“My wife and I were long-time Lake Anna boaters with a dream of a waterfront lake home. I had also boated at Lake of the Woods while back in college and soon after I had met my now wife (30+ years ago). Joyce showed us a LOW home she had listed back in Jan/Feb 2019 and we liked it a lot but it was not the exact right time for us. She showed us several other homes and Sold us on the Lake of the Woods lifestyle and community. We went back to Northern VA and sold our home that next summer and then contacted Joyce. Joyce showed us several more homes in the Sep 2019 timeframe and we decided on one we really liked. However, during the home inspection phase we changed our mind. Joyce promptly showed us another home that has just hit the market and it was a great match for us and we were under contract within a few days. Joyce teamed with Tina McElroy, her colleague, and the two-member team was excellent - helping us through the offer phase, home inspection and all the way through closing and getting our owner cards. An outstanding experience - Joyce and Tina were both great to work with. And our "deal:" was not totally straightforward by any means. ”

“Joyce Henson sold us our beautiful home and kept in touch over the years with contractor recommendations. Her knowledge of our area, preparation for initial consultation and enthusiasm to sell our house convinced us she was the perfect choice to be our agent. Joyce was terrific to work with in all regards of the home selling process. Great advice, style and results. The photographer she lined up was great so our sales brochure and the online web sites looked fabulous. We highly recommend her services.”

Since meeting her she has been very helpful, insightful, and has shown a lot of expertise and knowledge about the area we were interested in moving to. Joyce has a lot of experience and has handled a lot of challenges in her time, so we knew she could handle any issue that might arise.

She was always only a phone call or an email away at any time of the day or night. At no time did we feel that we were on our own.

“I interviewed 3 brokers. I was most comfortable with Joyce. I was impressed with the brochure she made up for me. She worked tirelessly on my behalf in a very difficult market and with a very difficult buyer. She was always available when I called. She was very patient with me during a trying time I definitely would recommend Joyce. Her extensive experience in the real estate market shows through.”

“Joyce Henson was wonderful the 2 times I used her Real Estate services. My home sold as soon as it was listed. Really remarkable at the time. The vacant property took a little longer, but it was more about the market than Joyce. She was very helpful and I got the best price I could hope for. Great realtor, and became a good friend. Sorry I live in Wisconsin now, but Century 21 has always been a friend to me. Peg Manuel ”

“My wife and I were extremely fortunate to have had Joyce Henson lead us through the sale and purchase of two homes in Lake of the Woods. Joyce consistently answered our phone calls, text messages and e-mails; set up and met us for several weekend revisits to our new home; worked diligently with our mortgage broker to ensure all necessary documents were provided; and effectively led us through price & pre-occupancy negotiations, walk through, and final settlement procedures. If you're looking to buy or sell in Lake of the Woods, I strongly recommend choosing Joyce Henson as your real estate advocate.”
