Joy Daniels Real Estate Agent

Twenty-Five years ago, Joy Daniels had just become a Realtor and was juggling her role as a businesswoman while simultaneously being a wife and home schooling her son. Due to her hard work and passion for real estate, Joy quickly became the most sought-after multi-million dollar agent in Central Pennsylvania. With the help of her husband's business development skills, Joy and Chris started Joy Daniels Real Estate Group in 2010 with about four employees. In two short years, they have grown to 40 employees! Many people all over the United States often contact Joy on a regular basis, asking her, "What's the secret to your success?" The answer is amazing customer service and Joy's commitment to impacting the community through ethical business practices.

Joy has been a full-time Real Estate Agent for twenty-two years. She didn't earn a reputation as Central Pennsylvania's best real estate agent by chance, however. Joy's first job was at McDonald's! Joy is a "go getter"! She chose to pursue a career as a real estate agent because of her love for homes, both new and old and the desire to help people achieve their real estate needs. Although she has won numerous prestigious real estate awards, her "joy" and motivation is in serving her clients and community.

Joy has lived in Central Pennsylvania since she was 13. She adores living in a community of rich history and close proximity to major metropolitan areas such as Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City. Passionate about improving the local economy of Central Pennsylvania, Joy is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the PA Association of Realtors, the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors (GHAR) and is on the board for the GHAR Political Action Committee. She has also participated in many benefits for the Cancer Society, The American Heart Association and Children's Arthritis Foundation. JDREG also spearheaded the fundraising for ABC's Makeover: Home Edition for a Central Pennsylvania winner.

Joy and Chris have a blended family, albeit a very closely-knit one. Joy's stepson, Jeff, works as a Buyer's Specialist with JDREG, and coincidentally is married to the company's Chief Financial Officer! Joy also has a stepdaughter, Nadine, who has blessed them with a gorgeous granddaughter, Rachael. Joy's son, Jarad, now attends law school at George Washington University. Her mother-in-law lives with them in Harrisburg, and the family also has two cats: Winston and Olivia.

Joy attends the Harrisburg Campus of LCBC (Lives Changed By Christ). She is currently part of the church's initiative to mentor "20 Somethings". Specializing in Seller Representation, Joy likes being the "go to person" in the office, helping new agents learn the real estate industry and achieve their goals and aspirations. Joy is a leader in the community and strives to leave a legacy behind of hard work, commitment to her clientele, and ethical entrepreneurship

Customer Reviews

Christy was awesome! She sold our house in just a couple weeks. Hannah was also incredible keeping us up to date on everything.

Mel : on November 01, 2017

I want to say thank you very much for all of the help and support that you gave me over the last week or so. Even though I understand this is what you do for a living, you never made me feel like I was just another Buyer. I appreciate that tremendously. Thank you for being good people and treating me with respect even when things didn't go as I planned.

Nancy : on November 01, 2017

Just when I think I must sit down and write a note to you, along comes another kindess. We all need to thank you for your support along the way as well as your professionalism. We needed your expertise and patience. You saw us struggle through it all. We appreciate your help and friendship!

Sean & Lori : on November 01, 2017

We would like you to know how enjoyable it was working with you as we were making some of the most important decisions of our lives with your guidance. The process of both buying a home that met our needs and selling our property were less demanding on us because of the confidence that we had in you and your support and knowledge. Your personable yet resolute nature also added to such a satisfying working relationship. Please feel free to share our highest recommendations with potential clients as we would most definitely return to you for our real estate needs. We wish you continued success and hope that you know how much we truly appreciate all you have done for us. We love our home! Thank you again for all your help and efforts.

Shawn & Kelly: on November 01, 2017

Kelly and I wanted to extend our appreciation for all your hard work and assistance. It truly was a different and positive experience working with a "godly woman" throughout our house search and the sale of our home. Thanks for putting up with our indecisiveness at times......we were just searching for the right home for our family and we feel that we have found it. I will definitely refer you to our friends and relatives in the future. It is very obvious why you are so successful at your job. Thank you once again for all of your work and commitment at helping our family. Please extend our gratitude to your husband as well. Thanks for being a blessing in our lives!

Derrick & Crystal Bradley: on November 01, 2017

Working with Joy was truly a pleasure. Joy made purchasing our second home a wonderful experience. Her knowledge of the area was very helpful to us. The selections of homes that she showed us were top notch. Her webpage is very informative. Joy was more than just our real estate agent she became a friend. We could call Joy at any time, and she would respond immediately to any questions that we had. Because of her dedication and caring for the people she represents we would gladly refer Joy Daniels to our friends, family and co-workers. We can't thank Joy enough.

Evan Lock: on November 01, 2017

I never expected to work with a realtor that would exceed my expectations like Joy Daniels did. For example, I expected to sell my parents’ house in 300 days, if I were lucky. Joy told me it would sell in less than 30 days. After ­only 3 days, we had 3 bids and sold the house for more than the asking price—in a down market! I had doubts when Joy told me she had the support of a great team. This too was under-promised and over-delivered. Her team published an impressive web site for the property within 24 hours from when I agreed to have Joy represent us. I think the longest I had to wait for a reply to an email was overnight and the typical response was in an hour or two. They anticipated my every need around closing. I found Joy to be honest, prompt, fair and insightful. It’s no surprise she’s a top seller in the Harrisburg area. I would heartily recommend her to represent you.

Sue Smith: on November 01, 2017

I think selling family properties can seem a daunting and emotionally charged task, especially when one is doing so from 1000 miles away. I was fortunate enough to have a good friend recommend the JOY DANIELS REAL ESTATE GROUP to me when I needed help marketing my own home and an inherited family homestead. The universe smiled even more when Sheri Walker was the person at the Joy Daniels Group who took on the job of helping me. Both properties had distinct challenges but also distinct charm. Sheri worked very hard on my behalf and drew on the strengths of other members of the team at Joy Daniels as necessary. The outside experts were found, and the necessary work was done to both places to spruce them up and highlight their best aspects. Not only does the company have great people on their staff, but they also work with quality, reputable individuals when additional tasks are needed to best position a place to sell. I found it to be a process that went along remarkably smoothly all things considered. I felt like I was nurtured and nudged, respectfully but firmly, and they sold both places in a very reasonable period of time.

A good experience with Rich but the process of not knowing the amount of the appraisal until the end was very unnerving. I was very stressed the entire time.
