Meet Our Support Staff
This is the second time I have been employed by Joanne. The first time, over twenty years ago, was just for a few hours per month, helping mail letters. Fast forward to 2019, I heard about a part-time job opportunity that fit my schedule. I applied, not realizing it was working for Joanne, and got the job!
While the Real Estate industry was new to me in the beginning, miscellaneous office tasks and taking on the creative side of marketing and social media promotion was right in line with what I had been doing for years on my own! I’m thrilled to be part of the Team in assisting in the office and helping our Agents stay on top of their game and connected with their clients!
When not in the office, I am busy with family and friends, making art with paint or camera or words, and longing for the next trip to the beach!
We have a trusted name with proven results,
and we just may hold the key to your new home!
It would be our honor to serve you!
