Five Star Professional is pleased to announce Joan Parkinson, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, has been chosen as one of Sarasota’s Five Star Real Estate Agents for 2016.

Five Star Professional partnered with Sarasota magazine to recognize a select group of Sarasota-area real estate agents who provide quality services to their clients. Less than 6 percent of real estate agents in the area were selected. Joan is featured, along with other award winners, in a special section of the April issue.

“Real estate has been my career and passion for over 30 years. Receiving the Five Star Real Estate Agent award for seven consecutive years is a great honor. I wish to thank all my clients who helped me achieve this award. I have honed my skills in marketing, negotiating and professional real estate service in Illinois, Connecticut and now Florida, where I have lived and worked in Sarasota for the past 19 years,” says Joan.

The Five Star Real Estate Agent award program is the largest and most widely published real estate agent award program in North America. Agents are measured using an objective, in-depth research methodology with significant focus on customer feedback and overall satisfaction.

“My in-depth knowledge and understanding of Sarasota’s real estate market allows me to provide superior service to my clients when making one of the biggest decisions in their lifetime — the purchase or sale of their personal residence or investment property. My enthusiasm, drive for excellence and communication skills are appreciated by the many clients who return to me and refer me to their friends and acquaintances,” states Joan.

“Five Star Professional’s research is extensive, with more than 10 million consumers, peers and other stakeholders contacted each year. We are relentless in our efforts to identify those professionals with the utmost standard of excellence,” says Jonathan Wesser, Research Director, Five Star Professional.
