Joan was extremely helpful to my husband and I as we searched for, found, and bought our first home. Searching for our first home started as a very daunting process but Joan eased the whole process for us and even made it fun! She truly cared about what we wanted in a home and never made us feel rushed or tried to persuade us toward something we weren't interested in. She was patient with us and educated us throughout the home buying process while always keeping our desires for our first home at the forefront. One of the best things about Joan is that she is extremely responsive and was always approachable for any question or need we had. She worked around our busy schedules to help us see homes we were interested in at the first available opportunity. When we stumbled upon the home we quickly realized we wanted to buy, it was a Saturday and there were multiple showings on the house. We hadn't even been pre-approved for a loan yet, so it was both an exciting and nerve-racking moment to realize we had found the home we wanted to buy. Joan immediately helped us get in touch with all the right people and guided us calmly and professionally through the negotiating and home buying process (we got the house!). She also made helpful suggestions so that we obtained all the right inspections and information we needed to feel like we were making a safe, smart purchase. We felt very confident in our decisions with Joan's advice and insight on board. She went above and beyond to help us find our wonderful first home, and has even helped us with questions that have come up since becoming homeowners. Joan is an awesome resource and I would suggest her as a top choice for a real estate agent!
