"We loved working with Joanne, she was so patient with us as we tried to find a home in a crazy market and she is incredibly thorough. As a buyer's agent, she did a great job researching properties we were interested in and was always available for showings when we needed her. As a seller's agent she showed us comps and worked with us to build a strategy before listing. She sold our house over list in just a couple days and we couldn't be happier."

Perdomo-Cohen - October 26, 2021

Joanne was by far one of the best realtors we have worked with. We were negotiating on a house in this crazy market and she was incredibly knowledgeable, thorough and super responsive. We would not hesitate to recommend her.

"Absolutely cannot say enough about Joanne as a broker, as an expert in real estate negotiations, as someone who knows the Westchester market down to the neighborhood, and as a really terrific human being. We decided to engage the services of Joanne when we met her by happenstance. It was love at first showing, and she didn't even have to convince us she was the right broker for us. She showed up to every appointment on time, was kind and courteous beyond measure, and is a real expert on how to negotiate the best price on behalf of her clients. She relentlessly pursued all options and considerations that were in our best interest and everything she presented and represented to us was fair, accurate, and done with great integrity. We can't say enough about our experience with Joanne and we highly recommend her without any hesitation."

We first met Joanne four years ago when we purchased our home in Pound Ridge. 

We bought a contemporary home that we knew would be a project - we had a vision. We also knew that this wouldn’t be our forever home.

As life and our careers progressed we decided we need something larger - a place we could raise a family.

We contacted Joanne to set everything in motion. We listed our home in Pound Ridge and began the hunt. 

Then Covid hit. Joanne remained persistent and confident that we would sell our home and we did just that. Through virtual showings via Zoom and me providing guided tours we found our buyers. The price we listed at and the price we sold at were in line with our expectations and what data Joanne provided.

We found our hopefully forever home in Goldens Bridge - fingers crossed that my wife doesn’t make us move again.

Joanne helped orchestrate the terms of the deal - she was firm when she needed to be and understanding to our needs and wants. The pricing and negotiation was in line with the data she provided and we were happy with our final negotiated price point and terms. 

Joanne was always available via a phone call, text message or email. She was on point and got information quickly when needed. She was always available to go the extra step.

I do thank you for everything you did for us!

I would without question use Joanne again and confidently recommend her –

Thank you - the Romer family. Goldens Bridge 2020

Romer - July 28, 2020

Joanne was fantastic to work with. She went above and beyond to sell our home. She was everything you would want in an agent. She demonstrated excellent negotiation skills, was always responsive, consistently advocated for us, and was great at coordinating efforts in order to get us to the finish line. She had great expert matter expertise and delivered on everything she promised. Joanne comes highly recommended in our house!

Harty - August 6, 2021

"Joanne is the best real estate agent ever!! Where to begin?! I can't say enough good things. She helped me sell my coop and buy a new townhouse. With selling, she knew exactly how to get my place to sell quickly - how to stage, how to advertise, how to take great photos, etc. My coop was on the market for less than a week before I had multiple offers over the listing price. With buying, she knew exactly what to do with negotiating for a good price, getting things fixed, and how to keep things moving along. She recommended fantastic mortgage brokers and lawyers for us to work with. She is supremely organized and very kind. I am the kind of person who tends to worry about everything, but with Joanne the process was so so so much less stressful because I knew that she was on top of everything. Seriously - if you are buying or selling, Joanne is the agent you need to have! I would recommend her to everyone."

"Joanne was amazing to work with. She was always super responsive, within a few minutes. Her working style was easy and yet very specific, listening to for what we wanted in a house and providing keen insights that helped us discover what we really were looking for. We looked at so many houses with her and yet she was always present and attentive. I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an agent."

"I was extremely fortunate to be connected with Joanne. After an earlier experience had made me wary of the process of finding my first home, Joanne ensured that I had an ally and advocate from beginning to end. She kept the big picture in mind and was a great communicator. I was especially grateful for her responsiveness and her tenacity on following up when concerns arose. She was a key asset in assisting me with my first home purchase and her candor and good sense were invaluable."

Joanne. We are moving from our 105 year old home of 29 years as I write you. The difference between the professionalism and service provided by you and your team was remarkable as compared to what we’ve suffered through here in NJ.  Tina is on top of everything. We never feel we’re pulling her across the finish line.  We feel lucky we hooked up with you and Tina and would recommend you to anyone looking for help with real estate in NY or CT. We hope to be as happy in our new house as our old. Thanks. Sandra

"Joanne is the consummate professional. She is extremely knowledgeable of the market, judicious in her assessment of appropriate negotiation tactics, always available, and an outgoing and kind person. We could not have been successful in our search for a house without her guidance. The best broker a buyer could ever hope to find."

