Joy Daniels
Joy Daniels Real Estate Group, Ltd
About Joy

Thirty years ago, Joy Daniels had just become a Realtor and was juggling her role as a businesswoman while simultaneously being a wife and home schooling her son. Due to her hard work and passion for real estate, Joy quickly became the most sought-after multi-million dollar agent in Central Pennsylvania. With the help of her husband's business development skills, Joy and Chris started Joy Daniels Real Estate Group in 2010 with about four employees. In two short years, they have grown to 42 employees! Many people all over the United States often contact Joy on a regular basis, asking her, "What's the secret to your success?" The answer is amazing customer service and Joy's commitment to impacting the community through ethical business practices. Joy has been a full-time real estate agent for twenty-seven years. She didn't earn a reputation as Central Pennsylvania's best real estate agent by chance, however. Joy's first job was at McDonald's! Joy is a "go getter"! She chose to pursue a career as a real estate agent because of her love for homes, both new and old and the desire to help people achieve their real estate needs. Although she has won numerous prestigious real estate awards, her "joy" and motivation is in serving her clients and community. Joy has lived in Central Pennsylvania since she was 13. She adores living in a community of rich history and close proximity to major metropolitan areas such as Washington D.C., Philadelphia and New York City. Passionate about improving the local economy of Central Pennsylvania, Joy is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the PA Association of Realtors, the Greater Harrisburg Association of Realtors (GHAR) and is on the board for the GHAR Political Action Committee. She has also participated in many benefits for the Cancer Society, The American Heart Association and Children's Arthritis Foundation. JDREG also spearheaded the fundraising for ABC's Makeover: Home Edition for a Central Pennsylvania winner. Joy and Chris have a blended family, albeit a very closely-knit one. Joy's stepson, Jeff, works as a Buyer's Specialist with JDREG, and coincidentally is married to the company's Chief Financial Officer! Joy also has a stepdaughter, Nadine, who has blessed them with a gorgeous granddaughter, Rachael. Joy's son, Jarad, now attends law school at George Washington University. Her mother-in-law lives with them in Harrisburg, and the family also has two cats: Winston and Olivia. Joy attends the Harrisburg Campus of LCBC (Lives Changed By Christ). She is currently part of the church's initiative to mentor "20 Somethings". Specializing in Seller Representation, Joy likes being the "go to person" in the office, helping new agents learn the real estate industry and achieve their goals and aspirations. Joy is a leader in the community and strives to leave a legacy behind of hard work, commitment to her clientele, and ethical entrepreneurship.

Jim Bedorf
Coldwell Banker
About Jim

Jim Bedorf and Justin Prince have been honored with a recognition by Realtrends.com in its selection of "America's Best Real Estate Agents: Top Teams In Pennsylvania. They have also received The International President's Circle, The Platinum Award of Excellence and the 100% Club Award. "Since being formed in late-2004, The Bedorf-Prince Team has consistently ranked in the Top 1-5% among Central PA Real Estate Professionals. Breaking into the business in 2004, Jim and Justin quickly identified two areas of focus that have afforded them continued success; one - the world, and subsequently the industry, is changing quickly and often. two - people will always want to be treated like people. Focusing on these two factors allowed Jim and Justin to see the advantages of offering a Team of experts, as opposed to the traditional jack-of-all-trades, master-of-none approach. This focus, coupled with a thirst for market knowledge and cutting edge marketing techniques, have guided The Bedorf-Prince Team over the past 16 years. As the consumer’s expectations of their Realtor grows, so does the Realtor’s need for a team of experts, each with specific disciplines. This conclusion, along with careful consideration of Coldwell Banker corporate depth and continued commitment to front-edge industry technology, led Jim and Justin to move The Bedorf-Prince Team to the Coldwell Banker umbrella in October 2012. This merger will allow Jim and Justin to continue to grow The Team’s business through increased visibility while offering a new level of depth in the customer service department. As longtime residents of Central PA with an ever growing network of family, friends and past clients, Jim and Justin recognize the importance of providing a Real Estate experience unlike any other in the area. Their commitment is to provide a depth of expertise on their team allowing them to focus on the ultimate goal...SOLD, without compromising the increasing level of detail needed to successfully close each and every transaction. Without satisfied customers it is impossible to reach our goals in this business!

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Hershey?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload. Selling a home takes an enormous amount of work, so you need an agent who’s got a plan for prep, pricing, and marketing and who is ready to roll up their sleeves to get the job done.
Read more
How important is it to hire a top real estate agent in Hershey?
Our data shows that the top 5% of listing agents sell homes for as much as (+9%) more than the average real estate agent. A great agent makes a difference when you buy a house, too: We’ve found that the top 5% of buyer's agents on average save their clients 2.5% more on their home purchase. So, whether you’re in the market to find your dream home or sell your house at a great price, the right agent matters. We encourage you to connect with a top real estate agent if you’re buying or selling a home in Hershey, PA.
Read more
When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Hershey?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date. When you start the search for an agent several months before hitting the market, there’s plenty of time to find the best agent, make key renovations, and market your home effectively, all of which are essential steps in selling your home for a great price. You can also hire an agent based on the best time to sell in Hershey to take advantage of seasonal and cyclical trends in the market. The right time to hire a real estate agent depends on the temperature of the housing market. For example, the best time to sell in Hershey is in May. And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
Read more

While individual real estate agent commissions do vary, most real estate agents work for 6% of the home price.
