Johanna grew up in New York City and after earning her B.S. degree from Pace University in New York City she relocated to South Florida where she fell in love with the beaches and beautiful, balmy weather. Her quest and love for both helping people and real estate led her to obtain her Real Estate License in 2000. She initially worked for one of the largest builders in the country learning all facets of the home building industry including construction, customer service and negotiation. After meeting her husband, who also has a career in real estate, they left South Florida and relocated to Flagler Beach in 2003. There she continued in new home sales until the birth of their son which compelled Johanna to take some time from her career to focus on family.
