Joy Opp , Broker Associate, Realtor

Joy is a Colorado native and grew up in Colorado Springs. She headed for the flat lands to go to the University of Kansas in Lawrence, and after graduating was drawn into the telecom industry with Sprint. After a few years in Kansas City, Joy decided it was time to get back to the mountains and was easily transferred home.

The suburbs just west of downtown felt safe for the young and single city newbie, and even after getting married and having a daughter, the west side is still where she calls home. Joy lives in the completely awesome and often overlooked neighborhood of Paramount Heights in Wheat Ridge. It’s the large lots and mid-century modern homes that are the big draw!

Joy entered real estate in 2004 and has become passionate about helping families find their perfect home. Joy has incredible design instinct and can stage a house like nobody’s business. In fact her atomic ranch home was featured in the Wheat Ridge Mid-Century and Modern Home Tour in 2010 and 2012.

Joy serves her community on the board of directors for Wheat Ridge Local Works overseeing the community building events in this great city. Wheat Ridge is getting more attention with the development of The Ridge at 38, and numerous events that bring people together.

What Clients Are Saying About Joy…

"Joy was recommended by a friend. I switched agents, and right away Joy noticed the online presence for my house was nonexistent. She fixed that, dealt with a challenging tenant, and sold the house! I recommend Joy!"
-Jan Tyler, Home Seller

"Joy helped sell my home in Highlands Ranch, Colorado. Aside from being a cool, down-to-earth, Rocky-Mountain-hiking woman, she is a professional who knows the real estate business very well. Time was an issue for us, because we were being relocated on very last minute notice across the country. Joy made the time to come out to our house quickly, gave us staging suggestions that worked, and was very efficient in listing our home. She also took great photos and wrote a lovely listing for our home. The results? OUR HOME SOLD WITHIN ONE DAY OF IT BEING LISTED. While this might not be typical, I cannot help but give credit to our awesome Realtor for this extraordinarily quick sale. I highly recommend Joy as a Realtor in the Denver area."
-Sadrian, Home Seller

"Joy is a great realtor! We started looking at homes when I was 7 months pregnant. Needless to say we were in a bit of a rush because our family was soon to be expanding. She helped us navigate potential neighborhoods and was very knowledgeable of the West suburbs of Denver. We found the perfect house for our family in just a few weeks! Joy is very personable yet professional as a realtor. Our closing was easy because she kept us on top of everything, too. Now I am proud mama and my 9 month old son I venture out with Joy, the original Colorado Mountain Mama, on hiking and stroller rides. If you choose Joy as your realtor you will not be disappointed!"
-Christina, Home Buyer

Q&A With Joy…

Where do you LIVE?
I live in the mid-century modern neighborhood of Paramount Heights in Wheat Ridge. The lots are huge enough for our German Short Hair to run wild all day long. The schools are among the best in the state, and the views of the mountains take my breath away each morning.

Why Real Estate... Aren't There Enough Agents On The Planet Already?
I love the flexibility and the diversity of duties in this career. On any given day I could be a tour guide, designer, inspector, accountant, plumber, and family counselor. If I had to do just one of these jobs I would get bored, so I like to think that Real Estate allows me the best of MANY careers!

What Music Is Currently On Your Playlist?
I can’t get enough of Apple Music, and my favorite “stations” MixTape, and Best of the 80s! Thank goodness for my Sonos music system so that I can keep these tunes playing in every room of my house.

What Cause Gets Your Time And Money?
I am a big advocate and supporter of Colorado Public Radio, and also serve the community on the board of directors for the non-profit organization Local Works in Wheat Ridge.

Give It Up. What Local Restaurant Is Your Best Kept Secret?
I am happy to share these secrets! Tellers Tap Room at 20th and Youngfield, Right Coast Pizza and Colorado Plus on 38th, and my new favorite: West 29th. Check out all of these west side gems!
