Finding just the right home for my clients is my passion. I know what a difference it makes to live in a house versus living somewhere that feels like your very own home. Being a REALTOR® is my dream job and is something I have wanted to do for the last 45 years. Before becoming a REALTOR, one of my favorite activities was going to open houses, seeing different floor plans and getting unique decorating ideas. Now I enjoy finding a great home for my buyers and helping my sellers sell their home in the shortest amount of time for the best possible market price. I realize that my buyers and sellers are in a transition that can often be a very emotional and even fearful time. I want to make their experience less stressful by going the extra mile for them. Finding creative ideas and solutions for each transaction have earned me the wonderful testimonials my clients have written about me.

I first fell in love with Tucson in 1972 when I stepped off the plane and it immediately felt like home. I took classes in Real Estate at the U of A, but kept postponing becoming a realtor for various reasons. After graduating with a Bachelor’s in Liberal Arts from University of Arizona, I moved back to the suburbs of Chicago where I worked in Employee Relations until my daughter was born. Twenty years later, I went on to pursue a teaching degree in Albuquerque, NM where I lived for thirty years. It feels great to finally be back to Tucson, where I belong, doing what I was meant to do, being a REALTOR.

In addition to taking great pride in being a REALTOR, my other interests include tennis, pottery, painting, and being "Grammy" to my four grandchildren. Purchasing a home in SaddleBrooke was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It is my mission to help you find a house that will feel like your forever home. Call me today, I am ready to help!

Client Reviews

Joanne was very thorough and always did what she said she would do. She was a pleasure to work with!!

Cheryl B

Joanne was always positive no matter how dire things seemed. This positive attitude , ability to go get answers expeditiously and come up with options was instrumental in closing our purchase. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone wishing to sell their home or to any buyers. Honest and sincere.

Joanne Wells is a conscientious and caring realtor. She always puts her clients first and is more about finding the perfect home for her clients than making a sale. She listens well and can narrow down a search quickly. I strongly recommend Joanne to everyone looking for someone who cares about finding the perfect home.

Joanne Wells was a wonderful agent. She showed us many homes, and she kept sending us listings that she thought we might like. We came back many times and over the course of looking at homes, we developed a real friendship with her. Her enthusiasm for her job and her positive attitude were impressive. She kept telling us not to settle, but to wait and the right house would come along. And she was right. She found us"the house" with a view on the golf course for a fair price. She even put us up at her home when we closed on one home and were bidding on the one we bought.

Joanne is a consummate professional. Her market research is impeccable and her negotiating skills are impressive. I’ve made a seamless transition to my next chapter in life - which could not have happened without Joanne’s patience and professionalism.

Louise Brightwell/Dan Brightwell

Joanne Wells is a one in a million real estate agent. She far surpassed our expectations, especially in her knowledge of the housing market and the Tucson community. Once we met her, she focused on learning what we wanted and then offered us a list of beautiful homes tailored our needs. Being new to Arizona, we were nervous and had much to learn, but Joanne immediately made us feel at home. Her personable, conscientious nature is like a calming breeze on hot, dry day, and we will be forever grateful to her for finding our dream home.

Glenn W. & Ava G. Turner

Joanne exceeded all our expectations. She was thorough, professional and because of her intensive research, she was very instramental in helping us make the correct real estate decisions. We would highly recommend her as someone dedicated to helping the customer make knowledgeable decisions.

Dee & Marshall Saunders

Joanne went above and beyond for us, we couldn’t be happier with her! If the selling agent (Maren) for Long Realty was more like Joanne, we would have had an excellent overall experience. We felt there were times that Maren was condescending and unprofessional in here communications with us which made the process even more stressful then it needed to be.
