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.


"Paula did a great job, she was always very accessible and knowledgeable with selling our home. We were very happy with the quick sale of our house during the holidays."

  -Jeannie D, Northbrook, IL , Client

"Paula is fantastic to work with and a very proactive, engaged professional. She was very responsive throughout the process from beginning to end. She helped us with preparing our home for sale by suggesting staging and decorating tips. She researched nearby homes for purposes of market sales  strategy. She communicated with us thoroughly throughout the process, too, which we greatly appreciated! Finally, I give Paula all the credit for proactively meeting with the agent and potential out-of-state buyers during a showing which ultimately led to the sale of our home. She was able to point out all the home upgrades to the potential buyers and give them insight on how fantastic the schools, shopping, restaurants and attractions are in the area. My husband and I have used Paula in the sale of our homes several times and we highly recommend her!"

  -Tammy & John B, Palatine, IL, Client

"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!"
