Why Joan?

"Joan brings with her a keen eye for the details of a transaction and seemingly boundless determination and energy, which is why her clients benefit from her unique brand of real estate service."


My sister and I needed to sell our Dad's home in Goose Lake to help take care of him in the nursing home.  This was a very stressful time for us because Dad was not doing well and we were very emotional.  Joan was able to help us as navigate this stressful time and treated us with kindness and understanding.  Neither one of us had been involved in a real estate transaction for a long time so Joan was very helpful in holding our hands through the entire transaction.    Joan's experience made all the difference for us.  Call Joan if you need any real estate advice.  She knows what needs to be done.

I tried to sell my rental house the year before with no luck. Joan helped find me an excellent tenant who would be moving out of state in spring 2019.  We listed the home in the last month of the lease and it sold in one week! It worked out perfectly that the tenant moved out and 1 week later we closed on the sale. The timing was perfect! Joan knew exactly what list price to sell at and how to handle the tenants so they were comfortable with showings. She handled everything for me and the closing went very smoothly.

We have to tell everyone what an awesome job Joan did for us.  We were looking for a specific property and the minute it hit the market she called us.  We were the first people to see it and bought it that day! Then we listed our home with her and it was sold within 1 week!  She helped us maneuver through the financial issues when selling and buying at the same time.  Joan was like a family member helping us every step of the way.   Her expertise excels the experience she has.  We highly recommend Joan as the realtor to call.

Joan has a lot of patience!  We knew we eventually wanted to move to Morris from a nearby town and we were looking for just the "right" home.  I think once or twice a year for 4-5 years Joan would call us with a possible home, but we just couldn't find the "right" one.  She called us one day and said to come to town right now and see the perfect home that was not even on the market yet!!!!  So we jumped in our car and 24 hours later we had our new "right" home. It was located in town AND had waterfront, just perfect for fishing and boating with the grandkids.  There isn't anyone else in the real estate community that has more knowledge or works harder than Joan does.  She makes her client's needs her top priority.

Joan sold our home for us in 2017. We were anxious to downsize and move to a new area. Her professionalism is unquestioned we truly felt that when we agreed for her to sell our home that we would be taken care of, with the utmost care. She emphasized that she was our agent and would keep our concerns as her number one priority. The market was in flux when we decided to move so it was not an ideal time but we never felt that our home would not sell. Joan pulled out all the stops and marketed our home in a broader range and kept vigilant. Her resources and experiences are wide and her commitment to the successful sale of our home was very important to us. We would not hesitate to recommend Joan to others.

Joan's commitment in meeting her client's goals has created a standard of excellence in customer service. When it was time to sell our home we knew we would call Joan. We would not trust listing our home with anyone else. Her knowledge of the local housing market was very helpful in setting an appropriate selling price. We had a firm buyer in 3 days in a tough market. Couldn't ask for anything more! Selling your home can be a daunting process but with Joan it just seemed easy.

Fred and I were planning on moving to Morris and started to look at duplexes.  We mentioned we would love to live on the golf course.  Joan told us about a ranch that was on the market on the golf course just that morning and let's go see it.  We did and instantly fell in love with it.  In a span or 4 days we bought the golf course home, Joan listed AND sold our duplex in Coal City and sent a referral to an Arizona realtor who sold our winter home that weekend.  Whew! Our heads were spinning! Joan kept us informed through each step of the process to get our golf course dream house and we love it.  Working with Joan is more than working with a professional Realtor - it's akin to working with a life-long friend.  We highly recommend her.
