Meet the Team


Juanita Lewis
BRE # 01221002

My introduction to the real estate industry began in 1987, with Farmers Home Administration, USDA.   While working with FmHA I learned how to service delinquent loans.  During my time there I was responsible for reducing the delinquency rate from an approaching 10% to 2.9%, one of the lowest in the nation.  I was able to maintain a good rapport with the delinquent borrowers.

Next I became a of US Bank’s, Community Lending Division. I was employed as a Secretary then moved to a Loan Processor and learned the details of that position which helped me move up to a Loan Officer. While working in the Community Lending Division of US Bank I gained knowledge about the Community Reinvestment Act. I was able to gain a greater understanding of the lending and servicing side of real estate.

I was encouraged to pursue my real estate license and join the team at Goree and Thompson Real Estate, Inc. I have been employed here since 1997. It has been one of the most fulfilling opportunities ever given to me to be part of this growing company. I have learned the full circle of real estate, from the beginning to the end. I have been taught by a well experienced broker whose passion for real estate shines in her actions and day to day dealings.

Working close with our reliable agents and staff is like working with a close knit family. While here I have been able to help market properties and build good working relationships with our corporate clients, vendors and other agents. Working here has brought a greater sense and desire to help others. I have been able to help in giving back to community by organizing donations to our favorite charities. I am honored to be a part of a company that is able to help others obtain their dream of home ownership.  Reach Juanita Lewis directly at (916) 284-7211 or e-mail
