I highly recommend Joanna Horstmeier!
– Bryan Bernstein
Joanna was recommended to me by a colleague who had purchased a house in Lake St. Louis. I was told that she was very knowledgeable and very responsive and helpful for newbies. We began our house search during summer of 2016 in the St. Charles/ St. Peters area, but had to postpone until Christmas time. When we were ready to start looking again, Joanna hit the ground running for us. She lined up a house we wanted to see in Ballwin that same day, and later that night, we were putting in our first offer, with guidance from Joanna. I feel like her knowledge of the area and quick research of local comps really gave us some good negotiating power. Thanks to her, I feel like we saved thousands on our new house. She was always available and very responsive to all of our needs during the entire process. Her office set up all of the inspections and handled everything, so all we had to do was show up and sign loan documents on closing day. The entire process was extremely easy, thanks to Joanna. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a house anywhere in St. Louis.

To Who It May Concern;
My experience with Joanna was 100% positive the consummate professional. As many people have had bad experiences myself included grow weary when looking for an agent. Look no more when I found Joanna she was a God sent. MS Joanna has sold property (fast) for me in the past which went smooth as silk as well as finding property for me. Also finding property that fit my budget and needs.
On a personal level during times I was getting anxious she would always counter that with an uplifting and positive “Don’t worry I’ll take care of it that” by gosh she did’
Never was there a time that I had to hunt her down highly accessible. Always looking out for my best interest wouldn’t let anybody take advantage of me since I’m single it is truly appreciated’.
MS Joanna knows the true meaning of fiduciary a lot of agents do not (very comforting).
So if you’re looking someone that is trustworthy , highly experienced (30 yrs.), well known and respected this is the girl you need.
On top of all her accolades she is a truly nice person and great to work with.

It Went Great!!!
– Katie Douglas
It went great! Joanna is very personable and kind and accommodating to our schedule. She responded quickly over phone and email and was always there to answer our questions. Joanna even worked with us to help us close on our house when she was out of town on vacation. She didn't have to do that, but went above and beyond to make sure we didn't lose out on the house that we wanted. From the first time we talked with Joanna she was helpful and made us feel comfortable working with her. She has a lot of experience and it shows. She took us to view all the homes we requested and when we decided to put an offer on a house she worked with us and the other relator and helped us negotiate the price to get a price that we were happy with and felt was fair. Overall I would recommend hiring Joanna if you want someone who is dedicated to doing her job well and making you happy. She never made us feel rushed to buy and never hesitated to take us to all the homes we wanted to see. I would definitely hire Joanna again in the future.
Description of work:
Joanna was our real estate agent. She talked with us to determine everything we wanted and needed in a home to buy, created us an account that sent us emails with only homes that matched our requirements and took us to see all the homes that we requested to view. After only about 2 months we found a home that we love and bought it! We move in to our new home in less than a week and couldn't be happier!
Review of Service: Joanna Horstmeier
Both my mother and I worked with Joanna to purchase homes during the spring of 2016. My mom was looking in St. Charles, MO while I was looking in St. Louis, MO. Both of us were very impressed with Joanna’s performance throughout the home purchasing process.
First, Joanna is highly professional, exhibiting a high degree of knowledge and dedication to her work. She showed my mom homes during the weekend and ensured that no time was wasted looking either at homes that did not meet my mom’s specifications or at undesired locations. Joanna also worked with my tight schedule to so I could accompany my mom at the viewings. With both of our home searches, Joanna provided detailed information and researched questions to which she did not have an immediate answer.
Second, Joanna was very timely in responding to both my mom and I. If we had questions or concerns, we could text/call/email her and receive a response within a few hours. This is much better than what I consider professional business etiquette, which is a response within 24 hours during a standard work week. Joanna responded just as quickly after work hours and during the weekend. Overall, her communication was highly impressive considering the number of texts/calls/emails Joanna received from my mom and I.
Third, Joanna provided services after the sale of both homes. My mom had an issue after purchasing that was a loophole in the contractual agreement between my mom and the seller and my mom and the condominium association. Joanna sent several hours resolving this issue, including seeking additional legal information, from which my mom benefited. Regarding my purchase, I had a few items unaddressed in my inspection report that the seller agreed to fix. Joanna helped my facilitated getting the items addressed.
Fourth, Joanna made both my mom and I feel comfortable throughout the home-buying experience. She was not pushy and did not rush us at viewings. Furthermore, she was very honest in giving her opinions about the various homes we viewed.
Overall, both my mom and I had a very positive experience with Joanna and absolutely no negative experiences regarding her performance. Both of us would highly recommend Joanna to others looking for homes in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
Thank you Joanna for your service.

