My Mission is to provide you with real estate expertise that helps you to find your dream home and have a smooth transaction whether you are moving across the country or across the street.
I specialize in residential real estate sales in Pierce County encompassing Gig Harbor, Port Orchard, Tacoma, University Place and Fircrest. I enjoy working with first time home buyers and those who are downsizing or relocating.
"Joyce is awesome! I have used her on the sale of one home and the purchase of another and was impressed with her knowledge, attention to detail and her prompt response. Joyce is charming and very pleasant to work with and I would gladly recommend her to anyone."
"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!"
"We really like to think through our decisions and Joyce was very patient throughout the process. If we had a question the answer was one based on her experience and us making a decision that would lead to us being informed correctly. Joyce was always there when needed, never to excited and very professional. Joyce always kept a very professional composure no matter what the situation and to me that really says a lot about a person."
"She was an excellent realtor! She helped me find the house I really wanted! Then she worked hard to get it closed on time!"
"Joyce has significant knowledge about real estate in Pierce County. She will go to significant lengths to address or answer any questions you have. For example, we were interested in contacting the carpenter who did the wood-working a house built 10 years ago-- she was able to track him down. She does fight to keep your costs low during the transaction. She sees value in how first-time buyers learn the process of buying a property. I will take that knowledge with me. It's a nice element to a process that can easily become purely a financial transaction."
"We would recommend Joyce Shipley in a heartbeat. She's professional and driven. She put together a game plan to sell our house and followed through with it and then some. She staged the house. All the transaction details were carefully explained to us in plain English, step by step. She is positive and never waivers from believing in herself and her abilities."
