Real Estate Sales Consultant, Licensed in CA (21 years experience)
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.

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.

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.
