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.
My wife and I have known Joi since she worked with us in 2003 to find and purchase our home in Riverside/Avondale. We were relocating from NYC and didn't know much at all about Jacksonville, but Joi gave us great advice and we ended up on an amazing block in a perfect neighborhood in a dream house. We had such a fantastic experience with Joi that we remained friends throughout our many years living in Jacksonville (in that same home). When it came time to put our house on the market earlier this year, we turned to Joi and she could not have been more amazing. She was proactive and visionary! She knew the every aspect of the market and helped us sell our home fairly quickly (all the time skillfully and pleasantly coordinating scheduling with our tenant who had been renting our home for the previous year). My wife and I enthusiastically recommend Joi Perkins for selling your home or helping you find a home to purchase, because she did both a fantastic job doing both for us!
