Joan Lurie Farb has practiced as an independent real estate broker in the Los Angeles area for over thirty-five years. During this time, she has represented thousands of buyers and sellers in their purchase and sale transactions. She obtained her broker’s license in January, 1985 and has owned and operated her own real estate brokerage firm ever since. This has required a seven days per week commitment, and has allowed her to experience most every type of real estate climate imaginable.

For nearly eight years prior to becoming a licensed California Real Estate Broker, Joan practiced as a Certified Public Accountant. She prides herself on having an extensive business background and the ability to handle even the most complicated transactions. Joan’s awareness of the tax issues and intricacies involved in successfully closing real estate transactions is an example of the unique and special skills set that she brings to her clients.

Joan attributes her success in the real estate business, even during some very challenging markets, to always working very hard to obtain the very best results for her clients. Real estate brokerage is truly a personal service business. In an environment where there are so many real estate professionals to choose from, it is of ultimate importance to be distinguished as being diligent, experienced, energetic, creative, and having a proven track record. Happily, after over thirty-five years in business, almost all of her new business comes from previous clients and personal referrals. Joan is proud that her client base continues to affirm that she is tireless in her pursuit of excellent results. As a testament to her honesty and credibility, she is often called upon by attorneys and bankruptcy trustees to assist with valuations and to give expert testimony in court.

A personal meeting with Joan will confirm that she has the tools to get the job done, and derives great pleasure in achieving, if not exceeding, her clients’ expectations.
