"Joanne and her team were absolutely terrific to deal with. Jo is honest and had a genuine passion to get the best result for us. She kept us updated throughout the campaign with regular calls and emails and provided us with all the relevant information to make a sound decision come auction day. We could not fault the marketing campaign and the audience reached was far and wide, with the eventual buyer of our home coming from outside the area."
With a career spanning more than 25 years, few can match Joanne’s experience, expertise and depth of knowledge in all aspects of real estate sales, auctioneering and property management. Joanne is a true Hobson’s Bay local in every sense, having grown up in Altona, going to school in Newport, and working in nearby Yarraville. After studying Property at RMIT, Joanne joined her first real estate agency at 18 years of age and became a director at the age of 27 years old. It is the winning combination of skill, talent and inside knowledge, plus her desire to be part of something fresh, that saw her join the RT Edgar Williamstown team, with current property owners and new residents turning to her for advice and local guidance. As well as helping clients list their homes for sale and negotiate the best outcomes for all, Joanne’s instinctive sense of discipline and organisation extends to her keen interest in ballet and jazz, as well as playing the piano and trombone.

RT Edgar (specifically Joanne Royston) was one of three agents that I was considering when preparing to sell my house. The proposal put to me was professional and in line with my plans, including the sell price. I decided to go with Joanne after she contacted me while she was on an overseas family holiday as I believed someone who worked hard to get my business would work as hard after I had signed up. I was not disappointed and I felt well informed during the marketing and ultimately got the price I was after.

"We heard a lot of great things about Joanne prior to appointing her and she exceeded all our expectations and we were ecstatic with our result. I would not hesitate in recommending Joanne and would be more than happy to provide a verbal reference if requested."

“We simply cannot praise Joanne and her team enough for the excellent result. Joanne depth of experience is easily her greatest strength. She will not over promise in order to obtain your business. She provided a very accurate assessment of the current local market, and she was honest about the strength and weakness of our property and provide us invaluable advices in how to prepare the house ready for the sale campaign. Her recommendation of the styling made our house so appealing. We were in constant communication with her team in regard to the progress of the campaign and we trusted her decision to expand the marketing which helped secure a late inspection which added an extra bidder on auction day which no doubt help to push the final price a bit more.”
