Joseph is first and foremost a quality individual with a good spirit and exceptional level of generosity. But beyond that, he knows how to b ... uild and run a business. He grew his prior employer's business exponentially before leaving to start his own. He knows customer service, vendor selection and management, and production. And he is pretty well versed in social media as well. A good partner for sure.

I have known Joseph Mapes for several years and have always trusted his judgment. When purchasing suits he was always comfortable in tellin ... g me what works and doesn't work, never feeling like I was just another sale and getting advice from a true friend. His profound knowledge of the industry and listening is also what sets him apart from the rest.

They're my advisor  •  Executive Vice President, Water Tower Financial Partners a member of MassMutual Financial Group.
I have personally and professionally known Joseph for almost 7 years. There are many things that impress me about him, but the ones that st ... and out the most are the little things that most business owners and sales professionals at large do not commit to on a daily basis. He is a great active listener which allows him to make the best recommendations that consistently align with the client's priorities and current objectives. He follows up and returns calls when he says he will and provides a 100% satisfaction guaranteed policy that is actually honored. Everyone seems to promote that offer, but few honor it in the true spirit it is intended in. In my 12+ years as a business owner myself, I have consistently acknowledged that advisors I trust and respect the most will truly realize, when I finally introduce them to my brothers. With Joe, I never hesitated to make that introduction. Our firm at large wishes him continued success.
Paul J. Lytle
We worked together  •  Director: Legal, Risk and Compliance Practice, CEB and Principal, Law Offices of Paul J. Lytle.
I have worked with Joe for approximately ten years. Joe is enthusiastic about his business, knowledgeable about his product, and, above all ... , unquestionably honest. As a result, I have referred countless friend and colleagues over the years. Joe also possess a strong business acumen. Apart from our formal business transactions, Joe has often acted as a trusted sounding board, and as a valuable connector.

Joe is highly talented professional with exceptional skills in the areas of customer service, client management, business development and at ... tention to detail. He is a warm and trustworthy individual with whom I would readily seek advice and do business.
