Joan Berger understands the importance of building trust in a relationship. A home transition, as with any major change, may be emotionally challenging. As a result, patience and understanding are important. Joan believes that providing information, guidance, and reassurance during this process helps put buyers and sellers at ease.
Joan, who began her successful real estate career over two decades ago, is an accomplished listener, asking questions in an effort to know each client's expectations. Known by her clients for her calm, tenacious, and sensitive manner, she is also an excellent communicator. "I love working with clients, again and again. I have worked with one family eight times!" she says.
Before answering the call to become a Realtor, Joan was a Medical Assistant and Office Manager for 15+ years developing all the skills that have made her such a successful Realtor. As she says, "If you can help sick and worried patients and run a doctor's office, while also being a Mom, you learn to listen while you multi-task and develop your talents for patience, firmness and diplomacy."
Still, Joan, a Multi-Million Dollar Producer, is continually developing her real estate education with specialized instruction and has earned the professional designations of Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI®) and e-Pro, both emphasizing her commitment to excellent customer service.
Joan is also an active and participating citizen of the community in which she lives, serves, shows, and sells serving as a Commissioner for Sugar Land Planning and Zoning Commission and also served on Zoning Board of Adjustments and Parks and Recreation Board.
In addition, she is a Member of the Houston, Texas, and National Associations of Realtors®, where she served as a Director At Large on the 2012 & 2013 Board of the Houston Association of Realtors, and on the 2012-2014 Texas Association Board of Directors. She is also a member of the Women's Council of Realtors,
"I have enjoyed serving my fellow Realtors as a TREPAC trustee for the past 5 years, working for protection of private property rights and the real estate profession, and have been honored to serve as a Director for the Houston Association of Realtors and Texas Association of Realtors."
"But," she says, "my newest 'position' is that of grandmother of the best boy, Oliver Berger, and this is as good as it gets!"
