“Joan is way above par when it comes to real estate agents. My wife Patty and I have bought and sold multiple properties through Joan and I can't tell you how impressive she is. She's smart as a whip and has a great business mentality. She's an amazing negotiator, and directing a business myself, it is refreshing to work with someone who knows their business and can get you the best deal possible.”
Phillips Smith,Chairman Emeritus TASER INTERNATIONAL
