Darlene Kettler: JoAnn sold a home for me 20 years ago in what I would say was almost magic in less than 24 hours! When it was time to sell again, a home that was needed to sell as we are now out of state, she was the one I called. She sold it in 30 days! Need I say more?

Rich Fisher: Great service, knowledgeable and very helpful staff.

Brittany Adams Werts: Amazing staff! Agent is personable, informative, and very knowledgeable in her field! Will definitely recommend!

Kevin Hergenroeder: JoAnn put our house on the market and it was sold in less than a month. She knows the area better than anyone and has great experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.

Andrew Oguin: I bought a home from JoAnn back in February and she’s fantastic. She knows the area and people of the area very well. She’s always been timely in her responses and has done what she said she was going to do. I would seek her out if I ever had to buy again. She is a great agent and if you are looking to buy definitely go to her.

Regina Moss:
JoAnn has been around forever and is extremely knowledgeable. We’ve always used her and probably always will. She’s very good at what she does and always makes sure to listen to what you want and not waste your time.

Melissa Lossos: We interviewed four separate real estate agents and felt most comfortable with JoAnn. She is friendly and personable and was overall just a great fit. She was available when we needed her and if not, there was always someone else there to help. Overall, the communication in general was just great. It was very easy to contact someone and they were quick to return calls with an answer.

Jack Greer: Very hard working. Put in 11% effort. Trust them, try them, you’ll like them!

Ralph and Edith Laufer: JoAnn was able to guide us through the entire buying process. We were very satisfied working with her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. She is knowledgeable about areas close to or within Waterloo and gives great advice. She always made great suggestions and pointed out all of our options.

Tony Gonzales: JoAnn has lived in the Waterloo area her whole life. She is very knowledgeable and that’s why we chose her. She puts all her effort into being a great realtor and it pays off because we had a fantastic experience. She gets a Triple A rating from us.

Dave Bosler: JoAnn came in and had our hose sold in no time. We were very happy with everything she’s done. I wish she could move up here to Michigan and find us another house!

Derek Heise:
JoAnn’s knowledge of the area is impeccable. She knows the history and everyone around here. She also knows a lot about the value of land and houses; sometimes it’s scary how much information she knows. Our experience overall with her was excellent! We had no issues whatsoever. I would use her over and over if I was buying or selling again. I can’t see any faults with her.

Kelly Skags: JoAnn Meier is excellent. I have recommended her several times and would definitely use her again. She answers her phone day or night and just provided us with an excellent experience overall.

Paul and Betty Richardson:
We were really satisfied with our experience with JoAnn. We tried to sell our house before and had no luck, but with JoAnn, in a couple of days we had multiple people viewing the home. She’s really good at what she does.
