Testimonials of Joy Farenden
While we were out of the country - SOLD 10/26/16
"While we were living out of the country, Joy recently sold our home in the Coachella Valley. She managed the whole process with professional care and attention, firstly by carefully understanding our needs and priorities as sellers and then giving clear advice on how best to present the property. She then kept us closely informed on interest from potential buyers and continued to provide support until Escrow was concluded in an efficient and timely manner. We really appreciate her close support particularly as we were not present."

Joy, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart
'Joy, I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the excellent representation and
professionalism you and your staff provided our family during the recent selling of my Aunt's home in Palm Desert. From the moment we met, I knew we had chosen the right agent. You provided us with spot-on guidance and assistance during the preparation of the home for sale. Even when faced with a septic tank/sewer line conversion issue, you worked hand in hand with us to overcome that and other challenges in a timely and efficient manner.
Your accurate analysis of market conditions and a thorough knowledge of the area enabled the
home to have multiple offers and to sell in a timely manner. Your use of technology enabled all
parties to complete the required documents quickly and correctly. I am happy to recommend
your services to anyone considering the desert area.
Hats off to you and your staff for a job well done. Thank you.'

Happy Homeowners - August 2018
My husband and I have purchased several homes together and can say without question that Joy is truly one of the best agents weâ€™ve ever encountered. Not only is she as her name implies, a â€śjoyâ€ť to be with, sheâ€™s extremely thorough in her research and knowledge of the Coachella Valley area and its properties. Joy guided us enthusiastically through the process of locating our forever home, and we would recommend her highly to anyone in search of their next property.

As we discussed, this was not the easiest of sales for both my husband and myself emotionally as well as the issues we had with the buyer but throughout it all you remained calm and steadfast and I truly appreciate it. In all honesty the marketing of the house (the video) is priceless to me as it truly showcased the beauty of a home we loved so much.
Anyway who chooses you to represent them will be well taken care of.

SOLD - March 2019
I wanted to thank you so much for first referring Joy to my husband, Mel Smith and I regarding our personal Palm Desert home. When we did decide to sell, I called Joy immediately. Joy gave us a professional analysis of the market and a value range for us to decide where to list. As a 40 year realtor and Mel also in the business, I appreciated her approach and expert marketing presentation.
We listed the property, under our competition, and Joy had an offer for us within days. That first escrow ended up cancelling but she continued to market our property and in the end was successful selling our home to her own client. The beautiful photography, video and mailings she provided were top notch.
This was such a wonderful escrow knowing we had Joy handling everything. Equity Title also did everything we needed along with coordinating funds to another escrow here in Santa Barbara. Joy treated us exactly how I treat my own clients, and I have already given her name to several friends that want to look in the area.
I just wanted you, as her manager, to know about our experience. You are most fortunate to have her in your office and for us to have her part of our Coldwell Banker family.
