Client Testimonials

"We had our home on the market with another realtor for 5 months.We let that realtor go after he wasn’t motivated in selling our home! We hired Joanna and a few weeks later Our home sold!"

★★★★★
"My family and I were so lucky to have Joanna Tift help us with our relocation to Washington State! Helping out-of-state buyers is no easy task, but she made the best out of our situation. Relocating from Colorado, Joanna made sure to be in close contact with us and keep us in the loop with all the information we would need. We only met her briefly one night, and she already had a few homes lined up based on our previous talks. She was able to take the feedback on those homes and find the perfect home for us. She even went to a house and video chatted with us so we could see it. She made a stressful situation so much easier. I am very glad we got to work with Joanna and her team. She found us the best home, in the best area!"

★★★★★
"Joanna was so easy to work with, it made the whole process a wonderful experience. Right out of the gate, she was extremely attentive and a very active listener. By understanding what we were looking for, she was able to narrow the search and every property she sent us was a solid contender. After viewing a couple of properties, we narrowed our search to one and she kicked into negotiator mode and shared several ideas to help us get the property we wanted at the best possible price. Overall, I can't imagine the experience going any better from our perspective and we sincerely appreciate Joanna's knowledge, professionalism, and focus. We have already referred her to a couple of our friends and will absolutely use her in the future. If you want a real estate agent that is focused and results driven, you want Joanna Tift!"

"Joanna was THE BEST we could have ever hoped for! She helped us find our dream home in just ONE day. As first time home buyers, she was exactly what we needed - she answered all of our questions, taught us what we didn't know, and helped the process go 10000% smoother than we ever thought possible. I can't recommend her highly enough!! Thank you Joanna!!"

★★★★★
"Joanna was the best choice we could've made for finding a new home. Her local knowledge of the area and market was a huge asset. She was transparent, candid, and honest throughout our entire experience. This was my first home buying experience and she helped us understand the process from start to finish. She will certainly be my first choice if I ever need to buy or sell a house again in the area."
