Having previously been in the real estate business myself for nearly 20 years I have high expectations for representation and client service. Joyce was beyond fantastic in every way. From determining highest and best listing price to negotiating a full price offer and overseeing all the details of the closing process seamlessly, through to recording. Though most importantly, she cares and it shows!

Joyce did a fantastic job all the way through the sale of our home. She was able to give us advise to fix problems that would arise before we listed our home. We sold our home in 5 days and she communicated with us through the whole processes. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks Joyce for a smooth transaction!

SHE KNOWS THE BUSINESS! Joyce helped me sell my condo in downtown Tacoma. I was expecting to sell for high 200's, but after she assessed my property, including the condition, location, amenities, etc., she listed and sold it for more the $50K above what I was expecting. She made the listing process effortless. Within days she scheduled professional photos and made beautiful info sheets advertising my property. She also strategically placed laminated info cards throughout the condo so potential buyers wouldn't miss out on important details about the property and the neighborhood. Most importantly, when the right offer came in, Joyce was my champion. Her extensive knowledge with current operational and legal aspects of buying and selling real estate was invaluable. She was so patient with me. She helped me understand and work through negotiations for both the big AND small aspects of the sale. In the end I felt like both parties (buyer and seller) were treated fairly, equitably, and achieved best possible outcome. This was important to me. And even after the sale was final, we still keep in touch. She's a wonderful person, and a magnificent agent. She has my highest recommendation!

My husband and I were connected with Joyce quite by chance when we called a number on a listing and Joyce was the agent who turned up. That house never worked out for good reasons, but we were so impressed with Joyce that we sought her out to help us find the home we really wanted. Joyce is a warm and pleasant person; she's professionally very savvy and looks out for her clients. More than once she helped us see past the facade to consider issues that would be a problem down the road. We appreciated her honesty and her respect for our wishes and needs. She never tried to persuade or pressure us, and was always willing to go the extra mile. Even when we decided to buy a very small cabin instead of a house (there wasn't much in it for her anymore!) she still put her best effort forward to help us secure the property. She has excellent negotiating skills and stands up for her clients. We give Joyce our highest recommendation!

We are so lucky to have met Joyce Shipley when we were leaving a condo property. Not only did she show us a unit more to our liking there, she soon got us in to see some condo units in another building that we wanted to see that we're just coming back on the market. We were offered a great deal on the perfect space for us in the optimal location for us. All that was left to do was sell our house. Joyce got someone in who helped stage it properly with our own furniture and she did an accurate comp check so that it was priced fairly and at just the right time. It sold at full price to someone who seems to love it as much as we did. We kept pinching ourselves expecting some glitch but the sale of our house and purchase of our new condo all closed smoothly in just over a month. We couldn't be happier with the responsive and professional service and highly recommend Joyce Shipley.

Joyce Shipley sold me several properties in Gig Harbor. Not only did she do an excellent job with the sale, but her ongoing service and follow-up is stellar. Joyce is able to refer professionals in every area as needed and they all do a wonderful job at reasonable rates. I would definitely recommend Joyce to everyone who is interested in purchasing, selling, or viewing property in the Gig Harbor and Tacoma area in Washington State.

Joyce handled our case well and efficiently. Always willing to answer or get answers to our questions and was prompt to get back to us. Made the process smooth and easy for our 1st home buying experience!

As a first time homebuyer, Joyce did a phenominal job of walking me through the home buying process. Best part was that she educated me every step of the way so I made the best choices possible. She's very fast paced and responded to my texts, emails, and phone calls no matter what time I contacted her! When I found my perfect house she wasted no time in putting in my offer - 30 days later I had the keys to my first house! Her experience and confidence made for a very smooth journey. Thanks Joyce Shipley!!
