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  JoAnn was absolutely fantastic to work with! She was able to walk us through buying land and selling our beautiful home at the same time. During this stressful time, she kept us on track and helped us navigate the markets with her vast knowledge. My husband and I highly recommend her!

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  JoAnn was phenomenal to work with both in the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home. She's knowledgeable of the market and what needs to be done to get the most value for your home.

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  We used JoAnn in the sale of my condo and purchase of our new home. This is the second time we used JoAnn, and as always she was incredibly knowledgable helping us in every way possible along the way. We can’t thank JoAnn enough for helping us purchase our dream home and we can’t wait to continue...

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  Joann is great! She has been our agent for a few years and no matter what the project is from buying to selling she is so informative and helpful throughout the whole thing. It can be a crazy stressful time but Joann makes it seem like it’s a breeze and such an enjoyable experience. If you don’t...

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  this the second time I've done this.
    JoAnn Echtler is as good as her motto:"Always do more than is expected of you." So many time during the period of waiting for a sale I only begun to think of a thing when I learn she has already done it. She is always positive and cheerful making slough to the...

  • Zillow 5 Star Review  Where do I begin to convey just how great of an agent that JoAnn truly is. 6 years ago we bought our first home with JoAnn’ help. After two kids it was time to list as we were building a new home. It was a no-brained to call JoAnn as she kept us on her mailing list for the last 6 years. At our...
