A LETTER FROM SONDRA JOYCE TO PROSPECTIVE BUYERS
Greetings to you from South West Colorado! I welcome you into our community here and look forward to serving you and your buying needs.
Just a bit about myself and why I do the work I do. I bought my first house in Colorado when I was just 23. I have enjoyed buying, selling, and investing in real estate since my 20’s. I see our personal homes as an extension of self, an opportunity to create an atmosphere conducive to the particular needs of each person residing there. I have studied Feng Shui extensively with an architect. I am passionate and fascinated about homes, land, and investment properties. I am part owner of Animas Square, a commercial property with health practitioners as tenants, and 5 residential rental properties as well as owning my own “green” home.
I grew up in the Denver suburbs and am a native Coloradoan. I come from a large and fun loving family. I have roots here in the area, as my great grandfather, John T Joyce, emigrated to Silverton from Ireland. He was a miner, the editor of the Silverton Newspaper, and a state senator from the area in 1912! My grandfather graduated from Durango High School.
My background before 17 years in real estate includes counseling, owning a spa, heading an international health organization, public speaking and business team building for small businesses.
I moved here in 2000 to raise my son, now graduated from Animas High Charter School, and to be close to other family members. I had a dream as a little girl of coming back here and am thankful I did. I currently live in a cohousing community called Heartwood, near Bayfield. We have 250 acres, horses, llamas, chickens, an organic garden, tennis courts and several hiking and biking trails. Though people joke about us being “hippies” we are not. Heartwood is home to several professionals including a medical doctor, two nurse practitioners, a chiropractor, caterer, two lawyers, internet marketing specialists, a dance therapist, real estate investor, accountant and some awesome stay at home parents.
If you are looking for someone with a personal touch, who can assist you in the buying process, let’s connect. I truly look forward to meeting you.
All my best from Sondra!
