My Client Reviews
My wife and I started working with Joy on a set timeline--we needed to buy our first home before our first child comes in June. Now we're a month and a half away from her due date and we've just moved into a great house in a nice neighborhood. Joy and her staff worked tirelessly in the midst of an insane housing market (we won our seventh offer) to find us our home, and once we won our contract, Joy's negotiations with the selling agent got us a brand new roof. Our baby--and our family--will have lots of room to grow in the years to come, and we're so grateful to Joy for making that happen for us.
Smart, accommodating and will go the extra mile to make issues right. Whether it's questions, warranties, loan process and/or getting estimates. Home buying process was relatively easy and fun. Will always use Joy Boykin in the future. Thank you, Joy.
Joy was fantastic. She answered every question I had and if she wasn't sure , she found out right away. She helped my sister and I both find the perfect house. I highly recommend her to everyone, you will not regret it, I promise .
We are so thankful for Joy and her staff. Any phone call or text was answered asap with detailed instructions or information that we needed to know. We felt very comfortable with her advice, knowing she had experience in real estate and knowledge of the area surrounding Nashville and Nashville. We received offers for the house quickly and closed within a month. Thank you Joy. It was a pleasure.
Mrs Joy and her team are beyond Exceptional. I have so many wonderful things I could say about my experiences with the team.

Pat, Thank you so much for the rate and review, greatly appreciated. Joy & Cindy
Joy lives up to her name! She helped me find a house in 2014 and sell it five years later. What we thought was going to be an easy buying experience in 2014 turned into an unexpected short sale, and Joy and her assistant Cindy held my hand and kept me from having a complete meltdown as the closing on the house got delayed again and again. After I finally got into the house, I continued to contact Joy over the next five years when I needed help finding repair people or had other house-related questions. When I decided to sell the house, Joy was the only realtor I considered using, even though I have four or five friends who are realtors, because I knew her expertise level was so high and she was so easy to work with. We hit some bumps while trying to schedule the closing of the house. One was due to my misunderstanding and miscommunication to Joy of when I wanted to close, so Joy & Cindy carefully worked through the issue with me and came up with a solution that worked for me and the buyer. Later, the buyer made the mistake of co-signing a loan for a car just a couple of weeks before the closing, and once again I felt confident things would work out because of Joy's experience. She was able to give me a breakdown of what that mistake meant as far as how long it might delay the closing. She and Cindy patiently answered all my questions and reached out to the other realtor for updates when I just couldn't stand the silence anymore, and never made me feel like I was bothering them. I highly recommend Joy to any seller or buyer.
Very positive attitude and helpful. Joy and Cindy make a great team and get things done.

Buying a house is a stressful thing. Joy and her staff made it much easier in us. I would recommend her to anyone.
Greg & Celia T.
It has been a great experience. You were great to work with and very professional. We are very pleased with things as a whole. We are doing a lot of painting and cleaning. Great with all the suggestions and ideas about several issues we need to change. Very helpful in getting things done with the sale. Knowledgeable in every aspect of the whole process. Aware of all the things we needed.

Joy and Cindy worked hard during the entire process to make selling our house as seamless as possible. When an issue would arise, they handled it with grace. We were able to get much more money than we originally thought and it was due to their hard work and dedication to our family.
My husband and I moved here from FL in 2011 and when no other real estate agent would help me and find the time I needed to find a home to live in, Joy was the one that attended to my needs with gusto. She spent countless days and numerous hours helping us find our home. Could not have asked for a better realtor.
Kyle & Priscilla R.
Joy was absolutely fantastic and we will send everyone we know in this market her way for her services. She told us what to fix to get top dollar and got 2 offers on the house in 24 hours and closed in 7 days with a cash offer. Will absolutely use in the future if need be.
Joy was easy to work with and extremely nice and down to earth. I would definitely recommend her to anyone.
Working with Joy and Cindy was a pleasure. Cindy was always available to answer questions and Joy would keep me informed all through the process. Although I live in another state; it didn't present a problem to them as they are set up to handle documentation electronically.(No trips to Fedex) I feel that Joy negotiated with the buyers representative to get me the most for my property.

