Making your real estate experience as stress free as possible!
Associate Real Estate Broker
After graduating from Bryant University with a BA in Business Administration, Joanna spent 6 years at a Future 500 company in Boston managing their customer service and marketing team. With this opportunity Joanna learned to thrive in a fast paced team environment. Once Joanna moved back “home”, her love for real estate started as the Vice President and Property Manager of a small local real estate holding company. She spent over ten years gaining experience in pre-foreclosures, auctions, short sales and “flips”.
Joanna has lived most of her life in Saratoga County -– raised in Charlton, a proud alumni of Burnt-Hills Ballston-Lake, and has worked various jobs in Glenville, Ballston Spa, Malta and Saratoga. Joanna has enjoyed investing and living in Malta’s Luther Forest for the last 15 years. Joanna would say being a single parent has also greatly increased her organization and negotiation skills!
Joanna’s main goal is helping her clients have the most stress free experience while buying and/or selling their home. By leveraging her extensive background in real estate sales, aided with her attention to detail and digital communication skills, Joanna has helped many clients reach their goals over the last 9 years as a licensed real estate salesperson. Building customer rapport and really trying to help them find a great home or investment opportunity is Joanna’s strength.
Joanna is a member of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and the Greater Capital Region Association of REALTORS® (GCAR). Joanna loves giving back to the community and over the years has organized fundraising events benefiting local charities such as: American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, Donate Life, Rebuilding Together Saratoga, American Lung Association, March of Dimes, Special Olympics and more! Joanna loves helping her community and those in it.
“We were first time home buyers so we were in need of someone who could help guide us. Joanna Rockwood was amazing. At our request, she showed us homes on every corner of the surrounding counties….with a smile. She showed us what to pay attention to when walking through the home…things I would never think of. Due to the extreme competitiveness of the market, she always kept us thinking about the next house and reminding us that soon we would be the winners. We had many laughs walking through homes that were selling way more than what it appeared to be worth. We finally found our home and completely owe it all to Joanna. I have told most of my coworkers to reach out to her if they are looking. Thank you Joanna.”

“With how demanding the housing market has been lately we are truly grateful for having Ms. Joanna Rockwood as our real estate agent. Ms. Rockwood has been extremely knowledgeable, kind and patient with us as first time home buyers. It’s been a pleasure working with her. Most importantly, we found a home! We would highly recommend Joanna Rockwood to anyone looking for a home in the Capital District.”
“We worked with Joanna and she was great from the very beginning of the selling process to the end. She was responsive to calls/emails and is so knowledgeable in the real estate market. We needed our house sold quickly due to us having a baby and she did exactly that! We would absolutely recommend her for both the selling or buying experience.”

“I was lucky enough to work with Joanna Rockwood to sell one home and buy another. She was supportive and has a great knowledge of the real estate market. I bring a lot of anxiety to the table selling a house. Between the emotion of selling your home, combined with the sometimes unrealistic expectations of potential buyers, I find it to be an awful, stressful experience. Joanna worked hard to keep me calm and sold my home quickly. Joanna really listens to you, and understands and supports what you are looking for. The communication is excellent. Both closings happened the same day, and that never would have happened if she had not worked so hard behind the scenes. When you are looking to buy and/or sell, you want a partner who is working with you and for you. Don’t settle for agents who are lazy and who really do not know anything about the communities you are looking to live in. I would only recommend Joanna Rockwood.”

“HUGE thanks to Joanna Rockwood for working with us over the past year to help us find “our” home and for patiently managing my 50 million texts and questions. Covid made this a more challenging process but Joanna was AWESOME and we are so grateful for your assistance, professionalism and honesty. If anyone ever needs a realtor you want to call Joanna!!!”

“Joanna helped us find our home! In what is a very competitive market right now, she was able to make magic happen! Joanna has a great working relationship with other relators and was able to get us into homes before open houses. Not only is she very smart when it comes to the buying/negotiating process but her knowledge of homes and what to look for/be aware of was very helpful!
Even when we got down, she was there to lift us back up. When we doubted the process she assured us it would all be worth it (and it was)! Joanna was not just a realtor, she was an advisor and a friend. She stood by us through all of my questions (and my annoying texts) right through the closing process. We couldn’t have done this without her!”