Braverman - June 23, 2020


"After living in our current home for 45 years, we knew it was time to downsize but were intimidated and overwhelmed at the prospect. Joanne Padawer was a delight to work with and made the whole process significantly less anxiety-provoking. She was detailed oriented and presented material in a way that was direct and understandable. It seemed as though she was waiting next to her phone to answer any and all questions that arose throughout the process and always had an excellent sense of humor. She and her team are so knowledgeable and efficient. I would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking to buy or sell their home--she is a super star!"

Joanne worked with my family to sell my house and help us find the perfect new home. She worked tirelessly on both sides of the transaction. We could not have sold our home without her, she went above and beyond to make the deal happen. I highly recommend her- she represented us exceptionally well  and was instrumental in helping us find our new home. Downsizing can be tricky but Joanne helped make it easy. Whether you are buying or selling Joanne is the best !

Molloy - May 2, 2019

"Joanne helped us find and purchase our first home.  Her knowledge of all aspects of the real estate market and the house-buying process allowed us to quickly find and close on our dream home. She was a step ahead the whole way through the process, and we knew we could always count on her professionalism, kind demeanor, attentiveness and sharp wit! She had a great team of inspectors and other professionals in the field assembled, and was even able to recommend a lender that offered the most competitive rate of everyone we contacted.  She really understood our unique needs in terms of a home, and once we found that hoe she worked tirelessly to ensure we got it.  Joanne is truly a top-notch professional in her field, and we cannot recommend her highly enough!"

Erika & Jason -Hopewell Junction - February 2, 2018

We can't thank you enough for all that you've done for us.  Your hard work and tireless vetting of every single house on the market in Pound Ridge and Bedford resulted in us finding our wonderful new (antique !) home.  We so appreciated your insight and input on the hones we saw - it was invaluable.  And of course, our intelligent, organized and ultra-thorough marketing of our hoe made the move possible. Handling both the purchase and the sale at the same time was no small talk given the hiccups along the way but you did it with grace and efficiency under pressure! I could go on and on, but suffice it to say Eric and I have worked with a number of real estate professionals over the last 20 years and we both agree - you're hands down the best.

"My husband and I were looking at houses for our family (with young kids) for over a year, and Joanne was infinitely patient, pleasant, and responsive.  She is insightful and well-informed about neighborhoods, market trends, and price points.  She also has a nice eye for design and as a result, can offer creative ideas to spruce up spaces on both the inside and outside.  She was not aggressive (as I have found other real estate professionals can be), and came off as genuine in wanting to find us the right place.

We really appreciated her patience, as we were motivated to move but had the luxury of time to find the right place.  Fast forward a year plus later, and we just closed on the home we have been waiting to find.  We are very excited to start this new chapter and can't thank Joanne enough for her time, effort, and guidance.  We wholeheartedly recommend her!"

Joanne was a wonderful guide as we searched for our new home. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and patient. We very much enjoyed working with her. She helped us find our new home and we have already recommended her to others.



C. Gabbard - May 4, 2018

Joanne is a top-notch broker that is experienced, knowledgeable, and results-oriented. Joanne goes above and beyond the ordinary course for her clients to help them achieve their goals. We hired Joanne to sell our home and were incredibly impressed with her from start to finish. It was because of  Joanne's meticulous legwork that we had multiple offers on our home only 3 days after it was listed! Highly recommend- she's an absolute gem.


HHart ESQ - May 15, 2017

Joanne...what would we do without you?!?! It has been such a pleasure working with you and I have every intention of continuing the friendship.  The process was easy large in part to your assistance and diligence along the way.  I can not thank you enough for stepping in the way that you did.  You have been a god-send.

Carla & Charles- Bedford - February 13, 2016

"Surely she was instrumental to help us purchase our home.  I doubt we would have finalized without her help.  She was always on the top of the situation, and very attentive with all the details.  Very knowledgeable of the area.  I will recommend Joanne in the heartbeat."

Celin & Anonello G -Eastchester - January 12, 2018

Thank you so much for all of your efforts thus far in getting us to an expeditious and terrific result -you have been tremendous and we greatly appreciate it

Hi BD,
I just wanted to reach out to you and let you know it was a real pleasure working with Joanne. She was always responsive, well informed throughout the whole process and just very easy to work with. I look forward to doing more business with her in the future. You have a great broker on your team.

