Read what others are saying about Joann Samelko.

My experience with Northside Realty and agent Joann Samelko couldn't have been better. Joann was willing to sell my home at its true market value and work hard to do just that versus lowballing the selling price by 25% as other realtors with other firms wanted to do for a quick "I sold this house in 2 days" kudos at the expense of MY best interests. Those other agents' lack of fiduciary responsibility was shocking/appalling. Joann came out, listened, advised, coached, and developed a very comprehensive marketing plan that got my house sold. Through the selling process (with some difficult buyers) she was able to strategically make the right calls & moves that ultimately got my house sold. I would absolutely recommend her to sell your home and I will be using her again when I am ready to purchase my next home. Thank you Northside....Thank you Joann!

- Michael Berke

Joann helped us purchase a property several years ago. We did not hesitate to use her service again, when we decided to sell property. She is incredibly helpful, always available, knowledgeable, professional. We can recommend her to anyone looking for an agent.

I had the absolute best experience! Joann Samelko was my agent and I would recommend her to any/everyone! She worked hard to understand my needs and then assisted me in ways that anticipated my questions. She was kind, efficient and a partner in navigating the whole process. I can't say enough good about my experience with Joann! I highly recommend!!!

- Thomas W. Newman

Having brought and sold over fifteen homes over my lifetime I can state Joann has been the most professional and knowledgeable of all of our agents. Her marketing strategy of selling our home was superior In every category as compared to other realtors,she was an excellent communicator, followed up with us on each house showing, gave us her opinion and most of all SOLD OUR HOME. I highly recommend Joann to represent you if you are buying or selling your home and you will not be disappointed.

Joann is an absolutely fabulous realtor. She worked diligently with us throughout our longer than average home search and provided superb support and guidance the whole way through. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Raleigh real estate market and provided keen insights for us each step of the way. I would highly recommend working with Joann - for us she became more than a realtor, but a true partner for finding our "forever home".

Joann was a tremendous resource for us in our relocation. Joann stayed with us for more than a year as family emergencies delayed our new home search. She was particularly helpful in scheduling multiple viewings in a logical and timely order to accommodate our limited time visiting the area. She is extremely knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods and developments throughout the greater Raleigh area. Throughout the process, Joann was extremely responsive and very detail-oriented, and when she did not have an answer to a question, she quickly researched the item to give us timely and valuable feedback. We highly recommend Joann to represent anyone seeking a dedicated and effective professional realtor.

We had an AMAZING experience with Joann Samelko.

My husband and I bought our first home with Joann.  We bought it while we were living in another city and had to do a lot of commuting and odd hours of work with her.  She was nothing but accommodating.  She was always extremely prepared with information for us, handouts printed, and a route for viewings mapped out and efficient.  She was SO flexible and patient with us as we had lot of different wants/must haves.  She was also very honest about things that she felt in house that would be a negative or positive.  I never felt that she was pushing us to buy anything and she was always kind and available.  

I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone because we are VERY grateful for Joann with Northside Realty!  We will be calling her again if we ever sell our house in the future :)

- Christina and Nick Dunbar

Joann is very knowledgable & professional. She's always on time, very thorough, organized, and great with follow up. She sold our house in less than 1 month and is great with staging. She's the best agent we've worked with.

- Kandiss

We absolutely LOVED working with Joann Samelko! She loves what she does and does an exceptional job at it! My husband and I looked at over 40 houses before finding our perfect home. Joann stayed positive, supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. Joann listened to all our needs and was up front and honest throughout the whole process. We have referred her to family and friends who have all been just as pleased as we were!  Northside Realty is a great company with knowledgeable agents! I am confident that they are the BEST in the Raleigh area!

