About Me

A native of Asheville, Joanna started her Real Estate career in 2005 after returning home from living in New York City & Los Angeles, California. Joanna never stopped considering Asheville her home and always knew she would return. "When you love a town as much as I love Asheville, it's easy to share that with people who are looking for a home." She left a job in the film industry and upon her return to Asheville, Joanna was excited to start her new career as a Realtor.

Joanna was Rookie of the Year in 2005 and Agent of the Year in 2007. She is often a top producer. She was one of the top 100 Realtors in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018, 2020 & 2021. Joanna is very detailed oriented and a great communicator - she returns phone calls as soon as humanly possible. She feels that much of her success is due to the fact that she is a native of Asheville and loves to "show off" her hometown!

Joanna isn't constrained when it comes to her personal accomplishments either. She holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Vocal Performance from the School of Music at UNC-Greensboro. She lived in New York City for 17 years and while there, sang with the New York City Opera Company and performed on Broadway and in National Tours of CATS, SHOWBOAT, THE MUSIC OF ANDREW LLOYD WEBBER IN CONCERT, and others. She appeared with Sarah Brightman at the London Palladium and she also has the distinct honor of having been one of Josh Groban's vocal coaches while living in Los Angeles.

When not selling real estate, she enjoys being active in her community. Joanna served 6 years as a member of the Board of Directors for the Asheville Lyric Opera Company. She is also very active at Central United Methodist Church as a choir member, soloist, was the director of the children's musicals, and a former member of the Board of Trustees. Family is important to Joanna as are her dogs Rudy and Jake. To top it off, she also finds time to give private voice lessons, coaches participants of the Distinguished Young Woman program and loves decorating and reading.

One of Joanna's greatest loves is travel. Whether it is New York for a Broadway show or on Safari in Africa, she is at home anywhere in the world. And if travel has taught her anything, it's that Asheville is one of the greatest places on earth and you CAN come home again!

Joanna was recommended by a friend and agent that we had worked with on a RE purchase in Florida. She did not disappoint as she was always staying in contact with us and helping us through the process. The lack of inventory available was an obstacle, so locating prospective homes to view was difficult and we only saw two properties before making an offer on the second one. Once we targeted the property we wanted, that was really where her expertise kicked in as she helped line up the necessary inspections and stayed in communication with the seller's agent. They were not particularly communicative, so she had to be persistent. There were difficulties along the way, primarily due to weather issues and the Seller's move out which naturally affected the closing date. Joanna stayed in touch with us and always responded to our questions, etc. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area.

It was a pleasure to work with Joanna Beck! She was flexible about meetings and showings and was always so prompt in responding to us. My husband and I were apprehensive about entering the current housing market in Asheville, but wanted to make the move. With Joanna’s guidance, suggestions and solid advice we gained the confidence to find our perfect property. She knows Asheville and the surrounding areas very well, but more importantly she listens to and gets to know her clients well and your preferences even better. Joanna helped us so much by getting information and a professional we needed in order to make our final decision. We never felt pressured or rushed and always felt that Joanna wanted the same result that we did. After a very smooth process, we are the owners of a property that we love! My husband and I are so glad that we chose to work with Joanna and we think that anyone else who works with her will feel the same.

Buying or selling a home is a stressful endeavor. Selling the home of an aging parent as the Power of Attorney is that much more taxing. I was very fortunate to have Joanna Beck as my agent. She listened to my concerns prior to listing the house, gave me excellent advice on the market, and suggested a reasonable sale price. She navigated me through the inspection process and helped me decide what issues needed to be addressed and what could be left to the prospective buyers. Once an offer was made, she helped me with the negotiations and committing to a fair offer. Prior to closing, there was some give and take between the buyer and myself that Joanna helped me work through. When we arrived at the closing date, everything went as smooth as silk. Joanna is a wonderful, caring, and honest person. One advantage that she has is that she grew up in this area and has extensive knowledge of the area's properties, schools, and attractions. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home or property.

Joanna was fantastic. She listened intently to learn what our "must-haves" and "must not have". She was always proactive in locating properties in this competitive market. During and after placing offer to purchase, she ensured that my spouse and I were comfortable with decisions that needed to be made and after those decisions were made. Would certainly use Joanna again!

