Let me help get you there.

Specializing in staging and marketing homes, and helping buyers find their own piece of heaven here on earth.

Since beginning my real estate career, I have thoughtfully and passionately helped hundreds of families, couples, and individuals reach their goals of buying, selling, or both! As a licensed Realtor for over 20 years, and a Creative and Marketing professional for over 30 years, I can not only envision a home’s potential, but help guide Buyers and Sellers throughout the sometimes complicated process with patience, kindness, expertise, and a bit of humor for good measure.

Production numbers are powerful, but the bonds created with my clients, now friends, are unbreakable. Over 70% of my business is repeat and referred clients, and in order to earn and maintain that trust, my laser focus is to provide the best service possible, share honest advice, as well as timely communication and support throughout the process. I have been blessed to gain an extensive knowledge of acreage properties, raw land, farms, and Oil and Gas Rights issues along the way.

More than an agent and community advocate

In my free time, I enjoy spending time on my farmette, which includes a menagerie of fainting goats and laying hens, gardening, sampling Cabernet with friends, and writing articles for the blog. For more on the antics at Bacon Acres, click here!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnns experience precedes her. But beyond that is her easy going personality and her determination to help in anything that needs to be done and will take the time to make sure you are comfortable with any decisions no matter how hard or difficult they may be. She’s a rare find!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnn was incredible to work with. We relocated to the Cranberry Twp, PA area for work and relied heavily on JoAnn for her expertise of the greater Pittsburgh Area. With her help, we were able to secure a home on our first trip to the area. Her communication and thoroughness was top notch! I would highly recommend anyone to work with JoAnn and her team!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  We found JoAnn via her glowing Zillow reviews, and we are so thankful to have had her as our Realtor! She was very patient and knowledgeable in answering all of our questions as first time homebuyers, and her friendly upbeat attitude made the process much easier. In spite of the tough market, she helped us purchase a home that checked all of our boxes for a very reasonable price. Her communication is excellent - she's honest, clear, and quick to respond. She also has a great assistant Kelsey who kept us organized and informed, and a top-notch network of recommended professionals for everything we needed from a home inspection to financing options. We definitely recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a property!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  If you are looking for a realtor who is extremely knowledgeable but also still cares about you and your family, that is JoAnn! We just bought our first house and she made me feel like we were her top priority even though I know she had many others at the time. She made the whole home buying process stress free, which I hear is not the usual! I cannot recommend and thank her enough!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnn Is the most AMAZING realtor I have ever met. When I tell friends and family how much she did for us they can’t believe it . She makes herself available any time day or night. She sold our home quickly for above what we expected. She is also a great person who we now consider our friend. Anyone looking to buy or sell would be wise to consult with her. Regina & Dan Telech

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  We were extremely pleased with the service that JoAnn and her team provided in the preparation, showing, and ultimate sale of our home. When we met, well in advance of listing the home, JOAnn provided keen insights into what most buyers today are looking for in a new home. She provided recommendations on what we needed to do to prep our home to maximize the value of the home and also the number of potential buyers who would be interested in our home. We implemented her recommendations and it really paid off. In a matter of only 3 days we had nearly 3 dozen parties tour the home. We received multiple offers, above ask, and signed a contract on the 4th day. The leadup to the closing was easy. There were multiple touchpoints keeping us appraised of the timelines and actions we needed to complete. We recommend JoAnn without recommendation to handle your home sale! Steve & Amy

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  Being introduced to Joann from a mutual friend was the best thing that has ever happened in our family's lives. We knew when we wanted to buy and sell she was the one to call. She was up front and honest with us from day one. She told us what needed to be done to sell our house for what we hoped for and she was also there everytime we wanted to see something. There was no question left unanswered and she put up with our crazy family of 5 schedules and requests. We sold our home over list price and found our next new adventure and we couldn't be happier. She is not only our realtor for life but has become family. If you are unsure on who to choose when it comes to buying and selling give Joann a call first. Her and her assistant Kelsey made the pain of the real estate market a breeze.
