About

DRE : 01358847 and 01358847 

JB Real Estate & Investment, Inc. was established in January 2011 by Joanne Brown Broker/CEO, located in Torrance, California. JB Real Estate & Investment is a dynamic, multifaceted, and state of the art computer savvy real estate company specializing in buying, selling, and property management. We are experts in probate sales. We work with clients looking to buy, sell or invest in real estate. We have professional knowledge, education, experience, and negotiating skills in working with REO’s, short sales, foreclosures, and investment properties. We have national and local designations working with seniors (SRES- Senior Real Estate Specialist) – with our primary emphasis on Cities within the South Bay “Southwestern” Region of Los Angeles and LA/ Westside, Gardena, Torrance, Inglewood, Hawthorne, Carson, Compton, and surrounding cities.

Residential-Single Family – Our residential single family services connect buyers with sellers every day, and we do it with professionalism and a total dedication to our clients. This property type is the majority of our market transactions, but by far not the only one in which we have expertise.

Condominiums – While condominiums are residential, they’re a very different market focus, and we have experts in evaluating condos and helping buyers and sellers to cope with the special financing and homeowner concerns for this property type.

Multi-family – Investors are great clients for Joanne Brown and Team. Multi-family properties are a very unique market. The detailed return on investment and valuation calculations investors need to evaluate properties for rental are second nature to us.

Commercial – Whether it’s a shopping mall, a small office building, or a restaurant space, we’re commercial property specialists. Contact us for your commercial property needs in the Gardena/ Torrance real estate markets.

Vacant Land – Land is a very special property class. It’s relatively easy to show a gourmet cook a wonderful commercial kitchen in a home and see their eyes light up. It’s more of a challenge to help a buyer or seller to realize the potential in a piece of land. We’re the best at it in the Gardena/ Torrance real estate markets.

Call us at 888-751-0086 or email us to start a discussion of your needs. Or, fill out our quick form to tell us your property interest types and give us an overview of your needs.

The first thing people notice about Joanne is her warm, friendly smile, but what impresses them is her intellect and composure.  Her unshakeable calm comes from the confidence of knowing that she can handle the most challenging transactions, even in the most stressful of situations.

Joanne was born in Los Angeles and was raised in the Southbay/Los Angeles County area.  Before beginning her real estate career in 2002, she was a business owner.  Today the skills and business acumen she acquired as a successful businesswoman, translate into peace of mind for her clients.  Joanne helps her clients through challenging and emotional transactions, such as probate sale, or a senior needing to downsize or relocate and leave a much beloved, long-time family home.

It’s hard to say what Joanne’s greatest business attributes are as her clients laud her for her many; listening, mediating, negotiation, and marketing skills.

Her ethos is simple: listen to the needs of her client, whether a buyer or seller, know the Los Angeles market better than anyone, and guide everyone through the real estate process to attain the most favorable outcome with the least amount of anxiety.

To provide her clients with knowledgeable service, Joanne has amassed an impressive portfolio of professional designations: GRI, (Graduate REALTOR Institute), SRES (Seniors Real Estate Specialist), SFR (Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource) to name a few, and she is a certified Mediation expert from Pepperdine University/Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution.

Joanne’s clients are incredibly loyal to her because they trust her to do whatever it takes to make their real estate transaction close – no matter how complicated the situation. Her easy-going personality is evident but make no mistake; she’s a fierce advocate for her clients treating them with empathy and compassion, but always with a focus on the issue at hand. She won’t give up on a problem until she has explored every avenue, and found the best solution.

Joanne gets her strength from her faith. And, although her parents are no longer with her today, she credits them with instilling in her a servants’ heart and the confidence and independence to embrace what gives her joy.  She makes gift baskets for the homeless on Valentines’ Day, Easter baskets for at-need kids in care, and sponsors a mom/son dance as an outreach project for her church.  She keeps her promises too, and she still takes care of her mom’s dog Hersey who keeps her joyful.

Seeing the smile on her client’s faces at the close of a successful transaction also gives her joy, and it’s authentic – she truly loves her real estate career and being able to help people experience the joy of homeownership.

What Clients Are Saying

Joanne Brown is very knowledgeable and patient. Joanne Brown literally went above and way beyond to get our deal closed. I would recommend her professional service is 100%, she scores an A+.

