-- About Joni --
Joni relocated to Charleston in 2007 with her husband after twelve moves, from coast to coast. They spent twenty years in Delaware and three and a half years abroad in London, England. With a long time commitment to historic preservation, and a clear understanding of the relationship between community preservation and property values, it was natural for the Hazeltons to call Charleston home.
Service on the board of numerous Junior Leagues, membership in the Colonial Dames of America, and representing Delaware on the Board of Advisors of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, contributed to her passion and commitment to community and preservation. Since moving to Charleston, Joni has become actively involved as a volunteer in the Charleston community. She has served for five years on the Antiques Show Preview Committee for Historic Charleston Foundation and has become an active member of the Garden Club of Charleston. She served on the House and Garden Tours Committee for the Garden Club and served on the board of the Charleston Horticultural Society. Joni is also very involved in local civic matters and is currently a board member of the Charlestowne Neighborhood Association.
With a keen interest in research and a background in marketing and communications she brings enthusiasm, perseverance and attention to detail that enables her to drive negotiations forward, while providing professional and discreet customer service to successful closings. She is keenly aware that delivering the very best customer service while providing total confidentiality for her clients is an essential part of her job. Finding the right property for the right price is a full time job. And it is a job she happens to love.
Best said by one of her clients:
"We highly recommend Joni for a buyer who requires a personable, hard working, dedicated professional for a realtor. She is passionate about her
work and is always extremely thorough and prepared. Most importantly, she eats, lives, and breathes Charleston. This with her love of real estate is a winning combination." -Gary & Carolyn, New Jersey
"Joan went above and beyond in the recent sale of my property. She did a fantastic job! She is lovely to work with and gives it her all. She was an excellent guide through this process. I highly recommend Joan Hazelton if you are looking for an excellent agent in Charleston."
"Joni handled both our sale of one property, even hosting a showing for agents over the holidays, and our purchase of another one. She was fast on her feet, walked us through the legalities and kept her cool all the while. The first property sold at our asking price within a week. We were very impressed with Joni's knowledge of the Charleston market, her quick decisions when necessary, and her foresight in getting us a longer contingency period with our purchase. This provided us with a stress-free transition."
Anne and Bill, One Vendue Range
"Joni recently sold our Condo south of Broad, I could not have been happier with the way she worked with us. Great communication, great follow up- I don't remember ever having to ping her twice for a question or curiosity , great access (even while on vacation in France), and attention to detail (marketing material, newspapers, open houses, internal emails to other agents). Helped us understand the process and had tremendous patience during a slow period in Charleston home sales South of Broad. She handled the complexity of our condo sale like a true professional (another condo was contingent on our sale and an HOA was involved) I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell a home in this area. And I would hire her again whether buying or selling."
