Raised by parents who were both educators, it was a natural course for me to seek higher levels of education within the real estate industry. Hence, all those letters after my name refer to being an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), a Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB), a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), Short Sale and Foreclosure Resource (SFR) and lastly, a Resort and Recreational Property Specialist. Bottom line, this list of credentials assures my clients that I am truly focused on my service to them.
I have been involved in luxury real estate since 1992 and have served clients in both luxury home purchases and new construction, and have worked within the sales teams with developers of subdivisions such as Eagle Bend, Harbor Village, Lake Pointe, Juniper Bend and Bigfork Landing. Being around new home construction and working with developers for years, I am very comfortable with the ins and outs of new home construction.
In 2004, I was honored to be recognized as the MONTANA STATE REALTOR OF THE YEAR. My education has prepared me to handle all types of residential property transactions and I strive to go above and beyond my client’s expectation in service. And I insist on being straight-forward with everyone I meet.
I left the sunny beaches of Hawaii after nearly 25 years and fell in love with Montana, with no regrets. There is never a day that goes by that I don’t pause to enjoy its beauty. And Bigfork is a very special community filled with shops and galleries and its people take a personal interest in our community’s direction.
Though my work as a real estate professional is my passion, my other loves are boating and golf, perennial gardening or playing with Taz, our mini-Aussiedoodle puppy.

Joyce Lawver Mitchell, Locations Montana Real Estate — Jan 12
We have worked with multiple realtors for previous home sales and purchases and Joyce, hands down, is the best we have ever worked with. She is an excellent communicator and negotiator and her responsiveness to all of our needs was superb. She is very intuitive and knows what will help sell in the market. She continuously went above and beyond meeting our needs, which we thank her greatly for! Selling or purchasing a home from afar is not an easy task, but with the right broker, Joyce, representing us, we knew we were in good hands!

Joyce assisted us in two separate real estate transactions. Throughout both she was responsive, communicative, efficient. Her knowledge of the area, knowledge of the ins and outs of the real estate business, and personal integrity make her the only agent we'd turn to.

Joyce was very professional, knowledgeable and dedicated to our needs throughout the entire home search & buying process. We feel very comfortable recommending her to any of our friends looking to buy or sell a house in the Flathead area.
Paul and Madeline Clegg — Oct 24, 2016
I have engaged Joyce Mitchell in the buying and selling of at least three real estate parcels over the past 12 years. She is very knowledgeable about her profession in all aspects of real estate, hard working, and trustworthy. I am a retired businessman, and she is the best I have ever used in handling my real estate matters. She's a pro and it would be difficult to find a better one.

Ann an I have known Joyce for over 30 years. We have only had couple of real estate transactions and found Joyce to be genuinely concerned about our needs. She gave us advice that satisfied us without consideration as to the final outcome. Joyce is still there for us whenever we have any questions concerning the property that we still own.Joyce has an outstanding reputation not only in the Flathead Valley , but all of Montana

I've been a real estate investor for nearly 30 years and have owned property in 10 states. Of all the brokers I've ever worked with, Joyce Mitchell is one of the best. You wouldn't expect to find someone of her caliber in small town, Montana. She is incredibly well-respected by her peers, loved by her clients and appreciated by her friends. She's honest, tenacious, professional and at the same time, funny, and delightful to work with. I would highly recommend Joyce to represent either a buyer or a seller, and I truly don't believe you'll ever find a broker that you'll appreciate more.

We are truly happy with her professional and knowledgeable guidance. Joyce knows this area, the amenities, and all this area has to offer a prospective buyer. Her integrity has been evident throughout this entire process."

"Joyce is one of the most amazing people to work for and with! I worked for her for a couple of years and I can honestly say that I still look up to her, she gave me an example of someone with business ethics, passion for what she does and honestly caring about the people she works with. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a Realtor. To her its not just about a commission it's about relationships and really making sure that her clients are happy!"

I believe the fact that you handled the purchase and sale of our two homes, plus my recommending the nearby neighbor’s condo in our complex, demonstrates our faith in your ability to get the job done without a hitch. The neighbors were surprised and thankful to sell in 5 days! Your experience and knowledge surely pays off! Our sincere thanks!”

What we’ve liked best is that you treated us as friends, real people you didn’t mind spending time with. That our contract with you wasn’t Just Business…”
