Why Work With Joan?
Here's what our satisfied customers are saying about us:
Joan was an excellent resource when it came to marketing and selling our two-family house in Newton Exceeded expectations in customer service, strategy approach. Her character is top notch and she’s smart and very capable of bringing a house to market and executing on the sale while keeping all the issues off your plate. She excelled in taking over the process and clearly describing what we were responsible for taking care of and on what time frame, which was very helpful to keep us on track. We work in realestate, but aren’t fluent with the buying/selling process and she proved to be a very great asset during the process.

Joan is the best! Knows the market, high energy person, attentive to details, fun to work with, forthright and honest. From start to finish we were always well-informed, offered suggestions to improve price, like staging, and ways to attract more buyers, on target. I have worked with Joan for about 30 years; first as the owner/director/teacher of her children's preschool, as an interior decorator/designer for our home, and as our real estate broker. She is a winner!

Joan Sullivan helped me to sell my house. From the get go she came across as a seasoned professional who is committed to providing excellent service to her clients. She provided me with the relevant information regarding pricing in my area. She managed the selling process efficiently up to its successful conclusion. This was a stressful experience, and Joan’s expertise helped me to reduce it and get through it.

Joan was wonderful to work with! We were first-time home buyers and Joan was a great resource every step of the way. She has great insight into the housing market and the locations we were considering and she ultimately lead us to our dream home. We would definitely work with her again and would highly recommend her to our friends and family!

As our seller’s agent, Joan was efficient and thorough. She priced the residence in line with comparable listings, staged the property, marketed it promptly and developed qualified buyers immediately. She handled all details including fire and condo certificates, dealt with attorneys at both ends of the transaction, and identified an excellent cleaning crew to prepare the unit for turnover to the new owner. Joan updated the information flow by communicating all developments by text and email. Total time elapsed was brisk – from signing on with Joan as listing agent until the property sale closed was exactly one month! You can’t do much better than that.

We would heartily recommend Joan Sullivan to anyone who is looking for a hard-working, tenacious broker. She sold us our first home in 1995 and she helped us sell this same home in 2016, after only five days on the market. On both occasions, we felt like we were in the hands of a superb professional. Thank you, Joan!

We worked with Joan recently (and successfully) as we purchased our very first home. In Joan, we found a trusted and valuable resource, and more importantly, an ally for what can be a scary and confusing process. In our very first meeting, she set the stage that she is on ‘our side,’ which was remarkable because we'd met with several agents previously -- we just felt like we could trust her! Because she has decades of experience, she helped us appropriately expand our search to consider houses we otherwise would have overlooked and make an educated bid. We walked away from the purchase confident, satisfied, and truly elated about this huge step. My family is thrilled to recommend Joan to anyone looking to purchase a home in Newton, and look forward to working with her again in the future.

Joan is lovely to work with! She is patient, accommodating, and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the market. She was an excellent advisor and advocate throughout the entire process. She truly found us the perfect house and we highly recommend her!

We just purchased a home with Joan Sullivan’s help last week. She took what could have been a stressful situation, as it was an international relocation, and made it a nice experience for our whole family!
Joan did a lot of the work - so we did not have to! We really appreciated the fact that she knows every nook and cranny of the neighborhoods we visited. It really made us more comfortable knowing that she could tell us everything we needed to know about the area, including schools, supermarkets - and even who lives on the block!
Joan was also so warm and friendly and yet such a great negotiator. We feel lucky to have landed in such wonderful hands.
Thank you Hammond!

We had a terrific experience working with Joan on the sale of our condominium in Jamaica Plain and the purchase of a new unit, also in Jamaica Plain. She was clearly very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, and was very attentive to the myriad of details that attend both transactions. Best of all, we got 10% over market for our unit, allowing us to upgrade many features in our new place.
Great job, Joan!
