Joan Revell

Joan has lived in Virginia Beach for nearly 30 years after returning from seven years in Northern Virginia. Finding a career in real estate is a path Joan started in her early teens. Her mother and stepfather worked with a builder from the time she was young. She can remember sitting in the middle of the family room floor sorting index cards with their clients names and an outline of the type of home they were looking. She would try to match the index cards service with small photos of homes and descriptions supplied by the MLS. Joan has been involved with just about every aspect of real estate from doing loan processing for a savings and loan in the early 80s to working as a real estate paralegal doing closings for residential, commercial, and construction loans. While studying for a paralegal degree she learned to do title searches on properties and clear title problems in order to get transactions to closing.

When her daughter left to attend college, she decided to get a real estate license at the urging of several agents she had worked with over the years. Thus begun her path to a business she is quite passionate about. Working with Mike Gingerich over the past eight years has been a growing and learning process. They began working together while Mike was building mid-level homes in Suffolk, Virginia. From there, they moved to a concentration on custom homes in Hampton Roads premier communities: Edinburgh and Edinburgh Meadows in Chesapeake, Nansemond River Estates and the Creeks of Nansemond River in Suffolk, and North Shore at Ridgely Manor in Virginia Beach. As a preferred builder with Rose & Womble Realty, Mike has the opportunity to build in some of the best communities in Hampton Roads. 

Joan has two great kids, Summer and Sean, and three dogs, Molly, Sydney, and Taz. Her interests include reading and attending the Norfolk Little Theatre and the Virginia Pops Symphony. She also enjoys the Norfolk Forum, which brings excellent speakers to our area. Contrary to what my Boston-residing daughter believes there is a plenty going on in Hampton Roads!
