Joanna Tessler is premier broker of luxury residential properties throughout Miami, with a focus on the waterfront neighborhoods of Bal Harbor, Bay Harbor, Surfside, Keystone Point, Aventura, and Miami Beach.
She began her career as a fundraiser in the non-profit sector, where she honed her networking and organizational skills. Having grown up in the real estate world, tagging along with her mom to showings all throughout her childhood, Joanna’s transition to the business felt entirely natural and somewhat inevitable. Her entry into the professional Real Estate world was in New York City where she was licensed with Halstead Properties, specializing in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
The Miami native was thrilled to finally return home to do what she loves most in the diverse, dynamic, constantly evolving city she loves most. It’s now been over twelve years since she joined her mother Ilene Tessler, sister Michele Tessler Berlowitz, and lifelong friend Bonnie Brooks. Their cohesiveness as a team allows them to give their clients an unusual level of service and attention.
Joanna’s referral network has allowed her to facilitate transactions in Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, the Keys, Boca Raton and as far north as Palm Beach. Her referral network is strong and it allows her to keep a pulse on her clients best interests by combining efforts with her counterparts in the field.
What makes Joanna’s style so unique is her holistic approach to the process. “The easiest part is finding the property,” she notes. More difficult, and what she excels at, is making sure everything moves smoothly to the closing table. She does this with a level of precision, integrity and relatability that is highly valued and appreciated by her clients. Even more, she is a fantastic resource, especially for those relocating to new communities. Whether it’s a pediatrician, a lawyer, or a lunch spot, clients continue to turn to Joanna long after they’ve moved in.