Joanna does not take a one-size fits all approach. She customizes and gets to know her clients, and how they want to spend their time, to find the perfect house for them. Joanna knows everyone in town and is well respected within the community which is crucial when dealing with the speed & ferocity of the current housing market. She is trustworthy, credible and dependable, but most of all - she’s authentic. I am grateful that we worked with Joanna to buy our first home. We will definitely work with her in the future.

Love Joanna! Professional, smart, and fun. Would not hesitate to recommend to others. Joanna represented me 11 years ago as buyers agent, her knowledge of the North Asheville area was critical as we were moving here from California. She was so good at negotiating and such a pleasure to work with that when I needed to sell my mom’s house 11 years later, she was my number one choice for my agent. Joanna Beck did just as good a job as a seller’s agent as she did as a buyer’s agent. I would not hesitate to ask her to represent me again and will recommend to others.

We knew right away that Joanna was going to be a great agent from our first conversation. I told her that the most important thing to us was closing on the contract closing date. All of the recommendations she made for inspections and loans were great to work with and timely. We depended heavily on her involvement because we were buying from out of town and unable to travel due to the pandemic. Thanks to Joanna's hard work, every step of the process went smoothly. Before we knew it, we owned a house in Asheville!

Joanna's overall performance exceeded our high expectations. We had set a high bar for the marketing plan for the property. We wanted a state-of-the-art, 3-D online walk-through video along with a whole list of other marketing requirements. Joanna immediately got to work and executed each aspect of our marketing plan with excellent follow through. She is professional and knowledgeable in all facets of the business and a good negotiation strategist. As a result of her marketing efforts we had approximately 30 home tours in the first week and the property was under contract in 7 days at 99% of list price---and I might say at a record $330/sf for the neighborhood.

It wasn't a fluke. For the second time, Joanna helped us with the sell of family residence. She did such a great job the first time, we thought we would "try" her again. Well, she is just as good the second time as the first. Within a week of putting the house on the market, we had a successful buyer. And within a month, we had all the paperwork done and the process completed. Throughout the entire sell, Joanna was there helping us with ideas, house preparation, timely updates, and words of encouragement. She thought of things that we didn't, eliminating those unforeseen surprises. We could not have asked for a better agent and friend. If I ever need these services again, Joanna will be the first and only agent I will think of.

As first time homebuyers we came into this process with little knowledge. Our needs and wants were precise, the timetable was open-ended, and we were patient in finding the right home. We looked at around 10 properties over the course of two and a half years, and Joanna Beck was an excellent resource every step of the way. Once under contract, Joanna promptly lined up all the inspections and paperwork needed to move the purchase forward. We can not stress enough how important this was in making our experience a positive one. Joanna made it easy to juggle the homebuying process with everything else in our daily lives. And finally, Joanna was a consummate professional during the contract negotiations. She was detailed and firm with her interactions with the seller and the seller's agent. The credits, repairs, and concessions made by the seller were fair, and we feel that we made a smart purchase. We would recommend Joanna Beck to anyone looking to purchase a home in Western North Carolina.

I researched many companies in the area and sent out a letter with questions to several of the companies. I received a response from Elaine Ingle Vice President and Managing Broker and we spoke on the phone. She followed up and recommended Joanna Beck. I had appointments set up, one with Joanna, as well as other listing agents. We met Joanna and after our initial meeting we hired her immediately. She was just what we were looking for and there was no need to continue our search. Joanna hit the ground running, fast and efficient. She put together a stellar marketing package and led the way from beginning to end. She navigated us through the entire transaction and demonstrated a deep knowledge of her profession. Joanna is exceptional! Organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional in every aspect of the transaction from listing to closing. She always communicated with us in a timely manner which is especially important to us. She is so easy to work with and is a real pleasure to be around. To sum up: Joanna Beck is a rare find. She is a true professional with an exceptional personality, and is great to work with. Joanna did an outstanding job for us. I would hire her again!

Joanna was my realtor when I moved to the Asheville area in 2013. She was very knowledgeable about the area, showed me a lot of different properties, and helped make the closing go very smoothly. Joanna recommended a price above what I had expected, and I got three offers on day one for that amount or more! Her advice on Escrow versus Due Diligence money was very helpful, and she was great at managing the negotiations between the competing buyers. Joanna really went the extra mile for me. I had moved to my new home out of state prior to closing, and when the buyer's closing attorney was reluctant to wire the proceeds of the house sale into my bank account, she picked the check up from them and went to my bank and deposited it for me! It was a huge help to me as I didn't have a new bank lined up in Connecticut, since we were in the middle of the corona virus pandemic shutdown. It was wonderful to have an agent I could trust so thoroughly!

