Joyce was very informative and professional in the handling the entire transaction of our home purchase. She went above and beyond to ensure we put forth a sound offer for our home which was in a highly competitive market. Because of her unitive guidance and proactive approach, we were the selected buyers. Joyce’s experience and professionalism resulted in the perfect buying experience for us. We extend many thanks to her and her team in all their effort on making our dream home a reality. We highly recommend her for any buying or selling of any property. Thank you Joyce and tram!

Joyce has no peers in my experience. She helped us to point out issues with the property we were interested in purchasing. Recognizing these issues and with the knowledge to know the value of repairs/replacements helped lower the final price. Having worked with numerous contractors in many different fields Joyce knows who she can trust to do a job competently and right the first time. She shares this information with her buyers so any further work needs are more easily taken care of.

My husband and I recently closed on our first home. Jenn and Joyce were absolutely amazing to work with! They were always available to answer any questions, and very patient with us being a first time home buyer. I truly felt like they had our best interest in mind throughout the entire process. I cannot say enough good things about Jenn and Joyce, and would not hesitate to recommend them to all our friends and family!

We love the HOMECOURT team. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and you feel like a part of the family! Joyce has taken realtor to the next level with the amount of personal care, honestly and handholding for this stressful process. One of the top agents in the Fox Valley area. I love that Joyce gives back to the community is numerous ways and has built 10 houses for people who need support in hard times.

I strongly recommend HomeCourt Real Estate if you are entering the market to buy or sell your home. Joyce and Jenn are true professionals in every way. Through their persistence and hard work, I was able to find the perfect house for my needs in a highly competitive sellers' market, and at a price below what I was willing to spend. I could not be more pleased.

Joyce was wonderful to work with and is highly recommended. We moved to her area from out-of-state during the pandemic and knew the market was going to be a difficult one. Joyce was on top of whatever scarce homes came on the market and made herself available at all times to adjust to the challenging an quickened home purchasing process. She was honest with us about homes we looked at (pros/cons) and we valued her years of experience and insight of the community. Most certainly, we would use her again.

Joyce and Jenn did an amazing job helping my husband and I find our home. This market has been so competitive and we really leaned on Joyce’s experience and advice as first time buyers. We felt like we were in such good hands throughout the entire process and ended up finding our dream house. I’d highly recommend any buyer to work with HomeCourt Real Estate!

I cannot recommend Joyce highly enough!!! We were first-time home buyers and Joyce made the process absolutely seamless. She was highly knowledgeable, accessible, responsive, reassuring, patient, kind, and an excellent negotiator. She walked us through every step of the process. We always felt informed and empowered. Joyce was not only instrumental in our home-buying process and acclimating to our new town, but she continues to keep in contact with her clients years after their closings. She remains a source of support and knowledge for us, always available to recommend vendors and provide advice. Not only is she outstanding at what she does, she is a trustworthy, kind, salt-of-the earth person. I am so grateful to her for all she has done for us! I give her my highest recommendation!!

We moved from California to Illinois, so, much of the house hunting process was done over Facetime. Not ideal. But the reason we could make it work was because of Joyce Courtney. She was amazing. She provided great insight to each and every house we looked at. She really understood what we wanted and helped us find the perfect fit. She's attentive, responsive and detail oriented-- all things that as first time home buyers, we really needed. We knew we wanted to live in the Tri-Cities and there is no one with more connections there than Joyce. Need a plumber? She's got one. A contractor? No problem. Joyce has her finger on the pulse of the community-- we've been in our house now for two months and she's still helping us navigate everything. When our signing was taking longer than expected she even drove to the house to let a cleaning crew in for us. If you're looking for someone with unmatched experience, who can roll with the punches, expertly assess the value of a home, and get you an answer to any question you might have-- big or small-- Joyce is the realtor for you. Can't recommend her enough.

