I use my negotiating skills to help you get the best price possible.

Little-known fact or What I’m known for

When I was 16 I went to Europe with the Southern CA Youth Chorale and we spent 6 weeks and put on 19 concerts in big cathedrals. We got to go thru Checkpoint Charlie in East Berlin (1966). In 1994, we toured China and I got to go to the top of the Great Wall of China. In 2005 I moved here from Southern California and I quickly familiarized myself with Pierce County and now I am a tour guide for many.

Are we a good fit?

I was always told if you can’t say it best yourself, find someone else to say it for you…

“Joyce Shipley represents what every real estate should be: knowledgeable about pricing, a marketing genius, tactful negotiator, responsive, dependable, calm and kind. She literally held our hand throughout the sale process and when matters required us to be on site and we could not be there, she stepped in on our behalf. We could not have asked for a better representative for our new property purchase and for the sale of our previous home. Oh, and by the way—it sold in only 4 days! Thank you Joyce!”

Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE)

Certified Distressed Property Expert (CDPE): Cathy has earned the prestigious CDPE designation in order to better serve and assist distressed property owners. Many distressed property owners do not realize they have other options besides foreclosure and abandon their homes prior to foreclosure. Sometimes a short sale is a good option to foreclosure. A foreclosure can dramatically affect credit scores, security clearances and employment situation. Short sales have less impact on credit scores and do not appear on a person's credit history. Give Cathy a call and she can walk you through a series questions to see if you might qualify for a short sale and explain how the process works.

Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)

Cathy earned the Accredited Buyer Representative designation from the National Association of Realtors.

Education & Awards

Bachelors degree from the University of Southern California, Award of Excellence for Online Marketing, and in process of earning the GRI designation.
