Joey has been involved in real estate nearly his entire adult life. He purchased his first home at the age of 19 and currently owns many rental properties in the area.

Joey obtained his license in 2005 and worked with Coldwell Banker and Fehrman Realty before opening the doors alongside his wife to Rider Realty in 2020. Joey has a passion for real estate and can talk shop for hours. Joey was born, raised and currently resides just outside of Patriot, where him and his wife raise their blended family of six children. Joey enjoys collecting vintage items, camping, and fishing with the kids and is always looking for the next deal!
Kara is the glue that holds everything together here at Rider Realty. Her main goal is to always keep the office flowing smoothly. Not only is she the office manager, but she also goes out of her way to help every agent with everything that they need. Kara received her Indiana Real Estate License in January of 2020, shortly after her and her husband opened the doors to Rider Realty. When she is not in the office, you can find Kara at home with her kiddos. She enjoys spending time with her family, going to the gym and anything to do with animals!
Donita first started in Real Estate with Victoria House Realty, and then went on to open her own company in 2002 where she was in business for 18+ years. Selling real estate allowed her the flexibility to be a full-time mom and have a full-time career. She closed the doors to her company and joined Rider Realty in 2021. Her interest in Real Estate started after selling her first home. The housing market has always interested her, and the 20 years of experience she has under her belt can help someone no matter the market. Donita’s biggest compliment is getting that call to help someone and knowing that they trust her to help them in their Real Estate endeavors. When she’s not busy selling, Donita enjoys family, friends, photography, hiking, biking, and traveling!
