Get to know JoAnn Abercrombie
I believe that real estate is not just about properties; it's about people. I am passionate about listening to and understanding each of my clients' personal goals, with a real commitment to help make their real estate move a smooth, stress-free experience from start to finish. I have over 27 years experience in virtually every aspect of the real estate industry, including finance, appraisal, advertising, marketing, and I'm excellent at negotiating for my clients' interests. While using up-to-date technology and keeping abreast of the current market, I offer a personalized approach to meeting my clients' wants and needs. I employ customized marketing programs and put my heart into helping my clients make their real estate dreams a reality.
And one thing that really sets me apart from other realtors is I will assist my clients stage their home to make it most appealing to potential buyers. I have studied home staging, and am very good at transforming the look of rooms by furniture placement and accessorizing. Home staging is crucial to selling a home, especially in this market, and to realize the home's maximum sale price. When I list a home for sale, I actually assist my clients by helping them move furniture to accentuate a focal point in the rooms, and to improve the spaciousness and flow of the room. I use accessories they already have throughout their home to make interest in the rooms, and this staging service is included as part of what I do when I list a home. And I will also recommend removing wallpaper, painting or other improvements as needed.
Licensed as a Realtor since 1985, and having a Broker's license since 1993, I have sold more than a thousand homes over the years, and won nearly every award possible for my creative advertising and my sales successes, including top company producer for listings and sales for a large local real estate firm. I hold a B.A. Degree, from Pennsylvania State University, in Speech Broadcasting/Radio & Television, with a minor in Advertising. I worked for over 2 years at WEOL Radio,in Elyria, Ohio, writing and producing commercials. This has proved invaluable in helping me write creative, effective advertising to market my listings.
I also earned a degree in Business/Accounting from Lorain County Community College, graduating With Honors. I worked for over 4 years as a corporate accountant, which has given me extensive knowledge as to tax advantages of homeownership, creative financing options, and much more insight to assist clients. I owned my own real estate company for over 3 years, which I learned from in so many ways.
My father was a builder and an appraiser, so I had actually been around the business of real estate my whole life, way before I decided that Real Estate was my career of choice. I picked up so much about appraisal and construction from my father. Over the past 27 years, I have taken numerous continuing education programs, in all aspects of the real estate business, including appraisal, finance, tax advantages of home ownership, home inspection issues, and construction, as well as a number of other topics.
But it's not just the combination of all my life training and experiences that have developed me into the Realtor I am today. It's my caring attitude that really makes me stand apart from others in my field. I truly love what I do, and I put my heart into helping my clients have the best possible real estate experience. Making their real estate dreams a reality. and in fact, exceeding my clients' expectations by offering a personal approach to meeting their wants and needs is how I do business. I've made it my focus and business motto, "When It Matters to You, It Matters to JoAnn." I'd love the opportunity to earn your business too!
