    Just like you, I wanted to call Arizona home and embrace a healthy outdoor lifestyle blended with relaxed luxury living.
    Today as a full-time licensed Realtor® I specialize in making Arizona dreams come true for buyers who want to move to the Scottsdale/Phoenix metro. Your home search is unique and you deserve exceptional personalized service.

    My primary focus is to be of service to my clients. With more than $27 million in sales volume in the first six months of 2022, I am a high producing Arizona agent and in the top 3% of Coldwell Banker agents worldwide.

    If you are ready to list your Valley home I'll provide highly targeted and results-oriented marketing and individualized client services to ensure the timely sale of your property. As an experienced professional with a keen ability to connect with my clients, you will always be treated with honesty, integrity and authenticity.

    You can also catch me hosting "The Retiring Right" show where I utilize my real estate expertise to highlight the best active adult lifestyle communities in the region.

    I LOVE people.  I LOVE homes.  It's really that simple, but what led me to real estate is a little more complicated.  I'm a farmer's daughter from Wisconsin who grew up milking cows, baling hay and riding horses.  Those were long hard days on the farm that instilled in me an unmatched work ethic and exceptional values that now permeate my professional life as a Realtor. 

    Prior to real estate, I pursued my childhood dream of becoming a journalist and covered some of the major events that shaped our country.  I spent more than two decades as a TV and radio anchor/reporter working in Florida, Maryland, Minnesota, Arkansas and right here in Arizona. 

    I love to spend time outside and soak up the beauty of Arizona.   I dig the mountains and hiking with my sweet husband, Scott, and our dog Walter. My favorite Arizona hike is Havasupai Falls and I made the 20 mile trek in and out in just one day!  I'm a yogi and taught yoga for years.  It's on my yoga mat where this type-A personality finds some peace and serenity.  I have deep friendships and love belly laughs, good wine and great food.

    Nancy gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    We met JoAnn at an open house, and while that residence wasn't for us she proceeded to work closely to help us find the perfect Arizona home. Everything about our experience with JoAnn was top notch: professional, personable, trustworthy and above all caring and conscientious. Her followthrough was the best we've ever experienced in a real estate transaction. We highly recommend JoAnn. You won't be disappointed.
    Nancy gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    Simply put, Jo Ann was exceptional. As an out of state buyer, she went above and beyond to answer our (many!) questions. She guided us through the process with professionalism, expertise and kindness. We have a beautiful second home in Scottsdale, as well as a wonderful new friend. Thank you, Jo Ann! Nancy and Dan Stepuszek

    Jo Ann was incredibly well organized, always ahead of us, and was a strong negotiator. Gave great advice but always with our best interest in mind. Best I've worked with.

    What a pleasure it was to work with Jo Ann! She was able to find a home for our multi generational family and get us under contract on our dream house. So grateful for her partnership on our purchase!
    Bum gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    I just move to Arizona from all the way from the east and I do not know much about this area. I was very fortunate to meet her at her open house. I cannot speak highly enough of Jo Ann as our real estate agent. Her professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics are very much appreciated and respected. She is detail oriented, honest, good with people.
    Jeffrey gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    Jo Ann was outstanding to work with. My need was for a house that would accommodate my family. Jo Ann went above and beyond to source homes within my specifications exceeding my expectation. Her diligence to detail, relationships, her professional and friendly manner and follow up was a welcome constant throughout the entire process resulting in the perfect purchase. Thank you Jo Ann!!! - Jeff B.

    Jo Ann took the time to research properties in our area, discuss possible options for sales, and worked with our schedule. She works hard for your sale and deserves your consideration.
    Chris gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    Jo Ann made homeownership a breeze. She asked me all the right questions, and found me the perfect home in the perfect location! Her guidance was beyond my expectations. Despite the very hot market, she landed me in the right place at the right price. On a scale of Five Stars - she gets SIX!
    Mark gave Jo Ann 5 stars out of 5
    We found Jo Ann after flying into Phoenix to look at several open houses in the Scottsdale area. Once we met Jo Ann, we knew she would be the realtor for us. She was low-pressure and really wanted to get to know my wife and I to get a good understanding of our needs. So, we scheduled another trip shortly after, and spent a day with Jo Ann looking at homes that matched our style. I really liked that she didn't waste our time with homes that weren't in our price point. She was thorough with her research and was over-the-top with making sure our home search experience was comfortable and engaging. Jo Ann also scheduled visits with us in recently developed communities and we ended up contracting to build a new home. She has been great working with the builder and has explained a lot to us, and has made sure we have been well represented throughout the process. We couldn't be happier! A true professional!

    Response from Jo Ann
    Angie, your kind words and your trust in me mean so much. I'm so grateful to have been able to work with you on the sale of not one, but now two homes! Thank you for allowing me to be of service - it is pure joy! :)
