Joanie was absolutely wonderful in the sale of our home

Bob and Charlott

Joanie made our move easy and efficient.

She is the best agent we have ever worked with.


I would highly recommend Team Rish.

Joan Rish is a very competent real estate professional. I was very new to the whole process of searching and purchasing a home. I am a widow, and downsizing and she was very understanding with my numerous questions. She always responded to my phone calls and texts in a timely manner. Joanie will be putting my existing home up for sale in a few weeks and I feel confident that I will just as happy with that process as I was with my new home purchase.

Evelyn Webb

Joanie was referred to me by a friend and I was thrilled.

I have already referred her out and hope to work with her again in the future.


Joanie was very helpful, working most of this process via long distance.

We both really enjoyed working with her.

Brandy & Jason

Joanie Rish was excellent!

She made herself available each time we were able to travel to San Antonio to look for a house.


Team Rish has exceeded my expectations for assistance is all my real estate needs - from selling a home to purchasing a home.

Currently working with Joanie Rush on a new home purchase. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff So far in all my years of dealing with a variety of realtors. Team Rish is the best .


Joanie helped us sell our home in Lakehills in 2008.

The activity was great and advertising good. We secured a buyer. She also worked with us on buying our new home. Then the unexpected happened, the title company we were dealing with filed bankruptcy. This happened 30 minutes after our buyers had wired their funds. Needless to say this hit everyone with a tailspin. Joanie worked with everyone to make sure the sale stayed and we closed in a timely manner. Truly a professional in her field. We wish her all the success in the world. You can certainly trust her to keep your best interest.

Paul and Myra Chevalier

Joanie Rish was very attentive to our buying and selling needs and very professional.

She helped us when buying our second home, she advised, listened, and provided good insight regarding best areas detailed to our needs. Also, sold our home very quickly for a great price!

Hope Ruiz

Joanie Rish sold our home for the price asked.

She provided us with marketing information, how to present our home, confidence and full support for a successful sale. In our opinion she is a top choice professional agent with years of experience for a rewarding move.

Charles and Ida Wackes

-It is a pleasure doing business with Joanie.

She was a great help to us--before and after closing--by giving us choices for an inspection and to get appliances removed/installed. And they were good people to work with, too. We liked Joanie so much, we asked her to sell our previous house--her knowledge and experience in the subdivision is second to none. She keeps us informed with weekly marketing and neighborhood updates, and is always available to answer any question--a true professional!

Debra Maple

Joanie surpassed all of our expectations and was outstanding through the entire process.

She made something that could have been troublesome very fun. She was great!

Matt and Angela

Joanie was great and a tremendous asset.


Joanie was there for me every step of the way and worked diligently to ensure I was able to close in time to welcome my child into our dream home.

She made great recommendations for all of my needs. Her experience definitely shows when it came to negotiating. Thanks to her availability, knowledge, and teamwork I was able to close in 30 days.


I've dealt with some agents where I felt like I missed the party on one or two occasions.

We would arrive at a new development and all the good deals or inventory were gone. Joanie is the best! Her team is professional, knowledgeable and patient. I wanted someone who is plugged into the market and knows of upcoming housing developments and get me in before the crowds. Joanie's' team specializes in just that finding the best deals long before most other agents do. Thank you Joanie.


A top shelf realtor in all aspects!

! She was involved with buying and selling the last three houses, not to mention setting up more viewings than I can count over the last 11 years!! You simply cannot go wrong!

Jeff Todd

We listed our home in San Antonio spring of 2014 and it sold by June.

We had not met Joanie before this listing but was very pleased working with her. Joanie had the interest, tools, and knowledge to list our home on various websites and would keep us updated about activity in our area. We really appreciated how well she worked with our buyer, and thru good advice from her, we were able to have an easy sell of our home. We no longer live in San Antonio, but we highly recommend Joanie to you as your realtor in buying or selling.

Brenda B.

A great real estate agent and very helpful individual.

She is head and shoulders above other agents we have had.

Fred & Sandra

Joanie always returned phone calls promptly, which I greatly appreciated.

Also, when we were indecisive about buying a new home, Joanie was very patient, yet informative, and not “pushy” in any way.

Carolyn & Pat

Joanie is very professional and made our buying and selling experience stress free.


Joanie is the best!

Professional, delightful, courteous- there are not enough positive adjectives to describe the superior experience we had with her. We have never had a more pleasurable real estate experience.

Candy & Jeff

I appreciate all the work Joanie put forth in the sale of my mother’s home.


Will ask Joanie to help with all future purchases and sales!


As a first time homebuyer I was very apprehensive and unsure about taking such a commitment.

Joanie "held my hand" the whole way and made me feel so comfortable! Thanks!


This was my first time to sell a home and Joanie made it a very easy, comfortable transition for me.

She was excellent in customer service and is a great asset to your company!


Joanie is exceptional.

We had a tough situation with a long distance sale and Joanie did a great job! We will be giving her name to anyone we know moving to San Antonio!

Earl and Jodi

I have bought two homes with Joanie Rish.

My first home I bought in 2007. Joanie was so helpful. She narrowed our search down and really knew what we were looking for. I found a home in one weekend. I just bought my second home in 2014. Joanie was able to help me with her financing team and was there with me every step of the way. She is very honest, straightforward. she know the San Antonio area and has an expert eye for properties. I know if i ever buy a home again I will alway give Joanie a call first.

John Hlebik

Joanie found us the exact floor plan, with all the options we desired, in the Hill Country Retreat.

We have been looking to purchase the right home in the community for the last two years. She even handled all the paperwork while we were traveling outside the country. She has provided excellent customer service and is always available when needed. She provides just the right support, without being overly pushy. She has access to excellent loan officers and is very knowledgeable about loan process. I have even recommended her to our daughter, who is moving here this summer.


