    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $425K in Vineland, Saint Joseph, MI 49085.
    Joy worked endlessly for us in finding our new home. She was always very willing to show us the homes we were interested in seeing and would arrange for us to see them right away. Joy follows through with every detail up to the closing, and after, to make sure that every detail is covered and all goes well. If you are looking for someone to work hard for you and can make buying a new home a success, Joy is a person who will work overtime for you.

    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $200K in Higman Park, Benton Harbor, MI 49022.
    Joy went above and beyond for me while looking for and purchasing a home in Michigan. I was located in Arkansas having to find a home in this insane market and Joy was always on the ball with sending me homes that I might be interested in and responding to me when I sent her homes that I found. She helped coordinate services when I was going back and forth between the 2 states, even meeting service providers at my home when I wasn't available. She took the time to explain every step of the home buying process to me as a first time buyer and was not shy about voicing opinions when a house was did not meet my needs. I highly recommend her whether you are buying or selling and plan to use her again.

    Bought a single family home in 2021 for approximately $375K in Vineland, Saint Joseph, MI 49085.
    Joy works tirelessly around the clock to find you your perfect house. She is always available to talk or text whenever you have questions and is always prompt in her replies. Given the current house-buying climate, we worked with Joy through a longer-than-anticipated house-buying period but we still never felt pressured to settle. Joy gave us tidbits of insight that we would have never considered ourselves and we are absolutely thrilled with our final choice of house.

    Bought a home in 2021 in Berrien Springs, MI.
    Joy was very helpful in contacting listing agents to see if they would accept FHA and making sure that we got into a home that had enough space for our family. She communicated consistently and helped us get what we needed in the end.

    Sold a single family home in 2021 for approximately $250K in Higman Park, Benton Harbor, MI 49022.
    Joy was fantastic to work with. The services she offered with consultations and home staging were both highly beneficial. Wit her help we got multiple offers!  She takes the time to walk you through the process and makes sure you understand everything, and is super quick to follow-up wherever needed.
