When it comes to choosing a Realtor, you have lots of choices. It’s that way in most service businesses. Joy Carter didn’t even know what a realtor was until she became one. She achieved her real estate license after her parents were taken advantage of by a realtor and lost a lot of money, due to bad advice. Rather than be bitter, because she was, Joy knew that she could not make a difference if she wasn’t in the profession. This became her ultimate, ‘WHY”!…to prove that Realtors are “Good, Honest, Caring People”.
Joy had no idea at the time that her passion would lead her to form a real estate team. The Great Florida Homes Team, as it came to be known, is now recognized in the top 1% in the nation for production. REAL ESTATE IS ABOUT YOU! What is important to you in a place to call HOME? The Team’s business grew to more than Joy could manage by herself and she needed assistance. Julie Mello was the Team’s first hire and has now been with the Team for 25 years, as their Administrator. Next, Joy pleaded with her younger brother, Jeff Booker, to join the Team as their masterful negotiator. Jeff was previously a real estate instructor and trainer on the Multiple Listing system. Then Joy and Jeff’s Mom took over the bookkeeping. Lastly, Joy’s oldest daughter, Tara Carter, joined the Team in topping off the Team’s concierge service.
As they grew, Joy joined an elite group of professionals that consists of less than 5% of the real estate industry. Team members are constantly improving their skill sets in order to stay ahead of an always changing real estate market. Buyers and Sellers are looking for Realtors who are well versed in the latest technologies of the industry, as well as Luxury Homes, first time home buyer opportunities, home staging and negotiations that will benefit them. Regardless, if a client needs 2 days or 2 years to find the perfect home, the Great Florida Homes Team will follow through until their real estate needs are served and satisfied.
The Great Florida Homes Team specializes in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
Joy enjoys her participation in bringing the Arts to Coral Springs, in the Annual Festival. In dedication to lives lost in the tragic violence at the MSD school in Parkland, Joy joined the memorial committee to honor the 17 lives tragically taken. In service to her home community, Joy was elected to represent the residents as a Coral Springs City Commissioner, where she also served as the Vice Mayor and Mayor. She was also appointed as a representative for the Broward League of Cities and Board Member to the Florida League of Cities, where a larger platform is available to be the voice for County and State residents.
For FUN, Joy enjoys Pickleball, Golf and can even make a claim to a “Hole in One”!
