    Our Team

    Joanne Curtin

    Team Lead

    License Number: 242987

    The Joanne Curtin Real Estate Network was started and continues to be operated by Joanne Curtin, along with husband and business partner, Tom. Early into her professional career, Joanne knew work could be more than just a “job,” and took proactive action to learn about investment and wealth building. After reading the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, she made the bold decision to leave her teaching post and move into the real estate business in 2001. Soon after, she joined Keller Williams and was immediately surrounded by dozens of agents that were “thinking big” about their careers as a business, not just a real estate transaction. With the help of her real estate coach and her passion to build wealth, she earned the opportunity to co-own the Keller Williams Realty Consultants Roswell Market Center after just two years with the company. She’s since grown her portfolio to include several investment homes and a commercial property. She also leads The Joanne Curtin Real Estate Network, a top-producing team in the Southeast that consistently sells more than 150 homes each year. Through her team, Joanne is able to continue her passion for education, training and professional development to her agents. Never one to stop learning, Joanne continues to attend sessions and training, is a member of the coveted Gary Keller's top 100 Mastermind group and a certified Quantum Leap instructor. Originally from Dalton, Joanne resides in Milton with her husband and business partner, Tom, and their two children. When Joanne isn’t out selling or learning new real estate technology, she is teaching and consulting with others or learning new ways to wealth build. And Joanne loves to create family photo albums! As well as share great pictures of homes with her community to inspire and enjoy.
