    "We have had the best buying experience we've ever had. We've purchased many property's, as we buy rentals here in Ohio. JoAnne goes far beyond the call of duty. She's been a God-send to us. We will continue to Buy/Sell from her in the future. I would highly recommend her" Elizabeth & Ron Ott
    "JoAnne was VERY satisfactory. She was responsive and sensitive to our position on the sale. Good follow up and communication" Gary Schmerzend
    "We are so very happy that our home buying experience was such a positive experience all the way around. But the shining light thru this journey was JoAnne. All of our questions and concerns were handled promptly. Being our first time, this personal attention was very reassuring. Her genuine concern was refreshing. She dealt with all of our concerns as if they were important no matter how small. She notified us of any changes and when we hit a bump in the road, she handled them with a purpose, and made us feel that none of our concerns were too small. If a problem came up where she didn't have an answer, she found that answer and notified us promptly. She earned both our respect and admiration. (WE LIKE HER) But most of all, we appreciated her concern for our feelings and fears associated with such a big step. (The gal has style) She is both personable and lacking in the modern day world. Being of modest means, this may be our last house, but working with her makes me want to buy another home. In a nutshell, she is Superb, excellent, incredible and all that really good stuff" Don & Shelley Behnen

You are our Realtor for life and once we get settled down, you will be the recipient of many a referral from us with the highest of praise." Walter Fortune
    "We have come to know many realty agents over the years. None of the competitors have even come close with respect to the knowledge level, service expertise, and professionalism that JoAnne has demonstrated. We never doubted for one minute that she would succeed in finding exactly what we wanted when we initiated our search.
