Joanna sold our house by giving us great guidance on staging and landscaping decisions. Of equal importance, she kept us well-informed of the local market, pricing, and all activity. Joanna is determined to satisfy her clients, and to exceed their expectations. We are recommending Joanna to all members of our community because we know it will be good for them and a great reflection on us!

We were trying to sell our suburban family home in Wayland in the middle of the Winter (certainly not the optimal time to sell a house in this market). We found Joanna to be extremely resourceful and effective in all aspects of the process from market issues, legal issues, and negotiating skills. She is knowledgeable, decisive and a pleasure to work with. Joanna also managed the purchase of our current home during the same time frame. She is a seasoned and highly professional expert, and had a major impact on our ability to very successfully complete the two transactions on a tight timetable

Joanna was wonderful to work with, very professional and so helpful in all aspects of the sale of my home. There were some issues during the negotiations and she was great in helping me to make decisions on how to handle what the buyer was asking for.
