Realtor
License #:

Joanne is a skilled estate professional specializing in luxury properties in the area of East Bay, San Francisco known as Lamorinda which comprises the towns of Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda and the surrounding communities. Prior to becoming a Realtor with Coldwell Banker, she spent more than 20 years in communications, working as a news writer for newspapers and magazines, including a 10-year stint at the New York Times sports department as the boating editor. In this capacity, she covered three America’s Cup yacht races. Joanne, who grew up sailing small boats, also participated in one leg of the Round The World Race from Argentina to England

Joanne and her late husband, a consultant in the golf industry, moved to San Diego from Westport, CT,  where she began her real estate career. She later moved to Lafayette to be near her two sons and their families, including five grandchildren.  Here she continues to use her communications and marketing skills to help her clients achieve their goals. Her communications background as well as her real estate training and experience combine to help insure her clients have a smooth and successful transaction.

“I have found genuine pleasure in helping families solve their home buying or home selling needs,” she explained. “A home usually represents a person’s biggest single investment, as well as being an expression of one’s lifestyle, personality and tastes. A successful agent will inspire the trust and confidence of the families he or she is working with. That’s my goal.”

Joanne is a member of the Lafayette Garden Club, the Mt. Diablo Dog Training Club, the Diablo Valley German Shepherd Club, Golden State German Shepherd Rescue, the German Shepherd Dog Club of America, and the New York Yacht Club.  She enjoys gardening, golf, sailing, and her two German Shepherds, who have her well-trained. She is grateful for her fabulous family and friends, and exceptional clients.
