Legendary Beverly Hills real estate professional and member of the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury® program, Joyce Rey, has been inducted into the first class of the Inman Golden I Club Hall of Fame. Rey was one of only two inductees to the Golden I Club Hall of Fame and the only real estate agent, chosen out of over 80 nominees from around the world.
The Inman Golden I Club is “nothing less than the highest honor in luxury real estate,” according to Inman. The Golden I honors the top luxury agents and brokers and the most innovative luxury home and new development marketing campaign of the past year, as well as the top luxury deals in cities, beaches and mountains.
Rey took a lot of pride in the award, noting: “It is an extreme honor to be part of an inaugural program of such importance in our industry. I have an energetic spirit and am always committed to excellence in everything I do. I could not have achieved this honor without my wonderful clientele, fabulous staff and colleagues, and sensational friends and family.”
Ryan Gorman, President and Chief Executive Officer of NRT (a division of the Coldwell Banker® brand), added: “Joyce not only embodies the consummate luxury real estate professional, but her generosity of spirit is as legendary as her sales career. She has taught so many so much — including me — always seeking nothing in return but for all of us to pay it forward.”
Craig Hogan, vice president of luxury for Coldwell Banker Real Estate LLC, was also proud of Rey’s accomplishment, especially given her long-time contributions to the real estate profession. “Joyce is one of those professionals in our industry who lead and give effortlessly,” he said. “She is genuine and helpful to all, which is a rare quality to encounter in a competitive industry like luxury real estate.”
Rey is known as one of the most influential figures in the real estate industry and has been described as the “First Lady of Luxury Real Estate.” Over her 46-year career, Joyce has mentored others, been a passionate philanthropist and has truly set the standard of customer care, making her the ideal inductee for the Inman Golden I Hall of Fame.
As one of the most respected names in top-tier real estate worldwide, Rey has amassed more than USD 4 billion in career sales. Rey continues to break records and represent some of L.A.’s most iconic estates.
With a dazzling list of accolades, awards, and sales records, she is known, most of all, for her incomparable knowledge of the luxury marketplace, her acute ability to negotiate even the most complex transactions, and her particular talent for putting clients at ease. It is Rey’s commitment to “integrity, innovation, and attention to detail” that has led to her iconic status. Along the way, her name has consistently been included on “best of” lists for both her real estate production and her personal and professional influence. Again and again, she has topped records—including some of her own—for highest sales price ever.
