The Curtin Team was started and continues to be operated by Joanne Curtin, along with husband and business partner, Tom.
Joanne started her career as an Elementary school teacher. Early into her teaching career, Joanne became curious about investing and building wealth. After reading the Rich Dad, Poor Dad series, she made the bold decision to leave her teaching post and move into the real estate business. Soon after, she joined Keller Williams with agents thinking big about their careers.
The Curtin Team began with Joanne selling houses in North Atlanta in 2001 and with husband Tom, they grew it into a team. From it’s start, the Team has over $500 million in home sales volume and 1700 clients served. Growing a real estate team grew into launching a brokerage office. Joanne and Tom earned the opportunity to co-own the Keller Williams Realty Consultants Roswell Market Center after just one year with the company. That eventually grew into a mega agent team office location in the heart of their local town.
In 2018, Joanne co-founded Curtin Team Cares, a non-profit organization, as a way to assist the community in times of need. This passion for helping her local neighborhoods drives the mission to provide local support when it’s needed most and give back in her community.
Joanne is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a Masters in Education. She continues her teaching in the real estate community. Originally from Dalton, Georgia Joanne resides with Tom, their two beautiful children and dogs Fluff and Charlie in Milton.
