Joy Doherty, Associate Broker, ABR, CRS, GRI

Since 1988 it has been my pleasure to bring many buyers and sellers like you together to make a house their home. I have loved raising my family in Prescott and experiencing its growth, and am delighted to share that experience with you.
Born in South Dakota, I was raised in the Illinois suburbs and Louisiana bayous, moving to Prescott in 1980. I started my career in real estate in Prescott in 1988, after having enjoyed many years as a wife, mother and co-owner of a construction company.
We appreciate your consideration in choosing The Doherty Group as your Real Estate Professionals. We work hard for our clients and have been consistently named as top producers, both in the Prudential Foothills family and currently with Realty Executives.
Statistics show that making a move is at the top of the stress charts, and it is our goal to make your transition in the Quad Cities as stress-free as possible. We are always available to answer questions or concerns and we look forward to meeting with you in the near future.
Knowing it’s in my client’s best interest I take my real estate education very seriously, and as a result have earned multiple designations.

Associate Broker, ABR, CRS, GRI
Associate Broker

I earned my Associate Broker’s license in 1992. As an Associate Broker, I am someone who has taken additional education classes and earned a broker's license but chooses to work under the management of a Designated Broker.


In 1993 I earned my Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI), the mark of a real estate professional that has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation.
CRS – Certified Residential Specialist
In 1995 I met the education and professional requirements and was designated a Certified Residential Specialist. The CRS Designation means we have qualified as “one of the best of the best.” Out of more than 1 million REALTORS®, less than 3% are Certified Residential Specialists.
ABR – Accredited Buyers Representative
I achieved my ABR designation in 1996. The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This designation demonstrates to peers and consumers my commitment to providing outstanding service for real estate buyers.

Realty Executives
In the spring of 2006 I made the decision to move to Realty Executives after 14 years with Prudential Foothills Real Estate. During my time with Prudential I worked my way up the professional ladder, and in March of 1997 I was awarded The Chairman’s Circle award, reflecting the 4th consecutive year for this recognition. The Chairman’s Circle award is one of the highest awards given by Prudential, it reflects the top productivity of only 2% of all of the more than 42,000 Prudential Real Estate Sales Associates in the United States and Canada. I consistently was awarded President’s circle, #1 Selling Associate, Leading Edge and Top of the Rock just to name a few.

Since my move to Realty Executives in 2006, I have been consistently awarded as a top producing agent:
•    Executive Club 2006 through 2015
•    2012 Silver Team Award - Gross Commission & Units
•    2013 Gold Award
•    2014 Silver Award, Bronze Award
•    2015 Diamond Award, 100% Club

Realty Executives is the largest and most successful Real Estate Company in Yavapai County, as well as the State of Arizona.  We are proud to be associated with Prescott’s Real Estate Leader since 2006.
If you engage with The Doherty Group, you will see how our years of experience, dedication and can-do attitude sets us apart from others in the industry.
