Hi there! My name is Joann Merenda and I love real estate! I live in Modesto, California and I am the lucky wife of a high school history & economics teacher. I have 5 beautiful children and 3 adorable grandchildren, 2 Siamese cats, and hopefully one day a boxer puppy. I was born and raised in Atwater, California. I have lived in the valley my entire life, in various areas but primarily Merced and Stanislaus County. I understand the valley and the challenges many face when trying to purchase or sale their home.
I previously worked in the pharmaceutical field for over 30 years, helping people with their medication needs and navigating their insurances. In 2017, I wanted to make a change and Real Estate was a natural choice for me. I wanted a career that I was able to offer the same type of trusted, professional service to my clients as in my previous role. I understand the importance of privacy, integrity, and honesty. And I also understand buying or selling a house is a 'big deal! Whether you've done it 1 time or 20 times, it's always a different experience. I want to make it a great experience, each and every time for my clients. Most importantly, I have the opportunity to do what I love and meet the most amazing people.
I work mostly by referral. My clients value to me is not just for today, its for the future. If I don't provide each and every person with exceptional superior service, I won't have a business tomorrow. That is why I do my best each and every day to provide the highest level of integrity to my clients, who in turn become my greatest advocates. I value each and every one of them because they allow me to continue to do what I love, provide for my family, and grow as an individual.
