What clients are saying...
Our experience with Joy and Don and Shorewest was nothing short of fantastic! Aside from selling our house in 3 days, Joy and Don spent time explaining all the options for selling our home. They were always available when we had questions and judiciously communicated every step of the way so we weren't left wondering about the status of the sale. Joy demonstrated a high level of competence when negotiating our final closing date. They also took the time to show us many homes on the market that we were considering for purchase. We never felt that we were infringing on their time. We would highly recommend them and Shorewest for all real estate needs.
My family's world changed in ways we never knew were possible with the AMAZING support from Team Pouwels. 8 years ago they listed our condo and it was sold in record time!! Then they assisted us in finding the house of our dreams and were SO PATIENT as we looked at many homes to find that perfect one. 7 years later they were once again right by our side assisting us in finding a cabin in the woods to share more family memories with our 2 boys. Don and Joy are extremely intelligent, motivated, hard-working, HONEST, caring and truly want to see their clients happy. These two love their jobs and it shows because they produce quality work!
We only refer people that we ABSOLUTELY 100% believe in and trust. This is why, to this day, if we hear of anyone remotely thinking about buying or selling a home, we immediately direct them to Team Pouwels. They truly do help make dreams become a reality! They have been a true blessing in our lives and we are forever grateful for all the hard work they have provided to our family. Thanks again Don & Joy!
I would highly recommend Joy Pouwels to anyone looking to buy or sell your next home. Joy asked us the right questions to find out our wants and needs in a new home. Joy put in the work needed to line up a number of houses for us to view that fit our wants and needs. After we found the home we wanted Joy made everything very easy to close the deal. I would absolutely use Joy again if we were to move again.
I wanted to share our Sincere thanks to Don Pouwels and his team. They were amazing. Don listed 2 single family rental homes for us in the Green bay area. They were a good distance from our home in Port Washington and we were a little nervous going in. But Don and his team made it so easy and so successful. The paperwork, pix, marketing, tough price negotiations, assisting with excellent contractors before and after inspections and a closing team that just rocked. The teams hard work, experience and professionalism are top notch. Thanks Again Don. CP Port Washington, WI
Working with Joy was a wonderful experience! She listened to what we were looking for and did a great job helping us find it.
It was a pleasure to work with Joy Pouwels on purchasing my new home. Her expertise and knowledge on the entire process helped me more than once when I was getting conflicting information from other parties involved in the purchase. She was always very quick to respond to my questions and requests. I will definitely refer her to all my friends as an awesome realtor. She is definitely five stars!
We started working with Joy approximately 2 years ago. She tirelessly showed us so many homes off and on throughout that time. It took us a while to truly decide it was time to move and we couldn't have chosen a better realtor. Joy has been nothing short of amazing to work with! Her positive energy, professionalism and willingness to do whatever we needed was felt throughout every interaction we have had with her. Every time I sent her a text, she responded immediately. When we waffled, she responded with understanding and compassion. She understood the kind of home we were looking for and kept us informed when something new came on the market that she thought would be a good fit. She eventually helped us find and negotiate the purchase of our new home. Once our offer was accepted, Joy immediately helped us price our existing home optimally, had professional pictures taken and had it listed within a few days. Less than a week later, we received 2 offers on our home that were ABOVE our asking price! We did not have time to worry or stress out. Everything just fell into place beautifully. This was hands down the easiest purchase and home sale we have ever had and we owe it all to Joy. If you are looking for a new home or ready to sell your home, we highly, highly recommend her! Joy was truly a blessing for our family!
The Pouwels Team went out of their way to find us a cute Lake Cottage! We are overjoyed that we are settling into our new lake life . It would not have happened without their help!
We worked with Joy on the sale of our previous home as well as completing the purchase of our current home. Every step of the way Joy made us feel confident we were getting good advice and being guided expertly through the process. Communication was excellent and we were always prepared for next steps. If you are looking for an experienced, hard working, and very knowledge realtor then look no further.
