Prior to real estate, Joy served as a top-level regional and national sales manager at Victoria's Secret for 18 years—a role that solidified Joy's ability to lead teams of employees, set and achieve goals, convey resonant stories via compelling marketing strategies and further hone her concierge-level customer service skills. A devoted community member, Joy supports several non-profits, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, Haven and Eagle Mount, which provides therapeutic recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and young people with cancer. Joy loves traveling to the world's best beaches with her son and daughter-in-law and exploring Montana's back roads with her dog, Lilly.

“Bozeman offers a wide clientele base, from first-time home buyers to high networth individuals, and this booming real estate market holds perfect synergy with The Agency’s global brand and vast network,” says Joy Vance. “I couldn’t be more honored to bring The Agency to clients in my home state as we introduce the brand’s unparalleled offerings to Bozeman.”

With solid infrastructure and a renowned brand that is featured on international television shows including Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, and Buying Beverly Hills, which debuted on Netflix November 4th. The Agency has grown to more than 60 corporately-owned and franchise offices across the globe, making it one of the fastest-growing luxury boutique brokerages in the world.
