With over 25 years invested in her professional career as a Broker, Joyce brings a wealth of knowledge about the process from start to finish.

She has been power boating and sailing since she was a child. Her Dad was one of the founding fathers of the Wild Harbor Yacht Club (WHYC) in North Falmouth in 1950. Growing up summers it was not unusual for the Richards family to own up to 5 power and sail boats at one time, so no wonder she has such an affection for and vast knowledge of boating.

Her summers in New Silver Beach/Wild Harbor hold the (eliminte best replace with: hold years of boating memories for her – and she frequently refers to them as “those happiest of days.” As a child, she raced Beetle Cats, Classic Herreshoff 12 ½’s and Widgeons at WHYC.

With her knowledge and love of the water she became a Broker after college. For twelve years, she focused on sport fishing boats between 33-50′ for a regional yacht sales company and received her 100 Ton Coast Guard Captain’s License.

An opportunity arose and she became The Regional Auto Physical Damage Supervisor for Amica Mutual Insurance, but her love of the water encouraged her to return to her career as a Broker and she joined our team.

Since then, her sales success and the consistent praise of her clients is proof she is doing what she does best – getting people on the water by finding the best match for their interests.

A member of the Falmouth Yacht Club since 1978, you will often find her on the water enjoying her own boat.

Joyce’s boats over the past 35 years have included a 24′ Sea Ray, 23′ Formula, 31′ Sea Ray, 280S Formula, 21′ Aqua Sport, 24′ Formula and currently, she’s zooming around in a 29ZF Donzi Center Console. She likes to mix it up!
