Joy’s passion for homes evolved from interior design to real estate sales. For many years, she honed her keen eye in the interior design industry doing residential and commercial projects. Joy also worked for a commercial contractor with a focus in multifamily construction, staged homes for real estate agents, and bought, renovated and sold numerous properties. She obtained her Virginia sales license in 2016, and is a very visual agent who can maximize a home’s potential in a way many cannot see.
Joy loves making a house a home. She strives to inspire buyers with her design sense, to help them envision and find their dream space. Joy can also stage and market homes for sellers to maximize their appeal and value. She additionally works with investors to find and purchase homes in disrepair, and has been an integral part of the design and renovation process.
“My goal is to make your real estate buying or selling experience rewarding, and take the stress out of the process as much as possible – as it should be a fun and exciting time!”
Born and raised in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Joy graduated from James Madison University with a degree in Interior Design. She lives in the near west end of Richmond where she enjoys running and working out with a great group of friends. One of her bucket list items got checked off in 2015 when Joy qualified for and ran the Boston marathon. She also loves the beach, and volunteering in a kindergarten class in the east end of Richmond.
Joy’s greatest “joy” is her three children who continue to inspire her to live life to the fullest. She truly believes that “life is 10% of what happens to us and 90% of how we react,” so she tries to wake up with a positive outlook every day.
