JOY is the answer to all your real estate needs


Work with an agency who truly knows the Carolinas.

You don't want to entrust your home to just anyone - you want an agent who has your best interest in mind.

JOY Real Estate has grown up with Greenville and the surrounding region. We’ve been around since 1975. Although we are one of the larger firms in the area, we are still family owned. Why? Because we believe in treating everyone like family and building lasting relationships with our customers. Whether you’re selling your current home, or looking for your dream home, we are here to help you find just what you’re looking for. Our JOY Home Specialists will help you understand the dynamics of a sale or purchase, so you can make an informed decision. Our goal is to earn your trust so that we can assist you now, and in the future.


Think of us as family.

At JOY, we treat everyone like they're a part of our family.

No matter who you are—a customer or an agent—we believe in treating people with respect, dignity, and care. If we stand for any one thing, it’s family. We foster a true culture of community that extends to everyone we meet or engage with each day. Having been founded by Joy Bailey at a time when people thought “a woman can’t cut it in real estate,” we understand that success is based on hard work and a can-do attitude. It’s also based on earning people’s trust, which is very important to us. Our goal is to not just win your business, but to earn your loyalty and confidence. Because if we can make you happy, that means we’re doing a pretty good job.

Let us help you today.

What others are saying about us

“It was such a wonderful experience working with JOY Real Estate. Our agent was extremely helpful and professional every step of the way. I wouldn’t even consider working with any other firm. I highly recommend JOY Real Estate for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.”


“My JOY Real Estate agent offered fantastic guidance through the entire sale process. I actually sold my property for more than the listing price!”

R. White

“We were fortunate to find our JOY Real Estate agent. After we were contacted by two realtors in Greenville, we had our local realtor interview them both, recommending the JOY agent. She was an excellent choice, as she is extremely conscientious, promptly responding to our needs and questions, despite having to rely on information from the seller. And now that we’re moved in, our agent continues to be a source for services, and information about our new location. And we expect that we will remain friends with her.”

“My JOY Real Estate agent is just a great person. I appreciate all of her work. She treated me with respect and genuinely cared about my interests. She was careful to ensure that I got what was right for me.”

Gail C.

“My JOY Real Estate agent helped me sell my home immediately. We hit the Seller's Market in a frenzy—I'd never have gotten through it without her. We had two contracts on my house within 3 days. Our agent was always there for me, and took the time to explain the contracts and renegotiations carefully”
