Joanna Rice, GRI

My professional experience is diverse. As a grammarian, I’ve held many positions involving writing and editing. I worked as an international compensation analyst for two major financial institutions before starting a family in the early 1980’s. Before becoming active in real estate in 1999, I had two retail shops in Christmas Tree Village in Incline Village. There I met a huge segment of the local population and was able to build not only lasting friendships, but also an impressive client base. I have consistently been a top producer in Incline Village.

Originally from Wilmington, North Carolina, I lived primarily in the southeastern part of the United States until the mid 1970’s. I attended the University of North Carolina at Wilmington; graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor’s degree in English; and continued graduate studies in literature at Florida International University.

I moved to Incline Village from Pasadena, CA in the mid 1990’s. My husband, David, is a consultant; and daughter Katie, a gifted artist, is pursuing her dream working in Los Angeles as a cartoonist.

I am past president of the Incline Village Board of REALTORS®. In addition, I held many positions the Incline Village/Crystal Bay Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, including president. Other past affiliations include the Board of Directors of The Children’s Cabinet at Incline Village, Assistance League of Southern California, and National Charity League. I am currently a member of the American Association of University Women.
