Joyce Phipps founded Phipps Realty in 1976 just after moving to Rhode Island. A native of San Francisco, California, Joyce relocated many times across the country as an adult with her family.

She has been very involved in Realtor leadership including her Presidency of the Kent County Board of Realtors. She has been a pioneer for women in the industry over the past thirty-five years and was named Rhode Island Realtor of the Year in 1991. She was also a co-founder of the East Greenwich-Cowesett New Neighbors Organization and currently a member of the East Greenwich Rotary.
In addition to running a successful, dynamic real estate organization, she has also provided great training and mentoring to many professionals.
Among her interests are travel, reading, art, and family. She is the second generation of a four-generation tradition.
