What Joie's clients are saying

Dan & Kristine Wright


I am writing to say thank you for helping us sell our house in Bryant. In recalling the work you did from beginning to end you did everything I would expect a top notch professional to do. And then you did more. You were professional, dedicated, and patient when necessary. And you hustled and applied the right pressure when necessary. You did a lot of things for us that would have been very difficult for us to do from abroad. Even when you went on vacation you had good coverage from your colleague who was also very professional and "on top of things" for us. For all of this we are grateful.

We also thank you for the work you did in helping us buy our house in Windermere. I realize we were not the easiest buyers to work with. But you did a great job selling us as home owners and getting us the home we wanted.

Kristine and I would like to give you something as a token of our appreciation. Please let us know what your favorite restaurant is. Also, if you ever need a reference or testimonial please do not hesitate to ask as we're happy to provide one for you.

Thank you again.

Dan & Kristine

"Joie Gowan has strong expertise in the real estate market, as well as years of experience, valuable contacts, and unmatchable perceptiveness and instincts. When you combine the depth of her expertise with the way she works tirelessly for her clients, it becomes clear as to why she is one of the most respected professionals in her field. I have known Joie for more than 20 years and she has guided our family through multiple real estate transactions, both selling and purchasing. Because of Joie's hard work, careful planning and thoughtful advice, we have never encountered a problem and have been extraordinarily happy with each successful and positive transaction. Joie researches the current trends in the market and is extremely knowledgeable of the industry and local neighborhoods. Her marketing is cutting-edge, creative and successful. She is absolutely a top-knotch real estate professional and it is an easy task to provide my unqualified endorsement of her."

Jim and Mandee Gerlitz

"Joie recently helped us sell our home in this very difficult market and throughout the process we had absolute confidence that we could not have been in better hands. From the beginning, Joie entered into this potential sale with energy. We had open dialogue about what changes we should make in our home before putting it on the market; she gave us her expertise along the way, but respected our opinion in optional matters too. The marketing strategy she used was well-thought out, and the brochures, website, and mailings were just beautiful, and drew much response until our house sold. We are extremely thankful for the competence and perserverance she demonstrated thoughout this process and have recommended her to others so that they too can benefit from her diligence, professionalism and thoughtful ways."

"I have had the good fortune to have Joie as my real estate agent in several residential transactions in both the Washington Park and Laurelhurst areas of Seattle. She has always exceeded my expectations with excellent, knowledgeable and personable service. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs real estate advice or service in Seattle."

Howard Cheng

"I hired Joie to help with the sale of my parent's home in Seattle. Since I was in SF most of the time, we needed someone trustworthy, hands-on and knowledgeable about the market. Joie fit the bill and exceeded our highest expectations. She was able to help us navigate through a very tough real estate market (summer 2009) with excellent results. Joie provided great advice on marketing/pricing, pre-sale remodeling priorities and closing issues. Above all, she really committed herself to the project and made it as much of a priority for her as it was for us -- and through the process of working with Joie, she became a trusted friend. I would absolutely work with Joie again without any hesitation."

Shelly Capeloto

"Joie is a very professional and personable real estate agent. She has extensive knowledge about the real estate market in Seattle and is up to date on current trends in the housing market. Her contacts are invaluable."

Sarah Potts

"I really enjoyed working with Joie. She would find countless houses for us to visit and after a long day she was still super friendly and really easy to get along with. She considered all the aspects of a home that were important to me and helped me find the perfect house! She was very patient also working with my parents as they wanted to only see the houses I was very interested in. It was my first time buying a house and she made what could have been a stressful situation fun and easy to understand. I have recommended Joie to others and will continue to do so. When I'm ready for my next house I'll use her again!"
