Joanna was instrumental in both the sale and purchase of our homes.  After many months of searching without success, we had resigned ourselves to remaining where we were.  Despite our disappointment, Joanna persisted in her search for the perfect home for us.  Her determination and commitment paid off, resulting in us finding a home that exceeded our expectations.  We’d truly found our dream home!  With that same professionalism and enthusiasm, Joanna then turned her attention to selling our existing home.  In only one week, she sold our home, and at the price we’d hoped for!  We highly recommend Joanna to everyone we know.  Thank you Joanna!

We would strongly recommend Joanna Schlansky as a realtor.  We found a house that we wanted to purchase but in order to proceed with the purchase of that new house we had a to sell our current house. We spoke with several realtors in Burlington and Joanna’s experience, knowledge of the area and professionalism was head and shoulders above the other we spoke to. Without a doubt we made the right decision. Joanna put our house on the market and it was sold within days. She did a wonderful job advising on the appropriate price to list our house and of marketing our house. Joanna also represented us on the on the purchase of our new house. To make a long story short both transactions turned out to be very difficult to complete on many levels. Following the guidance of Joanna we were able to complete both transactions with the results we wanted. Joanna went well above and beyond the call of duty and without Joanna’s help moving into our new would not be a reality today. We have already referred Joanna to other people and will continue to do so in the future. She is a fantastic realtor!

When my wife and I began our search for a new home our process started by randomly attending open houses to determine geographic areas that we liked and what we could afford.  During one of our visits we met Joanna Schlansky.  We told her upfront that we weren't prepared to purchase that house but were starting to look.  Even though we were not interested in that house, Joanna still spent the next hour and a half, between answering questions for visitors to the open house, speaking with us about all aspects of purchasing a home.  When we ultimately decided to purchase, we knew that Joanna was the agent we wanted to represent us and that ended up being a fantastic decision.


Joanna's best attributes throughout the process were her diligence and personality.  She was always able to be reached, via phone, text or e-mail, even when she went on vacation.  Throughout the entire home buying process, Joanna was able to keep the atmosphere light while also always giving exceptional advice.  The other attribute that I really appreciated about Joanna was that she was able to adjust to what we needed in an agent.  She clearly could have printed out lists of houses that she thought would be good for us and held our hands as she guided us through the process.  I'm sure she does that with some clients.  However, I very much wanted to be an active part of the search and negotiation so she did an exceptional job of allowing me to be me, just with her trained oversight.


Ultimately the home buying process had its expected ups and downs.  There were some professionals that we encountered who were very difficult to work with and some extremely unfortunate pit falls.  In the end, Joanna was by our side the entire time and made the process a whole lot easier.  Joanna continues to keep in touch with us and we would certainly recommend her to others and use her again in the future.

Joanna was recommended by a fellow professional that had

not met her, but her credentials spoke for themselves.  I needed

a real estate agent at a time when I was emotionally involved in

 losing both parents, and having to sell their home.  She not only

 took care of every little detail, she gave me the support and

 encouragement during a tough time.  I felt so confident that I knew

 I chose the best person to help me.  The day the house when on

 the market, she had a buyer. 


The story doesn't end there.  I then found myself looking for a new

home and Joanna was right on top of the search.  I not only found

a condo that I love, the seller was in need of a Realtor and guess

who he was so impressed with - yes, he hired her too!  Joanna

gives 110% of her time, but more importantly, she gets to know

her client personally and meets their every request and wish.


I will be forever grateful to for her hard work and dedication.

We are grateful to have had Joanna Schlansky as our real estate agent for both selling our home and finding a new home.  In what many have called a 'down market,'  Joanna helped us price our home correctly. Our result? We accepted an offer less than 2 weeks after placing our home on the market. Under a time-crunch to find a new home, Joanna arranged for and took us to multiple appointments to homes that fit our criteria, meeting our purchasing deadline.

In both selling our home and finding a new home, Joanna was our advocate.  Effectively listening to our needs, always going to bat for us, proactively keeping us informed every step of the way, and a great partner/sounding board in negotiating different steps in the process. She tirelessly kept the ball moving with all the other parties involved.  When she wasn't available "live" by phone (a rarity), she quickly returned our calls or emails. 

For these reasons and more, Joanna was an absolute pleasure to work with. She knows her stuff, is a consummate professional, and expertly uses her profession and talent to help her clients. Many times, she went above and beyond the call of duty.  She simplified what could be an incredibly stressful time.  It's like she's always thinking: how can I be of most service to my clients? And she DOES IT, consistently and with a genuine smile!

When buying or selling a home, you need to have Joanna Schlansky as your advocate. Contact her today.
