Joanie assisted us with the purchase of a home in Blue Ridge. She was professional, knowledgeable, and very responsive. Would use her again if needed, and would recommend her to others without hesitation.
Joanie was great to work with as a first home buyer. She explained everything to me, and was always available. I would definitely recommend Joanie to anyone looking get their home for the best price and with ease.
I have searched for over 3 years looking for a home. I hired Joanie a few months ago and she made it all happen! She found me my perfect home in my number 1 neighborhood. She even sold our current home in less than 30 days. It was a life changing decision to hire her as our agent. I don't think 5 stars are enough to describe her knowledge, expertise, responsiveness or negotiating skills. It's plain and simple, if you really want to buy or sell a home this is the agent to call.
Joanie has many years of experience and is especially an expert in the Olympic Manor/Blue Ridge/North Beach communities. She knows the ins/outs of how to get the best deal possible. I have total confidence in her knowledge and expertise and haven't experienced any topic that she can't tackle. She has represented us for our first two (and only to date) single family home purchases and 1 single family home sale.
Joanie Brennan did an outstanding job guiding us through the selling & purchasing process. - very responsive ( at all hours of the day ) - broad network of resources ( inspectors, handymen, sewer etc ) - spent the time understand our families needs - presented risks & upside through the listing & negotiating processes.
I have bought two houses with Joanie and sold one. They were all stressful experiences for me (especially one), but Joanie handled them all with professionalism and ease. She is honest (won't just tell you what you want to hear), detail-oriented and will "go to bat" for you. She is highly knowledgeable, caring and sincere. You has my highest recommendation!
Joanie was recommended to us by neighbors in Blue Ridge, and we are very glad that we chose her as the realtor to help us sell our dad's home recently in Blue Ridge. It was an emotional time for us, as we were dealing with the sale of his home after he passed away. Joanie was on top of things that we would never have thought of. Any issue that we ran into before listing the house, she had a contact for us. Painter, house cleaner, professional staging of the home, landscaper, sewer line repair ---she knew just who to contact. She even met the people occasionally if it was too hard for us to get there due to working full time. Her experience in the sale of the home was invaluable, and we relied on her expertise constantly. She knows the Blue Ridge and Ballard areas very well, and knew just how to price the home. The house sold within a week, and for a price we were very pleased with. We most certainly would recommend Joanie to anyone looking for an excellent realtor.
Simply put, Joanie is an industry expert. Whether you are buying/selling your first house or your tenth, she is there every step of the way. She worked tirelessly for us and was always available to answer questions or look into tasks. When we needed some things fixed, Joanie had stagers, handy men, yard service and movers available on a moments notice. She understood our comfort level and never put us in a position that we were not 100% on board with. Buying and selling a home is stressful and she is an amazing adviser who knows the market inside and out. We have always used Joanie and we always will. She's the best!
Joanie was amazing! She did such a great job on our house! We were extremely happy with our service. She was so helpful and knowledgeable - took a creative approach to our house and sold it in one day!
Joanie Brennan was exceptionally professional as well as warm and supportive. She was honest, straightforward and held her integrity in all our dealings. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family.
Joanie was friendly, warm & knowledgeable. She went above and beyond!

Joanie has helped us find and buy 2 homes, 1 for ourselves and another for my mother that moved here from Portland. Her ability to provide excellent insight into both neighborhoods - at the street level, and readily define what the appropriate value and housing match to our requirements were to the 2 homes she found for us. Then once found, she is a perfect representative to the sellers, and is able to craft the right balance to win with our offer. We would highly recommend Joanie in all categories of skills, knowledge, communications, that works hard on our behalf.
It is with pleasure and gratitude that I share comments on my experience with Joanie Brennan in the selling of my condo and purchase of new condo. Joanie is honest, strategic, unbelievably patient, and very professional. She understands the Seattle market exceedingly well. She never showed me places that weren't within my parameters and always listened carefully to my comments. I was desperate to find a place at times and wanted to expand my geographic reach but Joanie reminded me of why I was selling my old condo outside of Seattle and brought me back to center. I have recommended her to others for residential real estate needs and I am fortunate to know her.
Joanie is a consummate professional. I have been working with her for over 2 years. She is very skilled at finding the right properties for me as a buyer, and is outstanding in her work selling my properties as well. I have the highest regard for her skills and knowledge of the real estate market and recommend her strongly.
Joanie was honest, thorough, and kind. She has a wonderful balance about her, knowing when to push and when to sit. She also brings a great deal of knowledge to the table which I was very grateful for.
I'm inspired by Joanie's amazing ability to get things done! Within minutes after my offer was accepted, she already had my home inspection and sewer inspection setup for the next morning.
You've been absolutely amazing and top notch through every twist and turn of this complex (to me!) transaction. I feel so lucky and grateful that we were able to work with you and I look forward to singing your praises to everyone I know who is looking to buy or sell a house.
Joanie is professional and very knowledgible. She asked great questions during the inspection that I did not think of myself and helped us get financing when first lender denied property due to its 'fixer condition'.
Absolutely outstanding. I could not have imagined or asked for a better agent. Joanie was really amazing. We just moved to Seattle and she did such a great job of showing us the area and making us feel comfortable. She also did a lot of legwork via phone and email before we moved out. It was my first experience buying a home and I feel very lucky to have found her.
Joanie was great - very positive and encouraging and helpful. She was always very responsive, returned phone calls, assured me things were going to work out, even when it looked like they weren't.
Joanie was extemely professional and insightful when it came to marketing our home. She was responsive and proactive throughout. She's a terrific agent to work with!

Her understanding of how to position our house in the market helped us to get a better price and a faster transaction than we had even hoped for. I have recommended her to everyone I know who is thinking of selling or buying.
If Joanie has not been checking for new listings daily we would never have gotton our condo. We were very impressed on how thorough she was writing upthe offer and following the transaction thru closing. Joanie is a great negotiator...she knew exactly what it would take to have the best offer and win!
Rob & Jen
Joanie did an incredible job informing us of properties on the market and making the entire selling/buying process go smoothly. Joanie is one of the few agents we've met that is honest, professional and straightforward--no fake sales tactics or false games. We really appreciate these qualities in her and will continue to refer our friends to her happily.
Joanie is a great, knowledgeable agent. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market. She'll be our agent as long as she's in the business!
