Joyce Rey

Executive Director, Coldwell Banker Previews International

In 1978 when Joyce Rey sold the famed Sonny & Cher mansion for $4.2 million – more than double the amount anyone had ever paid for a home in the United States at the time – Joyce established her reputation for negotiating historic landmark estates and luxury residential sales. The following year she formed the first company in the United States to specialize in estates valued at more than $1 million. She spent the next three decades selling some of America’s most significant residences, setting record-after-record along the way. One of the most respected names in luxury real estate, and arguably the most decorated Beverly Hills real estate agent, Joyce earned the distinction of being the #1 Coldwell Banker real estate agent in the world in June 2011 and in 2012 “The Joyce Rey Team” was #1 on the West Coast, logging almost $300 million in residential real estate transactions. In 2010, Joyce oversaw the sale of “Le Belvédère,” the nation’s highest priced sale at the time. Joyce is the foremost leader for Beverly Hills to Malibu amassing nearly $2 billion in career sales and has closed two sales in excess of $30 million in 2013.

Described as the “First Lady of Luxury Real Estate,” by the Chinese media, and the “Billionaire’s Broker,” by the Hollywood Reporter, Joyce consistently ranks among the nation’s top real estate agents in The Wall Street Journal’s “Real Trends,” and has also been a constant member of the Society of Excellence, Coldwell Banker’s highest honor. Her track record of success continues to capture media attention, most recently culminating in her inclusion in Elle Magazine’s “2012 Women in Hollywood Power List,” and garnering her a front page cover story as one of 2013 Haute Living’s “100 Most Influential Angelenos,” where they distinguished her as a top power player. Her recent accolades also include being chosen as one of the “35 Most Influential People in Luxury Real Estate,” by Unique Homes; a Global Image Leader Award by the Los Angeles Business Journal, and “Business Woman of the Year,” by the Los Angeles Business Council. She has won an unprecedented three awards from LuxuryRealEstate.com; Extraordinary Philanthropist, Most Prestigious Listing and Billionaire’s Club. A longtime member of the Board of Realtors and the Chamber of Commerce, Joyce earned the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award from the Greater Los Angeles Board of Realtors.

Recognized all over the world as a luxury real estate authority, and with an unsurpassed reputation amongst Beverly Hills real estate agents, Joyce is frequently called upon by the international press to offer her expertise. She has been widely quoted in Forbes Magazine, The Wall Street Journal and the Robb Report and has appeared on television in the E-Entertainment News with Michael Corbett and on CNN’s Money Shot, amongst others. Known for her superb communication skills, she has also served as a key speaker at UCLA and for the National Association of Realtors, Women’s National Congress, YPO Graduate Forum and the Governor’s Conference for Women.

Despite the demands of her business, Joyce remains passionately dedicated to philanthropic projects as well. She serves on the Southern California Executive Board for the US Fund for UNICEF and also served on the Board of Directors for the Blue Ribbon Committee at the Music Center and with organizations such as LA Alive, the Los Angeles Library Foundation, St. Joseph’s Center for the Homeless, the Coldwell Banker Community Foundation Board, American Cancer Society, Women President’s Organization, and the International Day of the Child. Her civic and charitable contributions have been honored by the National Women’s Political Committee and the Anti-Defamation League. She has long been a member of the highly selective International Women’s Forum – The Trusteeship.

Joyce Rey’s luxury real estate expertise, negotiating power, integrity and passion for personal service are nothing short of inspiring. Today, she remains as dedicated to her celebrated clients’ best interests as her own – which encompass film, art, music, world travel, yoga, and helping others. She has resided for many years in an award-winning Mid-Century Modern home in Beverly Hills, but it doesn’t give her as much joy as placing her outstanding clients in their own beautiful residences!
