Jo Zarnoch

  • Jo has 24 Years of Real Estate Experience in the Carolinas with emphasis on Equestrian and Lake Norman Non-Equestrian Properties in The Greater Charlotte Area. I was born in upstate New York where the ‘hearty’ battle the 6-foot snow drifts for the majority of the year. Close to the scenic Adirondack Mountains and dozens of beautiful natural lakes, I was young and naive enough to think this was heaven. And maybe it is, for polar bears!

    I was lucky enough to live next door to my grandparents. I grew up with horses, pastures, frogs, and nature walks as my daily pastimes. As an only child I was protector to any type of winged or furry creature. In middle school, I took riding lessons on Morgan horses and developed a forever love of these magnificent creatures. In college, once again, I was fortunate enough to have a semester of English riding, which was my all-time favorite course.

    My background prior to real estate was business college, medical office management, adjunct instructing at a local community college, and partner with my then husband in a high-end custom home-building business. We raised two beautiful daughters, both professionals, and I claim 8 grandchildren as my legacy. 

    Combining my former life near lakes, with my love of animals provides me with a unique niche in real estate.  I am a notorious “out of the box thinker” and a people person. I call myself a survivor of many things, including interesting real estate markets, with my focus always on the good. Real estate is natural for me, as I enjoy matching people with homes, animal lovers with farms, and buyers and sellers move from one experience to another.

    To state it simply, I love what I do.

    My real estate career began in Central New York in 1987, where I listed and sold all price ranges, both re-sale and new construction.  In 1995, I moved to the Charlotte area, and became the Real Estate Sales Director for a Country Club in Davidson NC, where I enjoyed working for over 10 years.

    Julie Breedlove and I met through a referral when I was seeking a horse training facility for a new buyer. My colleagues in real estate told me she was the go-to Realtor® for anything equestrian or farm related, and they were right!  In 2010 I made the decision to join her team.  We represent properties in a variety of price ranges - primarily horse farms and homes with land - focused on the Greater Charlotte Metro Region and the Triad. Our market includes approximately 25 North Carolina counties and 8 South Carolina counties, just south of Charlotte, NC.

    In my spare time, I ride my quarter horse Dolly, foster at-risk dogs and cats, and feed at least 25-30 spayed and neutered cats daily at various feral colonies. I have as my soulmates a sassy Yorkie named Toby, a darling long-haired Chihuahua named Taco, an endearing little 3 lb. Deer Head Chihuahua named Bugs, and my newest addition, Stormie, a Pomeranian.  My life is full and happy.  I believe in giving back and trying to make peoples' and animals' lives better.

    Few Realtors have lasted 32 years!  It takes dedication, reliability, creativity, and a positive nature.  If you have need for a seasoned professional please email, text, or call me today.

Thank you! We have both commented on how professional your approach to selling our property was and just how easy you made this whole process or us. We were not optomistic that it would be sold at all when we put it on the market, but we decided to put it for sale and see what happened, obviously we are delighted with the result.
