Joanna Schlansky - Showcase Of Homes, Realtors

Joanna Schlansky, CRS SRES, CBR

Joanna Schlansky’s devotion to her clients is unparalleled. Whether they’re first-time buyers, sellers who are downsizing or relocating, builders or investors, she commits to them fully by tailoring her process and solutions to best fit their needs. As a top-producing Realtor, Schlansky specializes in properties within the Burlington, Bedford, Billerica, Lexington, Chelmsford and surrounding towns around the 128/93 hub.

Throughout Schlansky’s 18-year career in real estate, she’s relied on the lessons learned from her prior positions: the facilitation, mediation, and negotiation skills she acquired at a consulting firm; the communication skills accrued through her work at Deloitte & Touche; and the wealth of knowledge she developed working as an immigration and real estate paralegal in New York City. Schlansky has a degree in Occupational Therapy and spent time working as an OT before making the switch to real estate in order to spend more time at home with her then-newborn daughter. "My passion is to help people and I wanted to channel that passion - being a real estate agent could accomplish that,” she says.

Even though the current real estate landscape can be a challenge, Schlansky beats every obstacle that she approaches thanks to her innovation and perseverance. Just recently, she listed a property that had attracted 200 buyers to the open house which resulted in 33 offers. "Needless to say, the seller was extremely happy with the outcome and equated it to the my customized marketing strategy for their home,” she says.

Schlansky was named one of the Top 10 Best Realtors in New England in 2016–2017 by the American Institute for Real Estate Professionals. She is also a Certified Buyers Representative, a Senior Real Estate Specialist and a Certified Residential Specialist, a prestigious designation given to only 3 percent of Realtors in the country.

Schlansky is loyal to her past clients and the neighborhoods in which she work. She volunteers her time for local charities, serves as a committee member for People Helping People and works in the local food pantry.

Schlansky also makes it a priority to donate time and money to local organizations like the little league baseball team and the police and fire departments. Every year, she rents a snow cone truck and gives away free snow cones to the kids in her town. "I am a strong believer in giving back to my community,” she says.

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!
