Dumes

Senior Managing Director Investments

Co-Founder of Dumes | Teets | Mullowney Group, Joel M. Dumes, joined Marcus & Millichap in 2003 as a retail investment specialist. In his tenure, he has earned numerous achievement awards and has been recognized as one of the leading real estate brokers in the Midwest/South. He has successfully brokered over $3B of real estate including enclosed malls, shopping centers, single-tenant net leased properties, office/industrial and student/multifamily properties in central US Markets.

From Wal-Mart Supercenters to 250,000 SF outlet malls, single-tenant medical buildings to 200,000 SF GSA buildings, there is no property that is too complex to analyze for disposition or reposition. Joel and his group focus on clients' needs by acting as advisors. Sometimes it makes sense to sell and other times it does not. Sometimes it makes more investment sense to hold or refinance. Each of his clients are different in their needs and wants within their real estate portfolios.

Joel graduated from Miami University in 2002 with a double major in both International Business and Marketing. After spending a year in Tokyo, Japan, Joel decided to come back to the states and begin his real estate career with Marcus & Millichap. He quickly moved up the ranks within the firm and now holds the much sought-after designation of Senior Vice President of Investments and Senior Director of the National Retail Group as well as the Net Leased Properties Group. In addition to his real estate brokerage activities and professional affiliations, Joel is highly active in the community. Joel, along with his wife and three children, work with the Jewish Federation of Cincinnati and organizations like Dreams Come True and Starfire.
