Ask Joie Gowan what she values most about real estate and you’ll discover it’s the people she works with. “I have the utmost respect for people who are buying and selling homes and I feel that each and every one of them deserves my full, undivided attention.”
That is why, when you work with Joie, you won’t be passed on to anyone else. You’ll have a full-time realtor who is with you from beginning to end. “I keep my business small,” says Joie, “so that I can personally take care of each client’s needs.”
With more than two decades of experience, this Seattle native is one of the city’s most well-respected realtors, and probably one of the most modest. It’s unlikely she’ll tell you she’s been ranked by Trendgraphix, the industry’s leading research site, as one of the top 50 realtors in Seattle, or that homebuyers place her year after year on Seattle Magazine’s list of Five Star real estate agents. Nor will she tell you how often she’s quoted in the media, sought out by local and national press for her insightful perceptions.
Joie’s clients are almost completely referral-based and many call on her multiple times for their real estate needs. Her loyal following speaks to her commitment to stable, long-term real estate solutions and relationships. “From day one,” she says, “I built my practice on two basic principles: first-rate customer service and staying ahead of our ever-changing inventory. These two principles, coupled with my natural respect for people and their needs, have made my work extremely rewarding.”
Joie serves as Assistant Manager of Windermere’s Sandpoint office, advising other agents on contract and marketing strategies. She also serves on the board of the Windermere Foundation, which distributes over two million dollars annually to non-profit agencies dedicated to helping homeless and low-income families.
