Having met in Sylvan Beach 28 years ago, Joe and Lisa share great memories and passion for the community. They love spending summers on the lake with their 6 children, Nick, Alec, Max, Bella, Alie, and Katie.

Joe’s expertise comes from the car and real estate industries. He is the owner of Harley-Davidson of Utica and Adirondack Harley. Lisa’s career was spent in the hospitality industry traveling to major restaurant chains all over the world. Together they own a real estate company, JLC Promise, and are responsible for developing Tuesday bike nights in Sylvan Beach.

Joe and Lisa are extremely grateful to the community for embracing Willie’s so quickly and so enthusiastically!
