My Client Reviews
I have used Joyce several times as my real estate agent. She is a true real estate professional and is everything you would hope for in an agent working on your behalf. I would highly recommend Joyce for anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in Marlborough and the surrounding communities. I have come across many real estate brokers in my career and I have more confidence in Joyce and her skills than any other broker I have encountered.
Joyce was recommended by a friend's brother who had had a wonderful experience with her. I was moving from out of town and boy, did she know the MetroWest area! She even took me to NH for a listing. At all times I felt supported by Joyce as though I was her only client. She ended up negotiating a gorgeous home into a price I could afford. Since then (2005) I have used Joyce to help me buy and sell 2 investment houses. Again I relied on her superior skills and knowledge to get top dollar once the houses had been rehabilitated. In fact, she steered me away from a dubious opportunity - which is a testament to her trustworthiness and how she had my best interest at heart. So I have "upsized" / "relocated" and have twice been an "investor" all with Joyce. I can therefore recommend her both as a buyer's agent and as a seller's agent. The service level Joyce provides is above 5 stars!
I wanted to move but needed a nudge and Joyce found me a perfect apartment. I couldn't say no to a thing about it, it was great. After 3 years there, I was ready to buy. The inventory of homes available was small and Joyce patiently searched a variety of towns with me. Each town and home had something to offer, but nothing was quite the right fit. After a few meetings, a home that would work appeared and I entered into purchase negotiations. The seller was on the road and couldn't be reached at one point. As we were driving through the neighborhood, a home that had been above my price range suddenly appeared, with a price change. The home needed some work, which was scary. It was a fit for so many things I wanted ' yard, garage, decent floorplan and kitchen size. Attributes that were on the bonus list, and then things like flooring and electrical and new garage roof. Joyce had a price range for some of that work, and how it might work out with financing. I was hopeful. Joyce presented my offer, it was accepted and Joyce got everything else in line to get to the closing. The work continues, but that is the joy of an older home. There is no perfect house, but Joyce can get to the root of what will make you happy in your home. Her questions and suggestions come from a deep listening, and the understanding she arrives at will help put all the pieces together ' for you and about you. Thanks, Joyce! I wouldn't have done it without you. 14 years here and going strong.