Joyce and her team are great! They always responded very quickly to our questions and if they didn’t know the answer would get the info for you. They live in the area so they know all about the neighborhoods and taxes. Really appreciated the moving kit we received with helpful tools to move. Thanks Joyce!

Joyce was a pleasure to work with in the purchase of our home. We have had multiple realtors recently and Joyce is by far the best. We felt very comfortable with her recommendations and felt that she had our best interests in mind. I would give a 10 out of 10 for Zillow's profile questions if I could. Even after the close, she has reached out to us to see if we need anything and to follow-up on our transition. Furthermore, she has a wonderful team as well to facilitate any concerns or questions that may arise.

Zillow Reviewer who helped me buy and sell homes in Saint Charles, IL 60174.

Joyce did an awesome job evaluating our home prior to listing, knowing the market, helping us set a listing price, staging our home and having Jenn take the pictures. Bottom line: sold our home in one day for full ask. You can’t do better than that.

Client Testimonials

Working with Joyce and Home Court Advantage was a great experience. Joyce was able to walk us through the entire process which made it easy because it had been a long time since we sold a house. Joyce was very professional and serious about the process. I would highly recommend her.
Maria D., St. Charles, IL

Outstanding experience working with Joyce Courtney, and her company, from first contact through sale and activities after sale. Joyce provided outstanding advice on pricing, marketing and negotiations, when multiple offers were received. We could not have asked for a more personal individual to help us sell the townhouse; truly a joy to work with. The townhouse was listed on Friday and sold the following Monday. Joyce also provided an invaluable reference for an individual to help us move all belongings out of the townhouse, a task we could not have done on our own. Also worth noting are Joyce’s philanthropic activities supporting those less fortunate through food drives (two and four legged friends), fashion shows, home building, etc. Without any doubt, we would highly recommend Joyce and her staff if you are thinking of selling your property.

Geoff, Westmont IL

Joyce helped us sell our first home in St Charles, IL, put us in contact with wonderful realtors in South Carolina when we considered retiring there, and then helped us find our current home in Huntley. We would not have considered anyone else when we decided to look for a larger home nearby, and she’ll be helping us sell our current home, now that we found one. Joyce is very professional, offered excellent advice, and we couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.


I have worked with Joyce Courtney and The Homecourt Real Estate team on a number of residential transactions. Their professional and prompt attention along with the their market knowledge and local network has made my experiences five stars! I am never in doubt with any purchase or sale. I highly recommend Joyce Courtney and The Homecourt Real Estate team! Cheers!

J. Funderburg, MBA

We met Joyce after we noticed she had sold a home in a particular area of St. Charles we were interested in. We worked with her to see a number of homes in that area. We ended up finding a new construction subdivision in Wheaton but hired Joyce to sell  our townhome. Joyce worked very hard in an unprecedented pandemic time and was eventually successful in finding us a buyer. Joyce is diligent, professional and hard  working. She served us very well and we would recommend her to others!!

Chris Baker

Joyce and her entire team are an absolute pleasure to work with! She has helped us with two home sales and two home purchases over the years. Her knowledge of the market and her commitment to her clients is fantastic. I would recommend Joyce and her team to anyone!
Amanda Campana

This was my first experience selling a home and Joyce guided me through each step with patience and care! I learned a lot and am grateful to her for all she did to make the sale a success!
Ellyn Stewart

Thanks Joyce and team!  You were great with answering all of our questions and helping us form a team.  Loved the moving kit which will help our moving day go smoothly.
Elizabeth S.