"Joanne has been nothing short of incredible from the onset. In a previous life, I ran two major real estate companies located in New York City - and can assure you (although, I doubt I'm telling you anything you don't already know), agents like Joanne are few and far between. She has been accommodating in her scheduling, thorough in her research, aggressive but charismatic on our behalf, and a joy to work with. She has made my husband and I feel as though we have a partner in this endeavor, and allowed us peace of mind that she has her ear to the ground so that we don't need to. She is proactive in her approach, she has provided sound guidance and she has earned our trust seamlessly."

JF ESQ - July 28, 2016

I HIGHLY recommend working Joanne Padawer. When my husband and I decided to move from the Queens, we were clueless about which neighborhood would be best for us and what style of home would best accommodate our needs. Joanne spent hours guiding us across Westchester county looking at homes in Croton, Pound Ridge, Bedford, Mount Kisco, Ossining, and Briarcliff Manor until we found our home. Throughout the entire process, all the way through the closing, Joanne's sense of humor and attention to detail proved invaluable.


Tschampel - April 19, 2016

Joanne is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!! I met Joanne when I called her about one of her listings. She made me feel so comfortable in our conversation. Joanne ended up showing me another house which eventually became my dream home. During the entire process, she explained everything that I needed to know and never made me feel inexperienced, even though I had such limited knowledge about everything. Once I found that home that I wanted, she knew just what to do...there were 7 offers on my house and I got it!! Joanne knew exactly what to say and when to push (and just how hard). She was extremely professional, listened carefully to what I was looking for, and was easy to reach at all hours of the day/night (we even needed to communicate through the Thanksgiving holiday). Joanne is smart, confident, knowledgable, and caring. I would recommend her in a she's giving me advice on how best to renovate : )

frannymez-Valhalla 2017 - January 30, 2017

Joanne demonstrated her many excellent professional and personal skills that all contributed to the successful marketing and sale of my home.  As my listing agent, we communicated well and worked together as team members to prepare the house for sale.  As an experienced resourceful agent, she offered many encouraging and beneficial suggestions to prepare for the house listing.  She is very knowledgeable and informative regarding the real estate market in the area.  After listing the house, Joanne's attention to detail, her timing and follow up during the selling process assured that the sales transaction went smoothly for all parties.  Her expertise and genuine demeanor certainly made this a very positive experience.  I couldn't have asked for anything better!

"Joanne is skilled in her area.  She has many contacts and great referrals.  The 1st home she showed me I purchased.  She is/was always available and prompt.  She was a pleasure to work with."

Valerie M -Mt Kisco - January 31, 2018

My wife and I recently worked with Joanne & Kathy on our purchase of a home in Pound Ridge NY. They were both very knowledgeable of the area and of the process involved with a home purchase. They were professional and attentive throughout the entire process. They answered any questions we had in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend them in the future and would not hesitate to use them in the future.


Romer - May 24, 2016

You were truly exceptional and always went above and beyond, and your proactivity was key in keeping us as calm as we could be during a stressful time of selling, buying and, for me, being pregnant. I still say to Jason every day, "I love our house & can't believe how blessed we are."

"Great Agent! very quick responding to all my questions, very knowledgeable, she went above and beyond for me and my family helping us every step of the way. If you are looking to purchase your dream home I recommend Joane.  She is very honest, dedicated and business-oriented who will get the job done.  I will use her for every one of my purchases.  Thank you so much!"

Richard Rojas & Maritza Rosario - March 7, 2018

We  recently moved to Pound Ridge from South Africa, and were extremely fortunate to have Joanne as our realtor. Joanne helped us find a stunning home to rent. She did that effortlessly, taking time to understand our needs. But her support didn’t stop there—she went beyond the call of duty to help us expatriates to understand the lay of the land living in Pound Ridge, from connecting utilities to recreational possibilities. She is highly professional, organized, client-focused to a fault, and charming to boot. We have never had a better realtor anywhere.

Christine Lippai and Nik Sekhran - January 27, 2015

Louisa & ilan - February 14, 2016

Due to life changes I needed to find a home to rent quickly.  Joanne went above and beyond in quickly gathering listings and setting up showings.  The effort she put forth finding me a rental was equal to any realtor looking to find a multi-million dollar house for their client.  She surpassed my expectations in every way.
