TESTIMONIALS

Joanna is a gem. She did a comprehensive market analysis on the Brooklyn apartment I was eager to sell, recommended specific, cost-effective improvements and dissuaded me from wasting my money in others, and set a listing price that I initially thought was too high--but for which I received a number of offers. She is so enjoyable to work with, to say nothing of her extraordinary professionalism and dedication to her clients. I'm seriously going to miss her. Thank you, Joanna. It was a pleasure working with you! -Jeff H., Cobble Hill 

Joanna was recommended by our neighbors and we were so glad to have found her. She provided solid information regarding similar listings in our area, gave thoughtful suggestions on staging and even provided furniture and a rug for the staging, connected us with a great lawyer, and most importantly guided...

If you're looking for a real estate broker, look no further. Joanna is an exceptional broker, and so very pleasant to work with. She helped us purchase our first home, walked us through the entire process, was always very responsive, and very knowledgeable of the market. When you walk into an open...

Joanna was incredible. Always responsive and went the extra mile for me as the seller. Just one example: we moved out of our apt. the day before the “walk through” - a final look by the buyer to see if all was in order. I had left little important items in a overlooked drawer. Joanna contacted me...

Just hire her... she is the real estate broker of your dreams, seriously. Will stage your place including all the minor details, get you a great price, is always in a good mood, always responds right away. She works very hard but makes it all seem effortless. I think she is probably a rarity in the real estate world and in fact heard from another professional that she is a uniquely pleasant agent to work with –Dave M., Park Slope 

Joanna was the best to work with! Being out of state and needing to sell a coop apartment that had been inherited she was quick to respond to all my questions and concerns. And being unfamiliar with NY and it's myriad of regulations, especially in regard to selling a coop, there were many.  

Joanna swooped into our life when it was as crazy as could be and came through! She worked endlessly to turn our apartment around and put it on the market in less than a week, getting us an accepted offer in less than two. We were not available to do very much, and Joanna had our backs, and always...

I met Joanna a few days ago while looking for a rental apartment in Park Slope. I was looking for an apartment with certain features that made my search very complicated. Most brokers' reaction would have been (and actually had been up to that moment) to ask me to fill an application form and tell me... 

Joanna made the process of purchasing our apartment so smooth! Buying in a coop can be daunting, but Joanna had seen it all before and expertly helped us navigate the seemingly endless paperwork. She kept close contact with us, the lawyers and the building management and ensured that everyone was...

My real estate attorney referred me to Joanna to handle the sale of my Brooklyn condo. It was important for me to work with someone I could trust and easily communicate with because I relocated out of state a couple of years ago. From working with my rental tenant to preparing for the final...

One reason we hesitated in selling our apartment is that we had met many brokers (and worked with a few), and did not like any of them. More important--we had never found one we trusted. When it became clear it was time for us to sell, we interviewed a few brokers. We asked around and...

Joanna is an amazing realtor. She is extremely knowledgable and willing to roll up her sleeves to get the job done. I mean this literally as she actually helped us rake leaves the morning of an open house! I have never met anyone in the real estate industry who has gone above and beyond for a client in the way that Joanna has for us. She is lovely to work with and I recommend her highly. You will not be disappointed! -Chantelle B., Park Slope

My wife and I recently purchased a unit in a co-op building in Park Slope with Joanna as our broker.  We had been shopping around for brokers and even acting as our own for awhile and found most just didn't understand the market, were looking for a quick sell, or showed us what they wanted us to see not...

A few months ago I was sitting right here reading through all these fabulous reviews about Joanna and decided to give her a call. I'm happy to report that all previously written reviews about her are true. Joanna is as good as it gets. 
I couldn't have gone with a better agent for the sale of my...

What can I say - the results speak for themselves. Joanna had our condo in contract, over asking price, within two weeks of putting it on the market and we closed shortly thereafter. Working with Joanna was wonderful - she made the very stressful process of selling a property so much easier. 