It took us nearly 5 years to find our dream home. They actually found exactly what we had been hoping for. The Pouwel team did not make us feel any pressure during these years. They were very supportive and pleasant to work with during the entire time. We would definitely recommend them.
Joy went above and beyond to get our home in Green Bay. She kept in contact with us through out the whole process. When things looked bleak she was there with a pep talk. We found out that our offer had been accepted on a Sunday night from Joy. Joy is a true professional. Thank you.
Working with Team Pouwels has been smooth and easy. They hyper-communicate and they did what they said they would do. I highly recommend Joy and Don. They are a pleasure to work with.
Joy & Don are an amazing team! So much so, that this is the second time we have used them for the sale and purchase of homes. They are very experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to knowing the ever changing market. They thought of everything even before we asked. They were always readily available to meet our needs. We were very blessed to have them guide us through such an important transaction!
Joy & Don are great to work with, very responsive and have their client's best interests at heart. It is an absolute pleasure to work with them and they make the real estate process fun!
We couldn't have been happier with Joy! She was thrown onto our house search team after an injury to another agent but she gave us all of the attention we needed. She answered all of our questions, which were many as first time buyers. She gave us tips to think about when looking for a good home. Once we made an offer she worked hard on the weekend she was out of town to make sure it was accepted. She truly helped us every step of the way and was a wonderful person to work with.
We are so fortunate to have had the opportunity to be represented by such a knowledgeable and professional realtor. Joy Pouwels went above and beyond to keep us well informed throughout the process of our sale and purchase. Something that particularly stands out to us is that as we house hunted, we were asked by the various selling agents who we were working with. Almost all knew of Joy and would tell us we were in the best hands possible. That was a pretty cool feeling! Thank you Joy - thank you Team Pouwels for being there for us from start to finish and beyond!
I had a great experience working with Don and Joy Pouwels while looking at duplexes to purchase. They were very helpful and made the process of finding and buying real estate simple. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase property or real estate.
Joy and Don provided excellent advice and guidance through our recent move and home purchase. Their honesty, integrity, caring, compassion and realistic approach kept everything in proper perspective as well as made certain that things were taken care of. Joy even gave me a ride to the airport when I had to fly back to AZ! They went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. We are thrilled with our new home and are happily becoming a part of the community here.
Joy was phenomenal! We met her at an open house was mesmerized by her positive attitude and proactive guidance. She set us up with automatic listing alerts and suggested a wonderful lender to us. Within 2 months of walking into her open out she helped us find our house and we had closed. As first time home buyers she was very thorough and helpful. She never pressured us and always gave us a fair perspective on the houses we viewed. She explained the pros and cons of each house and what would help or hinder our resale value. We very much appreciated her service to us!
We are extremely thankful to have worked with Team Pouwels on the recent sale of our house! Both Joy and Don were readily accessible to answer our questions, any time of day, and gave sound advice that we could trust. Throughout the process of listing and marketing our home, we trusted their knowledge of the local market and their aptitude to sell. As an added bonus, they made the entire process feel relaxing and manageable with their encouragement and sense of humor! We believe it was a combination of Joy and Don's expertise, honesty, tenacity, and hard work that sold our house in less than three weeks. We highly recommend working with Joy and Don to anyone looking for the best the business has to offer. They made what could have been a stressful and uncertain process feel manageable and settling. Work with Team Pouwels, and you too will have lots to be thankful for!
It couldn't be better!!! Very helpful.
They are best in class and make this stressful process fun and enjoyable. We will only work with Joy and Don for any of our future needs and I recommend them to everyone looking to buy or sell.
Team Pouwels just sold the Home that Joy Pouwels help me buy 18 years ago. The listing was in late July 2016, Offer August 2016 and closed on Sept. 30th 2016. Don was very helpful during the entire process. If you are looking for a Team with years of experience and expertize please contract Team Pouwels. My Wife and I also purchased our new home with help of Team Pouwels. 5 Stars Best, Dan and Cathy Vanden Heuvel
Working with Joy was hands down phenomenal. When I first met her and got referred to her I was looking for a home. Over time that switched to looking for property, and at times switched back to homes. She continuously listened to my desires and put forth way above expected effort to help me. She always returned phone calls, text messages, and appointments in such a timely manner. I know I still could contact her at any point for any reason and she would be just as energetic and happy to help. I truly enjoyed working with Joy and it made my first process of becoming a land owner for my future home WONDERFUL!
