Originally from England, Joanne Fultz brings a blend of English charm and American drive to the city of Naples and South Florida.
After earning her Bachelor of Arts with Honors in Foreign Languages and Marketing from the University of Nottingham, Joanne began working at a commercial real estate agency, representing a large portfolio of high-end golf courses and luxury hotels throughout France.
Moving to Paris, France in 2001, Joanne spent many winters in Florida, visiting her childhood sweetheart, and now husband, Chad, whom she met at the age of 14 in the sunshine state during a family vacation.
After 20 years in Paris, working for Fortune 500 companies and CEOs in corporate marketing, Joanne obtained a postgraduate degree in education then moved to Ohio in 2014 to become involved in creating a new, private high school with a fresh, individualized approach. Student population increased 400% after the first year, and the school invested in a larger building in order to grow.
Joanne is a personal real estate investor herself, with a portfolio of properties in Paris, the UK, Ohio and Florida. She brings with her an extensive network of international and domestic clients. Her ethos is “exceptional service, personalized attention and international reach” – every client has specific and individual needs that must be met.
Joanne is happily married to her childhood sweetheart, Chad, who is Captain of a Sovereign Citation private jet with NetJets corporate jets. They have two bi-lingual children, Kate and James. When she is not at work, Joanne enjoys spending time with her two horses on their ranch in Ohio, with the extended family at their Florida homes, and speaking French and German as often as she can. A cancer survivor herself, Joanne enjoys giving back by serving as a support mentor to current patients through a non-profit organization.
