Coldwell Banker Innovation's spotlight Realtor, this week is Joan McLernon.  Joan will be celebrating a birthday this coming week, so Happy Birthday Joan.  With over 35 years experience in the real estate industry, Joan consistently achieves multi-million dollar sales volume year after year.  When asked about her success, Joan credits her clients; "Our industry is client/customer service driven.  My number 1 priority is my clients' success in selling their current home and buying their future home.  When my clients are successful in their real estate endeavors, I've done my job well.  It all starts with my clients--their goals are my main focus."

Joan takes pride in her varied real estate career.  Starting out administratively provided a solid foundation for understanding client needs and basic real estate fundamentals.  Transitioning to 7 years in Commercial Development & Leasing in the DC Metropolitan area enhanced that knowledge while adding a business approach when discussing future returns on real estate investments for clients in all categories.  Switching gears to 7 years of New Construction marketing & sales in the residential arena provided access to marketing trends for the broadest audience, construction techniques/strategies and community planning.  All leading up to obtaining licenses in Maryland and Pennsylvania for the past 20 years and honing her skills for successful one-on0one relationships with buyers and sellers.  "There nothing like seeing the excitement of a first time homebuyer entering their first home; a family realizing the dream of owning a home to fit the needs of their growing family; a couple nearing retirement and seizing the dream they have worked a lifetime to achieve; or assisting the entrepreneur in building a successful real estate portfolio.  I start each day asking that someone be brought into my life so I can help make their life better.  I am truly blessed to be able to do so."

Beyond real estate, Joan enjoys her free time with her family raising black angus cattle, adopting rescue animals of all sizes, travel and riding motorcycles.  "I have the best family, both human and animal kind, life is grand."
