Joanne Steele

Joanne has always had a passion for real estate, the personal interactions and the negotiations, the architecture and décor and the pride people take in their homes.

Joanne grew up in Snellville, GA and attended Georgia State University, where she earned a degree in Real Estate. After graduating college, she worked in property asset management and then as a mortgage loan officer for several years. In 2014, she transitioned to real estate sales (her real love!). She loves meeting and getting to know her clients from all different experiences and backgrounds.

Joanne worked in real estate in Atlanta until moving to Athens in 2020. She and her husband (a University of Georgia graduate) had long been in love with Athens and the sense of community here, and had always wanted their kids to grow up here.

They enjoy going to local restaurants, going to shows, shopping local shops and all of the parks. Joanne enjoys anything outdoors, traveling, and cheering on her kids at their many different events. Joanne lives on the West Side of Athens with her husband, Jonathan, and their two kids, Matthew and Kate.

Helped to make the often stressful process of buying a new home a breeze.
During our search for a new home, we found Joe’s knowledge of the Athens real estate market to be great. He listened to our goals and wants, then helped us refine our search to find a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. His insight into areas such as location, market trends, and home design allowed us to look past the marketing hype to find the “needle in the haystack” that best fit our needs and wants.

Dealt with everything in a positive and constructive manner.
Joanne is an outstanding realtor. In addition to being knowledgeable and thorough, she dealt with everything in a positive and constructive manner. Moving from out of state was made easy because of her energy, contacts and willingness to help with a wide variety of challenges. I strongly recommend Joanne. She�s the best!!
Thanks for all of your help Joanne!
Joanne was a pleasure to work with when. I have known her on the residential side, but when I was looking for a commercial property she was able to pull together the resources and help me locate a fitting space and assist in executing a good lease. She was always reachable, always available to show me a property, and as kind and courteous as you will ever meet. Thanks for all of your help Joanne!
What an amazing experience!
Wow...what an amazing experience we had with Joanne. She took us step by step through the selling and buying process. Took amazing photos of our home and sold our house with multiple offers within eight days of being on the market and for full asking price. Joanne was always available anytime I had a question or concern and soothed my nerves through the process. She also helped us find our dream home and the buying process was so easy. Joanne has a great eye for detail and is absolutely one of the beat in her field. I highly recommend her and will differently use her for our next selling and buying experience. Thank you Joanne! You are the best.
Joanne made it easy for me while tackling the difficult stuff herself.
Selling a home can be overwhelming, but from day one Joanne made it easy for me while tackling the difficult stuff herself. From the day we put the house on the market, she had it under contract in 24 hours, at listing price!! Never did I think it would be that easy. Drama in everyday life can step in, but Joanne keeps it light and breezy. She also helped me buy a home that had the worlds worst seller! But a perfect house! To this day I'm certain she never told me all she had to bare to get that house for me. I highly recommend her to be everyone's agent and friend!
She is now our go to realtor for my entire family
My husband and I moved back to Georgia in 2014, after almost 8 years in Florida. We were very specific about the area we wanted to be in as well and the house and property we were looking for. We wanted a move-in ready home on a large lot (at least an acre if not more) which is not an easy find. She was VERY patient with us. Her knowledge of the area we were looking in was exceptional and it made us very comfortable trusting her input and feedback. She found us our dream home, a beautiful move-in ready home on 2 acres in our most desired neighborhood. On top of finding us our dream home, her real estate knowledge and background got us our house for an amazing price!!! She made our home buying experience beyond enjoyable. She is now our go to realtor for my entire family. I would recommend Joanne to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
We have used Joanne for years.
We have used Joanne for years and have used her to buy and sell many properties. Joanne has always gone out of her way to accommodate our crazy schedules as well as drive hours out of her way to do so.
