Ratings & Reviews

We relocated from VT earlier this year and established our relationship with Joanne via a response to an inquiry through Zillow. Her prompt response was our first indicator to her professionalism. In exploring the options primarily in Cape Coral we were considering both duplexes and single family homes. As we were traveling between Fl, GA and VT it was challenging to arrange to see all of the properties that we were interested in on a timely basis. On a number of occasions Joanne offered to and followed up with a video of the properties we could not see immediately which in my opinion was above and beyond our previous experiences in working with agents. It was most helpful in adding or eliminating properties to be seen personally. Joanne was most accommodating in scheduling showings when we were available and even rearranged her schedule for us an a few occasions as we looked at quite a few properties over a period of time. As we expanded our search area to the Punta Gorda area she was agreeable to traveling there as well. When we found the home that was perfect for us she assisted greatly in expediting the process. We were back in VT when the inspection was done and she attended that on our behalf which we greatly appreciated. As it turned out we went from offer on 3/16/15 to closing on 4/3/15 with no issues whatsoever. Our move from VT to FL was smooth sailing and Joanne was an integral part of it. We found Joanne to be most personable and friendly and always enjoyed our time with her. She showed genuine concern for the challenges we were facing at the time. Her respect for us and her other clients was apparent and refreshing as we were able to observe her in action while with her.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $150K in Fort Myers, FL.

I highly recommend Joanne Olson, who helped me buy my first vacation rental condo. I never felt pressured to buy and she was highly responsive every step of the way. A tireless professional, she knows the FL market inside and out.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $125K in Port Charlotte, FL.

We had been working with another realtor for over a year. We had gotten nowhere and we were honestly about ready to put the house hunting on hold. We decided to give it one more try working with Joanne and we are so glad we did! She found us the perfect home! She listened to our needs and worked with us to find something in our budget. This was our first time purchasing a home and had no idea what to expect. She walked us through the whole process and was always available for any questions we had. I would highly recommend this very professional, caring realtor to anyone.

Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure finding you your first home. I know you had been working with someone else and became frustrated almost to the point of not wanting to look anymore. I try to take into account everyone's individual situation as everyone's is different. I know the school district was important to you as well as neighborhood safety with young children. We have stayed in touch since your purchase and from the sounds of it your children are thriving in their new home and new school system. It was truly a blessing to work with you and your family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Cape Coral, FL.

I live in Michigan and have been looking for a home in Cape Coral for the last couple of years. I'm still three years away from retirement, and wasn't quite sure I was ready to go through with purchase knowing that I wouldn't be able to spend much time there. A great thing happened though, we found a house we really wanted. With us in Michigan I completely depended on Joanne to do all the leg work, exploring, investigating, even taking a video for me. Anything and everything I needed Joanne was there, if I texted her, get immediate response. Emails were answered immediately phone calls returned quickly. I was blessed to have met and got to know Joanne Olson and would recommend her to anybody who's looking for a house and really needs a great agent to help them I won't get into some of the issues that I had, nothing to do with Joanne but issues just the same. When Joanne had to use a little muscle to get things done, things got done. If you're serious to buy a house and looking in Southwest Florida, all I can tell you is to look up Joanne Olson. I have already thanked Joanne, but I will thank her again, in this public forum. Thank you, thank you, thank you Joanne and may God bless you and family.

Vinny, It was a pleasure getting to meet you and the family. You fell in love with your home and there was nothing that was going to stop me until you and your family had exactly what you were looking for right down to the inspections, insurance, and lender to make it happen. You have become a friend over the last few months and I will cherish your friendship and your wife's. You have a beautiful pool home in a great neighborhood in cape coral. I know you will have many years of happiness together in your new chapter in SW Florida. I am here should you ever need me.

Buying your first home is always a big accomplishment one of which you should be proud of. It was my pleasure helping you find exactly what you were looking for. I know the neighborhood and proximity to family was important to you and I always tried to keep things within your budget. It's nice to see you both settled in to your new home which bye the way was a fantastic price for a pool home in such an amazing area! I hope you and your husband have many years of happiness together in your new home.

Showed home in 2013 in Gateway, Fort Myers, FL 33913.

I contacted Joanne from a listing that was hers.She replied immediately and we discussed what types of property I was interested in.Joanne quickly set up some showings for me and took me to see the houses. While we were out she explained other types of properties for investments and quickly scheduled those. If I had any questions that she could not answer she contacted the listing broker and got back to me that day.

I would recommend Joanne to anyone with hesitation.
