Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Braun Station West, San Antonio, TX.
I did not know JoAnn before I called her up to help my wife and I with the purchase of our new hour home. In fact, I actually called the seller's listing agent first, and never got a response. I then selected JoAnn from her reviews on Zillow. From the moment I met JoAnn, my wife and I were given the royal treatment. JoAnn proved to be extremely knowledgable, incredibly responsive, and definitely knew how to negotiate. I am an attorney by profession and negotiate for a living. I am usually the one to handle the affairs of my clients, so I found myself in the unique position of having someone advocate the best deal on my behalf. As you know, buyer's don't communicate with sellers and/or their agents directly. I was extremely impressed by the way JoAnn took charge and negotiated with the shrewdness and tact of some of the upper echelon lawyers in my profession. I can't tell you how she acts when she represents a seller, but when she represented me as the buyer, she fought like a bear to keep me from paying anymore than I had to for my house. I am happy to say that I paid well below the appraised value of the property when the deal closed thanks to JoAnn's real estate negotiation skills. When the house closed my wife and I were ecstatic except for the fact that we were no longer dealing with JoAnn on a daily basis. During the time period of our sale we were on the phone with her at least 10 to 15 times a day. We saw house after house. She responded immediately to every call. We eventually called JoAnn about a week after we closed and told her how much we missed talking to her on a daily basis.

What can I say? JoAnn is great. She not only showed us homes all over the San Antonio area (without making us feel rushed to buy), she also knew about the schools and histories of the neighborhoods (often saying "no, you don't want to live there"). She even went beyond the call of duty by assisting us with getting our money back from a deal gone sour with our previous realtor. In short, JoAnn had our back the entire time, while having patience with our sense of reluctance to get back in the game after our previous experience. She negotiated hard for us, made sure we understood every line on the contact, eventually getting us a home we love, at a price we love even more. And she did it all with a great sense of humor and warmth to me and my family. Thanks JoAnn!

JoAnn made the process of buying a house much less stressful than what I'm sure it would have been if I did it on my own! She has been doing it a while and knows all the ins and outs. She will find you what you are looking for and even if you think you found it but realize last minuet you didn't she will get right back on it and find you what you're looking for! Thanks JoAnn!

I've known JoAnn for many years and she has been exceptional in helping my entire family buy and sell homes over the past 15+ years! My personal experience includes JoAnn showing me many homes, pre-owned and new. She also introduced the idea of a new-build and walked me through every step of the way, even when she didn't have to. In one instance when my home was almost finished, I had an issue with the builder and called for her advice. She did more than give me advice. She met with me and my husband, helped us devise a plan of action, and saw us through to the end. I couldn't have asked for anyone better! I would definitely use JoAnn again and have recommended my friends to her, 3 of which have already benefited from her services.

JoAnn is a first rate example of how experience and customer focus pays off for buyers...
I was recommended JoAnn from a friend at work who has known her most of her life, and who had JoAnn's help in home purchases herself. When I became interested and capable of buying a home, I only had a short time to consider the possibility due to changing work responsibilities. JoAnn was able to listen to what I was interested in finding as a long term home for my son and I, and adapt to our changing needs vs desires as we looked at potential houses. She was able to find and show us several homes that met both, in the time that we were available; often after work and on weekends (really going above and beyond to accommodate our schedule). Her knowledge of the market helped me avoid making poor choices, and ultimately I found what I consider the perfect home, in a very short time. She helped me negotiate a great price and rate, and knew quality inspectors that helped give me piece of mind on my final choice. I absolutely love my new home, and I would never have gotten it (especially at the price I did!) if it weren't for her. If you need someone who is interested in finding what YOU need, I highly recommend you allow her to help you find your dream home.
Definitely one of the best choices I have ever made!