Superior Real Estate Broker. Very professional and skilled in her trade. Very, very kind and always ready to listen to and cooperate with you. She really knows her stuff. Would definitely use her again and again in selling my house. FYI,if you also need slight fixing up of your house or coop to increase its salability, her husband is a contractor. He can recommend what is needed to raise the desirability of your property. -Richard P., Bay Ridge 

Joanna has been the most genuine, sweet, honest, and down to earth realtor we have ever met! She made the entire process so easy and stress free. She was always available via phone and responded promptly to any emails and texts. She really is one of a kind! As new homeowners we didn't know what we were doing and she really guided us through every step of the way! God bless Joanna and if you are looking for someone exceptional look no more...you found her! -Annie G., Sunset Park 

2016 was a tough year for me. My husband of 40 years had passed away. I had two houses and I was looking to downsize.  I had no experience in real estate. I took a chance and went on the Internet to find a broker. The first name I saw had five stars: Joanna Mayfield Marks. I took a chance and the gods...

Joanna is just an amazing real estate agent. Her knowledge and guidance made the process incredibly easy. She was always there to answer any of our questions or concerns. She worked very closely throughout the process with our lawyer, the members of the co-op board, the buyer and...

Joanna is fantastic. We spoke to three realtors and after meeting Joanna knew she was the right choice to sell our apartment in Park Slope. She was not only knowledgeable, but also truly excited about our place and about the opportunity to sell it. She got us a better price than any other realtor thought...

Joanna was great to work with.  We were very impressed with her knowledge of the market and negotiating skills.  She made herself available whenever we needed her and went above and beyond helping us prepare the house for market. 
We would gladly recommend her to our friends and...

We were blown away by Joanna's expertise and the level of service and care she brought to working with us on the sale of our apartment. She's friendly and thoughtful and is a true delight to work with. The day after we called her (a Sunday) she showed up at our apartment with detailed research on...

Joanna is an amazing person to have on your side when you're entering the jungle of NYC real estate. She is upbeat, energetic, informed, and, most importantly, patient and empathetic. She's made the tough parts of buying an apartment feel more bearable, and has been literally tireless in helping...

Joanna was an amazing realtor and a great help during our time trying to look for an apartment to live in for college. She was always available to talk to and seemed to know the answers to all the questions that I had throughout the process of looking for a suitable apartment. She went above and beyond in her efforts to find me the best apartment I could hope for. -Naveera, Flatbush 

As a seller's agent: often, many realtors will try to price real estate at the low end of the fair market price, so they can move product. Not Joanna! She will work diligently, with patience, and tremendous creativity to get the seller a price at a more competitive end of the market--an  unmatched combination of business...

My husband and I have worked with Joanna twice as our broker, and both experiences have been stellar. She was first recommended to us in 2012 when we were looking to leave our long-time Manhattan rental in order to purchase an apartment in Brooklyn. She could not have been more...

Joanna was our rock through a tumultuous and lengthy purchase of a co-op in Brooklyn. We were struck during our first meeting with her by what a friendly, warm, and knowledgable broker she is. As first time home buyers, we had many questions, doubts, and reservations about the process, but...

Joanna is a true professional. Her dedication and passion were incredibly valuable. The sale of our co-op was a complicated process and she handled it all with grace. Her insight and guidance ultimately led us to the final sale. Joanna is kind, patient and trustworthy. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell. -Ashley C., Brooklyn Heights 

Joanna has all of the qualities that an excellent broker has and more. She has been our realtor on a buy and a sell in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  What sets her apart is her very sincere and caring personality. She cares for people. Joanna gets the job done with efficiency and knowledge, and in the process, becomes a very good friend. You won't be disappointed. - Pat A., Park Slope 

Joanna recently helped us find a wonderful co-op in Sunset Park. We didn't really have an idea of how to find a realtor but after talking to Joanna at an open house we decided to give her a call.  She was very prompt in getting back to us to set up a meeting. She did a wonderful job finding listings that...

Joanna is both amazing at what she does and truly a pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly with me for months to help find and secure exactly what I was looking for. Only later did I discover that she did so in what is widely recognized as one of the most challenging real estate markets in the country.

Joanna was my ray of sunshine throughout a difficult and complicated process.  She guided me through my options at every step with total confidence and without any pressure.  She even coached me through my board submission and approval process.  Always pleasant, amazingly available...

Joanna went above and beyond to make sure each step of selling our apt was as easy on us as possible, from staging to closing. She especially put a lot of time and effort into helping to prepare our apt to look its best.  She was very easy to work with--friendly, understanding, reliable, and responsive. -Sarah T., Sunset Park 

I totally agree with the previous writer. Joanna has been supportive and very helpful since day one, and she truly is willing to go the extra mile to help the seller and/or the buyer. I'm in the process of selling my apartment, and there have been some minor problems, but Joanna has always, quickly...

