Joanne is not the first realtor we've worked with, but she is clearly the best. We had rather special requirements for the home, and most realtors we spoke to were just pushing us towards becoming more standard. Joanne not only patiently listened and responded to our complex and peculiar demands, she was able to provide us with exactly that kind of the advice and expertise we needed. Former teacher, she is very knowledgeable of the details and caveats of schools and school district in Contra Costa County, and her tips were truly indispensable. Very well connected to local engineers and construction contractors, she linked us to all the experts we needed, and her references were the best out of all we found through our own search. We started with relatively broad (but special) set of requirements, and it has evolved quite a bit through our search. Joanne supported us firmly through all these adjustments, and finally helped us find a home we truly loved. Last but not least, she is a very, very decent person. The time we spent with her was spent very efficiently, but also it was filled with fun and enjoyment.
