Oct 09, 2013 No Comments by

Joanna Odabashian is the wife of Matthew Odabashian, and their children are Kelly and Lauren. Her family is her greatest accomplishment.

In 2006, Odabashian changed the course of her life. She resigned from a teaching job and joined her family’s real estate business. She became a realtor in 2007. She worked side by side with her family members at their firm Westland Realty and Investment, Inc.

In 2009 Odabashian partnered with her mother Jennifer, father Bryan and brother Jared as franchise owners of Keller Williams Realty Fresno, opening a real estate company in one of the worst real estate economies ever. Odabashian has been the team leader and CEO of Keller Williams Realty Fresno since May of 2009. The company has grown from 11 agents to 114 agents. In 2012, the company closed 972 transactions and is on track to surpass that in 2013. As team leader/CEO, her responsibilities include retaining and recruiting talented agents and controlling the company’s bottom line.



Keller Williams is a profit sharing company and has shared over $300,000 with associates since opening in Fresno.

Odabashian has served side-by-side with her associates and family members in giving back to the community, at the Evangel Home, the Marjaree Mason Center, Community Food Bank, the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Tree Fresno, the American Red Cross and at the Spirit of Women.

Odabashian loves being a connector. Her mission is “Making lives bigger by making the world smaller.” Her motto, borrowed from Keller Williams International CEO, Mark Willis is, “Total World Domination!”
