Hi! I'm Joan.
Real estate is one of the most exciting investments you can make, and it should be a fun and rewarding experience. I am your one-stop source for real estate services throughout the Northwest Suburbs of Illinois!
"We could not have handpicked a better realtor."
Joan was there every step of the way. Any questions we had, she answered. Joan was/is very committed, hard working and friendly. We would highly recommend her and are glad to call Joan Burny our "first friend in Barrington!" -- Amy & Will
Work with an experienced & qualified specialist.
Whether you are buying or selling your home, working with a qualified real estate professional gives you a competitive advantage. I have had much experience and enjoy working with relocation buyers and sellers, first time buyers, move up buyers and sellers, and sellers who have decided to downsize. I have also worked with short sales and foreclosures.

The Accredited Buyer's Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded by the Real Estate Buyer's Agent Council (REBAC), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, to real estate practitioners who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
CRS is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Less than 4% of all realtors hold the CRS designation. Since 1977, the Council of Residential Specialists has offered in-depth training on negotiating and closing smoother transactions, working in the buyers' and sellers' best interest and building a referral business.
This two-year certificate is part of the Certified Agent Advantage program. Qualified agents become certified as relocation experts by participating in one or more Certified Agent Advantage courses, passing a written exam upon completion, and undergoing a comprehensive background check. The course covers issues surrounding the purchase of a destination house, as well as the most effective techniques for helping clients research communities, locate their new home, and settle into their new area anywhere in the United States.
With inventory still low, now is an ideal time to list your home with me. I will assist you with practical ideas on how to successfully prepare your house for sale, develop a competitive pricing strategy, and create a custom marketing plan!
Buying your home? I will listen carefully to your wants and needs, help you determine a realistic budget, and not waste your time showing you homes that won't work for you!
