JoAnn Ayres
Broker Associate
Loving the country life sets the tone for all that JoAnn does. “Ours is a unique area with a concentration of cultural events and the expected agricultural pursuits”, JoAnn says, “making this one of the best places in the state to call home”.Having received her license in 1978, JoAnn began a career which has seen many changes. Originally living in Houston and working with commercial real estate brokers, she and her two sons moved to Hays County, where she eased her way into living and selling the country lifestyle. In 1994, she moved to Round Top, married UT Shakespeare professor Jim Ayres, bought a farmhouse and began her new life. “Our large blended family has blessed us with 13 grandchildren and all the joy life has to offer”, JoAnn says. Three additional family weddings are adding to the love. Her acquired knowledge and appreciation of Fayette and surrounding counties has made her a “Top Producer”, assisting buyers in creating their own pieces of the country pie and selling several ranches to clients who then carved out smaller country properties – which she then sold to many others with dreams of a rural lifestyle. JoAnn’s ability to listen, along with her keen interest in the needs of both buyers and sellers, combine well with her determination, fair-mindedness, and integrity. Professional affiliations include: Member of Houston Association of Realtors (HAR)
  • Member of Texas Association of Realtors (TAR)
  • Member of National Association of Realtors (NAR)
  • Member of Texas Land Brokers’ Association (TLBN)
  • Member of South Central Board of Realtors (SCBOR)
Taking a proactive role in her community, JoAnn is involved in the following:
  • St Paul Lutheran
  • Church Rotary International
  • Texas Women’s League/Lunch Bunch (a local networking organization)
  • Second Chance Emporium
  • Volunteer/Leadership Fayette County/Kids Against Hunger
  • Lutherans for Lima
Some of the many cultural offerings are Shakespeare at Winedale and Camp Shakespeare/Festival Institute/Fayetteville Chamber Music Festival/ARTS for Rural Texas/Fayette, Lee, Colorado, Washington, and Austin County Fairs If you’re looking to buy or sell give JoAnn a call.

JoAnn has sold two homes for us. The first was a cabin to be moved off our property that sold in one day and earlier this year she listed our property and we had a contract for the asking price in less than a week. She had a professional take photos and video with a drone to optimize the appeal of our ten acres with house and barn. She is a friend and her professional advice and knowledge of the area are outstanding. JoAnn was available to answer our questions and guide us through several closing delays. She looked out for our best interest and we knew we could depend on her.

“We have worked with Jo Ann Ayres on purchasing a weekend country home as well as a business in the Round Top area. We have found Jo Ann to be very knowledgeable about the area and a pleasure to work with. She was always very professional and accommodating in our search for properties, especially since we live out of town during the week. We are very pleased with our purchases and hope to purchase more property in the future. Jo Ann is definitely our Realtor of choice and we would highly recommend her to others!”

“We’ve known and very much enjoyed working with Jo Ann for almost 20 years. Jo Ann helped us buy our first property in Round Top, and she was our first and only call when we decided to sell. She knows the area very well, is very personable and a delight to deal with, and always communicates with us in a timely professional manner. Highly recommended.”

Jo Ann goes the extra mile!

Seventeen years ago, my husband and I wandered into a small real estate company in the tiny town of Round Top. Luck was on our side that Sunday afternoon, because Jo Ann Ayres was on duty. She immediately impressed us with her friendliness, professionalism, and “no-pressure” attitude. She guided us through the process of finding just the right place at an agreeable price. Best if all, she introduced us to a life in Round Top, and helped us settle into our new community. Jo Ann goes the extra mile.

Historical real estate knowledge

It has been a couple of years since you orchestrated the sale of our Washington County farm. Judy and I are so thankful for your thorough analysis, welcoming approach to the potential buyers, and your studious approach to understanding the property’s and owner’s nuances.
All country properties with some acreage, like our old place, are different from most all others in one way or another, as you well know… Your historical real estate knowledge, network of other brokers specializing in the area, and total personal caring were all critical in working this particularly interesting property through the evaluation maze to a mutually agreeable closing with a buyer well matched to the property.
Judy and I thank you from the heart and highly recommend you to anyone interested in country property in you operational area.
