Joan's Bio

I specialize in assisting clients with buying and selling residential property in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia. The property can be a small condominium, a very large single family home, or anything in between. I will assist you in getting financing. I will coordinate all inspections, appraisals, and settlement services to make your transaction as smooth as possible. I will keep you informed every step of the way. In addition to working with individuals and families, I have also sold numerous properties for the Embassy of Canada.

I grew up in Iowa and came to Northern Virginia after graduating from Iowa State University. My first job was working for my Congressman. Over the years in Northern Virginia, I worked in several other offices on Capitol Hill, in the private sector, and in the Federal Government. I have my M.A. from Marymount University in Arlington. I enjoy travel, theater, cooking, yoga, and bridge. I volunteer at the Arlington Free Clinic, serve in several capacities at Fairlington United Methodist Church in Alexandria, I'm a member of PEO, and I knit chemo caps. I am married to Donald Edwards; I have three step-sons and one grandson.
