In this episode…


In a recent conversation, Joan Rogliano, a nationally recognized real estate divorce specialist (AND a significant presence in my life), and I discussed the importance of community and the crucial support needed during challenging life transitions such as divorce. Throughout our dialogue, Joan shared valuable insights and personal experiences that offer guidance to anyone currently navigating a major life change.

Divorce tends to be a challenging and emotionally draining experience. The entire process can leave you feeling lost and isolated. But what if there was a way to find support and build a community during this difficult time? That's exactly what Joan Rogliano aims to do today with this conversation, and everyday with her business, Rogliano Real Estate Group. Sit back and get ready to be nourished by this beautiful conversation.


The Power of a Supportive Team

First things first, know that you’re not alone. During this conversation, Joan provides insight on how crucial it is to assemble a team of professionals who can provide guidance and support tailored to your specific needs while going through a divorce. 

Joan emphasizes the importance of having a legal advisor, a financial advisor, and a mental health advisor by your side. These professionals can help you navigate the complexities of divorce and ensure that you make informed decisions that align with your goals. By having a supportive team, you can feel more confident and empowered throughout the process.


The Role of Community in Healing 

While professional support is essential, Joan highlights the power of finding community during divorce and other life transitions as well. Using her own divorce experience as a foundation of understanding, Joan founded the Wildflower Group, a community that aimed to support women going through divorce. 

Through workshops and events, the Wildflower Group provided a safe space for individuals to share their experiences, connect with others, and find solace in knowing that they were not alone. Just as I speak on the power community, Joan also believes that community plays a crucial role in healing and moving forward. It provides understanding, empathy, and a support network of people who truly understand what you're going through. This amazing community Joan created is what brought us together to create a lasting friendship as well. 


Taking Charge with Informed Decisions

Whether you’re in the process of getting a divorce, or you’ve already gone through the thick of it… making decisions can be difficult!  However, making informed decisions is a critical aspect of navigating your new life. Many people feel overwhelmed by the decisions they need to make, especially when it comes to questions about the marital home. 

Joan, with her extensive experience in real estate, has demystified this process in her book, "Your Keys to Moving On: Divorce and the Marital Home". She provides practical insights, guidance, and real-life examples to help individuals understand the implications of selling or retaining the marital home. 

Joan's approach underscores the importance of empowering oneself with knowledge to make decisions that align with your long-term goals and well-being. Whether you decide to sell your home or keep it, having all the information you need can help you move on with confidence and clarity. 

Through her book and her community efforts, Joan continues to help women navigate the turbulence of divorce, transforming it into a journey of healing, empowerment, and personal growth.
