What Joyce's Clients are Saying

"I’ve worked with Joyce twice now - once buying our home in MD and most recently while selling a family member’s rental property in VA. In both instances Joyce went far above and beyond what we would have expected. Incredible responsiveness, excellent understanding of the markets we were looking in, and felt like she was fighting for us every step of the way. We never felt pressured, always felt like we were her priority, and in the end we sold for significantly more than our asking price. She is a true professional and we will absolutely be reaching out to her for any future real estate needs we have in the future. "

                  -Mike Lanzo 

"It was a wonderful smooth process working with Joyce. If you needed a lawyer, you would want the best. If you work with Joyce, that is exactly what you are getting to assist you to Sell or Buy a home. She's savvy, smart, and an excellent negotiator. Experienced. I followed her recommendations to prepare my home for sale and trusted her assessment of market conditions. She was responsive to my needs. I decided to move out as quickly as possible. On my part a major downsize and decluttering and move to another state. Once my home was empty and sparkling, Joyce quickly held a well attended Open House. I accepted a great offer in a few days and was glad that Joyce was negotiating on my behalf with the Buyer's agent. If you require an experienced agent to sell your home as soon as possible, I highly recommend Joyce. She also helped me buy the home I sold."



"I met Joyce in 2007. She came highly recommended as a person that could help us buy our first home in Maryland. it was immediately clear that she knew the area very well, and that she knew what she was talking about. She was able to listen to our idea of the perfect home, she showed us several homes in the market and was able to point out pros and cons of each. In the end we were able to find our perfect townhome. It was a given then, that when we decided to upgrade to a single-family home, three years later, we would call up on Joyce’s expertise again. Once again, she did not fail us and after showing us a few homes on the market she pointed us to a perfectly priced home that just came to the market. Fast forward 13 years and when it came time to sell the home, once again, I called Joyce. Selling was a much more stressful experience, requiring much more work than I would have thought! Once again, Joycedemonstrated her knowledge and professionalism. She gave me great advices as far as the improvement needed, the timing and the pricing and she even helped me with finishing some cleaning details that a professional cleaning crew missed. I have known Joyce for 16 years and bought two homes and sold one with her and never did I have the impression that she was trying to get a quick buy or a quick sell and move on. Therefore, I could not recommend her more wholeheartedly, both for buying and for selling. I do not know if I will be buying a home again in this area, but if I do, you can guess who’s going to be my real estate agent! "


"I've now worked with Joyce twice. Each time she has been an invaluable resource for me. Through every step of the buying or selling process, she provides the necessary information at exactly the right time. As a first time buyer and later a first time seller, I would not have made it through without her assistance. Recently she helped me sell my condo and provided tips for work I should do to the unit before putting it on the market. Despite some issues with the building my condo was located in, we got our first offers in a matter of days and eventually accepted the best offer, which turned out to be for a better price than we ever expected. I am very grateful to have had Joyce on my side for selling my condo."


"We engaged Joyce to help us sell our home in Silver Spring at the beginning of 2023. As the remainder of this review will attest, we benefited greatly from Joyce’s real estate experience and her knowledge of the market. In late 2022 we approached Joyce about representing us. She took time to meet with us to understand our goals and help set expectations, shared her thoughts with us on how we could effectively stage our home, and discussed the importance of timing in putting our home on the market. She arranged for really exceptionally excellent photographs of our home and took care in writing an engaging description of our home and neighborhood. When it became apparent that there was interest in our home from multiple buyers, Joyce advised that we should hold off on reviewing offers until a date certain and communicated this to the buyers’ agents. As a result, within five days of putting our home on the market we received multiple competitive offers and accepted one that exceeded our asking price. Joyce was truly an effective advocate and sounding board from start to finish. We would not hesitate to have her represent us again. "

"Joyce helped us purchase a home years ago and sell a home this year. She is a professional with a friendly demeanor and strong moral compass. I would recommend Joyce to new home buyers and sellers as well as experienced real estate buyers and sellers."

                -Jordan Abramson

"Joyce Rausnitz is a professional in every way. She knows what she is doing.  We got 14 offers in 5 days! $45,000 over asking price! She is our Realtor for life!”


"Joyce is a top notch realtor who creatively went above and beyond at every turn. She asked the right questions to find out what I wanted. When inventory was low in my target neighborhood, she sent letters to all the owners to see if anyone was ready to sell. Once we found the right property, she expertly navigated the negotiations and helped me beat tough competition to secure the perfect house. Leveraging her considerable emotional intelligence, she provided me frequent counsel and wisdom throughout the inevitable ups and downs of the home buying process and connected me to her vast network, including but not limited to a mortgage banker through whom I secured a great mortgage rate. I would wholeheartedly recommend Joyce to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home!"
