Joe & Cindy
Have been working with Joanna for years. Always a great experience as she is attentive to every detail and always available to answer my questions. I am currently working with her to place a tenant in one of my rental homes.
Christina & Jonathan
Working with Joanna has been a wonderful experience! She has been very accommodating to our needs and responded quickly and straight to the point. Not only that, but you could connect to her on a personal level. Many thanks!
Kristie K
Loved working with Joanna and her team. Excellent and very informative. Made home buying a great experience. Anyone looking to buy or sell needs to get in contact with her.
Amanda & Paul
We have used Joanna twice now and wouldn't use anyone else. She's great with helping you through the process and keeping your best interests in mind.
Pete Ferguson
Joanna Darmanin is an outstanding realtor. She is organized, knowledgeable, helpful and thorough. She made our whole experience in selling our condo a very pleasurable one. I would recommend Joanna most highly! I would also like to mention the courteous and conscientious staff at Keller Williams. Always professional and helpful!
Amy & Jason
Working with Joanna Darmanin and her team was a great experience. I can not stress enough the benefits of having a team behind you during your home buying experience. Our home buying experience overlapped a conference that Joanna needed to attend but since we were working with her and her team there was a seamless transition into continuing our hunt in her absence. While she was out we worked with her team member Cathy VanGorder and she was amazing. We ending up finding our home on our second walk though with Cathy and closing less than 25 days later. If Joanna did not have a rockstar team behind her we might have missed out on the home of our dreams. If you are looking for a wonderful home buying or selling experience with a team of experts behind you, look no further. Joanna Darmanin and The Darmanin Team will have you covered.

I would use/recommend Joanna to friends and family. She responded within minutes/hours to a call/text/email. Made sure to only show us what we were looking for and not waste time with anything that wasn't within budget or scope of what we wanted.
Crystal & Mike
Joanna and her team were fantastic to work with! Personable, professional, and effective, they assisted with every step of selling our old house and buying our new one. She had suggestions on how to prepare the house for sale. We had multiple offers and sold in the first week! She sorted through the listings and we found a great new home in 4 days! I highly recommend Joanna and her team.
Susan & Brett
Joanna has been helping me with my real estate needs for the last several years. From when I was renting, to when I finally found my dream house, nothing has been too small or too large an effort. She approached each endeavor with the same enthusiasm and commitment, supporting me and my family through the long and arduous process. Every member of the Darmanin team has been very knowledgable and responsive to all of my needs, and they always put the client first. They have made what can sometimes be a very difficult process a very positive experience and I would recommend Joanna in a heartbeat.

My husband and I were planning a move to FL but didn't have a realtor. We posted to a "top realtors in your area" website to interview possible candidates. Joanna was the only one to respond, and it was immediate. We met with her and were immediately impressed with her thorough preparedness! Joanna listed our home, kept us apprised at every turn, and immediately returned all calls we made to her. The professionalism of Joanna and her team was beyond compare! Within three days we had four offers on our home; Joanna's expertise helped us wisely choose the correct buyer. Her team then brilliantly helped us through the closing process, which could not have gone more smoothly! If you're looking for a responsive, true professional, simply call her. She and her team are the best, and you won't be disappointed!
Gio & Mike
Joanna was simply wonderful! She helped us sell our home and find a new one! She really listened to what we were looking for and catered to all of our family's needs. We were not easy buyers and we had a very long list! She was patient and understanding. She definitely went above and beyond her duties as our realtor! Thanks Joanna!
Sophie & Rich
Joanna was so personable that when we met her at an open house that she was hosting, we knew that she was the perfect fit for my husband and I. Besides the fact that she was knowledgeable and sweet, she had team of people available so that we could view any house that we were interested in ON DEMAND (which was a high priority for two full-time working parents). In addition, when our motrtgage broker was too lazy to answer my questions, Joanna stepped up to help us out. Not only did she help us find our dream home, she made the sale of our existing home (at the time) seamless! We LOVE Joanna and her Kelker Williams team!
Joanna was able to help us think outside the box and move quickly with a delayed closing due to our circumstances. Her knowledge and experience were key to communicating our requests with the Seller. She has continued to be an excellent source of information and referrals of other home related services. She is always willing to go above and beyond! We could not be more please with our choice of the Darmanin Team!!!
OMG Joanna is amazing! She stuck with us until we found the right house! She was more than excited to show us houses anywhere in the Metro Detroit area -- each door we opened, she helped us s ee the potential and see the flaws. And then we found our house... She saw what we saw and was totally excited for us! Our first house has plenty of potential, she listened as we told her our design plans even from day one! Joanna was awesome once we made the decision on our house. She was excited to count out the miles we'd have to drive to and from work (which are next to none!). She was excited when we got closer to closing on the house -- Getting the inspection done and taking my deposit money -- so easy. She was there precisely when we needed her, always with a smile on her face. Besides all of the other things that I've chatted about Joanna -- I absolutely admire her personality. Happy, excitable, easy to talk with, professional, down to earth, easy to relate to, diligent, optimistic and downright awesome. I would be more than happy to refer her to anyone looking for a new place to live. :) Getting into my house took just a hair under two months -- from finding it to moving in. My experience has been AMAZING.

