Joanna Renner is also a Professional Feng Shui Home Stager for your home's best first impression to buyers!!
In my early 20s, I became passionate about business. Having obtained a State license to trade commodities, I started my financial career with CIBC Oppenheimer assisting the commodity private client group.
Less than 2 years after that, the top producer for Merrill Lynch commodity private client group asked me to join his group.
This was one of the most exciting fast paced times of my life. As a young woman who was able to nail down her career path so early in life, thereafter securing positions at Salomon Smith Barney, AG Edwards then in my own local Brooklyn neighborhood branches of HSBC Brokerage.
I was hired by HSBC to learn the bank side of client services, and to help branches which were currently failing to meet their goals. In less than a year, I was able to help fast track those branches to exceed their annual goals.
I pride myself in a special kind of infectious mindset which produces high levels of motivation, positivity, and an overall good energy throughout any organization which I am in charge.
Client satisfaction and truly understanding a person’s specific needs is not only a priority but it comes naturally to me.
After I married my husband and we had our first son, I gave up my career to put my full attention on nurturing our son.
We went onto have two more wonderful sons and became a big family in search of a larger home with more property, nature and wholesome environment.
Hello New Jersey.
It was here where I experienced the process of buying a home from the perspective of the buyer.
There were many needs throughout the process I noticed were ignored, overlooked and disregarded with regard to client services. I wanted the realtor to be just as urgent, passionate and ready to find our new home as we were.
The totally avoidable stress levels were through the roof.
I realized there were many things this realtor could have proactively done to prevent this stress. After we were settled in NJ for a few years, I had the desire to take real estate by storm with superior client service and positivity just as I had done as a financial advisor.
I didn’t only study which homes sell faster and why, but I decided to obtain a very unique designation which would creatively provide a huge advantage to my clients. Home Staging from the level of Feng Shui was one area I found to be of tremendous value. This focuses on creating the best first impression to the buyer and marketing a home’s best features.
I studied how advertising was shifting more into social media and obtained expert private training in this area. I knew this would multiply the exposure for my clients home sale to be marketed online using every single social media platform targeting qualified interested buyers.
I studied the art of negotiation reading many books including one from a former FBI agent hostage negotiator. What better way to learn negotiations than from someone who has lives at stake?
I looked at creative ways to prevent problems from things like home inspections as well as appraisals BEFORE they even have a chance to happen.
I studied which lenders offer the best rates and service.
I studied which title companies offer the best service, which attorneys offer the best representations, which home inspectors offer the highest level of knowledge and are able to interpret their reports in a simple clear comprehensive manner.
Once I received my Real Estate State License, I quickly became a top producing realtor and I am currently continuing to take on new clients with a high focus on my unique process and a very high focus on client satisfaction.
I wanted to be able to truly give my best to my clients by knowing all of the inventory and immediate response time which greatly minimizes the stress of buying and selling a home.
I quickly developed skills like pricing homes accurately comparing which homes money can buy in different neighboring towns in several different counties to satisfy a buyer’s wish list. I often broaden their scope to more options and locations or if they want to focus solely on one specific town, I hyper focus on that one area. There are so many intricate details to analyze such as location, busy roads, square footage, shape and size of lot, condition of home as well as size, updates. Demand for that area is so important to know as a realtor.
Living in a society based on consumerism, we are used to everything we buy being in perfect shape.
