  • Joni Pradetto, Executive Assistant
  • E-mail Joni
  • Joni joined Beachy Keen Rentals & Realty in 2007, attracted to the fulfillment of helping people find and create places they can call home with all the joy and appreciation of making it their own. She is a critical support to the rest of the team and steps in to cover whenever and wherever needed. Joni has an appreciation for relationships rarely found. She loves connecting those that have something to offer with those that want or need.

    Joni had a long career in administration for several different industries and is a certified, licensed massage therapist (and a great one at that). She gets as much joy giving to and supporting others as most get from receiving. Hers is the voice you'll hear if you "press 0 for the operator".