There are many Real Estate Professionals in the marketplace, but Joyce Courtney is the créme da le créme. When the market crashed, she rose to the top, as she has consistently throughout her career. She is honest, up front, professional, very well connected and knowledgeable. I give Joyce my highest recommendation.
Heather Denniston

Joyce has been our realtor for over a decade, and there’s a simple reason why. Joyce is the only realtor we truly rely on time after time to provide not only us, but all of our friends and family that we’ve recommended to her with consistent service, trustworthiness, and a true passion for helping people find properties that are truly right for them. We’ve had bad experiences with other realtors before working with Joyce. She’s one of those individuals that really is passionate about her work and it shows in everything she does. Her network is built on referrals, and I without hesitation recommend her for any real estate need.
Len Davis

I first met Joyce through a referral in my move back to the Chicago area in 2000. I found myself very frustrated working with a real estate agent referred to me by my relocation company who was not listening to my needs and was not very familiar with the area when someone told me I must call Joyce. Calling Joyce made all of the difference in our move and beyond! Joyce not only listens, but from the very first meeting and throughout the years since, she has consistently demonstrated the highest level of client care and support that I have ever experienced. Joyce has helped us to find the right house twice now and has done the same for dozens of people that I have referred to her. What really sets Joyce above all others is that she not only supports her clients to find their new home, she also provides them with and welcomes them into the wonderful community of relationships that she has built over the years by being who she is. With Joyce we found our homes, our neighborhoods, and a full community of support and connections throughout the ten years since – now that’s client service like I have never experienced before! I give Joyce my highest level of recommendation.
Ann Farrell

Joyce, it struck me that in the craziness of leaving St. Charles and trying to settle in here in the Philippines I neglected to adequately express our gratitude to you and your staff for your capable handling of the marketing and sale of our home. Thank you. I found you to be the consummate professional: Knowledge, both of your industry with its regulations and intricacies, and my local market. Accessible and responsive to my inquiries and needs. Plain-spoken, always telling me “like it is” and helping me understand the nuances of the process. Timely and efficient, whether printing and delivering additional information sheets or communicating replies to negotiations – it was all handled effectively. And just plain delightful to work with. Thank you for a job well done. I hope our paths cross again.
Pat Meyer

I am sure you hear all the time “We really like working with you.” Perhaps what you don’t often hear is why. Your initial presentation, based on mathematical analysis, was by far the most thorough of any presentation we had by any of the four Realtors we interviewed. You clearly put a lot of time and thought into it. You did not pressure us to list with you at all. Your initial analysis of how we should price our house and what our house would sell for was very accurate and higher than any of the other realtors. Your presentation of the property from its staging to printed materials, was very well reviewed by prospective buyers. Your promise to “shake the trees” among local agents to find us a buyer interested in preserving our historic property yielded exactly such a buyer through a local agent. Your advice about timing the presentation of our house on the market was very accurate. We had a contract which lead to a sale within 10 days of marketing the house. Your handling negotiations was highly professional. You looked out for our interests and you kept the tone pleasant. Your handling of paperwork was nothing short of amazing. The fact that you use both electronic and supportive print documentation was very much appreciated. Your demeanor was always pleasant and your personal presentation highly professional. You treated everyone involved with dignity. You stood by us throughout the process, even after the close of the deal when we had warranty issues. You gave us a lot of your time, as you continue to do, by keeping us abreast of the market, informing us about helpful tools and applications, and by inviting us to local events which you sponsor. In short, you are not just a full-time Realtor, but a full-service Realtor. We felt like we got a fair deal and the right buyer. We highly recommend you: you made the process of selling a house as pleasant as it could be!
Rita and Jeff Calvert

Joyce had a vision for the sale of our home for an amount that was (she did not know this) 20% above a recent professional appraisal and 20% more than what we expected. It sold for the full amount in two weeks. Joyce also helped us with our move out of state after the sale. She is awesome!
Pat and Elaine Phillips

Extremely professional. Great to work with Joyce and her staff. Invaluable experience! We sold our home in St. Charles and bought another home with more property. Joyce has also handled our rental properties for the last 10 years. We purchased a vacation home with her assistance as well.
Kate & Eric Kirchner

Joyce is a fantastic realtor. She helped us with the purchase of our home 15 years ago and has been a wonderful referral source for many years. When it came time to sell our house again, she was always there to answer any questions. Her team has been with her and have always taken care of us. You will not find a better realtor who knows the market.
Brenda and Al Tiedke

