At the ripe old age of 19, JoAnna set out to begin her real estate career, originally focusing on property management. Enjoying the relationships acquired and opportunities that the industry offered, she decided to advance her career by achieving her Florida Real Estate License and later obtained her Florida Broker’s License. After assisting in growing other management companies, JoAnna decided she would rather grow and earn for her family and family’s future. She felt strongly that she could provide better quality service to her clients outside of a constricting corporate environment. Sharing mutual concerns, she teamed up with her friend and fellow colleague, Tracy Jackson, and joined Keller Williams Realty Gulf Coast to focus on sales. Subsequently, they opened their own property management company, Hometown Properties of the Gulf Coast providing property management services. In turn, they have created a true full-service real estate solution for their clients. JoAnna has served in leadership roles for various organizations such as NARPM (National Association of Residential Property Managers), having served the last decade on the Pensacola Chapter Board as Director, Secretary, President Elect, and two terms as President. She also served on a NARPM National committee, assisting in convention planning. JoAnna previously served on the Community Relations Committee of the Pensacola Association of Realtors.
