Hello Joanne,

Just taking a few minutes to say Thank you for validating the things that I do (and must continue to do) for future success. It occurred to me that this SRS designation course was about LISTing properties. Well, I guess I’m on the right path as I believe in LISTS.

Be Blessed.


I have spent the whole day with Instructor, Joanne Chando. This morning she has totally covered AVMs and RVMs and Showing Consumers the Difference. So comprehensive in the valuation methods in evaluating home values. I truly appreciate the RPR (Realtor Property Resource) which uses RVM. This afternoon my brain is exploding as I try to take in all her instructions on Taxes and Money.

-Cynthia Roberts

Just wanted to say thank you for a very exciting learning experience at the NEFAR GRI classes.

Joanne was amazing at getting our Leadership Team acquainted quickly and working together. Motivation was key and she certainly instilled that in us all. Joanne’s presentation is fun and interactive, while still being very informative. Our entire team thoroughly enjoyed having her as our keynote speaker!

Joanne you are a great speaker and entertainer. The topic was interesting and by including comedy throughout made it fun the listen to and better for retention. It was a joy to have you. We heard many great responses from our members that they enjoyed your presentation. Bravo.

-Ginny Nobbe, WCR LCP Bonita-Estero

Hi Joanne,

I was in your class on Mon/Tues and I wanted to tell you what a delight you are not only as a teacher but as a person. I thoroughly enjoyed your class. You are a wealth of knowledge.
I spoke with you about what classes to take as a “newbie.” I’ve been a professional singer/actress my whole life and I really appreciated the energy, the inflection and the strength in your voice and all of the examples you gave that made the class come to life.
-Brandi C.

Hi Joanne, I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help and guidance the past couple of days in the GRI 102 class. I really enjoyed your teaching style and all of the advice and tips you shared with us. I really look forward to attending another one of your classes in the near future and hopefully we can do business some day! Thanks again!
—Raina W.

Hi Joanne,
It was a pleasure to be in your class.
I enjoyed the class very much, it had been a while since I had been in a classroom setting, and you made it worth my while.  I want to continue classes. In fact I have the book out now, reviewing and making notes as you got me in the mood to continue on ~ go forward! Looking forward to seeing you in another class soon. All the best, and keep the jewels flowing!!!!

I recently attended Joanne Chando’s Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) class sponsored by the National Association of REALTORS in West Palm Beach, FL. I found Joanne to be very nice, professional, engaging, funny and inspiring. After being in the business for 20+ years I thought I knew it all but I was wrong! I learned a lot of valuable and refreshing selling & marketing techniques that I’ll be applying to my own brokerage company. Thank you Joanne for making learning fun again!

Good evening Joanne, Great class! Thank you: this is exactly the information I was looking for to help me start my career as a global REALTOR. Thank you very much.

—J. Daal

Joanne, I thoroughly enjoyed today’s ‘Global Real Estate Local Markets’ Course, & found it very enlightening, & well presented. Much appreciated, Looking forward to the next Class tomorrow,


Mrs. Chando,
I attended your GRI 201 this week. I left your class knowing so much more than when I walk in. One thing for sure is sticking with me. I had made the mistake of leaving behind my listing material with two customers. I was not sure what to do after the presentation , You helped me realize that I should have gathered everything together and walked out the door . Next time, I will do just that. Thank You for that guidance.


Joanne, Thank you for making the last 2 days enjoyable as well as informative! I would appreciate a copy of the documents you mentioned in class!
– John

Joanne, I have certainly enjoyed your class and your teaching knowledge and style.
I am sending this as a reminder to send me the many documents you were kind enough to quote in class.
Thanks in advance!!

Dear Joanne, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for coming out to Stuart to teach the GRI 102 course. It was a great session and very helpful for my (our) business planning. I hope if you are ever this way we can meet again for lunch or coffee! I am grateful for your motivation! Many Thanks

Joanne, your humor, experience, knowledge and yes stories…priceless!
—Cindy M.

Joanne, I appreciate your enthusiasm while teaching our class!
—Brenda H.

Dear Joanne, I just wanted to take some time to express how much I enjoyed taking the GRI 102 course this week. You did a great job facilitating and keeping the course material interesting. Again, thank you for your time, patience, and making the subject interesting. Looking forward to attending your next GRI course!
—Santos R.

Joanne, thank you for making our two days together so interesting and enjoyable. It is a delight to pay for a course and actually have someone “teach” instead of read from a textbook. I really appreciate you sharing your knowledge with us and inspiring us (me) to be the best Realtor we (I) can be! I know you are compensated for teaching these classes, but you aren’t compensated for your enthusiasm, you gave that to us free of charge. Thank you very much!!! I look forward to participating in more courses that you teach!
—Tara S.

Joanne, I would like to thank you for a very insightful and entertaining GRI class last week in Jacksonville. Your teaching style is excellent and your sense of humor is infectious. Thank you for a very useful educational experience.
—Maarten G.

Joanne, I wanted to thank you for two GREAT days of classes last week. First time in 13+ years in real estate that I can say that I truly enjoyed the classes and the instructor. You have a super personality and wouldn’t change a thing on how you teach. Look forward to working with you. Thanks for a great two days of class.
—Cindy A.

Good afternoon Joanne, I just wanted to share the news that I passed my real estate broker exam this morning in Fort Lauderdale. I am headed back to Fort Myers now with a big smile on my face!  It is a big step but it’ll be many years before I gain the experience that you have!  You are truly an inspiration!
—Dan A.

Hi Joanne, thank you again for a great educational experience during the last two days in GRI 201 in Bonita Springs.  Whatever my score turns out to be, I still learned some invaluable information!  I hope our paths cross again and look for ward to the next class, whatever that may be.
—Irene M.

Thank You Joanne, I appreciate you sharing your wealth of information!
—Julie C.

Dear Joanne, I have never enjoyed a taking a class in Real Estate as much as I enjoyed yours. Your sense of humor was a shining light. I am pleased I decided to do the course. Take care and I hope we cross paths again. Your agents are very lucky to have you as their Broker!
—Sylvia W.

Dearest Joanne, first off, thank you kindly for the most enjoyable real estate class I’ve ever taken. We were well-educated while having fun and actually retaining the information!
—Suzy M.

Thanks for making GRI 302 understandable. I am a ‘Late in life’ entrant to the Real Estate realm and wondered if i would be able to effectively learn ‘The Business’. Inspirational instructors like you make the challenge a simple ‘low bar’ hurdle rather than a mountain.

—John M.
