Meet the Broker of Advantage Realty...  

Joanne L. Gardiner is a licensed real estate broker in California. Her license number is 00822285. She entered the real estate industry in 1965 as a part-time agent while attending college. After two years it became clear Joanne preferred helping people sell and buy real estate more than pursuing a degree in architecture.

Since those early days, Joanne has sold thousands of homes and other types of real estate including duplexes, multiple unit apartment complexes, and special use properties such as churches and mobile home parks. She also has sold hundreds of mobile homes and manufactured homes and is also licensed to sell brand new manufactured homes for ARM Homes, a custom mobile home dealer serving most San Francisco bay area communities.. Her Department of Housing and Community Development Occupational License Number is SP1178511

Joanne is dedicated to sharing her knowledge and experience with buyers and sellers to achieve the very best results for them regardless of the type of property they want to buy or sell. In recent years with the financing and employment problems affecting every segment of society she has seen a paradigm shift in the real estate industry and continually adapts to the ever changing real estate industry for the benefit of her clients. While other agents have left real estate, Joanne has remained a steadfast top producer through her dedication and hard work.

For information on buying or selling real estate in the San Francisco Bay Area, or to talk confidentially about your situation, please pick up the phone now and call Joanne on her cell phone: 510-589-4794.

Get The Scoop on Joanne...  

The early years...

Joanne, a veteran real estate professional, has had houses on her mind most of her life.  When she was a little girl in the 1950's she busied herself by drawing on brown paper bags.  One of her drawings was a floor plan, an outrageous design for the time considering that most houses consisted of two bedrooms and one bath.  Her floor plan featured three bedrooms: a parents bedroom, a boys bedroom and a girls bedroom; Two bathrooms: a parents bathroom and a kids bathroom; and two living rooms: an adults living room and a kids living room; and a garage attached to the house "so nobody gets wet in the winter."

Years later that design became the standard for most home builders in the nation, what we in the real estate industry call a 3/2/2/FR. In Non-Realtor language it means: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 2 car garage and a family room.

Professional Philosophy...
The core of Joanne's business philosophy is the spirit of the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you.

Joanne believes strongly in the traditional values of integrity, professionalism and accountability.

Dedicated to excellence, Joanne helps to keep her clients on the cutting edge of today's real estate market. This provides clients an advantage over the ever changing and always challenging market conditions.
