Joelle is not your typical realtor. Joelle is the best realtor! Joelle takes the time to understand exactly what you are looking. She spends time talking thru the entire process. We spent about an hour on a video call where she explained the buying process and even strategies we could use when it came down to making an offer. We were first time homebuyers with very little knowledge, so this was super helpful. We were looking in both MA and NH and she explained and educated us on the differences of buying in both states. We were specifically looking for a house with an in law for my elderly parents. The first open house we went to, she gave us her honest perspective on the in law if she was buying for her parents. (too many stairs for elderly parents, etc) When any other realtor might’ve pushed us to make an offer. The second open house she actually found. I wasn’t super keen on the pictures but it was exactly what we were looking for. She helped us talk strategy to ensure our offer would be accepted and it was! We would not have ended up in our dream home if it wasn’t for her! Separately, Joelle’s slogan of #clientsnowfriends is accurate! During the entire process I felt Joelle was my friend and therapist! I could rely on her to talk thru anything and everything. She had suggestions and recommendations throughout the entire process. She is super responsive, professional, friendly and timely. Everyone needs a Joelle when buying or selling their home! - Megan and Scott

"In this ultra-competitive market, choosing the right realtor is key. We are so happy we made the right decision by working with Joelle. We just closed on our first home purchase, and we could never have done it without her. Joelle went above and beyond many times throughout our home search. She's super responsive, knowledgeable, hardworking, and detail-oriented, and she knows what it takes to win. She helped us analyze comps for our offers, explained all our options and different strategies, and basically taught us everything we needed to know. She has a great network as well--contractors, attorneys, lenders, everything you need, which really simplified things for us. We felt like we could always trust her recommendations and advice. We would highly recommend her to anyone." - Katy Eryilmaz

"We have now worked with Joelle three times in less than 3 years, and she has been amazing each time! We have consistently felt that we have benefited from her knowledge and experience of the local market, and could not have asked for anything else from her. This time around, we were able to sell our home quickly and for more than we thought was possible, all while actively searching for our dream home. Thanks to Joelle, we sold a home and bought our new home successfully just weeks apart. Joelle genuinely cares, and it is evident each time we have worked with her!"- Michael Sangeorzan

"Joelle was an incredible agent in the sale of our first home. She was knowledgeable, responsive and patient with us, even when we ran into (more than one!) challenging issue. Joelle went above and beyond to support us and leverage her network to remove obstacles and make the deal possible for us. We never questioned whether she was doing everything in her power to support us - she consistently followed up, gave us suggestions and recommendations, and communicated quickly and effectively with everyone involved. Joelle's commitment to our home sale made us feel like we were her most important client at all times. The care, time and perseverance to getting the deal done was more than we could have possibly asked for. I would recommend Joelle and her team to anyone looking for the best possible agent to support the sale or purchase of a home." - Amy Smith

"The experience that my husband and I had with Joelle could not have been better. Joelle had reached out to me through a facebook page where I posted stating we were going to begin house hunting in Melrose, MA as a first time home buyer. From our first interaction, Joelle was trying to help, with no strings attached. I felt I could trust her right from the beginning, and from our first zoom meeting, my husband and I felt we'd made a great choice. Joelle was pleasant and fun to tour homes with, was very knowledgeable about the area we were house hunting in, and is very knowledgeable about homes- things like circuit breakers, retaining walls, and many things my husband and I were not well informed about as first time home buyers. She would often point out negatives in homes that we never would've recognized being new to the process. She was responsive day and night, and no matter how ridiculous the question, she was patient with us and supported us through a stressful process. Joelle has a lot of strategies that she recommends her clients to use when making an offer on a house, and with following everything she recommended, our offer was accepted on the first house we offered on. The ONE snafu we ran into in the whole process was with our mortgage company that we'd found on our own (instead of using one Joelle recommended). If I could advise anyone interested in buying a home in Joelle's area of expertise, use her recommended staff to assist with the process. Joelle is truly an expert in her field, a trustworthy and kind person, and I could not recommend her more highly. If you trust and do as she advises, you'll get the home of your dreams." - Abigail Zubrycky

"Joelle was an absolute pleasure to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell their house in the greater Boston area! She had wonderful insight into the local market and was very quick and responsive to our (many!) questions. I believe her advice on staging our house is why we were able to sell it in one weekend and at a great price. The selling process can be challenging but Joelle’s guidance made it so much easier and she truly went above and beyond for us. You will be in good hands if you choose to work with Joelle!" - Shea C

About Joelle

A drawing of a man with a blue ribbon on his head.

I believe that buying and selling a home is much more than a transaction. Part-therapist, part-analyst and expert communicator, I understand that real estate is all about relationships and mine endure long after closing.  #clientsnowfriends is my motto, evident in my glowing reviews and repeat business rate.

A GREEN and Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR) and experienced flipper, I help clients see past the wallpaper and pink carpet. Along with my professional contractor husband Jeremy, principal of East Hill Builders, we help buyers envision the future and help sellers maximize ROI without paying out of pocket through Compass Concierge. From opening up walls to buying the house with the ugly kitchen, I ensure my clients make the best investment.

In today’s competitive market, I am highly responsive when minutes matter. Always available, I help my clients from first call to close and leverage a deep network of agents, attorneys, lenders to make the process seamless and stress-free. I masterfully harness COMPASS technology to help buyers and sellers win—from constantly analyzing data and crafting strategies to make offers stronger to innovative social media that ensures listings are highly visible.

I also leave no stone unturned when searching for a home for first-time buyers or homeowners needing a change—often uncovering off-market and hidden opportunities. I live, work and play in the area and understands the unique charm of each town and the best places and spaces for schools, food and fun—from north of Boston through southern New Hampshire.

In my "past life" I worked as a professional event planner in Biotech and I ran my own business as a wedding planner. When not helping clients, I enjoy skiing and snowboarding with my two children in Vermont, and spending time with my beagle Louie.

Are you ready for a fresh approach to Real Estate? I would love to help!