PS: I especially appreciate your quick response back to us and always making the extra effort to your availability!
I am a new home buyer and like many others, I had a long list of real estate agent names and referrals to choose from. We made the decision to work with Joanna Horstmeier and that was the best decision we could have made. She had more knowledge of the housing market in our area and the surrounding areas than I thought imaginable. She was very thorough, organized, and helpful throughout our home buying process. After showing several houses, I decided on a home and Joanna immediately went to work gathering everything informational we could need on our house and the comparable houses in the area. Needless to say, I was very well educated on my home, thanks to Joanna. When closing day came, there were no surprises, Joanna had everything set up, all parties ready, and like the entire home buying process, it was easy and stress free. I will personally recommend her to my friends and family. Finally, I would highly recommend Joanna Horstmeier to anyone in the housing market, buying or selling, because it will be the best decision anyone else makes as well. -R.W.

To Whom It May Concern,
This is my first time working with Joanna Horstmeier and I have been impressed every step of the way. From the very beginning, she has been extremely proactive, communicative, and professional. She reached out to our firm when she noticed our listing had expired and I was immediately pleased with her initiative. She was very focused on understanding our company's needs and how to accommodate them.
I deal with realtors all over the country on a number of different REO properties on a daily basis and Joanna far exceeds many of them. She is always available to answer any questions I may have, and responds in a timely manner when action needs to be taken, Our company is not located in the same area, so we heavily rely on our real estate agents to guide us on pricing, expectations, and preserving the property. Joanna has proven to be very knowledgeable in the local market and has continually given quality advice on how to handle all aspects of selling our property.
Though we have encountered a number of obstacles with the property itself, Joanna has never faltered or given me a reason to doubt that she wouldn't be successful. She has repeatedly helped us work through the various issues and we are getting ready to close. Joanna has been professional, upbeat, and positive through the entire process and I wouldn't hesitate to use her again.
I wanted to thank you again for all your help. It was a pleasure working with you!
A satisfied Client!!!
We recently sold our home in the Wentzville, Missouri and used Joanna after listing with another agent for six months without a single offer. From Joanna's first visit I knew she was very knowledgeable and we had an offer within 30 days! Joanna and her staff were great and if I ever buy or sell again I will be definitely giving them a call!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Thank you so much for everything! We've enjoyed working with you and we'd be happy to recommend you. Please feel free to come by to see what we have done to the place!
Joanna is a real winner!
"All of us at Investors Title really enjoy working with Joanna. Her years of experience definitely show in her work. Joanna and her team are knowledgeable, thorough, and efficient. They keep in contact with the title company from beginning to end to make sure the closing experience is stress-free for all of her customers."

Joanna is #1
Joanna goes all out to find the "home" for you. She is honest about what she notices or knows about each property. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a place to call their own.
Susan A., A very satisfied client
I highly recommend Joanna
"I have been working with Joanna on a regular basis since 2009. As a loan officer ,I work with many real estate agents, and the loan process is much easier when you work with a real estate agent who has the knowledge and experience to handle any transaction. Joanna knows how to handle any residential real estate transaction. She really gets to know her clients, and always stays in close contact with everyone involved with the transaction. She works well with first-time home buyers, as well as home buyers who have purchased multiple homes. I strongly urge anyone to use Joanna as their real estate agent if you are buying and/or selling your home."

