TESTIMONIALS

“Joan was terrific. We had lived in the house a long time (28 years) so deciding to sell and “downsize” was a big, and traumatic decision for us. She marketed the property well, worked hard, was responsive – day or night, and provided us with the advice and counsel we needed. Above all, she was a great sounding board, was as in love with our house as we were, and presented it well. We would recommend Joan wholeheartedly!”

Her responsiveness has been exceptional without regard to the price of the home. She showed the same diligence to a search for a expensive home as she did for my daughters apt. Excellent local knowledge not simply of the homes in the market but the buyers as well. Joan main attribute was not wasting my time.

She stopped in to introduce herself, see our renovation project, and surprisingly to see if she could offer any advice or help.

Being a real estate investor that had a property for sale in a declining home sales market, I needed some expertise and direction on how to market my property.

Joan was also very helpful with finding local resources to complete my project. I will definitely work with Joan in the future!" - Peter
