I’m glad you stopped by. My name is Joe Virnig and I’m part of RE/MAX Gold Coast REALTORS—the leading real estate company in Western Ventura County. I’ve been representing buyers and sellers of Ventura County real estate since 1986. Find me on the Web at http://www.ventura-county-relocation.com/. Whether you’re buying or selling, I’m ready to get started working for you. Call or email me right now! Ventura County is diverse and scenic and you’ll love living here. From the Channel Islands National Park right off the coast to the backcountry of the Los Padres National Forest, there is something to appeal to everyone. And Los Angeles is only about an hour away and Santa Barbara about a half hour.
