About Me

Hi! I’m Joel Harris, and if you’re reading this, we are both in on a secret: Port Aransas is one of the most beautiful, family-friendly, fun destinations in the US.

I’ve lived and worked all over the country as a schoolteacher, school principal, management consultant, education philanthropist, nonprofit executive, and tech founder. Yet my favorite place and my favorite experiences were all in Port Aransas, so, we moved our five children and our lives to the beach and have not looked back!

I now spend my time and my energy sharing this passion for the coast with vacation property owners, helping them realize their goals, maximize earning potential, and providing their guests with an extraordinary boutique-like experience. I work with amazing clients who know our little Texas beach secret, and I’d love the opportunity to meet and work with you!

What I Love About Port Aransas

When I’m not connecting personally with owners or ensuring guests in Port Aransas have extraordinary experiences, you will find me surfing, playing with my kids at the beach, fishing, and helping real estate clients buy and sell homes.
