With a background in fashion design, marketing, and sales, Joanne has unerring skill at finding the perfect home to suit her clients' personal style, both aesthetically and socially.
Joanne understands that client satisfaction is paramount, whether buying or selling a home. Her record as a Top Producer for 15+ years, with a business built exclusively on client referrals, is a testament to her success in not only meeting her clients' needs, but more importantly, in exceeding their expectations. Joanne has lived and worked in Florida for 24 years and has extensive knowledge of the best properties and communities that South Florida has to offer.
On a personal note, Joanne is extremely proud of her two grown daughters, Melissa and Gabriella, who are 11 years apart. Joanne and her husband, Michael, (who hails from South Africa), spent Melissa's childhood and teenage years in New York City where they owned and operated a high-end women's leather clothing factory.
They relocated to the Boca Raton area to raise Gabriella, who attended both Pine Crest and St. Andrews schools, then went on to graduate from American University in Washington, D.C. and pursue a career in Chicago, Illinois. Gabriella recently accepted a new position in Manhattan and is thrilled to be relocating to New York. Melissa and her husband, Adam, currently reside in Manhattan with their children, Tao and Sasha who attend Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School.
Joanne is a native of Philadelphia and a graduate of Temple University. She began her business career as the co-owner of a successful, high-fashion boutique in Center City Philadelphia. Aside from her family, her passions include the fine arts and a deep-seated love of animals, particularly her two King Charles Cavalier Spaniels, Harper and Riley.
