SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - A lifelong native of the Bay Area, Johanna Phu comes to McGuire Real Estate as a new agent in its Noe Valley office, located at 100 Clipper Street.

Johanna grew up in California's third largest city, San Jose, just 40 miles south of San Francisco. With her love of the Bay Area running as deep as her roots, she graduated from San Francisco State University with a B.S. in Marketing and Hospitality.

Johanna's professional philosophy is to create strong client relationships from trust, loyalty and care. By listening closely to her clients' needs, wants, expectations, and overall goals Johanna's able to keep their best interests at the forefront of her duties. She uses her marketing knowledge and sales experience to give herself an edge in creative strategic planning and effective communication.

Her clients not only take note of but also benefit from her extensive customer service background, developing the essential interpersonal skills and keen attention to detail which have made her successful. While she recognizes the independent nature of this business, Johanna loves working alongside her fellow agents, choosing to embrace her colleagues as partners rather than as competitors.

Johanna is an avid traveler, city foodie, as well as bilingual -- as she's fluent in both English and Cantonese. In her spare time she enjoys baking, snowboarding, and catching the newest movie releases. A community servant, she also volunteers at San Francisco's Give Me Shelter Cat Rescue.
