About The Hobin Team



 Joan was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and graduated from UC Berkeley where she met her husband Bill. They lived in Stockton, California where Bill owned a third generation real estate business. After raising four children, volunteering for a multitude of organizations and taking the family on a wild year long adventure through 22 countries, Joan became involved in the alternative energy business designing and building passive solar homes. In 1987, they moved to Laguna Beach where Joan again worked in the alternative energy industry. Because of strong ties to the Palm Desert area, Joan and Bill moved to the desert in 1996. Golf and bridge are her passions along with volunteering at The Living Desert and St. Margaret`s Episcopal Church.
