About Paula: 

Paula Joyce's enthusiastic attitude is contagious! A real people-person, she makes the entire process of buying or selling a home manageable, enjoyable and efficient! While negotiating the best possible deal for you, Paula is determined to achieve a win-win result for all. Through the negotiation process, Paula is known for her perseverance and ability to calmly work with both sides in an effort to pull a deal together.  This is especially important in the current real estate market.

"I am a problem solver by nature. I enjoy working with people and really listening to their concerns. Most importantly I love my job, so I don't mind putting in whatever time it takes to make my clients happy." Paula has many satisfied customers as the biggest source of her business comes from referrals from past clients.

When assisting you on a purchase, Paula will help define your needs, work within your budget and preview homes for you, making the process as effortless as possible.

When marketing your home for sale, Paula will present you with a specific "to do" list of items to be addressed to make your home "market ready." She will offer you all of the resources necessary to complete the list.  She also brings a stager to assist in making your home appeal to the greatest number of buyers.

Paula is known for her attention to detail and boundless energy. She will work closely with you through the buying or selling process, and offer you constant follow up. Having relocated years ago, Paula understands what it's like to pick up and move your family to a new area. "When I moved my family to the North Shore I wanted information about schools, neighborhoods, community services, park districts, camps, libraries, train schedules, pools, bike trails, tennis courts, skating rinks, shopping and medical facilities! It was an involved process and I can appreciate exactly what my clients need to help them with this process."

Raised on the East Coast, Paula attended Simmons College in Boston and received a B.A. in Business. After several years working at an ad agency and then selling ad space in New York City, she relocated to Northbrook in 1990. She and her husband live in Northbrook. Her son lives in Los Angeles and works in “the business” and her daughter lives in Chicago and works in advertising. With lots of friends in the community, Paula Joyce often connects her new clients with past clients helping them to settle in quickly. She will help you navigate your way through the purchase or sale of your home in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.


"From the first time I met you in October, I knew my mom was in "amazing hands". You came rushing into a showing with a huge smile and confident stride. Lots of bumps along the way, and you handled everything with professionalism and true grace. You have been a friend to my mom and me. Thank you so much for helping my mom transition. She is thrilled and I am so grateful!"

"Paula was there every step of the way. Always new of someone to take care of everything. She was very supportive of our needs and was always prompt with answers to questions. If it wasn't for her and her help I am sure we would have never been able to get the house on the market and sold so quickly. She is a great realtor and now friend who is highly recommended!"

"It was a pleasure all around working with Paula. She connected us with people to help us ready the house for sale and pitched in herself in any way prior to the sale and was available up until the very end. Being the very first time ever selling a house after 35 years all of her support was greatly needed and appreciated!"