Along with being very professional and detail-oriented from other testimonials I had read about Joanna, she is also family for us. Because we have known her most of our lives and seeing the impact she has made in this community with her work effort, choosing Joanna as our broker was a no-brainer. Joanna knows all the ins and outs, from start to finish. We were never uncomfortable with anything she was doing on our behalf. We had 2 offers for our property before we could get the information out to the public. We were happy with the price we were offered and therefore decided not to delay in the selling. It was a fast and smooth process on our part. Outside of issues on the buyers' part, we were thrilled with how everything turned out.

Joanna is an excellent agent and person inside and out. She was my landlord on a rental property that was sold by the owner before our contract was up so ever since then she has been by our side helping myself and my son a safe place to live. She never gave up on us and continually sent me recommendations of listings that was in our interest. She never hesitated when a home became available that we wanted to see. She helped me make sure I had everything I needed and always had us in the best interest in the purchase. The process was so easy and efficient. Communication was there. I would recommend her to anyone. I wish all agents were like her, she is such an inspiration and just a great person over all. She feels like family. Joanna is a person that you look up to. No matter what kind of day she is having, she always took her time out of her way to make sure things were done properly and fairly. She is very professional, polite, very well spoken and always communicated with me with everything that was going on in our home search and closing. I wish everyone could have this experience. When I speak to Joanna, I am not talking to just a agent, but I am talking to family. I can have a bad day and I can speak to her and I feel so much better.

I selected Joanna based on a previous experience with her- 10 years ago, when she helped with the purchase of the home I now was selling. Selling a home can be a stressful time and one filled with emotion. With her experience, knowledge and resourcefulness, Joanna handled the sale of my home efficiently and effectively. Improvements that I made, based on her recommendations, were definitely a factor in obtaining the price I wanted for my home. In addition, she was constantly looking for ways to promote the home. As I was already out of state when the home sold, she acted as my advocate - checking on details, following up with the other entities to ensure the closing went smoothly and on time. I recommend her for anyone buying or selling a home in the Asheville area. I have now worked with Joanna on 2 occasions and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the Asheville area. She is experienced, knowledgeable, resourceful and always professional. Her advice for selling my home was realistic and reasonable, and I believe that the projects I undertook, on her advice, helped me to obtain the price I needed to get for my home. She answered my questions, was available to me at all times, and acted as my advocate during the entire process. Joanna truly is a role model for all realtors.

We were looking for a person with drive, ideas, plus follow through. Joanna was ready to move right away and did so. She set a path, corroborated on it with us, got agreement and then it was all ahead full steam. She demanded we follow through as well. When we did so, she became even more positive. Selling a home works both ways as the process is a joint activity. Because she understands the market she was invaluable as a guide for us in the process. She kept us informed and responded back to questions quickly. We asked for and expected her to tell us what she really thought without any fluff. As we started to form a contract this was important because she always knew what we were thinking and we had the same position with her. We knew what to expect from her and she understood what we expected in return. That is a rare combination because it creates trust and open conversation. Joanna was the best and most professional agent we have ever worked with.

Joanna Beck was referred to us from our builder in Union Mills, NC. We live in Illinois and had no face to face contact with Joanna, yet we felt like we working with a member of our family. Joanna was so thorough and communicated so precisely every step of the way. Her comments and professional guidance was spot on and she always had our best interests at heart. I was amazed at the extra effort Joanna did personally to get the home sold. We were accepting bids almost immediately, and sold it in record time. We were amazed at the selling price & never thought it would sell for the price it did. Joanna is confident yet realistic and kept us informed so well, we felt like we were there!! I hope to finally meet her soon to give her a big hug. Joanna Beck is the best!! Joanna Beck had our home listed sooo well, the showing times were booked pretty solid. We had so many interested buyers which resulted in several offers. It was amazing! Joanna handled everything for us as the owner was institutionalized and we the family live out of the state. It was so comforting knowing Joanna was handling everything! When it sold, I actually called Joanna the next day to make sure it actually sold & I was not dreaming. It all happened so smoothly I couldn't believe it!! Thank you Joanna!! Joanna Beck always answered our calls/texts/emails quickly. Even on a Sunday before she went to pick-up her Granddaughter to go to church, Joanna took the time to call us to answer our questions and give information!! Highly recommended!! Joanna Beck is a knowledgeable conscientious agent who works hard for her clients to get the job done right!! Joanna even set me up with the Hendersonville, NC office when I was in town to get forms signed and faxed to her as I did not have internet service at the house anymore!! Joanna Beck truly goes above & beyond the call!! I could NOT have asked for or hoped for a better realtor than Joanna Beck.