Joanna is a shining star!
"When I first began to work with Joanna Horstmeier, it was evident that this was a Realtor with a lot of experience. From the beginning it was evident that she knew what she was doing, not only in sales, but in handling all aspects of the business.
Being a good Realtor is a juggling act dealing with clients, assessing home value, marketing and advertising, staying on top of multiple listings, staying educated on constant changes in codes and requirements, lining up contractors and loan advisers, meeting deadlines, and holding of all hands involved with each transaction.
Joanna, with all of her years of experience, handles all of it with grace! Because I work on the sidelines with her, some of this I know first hand, but most of it I know from her clients.
Ellen Klammon, Professional Stager
Joanna is amazing!

Thank God it's over!!

If your objective is to buy or sell a home in the St. Louis Metro area, I advise you to use the services of Ms. Joanna Horstmeier, GRS, GRI of Team RE/Max. You couldn't fine a more knowledgeable, sincere, and caring agent in the St. Louis Metro area.
We recently sold our home in the O'Fallon, Missouri area and used Joanna after listing with another agent for seven months. From Joanna's first visit she kept us informed about what to expect from the selling process, she provided techniques that assisted in making the home show better. Joanna provided weekly status reports for our review every Saturday. The reports provided insight into the time and effort she put into finding a buyer for our home each week it was listed.
Joanna's commitment went far above and beyond listing and showing the house. We experienced some problems just before closing and were not sure we would be able to close the deal on time. Joanna step-in and made it possible for the deal to take place, she was willing to work with us to ensure that everything would conclude on time.
This lady is more than a realtor or agent, she is a Godsend. We're pleased to share our thoughts and feelings about Joanna and her team at REMax. They were always kind, thoughtful, caring, professional and sincere but most of all committed to providing the very best service possible to assist us in the sale of our home.
Joanna you're the best and we love you.

We recently had the opportunity to work with Joanna and Gina on our home sale and purchase. We were very particular about who we hired for these transactions because we had an unfavorable experience previously with a different realty company. We choose Joanna and were not disappointed. Her experience and expertise were crucial to our situation. You see, we had a house to sell and a house to buy but wanted to accomplish this feat with one move. We did it! Joanna guided us through the sale of our house and scrutinized every detail on the purchase of our new home. We were truly impressed by her attention to details. I also must give kudos to Gina. She was always there to help with paperwork and offer her assistance and assurance that everything was fine. As you know or will soon find out, buying or selling a home can be a very challenging experience.
I recently had the pleasant opportunity to work with Joanna in looking for a home in St. Charles County. I am also in sales and can say that I truly appreciate Joanna's professionalism. I believe her knowledge and experience is what helped find my perfect new home, in a short time. Joanna was able to negotiate a great selling price and was even able to move up the closing to accommodate my needs. Joanna guided me through it all. There were problems that I hadn't even thought of. Joanna and her staff were always there to help me through the sale and advise me every step of the way. It was great knowing what to expect and being able to be prepared. I was quite pleased. I am very conscientious about my work. I appreciate being able to have worked with an agent that knows the market, is also consciousness and has years of experience. My home buying experience and working with Joanna has been a good experience. I would recommend her service. She truly is a professional.
Thank you once again. I really appreciate all your help.If I am ever again in the market for a house, rest assured, you will be my first choice in agents. You're the best!
Just a big Thank you to Joanna and her staff for making the quick sale of my home as comfortable as possible. First, it was amazing to me that it sold as fast as it did. Because of Joanna's expert knowledge of the market, I believe that I was way ahead of the people who have their homes listed for months.
A special thanks to Joanna's staff who were the glue that held me together when I was bouncing off the walls. Joanna did a great job and followed through with everything she said she would do. The team was professional and expedient at all times and everything turned out great for me. Joanna would be my choice to sell my home again and she would always have my highest recommendation. good luck to you in the future.
