Joy Daniels, Broker/Owner
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.
