HOLMES BRINGING YOU HOME

Professional Background

"Holmes Bringing You Home"...that is what I like to do!  Helping others to buy or sell their "home", whether that be a house, a farm, a piece of waterfront property, a cottage, a condo or a place of business.  It is important to me to do my very best to meet your needs and to work together for the goal at hand. 

Working with CENTURY 21 Lanthorn Real Estate Ltd since 1999 in various administration roles, has allowed me to gain valuable knowledge about the real estate business.  Over my professional years I have acquired great Customer Care skills, Marketing skills, Accounting skills, Managing skills and MOST important...Listening skills.

 

 

Personal Background

The Napanee area has been my home for the past 15 years, and before that I was raised and grew up in the Brockville/Athens area but was born in Picton.  I am one of six children...three boys, three girls and both my parents are Dutch.  My hard work and determination to strive to do by best attitude comes from my mother.

I am a very proud Mom of four boys and have been busy over the years with working full time and doing lots travelling to the boys sporting events.  Hockey, softball, soccer, football...I think they played them all.  Some of the happiest moments I have had, are when I have seen one of my boys reach their goal...whether it be in a sport, in school, in their jobs or in their personal lives.

 

 

 

Personal Interests

I enjoy watching renovation shows on TV...always learning new ideas and outlooks on how a room could look.  A simple change in paint colour can truly make a difference with a small investment.  I have being doing some sort of  crafting hobby since I was little and quilting is my newest hobby, the challenge is finding the time to work on my projects.

I love to travel and look at the architecture of buildings in other areas of the world.  Some of the places I have been lucky enough to travel to are; Holland, St Maarten, Mexico, Dominican, Colorado, Texas, Florida and out west to Alberta a few times.  I would love to do more travelling in Europe in the future as the history and the buildings are very interesting to me.

Being able to relax and destress from life is important to me as well.  I have started taking yoga which helps and just being able to calm my brain down at night with music also destresses me.

 

Community Involvement

Being a member of the CENTURY 21 Lanthorn Real Estate team has given me the opportunity to participate in different community events over the years.  From Trash Bash day, being Big Bike Captain, being a Relay for Life Leader and being the Family Day Popcorn maker to mention a few.  Getting involved in the community is a great way to meet the people of your town,  Greater Napanee are has a lot to offer people.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

 

"Dear Joanne!

We didn't work long together but the time we did spend together was short and sweet! You sold my house in two days, you were efficient and timely! I always had feedback the same day from you.  When I had questions you answered them promptly and correctly. You dealt with my craziness at the peaks of my anxiety as I have never sold a home before!

I can't thank you enough for all that you have done! Also to century 21, you have a great representative here and you should be proud she has you on her sign!"

Jennifer Wales

“Joanne is a consummate real estate professional. She had every visit well planned in advance, making the best use of my limited time. She had reviewed possible properties according to my criteria and selected the appropriate ones for viewing to ensure limited wasted effort. Her research efforts assisted in the final negotiations and provided key information to allow closing on my terms. Throughout the entire process she always had a smile despite dealing with a difficult and demanding client. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Napanee area.”

"When it came time to buy our new home, Joanne Holmes was chosen by the real-estate agent that sold our previous home.  We were in a different province and needed all the help we could get.  We had less than one week to look at houses and to buy a house.  
Joanne came thru for us.  She showed us about 11 houses in the price range that we suggested and within 3 days we had not only picked a house that we wanted, where we wanted, we also had a back up house in case the offer fell through.  Joanne worked wonders and we are now settled in our ‘new’ home.  Joanne was very easy to get along with and very knowledgeable, she helped with what kinds of things we should be looking for, like one place had terrible electricity, and she also suggested the possibilities that could be.  Coming from a different province we had no clue on hydro, electricity, etc.  She informed us of all we needed to get us going. I would definitely have Joanne help us again if need be.
Thanks Joanne, you are one in a million!"