Joanna Beck is an extremely knowledgable real estate agent. Immediately after signing a contract we had to return home to Texas. Except for a brief visit to set up interior work,most of our dealings with Joanna were email, texting, and phone calls. She coordinated mortgage documents, inspections, as well as advising us on future service needs. I highly reccomend her...she is a true professional.

Joanna was a delight! She is a great communicator and made our relocation very stress free. We are located in the mid-west and having her on site to handle all the due diligence matters was crucial for our ability to make a good decision and feel that we were well represented in the critical stages of the real estate purchase. We will certainly recommend Joanna to friends and family because of her engaging personality, professionalism and attention to details.

Joanna was always open and available to us. We asked more questions than I am sure any other home buyers. She never failed to offer good advise or find out the requested answer. She should be the standard for all agents at Beverly Hanks and those in the business! She knows her craft, area and the home market. Listen carefully to her counsel and you will come out a winner.

Joanna, met all her commitments to us and we felt at ease with her professional and courteous approach. She provided useful advice throughout the selling process and it was clear that she had our best interests in mind.

Joanna is fantastic. She has an intimate knowledge of the market and always gave great insights. She has an extensive network that really helped in multiple situations. Extremely responsive, attention to detail, and just overall very friendly and great to work with. Our youngest loved Joanna so much that she said that Joanna reminded her of her grandmother. What a feat that is!! Joanna has sold a home for us and we are currently in the final stages of buying a home. We have already recommended Joanna when asked if we knew any realtors. If Joanna advises you to do something in your home to help sell it, do it because she is right. We will be using her again and again.

Quite frankly JOANNA BECK is my cousin but family relation aside, Joanna knows what she is doing and her track record reflects that. I had no qualms that I was in good hands. I think the fact my home sold after being on the market less than a month speaks strongly to her knowledge, good ideas and guidance in the process. It took awhile to convince me but I finally listened to her about some rooms that needed to be painted and some specific staging she thought best to advertise. After all was said and done the pictures of my home were outstanding; so much so that I called her and told her "I want to buy that house!" With that said, I also went online to look at some homes in my development that had been on the market (another agency) for some time. It further validated just HOW GOOD she really is. Remember the commercial years ago "When EF Hutton talks people listen"? -- I can say 100% when Joanna makes suggestions you should listen -- she knows what she's doing.

Mark and I were extremely satisfied selling and buying a home with Joanna Beck. We found a home we were interested in. She showed it to us the day I called her. We quickly put our home on the market and had it under contract in less than a week and were then able to purchase our new home.

Joanna is not only an excellent agent, she is also a generous, kind-hearted person, and an amazing trooper. She stayed with us through many years of failed house-searches as our first buyer continued to default on us just before closing. It took many years before we were finally able to purchase a house. By that time, we had the luxury of not having to sell our existing home first before purchasing our next home. We took our time to fix renovate our old home to make it shine. We wanted to be proud of the listing. I think our extra effort and investment combined with Joanna's skill and connections made us a great team. Joanna just had to be our listing agent. We have plenty of great friends who also happen to be great real estate agents, but nobody stuck with us throughout the years the way Joanna did. We were happy to return this loyalty by giving her our listing. Joanna is not only loyal, but she also really knows her stuff, she is quite tech-savvy (very important in this day and age,) and is great about follow-up. Plus, she is a good soul, very talented, and gives back to the community in truly meaningful ways. In short, Joanna is a gem. Thanks for all that you do, Joanna!

