Smooth | Process | Informative

I am passionate about home ownership and love what I do. That is to help you find a great home! I educate myself about the intricacies of buying and selling homes so that I can make the process as smooth as possible for you. I use my project management skills to keep you on timelines. 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!”
