What Joan loves most about the real estate business is the relationships she has built over the years. Understanding that real estate is a huge investment and commitment to many families, she guides, leads, and protects her clients during their real estate journey. She enjoys building relationships and helping clients achieve their real estate goals. What her clients love about her: “She is truly a "pit bull" when it comes to getting the best deal during closing. The seller received multiple offers that were higher and even a cash buyer, but Joan was able to persuade the seller to accept our offer! She even helped us to get discounts from the seller's escrow company and our home inspection! Every little thing adds up when you are purchasing a home, so these discounts helped tremendously.” –David M. “Her knowledge and experience of the market was very evident and we felt confident that with her we would be in good hands. All this proved to be true. She navigated us through a very tight window of selling and buying the place we wanted. She gave us crucial suggestions in listing our place and placing offers for the new place. We of course listened, and ended up getting 15 offers for our place within a week and getting our offer accepted for the place we wanted!” –Larry L. “With the stress of planning a wedding, Joan made the home buying process a breeze. We were in no hurry to purchasing a home but within 26 days we had a home! Wow!”-Amy P. Joan is married to David Ho and they have two chatty daughters, Angela and Sara. Aside from real estate, Joan loves hanging out with her family, hiking, and hosting parties.
