She thoroughly screens all prospective tenants and tends to the tenants needs immediately and manages all property maintenance, repairs and upkeep in an efficient and cost effective manor while also locating high quality tradesman for any work that may need to be done "
" Jo Ann is a terrific landlady. She does everything by the book because that's what's most fair for both her and her clients. She's a straight shooter who is fair but flexible within reason. She takes tremendous pride in her properties and wants to do right by her tenants. I've rented from her before and am delighted to be starting a new lease with her. "

" I rented one of Joann's properties for about 4 years and always had a great experience with her as the property owner and manager. She was quick to respond to maintenance issues (including when our garbage disposal went out on Thanksgiving Day!), and was easily available for any questions or concerns. I would highly recommended her as she really knows her stuff!. "
