Joy worked with us very diligently when we purchased our house in 2005. We only had 2 weeks to look, she spent a great deal of time knew what we were looking for and she showed us many properties. We have been thinking of buying another property and she keeps us informed as to the market and properties available in our price range and preferred locations. We have also referred her to other prospective buyers.
I was only in town for a few days and Joy's team help me find the perfect condo for myself. They took me there for the first viewing and after several other viewings over the course of 3 days, I purchased the first one I saw. They did their homework and already knew what I was looking for before I got into town. I would most certainly use Joy for selling or buying again. She is exceptionally honest and candid about the properties she deals with.
Very good, she is very professional in every aspect of the real estate business, with her help I bought lands, sold houses, bought houses in La Quinta area and everything went very well. I am looking forward to keep working with her and I would happily recomend her to anybody who is interested in the desert area real estate
Joy was wonderful to work with and made our home purchase a very pleasant experience from start to finish. Being from Canada we relied on her local knowledge and experience to guide us through the various issues we encountered. Her patience was appreciated as we visited almost 50 homes before electing to act on a short sale which took almost 4 months for the transaction to complete. She had or provided accurate answers to all our questions and concerns while providing us with her valued advice and opinions on homes we showed interest in. She was attentive to our needs and keyed in very quickly to the type of home we were looking for. Her bright smile, humor and quick wit were very refreshing during long days of home viewing. I would definitely recommmend Joy to all my friends and business associates and fully believe she is the right person to help you find your dream home. -Charles
We have been associated with Joy and her team for over two years. She has been extremely responsive and keeps us updated. Her expertise got us off to a great start and we have never looked back.
From our very first encounter with Joyce, we felt very comfortable that we were dealing with a very knowlegable realtor. She guided us through the whole process and made the experience very smooth and stress free. Joyce would our first choise to represent us in any future needs.
Joy was a pleasure to work with in the home buying process. Her vast knowledge and experience in real estate made the process easy. Joy has a wonderful sense of humor that also made the process fun!
Joy is a consumate professional, always positive, patient and fully engaged. Her expertise is unmatched and this made the process exceptionally smooth. Joy is always responsive and made us feel as though we were her only clients. I have already referred 3 friends to Joy.
We LOVED working with Joy. After listing our property for 6 months with another agent Joy was recommended to us. She was able to find a buyer within a few months. Not only was she successful, but she is a delight to work with. She keeps her clients completely up to date on what is happening, and brings a wealth of experience to her business. We would recommend Joy to anyone looking for a professional realtor. Thanks Joy. -Patricia & Harv
I have used Joy Farenden's Home Check Company for many years to oversee my home in La Quinta when I am gone for 3 months of the year. Her service has been outstanding- she has been thorough in her work and responsive to any problem that might arise when I am away. I trust her completely to watch over my property.
We moved to Palm Desert in 2008 after living in Las Vegas for 15 years. We had a daughter in highschool so were were limited to where we wanted her to go to school. Joy was able find us several homes (at least 30) to consider and was very patient and accomodating with us in 118 degrees!!!! Joy's experience in realestate and her warm friendly personality made our transition so much easier, so much so, we had Joy help us find a condo for our in-laws to spend the winters in.
We were introduced to Joy through a friend who had recently purchased and was vey satisfied. Joy was thoroughly professional throughout our house-hunting experience. Thanks to Joy we ended up getting a lot of value for our money. She's truly amazing.
Joy found our current home and sold our previous one. She is an extremely knowlegeable professional, and delightful to work with. She found several homes that met our requirements, and was always willing to show ones that we found. Later she was able to sell our condo in Palm Springs that had been on the market for over a year with no offers. A 5 star realtor!
Joy was a Godsend to us. We were purchasing a short sale. It can be a long, drawn out process. Joy kept us informed on updates and would keep in contact with the seller to make sure they were keeping up on their end too. She was always willing to answer any questions we had and put our concerns to rest. We closed escrow in March and she still calls to say hi and to check if we have any questions. Joy is a joy to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home. She'll steer you in the right direction and put you in touch with the right people.
My wife and I have had the great pleasure to work with Joy over the past many years on various ocassions. She is very kind, resourceful, thoughtful and professional. My wife and I have a home in Lake La Quinta and we have seen it written in the magazine of Palm Springs Life that La Quinta is described as the Gem of the Desert! Well, we believe that actually Joy is the true Gem of the Desert!! Our hat is forever tipped to Joy! -Dr. Bob Byrum
