More Testimonials of What Joie's clients say about her:


Joie is a consummate professional. My wife and I found her most value asset was her ability to listen in order to truly understand our objectives. She worked tirelessly to insure that our dreams became a reality. It is not a question of "if" we will use her again, only of "when". We would strongly encourage others to utilize the efforts and professionalism of Joie.

Hello Paula,


We closed on our vacation villa in Kissimmee yesterday and would like to express our thanks to 'yourspecialgent' especially our agent Joie.


It was difficult for Joie from the start, house hunting with two couples with different outlooks and tastes. And as you are aware our first attempt ended two days before closing, because of an unscrupulous Florida bank.


Joie played a huge part in encouraging us and helping us to find our new home. We quite simply could not have purchased without her hard work and expertise.


Always there to advise and iron our any problems. From finding our home, after many different property viewings, to guiding us through and dealing with, the selleers agent, the builder, the title company, inspections, environmental issues, HOA, contracts, building repairs, home insurance, closing, the walkthough and even furnishings, At every stage of the purchase Joie's expertise has been invaluable.


My email mailbox sorts the senders into separate folders, to date I have received 265 emails from Joie, with probably more than half of them being answers to our questions.


Even now after closing Joie is still helping us! She is holding and issuing the keys, finding out about utility companies and arranging for the furniture placement designer to gain access to our home. We have not needed to worry about anything. Nothing has been too much trouble.


But the best thing about Joie is Joie. She is a nice lady, friendly, honest and unpretentious. We feel we have made a good friend.


Should anyone approach me about buying property in the Orlando area I will have no hesitation in recommending 'yourspecialagent'.


And if you have any enquiries from prospective UK buyers, you may give them my phone number and I will assure them they are maing the right decision in using 'yourspecialagent'. And to ask for Joie!

We hired a buyer agent to help us negotiate the purchase of land and it was our very best decision so far.  We loved Joie, the buyer's agent we used.  Unlike a realtor who is obligated primarily to the seller, not the buyer, the buyer's agent was only obligated to us.  Additionally, the buyer's agent's fee is paid by the seller.  In Florida 6% of the sale is to the realtor paid by the seller.  However, if a buyer's agent is involved in the sale, ½ the commission goes to the realtor and ½ of the commission goes to the buyer's agent.  We ended up with someone who worked entirely for us because her office doesn't accept listings and she was paid by splitting the seller's agent's commission.
Joie was amazing and so thorough in guiding us through the perils of a land purchase.  Her first task for us was to contact the seller and she found out that he was inflexible on price, not in a hurry to sell and he said flatly that he wouldn't even consider a lower offer.  We finally chose to purchase a 3 acre lot from a couple whose asking price was better than anything on the market.  Since the owner hadn't hired a seller's agent there was no commission for the buyer's agent to split.  Joie had been so helpful that we decided to pay her directly.  It was the best decision we have ever made and we don't begrudge the money we spent at all.  Joie guided us through the process, screening surveyors and environmental engineers for us.  We emerged the proud owners of 3 acres of land in Clermont/Groveland.
