Joi moved to Florida in 1989 from Kentucky. She found her love for real estate while in college, when her mom, also an agent, encouraged her to get her license. Joi has been practicing real estate since 2001. She worked with a technology driven online brokerage firm from 2001 until 2005, and was a top performing member of the company. After becoming a broker, Joi went on to manage a local boutique realty office, before she joined Bloom Realty as the Managing Broker.
Joi’s clients have credited her natural talent for negotiations, out of the box strategic thinking, and measurable results as reasons for working with her. Due to her expertise in the real estate industry she has worked with many investors; averaging a high 30-34% return on investment (ROI) for her clients. Joi is realistic and practical with her clients, and they feel confident knowing she is on their side.
She wanted a unique boutique brokerage when she created Bloom Realty. Agents that are a part of the team have a heart for their clients and have high emotional IQs. Most of the agents live in the historic neighborhoods that they work in; and creating a long-lasting and trusting relationship with clients has set the brokerage apart from others in the area.
Her passion for real estate is matched by her love of Jacksonville’s historic neighborhoods. From diverse architecture and people to award-winning dining and a fantastic park system, the historic urban core neighborhoods are her favorite in the city. When she’s not working, Joi enjoys international travel, supporting local restaurants and businesses, and spending time with her partner and their dogs.
Joi is amazing! She really listened to us and understood what we were looking for - we had been going to open houses for over a year and hadn't seen anything that fit, but we fell in love with and ultimately purchased the very first house Joi showed us. She definitely knows the local market inside out - we would probably not have ever even looked at our house based on the listing photos, but Joi had seen it in person and knew it was worth a look. Once we made the offer, she guided us through the negotiation process like an expert and was always available to answer any and all questions. Just as importantly, she is truly a joy to work with. She was there for us every step of the way and went above and beyond what we ever expected a real estate agent to do (taking us out for drinks to celebrate the offer being accepted, meeting with contractors and coming with us to the design meeting for the remodeling we wanted to do, the list goes on!). I cannot overstate how fantastic Joi is on both a professional and personal level. We are so glad we worked with her and recommend her enthusiastically!
