"Joanna is a very compassionate real estate agent who is always representing the buyer's interest. We met Joanna in Feb 2020, right before the pandemic lockdown, she helped us make an offer for a single-family home that we really liked in the Seattle area. The house was not built by the time we made an offer, and it was due to close after 6 months, however, construction was delayed due to the pandemic lockdown and we ended up waiting 2.5 more months. During this process, Joanna was very helpful in keeping us posted regarding the builder's progress and she convinced the builder to compensate us for the extra rent expenses we paid due to the construction delay. After several negotiations with the builder, we got the home key in October first week and we are happy. I highly recommend Joanna for homebuyers in the King County area."
"Joanna was so easy to work with, it made the whole process a wonderful experience. Right out of the gate, she was extremely attentive and a very active listener. By understanding what we were looking for, she was able to narrow the search, and every property she sent us was a solid contender. After viewing a couple of properties, we narrowed our search to one and she kicked into negotiator mode and shared several ideas to help us get the property we wanted at the best possible price. Overall, I can't imagine the experience going any better from our perspective and we sincerely appreciate Joanna's knowledge, professionalism, and focus. We have already referred her to a couple of our friends and will absolutely use her in the future. If you want a real estate agent that is focused and results-driven, you want Joanna Tift!"
"We were referred to Joanna by a previous client. She helped us through every step in the purchase of our new home in Maple Valley with genuine interest and concern for our needs. Over the course of our search, she drove us to 16 different properties that we'd chosen, and always included at least one that she researched herself and threw in just to gauge our interest, in the end, we ended up purchasing one of her suggested homes! She was quick to respond to our many first-time-homebuyer questions, and always followed up with us if she didn't have the answer on hand (even after we'd already made the purchase). Many times, she took it upon herself to talk with the sellers to get information in anticipation of our needs. She's professional, knowledgeable, intelligent, and kind. A great choice for an agent. So glad we got to know her!"
"My family and I were so lucky to have Joanna Tift help us with our relocation to Washington State! Helping out-of-state buyers is no easy task, but she made the best out of our situation. Relocating from Colorado, Joanna made sure to be in close with us and keep us in the loop with all the information we would need. We met her briefly one night, and she already had a few homes lined up based on our previous talks. She was able to take the feedback on those homes and find the perfect home for us. She even went and video chatted with us so we could see it. She made a stressful situation so much easier. I am very glad we got to work with Joanna and her team. She found us the best home, in the best area!"
"Joanna represented us in the sale of our home. From start to finish, she attentively listened to every need and expectation for our family. As we prepared to put our home on the market, she walked us through the process of staging our home, which brought multiple offers to the table. Joanna focused on the best interest of our family during the negotiation process and knew how to position us in a way that made the process as smooth as possible. She has called and checked in regularly to answer any questions along the way. She is not only an expert in her industry, she genuinely cares about the needs of the families she works with and we will miss working with her once we close on the sale of our home. She is truly the best!"
"Joanna is wonderful! She was very easy to work with and made the buying experience enjoyable. Being from out of state, she worked with us to show us as many homes as we needed to during a short visit to the area. She is very knowledgeable of the area and offered expert advice for deciding what area we wanted to settle in. She made the buying process easy even from across the country. She always notified us of what to expect next and guided us seamlessly throughout the process. If you are looking to move or sell, we would highly recommend Joanna. She and her staff are very easy to work with, always available, and very personable. We look forward to working with her again in the future."
"Joanna was an unbelievable agent. My wife and I were a little wishy-washy on whether or not we wanted to purchase a year ago and went back and forth on that decision. Joanna was patient and gave us the time, space, and information we needed to finally make our decision to purchase. The purchase of our home was amazingly smooth and we closed on the expected date with no hiccups. After getting into our home Joanna checked up on us to see what else she could for us. I can't say enough good things about how prompt Joanna was through the whole process!"
"Thank you, Joanna, for all you did for us. You are the friendliest and knowledgeable estate agent we have ever met. The whole experience in finding our dream home and all stages in-between and after were of superior quality. Never did Joanna tire of contacting us and supporting us. Joanna is an expert in her work and very caring to her customers. If ever you need a property or advice, don't hesitate in contacting Joanna Tift at Windermere. We were very blessed to have found you, Joanna. Michael and Valerie Goldstein."
"Joanna helped us purchase our dream home on the Cedar River! She went above and beyond to ensure the sale went through. Joanna was responsive to all our questions and concerns regarding the sale and some of the snags we ran into along the way. Additionally, Joanna was our selling agent for our prior home. With her assistance, we were able to get the house on the market within 4 days and it sold immediately. Thanks, Joanna and The Results Team!"
"I had a great experience with Joanna. Even before I signed on with her, she was already giving me tips and information to ready me for the sale of my house. She kept in constant contact throughout the process and sold my house the first week it was on the market. She is still in contact with me even after I moved away. I've had 6 or 7 Realtors® over the years and was not a big fan of that world. Joanna has made me a believer!"
"Joanna was the best choice we could've made for finding a new home. Her local knowledge of the area and market was a huge asset. She was transparent, candid, and honest throughout our entire experience. This was my first home buying experience and she helped us understand the process from start to finish. She will certainly be my first choice if I ever need to buy or sell a house again in the area."
"From the beginning of selling our home and buying another, Joanna was supportive and positive. When we needed advice with staging, or the number for a handyman, she had multiple suggestions. Ultimately, the she set our price so that we received multiple offers and in the end we sold well above our asking price. It was a smooth, pleasurable process. I highly recommend her."
"Joanna was the best we could have ever hoped! She helped us find our dream home in just one day. As first time home buyers, she was exactly what we needed - she answered all of our questions, taught us what we didn't know, and helped the process go 10000% smoother than we ever thought possible. I can't recommend her highly enough! Thank you Joanna!"
"Joanna has been excellent in providing us with the latest market information as we search for our potential next home. She responds immediately to our requests for showings and is always knowledgeable on each property. She has been a pleasure to work with and we look forward to continuing our search with Joanna leading the way! Thank You, Joanna!"
"Joanna has been instrumental in our rental business. Joanna was able to find the types of properties we were looking for and did a spectacular job negotiating on our behalf. Joanna was even able to find a property that fit our criteria before it came to market. An all-around fantastic job start to finish!"
"Joanna is the most knowledgeable Realtor® I have ever worked with. She knows all of the little things about the property that you expect to get an "I'm not sure" with usually! Great eye and so smart about strengths and weaknesses about a property. Do not miss her by going elsewhere. Above the rest."
"Joanna is a complete professional real estate. I will recommend her without reservation. Find the right apartment and the deal went smooth and fast due to her professional knowledge and experience in real estate field."
"Joanna was amazing. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very detailed oriented and never dropped the ball on anything. I appreciated her so much during this process that is so naturally stressful."
"We had our home on the market with another Realtor® for 5 months. We let that Realtor® go after he wasn’t motivated in selling our home! We hired Joanna and a few weeks later our home sold!"
"Joanna Tift did an amazing job! Very professional and her negotiating skills got exactly what we wanted. Made selling our home seem effortless. Highly recommended! Thanks again! A+."
