Clients are saying:

"Working with Joanna was great! Never have I had such a pleasant experience in buying a home. Joanna was on top of everything from start to finish. I will recommend Joanna to anyone that is looking to purchase, or sell their home. THANK YOU SO MUCH JOANNA !!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"Given the way everything went with this house, we want to say that you were awesome and we couldn't have asked for more. You are the best!"

"Joanna Koperski is a SUPER STAR real estate broker! We relocated from California due to a new job opportunity, but had limited ability to personally tour homes in the area. After only a handful of phone conversations and emails, Joanna zero'd in on what we were looking for and we soon had a short list of properties which all seemed great online. Here's what set her apart. She personally toured AND filmed each property on our short list and sent us the videos that same day along with her personal opinions. We managed to narrow down the list even further so that when we finally flew into town to meet her for the first time, she took us to see the best of the best. We made an offer on the home we eventually bought that very same day. Joanna is just fantastic, one of the most pleasant and hard working real estate brokers I've ever worked with, and I highly recommend her!”"

"Joanna Koperski and Edyta Tabor are an exceptional team. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased. As someone who was buying a home for the first time and having a "type A" personality, they made the process easy as pie and stress-free (as stress-free as it can be..) My husband and I both work full time and they were very accommodating. We were ALWAYS in the know when it came to each step of the buying and selling process -- they dealt with at least 10 text messages from me alone daily. They handled all the negotiations, keeping communication open with all legal/mortgage lenders/other realtors, etc - we really just had to show up & answer a few questions here and there. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget to open e-mails, and Edyta was right there to text me all necessary information (including where to be for closings!). Would we recommend them both? Absolutely. 100%. To anyone - anytime - anywhere."

"Dear Joanna, This seems the perfect time to thank you for everything you have done for us over the last several years. From the moment we received your note card from you with a huge “sold” over the photo of our home (which we have saved), you have been an amazing professional, and considerate representative for our property and our family. Thank you for being our friend and confidant throughout our adventure. You have helped us to take care of our home “from a distance”, and through the thick and thin of a difficult economic environment. We totally respect what you have done for us and appreciate all of your kindness as well. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!"
