Broker expertly prepares buyers and sellers
Today, an associate real estate broker with Houlihan Lawrence’s Riverside office, Joan Epand began her professional real estate career in 1995.
In recent years, she has consistently ranked among Greenwich’s top-producing agents. The Wall Street Journal’s REAL Trends named her among the top 100 agents in Connecticut from 2014 to 2016. In 2017, she was among the publication’s top 25 Connecticut Realtors.
Epand has built her professional reputation on experience, ability and integrity. She vows to deliver “the absolute straight truth” to her clients. Her prior work as a math teacher and head of business affairs for New York-based Flashframe Films informs her work as a broker, with particular insight into finance, business and negotiation.
Before joining Houlihan Lawrence, Epand was the broker-owner of Shore and Country Properties. She’s also bought, renovated, built, rented and sold many of her own residential properties.
The experiences have given her a knowledge base that she shares with clients—tips for fixing up homes, finding qualified local suppliers and contractors, navigating town departments and regulations, and how best to prepare for selling your home.
Epand continues to invest in her own professional development. She earned an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR) certification and National Appraisal Certification. She’s also a certified New Home Specialist. Her daughter, Megan Epand, is a Realtor with Houlihan Lawrence, as well, and the two work in tandem as a team.
Epand is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, and went on to post-graduate studies at UCLA and Cal Berkeley. She grew up in Wisconsin, but has for many years called Old Greenwich home. She raised three children here and has been an ardent support of local organizations, including the Old Greenwich-Riverside Community Center, the Old Greenwich Association, the local PTA, Greenwich High School’s swim team, and more. She’s a long-time member at Innis Arden Golf Club.