Felt supported by Joanie throughout the transaction.

She is very patient and listens to what you want and does her best to get it for you. She is always available to answer any questions.


Joanie is an awesomely organized real estate agent with a sound knowledge of San Antonio (and surrounding areas) real estate market!

Our entire home purchase flew through without a hitch from the day we decided on it until we received the keys. Closing went perfectly (and quickly). Plus Joanie has a wealth of information on any contracted service a homebuyer could need. Based on long-term experience, she knows the area and was able to hone in on exactly what we were looking for in a home. In addition, Joanie is full of good ideas concerning renovations (and endless good cheer during the home buying process). We are so happy we purchased our new home through Team Rish!

Bradley Brimhall

Great educator and communicator.

Virtually held our hands through selling and buying our homes. Has multiple resources to assist with inspections, design and actual moving. Great to work with!


Not only did we buy our house through Joanie, our daughter and son-in law used her services, our son and daughter-in-law used her services, as well as our best friends.

When we decide to "down-size", there is no doubt that Joanie will be the first to know.


I used Joanie's services 11 years ago when relocating from Tampa to San Antonio for work.

The time came for me to relocate back to Tampa and I called Joanie to see if she remember me and she did...11 years later. From our first meeting she walked through my home and level set my expectations and explained her marketing strategy along with items I needed to do to get my home ready for sale. I received an offer in less than a week with several showings almost every day. Everything is set to close next week! She takes the time to go over the process in a caring and professional way. It doesn't feel like a formal business transaction with Joanie, it feels like you're doing business with a friend who has your best interest at heart. Thanks Joanie- if I move back, I will definitely call you!


Made our first time home buying relaxing and worry free.


Traci & David

Joanie is the best at what she does!

Sandy and Allen

Joanie helped us find our first home.

We knew little about the home buying experience and she guided us throughout the whole process. She was honest and stated her opinions on each house we saw; we knew what would be good for resale or what not to look for, thanks to her. Whenever we do decide to sell our starter home, we'll be looking for Joanie!

Stephanie Giardino

Joanie represented my father in law.

He was moving to Katy Tx. but was unsure when his new home would be completed. She found a buyer and negotiated a lease back from the buyer until my father in law could move. It was a win-win for both parties. I then asked her to represent my niece as a buyer's agent. Joanie found her a home and my niece will move in mid-July. What I liked about her was that she communicated very well by phone, text, or email. We were never in the dark. Thanks Joanie

James Wagner

Joanie helped make the sale of our home a very informative and smooth process.

We thank her for this.

Stacey & Tim

Fantastic service!

Thanks very much.


Joanie is the best realtor that we’ve ever worked with.

She went above and beyond her duties as a realtor to help us sell our house. We live out of state and did most of our communicating via e-mail and Joanie would get a response back to our questions w/in minutes. Thank you Joanie for everything you did to help us sell our house.

Mike and Jenni

I have been looking for a home for years.

Finally, I found one. It had multiple offers and the Rish team negotiated a deal. I got the house! Selling my old house went fast. MLS description of house was very alluring.


My husband and I have just purchased our first ever home with the help of Lisa Pirolo.

She went above and beyond to help us and we are so glad we had her as our agent and not somebody else. We anticipated our house shopping experience to be stressful and overwhelming but we have had a wonderful experience with Lisa. She arranged for us to see all the houses we wanted to see, responded to any calls, texts or emails we sent her immediately and provided us with all the information we could possibly need on each property. When we finally found our perfect home she joined us for the inspection to make sure we were given all the information about the house and nothing was missed. For anybody looking for a house, especially a young, clueless couple like my husband and I, I would strongly recommend going with Team Rish. Both Lisa Pirolo and Joanie Rish are amazingly helpful and knowledgeable in their field and can find you the perfect home you've been looking for.

Lizzy Thorton

I have bought and sold my home through Joanie and find her to be both professional and personable.

I always felt she was looking out for my best interest.


I’ve used Joanie 3 times now and have recommended her to friends!

She is easy to talk to and trustworthy.


I have used Joanie now for 3 homes.

I like how she is down to earth and easy to relate to. She is very reliable, knowledgeable, accessible and is always on time.


Joanie Rish is the most qualified and personable real estate agent my husband and I have ever worked with when purchasing a home.

She never gave up on us, even though it took us many trips to San Antonio to find the perfect house for us. She is extremely knowledgeable of the San Antonio market, and has numerous connections in her field to facilitate quick responses to all of our many inquiries. When it came time to make an offer, she was expeditious in negotiating between us and the seller, and brought up several issues we would not have considered on our own. We truly appreciated her helpfulness, not just in the showing process, but also in assisting us through the closing process. Now, when we meet someone looking for a home, my husband and I quickly without any hesitation recommend Joanie. She's the best of the best!

Ada Storms

I would like to say my experience with Team Rish has been a good one.

Team Rish has the experience and knowledge to take care of any real estate needs. I have used Team Rish up to four times now and every experience has run smoothly. All I can say is if I have the need for any future real estate needs I will definitely use Team Rish.

Brian Visosky

Even in these tough selling times Joanie did a great job of marketing our home.

We enjoyed her efforts and are very happy the way it turned out!

Dale and Janet

We had complete, total trust working with Joanie and would be happy to use her again for our next home search!

She provided solid recommendations in a tight market and we got the house we wanted most with her help!


I feel I can trust Joanie - she always has me in her best interest.


We bought a home from Joanie, sold a home with Joanie, and right now my mother-in-law is selling her home with Joanie.

Three houses and we did not have any trouble. I would recommend Joanie with my highest regards. I think you are very lucky to have such a professional on your team.
