Joann Lammons is a native New Orleanian who grew up in a real estate family. Some of her earliest memories are of her parents, independent real estate brokers, negotiating contracts and attending open houses. That early exposure was influential, and since joining Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty in 1999 as a recognized top producer, Joann has been included in the coveted Circle of Excellence every year.
Highly motivated and technologically sophisticated, Joann asserts that technology distinguishes serious agents. “I make it a point to take at least one technology update class a year along with my MCE,” she states. Joann seeks a balance of buyers and sellers, believing this equips her with insight and understanding of both sides and allows “not only successful closings but happy ones.”
Relocation clients are a particular strength for Joann, whose husband is a 30-year energy company executive. She works hard to ensure smooth transitions for transferees and their families, particularly into the Memorial area, where she is a long-time resident, and the Energy and Western Corridors. Joann also enjoys significant business in Galveston’s West Beach where her family has a second home.
In addition to membership in the Circle of Excellence and Hall of Fame, Joann has received a number of other MTP awards for outstanding production including Most Closed Listings 2008, Most Closed Buyers 2006; Most Outgoing Referrals 2003, 2004, 2007; Most Transactions 2001, 2004; Top Salesperson June, 2004, September, 2010; and Listing Leader July, 2002, April 2010, and June 2010.
Joann is fluent in Spanish and holds a bachelor’s degree in conversational Spanish and Spanish literature from Tulane University. Her studies included a year abroad at the University of Madrid. She holds a Master of International Management from the American Graduate School of International management (Thunderbird University) in Glendale, Arizona.
A long time resident of the Memorial area, Joann has lived in the Cayman Islands and Europe. She is married and the mother of two grown children. Over the years, she has been an active volunteer with Frostwood and Bunker Hill Elementary Schools, Memorial Middle and Memorial High schools, Spring Branch Independent School District activities, St. Cecilia Catholic Church, Fonn Villas Home Owners Association, VICTORY/American Cancer Society, and neighborhood sports groups. Joann’s interests include scuba diving, cruising and world travel.