Joanna Beck was my Realtor and so much more. She was understanding about the difficulties I had in putting the house on the market and allowed me to express my sadness in giving up this place I loved so dearly. I trusted her to get the best price for my house and also to put folks into the home who would cherish it as much as I. Her dedication truly helped me to trust that the buyers were not getting just any house but, rather, a home. She added her special touch by letting me know what attracted the buyers to my home and that was reassuring to me as the feature was also valued by me. I would recommend Joanna without reservation to others in the market for a special place in these mountains. This is also Joanna's home and she has a rich family heritage here. It shows! Thank you, Joanna, my friend.

Joanna is an absolute gem and a great addition to the staff at the North Asheville Beverly Hanks Office. Joanna hung in there with us for YEARS as we conducted an arduous house search. Over the years, our search became increasingly difficult as our budget diminished. But we finally found the right property and made our move at the earliest possible moment. Joanna helped make that happen. If we hadn't put our bid in when we did, we would have certainly lost the property. When our bid was pitted against those of other potential buyers - (via an interview process) - Joanna represented us in the best possible light. She helped us win the bid. The going got rough through the incredible haze and inevitable pitfalls of the short sale process. Nevertheless, Joanna continued to facilitate excellent communication between the closing attorney's office, the seller's agency, and the short sale law office. She also kept up the cheerleading, which we most desperately needed on the most frustrating of days. Short Sales are not for the faint of heart. Nor are long-term house searches! THANK YOU, JOANNA BECK!!

Joanna was recommended by a friend and agent that we had worked with on a RE purchase in Florida. She did not disappoint as she was always staying in contact with us and helping us through the process. The lack of inventory available was an obstacle, so locating prospective homes to view was difficult and we only saw two properties before making an offer on the second one. Once we targeted the property we wanted, that was really where her expertise kicked in as she helped line up the necessary inspections and stayed in communication with the seller's agent. They were not particularly communicative, so she had to be persistent. There were difficulties along the way, primarily due to weather issues and the Seller's move out which naturally affected the closing date. Joanna stayed in touch with us and always responded to our questions, etc. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area.

Buying or selling a home is a stressful endeavor. Selling the home of an aging parent as the Power of Attorney is that much more taxing. I was very fortunate to have Joanna Beck as my agent. She listened to my concerns prior to listing the house, gave me excellent advice on the market, and suggested a reasonable sale price. She navigated me through the inspection process and helped me decide what issues needed to be addressed and what could be left to the prospective buyers. Once an offer was made, she helped me with the negotiations and committing to a fair offer. Prior to closing, there was some give and take between the buyer and myself that Joanna helped me work through. When we arrived at the closing date, everything went as smooth as silk. Joanna is a wonderful, caring, and honest person. One advantage that she has is that she grew up in this area and has extensive knowledge of the area's properties, schools, and attractions. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell their home or property.

Joanna's overall performance exceeded our high expectations. We had set a high bar for the marketing plan for the property. We wanted a state-of-the-art, 3-D online walk-through video along with a whole list of other marketing requirements. Joanna immediately got to work and executed each aspect of our marketing plan with excellent follow through. She is professional and knowledgeable in all facets of the business and a good negotiation strategist. As a result of her marketing efforts we had approximately 30 home tours in the first week and the property was under contract in 7 days at 99% of list price---and I might say at a record $330/sf for the neighborhood.

Joanna did everything wonderful. Everything from pictures to showing my home to selling it was professional, quick and easy. Sold to first buyer. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. Thank you for making the sell of my home a great experience without any stress. I sure do appreciate everything you did.

It wasn't a fluke. For the second time, Joanna helped us with the sell of family residence. She did such a great job the first time, we thought we would "try" her again. Well, she is just as good the second time as the first. Within a week of putting the house on the market, we had a successful buyer. And within a month, we had all the paperwork done and the process completed. Throughout the entire sell, Joanna was there helping us with ideas, house preparation, timely updates, and words of encouragement. She thought of things that we didn't, eliminating those unforeseen surprises. We could not have asked for a better agent and friend. If I ever need these services again, Joanna will be the first and only agent I will think of.

