Joanie Yust is excited about selling real estate in Texas! She proudly claims Galveston as her birthplace (BOI/Born on the Island)and traveled to the Piney Woods and Stephen F. Austin University for college. After fourteen years in Houston real estate, Joanie welcomes repeat clients, personal referrals and property virgins! "I've listed and sold in Memorial, Spring Branch, Katy, The Woodlands, the Inner-Loop and even Lake Livingston. However, if you are moving to another Texas city, I have personal Realtor contacts throughout the state of Texas and will gladly connect you."
Teaching school for 15 years jump-started Joanie's real estate career. "I am passionate about education and will take great care to review and explain all documents involved in the transaction. Keeping the lines of communication open is essential. Education plus communication equals a smooth transaction."
Knowledge and patience, coupled with a contagious sense of humor, regularly turns Joanie’s clients into life-long friends.
Joanie’s commitment, market knowledge and determination has won her several awards including “Rookie of the Year” in 2000 and multi-million dollar producing status since.
