Joy Van Gilder

Meet Joy. Born and raised in Tuscon, AZ, she started her career working for Travelers Insurance Company, after earning her business degree from the University of Arizona. She was soon transferred to Denver with their employee benefits department and absolutely fell in love with the city; she’s been here ever since.

Joy’s favorite part of working in insurance was the people – her clients. Retiring from that industry to raise her two boys, Joy stayed busy remodeling several residences and integrally involved in building their current family home.

She has always had a love for architecture, design, building, and real estate, and jumped at the opportunity to join the Slifer Denver team. With a knack for feng sui and interior design, she loves helping her clients beautifully stage their properties. And, with investment properties in Denver and abroad, she understands the needs of RE investors and good property management.

Joy and her husband Andy reside in Observatory Park with two boys, Jack and Joe, and two dogs Fido and Frisco. She has lived in and around Denver from high-rises on Speer to townhouses in Englewood as well as residences in BB, Belcaro and Wash Park. She loves golf, skiing, yoga, pilates, traveling, horseback riding and mystery books and games with her family.

Fun Fact: Joy is our resident feng shui guru.