As first time homebuyers we came into this process with little knowledge. Our needs and wants were precise, the timetable was open-ended, and we were patient in finding the right home. We looked at around 10 properties over the course of two and a half years, and Joanna Beck was an excellent resource every step of the way. Once under contract, Joanna promptly lined up all the inspections and paperwork needed to move the purchase forward. We can not stress enough how important this was in making our experience a positive one. Joanna made it easy to juggle the homebuying process with everything else in our daily lives. And finally, Joanna was a consummate professional during the contract negotiations. She was detailed and firm with her interactions with the seller and the seller's agent. The credits, repairs, and concessions made by the seller were fair, and we feel that we made a smart purchase. We would recommend Joanna Beck to anyone looking to purchase a home in Western North Carolina.

I researched many companies in the area and sent out a letter with questions to several of the companies. I received a response from Elaine Ingle Vice President and Managing Broker and we spoke on the phone. She followed up and recommended Joanna Beck. I had appointments set up, one with Joanna, as well as other listing agents. We met Joanna and after our initial meeting we hired her immediately. She was just what we were looking for and there was no need to continue our search. Joanna hit the ground running, fast and efficient. She put together a stellar marketing package and led the way from beginning to end. She navigated us through the entire transaction and demonstrated a deep knowledge of her profession. Joanna is exceptional! Organized, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional in every aspect of the transaction from listing to closing. She always communicated with us in a timely manner which is especially important to us. She is so easy to work with and is a real pleasure to be around. To sum up: Joanna Beck is a rare find. She is a true professional with an exceptional personality, and is great to work with. Joanna did an outstanding job for us. I would hire her again!

Joanna was my realtor when I moved to the Asheville area in 2013. She was very knowledgeable about the area, showed me a lot of different properties, and helped make the closing go very smoothly. Joanna recommended a price above what I had expected, and I got three offers on day one for that amount or more! Her advice on Escrow versus Due Diligence money was very helpful, and she was great at managing the negotiations between the competing buyers. Joanna really went the extra mile for me. I had moved to my new home out of state prior to closing, and when the buyer's closing attorney was reluctant to wire the proceeds of the house sale into my bank account, she picked the check up from them and went to my bank and deposited it for me! It was a huge help to me as I didn't have a new bank lined up in Connecticut, since we were in the middle of the corona virus pandemic shutdown. It was wonderful to have an agent I could trust so thoroughly!

Along with being very professional and detail-oriented from other testimonials I had read about Joanna, she is also family for us. Because we have known her most of our lives and seeing the impact she has made in this community with her work effort, choosing Joanna as our broker was a no-brainer. Joanna knows all the ins and outs, from start to finish. We were never uncomfortable with anything she was doing on our behalf. We had 2 offers for our property before we could get the information out to the public. We were happy with the price we were offered and therefore decided not to delay in the selling. It was a fast and smooth process on our part. Outside of issues on the buyers' part, we were thrilled with how everything turned out.

Joanna is an excellent agent and person inside and out. She was my landlord on a rental property that was sold by the owner before our contract was up so ever since then she has been by our side helping myself and my son a safe place to live. She never gave up on us and continually sent me recommendations of listings that was in our interest. She never hesitated when a home became available that we wanted to see. She helped me make sure I had everything I needed and always had us in the best interest in the purchase. The process was so easy and efficient. Communication was there. I would recommend her to anyone. I wish all agents were like her, she is such an inspiration and just a great person over all. She feels like family. Joanna is a person that you look up to. No matter what kind of day she is having, she always took her time out of her way to make sure things were done properly and fairly. She is very professional, polite, very well spoken and always communicated with me with everything that was going on in our home search and closing. I wish everyone could have this experience. When I speak to Joanna, I am not talking to just a agent, but I am talking to family. I can have a bad day and I can speak to her and I feel so much better.

I selected Joanna based on a previous experience with her- 10 years ago, when she helped with the purchase of the home I now was selling. Selling a home can be a stressful time and one filled with emotion. With her experience, knowledge and resourcefulness, Joanna handled the sale of my home efficiently and effectively. Improvements that I made, based on her recommendations, were definitely a factor in obtaining the price I wanted for my home. In addition, she was constantly looking for ways to promote the home. As I was already out of state when the home sold, she acted as my advocate - checking on details, following up with the other entities to ensure the closing went smoothly and on time. I recommend her for anyone buying or selling a home in the Asheville area. I have now worked with Joanna on 2 occasions and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home in the Asheville area. She is experienced, knowledgeable, resourceful and always professional. Her advice for selling my home was realistic and reasonable, and I believe that the projects I undertook, on her advice, helped me to obtain the price I needed to get for my home. She answered my questions, was available to me at all times, and acted as my advocate during the entire process. Joanna truly is a role model for all realtors.

