Joanna & Carl sincerely believe that owning a home is still the "American Dream."

   Whether you're purchasing a new home, marketing your existing home, renting or leasing a property, it's imperative to make educated decisions during the process. Joanna and Carl have the experience, knowledge and professional real estate expertise you need. 
   We also know that sometimes it is better to rent. So, we help people find the right home for now, which may be a rental home.
   This website will familiarize you with the complete process of Real Estate transactions and is presented as a public service to give you the knowledge for making the largest investment of a lifetime.

What we do.
What We Do:

   We turn houses into homes - and we eliminate the stress commonly involved in real estate transactions.
   If you are selling your home, we help you price it to both maximize your selling price and minimize your selling time.  Joanna's nearly 30 years of experience as a real estate appraiser provides you with the expertise to price your home accurately. 
   We help you prepare your home for sale.  Joanna's book, Up Your Value, is provided free to anyone who lists with us.  
  Up Your Value provides guidance into how to raise the value of your home without spending a lot of time or money. It takes the stress out of getting your home ready to bring to bring to market. 
   If you are buying a home, we help you find the right home, at the right price, in the right location.  Joanna's nearly 30 years of experience appraising homes provides unparalleled knowledge of what brings value to a home (or not) and what various communities and locations have to offer with respect to price ranges, floor plans (if available), and amenities.

   Carl's real estate experience makes him an expert on the paperwork needed to complete a transaction.  
Future is Ahead-Past is Over
Why It Matters!

   Whether you are selling your home or buying a home or investment property, you have made a decision for your future.        To move into the future, you have to move forward and it matters to you how quickly and painlessly you can do that.  Because it matters to you, it matters to us.
What Makes Us Different?

o  We care.  Yes we do. We know that our success is built on people like you being happy with our service.  We want you to be happy with what we do and how we do it.

o  We communicate.  We keep our clients informed both before and after the contract is written.  We not only talk, we listen. Our knowledge of homes, the areas, and our ability to "read between the lines" to find out what you really want and needs help us to find the home that is just right for you.

o  We are knowledgeable.  We know the areas in which we work.  We know the communities and the communities within the communities.  We also are familiar with difficult circumstances such as selling a home that is part of an estate, or dealing with elderly parents.  

o  We are patient.  If you are looking for a house, we understand that it may take time to find exactly the right place.   If you are planning to sell, we realize that it can be traumatic to leave a place you have called home for many years and that you may need time to "get your act together" and take the big step to selling.  We will do our best to make the process as stress-free and pleasant as possible.

o  We talk straight.  We will let you know if we believe you are not being objective.  That could mean not being realistic about pricing your home or about what and where you can buy with the money you have to spend.  

o  We are networked.  Not only do we belong to the Arizona Multiple Listing Service, but we are connected with other agents and people who might just be the people looking for a home you are selling or have a home you would be interested in buying.  We also know all sorts of people you might need for moving, handyman services, cleaning, home inspections, loans, etc.  

o  We are ethical.  We know that honesty and integrity result in the best working relationships and friendships.

We are in this business for the long haul and not the fast buck.  We know if we treat you right you will tell a few friends, and that if we treat you wrong you will tell everyone.  

But more than that, being ethical is how we were raised.  We are old school.  Our word is our bond.

We treat you the way we would like to be treated.

o  We try to work smart as well as hard.  We hold open houses, we advertise, we network, we produce flyers.  We just don't take a listing and sit on it hoping someone else will sell it.  We know that if you list with us, you are counting on us to market your home.  We take our job seriously.

If you are looking for a home or an investment property, we will not waste your time showing you houses that do not meet your needs or your budget.  We will take the time to understand what you are looking for.
Who we want to work with:

Sellers:  We want to work with sellers who are interested in selling their homes and who wish to work with two agents that will be committed to providing results.   We want to work with sellers who understand that we know what we are doing and that the advice we may give is intended to enable the sale of their property to be fast and at the best possible price.  We want work will sellers that understand that if they want to sell their property they have to make their property available to be seen.  If you are relatively pleasant and co-operative we would like to meet with you and discuss listing your home or investment property.
Buyers:   We want to work with buyers who are truly looking for a home, not just out for a day's entertainment.  We want to work with buyers who are honest with us about their wants, their needs and what they can afford.  We want to work with buyers who have done their homework and gotten pre-approved by a lender so that they know how much they can spend.  We won't waste your time showing us homes that are not what you are looking for and we hope you will have consideration for our time.  
If you are truly interested in selling or buying a home in the areas we specialize in, we are asking that you give us a chance to be of service to you.

"We were so fortunate to obtain your phone number. Your willingness to complete any task and expertise in selling the house made a quick, completed sale...the fact that you maintained excellent communication and carried out a stress-free atmospher for our family was a wonderful gift for Dad." Family of Wendell & Betty Eden
"Joanna and Carl sold my house
and gave me extra attention I've
never seen a realtor go above
and beyond the way Joanna did.
She even helped me get into my
new home which is an apartment in a senior
community. I'm forever grateful to her.
They were both great.
I would highly recommend them."
