Joseph Homes - Joseph Rajah

Joseph Rajah

CEO

Joseph founded Joseph Homes in 2008 after years of serial entrepreneurship spanning property, events and NGO work. Starting his first business aged 14, Joseph is yet to have a ‘proper job’. He considers himself completely unemployable by traditional standards, so has no choice but to be CEO.

He has steered the ship through turbulent markets, growing the company dramatically in 10 years. With a focus on creativity, innovation and controlled profitable growth, Joseph is working to build on the company’s success over the next five years.

In his spare time, Joseph works on his cunning plan to have more spare time.

Paul Dipino MRICS

COO

Paul is a member of the Royal Institution of chartered surveyors and has 25 years’ experience in the property industry. He has experienced the market as an agent, developer and investor which helps him take a broad, strategic view of the industry. Paul joined forces with Joseph to form Joseph Homes in 2010.

As COO, Paul makes sure growth is managed effectively by leading the team to innovate and think differently. He is passionate about doing things the right way, from design through to delivery. This principled approach has led the company to multiple industry awards.

Paul is a dedicated outdoorsman, and is always dragging his two young children out climbing, scuba diving and camping with him. Weekends see him on the sidelines at Richmond Rugby club wondering why he wasn’t as good as his son.
