Overseeing the Marketing Department, Joanna assures that all marketing and promotional channels perfectly showcase each listing, and that Faris Team maintains a strong and reputable brand in the real estate industry. Joanna is committed to innovation, one of Faris Team’s core values, and makes it a priority to lead the team towards new marketing techniques, technology and industry-defying service.  Her role on the team allows her to use her leadership abilities, be creative and foster Faris Team’s core values of love, on fire, excellence, growth, innovation and WOW.

Joanna has always been passionate about marketing, acquiring skills through both education and experience in the field. Her previous roles working in retail sales and as a Marketing Director for a Profit 100 company have proven to be invaluable when developing Faris Team’s portfolio of marketing techniques.
Born in Poland and moving to Canada in her youth, Joanna has spent most of her life living in Barrie. She is very thankful to Jesus for all of the blessings in her life, especially being married to Mark Faris and for their three beautiful boys. Joanna enjoys spending time with her family and friends, being active, and is very involved in Faris Team and its continued world-class success.

WHAT’S A GOAL YOU’RE WORKING TOWARDS?

Being a mom of three active young boys and co-owner of Faris Team keeps me very busy. A goal that I am working on is mastering time management; being able to focus completely on the family when I am with them, and maximizing my productivity during work hours.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT FARIS TEAM?

The collaborative passion that everyone demonstrates on the team, and working together to reach amazing goals each year. The Faris Team culture of: Love, On Fire, Growth, Innovation, Excellence and WOW. I love our client events and am so thankful for their support; they are amazing and we have so much fun.  Also, I love how committed our team is to giving back to the community and our involvement in local charities.

WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?

No one can get me going like Mark. When we go on road trips (typically to business seminars) he cracks me up with his witty sense of humor. Also, our youngest son is just a firecracker! He is always coming up with crazy moves, hilarious comments and many times actions that Mark and I laugh about in secret afterwards.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST?

The services at Connexus Church where our family attends, and being part of their great community. Connexus takes a very practical approach to helping us understand and apply the teachings from The Bible to our daily lives. My relationship has really grown there with Jesus Christ. I especially love it when my sister in law Melanie Faris or Josh Faris sing in the worship band.

WHERE ARE THE FAVOURITE THREE PLACES YOU’VE TRAVELLED?

California. Everything is wonderful there from the sun, large colourful flowers, dolphins in the ocean, beautiful landscapes, spectacular parks and vibrant communities, to the incredible boutique shopping and delicious dining.

 

Greece. I have only had a taste of Greece visiting Corfu Island and Athens, however it was love at first sight. The food, music and scenery surround by beautiful rock and ocean side is just breathtaking. I adore the white and blue architecture which I dream to see more of.

 

Italy.  From the Tuscan hills, to the spectacular ancient architecture, to the colourful villages on the Italian Riviera, there is always something beautiful in sight. The food, especially the focaccia with fresh pesto, or freshly caught sea bass, and of course any pasta, is where it’s at!
