“We’ve been friends with Joyce since the early ‘70s, and have trusted her to sell our homes, help us buy homes and manage property. She offers a real attention to detail. No matter what we asked for her, it received prompt attention and a thorough response. In fact, she recently sold our house in just three days. The first viewer bought it at the full asking price! She really knows this area and gives us great advice. She’s always a pleasure to do business with” – Jim and Mickey Ward
