ABOUT

My name is Joanna Tabora Dyckhoff (pronounced dye-koff) but you can call me Jojo. You probably already know a few real estate professionals, but as they say, “Your vibe attracts your tribe” so I’m glad you found me here. I have a love affair with modern design and smart design, both should enhance your life and promote your well being. I specialize in matching people with these kind of homes and I can’t wait to help you find a home that fits your style and personality!

In addition to helping clients find the right home, I also help couples find an amazing DJ for their wedding. Together with my husband, Isaac, we own and operate Bamboo Beats, a Seattle Wedding DJ business.

I am a passionate full-time entrepreneur and proud mother of two energetic boys, ages 5 and 9 years old. In between working on my two businesses, I enjoy moments with my sweet little family, lots of laughs and crazy times with my groups of soul sisters and all kinds of experiences that include art, design, music, food, fashion and culture.

My real estate affiliation

I am a REALTOR©. I am a Metropolist.

I discovered Metropolist while working at a wedding industry event at their hip co-working office and event space in the SoDo District. The industrial modern and mid century vibe really hit a chord with my design and marketing aesthetic. As a boutique real estate brokerage, the Metropolist style and philosophy totally changed my view of what a Real Estate company could be like. Then I met the “Director of Awesome” Chad Zinda and I was totally sold. I chose Metropolist because they encourage me to stay true to myself and they support my marketing and branding vision. Metropolist has an amazing culture that provides an innovative learning environment, a collaborative spirit, and genuine love of doing good in the world! Meet me at Metropolist and you will see what I mean!

Helping others thrive

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

This is a movement to help build dreams not just houses. I support their program to bring people together to build homes, create community, and provide hope. There are many ways to help whether volunteering, building, donating and even shopping! Join me in supporting their mission by purchasing home furnishings, appliances and building materials at the Habitat Store in Tukwila!

FARE START

Transforming lives through food! FareStart is a real solution to homelessness, joblessness, poverty and hunger. They provide culinary job training and life skills needed for lifelong careers in the restaurant industry. In my experience in the wedding industry, I have had the pleasure of working with FareStart Catering and am thrilled with the work that they do and the value they provide to the community. You can support FareStart by eating at their restaurants and cafes in Seattle or hiring them to cater your next event!

Well, that’s enough about me.