We highly recommend Joanna after getting to know her in connection with both selling our home and purchasing a new one. She is extremely knowledgeable and provided invaluable assistance in both processes.
Lynn & Sini
Joanna was always available to answer questions and made our experience of selling our hope a pleasant one. She was also equally responsive and assisted us in finding and obtaining our new home. She also provided us with valuable information and advise in various instances connected to both real estate transactions.
Nick & Emily
Gave helpful advice to get our house ready for sale and we accepted an offer in less than week after the house was on the market. Everything went smoothly and all of our calls and questions wer e answered immediately.
Carly & Zac
We have worked with Joanna twice in the last two years, once as a buyer and once as a seller, and she was wonderful on both ends! As buyers, Joanna truly listened to us and had our interests at heart as we looked for a home that suited our family. She is extremely responsive and goes above and beyond to make herself available and helpful. As sellers, we could not be more thrilled with the results we had working with Joanna and the hardworking Darmanin Team. Not only did our house sell quickly but for a fabulous price. Joanna’s dedication to her clients is second to none. We are excited to work with her again in the near future
I highly recommend Joanna, regardless if you are buying or selling. Joanna is helpful, supportive, persistent and offers honest advice on the moves you should make. She definitely is not a high -pressure, disingenuous 'sales-type,' telling you want you want to hear or steering you in an uncomfortable direction, but someone that wants to work with you to understand and eventually get your desired results. She helped me sell a home that needed some work before the sale went through, as the work progressed she made sure that the prospective buyer was well-informed and offered me her suggestions to make everything work out for the best. If you're looking for a person to help buy/sell, you won't be disappointed by giving Joanna a try.
Joanna is an amazing agent! She really was a pleasure to work with. She is enthusiastic, professional, very responsive, patient with her clients, and very knowledgeable in her field. She makes the process seem not as grueling as it really can be. She has a wonderful work ethic and won't stop until her clients are satisfied. I would highly recommend using Joanna for buying or selling your home!
Joanna is a very knowledgable agent, in both the real estate market and the buying process. She was always quick to get back to us and willing to met us on short notice. I would highly recommend Joanna.
Joanna saved our deal. We had a really difficult time closing with Chase because of their overkill underwriting department (so many mistakes made), so she recommended a smaller, more local bank that had us closed in 13 days! Also, because we were new to the area she provided a complete list of experts to call for different kinds of maintenance needs. Finally, I felt she always had my best interest in mind when making the deal. She was truly fun, funny and a delight to work with. Her patience was perfectly balanced with her pressure of the right people at the right time. Couldn't have been happier (I've bout 7 homes all over the country and she was the best realtor to deal with!!).
Joanna is the epitome of customer service. While I was only looking for an investment property, and thus not a high price range, she treated me as if I were looking for my very first home with a price range of $1 Million, providing me with unbiased knowledge and expertise on things that I may have overlooked or wasn't considering. Her responsiveness is unmatched...if you find a property, you know the status and have an appointment setup within minutes. Joanna understands that this is your home and she is only there to guide you on this important process. After this process, I feel that I have gained a friend and I will undoubtedly use Joanna for any real estate needs that I have in the future. Every person that I know who is looking to buy, sell, rent, or invest will be getting Joanna's number.

I have purchased 5 properties in the Detroit metro area in the past year (3 in Ferndale, 1 in Hazel Park, and 1 in Midtown Detroit), and Joanna has been my agent for all 5. She is a fantastic a gent-super responsive, trustworthy, honest, and she has great market knowledge; excellent negotiating skills. Four of the five properties were foreclosures and though some of them could have been logistical nightmares because I live out of state, Joanna made the whole process go smoothly! She is on top of every detail and I feel so lucky to have her as my agent. When I bought my apartment in New York, my agent was a disaster and I was nervous about finding someone good when I started buying in Detroit. I found Joanna through USAA's relocation services, and she is THE BEST! I'm taking a breather from my property buying spree, but when I'm ready to add to my portfolio, I will be working with Joanna for sure.
Rachel B
Joanna was wonderful to work with when purchasing a new home, she was more than patient with our year-long search, and making sure we received everything on our wishlist. She was always availab le for questions or last minute showings. I highly recommend working with Joanna for your future real estate transactions.

I am an out of town property owner and Joanna has been amazing to work with in every possible aspect! Most recently, Joanna helped me sell a condo and find a tenant for a rental house. She has a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm for what she does, and she will definitely go the extra mile to make sure everything is handled. I joked with her recently when I asked her if she ever sleeps, as I get emails from her late and night and early in the morning, when there is something important to handle, I have worked with other agents in the past, but I can tell you that once you work with Joanna, you will quickly see that she is a cut above the rest. Joanna has all the ingredients of an OUTSTANDING agent, a wealth of knowledge and experience, an upbeat and enthusiastic attitude and a tireless work ethic.
Catherine C
Joanna is extremely hard working and dedicated to helping you find the house you want! She is very knowledgeable and has no issues going to the city you're interested whenever is convenient for you.
Holly S
Joanna was referred to me by a friend and it was honestly the best decision I could have made to choose her! I had a short list of must haves but saw a few houses more than once and Joanna was more than accommodating. Joanna was also more than accommodating with my need to see houses on a weekend! I ended up purchasing a short sale home and she was with on my side every step of the way, she called my nerves and assured me everything was going to be okay when it seemed like it was taking a century to hear anything back. I would recommend Joanna to ANYONE!!
Amy K
I cannot say enough positive things about Joanna. I listed my house in Royal Oak with Joanna and it sold in 2 days, I was thinking at the time the offer came in..WOW Joanna had it easy, only 2 days. I had no idea that the work for an agent is really just beginning at this point. The inspection,appraisal,closing issues/paperwork, etc are all next. Joanna kept me continually informed and was never bothered by all my concerns and questions. She was always available via phone/text/e-mail and always got back to me promptly. Even after closing, she reached out to me to see if I received certain distributions outside of the closing(homeowners/escrow/water/etc.) I currently live in Florida and she made the whole process seamless. I would highly recommend anyone looking for an agent to seek out Joanna Darmanin.
