What Joyce's Clients are Saying

"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. "

"Working with Joyce on purchasing a house was the absolute best experience. From start to finish, Joyce was on our side, looking out for our best interests along the way. Her years of experience will ensure that you will be prepared for any situation that comes along. If you want an excellent real estate agent who will work hard for you, look no further! Joyce is the absolute best!"

                 -Ryan Kind

"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!"  

                       -Matthew Monaco

"Joyce came highly recommended from multiple friends who all had raved about her for years. My expectations were sky high and Joyce delivered! She is highly responsive. When properties hit the market, she got us in to see them that same day. She also really knows how to structure a winning offer--our offer was selected from among three others. She has great working relationships with loan officers, which meant that we also got great treatment from the bank. And Joyce's attention to detail saved us some closing costs when she found a mistake in the closing documents."

               -Brian Math

"Joyce is top notch, attentive and knows all the potential pitfalls and steers you clear of them, never hesitating to take on the actions and tasks needed off your plate and get them done really fast!"

              -Eli Neumann


"I started the process of buying an apartment with very little information about the process (or even what I was really looking for). Fortunately, I had Joyce's invaluable support on my home buying journey. Joyce was extremely knowledgeable, patient, and attentive during the process, which was  essential, particularly for a first time homebuyer in an intense real estate market. I loved that she proactively offered advice and tips along the way, but never pressured me at any point. Having worked with her (as several of my friends have before me), I can attest that she is totally committed to helping clients find the right home for them. I am so pleased with how things turned out, and look forward to keeping in touch. Suffice it it say, I recommend Joyce without hesitation!"

                        -Gabrielle Plotkin 


"Joyce was more than one could even dare to hope for in a real estate agent. She is much more than a real estate agent--she is a friend and practically family. She went above and beyond to help with a move across the country to Maryland. She relentlessly advocated for our best interests at every turn  and ensure we got exactly what we wanted. She always got the necessary information when we needed it and was patient when needed. There is nothing she won't do to ensure her clients get the best and exactly what they want. She is kind, attentive, and a consummate professional. We are so grateful for her. We give her the highest recommendation possible. Joyce is the BEST."

              -Tricia Bacon

"Joyce was such a pleasure to work with! She was very responsive and available throughout the entire home searching and buying process. She answered our questions and went above and beyond in every aspect of our interactions. She truly cares about helping her clients. Thanks to Joyce, were able to  buy our dream house!"

             -Greg & Jenna Constable


"Since day 1 to now (after 1 month of closing) Joyce has been a SUPER AWESOME team partner. Her support in every sense, made this stressful process a better one, always responsive at all times, except for some few moments i know she wanted me to think and process all the information and  situations...... negotiated the best impressive way ever, she knew what she was doing at all times, even from her vacations she was in charged of EVERYTHING! i felt i needed her so much for every advise, and she certainly was there, even more than an agent, but as a friend, a mom to look up to...... i will happily repeat it !!! Totally recommend her!!! i loved her in this process and love her now! i know this was the beginning of something special!

             - Yanina Coiscou

"Joyce is a gem. A few years ago a friend referred us to her when we needed help finding a great apartment for rent in NW DC on a tight timeline. So when it came to buying for the first time, we knew we could rely on her, especially regarding single-family homes in Maryland. She walked us through  every step of the complicated home-buying process with patience, always presenting the options and trusting our decisions. Because she got to know our preferences so well, she flagged an upcoming listing early for us so that we could prepare a strong but comfortable offer in advance of the sellers' consideration deadline. She's an able advocate for her clients and a wealth of knowledge. We can't recommend her highly enough."
