Incomparable Realtor with Uncompromising Standards


Joujou was born in New Delhi and educated at Tara Hall, a Catholic boarding school in Simla, India’s summer capital. After completing her undergraduate degree in Economics from New Delhi University, she was then introduced to her future husband, Piri Chawla, in the traditional “match-making” custom. She became engaged to him within 14 hours. In 1980, she joined her husband in the United States, and after living in New York and Texas for a few years, they moved to California in 1985 and settled in Blackhawk.


She started selling real estate in Dallas, Texas, in 1982 and started working for Blackhawk Properties/Blackhawk Realty in 1985, where her dedication and hard work set the tone for what would set her apart from all other agents. She practiced real estate with Blackhawk Properties/Blackhawk Realty from 1985 to 1991. In 1991 she obtained her brokerage license and became a co-owner of the company, renamed Blackhawk Real Estate Company. As a co-owner, her company began to do sales volume, typically done by companies ten times their size in the Bay Area of San Francisco. In this capacity, she also functioned as the CFO of the organization for nearly ten years. In 2008, her company merged with J. Rockcliff to become one of the most influential companies in the Bay Area’s real estate market.


In August 2018, Joujou launched the Blackhawk Office of Compass. This East Coast juggernaut real estate company excels in being on the cutting edge of technologies that support and facilitate real estate sales. Joujou’s knowledge of the real estate market is extensive. Being in the industry since 1982, she’s known as an industry leader, having done over $1.5+ billion in sales volume and over 1,300 homes sold since inception. Publicly she is known as the “Go-To” person and getting the desired results for her clients. Joujou’s eye for detail ensures that none of her properties are overlooked. Further, whether it is a two-bedroom condo or a spectacular mansion, no client is treated differently because everyone is just as important to her. She loves traveling and feels very fortunate to have visited and enjoyed many countries’ people and customs.

★★★★★”When we decided to sell our house in Blackhawk, we met with a few local realtors, but JouJou came highly recommended by my inner circle of friends. After meeting with JouJou, she didn’t apply any pressure, on the contrary, advised us to hold off a few months to sell our house to get top dollar and she was right on. We had the highest sale in Silver Maple and all thanks to JouJou. From the initial meeting all the way to escrow, it was amazing how professional and a step ahead her team was. The best way to describe it is truly SEAMLESS. We didn’t have a single item we had to follow up on and JouJou was personally involved in everything and her team was simply amazing. I’ve had over 15+ real estate transactions in the past few years and JouJou stands out with in-depth market knowledge and overall understanding of luxury real estate, especially in the Danville / San Ramon area. I would never do another transaction on the buying / selling side without JouJou representing our family and us. Thanks, JouJou, and to your amazing team at Compass! It’s no wonder you’re #1. !!!”– Thanks, Shawn & Family, Danville Seller, December 2022
