JoAnn Levine said, “The best part of my job is when a property closes, whether buying or selling, and seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces. One example is when I had a family meet me at the home they had just purchased. They hadn’t told their children about the purchase. The kids came running out of the car, screaming and crying, asking, ‘Is this really our house?’ It made me feel like I’d just won the lottery.”
