There are many Real Estate Professional sin the market place, but Joyce Courtney is the créme da le créme. When the market crashed, she rose to the top, as she has consistently throughout her career. She is honest, up front, professional, very well connected and knowledgeable. I give Joyce my highest recommendation.
-- Heather Denniston
 
Joyce has been our realtor for over a decade, and there's a simple reason why. Joyce is the only realtor we truly rely on time after time to provide not only us, but all of our friends and family that we've recommended to her with consistent service, trustworthiness, and a true passion for helping people find properties that are truly right for them. We've had bad experiences with other realtors before working with Joyce. She's one of those individuals that really is passionate about her work and it shows in everything she does. Her network is built on referrals, and I without hesitation recommend her for any real estate need.

I first met Joyce through a referral in my move back to the Chicago area in 2000. I found myself very frustrated working with a real estate agent referred to me by my relocation company who was not listening to my needs and was not very familiar with the area when someone told me I must call Joyce. Calling Joyce made all of the difference in our move and beyond! Joyce not only listens, but from the very first meeting and throughout the years since, she has consistently demonstrated the highest level of client care and support that I have ever experienced. Joyce has helped us to find the right house twice now and has done the same for dozens of people that I have referred to her. What really sets Joyce above all others is that she not only supports her clients to find their new home, she also provides them with and welcomes them into the wonderful community of relationships that she has built over the years by being who she is. With Joyce we found our homes, our neighborhoods, and a full community of support and connections throughout the ten years since - now that's client service like I have never experienced before! I give Joyce my highest level of recommendation.

Joyce, it struck me that in the craziness of leaving St. Charles and trying to settle in here in the Philippines I neglected to adequately express our gratitude to you and your staff for your capable handling of the marketing and sale of our home. Thank you. I found you to be the consummate professional: Knowledge, both of your industry with its regulations and intricacies, and my local market. Accessible and responsive to my inquiries and needs. Plain-spoken, always telling me "like it is" and helping me understand the nuances of the process. Timely and efficient, whether printing and delivering additional information sheets or communicating replies to negotiations - it was all handled effectively. And just plain delightful to work with. Thank you for a job well done. I hope our paths cross again. Gratefully,
--Pat Meyer
 
I am sure you hear all the time "We really like working with you." Perhaps what you don't often hear is why. Your initial presentation, based on mathematical analysis, was by far the most thorough of any presentation we had by any of the four Realtors we interviewed. You clearly put a lot of time and thought into it. You did not pressure us to list with you at all. Your initial analysis of how we should price our house and what our house would sell for was very accurate and higher than any of the other realtors. Your presentation of the property from its staging to printed materials, was very well reviewed by prospective buyers. Your promise to "shake the trees" among local agents to find us a buyer interested in preserving our historic property yielded exactly such a buyer through a local agent. Your advice about timing the presentation of our house on the market was very accurate. We had a contract which lead to a sale within 10 days of marketing the house. Your handling negotiations was highly professional. You looked out for our interests and you kept the tone pleasant. Your handling of paperwork was nothing short of amazing. The fact that you use both electronic and supportive print documentation was very much appreciated. Your demeanor was always pleasant and your personal presentation highly professional. You treated everyone involved with dignity. You stood by us throughout the process, even after the close of the deal when we had warranty issues. You gave us a lot of your time, as you continue to do, by keeping us abreast of the market, informing us about helpful tools and applications, and by inviting us to local events which you sponsor. In short, you are not just a full-time Realtor, but a full-service Realtor. We felt like we got a fair deal and the right buyer. We highly recommend you: you made the process of selling a house as pleasant as it could be!

Joyce had a vision for the sale of our home for an amount that was (she did not know this) 20% above a recent professional appraisal and 20% more than what we expected. It sold for the full amount in two weeks. Joyce also helped us with our move out of state after the sale. She is awesome!
--Pat and Elaine Phillips
 
Extremely professional. Great to work with Joyce and her staff. Invaluable experience! We sold our home in St. Charles and bought another home with more property. Joyce has also handled our rental properties for the last 10 years. We purchased a vacation home with her assistance as well.
--Kate & Eric Kirchner
 
Joyce is a fantastic realtor. She helped us with the purchase of our home 15 years ago and has been a wonderful referral source for many years. When it came time to sell our house again, she was always there to answer any questions. Her team has been with her and have always taken care of us. You will  not find a better realtor who knows the market.
--Brenda and Al Tiedke
 
Joyce helped us move to Kane County from downtown Chicago with the rental and ultimate sale of our first home. We didn't think twice when it came to buying our current home with Joyce. Great from first meeting to closing. Thanks a lot Joyce!
--Erin and Mary Schutte
 
Joyce worked with my wife and I in the purchase of our home and did an EXCELLENT job end to end from the beginning of the process all the way through closing! She has helped my in-laws and other family members purchase and sell multiple homes and is not just a realtor, she is a trusted adviser.  Joyce is patient, experienced, friendly and most importantly super knowledgeable. I WILL use Joyce in the future should we look to purchase another home.
--Dan and Amy Bulauski
 
I have known Joyce for over 19 years. She was our first realtor when we moved here to the Western Suburbs. Once our family started to expand, so did our needs for a bigger house. She has helped us buy three homes. Each time she has been responsive and professional. She is extremely  knowledgeable and we wouldn't trust to go to anyone else to purchase or sell a home. Joyce and her staff are first rate

I have been served by many real estate agents during the last several years, and I definitely have been most highly impressed by the professional assistance provided by Jenn and Joyce Courtney. They are by far the most honest, competent, dedicated, well-informed, and responsive real estate agents among all of those with whom I have worked. They provided fist-rate help last year, when I needed to purchase two houses in Geneva, Illinois within a very short span of time. Also, they have demonstrated a very high level of property management expertise as the rental and management agents of the two houses I purchased. Because I live a considerable distance from Geneva, where the two houses are located, I am very grateful for all of the highly effective real estate assistance that Jenn and Joyce Courtney have provided. I would recommend them to anyone who wants help from the very best professional real estate agents.
