Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Why should you do business with me? I deliver more value for my clients. Simple to say, but truly I want to do the best I can for my clients because I love selling real estate. 

I am based in the historic community of Rancho Santa Fe, CA, and work in the Central and North areas of the City of San Diego as well as North San Diego County. I would love to help you buy a home in San Diego and Rancho Santa Fe or to sell the San Diego or Rancho Santa Fe home you currently own. I'll show you some marketing strategies I have discovered to save you time and money. And if you are interested in investing in San Diego-area rental homes and Rancho Santa Fe properties, let me know. I've helped investors with their finanical goals. 

Prior to becoming a Realtor in 1996, I spent more than 25 years in communications, working as a news writer for newspapers and magazines, including a 10-year stint at the New York Times sports department. 
Since moving to San Diego from Westport, CT, with my husband, a consultant in the golf industry, I have used my communications and marketing skills to help my clients achieve their goals. My communications background as well as my real estate training and experience combine to offer my clients strong negotiating skills and an in depth knowledge of the local real estate market.  I also am certified in short sales and foreclosures and have considerable experience in real estate valuations. Whether you are looking for coastal, ranch, architecturally-distinctive, estate and luxury homes for sale, I can help.

My passion is to do the best I can to find the best house at the best price, to find the best qualified buyer for your home, to negotiate the best terms, to solve my clients' problems, to help them reach the best decisions. I want my clients to succeed. And be so delighted with my efforts that they have no desire to work with anyone else.

Whether you are buying or selling, another important consideration is my support team. When you hire me, you also are hiring Ann Bray, my transaction coordinator; Laura Crewse, my administrator; Gina DiDonato, my receptionist; and Steve Salinas, my manager. So you can see, when you hire me, you really are hiring a full service team of professionals. 

Above all, I am about family--mine and yours. I leave no stone unturned when it comes to helping my family--and yours.   

And when I close the door to my office, I often can be found at Moonlight Beach, on the golf course, or walking the trails with my two German Shepherds, who have me well-trained. Most of all, I am
 grateful for my fabulous family and friends, and exceptional clients.

Still interested?

      Sold a home in 2011.
      Joanne Fishman recently handled a 1031 exchange for us and it was amazing how smoothly the process was handled. I chose Joanne for this real estate transaction because she has been helping me purchase and rent property for the past seven years quite successfully. She is very efficient as well as personable in her dealings. I highly recommend her for anyone seeking an expert in San Diego area real estate.  MoreLess

      Sold a home in 2011.
      Joanne has assisted my husband and I with several transactions over the years. We have found her competence, knowledge, and work ethic to be second to none. She has been extremely responsive, creative in her approach, and available.

      We’d recommend Joanne without reservation!

      Helped me rent a Single Family home in North City, San Diego, CA.
      Joanne was absolutely amazing to have working for us in finding a rental home. Our family relocated to San Diego and we were looking for a rental while trying to sell our home. Joanne was patient and professional and we are sure she didn't make much in helping us find a rental home, but Joanne treated us as if we were buying not renting. Joanne has definitely earned our business for when we are ready to purchase our next home. I would highly recommend Joanne to anyone who desires a professional, knowledgeable and personable, not pushy, agent.  MoreLess