Joyce helped us move to Kane County from downtown Chicago with the rental and ultimate sale of our first home. We didn’t think twice when it came to buying our current home with Joyce. Great from first meeting to closing. Thanks a lot Joyce!
Erin and Mary Schutte

Joyce worked with my wife and I in the purchase of our home and did an EXCELLENT job end to end from the beginning of the process all the way through closing! She has helped my in-laws and other family members purchase and sell multiple homes and is not just a realtor, she is a trusted adviser. Joyce is patient, experienced, friendly and most importantly super knowledgeable. I WILL use Joyce in the future should we look to purchase another home.
Dan and Amy Bulauski

In comparison to other homes I have purchased, this was by far the best experience I’ve ever had. Joyce and her team were extremely proactive and made the whole process go smoothly. In addition, the network of professionals Joyce could call on for home inspections, estimates, or repairs is a big plus. Look no further for a realtor.
Kevin Russell

I have known Joyce for over 19 years. She was our first realtor when we moved here to the Western Suburbs. Once our family started to expand, so did our needs for a bigger house. She has helped us buy three homes. Each time she has been responsive and professional. She is extremely knowledgeable and we wouldn’t trust to go to anyone else to purchase or sell a home. Joyce and her staff are first rate
Sue Terwilliger

I have been served by many real estate agents during the last several years, and I definitely have been most highly impressed by the professional assistance provided by Jenn and Joyce Courtney. They are by far the most honest, competent, dedicated, well-informed, and responsive real estate agents among all of those with whom I have worked. They provided fist-rate help last year, when I needed to purchase two houses in Geneva, Illinois within a very short span of time. Also, they have demonstrated a very high level of property management expertise as the rental and management agents of the two houses I purchased. Because I live a considerable distance from Geneva, where the two houses are located, I am very grateful for all of the highly effective real estate assistance that Jenn and Joyce Courtney have provided. I would recommend them to anyone who wants help from the very best professional real estate agents.
Lance Blakesley

Joyce was an absolute delight to work with, she responded quickly to our questions, was always available to meet with us when needed, and was extremely knowledgeable in regards to the housing market. I would 100% recommend her!

Happy Seller and Buyer

Joyce & her team were great to work with on the sale of our home. She was knowledgeable – and her professionalism and experience proved to be very valuable. From the listing to the closing – we were kept informed and up to speed on everything to expect. Let it be staging, updated recommendations, handling negotiations (We received multiple offers that competed) to referring an experienced legal team to review paperwork and closing. Her process was sound and we feel maximized the overall offer we accepted. Great experience – Highly recommend.
Happy Home Seller

Joyce has helped us with the sale and purchase of three homes. She is a pleasure to work with and her advice has saved us thousands of dollars. I’d highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.
Pat Hoffstetter

Your home is the most important investment in your life so why wouldn’t you want someone that has your back and handles the entire process very professionally? Joyce Courtney is that person. After interviewing several other realtors she was the one person we wanted to represent us.

I would give Joyce 10 stars if there was an option. My wife and I have bought and sold multiple homes in the last few years, and Joyce has been the best. She has a clear understanding of the market and was very responsive to our concerns. She has an extensive network of referrals for almost any need imaginable. She will guide you through what can be a stressful process as if you were a family member. Joyce also has wonderful, responsive staff in her office should she not be available. My wife and I have absolutely no reservations referring Joyce to friends and family.
Happy Client

Joyce was exceptional! Very professional, knowledgeable, and patient! She helped us find a house and sell a house. We had a great experience and we will recommend her over and over again.

Joyce did an OUTSTANDING job working with us to locate a good area and on negotiating the price. Not only did she help us with the purchase of the house, but with providing excellent recommendations for home security systems, and handymen. We highly recommend anyone to use Joyce for the purchase of a home!