Rosalind Ellis

Joanne was very professional and very detailed oriented with the sale of our home. She was always available if we needed her and went above and beyond for my parents and my family. I would definitely use Joanne to buy or sale a home in the future. She's my Relator for LIFE. Thanks Joanne

Joetta S.

I don't write a lot of reviews for anything. Joanne Brown has proven what a realtor should be like. She has gone out of way to make sure everything went smooth from the beginning of sale and the finalization of the sale. But the most important thing that stands out, is when there was a squatter in the house she came and help me get him out of the house. Also, she did same when the same squatter broke in again, this time we had to change the locks and put extra security measures to make sure he doesn't get in. I would highly recommend her, if you ever need an excellent realtor that will go the extra mile for you. Thank you, Joanne

Joanne Burgess Brown assisted my Godmother with the sell of her home where she resided over 35 years. Downsizing can be emotional, overwhelming and difficult. JOANNE showed her level of leadership in negotiating on behalf of my Godmother, advocating for her concerns and needs. This was not an easy transaction not to mention the sensitivity surrounding the sell. JOANNE led the charge with her level of knowledge, grace, dignity, and respect. She is an ultimate professional and I would personally recommend her to anyone seeking to buy or sell their home.

“Thanks… The purchasing process with Joanne as your representative is aptly described in one word ‘Professional.’ Joanne returns calls and kept me informed in all phases of the purchase process. I would advise anyone that is interested in purchasing or selling a property your first point of contact would be Joanne Brown. Thanks again for your impressive performance.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Joanne Brown (CEO of JB Real Estate Investment, Inc.). She showed great dedication and paid close attention to detail in helping me pursue my dream of becoming a Homeowner. Joanne fully understands the concept of purchasing the right home and not just any home when working with a client. Joanne’s professionalism along with patience and kindness was much appreciated as well as greatly needed during this stressful process. She addressed each question, each concern in her gentle, yet confident way and did not hesitate to offer advice or give suggestions for issues I felt were impossible. Not only did she do what was needed, she showed great tenacity in ensuring others involved (Escrow Company/Lender) did their part by assuring all documents and time parameters were made know. In conclusion, Joanne Brown went above and beyond my greatest expectation. I am with great confidence able to recommend her to anyone in the market of purchasing a home. It is quite clear this is more than a business for her but instead a passion and she does not stop until you are completely satisfied.” “Service with a smile Joanne Brown has been a true blessing to me. I had so many personal problems on top of being picky. She was always available to me no matter what the time, day or night. Very professional, caring, and understanding. It took a couple of years for me to get my situation together and she was with me every step of the way, never turned her back or told me to contact her when I was ready. Doing business with Joanne Brown was more like a guide, she made the process so easy for me and even though I was clueless, she never stopped smiling. I am now in the house of my dreams with a comfortable payment and I love it. Thank you Joanne, I will never forget that smile!”

“Joanne Brown was more than helpful in my pursuit of purchasing my first home. I had no prior knowledge of the home buying process, and she explained each step as it was taking place. She made sure I was not in the dark with any aspect, and answered any questions I had. She went over and beyond her duty as a real estate agent from start to finish. I counted on her, and she delivered. I surely will be contacting Ms. Brown when it comes time to buy my next piece of property.”

In my line of work I deal with real estate professionals on a daily basis. None of them as fantastic as Joanne, she was professional, responsive and knowledgeable. Joanne was able to sell our property fast and for top dollar! I would recommend that anyone looking to sell their house in the greater Los Angeles area reach out to to Joanne and let her work her magic.

Adam Smith

My Real Estate Agent for life, Let me tell you about my real estate agent Joanne Brown!! I call her MY REAL ESTATE AGENT because she is always there personally for me day or night, no matter what, her answer is always "I'm here for you and to assist you in whatever I can". What I love most is that she is always smiling. This is my second purchase with the help of Joanne and because the property had multiple units I had to come in as an investor. OMG I was so discouraged in the beginning because I never thought I was capable of reaching this level. But let me tell you this woman made it happen for me through all of the ups and downs of this rocky road, she never pushed me aside for another client or opportunity and her encouragement was amazing, kept my spirits up the entire way with encouraging words. I can remember her telling me that if this property is for you it's already yours and this is only a process. She was so right and I am now a proud owner and operator of my own investment property. I am smiling from ear to ear because I'm in the Big Girls Club now (Inside joke from one of the other investors). Thank you so much Joanne Brown. I'm going to give you a short break but I'm not done yet. This is just the beginning. Your Customer for Life!!!
