Self-driven, energetic, and deeply committed to anything she sets her mind to, Joan Lopez joins Oriana Juvelier’s team at Puerto Rico Sotheby’s International Realty with the sole focus of expanding client relationships and enhancing long cultivated markets. From international investors and developers seeking opportunities within the luxury landscape, to first-time home buyers and millennial couples searching for their ultimate destination, Joan offers an unlimited scope of knowledge on Puerto Rico’s lush and diverse landscape, enabling her team to successfully serve each client's individual and unique needs.
Prior to joining Oriana’ team at PRSIR, Joan’s incredible work ethic and drive naturally led her to become involved in leadership roles in both business and personal communities alike. For over six years, Joan managed luxury residential client experiences at Dorado Beach, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, as well as served over five years as a member of the Board of Directors for a local non-profit organization, Puerto Rico Cambia, empowering local youths to inspire change. Simultaneously, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Operations & Supply Chain Management from the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus, graduating magna cum laude; all by age 23.
A Puerto Rico native, Joan brings an insider’s knowledge of the island’s wondrous culture, history, and climate. With her in-depth experience in the luxury residential sphere, and having worked closely with Residential and Condo Operations (HOAs), she brings vast insight into the decision-making process of purchasing a home in Puerto Rico, before, during, and after move-in. Joan firmly believes that purchasing property creates opportunities to build strong family legacies, and this belief is what fuels her passion and guides her work in the island she truly loves..
Outside of real estate, Joan loves listening to 70s music as well as spending time outdoors in nature, taking her pitbull, Lio, with her on adventure hikes within Puerto Rico’s lush landscapes of beaches, mountains, and forests. She enjoys learning about new cultures, and has taken missionary trips to places like Cuba, Mexico, Dominican Republic, and the Bahama Islands. And if you’re interested in knowing where to find the island’s best culinary treasures, Joan is your go-to.
