With over 30 years of helping people buy and sell real estate in York Region, Johanna knows the local market inside and out. After moving from Montreal to Markham in 1978, she fell in love with Markham's close knit neighbourhoods and community spirit. Her previous career in the construction industry included dealing with construction crews around the world. Providing round the clock service to crews in different time zones prepared her for a life in Real Estate, where client needs take precedence over personal time.
Starting from scratch, Johanna built her own personal Real Estate brand in the Markham area, excelling almost immediately - winning awards every single year since the start of her career - but more importantly, winning repeat business and referrals from happy clients
Johanna has been awarded yearly awards beginning with Family Trust, MinCom, Canada Trust, and Re/Max every single year of her career, and is a Hall of Fame member, with special designation for over 25 years of service. But these awards for successfully negotiating high numbers and volumes of sales is truly not what makes Johanna different from the hundreds of other agents in the York Region area.
What makes her different is her commitment to the client experience that is so focused, so personal, so detail oriented, that her clients from 25 years ago still actively recommend their friends, children, grandchildren and parents to her.
30+ years of experience has taught Johanna to handle any delicate scenario, to read any situation and apply the appropriate nuanced negotiating and sales tactics that are best for her clients, to use discretion and respect as a tool for manipulating the optimal outcome for our clients in any circumstance, and to consistently negotiate the best price and preferential sales terms possible.
Adrianne Parker joined Johanna in the family business in 2004. Previously, Adrianne had risen quickly in the ranks of both domestic and international advertising agencies, with demanding clients like TELUS, BMO Private Banking, and HydroOne.
Adrianne loved the fast paced Agency life, where Client Service and Results were something you lived and died by, and consistently designing successful marketing plans, measuring them, and redesigning to achieve immediate results were the name of the game. Adrianne has brought this aggressive approach to Team Parker, completely redesigning how we market homes, proactively target potential Buyers & Sellers, and building on Johanna’s experience to build a database of potential Buyers & Sellers, Centers of Influence and Strategic Alliances that continue to benefit our clients.
At the same time, Adrianne began her personal experiences in Real Estate early - buying not only for personal use but also as an investment. From a rip-it-apart-with-a-sledgehammer- DYI reno, to a professional full-gut reno, to condo investing, to turning a 2 story into a legal duplex - she's done it all and is a tremendous resource for first timers and seasoned real estate buyers alike!
Having grown up in Markham, but currently living in downtown Toronto, Adrianne has the unique opportunity to work successfully in two areas with intimate knowledge of both markets. This, coupled with a seemingly endless source of energy, a strong background in client services, and true passion for strategy & negotiating, has powered her strong entry into real estate, and her extremely successful 10+ year real estate career.
Adrianne holds sales awards for every single year of her career, and became a Re/Max Hall of Fame member in almost record time, but, like Johanna, Adrianne benchmarks true success with the happiness and satisfaction of her clients. Their repeat business, their referrals to friends and family, and the relationships she has formed with them is the reward of her hard work and the result of treating every deal like it is her own.