Joy worked with us for almost 3 years in our search to buy our first home. As a retired military family we started our search while stationed overseas. Joy meet with my mother and skype with us while she walked through the houses showing us them. Her professionalism and dedication were above amazing. She was knowledgeable of the local area we were looking in and shared her advice on neighborhoods. Communication was great, we received emails with market updates for the area we were looking in and listing of houses that meet our requirements. Joy responded to our phone calls and emails within 1 -2 days at the latest if not immediately. Joy worked tirelessly to get us in a home and when the first one did not work out she jumped right in and started the search again. When we finally found our new home and with Joy's hard work, dedication, and amazing negotiating skills she got us everything we asked for. As first time home buyers she walked us through the whole process, answered a 1000 questions patiently, sometimes more than once, and made the entire process smooth and easy. After closing Joy continued to send useful and helpful information. I would highly recommend and would most defiantly use her again!!

Working with Joy has been a pleasure. She was very attentive to what we wanted in our sale and worked hard to address every issue. We highly recommend her! You will not be disappointed!
When it came time to sell our family home place of almost 60 years, we never considered any other realtor than Joy Boykin. Not only is she a trusted and honorable member of the Joelton community, Joy has the reputation of being a first-class realtor. She was so sweet with my aged parents and they could not have been happier with the way the sale was handled. She helped with decisions about how to list the house and ways we could realize the most profit. We could not have done this without Joy! We ultimately ended up making a good profit over the asking price, which will ensure that Mom and Dad will live comfortably for the rest of their lives. Thanks to Joy and Coldwell Banker! Highly recommended!!

Danny, Thank you so much for such a wonderful, sweet review. Cindy
Joy is an absolute genius! She found me the prefect property and without her help I would have had to settle for less. When it came to negotiating the price, she got me a great deal. As a first-time buyer, I was so glad to have her on my side!
Response from Joy
Charles, Thank you so much for such a great review, greatly, greatly appreciated. Joy
I have known Joy for many years. Since she lives in Joelton,she has her pulse on what is happening locally. She is dedicated, knowledgeable and has the personality needed in the real estate world. This is the 3rd time I have used Joy and we plan to use her services to sell our family home in Joelton. She is a joy to know!
Joy is a true joy to do business with! We bought our house with Joy in 2008 and sold it in 2016 and made a good profit. She will not pressure you and will check out anything you want. She has a tremendous knowledge of the local areas and real estate! We really love and appreciate Joy and her skills and patient, non-pushy attitude!
I felt that during the sale of my house, Joy knew exactly the person(s) I was looking for to take care of the home I had made for the past 20 years. Her personality is one that anyone and everyone can immediately feel comfortable with. Her experience and knowledge were very evident and timely. She knew without a doubt that "one person" that would make the right offer. I am forever grateful to her for her help and now her continued friendship. Joy is a professional, deligent and hard working agent. She will do the work it takes and offer suggestions to make your property desirable. Given the opportunity, I will suggest Joy to anyone looking for someone that you can trust to sell your home/ property.
When I was asked who we were going to use as a Realtor when selling our properties, no one but Joy Boykin came to mind. She is very professional, knowledgeable about the market and fully aware of what is happening in her area. Our meetings have always been friendly with attention to details and immediate needs, both before the sale and during the showing period. With Ms, Boykin I am expecting nothing but the same courteous service she has shown to be standard with each and every step of the process. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is even thinking about buying or selling real estate.
David & Phyllis C.
In 2009 Joy guided us through buying our house on Whites Creek Pike. She highly demonstrated her professionalism and knowledge as our agent. Recently we made the decision to sell our home to move closer to our children. There was absolutely no question in our mind as to who we wanted to guide us through this process. Joy is very knowledgeable of the area and keeps her Client's interest first. She is fun to work with and becomes part of your family as she guides you through the process. She is Number One in our book. Thank you Joy!