We were looking for a person with drive, ideas, plus follow through. Joanna was ready to move right away and did so. She set a path, corroborated on it with us, got agreement and then it was all ahead full steam. She demanded we follow through as well. When we did so, she became even more positive. Selling a home works both ways as the process is a joint activity. Because she understands the market she was invaluable as a guide for us in the process. She kept us informed and responded back to questions quickly. We asked for and expected her to tell us what she really thought without any fluff. As we started to form a contract this was important because she always knew what we were thinking and we had the same position with her. We knew what to expect from her and she understood what we expected in return. That is a rare combination because it creates trust and open conversation. Joanna was the best and most professional agent we have ever worked with.

Joanna Beck was referred to us from our builder in Union Mills, NC. We live in Illinois and had no face to face contact with Joanna, yet we felt like we working with a member of our family. Joanna was so thorough and communicated so precisely every step of the way. Her comments and professional guidance was spot on and she always had our best interests at heart. I was amazed at the extra effort Joanna did personally to get the home sold. We were accepting bids almost immediately, and sold it in record time. We were amazed at the selling price & never thought it would sell for the price it did. Joanna is confident yet realistic and kept us informed so well, we felt like we were there!! I hope to finally meet her soon to give her a big hug. Joanna Beck is the best!! Joanna Beck had our home listed sooo well, the showing times were booked pretty solid. We had so many interested buyers which resulted in several offers. It was amazing! Joanna handled everything for us as the owner was institutionalized and we the family live out of the state. It was so comforting knowing Joanna was handling everything! When it sold, I actually called Joanna the next day to make sure it actually sold & I was not dreaming. It all happened so smoothly I couldn't believe it!! Thank you Joanna!! Joanna Beck always answered our calls/texts/emails quickly. Even on a Sunday before she went to pick-up her Granddaughter to go to church, Joanna took the time to call us to answer our questions and give information!! Highly recommended!! Joanna Beck is a knowledgeable conscientious agent who works hard for her clients to get the job done right!! Joanna even set me up with the Hendersonville, NC office when I was in town to get forms signed and faxed to her as I did not have internet service at the house anymore!! Joanna Beck truly goes above & beyond the call!! I could NOT have asked for or hoped for a better realtor than Joanna Beck.

Quite frankly JOANNA BECK is my cousin but family relation aside, Joanna knows what she is doing and her track record reflects that. I had no qualms that I was in good hands. I think the fact my home sold after being on the market less than a month speaks strongly to her knowledge, good ideas and guidance in the process. It took awhile to convince me but I finally listened to her about some rooms that needed to be painted and some specific staging she thought best to advertise. After all was said and done the pictures of my home were outstanding; so much so that I called her and told her "I want to buy that house!" With that said, I also went online to look at some homes in my development that had been on the market (another agency) for some time. It further validated just HOW GOOD she really is. Remember the commercial years ago "When EF Hutton talks people listen"? -- I can say 100% when Joanna makes suggestions you should listen -- she knows what she's doing.

Joanna is not only an excellent agent, she is also a generous, kind-hearted person, and an amazing trooper. She stayed with us through many years of failed house-searches as our first buyer continued to default on us just before closing. It took many years before we were finally able to purchase a house. By that time, we had the luxury of not having to sell our existing home first before purchasing our next home. We took our time to fix renovate our old home to make it shine. We wanted to be proud of the listing. I think our extra effort and investment combined with Joanna's skill and connections made us a great team. Joanna just had to be our listing agent. We have plenty of great friends who also happen to be great real estate agents, but nobody stuck with us throughout the years the way Joanna did. We were happy to return this loyalty by giving her our listing. Joanna is not only loyal, but she also really knows her stuff, she is quite tech-savvy (very important in this day and age,) and is great about follow-up. Plus, she is a good soul, very talented, and gives back to the community in truly meaningful ways. In short, Joanna is a gem. Thanks for all that you do, Joanna!

Her knowledge of Asheville was an important factor in helping us find the right neighborhood for us. She was always available to answer our questions and ready to show us all the houses available that met our needs. Joanna made me feel like I was her only client.

