Joe Polenek, P.Eng., MBA

Experience & Background

I am a graduate of University of Waterloo's Civil Engineering program and have a Master of Business Administration degree from York University. After completing my education, I earned my Professional Engineering designation in the real world of automotive manufacturing, first as a Production Supervisor and then as a Quality Engineer. Many years of this fast-paced and demanding environment instilled in me a mindset of results, attention to detail, and the client's best interests above all. This was an excellent preparation for success in the world of real estate sales in Guelph.

My Approach

I enjoy the challenges of residential real estate. I understand the personal, emotional and financial aspects of relocating or investing. My clients value me for my technical know-how and excellent customer service throughout the transaction process.


Local Knowledge

  • Living in various neighbourhoods in Guelph over the past 15 years has given me a unique and personal perspective on what each area has to offer. My own experience in real estate ownership ranges from century homes in downtown Guelph, to newer homes in the south end, new build and resale, freehold and condominium, as well as investment properties.

Hands-On Approach

  • In owning the various types of properties, I have done extensive hands-on renovation and re-modelling work that has touched on virtually every trade that's related to a home. This first-hand experience gives me the knowledge to properly advise my clients on the technical aspects of real property.

Perfect Partnership

  • Teamed with my wife, Sophia Polenek, we have built a loyal clientele who appreciate our responsive, patient and thorough approach to helping them find the perfect home, purchase a profitable investment property, or sell their current home at the best price possible. ¬†Our success comes from merging our unique skill sets that are backed by our combined 20+ years of experience in the industry.


Highly focused, yet calm and collected, I strive to make the
real estate process efficient and enjoyable for every client I represent.

My clients say

Steven S

We did a bit of research to choose realtors that fit our style and needs and were very glad we chose Joe and Sophia Polenek. They treated us very well during the housing market craziness in spring 2017. We had very specific needs and started our search from Winnipeg before we moved here. They spent a lot of time talking to us, asking questions and getting a clear picture of what we needed. They took the time to show us homes when we visited Guelph even before we were ready to buy. Then when we were ready they gave us great advice and we managed to buy the first house we put an offer on.

Biana S

Sophia and Joe made selling our family home a straightforward and exciting process. They were total pros when it came to staging and marketing, and even collaborated with peers to determine the ultimate listing price. They're connected in the community, great educators/ communicators, and have the vision to get things done. We would highly recommend them and TrilliumWest to anyone. Thanks for working so hard for us, Sophia, Joe, Garret, Al and the whole team at TW!

Emma G.

Sophia and Joe are true professionals and top of their game. We loved working with them to purchase our home. They are both very knowledgeable about the real estate market and home ownership. Sophia had a valuable approach for helping us get a feel for the market so that we could make informed decisions. Thanks Sophia and Joe for making our home buying experience so positive. We absolutely love our new home!
