JoAnna Ide, Broker Associate with Roger Martin Properties

Congratulations to Jo Anna Ide, for winning the "Sold on My Realtor" Award!  Your superior people skills have been recognized by the Houston Chronicle ...

How did you decide to become a realtor? 

"You know the old saying about turning something negative into something positive? I have always had a passion for houses since I was a little girl.  I would make my parents pull over to look at any house I thought was interesting or that "might be for sale".  I love all kinds of architecture - old and new - and have always enjoyed remodeling and decorating homes.  I am very much a perope person and I love working with clients helping them find just the right home, neighborhood and schools for their children. Having worked as a teacher and principal for many years, I feel that I have an advantage in educating  clients on the best neighborhoods for the home they want for their families and the schools and programs they want for their children."

Why should someone use a realtor when buying a home? 

"I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful couple relocating to Houston from Dallas with two teenage children. The family is very close and the parents wanted the children to feel that they were very much involved in the process because it was a hard move for them leaving their friends and school behind. To give the kids ownership and involvement in the process we wrote a very professional and legal addendum requiring their signatures, that stated that the children had the final approval on the River Oaks home they eventually bought."
