Ratings & Reviews

Joy's level of expertise and professionalism are second to none. Joy assisted us with our search for a property that had to meet a number of very specific criteria. She tirelessly assisted us with viewing houses and assessing the properties to ensure that we found one that fit our needs. Joy's attention to detail is outstanding - she ensures that she knows every detail about each property that she shows her client. I wouldn't recommend another realtor.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Tiverton, RI.

Joy was our buyers agent in a recent home purchase in Tiverton. Joy was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process and always provided valuable advice. Joy recommended a full title V (Massachusetts type) septic inspection even though it was beyond RI's testing requirements and as a result we avoided inheriting a $20k+ problem. Joy then negotiated for a new septic system to be installed by the sellers. From setting up showings to advising on inspections Joy really made the buying experience as smooth as possible. I was really impressed by how accessible Joy was and her responsiveness to all of our calls, emails, and text messages. Overall, my wife and I highly recommend Joy.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Tiverton, RI.

She was reight on top of things. Way ahead of the lawyer. If it wasn't for things that she brought up before the closing we would have had to go back because they lawyer for the other party buying the house was unprepared. She took the time to ask for the paperwork ahead and contacted (with my approval) my lawyer and got her to straighten out everything before the closing day.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Tiverton, RI.

Joy works very hard and loves what she does! We sold our house quicker than expected and were very satisfied! She was attentive to our needs and was always there when we needed help. She took time out of her busy schedule to do open houses and mail out post cards. We would definetly recommend her to our friends and family!

Sold a home in 2014 in Melville, Portsmouth, RI 02871.

Joy is an extremely hardworking and focused professional. She goes the extra mile, and does not shy away from assuming any responsibilities that assure a successful outcome. To say she is tenacious is an understatement. There is no doubt in my mind that she will find a way to get the job done...I recommend her most highly!

Bought a home in 2014 in East Marion, Marion, MA 02738.

Working with Joy was an absolute, well, joy. As first time home-buyers, we were looking for an "old New England house." Being extremely knowledgeable in this facet of houses, Joy went above and beyond simply showing us listings. She was instrumental in pointing out the intricacies of each house we toured. We were most impressed that Joy pointed out the cautions with each listing. It was clear that she wanted to get us the perfect house, and not simply make a sale.

She stood by us for a number of whirlwind months, and ended up finding us a house THAT WASN'T EVEN ON THE MARKET! From months of working with us, and touring dozens of houses, Joy savvy and contacted sellers who had previously taken their houses off the market. Amazingly enough, our house was hidden among these listings. She stood by us during the negotiation process, which included many layers in addition to just price.

I would highly recommend Joy to anyone looking to buy a house in the SouthCoast region. It was such an amazing journey in our life, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide.

Sold a home in 2013 in Melville, Portsmouth, RI 02871.

Joy was hired to sell my mother's 30 year old mobile home. Though the commission on the property was minimal she worked tirelessly to represent our interests and went out of her way to show the house whenever someone called. The fact that the house sold in a few weeks was due to her diligence. She was wonderful to work with.

Sold a home in 2013 in Tiverton, Town of Tiverton, RI 02878.

Joy Gilkeson is outstanding!!! Having moved to Wyoming two years ago, it was not easy managing my home from so far away. Once I decided to put my house back on the market, I re-enlisted Joy as my agent. Who knew it would it would sell in less than a week! Joy went above and beyond and bent over backwards to complete the sale of my home. Would I recommend her? Absolutely!!! We learned that buyers and their agents are not always easy to deal with but Joy excelled in this somewhat trying transaction and proved that perseverence and dedication make it all happen. Thank you, Joy!!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Tiverton, RI.

I would highly recommend joy to anyone.We had a unique situation and she was right there for us. We had to hurdle over different loans because it was church leased land. It was new grounds for all of us.Everyone we dealt with were very impressed with her knowledge and intensity to help us. I truly believe we would not be in our dream house if we didn't have her.She pushed things to get done on a timely basis and succeeded! She is the best!!!