- Elizabeth and Tyler Hefner

“We love Joann and can't say enough positive things about her! She went above and beyond what you would expect from a realtor and her professionalism speaks volumes. We moved from another state so we weren't familiar with the area. Joann not only showed us homes in multiple locations she helped us get more acquainted with Raleigh and the surrounding cities. She also helped us once we moved by connecting us to local and reputable service providers. She is well connected and knows Raleigh and the surrounding cities very well. We are so fortunate to have found her and highly recommend Joann to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. You will not find anyone in this market better!”

- Amanda Pinckney

“Joann Samelko the most professional realtor I have ever worked with. She was always well prepared, very responsive, and shared pertinent information that we needed to make the best decision possible. She was the only realtor that truly listened to our requirements and then worked hard to help us find the right home that met our needs. Joann is also very knowledgeable about the real estate process, the Raleigh NC area, and local market comps. She also went above and beyond to connect us with other reputable service providers in the area (e.g., painters, home inspectors, engineers, etc.). I would highly recommend Joann; she is very thorough, patient, kind, and an overall great realtor.”

- Carol Gillespie

“Joann was our realtor when purchasing a new home. The whole process was very enjoyable and easy for us. We were very impressed with Joann and the questions she asked on our behalf (historical property taxes, inspections, codes, building & deck permits, etc.), she really knows her stuff! She is extremely organized and detail oriented catching little mistakes in paperwork and following up on every question we had. We would 100% recommend Joann to anyone looking for a house in any part of Raleigh, she's helped many of our friends find/sell houses all over Raleigh. Thanks Joann, for all you hard work!”

- Cheryl Gregory

“Joann is an outstanding Agent. I have sold and bought homes over past 40 years and She is one of the very best. And She works hard to earn your trust. She has great skills on selling and buying homes.”

- James Blackburn

“Joann was wonderful! She was very professional and always presented our options in great detail. She was very responsive to my calls and emails. She prepared excellent information on other listings to help us determine a list price. She worked tirelessly with the buying agent to negotiate the final sale. I would definitely recommend Joann to anyone buying or selling a house!”

- Jessica Biggerstaff

“I first used Joann as a buyer's agent when I purchased my current home. She came highly recommended to me by other friends who had used her. Now I've enlisted her services again to sell my home and help me find another. In my opinion, Joann just goes above and beyond. Her careful details really make her listings stand out from those of other agents. Whenever I have a question, she's not only knowledgeable, but very prompt in her responses. I trust her and highly value her input. Additionally, I would say that I am a customer with a tight budget. Joann always keeps my budget in mind and tries to keep costs down for me. While I'm certain that there are a lot of buyers and sellers she's helped that have a much higher budget than me, I feel like I am treated as if I am just as important as customers buying/selling luxury homes. If what you want is years of solid experience, attention to detail, and an extremely high level of service--choose Joann!”

Joann Samelko helped us sell one home and buy two homes over the years. She is determined, persistent, diligent, and professional. She really knows how to do it. We could have not been as successful without her.”

- Kempton (Sandy) Smith

”Joann worked with us from the time, 6 years ago, when we were trying to decide where to retire to from N. Virginia. Joann never stopped sending us homes to view even though were several years out from actually moving. This helped us get a realistic handle on the market here in the Raleigh area. When we came down to seriously look, she spent 3 days carting us around. She was very professional but also warm and caring. Her advice was always spot on and we could have not been successful in building our home without her. I highly recommend her”                                                                                            

- Eileen Murray

“Joann Samelko is the consummate professional real estate agent. Over the past few years she sold two homes for us, both of which sold within one to two weeks! Her advice as to a fair market price, negotiating the final sale price, and even how she advertised and marketed the properties was right on target. In addition to selling houses, Joann was also our agent for the purchase of homes in Raleigh. She worked tirelessly to find just the right homes for us to consider and then looked out for our best interests every step of the way through closing and even after!”

- Ellen Caplan

“Joann was great to work with. She was very knowledgeable. She provided good service -- honest, objective points of view. There was no pressure. I would for sure work with Joann again.”
