"We absolutely LOVE our home. We couldn't be happier. I can't thank you enough. You are the best! You became a big part of our little family for a long time there! Thank you so much for everything!"
"Joanie is more than a realtor, and the sale or purchase of a home is more than just a transaction to her. Our excitement and desire to be in Walla Walla was not ours alone, Joanie shared that with us. Joanie is very well established and connected in the area. Each of the people she referred were great people to work with, which is a great reflection on how Joanie is and the people she knows. We had complete trust in Joanie's recommendations. She was always available and in constant contact with us with updates, and as issues came up and helping to connect us to people. Joanie has become one of our first "friends" in Walla Walla and is an affirmation as to why we chose to live here!"
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work with getting us into our first home! I finally had a chance to sit down at my desk, and thank you! I just wanted to really let you know, that you made a very stressful thing much easier on us, and we really appreciate all the hard work you did. I would have been totally lost if not for your guidance! I know I will highly recommended you if anyone asks me in the future, you can be sure that I will give them your name. Rest assured that if we ever intend to sell the house, we will hunt you down and make you be the listing agent (though I don't see us selling it in the foreseeable future)."
Joanie was recommended to us by a friend and she exceeded our expectations. We found her to be knowledgeable and thorough. She showed us the types of houses we had requested. She was patient, friendly, and we never felt rushed or pushed in any way. She seemed content to show us as many houses as we wanted, for as long as it took for us to find something we really liked. Once we put an offer, the loan type we ended up with made the loan process itself excruciating (203K), but Joanie was amazing through the entire process. The house needed a lot of work, Joanie met us at the house daily or several times a day to get bids on on the many parts of the house that needed repairs. She always seemed happy to do whatever was needed in order to make the house work for us. There was a crazy amount of paperwork needed to for the loan, and Joanie was on top of everything. She scheduled everything and closely with the bank to everything work. Near the end of the loan process, we were very frustrated with our bank and mentioned it to Joanie. She talked with our bank and worked with them to try to make things better for us. She was also very willing to back us out of the process at any time, even at the end when she'd been working on it for us for 3 months! I can't say enough good things about Joanie. She is amazing and I am highly recommending her to anyone I talk to.
Thanks so much once again!
"We met Joanie when she stopped to help my husband, who had run out of gas on the highway. When it was time to start looking at homes, we knew we wanted Joanie, and her kindness and good character, to represent us. Who better to go through this journey with than someone who cares about people and has a good heart! We weren't disappointed. Joanie quickly picked up on what we liked, wanted, and needed for our family and our budget. She was sweet to our kids and would even bring them candy to showings. She worked hard for us through many offers, showings, and emotions. Joanie was available from early in the morning to late at night when needed. She is also a phenomenal wealth of knowledge when it comes to needing help or info on anything — electrician, plumber, etc. We are so grateful for everything she did for us to help us get the right home for our family!"

"I was a banker for 40 years. During that time I worked with many realtors both for residential and commercial sales. Among all of those realtors, you have to be ranked at the top. All the way through our purchase through you, you were always ahead of the game. Every time we called with a question, you had already handled whatever we ask. That made our purchase so easy. You had really qualified people ready to handle such things as house inspection. (That was a 42-page report).
Since we closed on our house we have give your name to people looking for real estate. If they use your talents, we will look like heroes for suggesting you!"
