As first time homebuyers, we needed a reliable, knowledgeable, and trusted advisor in our real estate agent to help guide us through the home buying process. We were fortunate enough to have Joyce Skowronski assist us with the important task of purchasing our first home.

Joyce was extremely hardworking and was always available to field any and all questions. She was available at all hours of the morning and night, even when she was on vacation with family. Joyce understands that being a real estate agent is more than just showing people houses and negotiating a purchase price. She assisted us in every facet of the home buying process including hiring a knowledgeable home inspector, mortgage information, referrals to various home experts, and evaluation of property. Furthermore, her knowledge of the towns in which she specializes was second to none. We always felt that we were her top priority. Joyce wanted to see us have a successful and smooth home transaction. Joyce’s dedication to us has extended beyond our closing date, in assisting us with any new homeowner inquiries.

Overall, the fact that Joyce thoroughly enjoys her job, translates to her commitment to meeting her clients expectations.

Happy in our new home,

Herb and Tyra Lohmann

Summary of their experience
My wife and I chose Joyce as our realtor after interviewing two others from the area. This was far from our first real-estate transaction but this deal was compicated by the additional processes and steps associated with a company relocation. Joyce was extremely well informed about the local area, specifics of the current real estate markets and very knowledgable about the process (including the additional steps entailed by the company relocation). Her market analysis was extremely detailed and comprehensive (she clearly had an encyclopedic knowledge of recent deals) and particularly as compared with those presented by the other realtors we talked to. This resulted in a listing price around 10% higher than that recommended by the other realtors but, as history showed, still very realistic.

Joyce did an excellent job giving us suggestions so the property would "show" well and of preparing listing materials (photographs etc) and of publicizing the property. Despite the fact I was traveling out-of-state during much of the process, she was very communicative and flexible in keeping us informed of the status of the listing, arranging showings and giving us feedback from prospective buyers. I'm happy to say we sold the property after 18days for 5% more than we hoped, and in much less time than I had feared.

Throughout the process I felt Joyce offered excellent professional service and realistic considered advice. Based upon our outcome and the overall experience I would have no hesitation in using her services again to buy or sell, and I have no hesitation in recommending her to others.

(Note: I've only given her 4 stars (from 5) for negotiation skills because there wasn't that much negotiating to do in this case).

We purchased a unit at Heritage Village and were thrilled to have Joyce Skowronski as our agent. We were not the easiest clients because we thought we wanted one thing and then changed our minds and wanted to take a different turn at least twice in the process. None of that mattered to Joyce. She never lost patience with us and always stayed focused on making us happy. She also helped us with the negotiations and gave us excellent guidance. We are so satisfied with the outcome -- we got a great unit at a perfect price, and we had lots of fun with Joyce throughout our 6-month search. It could have been a stressful process, but Joyce never let that happen. We strongly recommend her!!

I have been involved with many real estate transactions over the past ten years and have in turn dealt with many real estate agents. Joyce is hands-down the best agent I have ever dealt with - she always puts customer service first and she always had my best interests in mind. In regards to responsiveness, Joyce was actually on vacation and took the time to call and email 5-10 times per day - she negotiated an unbelievable deal for me on a fantastic house! Whether you are an investor or a first time home buyer, Joyce will provide unparalleled market expertise and the utmost dedication when it comes to meeting your needs! I would highly recommend Joyce to anyone who is buying or selling a home and wants the best real estate partner in the state of CT.

Joyce Skowronski handled the sale of my mother's two bedroom condo in a painless process for us. Pricing was very important as there were several other comparable condo's in the complex for sale. My mother's condo was priced well, staged and sold within a very short time. We were very pleased with Joyce's performance.

We used Joyce as our agent when purchasing our home. She was so knowledgeable and full of information about the areas we were looking in. Not just on houses but also the amenities around the areas, restaurants, shopping, traffic patterns, etc. It is not a surprise since she is a native to the area.

She was more concerned with our happiness then with her sale. She was very helpful in the negotiation and about the process in CT. This was important to us since we moved from out of state. She continued to keep in touch after the sale and we have become good friends. I find her advice and knowledge to be valuable as a new resident in CT.

I highly recommend Joyce for a agent whether you are buying or selling.

I've know Joyce for a few years now. First, when she showed me rental homes a few years ago and more recently when I was ready to purchase. Joyce is a true professional and extremely knowledgeable in her field. Her willingness to go above and beyond exceeded my expectations. She was available whenever I called and guided me through the process with honesty and sincerity. The key difference between Joyce and most agents is that she is passionate about what she does, and takes pride in helping her clients achieve their goals. Joyce Skowronski has earned a permanent place in my contact list and I plan on using her for all my future transactions.
