About Joy Castillo

I was born in NYC and grew up in Northern California. I have called the Denver Metro Area home since 1999. I have three die hard Coloradan daughters, who will never understand what it means to miss water (or to be cold.)

I have always been drawn to service, and I view real estate as such, ultimately. My roles as analyst, market specialist, advisor, contract expert, observer of design and demographic trends, listener and guide all enable me to serve the community, which fills me with purpose and satisfaction.

I studied Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley, and am active in the local chapter of my alumni club. I love to read, travel, hike, ride bikes, watch movies and listen to music. My happy place is with my family and friends, sharing food, lively discussions and (hopefully) singing and/or dancing. My first career was teaching school, and I often yearn for the days I taught works such as Harlem, Song of Myself and The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock to teenagers.

  • "Joy is a true professional and an absolute pleasure. She was a pit bull on my behalf all the while coaching me through a process that had changes since my last time in the market. You wont find a better teammate or realtor. Period."
    Kristen Roetker

  • "We started working with Joy Castillo as far back as February 2016 and it took us almost a year to find our 1st home. From the day we met, we were a team. Joy took great care in helping and guiding us all the way, even answering the most trivial of questions any time of the day. She was there with us every step of the way from initial sales contact with the builder till closing. She even worked with us to find a suitable lender. She's quite knowledgeable and had a lot of handy tips. She's thorough with paperwork and explained a lot of what the fine print means in a lengthy contract. It never felt to us that we were working with a realtor, she was more like a friend lending us a helping hand through high and low times. In short, our experience was nothing short of awesome."
    Jeyavel S.

  • "Joy Castillo listed and sold my Park Hill row house. The whole process was easier than I could have imagined, and Joy was a pleasure to work with throughout. I was very happy with the listing price and with PorchLight's staging and marketing. Joy was assertive about letting potential buyers know they had competition and getting great offers. The house sold in 72 hours, I had a choice of buyers, everything went so smoothly that we closed a week early, and I got a great profit on my house."
    Rachel Graves

  • "PorchLight has a great process to list your home starting with how to make your home more attractive to buyers, to the literature and finally the number of showings. Joy and Dina followed the process and did not miss a step. We received multiple offers and each offer was explained to us to help decide on the best one. Everything went extremely smooth. They were there at closing to make sure there were no issues. We received the proceeds from sale of the house the day of closing. The best thing was Joy and Dina set a schedule of events up front for listing date, showings and closing date. The schedule was met exactly as they set it up. Great job by the whole PorchLight team. I really liked the foldout brochure with the floor plan drawing."
    Craig Fischbach

  • "Years ago, I chose a new doctor. She was funny, brilliant and cool under pressure. I remember thinking that if I were in labor and one of the million little things that could come up did, I'd want her with me. Not just because she was a great doctor, because in those times, you want people who get you and whom you can trust implicitly. A few months ago, I made a similar choice picking Joy Castillo as my realtor. She has seen the worst in me: the whining, freaking, and crying. She has counseled me and guided me and is a trusted advisor. I cannot thank her enough for her wisdom and dedication. She is also funny and brilliant and a pit bull on behalf of her clients. I cannot recommend her highly enough and have no intention of doing any real estate business without her by my side. Joy, you are a delight! I adore you and am glad to count you as a friend. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! #DirtInDenver"