Joanna did a fantastic job of honoring our attachment to the house that we needed to sell. Leaving Asheville was a huge emotional challenge for us and Joanna was supportive, professional and patient throughout the entire process.

Joanna Beck was an excellent agent throughout the purchasing process. She was a good listener, and a timely, clear communicator. She is warm and engaging and maintained a sense of humor even when things became a bit frustrating. Because we were from out of town, she had to coordinate more than she would have for a local client, and she is continuing to provide referrals and support. I can recommend Joanna without reservation because of her dedication to her clients. She is a definite asset to Beverly-Hanks.

Joanna Beck has assisted us both in buying and selling property. She is always prompt and professional and goes out of her way to make sure that we get the best service possible. We look forward to working with her again in the future.

Joanna Beck was endlessly patient in taking me all around Asheville to see properties, and gave excellent feedback on properties we saw in an objective manner, always with my needs in mind. She went way beyond the call of duty in helping to arrange improvements I needed for the property so that they could be started on right after closing. Joanna even offered to let my cats camp out at her place while I waited for closing! What a kind and gracious lady, in addition to being the most professional and competent realtor with whom I have ever dealt. I would recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a house with absolutely no reservations.

Just keep doing what you are doing. The service is excellent and we felt very comfortable and secure during the whole house hunting experience. Joanna Beck was always available for questions and/or suggestions when we needed her and she never failed in returning timely correspondence. Joanna Beck provided us with many good options and listings once she knew what we were looking for and what we needed (and that happened right after our very first meeting with her). She saved us so much time and energy during the whole process.

Joanna Beck was my Realtor and so much more. She was understanding about the difficulties I had in putting the house on the market and allowed me to express my sadness in giving up this place I loved so dearly. I trusted her to get the best price for my house and also to put folks into the home who would cherish it as much as I. Her dedication truly helped me to trust that the buyers were not getting just any house but, rather, a home. She added her special touch by letting me know what attracted the buyers to my home and that was reassuring to me as the feature was also valued by me. I would recommend Joanna without reservation to others in the market for a special place in these mountains. This is also Joanna's home and she has a rich family heritage here. It shows! Thank you, Joanna, my friend.

When we moved to the Asheville area we wanted an agent who was very familiar with the region, we got that in Joanna and much more. Quickly we realized her expertise in all facets of the real estate business. More importantly, we found someone who truly cared about us and our happiness. Joanna helped us find a home and then helped us sale our home several years later. We whole heartily recommend her!

Joanna is an absolute gem and a great addition to the staff at the North Asheville Beverly Hanks Office. Joanna hung in there with us for YEARS as we conducted an arduous house search. Over the years, our search became increasingly difficult as our budget diminished. But we finally found the right property and made our move at the earliest possible moment. Joanna helped make that happen. If we hadn't put our bid in when we did, we would have certainly lost the property. When our bid was pitted against those of other potential buyers - (via an interview process) - Joanna represented us in the best possible light. She helped us win the bid. The going got rough through the incredible haze and inevitable pitfalls of the short sale process. Nevertheless, Joanna continued to facilitate excellent communication between the closing attorney's office, the seller's agency, and the short sale law office. She also kept up the cheerleading, which we most desperately needed on the most frustrating of days. Short Sales are not for the faint of heart. Nor are long-term house searches! THANK YOU, JOANNA BECK!!

Joanna was very professional & attentive. She made this process as smooth as possible. As first time home buyers, she eased our fears.  We were very happy!

Joanna was absolutely amazing.  I am so grateful for her hard work and dedication.

Without Joanna, we would have been lost throughout this process.  She has so much knowledge, is so friendly and made this process easier then we could have imagined. 

This was our first real estate purchase.  Joanna was excellent and went above and beyond expectations to make this happen for us.

Joanna is an excellent agent.  She is extremely patient, helpful, and friendly and gave us great service.

We have moved 15 times during our marriage and found Joanna to be the best agent with whom we've worked. She listened to our needs and concerns and showed us a variety of properties and areas based on what we wanted, not what she thought we should have.  Her familiarity with the region, plus her organization and attention to detail were superb!.  We faced a medical emergency just prior to closing and Joanna went above and beyond, managing everything from utility contracts, inspections, and closing paperwork flawlessly.  We would definitely recommend Joanna!

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
