We can honestly say that working with Jo-Ann was not what we expected. While our house did sell with her as our realtor, she played a minimal role in the process.<br/><br/>In this market, if you’re going to go with Jo-Ann, you might as well just list it For Sale By Owner and save yourself the commission fees. In no way did she do anything to earn her commission. We had to reach out for any feedback on showings or next steps based on the feedback we received from the service she uses for showings. I talked to her on the phone twice during the entire process, and both times she made it seem rushed and as if I was wasting her time, even though we were discussing offers on the property.<br/><br/>Here are some things you can expect to be responsible for and experience if you work with Jo-Ann:<br/><br/>- I was the one preparing the house constantly for showings – I left work at least a dozen times to turn on lights, fans, etc and make the property look nice for the showings that popped up during the day– she never tried to assist with prepping the house, or even offered for that matter.<br/><br/>- When coming up with pricing, she gave no recommendations and essentially left it up to us. While I understand that it’s our house, we hired her for her expertise to price and reposition the price, respond to offers etc. She gave zero guidance.<br/><br/>-As stated above, zero communication was ever initiated by her. Be prepared to hear nothing from her for days/weeks after showings, feedback from showings etc. All communication will be via email in one or two sentences.<br/><br/>-A for sale sign that doesn’t even say for sale. She pushes her brand hard, before even selling your house. It’s essentially her face, a phone number and a call out to her website. She cares more about her brand and pushing it than selling your home.<br/><br/>-Not one single open house. Not even a mention of arranging for an open house.<br/><br/>We would not recommend Jo-Ann for all of the reasons stated above.

We can honestly say that working with Jo-Ann was not what we expected. While our house did sell with her as our realtor, she played a minimal role in the process.

In this market, if you’re going to go with Jo-Ann, you might as well just list it For Sale By Owner and save yourself the commission fees. In no way did she do anything to earn her commission. We had to reach out for any feedback on showings or next steps based on the feedback we received from the service she uses for showings. I talked to her on the phone twice during the entire process, and both times she made it seem rushed and as if I was wasting her time, even though we were discussing offers on the property.

Here are some things you can expect to be responsible for and experience if you work with Jo-Ann:

- I was the one preparing the house constantly for showings – I left work at least a dozen times to turn on lights, fans, etc and make the property look nice for the showings that popped up during the day– she never tried to assist with prepping the house, or even offered for that matter.

- When coming up with pricing, she gave no recommendations and essentially left it up to us. While I understand that it’s our house, we hired her for her expertise to price and reposition the price, respond to offers etc. She gave zero guidance.

-As stated above, zero communication was ever initiated by her. Be prepared to hear nothing from her for days/weeks after showings, feedback from showings etc. All communication will be via email in one or two sentences.

-A for sale sign that doesn’t even say for sale. She pushes her brand hard, before even selling your house. It’s essentially her face, a phone number and a call out to her website. She cares more about her brand and pushing it than selling your home.

-Not one single open house. Not even a mention of arranging for an open house.

We would not recommend Jo-Ann for all of the reasons stated above.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Twinsburg, OH.

Whether you're buying or selling a home in Twinsburg, you will want Jo Ann sitting on your side of the table. She has the contacts to make sales, and she knows how to negotiate the best deal. Most importantly, when she says she will do something, she will. She rocks!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Reminderville, OH.

Jo-Ann really delivered ! She sold our home fast and made sure we had a seemless transition to our new home. We moved right in to our new home without a hitch. All banking transactions took place on the same day. Thx Jo-Ann !

Bought a Single Family home in 2003 for approximately $350K in Twinsburg, OH.

We weren't the ideal clients. Finicky. Wishy-washy. Always on the fence. But in 2003 Jo-ann guided us into a home we're still thrilled with today! We never felt pressured or judged as to our P.I.T.A. (pain in the @..) index, which was high! Thanks Jo-ann.

Sold a home in 2012 in Reminderville, OH 44087.

We new that we wanted to stay within our current city of Twinsburg and needed a realtor with market knowledge. We chose Jo-Ann for her reputation and expertise in the market to sell our home and find our new home. We appreciated the hard work and dedication she took to make sure that we found the house we were looking for!

Bought a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $150K in Solon, OH.

Jo-Ann was a pleasure to work. She provided great information, personally and on line, and made herself readily available to show any listings I was interested in. Her contacts in the field were a benefit in helping me to close the deal.

Jo-Ann was terrific to work with in the selling of our condo as well as the buying of our new home. She was always accommodating and provided expertise and answers to all our questions. Jo-Ann is a true professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy and/or sell real estate.

Sold a Townhouse home in 2010 in Twinsburg, OH.

Jo-Ann's knowledge of the local real estate market was extremely beneficial in our pursuit to sell our current resident and purchase a new home. Jo-Ann was able to come in, wonderfully stage our home, thoroughly discuss the appropriate pricing point to list, and completely build a comprehensive marketing package for the selling process. As a result, we were able to complete the selling process without any surprises or unexpected results.On the buy side, Jo-Ann was able to find a home that matched our wish list and adeptly lead us through the buying process. The end result was the ideal home at a an ideal price point.

I would strongly recommend Jo-Ann McFearin as either a buy side or sell side agent..

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Twinsburg, OH.

I met Jo-Ann when I was a single mom looking for a new house. Jo-Ann showed me many houses until I found the perfect home. A few years later, I met my now husband and Jo-Ann helped find a new house that was right for our new family. She also helped us sell his condo and then my home. She helped give me advice on getting my home ready to sell and we were under contract in 4 days! Jo-Ann was invaluable in our home search and sale and I would recommend her whole-heatedly.