My home searching situation was unusual in that I was living 3,000 miles away and needed to find the right person to really have an understanding ofwhat I needed in order to call a place 'home'. I communicated with several agents but when I connected with Joanna, I was confident that...

Joanna Mayfield Marks is, hands down, the best real estate agent in Brooklyn!!! My fiance and I recently went through close to 6 months of searching for a property, and after meeting dozens of real estate brokers, when we met Joanna, she was like a breath of fresh air! She was so open and friendly and...

Joanna is an AMAZING realtor. My experience with her was absolutely fantastic. She truly took the time to get to know me and what I was interested in/looking for. While we were house hunting, she was very patient and worked with me for over a year and half until I found what I wanted. 

Joanna is not only an amazing person but an incredible agent. We were fortunate to have found someone who was not only diligent, but also extremely kind. Joanna was our agent when we sold our home, a home we had enjoyed for 12 years. Knowing that, she put all her heart and time into making it just...

We just sold our 3 family house in Gowanus Brooklyn through Joanna and we would HIGHLY recommend her. We found her info after researching brokers with great reviews online and from start to finish she was a clear communicator and worked her butt off to get our house on the market and sold for the  best price.

Joanna brought her special brand of joyfulness to our family. She is an absolute pro who was willing to help us in every way and so often went out of her way. Her professional skills are stellar. The support she gave us made every step go smoothly — and she did it with a smile. Joanna made every step in the process easier. We were truly lucky to have her. She’s a true star. -Marianna N, Park Slope 

Joanna has helped us rent out two apartments in Brooklyn, NY. She is super professional, responsive, knowledgeable and easy to deal with. In both cases, she examined the apartment and gave suggestions to improve its marketability, marketed it online and through her office, helped us vet...

Joanna Mayfield Marks is a true professional who I would whole heartedly recommend to anyone. She’s currently handling both the sale of my apartment and helping me to buy a new home. Besides being extremely savvy, knowledgeable, efficient, and detail oriented, to me Joanna's most...

Joanna recently helped me to acquire my new home. As a first-time buyer, she helped me to overcome many unexpected hurdles. She nimbly guided me through the process, and patiently worked with me while I weighed the pros and cons of buying a building in an up-and-coming neighborhood vs buying into a...

What an incredible experience with Joanna. She made everything easy and efficient! We used her knowledge and experience to both buy and sell an apartment in Brooklyn. I would not have chosen anyone else! -Weston A., Park Slope

A superb, first-rate realtor experience! Joanna recently listed and sold our inherited co-op apartment in Park Slope. We live thousands of miles away and needed someone who would oversee making the apartment attractive, list at a favorable price,  and guide us through the New York and...

I'm writing this review from the private terrace of our Brooklyn co-op apartment. When we first started our apartment search, we reached out to Joanna after reading a NYT article quoting her about finding greenery in NYC. Looking at properties on our own, we were really discouraged with...

Saying that Joanna is amazing is not doing her justice. This woman is a super hero. Not only does she have 3 kids, is a top broker is Brooklyn, but she is nice and generous as well. I liked working with her so much I hope we can become friends! Here is how my experience went. First off, Joanna showed me...

Joanna is cheery, honest, and genuine, all while maintaining a persistent and comprehensive approach. I find her refreshing and unique in the rough and tumble world of NYC real estate. -Craig M., Columbia Street Waterfront 

When the first offer of our house fell through it was so depressing, but Joanna found a better offer within 48 hours. We were able to close in almost the same time frame. She was simply amazing. There is no other way to put it. Everything went smoothly, and we closed on time. She was very accessible and took care of every concern we had. In a market as tough as New York she is one of the best to work with. I would highly recommend Joanna. -Tom H, Park Slope 

Joanna was wonderful to work with, always on time, prepared with pertinent information and helpful advice. When we found a house that we liked, she went above and beyond to make the deal happen. Our sellers were difficult and nothing went as planned (not her fault), she ended up doing the work of two real...

Joanna has been such a pleasure to work with and so reassuring when our initial sale fell through in the middle of the coronavirus. She helped facilitate what would otherwise have been a cumbersome application process with our Coop Board and was always easy to get in touch with and ready with  answers.

Joanna is extremely dedicated and she shows great initiative. She went far and beyond supporting me and problem solving through the whole process. Joanna is resourceful and has a very positive attitude which helped a lot. She is incredibly knowledgeable and professional as well as ethical. I already...