After 16 years in the same house my husband and I were nervous about buying and selling a home. We took the advice of a friend and called Joy Pouwels. I'm so glad we did. Joy was professional, knowledgeable and patient with our many questions. I have and will continue to highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor.
Joy and Don were great to work with and walked us through the entire process as this was our first time selling a home. From suggestions for staging the home, taking pictures and creating the listing they provided us with everything we needed. Working with them to coordinate showings was simple and straight forward. They are great at marketing and getting results. Our house sold for over asking price in less than 48 hours on the market! Oh and to top it off they worked with us to find the perfect house to move into and made that process easy as well. Thank you Team Pouwels!
We worked with Joy on an estate sale, her professionalism and helpful, pleasant attitude made the process easier than we had expected. We are grateful to her for her help through the process. She was excellent to work with and I highly recommend her.
We received a referral to Joy Pouwels from family members and she didn't disappoint. Joy was a pleasure to work with, was up front about all details and immediately had showings scheduled just a day or two after we listed. We were really thrilled that she was available to come to us at our convenience. Considering we both work full time, she scheduled meetings and showings at times that worked for us. At no time did we feel she did not have time to take our calls or answer our questions. There was a time or two we met with Don, and he was articulate and easy to work with as well. Both were kind and considerate and we would recommend them in a heartbeat.
My wife Michelle and I had the tremendous pleasure of working with both Joy and Don. They are truly 'Team Pouwels'. The time that they spent both with us and on us in the sale was nothing less than amazing! They gave us relevant and tasteful advise on how to stage the house for the sale and gave us insightful wisdom in the negotiations. Once the house was sold, they blew our socks off with their knowledge and mental 'data base' of the homes on the market. They gave us their insight as to the resale and marketability of homes we looked at that made us feel truly special.
We were referred to Joy and Don by a realtor friend in Milwaukee. She knew how picky I was and said that these guys would be a great fit. She was right!!! Joy and Don did an amazing job working with the limited amount of time we were given to help us find our perfect home. They were also beyond amazing and accommodating of our two little boys that we had with us every day!! We are so blessed to have met them and will use them for all future moving adventures!!!
My wife and I had the pleasure to work with the Pouwel team and they did not disappoint! During the first visit, Joy made this transition very easy, simple and enjoyable. She was very thorough with the process and explained all the details to ensure that we knew exactly what was happening at all times. What we liked was that Joy was available at all times. There were times where we could talk with Joy in the morning, daytime and night - she always made herself available. Due to Joy's hard work, we were able to sell our house in 13 days.
I worked mostly with Don. he was very experienced with my type of purchase and he made it so easy to work a deal. Sometimes realtors give the impression they just want you to buy something... anything... just pick one already ! BUT, I truly felt like Don and I were a team working toward a common goal. And the best part is we won! I will be using the Pouwels team again. Thank you again! Lucas
They are a great team! Very professional and went out of their way to show us house after house at times that worked with our busy schedules. They knew what we were looking for and recommended great options for us to view! In the end they helped us purchase a lot to build a house in a great neighborhood! We have and will continue to recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
These two have been excellent to work with and I am so lucky to have found them. They provide exceptional service to all of the clients that I refer to them and have heard nothing but positive feedback from all that have worked with Joy and Don. They go above and beyond to make themselves available and meet the needs of their customers. I would have no problem ever referring them to family and friends. They are positive, hard working, motivated individuals who take their time to understand their customers needs and in the end they customer ends up with their dream home.
We began working with Joy after our house was on the market for 6 months. With no offers coming in we decided to change things up a little and reached out to Joy. Joy immediately gave us some quick things to do around the house to get it ready to relist. With in a month we had offers coming in and were quickly trying to find a new house to move in to. Joy was always available and happy to answer my phone calls, text messages and emails. I was new to this process so every step of the way she helped us answer questions and working our way thru to the end. Thank you Joy!
