Year after year Nancy has been designated one of the top 1% producers by the Chicago Association of Realtors, having sold more than $250 million in her 29 years in the business. Designated “Megabroker of the Midwest" by Unique Homes magazine, she has successfully negotiated over 400 real estate transactions. In addition to her broker’s license, she holds both the CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative) designations. A native of Chicago’s North Side, Nancy works primarily in the Gold Coast/Downtown, Lincoln Park and Lakeview areas.
From 2005 through 2007, Nancy was the sales director for the $52 million conversion of the Gold Coast’s iconic Ambassador West Hotel into 37 luxurious landmarked condominium apartments. She considers her extensive knowledge of all types of properties--from vintage landmarks to new developments--a necessity in working with her clients.
"You have to know the properties, selling prices and neighborhood trends; and then you have to do your very best to educate your buyers and sellers. Fortunately, I not only have lived in each of the neighborhoods where I do business, but I love what I do each day; so providing information and service is second nature to me. I knew my bit of this city even before I began to practice real estate: I did public relations for three major Chicago institutions: WTTW/Channel 11, WFMT Fine Arts Radio and Chicago Magazine."
Clients are saying:
"It has been an absolute joy to work with you!"
"My husband and I wanted to let you know of the recent superior performance of Nancy Joyce. We have been relocated to Atlanta by my husband's company, and consequently, had to put our recently rehabbed house in Lakeview up for sale. Because Nancy had sold us the house she knew of the time and money we had invested in converting the structure from a duplex to a single family unit. In this market, we had great concern about recouping our investment so shortly after the rehab. Largely through Nancy's marketing skills and her hard works, we obtained a contract for an acceptable price in merely one week on the market. That quick turn around allowed us to set our sights on Atlanta.
We believe we were able to obtain our desired price through Nancy's marketing skills. Other realtors who looked at the property saw only the negatives-- only two bedrooms and no basement. Nancy sucessfully positioned the property as a home with potential for four bedrooms because of the expandable attic. That positioning made all the difference in the way buyers perceived the property, and consequently, the price they were willing to pay.
In sum, Nancy is a valuable asset to your team, and a skilled real estate marketer. We will highly recommend her to any prospective clients."
"Nancy Joyce is the consummate Chicago residential real estate professional. Not only is she a highly effective marketer and savvy negotiator, Nancy is thorough, creative and persistent. When she sold our house, Nancy's laser-focused marketing strategy ensured that immediately scores of qualified potential buyers were clamoring to see the property. After 31 showings, 18 within the first weekend on the market, we had multiple offers to consider. My family and I are eternally grateful to Nancy Joyce for all her hard work."
"We can't thank you enough for all your introductions, invitations and helping us to feel a part of the City. We loved every minute. And a BIG thank you for all you did to ensure a successful sale! Your patience with us, your organization and professionalism were outstanding!"
"We have truly enjoyed working with you. We appreciate all the advice you have given us, and we share your love for this great city!"
