Professional, knowledgeable, kind and incredibly thorough agent:
I worked with Joan on the purchase of my home in Pass-a-Grille Florida. From the first conversation we had, Joan was so very thorough and knowledgeable about the area and the market. She gave me such a good starting point in understanding the market and seemed to know every house and it’s history off the top of her head, she’s an expert. During the closing process, Joan gave solid advice in order to make it a quick and easy process without any hiccups. She was highly communicative and I always felt supported and at ease that she had everything covered. Nothing left to chance, she thinks of everything and prepares you for each step so there were never any surprises. On a personal note, Joan is really wonderful to work with. Professional, with a great sense of humor. We really enjoyed working with her and if the time comes to buy and sell again, she will be the person I will call. I highly recommend Joan. She’s truly a wonderful agent and an amazing person.

Joan Gives It Her All
Joan is fabulous. She knows her market and works tirelessly to get your house sold. Joan will help you in whatever way she can and only has her client’s best interest at heart. Joan is very honest. She is very patient and understanding of her client’s circumstances and works to make them comfortable with the marketing, showing and selling process. You couldn’t make a better choice of a real estate agent.
-Trish Kelley (seller) on 21 Jun 2020
Friendly dedicated real estate broker.
I had twice the opportunity to work with Joan Walker. She sold my condo in north Tampa and although the market was very competitive ,she succeeded because of her dedication and perseverance. Perhaps something to do with her Irish blood! She also helped me with the purchase of our new apartment in St Petersburg especially when we encountered some problems with the title company. I greatly recommend Joan Walker to anybody looking for a friendly dedicated real estate broker and if I make another real estate transaction, I will certainly call my friend, Joan Walker.
Experienced a fine relationship with our realtor before, during and after the sale.
Even thou Joan was not our buyer agent during the process she was extremely helpful in getting the deal completed. Joan was very resourceful in obtaining concessions from the seller making the move a more pleasant transaction. She followed every step of the process to make sure it was a smooth , no hassle move. I would definitely be very happy to work with her in the future.
-Frank Spalitto (buyer) on 19 Jun 2020
I knew Joan through my dad and the neighborhood. She is a well respected member of the Pass A Grille community. She was my realtor and became a dear friend. It was one of the toughest times in my life and Joan coached me through the sale and grief at the same time. I knew nothing about any of the financial aspects of what was about to happen. Joan lead me carefully step by step patiently, with understanding, until we had a buyer and throughout the end of the sale. I cannot tell you how much that meant then and to this day. I have referred many people to her to this day. She is calm and knowledgeable. She gets the job done and keeps the client relaxed and confident at the same time! We have remained friends. I think that says a lot.
-Erin McCabe (seller) on 19 Jun 2020
Great job regarding sale of condo
Joan is dedicated and tenacious. Did a great job selling this high end condo. Would not hesitate to use Joan again on either buy or sell side.
-Jeffrey Gerrish (seller) on 19 Jun 2020
Joan was great to work with even though we were difficult clients. We were selling the family home which was very hard and emotional for us. Joan was very kind and considerate. Our house was in an expensive zip code but needed lots of updating so it was worth less than we thought. Joan helped us work through accepting that. In the end, we were happy with what we received. She found us a snug condo with a gorgeous view of the bay and much less upkeep needed. We are very happy here. Thank you, Joan for your professionalism and very hard work selling our home! We would recommend her to anyone who needs their home sold.
-Spencer And Alice Lucas (seller) on 20 Jun 2020
Very personable and helpful
Joan was and is very knowledgeable about the Real Estate market in the area we were interested in.
Was able to answer all our questions accurately with no surprises. We were very picky on what we were interested in and Joan stayed with us all the way through the purchase process. We would use Joan again without hesitation.

Now that we are back home and settled again, I would like to thank you for all your help. You have been persistent and professional, although very friendly, in both the buying of our apartment in Dolphin cay but especially in the sale of our condo in Tampa.It took a while but it was independent of your will and I also thank you for fixing the problems created by the title company.It was a pleasure to know you and working with you. Best regards.

I can’t possibly say enough about Joan! She found me the perfect location on the beach. Joan listens to your needs and she never lets you down. She made buying my Florida condo effortless especially since I lived out of state at the time. You simply need Joan to help you sell or buy your next place to call home!

Thanks for all the hard work involved in selling this old house and dealing with the emotional wreck who was selling it! We owe you more than we can pay! You truly went over and above what we’ve ever had from a realtor before! Thank you!
-Alice Lucas, May 7, 2017
Hey Joan, we are another big step ahead to getting to move to our Beach House! Just remember you found me that creepy foreclosure that is now transformed into a beautiful home where we will enjoy an active and fun life! Our move is gonna happen! Thank you!

Brenda and Joan, Thank you.

My wife & I have had the pleasure of working with Joan for the past 15 years. Joan has represented us in many transactions, as both buyers & sellers. We recommend Joan without reservation. No one will work harder for you than Joan.
-Craig & Suzie Kolb, 3/6/2015
Joan Walker is an outstanding agent. She listed my condo on St. Pete Beach in November, 2014. We successfully closed on January 14, 2015. In order to do this, she worked diligently with the renter, a single lady (I understand that she did not drive) who had been in my condo approximately ten years and did not want to move. Joan patiently worked to find her a suitable place to rent, helped her move and even helped decorate her new apartment.
She cleaned, oversaw some minor repairs, and went above and beyond my expectations. Being past 80 years of age and a widow, her actions was a great help to me. She is not afraid of work. I recommend her highly.
-Alliene B. McInturff, 3/5/2015
Joan helped us rent out our condo before she handled the sale. We live out of state and she did a great job of communicating with us and guiding us through the whole selling process (our first time). I would highly recommend Joan to anyone, her knowledge of the local market and her willingness to go the extra mile were very much appreciated.
Joan is a very hard working lady. She helped us find home with in our price range. Me and my family very thankful to her. She is the best knowledgeable and very helpful person.
– Ks_dulku, 02/22/2015
Joan is a great agent. She is working hard to get my home sold. She contacts us regularly and keeps up informed about the activity in our community. We would recommend her,highly.
Joan is passionate and knowledgeable about her properties and is committed to preserving the historic nature of her community. She was very helpful both before and after we purchased our home and we would highly recommend her services.
Joan sold my father’s condominium after my mother died. Her kindness and comfort helped to put my father at ease, and she made the entire transaction seamless. Our family greatly appreciates her compassion and efforts.
Joan Walker helped us find the perfect home! We were incredibly picky and there’s no question in my mind that we proved to be her most challenging clients. Nonetheless, she was professional, patient and always encouraging, even when it took months of searching, Joan was there working hard for us every step of the way. She worked tirelessly and kept me positive even when I was frustrated to the point of tears by the houses that were within our price range. She would hug me and tell me that the right place was out there and we would find it together! All her hard work, faith and dedication paid off when she opened the door that led us into our ideal home. Thanks to Joan we’ve been incredibly happy there for the past 9 years and when the time comes to start looking for our next property there’s no one else in the world I’d even consider working with besides Joan Walker! She is the BEST!!!
Joan works tirelessly networking to find the right buyer for the right property! She has been at this for a long time and knows her demographics.
As a real estate developer I always enjoyed it when Joan brought buyers for my properties. Her buyers, as opposed to many other Realtors, were always informed and knowledgeable of our product and our competitors product.
-Billy Moore, 02/16/2015

Joan is very personable and knows the area very well. From her experience she knows what needs to be addressed in order to get the sale done. I had complete trust in her abilities and she was able to get our sale closed after numerous bank related delays.
