A recent client's recommendation...

My brother and I found ourselves with the sudden and unexpected passing of our Mother and the barrage of steps that go along with settling an estate. We called the friendly face I had seem on many for-sale signs in Mission Bay Mobile Home Park, where my mother was living. We thought this realtor must know what she is doing, right? Let me say…. we were not disappointed!  She met with us within a few hours on that first day and stayed by our side for the entire time it took to sell the home. She told us exactly what we needed to do, the order in which to do it and gave us great references to get the work done. She is a plethora of knowledge about senior living, the market and what it takes to get the sale. Though we fought her a few steps of the way…. she was always right and in the end, we got more than we originally wanted and couldn’t be happier with the sale, bitter sweet as it was. If you are looking for someone to help you sell even the most challenging of homes, Joanne is your choice! She is kind, compassionate, spunky, well known and knowledgeable as hell about what it takes to get the job done. She and her team, Richard, Dawn and Cree immediately make you feel like family. One that I’m not quite ready to give up yet, whether they like it or not!

Let's just start by saying Joanne is hands down the best realtor ever. With me having no experience in selling a home before, Joanne and her expertise in selling homes made it a breeze!! She was able to take stunning pictures of the home inside & out. She was able to use our furniture to stage the home for the photos, with Joanne being in this industry for quite some time she knows the right companies  to work with that get all of your inspections done fast and they won't break your wallet, she walked us through every step and really took all of the stress away from us.

We had our home on the market for less than 3 months and we were able to sell for market value!! We were really worried and stressed about not being able to sell our home due to the current COVID-19 pandemic that is going on but with Joanne's help we pushed through that fear and she was still able to make sure our home sold and for the full asking price as well.

Joanne is ready to tackle and help you overcome any fears you may have with buying or selling your home. And I will definitely be using her in the future if we ever need to buy another home!!

Thank you Joanne for all of your help!!
