About Me

With a background in commercial real estate and commercial development, Johnna McQuillan’s real estate career has been 25 years in the making. Johnna spent several years working for the first female Registered Professional Land Surveyor in Texas, and she has extensive business management and property tax consulting experience.

Johnna was born in North Texas and raised by several generations of ranchers. Her family relocated to Austin in the early 1980s, when her father went to work for the Texas Railroad Commission. The family remained heavily involved in the Cutting Horse industry, and still is to this day. 

As a youngster, Johnna’s favorite pastime was competing in pageants. At 16, she was fortunate enough to be part of the Miss Texas Teen USA Pageant; at 18, she competed in the Miss Texas USA Pageant. Johnna continues to mentor and coach young women as they pursue their dreams.

Johnna studied International Business and Fashion Merchandising at the University of North Texas in Denton. Four years ago, Johnna and her husband, Nathan, relocated their family to Gainesville from the Austin area when Nathan accepted a job with Eikon Consulting Services. Johnna and Nathan have daughters: a senior at Tarleton State University studying Broadcast Journalism and Political Science; a sophomore at Lindsay High School, where she has played volleyball, basketball, track, raised a pig for FFA, and is a member of FCCLA and Pep Club; and a third who is a 5th grader at Lindsay Elementary and is actively involved with various UIL events. The family attends First Baptist Gainesville and volunteers with CASA of Cooke County.

Johnna is no stranger to relocating and knows firsthand how difficult and stressful it can be.  She enjoys helping clients meet these challenges head-on with the high standards of service, sales, marketing strategies, cutting-edge technology and support Ebby Halliday Realtors has provided since 1945.
