Hi! I'm Joe Fortuna

Since 1998, I have been deeply immersed in the world of mortgage loan origination and real estate. It’s been a remarkable journey, serving over 1000 clients before stepping into the realm of teaching.

My background isn’t just limited to finance and real estate. I’ve always had a passion for sports and coaching, which seamlessly blended into my career. This unique combination of interests has led me to a fulfilling path where I get to teach, mentor, and work hands-on with fellow real estate and mortgage professionals. I’m proud to say that I own and maintain a real estate brokerage, as well as a mortgage origination branch (NMLS#161819).

My journey into teaching began in 2010 when I started teaching SAFE ACT courses. Since then, I’ve nurtured Fortuna Academy into a reliable and unique educational resource. It’s not just about accredited and elective real estate and mortgage education; it’s also about investment strategies, financial loss mitigation courses, and professional sales training. I love what I do, and I’m excited to share my knowledge and experience with others in this ever-evolving industry.


Joseph Fortuna brings a wealth of experience to the table, with a career spanning over two decades in real estate and finance. As the founder of Fortuna Realtors and a co-founder of Realnvest, he has successfully closed over 3000 transactions, demonstrating his unparalleled expertise and commitment to excellence. Joseph’s journey also extends into education as the lead instructor and founding partner of Fortuna Academy, where he has been instrumental in developing comprehensive courses in real estate, mortgage education, and professional sales training since 2010. His background as a mortgage loan originator, real estate broker, and educator, combined with his personal approach to leadership and mentoring, makes him a distinguished figure in both the real estate and educational fields.
