Johnette Barham is a self-proclaimed lover of all things real estate, having been bitten by the real estate bug more than 10 years ago with the purchase of her first fixer-upper investment property. Today as a Realtor®, she continues to fuel this passion by helping buyers, sellers, and investors navigate real estate transactions and achieve their goals.
She's a Michigan native and 10 year resident of the DMV who prides herself most on earning the trust of her clients by being available, responsive, and bringing value. The best praise she's received from a client was 'You are the best and I'm so happy!' Helping her clients experience the joy of getting an outcome that exceeds their expectations drives everything Johnette does.
Johnette's professional background includes sales and project management in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries, and she possesses an MBA in International Business from George Washington University. As a fun fact, she spent a brief period of her early career as a celebrity personal assistant and assistant road manager to the legendary late Aretha Franklin, which she credits for her current ability to remain calm and focused with the most exacting clients.
She is known for her integrity, responsiveness, high-tech marketing techniques, and is a skilled negotiator that keeps a laser focus on the needs of her clients. Johnette considers it her obligation to educate her clients throughout every step of the process and to arm them with the most relevant information to make the best decisions, even if it means telling them things they might not want to hear.
During her free time, Johnette can usually be found trying out new restaurants, hanging out at her favorite coffee shops, or spending time with her South African Boerboel, Xhosa.
