Joanne Smith, Broker   Professional Real Estate Services

A Little Bit About Me and My Business...

"I strive to be the absolute best possible version of myself."

There are aspects of real estate sales that seem pretty simple however there are many elements of a transaction that are complicated and daunting. I take great pride in helping my clients with every aspect of buying or selling their property. I’m experienced, I’m professional, and I care. 

I Love Thunder Bay!

I grew up in a lighthouse surrounded by water, seagulls, rugged terrain and really friendly people. Living here feels like home, and that's why I love Thunder Bay!  

My interest in real estate began as an investor, renovating and 'flipping', buying and renting. During this time my Realtor suggested I look into selling Real Estate as a professional career. I began in Manitoba in 2002 where I worked in a busy Re/Max office as an assistant to the broker and later in the fastest growing office in Southeastern Manitoba as a full time Realtor, winning Rookie of the Year Award in my first year.   

I moved from Manitoba in 2005 and worked hard to fast track my exposure to the Thunder Bay housing market commited to offering my clients professional real estate services, outstanding customer service, a network of resources and attention to the details of home selling and buying. 

Previous employment experiences include banking, management and sales, as well as years of service to the public in various musical capacities. My educational background includes a Business Administration Diploma and, as yet incomplete, Bachelor’s Degree in Music & Psychology (goals for the future). From city to country properties, newly developing subdivisions to commercial properties, my real estate knowledge base is diverse and varied. I continue to invest in real estate, recently acquiring a recreational property on Lake Superior.  I love Thunder Bay!
