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  I am so happy to endorse JoAnn Echtler as a wonderful realtor. JoAnn helped my buy my home in Seven Fields and she is so knowledgeable about the area and the process and provided me with such great guidance. She is truly a realtor who exemplifies the best in the business!

  • 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.

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  It’s always a pleasure working with Joanne and her team. This was the second time we’ve had the privilege of working with her both buying and selling. We wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  First time buying a home and Joann was awesome to have by my side. She was willing to "hold my hand" throughout the whole process. She was very knowledgeable and easy to work with! Very grateful for her.

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnne is like family! She helped us as first time home buyers 5 years ago and again helped us find and buy our second home. She took her time, was patient with us finding homes to look at, and was available every time we needed. We bought and sold, all within a month of each other. I would not have wanted to do it with anyone else. Nor would I have trusted the process without her! My husband and I highly recommend JoAnne, and will use her again should we need to in the future!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  Working with JoAnn was a dream! We were looking to purchase our first home and she made what could have been a stressful process, fun and easy. She’s very knowledgeable about the market and does an excellent job walking you through each step. I would recommend working with JoAnn to anyone and will continue to work with her for years to come!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnn has helped us sell not only our house but two different lots. She is always available to answer every question and bends over backwards to have your house presented in the best light. She is inventive and has amazing perseverance. We have worked with JoAnn for many years and she only gets better. She is a shining star in the real estate business and we recommend her very highly.

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  You expect your realtor to take care of the entire home buying/selling process and help make your move smooth and painless. What you don't expect is to run into someone like JoAnn Echtler. She is a phenomenal realtor who became my advocate and friend. Without her ceaseless help and advice, I would still be looking for my ideal home. When I say she goes above and beyond - she does - even to the point of foaming cracks! If you need a realtor, I can't recommend JoAnn enough. You will not be disappointed!!!
