Paula Joyce
Coldwell Banker Realty

"We loved working with Paula! She helped us find our very first home. She was knowledgeable, thorough, and extremely hardworking. Paula was in constant contact with us throughout the entire process. She always had our best interest in mind. She would give us her opinion in areas we often never considered. Even after our sale was complete, Paula continued to give us references and support with our house. We can't say enough wonderful things about Paula. We couldn't have been happier and would recommend her to anyone."

"We personally knew Paula Joyce and respected her professionalism and knowledge of the local market. We knew that she was the right agent for us the moment we decided to sell our house and move to St. Charles. Paula helped us with great planning and home staging advice. She brought in a professional staging team that really made all the difference (it was work for us...removing some furniture and personal effects) we think that it is what helped the quick sale and full price offer we received. Paula has a great network with both the residential real estate community as well as the social network that helps both buyers and sellers."

  -Chuck H. & Diana R., 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!"

"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!"

"Paula Joyce helped us buy our home two years ago, and she was just amazing through the whole process. Her knowledge, professionalism, and experience, just to name a few of her qualities, made the experience so much easier than it could have been. This year, we had to move, and sell the same property, on fairly short notice. There was no question in our minds that Paula was the person we wanted to handle the sale. She guided us through the process of preparing our home to put on the market, and set goals and deadlines that helped us move forward. We received an offer 10 days after we listed, and for more than we had expected to sell for. She was supportive and available throughout the entire process, and I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell property in the Northbrook area or surrounding suburbs."

"As first time buyers, Paula was great at listening to our wants and needs and was able to find properties that fit what we were looking for. She was also able to put us in contact with all the contractors and professionals we needed to complete the purchase. We are still extremely satisfied with how the process went and with our house, and will be recommending Paula to anyone we know looking to buy a house."

  -Jon & Andrea K, Des Plaines, IL, Client

"Paula understood the special circumstances that we were faced with in selling this house and listened to our needs. She did an excellent job of updating and staging the house for sale. Her suggestions proved to be spot on and helped sell this home in one weekend! Paula continued to check on things related to the sale and kept us updated as to what was going on. It was truly a pleasure to work with her during this sale. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to sell their home."

    -Patti V, Northbrook, IL, Client

"Paula is a professional in every sense of the word. She worked tirelessly, offering suggestions and advice more than dictating what should be done."

    -Ralph N, Northbrook, IL, Client

"I would give Paula my highest recommendation. Paula possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent broker. She knows her market extremely well; she is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with us. Paula is both very professional and personable. She clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Paula was a great helper. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Paula or being anything but happy in choosing to work with her."

    -Yangming S, Northbrook, Client

"Paula Joyce is a good friend, so we naturally felt comfortable with her because of that. But her reputation as a broker that knew a lot about our neighborhood, and that got results, was what made her our selection as a broker. As it turned out Paula was the consummate professional throughout all phases of the sales process and demonstrated a high level of a care at every turn. Our home sold in just a few days, and she couldn't have been any more attentive to our needs throughout the process."

   -Chuck & Terri K, Northbrook, Client

"I was looking for someone who would actively participate in getting my mother's house ready to list and who had a strong track record in similar situations. Paula exceeded my expectations. She was very hands on, knew the right tradesmen to hire for our remodeling, and gave generously with her time. And when it came to listing, showing and closing she was professional, always available and helpful. Paula pushes everyone through the process, which is very valuable. I was very satisfied with Paula's performance and would recommend her without hesitation."

   -Clark K, Northbrook, Client

"Paula was an outstanding agent willing to help us at all hours of the night. She is fabulous and we will be recommending her to all of our friends moving to the area."

   -Emily & Mike H, Northbrook, Client

"Paula is an outstanding agent! She came over to walk through our home, and then spent a considerable amount of time going through comps with us. She appraised our property and then made suggestions as to how we cold get our home ready for market. Her number one concern was to make out home appear neutral for prospective buyers. Fortunately, I followed her advice, and hired a stager, even though my home was beautifully decorated and neat as a pin. The staging, along with the neutral paint colors she used, helped the buyers easily visualize their possessions in our home. Paula was over every day to oversee the painters, the stager and to assist me in any was that she could. She is considerate, knowledgeable, and was able to keep me on track. Not an easy thing to do!"

Paula knows the secrets to maximizing your home's square footage. She knew how to make my closets look larger, my bathrooms look brighter, and helped me bring each room in my home up to date. She left nothing unturned, making sure that every inch of my home was appealing, and that every area had a purpose and could be utilized in ways that I hadn't even thought of.

Paula knew the market and our particular area so well, and was able to price it correctly. We had four offers on our dining room table after only one day on the market! Paula made the entire process as easy as selling a home can be. She is extremely professional, incredibly hard working, and truly goes the extra mile for you in every way, shape and form! I would recommend her again and again!"

"I am writing this letter to let you know what an amazing experience I have had with one of your agents, Paula Joyce. She lives down the street from me and has always played an active role in Northbrook. She has hosted parties for the neighborhood and I really loved it last year (and this year) when she placed American flags up and down the street. Anyway, my point is I know her---everyone knows her. I interviewed a few agents to see who I trusted to sell my house. Paula was the most professional and prepared of all. So of course we hired her.

From the moment she started she was just great. Really took charge and I did not worry about anything. She had an amazing stager, photographer, and recommended various people to help her along the way---an excellent handyman as well as someone to help lift and move heavy objects. Any obstacle that came up Paula had the answer and could solve it. I was never worried or second guessed her during the entire experience. The scheduling of showings went flawlessly. She was always careful to make the best use of our time and did everything she could to make things go smoothly and quickly. She helped us with decisions and I trusted her completely!

This was the easiest, quickest, and most efficient house selling experience I could have ever imagined. And it's all thanks to Paula. I just wanted to let you know what a valuable asset you have!"
