Joujou was born in New Delhi and educated at Tara Hall, a Catholic boarding school in Simla, India's summer capital. After completing her undergraduate degree in Economics from New Delhi University, she was then introduced to her future husband, Piri Chawla, in the traditional "match-making" custom. She became engaged to him within 14 hours. In 1980, she joined her husband in the United States, and after living in New York and Texas for a few years, they moved to California in 1985 and settled in Blackhawk.
She started selling real estate in Dallas, Texas, in 1982 and started working for Blackhawk Properties/Blackhawk Realty in 1985, where her dedication and hard work set the tone for what would set her apart from all other agents. She practiced real estate with Blackhawk Properties/Blackhawk Realty from 1985 to 1991. In 1991 she obtained her brokerage license and became a co-owner of the company, renamed Blackhawk Real Estate Company. As a co-owner, her company began to do sales volume, typically done by companies ten times their size in the Bay Area of San Francisco. In this capacity, she also functioned as the CFO of the organization for nearly ten years. In 2008, her company merged with J. Rockcliff to become one of the most influential companies in the Bay Area's real estate market.
In August 2018, Joujou launched the Blackhawk Office of Compass. This East Coast juggernaut real estate company excels in being on the cutting edge of technologies that support and facilitate real estate sales. Joujou's knowledge of the real estate market is extensive. Being in the industry since 1982, she's known as an industry leader, having done over $1.6 billion + in sales volume and over 1,350+ homes sold 425+ in Blackhawk since inception. Publicly she is known as the "Go-To" person and getting desired results for her clients. Joujou's eye for detail ensures that none of her properties are overlooked. Further, whether it is a two-bedroom condo or a spectacular mansion, no client is treated differently because everyone is just as important to her. She loves traveling and feels very fortunate to have visited and enjoyed many countries' people and customs.
