Joanne has 27 years plus of combined experience in real estate. The first nine were in the legal sector and the second 18 have been celebrated by selling real estate.
Joanne knows the Western New York real estate market like the back of her hand. What sets her apart is her refined knowledge and her high level of personalized service.
Joanne's listings ALWAYS sell. Nothing expires. Why? She works with her clients as a team. Teamwork will set your price correctly, get your home ready for the market and professionally photographed. The goal is to get your home sold for the highest price possible in the shortest period of time. How? By fixing everything broken, having your home impeccably clean and well staged. Spending the least amount of money for the highest return. How does that sound?
Her specialty is in "Downsizing" - Selling the single-family home and finding the next home that requires less maintenance. This could be either a ranch-style home or a "condo" tax status home like a patio home, attached condo or any other maintenance-free lifestyle structure or environment.
Joanne was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and was raised in Wildwood, New Jersey, Monticello, New York and Easton, Pennsylvania. She was a photographer at the Concord Hotel, in Monticello, NY - which allowed her to learn a great deal about people skills.
She has one daughter who is a mental health counselor for substance abuse in Rochester and is the proud grandmother of a Corgi named Rory. She is also very active in volunteering her time in four realtor-related organizations who organize fund-raising events for local charities. Currently, she is the Chairperson for a committee in the Womens' Council of Realtors Fashion Show- raising funds for Horizons.
