Get to know Joyce Jewell
Jewell Real Estate Agency is a family owned and operated realty that lives up to its motto, "Modern Technology, Old-Fashioned Service". We answer phones 6am to 9pm EVERYDAY. When you deal with us, you are always working with Joyce and Douglas Jewell, two experienced real estate brokers. The buck stops here.
Jewell Real Estate Agency offers the ultimate in client service - we answer our telephones 6am to 9pm, 365 days a year. That's right! You can reach us at your convenience without the confinement of the "9 to 5" mentality. You're able to talk business with your realtor before going to work in the morning, or in the evening when your day is winding down. And no more frustrating weekends where you have to wait until Monday when the office is open again to contact your agent about a promising property you spotted in your travels.
Our highly visible Wildwood Crest office is open 8am to 5pm. That makes buying or selling a property on the island easy and convenient. The Swainton office, which is attached to our home, is open 7am to 7pm. If you list "FOR SALE" property with us, you have comfort in knowing that buyers and other real estate agents have access to information about your property 15 hours a day, not just the standard 40 hours a week.
Jewell Real Estate Agency is all about "information". The latest technology, instant access to Cape May County's Multiple Listing Service, digital camera imagery, e-mail and faxing, plus our web site (http://www.jewellrealestateagency.com/), make the gathering and exchange of information fast and easy. The office also has information at its fingertips which others can't supply - that vital info you need about schools, ratables, recreation facilities, services, etc.
Jewell Real Estate Agency is a member of the Cape May County Association of Realtors, the New Jersey Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors. The office serves 14 of the county's 16 municipalities (Ocean City and most of Upper Township belong to the Atlantic County Board of Realtors) with sales of residential homes, condominiums and townhouses, lots, and commercial properties.
Douglas Jewell brings a unique perspective to the business with his background in surveying and having built two homes for himself from the ground up. As an active environmentalist, smart growth advocate, and former newspaper reporter, he has accumulated a keen knowledge of zoning, planning, infrastructure, land use, and future trends in the county.
Douglas specializes in finding commercial properties for buyers, especially restaurants and bars, motels, apartment buildings, and Boardwalk enterprises. He has a good command of profit/loss requirements and debt service, justifiable property upgrades for increased profits, and which businesses have been under-utilized or poorly managed and show future increased profit potential.
Douglas has earned the prestigious GRI designation - which stands for Graduate Real Estate Institute - a degree held by less than 5 percent of all realtors nationwide. He followed that by continuing his real estate education and earning his broker status.
Joyce Jewell brings her many years of intimate knowledge and expertise about vacation home sales and rental property management to the family business. She is particularly familiar with condominium and townhome properties in the Wildwood Crest and Diamond Beach areas.
Joyce has an uncanny knack for finding the right property for her clients and helping make their dreams come true. One of her greatest pleasures is having continuing relationships with her past clients, and she truly enjoys spending time chatting with her frequent visitors.
Joyce is proud of her achievements as a realtor, having obtained her GRI and broker designations, plus numerous sales awards. She is also connected to her community having been a member of the Middle Township Zoning Board for 24 years.
Experienced realtors know the tip off when Buyers have found the right property - it's the twinkle in their eyes. The potential purchasers thoughts are reverberating, "This is it. This is me. I fit here." The property seems to figuratively wrap its arms around the Buyers as if to say, "Welcome Home!"
For Sellers, their mission is to make their home as appealing as possible to potential purchasers. The Buyers need to be swept off their feet when they first enter your home. First impressions are everything. It's that "warm, fuzzy feeling" that turns prospects into Buyers.
In the tight Buyers real estate market of 2007, which is vastly different from the Sellers market of 2002-2005, a property needs to stand out from the others in order to be sold in a timely manner at a good price. Plainly stated, there is currently an overabundance of residential inventory.
A Seller needs an edge - an advantage - to make their property stand out in the crowd. That's where Cape May Home Seller Consulting can help. We offer a neutral prospective - a skilled and trained third eye to transform, mold, and showcase your property.
Joyce Jewell brings her 33 years of knowledge as a New Jersey licensed realtor to Cape May Home Seller Consulting. In the last 10 years alone she has sold over 300 homes worth over $125 million. She has personally toured over 7,000 homes and condominiums with her thousands of clients. She's judged their reactions, heard their likes and dislikes, and seen firsthand the qualities and characteristics that captivate Buyers.
Joyce, besides being the broker/owner of her own real estate firm, has earned the distinction of being an Accredited Staging Professional (ASPTM) and she belongs to the International Association of Home Staging Professionals (IAHSP).
Statistics show that a staged home sells on average for 7% more money than the same home if not staged, and it sells in half the time. Put into dollars, that means an unstaged home that would sell for $300,000 would fetch about $320,000 when staged, and an unstaged home that would get $500,000 would bring in $535,000 if staged. Hmmm. Prospective Buyers also spend twice as much time viewing a staged home versus a home untouched by a staging professional.