Both our selling and buying experience with Joy Pouwels/Team Pouwels was wonderful. Joy is knowledgeable, organized, professional and ... fun too. She listens and provides services tailored to you; her response time with information and answers is speedy. We had much confidence in Joy to sell our house as well as having her search for a new one to call home; she delivers positive results. She is a joy to work with!
When we decided to put our house on the market, our next door neighbor highly recommended that we give Joy a call as she had helped her sell her home. We are very happy that we took her advice. From the first time we met with Joy until our house sold, she was great to work with. She continually kept us updated as to the status and we always felt she was doing everything she could to create interest from potential buyers. She was readily available and always got back to us quickly when we contacted her. From the initial offer to the closing paperwork, we had no issues. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to sell their home.
Working with Team Pouwels was an absolute Joy ! My husband and I weren't exactly sure what kind of house we wanted to buy. We looked at over 30+ houses. The patience the team had with us was incredible. Every showing was done with professionalism and a smile. I've worked with other realtors in the past and never had such a pleasant experience. When we found our home, Team Pouwels was very helpful and knowledgeable on the next steps, etc. I highly recommend Team Pouwels to make your home buying experience a great one!
Our experience with Team Pouwels during our home purchase was amazing. Home buying can be complex in nature, and because this was our first home purchase, we had a lot of questions and uncertainties. But Don & Joy made us feel comfortable throughout the entire process by advising us, explaining the processes, and guiding us through the numerous phases involved with the purchase of our home. They were therre when we made our offer on our new home, and all the way through the closing of our home. We would recommend Team Pouwels to anyone!
Outstanding! Amazing! The Pouwels Team made our transition from Milwaukee to Green Bay quick and easy. Their professionalism and love for their job showed with every visit we made to Green Bay to look at houses. Due to the distance we wanted to make the most of our visits. On two separate occations Joy flawlessly scheduled more than 20 showings in one day. She presented us with a booklet of homes of interest including pictures and details of each home and a car full of snacks for the long day... Yum! She got to know our family and tailored our search until we found the perfect home.
Not being familiar with the Green Bay area, the Pouwels first hand knowledge of schools, churches, parks and activites was a huge help (and relief). They were able to answer all of our questions and we really can't say enough about Joy & Don. Although we were blindly referred to the Pouwels, we could have hand picked better realtors (or people) to help us find our new home. Their time and genuine kindness will always be remembered. Thank You Don & Joy!
Team Pouwels provided our family with exceptional service through both the buying and selling process. We primarily worked with Joy but spent time with Don, too. They both are personable, knowledgeable, and accessible. Joy was timely in answering questions, providing feedback and showing us homes. If she didn't know an answer or have a resource, she sought them out. She worked above and beyond to make sure that we had everything that we needed. If we had a hiccup, Joy was right by our side cheering us along and giving us any support necessary. In the end, when the market was slim in our desired area she worked with colleagues and ultimately, showed us our current home before it was even live on the MLS. Team Pouwels gave us personalized service. Joy respected our needs, was caring, and stood by her word. She worked tirelessly to make sure we got a fair price for our home and paid a fair price for our new home. We know Team Pouwels are top producers and they didn't treat us like a number, we felt like best friends. If we were to decide to sell again, we would not hesitate to contact Joy or Don. When we hear friends talk about wanting to sell their home, we will be certain to recommend Team Pouwels. We couldn't imagine selling or buying with anyone else.
My wife and I recently purchased a home, and we utilized the services of Team Pouwels on the sale of our existing home, and the purchase of our new home. Our home sold for its asking price with only less than a week on the market! We love our new home as well, and got very sound advice from them!
Our experience with Joy was amazing! She was incredibly patient, kind, knowledgeable and helpful. She was readily available for us and was great throughout the entire buying process!! We really enjoyed our time with her and she helped us find what we were looking for within our budget and timeframe. If you are looking to buy or sell, Joy is the person you want to call!
